It’s that time of year again!

The 40th annual American Music Awards are set to air live from the Nokia Theatre on November 18th.

One of popular music’s biggest calendar nights, the AMA’s are renown for boasting the year’s best live performances, while also awarding the most deserving releases of the last twelve months.

With all eyes on the latter, attention turns to who is up for awards this year. Well, wonder no more. The nominations for the 2012 American Music Awards await below…


The sales of Usher‘s latest LP ‘Looking 4 Myself’ may not be meeting his usual highs, yet that hasn’t deterred the crooner from pressing on with the set’s fifth single ‘Numb’.

Many insiders attribute the continuation of the project, which has sold just 380,000 copies in the US since June, to the the 33 year old’s upcoming stint as a coach on NBC The Voice. Indeed, what better way to heighten his importance to the show than to continue his run as a relevant, charting artiste?

Anyway, peep the freshly released teaser for the visual below…



After ‘crushing Rihanna’s Diamonds’ on the Billboard Hot 100, Ke$ha shared this snap with fans today- during a trip to the Europe’s Austria.

While the BET Awards 2012 boasted many a major performance, Brandy was the name on the lips of many come the end of night. Indeed, her show-stopping tribute medley to the late, great Whitney Houston was unanimously hailed as as the evening’s most memorable moment.

Now, in an EXCLUSIVE new rehearsal clip, you watch how B-Rocka pieced together the performance. If ever there was any doubt as to who R&B’s vocal bible is, the clip above provides an emphatic answer.

Brandy’s hotly anticipated new album ‘Two Eleven’ arrives next Tuesday (October 16th). We’ll be buying…will you?

She may be in town as part of her sold European tour, but Jennifer Lopez still found time to relax last night- enjoying dinner with her children, lover Casper Smart and mother, Guadelope Rodriquez.

Casually dressed and heavily guarded, the family made their way to dinner, days after Lopez graced Paris Fashion Week and hours after she’d enjoyed a shopping trip with Smart, also one of her dancers.

Girls Aloud are back.

And with Cheryl Cole‘s solo sales sagging sans The X Factor machine and the rest tanking in spectacular fashion with their own efforts, it was really only a matter of time.

Less cynically, though, next month marks the tenth anniversary of the group’s creation, and it appears the ladies are gearing up to mark the occasion.

For, this morning saw the a mysterious countdown timer appear on their newly relaunched website; a timer which ends on October 19th – the widely speculated release of the group’s new single.

The time-frame also coincides with the ladies much speculated live showing at Children In Need on November 16th, as well as the Royal Variety Performance which place on November 19th.

And while little else has been revealed about the project at present, it has been confirmed that Cheryl, Nadine, Nicola, and co  clocked in studio time with Pop maestro’s Xenomania back in May.

With the original Sugababes MKS also back in the mix, it’s certainly an exciting time for fans of Brit-Pop girl groups.

They may be relatively talent-challenged (sans, of course, the sublime Nadine Coyle – R.I.P ‘Insatiable’), but check out some of our favourite Girls Aloud moments below. Warning *some* are so bad, they’re good!


Can you hear that?

Self-professed Pitbull in a Skirt Eve is barking back with new single ‘She Bad Bad’.

Having teased with a titillating snippet yesterday, does the full version of the track deliver? Is the former Ruff Ryder still packing that “heat”?  The answer awaits after the jump…


The year’s biggest newcomer. The industry’s biggest hitmaker. And Hip-Hop’s biggest superstar. Naturally, it’s a given that such a shot of Frank Ocean, Pharrell Williams, and Jay-Z was always going to make headlines.

Shared yesterday by Williams, it’s presently unknown what the trio were working on. Yet, whatever it was certainly had The Neptunes star all-fired up. Writing on Twitter after posting the pic, he said:


And neither can we! Ocean’s last hook-up with Pharrell was on the sublime ‘Sweet Life’ from his critically acclaimed ‘Channel Orange’ LP, while he recently waxed it up with Jay-Z on Watch The Throne‘s ‘No Church In The Wild’.

That’s right, after enjoying a brief but well documented hiatus from the charts in recent years, the former Def Jam darling now readies her return to Pop, via Lil Wayne‘s ‘Young Money’ group.

We were beginning to worry, but it looks like Eve is finally back!

After a lengthy hiatus, one characterised by legal issues and a label change, the self-professed Pitbull In A Skirt barks back with new single ‘She Bad Bad’ – the cover for which she unmasked on Twitter moments ago.

The cut, which hits iTunes tomorrow, is the first effort to be lifted E-V-E’s EMI debut which boasts production from the likes of Missy Elliott and is set for release next year.

With Nicki Minaj having had a strong-hold of sorts on the commercial femcee market as of late, it’ll be uber interesting to see if her success assists the likes of  established acts such as Eve reclaim their spots at the top. As long-time supports of the former Ruff Ryder‘s talent, we sure hope it does.
