This Old School Flashback Battle was inspired by a Facebook thread between a few friends of mine including Dave- a recent guest host on our Homorazzi show. What started as a conversation about Selena Gomez concert tickets (don’t get me started) quickly evolved to the age old debate… Britney Spears or Christina Aguilera? While I find both ladies talented in their own right *cough* Christina is better *cough*, it always fascinates me how passionate people are about either artist. Brit lip syncs, Christina is fat, Spears is crazy, Aguilera is a bitch, the list goes on. That may be all true, but one thing they have in common is both made splashy debuts with their first albums.

While Spears’ …Baby One More Time sold more albums than Aguilera’s self-titled album (14 million compared to 9 million domestically), X-Tina notched more chart toppers than Brit (three compared to one). Christina’s album ranked No. 23 on Billboards 2000s decade chart, ahead of Britney’s ranking of No. 81. To be fair, Spears released hers in the 90s and ranked No. 29 on the 1990-99 decade chart as well.

When it comes to critical acclaim, Christina holds a slight edge. Her powerful pipes helped upset Britney by surprising everyone at the Grammys by winning the Best New Artist Award. In the end, all that doesn’t matter. It’s all about the fans. Regardless of how you feel about each singer today, revisit the singles from each debut album and try to be impartial in determining which ex-Mouseketter had the better first effort.

Your American Idol Season 12 Winner Is…

In: Donovan, TV Shows

After months of enduring auditions, Hollywood Week, Vegas round and Lazaro Arbos, we finally are about to crown a winner. After doing this 11 times prior, you’re fully aware that we have to sit through two more hours before we actually know the results. With that being said, the results show was pretty entertaining. There were a couple of sensational duets along with a couple cute video packages. Check out all the performances and more importantly find out who the winner of American Idol Season 12 is below.

Who’d You Rather: Arrow Edition

In: Donovan, Totally GAY!, TV Shows

In honor of Arrow‘s first season concluding this week, I thought I’d pit two of the show’s male stars against each other in our latest Who’d You Rather poll. Given that Colton Haynes will most likely be Stephen Amell’s sidekick next season, it was only appropriate to pit this Batman and Robin-type relationship against each other.

First up is Stephen Amell. This Canadian actor just oozes man. The 32-year-old actor guest starred on numerous shows including Queer as Folk, The Vampire Diaries, 90210 and New Girl to name a few. My favorite was his role on Showtime’s Hung where he played a male prostitute. Lots of gratuitous shirtless scenes. But by far, his biggest role to date is playing Oliver Green on Arrow. The pilot gave the network its highest ratings in years. Those titillating promo posters certainly did the trick. Amell is a recent newlywed, marrying former ANTM alum Cassandra Whitehead.

Next up is 24-year-old Colton Haynes. Haynes started out his career by modeling for Abercrombie & Fitch, Ralph Lauren and JC Penney. Prior to landing his role as Roy Harper on The CW show, Colton played a werewolf twice on ABC’s The Gates and MTV’s Teen Wolf. He’s also appeared in a couple of episodes of The Hills, music videos for Leona Lewis and My Chemical Romance. Check out photos of Colton and Stephen below and cast your vote on Who’d You Rather.

Pacific Rim’s Latest Trailer Is Beyond Epic

In: Donovan, Movies

If you dismissed Pacific Rim as a cheap Transformers knockoff, shame on you. The Guillermo del Toro epic sci-fi flick looks so freaking awesome, I can’t even contain my excitement. Up until now, we’ve seen how visually stunning the film is in previous footage, but with the latest trailer we have a better understanding of the plot.

Earth has been attacked by creatures called Kaiju that have risen from a crevice in the Pacific Ocean. To combat this new threat, a program called Jaegers was born. It involves two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge to control a massive robot. Charlie Hunnam and Rinko Kikuchi are two of the pilots with the fate of the world in their hands. Story seems far fetched but after watching the brand new trailer, you totally buy into it. Check it out below.

Angie Miller Reveals You Set Me Free Artwork

In: Donovan, Music, TV Shows

The second Angie Miller performed her original song during Hollywood Week, she became an instant frontrunner. Even though she never matched the magnetism and magic of that performance throughout her American Idol run, I still maintain she deserved a spot in the Final 2 over Kree Harrison. Miller has more potential of becoming a crossover artist, matching the likes of Carrie Underwood and Kelly Clarkson, more than Harrison or Glover for that matter.

Miller was supposed to perform “You Set Me Free” on the finale tonight, but was nixed. Instead, she’ll be performing a duet with Adam Lambert. Even though the 19-year-old won’t get to perform it live tonight, she’s releasing the single immediately after the finale on iTunes, ergo the newly-released artwork. It’ll be interesting to see if she outsells either of the Final 2′s coronation songs. If you missed Angie’s breakout Hollywood performance, check it out below.

Last and certainly not least, The CW was the last to present at the upfronts out of the major broadcast networks. Given it’s limited real estate, the network is only picking up five new dramas with two being saved til midseason.

With regards to existing shows, the biggest surprise is the return of America’s Next Top Model to the regular schedule. The Tyra Banks show was removed from the Spring lineup and pushed to Summer, making fans worried it was the last cycle. It’ll be paired up with The Carrie Diaries on Fridays now. What does this mean for Nikita? The Maggie Q show returns for a final season with only six episodes. The CW didn’t reveal when it would conclude its run.

Out of the new shows, The Tomorrow People and Reign look promising. The former stars Arrow‘s Stephen Amell’s cousin Robbie. The network was wise to snag up the other Amell hottie. Reign is a historical drama revolving around the young Mary, Queen of Scots. Check out all the trailers and the new schedule below.

Whether in black and white, technicolor or sepia tones, Henry Cavill looks mighty fine. Life’s just not fair ;) The Man of Steel actor trades in his cape for threads by Tom Ford, A/X Armani and Burberry to name a few to earn the new moniker Man of Style. Snapped by fashion photographer Mariano Vivanco, the 30-year-old Brit is the epitome of laid-back cool in his fashion editorial for InStyle Magazine’s June 2013 issue. Check out the spread below.

Olly Murs Debuts Dear Darlin’ Music Video

In: Donovan, Music

Is it me or is losing the UK version of The X Factor better than winning the whole enchilada? With exception to Leona Lewis, I can’t think of any other winner. On the other hand, I can list off a bunch of also-rans popular on both sides of the pond such as One Direction, Cher Lloyd and Little Mix.

Included in that bunch is Olly Murs who was the runner-up in 2009. I’ve been a fan of the 29-year-old since “Heart Skips a Beat.” He continued to earn my love with his collaboration with Flo Rida, “Troublemaker,” which gave him his first US Top 40. Hoping to keep the streak alive, the Brit just debuted the music video for “Dear Darlin“- his third single lifted from Right Place Right Time. The midtempo track sees him transition from pop playboy to soulful balladeer by showing off a more vulnerable and sensitive side. Watch his new visual below.

“Writing with Ed [Drewett] and him being my friend helped, as we sat there for hours before writing, going over old relationships and recalling their scenarios. It’s about writing to someone to tell them how I feel about losing someone. It’s not the kind of song you’d expect me and Ed to write, as we’re bubbly characters, but we were able to open up to each other.” – Olly Murs
