Alice Cooper Lets His Little Monster Out
Alice Cooper once referred to Lady Gaga as the female version of himself. And over the weekend at Bonnaroo 2012, the legendary rocker channeled his inner monster to cover the pop star’s hit, “Born This Way”.

The rocker, who recently followed up his memorable appearance in 1992′s Wayne’s World with a cameo in Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows, surprised concertgoers with the song that came at the tail end of his 90-minute set. However, he put his own hard rock spin to Gaga’s Madonna sound-alike, including personalized lyrics about his upbringing: “Called myself Alice / surprised my dad,” the erstwhile Vincent Furnier sang. “He just didn’t understand.”

The crowd rocked and cheered along with the performance that went into the early morning. And though Lady Gaga didn’t appear at the music festival herself, Cooper brought out a giant “FrankenGaga” inspired by Mother Monster—blond wig, caution tape and all.

Ke$ha And Alice Cooper Rock Out To “School’s Out” In Oslo

There was a real meeting of the sexy last night in Oslo, when Alice Cooper shock-rocked Ke$ha’s fans at her Get Sleazy tour stop by joining her midway through the “Blow” minx’s rendition of “School’s Out.” You gotta love the girl in the clip below who starts screaming once the music legend (we mean Alice, kiddies) steps on stage. We’re not sure if she’s thrilled because she actually recognizes him, or if she’s just plain scared because he looks like…well, Alice Cooper.

‘American Idol’: Lee DeWyze Wins, Simon Says Goodbye And, Oh, The Performances!

So how do you feel, American Idolators, after Lee DeWyze clinched the Season 9 crown in what Ryan Seacrest declared was a narrow two percent difference in amount of votes? Our poll in the right sidebar shows that the majority of you were supporting Crystal Bowersox. Personally, we were supporting the awesomeness that was Daryl Hall and John Oates performing “You Make My Dreams”! (Hey, it’s better than Lee’s lackluster cover of “Beautiful Day”—which is now available on iTunes, BTW.) After the jump: we’ve got all the performances of the night—Janet! Alanis! Carrie Underwood! Bret Michaels! GENERAL LARRY PLATT and WILLIAM HUNG!!!—and, in case you missed it, the final moments when Lee won this season of American Idol.

Statler And Waldorf Prepare Their Best Balcony Critiques For “Muppets Remastered”

The beloved motley crew known as the Muppets will continue its curious hookups with the pop-music world next year with the release of Muppets Remastered, a covers album on which artists of today will cover Muppets-warbled tunes of yore. According to a Muppets fansite two tracks on the comp have been announced: Weezer will pay homage to its music-video co-stars with their take on “The Rainbow Connection,” while the Fray is going to take on “Mahna Mahna” (which I fear will have the unfortunate side effect of putting poor old Rowlf to sleep). I guess it wouldn’t be too far of a stretch to think that the always-synergistic Lady GaGa will somehow be involved—perhaps she will sing, and perform a water ballet, to “Miss Piggy’s Fantasy”, and thus spark a big Lady-on-Miss row?

Me, I just hope they figure out a way to bring Alice Cooper back into the fold.
