Kris Allen is slated release his sophomore studio album 'Thank You Camellia' on May 22nd, and 90-second previews of the project's tracks have been issued.

Based on the short snippets, the set sounds like its going to be a personal best for Allen. With that said, I have to admit some of the live renditions sound better than the edits that will appear on the disc. Preview 'Thank You Camellia' below:

Pop singer Katy Perry pulled out all the stops for her army-themed performance on 'American Idol', where she performed her chart-topping song "Part of Me".

Unfortunately, nothing can disguise the fact that Perry simply can't sing this song live. She's had numerous opportunities (Kids' Choice and Echo Awards) and has faltered (vocally) on every single performance, and this outing was no exception.

Directed by Anthony Mandler, it seems like the sole purpose of the clip was to showcase Minaj's figure and while we know sex sells, the visual should still have some relation to the song that it's accompanying. Watch the new video beneath:

REVIEW: CARRIE UNDERWOOD - 'BLOWN AWAY'

4/26/2012 3
Blown Away (Album Cover), Carrie Underwood

It has been almost two and a half years since Carrie Underwood put out ‘Play On’, and despite the album amassing three chart-topping singles and eventually going double platinum, it still ranks as the least successful of her three releases.

Still, her resume speaks for itself and throughout her first three projects (‘Some Hearts’, ‘Carnival Ride’ and the previously-mentioned set ‘Play On’), we have watched in awe as Underwood has amazed us with her biggest asset:  her voice.

Her fourth studio album ‘Blown Away’, available on May 1, continues this trend.

NEW MUSIC: USHER - 'SCREAM'

Scream (Single Cover), Usher

On the heels of his stunning release "Climax", which reached the summit of the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, Usher relives his infatuation with dance music on "Scream", one of the new singles off his album 'Looking For Myself'.

Many are going to complain about him returning to dance music, but the balance that he has struck between the urban and pop worlds is brilliant, and "Scream", which is a solid release, shouldn't be ousted because its not an R&B record. The real problem is the song is simply a step back from the brilliance that preceded it.

Looking dapper as usual, President Barack Obama graces the latest cover of Rolling Stone, where he dishes on his reelection campaign, Mitt Romney and why his role as President impacts to black and white children across the country.

"That's hugely important," the commander-in-chief says. "But you shouldn't also underestimate the fact that there are a whole bunch of little white girls and white boys across the country who take it for granted that there is a  African American [leader. I'm] the president they're growing up with, and that's changing attitudes."

This morning (April 25th), Ashanti made a stop by 'Live! with Kelly', to perform her single "The Woman You Love", from her upcoming project, 'Brave Heart'.

While this is her strongest performance of the song thus far, I still think the single has pretty much done all it is going to do and that Ms. Douglas needs to issue a new single. As the old-saying goes, the faster, the better.  Watch her sing below:
