And Here's What Happened On Glee!!

Another week, another stellar episode!!

This week's episode of Glee focused on New Directions and The Trouble Tones coming together for one cause:

Help Santana.

After a campaign against Sue was set to air outing her top cheerleader as a lesbian, Santana was furious. Naya Rivera has done an incredible job this season, and this episode was no different. It seems she has finally come to terms with herself and accepted who she really is. One scene in particular that I may or may not have gotten teary eyed over, was her revaling her true sexuality to her grandmother. Santana was direct, yet sincere and loving in her explanation, only to be met with cold, harsh words. Her grandmother ordered her out, saying she never wanted to see her again. Bravo Ryan Murphy. Bravo.

Elsewhere in the episode, we got the results of the elections. Yup, BOTH of them. Burt ended up beating Sue for Congress (woohoo!!) and Brittany ended up winning student class president from Kurt. The latter didn't hav…

A Switch Could Happen!!

Oooooooh I could get behind this!!!

There are reports swirling that when thesecond season of X Factor rolls around next year, we may have a new judge on the well as a new face on the UK panel!!

Word is coming in that Simon Cowell (who is still producing the UK version) is prepared to make some changes to both his shows. He apparently is looking to move Nicole Scherzinger to the UK panel, and bring former Destiny's Child and now HOT solo artist Kelly Rowland over to the States!

I would LOVE this!

I must admit, that while I think Nicole has been doing a good job, and she's definitely picked some amazing talent for the Over 30s, I can't help but feel animosity towards her after my beloved Cheryl Col was given the axe. Now, I'm aware that its not Nicole's fault, but I still miss Cheryl.

Bringing in Ms. Rowland though?

Thats a decision I am loving!

Kelly has been breathing life into the UK version which is desperately needed after the departures of both C…

Dr. Conrad Murray Is Sentenced!

To the maximum of 4 years!!

Today, the man that was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson, was sentenced to 4 years in prison by a very unforgiving judge.

Judge Michael Pastor entered the courtoom this morning and layed into Murray due to the documentary he filmed, in which the doctor seemingly lays blame on Michael. It was a clear indication that the documenary weighed heavily on the judge's decision.

In addition to his sentence , Murray will have to pay restitution to Michael's estate, as well as his children. The prosection is asking for $100 million, but the judge seemed doubtful at the amount.

Now, here's the catch:

With a new California law in place, Murray will serve ZERO time in a federal prison, instead serving at the LA County Jail, as well as only serving half the sentence.

Murray was denied bail and was immediately taken back into custody following the hearing.

Let this FINALLY be the end.

May Michael rest in peace.....

HOT Video!!! Mediocre Song.

Sorry B.....

Can't win 'em all.

Beyonce has released yet another video off of her latest album "4", this time for the song "Dance For You.

Check it out below.

Now, a couple things:

1. She's hot. Thats not up for debate here. B is fierce and this video is another notch in her belt.

2. However hot the video is, the song sucks. I may be met with criticism from that line, but its my opinion. The entire album produced MAYBE 2 or 3 songs that I enjoy thoroughly. Unlike "Crazy in Love" and "B Day", this album is boring. Nothing grabs my attention. Sure some songs are enjoyable, but I want a standout album that I know she's capable of giving.

3. Did she take hair whipping lessons from my other fave B girl, Britney Spears? HA!

What did you think of the video? Hit or miss?

PS: STOP. WITH. THE . VIDEOS!!!!!! You don't have to make a video for every song off the album! It's not freakin' necessary!!!

Adele's Coming To A Store Near You!!!!


On November 29th, superstar Adele will release her brand new CD/DVD combo pack called "Adele - Live at the Royal Albert Hall".

This is going to be a must have Christmas gift (or just for all the diehard fans who can't wait for Christmas)!!

Check out "Set Fire to the Rain" which was recorded for the DVD and bask in the goodness that is Adele! This song also happens to be my absolute fave off the album!!

Misha Returns To The Bottom 2......

I don't get it!!!!

I just don't understand why people aren't voting for Misha!!!!

Last night, on X Factor UK, mentor Kelly Rowland faced an impossible task:

2 of her girls were in the bottom.

Janet Devlin and Misha B wound up in elimination and unfortunately for Kelly, she had to send one of her own packing....or did she?

Next week are the semi-finals!!!

Misha Goes 1 For 2!!

