Fox Announces Next Season Of 'American Idol' Will Be The Last


American Idol Kelly Clarkson Jordin Sparks Carrie Underwood

At one point it was the most popular reality in U.S. TV history, but ‘American Idol’ is coming to an end. Fox announced today that the upcoming fifteenth season would be the final one.

At the peak of its popularity, ‘American Idol’ was watched by more than 30 million viewers, and helped launch the careers of the likes of Kelly Clarkson, Jordin Sparks and Carrie Underwood. However, its ratings have waned over recent years, and Fox have decided to pull the plug.

Carrie Underwood - Greatest Hits: Decade #1 Album Review


Whilst her impact on the UK music market has been limited, Carrie Underwood is an indisputable star in her American homeland. The winner of 'American Idol' in 2005, she has gone on to release four albums and amassed sales figures of 64 million records. Amongst her haul of honours are six Grammys and 16 Billboard Music Awards, so it's safe to say she has avoided being a quickly forgotten talent show product.

Carrie Underwood - Greatest Hits: Decade #1 Album Review

Largely in chronological order, this collection features all of Underwood's singles with a few additional tracks for good measure. Certainly, it cannot be accused of being incomprehensive and is a solid introduction to the country-pop styling of the artist, a blend that has also had crossover success for Taylor Swift and Shania Twain amongst others. The majority of the output here is safe; some would say bland, radio-friendly efforts that showcase Underwood's undeniably impressive vocals.  Unfortunately, it is rare for a track to go by without an apparent need to stretch that voice to higher echelons of warbling - new track 'Something In The Water' is a case in point. As with any competent mainstream pop album, there are songs which are simply infectious, with 'Wasted' being one of the better efforts and 'See You Again' also fitting the bill. When Underwood displays grittier attitude as she does on 'Before He Cheats' the result is actually worthy of further pursuit - the elements of country, soul and rock combining successfully for a number reminiscent of Christina Aguilera at her best. Unfortunately, the opposite end of the spectrum is in evidence more regularly, with 'Last Name'  failing miserably to convince anyone that Underwood is really a bad girl, while 'Just A Dream' is nothing by dreary. There's no doubting her vocal ability talent, but the material representing the first decade of her career rarely excites, even if it has sold in impressive volumes.

Carrie Underwood's Song 'Two Black Cadillacs' To Be Made Into TV Show


Carrie Underwood

Carrie Underwood's hit track 'Two Black Cadillacs' tells a very ominous story of two women seeking revenge of the same man after finding out they are both romantically involved with him, so it isn't a surprise that such a compelling plot is being adapted into a television show.

From Idol To Icon: The Rise Of Jennifer Hudson


Jennifer Hudson Kelly Clarkson Carrie Underwood

American recording artist and actress Jennifer Hudson will release her third studio album on 22 September, entitled JHUD. With an Oscar, a Golden Globe, a BAFTA, a Screen Actors Guild Award and a Grammy to her name, it’s easy to imagine that Jennifer Hudson has been an unstoppable singing and acting icon for all of her career. But everyone has to start somewhere and it was as an idol, on the singing competition show, American Idol, that Hudson burst into the public’s consciousness.

Miranda Lamberts "Platinum" Strikes Gold With Reviewers


Miranda Lambert Carrie Underwood

Miranda Lambert naming her new album Platinum might turn out to be a self fulfilling prophesy. Not only is the record, which came out on Tuesday, already on top of the iTunes sales chart, the critics are in love as well. Lambert’s strength has always been in her clever lyrics, her fiery sound and, well, her sass. Fans will be happy to hear that, despite her being a married woman now, the sass is still strong with this one.

Miranda Lambert
The new record shows a maturity that really suits Lambert, say reviewers.

Says Jamieson Cox of TIME Magazine: “Platinum doesn’t reinvent the wheel in any sense, but it doubles down on the qualities that have helped Lambert become one of country’s most reliable stars: broad, plain-spoken feminism, rousing choruses that split the difference between archetypal country and contemporary pop-rock, and frank, funny, fully realized depictions of the protagonist at the heart of these songs.

NBC To Follow 'Sound Of Music' Success With Live Performance Of 'Peter Pan'


NBC Carrie Underwood Stephen Moyer

NBC will hope to emulate the success they had over the 2013 seasonal period when they aired a live performance of The Sound of Music starring Carrie Underwood and Stephen Meyer. The show was a huge success for the network, earning strong viewer figures and a considerable amount of positive press, paving the way for another similar spectacle for the coming Christmas period: Peter Pan.

NBC took little time to announce its intentions to air another live, theatrical performance this coming Christmas-time, following the convincing success of The Sound of Music last month. At its peak, that performance scored more than 18 million viewers and held on to a strong amount of viewers for much of the telecast. Looking to capture similar audience figures again, the network have opted for a familiar story which translates from the stage to screen well and has a long history of multiple reconstructions. Peter Pan then seems like the ideal choice to keep this festive formula running.

