Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber stopped by The Ellen Degeneres Show to premiere the official trailer for Fuller House. It’s about friggin’ time. The revival is only a couple of weeks away, premiering on Netflix on February 26.

The clip gives the first look, or should I say listen to, at Carly Rae Jepsen’s take on the classic theme song, “Everywhere You Look.” Not surprisingly, the underrated Canadian pop star’s take is beyond cute with its peppy arrangement and finger snaps. I can’t wait to hear the entire thing without the show’s dialogue playing.

Speaking of which, I have to say the revival looks pretty good. It still echoes the original TGIF spirit but updated. Check out the trailer below. It begins at the 2:30 mark if you don’t want to watch the interview.

Were the sales for Emotion so awful that it’s come to Carly Rae Jepsen singing for loose change? Sure, her last LP didn’t exactly burn up the charts, but Jepsen’s stint as a street performer was for Funny or Die.

The 30-year-old singer headed to Santa Monica’s Third Street Promenade to give shoppers an unexpected surprise. At first, no one recognized her but once she started belting out “Call Me Maybe” and other hits, pedestrians caught on. Watch below to find out how much the Canadian earned as a busker.

Grease Live: Huge Ratings & My Five Favorite Numbers

In: Donovan, Music

Grease was definitely the word on Sunday night. FOX’s first live musical production hit all the right notes, scoring with critics and viewers alike.

Grease: Live danced away with 12.2 million viewers and an impressive 4.3 rating among adults 18-49, beating NBC’s last two live productions. The Wiz Live and Peter Pan Live scored 11.5 million and 9.2 million respectively. It did fall short, however, of The Sound of Music Live which delivered a whopping 18.3 million viewers. FOX, though, should be very proud. The network proved you could stage a live production without making it a hate-watching event.

Personally, I thoroughly enjoyed the three-hour extravaganza. There were so many moving parts (multiple sound stages, live audience and rainy weather) to the elaborate production. FOX really set the bar high for all following live musicals. This one will be hard to beat.

According to The Wrap, Vanessa Hudgen’s standout number, “There Are Worse Things I Could Do,” was the most re-watched scene during the live telecast. While Hudgen’s Rizzo cover ranked in my Top 5, it wasn’t my favorite. Find out which scene was below.

Considering everything on This Is Acting were tracks originally intended for other artists but ultimately rejected, they’ve all been fantastic. As they say ‘one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.’ In this case, the tossed garbage could become huge hits for Sia.

Two new tracks have surfaced online. The first titled “Reaper” was written for Rihanna for her long-delayed Anti album and features production and co-writing efforts from Kanye West. Unlike the other RiRi reject “Cheap Thrills,” this one isn’t tropical-tinged. It’s even better if you ask me.

Meanwhile “Making The Most of The Night” was co-written with Carly Rae Jepsen for her underrated Emotion LP. You can definitely tell Jepsen worked on this. It has her vibe all over it.

Sadly though, it looks like this won’t make the final cut for This Is Acting. When Sia released the official tracklist the other day, this wasn’t on it. Sadly, this demo might be all that we’re going to get. Check out both tracks below and weigh in afterward.

Grease: Live is just mere weeks away. Who’s excited? It’s either going to be really fantastic or a huge trainwreck. Either way, it won’t be boring.

While the majority of the cast has been locked down for months now, one small role had yet to be cast- Teen Angel. Remember when Frankie Avalon serenaded Frenchy with “Beauty School Dropout” during the dream scenario in the original musical? One of the most iconic moments for sure. Find out below, who’s been tapped to recreate that memorable moment.

Carly Rae Jepsen Records Fuller House Theme Song

February 26 can’t come soon enough. Not just to watch the Full House revival but to hear its new theme song.

Carly Rae Jepsen revealed she lent her voice to the project. “Butch Walker and I re-did the theme song for @FullerHouse together and I can’t wait for you to hear it! Check it out on Netflix Feb. 26th!!,” she tweeted.

For its entire eight-season run, the ABC sitcom used “Everywhere You Look” originally sung by Jesse Frederick. It’ll be interesting to hear how true Jepsen stays to the original sound and verses. After all these years, hopefully someone’s figured out “what happened to predictability, the milkman, the paperboy, and evening TV.” 😉

To refresh your memory, check out Frederick’s original full version below. Fuller House premieres on Netflix on February 26, 2016.

On the heels of FOX releasing the first promo images of its highly-anticipated production of Grease Live!, comes the first clip. This time, however, Aaron Tveit, Julianne Hough and Vanessa Hudgens aren’t the only ones featured. The entire main cast don their 50s-era outfits to serve up retro realness.

Carly Rae Jepsen (Frenchy), Keke Palmer (Marty), Carlos PenaVega (Kenickie) and the rest of the cast shake and shimmy in front of their Rydell High lockers to the iconic song, “Born To Hand Jive.” It’s a fun and slick promo that has me even more excited for the telecast. Will this new cast, though, do the beloved musical justice come January 2016? Fingers crossed. Check out the promo below.

Grease Live! Synopsis

Featuring a young ensemble cast, GREASE: LIVE will reintroduce and reimagine some of the show’s most memorable moments, great music and timeless love story to an entirely new generation. In this live television adaptation of the musical classic, the beginning of senior year means the end of Danny and Sandy’s summer romance – until Sandy unexpectedly transfers to Danny’s high school. Can Danny maintain his bad-boy image as the coolest member of the T-Birds, once he and Sandy start going together, and can Sandy remain a good girl after she joins the Pink Ladies? With their friends Rizzo and Kenickie pulling them in different directions, it’s up to Danny and Sandy to stay hopelessly devoted as they make their way from Rydell High to a new frontier.

Carly Rae Jepsen Covers Wham’s Last Christmas

In: Donovan, Music

Carly Rae Jepsen loves the 80s. That’s for sure!!! Her underrated album, Emotion, included plenty of tracks clearly inspired by the decade. What better way to cap off her latest era by covering one of the most beloved Christmas songs written during that time.

Last Christmas” was originally recorded by Wham! in 1984. Since then, the George Michael-penned track has been covered numerous times by the likes of Ariana Grande, Hilary Duff, Coldplay, Savage Garden and Carrie Underwood to name a few.

Jepsen’s rendition stays pretty true to the original version but gives it a modern update. It’s a bit tropical with fun saxophone elements. Give the track a listen below. Hopefully, a whimsical clip is on its way.
