Ella Henderson may have not won the ninth season of The X-Factor, but the young singer has a powerful voice that comes straight from the soul. Born in Tetney, England, the 19-year-old singer finished in sixth place, but was largely considered to be a frontrunner for much of the broadcast. That hasn’t stopped her from heading to the top of the charts. After being signed to Syco Music (Simon Cowell’s record label), Henderson released her first single “Ghost,” which took top spot on the UK and Irish charts.

His new album, Listen, signals a new path for the producers. “I needed to create a new sound,” he said. “Music is all about cycles, about action and reaction, and there has been a reaction to EDM becoming the new pop.

Ricky Martin shows us that he hasn’t lost it in his new music video for his new single “Adios.” The men still have him going “loco loco” in his Latin-flavored song. The video, directed by Ethan Ladder, takes place in the Harvelle’s speakeasy in Long Beach, CA. Playing a sexy policeman, bartender, bouncer, mobster, and, of course, singer, Martin makes it hard for us to say adios to his sex appeal.
