YouTube viral video star—and legitimately talented singer—Nick Pitera has unleashed a musical medley of Disney hits that he calls his “One Man Disney Movie.”

Initially Internet-famous for his “A Whole New World” video—which shows him convincingly switching between the male and female vocal parts—Pitera returns the world of Disney covers after his more recent forays into Glee and Adele territory.

Only this time, he’s singing every part: princess, villain, hero, sidekick and even the town chorus. Watch it here: READ FULL STORY

Rebecca Black's 'Friday': The Internet's latest bizarre music video obsession

In this era of anonymous Internet ridicule, are we really the kind of culture that shares the music video of an aspiring teenage singer just to laugh at it? When the object in question is as bizarre as Rebecca Black’s “Friday,” the online community’s answer seems to be a resounding “YES.”

Coming from the L.A.-based Ark Music Factory (which is apparently pop music’s answer to Uwe Boll), Rebecca Black is the first teen singer to successfully marry the vocal stylings of Miley Cyrus and HAL 9000. While the video to Black’s debut single “Friday” had less than 4,000 views on Friday, in the last three days it’s racked up 2 million YouTube hits [UPDATE: It has soared past 5 million views as of Tuesday morning] and shows no signs of stopping. Watch it here:

Josh Groban, Pharrell, Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles and more star in Sara Bareilles' new ‘Uncharted’ video: watch here!

Sara Bareilles’ new video for “Uncharted” sounds like her, but looks like a whole lot of her famous friends mouthing the words, viral vid-style.

We counted more than 15 celebrity cameos in all, including Josh Groban, Pharrell Williams, Maroon 5′s Adam Levine, OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder, and indie twins Tegan and Sara.

Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles and YouTube lip-sync sensation Keenan Cahill bring the most personality, and Professor Ben Folds geekily schools us on the meaning of what it means to be “Uncharted.” You see some of Bareilles from the neck down throughout, but she gives us a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it appearance toward the end: READ FULL STORY

Katy Perry covers Rihanna, Jay-Z, Willow Smith: watch the video here

Put her on a candy-cane stool and Katy Perry can actually bring it pretty well live, haters.

Looking like a bridesmaid at Julia Goolia‘s wedding and singing like Sophie B. Hawkins with a Hova fetish, Perry tore into acoustic versions of friend (and birthday girl) Rihanna’s “Only Girl in the World,” Jay-Z’s “Big Pimpin’,” and Willow Smith’s “Whip My Hair” at a concert in Lisbon last night.

Bonus points for bedazzled-flute karaoke, delivered via velvet pillow: READ FULL STORY

Paul Rudd joins castmembers of 'SNL' and 'The Daily Show in cameo-crazy New Pornographers video 'Moves'

Behold, the Oceans 11 of indie rock and alt comedy: A video so stuffed with stars of stage, screen, and stand-up that it can hardly be contained by the mere parameters of YouTube—or, apparently, the confines of Paul Rudd’s third-trimester-preggo belly.

Watch below as Rudd, Kevin Corrigan, SNL‘s Bil Hader and Horatio Sanz, Community‘s Donald Glover, Daily Show-ers John Hodgman, Jon Oliver, and Wyatt Cenac, and many others (that’s a rough wig game, Ted Leo) gather for Canadian collective the New Pornographers‘ anthemic jangle “Moves”—a cocaine-pizza-fueled fable of show business “rise and rise”: READ FULL STORY

Gwyneth-Paltrow-Cee-Lo-GreenImage Credit: Jon Kopaloff/FilmMagic.com; Michael Buckner/WireImCee-Lo Green’s spiteful throwback “Forget You” (or “F**K You” for fans of the uncensored) was an internet sensation when it hit Youtube months ago. Then it got that much bigger when Fox’s cheery phenomenon, Glee, put their spin on it courtesy of actress Gwyneth Paltrow’s fun remix. The reception was so great that the two hit the studio recently to record the song as a duet. And though he doesn’t know exactly when, in an interview with Access Hollywood Cee-Lo promises we’ll get to hear it soon.

OK Go do it again: Watch their epic 'Back from Kathmandu" video

DIY video vanguards OK Go—coordinators of canines, Rubers of elaborate Goldbergs, artistes of old bread—have now taken their high-low concept the streets, literally, in a sort of massive, GPS-assisted human Etch-a-Sketch.

Watch as the band, with the assistance of Crayola-colored, instrument-outfitted friends, traces its own name in an 8.4-mile parade route through Los Angeles. OK? Go: READ FULL STORY

YouTube delights: Five singer-songwriters you should get to know

Before Justin Bieber was the Justin Bieber, he was just kidrauhl, a boy singing to his computer from home. Before Greyson Chance was Ellen’s personal popstar, he was just greyson97. Indeed, more aspiring young musicians are turning to YouTube these days in order to find audiences for their music. After all, why should you play cheesy covers at your high school’s unattended open mic night when you could play cheesy covers to an online audience that will actually listen?
