My Pick for Top X Factor Contestant

Get used to hearing three words Carly Rose Sonenclar as she is one talented little girl.

I first want to put out the disclaimer that I am NOT a talent show competition fanatic.

Actually, I am not I don’t put the “fan” in fanatic at all as I do not like shows such as So You Think You Can Dance?, X Factor, The Sing-Off, or American Idol. I find them all repetitive and predictable. I do like something like Dancing With The Stars, because it adds that celebrity component. You get to see stars at their most vulnerable trying to take on a whole different art form.

But, I did catch one performance on X Factor recently that gave me the chills. Ever since her performance I have gotten roped into watching Britney, L.A., Demi, and Simon pick apart the singing styles of the American civilization.

Glenn Beck Signs $100 Million Radio Contract

Conservative radio show host Glenn Beck just signed a $100 million 5-year deal with syndicator Premiere Networks.

This is a nice pay raise for Beck who reportedly made $10 million with Clear Channel subsidiary in 2007. Behind The Rush Limbaugh Show and Sean Hanntiy Show, The Glenn Beck Program is America’s third highest rated radio show.

Things seem to be looking up for Beck, who left his show on the Fox News Channel last year due to declining ratings and a backlash after he claimed that President Barack Obama had “a deep-seated hatred for white people.” Over the past five years, unlike his show on Fox, Becks’s radio show is aired on over 400 stations and his audience has grown 50%.

Britain’s talk show sensation, Jeremy Kyle, is moving to the U.S of A!

He announced on The Wendy Williams Show today that his entire family, which includes his wife and three children, are moving to New York to live “The American Dream”.

His contentious daytime talk show, The Jeremy Kyle Show, is rated number one in the U.K. It debuted on ITV Daytime in 2005. The U.S. version of the show will debut in September 2011 on stations which are owned by FOX, Sinclair, CBS, Hearst, Cox, Newport, and CW Plus groups.

Kyle’s one hour show highlights families that are, for the lack of a better word, “dysfunctional”. His show has been said to be like Jerry Springer, English-style, but Kyle stated that “it is conflict, it is resolution, but we care about the resolution, so there’s aftercare”.
