Camila Cabello isn’t the only member of Fifth Harmony doing a little solo side work before the girl group drops its sophomore album. Normani Kordei is as well. The 19-year-old singer steals the spotlight with a killer solo performance.

Like Sevyn Street and other female singers before her, Normani covers Troy Lanez’s hit single “Say It” which samples Brownstones “If You Love Me.” Like them, she puts a little girl power twist on the lyrics.

Girlfriend totally shines with her solo offering. If, and when, 5H breaks out, it’ll be difficult predicting which of the ladies will shine brightest. I always thought Dinah Jane was the Beyonce of the group, but it appears Normani could give her a run for her money. Give “Say It” a listen below.

Everyone involved should really consider hitting the road together. They have a musical chemistry that’s undeniable.

In addition to promoting her new single “Cheap Thrills,” off her This Is Acting album on The Tonight Show, Sia performed a cover of “Iko Iko.” The 40-year-old Aussie didn’t do it alone either. Natalie Portman, Jimmy Fallon and The Roots joined her on the much-covered New Orleans song.

Check out the epic cover below which features a few of them playing classroom instruments.

madonna-david-bowie-tribute

Madonna is the latest celebrity to pay tribute to David Bowie. The 57-year-old entertainer performed Bowie’s classic “Rebel Rebel” during her Rebel Heart tour stop in Houston.

When news of Bowie’s death came out, Madge shared an emotional tribute to her idol. “Talented . Unique. Genius. Game Changer. The Man who Fell to Earth. Your Spirit Lives on Forever! #rebelheart,” she tweeted, adding “So lucky to have met you!!!! Hot Tramp I love you So! #rebelheart”

With all these Bowie homages hitting online, I wouldn’t be surprised if a tribute album wasn’t in the works in the near future. Would you check it out? I would. Watch Madonna’s fantastic cover below.

Ever since news of David Bowie’s tragic passing was announced, the outpouring of celebrity tributes have been numerous. The late singer’s legacy will certainly live on for years to come.

During a concert stop in Osaka Japan, Adam Lambert paid homage to one of his idols. If anyone can do the glam rock icon justice it’s Glambert himself. The American Idol alum covered Bowie’s 1983 hit “Let’s Dance,” and flawlessly at that while rocking a sparkly jacket.

Lambert should consider releasing an official recording of this. It’s so good. Check it out below.

Younger returns for its sophomore season on January 13 on TV Land. I quite enjoyed the first season of the Darren Star-produced series and looking forward to watching new episodes.

To promote its return, Hilary Duff covers the Fleetwood Mac classic, “Little Lies.” She goes full-on electro-pop for her rendition, even channeling some Britney Spears on “Hold It Against Me.” If you like the track, it’ll be available to purchase tomorrow as well.

“TV Land called me. And it’s like when the boss is calling you, and you’re like, ‘What did I do now?’” Duff shares. “They were like, ‘We want you to cover a song for the promos for the second season.’ And I’m like, ‘Oh my God. Yes, of course, I would love to.’”

Ever since Cyndi Lauper released “True Colors” back in 1986, multiple artists have covered the ballad. With it’s powerful lyrics, it’s became an anthem for the LGBT community. Kodak also fell in love and used it in one of their campaigns.

Marina And The Diamonds is the latest artist to record a rendition. The 30-year-old Welsh singer-songwriter stays pretty true to the original. Her melancholy vocals sound fantastic over the minimal piano arrangement.

Reportedly, she recorded the track for a planned reissue of her last LP, FROOT. It appears that’s not happening anymore. Thankfully, this cover has seen the light of day. It’s fantastic. Give it a listen below.

Celine Dion Covers Adele’s Hello In Las Vegas

Celine Dion recently returned to her Las Vegas residency after caring for her ailing husband for several months. I have to admit, I’ve enjoyed the Canadian chanteuse popping up everywhere recently. Absence does make the heart go fonder.

The 47-year-old singer rang in the New Year on stage in Caesars Palace with her adoring fans. With “Hello” being one of the biggest hits of 2015, it’s only fitting Dion paid homage to Adele.

Not surprisingly, Celine hit all the high notes with ease. What was surprising though, was the little twang, or should I say French twang, she added. It was a bit random, but oh well, it’s Celine. She’s kooky that way.

Check out Dion perform “Hello” below, where she ad-libbed some of the lyrics.

jessica-sutta-damn-i-wish-i-was-your-lover-video

J Sutta, formerly known as Jessica Sutta, debuted her slick cover of Sophie B. Hawkin’s “Damn! (I Wish I Was Your Lover)” a couple of weeks ago. Her contemporary update of the 90s smash hit has received nothing but praise ever since, even from Hawkins herself. “I love Jessica’s version of #Damn,” she tweeted.

“I used to listen to it and sing along as it captures the emotions of an impossible crush and desires the yearning and fantasy of being with someone who is unattainable,” she tells Yahoo Music about Hawkins’ original. “The song connects with those feelings perfectly.

The 33-year-old saucy singer just dropped the accompanying visual and it’s, not surprisingly, fantastic. Keeping in line with the original’s lesbian vibe, the music video features plenty of girl-on-girl action. The former Pussycat Doll gets frisky, stalking and kidnapping her girl crush. After all the drama and sexual tension, the two lock lips.

“Damn (I Wish I Was Your Lover)” is off Sutta’s album, Feline Resurrection. Check out the dramatic clip below.
