5 Best Capital FM Instaoke Attempts!

Have you ever heard of Instaoke? Instaoke is basically: Instant Karaoke.

Capital FM is slowly becoming famous for their Instaoke segment where Capital FM's very own DJ Max selects a few songs for celebrities to attempt their own versions or try to impersonate the original singers on the spot.

The intensity and entertainment level of this segment is really off the charts as the reactions of these musicians are priceless when taken off guard on the songs they are about to sing. Their attempts are often hilarious and/ or ridiculously good.

So we have chosen 5 of our favourite Instaoke attempts for your enjoyment!

 

1. Meghan Trainor

Meghan Trainor definitely brought her MTRAIN style to the tracks of One Direction, 5 Seconds of Summer and Nicki Minaj.

 
 

2. Jessie J

Jessie J rapping Price Tag in an American accent could possibly be one of the greatest things that happened in music history.

 
 

3. Olly Murs

Olly Murs really got into character. And might we just add that he can really rap! Probably a rap album by Olly coming soon?

 
 

4. Charli XCX

It felt like Charli XCX swallowed Britney Spears as her impersonation of the queen of pop was spot on!

 

5. Tori Kelly

Tori Kelly could possibly be the next queen of Instaoke. Just take a listen to how effortlessly she belted out those songs and sounded so flawless.

 

Did we miss out any of your favourite Instaoke attempts? And more importantly, who would you like to see have a go at a round of Instaoke?

SAY WHAT! The Vamps have just announced that they will be coming to Asia for their Wake Up World Tour and Singapore is one of their destinations! This definitely calls for a celebration jump!

The Vamps coming to Singapore not only means good LIVE music but the following will be available for our own viewing pleasure in actual reality and not through a virtual screen!!!

Touring on the road may be tough, that's why musicians tend to bring along some of their family members and friends to make the experience more enjoyable as they have people to share this amazing journey with.

That's why we have chosen 5 singers/bands that The Vamps should bring along with them on their world tour! (These choices are more for our own selfish interests rather than to actually keep the band company, but it works both ways!)

 

1. Shawn Mendes

Shawn Mendes and The Vamps have been on tour together before and wouldn't it be great if we were treated to a live performance of their song, Oh Cecilia?

 
 

2. Demi Lovato

This was probably the song we were jamming to for the whole of last year. I'm sure Demi wouldn't mind making her third visit to this sunny island!

 
 

3. Fifth Harmony

Yes, we're aware that there's some kind of tension present between these two bands over the whole Brauren breakup situation. But wouldn't it be nice if they were to put everything behind them by uniting once again on stage?

 
 

4. R5

Aww! These two bands go a long way back from chubby bunny challenges and old song covers. We hope that this long-time friendship between the bands will be displayed through music on stage sometime soon.

 
 

5. Cimorelli

Although this collaboration did not comprise of the all the Cimorelli sisters or all of members of The Vamps, we are giving them a second chance to attain full attendance on stage.

 
 

Thinking about it again, it would probably be a very crowded tour bus if The Vamps were to bring along so many people on tour. But there's such a thing as multiple tour buses right?

The wait is finally over! Little Mix's Get Weird album track list has finally been revealed and we could not be happier!

Mixers have waited a very long time for the girls' third studio album and the reveal of the song titles called for a celebration as it meant that we are one step closer to getting our hands on the full album. 

Knowing that Mixers get excited very easily, we have decided to feed their (and our own) curiousity by predicting how every single song on the album will 'sound' like if they were gifs. 

 

1. Black Magic

Come on, this first single off the album has been on repeat on all our playlists since its release!

 

2. Love Me Like You

#LittleMixSingle2 is coming our way so soon, so here's its official single art work!

 

3. Weird People

Weird People = Little Mix

 

4. Secret Love Song

Ooooh, a secret love song! Hopefully, this song won't be kept a secret for long.

 

5. Hair

If you haven't already heard this amazing song, check it out on Spotify or iTunes!

 

6. Grown

We kind of think that this song might be related to one of their previous songs, Little Me.

 

7. I Love You

Aww!

 

8. OMG

Oh my goodness, what could this song possibly be about?!

 

9. Lightning

They are our lightning!

 

10. A.D.I.D.A.S.

Did Adidas sponsor the making of this song? What's next? N.I.K.E.?

 

11. Love Me Or Leave Me

Make a choice.

 

12. The End

Good bye because this is the end.

 

13. I Won't

What won't Little Mix do?

 

14. Secret Love Song Pt.II

This is so exciting! A part 2 to a song!

 

15. Clued Up

Mysterious.

