Frankly, we’re so chuffed that this cheeky quintet has conquered the world that we dare you to make it through even one of their music videos without smiling, singing along or squealing with delight.
In honor of our fave lads’ upcoming leap to the big screen in One Direction: This Is Us (in theaters August 30), we’ve rounded up 1D’s five most irresistibly charming music videos. Why five? Well, “all of them” just didn’t have the same ring to it…but let us know what you think of our selection in the comments!
Niall, Zayn, Liam, Harry and Louis: you light up our world like nobody else…and that’s what makes you beautiful. More »
Thicke has amassed a couple hit singles throughout his career, including his breakout song “Lost Without U.” And with “Blurred Lines” now in its seventh week atop the Billboard Hot 100, and its same-titled parent album out tomorrow (July 30), let’s recall some of the less-than-successful attempts at chart success by Thicke. It’s not that these songs aren’t awesome; they really are. They merely slid under the radar, and were overshadowed by whatever else was happening in music at the time or lacked the promotional push from the earlier days of Thicke being signed to Pharrell Williams’ Star Trak imprint.

Yes, the rise of the boy band would likely never have happened without MTV’s long-running afternoon countdown show (it aired from September 1998 to November 2008 — so remember, the MTV VMA-winning “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)” pre-dated the series by only a few months), a phenomenon the Backstreet Boys, along with *NSYNC, helped to cement in the annals of popular culture. With Backstreet celebrating their 20th anniversary this year (WHAT?) and ready to release their new album In A World Like This on July 30th, we’ve got them on our minds again. Not to mention, this fall marks the 15th anniversary of TRL’s debut and the fifth anniversary of its final adieu. In honor of both, we salute the 10 greatest Backstreet Boys videos of the TRL era: clips which just happen to have attained #1 status on the show’s fan-based countdown, thankyouverymuch.
So let’s all imagine ourselves as we were a decade back in time, seated on a bleacher in front of Carson Daly whilst a scrolling ticker displays the words “I LOVE A.J.!” across our hearts, and remember these peak moments of Nick, Brian, Kevin, Howie and, of course that untameable rascal, A.J.

Sure, there have been boatloads of artist collaborations, features, mash-ups and pair-ups in recent memory, but we decided to stick with real-life amore, and compile a list of the best duets from 12 musical lovebirds over the past 20 years. Get in the mood below! More »
Selena, a veteran of such Disney Channel fare as Wizards Of Waverly Place and Suite Life Of Zack And Cody, long ago proved she could deliver the goods away from the House of Mouse, scoring hits with her band The Scene and making her own impression with critics alongside Hudgens in the controversial Spring Breakers. Now the newly-minted showgirl (check that album cover) and erstwhile Beiber consort (she made him cry) is 21 and Scene-less, riding the wave of another big radio hit and to releasing her first truly “solo” album. In commemoration of this new phase in her career, we’re taking a look back at her top five greatest video moments!
Yes, a Selena Gomez retrospective: because when you’re 21 in Hollywood, it’s already time to start thinking about those Lifetime Achievement Awards. All kidding aside, if these five clips don’t cement Selena as one of pop music’s most exciting starlets, we give up on pop music. (Until Cher’s new album, at least.) More »
So as we sink our teeth into another disco opus from England’s most prolific duo, let’s have a look back at the best-of-the-best of their musical pairings, team-ups and remixes. They really have worked with everyone — so many that we left out big names like Elton John and Yoko Ono (and even Alcazar) and still ended up with a dozen definitive titles. Check them out, then let us know which Pet Shop Boys collaborations you think should be on this list. More »
Here, we’ve gathered five of Monteith’s most memorable music moments on the show — yes, as a way of mourning him, but, more importantly, to demonstrate the fact that he may be gone, but his legacy on Glee will live on through song.
Revisit some of Cory’s most unforgettable Glee performances below. More »
Well it turns out, in music there’s a Game of Thrones-level battle for The Night, with everyone trying to get their grubby mitts on it. 98 Degrees, they were polite enough to request just one night (una noche), but just about every other act out there has at some point been worked up about Thee Night. Pitbull and Havana Brown recently said “We Run The Night,” a bold statement, but modest compared to some of the other pronouncements bandied about in recent music history. Lady Antebellum lament that “We Owned The Night,” ceding their reigns to Tiesto and Wolfgang Gartner who decreed “We Own The Night,” present tense. More »
