‘The Voice’: Top 12 Advance As Josh Kaufman’s Bruno Mars Cover Brings The House Down

Apr 16th, 2014 // Comment

On Tuesday night (April 15), Usher‘s team was the only group left to compete in The Voice Playoffs (at least the ones where coaches Shakira, Usher, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine were in charge of the votes). There were plenty of ambitious attempts by the contestants, and although not all were hits, Team Usher proved to be a force this season!

T.J. Wilkins, Melissa Jimenez, Stevie Jo, Bria Kelly and Josh Kaufman all performed for Ursh’s affections, leaving him with a tough choice at the end of the evening. Here’s how they did, and how The Voice Live Rounds Top 12 shaped up. More »

Once again, the Glee kids are tackling a weighty issue because God forbid they keep it light. Every single storyline focuses on sex and how the characters either feel about having it or not having it, as the case may be. For all the talk about doing the nasty, we never actually see anybody getting it on, alas. But, I digress. So, let’s talk about what we do see. More »

There’s no denying the fact that Pharrell Williamschart-topping smash hit “Happy” has brought joy to millions of people worldwide, and become something of a musical movement. But when Oprah Winfrey presented the in-demand singer-songwriter-producer with a montage clip of “Happy” tributes from around the globe on Sunday’s Oprah Prime, Williams broke down into tears, leaving Winfrey to well up herself and reach for the Kleenex.

“Why am I crying on Oprah,” Pharrell said when he finally gained his composure. Winfrey’s response: “You know, it’s being used for something that’s greater than yourself. I get that.” More »

Pharrell was just on SNL to kinda sing a pair of G I R L songs while a backing track did the heavy lifting, but he returned to Ellen Monday (April 14) to perform “Come Get It Bae,” and this time the live vocals were up in the mix and he proved he could hit that brittle falsetto.

Wearing the trademark hat and a goofy letter jacket, and flanked by a few female dancers on platforms, Skateboard P continued his reign of terror — we’re kidding, no matter how ubiquitous this guy is getting, it’s impossible to get bitter. He earned it after reshaping aughts pop, and, plus, he’s just so damn happy all the time.

‘The Voice’ Recap: YouTube Sensation Christina Grimmie Stuns For Team Adam

Apr 15th, 2014 // 1 Comment

A second week of The Voice Playoffs started on Monday (April 14), in an evening filled with endless compliments from Usher, Blake Shelton, Shakira and Adam Levine, few critiques and a smattering of standout performances. Performing Monday night were five finalists from Team Shakira, five finalists from Team Adam, and the entire audience by way of off-rhythm clapping and aggressive arm waving.

While the audience impressed roughly no one, Teams Shakira and Adam earned high praises from the coaches – and some of these compliments were even deserved! Unfortunately, compliments can only take contestants so far in The Voice, so four out of the ten competitors would be packing up by the end of the evening. More »

Eminem and Rihanna weren’t only pop pair to make a showing at the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday (April 13) night. British songbird Ellie Goulding and Russian producer/DJ Zedd were also on hand, and their appearance fit slightly more with the evening’s events, given that they both performed songs from the Divergent soundtrack. (You know — a movie, as opposed to Em and RiRi’s “Hey, we’re going on tour together, so here’s our big promo for that” spectacle.)

At any rate, Ellie kicked things off by ditching the leather she wore just two days before at Coachella and showing her softer side as she performed “Beating Heart,” complete with fire burning all around her. Zedd played piano during her bit then segued into his own Divergent track “Find You,” while being joined by vocalists Matthew Koma and Miriam Bryant. More »

A million weeks ago, before Pharrell‘s “Happy” was the #1 song in the country, Eminem and Rihanna‘s second collaboration, “The Monster,” was the first single to top the Billboard Hot 100 in 2014. And while the rest of the music industry was either taking in, performing at or recovering from Coachella, Em and RiRi hit the stage at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards on Sunday (April 13) night and performed the Marshall Mathers LP 2 smash live for the very first time.

Taylor Swift Interrupts Seth Rogen During ‘SNL’ Monologue: Watch

Taylor Swift makes headlines for merely posing, if not performing with famous friends: Ellie Goulding, supermodel Karlie Kloss, Lorde. Actor Seth Rogen seemed to know this all too well when Swift, along with New Girl‘s Zooey Deschanel and better half James Franco, hijacked his monologue while hosting Saturday Night Live on April 12.

“No, I don’t want any help. I told you guys, I’m fine,” Rogen protested. So naturally, Swift walks on stage to help emphasize his point: “Guys, he said he doesn’t need any help.”

Swift is fewer than six degrees from Rogen; Rogen and Franco co-starred in 2008′s Pineapple Express directed by David Gordon Green, who would cast Franco and Deschanel for 2011′s Your Highness, and then last year, after having hosted SNL herself, Swift would say the best line of New Girl‘s season 2 finale – as she did during Rogen’s monologue.

Ed Sheeran Performs “Sing” & Debuts “Don’t” On ‘SNL’: Watch

Ed Sheeran previously indicated that his next album would be hip-hop influened and more beat-centric, but when x lead single “Sing” finally premiered, it was still shocking to hear the sensitive British crooner channeling Justified-era JT over Pharrell‘s jittery funk production  — and doing it pretty well!

But how would the transition fare in a live setting? Tonight (April 12) on Saturday Night Live we found out, as Sheeran performed the song live for the first time. He started off as usual, with just his guitar and his voice, before the backing band and vocalists joined in by the chorus. After that it was kind of a blast! (He even pulled off that sorta-rapped verse.) This dude’s no one-trick pony.

For his second song, Sheeran debuted “Don’t,” and it had an equally bouncy groove and another hefty dose of sing-rapping.

OutKast, 20 years,” Big Boi laughed.

On April 11, Coachella spectators watched the reunited OutKast perform for the first time in a decade. The starting half of its career-spanning set made it easy to see why the duo had been sorely missed, with songs and showmanship more than worthy of its headlining slot. During the latter half, though, a few missteps made it clear that, indeed, Big Boi and partner-in-rhyme Andre 3000 hadn’t performed together in years – and have a few kinks to work out for the rest of its 40-plus festival tour.
