Lorde has risen to the ranks of pop royalty in these last few months with her uber-catchy single “Royals,” and her performance at You Oughta Know In Concert proves that she’s no pretender to the throne!

Nathanson is the longest-tenured You Oughta Know artist of anyone on tonight’s bill, and he proved to be the most versatile of the bunch, too, performing 4 songs of original material, leading the way on three dynamic covers, and singing along to the all-star jam of “Ho Hey” led by The Lumineers.
Emeli Sandé got the first ever You Oughta Know In Concert special started off on an extremely energetic foot tonight, performing four songs that appear on her debut album Our Version Of Events. Two of those songs, “Next To Me” and “My Kind Of Love,” just appeared on your television screen, but those of us who were lucky enough to be in attendance when this show was recorded were treated to an especially rockin’ version of “Heaven,” which we have for you above.

Rihanna is to everything as Joey Tribiani is to grandma’s chicken salad — she somehow manages to make anything and everything sexy as hell, and her Instagram presents a treasure trove of evidence to support this thesis. From seductively draping herself over her grandfather to making sexual gestures with phallic objects at the Aquarium in Cape Town; from kissing elephant trunks in Africa and offending by being too sexy at a mosque in Abu Dhabi, Riri is the queen of excessive, untameable sexuality.
