Ralphie Report: Grammy awards full of surprises and predictability

Ralphie Report: Grammy awards full of surprises and predictability

The 59th GRrammys proved to be an interesting mix of the predictable and the unpredictable. Heading in to the night, you knew Adele was going to sweep the three major categories. The songstress took home all five gramophones that she was nominated for, including Record, Song and Album Of The Year. You also probably assumed […]

Ralphie Report: ‘Idol’s’ Jax is ready to take on the world

After spending her 2016 battling cancer and completing the New York City Marathon, “American Idol” alum Jax kicked off the new year with some new tunes. The New Jersey native, nee Jaclyn Miskanic, released an EP last Friday called “Funny.” Yes, she’s pretty lighthearted in person, but at times perhaps all she could was laugh […]

Ralphie Report: Keeping Ralphie on track with Idina

Ralphie Report: Keeping Ralphie on track with Idina

To say I struggled with this week’s column would be a bit of an understatement, but perhaps after I write this I’ll simply “let it go.” Last Wednesday, I found myself blinded by the lights of Times Square to cover a red carpet event with “Frozen” star Idina Menzel. The songstress made a name for […]

Ralphie Report: One Direction’s Niall Horan will miss Malia and Sasha Obama

Ralphie Report: One Direction’s Niall Horan will miss Malia and Sasha Obama

It definitely came as no surprise to long-time fans of One Direction and long-time listeners of my radio show that Niall Horan is a “massive” fan of President Barack Obama. Horan revealed his admiration for the First Family during a chat on my show back in 2012; the aforementioned quote attributed to the singer became […]

Ralphie Report: Miss America’s never-ending year

Ralphie Report: Miss America’s never-ending year

Sure, some women grow up with the dream of one day becoming Miss America – but how many of them also envision the crown’s travel schedule, which involves a different state every 48 hours? “I live in airports and in hotels out of my suitcase,” the current titleholder, Savvy Shields, told me on New Year’s […]

Ralphie Report: DNCE wants to spread joy, happiness in 2017

As the band prepares for its upcoming tour, which kicks off later this month, DNCE looks back on 2016 rather fondly. “Getting a VMA for Best New Artist, that’s really special for us,” was one of the first things lead singer Joe Jonas told me he’ll remember about the year, besides of course releasing the […]

Ralphie Report: A look back at 2016

Ralphie Report: A look back at 2016

As I was getting ready to submit the Ralphie Report, I felt a bit conflicted: this week’s column is usually a retrospective on the year in music, but how could you not help but simply look back at those we lost in 2016? An iconic trio of musicians in Prince, David Bowie and most recently […]

Ralphie Report: Louis Tomlinson and Bruno Mars on new hit singles and Wet Wipes

Louis Tomlinson is the latest One Direction band member to release music during the 1D-hiatus, but the single has resonated on a different level with the ever-passionate One Direction fandom. The 24-year-old teamed up with DJ/producer Steve Aoki for the song, “Just Hold On.” Tomlinson offered an emotional performance of the track on “The X-Factor” […]

Ralphie Report: The Chainsmokers aren’t slowing down

Ralphie Report: The Chainsmokers aren’t slowing down

It is impossible to look back on pop music in 2016 and not talk about The Chainsmokers. Alex Pall and Drew Taggart created two of the year’s biggest hits: the infectious “Don’t Let Me Down” that features 18-year-old Daya and “Closer,” an inescapable duet that Halsey assists on. “Don’t Let Me Down” was the most […]

Ralphie Report: We The Kings take on Broadway’s ‘Hamilton’

Ralphie Report: We The Kings take on Broadway’s ‘Hamilton’

It is no secret that “Hamilton” is still Broadway’s hottest, most-impossible-to-get ticket even without its original cast. And Travis Clark, lead singer of We The Kings, makes no secret of his successful ploy that ended up landing him far beyond the original intent of simply watching the show live. “I was like, ‘Hey if we […]
