Kanye West on Beck's Grammy Win: "He Should Have Given His Award to Beyoncé"

Everyone thought Kanye West was joking Sunday night at the Grammy Awards when he went on stage after Beck won best album honors. Everyone assumed Kanye was making a humorous reference to his infamous 2009 MTV VMA performance when he stormed the stage after Beyonce lost to Taylor Swift.  Kanye didn’t say anything while on stage Sunday, leading everyone to believe it was just a joke, but he told E! Online afterward that Beck “should have given his award to Beyoncé.”Speaking about Beck’s win, Kanye told E!, "I don't know what he said, I just know is if the Grammys…

At Grammy Awards, Sam Smith Takes Four Trophies, Beck Stuns with Album of the Year Win

"I'm having a really, really good night."  That's what Sam Smith said partway through Sunday night's Grammy Awards, as he took the stage to accept his third trophy of the evening: Song of the Year, for "Stay with Me."  It wouldn't be his last trip to the podium, though; all in all, the soulful British singer took home four out of the six Grammys he'd been nominated for: Best New Artist, Record of the Year and Song of the Year for "Stay with Me," and Best Pop Vocal Album for In the Lonely Hour.

Grammy Awards: The Performances

There were some actual Grammys handed out Sunday night in Los Angeles, but as usual, the Grammys telecast, which aired on CBS, was all about the musical performances -- this year, there were a whopping 23.  Here's a rundown of who sang what: Rock legends AC/DC, in their first-ever Grammy performance, opened the show with their latest track, "Rock or Bust," and then segued into their classic "Highway to Hell." Many audience members donned light-up devil's horns for the song, and Lady Gaga was seen losing her mind, rocking out in the front row. Ariana Grande sang her ballad "Just…

Sunday Night's Grammy Awards Will Feature "Remarkable Combinations" of Artists, Says Exec. Producer

One of this year's Grammy nominees is Meghan Trainor, for her #1 hit "All About That Bass," and this Sunday night's Grammy telecast will be all about those "Grammy Moments" -- musical mash-ups featuring odd collections of artists that you won't see anywhere else.  The show's executive producer, Ken Ehrlich, says there are so many this year, he really can't pinpoint which one people will be talking about on Monday morning. "This year, that might be the hardest question," Ehrlich tells ABC News Radio. "I mean, this show runs the gamut...you’ve got AC/DC, Madonna, classic artists like that, and then…

Grammy Predictions: Sam Smith? Beyonce? Taylor? Who Will Win?

Going into the Grammy Awards on Sunday night, the leading nominees are Sam Smith, Pharrell Williams and Beyonce, who each have six nods. Next with four nominations each are country stars Eric Church and Miranda Lambert, rappers Iggy Azalea, Drake and Jay Z,  Sia, Usher, and alt-rockers Jack White and Beck.  But who's going to win?  Well, it may not be a Grammy sweep for one single performer. The most predictable category seems to be Best New Artist. The nominees include singer Sam Smith, Iggy Azalea, country singer/songwriter Brandy Clark, sister group HAIM, and British band Bastille, but ABC Radio's…

Ryan Tedder Rooting for Beyonce at the Grammys; Meghan Trainor Will Cry If She Wins

OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder is rooting for Beyonce to win Album of the Year at the Grammys Sunday, but it’s partly for selfish reasons. The singer/songwriter co-wrote and co-produced the track “XO” on Bey’s self-titled album, so he'll get a trophy as one of the disc's producers. “I’m in one of those interesting categories where, if she wins, I win,” Ryan tells the U.K.’s Capital FM. He says he’s all set to go up on stage with her -- if her security guard allows it. But Ryan also admits if Beyonce has to lose to someone, he hopes it’s Ed Sheeran.…

Taylor Swift's Lawyers Target Etsy Sellers over Trademark Violations

Taylor Swift takes her trademarks very seriously.  According to Buzzfeed, her legal team has been taking aim at Etsy sellers for selling merchandise featuring her lyrics and likeness. One Etsy shop owner reportedly received a trademark infringement warning last month for a T-shirt she was selling featuring a Taylor lyric. She was ordered to stop selling the product. “When we got the e-mail that the trademark infringement occurred, we were pretty shocked because while our item was popular we didn’t feel as if it had become popular enough to cause harm to Taylor Swift’s empire,” the seller, who asked to…

Christina Aguilera Pokes Fun at Pharrell in New "Voice" Preview

In a new preview for season eight of The Voice, returning coach Christina Aguilera looks like she’s having more fun than ever. "Coming back to The Voice by now is almost like coming back home," she says in the clip. "With every season that I step away, I grow as a person and that has to affect my coaching." But it hasn’t affected her sense of humor. She takes jabs at her fellow coaches, asking a  contestant at one point, “Do you want some clowns or do you want someone who takes you seriously?” And she even impersonates Pharrell Williams.…
