Galloway, who lost his left leg and left arm while serving second a tour of Operation Iraqi Freedom, danced the cha cha with partner Sharna Burgess to OneRepublic's “I Lived." When he was done dancing, there wasn't a dry eye in the audience. Check out the video here! »

Sam Hunt has arrived.
"It was one of those titles that's obviously a play on words and those historically have been a big part of country music," Hunt tells ETonline in this week's installment of Behind the Hit. "The bad thing about those titles is that most of them have been written."

While relaxing on his couch one night scanning emails on his phone, Hunt stumbled across a song called "Leave the Light On." At a quick glance, he mistakenly substituted "Light" with "Night."
"I thought immediately, 'How has nobody written that? I wish I had found this idea before they wrote it, '" he recalls. "As I looked a little closer, it was actually »
Come on, Zedd, get in there! But the adorable DJ just watches Selena Gomez get her groove on from afar in a variety of cleavage-baring outfits for most of his brand-new music video for "I Want You to Know," which popped up Tuesday. While there's every likelihood that they're just friends, Zedd and Selena set hearts afire and had fans asking "Justin who?" after it was first revealed that they were collaborating together--and now here's more fruit from that collaboration! "I Want You to Know," co-written by Zedd, OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder and KDrew, dropped last month, but now we've got this trippy video, featuring a lot of kaleidoscopic imagery, Selena »
Madonna's latest album, Rebel Heart, is a triumph. First, there's the rough release timeline. Hackers leaked it. Then they leaked some more of it. Then she released parts of it herself in December, then again in February, before officially dropping the full record Tuesday. And do we even have to mention #CapeGate? But the pop icon's 13th (!) album in 32 years is worth the wait. Rebel Heart accomplishes what her last two efforts, Mdna (2012) and Hard Candy (2008), couldn't: She brings the innovation while also paying just enough homage to her best moments. Add in sex, sacrilege, genuinely personal lyrics and some killer hooks, »

The New Directions’ past, present and future collide in Glee‘s two-hour series finale, which flashes back to 2009 before jumping ahead to reveal what’s in store for Rachel and the gang.
Fox has released a batch of stills from the full-night event (March 20, 8/7c), giving us our first official look at the gleeks’ final curtain call.
Highlights from the flashback episode, appropriately titled “2009,” include Rachel and Kurt “meeting” for the first time, the return of Puck’s mohawk and, of course, not-gay Karofsky.
The first No. 1 single is a celebrated milestone for any artist, but for Frankie Ballard, the second one is even sweeter.
"It's so exciting to have your first No. 1 song and you're like, 'Wow,' I just can't believe this is actually happening,' [but] there's a little voice in the back of your head that's like, 'What if this is the only time I'm ever going to get to experience this?'"
After opening for acts like Kenny Chesney and Lady Antebellum, Ballard broke out on country radio with "Helluva Life" in 2014. The song became his first bona fide hit single and went all the way to No. 1 on the country charts. When "Sunshine & Whiskey" followed suit months later, Ballard breathed a huge sigh of relief.
"I'm not a one hit wonder! God!" he exclaims in ETonline's Behind the Hit, playfully burying »
The Voice UK kicked off its all-important battles with a two-hour spectacular tonight, as 24 acts got paired up for 12 bouts in the ring. As Sir Tom Jones pointed out, "no biting" and "no kicking" was allowed - instead it was (surprise!) all about the voice.
With each coach being granted two steals this series, it was all to play for, all bets were off and it was all going down to the wire. Right, that's enough sporting phrases - let's get the ball rolling! (Sorry.)
Battle #1: Joyful Soundz vs Newtion Matthews
Song: 'Shout' - The Isley Brothers
What happened in rehearsals? This is one of the funniest battle rehearsals we have ever seen, ever. Will was babbling about how 'Shout' is one of his favourite songs "on the entire planet' ("Even if I was to take a spaceship out of space it would still be my favourite »
Like a flatline that finally goes “bloop,” American Idol‘s Top 12 Girls telecast sprang to life just when I was about to give up, start folding laundry and write an intro to this recap along the lines of “Season 14 officially belongs to the dudes.”
Hail Sarina-Joi! Hail Jax! Hail Tyanna! (And medium tip-a-hat to Maddie!)
Also: Why do the show’s producers insist on front-loading the telecast with weak links — thereby encouraging viewers to check their DVRs and determine whether they merely dreamed that CBS had launched NCIS: Bangor.

