My Top 10 Favorite MTV VMA Performances

In: Matt, Music, Videos

Every year at the end of summer, MTV hosts the Video Music Awards, all an out spectacle celebrating the best music videos of the past year. Each year the VMAs turn out some of the most exciting and theatrical performances.

With this year’s awards show airing tonight, I decided to compile a list of my personal favorite VMA performances. Keep in mind I have a thing for female artists, drama, powerful voices, and train wrecks.

My top 10 list after the jump…

In the late 90s, Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears battled it out on the Billboard charts. This Fall, the two pop divas will face off against each other on television with competing reality singing shows. Before we get the Nielsen ratings for their Fall premieres, the blonds go head-to-head on newsstands everywhere. Earlier today, Patrick shared Britney Spears’ Elle October 2012 issue, and now I bring you Christina’s Lucky magazine cover.

The 31-year-old Voice judge dons denim shirts, jean vests and lace tops for her photo spread snapped by Robert Erdmann. Apparently it’s the 1980s all over again 😉 Inside the issue, X-Tina discusses her new album, achieving success at an early age and her body issues. Check out her photos below, along with a few quotes. Don’t forget to vote on which former Mickey Mouse Club alum has the better October 2012 cover in our poll.

On Fame At A Young Age

“When you’re young, it’s so easy to get bull-dozed. There were these two ladies who worked at the record label who always wanted to come to fittings and dress me up like a Barbie doll. It was disgusting.”

On Stripped’s Success

“I was 21 and fearless. It was a really great turning point for me to be the artist I’d always wanted to be.”

Christina Aguilera is about to return to your playlists with a new collaboration with hit-maker Max Martin called “Your Body“. The diva has been shooting the music video and working on her album cover shoot as well. I’ve included a couple pictures that she posted below.

The leaked demo of “Your Body” hit the web today and I think it’s definitely in the right direction for Christina. Although it’s a dance track, this demo version is a bit too slow for me so I’m hoping the real version will pick up the pace. I’m pretty sure that was the same thing that happened with Britney Spears “Hold It Against Me,” with the demo being slow and the real one being much more up beat. Regardless, the track sounds hot and I love the lyrics.

Listen to the demo version of “Your Body and let me know what you think!

The Voice Season 3: Some Mentors Revealed

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Even though, I think airing two seasons of “The Voice” back-to-back for the 2012-2013 television season is a horrible, NBC is doing it anyway. No wonder they’re perpetually in fourth place among the big networks. They seriously need me on staff. I’ll whip them back into “Must See Television” shape. Think of me as the Asian Andy Cohen 😉 Well enough of my daydreaming, let’s talk “The Voice”.

For Season 1, Sia, Monica, Reba McEntire and Adam Blackstone assisted the judges in mentoring the contestants. Last time around Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton needed double the star power. Each judge called upon two of their famous friends to advise the singers. Kelly Clarkson & Miranda Lambert (Shelton), Alanis Morissette & Robin Thicke (Levine), Ne-Yo & Babyface (Green), and Lionel Richie & Jewel (Aguilera) were all “trusted advisers”. Find out who’s on tap for Season 3 below.

It seems that Christina Aguilera can’t seem to get herself out of the clutches of those catty women over at “Fashion Police.” Xtina has had a feud with Kelly Osbourne for years, but now it looks like the feud has spilled over into the hands of another member of the panel. Last night on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, none other than Joan Rivers took a little stab at the blonde pop star and Voice judge.

After roasting Winona Ryder on her shoplifting past, Joan took a saunter over to the Xtina side of life and told a little story about a “recent experience.” She says, “I’m at Spago’s with [daughter] Melissa, and we’re eating dinner, and Fatso is across the way, and she comes lumbering over with that ‘no-neck’ look. And I go, ‘Here it comes.’ She comes over to my table and says, ‘You gonna finish that?’” Ouch! That’s quite a low blow, even for the legendary comic. Check out the video below.

Billboard: Summer Songs Of The 1990s

In: Donovan, Music

With the race officially on for summer song of this year, I thought it was the perfect time to revisit some former “summer song” title holders. The good folks over at Billboard.com have dug up the archives and tabulated the best summer songs of 1990s. Taking into account airplay and sales, they’ve listed the Top Ten songs of each year during the 90s decade.

What is about summer songs that bring forth a unique sense of nostalgia? Browsing through the Billboard list brought forth a flood of memories upon reading the songs of each year. I could literally recall the smell and visual the sights and experiences of that respective summer. If I could dig up my old mixtapes of yesteryear, 90% of these songs would’ve probably been on there.

Take a trip down memory lane and check out what teenagers were pumping out of boomboxes (does anyone still use that word) on the beach during the 90s. It’s interesting to see who’s still around and which artists have faded into music obscurity. Don’t forget to VOTE on which year in the 90s had the best summer songs.

After a Super Bowl premiere, months of twirling chairs and battle rounds, “The Voice” finally crowned its Season 2 winner. Between you and me, I was definitely surprised, if not shocked, by the results. But before we get to the actual results, I want to briefly discuss last night’s finale. Don’t worry, I’m not going to make you endure 110 minutes of filler like Carson Daly did last night. Instead, it’ll be two short paragraphs.

To say the results show was bloated, would be an understatement. That being said there were some moments, I actually enjoyed. You’d think all the high-wattage performances by Justin Bieber, Flo Rida, Lady Antebellum and Hall & Oates would’ve stolen the show. NOT. Instead, what I enjoyed the most were the group performances by the Final 4 contestants. Each finalist invited former contestants to perform on stage with. It was interesting to see which eliminated singers Jermaine Paul, Tony Lucca, Juliet Simms and Chris Mann chose. It didn’t necessarily always fall within team lines. Personally, I loved Jermaine Paul’s group song on “I Want You Back” with Pip, James Massone & Jamar Rogers.

After Monday night’s penultimate episode, I predicted that the title would be between Juliet Simms and Chris Mann, with Tony Lucca and Jermaine Paul finishing in third and fourth. Simms wasn’t her best on Monday night, due to a cold, but I thought her stellar performances on “Roxanne” and “It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World” from previous weeks would carry her to the win. At least, that’s what I was hoping for. See if I predicted correctly.

If you caught The Voice tonight, you have caught this little suggestion that Christina Aguilera had after watching contestant Tony Lucca’s performance. Tony decided to take on a rendition of Britney’s classic “Baby One More Time“.

If you remember from previous episodes, Christina Aguilera was quick to criticize Tony calling him one-dimensional and that he had an unfair advantage with his ties to the Mickey Mouse Club. He’s even had some online endorsement from former Mouseketeer Justin Timberlake. Tonight however, Aguilera changed her tune with some different comments.

She took it in stride and invited Timberlake to join herself and Tony on stage for a full fledged Mickey Mouse Club Reunion. She also liked Tony’s darker version of the pop tune and appreciated him making it his own. In response to Christina’s comments, Tony told The Hollywood Reporter that he and coach Adam Levine have something very special planned. I can’t wait to see what that could be. Check out Tony’s performance from tonight’s show below.
