Toby Keith & Kristen Bell To Host The CMT Awards!

Filed under: Music MinuteAwardzKristen Bell

Toby Keith & Kristen Bell CMT

Innesting duo.

Kristen Bell has signed up to co-host CMT Awards!

CMT nominee Toby Keith will help the actress emcee the 11th annual awards next month.

What qualifies K-Bell to host the huge Country event?

She's a fan! Like sloths, the actress says:

"Country music makes me happy."

The award show will be the 31-year-old's first trip to Nashville.

Her fiancé, Dax Shepherd, will be accompanying her on the trip — which could get awkward if she comes face-to-face with her "country crush", Miranda Lambert.

The Biebs Is Nominated For A CMT Award

Filed under: Music MinuteJustin Bieber


What in the 10-gallon-hat-spurs-and-boots-tumbleweed hell? How did this happen?!

The nominees for the 2011 CMT Music Awards are out, and while Taylor Swift is in the lead with three nominations (as she should be), there is one person on the roster that no one expected to be there - Justin Bieber.

Now, if you are a Biebliever, this comes as no surprise to you, but the rest of you, let us assure you that the Biebs is qualified to be nominated. Not too long ago, he recorded a collaboration with Rascal Flatts on the reworked version of That Should Be Me. The CMT voters thought the video was so good, they nominated it in the Collaborative Video of the Year category.

Or, you know, they figured out that putting Justin's face up for 5 minutes on any award show will double their ratings.

Congrats, JB! Make room for it in the trophy case!

Nigel Lythgoe Developing New Country Music Singing Competition!


He's proven time and time again that the shows he produces are successful, so we doubt that this will be any different!

American Idol executive producer Nigel Lythgoe, and his son, Simon, have teamed up for a brand new country music singing-songwriting competition, called CMT's Next Superstar!

Starting up in April, the ten episode series will feature a cast full of hopefuls traveling around to various locations and recording and writing music inspired by them! The finale will be held at Nashville's Ryman auditorium, and the winner will be announced during the CMT Awards in June, along with their first single!

And in case you were concerned that this sounds a little bit too much like Nashville Star, Simon explains:

"No one episode is the same. We’re changing locations all the time, shooting in Nashville, Memphis and Texas. Every challenge is different. On Nashville Star, they didn’t have media challenges. We’re giving them radio training and putting them through photo shoots and music video challenges. We’re putting them on a tour bus. You're really going to get to know these contestants really well, just by being with them 24-7. We're putting the onus on the contestants, where they can really make the song their own. We will pick the genres and they have to then turn it into a country song, but make it their own. So if they want a fiddle, they can have it. If they want a steel guitar, they've got it. They can go their own their path, but they are responsible for how they perform. We'll give them the tools, they have to take control of it. We're not the run-of-the-mill, studio-based, glitz and glamour show. Similar to Idol, we will have a guest judge each week who specializes in a particular field. If we're shooting a music video, which is one of the challenges, we will show all the backstage stuff, the director, the casting, how they produce it. Then we'll stream it to film students who vote to determine who the bottom two contestants are. Otherwise the judges decide."

And Nigel continues:

"Country music is all about storytelling, personalities and putting yourself into the songs. This show is not about going to a set, it's about being in a location that has history to it. We're down and dirty in the heart of Nashville. It not just going to be another American Idol production, why would I be involved in that? I've got the best. From my point of view, I want to change it up totally."


It sounds like a pretty comprehensive, intense, but AMAZING competition!

We're definitely interested in checking this out when it airs!

Keep us posted, guys! We're looking forward to this one!

When Snooki Met The MANiston!

Filed under: Jennifer AnistonAwardzSnooki


We just think that she was being the polite and gracious young lady that she naturally is!!

Our most beloved Snooki Snickers had the misfortune pleasure of meeting Miz Jennifer Aniston at the CMT Music Awards last night, and bitch didn't even know who the Jersey Shore star was!

How rude!

Snooki reveals:

"I was hoping she would know who I was, but I don’t think so. I said, ‘Hi, I’m Snooki, I’m a really big fan and you are gorgeous.’ She said, Thank you.' She was so polite. I was scared to even talk! I was nervous. She is so beautiful and so nice in person!"

Whatevs! We think Snookers is being faaar too kind!

Don't be afraid of the Maniston, bb!

You can dish on what a frigid bitch she was to US!