The now-20-year-old’s debut single "God Made Girls" has had a polarizing impact on country music since its June 2014 release. The Top 20 track has been certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America, selling more than 500,000 units, but not without stirring up a bit of controversy in the process.
"It's just a sweet song about the connection between guys and girls," RaeLynn (real name: Rachael Lynn Woodward) tells ETonline in this week's installment of Behind the Hit.
"Somebody's gotta make him get dressed up, give him a reason to wash that truck. Somebody's gotta teach him how to dance, so God made girls," RaeLynn croons on the single, which has been regarded by some as anti-feminist. The song inspired a sharply-worded blog post on Jezebel, which declared »
The blind auditions might be over on The Voice UK, but there is still so much to come. There's no hanging about - we're straight into the battle rounds on Saturday as the first batch of contestants attempt to outshine their partners.
It's not that all is lost if they don't win their battle - the coaches each have not one, but two steals this series - but that doesn't mean the pressure is off! Read on to find out who you'll see battling this weekend - and what they'll be singing (complete with sneaky pictures of the battles themselves)...
Joyful Soundz vs Newtion Matthews
Song: 'Shout' - Isley Brothers
Remind me who they are! Joyful Soundz - aka Patrick and Simone - are friends from church from Luton who just want to bring a little joy to the world! Newtion, 30, previously had a record deal with Warner »
Last January, Ella Henderson rang in a milestone for the ages. Miles from home, the UK native celebrated her 18th birthday with hit-maker Ryan Tedder in his Denver, Colo., home studio, recording what would become Henderson's debut single "Ghost."
Pics: How the Stars Celebrated Grammy Weekend
"It was just a very surreal time," Henderson tells ETonline in our latest installment of "Behind the Hit." The new series, which last week highlighted Hunter Hayes, asks artists to reflect on how their biggest songs came to life and what it’s meant for their careers.
Henderson caught the eye of Simon Cowell during a stint on The X Factor's ninth UK season in 2012. Viewers and judges were shocked when Henderson was sent home in sixth place, but Cowell still scooped up the talented singer-songwriter and signed her to a deal with his Syco label.

Beyonce is full of surprises! Queen B gave a surprise performance on Tuesday night for Stevie Wonder's Grammy tribute at Nokia Theatre at L.A. Live, where she rocked the stage in a sexy, sequined mini. The "Flawless" singer was hotter than ever in the Michael Costello dress and fishnets, as she kicked off the night with a performance of "Fingertips Pt.2". Half-way through the set, the 33-year-old shocked the crowd again when she brought out Ed Sheeran and Gary Clark Jr. to accompany her onstage! The "Thinking Out Loud" crooner was just as excited to be performing with the diva and took to Instagram after the show to share a snap from the night.

The flirtation between Selena Gomez and DJ Zedd keeps heating up!
The 22-year-old "The Heart What It Wants" singer announced her highly anticipated collaboration with the 25-year-old producer/DJ on Monday, posting this cute photo of her wrapping her arms him on Instagram. She even went so far as to call him the Harry to her Sally, referencing the beloved on-screen couple in Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan's classic 1989 rom-com When Harry Met Sally.
"Harry to my Sally. #Feb22 #Iwytk," she initially captioned the pic, before curiously deleting the When Harry Met Sally reference.

"Iwytk" presumably is the abbreviation for their new song together, which is reportedly called "I Want You to Know." It's set to drop on Feb. 22.

Manuel here trying to turn this wet and slushy frown upside down with some help from the movies.
As Nat noted this weekend, that might be one of the better responses to an alleged Oscar snub in recent memory but as with all "snubs," we have the films and boy has Xavier Dolan's Mommy seared itself into my brain. And so I'm using it today to help me brave this icy, cold, rainy weather we're having in the North East today (anyone buried under lots of snow?)
One of the best scenes in Dolan's film is set to Céline Dion's "On Ne Change Pas" and that song has been in constant rotation on my Spotify ever since (actually all of the songs from that film have!) Dolan has quite the gift for pairing radio-stamped hits with transgressively appealing scenes that don't just work as stylistic juxtapositions but as helpful characterizations. »

A glittering purple unicorn landed smack in the middle of American Idol‘s Season 14 New Orleans audition stop — which in no way suggests that the show’s producers surprised us with a special return appearance by Nicki Minaj at the judges’ table. (People genuinely like Keith Urban, after all — they don’t want to see him break out into a Ptsd-induced panic attack.)
Rather, I’m talking about the Idoloonie Nation getting the all-too-rare opportunity to see a 2-to-1 vote against sending a contestant to Hollywood.
Don’t cry for 28-year-old Sarah Quintana, though. Sure, Keith was the only one »
Kelly Clarkson is back in full force!
America's very first Idol released her latest single on Monday, and it's Clarkson at her very best. "Heartbeat Song" is a power-house love anthem that begs to be danced to – listen below.
Photos: Celebs and Their Cute Tots
"It was like one of the first [songs] I actually chose to record," Clarkson told Ryan Seacrest on his Monday morning radio show. "My music definitely reflects how I'm feeling in my life. And so, I liked that it was still an anthem, and fun, and still had a little pop to it. But it was sweet … It's pretty much one of the most pop ones on the album. You know, full force for the fans. They love those anthems from me."
In December, Global Music Rights (Gmr)--a startup founded by powerful music manager Irving Azoff--threatened a billion-dollar lawsuit against Google, which it claims does not have the proper licenses to distribute songs from Gmr clients. The severity of the threat was a bit unclear at the time, but according to a new report, Google should be taking Gmr's bluster very seriously. In an article he wrote for Digital Music News, music industry attorney Steve Gordon has explained how the concept of "interim" licenses could spell trouble in Mountain View.
Here's a quick recap of Gmr's argument: In 2014, the startup signed notable artists like Pharrell Williams and Ryan Tedder among its first clients. Shortly after Google launched its YouTube Music Key service, Azoff lashed out, claiming Google had not secured sufficient licenses for his clients' songs. Google's counterargument to that claim seems to hinge on the fact that it previously »
