SPOTLIGHT: Looking back at the phenomenon "American Idol" as it enters its final season.

Do you hear what I hear? Michael Bublé’s newest album surely rings in holiday cheer.

The album, appropriately titled “Christmas,” has 15 tracks on it, with three additional bonus tracks. The best way to describe the album — classic.

Most of the songs are Bublé’s own versions of holiday classics, and he doesn’t do much to switch them up. But his unique voice and style of music make the classics new again. Listeners will enjoy their favorite songs from their childhood with Bublé’s strong vocals and touch of jazz backing them up.

The THON Band Bash will determine which local band will get the chance to help THON dancers remain energized through next month’s 46-hour marathon.

The Interfraternity/Panhellenic Dance Marathon will host a battle of the bands at 6:30 tonight. Admission to the event is free.

The six participating bands will be judged via crowd response and by the THON entertainment captains.

Secretary of Defense Robert Gates and the popular MC Nicki Minaj have been chosen by mtvU as the Man and Woman of the Year for their efforts to reach out to the community and make differences that not only affect college students, but the nation as a whole.

Secretary Gates, according to a mtvU press release, had been pushing for the “overturn of the controversial ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ policy” within the past year. Recently, his work and efforts were acknowledged when the policy was repealed in Congress on Saturday and was signed into effect Tuesday.

“We spend a lot of time in the military talking about integrity and honor,” Gates said in a C-SPAN Pentagon briefing. “A policy that requires people to lie about themselves somehow seems to me fundamentally flawed.”

Finally, all us “Barbies” and “Ken Barbs” — a.k.a. Nicki Minaj fans — get what we have been waiting for.

This year Nicki Minaj fans have been more excited for “Pink Friday” than Black Friday. “Pink Friday” is the much anticipated debut album from the popular female MC, and it shows some of the many sides of her.

The album also features a set of good collaborations that showcase Minaj’s ability to work with others — even though we have seen that time and time again with countless other Minaj collabs on other artists’ albums.

Tonight, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc., will host a DJ Supernova concert -- and while admission is free, members said getting the word out about the March of Dimes Foundation is priceless.

"This philanthropy is so special to us, because it's for the kids and their families, and we feel that the kids are the future," said Sharae Fulton (senior-biology), treasurer for Zeta Phi Beta.

The event will be held at 8 p.m. in the Paul Robeson Cultural Center's Heritage Hall and donations will be accepted at a table outside of the event.
