X FactorWhile so many out there are focusing solely on the Academy Awards Sunday night (and it’s understandable), there is some other breaking news worth sharing now: the first listen of “X Factor” USA judge Demi Lovato’s first single “Heart Attack.”

The song was originally expected to not be available to listen to for a little while longer, but it was surprisingly released this weekend via Ryan Seacrest’s official site. (Listen to it here.) The clip that we heard in the official teaser for the song was from the very start of the song, and the song actually sounds a little bit different than we expected … but not in a bad way at all. This song actually has the potential to be one of Demi’s biggest hits yet: it’s super-catchy, well-promoted (at least thus far), and has enough vocal theatrics to remind everyone out there just how killer of a voice Demi has.

This single will likely not start impacting radio in a big way until next month, but we’re curious to see how it fares. Demi’s status for “The X Factor” season 3 is currently unclear; while she’s expressed that she would like to return, she is having to decide between touring and filming the show in the fall.

Carly shoots a new cover – For those of you with a hankering for some Carly Rose Sonenclar news, it was also revealed last week that she took part in a photo shoot for the teen publication Justine Magazine. We’ve been off for most of the weekend, and you may have already heard both this new along with the revelation that she is a part of the Syco Music family.

So what is coming up next? Basically, she and Simon Cowell’s company are simply going to look to attach her to a label. Sony Music and Epic Records are the two likely candidates, given that they are the most frequently-used labels for Syco over the past two years in America. However, don’t rule out some other possibilities. (We’ll have more once we know more on this end.)

So what’s the next step? If you want to check out some new videos featuring both Carly as well as Fifth Harmony, be sure and check out the story over at the link here.
