First Dibs: Is Drake About To Conquer The Wide World Of Sports?

Billy Joel goes back to school, Martina McBride injects a little soul into her performance on Big Morning Buzz Live, and Las Vegas band Palaye Royale has a reason to celebrate.

  • It’s no secret that Drake is a sports fan, and it seems the sports world loves him back. The Toronto rapper has been tapped to host this year’s ESPY Awards. ESPN, the network behind the awards ceremony, announced Drizzy’s hosting duties and naturally, the rapper couldn’t be happier. [Los Angeles Times]
  • Martina McBride has had years in the music biz, and she recently switched up her style by covering a classic from The Supremes on Big Morning Buzz Live. Check out her performance of “Come See About Me.”
  • Billy Joel headed to a Long Island school yesterday, taking in a performance of students working up renditions of his music. One of the school’s teachers reached out to the Piano Man, hoping against the odds that he might attend. And needless to say, that had to be the coolest school day ever! [Huffington Post]
  • March is long gone, but it’s not too late to find out who won MTV’s Musical March Madness! Las Vegas band Palaye Royale beat out the competition, meaning we’ll probably be hearing from them for years to come. And if you’re set for MTV to bring you more big winners, remember to watch the 2014 MTV Movie Awards on Sunday at 9 p.m. ET. [MTV News]
