Now, we also got iPod Nano ??? Can anyone tell me what is the difference between iPod Touch and iPod Nano? Which is the better choice? Pls tell me.

Paris Hilton

Paris Hilton was born on February 17th, 1981, to Rick and Kathy Hilton. She born into wealth and the American equivalent of aristocracy, Paris Hilton was the oldest of Kenneth Hilton and Kathy Richards' four children, and an heir to the family's hotel chain (her great-grandfather, Conrad Hilton, was the founder). Growing up in New York and L.A., Paris, though she was often seen with celebrities, didn't become a household name until her ex-boyfriend Rick Salomon released a sex tape of theirs onto the Internet in 2003, shortly before her Fox reality show, The Simple Life, was set to air.

Paris, along with her younger sister Nicky, also became notorious as socialites, gracing party after party and getting bad press for their antics. For example, Paris has grabbed headlines by shoving ahead of others in a washroom line, then, when upbraided for her rudeness, quipped that she only wanted to look at herself in the mirror. She has also danced on top of bar banquettes, gone topless for attention, and paraded around in designer T-shirts with slogans like, "Got Blow?" Yet Paris maintains that the bad press "sucks" and that "people are mean."

In 2001, she had a cameo appearance in Ben Stiller's fashion spoof, Zoolander. Other appearances include a role as a strung-out supermodel in the film short QIK2JDG, The Hillz (co-starring boyfriend Jason Shaw), Wonderland, and the big-screen adaptation of the Dr. Seuss classic, The Cat in the Hat. She also starred in the FOX reality show, The Simple Life, based on Green Acres, and featured Tape living on a farm. The show was such a success that there will likely be a sequel. Paris, now famous for being famous, began dabbling in modeling, writing, movies, and of course, music. Drawing inspiration from the lighthearted, summertime pop of Gwen Stefani and Ashlee Simpson, the album's first single, "Stars Are Blind," was released in the spring of 2006, followed by her self-titled full-length debut in August

On top of her burgeoning acting career, Paris has designed a high-end collection of purses for Tokyo label Samantha Thavasa, along with her sister Nicky. Paris has also given back; she has done charity work for Toys for Tots. Unfortunately, her attempts to start a modeling company and a makeup line seem to have fizzled.

Bachman-Turner Overdrive BTO

Randy Bachman was the guitarist for Canada's first hard-rock band, the Guess Who, formed several years before the term "hard-rock" was coined. When hard-rock became fashionable, they recorded three albums, Wheatfield Soul (RCA, 1969), Canned Wheat (RCA, 1969) and American Woman (RCA, 1970), that established them among the premier hard-rock acts in the world (respectively These Eyes, Undun, American Woman).

Bachman left Guess Who to launch his solo career, with Axe (RCA, 1970), and to form his own band, Brave Belt, which recorded two albums, I (1971) and II (1972). When bassist Fred Turner joined the band, the Bachman-Turner Overdrive was born. Their first album with the new name, Bachman Turner Overdrive (Mercury, 1973), offered solid boogie. II (Mercury, 1974) was heavily influenced by the Who (Takin' Care Of Business). Not Fragile (1974), their masterpiece, contains You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet and Roll On Down The Highway. After the mediocre Four Wheel Drive (1975), the band tried to reinvent itself on Head On (1976), which couples traditional numbers such as Take It Like A Man with more sophisticated pieces such as Lookin' Out For Number One. After Freeways (1977), Bachman left the band and launched a new project, Ironhorse, which released Ironhorse and Everything Is Grey. The band reunited for BTO (Compleat, 1984).

Taking Care Of Business lyrics

You get up every morning
From your alarm clock's warning
Take the 8:15 into the city
There's a whistle up above
And people pushin', people shovin'
And the girls who try to look pretty

And if your train's on time
You can get to work by nine
And start your slaving job to get your pay
If you ever get annoyed
Look at me I'm self-employed
I love to work at nothing all day

And I'll be...
Taking care of business, every day
Taking care of business, every way
I've been taking care of business, it's all mine
Taking care of business. and working overtime
Work out

If it were easy as fishin'
You could be a musician
If you could make sounds loud or mellow
Get a second-hand guitar
Chances are you'll go far
If you get in with the right bunch of fellows
People see you having fun
Just a-lying in the sun
Tell them that you like it this way
It's the work that we avoid
And we're all self-employed
We love to work at nothing all day

