Quiz: Guess the band minus the frontman! , There's probably a song featuring the musical talents of Jonny Buckland, Guy Berryman, and Will Champion on your MP3 player — you just don't know it.

"Um, who the hell are those guys?" you might be asking. Well, they're the non-Chris Martin members of Coldplay, and despite being part of one of the biggest bands on the planet you likely wouldn't recognise them if you passed them in the street.

(Unless, of course, you're some sort of Coldplay uber-fan; if this is the case, please refrain from leaving a snotty "I can't believe you don't know who Jonny, Guy and Will are, YOU MUSICAL PHILISTINE"-type comment.)

What other megabands become unrecognisable once you eliminate their frontman? Or are you such a music genius you can pick a group even without their lead singer? Read the full post to test your knowledge in our quiz!

This could get ugly: Taylor Swift and Kanye West to reunite? Sparks might fly if Taylor Swift is reunited with her nemesis Kanye West in the upcoming episode of Saturday Night Live.

Perez sez the producers of the long-running sketch-comedy are frantically trying to book a "surprise" cameo from Kanye when Taylor hosts the show this week.

Yeah, that's a great plan — giving Kanye yet another opportunity to upstage poor Taylor.

Actually, the reunion would probably turn out to be pretty boring — Taylor would be all polite and forgiving, and Kanye would be all apologetic and humble (or as least as humble as a bighead like Kanye can get). Snooze! I want blood!

Australian Idol: Top 5 - contestants' choice You know what's kind of ironic? That the judges are always getting stuck into the contestants about their song choices... and then the actual producers go and pick The Script's tune 'Before the Worst' for this week's group routine. Look, I have nothing against The Script — but as an opening number for a reality karaoke show, they suck.

Speaking of Idol producers making bad decisions: the theme of this episode is "Contestants' Choice", a revelation that'd make me furious if I were actually emotionally invested in this season. Couldn't they have picked an exciting, original theme? How about Mash-ups, or Duets? Or even something generic like R&B or Beatles or anything that isn't completely boring? Seriously, it's like the producers are determined to make the show as bland as possible this year.

Anyway. The next 10 minutes is devoted to a boring recap of last week's episode (which only serves as a reminder that Liza Minnelli won't be around to liven things up this week). I tune back in for the elimination: James, Kate and Stan are in the bottom three. Dicko predicts James will go, but the kid is safe — thank god — and Kate is booted.

MusicFIX's verdict on all 10 performances in the full recap.

Exclusive: sneak peek of the Michael Jackson concert that never was Michael Jackson's death suddenly seems a million times sadder after watching this behind-the-scenes footage of his concert rehearsals. It's clear that the concerts — which would've been staged in London from July '09 — would have been effing awesome.

Madonna's video 'Hung Up' voted least sexy clip ever Poor Madonna — she goes to all that effort to keep her body lean and mean, and people still slag her off her being unsexy.

According to a poll conducted by Muzu.tv, the clip for Madge's 2005 hit 'Hung Up' is the least sexy music video of all time. Of all time! That's harsh... but fair. When you flash your hot pink leotard-clad crotch at the camera, you deserve whatever criticism you get.

Good Charlotte confirmed for Australian Idol Wow, this is really shaping up to be a bang-up year for Australian Idol guest stars: Network Ten has confirmed that Good Charlotte are the latest celebs to join the fray.

Brothers Benji and Joel Madden will act as mentors and guest judges in the episode set to air on November 1.

The theme o' the week will be "The Noughties" — appropriate, given that's the decade when Gold Charlotte hit the big-time. Each of the four remaining Idols will perform two songs during the two-hour show.

Australian Idol: Top 6 - stage and screen ZOMG IT'S LIZA MINNELLI. I can't believe they convinced her to be a judge on Australian Idol. What a classy broad — Marcia is going to be completely out-diva'd tonight.

She opens the show with a performance of 'Cabaret' that is just on another level. I can't even begin to describe it, partly because I still can't quite believe I'm seeing Liza Minnelli on our little show.

While I'm blinking the stars out of my eyes, Andrew G introduces the bottom three: Kate, Hayley and Kim. Kate is safe first, leaving Hayley in the bottom two — which is kind of a surprise. Luckily she's safe, and Kim is (finally) outta here.

The theme of this episode is "stage and screen", meaning the Idols can sing any song that's ever been used in any movie or musical. Which is pretty much every song.

MusicFIX's verdict on the top six singers in the full post.
