Palladia is airing The Killers‘ full Live From The Artists Den concert Wednesday, April 23 at 9/8C. We’ve got a sneak of the foursome rocking their platinum synth-pop hit “Human” from the first single from the band’s third studio album Day & Age at Capitale in New York City’s Chinatown.

Palladia is airing Robert Plant‘s full Live From The Artists Den concert Wednesday, April 9 at 9/8C. We’ve got a sneak of the trailblazing Led Zeppelin frontman rocking fan-favorite cover “Satan Your Kingdom Must Come Down” from the self-titled debut of his short-lived group Band Of Joy at the War Memorial Auditorium in Nashville, TN.
Ten years ago this week everyone’s fantasy boyfriend Usher released his diamond-selling juggernaut Confessions spawning five Billboard Hot 100 Top 10 hits, four of which reached No. 1, solidifying his reputation as a definitive worldwide R&B badass. We’ve already been celebrating the milestone of the record breaking hit, but our commemoration wouldn’t let be complete without a few words from the man himself. We hounded Usher for fifty-eleven days and um-teen hours until he graciously found time in between his busy schedule of shooting The Voice and recording a new album to answer our questions about the anniversary via email (yaaaaasssss!).
Ten years ago today Usher released Confessions, the album that took him from rising R&B star and arguably launched him into pop royalty territory. If nothing else Mr. Entertainment made history with those 17 tracks (21 songs including “My Boo” if you copped the special edition with the poster!) selling nearly 1.1 million units in its first week – the highest-ever chart debut for an R&B artist, the second-highest debut for a male artist, the biggest selling album since Michael Jackson‘s “Thriller,” and the seventh-highest debut of in SoundScans history at that time. I’m also almost certain U-S-H-E-R is responsible for any child conceived in 2004 and put a strain on every relationship in the audience at any of The Truth tour shows.
Palladia is airing Imagine Dragon‘s full Live From The Artists Den concert Wednesday, March 26 at 9/8C. We’ve got a sneak of the record-breaking rockers performing their smash hit “Radioactive” at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre in Los Angeles. It’s almost kismet that the Las Vegas band played their 15-song set at a historic venue that broke new ground for women’s rights when Imagine Dragon’s six-times platinum single, after logging 80 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100, is now the longest charting single in the Hot 100′s 55-year history. Forget #newrules. It’s all about #newceilings with these guys.
If you’re trying to hit the ground running for a St. Patrick’s Day happy hour this evening, VH1′s already got your ultimate power hour playlist locked and loaded. They may not be Irish, but A Great Big World crammed their tune “Rockstar” into a minute-long soundbite for VH1′s Stop/Watch. Add the jam to our playlist of many more clock-racing mini performances from the archive like The Fray‘s truncated “Love Don’t Die” or Fall Out Boy‘s abbreviated “Young Volcanoes,” and you’ve got yourself an instant soundtrack fit to put back a St. Paddy’s Day pint (or three) to, one minute at a time.
Palladia is airing The Fray‘s full Live From The Artists Den concert Wednesday, March 12 at 9/8C. We’ve got a sneak of the VH1 favorites rocking their double-platinum hit “You Found Me” for the packed audience at Angel Orensanz Center in New York City’s Lower East Side. As usual, the foursome brought enough drama and emotion to the mid-tempo ballad to make a G nearly cry real tears (don’t act like you don’t still picture Izzie Stevens in crumpled heap of prom dress and sads whenever you hear “How To Save A Life” – damnit, Shonda Rhimes!). But we also couldn’t help noticing how intense their faces were as Isaac, Joe, Dave and Ben left their hearts on the stage, and that made us smile. So, before checking out the preview above, which is bound to give you the feels, peep these gifs of the guys going H.A.M. and vote for who had the fiercest singing face during the performance.
A Great Big World‘s “Say Something” has been on everybody’s tongue since its release last fall — a song so heart-wrenchingly honest (a la Adele’s “Someone Like You”) that pop diva Christina Aguilera asked to feature on its re-release. It raced to #4 on the Billboard Hot 100, because, duh. But if you thought the ballad was touching with full orchestral arrangement clocking in at 3 minutes 49 seconds, you’re wrong. Prepare to run through a box of tissues in one minute while watching Ian Axel’s solo on a keyboard truncate the track for VH1′s Stop/Watch (reducing us to tears in the process).
We fell for Mumford & Sons back in 2010 when they were West London folk scene-ers making a play for the U.S. we thought You Oughta Know. Sophomore LP Babel soon followed, giving them Grammy wins. So we flipped out when after three years of avid fandemonium, health scares and brilliant Unplugged performances, Mumford announced their “indefinite” hiatus.
But we have the cure for your sads that Mumford won’t appear on this years festival lineups. Palladia is airing their full Live From The Artists Den concert tonight at 9/8C. We’ve got a sneak of the washboard playing quartet rocking their hit “I Will Wait” to the Belasco Theater crowd in downtown Los Angeles. But before you press play, here are five things to watch for in the clip that will either make you an instant fan or further your obsession before the full show airs.
First they did it with a dog, then with a near R-rated Where The Wild Things Are themed video around New York City, and now American Authors are performing a compact version of their Billboard Hot 100 hit “Best Day Of My Life” for VH1′s Stop/Watch. Is watching the boys shrink down the catchy tune to under a minute as adorable as watching a bulldog rock sunglasses and eat a cupcake? It’s damn near close!
