Rocksmith 2014 Edition, the sequel to the self-teaching guitar experience from 2011, is being released next Tuesday and it’ll be armed with 55 songs. Ubisoft released the entire tracklist ahead of the October 22nd launch today and Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC gamers will be treated to the likes of Aerosmith, Bob Dylan, Nirvana, Queen and The Police, among other top artists from the golden years of rock.
Ubisoft also announced that downloadable songs purchased for the first game will be compatible with Rocksmith 2014 Edition. There will also be the option to import the disc-based songs from the original Rocksmith to play in the new sequel, but there will be a nominal fee charged for the privilege.
Rocksmith 2014 Edition allows gamers to learn how to play a real guitar or bass guitar by plugging an instrument in to their gaming console. The game determines the skill level of the player and adjusts the difficulty of lessons accordingly. »

Are you outraged by the April 3 results show of ‘American Idol?’ I am. After Jimmy Iovine said Lazaro should go home, he ended up in the top three! Instead, Burnell Taylor was sent home. Do you agree with the results?
Judges Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey, Keith Urban and Randy Jackson were visibly shocked when Lazaro Arbos was pronounced safe in the April 4 results show. Not only that, he was in a top three spot, although it was not revealed which one! According to our Hl poll, 78 percent of you disagree with the results last night. Sadly, Burnell Taylor was sent home. Do you think it should have been Lazaro?
Mentor Jimmy Iovine was not a fan of Lazaro last night, and he really hasn’t been a fan since the beginning of the season. He was way harsh last night, saying Lazaro’s duet with Angie Miller was “cabaret. »

Tonight American Idol sets out to prove that Rock and Roll is here to stay! No slow ballads. Just up-tempo numbers to get us up and off our couches. Maybe.
Will the contestants rise to the challenge of faster tempos and harder beats? Let's find out now...
Burnell Taylor chose to start the night with the Bon Jovi anthem "You Give Love A Bad Name." He's a little uncomfortable making his way from the lower stage to the upper, but it's fantastic to see him take the mic off the stand and move a little more than just his hands. He played it close to the original and did a solid job even if he didn't do anything incredibly novel with the interpretation. He definitely stepped out of his comfort zone and seemed to have a good time. Keith said he looked uncomfortable in the song and gave him the »

It was rock and roll week on the April 3 episode of ‘American Idol.’ Some contestants rocked while others flopped. Read the full recap below.
The top 7 took on classic rock songs while judges Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey, Keith Urban and Randy Jackson listened intently. Plus, is a love connection forming between Burnell Taylor and Amber Holcolm?
The Top 7 Sing Rock & Roll
Burnell Taylor sang “Shot Through The Heart.” “I’ve never seen you look more uncomfortable up there,” Keith said. “Even outside your genre, stay Burnell because that’s what people are voting for,” Nicki said. Randy said he was behind the tempo.
Lazaro and Angie did a duet to “Crazy Little Thing Called Love.” Lazaro sort of forgot the words…again. “Overall, not bad,” Nicki said. “Angie you sounded really good. Lazaro, you got better as the song went on,” Randy said. “It wasn’t a great duet for me, »

I can’t get no satisfaction — not when it comes to American Idol‘s Season 12 theme nights, anyway.
