Is Gwen Stefani a good fit for 'The Voice'? -- POLL

The Voice has had its fair share of megastar mentors, starting with original quartet Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine, and Blake Shelton. And the reality contest has been able to keep up its twice-a-year schedule by cycling out some of those judges with the equally star-powered Shakira and Usher.

So it comes as no surprise that Gwen Stefani might be the next superstar to join the NBC show. TMZ reports that it’s a done deal, while The Hollywood Reporter says the No Doubt singer is simply in talks, but NBC wouldn’t confirm the news when EW reached out for comment.

Whether the addition pans out and Stefani indeed replaces Aguilera in season 7 — which begins taping in June, airs in the fall, and includes another new judge in Pharrell Williams — let’s talk about what we think of the idea. There’s no question that she has an impressive career, both with No Doubt and as a solo artist, but how well do we know her personality? The Voice panel has thrived on the dynamic between the mentors, most notably with Blake and Adam’s bromance and Christina’s tension with the others. Where will Gwen fit in? It’s also worth noting that Stefani has worked with one of her potential chair-mates: Pharrell (with The Neptunes) produced her breakout solo single “Hollaback Girl,” and she contributed vocals to his 2005 solo single “Can I Have It Like That.”

'House of Cards': Let's talk all of season 2

House-of-Cards.jpg

Did you spend all of Presidents Day weekend breathlessly binge-watching the second season of House of Cards? Good — because so did I. (It’s what George Washington would have wanted.) And after coming up for air, fortifying myself with a few racks of slow-cooked ribs, and spending way too long Googling variations on “fluffy pet from the future and/or outer space” — seriously, there is no way Cashew is actually a guinea pig — I’m finally ready to process what I just saw.

Help us solve the mystery! Who's your favorite Sherlock Holmes? -- POLL

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle first introduced Sherlock Holmes to the world in his 1887 novel A Study in Scarlet. Since then, the London-based detective best known for his logic, use of disguises, and overall ability to solve just about anything has been portrayed on screens both big and small. From Basil Rathbone’s 1930′s version of the character, featuring his signature pipe, to Benedict Cumberbatch’s recent adaptation, every Sherlock has a little something different to offer its audience.

The music for “O Holy Night” was composed in 1847 and set to the French poem “Minuit, chrétiens” (opera singer Enrico Caruso recorded the French version in 1916). The lyrics we know today were written by a Unitarian minister based on the French text.

Producer David Foster ushered the song into pop music with his 1993 rendition for Michael Crawford, which might explain why our six favorites are from 1994 until now. Listen to all six (plus a bonus!) and make your pick. Yonder breaks a new and glorious vote!

Only at Christmastime are people begging for the temperature to drop below freezing: Written in 1945, “Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!” is a cozy song about curling up by the fire, safe from the winter weather outside. For some, it evokes the image of snacking on a warm bowl of buttery popcorn as a blanket of white covers their yard; others think of Bruce Willis fighting off German terrorists (more on that below).

Whatever your preference, we’ve got the version for you — and since we’ve no place to go, make your voice heard below!
