Watch: Lorde Teams Up With Disclosure For A Mash-Up Performance On The 2014 BRIT Awards

Lorde & Disclosure, 'Royals/White Noise'

Earlier today we got to see video of Beyoncé performing XO for the first time ever on the 2014 BRIT Awards which took place in London today and right now we get to see a mash-up performance by Lorde and Disclosure from The BRITs. Lorde performed a sexy remix version of her megahit song Royals and was followed by Disclosure‘s performance of their song White Noise. PERSONALLY, I would’ve loved it if Lorde had performed her current single Team (my fave song from her album) but I’m a big Lorde fan, so I’ll take another performance of Royals … I guess. I’m not entirely familiar with Disclosure but I do like White Noise. This mash-up performance turned out pretty well. Check out the video performance above and see what you think. Do you like?

Trent Reznor Calls The Grammy Awards ‘An Utter Waste Of Time’

"We weren't expecting ... that level of insult"

Late last month, as you may recall, Trent Reznor blasted the producers of The Grammy Awards for the way they treated his Nine Inch Nails performance at the close of the Grammy Awards this year. During NIN‘s finale performance (which also featured Lindsey Buckingham, Dave Grohl and Queens of the Stone Age), producers cut off the end of the supergroup’s performance so that they could air commercial ads. Reznor‘s response was, F***k you. In a new interview that Trent gave to promote NIN‘s upcoming tour of New Zealand, he talks at some length about the Grammy Awards debacle and he makes very clear that he will never perform on the Grammys ever again. The rest of the interview is really a great read … Reznor also talks about Beats Music, 40 unreleased demo songs that may one day see the light of day and he talks a bit about the musical score he is working on for the new David Fincher film Gone Girl. Click below to read a lot of great new information from the one and only Trent Reznor. More »

Lupita Nyong’o & Michael Fassbender Share A ‘Losers Selfie’ On Instagram


Altho actress Lupita Nyong’o didn’t win a BAFTA award, it looks like she had an amazing time at the awards show in London last night nonetheless. Lupita shared a few fun photos on her official Instagram profile from the BAFTAs last night, including a “losers selfie” that she snapped with her co-star and fellow BAFTA loser Michael Fassbender. BUT, because Lupita‘s film 12 Years A Slave was honored with the award for Best Film, she really can’t call herself a loser at all … she is a flawless queen, plain and simple. Don’t believe me? Have a look below. More »

Hugh Jackman Will Host The 2014 Tony Awards

NPH passes the torch back to Hugh

The Tony Awards have announced today that Tony-winning actor Hugh Jackman will host the 68th annual Tony Awards this June. As you may be well aware, actor Neil Patrick Harris has enjoyed a string of very successful hosting jobs for the Tonys in years past but because he will be starring in the new production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch this year, NPH is too busy to host the awards show. Therefore, the Tonys went with the next best person for the job. Click below to read the press release announcement regarding Hugh‘s upcoming gig as Tony Awards host. More »

Mariah Carey Brings Her HEAVING BOSOM To The BET Honors

You ain't ready for this (No, seriously)

Mariah Carey was among the performers at the taping of The BET Honors in Washington DC last night and as you can see below … Mimi was NOT playing around. Mariah busted out the sexiest low cut dress she could find so that she could minimally contain her overflowing assets for her live performance that people probably didn’t even listen to because she looked so good. Oh, who am I kidding … MC always brings the fire when she sings so she likely knocked everyone out both visually and aurally. Mariah Carey knows how to do sexy when she really wants to … and last night, SHE REALLY WANTED TO. Take a deep breath and then click below to see Mimi as she performed live at The BET Honors last night. More »

Watch: Rehearsal Video Shows How The Nine Inch Nails Grammy Awards Performance Should’ve Looked On TV

So. Damn. Good.
The way the performance was meant to be seen

Remember when Trent Reznor blasted Grammy producers for cutting off the Nine Inch Nails finale performance with Lindsey Buckingham, Queens of the Stone Age and Dave Grohl during the Grammy Awards last weekend? Well, right now we get to watch unedited, unaired rehearsal footage of the finale performance as it SHOULD HAVE aired during the telecast. During full dress rehearsals for the show, NIN et al. did a run thru of their performance (complete with LL Cool J intro) and you can watch that performance in full above. This is a great video, I hope you enjoy it. This is pretty much what we were supposed to see during the Grammy Awards last weekend. I guess better late than never.

Beyoncé Shares AMAZING Behind The Scenes Photos From Her Grammy Awards Performance Rehearsals

She doesn't *just* wake up this way

Last Sunday night, Beyoncé and hubby Jay Z opened the 56th Grammy Awards telecast show with a fabulous performance of their song Drunk In Love, taken from Bey‘s new album Beyoncé. Today we get to see a batch of really great photos shared by Beyoncé on her official website that were taken during rehearsals for her Grammy Awards performance. The photos were taken by photographer Robin Harper and are, I think, a really really cool look at the behind the scenes process that resulted in a stunning performance. Bey is fabulous and fierce but as these photos show, she doesn’t just wake up looking perfect. She puts in a lot of hard work to make looking perfect look easy.
