Looks like the glass slipper fit. Carly Rae Jepsen is making her Broadway debut as the titular princess in Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella. The revival earned nine nominations at this year’s Tony Awards. She’ll take over Laura Osnes who’s leaving the production. The 28-year-old singer begins her 12-week run on February 4, 2014.

“Broadway has been a dream of mine since I was a little girl and I look forward to working with this incredibly talented cast to tell this classic tale. These last few years have been a real fairy tale come to life for me, so I feel especially blessed to play this part and be reminded that you must never stop dreaming!” – Carly Rae Jepsen

Before scoring the global smash “Call Me Maybe,” Jepsen attended the Canadian College of Performing Arts. Her theater credits include high school productions of Annie, Grease and The Wiz in British Columbia. Find out which classic sitcom is joining the cast as her wicked stepmother below.

With “Royals,” Lorde became the youngest artist to top the Billboard Hot 100 since Tiffany. She’s accomplished another impressive feat. By spending a ninth week on top of the prestigious chart, the Kiwi singer joins an elite group of women. On a side note, the longest-running hit of 2013 is still Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” which spent 12 weeks on top. Find out Lorde’s achievement below.

Carly Rae Jepsen Covers Little Mermaid Track

In: Donovan, Music

Perhaps, this is why Carly Rae Jepsen became a redhead recently. Talk about method singing. Clearly it worked, because she sounds great covering “Part of Your World” from The Little Mermaid.

The 27-year-old Canadian singer recorded a version of the classic Disney tune for the Diamond Blu-ray and DVD release of the classic animated flick. Her signature cutesy vocals work perfectly for this. I can see Disney tapping her for future musicals. Check out her cover below.

She’s been behind some of the biggest hits in recent memory. In only makes sense that Bonnie McKee forge a recording career of her own. The 29-year-old singer-songwriter debuted the music video for “American Girl” and enlisted a few of her famous friends to lip sync for their lives.

Naturally, Katy Perry appears in the clip prominently considering McKee co-penned four of her No. 1 hits- “Teenage Dream,” “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.),” “California Gurls,” and “Part of Me.” Also making a cameo are other artists she’s written for including Adam Lambert (“Chokehold”), Taio Cruz (“Dynamite”), Ke$ha (“C’Mon”) and Carly Rae Jepsen (“Turn Me Up”).

Too bad Britney Spears (“Hold It Against Me”), Kelly Clarkson (“Hello”), Christina Aguilera (“Let There Be Love”) and Rita Ora (“How We Do (Party)” didn’t show up in the video. Oh well, there isn’t a shortage of familiar names “singing” her lyrics. Joan Rivers and her Fashion Police crew, Kathy Griffin, Lance Bass, George Takei, Nicole Scherzinger, Jewel and her hubby Ty Murray, Macklemore and plenty other randoms make an appearance. Check out the clip below.

American Idol 12: The Final 2 Perform

In: Donovan, TV Shows

And then there were two. After weeks of competition, we’re finally at the Dolby Theatre, formerly known as the Kodak, to crown the Season 12 winner. Kree Harrison and Candice Glover face off for one final time. One of them will be the first female American Idol winner since Season 6′s Jordin Sparks. In fact, it’s the first all-female finale since Season 3 when Fantasia beat Diana DeGarmo. Barrino got a reality show and DeGarmo got Ace Young ;) Who’s the real winner?

Each lady sang three songs apiece- Simon Fuller’s pick, their potential coronation song and their favorite performance. Even though Kree won the coin toss, she elected to go first. Silly girl. It’s all about the last spot. Minus the unnecessary Carly Rae Jepsen performance (couldn’t they wait til the results show), it was a solid night. Check out all the performances below and be sure to weigh in on who should win.

Scooter Braun must have Nicki Minaj on his speed dial. As Justin Bieber’s manager, he enlisted Queen Barb on “Beauty and The Beat.” He now has the 30-year-old rapper assisting another Canadian pop star. This time around, Carly Rae Jepsen is the beneficiary of Minaj’s lyrical prowess.

Tonight I’m Getting Over You” hasn’t exactly blazed up the charts. Scooter seems to think the one-two combo of Carly Rae and Nicki on the track will dominate the airwaves. “Whenever girls do songs about getting over men, they seem to do really well,” he said. Someone’s been reading the Taylor Swift guide to pop dominance.

I’m probably in the minority here, but I enjoy Nicki and her rhymes. With that being said, I feel her addition to Carly’s track is unnecessary and doesn’t really give it new life. Don’t take my word for it. Take a listen below.

Matthew Koma Debuts ‘One Night’ Music Video

In: Donovan, Music

Who is Matthew Koma? Besides being Carly Rae Jepsen’s boyfriend, he’s a singer-songwriter in his own write. In fact, he produced three songs on Jepsen’s Kiss album. He’s now ready to step into the spotlight. The Interscope recording artist released the first single from his forthcoming debut album, Arcadia.

One Night” is a sugary playful tale about a one night stand gone sour. DRAMA! It’s the type of electronic pop that just screams summer jam. At certain times, he sorta reminds me of Mika. Cameron Duddy directed the clip filmed at a small town fair. Duddy is a favorite of Bruno Mars. He directed “The Lazy Song,”"Locked Out of Heaven,” and “When I Was Your Man” for the singer.

“Growing up in the ‘90s, videos didn’t always have to be a high art sort of thing,” Koma says. “Sometimes, they were fun. And I always found myself more attracted to artists who had an element of not taking everything they did too seriously. I’m not one of the most serious people on planet Earth. The video was fun and felt good.” – Matthew Koma

Feel good indeed. In addition to playing on stage, Koma also appears in the clip in disguise. See if you can point him out. After watching the clip, you can clearly see why Carly Rae and him are dating. They definitely have very similar tastes when making music and videos. Watch it out below.

YES! I have already been beyond excited about going to Jeffrey Sanker’s White Party in Palm Springs at the end of the month. Now I’m even more excited!

On Sunday, White Party teased Facebook fans that today there would be two surprise announcements. Carly Rae Jepsen is the first of the two surprises and I can’t wait to see what the second one will be! Jepsen will be performing at the Sunday T-Dance which is such a blast! Last year, Melanie Omaro and Neon Hitch performed at that party. There’s no doubt the gays will be going crazy for Carly at this party. Such a great choice for the event. The other performers at the Sunday T-Dance included Carmen Electra, Icona Pop, and Willam, Detox, and Vicki Vox.

No Carly Rae Jepsen for the boy scouts, but DEFINITELY for the gays! Can’t wait! If you missed my post on all of the other acts this year, you can check it out here. Stay tuned for the second surprise act which will be announced later today!
