One Direction returns for its second year to headline the Billboard Hollywood Party as part of ABC’s telecast of “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2016.” The group will perform three songs throughout the show during the bi-coastal celebration. They join previously announced performer Carrie Underwood, who will be performing for over 1 million fans in Times Square, and millions more on TV, moments before the ball drops. With over 38 performances and 5 ½ hours of music, America’s biggest celebration of the year will take place on THURSDAY, DECEMBER 31 beginning at 8 p.m. ET/PT on the ABC Television Network.

“It’s been an incredible year for us and we can’t wait to ring in the New Year with all our fans on New Year’s Rockin’ Eve,” said One Direction. “It’s an honor to be back at the Billboard Hollywood Party for our second year.”

The show will include hours of special performances and reports on New Year’s celebrations from around the globe. Ryan Seacrest will host and lead the traditional countdown to midnight from Times Square in New York City as he has for the last 10 years with live reporting from actress and comedian Jenny McCarthy.  Popstar Fergie will oversee the festivities at the Billboard Hollywood Party in Los Angeles.

One Direction — composed of Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson — formed in 2010 on the U.K.’s award-winning TV talent show “The X Factor.” The group’s debut single, “What Makes You Beautiful,” was released in September 2011 and went straight to #1 in the U.K. and top five in the U.S. on the Billboard Hot 100. The group’s first album, “Up All Night,” following suit, topping the Billboard 200 album chart. The release of their second album, “Take Me Home,” took One Direction to No. 1 in 37 countries. Their third album, “Midnight Memories,” was announced as the biggest selling album globally of 2013. One Direction’s fourth No. 1 studio album, “FOUR” featured hit singles “Steal My Girl” and “Night Changes.” With “Four,” One Direction made Billboard history as the only group in the 59-year history of the chart to see their first four albums debut at number one. The band has sold more than 65 million records worldwide, achieved a total of 137 number ones, and is the recipient of five Billboard Music Awards, four MTV Video Music Awards and five American Music Awards, among others. They have a massive 117 million combined Twitter followers and 38 million Facebook fans. One Direction surprised fans in July 2015 with the release of their single “Drag Me Down,” which debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 and previewed the band’s fifth studio album ‘MADE IN THE A.M.,’ which was release on Nov. 13, 2015. When Fellow album track “Perfect” entered the Hot 1-00 at No. 10 earlier this month, it marked One Direction’s fifth top 10 debut, pushing them past the Beatles for most top 10 debuts in the chart’s 57-year history.

“Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2016” is produced by dick clark productions with Ryan Seacrest, Allen Shapiro and Mike Mahan serving as executive producers and Barry Adelman and Mark Bracco are co-executive producers. Larry Klein is producer.

ONE DIRECTION ARRIVE AT MADAME TUSSAUDS LAS VEGAS
AS PART OF THEIR “WORLD TOUR”

Sensational British Boy Band Now on Display through February 2016

Wax figures of the award-winning pop group, One Direction, are now on display at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas through February 2016 as part of their “world tour.” All five original members of 1D will be featured at the attraction, including Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson and recently departed member, Zayn Malik. The pop stars are featured sitting on bleachers with plenty of room for fans to cozy up to the figures for the perfect photo opp.

First launched in London in 2013, the One Direction figures were created in close collaboration with the band. Over the course of two sittings, 40 talented studio artists worked to take hundreds of precise measurements, examined their skin tones, matched their eye colors and tested hair swatches to ensure accuracy. The stars’ personal hairstylist then added the final touches to the boys’ stylish strands. Dressed in clothes donated by the singers themselves, the figures are adorned in their signature smart-casual stage style. The band members were notably stunned by the likeness of their figures. The figure creation took four months to complete and the cost for each figure totaled approximately $300,000.

One Direction launched to super-stardom in 2010 after appearing on televised British singing competition, The X Factor. The chart-topping band has consistently been one of the most requested figure creations by Madame Tussauds’ guests.

“We’re just kind of a bit overwhelmed. We’ve been to Madame Tussauds and seen the kind of people who are in there. It’s crazy to think that we will be up there with them,” commented Harry Styles.

Niall Horan was similarly elated, stating, “We were super excited to find out that they were making us and that people felt we were worthy of a figure.”

