Funny how some things work out. Chris Medina, the American Idol contestant who grabbed so much attention from viewers (and Jennifer Lopez, who broke down when she eliminated him from the show), is a bona fide recording artist.

He doesn’t have to wait around for some reality competition to finish. The day following his televised elimination from the show, Medina debuted a brand-new single on iTunes, “What Are Words,” which you can hear in the video above. The entire song is based on the gut-wrenching, heart-twisting story Medina shared with the Idol judges at his first audition for the show.

Medina’s production company is 19 Recordings. But… wait! Isn’t 19 Recordings the same company that produces all the American Idols? Now, you’re catching on.

The Glee Christmas album won’t be in stores until November 16, but here’s a little taste of the holidays you can enjoy right now.

In an effort to promote the new album, Glee: The Music, The Christmas Album, a new holiday card featuring the main cast members in horrible sweaters has been released … and we can vouch for the fact that it makes a great desktop wallpaper. Every single expression is different, and you can practically tell a story with Jane Lynch’s Sue Sylvester sneer.

Glee’s holiday-themed episode will air on December 7 ... but we can’t promise you’ll get to see the sweaters.

Soundgarden is releasing their first album in 13 years … through popular video game Guitar Hero. The bold move hasn’t been tried by any other band, but thinks it’s the perfect way to re-introduce their music.

“It’s going to reach a certain amount of younger people that either may or may not know about ,” he explained in a recent interview. “I feel like releasing it this way is going to reach a lot of people who have not heard our music or have not heard a lot of it.”

The album, Telephantasm, is filled with popular tracks from the band’s 90s-era heyday as well as some new tracks. It’s available on Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock. Based on the number of games sold, the album has already been granted platinum status.

“I thought about doing this ever since I’ve heard about the game and what it is,” Cornell said. “I think the musical arrangements lend itself so well to what the video game is.”
