Fifth Harmony Continues Streak of Flawless Covers with One Direction's "They Don't Know About Us"

Cue the OMFG #DYING REBLOG!1!!! hysteria from Harmonizers and Directioners alike. They've already snatched many a wig with their cover of Lana Del Rey's "American" a few weeks ago. Before that, it was Frank Ocean's "Thinkin 'Bout You." And most recently, they delivered a killer rendition of Ed…


The Video for One Direction's "Kiss You" Has Premiered (If You're Into That Sort of Thing)

I'll be honest: I've never been able to hop aboard the 1D train. While I've always been proud of the boys for their explosion onto the global pop market following their run on the star-packed seventh season of X Factor UK, I've just never really bought into the whole 'thing.' The music's catchy,…

Beatles Week: A Very Thorough X Factor Performance Night Review (November 20)

It's Beatles Week at the X Factor! And, as one of the only human beings on this planet who doesn't care much for the Legendary Icons of Music Making (well, not until they dabbled with the Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds anyway), I can't seem to muster much excitement for this week--except by using…


Elton John Night: A Very Thorough X Factor Performance Night Review (November 13)

Boy, they're really clobbering this whole Elton John thing to death, aren't they?
