This just in: Kelly Clarkson can SERIOUSLY sing.
The first-ever American Idol champion once again showed off her vocal chops today, this time with a rather important audience surrounding her at Barack Obama’s second Inauguration in Washington, D.C.
We elect her one of the best artists on the planet. Watch this rendition now for visual and audio proof:Kelly Clarkson “My Country Tis of Thee”
Yesterday, meanwhile, Katy Perry performed at the 2013 Kids’ Inaugural Concert. Compared to Clarkson, hers is a slightly more energetic, less harmonized show.

Chris Christie has become the first Republican to call out the NRA for its tactics against Barack Obama and those fighting for stricter gun control laws.
Earlier this week, an NRA ad hit the Internet that referred to Obama as an “elitist hypocrite” because his children attend a tightly-secured school.Chris Christie Slams NRA
“To talk about the president’s children, or any public officer’s children, who have – not by their own choice, but by requirement – to have protection, and to use that somehow to try to make a political point is reprehensible,” Christie said.
“The presidentMore >
NRA President David Keene said he is aggressively preparing for “battle” with the White House and Congress over President Obama’s gun control plan.
He also defended the new NRA ad calling Obama an “elitist hypocrite.”NRA Ad: Obama a Hypocrite
Keene criticized Obama’s announcement Wednesday, surrounded by four children from around the U.S., for “using kids to advance an ideological agenda.”
He expressed confidence that few measures would ultimately pass.
“It’s going to be very tough for the president to accomplish some of these things, but that doesn’t mean he can’t do it ifMore >
In advance of President Obama’s gun control plan, The National Rifle Association preemptively released a new video labeling him an “elitist hypocrite.”
Obama, the ad says, enjoys Secret Service protection of his two daughters at school, yet is “skeptical” about installing armed guards in all schools.NRA Ad: Obama a Hypocrite
The 35-second video is as harsh as any political campaign ad and illustrates how emotionally charged and personal the debate over gun control is.
The White House quickly blasted the NRA ad using Obama’s daughters to criticize the president on gun controlMore >
Last week, in the spirit of bipartisanship, Barack Obama invited his vanquished Republican rival Mitt Romney to the White House for lunch at the Oval Office.
Also known as the Man Cave.
The President has gradually transformeded the Oval into a far less stuffy place. Out are those archaic floral couches. In are the sporting goods and flat screens!
Michelle must not allow him to make decor choices anywhere else.
The room is the most important one in the nation … in terms of national security or just bro-ing out. It’s a place you’ve got to get in the right mindset beforeMore >
Glenn Beck, right-wing political pundit and artiste extraordinaire, placed a small figurine of President Barack Obama statue in a jar of urine on his Web show Tuesday.
He did so to make a point about artist Michael D’Antuono’s First Amendment right to hang a painting depicting Obama as Jesus Christ. Beck’s counter-statue:
“This guy has a right to do this,” he mused. “I think that it’s offensive. I don’t think it’s close to reality, but whatever floats your boat. I support his right to do exactly that.”
Beck then showed just how much he supports Americans’ freedom of expressionMore >
Katy Perry has been a fixture on the campaign trail, performing at President Barack Obama’s rallies … while wearing custom-made, skin-tight, form-fitting dresses.
Last night, she wore a blue one emblazoned with Obama’s “Forward” campaign slogan; last week, Perry’s white number became the hottest “ballot” of all time.
Which dress – by Abigail Greydanus, an L.A.-based designer – do you like better? Vote!

Listen up, white voters of America. Chris Rock is sending you a message.
Are you looking for a Presidential candidate that shares your values, hobbies and… well… skin color? If so, the name on your ballot this Tuesday should be obvious: Barack Obama!
The man was known as Barry for much of his life (“the third whitest name on Earth!”); he bowls; he dances with Ellen; he wears mom jeans.
And, unlike Mitt Romney, his family doesn’t have more members in it than a Tyler Perry movie. Watch this hilarious endorsement now:Chris Rock: Vote for “White” Barack Obama!

The deadline for Barack Obama to reveal his college transcripts and receive $5 million from Donald Trump has passed.
But a new offer is on the table.
On a Fox affiliate in Dallas last night, Mavericks owner Mark Cuban referred to Trump’s gesture as “one of the dumbest things ever” and then made his very own pitch to The Donald:
Shave your head and a charity of your choice will receive $1 million:Mark Cuban Makes Offer to Donald Trump
Trump never did respond to Stephen Colbert offering the same amount for a ball dip, so we doubt he’ll acknowledge Cuban in this case.
No more Mr. Nice Jay?
On last night’s edition of The Tonight Show, the host went especially hard after President Barack Obama on two issues:
His handling of the mess in Libya, where four Americans were killed and emails showed the White House was made aware of details it failed to quickly make public.
“Well, ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ is back,” Leno cracked. “Not for gays in the military. It’s President Obama’s new policy for questions about Libya. Don’t ask, don’t tell.”

Yup. It turns out Donald Trump actually can get worse.
In the wake of Superstorm Sandy slamming New York City, the real estate mogul has taken to Twitter. To wish his fellow Big Apple residents well? Of course not.

“Because of the hurricane, I am extending my 5 million dollar offer for President Obama’s favorite charity until 12PM on Thursday,” Trump wrote today.

The latest trailer for American Idol Season 12 serves as both a science lesson and piece of trash talk.
It opens by stating there are 7 billion people in the world… yet there’s only one Keith Urban, and Randy Jackson, and Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey.
It then closes with Ryan Seacrest reminding viewers that Idol “started it all,” a clear reference to new competitors The Voice and The X Factor.
