Oklahoma State University Marching Band Pays Tribute to Carrie Underwood [Watch] – Okie Carrie Underwood got some big love from her home state when the Oklahoma State University marching band performed a double feature of two of her hits during Saturday’s (Oct. 25) homecoming game against West Virginia University. The band took the field during halftime to put on one heck of a show, delivering Underwood’s ’Cowboy Cassanova’ and ‘Before He Cheats’ for a packed stadium. The announcer even gushed beforehand that the ‘American Idol’ hitmaker is “one of America’s greatest singers” before the band led into ‘Cowboy Cassanova,’ during which they created the shape of a cowboy hat on the field. The made their last formation before starting the second song, shuffling around the field to eventually create a big — literally — shoutout to the singer. The band spelled out “C. Underwood” on the field before “We Are Cowboys,” an outline of Oklahoma and the word “home.” – Read more at Taste of Country

‘It’s One Of Our Favourite Places In The World To Play’: Daughtry On UK Fans And Tour Life – As he hovered somewhere between Tokyo and Singapore, we caught up with Chris Daughtry, the band’s lead singer, to talk life on the road, that London date and their relationship with their fans on this side of the pond. “Oh my gosh, it was incredible,” he said. “I mean, that room was beautiful and the fans were, if it’s possible, even better than the last time we were there. It’s definitely become one of our favourite places in the world to play. The fans are just amazing. “It was the only date, this soon, in the UK that we were able to make happen. It was one of those things where you get an offer and it makes sense, and of course we were hoping that we would get a chance to come back sooner rather than later. We ended up coming back sooner than we anticipated so that was definitely good news for us. A sold out show is definitely something we never take for granted.” – Read more at Stereoboard

  1. Pia and Jared Lee’s (7East) video for I Don’t Believe It was released on Vevo today.

  2. David Archuleta performed at a Rising Star Charity event. It was outside and very cold, but he managed to give his usual great performance. David is very invested in this charity. He worked with the lepers a few years ago in India (before his mission) and there is a walkway of bricks in his honor at a school where children of lepers live and study. This is a video of Somebody Out There and Stand By Me. He also sang Glorious, The Riddle, and a couple duets with Lexie Walker, a 12 yr. old singer.

  3. is there a “Cheesiest Without Trying to Be Cheesy” category in the VMA’s ?

  4. Lexi Walker is one of the featured vocalists for One Voice Children’s Choir, who appeared on the most recent season of America’s Got Talent. She posted a video of them rehearsing the duet (when the sun was still out and it wasn’t freezing cold yet lol):

  5. It looks like they are leading up to a romance between Paige (Kat) and Walter (Elyes).

  6. Georgia’s own “American Idol” winner from season 11 Phillip Phillips, fresh off singing the National Anthem last week during game two of the World Series, is rooting for the San Francisco Giants, who are ahead 3-2 over the Kansas City Royals.

    He has a personal reason: fellow Leesburg native Buster Posey, the Giants All-Star catcher.

    “He’s four or five years older than me. When I was entering high school, he was graduating. I remember watching him play in high shcool. He was an incredible player. He still is! I know his sister. We had classes together,” Phillips said in an interview Friday. “I’ve gotten to meet his family. I met Buster a year or two ago at a game. Really awesome nice guy.”

    Phillips himself played baseball until age 15 or so when he discovered the guitar – and never looked back. He said he played multiple positions but felt most comfortable at first base. He said he was more of a spray hitter, not a power guy.

    He talked to me to promote his first visit to the Atlanta Symphony Hall Nov. 6. (You can buy tickets here for prices ranging from $39.50 to $59.50.) He’s the second “American Idol” finalist to perform there as a solo artist. The last one: Adam Lambert in 2010.

  7. Rumor is that’s already taking place off-screen. So may as well do with with their on-screen characters.

  8. Of the new shows, I really like Madam Secretary. I felt neutral about Tea Leoni before, but she’s great in this show.

  9. I like it. Plus she’s much more convincing than I recall from other videos.

  10. I like it too, plus it pairs well with The Good Wife, which along Downton Abbey is my favourite show that is still on air.

  11. This is really good, I always thought that Pia (whom i do like), shouldn´t be one woman show.

  12. Fifth Harmony Sing the Praises of Their ‘Best Friend’: MTV blbrd.cm/ECQZBt

    MTV is also planning a “big live stunt” for the Dec. 16 release date of Reflection, Doyle says. “We’re still developing the creative and details around that, but we’re looking to do something really big, really loud and definitely live.”

  13. I thought this album was coming out the last week of November, not December 16?

    And why is MTV pimping this group so hard? I don’t get it, unless Simon Cowell paid them a ton of $$ or something. They don’t have an album out yet, their EP didn’t sell all that well, they have no radio presence and they don’t headline their live shows. They have a lot of very loyal fans on twitter who will vote, vote, and vote some more for them on fan-voted awards, but is that the reason for all this MTV related promo?. Please, someone explain to me why MTV has adopted 5H, because I’d really like to understand the reasoning behind this.

  14. I don’t think it’s just a rumor. I’ve seen photos of them together. What happens with the role when they have a big breakup in real life?

  15. lots of actors play romantic roles vs real-life exes, so if the writers want the characters to stay together, they’d stay together, even if Kat and her co-star broke up in real life.

    Look at TBBT, for example. Johnny Galecki & Kaley Cuoco were a real-life couple for 2 yrs. But they’ve been broken up a long time yet their characters on TBBT are engaged

  16. It’s not doing well in the demo, but great in total viewers. Per EW radio, the median age for Madame Secretary is 63.

  17. Hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed the one I went to last April.

  18. Very difficult to not sound good when you are a really good singer, like Josh.

  19. http://popdust.com/2014/10/18/grammy-awards-2015-submissions-list/

    Popdust has assembled a list of all of the Grammy submissions for the various categories from the bigger ones (SOY,AOY,ROY,BNA) to the smaller non-televised ones. Shocking submissions: Candice Glover for BNA and Cried for ROY,SOY, and Music Speaks for AOY. Love Candice, but really does her label think she has a chance in ANY of these categories?

    Among other noms, P2 was listed for Raging Fire ROY,SOY, and other smaller awards and BTL for AOY and Pop Album.

    Kelly was listed for her Xmas album.

    Colton was listed for his new album, more smartedly submitted only in CCM categories.

    Same with Fantasia for Lose to Win. Just for Urban categories.

    FH was also submitted quite a bit but take a look for yourselves! :)

  20. I have seen the previous lists of Grammy submissions. Most labels (especially big labels) submit basically everyone. Basically, before every Idol alum was submitted including alums who didn’t sell very well (Ex. Lee, Kris, Brooke White, Blake Lewis).

  21. So glad that Scorpion is doing great so far, show is amazing! I actually love all the new episodes more than the Pilot
