On Wednesday night's edition of The X Factor, the top six performed for the opportunity to advance to next week's semifinals. Only four of the acts will reach the penultimate round.
Each act took the stage twice, singing a hit by a popular diva and later delivering an "unplugged" performance.
As always, the judges' table was occupied by Simon Cowell, Demi Lovato, Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio.
The top six took shape on Thanksgiving night, when Josh Levi and Lillie McCloud were eliminated.
Here's what happened on Wednesday night's show:
Simon's country trio Restless Road presented their rendition of…
Mariah Carey, Kelly Clarkson and Mary J. Blige helped kick off the Christmas season in New York City Wednesday night with musical performances on NBC's annual Christmas in Rockefeller Center extravaganza. The evening also featured performances by Toni Braxton, Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds, Goo Goo Dolls, Ariana Grande, Leona Lewis and Jewel.
The annual TV special from New York City’s Rockefeller Center was hosted by Today show co-hosts Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie, Al Roker and Natalie Morales.
Here's a rundown of the highlights:
Mariah opened the show with a medley of the holiday classic, “Joy to the World” and the Three Dog Night…
One of the promotional appearances Lady Gaga made while hyping her album ARTPOP involved showing up at midnight for the opening of H&M's new flagship store in New York's Times Square -- the connection was that the store is carrying the disc, along with H&M's usual array of clothing and accessories. But now there's a report that the singer cashed a massive paycheck for that appearance.
The New York Post claims that Gaga was paid 500 thousand bucks to appear at the opening, and since she stayed for an hour and 40 minutes, she essentially earned $5,000 per minute for…
Phillip Phillips' debut album has been a huge success, and he says in 2014, fans can look forward to some new music from him.
The American Idol season 11 champ tells Billboard, "I'm always writing some music. I've got some things I'm pretty excited for. I'm going to try to have an album out by spring or summer, to be able to tour next summer."
Speaking of touring, this past year, Phillip got the chance to open for both Matchbox Twenty and John Mayer, something he says made a huge impact on him. "It's been a freakin' busy year, but…
We already know that Ed Sheeran has Taylor Swift's stamp of approval in general, but he's also happy that Taylor is enjoying his new music as well.
Speaking to MTV about his forthcoming album, the British singer said that he had asked Taylor for feedback on the tunes. "Whenever I finished a song, I'd send it to her to get her opinion," he told MTV. "She's heard all the songs and she's a good judge of what's good or not good."
The album won't be released until after the 2014 awards season, though, because Ed has joined the Oscar race. …
In a surprising development, Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball," which was #1 for two weeks a few months ago, has returned to the top of the Billboard Hot 100, knocking off Lorde's "Royals," which had ruled for two weeks. Why did this happen? It's all because of some dude named Stephen Kardynal.
According to Billboard, Kardynal's parody video version of "Wrecking Ball" -- a nearly shot-by-shot recreation which features him lip-synching to Miley's original version -- has gone viral. Because Billboard changed its rules earlier this year to include YouTube streams when it calculates chart position, the frequent plays of Kardynal's…
All of the headlines about Justin Bieber's Australian tour lately have focused on his alleged bad behavior, like tagging a hotel wall with graffiti, showing up late for concerts and not keeping his entourage from mistreating people. But here's something that proves that the singer is truly a good person at heart: he gave a seriously injured fan in Melbourne a private concert.
According to the Australian Herald Sun, the lucky teen was Katie O'Neill, a Justin Bieber fan who had saved thousands of dollars in order to attend every one of his Australian shows. Last month, she was in…
Paramore will be wrapping up their North American Self-Titled tour this month, but bassist Jeremy Davis won’t be on stage with the group for the final dates. Frontwoman Hayley Williams and guitarist Taylor York revealed in a blog post on their website that Davis will be dropping out of the remainder of the December gigs so he can support his wife during the birth of their first child.
“Jeremy and his wife, Kathryn, are getting ready to have their baby girl,” writes the band. “We're weeks away now. So he won't be with us at these Christmas shows but now…
Jay Z and Beyonce have adopted a new lifestyle by deciding to go vegan temporarily.
On Tuesday, the rap mogul announced his "22 Days Challenge" in which he will only eat plant-based foods. "Psychologists have said it takes 21 days to make or break a habit. On the 22nd day, you’ve found the way," he wrote on his Life+Times website. "This all began a few months back when a good friend and vegan challenged me to embrace a 'plant-based breakfast' everyday. It was surprisingly easier on me than I thought."
The challenge began on the eve of his 44th birthday,…
Maybe some people think One Direction is just some passing fad, but here's proof that they're not. The group's new album Midnight Memories has debuted at #1 on the Billboard chart, and in the process, made some history. The British act is now the first group ever to have their first three albums debut at #1.
Midnight Memories' success follows the #1 debuts of the group's first two discs, Up All Night and Take Me Home. Midnight Memories sold 546,000 copies in its first week in stores, more than those previous two sold in their first two weeks.
The Goo Goo Dolls are just one of the many acts who'll be performing on Wednesday night's Christmas in Rockefeller Center special on NBC, which marks the illumination of New York City's famous Christmas tree. But the guys in the group don't think they'll be able to do much mingling with the other performers....well, at least one of them, anyway.
"I doubt they'll let us in the same room with Mariah Carey," jokes Goo Goo Dolls frontman Johnny Rzeznik, referring to the fact that the diva is also on the bill. "I'm sure she has her own sort of compound…