Love the first performance, didn't really care for the second!!

But this girl is ready to make an album!!!

Misha B is continuing her reign over at X Factor UK and this week she upped the ante. Misha performed 2 songs and the first was MILES above the second.

For her first song, Kelly Rowland picked the Cyndi Lauper classic "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" and Misha DESTROYS it (in a good way!) The added rap is what made me fall in love with this girl in the first place.

Check it out below!

Now it was time for her second performance.

Misha went with the Roberta Flack/Fugess song "Killing Me Softly" and while I liked it, I can't help but agree with Gary Barlow. Her pitch at the start was WAY off and she does rebound nicely, but I still don't think this was her best performance.

This girls already a star, win or lose!!

Time Capsule - I Don't Wanna Wait.....

For my life to be over!!!!!

If those words resonate with you, then you were a fan of the smash hit show "Dawsons Creek"!

After viewing "My Week with Marilyn" last night, it got me all nostalgic as to how far Michelle Williams has truly come. I can't talk about her career without discussing what gave her that boost.

Dawsons' Creek followed Dawson Leery as he struggled with his teen years as well as early adulthood. With the support of his family and friends he would go on to become a very successful TV producer. His friends included, the love of his life Joey Potter (Katie Holmes), his best friend Pacey Whitter (Joshua Jackson) his close friend Jen Linley (Williams) and newfound friend in later seasons Jack McPhee (Kerr Smith).

The show was mainly about the ups & downs between Dawson and Joey, which got a little tiring at first, but once they threw Pacey into the mix, we got a very entertaining triangle.

The show ran a successful 6 seasons and I will a…

My Week With Marilyn Review - Oscar Worthy!

I'm still on a high after last night's viewing of the new flick "My Week with Marilyn!!

Following her time in England while she filmed "The Prince & the Showgirl" with Laurence Olivier, we catch a glimpse of the Marilyn Monroe the world might not have known, and its all thanks to the incredible Michelle Williams.

Everything about this movie worked. The acting, the sets, the costumes, the script.....

Just everything!!

Many would expect me to use a line such as "Michelle becomes Marilyn", which isn't true.

It's not about her BECOMING Marilyn.....its about showing a different side to her. Her insecurities. Her lack of training. Her constant need of affection. Marilyn was only MARILYN because of the people around her that fed her what she needed to hear:

You're the most brilliant actress of our time.

For those of you that have seen Marilyn's movies, you know thats not really accurate. HA!

Marilyn didn't need to know the "craf…

Movie Night With Marilyn!!

Tonight, I will take in the new flick "My Week with Marilyn" starring Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe herself.

I have been very excited for this film ever since it was announced in pre-production. I will have a full review of the film tomorrow so make sure you check back to PopGoesTheArts to hear my honest opinions on what many are calling "the performance of the year"!!

Can't wait!!

Happy Birthday To A Legend!!

A musical legend that is!!

Today, rock legend Tina Turner celebrates her 72nd birthday (WHAT!?) and I can't believe the icon is that age, because she sure as hell doesn't look it!

I've always been a huge fan of Tina's and couldn't think of a better way to celebrate her than to look at some of my fave performances!

3. 1999 VH1 Divas Live

No other entrance would have been good enough!!

2. 2008 Grammy Awards featuring Beyonce (and a special someone)

Notice that special someone?

The blonde dancing with Beyonce at the start and throughout the none other than Glee's Heather Morris aka Brittany!!!

1. Oprah Winfrey Special featuring Cher

Ignore Ms. Winfrey at the end. She HAD to be in the spotlight. HA!

Two legends. One song. 'Nuff said.

Happy birthday Tina!!

Can't wait to see you perform again!!!

Gaga SLAYS In Her ABC Special!!

There is nothing about this woman I don't like!!

Last night, ABC aired "A Very Gaga Thanksgiving" which featured Mother Monster in what appeared to be a ballroom perfoming her biggest hits. Gaga looked absolutely gorgeous in her dress which I was very afraid of watching her dance in. But like the pro she is, anything will work!

Check out some performances below!

Born This Way

Edge of Glory

You & I

And now for the best performance of the night:

Marry The Night

2 things:

1. She looks INCREDIBLE.
2. I love how she reworks the song into a slower, melodic version in the beginning. Beautiful.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in the USA!!

Oops!! Scotty & Lauren's Bad Thanksgiving

Wasn't a very good time for the Idol winner and runner-up!

