Carly Rae Jepsen Performs New Track “All That” on SNL

Following the success of her newest single, “I Really Like You,” Carly Rae Jepsen made her  debut on SNL this weekend as the musical guest.  During the show, she premiered a brand new song from her upcoming album!  The new track,  “All That,” is an airy 80’s ballad that contrasts the upbeat singles she’s released previously.  It definitely shows off her softer side, as well as her vocal abilities.

Watch Carly Rae Jepsen perform “All That” on SNL below.

The Friday Five: The Music of Hart Of Dixie

While The CW’s “Hart of Dixie” hasn’t officially been canceled, the show’s creator and actors have already posted their goodbyes on social media, making it seem like this is the end.  We’re going to miss this show, with it’s wonderful cast of characters, and the music.  “Hart of Dixie” definitely helped contribute to our new found love of country music, with a soundtrack filled with everyone from Dierks Bentley to Thomas Rhett to Hunter Hayes, perfect for the show’s small-town Alabama setting.  The show even brought in quite a few country guest stars during its run.  Here are some of “Hart of Dixie’s” most memorable musical moments!

The “Hart of Dixie” finale airs tonight at 8pm on The CW.

1. Danielle Bradbery
When she released a track called “The Heart of Dixie,” it was pretty much a given that she’d show up in Bluebell.

2. Gloriana
We’re still impressed with how Wade and Lemon got the band to perform at the Rammer Jammer.

3. Logan Mize
The “Can’t Get Away From A Good Time” singer was a guest star on the show before signing with Sony last year.

4. Jamestown Revival
Their appearance in last week’s episode was one of many moments during the show that had us Shazam-ing or Googling song lyrics to find out what song was playing.

5. George Tucker
We love that George Tucker, Renaissance Man, is heading to Nashville.  If music management doesn’t work out, you can always sing!  And hey Scott Porter, if you want to release a country album, we’d fully support that!

Bonus:  More George Tucker

Eye Candy To Premiere on MTV January 12th!

If you watched the “Pretty Little Liars” ChristmAs special, then you probably caught the promo for MTV’s upcoming show “Eye Candy.”  All we knew about the show before seeing the commercial was that it starred Victoria Justice, filmed in NYC, and was based on an R.L. Stine book.  But after watching the perfectly creepy preview, we think we might have just found another PLL-worthy show to obsess over.  (Or, at least a replacement for our beloved “Twisted.” R.I.P.)  Watch the promo for “Eye Candy” below!

The show premieres on MTV on January 12th at 10pm.  We’re excited to see our girl Victoria back on screen!  She’s been busy filming nonstop since wrapping up the Summer Break Tour with Big Time Rush last year.  While we hope one day she’ll decide to relaunch her music career (Billboard agrees!), we’re looking forward to “Eye Candy” and her upcoming movie “Naomi and Ely’s No Kiss List.”

The Friday Five: TV Show Theme Songs

There are some people who hit the skip button on Netflix when marathoning a TV show as soon as the credits start to appear.  We are not those people.  Isn’t part of the fun of a marathon singing along to the theme song every 46 minutes?   Here are some of our favorite TV show theme songs.

1. “I Don’t Want To Wait” – Paula Cole
Theme to “Dawson’s Creek”
Several of the seasons on DVD have a substitute theme song.  We guess Paula Cole didn’t want to be remembered as “the person who sang the ‘Dawson’s Creek’ theme song.”  Way too late. We’ll still burst into “I Don’t Wanna Wait” when the credits start to roll.  And something just feels off with the new theme song, almost like putting in a new cast member.

2. “California” – Phantom Planet
Theme to “The O.C.”
The greatest TV show of all time also has one of the greatest theme songs of all time.  Music was such an important part of the show -and we were thrilled to find out that Seth Cohen had our same taste in music. Raise your hand if you’re still searching for your own Seth Cohen.  So are we.   When we hear any song from the series, we can immediately picture what scene from “The O.C.” it went along with.

3. -“Hey Sandy” – Polaris
Theme to “The Adventures of Pete & Pete”
Did you know that the band Polaris was specifically formed to create the music and theme song for “Pete & Pete?”   The band recently reunited and are out on tour this Fall. Nickelodeon was on point in the 90s with their programming because this show was SO GOOD!  It was also extremely strange but that’s probably why us 90s kids turned out the way we did.  Can we double dog dare someone to get a Petunia tattoo and make her dance?

4.  “Camp Anawanna” – Cast of “Salute Your Shorts”
Theme song to “Salute Your Shorts”
Another Nickelodeon show that was super bizarre but it made us wish our parents sent us to sleep away summer camp.  “Salute Your Shorts” was only on the air for two seasons but it was the best two seasons of our lives!  Bet you still remember all the words to  this TV show theme song/camp fire sing-along.

5. “Boy Meets World” Theme Song
Theme song to “Boy Meets World”
It’s hard to believe that the song we all associate with the series was only added in the later seasons of the show.  The opening credits went through several versions before landing on this one.  The theme song to the series’ spinoff, “Girl Meets World,” is pretty great, too.  It’s good to know I have friends who will always stand by me.

 

Nick & Drew Lachey Get Their Own Reality Show on A&E

In a plot that sounds oddly familiar, A&E announced today that it had greenlighted a series that follows boy band members and brothers Nick and Drew Lachey, of 98 Degrees, as they open a bar in their hometown of Cincinatti, OH.   Why mess with a formula that works? The show will premiere on A&E in 2015, and filming is already underway.

Both Nick and Drew are no strangers to reality TV.  Nick was a pioneer in the celeb-reality genre, staring in MTV’s “Newlyweds” back in 2003.  Drew was the champion of the second season of ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars,” and returned for their all-star season in 2012.

We’ll definitely be tuning in.
