Kiesza performs “Hideaway” on The Ellen Degeneres Show

I can’t even walk down the steps without falling, but Kiesza performed her breakout hit “Hideaway” on The Ellen Degeneres Show walking up AND down stairs and through the aisles in the audience effortlessly. I’m a bit jealous, obviously.

The “Giant In My Heart” singer not only brought the viral one-take dance video to life throughout Degeneres’ studio, but she also added some new fun dance moves into the mix.

If you weren’t addicted to this song before, this should certainly do the trick.

Kiesza will release her debut album Sound of a Woman on Oct. 21. Continue reading

Jhene Aiko performs on The Ellen Degeneres Show

Jhene Aiko stopped by The Ellen Degeneres Show to perform her Sail Out hit single “The Worst” earlier today. The singer swayed along to the popular song and delivered an improved vocal performance compared to previous live show tapings.

The highlight of the performance wasn’t Aiko, though. It was her band. A string section and a guitarist that veered of course to incorporate melodies from two oldies towards the end of the song, added a fresh vibe to the popular song.

Aiko is scheduled to release her Def Jam debut album later this year.

Watch the performance and share your thoughts below!

Sia performs on The Ellen Degeners Show

Sia appeared on The Ellen Degeneres Show today to perform her latest single “Chandelier.”

The singer-songwriter, who as of recently does not like to face the audience during performances, stood in the corner of the stage, which was recreated to look like the home in the music video for the single. Dance Mom’s Maddie Ziegler recreated the choreography from the viral visuals as Sia sang the vocally challenging songs. The performance wasn’t perfect vocally, but that only added emphasis to the song’s lyrics. You try sounding perfect when your life is out of control and you’re metaphorically swinging from a light fixture. Hmphh.

“Chandelier” is the lead single form the singer’s forthcoming album 1000 Forms of Fear. Continue reading

Ariana Grande’s new single is a MAJOR problem. We won’t know for sure until tomorrow, but forecasts show that the lead single from the young star’s forthcoming sophomore album sold 425,000 copies in it’s first week.

Grande has already performed the new song at two awards shows (Radio Disney Music Awards and iHeartRadio Music Awards) and today she stopped by The Ellen Degeneres Show to belt out the catchy song for a third time.

It’s no wonder Rihanna couldn’t stop giggling at the star’s performance during the iHeartRadio Music Awards. She looks so adorable when she dances! Continue reading

Pharrell stopped by The Ellen Degeneres Show recently and performed his latest G I R L single “Come Get It Bae.” Miley Cyrus wasn’t there to perform her part of the catchy song, unfortunately, but Pharrell still seemed to enjoy himself and with the help of his backup dancers and singers, he was able to deliver a solid performance.

I can’t wait to see the music video for this single. I know it’s going to feature crazy fashion from Pharrell and some controversial moves from Miley Cyrus! Continue reading

Toni Braxton & Babyface make hurting feel (and look) so good! The duo appeared on The Ellen Degeneres Show recently to perform their Love, Marriage & Divorce single “Hurt You” together. The album finds the two artists singing about their experiences with falling in and out of love with a spouse and “Hurt You” perfectly encompasses all of those emotions.

As far as the performance goes, the two looked and sounded good! The best thing about this performance is how much fun they seem to be having together. Their energy is definitely contagious. Continue reading
