Radio Disney Classic Rewind – Jeopardy, Hollywood Ending’s first show, Taylor Swift performance analyzed, Mackenzie Ziegler releases lyric video for Shine, Plug In Stereo to release self-titled album, Tonight Alive on Kerrang! podcast, Lights to perform special show at Hard Rock Cafe New York, Joey King rocks out to Aaron Carter
Remember when… Radio Disney was featured as an answer on Jeopardy? Sadly, those days are long gone and serve as a reminder of the power that the Kids’ Radio Network once had.
Three years ago today Hollywood Ending performed their first show in Michigan.
Did you love Taylor Swift‘s performance at the MTV VMAs or were you cringing? I didn’t watch it, but I probably would’ve been cringing as many of you know I’m not a fan of seeing performers hide behind pre-recorded tracks. The Concourse has posted a clip with her vocals isolated, and it ain’t pretty. (Update: Most of the videos online from her performance including MTV.com have been removed and Viacom has made The Concourse shorten the length of the isolated clip).
FYI: Sometime within’ the last five years I wrote a very critical review of an act on a national tour with T2 featured acts that lip sync’d the majority of their set. I received feedback from some fans that complained, but believe it or not when I got a chance to see that show a few months later in another state I was thanked by the supporting acts and even the headliner for being the only one to write about what they considered the most embarrassing thing about that tour. (If you ever see me in person you can ask and I’ll tell you the full story).
The lyric video for Mackenzie Ziegler‘s inspirational new single, Shine is now on YouTube. Say what you want but this girl is going places and we’re long overdue for some young talent. #girlparty
