Stefano Langone was voted off American Idol this week, but he says he’s proud of how far he got and looking forward to what’s next in his career.
In fact, he says he purposely held back on Idol because he wanted to save some of his patented special “swag” for fans to hear on his debut album.
“It’s hard to really show your chops on the show,” he said. “One thing I wanted to keep to myself was my original music and my piano playing. It’s something I want to bring out and really show the world, and I think it will be very, very special.”

[HMG Celebrity News] – The world of heavy metal is rich with unique characters and Van Halen front-man, Sammy Hagar is certainly among them. In his new book, ‘Red: My Uncensored Life in Rock’ Sam tells some amazing stories of back-stage life, but most striking among them is the tale of being abducted by aliens.
Within the slender 256 pages are the usual tales of drugs and wild sexual exploits, but it also outlines Sam’s long-standing interest in UFO’s and the more mystical areas of life. He’s a fan of psychics and numerology, and MTV recently asked why this was never really clear in hisMore >

If you asked people to predict the 2011 Grammy Awards winners going in, jazz bassist Esperanza Spalding, 26, probably wouldn’t have been on many lists.
Nevertheless, she took home the coveted Best New Artist Grammy, upsetting the likes of Drake, Florence and the Machine AND Justin Bieber to do so.
While people may spend the wake of Justin Bieber’s surprising Best New Artist loss figuring out who Spalding is and where she came from, her talent is no mystery.
