"...Tell me why, ain't nothing but a heartbreak..."

We interrupt the holiday hangover item postage to bring you this cuteness from [profile] empressearwig: Selena Gomez and her band take on the Backstreet Boys! With bonus blond, tousled, air-bass-playing ex-Anthemic Joey Clements. I don't know most of these guys, but it's seriously adorable, folks!

Something else adorable: someone's getting cleaned up for serious publicity for someone's impending new album. (Are you happy the glasses are gone, [profile] frackin_sweet?)

From AOL and "...Believe me when I say, I want it that way." (Or, you know, whatever way you're dishing up today, David. ♥ ♥ ♥)

The man is getting hotter by the minute. Mmmhmmm.

I actually love that song, even though it's not my usual cuppa. (And Joey can't dance, but he's still adorable with his infectious energy.) Here, have another, gorgeous acapella version, with cute, talented boys:

Yeah, he's my fire, my one desire, he makes me want it that way :)

I love that song too! And Joey is SOCUTE, c'mon, dancing and everything ♥ And and, I have totally seen vid of Committed, and they are totally cute and talented! I really liked their "Every Breath You Take", too :)

I just don't know how he keeps getting hotter. I thought it was against the law of nature for anyone to be that hawt.

The best thing about the song is the way everybody knows it, so it's an awesome party song. XD

I thought Committed were awesome, but I didn't like their "Every Breath" - it was far too cute when it shoulda been creepy (I already told you about my ~issues with that song, but it's NOT supposed to be sweet and fluffy, dammit). I was all for Street Corner Symphony, though - did you hear their Creep? Or their Fix It? Goosebumps all up and down my spine.

Yes, totally awesome party song! I will admit to karaokeing with my team on occasion, as is one of the cultural bonding things on the Island, and we totally rock this song XDDD

I KNOW your EBYT issues, but if they had done it creepy like it was meant to be, they'd have totally bombed (though it woulda been awesome!). I was linked to Committed youtubes; I don't watch Sing Off and so I missed Street Corner Symphony - I just googled their Creep and HOMG it was amazing! (FTR, I recall you being big into the choral works :))

Imo, if you can't do EBYT right, you shouldn't be doing it at all. ;P The judges actually called them on their lack of grit on that song (cue me pumping my fist in the air and applauding the judges) - it was supposed to be rock, and it wasn't, not at all, so they kind of did bomb a bit anyway.

Sing Off was an awesome show. Made me realise how good a reality contest can be when you have kind-but-constructive-and-competent judges, and everybody loves what they're doing. If you liked Creep you should totally look up their Fix You as well. And, well, all the other songs they did (other than the Beatles medley, because that kind of bombed). They were my absolute faves, followed by the Backbeats (who was a very new group and it showed a bit sometimes, but they gave some truly awesome performances - I recommend "If I Were A Boy", "Landslide" and "Love Shack" - and I have a major crush on their vocal percussionist, ahem) and then Committed came in third for me, purely because they lacked a bit of, well, grit.

Sing Off didn't air on the Island, so I relied on fandom squee over the occasional vid to keep me up to date. And boy, that "Fix You" is really something! They have that edge all right.

Bruce/Sting doing EBYT :) I ship it!

It didn't air here either (we get all the other crappy reality contest, but this one? Not a peep), so I bought a season pass with a giftcard for the US iTunes. It's one of those things that's technically maybe not quite legal, but I can't for the life of me see that anybody gets hurt, so I don't feel bad doing it. iTunes get their money, and I'm not robbing any Danish vendor of revenue. *shrug* It was money well spent, imo.

Bruce/Sting. I ship it. XD

Ah, I don't think anyone would consider it an issue, bb.

LET'S WATCH IT AGAIN :) Bruce looking besotted! Sting doing the Springsteen-style yelps! The jumping around and the close-up singing, and the hugging! ♥

Awwww. They are so adorable. *smishes them* I love it when singers share a mic - they have to get all up in each other's personal space. And these two don't exactly seem to mind. XD

Heh, they sure loved to smish each other! And to share that mic. *watches again* XDDD

It's nice to see dudes owning up to knowing all the words to that song. Granted they're all musicians, but still - I remember doing some impromptu karaoke with some male friends of mine, and they were trying to be all bashful like "Whut? Huh? I totally wasn't into the Backstreet Boys..." and then I'd catch them mouthing along to every word. Seriously, that song was inescapable.

Ahaha, dudes who tour with Disney Princess Selena Gomez might be less afraid to own their inner boyband than your average Joe! You're absolutely right, tho - tha song was EVERYWHERE, man :)

1. That video is adorable.


3. I'm DYING for the new music.

4. I miss you, I hope you're well. <333

1. Isn't it? I miss Joey! I'm glad he's working and happy.

2. Isn't he? I miss him so. I adore the goofy glasses and the beard, but this is the scruffy, cleaned-up Dcook that gets me.

3. I am dying also! Not long now, hopefully!

4. I MISS YOU TOO. I see you out and about and am so glad to see you modding and happy and excited about fandom! I am crazy busy at work, but am trying to make my way through my fic commitments, and then we'll see :)

Haha, do you remember when he thought it would be out six months after ending the never ending tour? Not so much. I really just want new music.

(Also for there to be a duet with a certain blonde, country singer, but I've accepted that won't be happening. Mostly.)

Haha, DCook the eternal optimist! It does sound like the thing's dropping soon - he told the last interviewer "March to May", and that he was 99% sure of its title, and he might actually stick to that schedule?

And, I am holding out hope for Idol Gives Back. Hey, it's Crazy Steven Tyler Year on AI, anything can happen!

Man, he is totally adorable. Beard's getting a little long though! It's reaching Dad-length.

I think...he may have trimmed it a wee bit? Since the glasses and Anthemical facial hair hard-at-work days. Still hot, though.

(I wonder how Tom wld look with a scruffy Dcook beard.)

Tom's jawline is so exquisite I hate to cover it with anything, but knowing how well he manages to pull of everything else he'd probably still be gorgeous.

Yeah, I am sure he'd be unsavoury gorgeous :)

That Selena Gomez video is adorable and she is so pretty. *__* (I'm not a big fan of that dress though.)

And Cook! Oh, my lord. How does that man manage to get more gorgeous everytime I see him? I really can't wait for the new album. :)

Aw, I think her dress is pretty! And her band is such a bunch of cute, goofy, talented boys, including Cook's ex-bassist :)

IKR? Gorgeous, and self-deprecating, and so talented. Can't wait!

I'm not a big fan of the fluffy bit that went across her body and up over her shoulder. Other than that, I liked the dress.

Hee, I liked the fluffy bit! Or rather, I'm not sure I'd wear it myself but I think she works it :)