First up, we got winner Scotty McCreery performing during the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and making a MAJOR flub. It's pretty known knowledge that everything is pre-recorded for the parade, but that doesn't mean you won't get called out when you make a very OBVIOUS mistake!

Check out Scotty's "performance" below!


Next up, we get 2nd place winner Lauren Alaina performing the national anthem at an NFL game....but unfortunately for Lauren, she forgets the lyrics!!

Poor thing.

Now, will this hurt either of their careers?

I doubt it.

But they could always ask Ashlee Simpson how her career is going.


Your Daily Funny - Veto

I'm not sure how many "Friends" fans there are out there, but yours truly was a huge one back when this show aired!

Season 8 gave us something very different and that was seeing Ross & Rachel prepare for the birth of their first child after a random night of passion.

In this clip they had finally decided that they should start discussing baby names....with hilarious results!!

The Ruth comment KILLED me!!!

I miss this show so much!!

X Factor Results: 2 Sent Packing!!

And one of my predictions was right!!

This weeks X Factor featured a double elimination and right off the bat, anything was possible.

After Kelly Clarkson tore it up onstage performing her 2nd single "What Doesn't Kill You (Stronger)", host Steve Jones wasted no time getting to the results.

Remember, one act would be eliminated solely based on last nights votes. They wouldn't be included in the sing off later in the show between the second and third lowest contestants.

The 2 acts that were called up were Lakoda Rayne and Drew.

I wasn't worried.

Steve announced the final group was going home and that eliminates Paula's category for good!

Too bad Paula!

The remaining acts got to sweat it out a little while longer......but then it came time for the second elimination!

Steve announced Chris Rene, Rachel Crow, Josh Kracjik, and Melanie Amaro were safe.

This left us with Leroy Bell, Marcus Canty and Astro.

One was safe. The other 2 would sing for their lives.


Don't You Wish You Had A Proper Ending All My Children???

Yup, I'm sure they folks over at AMC are kicking themselves with this most recent revelation:

All My Children AND One Life To Live will NOT continue online!!

A rep for Prospect Park, who had at one point locked the shows in to continue, released an official statement:

After five months of negotiations with various guilds, hundreds of presentations to potential financial and technology partners, and a hope that we could pioneer a new network for the future, it is with great disappointment that we are suspending our aspirations to revive “One Life to Live” and “All My Children” via online distribution. It is now becoming clear that mounting issues make our ability to meet our deadlines to get OLTL on the air in a reasonable time period following its January 13, 2012 ABC finale impossible.
We believed the timing was right to launch an Online TV Network anchored by these two iconic soap operas, but we always knew it would be an uphill battle to create something historical, and unfo…

The ONLY Performance From Last Night's X Factor That Matters!!!

This man HAS to win the entire thing!

I've made up my mind and the champion of X Factor should 100% go to Josh Krajcik.

Last night the top 9 took to the stage to give thanks, as it was Thanksgiving weekend in the US. Each contestant would deliver a song and make it a tribute to someone they want to thank. When Josh took the stage to sing the Rolling Stones classic "Wild Horses" to close the show, America got the performance of the night in the closing minutes.

As a tribute to his daughter, Josh delivered incredible vocals and an amazing message. This was by far the best performance of the night!

Check it out below!

Ugh this man is brilliant!!!!

Check out my feelings on all the other performances below:

1. Rachel Crow - I wasn't familiar with the song her and Simon decided on but it didn't matter, I loved it. This girl is a firework on that stage and she gives off so much energy and passion. It wasn't her best vocally but it was definitely very good.

2. Chri…

And The Season 13 Dancing With The Stars Champions Are.....

It was one hell of a wild season!!

Between the passion from Chaz Bono, the attitude of Hope Solo, the progression of Rob Kardashian and the determination of JR Martinze, this season was one of my personal favorites of DWTS in a very long time!

The final 3 couples still had more dances left in them, in which they would get more scores from the judges which would then be combined with last nights and the viewers votes......determining who would walk away with the mirrorball trophy.

It was a very close race (in my opinion) because all 3 couples deserved to be in the finale.

But unfortunately someone had to place third at the top of the hour at 10:00pm, and that couple was....

Ricki & Derek!

I was legitimately surprised by this. I expected them to be one of the final 2 but it also made me happy that America had kept Rob and Cherly in the mix.

