My Friday Five: On 'Idol' Reboot News, Texting At The Movies & New Music

1. Idol Reboot News

Katy Perry is officially IN as a judge on ABC's American Idol reboot. There was quite a bit of speculation in recent days before the network made it official at its annual Upfront presentation. Perry is no stranger to the show, having been a guest judge during Season Nine. I personally like the pick as I know Perry is extremely talented and I'm sure she has the ability to discover new talent. We'll see how it goes!

My Friday Five: On A Big Mistake By CMT, The Return Of 'Idol' & A Twitter Record

1. Bad Move, CMT

I don't watch CMT that often. However, a new show premiered on the network that got me pretty interested. The show is Sun Records and it's based on the famous "Million Dollar Quartet" story of Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash who just happened to meet up at the Sun Records Studio and recorded together.

NMM: Kuizz & Daniel Matthias

I'm always up to discover new music for my readers to listen to. Last week, I received an email from an artist named Daniel Matthias requesting me to feature a tune he created in collaboration with fellow artist, Kuizz Shah. Let me be honest for a second. This is the first time I've received a special request to feature a song. I normally choose new music that I've found by looking through iTunes, etc. The email came as a bit of a surprise but I was pretty darn honored to be asked to do a feature. That means other people are seeing my work on this blog and it truly does mean a lot. I hope my words, here, will do the song justice.
