Ariana Grande Performs The National Anthem At NFL Kickoff 2014: Watch

7c72523d44568c83fbed85daf324c34a Ariana Grande Performs The National Anthem At NFL Kickoff 2014: Watch

Football season has begun! And you know what that means — pop diva performances, of course! (What? Did you think we actually cared about the actual sport?)

Yesterday was the official kick-off of the season in Seattle, Washington, at the CenturyLink Stadium between the Seattle Seahawks and the Green Bay Packers. And who better to start off the season off with a bang (bang) than a powerful rendition of the national anthem from My Everything pop darling, Ariana Grande?

The “Break Free” pop princess ditched her usual garb — thigh-high leather boots and cute kitten ears — for a more casual football jersey and jeans look to belt out the national tune yesterday. And, as per usual, she sounded pretty flawless, as her powerful pipes echoed throughout the stadium. As for nailing those big notes at the end? Not a problem at all for Ari.

Watch Ariana nail her performance of “The Star-Spangled Banner” up top, and let us know what you think in the comments below.

Betty Who Releases Colorful New Video For “Somebody Loves You”: Watch

f915d8872ddefe3d6966671763d6179f Betty Who Releases Colorful New Video For “Somebody Loves You”: Watch

You know it. You love it. And now, it’s gotten a majorly glam makeover.

Ahead of the release of her forthcoming debut LP Take Me When You Go in October, pop darling Betty Who has just released a brand spankin’ new video for her sparkling debut single, “Somebody Loves You.” But why, you ask?

“’Somebody Loves You’ has been in my life for so long that I wanted to start fresh in some way and make it new and exciting for myself and everyone who’s been a fan of the song since it came out,” she explained to Buzzfeed. Well, there’s your answer right there!

The newly unveiled take is an even brighter, bolder and bubblier journey, as Miss Who and her faithful Who Crew sport a bunch of fierce lewks and bounce along to the sound of her euphoric jam on the sidewalk. Like her upcoming tour BFF Katy Perry‘s “This Is How We Do,” it’s an über-colorful, purely joyous trip.

What do you think about the new “Somebody Loves You” video? Let us know in the comments below.

LIGHTS’ “Up We Go” Video: Watch The Charming Elevator-Set Romp

c6c9c7b24f76ba7a26756584c2e07b1c LIGHTS’ “Up We Go” Video: Watch The Charming Elevator Set Romp

It’s been three years since the release of LIGHTS‘ sophomore LP Siberia, but the synth-leaning Canadian songbird is back with new single “Up We Go” and an album, Little Machines, which will follow on September 23. Grammy nominated songwriter Drew Pearson (Phillip Phillips’ “Home”) produced LIGHTS’ upcoming LP, and the lead single finds her moving into slightly more commercial pop territory than she’d perhaps explored before.

In the cute video for “Up We Go,” we see the singer within the confines of an elevator. Various other folks get on board, including a pair of sparring lucha libre wrestlers, a couple deep into a make-out session and LIGHTS’ own band. None of them, however, deter her from belting out her brand new song. Good ol’ LIGHTS — she’s such a trooper.

Watch her video for “Up We Go” above, then let us know your thoughts on it below.

Watch Priory’s “Weekend” Video, Featuring Bailey Noble & Nick Krause: Idolator Premiere

ef28594ae87e2544caf9b47b0bf11fc8 Watch Priory’s “Weekend” Video, Featuring Bailey Noble & Nick Krause: Idolator Premiere

Portland electro-pop duo Priory will release their major label debut LP this November (on Warner Bros.), and one particular highlight is the irresistible track “Weekend.” To bolster the song’s appeal even further, the pair turned to their friend, director David Vincent Wolf, for a video that adds a whole new dimension of charm (and, yes, even a bit of nostalgia) to the mix.

In the clip, actors Nick Krause (The Descendants, Boyhood) and Bailey Noble (True Blood) are teenagers who spend their mundane days toiling away at a roller rink. Nick daydreams of winning Bailey’s affection by pulling some pretty slick skate moves on the floor, but reality, as always, doesn’t quite measure up.

Regarding their “Weekend” video, Priory’s Brandon Rush and Kyle Sears jointly told Idolator the following:

“We wrote and recorded the song ‘Weekend’ at our homebase, Loudwar studios in Portland, Oregon. The song idea came from the notion that everyone feels oppressed by an authority figure at some point in life. It could be a controlling parental figure, a boss at work or the unrealistic standard forced upon us by western culture. We use escapism to feel empowered (for better or worse), and it’s always been a part of our life. The video for ‘Weekend’ was directed by our friend, David Vincent Wolf AKA White Ghandi, and is about a kid’s over the top daydream. We had a great time hanging with Nick Krause and Bailey Noble. There was definitely some chemistry on set, just saying.”