Luke Bryan

 

Luke Bryan – Since the debut of his first album in 2007, Luke Bryan has placed 14 singles at #1 and sold nearly 8 million albums with 30 million digital tracks from his five studio albums. He has been named Entertainer of the Year by both the Academy of Country Music (twice) and the Country Music Association.

This is Bryan’s third consecutive album to debut at #1 on the Billboard Top 200. Kill The Lights is the third-largest-selling album debut in 2015 at the time of its release, after R&B / hip hop releases from Drake and Kendrick Lamar. Kill The Lights is also the highest country album debut in the last two years, since Bryan’s Crash My Party debuted at #1 in August 2013.

Karen Fairchild

Karen Fairchild (Little Big Town) – GRAMMY Award-winning country super group Little Big Town, comprised of Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman, Phillip Sweet and Jimi Westbrook, is one of country music’s most iconic foursomes. The multi-Platinum-selling band is currently the reigning ACM and CMA (3x) Vocal Group of the Year, and they are the most recent inductees into the famed Grand Ole Opry. Little Big Town is responsible for some of the format’s biggest hits including “Day Drinking,” “Pontoon,” “Little White Church,” “Boondocks” and their most recent record-breaking smash, “Girl Crush.” Little Big Town is now out on the PAIN KILLER TOUR in support of their latest Capitol Nashville release, Pain Killer. For more information, visit www.LittleBigTown.com.

Charlie Puth

Charlie Puth – Charlie Puth has fast become a worldwide star thanks to the international smash hit, “See You Again,” by Wiz Khalifa (Feat. Charlie Puth). The 4x RIAA platinum certified track, which was co-written and co-produced by Puth, is featured on Atlantic Records’ FURIOUS 7: ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK. It has entered the history books as one of the decade’s biggest singles, topped Billboard’s “Hot 100” for a stunning 12 weeks, hit No. 1 on the iTunes Store’s “Top Songs” chart in a remarkable 101 countries, and shattered Spotify records by becoming the most streamed track ever in a single day (with 3.18 million global streams on April 8th alone) and in a single week (a stunning 21.9 million worldwide streams). Puth is also seeing huge success with his hit single “Marvin Gaye” feat. Meghan Trainor, which is featured on his upcoming debut album NINE TRACK MIND along with current single “One Call Away.” As if that weren’t enough, Puth recently teamed up with Lil Wayne for “Nothing But Trouble,” the new single from Big Beat Records’ hugely anticipated soundtrack for 808, the landmark documentary chronicling the incredible story of the influential Roland TR-808 drum machine. A Berklee College of Music graduate, Puth has found himself among modern pop’s most in-demand co-writers and producers – recent credits include two tracks on Jason Derulo’s acclaimed new album Everything Is 4, the R&B chart-topping single “Slow Motion” by Atlantic’s own Trey Songz, and further collaborations not yet announced.

meghan

Meghan Trainor – The Nantucket-born pop singer and songwriter earned superstar status in 2014 the old-fashioned way—with infectious, inimitable, and inescapable music. Her debut single “All About That Bass” went 9-times RIAA platinum, eventually received two Grammy® Award nominations, won Billboard Music Awards for “Top Hot 100 Song” and “Top Digital Song,” held #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for eight weeks, and received over 1 billion YouTube/VEVO views in less than a year. However, she didn’t stop there. Her full-length debut, TITLE [Epic Records] crashed the Billboard Top 200 at #1 in early 2015 and broke records as the “biggest-selling debut for a female artist’s first full-length album in more than five years” and “the biggest-selling debut for a solo artist’s first full-length in more than three years.” The critically acclaimed album also produced the double platinum hits “Lips Are Movin” and “Dear Future Husband” and platinum “Like I’m Gonna Lose You” featuring John Legend.  Meghan sold out every date of her first national tour and went on to pack venues during Summer 2015’s THE MTRAIN TOUR. However, this star has only just started to shine, and you’ll be hearing more about her soon.

Hailing from a small town in the western suburbs of Sydney, Australia, 5 Seconds of Summer blazed onto the scene and the charts, with their self-titled debut album entering the Billboard 200 at No. 1, selling 260,000 units in the U.S. in its first week of release, marking the biggest debut for a new act in 2014. It topped the iTunes charts in a total of 76 countries.  Their sophomore album, Sounds Good Feels Good, will be released on October 23 via Hi or Hey Records/Capitol Records. 5 Seconds of Summer took home the trophy for New Artist of the Year Presented by Kohl’s at the “2014 American Music Awards.”