And I'll be...
Taking care of business, every day
Taking care of business, every way
I've been taking care of business, it's all mine
Taking care of business and working overtime

One, two, three, four
And we be...
Taking care of business every day
Taking care of business every way
I've been taking care of business, it's all mine
Taking care of business and working overtime

The Blues Brothers

George (aka Joliet Jake) recently broke the last marriage vow he ever took. On November 17, 1992 he vowed he would never get married again. However, on August 1, 1998, in the throws of an incredible testosterone rush brought on by a combination of a very pretty face and incredibly long legs, George succumbed to breaking his last vow. He married the Blues Babe of his dreams, and he now has a new mission.

David works in the Milwaukee area as a Heating and Air Conditioning technician. He specializes in residential customers and is known not only for his excellent work but also for his great sense of humor.

Eminem, born Marshall Bruce Mathers III, 17 October 1973, Kansas City, Missouri, USA. This white rapper burst onto the US charts in 1999 with a controversial take on the horrorcore genre. Mathers endured an itinerant childhood, living with his mother in various states before eventually ending up in Detroit at the age of 12. Eminem began performing at age 14, performing raps in the basement of his high school friend's home. The two went under the names Manix and M&M (soon changed to Eminem), which Mathers took from his own initials. Due to the unavoidable racial boundaries that came with being a white rapper, he decided the easiest way to win over underground hip-hop audiences was to become a battle rapper and improv against other MCs in clubs. Although he wasn't immediately accepted, through time he became such a popular attraction that people would challenge him just to make a name for themselves.

He first joined the New Jacks, and then moved on to Soul Intent, who released Eminem's first recorded single in 1995. A rapper named Proof performed the B-side on the single and enjoyed working with Eminem so much that he asked him to start yet another group. Drafting in a few other friends, the group became known as D-12, a six-member crew that supported one another as solo artists more than they collaborated. The birth of Eminem's first child put his career on hold again as he started working in order to care for his family. This also instilled a bitterness that started to creep into his lyrics as he began to drag personal experiences into the open and make them the topic of his raps.

Although he's only been in the public eye since 1999, Marshall Mathers (aka Eminem) has crammed at least a decade's worth of career highs and lows into those few short, high-profile years. The Detroit-based Dr. Dre protégé has invoked the wrath of women and homosexuals with his offensive lyrics; become enemies with Moby, Everlast, Fred Durst, and Christina Aguilera; provided tabloids with plenty of gossip fodder regarding his personal life...and in the process become just about the biggest rock star on the planet. This is because Eminem isn't just about controversy and shock value: This often misunderstood major talent has actually given white rappers genuine credibility in this post-Vanilla Ice age with his string of dynamic hits (both solo and with his side group, D12), his plethora of Grammy nominations, his critically acclaimed film 8 Mile, and his three multiplatinum studio albums, which--once one gets past the hype and hullabaloo that surround them--are some of the most creative, original, and exciting releases of the rap genre (or any musical genre) in the past decade.

Britney Spears

Britney Jean Spears was born December 2, 1981 , in Kentwood Louisiana. The daughter of Lynne, an elementary school teacher, and Jamie, a construction contractor. At the age of 8, Britney auditioned for the popular children's variety show, Mickey Mouse Club but producers for the show decided she was too young, but one was impressed enough to help her find an agent in New York.

Three years after her first Mickey Mouse Club rejection, Britney finally landed a spot as a "Mouseketeer" at the age of 11. Joining a cast of talented teens on the show, Britney showed off her acting, dancing and singing talents on the show that also spawned the careers of fellow beauties Keri Russelland Christina Aguilera After 2 years of living in Orlando with her family while doing the show, Britney moved back home to Kentwood after the show was cancelled, and returned to high school.

Her one normal year as a fourteen-year-old high school student would be the last bit of normalcy in Britney's life. With a dream of pursuing a career as a singer and a desire to leave her small hometown, Britney set off to New York City yet again, this time destined to sign with a major record label. Britney finally signed with Jive Records, after an executive was fully impressed with the talent he heard on the demo tape. Working with Eric Foster White, a producer who had previously worked with artists such as Boyzoneand Whitney Houston, Britney's debut album was finally ready for its January 12, 1999 release date.

