Adam Levine and Alicia Keys performed “Girl on Fire” Sunday at the Grammys, with the Maroon 5 frontman stepping in for Nicki Minaj on music’s biggest night.
Decked out in slick black slacks and black shirt, Levine took the stage with his band to perform “Daylight” before Alicia Keys joined them and the duo.
Alicia killed it on the drums. After a verse of “Girl,” they brought it back around with “Daylight,” then ended things with some more “Fire.” And it rocked:Adam Levine & Alicia Keys Grammy Performance 2013

Jay-Z dropped the zinger of the night on The-Dream at the Grammy Awards Sunday night, turning a quick acceptance speech into an LOL moment.
After Frank Ocean and Terius “The-Dream” Nash accepted the award for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration (“No Church in the Wild”), Jay-Z leaned in:Jay-Z Disses The-Dream at Grammy Awards

Jennifer Lawrence debuted a new, gothic look that made her nearly unrecognizable on the red carpet at the Toronto International Film Festival on Saturday.
J-Law wore a strapless black and red Christian Dior Haute Couture gown and black Dior shoes, a somewhat severe, gothic look that was nonetheless elegant.
A fine line, for sure, but it works. How does it stack up with some of her past red carpet looks, though? That’s for you toMore >
This is an interesting footnote to the kiss between Rihanna and Chris Brown at last night’s MTV Video Music Awards … she’s apparently not a big Drake fan.
In the video below – taken seconds after Drake and Lil’ Wayne and crew went to go claim their award for Best Hip-Hop Video – the camera zooms in on Rih.
She appears to be mouthing “I hate those a$$holes.”
Sitting just a few seats down from Drake, Weezy and Nicki Minaj, Rihanna also refused to clap for the rapper when his name was announced Thursday.

Two talented singers. Two different styles.
Before Taylor Swift’s stage-diving VMA performance, she walked the red carpet in a sleek white J. Mendel pantsuit and classic red lips at the annual MTV gala.
Meanwhile, Alicia Keys rocked a one-shoulder, draped silver gown and asymmetrical ‘do to boot before her collaboration with Nicki Minaj (and Gabby Douglas).

Whitney Houston’s close friend and The Bodyguard co-star Kevin Costner delivered a touching speech at her funeral yesterday in Newark, New Jersey.
He recalled to mourners gathered at the church and fans watching online that Houston, despite her fame, was a humble woman who doubted herself.
“The greatest pop star in the world didn’t think she was good enough,” Costner, 57, said of Houston, who died of a possible overdose last week at 48.
“There were a thousand things that seemed to her to be wrong.”
Kevin said there were many men who could’veMore >
After days spent arguing with Whitney Houston’s family over whether or not he’d attend his ex-wife funeral, multiple sources confirm that Bobby Brown continued arguing with his former in-laws today.
And actually left the memorial after just 20 minutes as a result.
Both E! News and TMZ report that Brown brought an entourage of nine people in to the Newark church. It’s unclear exactly what happened from there, but the singer was spotted exiting the house of worship shortly after the service began.
“I am at Whitney’s funeral. I spoke with Bobby Brown trying to calm him down and not distractMore >
“She would call you for no reason at all, but just to say ‘hi.’ She was a beautiful human being – really caring, beautiful, thoughtful.”
So said Alicia Keys today, holding back tears, prior to breaking into a rendition of “Send Me An Angel” in honor of the late Whitney Houston. Watch for yourself now:
Stevie Wonder also performed at the memorial, while Houston’s former co-star in The Bodyguard was applauded for his beautiful tribute to the part-time actress.

During an emotional Whitney Houston funeral today, which included moving speeches from friends and loved ones, Stevie Wonder took to the piano at one point and shared memories of the late artist.
He praised God for simply allowing him to live at the same time at Houston, talked about recording a duet with her in the studio and then made onlookers laugh by owning up for a mini crush on the legend.
Wonder then went ahead and did what he does best: sing beautifully. Watch and listen to him pay tribute to his friend now:

It’s episode three of The Voice’s blind auditions, with Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green, Christina Aguilera and Blake Shelton back in their red-spinning seats to evaluate talent.
Actually, they’ve never left those seats. They’re still in the same clothes. Busted! Seriously, this was one marathon audition day if it was chopped up into three episodes.
Anyway, who stood out last night and joined Teams Adam, Cee Lo, Blake and Xtina? Let’s break down the performances of some of Monday’s top Voice auditions …

The body of Whitney Houston is on its way to New Jersey.
Insiders tell TMZ the singer is actually being transported east on Tyler Perry’s private jet, as that movie mogul offered up its services as soon as he arrived at the Beverly Hills Hilton on Saturday.
According to NBC New York, meanwhile, a funeral will take place later this week in Newark, where mourners have already gathered, leaving flowers and signs outside the church Houston sang at as a child.

Oprah Winfrey took to Twitter last night to ask Nielsen viewers to watch her cable network OWN instead of the Grammy Awards, a pathetic move that drew criticism from her OWN followers and the market research company alike.
“Every 1 who can please turn to OWN especially if u have a Nielsen box,” she tweeted Sunday at the start Oprah’s Next Chapter and the mega-rated Grammys.
She later added, “Commercial Grammy people… u can turn to OWN.”
The tweets caused a backlash on the social networking site, with some readers – fans of O, no less – accusing her of “begging for viewers” and beingMore >
Adele definitely got the best of Taylor Swift – and the entire music world – winning six out of a possible six honors at the 2012 Grammy Awards in L.A. Sunday night.
Can she continue her unbeaten streak with a win in this style showdown? That remains to be seen, though the British songstress looked great on the red carpet.
