Kelly Clarkson is going Unplugged.
EW has learned exclusively that the first American Idol winner is set to record an episode of VH1′s Unplugged series, where artists perform some of their hits acoustically. The appearance is part of her promotional tour surrounding her fifth studio album, Stronger, which will be released Oct. 24. Several songs from Stronger are already in circulation, including lead single “Mr. Know It All,” as well “What Doesn’t Kill You (Stronger)” and “You Love Me.”
Clarkson’s foray into the Unplugged spotlight — which will feature both songs from her forthcoming collection, as well as past favorites — will air on VH1 Nov. 18 at 11 p.m., and will launch on VH1.com the day before, Nov. 17, at 7 p.m. Thirty Seconds to Mars, Mumford & Sons, Adele, and Lykke Li have all done Unplugged this year.

Kelly Clarkson on the soundtrack of her life: An exclusive EW interview
Destiny’s plan for this Child? Apparently, it involves getting extra-sessy with a Slinky, reclining in a chaise lounge made of hairless men, and dancing in what looks like a hot Grecian diaper onesie.
Also, trunk-stroking action with an elephant, some casual vogue-ing inside a silver Mylar party balloon, and a smidge of Remy Martin product placement. Plus guest Big Sean, wearing a demure 18 pounds of gold chain.
So much to parse! Click to see it all after the jump: READ FULL STORY
Faith Hill hasn’t officially released a new single since 2007′s “Red Umbrella,” which went to No. 28 on Billboard’s Country Songs chart. But EW has learned exclusively that the country superstar is planning to make her long-awaited comeback by performing a new single, “Come Home,” at this year’s 45th Annual CMA Awards, which will air Nov. 9 on ABC at 8 p.m.
Virtually no details are available about the song, but in February, Hill was quoted as saying that she’d soon be in the studio working on an album of new material. Naturally, she was tight-lipped about what she was recording. “I’m not even prepared to talk about it right now,” she told Billboard at the time. “I’m right in the middle of it, so it’s really hard to describe what it is until I’m done. That’s the honest truth. I’ll be able to tell more, maybe once I come out of the studio in the spring.” READ FULL STORY
Adele’s soaring, cut-yourself-already ballad “Someone Like You” may have recently dipped to No. 2 on Billboard’s Hot 100, but maybe its just released music video — splendid in its simplicity — will help it reclaim the top spot from Maroon 5′s overplayed “Moves Like Jagger.”
The understated, black-and-white clip promoting the song — which you can catch below — is, in a word: quiet. Honestly, it’s just what you’d want to see for this break-up heart-wrencher. Adele spends the nearly five-minute-long video simply walking around Paris, which is somehow fittingly deserted, as she wails through the haunting lyrics. READ FULL STORY
It’s no secret that Mariah Carey has range, but that’s just become even more apparent: A clever video has surfaced on YouTube that splices together Mimi singing through what the video claims are five octaves, two notes, and two semitones.
“That’s over 65 keys!!!!” the video says at the end. You knew she could do it, but actually hearing her go from low to high in a cascade — with each note flashing on the screen as it happens, each about one second apart — is pretty stunning.
Through the video, you can identify a variety of Mariah’s songs in the background — everything from her soaring rendition of “O Holy Night” to “Forever” — although a huge portion of it is pulled from her two notable Christmas albums. (Go figure.)
If you don’t already appreciate the range Mariah has, you will after the jump:
Leave it to Lady Gaga to co-opt a music festival featuring dozens of top-line pop stars and make it her own.
The Lady appeared on stage as the final performer last night at the iHeartRadio Music Festival at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and stayed on stage for well over an hour—much longer than any of the other acts. “They told me I was only allowed to play for 45 minutes,” she told the crowd. “But I think you’re all pretty drunk so you probably don’t know what time it is, do you?”
And it’s true: No one was complaining when she served up hit after hit, including “Judas,” “You and I,” “Just Dance,” and “Bad Romance,” which basically blew the roof off the arena.
If you watched any NFL football yesterday (or at least the underwhelming drubbing the New York Jets dealt out to the Jacksonville Jaguars), then you undoubtedly caught the new commercial for Fiat that prominently features Jennifer Lopez, a series of daredevil stuntmen, and Lopez’s latest Love? single “Papi.”
And shortly after you realized it was an ad for Fiat, you probably thought to yourself, “Huh?”
The whole thing has been clarified a bit thanks to the just-premiered clip for “Papi,” which is essentially a five-minute version of the car ad you’ve already seen, with a plug for Crown Royal Black tossed in for good measure.
Refreshingly, there’s a narrative in the clip that finds Lopez eating some sort of magical cookie that makes every man she comes across obsess over her. The chase becomes infinitely more complicated (and expensive) until she finds herself trapped in a flash-mob production of West Side Story.
You can watch the whole thing below, though prepare to suppress your sudden craving for 90-proof liquor. READ FULL STORY
