Bruno Mars to Perform at the Super Bowl Half Time Show


It was confirmed on Sunday that Grammy Award winning singer Bruno Mars will be the headlining performer for February’s Super Bowl Half Time show!

Mars and his band, The Hooligans, were introduced to football fans everywhere at the FOX NFL Sunday broadcast, where he was live in Times Square to kick off the first full week on professional football. Mars said:

“It’s just an honor. We just got off tour so being able to come to New York City and announce this right now is incredible. We’re celebrating, we’re celebrating for sure.”

Last year’s Super Bowl half time show featured Beyoncé and brought in more than 110.5 million viewers.

Super Bowl XLVIII will be held on February 2 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ. Every half time show performer brings out some special guests so when Mars was asked if he would be bringing along anyone with him to the stage he said:

“It’s five months from now, so I got a couple of phone calls to make.”

Bruno Mars is a 14 time Grammy nominee  and has sold more than 115 million singles worldwide.

Keyshia Cole Trashes Michelle Williams’ Half Time Performance


Keyshia Cole was NOT impressed by Michelle Williams’ performance during the Super Bowl half time show and she was not afraid to let her opinion be heard!

Cole took to Twitter to express her distaste with Williams’ performance during Destiny’s Child’s reunion at the half time show.

Cole tweeted to her 217,577 Twitter followers:

“F-ck that shit up then Beyoncé! Bad bitch central. I think I was frightened to blink for a sec. Then Michelle sung and woke my ass up from my daze! She always f-cking the groove up.”

After that tweet, Destiny’s Child fans were not happy and defended their favorite reunited girl group, which Cole responded with:

“But hey! I love y’all too! And y’all girl is whack and always will be!”

Cole’s harsh words didn’t put a damper on the group’s reunion, as all three members tweeted how much fun they had with the performance.

Beyoncé, Williams, and Kelly Rowland reunited for the half time performance and did a medley of their old hits, “Bootylicious,” “Independent Women Part 1,” and Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It).”

Despite Cole’s feelings about the performance, it received mostly praise from celebs like Kelly Clarkson, Jimmy Fallon, Chris Colfer, and many more!

Alicia Keys Sits Behind a Piano to Sing the Super Bowl National Anthem


Shortly after Jennifer Hudson and the Sandy Hook Elementary School Chorus sang “America the Beautiful” at the Super Bowl, Alicia Keys belted out a soulful performance of the “Star Spangled Banner.”

Keys was seated behind a silver piano in a long red dress in the middle of the field. She sang a slowed-down, soulful version of the National anthem as the crowd and players were standing.

While many singers recently have been criticized for messing up our National Anthem, Keys gave a flawless performance. Past National Anthem Super Bowl singers included Christina Aguilera, Carrie Underwood, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Beyoncé, Jennifer Hudson, and last year’s performer Kelly Clarkson.

According to Mashable, the last singer to sit behind a piano during a Super Bowl National Anthem was Billy Joel in 2007.

Jennifer Hudson & Sandy Hook Chorus Give Touching Performance at Super Bowl


The Super Bowl opened with a touching performance from the Sandy Hook Elementary School Chorus, joined by Grammy and Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson.

26 members of the Sandy Hook Chorus (representing the 26 lives lost in the school shooting) opened the Super Bowl festivities singing “America the Beautiful.” Halfway through the performance Jennifer Hudson joined them, looking absolutely gorgeous in a black and white ensemble. Hudson took over the song with her amazing vocals as the choir backed her.

This isn’t the school’s first musical endeavour since the tragic event that took place on December 14. About one month ago, members of the chorus joined singer-songwriter Ingrid Michaelson to record a version of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” for charity. They performed this song, along with Michaelson, on Good Morning America.

I think it is truly great that these children have this type of outlet to deal with everything they went through following the shooting.

Check out the performance after the jump!

Justin Timberlake Rocks NOLA with Some New Songs & Jay-Z


Justin Timberlake performed his first solo concert in five years on Saturday night in New Orleans. Timberlake not only brought out some old songs, but he sang his new single, “Suit & Tie,” dressed in just that, some new tracks, and Jay-Z!

Timberlake performed his show at DTV SuperFan stadium, where he opened his show with “Like I Love You.” The stage was set-up with a 13-piece band and four backup singers, giving the show a big band feel.

Timberlake performed for nearly two-hours, singing his hits like “My Love,” “Cry Me A River,” and “Summer Love.” But fans in the audience got a special treat when Timberlake decided to play some new songs for them. Timberlake said to the audience:

“If it’s alright with you, I’m about to do a new song right now. This is from my upcoming album.”

