Do you wish someone would press “stop” on “We Can’t Stop”? You’re not alone. The lead single off of Miley Cyrus‘ brand new Bangerz LP is undeniably one of the catchiest pop songs of the year, but after hearing it in constant, heavy rotation for the better part of the last four months, our ears have begun feeling like they need a temporary break from this earworm. Enter Jimmy Fallon and The Roots, who teamed up with Miley for an incredible a cappella version of “We Can’t Stop” on last night’s Late Night With Jimmy Fallon that breathes brand new life into the track.
Did you miss Philly 4th of July Jam? No worries, VH1 has got you covered with the full concert! That’s right, you can jam out to 3 hours of great music by The Roots, Jill Scott, Grace Potter, DJ Jazzy Jeff, J. Cole, John Mayer and Ne-Yo. You may be wondering where Demi Lovato is in the line-up. The singer pulled out last minute but Hunter Hayes stepped in to deliver a killer performance. What a trooper!

It’s not too late to fall into love with Jessie Ware if you’re late to the ‘this-chick-is-dope’ party. The British soul singer left her heart on the Late Night With Jimmy Fallon stage as she performed her single “Wildest Moments.” Backed by The Roots she seriously belts out the perfect pitch for each note. The melodies dances off her tongue divinely. Read more…
It’s a good year when a video of the leader of the free world singing Al Green‘s “Let’s Stay Together” is uploaded to YouTube. President Obama’s very good Al Green attempt wasn’t the only video that had us clicking. Strange things happen when cell phones with video recorders meet the Internet. And this is why we’re most thankful to the almighty YouTube gods.
It’s been one hell of a year for online sensations. Going viral isn’t a prerequisite to making our list of the year’s best online videos. It’s not about the number of Internet scavengers who viewed a whacky video (although it’s a pretty good indicator of how great a phenomena it is). Whatever made us laugh until our bellies ached, smile so hard while thinking, ‘How cuuuute!’ or made us hit the replay button more than once, it made the list. From Jay-Z explaining who he was to an elderly woman on the subway to a grandma dancing to Tyga‘s “Rack City,” we loved it all.
