Usher has climbed the mountain of success many times over with his R&B stylings. Now he plans to go in a new Pop direction with a new album. Is he staying true to himself and simply growing as an artist, or is he abandoning his style to be just another Pop copy-cat trying to stay relevant?

“Glee” actress and 18-year-old Filipina pop star Charice has one extra-special talent: impersonating Beyoncé. “Halo” is one of her signature covers, but she got a ton of attention for performing B’s “Dreamgirls” epic “Listen” on her debut episode of “Glee” earlier this season.
While Charice’s “Listen” is technically near-perfect, someone else from the Philippines is grabbing the spotlight today with another version of the tune. A young man auditioning for the country’s version of “Idol” did such a shockingly accurate replication of the song, he had spectators baffled. He even added a bit of theatricality we’re sure Beyoncé herself would enjoy, dropping to the floor and singing on his back from the 1:35 mark to the song’s dramatic conclusion. Technically, he hit a few clunkers, but he still fared better than most of the singers who took the stage at the American Music Awards.
Check out Charice’s version of “Listen” and Sasha Fierce‘s original:

Russell Brand’s face is really saying it all as he stands next to his wife, Katy Perry at an American Music Awards after party. He is not digging the paparazzi. It’s interesting as last year when they first started dating, he looked like he did not like the attention. A year later, he is still not used to it, it seems.
