I have to preface this article by saying that this mash-up is UNREAL. At the end of every year, we expect to hear a mash-up courtesy of DJ Earworm throwing together all of the top songs we listened to throughout the past 12 months. However, a new mash-up surfaced on social media yesterday that beat Earworm to the punch and I have to say, it’s definitely being added to my playlist ASAP.

Compiled by Mashup-Germany with a video edited by Panos T, the track is four minutes of pure musical ecstasy. There are literally too many moments for me to pinpoint which are my favorite. Britney’s Till The World Ends is pretty prevalent throughout the entire song along with Adele’s Rolling In The Deep but you still have room to fit in every other song you were addicted to from January to December.

If you’ve never heard of Mashup-Germany, you should check out some of their other amazing mixes like their Top Of The Pops 2010 and my personal favorite Hey Jude, I’ll Be There. Oh ya, their Rolling In Sweet Dreams which is an Adele and Eurythmics collision is also pretty sick. Check out their current year end offering below.

That list also includes the likes of Lady Gaga, Madonna, Jennifer Lopez and any other pop star. According to the latest rumor mill, those ladies won’t be filling up their dance cards anytime soon. For the 54th annual Grammy Awards, the academy is reportedly switching things up and blocking top pop stars from entering the Dance category. For the past several years, female pop stars have dominated the category with the likes of Rihanna and Lady Gaga winning Best Dance Recording Grammys in 2011 and 2010 respectively for “Only Girl (In The World)” and “Poker Face” respectively.

Though no official announcement has been made, several Academy members have confirmed the new policy when a supposed leaked list of nominees surfaced. On that rumored list, none of today’s pop stars were included. The reason behind the Academy’s policy change is to make way for true electronica and dance artists. This way, musical acts like Benny Benassi, Calvin Harris, Afrojack, Skrillex and similar musicians have a better chance of being honored and walking away with a golden Gramophone.

In the music industry, women are pitted against each other all the time in a game of “she said / she said”. This is partially to do with their ego and partially to do with the tabloids making matters worse. Either way, people seem to love the drama and controversy of it all. I came across a video uploaded a couple days ago by Rich Juzwiak (the arts writer at The Daily and blogger at fourfour.typepad.com) has put together clips from interviews where one diva has talked trash about another. It’s absolutely amazing. The one rule for the video is that the person speaking in each clip must have been talked about in the preceding clip. It’s interesting to see how they all come together.

One major source of drama was definitely Mariah Carey. Whether it’s the former rivalry between her and Whitney Houston, Madonna, Christina Aguilera, or even Jennifer Lopez, Mimi seemed to be at the center of it all. Another rivalry I forgot about was between Janet Jackson and Madonna. In one of the clips, Janet is asked how her music compares to Madonna’s, and she responds: “It’s dance music, I’ll say that… which is very similar. I think… How do I put this? I think what I do has class to it. I’ll say that.”

The montage even features more current rivalries such as a more media driven, Lady Gaga vs. Christina Aguilera. Enjoy the video below and stay on Mariah’s good side!

Last night on the AMAs, Black Eyed Peas front man will.i.am debuted his new solo single with the help of Jennifer Lopez and mistimed digital version of Mick Jagger. The song is officially titled T.H.E. which stands for The Hardest Ever. The track is the lead-off for Will’s new solo album titled #willpower. He knows album titles can’t trend on their own right?

Snippets of the song had leaked online previously but were poor quality and didn’t really give us an idea of what the song would sound like… or so I thought. The song frequently refers to “being hard” with lyrics referring to morning wood and boners. I wasn’t a fan of the song from the beginning and I’m not sure I am fan still now that I’ve heard the full version. The song feels a little disjointed to me without any flow or connection between the versus or chorus. I do love J Lo’s hook though.

The single is now available on iTunes although, I’m not sure it’ll be hitting my playlists anytime soon. I think I need to give it a few more listens or hear it in the club to really experience it’s full sound. If you were too distracted by the glow-in-the-dark theatrics from last night’s performance of the track to hear the song, you can listen to the full version below.

