What do you get when you mix pop duo Karmin with clothing from Coach and stylist Rachel Zoe? You get a music video for the classic Christmas song, “Sleigh Ride“. The “Brokenhearted” hitmakers are all dressed up for winter in fashionable threads from Coach’s 2012 winter collection.
The plaid fringe cape worn by Amy Heidemann in the clip is absolutely gorgeous. Don’t even get me started on Nick Noonan’s wardrobe. I want that tote, the duffel, the cardigan… I want it all. Mind you, anything looks good on that sexy Nick. Too bad he’s engaged (and straight) *wink* All the outfits were put together and accessorized by celebrity stylist extraordinaire Rachel Zoe.
Pure commercialism pimping aside (which I love) I actually like their rendition of the classic holiday tune, especially the rap interlude. It’s also nice to her Nick sing on a track besides being relegated to keyboard guy. They should really duet more often for future releases. As stylish as Karmin are, the video looks like a Target commercial. Probably not the vibe Coach was looking for. Watch it below and you’ll see what I mean.
Back in 1924, Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade was initially called Macy’s Christmas Parade and featured animals from New York’s Central Park Zoo. Now, over-sized helium balloons navigate through the streets of the Big Apple for television viewers to see. The tradition is as American as apple pie. What better way to celebrate it than have a foreigner headline the televised event.
One Direction maybe the biggest boy band in the world right now, but it’s another UK quintet that’s going to serenade New York crowds. The Wanted will bundle up in their stylish coats and scarves to perform SLASH lip sync on November 22. To be fair, do any of the acts actually sing during the parade? Must be a technical thing that organizers don’t want to chance. Find out who else will be joining the “Glad You Came” group on Thanksgiving day.
Okay ladies and gentleman, it’s time for the All Star season’s first painful and shocking double elimination. Last night was probably the best dancing that I have ever seen on the show in all the fifteen seasons I have been watching and the judges agreed. Because of this, its going to be hard to predict which couple is going home. After Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough re-perform their epic routine from last night, we get to our first results of the night. Tonight is going to be a doozy.

Karmin’s “Brokenhearted” has truly become one of my favorite guilty-pleasure tracks this summer. You can’t even imagine how many times my friends and I have uttered “cheerio“. Coming off their first Top 20 hit, the duo just released their music video for “Hello“, the third single and title track from their debut album. Just like them, it’s a cute and colorful affair. It’s the perfect visual for the Stargate-produced track.
Amy Heidermann is seen biking around Chinatown on her Beach Cruiser by day and struttin’ it out in sexy attire at the same location by night. Meanwhile, Nick Noonan, her real life boyfriend, is at home contemplating a new look. The cutie takes a pair of scissors and clippers and cuts off his adorable curly locks. Eventually the couple reunite when Noonan picks up Heidermann in his vintage ride. So does she approve of his new look? Watch the music video and find out.
Back in May, Patrick introduced us to a few straight boys who created a lip dub video to Carly Rey Jepsen’s smash #1 hit, “Call Me Maybe.” The video gained some serious viral hits with their homoerotic tendencies. However, they did get a lot of flack for not really knowing the words. Come on boys, even my grandma knows the words to that catchy hook. Now, they’re back with “Brokebackhearted.”
Singing along to “Brokenhearted” by Karmin, the boys are up to their typical homoerotic nature, taking off their shirts, dancing around and teasing the audience with just enough to keep us watching. Unlike their last video, the boys studied up on the lyrics and choreographed some more dance moves to up the anti. Overall, it’s a hilarious video and a great song for the summer. Check it out below.
I admit it. Karmin have made a fan out of me. To be honest, it wasn’t too hard. I was immediately drawn to their Cinderella story of YouTube sensations turned full-fledged pop stars and I love how grounded and down-to-earth this engaged duo have remained in light of their recent skyrocket to fame. Yesterday, this tag team debut their new album titled “Hello” and along with it came the release of a brand new music video for their third official single of the disc, “Told You So.”
I first fell in love with this track when the two performed it on SNL. The futuristic hip hop beat was produced by Jon Jon Traxx. With proper promotion from Epic Records in the right channels, it will definitely become a top ten hit. In the newly revealed clip, Amy Heidemann is a patient and what looks like a mental hospital under the care of fiancé, Nick Noonan. Nick reveals pictures to Amy which give her flashbacks to certain situations. I have to say, you won’t expect the twist at the end. I love that Karmin took a risk in their latest video and I think you will too. Check it out below.
This dynamic duo has come along way from doing covers in their house for their YouTube channel to signing with Epic Records and being managed by one of the biggest names in the business – L.A. Reid. Sky rocketing into fame what seems like overnight, the pair made up of Amy Heidemann and Nick Noonan have hit the ground running. They debuted their first original single, “Crash Your Party” last year and it was a good teaser for what these two are capable of.
In their first studio album titled, “Hello,” Amy and Nick definitely flex their musical muscles with the help of some of the hottest producers and song writers in the industry right now. The result is an amazing seven-track disc that is sure to be the perfect soundtrack to your summer. What I also love about the album is that it proves Nick and Amy aren’t just one-trick ponies. The genres on the album are so diverse, you’ll forget who you’re listening to. Lucky for us, they’ve released lyric videos for all the tracks on their album on their VEVO channel.
Amy has said that when you listen to the tracks in order, you’ll hear the duo’s full story. So, I’ve put all of their lyric videos in order for you to get a full bio on who Karmin is. I personally love the Beyoncé inspired “Too Many Fish” and the club banging “Hello.” But, I can’t help but get all dreamy for Nick’s vocals on the beautiful “Coming Up Strong.” Give them all a listen and tell me your favorites below.
Ever wonder what Katy Perry’s “California Gurls” and Ke$ha’s “Tik Tok” would sound like if their ingredients were put into a blender? If you answered “yes”, may I present you this fun little ditty. I’ve been a fan of Karmin for a while now and featured them in my Rising Artist Spotlight series. They first caught my attention when they were unsigned artists uploading awesome covers on YouTube. With their debut album dropping on April 24, the timing of the release of their “Brokenhearted” music video is perfect. The catchy song could be their breakout radio hit.
Prolific producer Benny Blanco produced the track. His previous credits include “Tik Tok”, “Dynamite” and “California Gurls”, ergo the familiar sound of Karmin’s single. Even though the title suggest it’s a sappy ballad, “Brokehearted” is surprisingly upbeat and a feel-good song. It has the potential of becoming a summer hit. In the newly-dropped clip, real-life engaged couple Amy Heidemann and Nick Noonan playfully flirt with each other. I’d flirt with Nick too. That boy is one cute sexy guy. YUM. Check out the party-themed music video directed by Marc Klasfeld below.
