Don't get us wrong -- we love Nelly Furtado. But her performance of her new single ‘Big Hoops’ during the Billboard Music Awards fell a bit short of our expectations. With such big hits as ‘I’m Like a Bird’ and ‘Maneater,’ we were excited to see what the songstress had in store for us tonight.
Summer had been an influential part of the music industry for the last 40 years and to have them cut to a commercial before Bedingfield could even finish the first chorus of the song just seemed downright rude.
It’s been a decade since Kelly Clarkson became the first winner of the hit TV show ‘American Idol’ and tonight onstage at the Billboard Music Awards, Clarkson proved that she’s still got the same talent and charisma that made us fall in love with her 10 years ago. Singing her new single ‘Dark Side,’ the singer wore a sexy red dress and looked confident and radiant as she delivered the first performance of the night.
For the third round, mentor Jimmy Iovine got to pick a song for the ‘American Idol’ contestants to sing. Lucky for Joshua Ledet, it really doesn’t matter what he sings. Iovine could have told the singer he was doing ‘Old MacDonald Had a Farm’ and Ledet would have somehow blown it out of the water.
‘American Idol’ contestant Joshua Ledet did sunshine state native Josh Groban proud with his powerful performance of the song 'You Raise Me Up' on tonight's (May 9) episode. Ledet showed a range of vocal variety, taking us from low to high and making it almost impossible to believe that last year he was sent home without even a ticket to Hollywood.
This week, ‘American Idol’ contestant Joshua Ledet sang ‘Ain't Too Proud To Beg’ by Motown sensations the Temptations. After this performance, we don’t think Ledet will have to beg, or even politely ask for America’s vote because he’s already got it. In rehearsal, Jimmy Iovine told the singer he was “a gift” and joked about when, not if, he would be making a record with Ledet.
