The original Broadway cast recording of Tony Award winning musical “The Book of Mormon” made history this week, hitting #3 on the Billboard Hot 100. According to Billboard, it’s the highest charting Broadway cast album since “Hair” in 1969.

Meanwhile, making her own history with her album “21,” Adele returns to the #1 spot, her tenth nonconsecutive week in the coveted top position.

Pop legend Barry Manilow debuted his first collection of original tunes in 10 years this week. In “15 Minutes: Fame… Can You Take It?” the singer-songwriter explores the crazy ride of celebrity. And Neil Young released “A Treasure,” a 12-song live album recorded during his 1984-1985 U.S. tour with The International Harvesters. The album also includes five previously unreleased songs.

For this week's “411 On the Scene,” we caught up with Vince Neil of Motley Crue, who’s excited to hit the road this summer with Poison and the New York Dolls, and a star who has lent her voice to both stage and screen, Kristin Chenoweth. 

The “Glee” guest star talks about her recurring role, and what’s next in her multi-tasking career. “I just want to keep singing, because the acting is part of singing," she told FOX411. "The acting is singing, singing is an extension of speaking which is an extension of us. So I’ll keep doing that as long as people will have me… and probably even when they won’t.”

And finally, we spent time with 311 and talked to them out their latest project. Hear what they have to say about finding their unique sound in the studio.
