Zac Efron on the set of Despierta America

Do you think he does this with Dylan O’Brien? Either way I just started sweating thinking about it.
Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) Live at the Grammy Nominations concert in 2008 | Mariah Carey
Not my favorite Mariah vocal (all live though!), but this is my fave Mariah Holiday look: 1960’s hair, earrings, dress, and white go-go boots. ♥
Lady Gaga’s inspiration for “Swine”
No wonder Miss Piggy was so bitter on the Gaga/Muppets special tonight
Released on November 14, 1995, One Sweet Day became the longest running number one single in US Billboard Hot 100 history at 16 weeks atop the chart from December 2, 1995 to March 16, 1996. One Sweet Day became Carey’s tenth chart topping single on the Billboard Hot 100 and Boyz II Men’s fourth. The song also achieved strong success around the world, topping the charts in Canada and New Zealand, and reaching the top-ten in Australia, Belgium, France, Ireland, The Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and the United Kingdom. Additionally, it was ranked first in Rolling Stone’s reader’s poll for the Best Collaboration of All Time.
Let me put it into perspective, it’s the day before St. Patrick’s day, and the number one song in the country has been the same every week since almost a month before Christmas.
"The Voice" is back. A beautiful, classic track that’s straight-forward and focuses on non auto-tuned vocals, a live string orchestra, and for most of the song just a little light rhythmic beats, courtesy of Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins. All bets are off in the last 49 seconds of the track where full live drums come in, any vocal restraint is cast aside, and Mariah’s voice soars. ★★★★½

A candid picture of Colton Haynes on the set of Arrow from August. We all wish we were his hand.
This is everything I love in a Justin Timberlake song: Urban, dark, edgy, heavy beat, scratchy effects, flawless mid-range baritone vocals, smooth layered harmonies, and 7 minutes long of so much pre-chorus, chorus, post-chorus, bridge, and breakdown that you won’t even be sure which is which. This song is just what I needed after “Suit & Tie”, “Mirrors”, and “Take Back The Night”, which while respectively great, were a little more light and airy, leaving me thirsty for some deep 808 thumping.
The song is reminiscent of “Tunnel Vision”, but more refined, with more dramatic contrast in verse/chorus structure, and more emphasis on melody - all wrapped up in a tidy little Timbaland package with a signature Justin beatbox outro that will knock you right out. ★★★★☆

What is going on here? Is this 1999 on TRL? Is this a Max Martin reject? Is this a remake of an unreleased B-Side from Backstreet Boys or Mandy Moore?
It’s right on par with Willa Ford’s “I Wanna Be Bad” and NSync’s “Bye Bye Bye” and I can’t decide if that’s why I don’t really like it or if that’s why I actually kind of like it….
