It's been the year of Bruno Mars: it's pretty much impossible to have turned on a pop radio station in 2013 and not hear one of the retro-soul singer's infectious tunes, so it's not surprising that Billboard magazine has named him the 2013 Billboard Artist of the Year.
Mars' No. 1 album "Unorthodox Jukebox" enjoyed an impressive 10-month run on the Billboard 200 chart, spawned three top 10 singles -- "Locked Out of Heaven," "When I Was Your Man," "Treasure" -- and the sexy new jam "Gorilla."
You also saw him at practically every award show this year, either winning accolades, performing, or both. He took home one MTV Ema, two VMAs and two Teen Choice Awards, among others. In honor of Mars' new title, here is a roundup of some of his most memorable performances from the aforementioned award shows. (Bonus: they're all delightfully upbeat and perfectly appropriate to watch while you get »

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis opened the night their smash hit Thrift Shop, but it was their song Same Love that got a nod for Song of the Year.
Taylor Swift performed via satellite from Sydney, Australia, while her Red album was announced as a contender for Album of the Year.
Perhaps the most interesting collaboration of the night came when Keith Urban and Miguel performed Bill Withers' classic Ain't No Sunshine. The R&B crooner and country superstar traded off lyrics for a show-stopping ballad.

Ouch! Don’t expect a Kanye and Bruno collaboration any time soon. The outspoken rapper publicly dissed the ‘Locked Out of Heaven’ singer for selling out and stealing all the ‘motherf***ing awards’ at the 2013 MTV VMAs.
Kanye West‘s love-hate relationship with the MTV Video Music Awards took over during his Brooklyn, NY show on Nov. 20. Ye dissed the awards show in a 10-minute hate-filled rant — and directed most of his anger at fellow artist Bruno Mars, 28. Read on to find out more and to watch Kanye’s latest rant.
Has Kanye finally made his peace with the VMAs? Not quite. Ye gave fans more than just his “genius” music at his Brooklyn show. He treated them to a lengthy rant about his latest beef with the award show, »

With the Mirrorball trophy so tantalizingly close that our five remaining celebs (yes, even Bill Engvall) must be clearing mantelpieces in their dreams, Semi-Finals Night on Dancing With the Stars showcased two original dances (to two very different versions of the same song) along with what’s become something of a staple of Season 17 – the guest judge!
Week 10 brought us former pro, occasional bad boy and unflinching heartthrob Maksim Chmerkovskiy – notorious for his own cranky past run-ins with judges – who paddled up right next to former adversaries Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli and Len Goodman.

We already know Miss Dynamix are in the sing-off (#prayformissdynamix) after coming bottom in the Flash Vote, but who will join them and face being unceremoniously thrown out into that storm everyone's talking about?
Well, probably not Sam Bailey according to you lot, but given there were more flops than blockbusters last night (we're looking at you, Callahan), we'd say quite a few of them should be practising their losing speech right now.

With that reported $5 million on the table to start her own website, why doesn't Nikki Finke just do it already? Her Twitter rants against Penske Media and its CEO, Jay Penske, continued today with claims that she had been locked out of Deadline Hollywood. She even tweeted a post with the headline: Nikki Finke Is Locked Out Of Deadline, in which she wrote: I have been locked out of the Deadline Hollywood site after founding it 7 1/2 years ago. So don’t expect any more box office. I also just tried to post an exclusive involving Jeff Robinov and Sony Pictures and Gk Films’ Graham King and Dune Capital Management Steve Mnuchin but only the alert went through. What an extremely sad day. Here's the entire tweet cycle: »

‘The X Factor’ continued on tonight with more of the “Four Chair Challenge” — and the competition is really heating up as more contestants are being given the boot! Did you agree with the judge’s choices? Let us know!
The “Four Chair Challenge” is very similar to musical chairs — except way more excruciating and emotional. It pained us every time someone got kicked out of their seat, but there are now officially four gals going to the live shows in Demi Lovato‘s Girls group! Do you agree with the choices, HollywoodLifers?
Who Advanced On The ‘X Factor?’
The competition was stiff in the Girls group, consisting of ladies who can mostly belt it out!
Khaya Cohen, 15, sang “Locked Out Of Heaven,” — and seriously, what is it with contestants slowing down songs lately? Unless it’s a perfect arrangement with the right tone, it’s a risky bet — but she made it! »

You could call Simon Cowell cruel for introducing the “Four-Chair Challenge” to Season 3 of The X Factor, and you wouldn’t be wrong. Like a cat who toys with semi-conscious chipmunks on his owner’s doorstep, the British crankypants spent an hour tonight slowly snuffing out the hopes and dreams of more than half of the 10 teenage girls left in the competition.
Then again, not all chipmunks are meant to sing — certainly not the one in a crayon-red wig whose screeching rendition of the disco classic “Blame It on the Boogie” made Kelly Rowland’s eyes pop comically — like Spongebob »

‘The X Factor’ has gotten its four groups together, so now the contestants can show us what they’ve really got! Did you agree with the judges’ choices? Let us know!
The first “Four-Chair Challenge” has begun, and the competition has been narrowed — so put your claws away, Simon Cowell! Ten hopefuls performed, with four seats for each group, and the judges could swap people in and out as they pleased! Read on to find out HollywoodLife.com‘s thoughts on the performances!
Kelly Rowland’s Over 25 Group
Kelly Rowland is in charge of the over 25 group, which started the night. Victoria Carriger, the 41-year old raspy-voiced mom, kicked it off with “To Make You Feel My Love.” It was half Norah Jones-y, half hungover-sounding. But Kelly said yes!
Kristine Mirelle, 27, then sang a haunting, jazz cafe rendition of “Oops I Did It Again.” I agreed with Simon »

She was just a girl, standing in front of a reality singing competition panel, asking them to love* her.
Unfortunately, said girl (though American) was not Julia Roberts, the boy member of said panel (though British) was not Hugh Grant, and the story wasn’t a Hollywood romcom with a guaranteed happy ending.
Nope, this was The X Factor‘s controversial new “Four Chair Challenge.” And for poor, desperate Allison Davis — and six other contestants like her — the literal and proverbial chair got pulled out from under her “Over 25″ ass, leaving her to land with a thud on a hard bed of crumbled, »

We've narrowed it down to the Top 40 on "The X Factor." Now they will each perform for the judges in the four-chair challenge, which is where the mentors will systematically narrow their 10 acts down to four.
The way it works is each mentor has four chairs to fill and they fill them as they go along, but once they are full, in order to add another act, they must eliminate one. It's not like this is anything new on a singing competition show (narrowing from a few dozen to a pseudo-Top 10) but this format should prove quite dramatic.
The Over 25s
Victoria Carriger is up first, she's the separated mom of eight children. She sings "To Make You Feel My Love" with a very coffeehouse-y vibe. She »
It's official: Bruno Mars will play the Pepsi Super Bowl Xlviii Halftime Show on Feb. 2, 2014. Reports of the "Locked Out Of Heaven" singer's booking started circulating when the Los Angeles Times broke the news Friday, and were confirmed throughout the weekend. Mars himself made the announcement in Times Square around 12:30 Et Sunday on Fox NFL Sunday, alongside co-hosts Curt Menefee and Terry Bradshaw and analysts Howie Long, Jimmy Johnson, Michael Strahan and Jay Glazer.
