Taylor Swift is a country music sensation, a teenage godsend to a beleaguered music industry, and the hands-down winner of "The Star-Spangled Banner" singing competition during the Phillies' World Series sweep at Citizens Bank Park. (Sorry, Patti LaBelle and John Oates.) The Wyomissing, Pa., native's self-titled 2006 album has sold 3.5 million copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan. And, speaking from Los Angeles last week, Swift was in the midst of a promotional blitz that finds her strutting alongside hair-metal band Def Leppard on CMT Crossroads, hitting Late Show With David Letterman last night, and appearing today for a full hour on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

CAMP ROCK 2: THE FINAL JAM. 8 tonight, Disney Channel. LOS ANGELES - Demi Lovato didn't have her own TV show, "Sonny With a Chance," when she starred in the 2008 cable film "Camp Rock. " Her co-stars, the Jonas Brothers, were established musicians but had little acting experience. That changed with "Camp Rock," a summer-and-sun answer to "High School Musical. " The Disney Channel movie was the top-rated cable program in 2008 with more than 10 million total viewers. It was an even bigger hit with teens, tweens and kids.

YES, THE YOUNG girls (ages 6 to 16) will be out in force, screaming their lungs out, when the Jonas Brothers land at the Wachovia Center Thursday for the first of two sold-out shows. One reviewer who caught their Chicago concert this week likened the din to airplane engines revving at O'Hare International Airport. Attending parents? Have your earplugs ready. But the Jonas Brothers are not the typical boy band they'd like us to believe. Their new, fourth album, "Lines, Vines and Trying Times," and their World Tour 2009, feature sophisticated horn charts and violins "adding things that haven't been heard in pop music," said middle brother, Joe Jonas, in a pre-tour interview.

With her varied dating experience ( Joe Jonas , Taylor Lautner , John Mayer , Jake Gyllenhaal ) and her penchant for mining her breakups for songs, Taylor Swift is verily an expert.
