Ricky Martin made his return to Broadway in a reworked - more authentically Latin version - of “Evita.” The show got extra pizzazz from the singer, whose entrance was applauded so loudly that it nearly stifled his opening lines. "I was begging for the energy of the audience, and that's what we got tonight," he said after the show. "It was a beautiful evening." Last time Martin was on the Broadway stage was in 1996 in "Les Miserables," in which he played Marius. Since then, Martin has released five albums, had twin sons via a surrogate, and came out as a gay man.


Kelly Clarkson, Robin Thicke, Lionel Richie and Jennifer Nettles have been picked to search for musical protégés on Duets, which will premiere in the US this year. The superstars will head out across America to find two singers to be their duet partners. Each week, the celebrity and one of their charges will take the stage and perform in front of a live studio audience. By the end of the competition, one singer will win a recording contract with Hollywood Records.
