Britney Spears & Rihanna, 'The 2011 Billboard Music Awards'All the stars of popular music came out for 'The 2011 Billboard Music Awards' (Sun., 8PM ET on ABC), where they saw Justin Bieber and Eminem dominate the night with six awards apiece.

Other big winners included Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Mumford & Sons, Taio Cruz, Taylor Swift and Usher with three awards apiece.

The night was filled with memorable performances as well, including Cee Lo Green floating through the sky at a piano and Britney Spears and Rihanna in a sexy duet that climaxed in a lingerie pillow fight.

Beyoncé received the Billboard Millennium Award, while Neil Diamond was given the Icon Award. Diamond joked that he'd "Google it right after the show and find out exactly how an icon is supposed to handle himself."

Neil Diamond Attacks Jimmy Kimmel With a Sword! (VIDEO)

Neil Diamond Attacks Jimmy Kimmel With a SwordSinger Neil Diamond appeared on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC). And the guest managed to reverse a fairly common dynamic. Talk show guests often complain about being "attacked" during an interview. But the opposite took place tonight. Host Jimmy Kimmel faced a spontaneous attack... from a singer/songwriter with a sword.

Kimmel asked the singer about his '70s album 'Hot August Night.' The album's cover shows the artist in a fairly racy pose. In response, Neil said he missed his 1970s-era hair. Okay then. It seemed like Jimmy was actually pointing out how the cover emphasized Diamond's crotch, not his hair ... but either way.

The 69-year-old singer may be losing some hair these days -- but there's one thing he hasn't lost. Can you guess what that is? (And no, this has nothing to do with Neil Diamond's crotch.)

'Glee' and the Barbra Streisand Connection

by Allison Waldman, posted Apr 29th 2010 2:02PM
barbra_streisand_high_school_yearbookEver since 'Glee' began, there's been a thread running through it that's always reminded me of Barbra Streisand. In last Tuesday's episode, the thread was more like a rope, as four characters did the medley "One Less Bell/A House Is Not A Home," just like Streisand did in the 1971 Burt Bacharach TV special.

Apparently, others have picked up on this connection, too. This review in New York magazine suggested that the 'Glee' should really do a Barbra Streisand episode -- like the Madonna show -- because Barbra is 'the patron saint' of 'Glee' kids.

Whether they do an all-Streisand show or not, the writer made a great point about how the kids in New Directions are more akin to Brooklyn Barbra than almost any other performer. Before she graduated Erasmus Hall High School in 1959, Barbra Streisand was in glee club. (So was Neil Diamond!) But Streisand wasn't the star of Choral Club. The director, Mr. De Pietto, preferred blonde soprano,Trudy Wallace, and gave her all the solos. Streisand was put in the back, in the alto section.

Neil Diamond, Mary J. Blige, Usher and others performed for President Barack Obama during the 28th annual 'Christmas in Washington' holiday concert. Obama offered season's greetings to the nation, as well as special well-wishes to American men and women in the armed forces serving overseas.

"As so many of our fellow citizen struggle through tough times, we are called upon to help neighbors in need," Obama said. "And it's why, with our men and women in uniform serving far from home in harm's way, our fervent wish remains this season, and all seasons, let there be peace on Earth."

Everywhere around the world, they're coming to celebrate Chanukah

by Danny Gallagher, posted Dec 10th 2009 6:30PM
If I were Adam Sandler, I would be peeing my pants right now. I also wouldn't be wasting my day whining about primetime game shows and getting fat from sitting in front of my computer twelve hours a day. And I'm sure I'd have an official "pants guy" who could provide me with a pair of pee-stain-free pants at the push of an intercom button.

Holy music uber-god Neil Diamond has resurrected Sandler's famed "Chanukah Song," a song first made famous during his stint on Saturday Night Live, in a cover song for his new Christmas album A Cherry, Cherry Christmas. He also put together an animated video of the Chanukah carol that's not only hilarious, but marks the first and last time the world will see a collaboration involving Diamond, William Shatner and OJ Simpson, until, of course, the fourth Naked Gun movie gets a green light.

AI7 Report Card: The season that was

by Jason Hughes, posted May 27th 2008 1:03PM
AI7 Top 12We scoured the earth (and the archives at various record companies for failed projects that showed vocal promise) to create the greatest assemblage of singing talent American Idol has ever seen! So what happened? After last year's virtual snooze-fest, how did a season that truly did give us perhaps the greatest depth of talent we've ever seen (an argument could be made for Season Five) give us such lackluster shows?

After Sanjaya-gate last year, the biggest controversy to come out this year was that finalist David Hernandez used to be a stripper and David Archuleta's dad might be a Mr. Meany-Pants. And we got to be pissed that Kristy Lee Cook outlasted the likes of Michael Johns. Not until we got to the finale of Davids did things get really intense.
