In a marketing stunt that could have been dreamed up by shopping mall pop queen Tiffany and Internet savvy political operative Joe Trippi, singer-songwriter Avril Lavigne this spring will take part in a "flash-mob" concert tour. The appearances - to be held in shopping malls - are part of the publicity blitz surrounding her next record, Under My Skin, which will be released in late May. "Flash mobs," popular last summer among hipsters and computer geeks, are rooted in Internet culture where blogging and electronic message boards rule.

Here's how it works now: Contestants have survived the Blind Auditions and weeks of Battle Rounds, just to make it to this moment - the Knockouts. The rules are no steals, no saves, choose your own song, choose the right song and compete against your own teammate in the sudden death round, which leaves each coach with four contestants who will move on to the live playoffs. Sounds simple, right? Did I mention the part about performing the song in front of the audience and your teammate?

July is shaping up to be the cruelest month for Avril Lavigne. Over the past two weeks, the pop princess' carefully crafted image as the anti-Britney Spears - that is, a chart-topping ingenue who writes her own songs, spits at paparazzi and has shaped her own spiky-yet-vulnerable image - has come under attack on multiple fronts. In a lawsuit made public last week, the 22-year-old Canadian superstar is being sued for copyright infringement. She's accused of plagiarizing a substantial part of "I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend," a song by '70s new wave group the Rubinoos, for her hit "Girlfriend."

Which songs are you dying to hear - and which are played out?  Z104.3's Jackson Blue weighs in with his handy Heat Meter. GETTIN' HOT: “Tonight Tonight,” Hot Chelle Rae The first big hit from these Nashville guys goes Top 5 in the country this week. I still know very little about them. Wikipedia knows roughly the same, so that's that. WARMING UP: “Take Over Control,” Afrojack Great dance song with a crazy, driving beat. I'm pretty sure Z104.3 was playing this song when the earthquake hit. Coincidence?
