It's official: the nominees for the 2014 Academy Awards are out, and when it comes to Best Original Song, we're having a tough time picking our one-to-win. Pharrell Williams is nominated for his song for the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack, "Happy", while U2's beautiful contribution to the film Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom is also up for an award.
There have been even more big names added to the 56th annual GRAMMY Awards performers list, and they're getting us excited for Music's Biggest Night. First up is the announcement of Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr "coming together" at the awards show, in honor of the 2014 Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award they're accepting for their work with the Beatles.
We're "speechless" — engaged couple Ciara and Future have confirmed that they are pregnant! The R&B singer and the rapper/producer have been together ever since they worked on Ciara's last album, and the star revealed her pregnancy on the morning TV show The View for the world to see.
Say "hey ya", everybody: one of rap's most respected duos is back! Outkast first made the news back when Coachella 2014 was starting to come together, with rumors being spread that the legendary twosome would be reuniting to headline the fest. Lo and behold, the rumors were true, and now the "Roses" hit makers have taken to their website to announce their plan of hitting up over 40 tours this year.
The 2014 People's Choice Awards took place last night, and when it came to the musical category, the world's biggest pop stars definitely won big. Britney Spears won her very first PCA at the event for Favorite Pop Artist, while Justin Timberlake took home three shiny new trophies for himself: Favorite Male Artist, Favorite R&B Artist, and the coveted Favorite Album for his epic 20/20 Experience record.
It's going down, y'all: Pitbull ft. Ke$ha's massive club-banger "Timber" is finally at the no.1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. That's right, another female/male pop star pairing has officially stepped down to the number 3 spot — Eminem ft. Rihanna's "The Monster" — after reigning supreme for four weeks. You'd better move, you'd better dance!
Available January 21st, the 2014 GRAMMY Nominees album features 18 songs from the hottest artists nominated at Music's Biggest Night.

The 56th annual GRAMMY Awards will be taking place Sunday, January 26th, and the first round of performers have been officially confirmed. Standing out on the list of performers is electronic duo Daft Punk, who came back in 2013 for their massive album Random Access Memories, seeing as their last televised performance was at the 2008 GRAMMYs. It has recently been confirmed that Motown heavy-hitter Stevie Wonder will hit the stage with the pair, as well as Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers. Music's biggest night will also host Pink and fun. frontman Nate Ruess, who will be singing their smash hit "Just Give Me A Reason", which was one of the biggest songs of the past year.
Miley Cyrus dropped a brand new video for her song "Adore You" over the holiday break and has been drawing quite a bit of controversy as a result. (You don't say!) That's because the video is made up almost entirely of shots of Miley Cyrus writhing under white bed sheets. And let's just say she's really, ahem, feelin herself in the clip.
Every Thursday, an updated version of the Billboard Hot 100 is released, so today we are taking a look at the biggest songs in the country right now. Holding the no.1 spot, unsurprisingly, is Eminem ft. Rihanna's "The Monster," and will most likely remain there into next week. First "Love The Way You Lie" and now "The Monster"? It seems as though anytime Em recruits Rihanna to sing a chorus it results in a bonafide hit. (And a steamy music video to boot!) Holding the number 2 spot is Pitbull ft. Ke$ha's "Timber", the wildly popular dance track that fuses country and EDM. Sing it with me now: "It's goin' down, I'm yellin' Timber!"
