Without a doubt, Tegan & Sara‘s “Closer” is, in addition to being the theme song of VH1’s latest brand campaign, one of the most anthemic songs of the new year. The identical twin sisters have been icons of the LGBT community since the outset of their career, which is one of the many reasons why we were so excited about them being booked as a musical act on last night’s NewNowNext Awards.
Do the ladies of Destiny’s Child still hang out in real life? Where can you see Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Selena Gomez perform if you missed last night’s MTV Movie Awards? And what exactly IS Kylie Minogue doing at LOGO’s NewNowNext Awards tonight at 10/9 Central?
The NewNowNext Awards air tonight on Logo but before the melee ensues at 10pm CT, we have a gift to share from the channel’s new site, TheBacklot.com. Teasing some info on her “Body Party” video, Ciara chatted it up on the show’s red carpet. Read more…
Ever since Australian pop diva Kylie Minogue hit the scene with her 80s pop cover of “The Locomotion”, we’ve been in love with her pep, her beauty, her voice and her butt. Kylie has one of the most delicious derrieres in the world and tonight she’s showing off that tremendous tush at LOGO’s NewNowNext Awards airing at 10/9 Central (and streaming GLOBALLY.)
Adam Lambert fans, at the ready, on your marks, get set — jump up and down filled with glee! The NewNowNext Awards have announced that Lambert will be performing live at their next ceremony on April 5th, and we’ve got our little hearts set on hearing some tracks from his forthcoming album, Trespassing. Joining Adam on stage will be the inimitable Neon Hitch, whose star is quickly rising following her collaboration with Gym Class Heroes on “Ass Back Home”, and who is nominated for a Brink-of-Fame: Music Artist Award. The whole affair will be hosted by the progeny of rock royalty, Kelly Osbourne, so there’s more than enough to get excited about.
The NewNowNext Awards is essentially a showcase of pop culture, and it’s up to YOU to decide who will be deemed a winner for 2012. At NewNowNext’s website, you can vote for nominees in categories as diverse and crazy as “Cause You’re Hot” and “Beyond Style” or “TV You Betta Watch,” or if you’re as Twitter-head you can simply Tweet your vote and include the #NNNAwards hashtag — does it get any more interactive than that? More performers will be announced over the coming weeks, so keep your ear to the ground. This is the award show that hosted Lady Gaga‘s first televised performance, so you never know — you may get to witness the birth of the next big thing at the NewNowNext Awards!
The NewNowNext Awards Premiers on Monday, April 9th at 10/9C on Logo. Visit NewNowNext.com for more information or to vote for the winners!
