Nightfly's Music Video Week in Review 1/22/12 - Evanescence, MJ, J-Love, and more!

Nightfly lists his preferred picks among last week's newly released music videos.






Chasing The Matrix:
Nightfly's Music Video Week in Review  (week of 1/22/12)

Last week I mentioned the plentiful amount of new videos released, well this week the number remained about the same, if anything it grew. This is my first January tracking music video releases so I don't know if this is just the industry's normal cycle, or not? I'm not complaining in any event.

Before jumping into this week's new video pool I present a couple bonus videos for your viewing enjoyment. The first out-of-competition video is a Behind the Scenes clip (released 1/27) for Adam Lambert's upcoming, "Better Than I Know Myself."


Next up is a full performance preview of this Tuesday's upcoming Michael Jackson themed episode of Glee. This clip of Darren Criss and the cast singing the classic disco hit, "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'", was released last Thursday.
