We Put A Ring On The Past 10 Years
At this Sunday’s (August 24) MTV Video Music Awards, Pharrell will be the one male facing off against female pop forces Beyonce, Miley Cyrus, Iggy Azalea and Sia in the Video Of The Year category. And of course we all know those names today, but who remembers that Panic! At The Disco once waltzed away from the VMAs with a Video Of The Year moonman? Or what song Green Day nabbed the award for in 2005? Or what year Britney Spears emerged victorious in the category?

Ahead of the latest staging of MTV’s annual extravaganza, we decided to flash back through the past decade, all the way back to 2004, to refresh our memories on exactly which artists and songs won the big prize on VMAs night. We then compiled snippets of all the winning clips into one two-and-a-half-minute video, which you can watch above. More »

Pop Stars Accept The Ice Bucket Challenge: Watch Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez & Taylor Swift Get Wet

Pop stars are really getting behind the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, which raises money for the fight against Lou Gehrig’s disease. Participants donate $100 or have a bucket of extremely cold water poured over their head. (To their credit, most celebrities have elected to do both). As a result, social media is buzzing with videos of soaking wet divas and shirtless singers. Bless.

As a part of the challenge you have to nominate three other people to take part. Taylor Swift picked Selena Gomez before undertaking her group-soaking with a bunch of friends and Drake passed the baton to Beyonce, who is yet to participate. (It’s surely only a matter of time). He used the opportunity to show off his rippling six-pack, as did Justin Bieber and Calvin Harris. Watch a selection of the best ice bucket challenges after the jump. More »

Justin Timberlake Sings “Happy Birthday” To 8-Year-Old Autistic Fan At ’20/20′ Concert: Watch

Justin Timberlake paused his set during a recent 20/20 concert when he heard the crowd yelling at him. One fan in particular, an autistic boy named Julian, was turning eight years old – and all he wanted was for Timberlake to wish him a happy birthday, as a recent video shows.

The video was first posted by Julian’s mother, writer Marika Rosenthal Delan. “Things started to unravel quickly in my mind as I looked around, giving way to my worries about Julian’s obsessions, his volume, his repetitiveness, his clumsiness, if he would spill someone’s drink and if they would be unkind to him…. basically all the things a parent worries about when they have a child that is easily misunderstood,” she wrote, in a concert recap for the blog The Manifest Station.

Throughout the show, Julian tried to capture Timberlake’s attention: “It’s my birthday! This is my present!” As the video shows, and despite Delan’s initial worries, the crowd of 25,000 didn’t mind. On Timberlake’s count, everyone joined in to sing “Happy Birthday” to Julian. Watch the adorable footage below. More »

One Direction, Justin Timberlake Top List Of 2014′s Highest Grossing Tours

Story Of Our Lives
One Direction tops Pollstar’s list of 2014′s highest-grossing tours so far. The UK boy band’s Where We Are trek has raked in more than $131 million, besting sales of landmark tours by The Rolling Stones ($115 million), including the legendary rock band’s first-ever concert in Israel. Justin Timberlake ranks third on the list ($110 million), though with his 20/20 world tour now returning to the United States his sales are bound to go up.

Other acts didn’t come close to selling as much as the top three. The ever-reliable Bruce Springstreen & the E Street Band (Timberlake is a fan) has brought in $64 million. Meanwhile, save for 1D, Timberlake and Bruno Mars and his Moonshine Jungle Tour rounding out the top ten, the year’s biggest sellers so far have been legacy acts, like George Strait and the Eagles. As Popdust points out, Cher is the only female in the top ten, though with Beyonce (Mrs. Carter Show) and Miley Cyrus (Bangerz) not trailing far behind.

Head on over to Pollstar for the full list. After the jump, see a fan-made compilation of the best moments from One Direction’s tour, set at the start to The Weather Girls’ “It’s Raining Men.” More »

Katy Tiz Performs An Acoustic Mash-Up Of “No Diggity” And “Cry Me A River”: Idolator Premiere

katy-tiz
Now It's Your Turn To Cry
Katy Tiz landed her first entry on the Billboard Hot 100 last month with a smoky cover of Rock Mafia‘s “The Big Bang”. You’re sure to see and hear a lot more from the British babe when her video drops (any day now) but, in the meantime, here’s a lovely acoustic mash-up of Blackstreet‘s “No Diggity” and Justin Timberlake‘s “Cry Me A River” to tide you over.

The best thing about this performance (apart from Katy’s fetching red bandana) is that it showcases the full versatility of her powerful pipes. “The Big Bang” finally showed what the blonde bombshell is capable of vocally after releasing a handful of less challenging electro-pop singles but this mini-medley highlights a surprisingly soulful quality. Watch her in action up top. More »

Justin Timberlake Announces An Intimate Performance At NYC’s Hammerstein Ballroom

Not a fan of big arenas? Well, here’s your chance to see Justin Timberlake strut his stuff at New York City’s intimate Hammerstein Ballroom. The “Not A Bad Thing” hitmaker has announced an exclusive performance at the famous venue on July 10. There’s a catch, however. You have to be a Citi/AAdvantage MasterCard cardmember. (Or at least know one that will hook you up!)

Tickets for the show go on sale at 12pm EDT on June 11. JT put on a similar spectacle at New York’s Roseland Ballroom last year and it was something to behold. The 33-year-old performed all his early hits (“Like I Love You”, “Senorita” and “Cry Me A River”) as well as belting out songs from The 20/20 Experience. With another album of new material under his belt, this year’s gig promises to be even better. More »

Jessie J Performs Four New Songs At Rock In Rio: Watch

jessie-j-sweet-talker
Blah Blah
Jessie J has spent 2014 camped out in the recording studio, readying the U.S. release of sophomore album Alive, and, apparently, a third album. So during Rock at Rio in Lisbon and Madrid, she was more than eager to share some of her new material from the latter. To preface “Keep It Together,” a song she initially teased six months ago, she even made an announcement-turned-surprising request. “I really, really would love Justin Timberlake to sing on the song with me one day,” she said, to cheers from the crowd.

Jessie J delivers sass at moments, like in “Sweet Talker” (above) and at the sung-rap hook of “Ain’t Been Done,” though her new material isn’t as deliberately fiery as Alive‘s debut single “Wild.” Instead, she’s alternating between sweeter, uplifting pop and intimate acoustic numbers, like “You Don’t Really Know Me” – a song she prefaced by saying, ““Sometimes I don’t know how to be famous, and it freaks me out.” Hear that, “Keep Us Together” and “Ain’t Been Done” below.  More »
