barbra streisand jimmy fallon late night duets 2014 live performance

Monday night’s episode of the Tonight Show was all about Barbra Streisand. The iconic diva swung by the NYC set of the nighttime talk show and spent the evening with host Jimmy Fallon to promote her new album Partners (out today, September 16). In the spirit of the release, Fallon donned an Elvis wig and a cowboy hat and joined Streisand for a medley of “Love Me Tender” and “I’d Want It To Be You.” They capped the whole shebang off with “It Had To Be You” (as done on Partners by Babs and Michael Buble).

Watch below, and be sure to stick around till the part where Jimmy goes in for a kiss, only to be comically rebuffed by Barbra. More »

Alicia Keys Performs “We Are Here” On The ‘TODAY’ Show: Watch

Alicia Keys We Are Here Today Show performance

Alicia Keys dropped by the TODAY show this morning for a touching performance of her new single “We Are Here.” The singer, who is pregnant with her second child, explained the meaning of the song to host Matt Lauer.

“It started with this conversation that I had, that question [why are we on this planet] was asked to me,” Keys said. “That really opened up a whole conversation and a whole dialogue. And with the backdrop of everything that’s going on in the world, we’re wondering what can we do about it. We all have a voice, but how can it be used?”

See if Alicia’s song motivates you to answer why we’re all here on the planet below. More »

Meghan Trainor Performs “All About That Bass” on ‘X Factor Australia’: Watch

meghan-live

We’re certainly all about that bass here in the States — and now, Australia is too.

After getting Ellen dancing with her live rendition on The Ellen Show last week, Title EP cutie Meghan Trainor headed down under to croon her Billboard #1 live on X Factor Australia over the weekend — and it was certainly a lavish affair.

Backed by a troupe of high energy dancers, flashing lights and colorful backdrops of ice cream and cupcakes (yum!) and dressed in a schoolgirl chic outfit, Meghan sweetly crooned her bubbly cut, notching yet another solid live performance under her belt.

Could “All About That Bass” become an international #1 hit? Watch after the jump, and let us know what you think in the comments below. More »

The Vamps Debut Their “Hurricane” Video: Watch

Like A Hurricane
The Vamps manage to avoid major catastrophes in their video for “Hurricane” – a major feat, given its premise.

“Hurricane” will appear on the soundtrack to Disney’s forthcoming film adaptation of the 1972 children’s book Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, starring Steve Carell, Jennifer Garner and Bella Thorne. And so, as the band performs the bubbly pop-punk song somewhere in suburbia, clips show what to expect of the film – a baby eating crayons, a car crash into parking meters and fire at a Japanese steakhouse, among other things.

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day debuts October 10, while the soundtrack (also featuring Justine Dorsey, The Narwhals and more) hits stores October 7. Watch The Vamps rock out in their “Hurricane” video up top, then see the Alexander film trailer below. More »

Chris Brown And Ariana Grande’s “Don’t Be Gone Too Long” Surfaces: Watch

Don't Be Gone Too Long
Chris Brown‘s dance-pop duet with Ariana Grande, “Don’t Be Gone Too Long,” was announced last spring, before it was postponed due to Brown’s incarceration. Then the song appeared to have been scrapped entirely. (“My duet partner isn’t available at the moment to put the song out with me,” Grande had said.) A version without Grande will now appear on Brown’s sixth album X, out September 16.

Days before X‘s release, though, Brown released the “Don’t Be Gone Too Long” video that he directed months ago. While a previous teaser showed only him silhouetted in a dark room while dancing to the song, the full video isn’t as straightforward. In this storybook romance gone wrong, Grande plays a princess who falls in love with Brown. After the two are caught seeing each other, though, knights lock Ariana’s object of affection away in attempts to keep them apart. More »

'X' Marks The Spot
With the release of his long-delayed studio album X just days away now, “Loyal” crooner Chris Brown is making his rounds to promote the forthcoming LP.

Last night, Brown and his troupe of dancers hit the stage to perform title track “X,” as well as a bit of “Loyal,” to the frenzied and passionate screams from the studio audience. Dressed head-to-toe in all red, the singer alternated between belting out the emotional track at the mic and stepping back to deliver his signature high-energy choreography.

Although the performer hasn’t had too many live performances throughout this, erm, tumultuous era, he looked right at home performing on a late night stage once again.

Nick Jonas Performs “Jealous” On ‘Late Night With Seth Meyers’: Watch

Late Night Jealousy
Nick Jonas, when not getting nude and exploring his sexuality in his new show Kingdom, is in the midst of a full-fledged promotional tour for his infectious jam “Jealous,” just ahead of the release of his forthcoming self-titled solo album in November.

Last night, the solo JoBro hit the stage on Late Night With Seth Meyers to croon the lead track live in his first late night TV performance of the tune. Backed by a band, the newly solo singer kept it cool in a black leather jacket while crooning his ode. (So much falsetto!) And, as it turns out, Nick commands the stage just fine all on his own.

All About That 'Ellen'
She’s bringing booty back — for the very first time! — on The Ellen Show.

Rising diva Meghan Trainor hit the stage yesterday to perform her breezy, horn-heavy body image empowerment anthem, “All About That Bass.”

Backed by a crew of energetic dancers and a live band and clad in a suitably retro short dress and thigh-high boots, the Title songstress happily shimmied and swayed through her current #1 song in the country.

Following the performance, Meghan revealed to Ellen that she was inspired by a specific episode of Ellen before writing the smash hit. And, because the song just went Platinum, Ellen surprised the misty-eyed singer-songstress with her very first plaque — a sweet moment for everyone involved.

Nick Jonas Talks Going Nude On ‘Kingdom’, Hints At Gay Character Plot Line On ‘Watch What Happens Live’: Watch

He's Got A Big...Story Line!
You’ve got to hand it to Nick Jonas: He’s a real trooper.

While the newly solo crooner’s genuinely excellent new single “Jealous” just dropped this week, it seems more people would rather talk about his bulging muscles than his vocal chops. (But let’s call a spade a spade: He’s a babe.)

During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, the singer fielded some fan questions from the phone lines. And of course, who’s got time to talk music? One caller dialed in to find out whether or not Nick — who’s due to star in the upcoming boxing-themed series Kingdom on DirecTV — would ever consider stripping down for a role. “Oh, I just did a lot of nudity,” he revealed.

And that’s not all! “My character has a big, um…” he began with a pause, making the entire clubhouse briefly crack up. A big what? Oh — a storyline! “Revolving around his sexuality,” he continued.

“Is he bi-curious?!” Andy eagerly inquired. “We will see,” Nick teased. Oh, Andy! More »

It's Singleney, Bitch!
You think you got what it takes to date Miss Britney Spears? You better work, bitch!

Last night, after appearing at the New York Public Library to debut her new line of lingerie and sleepwear (The Intimate Britney Spears), the newly single “Perfume” pop icon came to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to chat with Jimmy about the pros and cons of dating a living legend.

Arriving to the stage to a thunderous applause from the audience (“it’s MY show!” Jimmy jokingly yelled), the diva — looking drop dead beautiful in red — was shown her very first Tinder profile (with a bio that reads, amazingly, “This better work, bitch!”) before launching into a silly pros/cons weigh-in with Jimmy. Although we know she’s busy in Las Vegas at her Piece Of Me residency (and in the studio!), it’s so, so nice to see her out having her fun too. She looks amazing!

Check out Britney goofing around with Jimmy up top, and let us know what you think of Singleney in the comments below! More »
