Listen: Sam Smith & John Legend Debut Collaboration Single

Grammy Winners Unite For Charity Song

john-legend-sam-smith-red-nose-thatgrapejuice

Two of music’s most gifted talents, Sam Smith and John Legend, have joined forces for an awesome cause.

Moments ago, a new Legend assisted version of ‘Lay Me Down’ – from Smith’s debut album ‘In The Lonely Hour’ – was released as the official Red Nose Day single in the UK.

Hosted every two years, the major fundraiser launches a nationwide drive for donations to help end poverty in Africa and picks a song to assist its cause. With all revenue from the single’s sales  going towards the campaign (which also raises money with sales of small red “noses”), the chosen track is often at the receiving end of major exposure. Put simply, it’s a great look for all involved.

academyawards-2015-thatgrapejuice

For all of the tweet-worthy moments over its lengthy 3.5 hour airtime (see: emotional speeches, off-color commentary, jaw-dropping live performances courtesy of Jennifer Hudson, John Legend & Lady Gaga), the day after the  87th annual Academy Awards is finding the show lining tweets for another reason – a severe drop in ratings.

The Neil Patrick Harris-hosted affair, which aired February 22 on ABC, not only brought with it a 17% drop in viewers from last year’s showing, but also reigns as the ceremony’s lowest ratings tally this decade.

The 87th Annual Academy Awards may be flooding Twitter timelines for its host of memorable quotes (i.e. “honoring the best & whitest,”), red carpet slayage, and trophy wins and snubs, but its most talked about moments may have just come courtesy of its music performances.

As if Rita Ora didn’t rock the stage enough with her amazing live showing of ‘Grateful,’ found aboard the ‘Beyond the Lights’ soundtrack, Grammy winners Common, John Legend and Jennifer Hudson hit the Dolby Theatre stage to perform stunning renditions of songs from some of this year’s nominated films and more.

Beyonce & Lady Gaga Led ‘Stevie Wonder Tribute’ A Moderate Ratings Draw Despite All-Star Lineup

beyonce-thatgrapejuice-stevie wonder

Not even the combined powers of music super divas Beyonce, Lady Gaga, and Jennifer Hudson were enough to shift killer ratings for the second installment of the ‘Grammy tribute’ series – this time paying homage the academy’s most decorated artist Stevie Wonder.

Airing February 15th on CBS, the showing – a critics top pick -  did manage to draw a respectable viewing audience, but still nearly less than half of last year’s episode in honor of the Beatles (which drew a whopping 13.95 million viewers).  The numbers are all the more disappointing as, unlike the Beatles tribute, Wonder’s installment had little competition elsewhere on television.

But, as reports below reveal, all was not lost.  For, after the likes of Pharrell Williams, Ariana Grande, Janelle Monae, John Legend, and Ed Sheeran put their ever modern twists on Wonder’s classic hits, interest in the 70s & 80s numbers found itself skyrocketing on top sites Spotify and Shazam.
