Clay Aiken’s three favorite Christmas songs – Besides his appearances on “American Idol” and “Celebrity Apprentice,” (on both of which he famously, and unjustly, came in second place), Clay Aiken has earned a reputation in recent years as a musical Mr. Christmas, thanks to the success of 2004 album “Merry Christmas With Love,” (the fastest-selling Christmas album documented by Nielsen SoundScan), and by performing old holiday standards on several different tours across the country. “I say sometimes to people that I was born about two decades too late for my musical style,” Aiken told me in a recent phone interview. “Christmas music is timeless…and my voice fits the older-sounding, crooner-type stuff.” – Read more at JSOnline

Katharine McPhee Hopes Smash Globes Nomination Will Bring In More Season 2 Viewers – “Smash” is revving up for its big Season 2 premiere on NBC on February 5, and Katharine McPhee is hoping the show’s Golden Globe nomination for best Television Series will prompt more people to tune in for its return. “It’s not only a great celebration for what we did last season, but another way to get everyone excited and people who maybe didn’t know about ‘Smash,’ to maybe tune in for a second season,” Katharine, who plays Karen Cartwright, told Access Hollywood on Thursday. “I think it’s all… perfect timing for us.” – Read more at Access Hollywood

‘Idol’ star Casey James makes Amarillo debut with Christmas show – Though he placed third on the ninth season of “American Idol,” country singer Casey James knows the show comes with its pluses and minuses. “You take the negative with the positive, or vice versa,” James said. “I would not have the opportunities I’ve got if it hadn’t been for the show, but at the same time … it’s one of the things that made me work so hard.” “I’ve spent so long in my life pursuing music and, it sounds funny, but sometimes there can be a little negative light on what you come out with as an artist from a TV show,” James said. “I just wanted to make a good album and it really took me that long … but looking back, I’m definitely not ever going to think, ‘I wish I had come out with it quicker.’” – Read more at

Britney Spears Top Earner: ‘X Factor’ Judge Is Highest Paid Female Musician Of 2012 – Britney Spears is the top-earning female artist of 2012 thanks to skyrocketing sales of her latest album, “Femme Fatale,” a spot on Fox’s “The X Factor” and hefty endorsements and Elizabeth Arden fragrances. Spears is ranked as the highest-paid performer on Forbes’ “Top-Earning Women in Music” list this year, even though she hasn’t released an album or toured live in the past 12 months. Spears earned $58 million from May 2011 to May 2012. That was shy of the $64 million she made in 2010, but it was still enough to beat out the No. 2 contender, Taylor Swift. – Read more at Huffington Post

Chris Colfer: By the Book – What was the last truly great book you read? I recently skimmed through “Bad Cat,” a picture book filled with adorable photos of cats in compromised and suggestive positions, and witty comments. I’m not ashamed to admit it was the best book I’ve read in a long time and I would recommend it to anyone. It kept my attention; I laughed out loud. I thought about a bunch of political, classical and current titles to say instead, in hopes to impress, but it would have been a lie. Unfortunately, unless I’m adapting or editing something I don’t get much time to read for pleasure, which also made the quick read of “Bad Cat” a great selection at the LAX bookstore I purchased it from. – Read more at New York Times
