"The X Factor" might get less fanfare than its older sibling, "American Idol," but the final four acts remaining in Season 3 are worthy of as many accolades as the superstars on any other reality singing competition. It was a hard competition, but finally we narrowed down the semifinalists: groups Restless Road and Alex and Sierra, over 25-er Jeff Gutt, and boy Carlito Olivero, to the three finalists competing for the Season 3 title. Who made it?
The episode began with a delightfully chaste group number of Kelly Clarkson's "Stronger," and was followed by an extensive package recapping the Top 4 performance night. This essentially proved the uselessness of results shows, and the fact that it takes an hour to eliminate one act is kind of insane.
Mario Lopez then rapidly asked each act a question, providing ample opportunity for Miss America-style answers: we love everyone, everybody deserves to be here, I »

Kelly Clarkson singing songs from The Sound of Music is definitely one of our favorite things. But does she do it better than Carrie Underwood? The American Idol veterans are going head-to-head with two takes on the classic track "My Favorite Things." Yep, it's Kelly vs. Carrie and this battle is way better than cream-colored ponies. Viewers will recall Underwood sang the song with Private Practice star Audra McDonald during NBC's The Sound of Music Live! on Dec. 5. Clarkson recently had her own NBC Christmas special, Kelly Clarkson's Cautionary Christmas Tale, and her holiday album, Wrapped In Red, features her upbeat take the song. Kelly Clarkson's »
It’s a sing-off! This holiday season, ‘The Sound of Music’ fans have two versions of ‘My Favorite Things’ to choose from — and both come from former ‘American Idol’ winners! Kelly Clarkson performed the song during her Dec. 11 ‘Cautionary Christmas Music Tale’ mere days after Carrie Underwood belted it out when she played Maria in NBC’s ‘Sound Of Music’ live special. So, who sang it better? Check out both versions below, and let us know what You think!
Someone call Simon Cowell, because only the former American Idol judge who helped launch both Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood‘s careers can really choose who sang “My Favorite Things” better. Carrie took on the iconic song for NBC’s live televised broadcast of The Sound of Music, then Kelly performed it days later during her NBC special, Cautionary Christmas Music Tale. It’s a tough call!

Damn it, Blake Shelton – why did you have to be so awesomely offensive in your Christmas special last year? Thanks to your side-splitting Claymation spoof with Larry the Cable Guy, in which you shot Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and incinerated Sam the Snowman, NBC must've been scared off. In your place, Kelly Clarkson gave us a boring, misguided and uneven hour of television that served as little more than a commercial for her new holiday album, Wrapped in Red. Look, I get that the Peacock network is on a singing-contest-winner »

We've been waiting a lifetime for a moment like this: "Nashville" just booked Kelly Clarkson as a guest star, y'all.
The first ever "American Idol" winner and singing powerhouse will appear on the ABC southern series in Episode 11 (which will air in January), TVLine reports.
"As you recall, one of the most popular songs of last season is a song that Gunnar and Scarlett wrote -- 'Fade Into You,'" showrunner Dee Johnson says. "And in fact, in real life, [Clarkson is] actually cutting that song."
How excited are you to see Clarkson take "Nashville" by storm? Think any of our main divas -- Juliette, Rayna, Scarlett, or Layla -- have something to worry about?
"Nashville" airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. Et on ABC. »
As part of her "Cautionary Christmas Music Tale," Kelly Clarkson performed "My Favorite Things" from "The Sound of Music" -- just a week after her "American Idol" compatriot Carrie Underwood performed it during "The Sound of Music Live!" So, which one do you like better?
The videos are below. We have to say, we love Kelly's arrangement. It's a terrific jazzy, big band version. However, say what you will about Carrie's acting, but she and Audra McDonald were great on the vocals for the piece -- even if we do like the song better when sung with the children like it is in the movie (the Mother Abbess scene is from the stage musical).
If you liked Clarkson, be sure to check out her new album, "Wrapped in Red." It has "Favorite Things" and a plethora of other great holiday classics. And look for "Sound of Music Live" to rerun this Saturday, »
Layla Grant, prepare to be upstaged.
American Idol champ-turned-Grammy winner Kelly Clarkson, who won raves for her stint on CBS’ The Crazy Ones earlier this season, is set to guest-star in an episode of Nashville, TVLine has learned exclusively.

The other night, I was flicking through my On-Demand, looking for a cool show to watch, and I noticed something. Something I may have noticed a long time ago but just not spoken of yet.

Full episodes of Fox primetime shows including “The Simpsons,” “New Girl” and “Almost Human” are now playing on Microsoft’s new Xbox One — but only to customers of participating cable, satellite and telco TV partners.
The broadcaster’s Fox Now streaming service has launched for Xbox Live Gold members in the U.S. on Xbox One. Fox debuted on the older Xbox 360 in September 2012. The service offers day-after-air access to shows and other content to video subscribers of Comcast, Dish Network, At&T U-Verse, Cablevision, Verizon FiOS and several smaller operators.
In the near future, according to Fox, users of both Xbox One and Xbox 360 apps for Fox Now will have access to synchronized content for several series via Xbox SmartGlass, which serves up additional material based on what’s playing on TV on a tablet or smartphone. Microsoft said Wednesday it has sold 2 million Xbox One consoles since they went on sale Nov. »

Adam Lambert may be loving his gig as Starchild on Glee, but that doesn't mean he's looking to become a series regular. "I'm having a good time popping in here and there because I have a lot of other stuff in the mix right now," the former American Idol contestant told me at TrevorLive at the Hollywood Palladium. How many episodes he'll appear in is "all up in the air," Lambert said. Lea Michele tweeted last week that she and Lambert have a duet coming up when Glee returns in February. "Back to #Glee today," she wrote. "Dance rehearsal w/ the amazing @adamlambert! Getting to sing one of my all time favourite female rock songs with him!" Lambert said »
Who says there’s no life after The Voice?
Season 5′s Top 5 results telecast felt like an aggressive response to the blogosphere complaint that NBC’s reality-singing behemoth has yet to produce a viable chart-topper — this week’s Top 10 iTunes milestones for covers by three current semifinalists notwithstanding. (Cue Xtina rageface, followed by an indignant, “Excuse me, but I’m No. 10 on Billboard right this very second, bitches!” No, girl, we’re talking about contestants, not coaches.)
