When Melinda Doolittle released her first album in 2009, the songs were selected by her record label. For her new EP, You’re the Reason, issued digitally today (Nov. 12), the season six alum sought to make it a much more personal project and was involved from inception to the final mix. “I wanted to record something I felt was me,” she tells The Hollywood Reporter.
She’s a recording star, an AmericanIdol alum and a Dancing With The Stars champion, but to hear KelliePickler tell her life story in song, she's still a small town girl and quite possibly the best friend a gal could want for.
‘WRAPPED’ ATTENTION: Kelly Clarkson is having the kind of chart week most artists can only dream about and it’s all thanks to her new seasonal release, Wrapped in Red. The set bows at No. 1 on Top Holiday Albums and 12 of the 14 tracks make their debut on the Holiday/Seasonal Digital Songs chart, including “Silent Night,” which opens in pole position, replacing Clarkson’s version of “White Chrstmas.” That Christmas classic spent the last two weeks in the penthouse.
Not even ten minutes into his Glee debut, Glambert nation took to the Twitterverse with high praise for Adam Lambert.

With the auditions finally over, American Idol is offering fans a first look at what's to come for Season 13 -- and it seems there is plenty of talent to cheer for.

TaylorHicks may have gotten his start on television performing in front of the judges table, but on tonight's Law&Order: SpecialVictimsUnit, the AmericanIdol season-five winner gets promoted to his own seat.

HOLIDAY WIN: There aren’t a lot of songwriters on this week’s charts who can claim a span of hits that stretches out over 102 years. In fact, there is only one. In 1911, some 39 years before there was a weekly Billboard pop singles chart, the most popular tune of the day in the autumn of that year was “Alexander’s Ragtime Band,” recorded by Arthur Collins and Byron Harlan. The composer was a newcomer whose first song had been recorded just four years earlier.