Baby, One More Time spawned such hits as "Crazy," "Sometimes" and of course the title track, the infectious "Baby, One More Time." The album held the number one spot on the Billboard charts, was certified RIAA 12 x platinum (it has gone on to sell more than 20 million copies), and won Britney awards such as the 1999 MTV Europe Awards for Best Female Artist, Best Pop Artist and Best Breakthrough Artist. Between recording her second album, Britney co-wrote a book with mom Lynne Spears, entitled Heart to Heart, and went on an extensive worldwide tour.

A huge Mariah Carey Michael Jacksonand Madonna fan, Britney has been scrutinized by the media with reports of a breast augmentation, and a love affair with England's most eligible bachelor, Prince William. With the The Edge hype nowhere near over, she returned to the music scene in 2000 with her follow-up album, entitled Oops!... I Did It Again. With a hit video accompanying the hit title track (in which Ms. Spears has definitely done it again, this time in a red leather catsuit), a second worldwide tour in support of her album, and millions of fans, Britney has definitely accomplished what few artists ever accomplish, at the mere age of 18.

The 8 times platinum Oops!... I Did It Again spawned number 1 singles like "Lucky," "Stronger" (in which she performs a lap dance to a chair), and "Don't Let Me Be The Last To Know." 2001 was a banner year for the popster, as she co-hosted the American Music Awards with L.L. Cool J.; performed at the Rock In Rio festival (where audiences got a real glimpse of what she sounds like offstage -- and we don't mean her singing voice); performed with Aerosmith, N Sync, Nelly, and Mary J. Bligeat the Super Bowl; appeared on a spoken-word CD of the Pope's prayers; and signed a multimillion-dollar endorsement with Pepsi. While she dances with factory workers in a warehouse, impressing even Viagra-enhanced Bob Dole and his dog, Christina Aguilerastars in a Coca-Cola commercial, fueling more than just a pop war.

The mystery of her sudden physical maturity is still unsolved, but there are two rumors we can dispel: Britney isn't cuddling up to Prince William, but rather a prince of pop, *N Sync singer Justin Timberlake. Although she preaches abstinence until marriage, it's hard to believe that Britney and Justin do no more than cuddle. And another rumor that is certainly not true is the one claiming that Britney and Justin were killed in a car crash in Los Angeles; it was just a prank courtesy of two radio personalities.

Britney and her legions of teenage fans aren't her only admirers: it turns out her role-model, Madonna, has said that she's a big fan of Britney, and a duet with the new Princess of Pop is in the works. Britney also appeared in a one-hour BBC documentary on the Material Girl. As if CDs, sold-out concerts, books (her second co-written book with her mother was released in April 2001, entitled A Mother's Gift), and a huge endorsement aren't enough, Britney is now working on an acting career and tinkering with the idea of a fashion line.

Spears' self-titled third album was a laboured attempt to cultivate a more mature approach, with the singer also going a long way towards shedding her puritanical image. Although its initial sales were not as strong as her previous two albums, Britney shot straight to the top of the US album chart on its release in November 2001 for a brief stay. Her fourth album saw Spears moving further away from teen pop, disposing of the services of Max Martin and cultivating a sexually charged adult image at odds with the flirtatious schoolgirl of her earlier albums.

The album, released in November 2003, included a collaboration with Madonna on "Me Against The Music" (the two singers had raised some eyebrows by snogging on stage at the MTV Video Music awards in August). Despite mixed reviews, In The Zone debuted at the top of the US charts. In truth, "Me Against The Music" is hardly about declaring war against grooves. "Actually, it's about the intensity that people approach music with," Britney shares. "It's about getting totally lost in the music and pushing yourself to the edge in every way you can imagine. I love thoroughly immersing myself in music, and I wanted to capture that intensity in a song."

Britney's musical intensity and her evolution from a teen renegade into a provocative young woman are undeniable throughout "In The Zone," her fourth Jive Records collection. First and foremost, the project shows her flexing notably strong and mature songwriting muscles. She co-wrote 7 of the project's 12 sterling new compositions, collaborating with such heavy hitters as Red Zone ("Me Against The Music," "The Hook Up"), The Matrix ("Shadow"), Moby ("Early Mornin'"), and Cathy Dennis ("Toxic," "Showdown"). Also contributing hit worthy material to the album is R. Kelly("Outrageous"), Ying-Yang Twins on "(I Got That) Boom Boom."