Multi-platinum singer and actress Selena Gomez redefines her role as a pop artist on her new album Revival which recently debuted at #1 on Billboard’s album chart.  Powerful and passionately charged, thrilling and sophisticated, Revival has also earned Gomez a host of rave reviews. Entertainment Weekly called it “one of fall’s sleekest albums” and “as fresh and forward-thinking as the music of indie darlings Tove Lo and FKA Twigs,” while Rolling Stone raved “this is the sound of a newly empowered pop artist growing into her strengths like never before.” USA Today noted that “Gomez is bound to get at least a few skeptics off of Instagram and onto the dance floor” with her “cool, groovy and electro-savvy” album. “Gomez arrives with a pop vengeance throughout the record, as ear-sucking hooks and telling lyrics lay the groundwork for ’80s-infused dance riffs and head-rushing genre-hopping that saturates all 14 tracks,” raved Complex. The first single from Revival, “Good For You” featuring A$AP Rock is Gomez’s biggest hit to date.  It is her fastest-ever platinum seller and spent three consecutive weeks at #1 at Top 40 radio.  Revival  marks the latest chapter in a career that’s brought Gomez from starring on television at age 15 to taking a central role in Harmony Korine’s 2012 cult classic “Spring Breakers” — all while selling more than 22 million singles worldwide. Gomez announced that she will embark on her worldwide “Revival Tour” in 2016. The first leg will find Gomez traveling to 41 cities across the United States and Canada. The tour kicks off in Las Vegas on May 6th at Mandalay Bay and hits major markets including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston, Dallas, Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, and more.

 

 Carrie Underwood 7
Carrie Underwood emerged from the promise of her 2005 American Idol win to become a true multi-format, multi-media superstar, spanning achievements in music, television and film.  A seven-time GRAMMY® Award winner, she has amassed nearly 100 major honors, sold 58 million records worldwide, and recorded 21 #1 singles, 11 of which she co-wrote.  The first female artist to be twice named the Academy of Country Music’s Entertainer of the Year, Underwood was recognized as Pollstar’s top female country touring artist for her headlining tours in 2008, 2010, and 2012.  Her four studio albums, Some HeartsCarnival RidePlay On, and Blown Away – each certified multi-Platinum or Platinum, and each an American Music Awards winner as Country Album of the Year – tallied 38 weeks at #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart with songs that have been streamed more than 1.5 billion times worldwide.  In 2013, she starred as Maria von Trapp in NBC’s three-hour holiday blockbuster, the Emmy®-winning The Sound of Music Live!, whose airings attracted 44 million viewers.  In late 2014, the Grand Ole Opry member released her first hits collection, Greatest Hits: Decade #1.  Celebrating her first 10 years of music, the 25 songs included two new hits co-written by Underwood: the Platinum-certified, GRAMMY-winning “Something in the Water,” as well as the #1 smash “Little Toy Guns.”  In September of 2015, she began her third season as the voice of primetime television’s #1 program, Sunday Night Football, and on November 4, she’ll return for an eighth consecutive year as co-host of the CMA Awards.  Underwood is at radio now with her record-breaking single “Smoke Break,” the first single released from her fifth studio album, Storyteller, out worldwide on October 23, 2015.

Dominating with the GOLD-certified JUST AS I AM (The Valory Music Co.), Brantley Gilbert notched his first #1 Billboard Country Albums debut and holds the third-highest Country debut of 2014 as well as a Top 10 spot on this year’s Top Albums chart (Soundscan). The album recently took home the American Music Award for Favorite Country Album and produced his latest single “One Hell of an Amen;” the PLATINUM-certified #1 hit “Bottoms Up” and the Top 10, GOLD-certified “Small Town Throwdown,” featuring labelmates Justin Moore and Thomas Rhett.

Brantley’s previous project, the PLATINUM-certified HALFWAY TO HEAVEN DELUXE, produced two PLATINUM-certified #1 hits – “You Don’t Know Her Like I Do” and “Country Must Be Country Wide.” As a celebrated songwriter, he has also penned #1 songs “My Kinda Party,” “Dirt Road Anthem” for Jason Aldean, among others. Brantley recently wrapped the second leg of his LET IT RIDE TOUR and will join Kenny Chesney in 2015 for THE BIG REVIVAL TOUR.

