sister-christina-like-a-virgin

Sister Christina became an Internet sensation with her rendition of Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Want To Have Fun” during the blind auditions on The Voice Italy. Week after week the singing nun wowed judges and viewers alike. It’s no wonder she ended up winning the second season of the singing competition. In a rather surprising move, Sister Cristina chose Madonna’s then controversial hit, “Like A Virgin” as her first single.

“I chose ‘Like a Virgin’ because I wanted it to bear witness to God’s power to move all things!” explained Cristina in a statement. “I see it as GOD’S TOUCH, when he called me to a new life, giving me back the purity and dignity of being his Daughter and being Loved by Him. And that’s the way it will be till the end of time!”

Sister Cristina’s debut album will feature two original compositions and ten cover tracks. In addition to Madonna’s classic track, she’ll take on “Fix You” by Coldplay and the Cyndi Lauper tune “True Colors” to name a couple.

Like Madonna, Sister Cristina headed to Venice to film the video. Unlike Madge though, she keeps her habit on and doesn’t writhe sexually on a gondola. Check it out below. I have to say, I like her rendition quite a lot. Be sure to sound off afterward.

Some longtime viewers of American Horror Story have taken issue with Ryan Murphy changing the show’s theme music for Freak Show. Turns out there’s a reason why.

Season 3 Voice standout Melanie Martinez released her debut EP earlier this year. One track featured on the well-received offering was “Carousel.” Being a fan of the show, Martinez reached out to the show’s producers about using her spooky gypsy-sounding track once she heard of the upcoming theme. A couple of days before the promo aired, the network finally reached out to her. Naturally, she was ecstatic “The whole thing was just crazy,” she told HuffPo.

Melanie just released the accompanying visual for “Carousel.” Naturally it’s set in a carnival environment filled with all things spooky. Directed by Adam Donald, Melanie chases a buff blond guy who ends up deceiving her. Though the clip and beat have an eerie feel, the lyrics are quite sad, comparing the search for true love to going round and round aimlessly on a carousel. Give the entertaining visual a watch below.

the-voice-season-8

The battle rounds for The Voice Season 7 have just started airing, but NBC has already assembled the coaching panel for Season 8. Typically, Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green would’ve reclaimed their red swivel chairs for Season 7 but due to Aguilera’s pregnancy and Green’s legal troubles, producers brought in newbies Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams to take over Shakira and Usher.

With so many coaches to pick from, would producers create a new combination or bring in new judges? More importantly, will permanent fixtures Adam Levine and Blake Shelton remain on the panel? Find out thew new lineup after the jump.

Arguably the most-hyped show coming into this new season has to be Gotham. FOX’s Batman prequel didn’t disappoint in terms of ratings. It notched 8 million viewers and a 3.2 rating among the coveted 18-49 demo. Definitely solid given it was against two back-to-back episodes of The Big Bang Theory. Only time will tell if the show can maintain or build upon its series premiere numbers.

Also debuting well was Scorpion over at CBS. It generated 14 million viewers and a 3.3 rating. No doubt aided greatly by it’s cushy lead-in- The Big Bang Theory double header. I don’t typically watch shows on the eye network, but this one has me intrigued. I can’t wait to check it out when I get back from my Hawaiian vacay.

Unfortunately for ABC, the winning streak for freshman shows ended with Forever. The show did alright with 8.3 million viewers but only managed to snag 1.5 rating in the 18-49 demo. That number represents a 32 percent decrease from Castle which occupied the post-Dancing With The Stars slot last season. Don’t expect a long life for this immortality drama.

The Voice doesn’t kick off its 7th season premiere until Monday, September 22 but NBC has uploaded a little preview. In what’s become a sort of ritual, the new female judge performs one of her biggest hits. Gwen Stefani in this particular case revisits her smash hit “Hella Good” with No Doubt, but with different accompaniment.

Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, and Pharrell Williams all take turns singing lyrics with Stefani. It’s not hella good, but it’s not hella bad either. Check it out below.

The last time Adam Levine collaborated with one of The Voice female judges, the infectious smash “Moves Like Jagger” was born. That Christina Aguilera duet topped the Billboard Hot 100.

With Gwen Stefani joining the NBC singing competition, naturally, Levine convinced the No Doubt frontwoman to contribute to his band, Maroon 5′s forthcoming album V, due out next week.

Their collabo doesn’t sound like his X-Tina one. In fact, “My Heart Is Open,” is more reminiscent of Aguilera’s duet with A Great Big World on “Say Something.” The Sia-penned ballad features swooping cinematic strings and a simple piano melody. Give it a listen below.

the-voice-7-western-promo

The Voice heads to the wild West for the latest promo. Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, Pharrell Williams and Gwen Stefani don western attire for a showdown at the O.K. Corral.

Who has the quickest draw? We’ll have to wait til the Season 7 premiere on September 22 when the judges battle it out during the blind auditions. My money is on Pharrell being the fastest button clicker. Check out the fun clip below.

the-voice-season--7

Season 7 of The Voice doesn’t air until September but that hasn’t stopped NBC from beginning its promotion. The network debuted the first promo featuring new judges Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams.

Based on the clip, it appears that Stefani is their prize pony. Not only does it feature “Hollaback,” but Gwen has by far the most camera time. Poor Pharrell. Despite being the hottest producer in town, he can’t compete with the glamorous Stefani. Check out the promo below.
