We didn't see this cover coming.

On her upcoming new album, Susan Boyle slows down the Depeche Mode classic "Enjoy the Silence." The former Britain's Got Talent finalist shows off her vocal range once again on the track, taking it to a place the original version simply didn't go.

There's no sophomore slump here.

Following the enormous success of "Rolling in the Deep," Adele has been performing "Someone Like You" at concerts and award ceremonies all summer long. It's a beautiful, simple ballad, featuring the kind of lyrical ability and raw emotion that few other artists could even attempt to pull off.

And now it has its own official music video! Watch Adele stroll through the streets of Paris below, sullen, alone and engrossing:

New York is the city that never sleeps, and Upper West Side native Lady Gaga will release an ode to NYC, "Marry the Night," as her newest single very shortly.

The fifth single from Born This Way, the synth-heavy track is dance friendly (far more than "Edge of Glory" or "You and I," conjuring up memories of The Fame.

Take a listen to "Marry the Night" here if you haven't heard it.

“I wrote so many songs on this album about New York, but one in particular ‘Marry the Night,’ that record is about my husband, New York,” Gaga told MTV.

Even when she’s off touring the world in her outfits, dancing and performing her tail off night in and night out, she'll always be a New Yorker at heart.

Safe to say, NYC’s wife has done the greatest city in the world proud.

It's a great time to be Scotty McCreery.

The American Idol champion releases his debut album ("Clear as Day") in a week and has also just announced that he'll tour with country superstar Brad Paisley in 2012!

Cities, dates and other details will soon be released, but Scotty has Tweeted how “it’s really humbling that somebody like him would invite me to tour w/ him," adding: “I just hope i’m ready for any pranks he throws my way.”

Since he was crowned the season 10 winner in May, McCreery's exclusive Wal-Mart CD has sold 185,000 copies, and his first single, “I Love You This Big,” reached number 15 on Billboard‘s Country Songs chart. Far from shabby for the young artist.

Stefano Langone is the latest American Idol contestant to sign a record deal.

As of this week, the smooth singer is officially part of 19 Management, the same company that represents Pia Toscano, Haley Reinhart and James Durbin. Sources confirm that Langone is currently in the studio, working on his debut album.

We're very happy for Stefano, but we can't help but wonder: where is the record deal for friend of the site Casey Abrams? His run on season 10 was as original as any in Idol history.

Bruno Mars is probably the biggest name included on the Breaking Dawn soundtrack, which will hit stores on November 8 and feature these artists and singles.

Now, the multi-talented writer/singer has made available the song that will be heard at some point in the film. It's titled "It Will Rain" and we can't verify when or why it appears in part one of the final Twilight installment. But we can give readers a chance to listen to it here:

Kelly Clarkson takes an ambitious step in her new music video: she reads the comments section of various celebrity gossip blog posts.

How does she react from there? What decision does she reach about a guy that's constantly giving her orders? Knowing Clarkson's history of female-empowerment songs, the answer isn't exactly a surprise.

But it's still worth watching, as the official video for "Mr. Know It All" takes a jab at certain kinds of men and media members. Watch now:

It was humorous when Chris Farley screamed about it as Matt Foley on Saturday Night Live, but it's far less funny when it happens to a music legend:

Sly Stone is broke and living in a van.

The former funk singer, who fronted the group Sly & the Family Stone, opened up to The New York Post over the weekend about how his use of drugs and money mismanagement have led him to a homeless life on the road.

“I like my small camper,” Stone told the newspaper. “I just do not want to return to a fixed home. I cannot stand being in one place. I must keep moving.”

Lady Gaga moved us last night at the iheartradio music festival when she performed a tribute to Jamey Rodemeyer, a young fan who committed suicide last week.

"We lost a little monster this week and I wanted to dedicate this song to him tonight," Gaga said of the teenager, before belting out an eight-minute, stripped-down, yet still spirited version of "Hair," her anthem of individuality.

Watch the singer's full, moving performance right here:

Mid-song, Lady Gaga said "Jamey, I know you're up there looking on us, and you're not a victim, you're a lesson to all of us ... Bullying is for losers."

Rodemeyer was only 14 when he took his own life last Sunday, following online bullying (specifically gay slurs) for a year. He considered Gaga his idol.

As celebrities go, he certainly could do worse. R.I.P.