Eighteen-year-old UK breakout, Ella Henderson, started her journey to fame as a contestant on the X Factor UK in 2012. Ella was the favorite to win the show but wound up finishing in sixth place, upon which she was immediately signed by Simon Cowell to his label SYCO. Ella now marks her arrival with debut single “Ghost,” which was co-written with One Republic’s Ryan Tedder and is already platinum in the UK and Australia, as well as the fastest selling debut single in the UK with the second biggest radio audience of the year. “Ghost” recently broke into the Top 10 on iTunes in the US and its music video currently boasts over 33 million views on Vevo. Ella is also making her way to the forefront in the US with recent performances on Good Morning America, The TODAY Show, Dancing with the Stars, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Late Night with Seth Meyers, The Voice, and the 2014 American Music Awards Coca-Cola Red Carpet Live Pre-Show. Ella has been dubbed an ‘Artist on the Verge’ by Billboard Magazine and is also in the running for their ‘21 Under 21’ 2015 Class. Her debut album Chapter One went straight to #1 on the UK Album Chart and will be released in the US on January 13, 2015 via Columbia Records/SYCO.

Island Records Artist, Nick Jonas announces himself as a brand-new musician on newly released self-titled solo debut. Who Jonas is now is a 22 year old multi-talented artist stepping out on his own and re-inventing himself after achieving worldwide fame with The Jonas Brothers. The Grammy-nominated group sold 20 million albums and toured the globe several times over before calling it quits in October 2013. Its youngest member has lived a lot of life in those years and his experiences are reflected on his self-titled album which was released nationwide on November 11 via Island Records. The album’s smash single and radio hit, “Jealous,” penned by Jonas and co-written by with Nolan Lambroza and Simon Wilcox, peaked at #8 on Billboard Hot 100 and is now certified platinum. Jonas attributes the album’s darker overtones partially to the fact that while he was recording, he was also shooting the gritty television show Kingdom — a mixed martial arts family drama that premieres on DirecTV’s Audience Network on October 8. Jonas plays an MMA prize fighter who holds his cards close to his chest. This year, Jonas embarked on a Club Tour in support of his album, and visited 12 cities across the United States and Canada including Houston, Dallas, Chicago, Boston, Los Angeles and New York and will be joining Iggy Azalea on her upcoming Great Escape Tour in Spring 2015.

Nico & Vinz are a Norwegian singing/songwriting duo whose debut album Black Star Elephant has tapped into the heart of global culture by writing and performing songs that joyfully speak of life, love and identity that is reminiscent of The Police and Paul Simon’s Graceland.  Since their debut in 2010, Nico & Vinz have topped Scandinavian charts thanks to their extraordinary storytelling, riveting videos and electrifying performances including the 2013 Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo.  Their 2013 hit single “Am I Wrong” has already crossed 50 million global streams on Spotify, has a 20x-platinum certification in Scandanavia, won them an NRJ Award for “Song of the Year” and another Spelleman Award (Grammy equivalent) nomination for “Hit of the Year.”  The “song of the summer” and most Shazam’d song in the world was the #1 most added record at Top 40/mainstream format in its first-week of impacting US radio where it held the #1 spot in two formats (Hot AC and Top 40).

The GRAMMY winning San Franciscans Train are known for delivering memorable songs that capture the listener’s imagination. This particular talent has seen them achieve unprecedented radio and social media traction, with the eight-time GRAMMY nominees heralded as a standard bearer of riveting, roots-based pop around the world. Train has sold more than ten million albums worldwide, thirty million tracks worldwide, with numerous platinum/gold citations on their mantle, 3 Grammy Awards, 2 Billboard Music Awards and dozens of other honors and nominations. The band’s latest album and seventh studio effort, Bulletproof Picasso, was produced by Butch Walker. The disc has spawned two mega-hit singles, “Angel in Blue Jeans,” their 13th Top Ten radio hit and “Cadillac, Cadillac.” The former soared to the Top 10 of Triple A and Adult Top 40 radio in only a month, joining the band’s successful arsenal of other radio-embraced singles throughout their two-decade career. The song also has a badass Western-themed video starring Danny Trejo (Machete, Dusk Til Dawn) and Hannah Simone (New Girl) that has racked up over 4 million views.

