Non-Stop Action! 15 Music Videos You Won't BELIEVE Were Filmed In One Take!

It seems like every music video these days is a big production (or a straight up Hollywood blockbuster, if you're Taylor Swift) and making one is no walk in the park.

This especially rings true for the artists who are brave enough to create an entire video in just one take!

Though it might not sound like much more work than performing at a concert, some of the more extravagant one-shot music videos require countless hours of preparation and rehearsals to perfect the timing of one long, continuous shot.

Some of our faves like Tay's We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together and Elton John's I Want Love (featuring a pre-Iron Man Robert Downey Jr.) add serious theatrics to the one-shot format.

And elaborate vids like Kylie Minogue's Come Into My World completely flip the genre on its head and result in some fascinating visual tricks.

Ch-ch-check out all the best one-take videos from Miley Cyrus, Gwen Stefani, OK Go, and more (below)!

Mariah Carey & Elton John Just Reportedly Made MILLIONS Performing At Russian Billionaire Heiress' Wedding!

Well we guess she officially survived her New Year's Eve disaster!

Mariah Carey and Elton John are undoubtedly two of the biggest acts in the entire world… but just in case you thought differently, Russian billionaire Valery Kogan is here to set you straight.

That's because the airport magnate just reportedly paid the music legends roughly $4.22 MILLION to perform at his granddaughter's wedding over the weekend!

Apparently, 19-year-old Irene Kogan — heiress to Moscow's Domodedovo Airport fortune — wed Daniel Kevey at London's Landmark Hotel on Saturday… with We Belong Together selected as the couple's wedding song!

It's unclear exactly how the multiple millions were split up between Mariah and Elton, but whichever way you slice it, they both made serious bank for playing the 9-hour reception.

Plus, Mimi actually sounded like her old self again!!! (We guess that means Dick Clark Productions just didn't pay her well enough…)

Bristol Palin Says Elton John, Aretha Franklin, & 9 Other Artists Are All 'Sissies' For Skipping Trump's Inauguration…

She can see sissies from her house!

Bristol Palin's biggest claim to fame — apart from her mother's name — is her time spent on Dancing with the Stars… which technically makes her qualified to speak for fellow reality TV villain Donald Trump, to some degree.

Man, political punditry has gone downhill… and it started so low to begin with…

As you're surely aware by now, the current President-elect/former Celebrity Apprentice host is just three weeks away from being sworn into office, and yet he STILL doesn't have any A-Listers scheduled to perform for his inauguration!

Sure, Jackie Evancho, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and at least some of The Rockettes will be there on January 20… but we're more intrigued by who's NOT going. And so is Bristol, apparently.

In fact, the 26-year-old mother-of-two just called ELEVEN different artists who've publicly declined Trump's invitation "Sissies" in a blog post on Wednesday!!

That's right — Elton John, Céline Dion, Aretha Franklin, Katy Perry,

After singing a song in memory of John Lennon, the 69-year-old fought back tears when he spoke about the late Wham! frontman, telling the audience:

"I only wish George was here to sing it with me."

Elton then played his ballad Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me, which the duo memorably dueted on back in 1991.

A concertgoer said the singer was consoled by a band member after the performance and the crowd gave him a standing ovation, telling the Daily Mail:

the beach boys consider trump inauguration offer

Yes. No. Maybe so?

It appears as though Donald Trump is finally closing in on securing an A-lister to perform at his big inauguration. While Drumpf's camp has already tapped America's Got Talent alum Jackie Evancho to sing the national anthem, as well as enlisted the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the Radio City Rockettes to perform during the presidential festivities, they may FINALLY snag the big star they were so desperate for!

The businessman has asked The Beach Boys to perform at the inauguration and… they haven't said no! Although, the group (fronted by Mike Love, without his cousin/cofounder Brian Wilson) hasn't said yes either.

Damn right!

Even though Donald Trump has won the election, it doesn't mean celebs are lining up to meet or perform for the next President.

Trump is obviously having a hard time landing an A-list performer for his inauguration and reportedly even tried to bribe some singers!