After revisiting some of the performances from the season, and also featuring some new ones (watching Carson Kressley "Vogue" was H…

Album Review - Rihanna Talks The Talk!!!

Forget "Loud"!

DEFINITELY forget "Rated R"!!

THIS is Rihanna's best album to date!!

This week saw the release of Rihanna'a 6th studio album titled "Talk That Talk" and she slays from the opening beat to the closing one. I honestly haven't a single thing negatively to say about this piece of work!

I'll break it down with each track off the album (I'd like to note, I'm going to omit lead single "We Found Love" because you all know how I feel: GREAT track!)

1. You Da One - 3/5

I honestly don't LOVE the second single off the album but its growing on me. Its very playful and Rihanna delivers a fun, unique flavor to it.

2. Where Have You Been - 5/5

Hands down, best track off the album! Keeping close to the style of the lead single "We Found Love", this track is EVERYTHING. Between the sped up lyrics, Rihanna's vocals on it, or the thumping house beat, the track is definitely the standout on the album for yours…

Could It Be?! Has Kevin Williamson Begun Writing Scream 5????

Oh please let this be true!!!!

During the pre-production of Scream 4, Kevin Williamson tweeted quite a bit of having to "write some scary scenes" and the tweets were numerous.

Well ever since the 6th of November, Kevin has once again taken to his Twitter to let his fans know something is coming......but just what exactly?

The tweets came like this:

Now, I should remind everyone that Kevin is also in the midst of starting a new show about a serial killer, so that could be what he's writing.....

But screw that!!

I'm hoping for a Scream 5 and damn it:

Thats what I want!!!

Take this with a grain of asalt everyone...but the next installment in my fave series could be on its way sooner than I thought!!

Dancing With The Stars: The Finals!!

It all came down to last night!!

The final 3 couples took to the dancefloor last night to show off their skills one last time in the hopes of becoming the mirrorball champions, and it was the dark horse of the competition that had everyone on their feet!

When the competition started, everyone pegged Ricki & Derek and JR & Karina for the finals, and they'd be right.....but they forgot to include reality star Rob and his partner Cheryl! Rob has made SUCH progress in the competition and he's by far the most improved.

During their first dances, which would be to something they hadn't yet danced to, Rob and Cheryl shook it up with all 9's as did Ricki & Derek. JR and Karina however stumbled a bit with their scores scattered. An 8 from Carrie Ann, 7 from Len, and a 9 from Bruno.

Next up, the freestyle!

This would give the couples the chance to mix together whatever they felt they were comfortable with and shock the crowd. Ricki & Derek hit their stride and on…

Happy Birthday Goldie Hawn!!

The Hollywood star celebrates her 66th birthday today and I thought of a great way to celebrate:

By showing you one of my fave clips from her in movies!!

First up: First Wives Club!!

This movie brings me nothing but joy!!!

2. Death Becomes Her

This movie is absolutely HILARIOUS and thanks to the stylings of Ms. Hawn and the incomparable Meryl Streep, it remains one of my faves!

Once again, happy birthday Goldie!

Hopefully we get some more great comedies like these from you!!

American Music Awards Recap!

What a boring show it was.

Last night, the stars came out and hit the stage in Los Angeles and I was honestly very let down. With the excpetion of maybe a handful of performances, the show really seemed lacklustre. I really do believe however that they were experiencing audio problems throughout the night because it seemed almost everyone was having a rough time.

Lets start with the highs, because there's not as many of them:

1. The opening with Nicki Minaj/David Guetta

This was explosive!! The rapper opened the show with an incredible number. Starting off with the Guetta smash hit "Turn Me On", Nicki OWNED the stage and the pyro was a nice touch. She then wrapped it up with her own #1 hit "Super Bass" to the delight of the crowd. Check it out below!

2. Mary J Blige KILLS!!

There is a reason I love this woman, and her performance last night is EXACTLY why!! Mary sounded incredible and looked flawless for her performance of "Mr. Wrong" from her upcomin…

Counting It Down: Top 10 TelevisionTheme Songs

I apologize in advance...these will be stuck in your head by the time you reach the end of this blog!


Let's face it: Most shows do not have that enjoyable sing along that they used to, and thats quite the shame. Remember the days when the show would start and you'd be singing along with it?

Very rare these days!

Check out my personal top 10 best TV theme songs!

