Sia's 'Santa's Coming for Us' Music Video Stars Kristen Bell, Dax Shepard & More -- Watch!
Happy holidays from Sia!

The 41-year-old singer surprised fans on Wednesday by releasing the music video for "Santa's Coming for Us," the new single from her first-ever holiday album, Everyday Is Christmas.

Directed by Marc Klasfeld, the video is jam-packed with celebrity talent, including real-life married couple Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard, Stranger Things star Caleb McLaughlin, It star Sophia Lillis and Curb Your Enthusiasm star Jb Smoove as Santa Claus. It also features Henry Winkler, Susan Lucci and Wyatt Oleff.

The video begins with Bell, clad in a candy cane-striped dress, lip syncing to Sia's first verse. She's later joined by Shepard, who's adorably dressed in a green sweater and bow tie. Together they trim the tree and host a festive holiday party for their friends and fam.

While the entire video is entertaining from beginning to end, we think it's safe to say the best part is at the 3:22 mark, when Bell and Shepard

Leona Lewis Records New, Dreamy Version of Christmas Song ‘One More Sleep’ -- Listen! (Exclusive)

Leona Lewis Records New, Dreamy Version of Christmas Song ‘One More Sleep’ -- Listen! (Exclusive)
Leona Lewis is bringing holiday cheer -- to your ears!

The British songstress is back with a new version of her original Christmas song, “One More Sleep,” as part of Amazon Music’s holiday playlist, “All Is Bright,” and Et has the exclusive premiere of the reworked song. Lewis originally recorded “One More Sleep” with a full band for her 2013 album, Christmas, With Love. The new version is stripped down and, according to Lewis, takes inspiration from the girl groups of yesteryear.

“Doing this version with Amazon was really interesting, because it went back to the original style of how we had it in the beginning,” Lewis says. “We stripped everything away and made it more like a ‘60s ballad-style. It has a bit of a Supremes feel to it, but it still has those Motown elements, because that is what it was originally inspired by.”

“I really think this version is very special, and I’m truly

When good TV goes bad: why X Factor lost its way with One Direction

Once, tales of ordinary folk achieving stardom enthralled the nation. But smooshing its contestants into reluctant boybands revealed its true cynicism

In 2004, when The X Factor started, the show’s premise was simple: find talented but overlooked people and help them realise their dream of pop stardom. The contestants were mentored by the people who’d nurtured the musical endeavours of Westlife, Ozzy Osbourne and, er, Zig and Zag – Louis Walsh, Sharon Osbourne and Simon Cowell respectively – and who would repeatedly tell them that the key was working hard and trying their best every week.

For a while it worked. Series three winner Leona Lewis became a genuine pop star. She had legit talent, making at least one banger (Bleeding Love), breaking the Us and becoming, briefly, a celeb that even your nan might recognise. Embarrassing as it is to think about now, the show was a national phenomenon: X Factor parties happened every weekend,

Ryan Tedder Talks Writing with Pop Royalty (Beyoncé Wears Uggs!) and Reveals the OneRepublic Hit That Surprised Him

Ryan Tedder Talks Writing with Pop Royalty (Beyoncé Wears Uggs!) and Reveals the OneRepublic Hit That Surprised Him
When it comes to producing and writing pop hits, Ryan Tedder has “All the Right Moves.”

In addition to fronting the internationally beloved pop-rock act OneRepublic, Tedder has crafted chart-toppers for modern music royalty, from Taylor Swift to mononymous powerhouses Adele and Beyoncé.

But the Oklahoma native, 37, admits some of his songs’ success has caught him off-guard. In 2006, OneRepublic released a stripped-down version of their tune “Apologize” on MySpace, and it became a hit online. But it didn’t break big until the following year, when they teamed up with producer Timbaland to released a synthy version of the track.
