Drake won't be on tonight's Grammy Nominations show

Tonight’s Grammy Nominations Concert Live! will be star-studded, though one prominent musician with one of the biggest releases of the year won’t be present after all.

Citing a scheduling conflict with his nationwide Would You Like a Tour? trek, Drake pulled out of the show. That’s a strange excuse, because it looked as though his schedule was designed specifically around performing at the Nokia Theatre at L.A. Live in Los Angeles tonight—he last played a show on Wednesday night in Tacoma, WA, and is scheduled to be in Kansas City, MO, on Saturday night. He could have made that flight pretty breezily.

Then again, tour logistics being what they are, sometimes the best laid plans go awry. It’s also possible that Drake is looking for an extra night of down time between dates, which is reasonable considering the amount of energy he expends every night just giving shout-outs to people in the upper decks of sold-out arenas.

Either way, Drake will almost certainly be getting a nomination or two for Nothing Was the Same, which was released just under the Grammy calendar deadline and is one of the best-selling and best-reviewed releases of the year.

The Grammy Nominations Concert Live! airs tonight at 10 PM on CBS and will feature performances by Lorde, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, and Robin Thicke. LL Cool J will run the show, which will unveil the nominations for the 56th Annual Grammy Awards that will be given out on Sunday, January 26, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

One Direction announce North American tour and which members are still single on 'Good Morning America'- VIDEO

Hold onto your knickers and industrial sculpting paste — One Direction is coming to North America.

Well technically, they’re already here. The British boy band appeared on Good Morning America to announce their North American tour in a dusky Central Park. The air was thick with what looked to be simulated fog… or the collective vaporized breath of a thousand screaming teenage girls.

“This is how you roll,” said anchor Robin Roberts. “We usually don’t roll this early,” replied Harry Styles.

Their “special announcement” was that they’re bringing their “Where We Are” tour to North America. Tickets go on sale in December, with the first stop in Toronto on Aug. 1. Roberts also asked the question that was undoubtedly pulsating throughout the wall of girlish shrieks, “Who’s still on the market?”

Harry Styles raised his hand and that other bloke that isn’t Harry Styles (Niall Horan) did too. They also performed “Best Song Ever,” “Story of My Life,” and “What Makes You Beautiful.”

Backstreet Boys 'Show 'Em (What You're Made Of)' music video features shirtless Brian, AJ

After wrapping their North American and Japan tour, but before launching their 2014 European leg, the Backstreet Boys are taking the time to show us, quite literally, what they’re made of.

The Boys took to their Facebook page to release their latest music video for the song “Show ‘Em (What You’re Made Of) off their album, In A World Like This. The song, which was written by Kevin and AJ, is dedicated to their kids. (Other than Nick, they’re all dads now.)

“The inspiration for AJ and I writing this song was our children,” Kevin said in a release. “The innocence and wonder in their eyes is so precious. I want them to keep it forever and I want to rediscover it within myself. No limits … No fear.”

And keeping in theme with “no limits,” the video features a shirtless Brian and AJ. They will not be limited or restricted by clothing, and I for one, support their decision.

Watch the video for “Show ‘Em (What You’re Made Of)” below: READ FULL STORY

Katy Perry announces first batch of 2014 'Prismatic World Tour' dates

Katy-Perry.jpg

Clear your calendar, bust out your leopard-print boxing robe, and give Juicy J a call; Katy Perry is coming to a town near you in 2014.

Following the release of her latest album, Prism, Perry is hitting the road early next year for what she is calling the Prismatic World Tour. So far, only a handful of dates in the U.K. have been unveiled, though Perry promises this is merely the tip of the candy iceberg. “DON’T WORRY – more GLOBAL tour dates coming soon! I can’t wait to get closer to ALL of you than ever before!” she tweeted.

Icona Pop will serve as the opening act across the first 11 concerts, which means they’ll be having a busy new year –they’re also booked to open up Miley Cyrus’ Bangerz tour, which launches in February.

When EW spoke to Perry about the tour, she played it relatively close to the vest, but did hint at what fans might be in store for. “I always try to take it to the next level,” she told EW. “I think people will realize what the tour is going to be like when they listen to the music.” And like her tweet, she promised some sort of intimacy. “Let’s just say I’m going to be very close to people,” she said.

What could she mean? Will she be performing on multiple stages throughout venues, thus creating a handful of front rows? Is she going to spend the entire show hopping into 18,000 laps a night? Check out the full list of U.K. dates below: READ FULL STORY

Janelle Monae postpones tour dates for vocal rest

Fans hoping to Dance Apocalyptic with Janelle Monae in Anaheim, San Diego, and Phoenix will have to wait a little longer — Monae has postponed those three shows on her tour.

“Starting today, I am under strict doctor’s orders for mandatory vocal rest,” Monae wrote on her official website. “Not doing so could possibly result in damage to my vocal cords.”

There have been no dates rescheduled as of yet, though at the moment Monae intends on being in Dallas this Saturday for her concert at the House of Blues. She’s on her biggest headlining tour yet in support of her just-released new album The Electric Lady. And because Monae is Monae, she even stuck to her kooky script while announcing her postponements:  “But alas, apparently even the most expertly designed android breaks down sometimes and must recharge,” she wrote.

Katy Perry says her 2014 tour for 'Roar' will be 'less cartoony' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

katy-perry-video.jpg

Katy Perry’s tour for Teenage Dream was an epic escapist odyssey that turned stadiums and arenas around the globe into her own personal Candyland. When she hits the road in 2014 in support of her chart-topping latest, Roar, what will she do to keep her game elevated?

“The tour is going to be fantastic,” Perry told EW while Tim Stack followed her halfway across the Earth for the cover story in the current issue. “I always try to take it to the next level. I think people will realize what the tour is going to be like when they listen to the music.”

Perry promises that the new show will definitely incorporate material from Roar, but she’ll always make room for her catalog of older hits. “There’s nothing worse than going to a concert of an artist and not hearing your favorite songs,” she said.

As for the concept and the stage design, Perry is tight-lipped, but she does offer one intimate tease. “Let’s just say I’m going to be very close to people,” she said.

Check out the rest of Perry’s thoughts about her upcoming tour in the exclusive video below. For more on EW’s whirlwind tag-along with Katy Perry, check out the current issue.
