Ed Sheeran is one of the featured acts that will be performing live at the first ever You Oughta Know In Concert, which will be livestreaming exclusively on VH1.com on Monday, November 11, and then airing again in glorious HD on VH1 on Thursday, November 21. The 22-year-old British troubadour became a member of the You Oughta Know family back in May of 2012, shortly before his debut album + was released here in the United States. Since that time, though, Sheeran has become a massive international star, penning tunes for the likes of One Direction, touring with Taylor Swift, and even recording the theme song for the next installment of The Hobbit.
You Oughta Know
JOHNNYSWIM is one of the featured acts that will be performing live at the first ever You Oughta Know In Concert, which will be livestreaming exclusively on VH1.com on Monday, November 11, and then airing again in glorious HD on VH1 on Thursday, November 21. JOHNNYSWIM, a duo made up of the married couple Abner Ramirez and Amanda Sudano-Ramirez, joined our You Oughta Know family in July of this year thanks in large part to the arresting nature of their debut single, “Heart Beats” (which you can catch an abbreviated version of above).
Lorde will be one of the featured acts who will be performing live at the first ever You Oughta Know In Concert, which will be livestreaming exclusively on VH1.com on Monday, November 11, and then airing again in glorious HD on VH1 on Thursday, November 21. Lorde joined our You Oughta Know family in September of this year, and promptly went on to hit #1 on the pop charts all over the world with her massive smash, “Royals,” trumping establishment pop stars like Katy Perry and Lady Gaga along the way.
VH1′s inaugural You Oughta Know In Concert special will be taping next Monday, November 11th, and will feature performances by the likes of Lorde, Ed Sheeran, The Lumineers, HAIM and more. The event will be livestreamed on VH1.com on 11/11, and will make its broadcast premiere on Thursday, November 21. That said, we will be giving away some tickets to attend the show in person to our @VH1 Instragram followers! Read along for directions.
Halloween fell on a weekend Halloween fell on a Thursday, which means that our famous friends have been sporting costumes for nearly a week now. During that time, we here at VH1 Music have been keeping our eyes on what our favorite musicians—names like Beyoncé, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Adam Lambert, Demi Lovato & more—were dressing up as. We’ve collected some of the most memorable looks—be they spooky, sexy, or straight up scary!—in the gallery above and now we’re turning it over to you, the fans. Which musician WON Halloween 2013? Vote in our poll below!
Katy Perry has the biggest album in all the land, but how did her sales rank against her past chart performances? #SoundScanner has the answer to that and a look at the rest of this week’s chart happenings. Tricks, treats – we’ve got both. Let’s go!
One of the most dynamic new rock bands on the face of the Earth is HAIM, who just so happens to also be VH1′s current You Oughta Know artist. The band is made up of three sisters—Alana (bass + vox), Danielle (lead vox + guitar), and Este (keys + guitar + vox)—who have been making music together over their entire lives. Being sisters and bandmates means that the three members of HAIM spend a ton of time together, which is why we decided to play a round of Sibling Superlatives with them when they popped by VH1 headquarters recently. In this installment, we’ll find out which member of HAIM is the biggest flirt, who’s the most athletic, and which one has the most talent. Enjoy!
HAIM is VH1′s You Oughta Know artist for the month of October, and the trio of Californian sisters will also be part of the lineup of the first ever You Oughta Know In Concert special that airs on VH1 next month. We got to spend some QT with Este, Danielle and Alana last month when they dropped by VH1 headquarters for a round of Sibling Superlatives, in which we learned which which of the Haim sisters is least likely to put up with bullsh*t, who’s the most likely to be up until 4am, and who is the most competitive of the bunch. (Hint: One of them “left their soul on that soccer field” … but WHO?!?)
After all that twerking, sledgehammer licking and naked wrecking ball riding, Miley Cyrus‘ Bangerz finally arrived in stores and made its presence felt. But could it touch Cyrus’ previous efforts? We’re looking at that and plenty of other new debuts in this week’s #SoundScanner.
Earlier this week, we got to know the three sisters that make up HAIM—Este, Alana, and Danielle—during the latest installment of Sibling Superlatives. The band is VH1′s latest You Oughta Know artist, and is scheduled to play the inaugural You Oughta Know In Concert special that will air on VH1 on November 21 at 10PM/9C. Before that, though, let’s get to know these ladies a little bit better, shall we?
