Wider web: Simon Cowell is looking for new stars from the 'YouTube Generation'

For Simon Cowell, TV is not enough: The impresario's endless star-seeking is going global, on YouTube

Album review: Josh Groban, All That Echoes (Reprise)

The Groban Phenomenon seems unstoppable – All That Echoes crashed into the American charts at No 1, and will likely follow suit here too – though for all his personable self-deprecation, the blend of operatic pop on which his reputation is built seems strangely thin and insipid.
