In a shocking move, the Recording Academy has announced a series of broad and sweeping changes to the Grammy Awards that will see the number of prizes presented reduced from 109 to 78 and gender-based categories in pop, R&B, rock and country stripped away entirely with awards for "solo performance" in each genre being awarded instead. "Every year, we diligently examine our awards structure...

Every awards show gets people talking about the outfits, but the Grammys this year were especially watercooler-worthy. Rihanna wore something like a layer cake, Nicki Minaj solidified herself as the heir to Lady Gaga's style with an off-the-wall leopard get-up and Gaga herself ... well, who'll ever forget the giant egg? PopEater hit the streets of New York to gauge people's reactions to the...

Justin Bieber might have briefly looked shocked over his Best New Artist loss at the Grammys on Sunday night, and his avid, sometimes maniacal, team of Beliebers are surely springing forth against winner Esperanza Spalding. But Biebs told PopEater there were in fact no hard feelings about the evening. "Yes, I wanted to win, but I had an amazing night and performed with Usher and Jaden. That's...

Lady Gaga sure knows how to make an entrance, but after arriving at the Grammys last night encased in a giant egg atop a cross and carried by four half-naked guys, there are signs the stunt may have backfired on her. My spies backstage tell me Gaga was one of the official punchlines of the evening. "This was more ridiculous than Bjork's swan dress she wore at the Oscars," an insider tells me....

While many were simply wondering "Esperanza who?" when the jazz singer won the Best New Artist award at last night's Grammys, Justin Bieber fans were nothing short of outraged. And they took to their favorite Internet megaphone to vent their Bieber frustration.

Christina Aguilera remembered all the lyrics during her performance at the Grammys on Sunday. Too bad she forgot how to walk. Yes, yes, yes, the 'Beautiful' belter sang wonderfully and seemed to redeem herself a week after fudging the national anthem at the Super Bowl. But all anyone is talking about the morning after is the stumble seen round the world. "It's a trainwreck," one insider...

In the video, Perry was seen sporting a veil,...

The 53rd Annual Grammys were in need of some spunk, and Cee Lo Green came to the rescue with more than enough of it. After Jamie Foxx introduced the performer, the stage opened up to an out-of-this world scene, rockets and puppets included. But the sight that caught the most attention was Green himself, who played the familiar opening piano keys of his smash hit 'F**k You,' or in this case 'Forget...

Before tonight, there were parts of the county who probably thought Lady Antebellum was some sort of degenerative bone condition. Now, the pop-country group has emerged as the king of Grammy night and a force to be reckoned with on the music stage, outshining 10-time nominee Eminem, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry to win multiple awards. But in the end, the top prize (best album) was a bombshell, going...
