No surprises here!
As the year comes to a close, both Goddess Adele and Lady GaGa are dominating on the charts!!!!
In 2011, Adele's 21 was the best-selling album of the year AND she had the #1 single of the year (Rolling in the Deep), AND the #1 music video of the year (Live At the Royal Albert Hall)!!!!!
In all of Nielsen SoundScan history, NO OTHER ARTIST has topped all three of these year-end charts! Wowsa!!!!
As for GaGa, her new album Born This Way is set to become the #2 album of the year! Not only that, but

Another wonderful, GaGalicious performance from last night!
Check out the video (above) of Lady GaGa performing You and I with Sugarland at the 2011 Grammy Nominations Concert!!!!
This was fantastic and intense! We'd love to see these two perform again sometime!

Next week, Gleeks will finally see the New Directions and the Trouble Tones go head-to-head in a the well honored tradition of competition between the kiddies. While in past years, the boys have taken on the girls in musical battle, now that Shelby has a choir group of her own, things are going to a whole new level!
The songs of Mash-Up are led by the show's EPIC 300th performance, beautifully performed by Naya Rivera, Amber Riley and Heather Morris. Following her example are Matthew Morrison and Idina Menzel with a inneresting take on You and I by both Lady GaGa and Crystal Gayle (shout-out to the 80s!) and Mark Salling rocking out to Hot For Teacher. Hmm, wondering why!
Then, the New Directions round things out with two up-beat, throwback mash-ups: Hit Me With Your Best Shot/ One Way Or Another and I Can't Go For That/ You Make My Dreams Come True.
The clear winner of the week is the Adele performance. Hands down!
Check out all the songs and pick your fave after the jump!

Mylo Xyloto sold 447,000 copies in its debut week, and will claim the number one spot on the Billboard 200 chart!
Congrats Coldplay! That makes it the third best debut this year, right behind GaGa and Lil' Wayne!
But it's not like it's much of a surprise as this is their THIRD album to hit number one!
What is a surprise, though is that they've only had one #1 single before, and that was Viva La Vida off of the last album. But this one is no slouch, as Every Tear Drop his #14, which isn't bad at all!
Woo! Glad everything is going so well, guys!

Gleeks, let's face it: This season is kicking last season in the face, subsequently breaking its jaw and eliminating it from the competition. Though we've only gotten three episodes so far, we've felt so fulfilled by the quality of the music, the continuity of the storyline and the focus on some favorite characters. However, we've still got our fingers crossed that one of the show's original fab five will get some spotlight this season.
Jenna Ushkowitz who plays Tina is not to be overlooked, in our opinion. She sings a mean Cyndi Lauper ballad, can bust-a-move with Beyonce and can shed tears like a Daytime Emmy winner. (Also, she might be in Lady GaGa's new music video!!!!) When Tina does get a moment on the show, its always memorable (vampire Tina anyone?!), so we're hoping there will be more to her character this season. Unfortunately, with so much going on with the seniors, this junior might have to take a backseat for awhile to allow her costars the chance to get one last shining moment in. But how does she feel about that? Let's ask!
Here are some HIGHlights from Jenna's interview about the show and her character with Billboard Magazine:

Looks like things MAY have been blown out of proportion here…
Yesterday, we heard that things didn't go so smoothly at Madonna's W.E. premiere in London because she reportedly snubbed fans before the screening AND dissed GaGa, which pissed off Mother Monster fans.
Now, sources are telling PerezHilton.com exclusively that

Something to give thanks for on Turkey Day!
In case you missed it when the special aired on HBO or if you just can't wait for it to come out on DVD, which it will just a day following, Lady Gaga Presents the Monster Ball Tour: At Madison Square Garden will play in select theatres for one show only on Monday, Nov. 21st at 7 pm.
No, she's not going to play you like the Jonas Brothers, Hannah Montana or Glee with some 3D nonsense. No, its just Mother Monster in all her glory, playing all of her worldwide hits at a special concert event tape in her home of NYC. Tickets go on sale on Friday, Oct. 28th and you'll be able to see then if there is a showing close to you.
If you couldn't see her live, this will probably be the next best thing!
Ch-ch-check it out!