Tonight, the American Music Awards took over ABC with an evening full of honors and performances that were bound to knock the socks off of all of us. The show kickstarted with David Guetta and Nicki Minaj. While Nicki missed her notes on the first line of her song, she quickly recovered and continued to rock the house. She moved into Superbass where she was joined by two men on stilts who shot cryo guns. Not my favorite performance of the night but definitely a good way to start the show.

Queen Latifah got everyone ready for the night by introducing the first award which was only a catalyst for the many performances the night would see. From Justin Bieber’s illuminating Christmas track to Chris Brown’s high tech and visually stunning number, my all time favorite performance of the night goes to Jennifer Lopez who worked it out with a little help from FIAT. However, whoever locked the car door is definitely fired. (You’ll see what I mean when you watch the performance below).

The awards didn’t go without their drama either especially when it comes to Artist of the Year. Donovan predicted that Katy Perry would take home the trophy even though Adele had a rocking album with 21. The winner may shock you. But, I won’t reveal any spoilers if you haven’t watched the show yet. So, check out all the winners and re-watch all the performances below.

Meet Jennifer Lopez’s New Boy Toy

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Donovan

They say history repeats itself and Jennifer Lopez is certainly doing her part to prove that saying is correct. The “American Idol” judge has reportedly been shacking up with one of her backup dancers. Can everyone say Cris Judd 2.0? Back in 2001, La Lopez married the dancer/choreographer only to split up a year later in 2002. Will her new flame be husband number four? Only time will tell.

Since her split with Marc Anthony, Jennifer’s love life has been the subject of many tabloids. Most recently, she’s been romantically linked to “The Hangover” star Bradley Cooper, but that seems to have cooled. Reportedly, Cooper was in heavy pursuit of Lopez, but she just wasn’t that into him. What is she smoking? Bradley is DAMN fine. But just like history, she’s trading in a Hollywood actor for a backup dancer. Bradley and Lopez’s new man are the Ben Affleck and Cris Judd of the new decade. Check out J. Lo’s new man below.

YES!!! One of my favorite game shows as a kid, Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego? is looking like it will once again have it’s shot at becoming a live-action movie. The first time this happened, Disney had purchased the rights and was playing around with the idea of Sandra Bullock donning the red trench coat and fedora to becoming the mischievous globetrotter. Unfortunately, the idea was thrown out and nothing ever came of it.

Jennifer Lopez to the rescue! Her production company Nuyorican Productions is reported to be in talks to bring the concept to life with J. Lo to produce and possibly star in the leading role. I for one am I all for it. I think Jennifer is perfect for the role. If it’s been a while for you, let me remind you all about Carmen Sandiego.

Based on the educational board game that first surfaced in 1985, Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego became a popular kids game show on PBS that ran from 1991-1995 and even spawned a few spin-offs which took Carmen into space. Sandiego is ACME’s greatest detectives until she becomes a thief. It then becomes her partners’ job to find out if Carmen is actually thief or is really a hero. The board game is currently in about 50% of elementary schools nationwide.

American Idol Debuts First Season 11 Promo

In: Donovan, TV Shows

With the live shows beginning this week on “The X Factor“, FOX thought it was the ideal time to start promoting their other reality singing competition show. You know that small show called “American Idol“. The network debuted the first teaser for “American Idol’s” upcoming 11th season during Game 4 of the World Series yesterday.

Back from their well-reviewed debut last season, Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler once again join Randy Jackson and Ryan Seacrest to find America’s best undiscovered talent. Featuring the tagline “the incredible journey begins“, the crew walk in some Hollywood backlot (Universal I’m guessing) attracting a mob of auditioners and fans.

Contrary to popular belief, “American Idol” didn’t crash and burn after Simon Cowell’s departure. Myself included. The chemistry of the revamped judging panel sizzled and the caliber of talent showed up in droves. The show had creatively comeback and experience a renaissance. Since then, however, two high-profile singing competitions have debuted.

While both “The Voice” and “The X Factor” aren’t nowhere near the Neilsen ratings Idol experiences, both have made their mark and won fans over. When Idol returns, it’ll be interesting to see if it maintains its dominance in the genre or if it’ll lose viewers. Check out the promo below and see if you’ll be coming back come January 2012 to “American Idol”.