 

16. The Beginning

We know that this is just the beginning for Little Mix and we can't wait for what's to come!

In the meantime, let's feed our eyes on, Black Magic, the only full visual representation of a song that we have in the form of a music video!

It has been reported that Justin Bieber's latest single, What Do You Mean?, has become the most streamed track on Spotify with 21 million streams in only 5 days!

Not only are the Beliebers who have stuck around for this long proud of Justin for putting out such an amazing comeback single, but YouTube is clearly celebrating along with them.

Many YouTubers have since been riding on the success of the single and releasing their own versions of the track on the video sharing site.

Although there are many great reditions of the song, we have only picked our favourite five. Enjoy!

 

1. Kina Grannis & Kurt Hugo Schneider

This amazing collaboration between Kina and Kurt has left us all speechless. Kurt has seriously surprised us all again by geniously using everyday items as instruments to his looping track. SAY WHAT!

 
 

2. Cimorelli

It's such a lovely sight to see 6 sisters who really love music sitting in a corner on the floor, effortlessly belting out some of the most perfect harmonies ever.

 
 

3. Tyler Ward

What more do you expect from this sweet heart? His soothing vocals on the electric guitar says it all.

 
 

4. Kyson Facer

This up and coming YouTuber has definitely shown us that he has what it takes to make it in the music industry!

 
 

5. Ed Sheeran

I know Ed Sheeran isn't a YouTuber, but how can we not add him into our list of favourite What Do You Mean? covers even though it's only 12 seconds long?

 
 

We hope you have enjoyed these song covers and if we missed out any of your favourites, please do let us know in the comments below!

What do you mean you haven't even heard the original version of the song by Justin Bieber?

Taylor Swift's highly anticipated music video for her fifth single off 1989, Wildest Dreams, has finally hit our screens on 30 August! 

The talented singer-songwriter has never disappointed us with the various visually appealing music videos she has released throughout her many years in the music business and this is no exception.

However, after watching the highly captivating love story between the characters of Tswizzle and Scott Eastwood, it seemed all too familiar. 

Let us break it down for you.

 

Wildest Dreams x Begin Again

Spinning around in a flowy dress, looking all pretty. Yes, TayTay has done this before in her Begin Again music video. Only this time, it's in the middle of the desert and not on the edge of a tall building where she could potentially fall off from!

 

Wildest Dreams x Style

A kissing scene followed by lightning to signify the chemistry between two lovers. Well, I guess this kind of chessy scenes will never go out of Style.

 

Wildest Dreams x Blank Space

Okay, going crazy and exploding in someone's face seems to be Taylor's favourite acting chop recently! Tay definitely doesn't seem to have a Blank Space in that creative mind of hers.

 

Wildest Dreams x Teardrops On My Guitar

Her love interest is interested in someone else, boohoo. Hence, the Teardrops On (Her) My Guitar.

 

Wildest Dreams x Love Story

Running in a pretty dress. Sadly, the difference between these two music videos is that in Wildest Dreams, she was running away from the guy because it wasn't the perfect Love Story.

*****

We hope that you understand why we thought this music video looked awfully familiar to us. Did it look familiar to you too when you first watched it?

And if you haven't even watched it, what are you waiting for?

Do you like Little Mix's 'Hair'?

Like we all already know, the ladies of Little Mix have really great hair. And it is even better that their newest single is named after one of their best features, their Hair!

This definitely calls for a celebration for all the Mixers everywhere! 

First of all, can we all agree that this is such an amazing song title for this talented girl band? Aren't they the perfect group to slay this song? 

They don't only have great hair, but they are known for probably having all the colours of the rainbow on their gorgeous locks at one point of time or another.

Even though this track was recorded long before the very public Zerrie break-up, we can't help but think this is such a time appropriate song for Perrie and the girls to sing it with her.

We are so glad that the girls have always been there for her during this difficult period. Whether it being comforting her when she broke down halfway during a performance, speaking up for her in interviews or even showing off some Karate moves to distract the paparazzi.

They got each other's backs, and they don't care, gotta get (*ahem*) him out their hair!

In the meantime, we'll definitely be grooving along to this song and waiting (not so) patiently for the music video to drop!

Are you in love with a monster?

Fifth Harmony have just released their music video for I'm In Love With a Monster on 27 August. This song from the motion picture, Hotel Transylvania 2, has got Harmonizers all over the world very excited for its music video when the audio was released earlier this month.

Harmonizers, you need not wait anymore as the music video has arrived in its full glory. And it is just so scary to know how good this music video is!

Can we just take a minute to appreciate how good they look even when trying to look scary and monster-like? The stylists really did a good job dressing them up to look the part.

