Super Bowl XLVIII is rapidly approaching and VH1 is teaming up with the NFL to bring you six concerts in six nights leading up to The Big Game. VH1 is thrilled to announce that we’ve brought on the hardest working man in show biz, Nick Cannon and model and actress, Stacy Keibler to host each of the six live concert telecasts that will take place throughout New York City and New Jersey.
We’ve also teamed up with production company, 1iota who will be giving away tickets to all six shows. For more information about tickets, visit 1iota.com and read on for more info on the six night concert series.
The Big Morning Buzz Live train has been going full steam for a month now, so hopefully you’ve all settled into a rhythm and are watching (or DVRing) the show every morning at 9:30 a.m. We’ve got some great guests coming in this week, but if you’re the type of person who prefers something a little more interactive than simply watching an interview on television, we’ve got something you’ll be mighty interested in.
We have partnered with a new company called VYou to give YOU an opportunity to play interviewer to some of today’s biggest celebrities. All you have to do is to submit a question for either our lovely host Carrie Keagan or any of our upcoming guests through the widget above or by visiting our Big Morning Buzz Live page on VYou.com. Then, kick back and wait for them to respond via webcam when they stop by our offices. Technology!
This week’s confirmed VYou guests are:
June 2: Jason Derulo
June 3: Nick Cannon
Death Cab For Cutie?s VH1 Storytellers is airing at 11 p.m. tonight on VH1, and since lead singer Ben Gibbard is now married to his indie beloved Zooey Deschanel, we got to thinking about music?s most powerful couples of the moment. Because these lists are often tricky to compile and put into an order that everyone can agree on, we took to the streets and polled over 5,000 people. JK! We actually did something smarter and more efficient, combining stats from Billboard charts, YouTube clicks, and social media followings, and mixed it with our interpretation of je ne sais quoi cool-factor buzz. Confident in our rankings, we hereby give you VH1?s list of the most powerful couples in music today.

Latina is reporting that Mariah Carey‘s supposed beau Nick Cannon is not only her man for real, he’s now also her husband! Citing a source close to Nick, the site reports that Mariah and Nick wed yesterday on a small island in a “very impulsive” ceremony attended by Da Brat and some others close to the pair. Do you think maybe that this is all some big April Fool’s joke that’s arriving fashionably late?
Maybe that’s wishful thinking — as the shot to the left (from the set of Mariah’s 2005 video for “We Belong Together”) proves, Mimi is definitely the marrying type. This would be her second marriage (she divorced svengali Tommy Mottola in 1998) and Nick’s first, since he’s, like, 12. [Latina.com]
