Bruno Mars, Justin Timberlake shine at iHeartRadio festival

There’s a reason why Bruno Mars is set to perform at the Super Bowl halftime show.

Justin Timberlake was also a fan favorite. The pop star closed the five-hour plus concert, singing hits like “Mirror” and “SexyBack.” Paul McCartney kicked off the show, playing a bunch of new songs from his upcoming album. And R&B singer Miguel and rapper Drake also earned cheers. READ FULL STORY

iHeartRadio Music Festival returning to Las Vegas again this summer

The iHeartRadio Music Festival is returning to Las Vegas in September for a third year.

Officials with Clear Channel Media and Entertainment announced Thursday that the two-day festival would be back at the MGM Grand resort on Sept. 20 and 21.

A musical lineup is expected to be announced this summer.

Last year’s event featured stars including Lil Wayne, Swedish House Mafia, Usher, Green Day, Rihanna, Enrique Iglesias, and Taylor Swift.

The 2013 event will also include the Macy’s iHeartRadio Rising Star campaign, allowing fans to vote on their favorite artist among 25 up-and-coming musicians. The winner of the contest will perform at the festival.

The festival is named after the mobile radio app that allows users to listen to Clear Channel stations or create their own custom stations. READ FULL STORY

On the scene at the iHeartRadio Music Festival, day two: Lady Gaga takes over the show

Leave it to Lady Gaga to co-opt a music festival featuring dozens of top-line pop stars and make it her own.

The Lady appeared on stage as the final performer last night at the iHeartRadio Music Festival at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and stayed on stage for well over an hour—much longer than any of the other acts. “They told me I was only allowed to play for 45 minutes,” she told the crowd. “But I think you’re all pretty drunk so you probably don’t know what time it is, do you?”

And it’s true: No one was complaining when she served up hit after hit, including “Judas,” “You and I,” “Just Dance,” and “Bad Romance,” which basically blew the roof off the arena.

On the scene at the iHeartRadio Music Festival, day one: Black Eyed Peas, Kelly Clarkson, Alicia Keys, and Jay-Z

When you think about it, there’s really only one way to kick off a pop music festival: with the gyrating, electro, pulsing sounds of the Black Eyed Peas, of course.

The foursome opened the iHeartRadio Music Festival at the MGM Grand Garden Arena last night with laser lights, a cadre of jailbird-themed backup dancers (in a word: divine), and one of their signature songs, “Boom Boom Pow.”

It’s almost needless to say, but the party-rocking vibe the show’s producers were no doubt hoping for coalesced perfectly, as the crowd spiraled into dancing through songs like “Just Can’t Get Enough,” “Don’t Stop the Party,” “The Time (Dirty Bit),” and the perfect set-ender: “I Gotta Feeling.” (Personally, I was hoping for “Shut Up,” but no one ever seems to be into that song as much as me.)

Of much interest — at least to me — was Fergie’s delightful getup, which included glittery knee-high boots and onesie, and fascinating, gold fingernail/cap things that contributed to her overall drag queen look. She was Vegas to a T! (Then again, she always kind of is.)

The tone was set from the first act: This show was definitely all about the hits, and the 12,000 fans in the audience at the MGM Grand Garden Arena seemed to get just what they wanted. From top to bottom, the show was quite the Vegas production with huge screens flanking the stage, more than one confetti blast (the first one came at the almost-still-daylight time of 8:01 p.m., no joke), and, yes, Ryan Seacrest as host.

He first appeared after the Black Eyed Peas left the stage to introduce the show: “This weekend,” he said, in a trademark way that’s both overly dramatic and overly bombastic, “all roads lead to Vegas.” Well, all roads carrying the biggest pop stars, at least. And it was during this interlude that he announced something that made the crowd go completely wild: Lady Gaga—already confirmed to be performing during the festival—would appear on Saturday night with Sting. In two words: Instant death!
