Demi Lovato slays once again!

The Confident songstress has a habit of stealing the show while giving a tribute performance to a music legend; during this year's Grammy awards, the pop star honored Lionel Richie with some top notch vocals performing Hello!

President Barack Obama must have watched that performance, because Demz was invited to to honor Ray Charles on Wednesday at the final White House "In Performance" event of his presidency!

Video: Demi Travels Through A Winter Wonderland In Her Stone Cold Music Video!

The night was full of AH-Mazing performances from Jussie Smollet, Alabama Shakes' frontwoman Brittany Howard, and Usher — who closed out the evening with a crowd-pleasing performance of Georgia On My Mind!

But it was Demi who brought down the house with a brassy performance of You Don't Know Me — and got the crowd to swaying to her soulful vocals!

Ch-ch-check out the show-stealing performance (below)!

Kanye West SUED! Did He Mine For Music That Wasn't His On 2005's Gold Digger?

kanye west golddigger

As if his lady love Kim Kardashian isn't dealing with ENOUGH legal drama right now!

It appears Kanye West is now facing his very own, multimillion-dollar lawsuit…for infringement on his 2005 smash hit, Gold Digger!

YEAH! Feels a little late in the game to be throwing this one at him NOW, right?

Perhaps! But allow us to explain:

So while the track, off of Yeezy's album Late Registration, mainly samples Ray Charles' I Got A Woman, it also allegedly borrows David Pryor's "get down" chant from his 1974 track with Thunder & Lightning, Bumpin' Bus Stop…at least 50 TIMES!

However, the musician was incredibly sick back in 2005, and passed away in 2006, never realizing where his voice had ended up!

Duets: Jennifer Nettles INSPIRITS With Georgia On My Mind & God Bless The Child!

Filed under: Music MinuteDuets

Don't tell John or Kelly, but it looks like Jennifer Nettles might just take the Season 1 trophy on Duets!

With four contestants remaining, the Sugarland songstress is the only mentor left with both of her little grasshoppahs!

As we discussed yesterday, Robin Thicke lost his last mentee (though we're pretty sure producers will keep him on with special guest performances… if they're smart).

So now with only four remaining, half of the show belongs to JenJen! And she's not losing steam!

…but this week, she was just rocking steady. In this week's episode,
