'Hedwig' walked away with 4 awards last night
Neil Patrick Harris took his wig out of its box for his performance of the song Sugar Daddy from his Broadway musical production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch during the telecast of the 2014 Tony Awards last night. Hedwig walked away with 4 Tony Awards last night, including a trophy for NPH, one for his co-star Lena Hall (Featured Actress) and one for the musical overall for Best Musical Revival.

A lot of things went down on the 2014 Billboard Music Awards tonight but the only thing that people will really be talking about tomorrow … and for days after … was the stunning performance by Hologram Michael Jackson. You may recall that back in 2012, we first heard that a hologram version of Michael Jackson was being produced for a possible world tour, inspired by the success that Hologram Tupac enjoyed at the Coachella Music Festival earlier that year. Tonight, at long last, Hologram Michael Jackson was able to perform live and I have to admit … it put on a really amazing performance. Click the embed above to watch Hologram Michael Jackson perform the song Slave to the Rhythm and marvel at how surprisingly clever this performance turned out. What do YOU think of this performance? Would YOU pay to see Hologram Michael Jackson on tour?
Neil Patrick Harris FTW!
The nominations for the 2014 Tony Awards were announced in NYC a short time ago and the musical productions Hedwig and the Angry Inch and A Gentlemen’s Guide to Love and Murder lead the way with the most nominations this year (Hedwig nabbed 8 noms, Gentlemen’s Guide nabbed 10 noms). Hedwig star Neil Patrick Harris, unsurprisingly, garnered a Tony nom for the Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Musical and, IMHO, is the person to beat for the award. Other stars like Bryan Cranston, Idina Menzel and Cherry Jones as well as other productions like Aladdin, Les Miserablés and Twelfth Night managed to score Tony noms today as well.

The World Premiere
Earlier this month we learned that pop newcomer Ariana Grande has teamed up with Aussie rapper Iggy Azalea for her new single Problem, the first from her forthcoming sophomore album. A few days later, we got our first listen of the song when Ariana shared a snippet of music on Instagram. The song isn’t due for official release until tomorrow but she did world premiere the song last night in a live performance at The Radio Disney Music Awards. Sporting a pair of cute glitter Mickey Mouse ears, Ariana performed Problem in full (Iggy Azalea did not perform with her, tho). The song features the same horny horns saxophone sound that Paula Abdul utilized in her song Vibeology way back in 1991 so, duh, I love it. Check out Ariana‘s live performance of Problem above.

I love Kylie Minogue so much. I have loved her since her debut album Kylie was released way back in 1998 when I would play the cassette over and over and over until I wore it out and had to replace it with another. I still love Kylie very much. Her new album Kiss Me Once is a good album but I’m kind of bummed that it’s not a great album (I feel the exact same way about Britney Spears‘s most recent album Britney Jean). Earlier this month, we got to see the lyric video for the second single from Kiss Me Once, the Pharrell produced song I Was Gonna Cancel. Last night in Australia, Kylie performed I Was Gonna Cancel at The Logie Awards and as you can see in the video above, it was just an OK performance. Actually, it was a meh performance. I want to love the song so much but it’s just not a hit single for me. The song sounds much more exciting when it’s remixed by The Presets:
Right? Isn’t this a much better version of the song? Still, I love Kylie and I hope she is able to do great things this this single and her new album. This performance just leaves me wanting more. I hope we get more soon.
I mean, why not?
Earlier we saw video of Zac Efron getting shirtless to accept his Best Shirtless Performance award at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards Sunday night and right now, we get to see a batch of photos of, well, Zac Efron getting shirtless to accept his Best Shirtless Performance award at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards. So many photos were snapped of shirtless Zac on stage that it would be a shame not to share them. Now you can watch video of shirtless Zac or just look at photos of shirtless Zac to your hearts’ content. Never has Zac Efron been more deserving of an award in his entire career. Congrats, sir. Congrats.
A Perfect Match
Despite the fact that neither one of them was nominated for an award and the fact that their song has nothing to do with movies in any way, Eminem and Rihanna performed their hit song The Monster tonight on the MTV Movie Awards. As you can see above, Em and Ri Ri kinda slayed the awards show with their killer performance, giving fans a taste of what they might expect when the pair perform their 3 city tour later this year.

And he did so SHIRTLESS
Praise BE to the voting academy responsible for handing out the MTV Movie Awards this year because they have RIGHTLY selected actor Zac Efron as the recipient of this year’s award for Best Shirtless Performance for his work in That Awkward Moment. After he was handed his Golden Popcorn trophy, presenter Rita Ora ripped off Zac‘s shirt as he accepted his award.

"You know, I'm starting to wonder"
After she famously fell during the Academy Awards telecast last year and then again on the Oscars red carpet this year, some people are starting to believe that Jennifer Lawrence‘s clumsy/stumbly behavior is not genuine. Chief among the folks who believe J. Law‘s behavior to be an act is Jared Leto, who has gotten to spend a lot of time around Jennifer during awards season this year. In new comments made by Leto, he makes clear that he is suspicious of Jennifer‘s clumsy behavior. More »
Blue sings the cutest 'Surfbort' you'll ever hear
Remember early last month when we got to see that collection of Beyoncé photos that were snapped during rehearsals for the Grammy Awards this year? Yeah, well, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet. Video of Bey‘s Grammy Awards rehearsal has made its way online that is just TOO ADORABLE for its own good. Bey performs Drunk in Love in its entirety (with a guy standing in for Jay Z) and at the end of the video, we can hear Blue Ivy singing Surfbort!!!!! And if that wasn’t cute enough, Blue also offers up a Hi, Mommy as well. People, prepare do die from cuteness overload. More »
