Explosions! Everywhere explosions!!
Empress Barbra Streisand has decided to treat this year's Academy Awards audience to a rare musical spectacle…
The Guilt Trip star will perform on stage at the Oscars for the first time in almost 36 years!
Get excited and cue to 1:25 (above) to see Babz singing the theme song to A Star is Born at the 1977 Oscars show (above)!
No word as to what Barbra will serenade us with come February 24th, but we're sure it'll be movie themed and we're crossing our fingers it's Don't Rain on my Parade from Funny Girl!
We cannot get OVER how musically-stuffed the 85th Academy Awards will be!
Adele will host a James Bond orgy with her special tribute performance of Skyfall; we hear Beyoncé and the Les Miz cast may grace the stage as part of a movie musical spectacle, AND Norah Jones is set to sing her adorable Ted theme song!
Belting out our fave movie themes in SO much effing jubilation!
Nope! We know that’s totally what you thought, but Norah Jones is actually bringing Ted the teddy bear to the Oscars.
Well, sort of…
Norah will be performing the Oscar-nominated song from Ted at the award show.
That’s right, in case you missed it, a song from Ted is nominated for an Oscar!
Norah will perform
The music world has sadly lost one of its greats.
Ravi Shankar, the Indian sitar maestro who gained worldwide fame for his collaborations with The Beatles, as well as being the father of Norah Jones, passed away last week after he was admitted to Scripps Memorial Hospital in San Diego and failed to fully recover from surgery.
He was 92.
His wife, Sukanya, and his other daughter, Anoushka, said in a statement:
Girl is Instagram incarnate in all that indie-vintage wear (above)!
Disney darling Vanessa Hudgens and beau Austin Butler got all UP in plenty at an alterna-rockin'-electro jam at this weekend's Outside Lands music festival in San Francisco!
V-Hudge posted her mad lovin' for the Golden Gate Park celebration, writing on Facebook:
Confess your musical mischief, Jason Mraz…we KNOW you’ve got secrets hidden under that fedora!
The 16th season of VH1’s Storytellers will fill our ears with juicy insider info this summer, and some of our FAVE musicians are getting naked (so to speak).
VH1 says of the new installments:
It's not just a new look and a different sound!
It's a whole NEW Norah Jones - and she is NOT effing around!
Check out the just-released music video for the singer's new single, Happy Pills, off of her upcoming album …Little Broken Hearts (above)!
We won't spoil it for you, but believe us when we say we did NOT see where this was going!
It makes it ALL the more bad-ass, though!
Can't wait for the rest of this album! How about U?
Lover of spiritual power ballads?
Rejoice! Melissa Etheridge is recording a new album and it’s going to be sing-a-long-a-licious.