He performed a track called “Push and Shove,” which is a slower song and shows off Timberlake’s falsetto. He also performed another new song, “That Girl.”

As for covers of the night, Timberlake did some Michael Jackson and INXS.

But the biggest performances of the night would have to be his performances of “Suit & Tie” and “Sexy/Back.” Jay-Z graced the stage for Timberlake’s new single and Timbaland joined the stage with Timberlake for “Sexy/Back.”

Justin Timberlake is officially back and I know I can’t wait for the new album! So far it’s looking good!

Check out videos from the show, including two new songs, after the jump!

The ad stars a young “nerd” about to sell his soul to the devil, played by William Dafoe, for fame and fortune.

Usher is literally in the commercial for 20 seconds, showing off his dance moves at a club, alongside the nerd. Upton is seen in the commercial for about as long as Usher. She is seen being photographed on the red carpet, with the nerd coming to join her.

Check out the commercial after the jump!

Jennifer Hudson to Sing with Sandy Hook Chorus at Super Bowl


Jennifer Hudson is scheduled to sing “America the Beautiful” with the Sandy Hook Elementary School Chorus live before the Super Bowl on Sunday.

The chorus will perform right before Alicia Keys sings the National Anthem, according to an NFL spokesman.

Singer-songwriter Ingrid Michaelson joined Sandy Hook students in January to record a version of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.” Proceeds from the song’s sale will go to benefit the Newton Youth Academy and the United Way of Western Connecticut.

Sandy Hook Elementary school was the site of a December 14 mass shooting that left 20 first-graders and six adults dead. Twenty-six students will make up the chorus that will be singing at the Super Bowl, in honor of the twenty-six people lost in the shooting.

Beyonce Covers GQ’s ‘Sexiest’ Issue


Beyoncé hasn’t slowed down post Blue Ivy! The latest thing to be added to her list of accomplishments is snagging the cover of GQ’s “100 Sexiest Women of the 21st Century.”

On Wednesday, an Instagram photo of the cover was leaked, but the actual issue will be for their February issue. In the photo that leaked, Beyoncé leaves little to the imagination, wearing a little less than cropped girly jersey and leopard-print panties.

The jersey probably foreshadows Beyoncé’s upcoming Super Bowl half time show performance on February 3. She is also gearing up to release new music, her first album since 2011′s 4.

GQ will release all of the photos from the cover story on January 15.

The Dream, who is heavily involved in Beyoncé’s new music, hinted to Billboard that we will probably hear a few new tracks from her before her Super Bowl performance.

Beyonce Confirmed for Super Bowl Halftime Show

Beyonce will be performing at the Super Bowl XLVII halftime show!

Beyonce confirmed the news via her official website, by posting a picture of herself with those famous football black marks underneath her eyes with the date of the Super Bowl written on them.

Rumors were flying yesterday of Beyonce’s participation in the Super Bowl, when a source told the Associated Press that she would be taking the stage on February 3 during that halftime show in New Orleans at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The source said the official announcement is expected for Wednesday.

Beyonce performed the National Anthem at the 2004 Super Bowl in her hometown of Houston.

All Super Bowl halftime shows come with numerous special guests! Last year’s featured half time performer was Madonna, who brought along with her Cee Lo Green, LMFAO, M.I.A., and Nicki Minaj. There is definitely an endless list of people Beyonce could have performing alongside her. Perhaps a little Destiny’s Child reunion (they do have a greatest hits album coming out soon)? And of course I know everyone would be pulling for a little husband/wife duet with Jay-Z.

Are you excited to see Beyonce perform at the Super Bowl???

Jimmy Fallon Brings Back Tebowie; Impersonates Bieber, Taylor Swift and More During Super Bowl Special

Jimmy Fallon’s post-Super Bowl special was filled with impersonations by Fallon himself, and we all know his impersonations are great!

Fallon said Madonna wasn’t the only choice for the Super Bowl halftime show act and he gives us a little taste of the other choices who auditioned with a little help from the television show The Voice. Fallon gives us impersonations of Justin Bieber, Bruno Mars, Eminem, Josh Groban, Taylor Swift, Pauly D, LMFAO, and he brings back Tebowie!

All the lyrics are changed to reflect the Super Bowl and Groban’s song even mentions the Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl!

He also takes Adele’s ”Rolling In The Deep” and turns it into a song to reflect the social life in Indianapolis.
