>>> back now with a look at the top songs, hollywood buzz and videos, our top of the morning round-up and jason kennedy from e! news is here to take us through it.
>> good morning to you, natalie.
>> topping the charts on itunes, and i love this song, "home" by phillip philips, it's still top of the charts.
>> six months. this is crazy. got a lot of play during the olympics. the best-selling coronation song on " american idol ." couldn't happen to a nicer guy. the fact that we're talking about all these months later is still very impressive.
>> it's a great message, great song. and he is such a nice guy . he was here this week. i think just yesterday, as a matter of fact. so good to see him on the top still. number two on itunes, locked out of heaven by bruno mars, another guy not slowing down.
>> something like 25 million views on youtube. whatever this guy touches turns to gold or in his case platinum, i guess you would say. it's his first single of his upcoming album drops on december 11. and he's got a cult following, young guy, 27 years old, just the beginning for him.
>> so talented. a song and a group i haven't really heard of but they're number three, the lumineers.
>> i've played this for a lot of friends, they're a folk trio, and this has been out a few months, people are catching on. it's catchy, it's different, try it out.
>> all right.
>> i'm listening to it now.
>> "ho hey."
>> okay. sounds perfect. top hollywood stories, and i'm loving this because i'm a huge fan. nbc is now talking about doing an americanized version, right?
>> yeah, called "the guilded age ," a working title, from the producer and writer, it's an american version, takes place in 19th century new york city . it could be on the air as early as fall 2013 . but these period dramas, these period pieces as you know --
>> takes a long time to shoot.
>> absolutely. and if they're done properly, they can be a huge hit. i think this has the makings of a hit.
>> we do love it, though. let's talk about top movies now and "breaking dawn" still at the top of the box office . but this weekend, there's a new challenger in brad pitt .
>> mr. brad pitt coming to a theater near you "killing them softly," nothing like his last movie "moneyball," something where he plays basically a mob enforcer , killing a lot of people. it's a crime drama , a great cast in it, as well. so definitely check this out. early reviews are in, people are loving it.
>> loving it, loving it.
>> he has been impressive acting and everything. great. okay. next, viral videos and you've got to love the office prank. and this is the black friday employee prank.
>> we know.
>> this is number one on youtube, right?
>> let's be honest, how crazy are black fridays? especially people are just mobbing the stores. these guys dress up like store employees --
>> at target.
>> and prank the customers. this poor lady, why is this man putting all my things in this cart? and then all of a sudden he goes in there and asks the lady if she can push him around. unsuspected customers, they have no idea what's going on.
>> i guess if you have a red shirt and khakis you too can apply for that job.
>> 8 million views on that.
>> that's amazing. and lastly, we showed this a little bit earlier in the morning gangnam style, this is a house, once again, that has gone "gangnam style" for the holidays in austin, texas, as you see choreographed with the lights and everything.
>> 25,000 lights. can you imagine being the neighbor? they're doing it again.
>> and looks like they do have neighbors close by.
>> it's got 1 million views, doesn't have 840 million views like the music video . i was hoping for a cameo but it didn't happen. that's kind of crazy. i feel bad for the neighbors.
>> and that electric bill is not going to be great either. thanks so much, jason kennedy , as always, great job.
