This year was definitely interesting as far as performances go. The trend of female slayers continues, as both Carrie Underwood and Nelly Furtado took the awards for best performances. Goodie Mob definitely gave some points to the guys performances by slaying the EPIC ‘Fight To Win’ track, aside from the awkward one legged dancer they had.
While Justin Bieber is still trying to make ‘swaggie’ happen and Usher, while putting on a decent performance, is still promoting his Street Fighter dance track ‘Scream’. Chris Brown mimes the whole song while putting on a amazing dance number, but lets be honest, we have seen what he can do and we would like him to progress a little more.
Check out the performances below!
Let’s focus on this guys talent one more time, because his voice is pure sex and I can’t get over it. From his acoustic video for ‘The Last Train‘, to his ‘Sick Love‘ music video he shocks me every new performance/song he puts out. This song, and every song he has made, has been on repeat ever since. I told you before, now I will tell you again:
WATCH OUT 2012!!
Also, regardless of what any of those Youtube comments say, this guy is pure talent and it doesn’t matter what he looks like, I don’t know him personally, but all I know is that on twitter he comes across as a genuine person, and he definitely has the support of Long Live Music, because of his amazing talent! I can’t wait for him to take over the States!
After her highly criticized SNL performance, which I might add wasn’t as disastrous as everyone is making it out to be, she brings it all back with this stunning performance of ‘Video Games’ on American Idol. Her confidence has grown quite a bit, and her voice is just getting better and better each time I see her. Let’s hope she reschedules that North American tour, because I would love to see her live!
Watch it below!
I really can’t stress how good this guy is! I recently featured him in one of my Artist Spotlight posts, and he just dropped another acoustic video for a track titled ‘The Last Train’, paying a fitting soulful tribute to the late legend Etta James. I’m not sure where the track is from, I’m guessing from his upcoming album, but either way it doesn’t matter because it’s AMAZING!
If you don’t know him, get yourself educated because he is going far! Watch out for this guy this year!

Tonights performances were very interesting, there were some by ‘artists’ that needed their nominations taken away (Nicki Minaj) and some that basically showed why they were owning the world (Adele), and even a heartfelt performance of the late legend Whitney Houston.
In addition, tonight Adele tied the record for winning the most Grammy awards in one night by a female with a total of 6 grammy’s tonight, sharing that record with Beyonce. While Adele is only 23 years old and just on her 2nd album in her career, I would say she is well on her way to plenty more records to be broken.
Anyway check out performances from the likes of Chris Brown, Rihanna, Coldplay, Adele, Nicki Minaj and many more after the Jump!
(I will post the others as soon as they are put up)
The ever so famous Superbowl halftime show was just a few hours ago with the one and only Madonna. I have heard mixed reviews on the whole thing, but I think she was alright up and till she started acting 21. That whole LMFAO addition was just a mess, then her dancing got a little too dirty for her age, she then proceeded to bring out Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. to perform the fail of a song ‘Give Me All Your Luvin’. She did kind of redeem herself with the accompany of Cee-Lo Green, but then lost all credibility when she put the ‘World Peace’ message after all that grinding. SERIOUSLY?