After years of honing her signature style on hip-hop’s underground circuit, 4-time Grammy nominee Iggy Azalea burst onto the charts and emerged as the breakout story of 2014. Her smash hit, “Fancy” featuring Charli XCX, rocketed to #1, breaking airplay and Spotify records along the way. After an astounding 7 weeks at #1, Iggy Azalea made history on the Billboard Hot 100 as “Fancy” rewrote the record for the longest-leading No. 1 song by a female rapper. Iggy made chart history again as the first artist since The Beatles to rank at Nos. 1 and 2 simultaneously with their first two Hot 100 hits. “Fancy” has been unilaterally dubbed 2014’s “Song Of The Summer,” and has been covered by everyone from Saturday Night Live, to Jimmy Fallon, to Weird Al Yankovic. Iggy’s debut album The New Classic peaked at #1 on the Billboard Rap Album charts, a first for an international female artist. Iggy’s new single, “Black Widow” featuring Rita Ora, hit #1 at Top 40 and Rhythmic radio.

Bastille has been touring non-stop in support of its debut album, Bad Blood, which entered the U.K. albums chart at No. 1 and has sold over a million albums in the U.S. The band’s breakthrough hit “Pompeii” has now been certified four times Platinum by the RIAA in the U.S. It is certified Platinum (or multi-Platinum) in a total of seven countries, including the U.K., Australia, Canada and Italy. “Pompeii” is the most-streamed track of all time in the U.K. and one of the most-streamed tracks of 2014 on Spotify.

He was the Teen Choice Awards 2014 “Choice Single Male” winner and also received two additional nominations including “Choice Summer Song” and “Choice Summer Music Star: Male.” The pop star’s video for “Talk Dirty” also earned him two additional nominations at the MTV Music Video Awards for “Best Pop Video” and “Best Choreography.”

Grammy-nominated vocal quintet, Pentatonix, is celebrating the Christmas season with the #1 holiday album in America.  That’s Christmas To Me, currently the #2 album on Billboard’s Top 200 Chart (#1 Digital, #1 Holiday) has already been certified gold and has been sitting atop the Holiday Chart since its release 7 weeks ago (2012’s PTXmas is currently #5 on the Holiday Chart).  The group’s six videos in support of the holiday album –  “Dance of The Sugar Plum Fairy,” “White Winter Hymnal,” “Winter Wonderland /Don’t Worry Be Happy” featuring Tori Kelly, “Mary, Did You Know?,” “Silent Night” and their original song and title track, “That’s Christmas To Me” – have been viewed more than 35 million times.  Consisting of vocalists Scott Hoying, Kirstin Maldonado and Mitch Grassi, vocal bass Avi Kaplan and beatboxer Kevin “K.O.” Olusola, Pentatonix have also recently released PTX Vol. III which has already released 4 music videos, yielding more than 30 million views.  The group has eclipsed 7 million YouTube subscribers (more than both Avicii and Beyoncé), with more than 700 million cumulative views.  Their music video for “Daft Punk” has been viewed more than 100 million times and the medley earned the group their first Grammy nomination.

TAYLOR SWIFT TO RECEIVE FIRST EVER DICK CLARK AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE

TAYLOR SWIFT TO RECEIVE FIRST EVER
DICK CLARK AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE
AT THE 2014 AMERICAN MUSIC AWARDS®

New Award Will be the AMA’s Highest Honor

Swift Will Open the Show with the World Television Premiere of “Blank Space”

The Show Will Broadcast Live SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 23rd
(8:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT) on ABC

dick clark productions and ABC announced today that Taylor Swift will be presented with the inaugural “Dick Clark Award for Excellence” at the 2014 American Music Awards.  Swift will be recognized for her historical album sales as the only artist in history to have three albums – “Speak Now, “Red” and “1989” — each debuting with more than 1 million sold in their first week. This year, in its first week, “1989” sold 1.287 million copies, making it the highest selling album released in 2014. Swift is the first recipient of the Dick Clark Award for Excellence, given to an artist who achieves a groundbreaking feat or creates a landmark work.  It is to be bestowed upon someone whose spirit and excellence capture the visionary passion that Dick Clark himself incorporated into everything he did.