A number of shows might not make it to Christmas on NBC

NBC's Next Live Stage Production Will Be 'Peter Pan' After The Success Of 'Sound Of Music'


Carrie Underwood

The success of last December's live television stage production of 'The Sound of Music' has encouraged NBC to give it another crack. The next show will be the universally loved story of 'Peter Pan', the boy who can fly and never ages, and lives out his endless childhood in the fictional 'Neverland'.

Celine Dion Plans To Bounce Back From Album Disappointment With New Single And 'The Voice' Appearance


Celine Dion Carrie Underwood

Celine Dion came back with a bang with her powerful single 'Loved Me Back to Life' and album of the same name, but whilst the album and single drew considerable buzz when it was released in October, people seem to have forgotten about Dion without much hassle. In a bid to rejuvenate interest in her singing and her first English-language record for six year, the Canadian singer is planning a double whammy just before Christmas.

Having already heard the lead single form the album, Dion will give people another chance to hear what her album has to offer when she performs her collaborative effort with Ne-Yo, called 'Incredible,' on the season finale of The Voice. The pair will perform the mid-tempo album track on the Tuesday (17 December) finale, which airs on NBC 9 p.m. (ET/PT). As well as releasing the track as her third single from the album, Dion won't be done with the festive giving just there, as she also has another TV performance lined up after her appearance on The Voice.

The Reviews Are In: NBC's "The Sound Of Music" Isn't A Very Smooth Tune


Carrie Underwood

The Sound of Music Live with Carrie Underwood – it happened, now we have to deal with the fallout. Many musical theater buffs were apprehensive about this NBC adaptation of the classic, but was it really as terrible as expected? Underwood was cast as Maria von Trapp in what is arguably the most beloved musical of all times because of her musical talent and her stage presence – both qualities, which helped her through the show last night.

According to some reviewers, this version just couldn't capture the magic of the original.

In fact, ratings show that viewers loved NBC’s live adaptation. According to CNN, 18.4 million people tuned into the show last night and it earned a 4.6 average rating in the adult demographic, making it the highest rating NBC production since the cancellation of ER back in 2009.

NBC's live action television production of the 'The Sound Of Music' aired this Thursday (Dec 5th) and like every remake, the comparisons and critics were at full flow.

Carrie Underwood starred as 'Maria', the character Julie Andrews made iconic in the 1965 film, and although she feels proud of the production, the twitter world were very vocal in their criticisms.

"Plain and simple: Mean people need Jesus," the 30-year-old wrote via Twitter on Friday (Dec 6th). "They will be in my prayers tonight...1 Peter 2:1-25."

Carrie Underwood Stephen Moyer NBC

The live performance of The Sound of Music, aired on NBC earlier this week, was met with a mixed reception from audiences at home and critics alike, however the harshest piece of criticism may have been reserved until now. According to TMZ, one person was left particularly distraught after seeing Carrie Underwood's interpretation of Maria, with Kym Karath branding the performance as being "painful to watch."

Karath portrayed Gretl Von Trapp in the original 1965 movie version of the Rogers & Hammerstein musical and when she and former co-star Charmian Carr (who played Liesl Von Trapp) met up to watch the NBC live show this week, neither were expecting to be disappointed so thoroughly by the latest version of the production. Taking to Twitter, Karath said she was left "mystified and disappointed" by the remake, being particularly let down by Underwood's sub-par performance.

Underwood Carries 'The Sound Of Music,' But Show Ultimately Fails To Deliver

When NBC decided to produce a live-action version of The Sound of Music starring Carrie Underwood, they knew it would be a big risk. Live TV is always risky, and remaking a classic is even riskier.

Was NBC's 'The Sound Of Music' One Of America's Favourite Things Last Night?


Carrie Underwood Stephen Moyer Julie Andrews NBC

The hills were alive last night, as NBC broadcast the live stage version of Rodgers and Hammerstein's classic stage show The Sound of Music. Favouring the original stage production over the 1965 movie version, the three hour showcase was one of the biggest talking points in America and managed to draw in a considerable audience number throughout its broadcast, but was it actually any good?

The Sound of Music
The show received a mixed reception from viewers and critics alike

The live broadcast was the second highest trending topic on micro-blogging site Twitter, falling just behind the death of former South Africa president and anti-apartheid hero Nelson Mandella. On Twitter, audiences at home wrote of their approval or disapproval throughout the broadcast, with the overall view of the production being skewered down the middle as to whether it was any good. Some people loved it, and were particularly full of praise for Underwood, whilst others loathed the production, and were critical of the lead performance from the country star.
