It's Gonna Be A Long Cold Diva Winter

For many of us it already seems like the Mariah Carey – Nicki Minaj show, also known as American Idol, ended. After months and months of stories and pre-airing hype I feel like I know everything that happens. Oh! I'm sorry. Wait a minute! Isn't this show about average people pursuing their dreams and becoming stars over night. That's right! We all just forgot for a minute. It bothers me that American Idol has become all about the judges. But with all the seasons they have under their belt, plus added competition from other networks, there isn't much else they can do to promote the franchise.  And with all that said…they still are the best at discovering and creating REAL music stars. The Voice, which is actually my favorite of all music shows, is the best at keeping the focus on the bidding talent. But they've yet to yield even a nominal music star. Is Cassadee Pope going to be the first? Regardless…it's a good thing Christina Aguilera is taking the next season off from The Voice, cause 5 octave Mariah (xtina is 4) and new diva on the block Nicki will be sucking all the oxygen out of the atmosphere this winter.

And speaking of winter, if you think I spent most of last year locked away in a studio, wait to you hear what happens when it's cold and you don't wanna go outside. I'm putting the HK sonic touch on all your fav's this week. Get ready for ear-gasims on "Rest of My Life" – Ludacris/Usher/David Guetta, "Scream & Shout" – Will.I.AM/Britney Spears, "Sweet Nothing" – Calvin Harris f/Florence Welch and the new banger from Macklamore & Ryan Lewis f/Wanz – "Thrift Shop". By the time it's all over you'll be in a puddle of sweat after grooving on my remixes of RihannaPitbullAlicia Keys and Swedish House Mafia. But wait there's more. Are you sitting down? Even Ed SheeranThe ScriptNeon Trees and The Cab will fall into the sonic bliss known as In The Mix with HK. I've got all that plus new music from Sean KingstonThe Ready SetConor MaynardOwl City and more!!

Remember…If it's hot, if it's new and it makes you wanna move…you're In The Mix with HK™.
