Caleb Brauner is a breakout "SYTYCD" star in Memphis"So You Think You Can Dance" wrapped up its Season 10 auditions in Memphis this Tuesday, and in many ways, the show saved the best for last. From an adorkable nerd-boy to a couple fantastic dancers from Season 9 finalist Cyrus Spencer's magical Dragon House world (including Cyrus's ex!), the entire two-hour episode filled my eyes, heart, and DVR with happiness.Read More »from ‘SYTYCD’ Season 10 Final Auditions: Dancing in Memphis
Holly Tucker says goodbye to Blake SheltonUntil this Tuesday, "The Voice" Season 4 was looking like "Nashville Star," the talent show that once launched the career of Blake Shelton's wife, Miranda Lambert. Of the six contestants still left in the competition, four of them were country acts, and three of those acts belonged to Blake, the only coach to still maintain a totally intact team.
Until this Tuesday, that is.Read More »from ‘The Voice’ Top 6 Results: All Tucker’d Out
Last night, "The Voice" top six competed, and the episode seriously resembled a rerun of "Nashville Star."

Is Danielle Bradbery still the country girl to beat?"The Voice's" top six performance show this Monday was a mixed bag. A country bag. There was a country cover of a hair metal song. There were emo and R&B covers of country songs. There were a few old-school country songs, and some new-school country songs, too.
Really, aside from the Keane and Aretha covers, Monday's "Voice" episode pretty much resembled a rerun of the talent show Blake Shelton's wife Miranda Lambert once competed on, "Nashville Star."Read More »from ‘The Voice’ Top 6 Recap: Country Strong and Country Wrong
