For the first time in four years, Simon Cowell will sit on the judging panel of The X Factor UK. Both Cowell and ITV confirmed the news in a press release. With the last season garnering the lowest in years, all parties involved definitely want to reverse the downward ratings trend. Hopefully, Simon’s return can do exactly that.

“I’m absolutely thrilled to be returning to The X Factor UK. It’s been three years since I last judged the competition and I’m excited to find a global superstar again. The UK X Factor has set the benchmark in finding worldwide superstars over the years – including One Direction, Leona Lewis, Cher Lloyd, Olly Murs, JLS and Little Mix. Despite all the rumours, ITV and the producers have not decided on the rest of the judging panel quite yet. You’ll just have to wait and see….” – Simon Cowell

Little Mix Moves For Wendy Williams

It’s no secret we love Little Mix and beyond excited to catch them open for Demi Lovato on Sunday. We can hardly contain ourselves. After watching their performance on The Wendy Williams Show, consider our excitement in overdrive. The quartet slayed with their performance of “Move.”

Be sure to grab their sophomore LP, Salute, which was just released in North America earlier this week. Like their debut album, it’s projected to crack Billboard’s Top 10. I’m sure with a little more stops on the talk show circuit, they could’ve contended for the top slot. Check out their Wendy Williams’ appearance below.

The other day, Miguel’s contribution for Girls Volume 2: All Adventurous Women Do surfaced. Today, we have a previously unreleased gem from Lily Allen. The British pop-songstress obsesses over her man on “L8 CMMR.” Contributing to the HBO series was a no-brainer for Lily. Here’s what she told Rolling Stone about her involvement.

“I think the show is brilliant, so it was more or less a no brainer for me,” Lily Allen tells Rolling Stone. “Greg Kurstin, who produced and co-wrote this track with me, played a few of the new tracks for a friend of his who works on the show. Apparently [music supervisor Manish Raval] loved the songs, and later came back to Greg asking if he could include one of the tracks in an episode.”

If you’re a fan of Allen, you’ll love the new song. Based on the tracks released by Jenny Lewis, Miguel and Lily Allen, the second Girls soundtrack is shaping to be a fantastic compilation. Check out Lily’s latest below.

G.R.L. Show Us What They Got On New Track

Robin Antin’s new girl group, G.R.L. aka Pussycat Dolls 2.0, have a new single out. “Show Me What You Got” is their follow up to “Vacation.” Much like their debut single for the Smurfs 2 soundtrack, their new effort is girly synth pop. Personally, I was hoping for more of a sophisticated mature sound given this time around ,it wasn’t for a kids movie.

“Show Me What You Got” is produced by Dr. Luke, Max Martin and Cirkut. Lyrically speaking, it’s more demure and less slutty than their previous single. This time around the five girls demand their men give more of an effort before doing the deed.

Admittedly, at first listen I wasn’t feeling it all. However, on the second and subsequent listens, I couldn’t get their annoying hook “Ai-ai-ai, aaai” out of my head. Dare I say, I almost enjoyed it. Give it a listen below.

Everyone ages but to see it in a matter of seconds is truly fascinating.

Some enterprising fan took the time to showcase Madonna, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera age from the beginning of their careers til present day. Spears and Aguilera’s changes aren’t too drastic since it’s been only 16 years since they made their pop breakthroughs. However, with Madge’s case it spans a whopping three decades from virginal pop tart to golden girl.

Check out each pop queen’s aging process below. Weigh in afterward on who has the best genes or best plastic surgeon ;)

beyonce-best-top-10-hits

Beyonce just silenced her critics. While it’s undeniable that the 32-year-old singer’s self-titled opus is a bonafide smash, question remained if the album would spawn any hits. Her last album 4, with heavy promotion and radio play, failed to give a Top 10 single. On this week’s Billboard Hot 100, Bey makes her triumphant return to the prestigious chart. Even as a fan of Beyonce, I have to admit, I’m pleasantly surprised she scored a track hit off her album. Job well done.

Drunk In Love” catapults to No. 2 just behind Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse.” It’s her fourth hit with her husband Jay-Z. Overall, the track is Mrs. Carter’s 15th Top 10 single, placing her in a tie with Connie Francis and Olivia Newton-John. The latter recently announced a Las Vegas residency. The trio are in 7th place on the all-time chart among their female compatriots.

Female Artists With Most Billboard Top 10s

  • Madonna — 38
  • Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson — 27
  • Rihanna — 25
  • Whitney Houston — 23
  • Aretha Franklin — 17
  • Beyonce, Connie Francis and Olivia Newton-John — 15
  • Pink, Donna Summer, Taylor Swift — 14

To honor this momentous occasion, it was only fitting to take a trip down memory lane and reacquaint ourselves with Beyonce’s previous hits. Check out all her Top 10 tracks below and weigh in on which are your favorites.

Nick Jonas Joins Demi Lovato’s Neon Lights Tour

Demi Lovato kicks off her Neon Lights tour this Sunday, February 9 in Vancouver. If the show is a success, she’ll have her ex-boyfriend Joe’s brother to thank. Nick Jonas recently confirmed he’s the musical and creative director for Demi’s tour. Reportedly, he began working on the 21-year-old’s tour shortly after the Jonas Brothers canceled their reunion tour and comeback album.

What does being a creative director entail? In addition to overseeing video content, wardrobe, lighting and staging, he created the set list which includes material from Demi’s four studio albums. Nick should be very familiar with her discography. After all, many songs were co-written by Jonas.

“I’ve been in rehearsals with the band for the last two weeks,” Jonas shares. “The biggest challenge has been just trying to rethink some of the music and see how we could compliment it with lights and video. I sat down with the band and said to them, ‘You need to step into this like it’s a new gig. None of these arrangements are going to sound like the originals, so you need to have an open mind.’”
