Yeah, that happened
Justin Bieber celebrated Memorial Day yesterday by popping by the W Hotel in Hollywood, CA last night to perform an impromptu concert for the lucky fans in attendance. JB showed himself to be a true fan of the ’90s group Boyz II Men by honoring them with his version of their hit ballad I’ll Make Love To You. To be honest, Bieber‘s vocals aren’t half bad. The music is loud but you can deffo hear that he’s singing marginally well. So, if you can take the sound of The Biebs telling YOU that he’ll make love to YOU then I think this video might be right up your alley. Click the embed above and have a listen.
Britney Spears performed her last Britney: Piece of Me show in Las Vegas this week before she breaks for the summer for a little hiatus. To celebrate her last show for a while, she invited model (and Toxic music video co-star) Tyson Beckford to perform on stage with her during her performance of Freakshow (you may recall that Nicole Ritchie is another celeb who performed Freakshow with Britney in Vegas last year). Click below to watch video of Britney and Tyson getting freaky in Las Vegas together and savor the moment … our dear Britney Spears won’t be performing in Vegas again until after the summer is over.

Last night I made my way up to Ventura, CA to see Courtney Love live in concert at the Majestic Theater. The night before, she performed in concert with Lana Del Rey at the Hollywood Bowl but since I saw LDR play the Hollywood Forever Cemetery last October and I doubt any LDR concert ever will surpass that show, I decided to take a pass and just see Courtney by herself in a much more intimate setting. C. Love has been sober for the past few years and its shown in her life performances. Her concert last night was so fun. She sounded great, she looked great and thank ye gods, she appeared stone cold sober and coherent! More »

Mimi's vocal strength continues to improve
On Sunday night, Mariah Carey performed a career-spanning mini-medley of her first single Vision of Love (1990) and her current single Infinity (2015) at the Billboard Music Awards. I, personally, thought Mariah sounded great … especially since she is recovering from a throat illness that forced her to cancel shows from the second week of her just-launched Las Vegas concert residency. Last night, Mimi performed VoL and Infinity again on Jimmy Kimmel Live in support of the release of her new album #1 to Infinity and as you can hear above, her vocal strength continues to improve. Mariah Carey has long ago proven herself to be one of the greatest voices of our generation so she really doesn’t have anything else to prove … but it’s nice when she delivers a strong performance to silence the haters. Listen to MC sing Vision of Love and Infinity above and see how a real elusive chanteuse gets the job done.
Vision of Lost Love
Mariah Carey was a featured performer during the 2015 Billboard Music Awards last night but before she performed a medley of her first single, Vision of Love (1990), and her new single, Infinity (2015), her Billboard Music Charts accomplishments over the years were celebrated … reminding us all that MC is truly one of the greatest pop singers living today. After Mimi did the damn thing on stage at the BMAs last night, she released a short teaser of the forthcoming music video for her single Infinity.

"All Around the World"
Britney Spears and her latest collaborator Iggy Azalea took to the stage during the 2015 Billboard Music Awards live in Las Vegas, NV tonight to perform their new single Pretty Girls for the first time. As you can see in the embed below, the ladies took some cues from their totally outrageously ’80s-themed music video for this live performance that is full of dance and FUN! You can tell that Britney is having a great time during this performance … and my love for this song grows every time I hear it. The performance is short but sweet but only because the song is short and sweet … a perfect pop confection to indulge in again and again. I love!! More »
Ri Ri to the Rescue
NBC aired the 40th season finale of Saturday Night Live last night with funnyman Louis C.K. as host and Rihanna as musical guest. Very, very unfortunately, the episode as a whole was a total snooze. Not even Louis C.K.‘s usual brilliance was enough to make last night’s episode of SNL all that great. BUT, there was a shining ray of sunshine that came from the season finale ep of SNL that is worth talking about. Rihanna performed her new songs Bitch Better Have My Money and American Oxygen on last night’s show and she did a really great job of injecting life in last night’s snoozefest. Click below to watch both performances and enjoy! I’m telling you, these Rihanna performances are the only things worth mentioning from last night’s season finale episode of Saturday Night Live.

"Who's going to Vegas with me?"
Earlier this week, Jennifer Lopez formally announced that she will be the next pop star to take up concert residency in Las Vegas starting next year and today on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, she delivered a performance of her greatest hits that gives us a taste of what we can expect when we see her show at the Planet Hollywood Hotel and Casino starting in January 2016. J. Lo performed a medley of her biggest hits with enough Vegas flavor that you’d be hard pressed to see this performance and not want to rush right out and get tix to see Lopez in LV next year. Wow. I was lucky enough to see Jennifer Lopez in concert a few years ago and I can assure you, La Diva Latina KILLS it on the stage. I am really looking forward to seeing her in Vegas next year … are you?
After just 1 week, Mimi is already canceling shows
Last week, Mariah Carey kicked off her concert residency in Las Vegas to mixed reviews (including one scathing review by The New York Times that really went in on the elusive chanteuse). She performed a string of shows over the weekend and, as fas as I could tell, did a great job entertaining her fans. Last night, Mimi was due to kick off her second weekend of performances … but she was forced to cancel the show due to illness. Hours before she was due to take the stage, a sign was put up alerting ticket-holders that her show last night was cancelled — not postponed — cancelled. Around the aborted showtime, Mariah posted a statement on her official Instagram profile explaining her reason for canceling the show. Click below to read what she had to say. More »
