After a five year hiatus from the business, the country superstar returned to the stage last night at the Country Music Association Awards, and performed a STUNNING cover of the OneRepublic single Come Home!
Ch-ch-check it out (above)!
Looking and sounding more beautiful than ever, gurl!
Now let's hear what you've been working on during your time away!
Damn! They are seriously pulling out all the stops for this finale!
It has already been announced that Miranda Lambert will be performing with Dia Frampton, one of the finalists on The Voice, tomorrow during the finale, and now, we've learned that the others will be joined by none other than Stevie Nicks, Pat Monahan, and Ryan Tedder!
Finalist Javier Colon will perform with Nicks, while the Train frontman will perform with Vicci Martinez, and the OneRepublic singer/writer will join Beverly McClellan!
We can't wait to hear what they all have in store!
This is gonna be a close one!
What do U think?? Who are U most excited to see perform??
A lesson that unfortunately has to be learned sometimes!
After Andy Cohen made some less-than-stellar remarks about The PS 22 Chorus and their appearance at the Academy Awards, he rightfully apologized, and choral director Gregg Brienberg smartly used the controversy as a way to teach the kids that sometimes, adults say and do things without thinking just as often as children, and it's important to recognize when you're wrong and admit to it!
Check out the video the group made for Andy, and their performance of Apologize by OneRepublic (above)!
Breinberg also included the following message:
The PS22 Chorus responds to the criticism and the apology from Andy Cohen regarding the kids' Oscars performance. Classy and articulate kids expressing themselves honestly. And Andy, we kid, it's never too late to apologize, and we truly appreciate it, but next time take a lesson from the kids…..
All in good fun!
And the great song is Apologize by One Republic, and it was cool trying 3 part harmony.
What thoughtful comments!
And we're glad that they all openly expressed their feelings about the situation, whether they accept his apology or not!
It's so important to recognize how you're feeling and to be honest with yourself!
Hopefully now they can all put what happened behind them and focus on what's most important: the music!
Knowing how talented, HIGHlarious, and genuinely lovely she is, it's no surprise that she's found so many equally gifted people with whom to collaborate!
Adele recently opened up about her INSPIRED sophomore album, 21, and explained that she came to work with OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder on the gorgeous track Turning Tables after the two had an awkward encounter in an elevator after the 2009 Grammy Awards!
"The Grammys in 2009—we were both staying in the same hotel. I got in the elevator with about a hundred heart balloons. Then Ryan got in as well and all he could hear is my cackle, which I think has become a bit infamous. And he was kind of searching through the balloons to find me, and we were like, ‘Amazing. We’ve definitely got to work together now.'"
Which made us recall something Tedder said a little over a year ago:
“I’m working with Adele right now, who’s inspiring me like crazy. I hadn’t written a song in about a month, literally, until yesterday. The less I write, the better the songs are.”
So cool - especially now since we've been able to listen to the album in its entirety, and can certainly agree that the track is RIDICULOUSLY good!
We certainly hope you two can collaborate again soon! You two are a musical match made in heaven!
