Because, sometimes you just need new holiday songs...
Atlanta lawyer and winning Jeopardy contestant, Laura Ashby has the internet freaking out. Why? It's all in how she speaks.
"I grew up watching it and playing it with my dad," said Ashby. She had taken a 50 question test months ago and received an email from the show last spring asking her to audition in Savannah. There she played a couple of mock games and took another test. Not expecting anything from it, she got the call from producers asking her to be on the show back in August, she was excited, "I was just stunned and very excited - and immediately stressing out thinking 'I've got to study now.'"
On her first win, which aired on Friday, she answer all 18-questions correctly winning her $18, 401.
So what's the buzz all about? Why is social media blowing up about this random Jeopardy contestant?
...to the record they once held: "Most albums sold in one week" according to Nielson Soundscan as of 2000 with "No Strings Attached." Their sophomore release sold 2.416M copies in it's first 7 days and has stayed the largest selling release in it's first week up until today. Today, Adele takes reign. In it's first 3 official days, Adele's latest release "25" has sold over 2.433M copies in the US alone. The albums iTunes pre-order sales were at 900,000 copies on Friday alone!
So, as NSync says "Bye Bye Bye" to their record holding, Adele says "Hello" as the phenomenon she is.

Macklemore is one who loves to have fun, which we've wintessed with Thrift Shop and Downtown, but he also is very into spreading awareness about subjects he is passionate about, like with Same Love. This time it's about a friend who overdosed due to a prescription pill addiction. This might not be an upflifting subject, but watching Macklemore & company push something they're passionate about and creating awareness on a subject that doesn't get the headlines it needs - amazing.
Ellen is always one that comes up with the game that no one else would really try with some of the biggest names. With One Direction, it was Never Have I Ever. Harry Styles wasn't enjoying it.
