Hear a peak, there a peak

Let’s overlook the erroneous hyphen and the misplaced period (which belongs before the closing quotation mark) and focus on the sneak peak in this blog on Yahoo! Music:

oprah shine 1

At least I understand this sentence, though I don’t understand what the apostrophe is doing in a simple plural:

oprah shine 2

pamela

Thanks, Terribly Write.
