Now I've got some news about Shane Ward. Who? you may be thinking. Rememeber the guy who won the 2nd series of X-factorin 2005? Seems like such a long time ago doesn't it? Well he hasn't seemed to have been doing much since he won however he is soon to bring out a new album called 'Obession'. It will be his first album out in 3 years and he has revealed there will be a guest vocalists joining him. He has said "There are definitely some guest vocalists on there. I want to tell you who they are, but I just can't yet!. All I can say is I definitely went out to find really great singers - people who could carry the songs the way I wanted them to be carried." This is the first time he has ever recorded with other singers and he has also very close on deciding the final track listing for 'Obession'. He Has said"I've been going through it all this week - listening to songs and thinking about how to order them. Simon could say, 'This song's going on it as well', but as far as I know for now it's a ten-track album,". The album comes out in November and it will be trailed by the single 'Gotta Be Somebody' a week earlier, so keep a look out for that!

Christmas Doctor Who

It has been announced that this year's Christmas special of Doctor Who will, for the first time ever, in it's 47 year history, feature a musical performance intergrated into the storyline. Oprea Star, Katherine Jenkins will perform a lovesong which has been written by Murray Gold - who pens all the music for the show. Producers have promised it will be a real treat by saying "It's going to be an amazing surprise. We have never had anyone burst into song on 'Doctor Who'. It's a TV first for us. This will send ratings sky high." 'Harry Potter' legend Michael Gambon will also appear playing playing a futuristic Scrooge in Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. The Doctor (played my Matt Smith) and his companion Amy Pond (played by Karen Gillan) will set out on adventure to show Scrooge the error of his ways. Executive producer and lead writer Steven Moffat showed his excitment about the December special, by saying"It's easily the most Christmassy thing you'll ever see. It's a huge, sentimental, lovely, jeopardy-driven story. It's the Christmas special I'd like to see. It's like a compilation of every Christmas movie - a big Christmas treat. But that doesn't mean it's without scares, and that doesn't mean it's without heartbreak. It has genuine tragedy in it." Ooh that does sound exciting! Can't wait to see that.

Cheryl Cole Duets With Dizzee Rascal

Next month Cheryl Cole's second solo album, called 'Messy Little Raindrops' will be realeased. On the album she will joined by none other than rapper Dizzee Rascal for a duet of a song called 'Everybody, Everyone'. A source has said "Cheryl approached Dizzee about working together and they managed to rattle this track out in record time for the new album. "It was only a matter of time before the current King and Queen of pop came together. "It was all Cheryl's idea. She's a big fan of Dizzee and his collaborations with other artists. They got on really well and were on the same level. They had a good laugh together." With lyric's such as"I don't know what you're waiting for / Sometimes life's unfair / Don't let that stop you though / I been right where you are before. I'm no saint / You're not either / So what we trying to be perfect for?" the song is about getting through difficult times, which Cheryl has had recently including her spilt from Ex-husband Ashley Cole and he battle with Malaria. Both artist's have had great sucess with duets in the past, Dizzee with Florence and the machine and Shakira, and Cheryl with Black eyed peas star a friend Will.I.Am. so I'm sure this song will be a great hit too!

Mcfly featuring Rap on album?!

Mcfly are known for there rock material however they have been thinking about including a rap into their music! Although they are not keen of rapping themselves they considered having a rap breakdown on thier track 'Above the noise' which is on thier new album which is being produced by US, Hip Hop producer Dallas Austin. Band member Tom Fletcher has said "A rap? Well, not with us performing it. If we featured a rapper, we could do that. I'd like us to do something with Tinie Tempah, that would be cool. Dallas did do a rap on one of our tracks. We did a thing on the album, that was really cool." The band have been recording in Atlanta, which they are really enjoying, as drummer Harry Judd mentioned at the BT Digital Music Awards. He said "We went to Atlanta where Dallas is based, it's a great place to go and work, we've never released anything over there and never promoted anything, so nobody knows who we are over there. "It's purely for recording and hanging out with Dallas it was incredible. There's a good feeling out in America." Tom added "We went out quite a lot because we were all in a hotel, so we didn't have to go too far. And we were all up for it, we had nothing else to do but go out." So Mcfly have been doing alot of partying recently, and so has the girl in thier song. It is Party Girl.
