Music has always been my first love so I'm beyond excited to release my debut album and it's such an honor to get to do so alongside the amazing artists who call Vanguard home.”

The Vanguard roster of artists includes Matt Nathanson and Greg Laswell.

Kelly Clarkson Vs. Ryan Tedder

For the past few years, Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic has been the golden boy of songwriting and producing…

But now that he’s angered Kelly Clarkson, could those days be over?

In an interview with Canada’s CBC radio network, Kelly said she’s angry that Tedder used the same backing track for her new single that she co-wrote, “Already Gone,” that he used for another single—Beyonce’s hit, “Halo.”

According to, Kelly said in the interview that she didn’t realize the similarities until she heard the songs back-to-back. She said Beyonce’s album came out while hers was already being printed.

She said, “No one's gonna be sittin' at home, thinkin' ‘Man, Ryan Tedder gave Beyoncé and Kelly the same track to write to,’ No, they're just gonna be sayin' I ripped someone off. I called Ryan and said, ‘I don't understand. Why would you do that?’”

Kelly also said she’s upset that her record label released “Gone” as a single without her blessing, but said there’s nothing she can do about it. “It sucks, but it's one of those things I have no control over. I already made my album. At this point, the record company can do whatever they want with it. It's kind of a sh---y situation, but ... you know, you learn.”

I can totally understand why RCA would want to release “Gone” as the next single because it’s one of the best tracks on the CD, but it is a bummer that Kelly will be accused of being a rip-off.

And I have to think that this will hurt Tedder. I know if I was a singer, I would be more nervous to work with him if I thought he might be giving me something he’d already shared with someone else.

So just how similar are they? Take a listen for yourself courtesy of YouTube:

And if you want even scarier proof, here are a couple of mash-ups for you. Kelly may have just discovered the similarity, but YouTube users knew it back in April.
Here’s a mash-up of the two for you, set to the music track from “Already Gone”:

And here’s “Already Gone” set to the track from “Halo”:

I want to slap Ryan Tedder just listening to these…

Sad News From the "Idol" World

I always hate reporting sad news in this blog, but everyone else is talking about this story, so I figured I should too…

Former “Idol” auditioner Alexis Cohen was killed Saturday when she was struck by a car. Daniel Bark appeared in court Monday on charges of reckless driving and leaving the scene of an accident, but those charges have since been upgraded to aggravated manslaughter and drunken driving.

Alexis will forever be known as the contestant who ranted “Take it. Take it. Take it.” and vowed to pursue “actressing” after the judges passed on her during the season seven auditions. She returned to audition again this past season with a new look and attitude…

You can see that famous season seven audition here…

Chris Daughtry Makes “Idol” History

No, Chris Daughtry didn’t win. And no, it doesn’t matter…

Chris has made “Idol” history as Daughtry’s second CD, “Leave This Town,” debuts at #1 on the Billboard 200.

Although it may be hard to believe, Chris is the first Idol to have back-to-back #1 albums.

Kelly Clarkson is the only other Idol to have two #1 albums, but they were not back-to-back (For the record, it was her first and her fourth.)…

Is Paula Really Leaving "Idol"?

For whatever reason, I didn’t even turn on my computer Saturday. But when I checked in with my Twitter page Sunday night, I could tell that something was up in the “Idol” universe…

No doubt you’ve heard the murmurs today that Paula Abdul will not be back on “American Idol.” You may have even seen the headline on the front page of the H-D online earlier today.

So is Paula leaving? As the adage goes, don’t believe everything you read…

I’m not saying that the Associated Press doesn’t know what it’s talking about. I’m saying that Paula’s manager may be using it to get what he wants for his client…

After all, do you think it’s a coincidence that this story appears just one week after Ryan Seacrest signed his three-year $45 million deal? I don’t think so…

All of this started Friday night, when the “LA Times” website quoted Paula’s manager as saying, “Very sadly, it does not appear that she's going to be back on ‘Idol.’”

He said that he had reached out to the people at 19 to let them know that Paula would love to stay on the show and they said they would be in touch. But according to him, they haven’t been.

Fast forward to the weekend where a Twitter movement began among Paula fans showing their support for her staying on the show. Among the fans were a slew of former Idols, Ryan Seacrest and former executive producer, Nigel Lythgoe. Even Simon Cowell came out in support of her today in an interview with “Extra.”

Somewhere, Paula’s manager is sporting a big smile…

Because with every single tweet, he has one more piece of ammo to use in his fight against 19 and FOX.

Personally, I hope it’s a fight he wins because I can’t imagine “Idol” without Paula.

Now, without Kara? I can definitely imagine that. In fact, I encourage it…

What do you guys think? Would you be okay with a Paula-less “Idol”?

Jordin Sparks CD Review: A True R&B Diva Has Arrived

It was obvious from the first time she declared, “Better go and get your armor” that we were dealing with a more mature Jordin Sparks.

And that maturity shines through big time on her new CD, “Battlefield,” as Jordin gives us a much stronger sound than we got with her debut album. Plus, Jordin worries a little less about radio-friendly pop and focuses on songs that show off her considerable vocal talents…

Jordin does show the playful side we’re used to with songs like “Walking On Snow,” “Emergency (911)” and “S.O.S. (Let The Music Play),” which features the chorus of the 80s Shannon hit, “Let the Music Play,” but there’s definitely more of an edge. Mid-tempo songs like the FeFe Dobson cover, “Don’t Let It Go To Your Head,” “It Takes More” and “Watch You Go” are smooth as silk. And Jordin doesn’t forget the ballads as she scores with “Was I the Only One” and the beautiful album closer, “The Cure,” which shows off a nice falsetto.

Jordin takes two slight risks with the mid-tempo “Let It Rain” and the gospel-influenced, “Faith.” “Rain” has a great verse, but the chorus tries a rock edge that doesn’t completely work and causes her to go a little overboard with her voice. “Faith” sounds eerily similar to a good Mariah Carey ballad. The bridge to the gospel portion of the song does lack a little punch, but Jordin brings it back with a nice ending.

The two standouts here are the title track and current single “Battlefield” and the ballad “No Parade.” “Battlefield” was the perfect first single from the CD because it beautifully announces Jordin’s arrival as an R&B force to be reckoned with. “Parade” does the same but in a much different way. This song has hit potential written all over it with Jordin’s beautiful use of her lower register on the verse and the beautiful chorus: “Just another day like any other/Nothin’ in the sky said run for cover/Just another reason I never thought that it would end this way/There was no parade/No lights flashing/No song to sing along the way.”

One of the many things I love about “American Idol” is watching how the winners advance through their careers. And Jordin’s second effort is definitely a step in the right direction as she serves notice to Rihanna, Beyonce, and other R&B divas that she has arrived.

I suggest that they’d better go and get their armor…

“Battlefield” is available in stores and on digital outlets Tuesday, July 21st…