10. Perfect Strangers

I used to LOVE this show! Starring Bronson Pinchot and Mark-Linn Baker, this was one theme song I could sing along with repeatedly!

PS: Betcha didn't know "Family Matters" was a spin off of "Perfect Strangers"!!!!!

9. Roseanne

Comedic actress Roseanne made her mark in television history with her self-titled show and again, huge fan. The song, which was extended near the end of the series' run was always a personal favorite and the laugh at the end? Classic.

8. Growing Pains

Oh Kirk Cameron!! Starring the aforementioned Cameron, Alan Thicke and Joanna Kerns , this…

Astro Better Be On His Best Behavior!!

Cuz if he's not, he'll be going home this week for sure!!

X Factor has announced that this week will feature the dreaded double elimination!

Just as their UK counterpart, this is something that the judges think will add a little spice to the competition. I must say its a pretty solid Top 9 so I have a feeling I'm going to be upset as to whomever gets the boot.

Let's break it down and see who has the potential to be booted....and who will be safe no matter what!

1. Leroy Bell - America seems to be liking the sexy 60 year old and while I do believe his performances have been lacklustre, I don't see America dropping the ball on him.

2. Chris Rene - This young rapper has ben up and down for me. I'm loving him one second, and second guessing myself the next. He definitely had his weakest performance last week, but the fans rallied for him. Is his time coming up? I believe it might be.

3. Melanie Amarro - She ain't going ANYWHERE.

4. Josh Kracjik - Ditto.

5. Dr…

Misha Changes It Up

Like the judges say:

People need to be voting for this girl!!!!

After finding herself in the bottom 2 for the past 2 weeks, Misha B. returned to the UK X Factor stage to belt out a Whitney Houston classic for Movie week.

Did she deliver? Check it out below.

In case you're still on the fence, let me help you.


This girl is a freakin' star, and if she winds up in the bottom 2 again tomorrow night, I don't know what else she can do. This was such a more subdued performance considering what she's given us in the past but it WORKED.

The look, the phrasing, HER VOICE!!

Everything just fit.

I hope, after this stellar performance, that people:

VOTE FOR MISHA B!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Uh Oh!! Sons Is About To Get (Even More) Serious!!!

Go Opie go!!!!!

You all probably have NO idea what that means, but allow me to explain!

This season, the FX drama "Sons of Anarchy" is riding high on what is by a mile their best season yet. It's hard to fathom that its almost over (only 3 episodes left) but I do feel like its building to one hell of a finish!


Last week, we saw the incredibly sad scene in which Opie discovered his fathers lifeless body (Emmy for Ryan Hurst please) and Wayne doing the unthinkable: telling Opie that Clay did it.

Now as you'll be able to tell by the promo below, Gemma isn't on board with this, but it looks like she'll have her hands full protecting Tara instead!

Check out the preview below!

Like I've said about this show before:


Creator of the show Kurt Sutter?

I love you.

Bring it on!!!

Marg Out! The Babysitter In!!

Weird title eh? HA!

Reports have just come in that original "CSI" star Marg Helgenberger will diminish her starring status to possible recurring to make room for a new female lead:

Elisabeth Shue!

Elisabeth is most known for her Oscar nominated role in "Leaving Las Vegas" alongside Nicolas Cage, but die hard fans will remember her from the camp classic "The Adventures In Babysitting"!

I must admit, this is exciting! I've always loved Shue and while I will miss Marg, there's not much more the creators can do with her character.

Shue will debut February 15th.

Calling The Fashion Police!!!!! Time To Make An Arrest!!!!

Did she actually think this was fashionable before she left the house?!

Actress Rosanna Arquette made quite the splash when she arrived at the Museum of Contemporary Art wearing a Jean Paul Gaultier "creation" and I use that word loosely.

I don't even know how to comment on the outfit itself. Its a nightmare.

She's rocking some sort of Meg Ryan circa 1990's hair, and those shoes!?


Fail Rosanna.....epic fail.

Sick Of Survivor?? Too Bad If You Are!! It Ain't Going Anywhere!!!!


I still don't see how this show is garnering the amount of viewers it is.

CBS announced today that TV's longest running "reality" competition will continue running for at LEAST 2 more seasons.

Season 24 (24!?) will premiere in February with the 25th season scheduled for later in the year after the 24th one wraps.

This just boggles my mind.

