After wrapping the US leg of her ‘Number Ones Tour’, Pop queen Janet Jackson is set to guest on The Insider this Thursday.

While it’s not known what her Janetsty will divulge, I can only hope it’ll shed some light on her next steps musically. Call us selfish, but her recent successes have – whether she likes it or not – afforded her another lifeline after a string of commercial under-performers; as such, we want her to use it. She needs to hop in the studio with Jimmy Jam, Terry Lewis, and Darkchild, and brew up that album we so know she has left in her.

Whatever the case, bring on Thursday.

Mariah Carey is in the giving mood.

In support of the deluxe edition version of her’Merry Christmas II You‘ LP which hits stores next year, the Sanaa Hamri directed clip was shot at Carey’s Beverly Hills home some weeks back and features a number of special guest appearances.

That Grape Juice were lucky enough to have been invited to attend Beyonce’s ITV Special back in July.

As is typically the case with such tapings, more performances than those aired were shot – yet seemingly left on the cutting room floor. Surprising, given many of them were actually better than those which were screened when ‘A Night With Beyonce’ aired last week.

Fret not, though; for a number of those showings have since surfaced online. As ever, we’ve got the good good after the jump.

Sidenote: There is nothing better than an “Urban” London crowd whose tickets were free. They set it all the way off! Peep ‘Run The World’ especially to see what we mean!


Solo dreams must have been long on the agenda of For, the Black Eyed Peas frontman has wasted little to no time re-launching his bid for singular stardom – merely weeks after the group disbanded.

BET brings their own brand of Christmas cheer in the form of their annual holiday special ‘A Very BET Christmas’. Boasting performances from some of today’s R&B frontrunners, see Lloyd, Monica, Robin Thicke, and more shine in the festive showing.

While fans appetites were whet with a special teaser earlier tonight, you can catch all the performances in full after the jump:


Given her increasingly busy schedule, ‘Where You At’ just may be a question Grammy-winning diva Jennifer Hudson hears many times a day.  With promo for ‘The Three Stooges’ movie and her book tour for the forthcoming ‘I Got This’ memoir, Hudson has definitely racking up her frequent flier miles.  While fans anxiously await her inclusion on VH1’s reboot of‘Divas’ (airing Dec 19) and ABC’s ‘Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade’ (December 25), the ‘Spotlight’ songstress was recently seen touching down for her date with the president for TNT’s annual “Christmas In Washington”.

Though taped this weekend, the JHud, Cee-Lo Green, and Justin Bieber-assisted showing will not air until December 16th.

‘Not Myself Tonight’ singer Christina Aguilera was clearly not in the mood to be photographed when spotted treating herself to a Beverly Hills holiday shopping trip this weekend.  Joined by boyfriend Matt Rutler, the multi-platinum songstress may not be the best judge of wardrobe but she’s certainly winning reviews from fans for her judging skills on NBC’s blockbuster talent show ‘The Voice’.

Set for its season 2 launch on February 5, the trek will kickoff what will undoubtedly be a busy 2012 for the comeback queen (including a reported new album).

They did it!!

Moments ago, Pop quartet Little Mix were crowned the winners of X Factor 2011.

Securing the much coveted million pound recording track with SyCO Music, the ladies are the first group in X Factor UK history to win the show.

Well done girls!

Here’s to hoping the years that follow are  filled with the friendship, creativity and work ethic  you’ll need to become the super group your label are hoping you will be.