And a round of applause for the camera crew and editors for giving each girl an appropriate amount of screen time so that we can admire their beauty both individually and as a group.

Fifth Harmony should definitely be given more opportunities to collaborate on soundtracks for movies in the near future because their vocals are currently killing it in the music industry.

Which movie do you think they should collaborate with next? Do let us know in the comments down below!

Directioners are known for the things they do in the world of fandoms. From trending hashtags about One Direction on Twitter daily to voting their thumbs off to win awards for the lads and of course, breaking records.

It was no exception when One Direction's latest single, Drag Me Down, had its music video released on Vevo on 20 August.

Directioners obviously went all out and started trending #DragMeDownVevoRecord on Twitter in hope of breaking the most viewed Vevo video record on YouTube.

This fandom is not only crazily dedicated and passionate, but intelligent. So here are the 5 ways Directioners are trying to break the #DragMeDownVevoRecord!

 

1. Play the music video on any possible device available

Even if it's not yours, just play the music video on whatever device you can find that has wifi!

 

2. Encourage fellow Directioners that they have the power to not just break the Vevo record but Vevo itself

Directioners should stick together in a time like this, and remind each other that they are not a force to be reckoned with.

 

3. Remind everyone who currently holds the Vevo record

Although Drag Me Down didn't beat Taylor Swift's Bad Blood Vevo record for the most viewed video within 24 hours, Directioners did not give up so easily. They found a new goal and are giving everything they got. Miley, you better watch out!

 

4. Thank the haters for helping out

Looks like Directioners have a little group called the "haters" to thank for adding to the view count of the music video. Thanks haters for watching!

 

5. Teach fellow Directioners to REFRESH not REPLAY

I repeat "REFRESH not REPLAY" in order for your view to count!

Which category do you fall under? Do let us know in the comments down below!

And we know that you've enjoyed watching the music video! So why not watch it again and again and again? Come on, we know you want to ;)

Can somebody please say awkward? How weird is it for two people who were once madly in love with each other, decide to collaborate on a song together and then break up?

These ex-couples would probably not be singing these songs with their used-to-be better halves anytime soon because the world would be screaming "AWKWARD!!!" in many different languages.

So here's 5 song collaborations by some of our previous favourite celebrity couples. Try not to cringe or reminisce too much!

 

1. Who You Love - John Mayer and Katy Perry

This pair have had an on-and-off again relationship for many years. And they broke off again after getting engaged. But we heard that they are back together again?! This is way too confusing...

 
 

2. Right There - Ariana Grande and Big Sean

Ariana and Big Sean was labeled an odd couple by many but managed to prove others wrong by being one of the sweetest celebrity couples out there. However, that wasn't enough to keep their relationship going for long.

 
 

3. Vertigo - Jason Derulo and Jordin Sparks

There were definitely sparks in their eyes as they performed this love song together. It's a pity we won't be getting any more performances like this from both of them again.

 
 

4. Nobody's Business - Rihanna and Chris Brown

We all know about the abusive relationship between Rihanna and Chris Brown. In this case, we have to say it is our business to show care and concern for Riri as we do not stand for any sort of domestic violence.

 
 

5. This Is Me - Demi Lovato and Joe Jonas

It is unlikely that you would sing a duet with any of your exes. But this duo has shown us how mature they are as they recently performed this Camp Rock hit on one of Demi's tour shows!

The annual Teen Choice Awards has never failed to impress us with its great line up of performances and awards given out to celebrate the biggest achievements in music, movies and more!

This year's highly anticipated award show has definitely topped itself from its last. Yeah sure, great music and great people were present.

But what were the most iconic moments from the award show?

 

1. One Direction's No Control Wins An Award

No Control is the first song that isn't a single in TCA history to win a surfboard! Don't let me get started on how many awards One Direction won that night without even being there! 

 

2. Geeky Little Mix Makes An Appearance

 

Little Mix dressing up as their Black Magic characters and changing into real-life goddesses on stage is probably one of the coolest thing ever!

 

3. Rachel Platten's Inspiring Performance

 

It is really refreshing to see someone passionately fighting for issues in the world that really matter!

 

4. Ally From Fifth Harmony Imitates Britney Spears

Oh Ally! This little ball of sunshine recreated Britney's infamous facial expression when Fifth Harmony made it to the finals on The X Factor.

 

5. Britney Spears Sits In Front Of Her Doppelgander: Rydel Lynch

Britney is definitely an icon as she made it twice in our list with her doppelganger, Rydel Lynch of R5, sitting right behind her!
