"American Idol" finalists Phillip Phillips and Jessica Sanchez competed in three close rounds for part one of the show's season finale.
16-year-old Jessica kicked off the night singing Whitney Houston's "I Have Nothing" in front of the 7,000 'Idol' fans that packed into the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles.
21-year-old Phillip followed with a rendition of "Stand By Me" that di NOT win over the judges. Both Randy Jackson and Jennifer Lopez guessed that Round 1 went to Jessica, although J.Lo admitted that the two performers are polar opposites in style, making it difficult to compare them to one another.
Round 2 ended in a tie, as far as the judges were concerned. Phillip sang Billy Joel's "Movin' Out", while Jessica performed Celine Dion's "The Prayer".
The judges were baffled by Jessica's song choice for the third and final round, which ultimately went to Phillip. Jessica chose the pop ballad "Change Nothing", which seemed inappropriate for her. Steven Tyler said: "I just didn't feel like that song was the proper song for you to sing with the voice and the places you've taken the world before this."
Phillip, on the other hand, earned a standing ovation from the judges for his version of "Home", which Randy called "the best performance of the night." The song could be his first single.
Special guest performers included Jason Derulo, who performed his new song "Undefeated", which was partially fan-written, as lyrical submissions were accepted as a part of a promotion with Idol and Coke.
Scotty McCreery, last season's winner, returned to the show to perform his version of Tim McGraw's 1999 hit single, "Please Remember Me". Scotty re-recorded the tune for 'Idol' season 11's "goodbye song".
Social media: It's not just for college kids anymore. Families use Facebook to stay in touch across generations.
The brand-engagement firm GMR Marketing recently polled about 1,000 moms and kids to see how social media has penetrated family life and affected mother and child relationships.
More families have three generations on social media than just one. But there is a certain awkwardness in having so many family members online.
While more than three-quarters of moms said they'd "definitely" accept a friend request from their child, just 43% of kids said they'd do the same. And twice as many kids and moms — 18% to 9% — said they'd have to hide some photos or other information before making things official on Facebook.
Teenagers are also much more shy about broadcasting their family connections via social media. Nearly twice as many moms as kids — 29% to 16% — said they use public messages on networks such as Facebook and Twitter to communicate with family members. Teens prefer to use private messages more than parents do, 39% to 31%.
NBC's ‘The Voice' will be the first to try two cycles a season this coming season.
(Fox's "American Idol" and "The X Factor" as well as NBC's "America's Got Talent" air once a year.)
Mentors, Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton, Cee Lo Green and Adam Levine are committed to do the fall edition, while their participation in the spring one will be based on their availability as all four are active musicians.
THE SPINNING CHAIRS:
The ratings for "The Voice" are higher during the blind auditions featuring the spinning chairs -- and then fall off in the battle rounds.
SO, NBC execs are extending the presence of the show's signature feature.They will "put the spinning chairs into the battle rounds this coming season."
NBC chairman Bob Greenblatt wouldn't elaborate on specifics but noted that the tweaks will make The Voice "even better and more competitive."
Drake's Club Paradise tour got shut down by police at their tour stop in Irvine, California.
Drizzy then went on Twitter and wrote: "Police made me cut the show short but I love you all for rocking with me Irvine."
Before the show, Drake went on Twitter and asked ticketholders to arrive early. The roster included J. Cole, 2 Chainz, French Montana, Waka Flocka Flame and Meek Mill, so Drake warned fans they wouldn't want to miss any of it. But the show ran too long, so police shut it down. Drake had to cut three songs from his set.
Nobody got arrested. Police simply said Drake broke the venue's curfew so they had to shut it down.
Round one on last night's "American Idol" was "California Dreamin'"—songs either about California or by artists from the Golden State—and round two comprised songs that inspired the contestants so much, they wish they had written them.
Phillip Phillips performed a low-key version of Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Have You Ever Seen the Rain?"
Hollie Cavanagh sang Journey's "Faithfully." Jennifer Lopez was on the verge of tears.
Joshua Ledet sang Josh Groban's "You Raise Me Up" other than sing it well—and, duh, that's obviously what did!
