When we all fall asleep, where do we go? If you’re Billie Eilish, laughing all the way home with six new shiny Grammys.
On Sunday (Jan. 26), the 62nd annual Grammy Awards took over the Staples Center in Los Angeles to celebrate some of music’s biggest names. Taking place mere hours after Kobe Bryant, his daughter, and others were killed in a helicopter crash, the annual awards show celebrated the NBA legend “in the house he helped build” as well as those top entertainers of 2019.
Eilish, who had a spectacular 2019 and 2020 is looking no different, went home with a total of six awards. The “Bad Guy” singer won all four major categories (Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best New Artist) as well as Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Engineered Album.
Eilish is not only the first female to make a clean sweep of the major categories, but also the youngest to win Album of the Year. The honor was previously held by Taylor Swift, who was 20 years old when she won for Fearless.
Now, can we please break the “Big Four” curse for her sake?
The singer also took over the stage to showcase her vocals by performing her non-album track “when the party’s over.”
Keeping it in the family, Eilish’s brother and collaborator Finneas went home with the award for Producer of the Year.
Lizzo is “100% that bitch” coming in with a total of three awards, including Best Solo Pop Performance, Best Traditional R&B Performance, and Best Urban Contemporary Album. Like Eilish, she also took the stage to perform versions of “Cuz I Love You” and “Truth Hurts.”
Because giving awards is only a part of the annual event, the Grammys also gave us a slew of performances to get us through the three-hour show.
Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton showcased their love with “Nobody But You,” the Jonas Brothers ripped through their new single “What a Man Gotta Do” and “Only Human,” Usher paid tribute to the late and great Prince, Tyler, the Creator joined forces with Boyz II Men and Charlie Wilson for “Earfquake,” and Demi Lovato returned to the stage after her 2018 overdose with her new ballad “Anyone.”
All in all, not a completely horrible way to spend your Sunday night.

With just a few weeks lefts before the 62nd annual Grammy Awards invades Los Angeles, the first round of performers has been announced.
On Wednesday (Jan. 8), the Recording Academy revealed that Lizzo, Billie Eilish, Gwen Stefani, Blake Shelton, and Aerosmith will take the stage during this year’s event set to take place at the end of January.
Lizzo and Eilish will not only make their performance debut during the live telecast but are also nominated for a slew of awards.
The “Truth Hurts” crooner is nominated for a total of eight awards, including Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Pop Solo Performance. Not too far behind is Eilish, who received a total of six nominations, including Best New Artist, Album of the Year, and Best Pop Vocal Album.
While Stefani and Shelton have been to the Grammys (and won some) on their own, the duo will reportedly make their debut as a couple on stage with a duet. We’re going to assume they’re going to perform their collaborative track, “Nobody But You.”
Because it wouldn’t be an award show without bringing in some
gratuitous iconic musicians, the Recording Academy announced that Aerosmith will take the stage to perform a medley of their hits. This gig marks the group’s return to the Grammys stage, 29 years after their debut at the 33rd Grammy Awards in 1991.
In addition to the performance, the four-time Grammy winners will be honored as the 2020 MusiCares Person (shouldn’t it be persons?) of the Year.
The MusiCares Person of the Year honor recognizes the group for their philanthropic efforts over the past five decades as well as their influence in the music world.
The 2020 Grammy Awards will broadcast live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, Jan. 26. The show begins at 8 p.m.ET/ 5 p.m. PT and airs on CBS.
Alicia Keys will once again take over hosting duties during this year’s event.
You asked for an eclectic lineup, and Bonnaroo listened!
On Tuesday (Jan. 7), the masterminds behind one of the biggest music festivals in the United States announced the complete lineup for the 2020 incarnation of the weekend-long event.
Lizzo, Tool, and Tame Impala are just some of the acts that will take over Bonnaroo 2020 during the second weekend of June.
Fresh off a momentous 2019, Lizzo will be the first-ever female artist to top the bill at Bonnaroo. Not too shabby for the “Truth Hurts” crooner.
Unlike Lizzo, Tool’s appearance at Bonnaroo later this year will mark their return after a 13-year break. The iconic band, who released their long-awaited fifth studio album Fear Inoculum last August, last performed at Bonnaroo in 2007.
As for Tame Impala, the group has been steadily working their way up the echelon of Bonnaroo, starting at the secondary stage in 2016 and now set to perform on the main stage. How about that for a Cinderella story?
But, it’s not all about Lizzo, Tool, and Tame Impala. This year’s lineup includes Miley Cyrus, Lana Del Rey, The 1975, the Struts, Dashboard Confessional, The Band Camino, Vampire Weekend, Bassnectar, Flume, Run The Jewels, Megan Thee Stallion, DaBaby, Tenacious D, King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard, Leon Bridges, Young Thug, Grace Potter, and more.
We did tell you the genres were all over the place.
Bonnaroo 2020 returns to its home of Great Stage Park in Manchester, Tennessee, during the weekend of June 11-14.
Tickets go on sale this Thursday, Jan. 9, at noon EST on the festival’s official website.
The full lineup for Bonnaroo 2020 can be seen below.
Lizzo + Ariana Grande = “Good As Hell (Remix)”
Happy Friday, guys!
There’s no stopping Lizzo and we’re more than elated about that.
On Friday (July 26), the musician unleashed the music video for her latest single, and boppy as hell track, “Tempo.” The barely-three-minute clip features the singer and a slew of people hanging out in the parking lot of a diner named Lizzo’s Diner (because why the heck not).
