Kelly Clarkson rocks out with flash mobs in new video 'Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)'

Flash mobs just found a new theme song, courtesy of the just-released video for Kelly Clarkson’s latest single, “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)” her second single off Stronger.

Like some of her previous vids, the clip is half Clarkson on a stage, full attitude with the microphone, sassily walking around singing her story.

The other half explains how she’s been wronged: In this case, the story is essentially a giant “It Gets Better/Can’t Hold Us Down” dance-off the world over. Everybody is getting stronger all over the place — and whether it’s an exercise class, the beach, or Times Square, it’s the perfect place to let loose and move on. It’s “Since U Been Gone” round two. Clarkson’s got  your back.

Chord Overstreet solo track 'Beautiful Girl' leaks! Listen here

He may have just made his triumphant return to Glee (with some swoon-worthy pining for Mercedes) but Chord Overstreet is also making some sweet music on his own.

In this just-leaked clip for a new original song, “Beautiful Girl,” Overstreet leaves McKinley High behind and sings a sweet piano-accompanied ode to the girl of his dreams. Sorry, Santana — it’s probably safe to say it’s not you.

With its upbeat melody and boy-band-ready odes of love for lyrics, the song will undoubtedly be a hit with the Glee set — no surprise from the guy who gave a pretty killer Justin Bieber impression last season.

'T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever)' video from Will.i.am, Jennifer Lopez, and Mick Jagger has arrived. So what's the most ridiculous part?

There is nothing more I could say here to entice you to watch the just-released video for “T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever),” the Will.i.am track featuring Mick Jagger and Jennifer Lopez that they (minus a video’d-in Jagger) previously performed on the American Music Awards.

Much like Stefon regularly says on SNL, this video has everything: psychedelic color wars, motorcycle stunts, and instantly appearing screens of Lopez having a pose-off with herself.

I think the fairest thing to say is it’s exactly what you were probably expecting — if what you were expecting was a 2 Fast 2 Furious outtake crossed with E.T. (the movie, not the Katy Perry song, although, honestly, that works too) that at some point around minute 2 turns into a video game portal into the next galaxy — with a shimmying, rocking Mick Jagger to guide the way.

I hope you don’t get motion sickness, because there is definitely an abundance of what appears to be strobe-light-lite once this video begins to defy gravity: READ FULL STORY

Adele or Faux-dele? Watch the singer's doppelganger in new 'Set Fire to the Rain' video

Adele better hurry up and release the official video for her third single off 21, because it looks like she’s got some (scarily similar) competition.

In this decidely non-official video for the soul star’s upcoming official third single “Set Fire to the Rain,” the song is reimagined as a love triangle between a woman, her boyfriend and her boyfriend’s lover, who appears to be stealing him away with some modern dance. Watch the clip, intercut with moody, hidden-in-the-shadows shots of Adele (or “Adele”), below:

British Navy lipsync Mariah Carey's 'All I Want For Christmas Is You': I'm On a Boat edition!

Here at EW, we love a good Christmas lip dub. And this heartwarming frolic on the high seas is no exception.

According to the video description, the crew of the HMS Ocean found out they would all get to be going home for the holidays after 214 days at sea, and they just had to celebrate–sometimes shirtless.

It turns out that Christmas joy means the same thing on a boat as it does everywhere else: Breaking out Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” and dancing your Santa-loving heart out.

Watch the crew’s explosion of Christmas cheer, including elaborate impromptu costumes (made only with things they had aboard — crafty!), high kicks and more below: READ FULL STORY

Madonna debuts new song 'Masterpiece' -- and we might like it

Madonna has been off the musical radar for a while, but she’s getting an early start on her expected reign over 2012. She’s officially performing at the Super Bowl, and there’s also a new song called “Masterpiece” that is slated to be included on both her upcoming new album as well as the soundtrack to her film W.E.

The version streaming online sounds a little hollow, but overall “Masterpiece” is an uncluttered presentation that recalls the Material Girl’s outre mid-’90s period, which saw the birth of an eclectic batch of hits like “I’ll Remember” and “Take a Bow.” Both of those songs share a certain vibe with “Masterpiece,” which has the same kind of moody, direct energy and sound. Madge’s voice sounds particularly sharp, without distracting digital correction.

All in all, it’s pretty gorgeous, and quite a ways away from the four-on-the-floor club tracks that have littered her previous two albums Hard Candy and Confessions on a Dance Floor. Give “Masterpiece” a spin here.

