According to the Irish Mirror, producers on the show fear the studio is too small to accommodate such a large performance space.

Lady Gaga Brings Down the House with "Sound of Music" Tribute at the Academy Awards

If recording a Grammy-winning album of jazz duets with the legendary Tony Bennett didn't convince the world that Lady Gaga can really sing, her show-stopping performance at the Academy Awards on Sunday night certainly did.

Sam Smith Tells "Vogue": "The Danger of Giving Too Much Away Excites Me"

Don’t cry for Sam Smith. In a new interview for the March issue of Vogue, Sam explains that he draws his strength from sharing his sadness. “People think that because I’m being honest and talking about pain it’s sad, but to me it’s empowering,” the four-time Grammy winner tells the mag. “Talking about my deepest and darkest secrets to the world makes me feel better. It’s cathartic. And that’s a bit f**ked up, if I’m honest.
