The late Glee star Cory Monteith was honored by the 2014 Grammys during the In Memoriam montage. The montage featured a rather unfortunate hiccup: Onscreen, his name was spelled “Cory Montieth.” Admittedly, no other names were misspelled, but generally speaking, the goal of the In Memoriam montage is have zero gaffes. All in all, this was not a shining moment in the history of Garmmy Awards. READ FULL STORY

Sure, Justin Bieber may have endangered lives when he was drunk driving and drag racing in Miami. But he gave late night some great material last night, so for that, we can thank him. Jay Leno, Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon, and Conan O’Brien all took the opportunity to rag on America’s favorite/least favorite 19-year-old, and here’s what they had to say: READ FULL STORY
There are five people you meet in heaven, six types of chemical reactions, seven deadly sins… and eight different ways you may react after seeing Justin Bieber’s toothy mugshot for the very first time. What are they — and what type of person is having each one? Let’s start counting: READ FULL STORY
Elton John is declaring his support of the Russian people, and he says they still accept him despite that country’s harsh new anti-gay law.
Passed last year, the so-called “gay propaganda” law bans promotion of “non-traditional sexual relations” to minors.
John said Wednesday that he visited Russia in December concerned that the new law would affect how he was treated as “an openly gay foreigner.” He says he received a warm welcome.
But if foreign visitors are unaffected by the law, John says it has legitimized “vicious homophobia” against gay Russians.
John calls the legislation “deeply dangerous” to the gay and lesbian community, and “deeply divisive” to Russian society.
He volunteered to introduce Russian President Vladimir Putin to gay Russians to help promote understanding.
Some people sing along to boy bands, some laugh at them, and some perform better-than-the-original covers of their songs.
Postmodern Jukebox posted a video of singer Miche Braden performing One Direction’s “Story of my Life,” and she takes the pop song and turns it into a soulful jazz number. Check it out below:

If you thought Robert Downey Jr.’s brown eyes and his sense of humor were the sexiest things about him, you were wrong. Because the man can sang.
Iron Man himself recently joined Sting on stage for a duet of “Driven to Tears.” The two shared a mic in front of a very happy crowd as Downey showed off his soulful, sultry, and downright shocking vocal chops. Needless to say, if I were building a band of Hollywood actors, he would officially be my lead singer. And Johnny Depp would be my guitarist. Actually, that would make for a great reality show.
Watch Downey and Sting duet below:

Do Drake’s newly released ‘Saturday Night Live’ promos poke fun at Degrassi, the Canadian teen soap that starred Drake (then known as Aubrey Graham) for eight years?
Did Jimmy break up with Ashley after she got high on ecstasy and made out with Sean at the end of the school year, prompting her to reinvent herself for Grade 9 as an artsy goth chick with a pixie cut? (The answer to this question, like the previous one, is “yes.”)
Drake, of course, is more than a former teen star; he’s also an accomplished rapper, and an able straight man for the antics of promo costars Bobby Moynihan and Jay Pharoah. But it’s in the clip’s brief, glorious Degrassi segment that he truly shines as a funnyman; let’s hope it’s only a taste of what’s to come on SNL this weekend. At least cross your finger for more material like this and less material like Moynihan and Pharoah talking about beats.
Picture this: You’re Bruce Springsteen’s biggest fan. You’ve seen him in concert at least 130 times; you know the words to every song he’s ever written; one time, he gave you a hug, and you responded by bursting into tears.
Then you find out that your idol spent last night making fun of you on national television.
That’s the curious situation in which New Jersey’s Governor Chris Christie finds himself this morning, days after his administration was first rocked by the scandal I guess we’re officially calling “bridgegate.” (Why? Everyone knows Watergate wasn’t actually about water, right?) Tuesday’s edition of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon featured Fallon breaking out his well-worn Bruce impression for a revamped version of “Born to Run” all about that infamous GWB traffic jam. And partway through the performance, Fallon was joined by none other than Springsteen himself — in a matching cutoff button down, red bandana, and pair of sunglasses. This, too, might make Christie cry… though clearly for different reasons.
Admit it. You love Frozen just as much as we all do.
The animated Disney musical has been enchanting audiences young and old alike since it came out in November, and on Monday, Disney confirmed plans to adapt the musical, based on Hans Christian Andersen’s The Snow Queen, into a full Broadway production! There have been many covers of Frozen songs throughout the Internet, mostly done by adorable little girls, a.k.a., the film’s target demographic. But now some members of the a cappella group Pentatonix have put their own chilly spin on the movie’s score.
But with so many great songs to pick from, which would they choose? Silly snowman, that’s what medleys are for!
