Call 'Glee,' maybe: See the gang do Carly Rae

When Glee‘s third season finale aired in May, Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” was plenty popular — but it hadn’t yet taken over the world. That all changed this summer, when the Canadian import’s hit single became the season’s inescapable anthem. Unfortunately, Fox’s musical series would have to wait until its return to put its own spin on the ubiquitous song. And, happily, the wait is now over.

The network recently posted the Glee gangs full performance of “Call Me Maybe,” a fairly stripped-down affair that takes place in McKinley High’s auditorium. Why is Artie the only person in the audience, thoughtfully watching Brittany, Blaine, Tina, and New Directions newcomer Wade (Glee Project runner-up Alex Newell) perform this infectious song? Where did that full string orchestra come from? How many girls will faint when they hear Darren Criss croon that he’d “trade [his] soul for a wish, pennies and dimes for a kiss”? We’ll have to wait for the premiere to find out; in the meantime, here’s the clip.

Backstage at 'The Voice,' the coaches snipe, snark, flirt, and reminisce -- EXCLUSIVE CLIP

Reunited, and it feels so good!

On the first day of Season 3’s Blind Auditions, The Voice coaches Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green, Blake Shelton, and Christina Aguilera gathered backstage to discuss the season ahead. Social media correspondent Christina Milian got the ball rolling by asking the coaches to name who they see as their biggest competition — which led to Aguilera calling Levine “a sensitive, tender lover,” then imitating Shelton’s big-hearted Santa laugh, then giggling as Levine quoted a famously profane moment from Half Baked (NSFW).

Watch their chummy camaraderie below — before the claws come out on tonight’s episode:

Gleeks have to wait another eight days to see Glee‘s season 4 premiere, but Wednesday fans were treated to a taste of the music that the New Directions will be serenading us with this year.

Justin Bieber has just completed vocals on his latest project: A guest spot on The Simpsons. The 18-year-old singer, who wasn’t born when the animated Fox comedy launched, tweeted this afternoon: “just did a voice over for the SIMPSONS!!! #swaggy.” Though the tweet appears to have since been deleted, Simpsons exec producer Al Jean confirms to EW that Bieber will indeed play himself in an upcoming episode.

Source: Nicki Minaj is in deep talks to join 'American Idol'

After a couple of canceled performances and a new Us Weekly report, speculation that Nicki Minaj will help to judge American Idol‘s 12th season is at a fever pitch. And while nothing is final yet, sources have told EW that the Pink Friday rapper is in deep talks to join Fox’s reality juggernaut — though, again, no deal has been made.

Pop diva Mariah Carey signed on to become an Idol judge this summer, shortly after Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler and multihyphenate Jennifer Lopez left the show. Singer Nick Jonas revealed a few weeks ago that he is also “being considered” for a seat on the panel. (Sorry, Snoop.)

New 'Glee' promo: See Kate Hudson's nasty dance teacher in action

This September, school is back in session — even though the class of 2012 has moved on. (Well, mostly.)

Fox just released a new trailer for Glee‘s fourth season — and while it’s only a scant 31 seconds long, it holds plenty of hints for what’s in store for McKinley’s finest. A newly transported Rachel is doing her best to succeed at NYADA, despite snide comments from mean dance teacher Cassandra July (Kate Hudson); Sue has apparently given birth, or is at least holding someone else’s baby; and Brittany is being Brittany, mistaking a New Directions member for… well, we won’t ruin the joke.

'Strike Back' trailer features all-new Bob Dylan song

Folk legend Bob Dylan and Cinemax’s hard-charging series Strike Back may not seem like a natural pair — but as a new music video proves, these two could actually be a match made in testosterone-soaked heaven. The clip showcases footage of Strike Back‘s upcoming second season and features Dylan’s “Early Roman Kings,” a bluesy tune that will appear on the singer-songwriter’s forthcoming album Tempest. The song is a surprisingly good fit for footage of the action holy trinity: explosions, combat, and pretty ladies holding guns.

But don’t take our word for it; see the video for yourself below. And if it’s got you hankering for more new Dylan, don’t fret: The artist’s song “Scarlet Town” will debut with Strike Back as well, playing over the end credits of the series’ Aug. 17 season premiere.
