| Filed under: Music MinuteColdplayCharityGame Of ThronesPeter DinklageEmilia Clarke

Your Reaction?

We knew Red Nose Day was going to do whatever it took to raise money on Thursday night, but the NBC special really pulled out all the stops with its Game of Thrones parody!

Apparently, Chris Martin and the rest of Coldplay was so intent on making their GoT musical, that they were able to get most of the cast from the hit HBO fantasy series to join.

We're talking fan favorites like Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage, and Kit Harrington, and even some early season actors like Rose Leslie and Mark Addy!

It's a really well-done video and is by far the best thing produced for the three-hour charity event!

Your Reaction?

Keith doesn't need American Idol – He can get plenty of TV appearances on his own!

As you may have noticed by now, NBC has been busy airing a charity special called Red Nose Day all Thursday night.

And while Ed Sheeran and U2 have already performed, Keith Urban really touched audiences with his rendition of the classic Pink Houses.

We hope they were able to raise the money they were aiming for.

| Filed under: AnglophiliaMusic MinuteBonoCharity

Your Reaction?

We knew Red Nose Day was a British charity, but we didn't expect all of the acts to be from across the pond!

No complaints here, though, because in addition to Ed Sheeran's uplifting duet with Kermit the Frog, U2 gave an empowering performance of their own.

Bono and Co. sang Song for Someone during NBC's fundraiser, and it was the best they've sounded live in a while!

Their act was cut with video of struggling children from around the world… and it was just a very moving moment.

Did U take part in Red Nose Day??

Hailee Steinfeld is just KILLING it!

Pitch Perfect 2 destroyed the competition in its opening weekend at the box office, and the film's soundtrack skyrocketed to number one on the Billboard charts!

So now, the 18-year-old stepping out from the shadows of such a phenomenal cast and into her own Flashlight spotlight.

Needless to say, the company's executive vice president, Charlie Walk, is PUMPED to have her on board:

"The moment that we met Hailee we found her commitment to music inspiring. She has the vision, natural talent, and dedication to compete at the highest level. We are thrilled to be part of her musical journey."

If her music is going to be anything like her version of Jessie J's hit from the Pitch Perfect sequel, we're thrilled! But the question is… are YOU?

Did Paul McCartney Come Up With His Part Of Kanye West's All Day More Than 40 Years Ago???

| Filed under: Music MinuteKanye WestPaul McCartney

Apparently Macca was writing songs for Kanye DECADES ago!!

We always knew The Beatles were way ahead of their time, but this is NUTS!

Kanye West has never been one to shy away from risk when it comes to his music, so when he recruited the virtually unknown British pop star Paul McCartney for his new song All Day, we weren't TOO surprised!

But if you think Macca's contribution was a last minute decision, then you're DEAD wrong! In fact, it looks like he wrote his portion of the song DECADES ago!!

[ Related: Kanye West's Fans Have NO Idea Who Paul McCartney Is! ]

A very observant Redditor recently noticed that Paul's whistling portion of the song sounds an awful lot like his 1970 song, Two Fingers! And you don't have to take our word for it! You can listen for yourself at the 1:14 mark below:

Kelly Clarkson Jokingly Threatens To Fire Her Nanny If She Shows River Rose From Justin To Kelly!

kelly clarkson doesnt want daughter to see film

It seems Kelly Clarkson is still not over her flop, From Justin To Kelly.

In a recent interview, the Heartbeat Song singer was asked if she would want to burn all copies of the modern musical.

[ Related: Nick Jonas Will Be Performing With WHICH Superstar?! ]

She quipped:

"No, I think I would have to own it first. But that is something I will look into."

LOLz! Apparently, she has no interest in ever seeing the movie again — and does NOT want her daughter, River Rose, to see it either.

She shared:

"I have a little joke with our nanny, because she told me she loves that movie. She was like, 'My roommate and I used to watch it all the time! I'm totally going to show your daughter From Justin to Kelly.' I'm like, 'I will fire you.'"

But Kelly, children learn from our mistakes? WE KID!!

However, by the time River is old enough to see the movie, American Idol will have been long off the air so we doubt she'd get the cultural significance! Tragic!

49 Students Animated Taylor Swift's Shake It Off Music Video! Watch The Incredibly Creative Result Here!

| Filed under: Music MinuteTaylor Swift

no title

You've never seen Taylor Swift like this before — and if you did, you were probably on strong hallucinogenics!

The Plasmatic Research Laboratory is a new animation studio at the University of Newcastle in Australia — and they made the coolest animation project ever!

49 students and animators were given 52 frames each of Swifty's Shake It Off music video and were assigned to animate it however they wanted to!

They produced 2,767 total frames using a technique called rotoscoping. This is where animators trace over footage frame by frame before letting their own creativity take action with different colors and visuals!

Some students took a more realistic approach, while other frames looked like a straight up acid trip — but the video (below) definitely showcases the talent and imagination of these students!
