Jennifer Nettles’ and Kelly Clarkson‘s opening performance of the Eurythmic’s classic ‘Would I Lie to You’ during tonight’s episode of ‘Duets’ was a rather fitting pairing — considering the season finale was a battle of the blonds, with the two leading ladies’ teams accounting for the final three contestants. Despite Clarkson’s impressive showing with Jason Farol and Team Jennifer’s consistency with John Glosson through the entire season, clear frontrunner J Rome was named the best amateur in all of America, taking home a coveted recording contract with Hollywood Records.
J Rome’s time on ‘Duets’ came to a close tonight with his final duet with Jennifer Nettles, but the young hopeful remained optimistic and upbeat about tonight’s finale with a performance of DeBarge’s ‘Rhythm of the Night.’ “The finale is a celebration,” remarked the singer just before taking the stage. “I want to leave American with all I got.” Did his take on the 1985 dance classic leave the remaining judges and all of America wanting more?
Despite being dubbed too “syrupy” on occasion by his ‘Duets‘ mentoring peers, John Glosson remained true to his aesthetic for his duet with Jennifer Nettles, performing a piano-driven version of ‘For Good’ from the wildly-popular Broadway music ‘Wicked.’ Though last week’s voting determined tonight’s winner, did Glosson and Nettles’ take on the big ballad impress the remaining judges during the season finale?
Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley — collectively known as Florida Georgia Line — have inked a deal with Republic Nashville, the first major-label signing for the duo. The announcement comes just after the pair released their second digital EP, ‘It’z Just What We Do,’ a five-song collection that features the fan-favorite track, ‘Cruise,’ which has sold 100k downloads to date.
Country music legend Glen Campbell has pulled out of his Australian tour with fellow icon Kenny Rogers — and the speculation is that Campbell’s progressing battle with Alzheimer’s is to blame for the last-minute cancellations.
Country music artists have always been known for their charitable efforts, and now three of the genre’s elite are being recognized with nominations for 2012 VH1 Do Something! Awards. Taylor Swift, Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton will compete for their respective trophies, which are awarded to artists who blaze the trail for community service and involvement.
Kellie Pickler will be the first to admit that working on her latest album, ’100 Proof,’ was anything but roses. In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, the ‘Tough’ singer opens up about her recent split from her record label, Sony Nashville, and why she chose to walk away.
Despite the rumors, Garth Brooks is not dead — so fans frantic to get a refund for tickets to his Las Vegas show can breathe a sigh of relief! Though word spread the country superstar passed in a tragic jet ski accident in the Turks and Caicos Islands today (July 16), the reports are completely fabricated.
“That was back in my drinking days,” Tim McGraw says about past comments concerning a future in politics (quote via the Star Tribune). “Who knows? I feel like I’ve been very fortunate. If one of these days I’m in a position where I can give back and feel like I’m smart enough to help and not just doing it for the hell of doing it, then it would be something I’d consider. But certainly it would be after my kids are grown.”
“I don’t want America to think I wasn’t ready,” said ‘Duets‘ contestant J Rome just before taking the stage with Jennifer Nettles for the first perform of tonight’s live episode of the popular reality competition show. “I don’t want them to say the pressure was on and he didn’t deliver.”