At the age of 15, Rihanna received her big break when one of her friends introduced her to music producer Evan Rogers, who was vacationing in Barbados with his wife. Rogers, along with his partner, Carl Sturken, helped Rihanna record material in the U.S. which was sent to various recording companies. One copy of Rihanna's work was sent to Jay-Z, who eventually signed her to Def Jam Recordings.

Her first single from the album, “Pon De Replay” was released in June 2005, before the album was released and quickly made it to #2 on the US charts and #15 in Canada.

Rihanna second album, A Girl like Me, was released in April 2006; less than eight months after the release of her first album. The lead single, "SOS", was used in an endorsement deal with Nike. The song became Rihanna's first number-one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart; it also debuted at number one on the Hot Digital Songs chart. The second single, entitled "Unfaithful", was written by R&B singer Ne-Yo and became her third top ten hit in the U.S. and in the UK.

50 cent Curtis Jackson

Born 6th July 1975 in the South Jamaica section of Queens, Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson has lived in New York City all his life. Raised by his grandparents after his father ran out and his mother was shot when he was only eight. Growing up, the Queens rapper originally wanted to be a heavyweight boxer, but eventually fell back on rapping. DJs had taken it upon themselves to release two Best of 50 Cent mix CDs, before he had even signed to a major label.

50 Cent hit the scene with "How To Rob An Industry Nigga" and he's been on a rampage ever since dealing with bootleggers, label back stabbing and other platinum selling artists trying to get at him physically. In 1999 his album Power of the Dollar, was heavily bootlegged and Trackmasters/Columbia never released it. Supposedly, Trackmasters weren't comfortable with him being caught up in the streets and getting shot three days before filming the video for "Thug Love," (with Destiny's Child) -- his first single. 50 was shot nine times that night, two shots hitting him in the head, the bullet that struck his face he carries as a reminder of what happened. That event led to the fall out with Columbia and negotiating his release from their grasps.

50 cent still showed love and rhymed over a Trackmasters produced remix of "I'm Gonna Be Alright" on J-Lo's latest album, but rivals at Murder Inc. had 50 cut from the track which could have launched the rapper. This all changed in one night when Eminem said on a radio show that "50 Cent is definitely my favorite rapper right now, he's the only one keeping it real." The very next day a bidding war started on 50, ending when 50 signed to Eminem's very own label Shady/Aftermath. 50 Cent's fame has exploded, being produced by Dr. Dre and Eminem and finally making his debut album "Get rich or Die Tryin'. 50 has full access and advantage of the streets through mix-tapes; that's his forum because he controls it. 50 Cent is the most anticipated artist of 2003. It's well deserved because he's "been patiently waiting."

His brother, Kenneth, resides in Victoria, Virginia. In his spare time, Daughtry is an artist, specializing in drawing and painting, and he reads comic books avidly. At the age of 16, Daughtry started taking singing seriously as a professional musician and became a performer with other rock bands during his time in high school. It was while in high school that he appeared in two stage productions: The Wiz and Peter Pan.

His first public performance was singing "Achy Breaky Heart" at his grandfather's bar. He graduated from Fluvanna High School in 1998. Daughtry's first job was a service worker at a car dealership at Crown Honda, in Greensboro, North Carolina. He also had a part time job at a Wal-Mart.[citation needed]In 2005, Daughtry auditioned for the CBS singing contest, Rock Star: INXS. He did not make the cut for the actual filming of the show.

Daughtry was a lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist of his own rock bands in Burlington. The CD of Daughtry's ex-band, Absent Element, began to float the internet during the 2006 season of "American Idol."In a segment on the 2006 season of American Idol, Daughtry revealed that he is balding and made the decision to shave his head completely in order to retain an aesthetically pleasing appearance. He has one step-daughter from his wife's previous marriage, and one adopted son. His daughter, Hannah Price, was born in July 1998, and his son, Griffin Daughtry, was born in January 2001.

