IT'S BEEN A WHIRLWIND YEAR FOR JOSH GROBAN


Josh Groban "you Raise Me Up"




(Los Angeles, CA) - After a whirlwind year and a half following the release of his 2015 album Stages, multi-platinum recording artist, songwriter, and actor Josh Groban closes out 2016 with a lot to celebrate, including a No. 1 single on the Adult Contemporary radio chart with "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas." He also scored a 2017 Grammy Award for "Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album" for his album Josh Groban: Stages Live and earned rave reviews for his Broadway debut in the hit show Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812.


Groban ends 2016 having scored his sixth No. 1 single on Billboard's Adult Contemporary radio airplay chart with his new version of "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas." In 2007, he topped the same chart for three weeks with his rendition of "I'll Be Home For Christmas." Groban is also starring in the hit Broadway musical, Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812 - his Broadway debut, which has earned him glowing notices. The New York Times raved that "Josh Groban is absolutely wonderful...he invests his singing with the pain and frustration that define Pierre. And his acting is superb, as he all but trembles with the existential despair that courses through Pierre's veins." Time Out NY said: "Josh Groban plays the melancholy Pierre with intensity and a simply ravishing voice."


In April 2015, Groban released his seventh studio album Stages - a collection of some of the greatest musical theater songs of all time. It was certified gold and earned Groban his second Grammy Award nomination for "Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album." (His first was for 2007's best-selling Christmas album Noel - the second best-selling holiday album of the Nielsen Music era.) In February 2016, Groban released the CD/DVD Stages Live, which featured his performances of the songs from Stages recorded at the Los Angeles Theater in downtown L.A. for a PBS special entitled Josh Groban: Stages Live.The album has earned Groban a 2017 Grammy nomination for "Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album."


Groban toured extensively in support of Stages and Stages Live between September 2015 and August 2016, including hitting the road for the extensive North American tour "Josh Groban: On Stage."


Grobangraced the cover of the New York Times Arts & Leisure section this past Sunday with a feature about how he underwent "boot camp" to prepare for his role as Pierre in The Great Comet. Read the story HERE.

MARIAH CAREY POINTING NEW YEARS EVE FINGERS

Mariah Carey




NY TIMES -- Mariah Carey suffered through a performance train wreck in Times Square on New Year’s Eve as malfunctions left her at a loss vocally during her hit song “Emotions,” struggling to reach notes and to sync the lyrics and music.

The trouble continued when she gave up on another of her best-known numbers, “We Belong Together,” while a recording of the song continued to play, a confirmation that she had been lip-syncing.

But on Sunday, a dispute erupted between Ms. Carey’s representatives and producers of ABC’s “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest,” on which the singer was performing.

Ms. Carey’s manager, Stella Bulochnikov, charged that the show’s producers had been aware of technical problems but did not fix them — and chose to continue showing Ms. Carey’s messy performance “to get ratings.”

How being bullied inspired Bethany Mota to start filming beauty videos when she was 13:



“It was so cool seeing girls being positive and spreading happiness. At first, I made beauty videos that were like everyone else’s – I’d try to act perfect. But then I realized it might be more fun if I was just myself. So I showed my silly side and kept in the bloopers. I liked those videos way more, and people appreciated that realness.”

Guinness World Records Community Manager, Dan Barrett, said: "Having been the "have you seen this?!" video of the last two months across the web, it's great to be able to award a record for this tremendously popular video. In years past it was unthinkable that something would be viewed a hundred million times, and now "Gangnam Style" has achieved more than twice this figure in just 3 months on YouTube. PSY - your certificate is waiting here at our office, come pick it up any time!" The new Guinness World Records 2013 book is out now.
