Oh boy, it has been awhile…

The last time Taylor Swift performed at a concert was well over eight months ago in Houston at the pre-Superbowl concert. In August, she shocked the world with a surprise comeback track Look What You Made Me Do and ...Ready For It. We surely were not ready for that!

Next month, Taylor will release her comeback album Reputation. Even though she has not revealed any headline tour for the upcoming album, she has announced her participation in a couple of the Christmas shows happening in the USA later this year. 

Before she returns to the stage, let us look back at 5 things we missed about her performing live.

 

1.     Countless Outfit Changes – She just looks stunning in every outfit she puts in, HOW!

 

2.     Insane Stage Set Ups – From flying above the audience to probably the biggest elevated platform ever

 

3.     Amazing Crowds – The crowds just seem to get larger and larger every tour

 

4.     Surprise Guests – During her 1989 tour, Taylor invited special guests to join her on stage each night

 

5.     Of Course, Her Vocals!! – Need we say more?

 

 

We are very excited for what’s to come! Are you?

Seriously, this is a whole new level.

Miley Cyrus has certainly made her mark in the music scene since her early days in the industry as Hannah Montana. From her hits constantly dominating the charts to her controversial antics at award shows, we can confidently say that Cyrus is a notable household name.

Since her comeback with Malibu, Cyrus has been making many appearances on talk shows to promote her latest body of work and to advocate for the many organisations that she has been partnering with to help make the world a better place.

Her appearance on Carpool Karaoke with James Corden is easily said to be one of the better episodes. Cyrus and Corden basically had loads of fun by doing weird things like trying to cry on command, licking stamps and talking about the events happening in the pop star's life thus far.

Not only did Cyrus belt her old classics and newer songs, she also revealed the biggest change in her life post-2013 VMAs. That incident made her realise that she has a big influence on the media, so instead of doing something for the sake of being controversial, she has been using her platform to be an activist for the many issues that she's concerned about.

It is one thing to sing well and it is another to harmonise to your own voice. Cyrus definitely showed everyone that she SLAYS the music game for a reason and that is because of her flawless vocals and the unique tonality of her voice. Check out her Carpool Karaoke here!

It has been 4 years since the release of Eminem's The Marshall Mathers LP 2, but a new era might be dawning upon us soon.

According to HITS Daily Double, Eminem's 8th major label studio album will be out on Nov. 17. While the information is still filed under rumor category, HITS Daily Double's past track record for revealing album release dates is not something to be ignored. In addition to the report, Eminem also has an anticipated collaboration with P!nk, slated for release when her album Beautiful Trauma drops on 13th October 2017.

On The Marshall Mathers LP 2, the album was viewed as an artistic let-down by many for its clumsy attempts to marry current pop trends (Trap, EDM) with the rapper's craft. Given his repertoire, people will naturally have high standards for his forthcoming album and we're curious to see how Eminem attempts to keep his material fresh sounding in the current pop landscape of 2017. 

Let's just pray that the source isn't messing around with us!

Since the release of their debut album All We Know Is Falling in 2005, Paramore have gone through a  great dealchanges with members leaving and rejoining.

Over the past 12 years, the band have experimented with an array of sounds and genres. Despite revamping themselves with each album release, Paramore somehow still manages to maintain a large and steady fanbase that other bands could only dream of.

One core reason for that? Their amazing live shows.

As Paramore's sound evolve from emo to 80's pop, they never once compromised on their onstage performances. Here are 5 performances that follows their incredible evolution over the years:

 

1. Pressure (2006)

Even from their humble beginnings, Hayley's vocals were already thriving. It's hard to believe that she was only 18 in this video!

 

2. Crushcrushcrush (2008)

By the release of their second album, Riot, Paramore was already the face of pop-punk and Hayley proved herself to be one of the most charismatic frontwomen of all time.

 

3. Brick By Boring Brick (2010)

While musicians tend to butcher their TV performances, Paramore was no less than on point during their appearance as musical guests on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

 

4. Last Hope (2014)

Admittedly, I never really paid much attention to Paramore until I came across this outstanding performance of Last Hope that blew me away. I have been a huge fan ever since!

 

5. Hard Times, 26, Fake Happy (2017)

In the band's recent NPR Tiny Desk Concert, it's clear to see the ones who does the best renditions of Paramore's songs are... none other than Paramore themselves. Their tropical-esque version of Fake Happy is refreshing and makes us Real Happy!
