Katy Perry pulled out all the stops for her Grammy performance Sunday night. While hubby Russell Brand looked on from the audience, the pop star belted out a sweet version of her song “Not Like the Movies.” As she crooned prettily while suspended from a massive length of fabric, her wedding video was projected onto the impressive backdrop.
Perry wed Brand on October 23 in a private ceremony in India, and this is the first chance fans have had to see the big event. In the brief video, you can see the couple’s wedding kiss.
After the sweet performance was over, Perry jumped down from her swing to energetically deliver her banner hit “Teenage Dream.”

Christina Aguilera is the talk of Super Bowl XLV . . . for all the wrong reasons. The diva flubbed the lines of “The Star-Spangled Banner” during her game-opening performance, and you can watch her mistake in the video above. Aguilera has already released a statement saying “I can only hope that everyone could feel my love for this country and that the true spirit of its anthem still came through.”
Lea Michele is a tough act to follow. Aguilera took the stage after Michele belted out “America the Beautiful” without a hitch, but to her credit Christina’s flub was hardly noticeable. Instead of singing “o’er the ramparts we watched,” the former Mickey Mouse Clubber cried out the line “what so proudly we watch.”

The Black Eyed Peas put on a highly-produced halftime show for Super Bowl XVL watchers, though they didn’t do it alone. Quick guest appeareances from Slash and Usher help put the show over the top.
The Peas performed a variety of melodies, including their hit "Boom Boom Pow" and "The Time (Dirty Bit)."
Some (meaning, Perez Hilton) are calling it the “best Super Bowl half time show in years,” but others have an opposing opinion. Yahoo’s review found the Peas to be a little nervous an uncomfortable. Their verdict? Usher should have headlined the entire show.
Form your own opinion, and watch the whole thing in the video above.

Watch Glee’s Lea Michele kicking off Super Bowl XLV with her gorgeous vocals in the video above.
Michele's rendition of "America the Beautiful" surely made hearts weep with patrotism. She was so stunning -- audibly and visually. Maybe the planners will do the right thing next year and ask her to sing the national anthem.
Mark Zuckerberg may have surprised Saturday Night Live viewers with his appearance last night, but it was a different guest who actually showed some hidden comedic talent.
Nicki Minaj, who at one point joked about marrying Drake, had the audiences laughing by playing Kenan Thompson's wife in "The Bride of Blackenstein."
Earlier in the program, the singer contributed her musical skills to Andy Samberg and Lonely Island's latest Digital Short: "The Creep." (You can see that clip after jump.)
Could there be an acting future ahead for Minaj? I wouldn't be surprised.

It’s starting to get ugly between Glee writer/co-creator Ryan Murphy and Kings of Leon drummer Nathan Followill, and all because of “Use Somebody.”
The band famously turned Glee down when the show requested to use the song.
Murphy responded to the Kings of Leon snub in the midst of a lengthy Hollywood Reporter article, saying “[expletive deleted] you, Kings of Leon.” He went on to say, “Okay, hate on arts education” and a few other choice statements.
Nathan Followill fired off an angry Twitter tirade telling Murphy to “let it go. See a therapist, get a manicure, buy a new bra.” He jumped back on his page two hours later to offer an apology: “I’m sorry 4 anyone that misconstrued my comments as homophobic or mysoginistic [sic]. I’m so not that kind of person. I really do apologize.”

Even if you watched both hours of American Idol's debut Wednesday tonight, you may have missed Randy Jackson's most interesting critique this week.
During a recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the reality show judge was asked to grade one his new coworkers.
"Now Jennifer Lopez -- a beautiful woman, a lot of charisma ... but if she was in front of you singing ... On a grade of 1-10, what grade would you give Jennifer Lopez?" Jimmy pressed.
