Bobby Moynihan Reveals What Drunk Uncle Would Say About SNL Host Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga is going to be the host and musical guest on tonight’s Saturday Night Live and we went behind-the-scenes and spoke to castmember Bobby Moynihan about what we can possibly expect from the unpredictable pop star. “She’s a pro!” Moynihan gushed to Jim Shearer. He explained that she’s been acing the read-throughs. ”She’s not as crazy as everyone…as she makes herself seem to be.” Moynihan might have nothing but professional respect and praise for Lady Gaga, but what would his famous character, Drunk Uncle, say about her? “I think he would just stare and be confused,” Moynihan laughed before launching into the character. “Uh, you know, when I was a kid, people, people were just wore regular clothes and t-shirts and they didn’t walk around in helicopter dresses.” Will Drunk Uncle face off with Lady Gaga tonight? We’ll have to tune in tonight to find out.

MTV, Cmt and VH1 return to all-music roots on Independence Day

After years of so many reality shows and more scripted series, the music stations are returning to what made them vital on Independence Day.

They will feature videos throughout the day, beginning at 6 a.m. Emerging artists will get a showcase in the stations' inaugural "Music Independence Day" and be shown with famous artists.

Starting Wednesday, June 12 emerging artists can try to get onto the stations by claiming a page on the Artist Platform -- for MTV, for Cmt, or for VH1.

Those artists will have their music and videos considered for MTV, Cmt and VH1. Even those who don't get picked, will be able to drive audiences to their pages via social networks and #MusicIndependenceDay, where they can invite listeners to purchase music, leave tips or otherwise show their support.

"We want to let fans discover and really love up musicians, give a tip, buy them a beer or

After Wednesday night's "American Idol" season 11 premiere, you've gotten a glimpse at the talent pool and spotted some potential superstars-in-the-making. But what about the last 10 seasons of singers?

We already looked back at standouts from "Idol" seasons one through five, and now we're walking down memory lane to see what the alumni from seasons six through 10 have going on:

Season Six

The One You Know: Winner Jordin Sparks is making her big-screen debut this August with TriStar's remake of the '76 Supremes-inspired movie "Sparkle," co-starring the one and only Whitney Houston. Music-wise, Sparks showed off a new adult image in 2011 with "I Am Woman" and provided background vocals for Demi Lovato's anthem "Skyspcraper." Her third album is still Tba,

Demi Lovato To Keanu Reeves: 10 Headbangin’ Celebs On National Metal Day

In case you didn’t realize, VH1 Classic has declared today, 11/11/11, National Metal Day. We’re sure we’re not the only ones to blast Mastodon in our headphones while everyone assumes we’re typing away to the sweet sounds of Britney Spears. Not every metalhead wears leather pants, T-shirts and a scowl, right? Over the years, several surprising celebs have come out of the closet as fans of the hard stuff — and not just when those Iron Maiden shirts were really popular at Hot Topic.

Years ago, MTV discovered that Demi Lovato was a serious fan of black metallers Dimmu Borgir among other groups we’re sure never appeared on Radio Disney. Kat Dennings likes to tweet about knitting while listening to metal. This 10-minute video of a tipsy Kelly Clarkson rocking out onstage at a Metal Skool show in 2006 is truly endearing. And only one celeb has actually toured with Ozzfest — Ms.

Nick Jonas Came To Our Job And Sang For Us

On Wednesday (June 8), Nick Jonas showed up on my turf here at the MTV News offices to shed some light on his latest venture, working with Quaker Chewy Superstar Search to find the next big thing. While here, he also chatted with VH1's Jim Shearer during a live stream Q&A session before performing three tracks off his 2010 solo album.

The acoustic set really showed another side of Nick. He was lighthearted, cracked some jokes and charmed the room with his soulful, acoustic pop. A true testament to his musicianship and star power, he managed to turn some non-believers (we know you're out there!) into fans.

What did he dazzle them with? "Rose Garden," a sad track about how hard life can be; "Who I Am," a midtempo tune on which Nick confesses his need to find love; and "Last Time Around," a funky track about remembering a certain love in your life.

"120 Minutes," two of the most beloved hours in alternative-rock history, is returning to the airwaves. MTV2 will air a brand-new monthly version of the trailblazing music program with a weekly online counterpart dubbed "120 Seconds" on MTV Hive. Both will be hosted by Matt Pinfield, the walking musical encyclopedia and industry veteran whose original "120 Minutes" run made his name synonymous with the best of college rock, indie rock and everything else under the umbrella of "alternative."

"I'm so excited that '120' is coming back," Pinfield told MTV News. "It's been so influential in so many people's lives. Musicians, music fans, actors — so many people have told me the show was pivotal and life-changing for them."

Countdown To Cancun: One Blogger’s Journey To Mexico

It’s not every day that I receive the following call: “Hey Michelle, want to go to Cancun on a party plane with the Goo Goo Dolls and VH1 Top 20?” After a couple of clicks on my trusty “Common Sense Abacus,” my calculations said “Duh.” Which is how I found myself at a very festive Lax terminal for Virgin America’s inaugural flight to Cancun, Mexico. Oh, look, a totally unposed photo! Yes, I wore my finest Three’s Company kimono-sleeved top for the occasion. The terminal was bustling. VH1 Top 20 was in the midst of filming (the episode premieres this Saturday at 9 Am Est – watch it), and everyone was uh-super jazzed. Mainly because they were handing out free chorizo by the gate. But seeing as it was 9 am, I was in the mood for something less “sausage party-ish.” And I found my answer, in the form of the Terminator 5 Of Pancake Contraptions: Self.

  • IFC
"The Grid" is IFC's new series about what's next in movies, gadgets, viral videos, games, and more. Each Thursday, IFC News dives into our archives to bring you more on this week's cool stuff. Here's what going on this week in "The Grid":

-Alonso Duralde told you about "I'm Not There," the new (maybe) documentary about actor Joaquin Phoenix, and other films that blur the line between reality and fantasy. Back in 2008, The IFC News Podcast 'rapped' up Phoenix's career in a retrospective podcast, and this week Matt Singer examined some theories about the nature of the film. We've also got a podcast all about movies that play at the blurry line between fiction and non-fiction like Andy Kaufman's "I'm From Hollywood." We called 'em "docsploitation."

Video: Lars Ulrich Loves Indie Film

  • IFC
Apropos of nothing in particular, here's Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich talking with IFC's music blogger Jim Shearer about indie film, of which he's a huge fan, his friendship with Thomas Vinterberg and why there's still hope for low-budget cinema. For the record, he's thinks "Man on Wire" is "one of the best documentaries I've seen in years," he borrows Academy screeners from friends, he's seen "Control" four times and he believes that '07 was the best year for independent film.
