THE Brit Awards are back for another year - and with them come some memorable moments from the past. We have your top ten best bits from since the show over the last 40 years. 1) Geri Horner’s boob flash In 1997 the Spice Girls were at the top of their game, which also saw them win their first Brit Award. But for an excitable Geri Horner - known then as Geri Halliwell - that night will be remembered as the moment she flashed her boobs to the world. After wowing the audiences in THAT iconic Union Jack dress, Ginger Spice made a quick change into a busty Jessica Rabbit style red sequinned dress. Unfortunately the gown couldn't control her breasts, and as soon as she raised her arm in the air, out they popped for the audience and viewers at home to see. 2) Madonna falling over on stage Who could forget Madonna's epic fall during her Brits performance in 2015. It all went horribly wrong for the Queen of Pop when she came out on stage dressed as a Matador for a performance … [Read more...] about Brits 2019 – the top 10 best ever moments from the UK’s biggest music awards show

NBC has nabbed The Billboard Music Awards in a multi-year deal with Dick Clark Prods. to begin in 2018. Related Kelly Clarkson Returns To Host 2019 Billboard Music Awards The awards show became available after its contract with ABC expired after the 2017 broadcast in May. I hear the field was competitive, with both traditional networks and digital platforms pursuing. NBC had been looking to add a music awards show to its lineup. It launched the iHeartRadio Music Awards in 2014 and aired it for two years though it couldn’t break through to establish a sizable footprint. One of NBC’s selling points that likely helped it land the Billboard Music Awards is the fact that the network has year-round music-themed series franchises with The Voice and America’s Got Talent, in addition to The Tonight Show, Saturday Night Live and Jennifer Lopez’s dance competition World Of Dance, which all feature musical performances, and the annual live musicals. “We are … [Read more...] about The Billboard Music Awards Moves From ABC To NBC
In January 2018, I participated in the second annual Louisville Rock Lottery, where 25 musicians were invited to Headliners Music Hall in the morning to have their names randomly drawn, creating five bands. Then, the newly-formed bands went to different rehearsal spaces across town to write a few original songs in 12 hours for a charity concert that same night. When it was time to perform our new songs, the show was packed, and all the bands were impressive. During our set, where I played keys and sang, I acknowledged the venue as well as the event’s organizer. After this moment of gratitude, I used the platform to make a statement that, in some aspects, overshadowed my entire experience of the day. I peered into the predominately-white crowd, took a deep breath and sarcastically said “… give me a round of applause for being the only brother on this stage tonight.” The audience cheered in agreement, warming my heart, but the fact remained: I was the only … [Read more...] about Music, diversity, inclusion and the Louisville Rock Lottery
While hosting the 54th Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday night, country legend Reba McEntire called out apparent sexism from the academy. McEntire was perturbed that not one female was nominated for the show's coveted "entertainer of the year" award, and made her grievance clear as she was on the MGM Grand Garden Arena stage in Las Vegas. "Do you know it snowed in Las Vegas just a few weeks ago?" cracked the night's host. "It was so cold, it froze us women out of entertainer of the year." "But you know what, that didn't bother Kacey Musgraves, because she's been too busy carrying all of her Grammys around," McEntire added. The 64-year-old also quipped earlier on stage that she has "no time" to be tired as a "woman in the music business." As highlighted by The Hollywood Reporter, there were also no women nominated for the “entertainer of the year" award at the 2018 ACM awards. "The award has been handed out 48 times since 1971, though only eight women have taken it home. … [Read more...] about WATCH: Reba McEntire Calls Out ‘Sexism’ At Country Music Awards
