Headlines: Jordin Sparks, David Archuleta, Lee DeWyze

Sundance Wins: Misty Head discusses life, husband, ‘The Voice’ – Admittedly, she is a little overwhelmed from the events of the past few days to months, but she is used to balancing responsibilities as she has worn the hats of mother, wife, friend and Sundance Head manager for several years. Even less than a week after her husband won, Misty found time to discuss her experiences with Sundance Head and ‘The Voice.’ How does she do it? “A lot of patience and a lot of coffee,” Misty said. “I think what keeps me balanced and going is just believing in (Sundance.) We’ve been together for 17 years and I’ve always known he’s talented – especially with his writing. And just seeing the way people react to him and never stopped believing that he could pursue this.” – Read more at Chron.com

A-Sides with Jon Chattman: Lee DeWyze’s Worth the “Weight” – Do you mind the moniker American Idol Winner before your name? Does it wear on you at all? I wouldn’t say that I “mind” it per say. I would however say that coming off of a show like ‘American Idol’ , there is a fine line to walk at times. Specifically when it comes to putting out new music. For some, the term ‘American Idol Winner’ means one thing, and to another, something widely different. Not everyone that comes off that show is the same. In fact, no one that comes off that show are the same. I’m a songwriter that won American Idol. I am not an ‘American Idol’ winner that won, and suddenly started writing music. That said, I will always appreciate what the show has done for me early in my career, and will always be thankful to those who watched, and voted. I want people to listen to the music I’m making. – Read more at Huffington Post

David Johnson, Jordin Sparks deliver teddy bears to kids at PCH – Seventeen-year-old Malik Fitch got a bit of a surprise by Cardinals running back David Johnson and singer Jordin Sparks today. “It’s beautiful that they come and help and give little things like this because it means a lot,” he said. “Oh man, like what else can you say… you’re meeting Jordin Sparks. Crazy.” Many players and Jordin Sparks walked around Phoenix Children’s Hospital and handed our uniformed teddy bears to children in the pediatric units. “To be able to bring some of the holiday spirit and also the football spirit to these kids, who can’t be there, you know,” Sparks said. “They’re here in the hospital. They would rather be anywhere else, so to be able to be here and bring a smile to their face, that’s amazing.” – Read more at FOX 10

Reality TV’s Next Frontier: Networks’ Push to Own Shows – Future hits may not present the same obstacle. Media companies increasingly are looking to own the unscripted series they air, much as they do the scripted ones. In fact, 2016 saw NBCUniversal and CBS Studios form their own alternative operations in an effort to get in on the selling side — improving profitability with streaming deals and international sales and often lowering the pressure to generate ratings in an era of waning linear tune-in. (In the best-case scenario, a successful format can generate hundreds of millions of dollars.) “We’ve seen the business and economics on the other side, so we said, ‘Let’s double down and really invest in the content business,’ ” notes NBC Entertainment alternative group president Paul Telegdy, who already handed out series orders from his studio to a performance show from Jennifer Lopez (World of Dance), an entrepreneurial competition from Tyra Banks (Funded) and projects from LeBron James and Amy Poehler. “We had to take more control of the intellectual-property-creation process.” – Read more at The Hollywood Reporter
