Watch This Sneak Peek Of Behind The Music: NE-YO

This Sunday at 9/8c on VH1, Behind The Music is will put the spotlight on R&B heartthrob NE-YO. Tune-in at 9/8c to get the story behind the song he penned for Beyoncé, the time he performed with the King of Pop himself and all the rest of his thick catalog of hits. But before then, catch a sneak peek at the show’s first act above!

NE-YO is feeling lucky these days, with his fifth studio album on the way and his name already attached to some of the biggest R&B hits of recent times. He was not always the sweet crooning heartthrob he is today, and so this first segment finds the star looking back to his childhood with parents who loved music but where always fighting, and to his early days on stage — some of which were not so pretty. “Every dream I have has been realized,” he says. “How many people can say that? Not very many.”

Be sure to tune-in when Behind The Music: NE-YO premiers on Sunday, September 23 at 9/8c on VH1!

Behind The Song: Ne-Yo On Writing “Irreplaceable” For Beyonce


Are you on a mobile device? Click here to watch Behind The Song: Ne-Yo, “Irreplaceable.”

This Sunday, VH1′s Behind The Music delves into sweet crooning singer-songwriter Ne-Yo‘s story. Before we get into that, though, we’d like to set the scene by first going Behind The Song with Ne-Yo’s “Irreplaceable,” the chart-topping smash he wrote for Beyoncé.

“There’s a multitude of points throughout my career that re-inspired,” says Ne-Yo, counting as one of them “Irreplaceable,” the country-tinged hip-hop hit he penned for none-less-than Beyoncé to perform. A shining performer in his own right, the song proved Ne-Yo a talented songwriter as well, able to worm his way into the hearts and souls of others with his writing. “Everybody will start telling you that this will never work, that will never work, probably don’t want to experiment, give people what they don’t know, don’t go too far outside of the box,” he says. “We experimented with something and it worked.” And as for that killer “to the left, to the left” line? He got that from his aunt.

Be sure to tune-in when Behind The Music: Ne-Yo premieres on Sunday, September 23 at 9/8c on VH1.

Tuned In: Justin Bieber, Big Sean and Ne-Yo Show Battle Lasers On America’s Got Talent Finale

This season of America’s Got Talent went out with a great big and certainly talented bang last night, with Canadian Justin Bieber and Big Sean hitting the stage for a monstrous performance of their “As Long As You Love Me” and Ne-Yo battling lasers to show us why he should “Let Me Love You.”

Justin’s stage set looked like O-Town’s “Liquid Dreams” set (or maybe a little like a Bose iPod doc), and — lasers, an army of dancers, and metallic galore — the performance was a real event. Justin has been performing “As Long As You Love Me” since Believe‘s release back in June, and at last he seems comfortable nailing the dance moves and hitting the high notes at the same time. They also let him have a moment with one of the female dancers. #stillkidrauhl, maybe, but Kid Rauhl’s growing up. Read more…