Pentatonix Mash Up Sam Smith’s “Latch” and “La La La”: Watch Their “La La Latch” Video

370cb1613845a44601e1cd1956199e59 Pentatonix Mash Up Sam Smith’s “Latch” and “La La La”: Watch Their “La La Latch” Video

Since finding fame on NBC’s The Sing-Off back in 2011, the guys and gal of Pentatonix have well and truly found their niche with razor-sharp a cappella-pop covers and mash-ups. Expect their fan base to widen considerably when the vocal group’s next EP PTX Vol. 3 drops of September 23. (They also have a second holiday record coming on October 10).

The first taste of Pentatonix’s new EP was a relentlessly cheerful cover of Ariana Grande and Iggy Azalea‘s “Problem” but they surpass that feel-good fest with a winning mash-up of Sam Smith features. The group effortlessly combines Disclosure‘s “Latch” with Naughty Boy‘s “La La La” — creating something entirely new. Watch the simple but effective video up top.

Jhene Aiko Gets (A Little) Psychedelic In Her Stylish “The Pressure” Video: Watch

9a9378e06990ea636f476361b17824f5 Jhene Aiko Gets (A Little) Psychedelic In Her Stylish “The Pressure” Video: Watch

The (increasingly long) wait for Jhene Aiko‘s debut LP Souled Out gets a little more unbearable with each new song and video. Today (September 2), the Def Jam diva unleashed her visual for “The Pressure” and it successfully capture’s the track’s languid, confessional vibe. There’s even a slight psychedelic twist to keep things interesting.

Oh, and then there’s Jhene’s amazing blond braids. She rocks the striking new style with ease, casually singing her cutting lyrics (“you are such a liar/I never denied you, I was for sure”) against a black screen. The 26-yeah-old also chills on the couch with her man and friends at various points before getting a little spacey in front of a screen full of moons. It’s cool. Watch up top.

This morning, The Today Show was in full-on Arianator mode.

My Everything pop darling Ariana Grande took over the stage this AM in a cute metallic skirt and top and matching stilettos (and that ponytail, of course!) to perform a whole bunch of tracks from her brand new LP.

The set included summer smash “Problem (feat. Iggy Azalea),” “Break Free (feat. Zedd),” a bit of “Bang Bang (feat. Jessie J and Nicki Minaj)” and the Diana Ross-sampling “Break Your Heart Right Back (feat. Childish Gambino).”

She also sat down with Matt Lauer to discuss her career, both as a pop star and Cat Valentine on Nickelodeon, staying close to her friends and family and whether or not she’s got a boyfriend (“I’m happy!” she quickly deflected). Check out all the performances, as well as the interview, after the jump.

Iggy Azalea Turned Down The Chance To Work On Ariana Grande’s Debut LP ‘Yours Truly’

5ef0a817e550813533293c2dfebf25fe Iggy Azalea Turned Down The Chance To Work On Ariana Grande’s Debut LP ‘Yours Truly’

Iggy Azalea turned down the chance to work on Ariana Grande‘s debut LP Yours Truly because she mistook the pint-sized diva for a child. “She reached out to me for her first album,” the “Fancy” hitmaker revealed in an interview with Grammy.com. “And I didn’t do it even though I thought she was amazing because I thought she was much younger than what she is.”

“When I realized she was so close to my age, I was like — wait you’re an adult!” the Australian rap queen continues. “I felt that my music was kind of so risque and I knew she had a Disney show… I didn’t feel it was appropriate but then I actually met her and I found out that she’s a grown-up and I was like ‘oh ok!’” The duo subsequently worked together on summer smash “Problem”, so all’s well that end’s well. Watch the amusing interview up top.

Are you happy Iggy waited a year before working with Ari? Let us know in the comments below.

Redfoo Returns With “New Thang”: Watch The Sexy Sax Man-Featuring Video

e93f073f06bd21ef51ab607969d20d39 Redfoo Returns With “New Thang”: Watch The Sexy Sax Man Featuring Video

If you’re still mourning the loss of dance legends LMFAO (and, let’s face it, who isn’t?), new music from afro-toting frontman Redfoo is balm for the soul. “New Thang” is being promoted as the lead single from the 38-year-old’s debut LP — what does that make Australian chart-topper “Let’s Get Ridiculous”? — and features the talents of Sexy Sax Man.

Despite being the latest in an increasingly long line of “Talk Dirty”-inspired sax-heavy club anthems, Redfoo’s party jam is impossible to hate. (Feel free to try, though). The cheesy/amusing lyrics that made LMFAO’s music so much fun are present and the colorful video, which finds our hero putting moves on the ladies, is suitably irreverent. Watch up top.
