A video of a random girl singing Whitney Houston's timeless hit "I Will Always Love You" at a mall karaoke machine is going viral, and it's easy to see why.

She's awesome. Some have speculated that she MUST be lip-synching to sound that good, but she's not ... nor is she as totally "random" as it may seem.

The young woman is Zendee Rose, a former contestant on the Philippines' version of The X Factor. Amazingly, these pipes didn't get her past Boot Camp:

Whitney would be proud. So would Ellen DeGeneres, who is probably on the phone as we speak trying to track down Zendee and book her for next week.

Kelly Clarkson takes on the Queen in the following concert clip.

Following a terrific cover of Rihanna, which followed a tremendous take on Lady Gaga - along with a number of fan requests across her summer-long, nationwide tour - the original American Idol stopped in Tuscaloosa, Alabama over the weekend.

She thrilled those in attendance with a version of Aretha's Frankling "Ain't No Way," once again showing off her range and talent. Give it a look and a listen now:

Chris Brown has redeemed himself since - or at least succeeded in spite of - beating the crap out of then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009. He's one of the hottest acts in music today.

Not everyone is thrilled by his "comeback," however.

A group in the UK has taken upon itself to go around to record stores and affix custom "warning" stickers to Chris Brown's albums. Those stickers read:

"WARNING. DO NOT BUY THIS ALBUM! THIS MAN BEATS WOMEN."

Breeezy

"It would appear a member of the public dropped into one of our stores yesterday and stickered a handful of CDs," a rep for HMV said, denying any involvement.

"These unauthorized stickers were spotted and quickly removed, but, before we could act, the [individuals] must have taken a photo and sent it to the media."

"To our knowledge there are no further stickers in our stores now."

No word on whether the renegades plan to hit any other stores or if they saw Rihanna and Chris Brown kiss at the VMAs ... seems she's gotten over what happened three and a half years ago a lot more quickly than fans (for better or worse).

She can be seen every week on The Voice - three times per week on occasion! - but it's been two years since Christina Aguilera released her last studio album, "Bionic."

That will change on November 13, however, when the singer comes out with "Lotus."

In anticipation of the CD, Aguilera debuted its first single today, dropping "Your Body" during an appearance with Ryan Seacrest on his radio program.

Take a listen to the seductive single (sample lyrics: Hey boy/So don’t even tell me your name/All I need to know is whose place/And let’s get walking) below, admire the sexy cover art for it and sound off: What do you think?

Said the five-time Grammy winner to Seacrest of what fans can expect in two months:

"This album is about self-expression and freedom. There is a lot I have gone through personally over the past few years and this record represents a rebirth for me. The record is about freedom and getting back to the root of who I am and what I love to do."

Who conquered all on Season 7 of America's Got Talent? Justin Bieber.

No... wait. That isn't right.

There was an actual America's Got Talent winner named last night, but the aforementioned singing sensation did steal the show in many ways.

Taking to the stage alongside Big Sean, Bieber sang a version of "As Long As You Love Me," dancing around and making the young ladies shriek and stand like usual. It was a fun performance and we've it posted below. Hit Play and enjoy!

Poor Mitt Romney.

First, it comes out that Nicki Minaj is actually not voting for him in November. Now, in the track "To the World" (off the compilation album "Cruel Summer"), Kanye West takes a shot at the Republican nominee for President by hitting him where it counts:

In Romney's tax returns.

“Mitt Romney don’t pay no tax,” West decrees in a line from the single, following that quip with: “Mitt Romney don’t pay no tax.”

Yes, again. We think he has a point he wants to make. Listen for yourself:

This isn't the only time West has been critical of someone running for office or already in the highest office in the land. He said George W. Bush doesn't care about black people during the Hurricane Katrina disaster.

We wonder what Kim Kardashian thinks of this whole thing. Oh... right: Whatever her mother tells her to think.

Warning to all THGers: Kleenex may be required for viewing of the following video.

It takes fans behind the scenes with Pink, as the pop rocker chronicles her time in New York City promoting the single "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)." But it's set to a different track, "Pretty Pretty Please" and it's one long love letter to Pink's daughter's Willow, who makes many cameos throughout.

NOTE: We checked and confirmed, this really is Pink. It's not Miley Cyrus.

Hit Play now and prepare for a few water works:

Lady Gaga brought her controversial new song about Princess Diana, "Princess Die," to the Princess' home country at Twickenham Stadium in London Saturday.

Gaga explained that "Princess Die" is a commentary on the effects of fame, including Amy Winehouse, Whitney Houston and even herself, to a degree.

"Since I was a very young girl, the people's princess was the most important person in me and my mother's life," Gaga said before performing the ballad.

"I swore if I ever had an audience like this in London, I'd take a moment to appreciate her ... This is for her, Amy Winehouse, Alexander McQueen, Whitney Houston and me."

True to Gaga's nature, the lyrics of the song are rather dark. Among them:

"Leave the coffin open when I go / Leave my pearls and lipstick on so everybody knows / Pretty will be the photo I leave / Laying down on famous knives so everybody sees."

Also true to form, Gaga invited a lucky female fan on stage for the performance, placing a tiara on the Little Monster's head as she sat beside her. Aww.

What do you think of Lady Gaga's "Princess Die"?