Daughtry auditioned for American Idol in Denver, Colorado with The Boxtops' "The Letter"; he was portrayed as a young rocker with Southern and hard rock influences. He passed the audition by a split decision: approved by Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson, disapproved by Simon Cowell. Simon felt that Chris at that time was too robotic.On March 1, 2006, Daughtry's "raw" performance of Fuel's "Hemorrhage (In My Hands)" received critical acclaim by all three judges. On March 3, 2006, Jackson stated in an interview that Daughtry had been offered the opportunity to become Fuel's new lead singer.

He was in the bottom two with Katharine McPhee. After Ryan Seacrest announced Chris was going home that night, both Daughtry and McPhee were extremely shocked. Seacrest asked Daughtry if he was surprised. An obviously stunned Daughtry could only utter, "A little, yeah".

There has been some controversy regarding the accuracy of the vote count on the night Daughtry was eliminated. The vote-tallying website DialIdol predicted that Daughtry was the lowest vote-getter for the weeIn an interview after his elimination, Daughtry said that he thought he got voted off because his fans were "overconfident" that he would be safe, so they did not call and vote.During the Season 5 finale on May 24, 2006 at the Kodak Theater in Hollywood, Daughtry performed the song "Mystery" with the band Live.

After Daughtry's performance with Live, "Mystery" was as high as #80 on the ITunes top 100 songs. The downloadable song later appeared on Live's profile. Daughtry and fellow Idol contestant Ace Young have been friends since they met at the show's Denver auditions, and even periodically shared an apartment as finalists. Young said they clicked because they shared similar upbringings and were both "big on family." Ryan Seacrest had also dubbed them "the Ben Affleck and Matt Damon of the season" when the two were placed in the "bottom 2" together on Young's elimination. In the final episode of the season, a clip of them in a "Best Male Bonding" segment was also shown. Devoted fan alliances of the friendship between Daughtry and Young, referred to as "Chrisace" or "Chrace," have materialized on the Internet. On American Idol, clips of every one of Daughtry's performances except for his a cappella performance during Hollywood Week were featured on the show. Daughtry sang "The Letter" for his first audition. After being given a Golden Ticket to Hollywood he performed "The First Cut Is the Deepest", and sang "Emotions" during his duo performance with Ace Young. The song for Daughtry's a cappella performance remains unknown.

However, during his first performance in the top 24, Randy and Simon made positive comments on his song choice. This was in reference to him choosing a Matchbox Twenty song in a previous round. It has been inferred that Chris sang a Matchbox Twenty song for the a cappella round.After leaving American Idol, Daughtry traveled the talk show circuit, post-season promotion which has become increasingly commonplace for non-winners as American Idol progressed through the years. He made appearances on The Tonight Show, Total Request Live, and The Today Show. He also appeared on Live with Regis and Kelly and The Ellen DeGeneres Show, in which he performed "Wanted Dead or Alive"—his track on the American Idol Season Five: Encores CD. In a later episode of the show in which Ellen interviewed former presidents Bill Clinton and George H. W. Bush who were collaborating on the Bush-Clinton Katrina fund, she even jokingly asked if anything could be done about Daughtry's elimination.Daughtry has proved quite successful since Idol. For the week of June 10, 2006, Daughtry's cover of "Wanted Dead or Alive" charted at #43 on the Billboard Hot 100, being named the Hot Shot Debut of the week.

American Idol performances
* February 22, 2006 - "Wanted Dead or Alive" by Bon Jovio Randy Jackson praised his choice of song. Paula Abdul stated that he would "go all the way". Simon Cowell said: "For the first time tonight, now I'm hearing somebody with potential."
* March 1, 2006 - "Hemorrhage (In My Hands)" by Fuelo The judges loved this performance. Cowell thought it was the best performance of the night, stating it was "in a different class". Jackson said that Daughtry could be on top of the charts right now. Abdul said Daughtry was amazing. After hearing him sing this song, the band who originally recorded it, Fuel, was at the time without a lead singer, and they offered him the position but he refused, saying "he'd still like to work with them somewhere down the road."
* March 8, 2006 - "Broken" by Seethero Jackson and Abdul liked this performance, but Cowell found it boring, chiding Chris for his song choice. He advised Chris not to be too "insular"--an idea he would reiterate in following weeks.

