2015 Grammy Awards: My Favorite Moments

In: Donovan, Music, TV Shows

Throughout the night, only a handful of awards were presented during the 57th Grammy Awards. The marathon telecast instead opted to show performances. Some were memorable while others almost put me to sleep. Seriously, I have no idea what Ariana Grande was thinking. She has so many far superior songs than the ballad she chose.

By far, my favorite was Sia’s latest performance of her smash hit “Chandelier.” Maddie was once again on hand to execute some wicked contemporary choreography but this time she was joined by the hilarious Kristen Wiig. I’m still in shock the Aussie singer lost out Best Video to Pharrell Williams’ “Happy.” #robbed

Other highlights came from female veterans. Madonna injected some much needed energy in a night filled with ballads. Say what you will, but the 56-year-old can still deliver a fun pop performance. Meanwhile, Annie Lennox cast a spell on the audience when she joined Hozier. Mary J. Blige did the same when she paired up with Best New Artist Sam Smith on his ubiquitous hit, “Stay With Me.”

Beyonce closed out the show by delivering a soaring gospel number. Instead of being accompanied by women on stage, Bey opted to feature men who have suffered and lived. “I felt like this is an opportunity to show the strength and vulnerability in black men,” she revealed. Check out her unforgettable performance below along with the others. Be sure to weigh in on your favorite Grammy performances.

The time has finally arrived. It’s time to crown the Season 5 winner of The Voice? While the main purpose of tonight’s show is to reveal the results, there were plenty other highlights. I’m not even going to sugarcoat it. Lady Gaga’s surprise duet with Christina Aguilera on “Do What You Want” was epic. R. Kelly who? They harmonized beautifully, drank champagne and were overall FIERCE. These two need to head to the recording studio immediately. Check out that performance below, along with the others and the results.

Nothing says true love like getting thrown off a mechanical bull with your loved one ;) For their sake, I hope John Mayer and Katy Perry stay together forever. It’d be painful for the dumpee to stumble upon their “Who You Love” visual during a moment of weakness. That’s the sucky thing about appearing on-screen with your real-life lover. When things go bad, accidentally looking back at happier times could open a floodgate of tears. I know I would.

Mayer and Perry dropped by ABC’s Good Morning America to premiere the visual for “Who You Love.” Just like the track itself, the video is simplistic but beautiful and heartfelt. Directed by Sophie Muller (Rihanna “Stay”), it shows couples including John and Katy riding a mechanical bull in slow-motion. For me, the most beautiful moments are when Mayer and Perry look into each other eyes and sing. Either they’re really in love or fantastic actors. I’m thinking the former. Kate Winslet and Daniel Day Lewis they are not. Check out the video below.

The Grindr Best Of 2013 Awards

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Donovan, Totally GAY!

Award season is officially underway! Even Grindr is getting in on the action. They recently released their best of 2013 year end list. From gay icon of the year (Neil Patrick Harris) to best comeback of the year (Netflix), users of the ubiquitous hookup app made their voice heard on a multitude of categories.

2013 was a banner year of celebrities coming out. Not surprisingly with all the headlines he generated, Wentworth Miller earned Grindr’s best coming out story. Solid choice. I was lucky enough to witness Miller’s first appearance after coming out at the HRC Gala Dinner in Seattle.

Along with revealing the best of the best in the past year, Grindr also weighed in on what they expect will be big and make headlines in 2014. Find out below who they think the next celebrity to come out is and what will become obsolete.

Did you catch Lady Gaga’s holiday special on ABC? I didn’t, but stumbled upon the videos of the duets from the extravaganza. After checking them out, I’m half tempted to watch the entire thing. Perhaps, I’ll do it later this weekend as I’m nursing one of my hangovers ;)

During Lady Gaga & The Muppets’ Holiday Spectacular, the 27-year-old pop star enlisted some expected and some not so expected duet partners. While Elton John and RuPaul are a given, seeing Joseph Gordon-Levitt join Mother Monster on “Baby It’s Cold Outside” was a pleasant surprise. Random, but appreciated. My favorite of the duets though has to be the one with RuPaul. They’re like two peas in a pod those two. The Drag Race host was serving fierceness from every pore of her body. Hunty definitely WEEEERKED it.

Clearly, Gaga enjoyed her time with the furry bunch. She’s set to join them on their eight film feature, Muppets Most Wanted, opening March 21. In the meantime, check out the vids below.

songs-for-philippines-charity-album

In the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan where thousands of lives were lost, the recording industry is banding together to raise money for the relief efforts. The three major record labels- Sony, Warner Music and Universal- created a compilation album titled Songs for the Philippines. It features 39 hit songs from some of the biggest names in the business.

Spanning multiple genres, you’ll find music from Justin Timberlake, Bob Dylan, Josh Groban, P!nk, Madonna and countless others. While some tracks like “Carry On” by Bruno Mars, “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)” by Kelly Clarkson and “Brave” from Sara Bareilles feel appropriate, others seem out of place. “Best Song Ever” by One Direction and “Feel This Moment” by Pitbull and Christina Aguilera have me scratching my head. Oh well, I suppose casting the net a little wider doesn’t hurt. It’s nice to see artists with Filipino heritage also taking part, including Jessica Sanchez, Black Eyed Peas’ apl.de.ap and Mars.

All the artists, record companies and music publishers working on the project have waived fees. The compilation album is available on iTunes for only $9.99 with all proceeds being donated to the cause. Even if you have several of the tracks already in your music collection, I urge you to purchase the album. It’s a small price to shell out to help so many. On a day where many of us have so much to be thankful for, it’s nice to think of others who are less fortunate. If you want to donate more, there’s a link to the Red Cross from iTunes.

2013-amas-performances-winners

The 41th annual American Music Awards took place at Los Angeles’ Nokia Theatre Live on Sunday night with Mr. Worldwide aka Pitbull hosting. Random choice, right?

Heading into the evening, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis had the most nominations with six. Even though they nabbed two AMAs, Taylor Swift was the big winner of the night. The 23-year-old singer won four awards – Artist of the Year, Favorite Country Female Artist, Favorite Pop/Rock Female Artist, and Favorite Country Album for Red. It was her third time winning the year’s top prize!

The top male dog was Justin Timberlake who walked away with three statues. Other multiple winners were One Direction and Rihanna. The AMAs bestowed the latter with their first ever Icon Award which was presented to her by her mom. Adorable.

With regards to performances, Lady Gaga in my opinion stole the show alongside R. Kelly with their sexually-charged tribute to JFK and Marilyn Monroe. Other memorable highlights include Katy Perry’s Japanese-themed “Conditionally” number, DWTS’ Maks Chmerkovskiy tossing around J. Lo during her Celia Cruz homage, Miley Cyrus being accompanied by a giant kitty and Christina Aguilera’s beautiful duet with A Great Big World.

On the flip side, I was underwhelmed with both Ariana Grande and TLC. The former was fantastic vocally but a tad boring, while the latter served practically zero energy during their “Waterfalls” performance with Lil Mama subbing in for the late Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes. Check out all the performances and winners below.
