Ariana Grande Does a Damn Good Christina Aguilera

Ariana Grande proved two things while performing impressions on Jimmy Fallon. First, the girl can sing. Second, Christina Aguilera is a ridiculous performer. For years I’ve said she sings as if she always has something to prove, moving away from the melody in favor of exhausting vocal acrobatics, to the deficit of the song. Yes, Aguilera is a talented singer, but she gets in her own way. Watch as Grande showed us all why pulling back might be a better option.

Caroline Pennell Sings ‘Anything Could Happen’ on The Voice — WATCH NOW

If you follow The Voice, then you know that Blake Shelton picks his contestants based on tone, not range. That philosophy has served him well, garnering three wins as a mentor on the show. So when Caroline Pennell sang ‘Anything Could Happen,’ I knew Blake would immediately turn around. Unfortunately, Caroline missed the memo on the most loyal judges and chose Cee Lo Green as her mentor, in what will likely result in post-show oblivion. Watch her strikingly good performance below.

Vintage Quote of the Day — Fred Durst Bashes Christina Aguilera

“MTV didn’t have a slot for her. Britney Spears was playing. They told Christina, ‘If you do a song with Fred Durst, we’ll let you play.’ So she calls me and goes, ‘Fred, MTV won’t let me play the Video Music Awards. Will you do a song with me? Will you rap in the middle of my song?’ I was like, ‘Hell no. I’ve got an idea though. How about you do your song and I’ll come up afterward and do my own thing, a little piece off my new record. I ain’t f***ing doing no skit with you. I’ll come up, size you up and get the hell out. I’ll do it as a favor for you because you’re so worried that Britney is going to perform and you’re not’ . . . . I did it as a serious f***ing favor because she is so competitive with Britney . . . . I didn’t get a thank-you call or anything. She cried the day of the awards. She didn’t even show up for the f***ing rehearsal. I’m sitting in the hotel room with my managers the day of the rehearsals and she ain’t coming. She’s fixing her hair. So I storm into her room, going, “What the F*** are you doing?” She goes, ‘Calm down.’ I go, ‘No, F*** you I ain’t f***ing doing this damn song.’ So she starts crying hysterically, freaking out. I go, ‘OK, I’ll f***ing do it.’ I did her a f***ing favor, and all I got was a bunch of sh** from my fans were like, ‘What the F*** did you do that for?’ Afterward she was on MTV going ‘The worst thing that happened to me in 2000 was Fred Durst called me so many times I had to stop answering my phone.’ That’s bullsh*t, man. F***ing bullsh*t.” Fred Durst tells Playboy Magazine about his experience performing with Christina Aguilera at the MTV Video Music Awards at the height of the Britney Spears/Chrstina aguilera rivalry.

Green Day’s Billy Joe Joins ‘The Voice’ as a Mentor With Christina Aguilera

I will try my hardest not to judge Green Day frontman Billy Joe for joining ‘The Voice.’ It’s a popular show, he’s a popular guy, and he has to stay popular — because he has an album coming out. That being said, my vitriolic hatred for Christina Aguilera and my talent show fatigue makes this revelation difficult. Watch their interview below, and by “their,” I mean hers, considering he barely got a word in.

The Voice: Christina Sends Home Moses Stone — Big Mistake

I had the pleasure of attending a live taping of The Voice tonight, and it’s now unequivocally clear that this show won’t survive without a major overhaul. Though it has an intriguing gimmick, there’s some glaring issues that need to be addressed. First, there’s absolutely no emotional connection with the contestants. Sure American Idol gets attacked for pulling on America’s heartstrings with cheesy video packages, but those packages serve an important purpose. They make you root for a contestant, and you become invested in that contestant’s success. With The Voice, I found myself struggling to remember the contestants for anything other than what they wore on a previous show. Second, the judges are choosing people based on who is most similar to their own style. For example, Christina Aguilera predictably chose Ashley De La Rosa, because Ashley’s performance is the most similar to the way Christina performs. She’s not an inside A&R person like Simon Cowell, and if she was, she’d know right away that Moses has more potential for a sustainable career in the industry. And lastly, whoever styles the contestants needs to make some serious changes. These kids don’t look like stars. And they should. Don’t believe my criticism? Then just look to the Season 1 winner, Javier Colon, who has yet to hit it big. If they can’t make their winner a star, then they lose all credibility.