Decked out in a blue sequins bikini, blue fur cape, bright red cowboy hat, and white boots, Lizzo gets down with the dancers surrounding her as they twerk and float their way through the clip.
Halfway through the song, Missy Elliot somehow emerges from under the hood of one of the cars stationed in the lot. As always, Missy is decked out in her iconic athletic wear jumpsuit with the world TEMPO scrawled across the jacket in red sequins.
All in all, the music video looks like the type of block party we want to attend. Check out the Andy Hines-directed clip above.
“Tempo” is featured on Lizzo’s massively successful Nice Life and Atlantic Records debut album, CUZ I LOVE YOU. While this album is her mainstream breakthrough, it’s actually the singer’s overall third studio effort.
“Tempo” joins hit songs “Juice,” “Like a Girl,” “Jerome,” and “Truth Hurts” on CUZ I LOVE YOU. The full-length was released in mid-April and peaked at the number six spot on the Billboard 200 charts and the top spot on the newly-launched Rolling Stone 200 chart.
This fall, Lizzo will hit the North American touring circuit once more for her CUZ I LOVE YOU TOO tour.
All tour dates have been classified as sold out resulting in two venues changes (Sept. 10 in Tampa and Sept. 19 in Toronto) and the addition of a second show at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco.
The new set of shows begin with a two-night engagement at the Fillmore in New Orleans (Sept. 7 and 8) and conclude with her newly added two-night stop at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco (Oct. 27 and 28). The full tour itinerary can be found here.
Lizzo’s already busy schedule keeps on getting busier. Earlier this month, she joined forces with Charli XCX for the latter’s new banger “Blame It on Your Love.” The song will appear on Charl XCX’s upcoming new album, Charli.
Because taking over the music world isn’t enough for a BAMF like Lizzo, she will make her acting debut in Jennifer Lopez’s upcoming film “Hustlers.” “Hustlers” hits theaters in September.
Charli XCX is by far one of the most hardworking people in pop music, and it looks like she’s about to keep that title with her slew of good news. On Friday (June 14), the musician announced the upcoming release of her third studio album. Titled Charli, the record will feature guest appearances by Lizzo, Christine and the Queens, HAIM, Troye Sivan, Sky Ferreira, Kim Petras, and many more.
Previously released tracks “1999” featuring Troye Sivan and “Blame it on Your Love” featuring Lizzo will be included on the 15-track record. Charli is due out Sept. 13 through Atlantic Records. Pre-orders for the album are available here.
Charli is the follow-up to 2014’s Sucker.
To celebrate the new announcement, Charli has released the official music video for one of the album’s collaborations, “Blame it on Your Love” with Lizzo. Watch the three-and-a-half-minute music video for the summer jam above.
As if the new album announcement and music video weren’t enough, the pop star has unveiled plans to embark on a fall time outing later this year to coincide with her album’s release.
The North American leg of the Charli LIVE World Tour will find the singer performing at venues across the continent throughout September and October. The 21-stop tour includes shows in Nashville, Houston, San Diego, Los Angeles, Seattle, Vancouver, Toronto, Denver, Boston, and more.
The forthcoming excursion begins on Sept. 20 at the Buckhead Theatre in Atlanta and concludes a month later on Oct. 22 at Terminal 5 in New York. Tickets go on sale next Friday, June 21, at 10 a.m. local time.
Tommy Genesis, Brooke Candy, Dorian Electra & Allie X will support Charli on select dates.

What happens when two of pop’s biggest stars get together for a collaboration? You get a tune that you will definitely be blasting from your car’s stereo all summer long.
On Wednesday (May 15), Charli XCX and Lizzo finally unleashed their much-publicized joint track. Titled “Blame it on Your Love,” the new record finds Charli XCX proving that she’s one of pop music’s biggest powerhouses while Lizzo kills it with her rapping during the last minute of the tune.
“I hope this becomes your new party anthem,” Charli XCX writes about the new jam.
“This song has been in my life for around three years now, and I’m so happy to be releasing it. I love you all. Let the new era begin.”
The song was written in Los Angeles and produced by Stargate, with additional production by A. G. Cook and Finn Keane.
For those keeping a close ear to the song, they may notice a little Easter egg courtesy of Charli XCX. The main song sampled on the new track is from “Track 10” off the musician’s album Pop 2.
Listen to “Blame it on Your Love” above. The track is available for purchase here.
The joint song is just the beginning for the two artists.
Charli XCX is going to have a busy summer this year with a slew of performances already scheduled. The musician will perform at New York’s Governors Ball Music Festival (June 2), co-headline Los Angeles’ Go West Fest with Troye Sivan (June 6), and hit the stage at the Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago (July 21). After that, she’ll head across the pond for Radio 1 Big Weekend in Newcastle and Primavera Sound in Barcelona.
As for Lizzo, the singer is showing no signs of stopping. The singer’s recently announced North American “Cuz I Love You” tour is completely sold out. Due to the high demand, additional dates have been added including a second night at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall, a third night at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Palladium, and an additional night at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco.
Lizzo’s debut album Cuz I Love You debuted at the number six spot on the Billboard 200 chart. The album also earned the number one spot on the Pop Album, Digital Album, and New Release Debut Album charts while also earning the number two spot on the Billboard Top Albums chart.
