 Tonight saw ‘Most Girls’ singer Pink grace the ‘X Factor UK‘ stage with a performance of her new single ‘Try’, pulled from her new album ‘The Truth About Love‘.

Joined by a phenomenal orchestra and those vocals, this performance is a little tamer than her set at the ‘American Music Awards‘, though still as captivating.

Though armed with the benefit of ‘The X Factor UK’, Brit belle Tulisa has oft struggled to prove her worth as a ‘high end’ act since joining the series last year.

Indeed, though she stands as a far better vocalist than one time judge Cheryl Cole, the ‘Young‘ singer’s undeniably ‘basic’ demeanour has seen her fall short of winning the  support afforded to Cole by both the press and the general public during her time on the show.

Now watch her perform her latest single ‘Sight Of You’ on tonight’s episode and let us know what you thought of it below…

It was the unexpected news many a Lil Kim fan found themselves rejoicing in last night.

Yes, in what marked the first positive news to come from the Rapper since her critically acclaimed ‘Return Of The Queen’ Tour, Kim found herself showered with ‘congratulations’ upon claiming she was the new ‘First Lady’ of the alcoholic beverage, ‘Ciroc‘.

However, tweets that followed her announcement have seen her alleged deal with the company thrown into disrepute.

This week’s From The Vault pick features two R&B titans who joined forces for what would become one of 2004’s biggest releases. Of course, we’re talking Usher and Alicia Keys’ ‘My Boo’.

After the tremendous success of their albums, the Diamond-selling ‘Confessions’ and the Multi-Platinum ‘The Diary Of Alicia Keys’  – Ush and AK united to record the Jermaine Dupri produced track; a decision that would prove a wise one as it gave them their 7th and 2nd #1 on Billboard Hot 100 respectively.

In addition to its 6 weeks reign atop of the said chart – and a #36 ranking on the Decade-End tally – ‘My Boo’ reached the fifth spot of the UK charts and was nominated for two Grammys, winning one and losing the other… to none other than Alicia Keys and her signature hit ‘If I Ain’t Got You’.

The Chris Robinson directed visual complimenting the song’s lyrics saw the two singers reminiscing on the love that once was, wandering the empty streets of New-York and eventually meeting in Times Square.

Eight years later, Usher and Alicia are still slaying the charts and blazing stages worldwide. Sure, neither may shift the type of units they once did (see: recession, rise of illegal downloading, and the general roller-coaster that is a “career”) . However, they remain major industry figures and have cultivated success narratives that serve as both inspirations to both newcomers as well as their chart rivals. Indeed, while some of the acts outselling both at present are popular, these two are also respected – a particularly important difference.

Talents like those never cease to amaze, so we’re confident these two have a few more successful decades in music ahead of them.

Jordin Sparks lit up Carson’s in North Riverside Plaza in Illinois yesterday, when she launched her brand new fragrance ‘Ambition‘.

Thus far, the album has sold 600,000 units worldwide and preceded her starring role in ‘Sparkle’, in which she starred in with the late Whitney Houston.

Though they may strike Gold on the Hot 100, it’s become increasingly apparent that the likes of Pitbull, Flo Rida and Rihanna are anything but the mega sellers their countless #1 singles should make them.

Instead, while they don’t always ‘soar’ when it comes to singles, the likes of Jay Z & Drake continue to stand as music’s real winners, renown for shifting albums…in abundance.

Now find out how they, Kanye West and ‘End Of Time’ singer Beyonce are leading this year’s chart pack with their latest releases below…