Clark, the creator of the 42-year-old American Music Awards, influenced popular music in America for six decades. He was known for maintaining a standard of excellence both in the shows he produced and in the talent that he showcased. Simultaneously “America’s Oldest Teenager” and the most trusted name in music, Clark was responsible for the first TV appearances of many superstars including Michael Jackson, Madonna and Prince. Taylor Swift, who also made her debut on a Dick Clark Production show, will be honored with this prestigious award with Clark’s wife, Kari, in the audience, along with a theatre full of stars who grew up on Clark’s programs. This promises to be one of the most significant moments in the rich history of the AMA’s.

“The first time Dick saw Taylor perform, he knew she was something special,” said Kari Clark, wife of the late Dick Clark.  “He would be thrilled to know she is the first artist to receive the Dick Clark Award for Excellence.”

“The American Music Awards most closely reflects Dick Clark’s philosophy of popular music. It provides a platform for the biggest music artists of the day, with the winners voted on by the fans,” said American Music Awards producer Larry Klein.  “Clark always said, ‘Music is the soundtrack of our lives,’ and no one’s recent music has provided a more meaningful soundtrack for the lives of music fans than Taylor Swift.”

Swift will also take to the stage to open the show with the world television premiere performance of her new single “Blank Space”.  She joins a line-up of must-see artists including 5 Seconds of Summer, Mary J. Blige, Garth Brooks, Charli XCX, Fergie, Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande, Imagine Dragons, Jessie J, Lil Wayne, Lorde, Magic!, Nicki Minaj, One Direction, Sam Smith, and the evening’s host, Pitbull.  Additional stars slated to present throughout the evening include Uzo Aduba, Jhene Aiko, Elizabeth Banks, Aloe Blacc, Lauren Cohan, Gavin DeGraw, Ansel Elgort, Jamie Foxx, Becky G, Brantley Gilbert, Danai Gurira, Lucy Hale, Ella Henderson, Julianne Hough, Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner, Kira Kazantsev, Heidi Klum, Mary Lambert, Rose McGowan, Danica McKellar, Pat Monahan, Olivia Munn, Kevin O’Leary, Pentatonix, Tracee Ellis Ross, Taylor Schilling and Meghan Trainor. The 2014 American Music Awards will broadcast live from the NOKIA Theatre L.A. LIVE on SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 23rd (8:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT) on ABC.  Additional performers and presenters will be announced soon.

Taylor Swift is the only artist in history to have three million-selling weeks (2010’s Speak Now, 2012’s RED and 2014’s 1989) and the only artist to have two singles hit No. 1 on Billboards HOT 100 Chart this year. Taylor is a global superstar and seven-time GRAMMY winner, and the youngest winner in history of the music industry’s highest honor, the GRAMMY Award for Album of the Year. She is the first artist since the Beatles (and the only female artist in history) to log six or more weeks at #1 in the U.S. with three consecutive studio albums. Taylor has an album on Rolling Stone’s prestigious The 50 Greatest Albums of All Time (by women) list, Time magazine has named her one the of the 100 Most Influential People in the world, and she is Billboard’s youngest-ever Woman of the Year and the only artist to have been awarded this honor twice. Taylor has career record sales in excess of 30 million albums and more than 80 million song downloads worldwide, and has had singles top both the pop and country radio charts around the globe. Taylor’s album RED, released two years ago, sold more than 1.2 million copies in the U.S. in its first week. The only other album to sell more than RED was her critically acclaimed fifth studio album, 1989, the highest selling release since 2002 and the only album to go platinum in 2014. 1989 sold almost 1.3 million albums release week topping Billboard’s Top 200 charts and iTunes’ sales charts in 95 countries on its release. 1989 has sold almost three million copies globally and tops Billboard Top 200 for a third week.  “Shake It Off,” the first single from 1989, topped Billboard’s Pop, HotAC and Hot 100 charts and has earned double Platinum-status by the RIAA for exceeding sales of two million downloads in the U.S.  Her current single “Blank Space,” immediately skyrocketed to the top of the Hot 100 and iTunes chart on its debut.

NOKIA Theatre L.A. LIVE on SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 23rd (8:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT) on ABC.  Additional performers and presenters will be announced soon.

“Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2015”
Begins Live at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC from New York’s Times Square

 

 

Charli XCX, One Direction and Meghan Trainor join the biggest bi-coastal celebration of the year with performances on New Year’s Eve from the Billboard Hollywood Party.  One Direction will headline with four performances throughout the night. Fergie returns for the ninth year to host the Billboard Hollywood Party and will treat the audience to a special performance. Jenny McCarthy returns for the fourth time live from Times Square. “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2015” will air on WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 31 beginning at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on ABC Television Network.

The bi-coastal celebration will include hours of special performances and reports on New Year’s celebrations from around the globe. Ryan Seacrest will lead the traditional countdown to midnight, and before the ball drops on New Year’s Eve, global music sensation Taylor Swift will perform live for over 1 million fans in Times Square. Gavin DeGraw and Lady Antebellum will perform live from Music City’s New Year’s Eve Bash on Broadway in downtown Nashville.

London-based singer and songwriter Charli XCX is quickly proving an unqualified phenomenon with her edgy, yet addictive approach. Since her first critically-acclaimed track, “Nuclear Seasons” in 2011, the 22 year-old, Charlotte Aitchison, co-wrote the #1 smash single with Iggy Azalea, “Fancy,” and penned last year’s double platinum summer it-song, “I Love It” recorded by Icona Pop, which she is featured on. Most recently, Charli XCX released the platinum selling “Boom Clap” single from the ‘The Fault in Our Stars: Music From the Motion Picture’ soundtrack, landing the #1 spot on Top 40 radio along, with a brand new song, “Break The Rules” from her forthcoming sophomore studio album, “SUCKER” arriving December 15th via Neon Gold/Atlantic Records.

Fergie’s newest single, “L.A.Love (la la),” marks her return to music following her 2006 solo album The Dutchess, which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200 and spent 94 weeks on the chart.  The album went on to sell 6.2 million copies and 28.5 million tracks worldwide and spawned three No. 1 hits on the Hot 100: “London Bridge,” “Glamorous,” and “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” as well as the Top 5 singles “Fergalicious” and “Clumsy”.  Since The Dutchess’ release, Fergie has also released two multi-Platinum albums, The E.N.D. and The Beginning, with The Black Eyed Peas– with whom she has sold 31 million albums and 58 million singles worldwide. The Black Eyed Peas’ videos have been viewed over 1.8 billion times on their YouTube channel.

Jenny McCarthy is an actress, comedian and New York Times best-selling author, known for her unique combination of intelligence, outrageousness, unpredictability and humor. She will return to television as an executive producer with her husband Donnie in “Donnie Loves Jenny,” an original series on the A&E Network, scheduled to premiere in January. McCarthy recently hit the airwaves with Dirty, Sexy, Funny with Jenny McCarthy, a new daily live morning radio show on SiriusXM, discussing relationships, pop culture and current events.

With a staggering 94 number ones and over 46 million records sold, in just four short years, One Direction have gone from energetic pop upstarts to international superstars. As the band’s song writing becomes more personal with each record, FOUR is set to be their most stunning yet. The album follows the global success of their huge sell out WHERE WE ARE stadium tour and the 3D film documentary THIS IS US. Fans also had the opportunity to relive this summers’ tour with the release of their second film WHERE WE ARE: THE CONCERT FILM, which broke records as the biggest ever Event Cinema audience across one weekend. The WHERE WE ARE: THE CONCERT FILM DVD will be released on Dec. 2. Add all this to their 3 billion YouTube views, 109 million combined Twitter followers and 33 million Facebook fans and it’s clear that Liam, Harry, Louis, Niall and Zayn genuinely are a worldwide phenomenon.

Meghan Trainor has quickly become one of the biggest breakout pop stars this year with her multi-platinum debut “All About That Bass,” which captured the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart for eight consecutive weeks. The positive body-image anthem also spent three weeks at No. 1 at Top 40 radio, eight weeks at No. 1 on the U.S. Shazam chart, and reached No. 1 globally on Spotify.  Follow up single “Lips Are Movin” is quickly following the footsteps of “All About That Bass” and is rocketing up the charts.  Trainor’s hotly anticipated full-length debut Title [Epic Records] (pre-order) hits shelves on January 13th just prior to the launch of her just-announced “THAT BASS” North American headlining tour.  Trainor is a 2014 American Music Award nominee for “New Artist of the Year” and is also up for two People’s Choice awards and LOGO a New Next Now award.

