Bruno Mars feels his new song "Let It Rain" fits in with the new Twilight Saga movie perfectly.
The singer recorded the track for the penultimate installment of the vampire movie, Breaking Dawn: Part 1, and says the song pays tribute to the romance between lead characters Edward Cullen and Bella Swan.
"When I saw the scenes I was already working on a dark love song. In every relationship you don't want to lose your friend. That's the hardest part. I didn't want to write it like 'I'm gonna sink my teeth into you.' It was just honest, pure emotion."
As well as being pleased with the song, Bruno was also impressed with the movie as he experienced a variety of emotions: "I watched some parts that made me laugh. I watched some parts that made me bawl into tears and just cry and cry. I thought it was shot beautifully. They did some really cool stuff. The cinematography was great. And the storyline."
How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying hasn’t yet opened on Broadway, but someone managed to sneak a video recorder into one of the preview shows. We’re using their daringness to bring you a video of
Harry Potter Daniel Radcliffe singing on the big stage. Frankly, we’re pretty impressed. Not too bad for a boy wizard!

The hosts of the 83rd Academy Awards really want to host for you, you, you, as this funny video clip proves. Anne Hathaway and James Franco put this little piece together to promote the event, a tribute to "You're the One That I Want" from Grease (which we teased last week). As much as we adore James Franco, we're coming around to the realization that he's no singer. Don't believe us? Listen to the video and find out.
Gwyneth Paltrow delivered a beautiful, heartfelt performance of “Coming Home” at this year's Oscars, the original song from her film Country Strong. The tune was one of the nominees in the Best Original Song category, and Paltrow’s beautiful performance made a strong case for why the ditty deserved to win the statue.
It didn’t, however. Randy Newman won his second Oscar at the 83rd Academy Awards for his original song “We Belong Together” from Toy Story 3, which he also performed live on the big stage.
The 83rd Academy Awards was peppered with montages, witty jokes from the evening's hosts and presenters and more than one great musical performance. As a tribute to the five orignal songs nominated for this year's awards, each one was performed live on the huge Oscar stage.
Tangled's “I See the Light” was beautifully crooned by Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi. Moore wore a dark blue, feathery ball gown for the number, and still managed to sound even more beautiful than she looked. Their sensational performance, viewable in the video above, was one of the Oscar highlights for the broadcast.
We told you they were coming, and now we’ve got them -- two original tracks from FOX's Glee. The songs won’t be unveiled on the show until mid-March, but if you can’t stand the wait just follow the jump to take a listen. Lea Michele (as Rachel Berry) sings “Get It Right” solo, while the entire New Directions gang delivers the second song, “Loser Like Me.”

Audiences will get a chance to hear Lady Gaga and Elton John collaborate once again nearly a year after their joint Grammys performance.
In the upcoming animated film Gnomeo and Juliet (pictured above), the two musicians can be heard on the tune “Hello, Hello.” As you could possibly guess from the name, the song will be played when the movie’s title characters (voiced by James McAvoy and Emily Blunt) first meet.
The Disney film – produced by John and partner David Furnish – will open on February 11.
