John Legend & Common Perform ‘Glory’ & Brings Everyone To Their Feet

Featured Image

Wow, that is all I can say about this performance. This was easily one of THE moments of the Oscars last night. Common and John Legend put everything that they had into this performance and everyone could see that. They killed it, brought down the house and brought everyone to their feet.

I have no words for how incredible this performance was. I couldn’t find a video but the whole place stood to their feet with tears in their eyes.

I am beyond happy that this song won an Oscar, it deserved it, all the way.

Top Ten Best Dressed Men Of The 2015 Oscars!

There are no guest bloggers for this post, just my own opinions! I think that I can tell if a man looks good in a suit, so I didn’t need any help with this! Now last night most men showed up wearing a black and white tux of some type. I did notice more bow-ties than usual, and I can’t stand bow-ties. Some people could pull them off while others fell short.

Let’s see who made us swoon the most this year!

10. JK Simmons

This is probably a weird pick but I think that JK was killing it on the red carpet last night! Look at his swagger! He has a chain, a hat, his pocket square matches his wife’s dress. I love it, everything about it.

9. John Stamos

Have mercy! Am I right? I mean what in the world is John Stamos doing at the Oscars, that is something I don’t know. I do know that he showed up looking as handsome as ever! I love the red pocket square to give the suit a bit of color as well. I have some to the conclusion that John Stamos will forever be attractive, this is just another photo of him on a red carpet to prove my case.

8. Ansel Elgort

Last night Ansel Elgort was a presenter but to be honest, I think that one day he could be nominated. I believe that he is right up there when it comes to actors of the future. I like that he went with dark blue, he is young, so he should have a little bit of fun with his outfit. The bow-tie is a little off, but hey, we can straighten that right up!

7. John Legend

Let’s be honest, does John Legend ever look bad? I mean the suit fits him perfect, his hair is cut perfect, his face is perfect. John always looks incredible, the Oscars wasn’t any different.

6. Miles Teller

Miles Teller is just so handsome, am I right? He reminds me of a young Vince Vaughn, everything about him does actually. Although this picture doesn’t do it justice the suit was actually a very dark navy blue which looked great on him! I don’t love how the sleeves are cuffed or how tight the pants are. I will say that some how he pulls this off though. As I said about Ansel, I do believe that we will be seeing a lot more of Miles in the future.

5. David Oyelowo

To be totally honest even though they said David’s last name a million times, I can still not sure how to say it. I love the cranberry suit though, I love it a lot actually. I like when people take a chance on a different color, I think that it shows a lot of courage considering most people want the Oscars to be simply black and white attire, very proper. Looking good David!

4. Chris Evans

1424656076965_best dressed oscars _0003_6

Let’s be real who doesn’t love seeing Chris Evans in a perfectly tailored suit, am I right? This is perfectly fit to his body, he looks incredible. I love the scruff and his blue eyes. There’s not much else to say!

3. Eddie Redmayne

Eddie Redmayne, 2015 Academy Awards

Eddie killed it the entire awards season! He won award after award, and he always looked good on the red carpet! Last night was no different! I must say, I wasn’t aware that his legs were so long, is that an odd thing to notice? This picture doesn’t show it but he also had a nice accent piece in a watch. Congrats on your big win Eddie and congrats on looking so good!

2. Neil Patrick Harris

The man of the hour gets the number two stop! I must say, I don’t love David’s suit, he kind of looks like a waiter, but Neil looks great! I love the charcoal suits, I always have and I always will! He also did an incredible job hosting the show, so bravo to him!

1. Michael Strahan

I love everything about Michael’s look, I genuinely think that he looks incredible. The black accents on the suit, the dark gray color of the suit. He is just killing it. Honestly, who would have thought that a former NFL player would win the red carpet for the Oscars? Not me, but I am glad he did!

The Grammy’s 2015 Best Dressed Men List!

I did the list for the women so I might as well do it for the men as well right? Most people assume that men just wear the whole normal suit and tie thing, but you’re wrong. There are many different ways that men rock their suits, and some are good, some are bad. Let’s get right into it, shall we?

My personal top 5 for the night.

5. Nick Jonas

It’s always nice to see some kind of pattern on the carpet. This isn’t the best use of patterns but let’s be real, Nick Jonas can really do no wrong this year. This has been his year, absolutely perfect too.The pants are a little too tight, but hey, we can work with that. I like that he took a risk, and I believe that this risk ended up paying off.

4. John Mayer

1423498367590_grammy awards best dressed men 10

Usually I am not a big fan of the huge stupid glasses, but somehow John pulled it off. I don’t know how but he did. Maybe it is simply because he was straight killing it on the guitar and it went right to my heart. I like that he didn’t go for the classic black suit, instead he went for blue and then it looks like some kind of checkered pants.

3. Julian Edelman

Clearly I am madly in love with Julian Edelman but he looks nice and suave right here, right? To me it almost looks like he is going to prom. His hand position makes him look all nervous, but still adorable. Again a suit that fits his body perfect. His haircut makes him look super sharp though, that is what gets to me.

