Since releasing her debut CD in 2005, Carrie Underwood has sold more than 15 million albums, making her the best-selling "American Idol" in the U.S. She's accumulated 16 No. 1 singles, seven of which she co-wrote, and became the first country artist in history and the only "American Idol" winner ever to achieve 10 No. 1 singles from their first two albums. She is a five-time Grammy winner, a two-time Academy of Country Music Entertainer of the Year, a three-time Country Music Association and ACM Female Vocalist winner, and a proud member of the Grand Ole Opry. Underwood is current headlining her "Blown Away Tour" across North America promoting her platinum-selling album "Blown Away," which contains two No. 1 hit singles, "Good Girl" and the title track "Blown Away." Later this week she and Brad Paisley will co-host the "The 46th Annual CMA Awards." The CMA's will air live from Nashville's Bridgestone Arena on Thursday, November 1, at 8:00 p.m., ET on ABC.

Since her debut in 2000, P!nk (Alecia Moore) has released seven albums ("Can't Take Me Home," "M!ssundaztood," "Try This," "I'm Not Dead," "Funhouse," "Greatest Hits So Far!!!," "The Truth About Love"), sold over 40 million albums, 65 million singles (nearly 20 million digital tracks), over 1 million DVDs worldwide and has had 12 singles in the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart (three at No. 1). In addition, 15 of P!nk's singles have reached No. 1 in at least one or more countries. She is the recipient of three Grammy Awards, two Billboard Music Awards, five MTV Video Music Awards, two MTV Europe Awards, two People's Choice Awards and many more. P!nk's most recent effort, "The Truth About Love," debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 as well as in six other countries. The album marks P!nk's first No. 1 debut in the U.S. and a personal first week sales best. "The Truth About Love" produced the smash single "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)," which marks P!nk's 12th Top-10 hit on the Billboard Hot 100. P!nk will set off on a North American Tour in February 2013.

Pitbull has risen to become a global superstar as both a recording and performing artist. The Miami-native recently added to a long and growing list of hits with his first No. 1, "Give Me Everything." At the same time, his Planet Pit world tour sold out concerts in Mexico, Canada and Europe, before bringing the party to the United States, Japan and Australia. Pitbull's new single, "Don't Stop the Party," is gaining heavy momentum on the radio and video charts and will be featured on his upcoming "Global Warming" album on November 19, the highly anticipated follow-up to "Planet Pit," which earned critical acclaim and enjoyed commercial success with sales of more than 1.4 million albums and 18 million singles. "Don't Stop the Party" comes on the heels of Pitbull's 2 million-selling single, "Back in Time," the chart-topping anthem from the action-adventure-comedy "Men in Black 3." To complement his worldwide success as an artist, Pitbull is also a burgeoning businessman with his own line of premium, low-calorie vodka, Voli, equity partner in the iconic food franchise that shares his Miami roots, The New Miami Subs Grill, and a partnership with Sheets, the dissolvable energy strip. These entrepreneurial ventures are the latest for Pitbull, who has inked major sponsorship deals with blue-chip brands like Dr Pepper, Fiat and Bud Light.
