Oh, how the mighty have fallen!

Last time we checked in with Sanjaya Malakar, the American Idol talent was debuting in a delightful off-Broadway musical!

Hold on to your hairpieces because, if you thought that role was off-Broadway, his new gig will blow your mind!

These days, the former Idol finalist sings oldies in NYC subway stations for spare change! And he cut his hair, too!

Florence & The Machine Go Naked!

Naked … meaning sans all production equipment!!

For MTV's Unplugged, Florence and the Machine performed stripped down versions of their own songs and relayed beautiful renditions of classics such as Johnny Cash's Jackson and the above take on the Otis Redding re-imagining of Try A Little Tenderness.

Her voice is undeniably haunting, and it's a lovely homage to Otis, but her range does seem a tad limited at times…

Well, as long as Kanye likes, it right!? (He's in the front row!!)

Check out Florence's tender Tenderness (above) and watch the rest of her Unplugged performances…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Filed under: Music MinuteKanye WestJay Z

This is so, SO rad!

The news has been pretty slow and steady regarding Kanye West and Jay-Z's collaborative album, Watch The Throne, was announced back in January, alongside what was assumed to be its lead single, H*A*M, but now, a new track has appeared on-line, and we think it's safe to say that it's more than just a little AMAZING!

Check out Otis, which samples Try A Little Tenderness by Otis Redding (above)!

And if you want more where that came from, then worry not! We've just gotten word that the album will be digitally released on August 1st, with physical copies available on August 5th!

Hell to the YES!

What do U think?? Are U feeling Otis??
