Hey, It's Time to Download Chance the Rapper, Donnie Trumpet, and The Social Experiment's Surf Project

3 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Chance the Rapper's Surf has finally arrived, in all its beautifully diverse-sounding and free-of-cost glory. As Chance told Billboard last year, the record is not so much his. It's actually the first official project of his Social Experiment band, and the spotlight is on the group's trumpet player, Donnie Trumpet. Of course that doesn't mean Chance isn't featured on it — he's all over it. (Actually, so is what seems like a majority of the hip-hop world and their mothers. The 16-track album showcases the likes of Busta Rhymes, Janelle Monáe, J. Cole, Big Sean, Quavo, and Erykah Badu, among others.) Chance's next solo work is reportedly still on the way, and so are more of these Social Experiment projects. Always something to look forward to with this guy. Anyway, for the meantime, you can download and enjoy the much-anticipated Surf gratis here, as well as stream it below: Also, »

13 May 2015 7:05 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

A good American Idol finale is kind of like the Fountain of Youth — and that’s not only a reference to 43-year-old Ricky Martin, 45-year-old J.Lo and 44-year-old Jordan Knight taking the stage and looking like they halted the aging process back in the late ’90s.

After 13 grueling weeks of voting — encompassing some 250 competitive performances and a pupu platter of “Wait! Noooo!” eliminations — it’d be easy for even the most committed Idoloonie to feel drained, dazed and depleted. »

Watch Amy Sedaris Nonsensically Serenade David Letterman

16 April 2015 7:08 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

David Letterman's six-week, star-studded march toward his farewell show kicked off this week with a handful of old friends and favorite guests (like Billy Crystal) dropping by The Late Show to say goodbye to the late night host. Wednesday night, comic actress Amy Sedaris, a self-proclaimed 34-time Late Show guest, bid adieu to Letterman by serenading him with a medley to "wrap up" how she feels about the departing host. "No offense," Letterman quipped. "But can you sing?"

"Listen, it's a very awkward time for you. It's a lot of attention. »

The Voice UK series 4 live blog: Quarter-finals as they happened

21 March 2015 11:45 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Hello, good evening and welcome to our first Voice UK live blog of 2015. In a neat twist of fate, we're going live at the same time as this year's hopefuls. How about that?

Based on previous series of the spinning-chair spectacular, don't expect any overly harsh judicial criticism from the coaching panel - but do expect the Top 12 contestants to take to the stage, plus performances from reigning Voice UK champion Jermain Jackman and the omnipresent Olly Murs.

Join us from 7.15pm tonight to find out how it all pans out. Maybe, if we're all really good, we'll even get a 'Yeah!' from the one and only Sir Tom Jones.

21:54Smooth-voiced series 3 champ Jermain Jackman is back in the house, sharply attired in Voice UK red. 'How Will I Know' is a solid enough first single - but I think it undersells his talent, which is a bit of a shame. »