Taylor Swift is the girl in the cubicle next door in her new video for 'Ours': Watch it here

Country’s platinum cutie goes for full sweetness in the new video for “Ours,” a bonus song off Speak Now.

An ode to love conquering all isn’t exactly a departure for Swift, but instead of fairy-tale princesses and sparkly dresses, she’s rocking the corporate-commuter look, with messy hair (new bangs!) and tennis shoes — and an iPad for sending love messages out during during office hours. Her life is in shades of gray — from the elevator to the break room, they’re all drones — except for the fun, brightly colored memories when she is with her man (that would be Friday Night Lights star Zach Gilford).

Kudos to Swift for putting out a slightly more adult, more realistic video that still captures that butterflies-in-your-stomach, crazy-in-love tone that she is so famous for.

Justin Bieber and Mariah Carey's 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' video has arrived -- VIDEO

Get ready for the cheeriest Macy’s commercial you’re going to see this season.

Justin Bieber has released the video for “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” his duet with Mariah Carey off his Christmas album Under the Mistletoe. And I’ll leave you all to debate the relative vocal merits of his take versus Carey’s iconic original– don’t forget the awesome Love Actually version! — but I can’t get past the clip.

Here are my five takeaways after watching it (Spoiler alert: I want to go to Macy’s):

1. Mariah Carey’s sexy santa outfit: Seriously, that woman hasn’t aged a day since 1994.

2. The intro begins with quick shots between Mimi’s thighs and Bieber’s eyes, making me all kinds of uncomfortable.

3. At the moment (1:15) when Santa hands out tickets to meet Justin, I hope you all notice the tickets say ‘Midnight at MACY’S.’ They might as well have annotated all of the Bieber paraphernalia you can buy at MACY’S! MACY’S: Making your holiday dreams come true!

4.I’m a sucker for a puppy. Sorry Justin, that dog with a bow in the sleigh is the cutest thing about this. I want him for Christmas, please.

5. The product placement. Oh, the product placement! This thing makes a Kardashian wedding look homegrown. In addition to the Macy’s tickets, we’ve got multiple Nitendo3DSs, shoes, and jewelry.  My favorite moment may be when they stop showing individual products and just let Bieber flat-out boogie in the middle of a full display.

Lady Gaga announces release of surprise holiday EP: Hear a new track here

If you aren’t in the holiday spirit already, Lady Gaga is determined to get you there by this weekend.

First there was the barrage of ads for her A Very Gaga Thanksgiving special, airing tomorrow night; then, she launched her window bonanza at Barneys.

And now, making your traveling this weekend a little easier, she has also just announced on Twitter she is putting out a surprise mini-holiday release, A Very Gaga Holiday. I guess Lady Gaga: Total Holiday Domination was taken.

The four-track EP, all culled live from her Thanksgiving special and available now on iTunes, includes “White Christmas,” “Orange Colored Sky,” “You and I,” and “Edge of Glory.”

For a long time, many fans have been clamoring for some kind of EP or acoustic CD to really showcase her voice, as oppose to the fashion, flash, and onstage “decapitations.” After her well-received duet with Tony Bennett, this seems to be another step in that direction. The songs show how much her voice really is well-suited for the big-band and jazz-era stylings on these tunes — much like her slowed-down, showstopping performance of “Edge of Glory” on Howard Stern.

Listen to “White Christmas” — complete with an added verse, courtesy of Gaga — below: READ FULL STORY

Justin Bieber dons yellow zebra pants, shuffles on stage with LMFAO at the AMAs: Watch it here!

After a night of electro-fizzy, TRON-imitating, backing track-assisted performances, LMFAO appropriately closed the 2011 American Music Awards (Check out the winners!) with a thumping medley of “Party Rock Anthem” and “Sexy And I Know It.”

The afro’d duo provided all the typical pop tropes people have come to expect at an awards show like this. You know, giant robot heads, laser beams shooting from the ceiling, glittery bras, and an entire crowd of people wearing 3-D glasses — the stuff music is really about, at least according to the AMAs.

One thing most performance don’t have, though? A dancing cameo by pop culture’s favorite 5’3″ teen sensation: Justin Bieber.

Wearing a yellow pair of LMFAO’s trademark Zubaz pants, Bieber hopped into the middle of the rowdy dance circle and shuffled out a chorus to “Party Rock Anthem” while wearing a sleeveless black shirt with the word “SEXY” emblazoned across the chest. Check out the finale performance below (Bieber appears around the 2:45 mark): READ FULL STORY
