A new set of pictures were released for the rehearsal for the Justin Beiber performance at the Grammy’s. The “Best New Artist” nominee is set to perform with Jaden Smith and Usher who is nominated twice. This is Usher’s (pictured above) first performance since the Super Bowl Halftime Show where he was clearly lip-syncing.
Here’s hoping that tomorrow night’s performance will be better.
Check out the cutest picture of Jaden and Justin, and the creepiest picture of Usher and Justin below.
Both Eminem and Rihanna earned a myriad of honors at the 37th Annual People’s Choice Awards on January 5th. Eminem won four awards: Favorite Male Artist, Favorite Hip-Hop Artist, Favorite Song, and Favorite Music Video. The latter two awards were shared with Rihanna who also earned Favorite Pop Star at the show. The two are also side-by-side this week on the Billboard charts; Eminem is at #2 with Recovery while Rihanna resides at #3 with Loud. Neither artist attended the event.
Katy Perry won two awards for Favorite Female Artist and Favorite Web Celeb, she accepted her awards hinting at summer dates for her California Dreams Tour.
Usher, Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift, and Paramore each nabbed one award. Paramore did not attend the ceremony as their band is going through a rebuilding phase after losing two members last month. They are set to talk to MTV on Friday (Jan. 7) addressing the issue.
Also, Selena Gomez, who picked up Favorite New Artist performed her hit A Year Without Rain, at the show. The album of the same name is in stores now.
Suprising snubs, both Lady Gaga and Justin Beiber went home empty handed. Also suprising, Britney Spears lost in the Favorite TV Guest Star category. Tough Luck!
What did you think of the People’s Choice Awards!
The UK’s top 40 selling singles of 2010 was recently released and Eminem and Rihanna topped the chart with Love the Way You Lie. Eminem should send Rihanna a thank you note or something.
It is not Rihanna’s only top ten hit, she’s at #9 with Only Girl.
The interesting thing? Lie never reached number 1 on the UK Singles Chart. Interesting.
Another thing, until you reach #6 all of the songs on the chart are by American artists. Seems like the Brits are pretty in sync with us blue coats.
Here’s the top ten list:
1. Eminem feat. Rihanna, “Love The Way You Lie”
2. Bruno Mars, “Just the Way You Are”
3. Usher feat. will.i.am, OMG
4. Owl City, “Fireflies”
5. B.o.B feat. Hayley Williams, “Airplanes”
6. Katy Perry feat. Snoop Dogg, “California Gurls”
7. Yolanda Be Cool vs. DCUP, “We No Speak Americano”
8. Helping Haiti, “Everybody Hurts”
9. Rihanna, “Only Girl (In The World)”
10. Tinie Tempah, “Pass Out”
