The Wanted will be performing their new single "Catching The Sun" tonight on The Voice. Fingers crossed for local girl Lindsey Pavao, who finds out tonight whether she makes the top 8!

Other new CD's out today include Neon Trees' sophomore effort Picture Show, which features the cool song "Everybody Talks," and Jason Mraz's Love Is A Four Letter Word.
Nicki Minaj will be a busy girl in 2012. She just dropped her new CD a couple weeks ago, announced that she'll be a part of advertising campaigns for Pepsi and Adidas, and today let us know that she's got her own fragrance coming out this fall. It will be produced by the same company responsible for Justin Bieber's fragrance last year.
Coldplay kicks off their Mylo Xyloto North American tour tonight in Edmonton. They will play two shows later this month (4/27-28) at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, the closest they come to Sacramento this time around.
Two big TV appearances for Gotye this week. He will be hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend and you may have seen Glee's version of his hit "Somebody That I Used to Know" last night done as a duet between Blaine and his older brother.
Maroon 5 will be performing a brand new song with Wiz Khalifa next week on The Voice. It's called "Pay Phone" and it's from their new CD Overexposed coming out June 26. I had the opportunity to hear it earlier this week and I think it's going to be a huge hit this spring and summer!
Fresh off the biggest hit of her career "Love You Like A Love Song", Selena Gomez announced that she is taking a break from her singing career to concentrate on acting. You can catch her on the big screen when "Spring Breakers" is released in Spring 2013.
Have you ever wondered how much it would cost to rent out the beach for a day? Evidently $925, which is how much J-Lo paid to the city of Long Beach to rent Marine Beach all for herself last weekend. It was a family affair as her boyfriend, kids and others enjoyed the famous So-Cal sunshine without the inconvenience of any annoying fans close by.
2012 is shaping up to be the year that pop music re-takes the top of the charts. Bieber's protege Carly Rae Jepsen's debut single "Call Me Maybe" hit #1 on the UK charts and also became the fastest selling single of 2012 so far. That's at the same time that British boy band The Wanted hit #1 on the US Pop charts. And next week Bieber himself will most likely hit the Top 10 on the Pop Charts for the first time in his career as "Boyfriend" is racing up the charts even as we speak.
Three good songs playing tonight in New Music Monday, including the new Neon Trees song called "Everybody Talks" that I've been diggin for a couple months now. Also a fun new song from British singer Cher Lloyd that a lot of people are comparing to Pink. And last but not least David Guetta's new song with featured vocalist Sia who you probably know as the singer with Flo Rida on his latest song "Wild Ones".