Fergie recently announced that she has been in the studio working on the follow-up to her 2006 solo album The Dutchess, which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200 and spent 94 weeks on the chart.  The album went on to sell 6.2 million copies and 28.5 million tracks worldwide and spawned three No. 1 hits on the Hot 100: “London Bridge,” “Glamorous,” and “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” as well as the Top 5 singles “Fergalicious” and “Clumsy”.  Since The Dutchess’ release, Fergie has also released two multi-Platinum albums, The E.N.D. and The Beginning, with The Black Eyed Peas– with whom she has sold 31 million albums and 58 million singles worldwide. The Black Eyed Peas’ videos have been viewed over 1.8 billion times on their YouTube channel.

New Zealand native and multiplatinum GRAMMY® Award-winning recording artist Lorde splashed on to the scene last year with her debut single “Royals,” which became an international hit landing her atop the Billboard Hot 100 and made her the youngest solo artist to achieve a U.S. number one since 1987, as well as holding the longest standing #1 for any female artist in the Billboard Alternative Chart history.   In September 2013, following her single’s success, Lorde released her debut studio album PURE HEROINE with Lava/Republic Records. The record sky-rocketed on the charts and has sold more than 1.5 million records to date.  Other singles from the album include “Tennis Court” and “Team” which both became top-ten worldwide hits.  On September 29th, Lorde released “Yellow Flicker Beat” the first single from the soundtrack of the greatly anticipated film THE HUNGER GAMES:  MOCKINGJAY – PART 1.  Upon impacting airwaves, the song made history by becoming the #1 Most Added song at Alternative Radio and set a new record for “Most Adds on a Female Artist” in Mediabase History.  Not only is “Yellow Flicker Beat” the #1 iTunes Soundtrack Song currently, it entered the Top 10 at Alternative Radio in just 3 short weeks.

One Direction has gone from energetic pop upstarts to international superstars. As the band’s song writing becomes more personal with each record, FOUR is set to be their most stunning and evolved yet. The album follows the global success of their huge sell out WHERE WE ARE stadium tour and the 3-D film documentary THIS IS US. Fans also had the opportunity to relive this summers’ tour with the release of their second film WHERE WE ARE: THE CONCERT FILM, which broke records as the largest audience across one weekend ever seen by Event Cinema theatres. The WHERE WE ARE: THE CONCERT FILM DVD will be released on December 2. Add all this to their 3 billion YouTube views, 109 million combined Twitter followers and 33 million Facebook fans and it’s clear that Liam, Harry, Louis, Niall and Zayn genuinely are a worldwide phenomenon. FOUR will be released globally on November 17, 2014 via Syco/Columbia Records and includes the lead single “Steal My Girl.”

The opportunity for these students is part of a growing partnership between the Las Vegas Academy of the Arts (LVA), a public arts magnet school within the Clark County School District, and the Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower. Every student who will perform in Moreno’s show plans to pursue a career in music.

“We have been so impressed by the talent and dedication of the Las Vegas Academy students,” said Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower general manager Paul Hobson. “We have the ability at Stratosphere to help these students in their journey to become professional musicians and singers and we are pleased to offer this opportunity.”

The special Frankie Moreno Live at Stratosphere performances on selected Wednesday nights begin this month, and will include LVA vocalists, piano and guitar players. In addition to performing one of their songs before a live audience in the Stratosphere Theater, some of the students may join Moreno’s band for additional songs as part of the show. Students scheduled to appear include Jack Higgins, age 18, Vocalist/Guitar; Brittany McKay, age 18, Vocalist; John Lloyd, age 18, Guitar; and Maejoy Dotdot, age 16, Vocalist/Ukelele.

“These students are unbelievably talented,” said Moreno. “Working with them has been a great experience and I am thrilled to provide them a chance to perform on a Las Vegas Strip stage and showcase their skills to the world.”

In May, Moreno and his brothers, Ricky and Tony Moreno, taught a series of Master Classes offering LVA students instruction in song writing, as well as insight into the music business. The Moreno brothers have co-written songs, which are performed by Frankie Moreno, as well as a number of diverse artists including One Direction, Air Supply and Joshua Bell.

Frankie Moreno performs with his 10-piece band Wednesday through Saturday at 8 p.m. Guests aged 13 to 18 year olds are admitted if they attend with a parent or adult guardian.

Tickets for all ages are $39.99. Locals receive a 25% discount and Stratosphere hotel guests a 50% discount.