I will admit that I am a sucker for reality TV as well (X Factor, Idol,) but I just don't see the appeal with this anymore.

Still, CBS knows what its doing.

The current 23rd season is currently averaging 12.3 million viewers. surprise it got renewed for 2 more seasons!!

Gaga KILLS With This Performance Of "Marry The Night"!!!!!

This woman never ceases to amaze me!

The pop superstar traveled to Manchester to perform in the "Children in Need" benefit and performed her most recent single "Marry The Night" and slayed it on that stage.

Check out her performance below!

Stellar performance!!

What did you think?

Demi & Ashton Split!!!

Well, after all of the infidelity rumors, I'm actually surprised it took this long!!

Demi Moore released an official statement yesterday, declaring to the world what many have speculated for months:

She's ending her 6 year marriage to "Two & A Half Men" star Ashton Kutcher.

The statement read:

"It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I have decided to end my six-year marriage to Ashton. As a woman, a mother and a wife there are certain values and vows that I hold sacred, and it is in this spirit that I have chosen to move forward with my life. This is a trying time for me and my family, and so I would ask for the same compassion and privacy that you would give to anyone going through a similar situation."

Well, one doesn't need a therapist to figure out what she means by "certain values". My guess is that they tried to work through all of the lies and cheating, but Demi just couldn't forgive him.

I'm actually a little sad…

X Factor Results: Astro Lets Me Down

He might not have gone home....but let this be a lesson to him!

Last night, I called Josh and Astro the best of the night, but somehow the public seemed to have disagreed somewhat, and put the little rapper in the bottom 2 alongside the more deserving bottom 2'er Stacey Francis.

Astro would sing rap for his life, and when it came to the judges picking who they would save, it came down to Simon Cowell.

Simon instructed Astro to uncross his arms and look at him, he wasn't impressed with the attitude coming out of him and asked him what he had to say. Astro coldly responded, with tears in his eyes:

"I mean no disrespect, but why would I want to sing infront of people who don't want me here?"

My jaw literally hit the floor.

The arrogance that erupted out of this young man was disgusting and I wasn't impressed at all. Simon asked him, if this happened again, would we get the same reaction from him and Astro apologized. Simon reluctantly decided to eliminate Stac…

YES!!!! Ricky Gervais Set To Return To The Golden Globes!!

Hell yes!!!

If any one you caught the annual awards show last year, you'd remember that the host, the uber talented Ricky Gervais, skewered EVERYONE and left nothing untouched. So there was no surprise when the Hollywood Foreign Press announced they would never have him host again.

Oh what a difference a year can make!

Ricky is confirmed to reclaim the stage and once again, set Hollywood on fire!

I can't wait to see what he does (or says) and look forward to the targets on his radar!

Check out below to see some of Ricky's best bits from last years show!



Let's face it:

Hollywood has run out of ideas. They're either remaking older movies or making a movie off of some childhood toy/TV show.

And unfortunately, in the world of television, its not different.

After the remake of "Charlie's Angels" went SO well (insert sarcasm), NBC has ordered the go ahead for yet another classic TV show to get the remake treatment:

The Munsters

I'm just going to say right now, that no one, absolutely NO ONE, can replace the late but FANTASTIC Fred Gwynne. He played Herman Munster to perfection and I have zero interest in this revamped version of the show.

It's been announced that the half-hour program will be relaunched in an hour format and focus on how the Munsters came to be and will have less of a camp feel to it and more seriousness.

That ruins the show right there!!

It was all about the camp factor.

What do you think? Are you excited for a Munsters remake???

X Factor Top 10 - Josh & Astro Win The Night

Rock week didn't fit everyone's groove......

But for Josh and Astro?


Last night saw the Top 10 hit the stage for rock week and I have to admit, I wasn't overly impressed with a lot of the performances. I am going to put blame on the judges for the most part because some of the song choices seemed ridiculous and not suitable for the category this week.

The best 2 of the night were EASILY Josh Kracjik and rapper Astro though. I thought both guys commanded the stage and sounded incredible in the process.

1. Josh

Rocking out the the Foo Fighters "The Pretender", Josh scored his best performance yet! He was in control and sounded amazing. Loved it from start to finish!!


2. Astro

Now, you would have thought that rock week would have been a problem for the young'd be wrong! Mixing his flavor with a little bit of rock was simply perfect for the youngster and he really showed off his mad skills with the classic "I'll…
