One Direction Surpasses The Beatles with Fifth Top-10 Debut on "Billboard's" Hot 100

One Direction officially has beaten a record set by another little British boy band you may have heard of: The Beatles. 1D’s new single, “Perfect,” has cracked the Billboard Hot 100 top 10, marking the band's fifth top-10 debut on the chart. That means they just surpassed The Beatles’ record for most top-10 Hot 100 debuts among groups. The Beatles had four top-10 debuts. “Perfect” joins “Drag Me Down,” “Live While We’re Young,” “Best Song Ever” and “Story of My Life,” which all premiered in the top 10.

Meghan Trainor "Teared Up" When She First Heard John Legend's Voice on Their Duet

Meghan Trainor's debut album, Title, continues to spin off hits.  The latest is "Like I'm Gonna Lose You," her duet with John Legend.  Meghan says she was so blown away by John's vocals on the track that she actually shed a tear. "I mean I wasn’t there when he recorded it but I remember getting the very rough cut of his vocals," Meghan recalls. "And they were like, 'Nothing is on here. There’s no reverb, there’s no effects, there’s no nothing.'" She adds, "I listened to it and I was like, 'It’s so good though! How -- what do you…

Andy Grammer and Nick Carter Both Stumble on Monday’s "DWTS"

Andy Grammer and Nick Carter survived week seven of ABC's Dancing with the Stars, after a Monday night installment that ended with 15-year-old social media star Hayes Grier eliminated. After notching a perfect score last week, Grammer found himself back in the middle of the pack, managing only a 26 out of 30. Carter’s performance on Monday was even more disappointing: he ended the night tied for last place with Tamar Braxton and her pro partner Val Chmerkovskiy with 24. Monday's theme was "Halloween Night." Andy and his partner Allison Holker danced a Paso Doble to Marilyn Manson’s “The Beautiful People.” Nick and his…
