While speaking to the press at today’s NBC Summer Press Day 2011 in Pasadena, CA, THE VOICE executive producer Mark Burnett spoke about what makes this singing competition show different than AMERICAN IDOL and other shows of its ilk. The coaches, which include Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine (of Maroon 5), are a start. “We have four superstar music performers that are at the top of their game and that was really important to me,” says Burnett. “We wanted people who are at the top of their game currently, worldwide.

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays Original Telecast: April 14, 2011 Well, I can hide my happiness over this elimination tonight on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL. From the start, I have never understood why Paul McDonald made it into the meat of the competition above some of the other talented people they had. I get it that he’s a cute guy or whatever, which appeals to the tweens voting but other than that … the guy is boring as watching mold grow on toast. Seriously, he’s as interesting […]Read On »


AMERICAN IDOL Shocker: Pia Toscano gone from the competition

Whenever Seacrest talks about a shocking results show, it usually happens on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL. Who would be shocking? Jacob Lusk or James Durbin going home, and, yes Pia Toscano going home was indeed shocking. She was by far the best chick in the competition. Not just in looks but in talent. It doesn’t make any sense except for this fact – the tweens dominate AMERICAN IDOL. Not a single dude has been kicked off the show. Not one! Yet, four chicks have been given the boot. The theory is TOTALLY being proved week after week. […]Read On »

During the “Behind the Music with CW3PR: Composing for Sci-Fi Horror and Fantasy” panel during Wondercon 2011 in San Francisco, composer Marco Beltrami was asked about returning to the horror franchise SCRE4M (aka SCREAM 4) and how it was different. “It was great working again with [director] Wes [Craven], he is a lot of fun,” Beltrami says. “It is really a  continuation of the previous SCREAM movies, but the fun thing about this one is since there was another killer, it gave me a chance to play around with the general theme.” Beltrami also says he played around with Sidney’s […]Read On »

And this was a shocker. Just when you think you have it figured out that the tweens are dominating the competition by putting chicks in the bottom three for the past two weeks, everything goes topsy-turvy and we have two dudes in the bottom, not to mention all three people that have not yet been in the bottom. Jacob Lusk, Pia Toscano, Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina are first and […]Read On »

It’s been 27 years since The Cars released their last studio album DOOR TO DOOR (we won’t count The New Cars side project from 2005 that didn’t feature lead singer Ric Ocasek), but now The Cars have regrouped (minus Benjamin Orr who died of Cancer in 2000) for a new album titled MOVE LIKE THIS. Lead-off single “Sad Song” feels like classic Cars all over again – crisp, clean and keyboard friendly. You can check out the new video below (as well as the song “Blue Tip” off the album) and party like it’s 1984 all over again. MOVE LIKE […]Read On »

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson, Steven Tyler Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays Original Telecast: March 10, 2011 OK, I’m bypassing all the hour-long crapfest we had to sit through in order to get through to the results because really there is nothing that no one gives a rat’s ass about other than who got kicked off. I mean really do you care that Adam Lambert or Diddy-Dirty Money sang or that they did a Ford commercial or we saw where they were living? I know I don’t, this whole hour-long elimination should be a half hour at […]Read On »

From what I’ve seen, from what I heard, it all seems to be going well. I thought that would […]Read On »


In Remembrance: The 10 Best Scores of Composer John Barry

John Barry - THE CONCERT

If the theme’s the thing in film scoring, then the passing of  composer John Barry Sunday at age 77  represents the true end of unabashed, symphonic lyricism. There were few composers who had his way with melody. Even the most explosive action of Barry’s Bond scores had a slow, hypnotically seductive rhythm. It was a lyricism that made generations fall in love, not only with their dates in the darkened theater, but with the lush possibility of film music itself. And that was just fine for Barry, who like so many of us, spent the better part of his youth […]Read On »