* March 14, 2006 - "Higher Ground" by Stevie Wondero Theme: Stevie Wonder+ Roundly praised by all three judges. Cowell opened his comments with, "Thank God for Chris". He said he could imagine Chris having a hit with his rendition of the song, and that Daughtry's blend of Stevie Wonder and the Red Hot Chili Peppers was the only "real world" performance making it the "best tonight, by a mile".
* March 21, 2006 - "I Walk the Line" by Johnny Cash as performed by Liveo Theme: 1950's+ The judges strongly praised Daughtry's originality in presenting a version very different from Cash's original. However, many viewers felt that this performance was similar to a version done by the alternative band Live; no reference to Live was made during the broadcast. Many fans of Daughtry have speculated that he may have given credit to Live in portions of the pre-performance interview that were edited out. On the March 28 episode, in a discussion with Seacrest, Daughtry said that it was in fact Live's version.In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Chris said, "It wasn't my doing. You say a lot of things in the [pretaped] interview, and when editing gets involved, things get cut out for time constraints. I did mention in my interview that I'm doing a different version from a band I totally respect. The lead singer of Live, Ed Kowalczyk, called me to say, Man, don't listen to that. We've been talking a lot since. It's really cool for me, because that's the band that inspired me to get into music. Ed Kowalczyk is my favorite singer. It was really cool to get that kind of respect.
* March 28, 2006 - "What If" by Creedo Theme: Songs of the 21st Century+ Jackson liked the song choice, but thought the singing was sharp and it was not his best performance. Abdul loved it, and said "What if...what if...what if...I am your biggest fan?!". Cowell thought he went too far with the song and that "Creed wouldn't be caught dead on this show." Cowell also advised him that he should try something different from the constant rock archetype which he has performed in for most of the competition, calling it indulgent.
* April 4, 2006 - "Making Memories of Us" by Keith Urbano Theme: Country+ Jackson and Abdul liked Daughtry's austere performance and that he showed another musical side of himself. Cowell, however, thought it was a boring song choice, but still liked him showing another musical side.
* April 11, 2006 - "Innuendo" by Queeno Theme: Queen+ Jackson and Abdul, generally fans of Daughtry, both said the performance was great. Cowell did not like the song, and wished that Daughtry had chosen "One of the great Queen songs", but said that the performance was done well. He said it was a little bit indulgent again.
* April 18, 2006 - "What a Wonderful World" by Louis Armstrong (Bottom 2)o Theme: Great American Songbook+ All of the judges gave Daughtry's performance rave reviews; Cowell called it "great." Still, Daughtry found himself in the bottom two on elimination night.
* April 25, 2006 - "Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman?" by Bryan Adams (Top 2)o Theme: Greatest Love Songs+ All three judges loved the performance. However, due to airtime constraints, the judges were only allowed a few seconds to speak. Daughtry was in the top two on elimination night.
* May 2, 2006 - "Renegade" by Styx and "I Dare You" by Shinedowno Theme: Song From The Contestant's Birth Year (Chris - 1979)+ First song: All three judges gave this performance rave reviews. Cowell said it was a million times better than the first two performances of the night.o Theme: Billboard Top 10+ Second song: The judges thought Daughtry's performance was "okay", but it was obvious to them after multiple practice sessions his voice was starting to give out.
* May 9, 2006 - "Suspicious Minds" by Elvis Presley and "A Little Less Conversation" by Elvis Presley o Theme: Elvis Presley+ Suspicious Minds: Paula said: "You forget how good that song is, until you hear Chris Daughtry sing it. See you in the finals." Simon gave positive feedback on the first song, and criticized his second song. Daughtry was in the bottom with Katharine McPhee, on May 10, 2006. When asked by Seacrest who would be leaving, Simon expressed that he believed that Katharine should be eliminated; however, Chris, to his surprise, was the one eliminated (McPhee was surprised as well, as it seemed she was braced and ready to leave).+ A Little Less Conversation: In an interview with TV Week, Nigel Lythgoe commented, "Jon Peter Lewis did it on the series a while ago, and I thought JPL actually did it better, and I'm a Chris fan. But somehow, again, when it got to the end of the song, I thought, "we're getting into Chris's register." Before that I thought it was... average."[12]
* May 24, 2006 - "Mystery" (duet with Live)o Theme: Finale+ Although Daughtry was no longer in the competition, he performed a duet with Live and participated in the Top 12 group songs and the guys medley.
