Britney Spears & Lady Gaga, '2011 MTV Video Music Awards'As always, the 'MTV Video Music Awards' (Sun., 9PM ET on MTV) was a spectacle of sight and sound, filled with the hottest faces and voices in popular music. Jay-Z and Kany West lit up the stage with a duet, while Mrs. Jay-Z, Beyonce, performed and revealed that the couple was expecting.

Lady Gaga presented yet another crazy costume, only this time the craziest thing about it was that she was portraying a man -- her own lover, no less. She stayed in character to present Britney Spears with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, where the pair almost kissed, but Spears said, "I've done that already."

Rebecca Black - America's Got TalentMost contestants on 'America's Got Talent' (Wed., 9PM ET on NBC) can only dream of having the kind of overnight success that singer Rebecca Black has enjoyed thanks to her earworm single 'Friday' -- but does she actually have talent?

The jury's still out on that one, and there was nothing particularly spectacular about her vocals on stage, but the kid seems determined to have her 15 minutes of fame no matter what the haters say, and if people keep buying, Black will keep selling.

Rebecca Black talks 'Friday,' 'My Moment,' and Katy Perry on 'The Early Show'Rebecca Black gained instant fame in February with her much-parodied song 'Friday,' a YouTube sensation that, as 'The Early Show' (weekdays, 7AM on CBS) reported Tuesday, earned her 167 million hits. The 14-year-old singer's popularity inspired an inevitable backlash, and Monday she released her response, a new single called 'My Moment.'

The report talked about the backlash, specifically the negative comments internet commenters made about her voice and inexperience. Black seemed to take it in stride, joining Katy Perry for her video spoof, 'Last Friday Night,' and making a few videos lampooning her song for FunnyorDie.com. "All of it has been so amazing," she told 'Early.'

Rebecca Black Takes Osama Bin Laden to an Eternal 'Friday' in Hell on 'Kimmel' (VIDEO)

Osama Bin Laden & Rebecca Black, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'Just when you'd got Rebecca Black's infectious internet hit 'Friday' out of your head, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC) had to go and put it right back. In a goofy video "tribute" to the death of Bin Laden, Kimmel modified the lyrics of Black's viral sensation to better suit the current situation.

"Hitler in the front seat, Saddam in the back seat" and "It's Friday, Friday, fry in Hell on Friday!" replaced the nonsensical original lyrics, giving the song a new and as yet unheard coherence. It's as if the tune and music and vocal stylings of Rebecca Black were meant for a parody song.

'Glee' Cast to Cover Rebecca Black's 'Friday'

GleeThe cast of 'Glee' will be having "fun, fun, fun, fun" pretty soon. Confused? Well, it was bound to happen: The cast of 'Glee' will reportedly cover Rebecca Black's YouTube sensation 'Friday.'

According to Vulture, the song will get the 'Glee' treatment from cast members Kevin McHale, Chord Overstreet and Mark Salling.

This isn't the first time 'Glee' has covered an uber-popular song. They have previously performed Cee Lo Green's 'Forget You,' a number of Lady Gaga's hits, and later this season 'Born This Way' guest star Gwyneth Paltrow will sing Adele's 'Turning Tables.'

The one difference? Those songs are by actual recording artists; 'Friday' is by a 13-year-old girl.

Stephen Colbert and Taylor Hicks sing 'Friday' on 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'
Last night, Stephen Colbert made good on his promise to cover Rebecca Black's YouTube sensation (some would call it an earworm) 'Friday' on 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.' And it was epic.

Just a bit of the funny backstory: earlier this week, Colbert claimed that his "best friend for six months," Fallon, was going to match a $26,000 donation to DonorsChoose.org. Fallon said he promised no such thing, but in the spirit of saying your BFFSM will do something without consulting him first, he promised that Colbert would sing 'Friday' with the Roots if his audience could raise the $26,000 by Friday.

Well, they more than doubled that amount, and NBC Universal kicked in another 26 grand; more than $80,000 in contributions were made to this site, where educators solicit donations for school supplies and projects.

'The Colbert Report'If you've been following the saga of "BFFs for six months" Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Fallon, you'd know that last week Colbert pledged $26,000 of Fallon's money to the charity DonorsChoose.org, but without asking Fallon first.

Fallon responded Monday to this by announcing that if he could raise that $26,000 from the public, then Colbert would be forced to appear on 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon' and sing Rebecca Black's viral sensation 'Friday' with The Roots.

"What the f**k?" Colbert said on Tuesday's 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central), after playing the clip of Fallon saying that $26,000 buys the public a singing Colbert.

Rebecca Black, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'At 36.5 million views of her 'Friday' video on YouTube as of this writing, Rebecca Black's reign as the current queen of Internet buzz is continuing strong. All the attention got her a spot on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC), where she performed the song and even got to chat with Jay Leno.

Sure, her success has come on the heels of a ditty many are considering the worst song ever written. But as they say in show business, there's no such thing as bad publicity.

When Leno asked her if she'd seen some of the online parodies of her song, she said, "I think they can either be really hilarious and make me laugh like 'til I cry, but others are really lame."

Black and her song have been repeatedly bashed on the Internet over the past week, with jabs taken at the teen's singing ability and the song's simplistic lyrical content. Example: "Kickin' in the front seat / Sittin' in the back seat / Gotta make my mind up / Which seat can I take?"
