The Sound Of Music with Julie Andrews. One of the many movies of my childhood. Like, for real. And it’s getting some sort of live remake on NBC… which is fine! I’m fine with that! Not sure if I’ll be tuning in… but I’m fine with it. And although I haven’t listened to much Carrie Underwood lately, I understand that she’s crazy talented and well-respected so this can’t be too bad of an idea… right? Click inside to learn more!
All I Want for Xmas is Mimi
Mariah Carey and others were on hand in NYC last night to film live performances that will be broadcast on NBC tonight for the Xmas Tree lighting in Rockefeller Center. As you can see below, Mimi BUSTED out her very festive best outfits for the occasion. We will all get to see MC in action on the TV special later tonight but you can get a sneak peek of what’s to come by checking out the photos below. More »

The TV Guide
Last night I made my way to Central SAPC in Santa Monica, CA to see my girl Hustle Roses perform her first solo concert ever! As you may recall, I was able to preview last night’s show when I went to her rehearsal last Saturday night and at that time, I knew she was ready for her show. What I saw last night just blew me AWAY! I was impressed during rehearsals, I was absolutely wowed during last night’s live performance. I snapped some photos and shot some video, which you can check out below. More »

Free of All Flaws
Earlier today we saw a really FUN performance from the American Music Awards last night (as well as a very un-fun performance) but right now we get to check out one of my absolute favorite performances of the night. Kelly Clarkson performed a medley of her greatest hits that not only reminds us all how fantastic her music is but is great promo for the release of her first ever greatest hits compliation Greatest Hits — Chapter 1. Check out the video above and marvel at how lucky we are to have Kelly Clarkson among us.
So, Nicki Minaj hit the stage last night to perform her new jam Freedom. We first heard the song a little while back and I was kinda feeling it, which is why I was excited to see how she would perform it on stage. Now, truthfully, the song is a more reflective piece… but I still was hoping one of the BIGGEST stars alive would have come up with something better than standing around singing, then walking over to a bench, then sitting on the bench singing, then standing up to finish singing. Like, she barely moved, lol! Okay, maybe I’m being hard on her. She moves a little. I dunno what was going on. There’s also this winter wonderland theme popping off; it’s weird. Peep the video for more! Are you feeling Nicki‘s performance? The choir was great, but choirs are always great! She coulda came harder, IMO!
Sidenote: PITNBR JCZ, I just saw your comment and yes, I did watch the first segment of Nicki‘s new reality thing and yes, it was horrifying, disturbing, and disappointing for ALL of the reasons you specified.
Hammer Time is The ONLY Acceptable Way to Enjoy 'Gangnam Style'
Last week we saw video of Madonna on stage with Korean pop sensation Psy performing his massive worldwide hit Gangnam Style and at the time, I thought it was the only acceptable way to enjoy the somewhat annoying song. Today, I stand corrected. Last night, during the American Music Awards, Psy performed Gangnam Style to close the show … but midway thru his performance he brought MC Hammer on stage to mash-up his song with Hammer‘s 2 Legit 2 Quit. Folks, as much as I don’t love the Gangnam Style song, this mash-up performance is AMAZING! Utterly and Truly. Check out the video above to see for yourselves. I know we gave Justin Bieber major grief for his silly baggy pants yesterday but I’m not kidding when I say it’s really very cool to see MC Hammer rock his Hammer Pants again … and rock them right! Enjoy!!
Madonna brought her MDNA World Tour back to NYC, NY last night and she brought along a special surprise guest to take the stage with her. At around the midpoint of her show, Madonna pauses to speak directly to the audience and she sometimes interjects a surprise extra song into her live set. During last night’s midpoint address/performance, Maddy began a performance of her song Give It 2 Me and about a minute into the song, she brought Korean popstar Psy to the stage to perform his massive hit Gangnam Style with her. Naturally, video of the collaboration quickly made its way to the Internets and you can watch the full performance above. It really looks like the Gangnam Style thing is here to stay, at least for a bit longer. I guess I shouldn’t be too surprised that Madonna succumbed to the Gangnam trend … but let’s not forget, our dear Britney Spears was on that tip way back in September ;)
Earlier today we got to check out some of the skits from last night’s episode of Saturday Night Live. Anne Hathaway‘s singing kinda blew me away, but I also thought Rihanna gave a great rendition of her new song Stay. RiRi also performed Diamonds (for which she just dropped a video), but I wasn’t a huge fan of the weirdness popping off from the screen in the background. Either way, it was nice to see her doing something to promote her album that was, well, controversy-free for a change. Peep the Diamonds performance above and click inside to watch her singing Stay.
Third Time's A Charm
Last week we heard that Anne Hathaway would be hosting Saturday Night Live for the third time in her career, which is awesome! In the opening monologue, Anne was her usual amazing self and I love, love, love that she played up on her upcoming movie Les Misérables. She had the whole cast singing this ridiculous number about Sundays and Mondays, and it was hilarious. But when Anne opened her mouth to sing, I was just in awe. I know we’ve heard her sing in the promos for Les Mis, but damn! She can really, really sang. Truthfully, I wasn’t loving a lot of the skits from this week (except for the McDonald’s Firing and Weekend Update with Drunk Uncle… loved those) and, although Rihanna performed, I’ve been feeling a bit… um… emotionally detached from her. Still she gave a good performance of Stay, which I’ll share shortly. Peep Anne‘s opening monologue above and click inside for a few more skits from last night’s show. And to all our PITNBRS who can’t watch the videos in Canada– I know, it’s a bummer. Shouts-out to y’all!
Plus Rihanna Performs
Victoria’s Secret taped their annual fashion show last night and it looked like it was all kinds of cray. The good cray, though. Now I know they had tons of supermodels hit the runway, but I only have eyes for Miranda Kerr. One of the sexiest women alive looked like she totally killed the show and I cannot wait to watch it when it airs later this month. But for now, we have some really sweet pictures of the Australian bombshell werkin’ it all up and down the catwalk. And Rihanna performed as well, but I’m kinda… incensed with her. More on that later. And either way, these are still two of my favorite people to look at, so peep the gallery for more!