2. John Legend

1423498367576_grammy awards best dressed men 05

John looks perfect, just perfect. This suit is perfectly suited for him. I love that he didn’t feel the need to go with the tie. The whole grey colored suit has always gotten to me. Simple yet classic.

1. Donald Glover (Childish Gambino)

1423498367580_grammy awards best dressed men 06

Well fun fact, Donald Glover didn’t smile once while on the red carpet, he made that grouchy face the entire time he walked down it. Other than the lack of happiness, I think that this is my favorite look. Everything from his hair to his loafers, just straight killing it.

Man Crush Monday: John Legend

I personally have always felt that John Legend is extremely attractive, he kind of reminds me of a little teddy bear. Do you see what I am saying there?  I just want to hug him, then let him sing to me for hours. I will go on record and say that he has one of the best voices out there right now. He doesn’t need any kind of help from weird beats, even though they did that with ‘All Of Me’.

John Legend is truly one of those artists that I respect. He is someone who writes his own music, he helps others write music, he is featured on songs. I mean he is just an all over talent. Chrissy Teigen is an extremely lucky woman, although I think that she already knows that.

John Legend, you keep doing you and singing incredible love songs that make me weak in the knees. I have a feeling we will be seeing him for decades to come. I do believe he will be one of the people who is constantly putting out good music.

Happy Monday! I hope this choice makes your week suck a little less!

Grammys 2015 – Complete Nominations List

As many people know, the Grammy’s are the biggest night in music and they are being held tonight! I personally can’t wait to watch the red carpet and see some of the catastrophes. I believe that Katy Perry will have something weird on, just a weird prediction. Taylor Swift will wear either a dark blue or a white, and then Justin Bieber will not even be there. Some of my predictions.

Last year I put together a list of who I wanted to win, who I thought was going to win, and who actually won. So right now I will pot all of the nominations, and predict who will win verse who I want to win! The bold will be who I think will win, and the italics will be who I want to win. Last year I did terrible, here’s to hoping I do better this year!

I also didn’t post every category because I know nothing about Latin music, contemporary music, or anything like that, sorry guys.

Album of the Year:
Beyonce: Beyonce
Pharrell: Girl
Ed Sheeran: X
Beck: Morning Phase
Sam Smith: In the Lonely Hour

I love Ed, I think that Ed deserves to win every single award that he is up for but the Grammy’s really love Pharrell. So my pick would be for Ed but I think that Pharrell will win for some strange reason.

Record of the Year:
Iggy Azalea ft. Charli XCX, “Fancy”
Sia, “Chandelier”
Sam Smith, “Stay With Me (Darkchild Version)”
Taylor Swift, “Shake It Off”
Meghan Trainor, “All About That Bass”

I have a weird soft spot for Meghan Trainor, I truly believe that she is incredible talented. I think that her sophomore album will probably show more of that than her most recent one. She can sing and will blow people’s minds one day. Sia will probably win though because her voice is insane and “Chandelier” is a really incredible song. So if either win I will be extremely happy.

Song of the Year
Meghan Trainor – “All About That Bass”
Sia – “Chandelier”
Taylor Swift – “Shake It Off”
Sam Smith – “Stay With Me (Darkchild Version)”
Hozier – “Take Me to Church”

Hozier will most likely not win, I am aware of that but his voice is absolutely insane. I love ‘Take Me To Church” so much I would listen to that and “Uptown Funk” on repeat for days. I am giving this one to Sia though. Honestly, I don’t care who wins this category because I like them all, I just hope Sam Smith doesn’t take it home, can’t stand him.

Best New Artist
Bastille
Iggy Azalea
Brandy Clark
HAIM
Sam Smith

Can’t lie I am not a huge Iggy fan of Iggy’s music but she deserves to win. She has dealt with people hating on her for absolutely no reason other than the fact she is a white, female rapper from Australia. I must say that I do like her during interviews so she seems fun.

Best Pop Vocal Album
Coldplay, Ghost Stories
Miley Cyrus, Bangerz
Ariana Grande, My Everything
Katy Perry, Prism
Ed Sheeran, x
Sam Smith, In the Lonely Hour

Alright, so I love Bangerz, I think that album was off the chain weird and incredible. Some of Miley’s songs were so heartfelt and incredible, can’t get it enough of it. Do I think the Miley has all the votes to win it? No, probably not, but she was nominated so that is awesome. I think that Sam Smith is going to win because everyone is obsessed with him, I personally hope he fades out after this Grammy hooplah ends.

Best Pop Solo Performance
John Legend, “All of Me (Live Version)”
Sia, “Chandelier”
Sam Smith, “Stay With Me”
Taylor Swift, “Shake It Off”
Pharrell Williams, “Happy”

John Legend deserves this award, the end.

Best Pop Duo/Group Performance
Iggy Azalea feat. Charli XCX, “Fancy”
Coldplay, “A Sky Full of Stars”
A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera, “Say Something”
Jessie J, Ariana Grande, and Nicki Minaj, “Bang Bang”
Katy Perry feat. Juicy J, “Dark Horse”

I feel like this is going to Iggy’s year to win all the awards, unless she is against Sam Smith then he will win over her. I will say that “Say Something” deserves this Grammy. That song is the saddest song in the world. I could be in the best mood, hear it and then start to cry. That is what music is about right? It is supposed to move you to your core. So I am really rooting that A Great Big World will pull this one off!

Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album
Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga, Cheek to Cheek
Annie Lennox, Nostalgia
Barry Manilow, Night Songs
Johnny Mathis, Sending You a Little Christmas
Barbra Streisand, Partners

I an completely educated in this department. I know Babs is incredible so she will probably win but I love Annie Lennox’s voice, so I am hoping that she wins!

Best Country Album:
Dierks Bentley, Riser
Eric Church, The Outsiders
Lee Ann Womack, The Way I’m Living
Brandy Clark, 12 Stories
Miranda Lambert, Platinum

If Miranda doesn’t win this category I am going to start a riot. Just be prepared for that.

Best Country Solo Performance
Eric Church, “Give Me Back My Hometown”
Hunter Hayes, “Invisible”
Miranda Lambert, “Automatic”
Carrie Underwood, “Something in the Water”
Keith Urban, “Cop Car”

Carrie Underwood deserves this award, she could out sing everyone in this category but my only worry is people against religion. You know she is a very religious woman, the song is extremely religious, I feel like a lot of people would shy away because apparently its controversial. Miranda, you got this one in the bag…I would kind of love Eric Church to win though, I love his music. Honestly, whoever wins this I would be happy!

Best Country Duo/Group Performance
The Band Perry, “Gentle On My Mind”
Miranda Lambert with Carrie Underwood, “Somethin’ Bad”
Little Big Town, “Day Drinking”
Tim McGraw feat. Faith Hill, “Meanwhile Back at Mama’s”
Keith Urban feat. Eric Church, “Raise ‘Em Up”

Miranda and Carrie better win, or again I am going to riot.

Best Country Song
Kenny Chesney, “American Kids”
Miranda Lambert, “Automatic”
Eric Church, “Give Me Back My Hometown”
Glen Campbell, “I’m Not Gonna Miss You”
Tim McGraw feat. Faith Hill, “Meanwhile Back at Mama’s”

So I really love the Eric Church song “Give Me Back My Hometown” I feel like a lot of people can relate to it. Tim McGraw is basically a country king so I think that he will take this one home.

Best Urban Contemporary Album:
Jhene Aiko, Sail Out
Beyonce, Beyonce
Chris Brown, X
Mali Music, Mail Is
Pharrell Williams, G I R L

I am saying Pharrell will take this one home. Anyone could win other than Chris Brown. Remember that time Chris Brown beat Rihanna before the Grammy’s then wasn’t allowed there for like three years? Yeah, I do too, fuck Chris Brown.

Best R&B Performance
Beyonce feat. JAY Z, “Drunk in Love”
Chris Brown feat. Usher & Rick Ross, “New Flame”
Jennifer Hudson feat. R. Kelly, “It’s Your World”
Ledisi, “Like This”
Usher, “Good Kisser”

I hated this song but I don’t like any other songs nominated. I mean I guess I hate this song the least out of all of them. I would love to see Usher win but “Good Kisser” was a truly horrible song.

Best Rock Song
Paramore, “Ain’t It Fun”
Beck, “Blue Moon”
The Black Keys, “Fever”
Ryan Adams, “Gimme Something Good”
Jack White, “Lazaretto”

Paramore deserves this! They are a band that went from having a generally small following to being one of the biggest bands in the world. Hayley Williams is perfect, and this song was everywhere. Good luck Paramore!

Best Rap Album
Eminem, The Marshall Mathers LP 2
Childish Gambino, Because the Internet
Iggy Azalea, The New Classic
Common, Nobody’s Smiling
Schoolboy Q, Oxymoron
Wiz Khalifa, Black Hollywood

I would say Eminem deserves to win this but his new music is absolutely horrible, terrible, no good music. Childish Gambino has a very different way about him so I respect his originality. Iggy will win this though and everyone is going to lose their minds.

Best Rap Solo Performance
Childish Gambino – “3005″
Drake – “0 to 100/The Catch Up”
Eminem – “Rap God”
Kendrick Lamar “i”
Lecrae – “All I Need Is You”

I love Kendrick Lamar, I am all in with him on this one.

Best Rap/Sung Collaboration
Common Featuring Jhené Aiko, “Blak Majik”
Eminem feat. Rihanna, “The Monster
I Love Makonnen feat. Drake, “Tuesday”
Schoolboy Q feat. BJ The Chicago Kid, “Studio”
Kanye West & Charlie Wilson, “Bound 2″

Eminem and Rihanna is always gold, Common could win it though, I could see him winning this. If Bound 2 wins I am going to die laughing though. Go Ri though, Rihanna is my girl!

Best Rap Song
Nicki Minaj, “Anaconda”
Kanye West & Charlie Wilson, “Bound 2″
Kendrick Lamar, “I”
Wiz Khalifa, “We Dem Boyz”
Drake – “0 to 100/The Catch Up”

I am rooting for Nicki Minaj just because that song is so weird and bizarre, I like weird and bizarre. Kendrick should win though, I really hope that he does.
