At 9:00 am Eastern time, Ryan Seacrest announced the lineup for the 2012 iHeart Music Fest which will be taking place September 21st & 22nd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The lineup, while not as stacked as last year, still features a who’s who of the music industry.
Details are beginning to come out for the 54th annual Grammy Awards, such as the shows open and closing performances, both by Lady Gaga, and the host, LL Cool J.
Nielsen Soundscan, which tracks sales of music, has released a list of the Top 10 digital acts of all time, and even though she’s only been in the game since 2005 Rihanna has taken the top spot earning a pretty penny in the digital game.
MTV has confirmed the celebrity hidden-camera series is returning to the network. This comes more than a year after rumors had started saying that the show will return with Justin Bieber as the host.
Taylor Swift is currently on her Speak Now Tour, to support her album of the same name. Along the way she has has some surprise guest coming out and performing with her, and a lot of them have been boosting her street cred. Maybe she is preparing for her eventual Grammy showdown with Kanye West next February.
So about a month and a half ago I posted some Grammy predictions, which are linked below. It was also announced that they had done away with some awards, which I feel is a good thing because it makes being nominated and winning a Grammy more prestigious. Which has been a complaint of many people, myself included, over recent years. For me the show lost A LOT of credibility, in 2008 when The Shop Boys and Soulja Boy were nominated (yes you did read that correctly). There is one thing that annoys me about award shows including the Grammy’s.
I have to say I’m loving that Facebook has decided to get back into posting these ‘On This Day,’ posts, old statuses that were posted, well on this day in past years. I was just getting ready to go to bed when I logged into Facebook and noticed the status that you see above. Two years ago tonight this happened:Vodpod videos no longer available.
