[Watch] All 2015 Brit Award Performances



Rather than review (and watch) each 2015 Brit Award performance, I'm going to post them all here for your immediate consumption. I did consider waiting till I had the time to watch them, but I think by the time I do that, the effort wouldn't have been worth the delay!

And since the organisers have done the greatest thing ever by uploading each performance to their YouTube page, I'm embedding ALL of them- not just those by our Divas. Seriously, you don't understand how much easier it makes a blogger's life when you don't have to search for bootleg uploads to embed.

[Watch] Madonna Takes A Tumble @ 2015 Brit Awards!!!


I feel strangely guilty. The moment I turn on the 2015 Brit Awards, Madonna takes a tumble down a flight of stairs!

Despite looking in pain, that wasn't going to stop our tough as nails Diva from closing the show! Nope, the lady got back up and carried on as if nothing had happened. That is real professionalism in action.

Rihanna Demos Continued Vocal growth on "Towards The Sun"



On hearing the head-tones in the opening of Towards The Sun, I was convinced that this song, taken from the soundtrack of Home, must have been from some other Diva also going by the name "Rihanna". After all, when had we ever heard "our" Rih sounding like this in her decade-long career.

[Watch] Christina Aguilera Imitates Cher, Britney And Shakara on The Tonight Show




Christina Aguilera joined Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon for a chinwag yesterday.

It was during this sit-down that an invitation to partake in a reoccurring segment, the Wheel of Musical Impressions, was extended to the Diva. And being the shady Queen good sport that she is, Christina delved headfirst into the game, delivering vocal imitations of Cher, Britney Spears and Shakira.

[Oscars] Lady Gaga Dazzles With "Sound Of Music" Tribute


Lady Gaga is not just a chameleon when it comes to the way she dresses. No, siree. This Diva is also chameleon when it comes to her vocal prowess. Just in the space of a few weeks she has tackled jazz at the Grammys, funk during a Stevie Wonder tribute, and just yesterday, at this year's Oscars, she gave a theatrical delivery with a tribute to the The Sound Of Music. Busy lady!

Favorite "Empowering" Anthems



Ok, this is a song many will feel is quite literally trash on their first (and most likely only) listen. Still, that hasn't stopped it becoming my current go-to when I need a good kick up the ol' caboose.

[Bad Times] Nobody Wants to Work With Kelly Clarkson!!!


I would have thought anyone and everyone would jump at the opportunity to collaborate with the glorious Kelly Clarkson. Well, I'm clearly some sort of fool as the Diva has revealed- in an interview with BBC Radio 1- that she's being shut down by potential collaborators when she approaches them. Say What!?

Gaga Gets Funky For Stevie Wonder Tribute


Gaga got no love from me for her 2015 Grammy performance. (Translations: I didn't post or comment on her duet with Tony Bennett.) To make amends, I present to you her contribution to the Stevie Wonder tribute concert, where Gagz performed I Wish.

Did she fly or flop with her rendition? Watch and find out!

[Watch] Beyonce and Ed Sheeran Tribue Stevie Wonder

Ed Sheeran beyonce


There was some kinda tribute/lovefest held in honor of the musical icon that is Stevie Wonder which happened over in the States this week. Performances came from a variety of Divas, but it was of course Beyonce who stole the limelight with her take on a collection Stevie classics.

After reading the hyped up reaction to Bey's set, I was ready to feel some kind of way about it. Unfortunately, the reality was, I wasn't blown away. It had the voice, the moves and the A-game that only Bey can bring, but it just didn't pop for me in the way I thought it would. Is my soul dead?
