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.
You Oughta Know
Delta Rae is one of our favorite You Oughta Know artists to emerge over the last couple of years, which is why it was so thrilling to see them appear on-stage at the You Oughta Know In Concert special that airs tonight at 9/8C on VH1. The band’s Brittany Holljes (aka @brittanyhellyes) and Liz Hopkins (aka @batsparkles) join an all-star cast of performers during the evening’s closing number, “Ho Hey” by The Lumineers, but that’s not all that’s new with this North Carolina six-piece.
VH1′s first ever You Oughta Know In Concert special will air tomorrow night, Thursday November 21, at 9/8C. If you missed the livestream of the event last week, you’ll finally be able to watch the star-studded grand finale of “Ho Hey,” performed by The Lumineers and an all-star cast of You Oughta Know alumni. Although you won’t be able to see the final cut of that INCREDIBLE performance until tomorrow night, we were able to liberate this sneak peek for you guys while our editors weren’t looking!
Clocking in at five minutes and 26 seconds, “Give Me Love” is the longest song on Ed Sheeran‘s debut album, +. However, when he performed the song at last week’s You Oughta Know In Concert special (airing Thursday, November 21 at 9/8C), he delighted the audience by extending the song for three more glorious minutes.
The 17-year-old Lorde is, beyond a shadow of a doubt, the biggest breakout music star of the year 2013. She was named a VH1 You Oughta Know artist in September of this year, her song “Royals” has spent six weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100, and her debut album Pure Heroine will no doubt be showing up on many year-end Top 10 lists. As much vocal and lyrical promise as she has shown, though, we had NO idea that she could wail until we discovered this video of her at age 12 singing a Ronnie James Dio classic (via our friends over at Crushable)!
It’s almost here! Only five more days until the inaugural You Oughta Know In Concert special airs this Thursday, November 21 at 9/8C. It features performances from You Oughta Know alumni both new (Lorde, HAIM, JOHNNYSWIM) and, well, not so new. Take, for instance, the talented Matt Nathanson, who has been part of the YOK family since 2008.
If you missed Monday night’s VH1 You Oughta Know In Concert livestream, you’ll have a chance to catch the highlights of the program next Thursday, November 21, at 9/8C. Between now and then, we’ll be rolling out clips from this evening’s AMAZING show here on VH1 Music, including the moment that has the Internet salivating earlier this week: The moment when Lorde and HAIM teamed up to cover Sheryl Crow‘s AAA classic, “Strong Enough.”
If you missed last night’s livestream of the very first You Oughta Know In Concert, don’t fret. The show will be premiering on VH1 on Thursday, November 21 at 9/8C, and in between now and then, we’ll be releasing videos and web exclusives from the show as soon as we can. Case in point: Last night’s show closed with an AMAZING set from The Lumineers, who debuted their new track from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, “Gale Song.”
Are you getting tired of being told to throw your hands up in the air? Lorde is! (So there.) The 17-year-old New Zealander was one of the featured performers at tonight’s You Oughta Know In Concert special, which livestreamed on VH1.com earlier and will be airing on VH1 on Thursday, November 21 at 9/8C.
