UK sensation JLS performed on the BBC’s hit show ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ recently. The boy band did a rendition of their latest single ‘One Shot’. To date, the single has peaked at #32 on the UK Singles Chart.

Is Leona Lewis the only ‘The X Factor’ alum who doesn’t need to rely on a backtrack when she hits the stage? JLS lip-synced that entire performance. With the lack of intense choreography, that song could have been easily delivered. I have no problem with singers who use tracks during intense promotional ventures so that they can preserve their voices or if they are ill. However, unless they have all come down with a sudden case of strep throat, they have no excuse. Get it together!

Jamie Foxx has been hard at work on his next studio album. One of the songs emerging from his studio sessions is ‘Quit Your Job’, which was written and produced by The-Dream and Tricky Stewart. Foxx’s new album hits stores later this year.

This song definitely has The-Dream and Stewart written all over it. From the colourful, almost ‘Sesame Street’ melodies to the beat, the record remains within familiar territory for the production duo. Although a nice track, Foxx sounds more like The-Dream than anything else, especially the end when he ascends into his falsetto. Artists need to be careful not to lose their identity when being directed by producers. As proven by some of the songs on Mariah Carey’s ‘Memoirs of An Imperfect Angel’ album, it is very easy to get lost in the production.

Your favourite Bajan model and mine, Rihanna, performed her moderate hit ‘Russian Roulette’ at the NRJ Awards 2010 in France tonight. You can check out the performance above.

While the ‘Russian Roulette’ has grown on me ever-so-slightly (yes, you read right!), I can’t say the performance was much of substance. Ms. Fenty backed out of many a note, giving a very Diet-Coke version of the song. Not bad, but certainly nothing to write home about…then again when is that ever the case with Rihanna live?

What do you think of the performance?

International star Kelly Rowland took to the stage at the 2010 NRJ Awards in France a few hours ago; the ‘Like This’ singer performed her chart-topping smash ‘When Love Takes Over’ with David Guetta.

Ms. Kelly served up the goodness with this performance; great vocals, off-the-charts confidence, and a stunning look, Kelly did the damn thing. Great performance!

As celebrities prepare to perform on this evening’s ‘Hope for Haiti Now’ concert, reports have surfaced that Simon Cowell is planning a tribute of his own. Billboard.com confirms that the ‘American Idol’ judge is working on a charity single to benefit the Caribbean nation which will feature Leona Lewis, Susan Boyle and Cheryl Cole. The Sun goes further, noting that Beyonce, Lady GaGa, Robbie Williams and Wyclef Jean will also be involved. Here is what Cowell had to say about the project:

“I wanted to do something for Haiti so when I had calls from The Sun and the Prime Minister asking if I would get involved I agreed immediately. We are going to do a single. We only made the decision today. I have got to get it together in 48 hours.”

Cheryl Cole said: “I would be happy to lend my support.”

Last night Simon started work at the National Television Awards spreading word about our plans. And he will urge record labels to get top artists involved.

I knew it was only a matter of time before charity single came about. I always enjoy these types of projects because they allow celebrities the opportunity to lend their voices to something that benefits others. I am eager to see who else is added to the list!
