Carrie Underwood & Steven Tyler Are Teaming Up

Carrie Underwood & Steven Tyler.

This should be quite a rock show. CMT announced this morning that Carrie Underwood and Steven Tyler will be starring in a very special episode of CMT Crossroads next month. The episode will be part of the Pepsi Super Bowl Fan Jam. The show will be filmed at the Pepsi Coliseum in the Indiana State Fair Grounds. It’s a private event that will sure to rock. The show will air on CMT on February 4th, 2012 at 11 pm EST / 10 pm CST.

This isn’t the first time that the pair have performed live together: Steven surprised everyone when he joined Carrie on-stage for a duet of “Undo It” at the 2011 Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas. They then switched to the Aerosmith super-hit “Walk This Way.” Watch the video of that performance below and make sure to let us know what songs you want to see the pair sing together on the special:

Get Blown Away By Carrie’s 2012!

When we caught wind of just how incredible Carrie Underwood‘s 2012 was, we were simply blown away. Not only were we amazed by the laundry list of successful moments Carrie experienced, but we were exhausted just thinking about everything Carrie accomplished in only 366 days (Leap Year, y’all … are we observant, or what?)! The following is what Carrie’s year consisted of:

Just a Dream On

steven-tyler-carrie-underwood-456-040311-1301891492

All of you American Idol viewers out there know that, as sure as Randy Jackson is to call a contestant “Dawg,” Steven Tyler is just as likely to tell that contestant that he/she/the performance was “beautiful.” So, it should come as no surprise that Steven is releasing a new song, cleverly titled “Beautiful” (bet you didn’t see that coming!).

However, there is an unexpected addition to that announcement. You might also recall one of American Idol’s most beautiful contestants – both in looks and in vocals – Carrie Underwood. Carrie, one of country music’s biggest superstars, is teaming up with Steven on the new track, “Beautiful,” to create what Steven calls a “country-Western crossover ballad.”

I don’t know about all of you out there, but I feel like a duet like this could truly only be “just a dream” and that the rocker/country girl duo would say “dream on!” to anybody who ever predicted this pairing. However, that dream is becoming a reality when Aerosmith’s new album, “Music From Another Dimension!” is released in November of this year!

Brad Paisley Joining American Idol?

Rumors have been flying for days now on who will be the replacement for Steven Tyler on American Idol next season, and many country stars have found their names in the mix. A report out now from Deadline is saying that Brad Paisley is being strongly considered for the new judge on the hit reality singing competition.

Brad has performed on American Idol in the past, and co-hosts the Country Music Association (CMA) awards with former winner Carrie Underwood. There’s been quite a few successful country acts to come from Idol – Kelly Clarkson, Kellie Pickler, Carrie, Casey James, Lauren Alaina and Scotty McCreery, all started their careers on the show.

Brad’s former tour mate, Blake Shelton, is currently one of the four coaches on The Voice.

What do you think about Brad being a judge? Do you think it will steal viewers back from The Voice or are you sick of Idol?

Review: Duets – It Takes Two (Again)

Ladies and gentleman, it’s time to du-et again!

Our trusty host Quinoa is back to remind us how this show works. Except no one knows. What we do know is that a quartet of super talented “superstars” (Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, Jennifer Nettles & Robin Thicke) chose a bunch of moderately talented amateurs to sing with. The stars then score the performances on their mysterious judging tablets of doom and their partners’ faces appear on a Family Feud-esque leader board. Now that that’s out of the way, let’s start the show.

First up are Kelly Clarkson & Robin Thicke with a duet of the Michael Jackson/Jackson 5 track, “State of Shock.” Not gonna lie, this performance has me in a state of shock. I’m not sure if it’s the fact that John & Jennifer were left out, or if its Robin’s sleeveless V-neck and surprisingly lovely biceps, or the fact that lyrics to this song include the words “catatonic” and “supersonic”, but Krobin are getting a little too freaky for ABC. Seriously, Reba would not approve of this…and I think I’ve been impregnated through my television.

After a quick recap of last week that left Team Kelly at the bottom of the scoreboard and Team Jennifer’s J. Rome at the top, we’re ready to get to the “classic” duets.
