Guy Sebastian Jordin Sparks Live Duets

Guy Sebastian is playing a handful of west coast dates this week, including special guest appearances to duet with Jordin Sparks, before returning to his homeland to gear up for his participation as a celebrity judge alongside Natalie Imbruglia and Ronan Keating on the new season of The X Factor.

The dates are in support of his debut U.S. album Like It Like That, of which he says, “I wrote the music on this album based on how I feel when I listen to the Otis Reddings and the Wilson Picketts of the world. I’ll put that music on and it always just lifts me and makes me feel great. Music is so powerful. It’s powerful enough on a personal level, without me trying to change the world, ” says Guy. “I just want to change someone’s ten minutes on the way to work.”

Guy will perform with Jordin tonight and tomorrow night. Check out the rest of his tour dates at the link.


Target price for Live Nation Entertainment stock is lowered significantly

The target price for Live Nation Entertainment stock, which trades under the symbol LYV, has been lowered by an influential financial analyst as concerns about show cancellations continue to swirl around the ticketing and concert promotions giant.

‘So You Think You Can Dance Recap: This One Hurts

We should have seen it coming. After all, things looked too good to be true on this season of So You Think You Can Dance. Over the past six seasons, not once had we come so close to crowning a winner that was actually — gasp! — the best dancer in the crop of contestants. Yes, we’ve loved our champions of years past, but most, if not all, were crowned based more on their personality than the way they pointed their feet. But, for once, we had a contender that not only warmed our hearts, but also blew our minds. Say it with me, fellow SYTYCD fans: We had Alex Freaking Wong.

“So You Think You Can Dance”: A rising star falls

It’s sort of funny that after the strong emotions following Wednesday night’s performance show, all the dances and controversial feedback didn’t really make any difference on the week’s elimination. Well, not “funny, ” really. Ironic, maybe, but moreover, the results are a bummer.