Jessica Sanchez performed Etta James' '"Steal Away," a vocal that Randy Jackson called "ridiculous."
The finalists then capped off round one with a couple of duets, first Joshua and Phillip doing L.A.-based Maroon 5's "This Love," a song choice Steven Tyler called "brilliant" and "perfect."
Jessica and Hollie followed up with the Bangles' eternally "Eternal Flame." It was "a little strange" for Randy.
Next up, the judges raved about Phillip's cover of Damien Rice's "Volcanoes".
Hollie sang Bonnie Raitt's "I Can't Make You Love Me", but J.Lo told her, "A little too much vibrato, too much shaking". Randy thought the overall song choice was wrong.
Joshua took on James Brown's "It's a Man's Man's Man's World." The judges loved it.
Jessica closed the show with the big-voice favorite "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going."
JUSTIN BIEBER TALKED ABOUT HIS NEXT SINGLE, COLLABORATING WITH KANYE WEST
Justin Bieber dropped a hint as to what his next single might be.
He said: "My next single… I think it's 'As Long As You Love Me,' but I'm not sure."
He also hinted he could debut another song as soon as this weekend.
Justin said: "I wrote a song for my mom. I don't know if it's going to go on the album but I think I'm going to put it out on Mother's Day. Just the struggles she went through and how brave she was and I think the world needs to know that."
He also talked about another track that will address the claims that he fathered a child with a fan.
He said: "The baby situation where they said I had her baby, totally not true by the way, I wrote a song about that. It's my kinda 'Billie Jean.'"
Justin also admitted he had a blast collaborating with Kanye West.
He said: "Just being in the studio with him, he's so creative. He's really smart. He wants to do records that people wouldn't necessarily think that I would do."
A new study shed some light on how to make sure you keep your friend list healthy:
Respond to posts: If someone posts on your wall, reciprocate. The study found this to be the single most important factor in a successful Facebook friendship.
Cool it with the photos: Don't post embarrassing pictures of friends—and think twice before you post anything on a friend's wall about the crazy weekend you all had, since you never know who might see it ... and judge.
Wish acquaintances a happy birthday: The researchers found that people consider it more important that their casual acquaintances send Facebook birthday wishes than their close friends. That's because close friends can always call, text, or say it in person instead.
Don't get too familiar: If you're simply acquaintances with someone, don't try to use Facebook to chat with them or post on their wall (except on their birthday, of course), because that could be considered creepy.
Last night on "The Voice", the remaining two members from each team gave it their all tonight during the semifinals.
Tony Lucca performed "How Do You Like Me Now" by The Heavy, which was "great" according to Blake Shelton.
Katrina Parker sang "Killing Me Softly With his Song," working off the Fugees rendition of the Roberta Flack hit; Blake Shelton commented on her tone and seasoned sound. Meanwhile, Christina Aguilera praised Parker and added that she wished she was Katrina's coach for this song.
Erin Willett gave a soulful rendition of Usher's "Without You." Afterward, the tears flowed as she thought of her deceased father. Blake Shelton told her that he wished he had a tenth of the talent she had, but even more, wished he had her strength.
Jermaine Paul sang Journey's "Open Arms," and earned praise from all four coaches.
Chris Mann gave an operatic performance of "Ave Maria." Cee Lo Green thought it was a "stellar" performance, while Adam Levine found it classic, simple and beautiful.
Lindsey Pavao gave a creative take to Bon Iver's "Skinny Love." Blake Shelton mentioned that it was a "refreshing" performance and Cee Lo pointed out that her voice has a "shy, innocent quality".
Team Cee Lo
Jamar Rogers put his own original spin on Harold Melvin's "If You Don't Know Me By Now". Adam Levine stated he is "purely a fan of what you do," and Blake Shelton appreciated the laid-back performance.
Juliet Simms delivered a gritty, rock rendition of James Brown's "It's a Man's Man's Man's World," that got the energy up in the crowd and a standing ovation from her coach. Cee Lo told her, "You murdered it".
