Demi Lovato Covers Adele’s “Hello”

There is nothing more that I can say other than that Demi absolutely SLAYED this cover! She absolutely has an insane voice but to be honest I was a little worried about her singing Adele. Not saying that Demi can’t handle singing a soulful song, it’s just Adele’s voice is insane.

Of course Demi came through and killed it though, like she always does. Her voice is out of this world and it seems like it is just getting better every single year.

So check it out and tell me what you think here!

Man Crush Monday: Tristan Wilds

Man Crush Monday this week goes out to none other than Tristan Wilds. Now I have been a big fan of Tristan Wilds for a while now, since before the Adele video! He was on the almost amazing reboot of ‘90210’ and now apparently has a rap career, but I was reminded of his beautiful face with the new video “Hello” by Adele.

I am just glad that this cutie is finally getting the attention that he deserves! On ‘90210’ he was one of the better actors on the show and he was also on the show ‘The Wire’ which as everyone knows was an incredible show. Did I ever watch it? No, I was far too young when it was around but hey, it got a ton of attention! It had to have been doing something right!

Seriously though, Tristan is an absolute babe. His smile is incredible, sexy tattoos, and I really like his speaking voice. Is that a weird thing to say? I would just like to listen to him read the phone book or something like that.

Let me know who you think next weeks Man Crush Monday should be here!

Adele Finally Returns With Comeback Single “Hello”

Listen Adele I know you’ve been busy having kids, being a wife, and making sure your vocals are at the top of their game but it’s about damn time! I mean this song is a long time coming, am I right? After cancelling half of her tour for ’23’ she just kind of disappeared for a while.

There was a part of me that worried because she was such a superstar then all of a sudden she was gone. I was convinced that there was no way Adele would be making a comeback, but here it is. “Hello” is amazing, hell anything Adele sings is amazing but I am obsessed with this song. The video is pretty great too, I mean it starts out with Adele talking on a flip phone. To all the younger readers, those were the phones we had that were indestructible but you couldn’t go online with them.

I will say her voice sounds a bit different but I don’t hate it. In fact I love it, I think that her tone in this song is absolutely magical.

Brava Adele, it’s been a while but the wait has been worth it that’s for sure.
