John Legend always makes fans swoon, but with his latest album Love In The Future, he proves he’s just as romantic in real life as he is in his music. The album was inspired by his relationship with his supermodel wife, Chrissy Teigen, who joined him in a very intimate video for “All Of Me.”
Last week, we laid out the case as to why Cassadee Pope might just be the next big country music star to emerge from the reality singing competition factory.

The list of successful musical acts whose careers have been launched on televised singing competitions can be counted on two hands. The U.S. version of American Idol has been most successful so far, producing bona fide stars like Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Phillip Phillips, and Daughtry, and the U.K.’s version of X-Factor is of course responsible for unleashing the reigning world champion of boy bands, One Direction. The other singing competitions here Stateside have had less success up to this point, but the recent champion of The Voice, Cassadee Pope, looks well positioned to be the first breakout star from that program.

Basically, Psy was everywhere.

If you’re not already obsessed with May You Oughta Know artist, Gin Wigmore, it’s time to crawl out from under that rock because this 26 year-old, tattooed New Zealand native is taking the United States by storm.
