During the 56th annual Grammy Awards, Macklemore, Ryan Lewis and Mary Lambert performed "Same Love," eventually joined by Madonna, turning it into a mash-up with "Open Your Heart," while Queen Latifah performed a wedding ceremony for 34 same-sex couples on stage.

All together now: awwwww.Urban also took to the stage for the 2014 Grammys, when earlier in the night he performed new song "Cop Car," the third single off his 2014 album "Fuse," with Gary Clark Jr. Video of that performance below.... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2014/01/american-idols-keith-urban-cries-over-grammys-gay-marriage-ceremony.html

After having a succession of two-hour episodes so far, Thursday night saw American Idol trimmed down to one hour. And it was very noticeable -- in the sense that there wasn't as much time to showcase all the great singers like they've been able to up until now. And even though the good singers were heavily featured as usual, most of those we did see didn't blow me away. I'm not sure if that's because it was only one hour or because the talent level just wasn't on the same level in Atlanta as in the previous cities.  Read More... //www.buddytv.com/articles/american-idol/videos-american-idol-atlanta-a-52407.aspx

Not many American Idol contestants rock pink streaks in their hair, but the 2014 hopeful Jess Meuse did so with panache. But she didn't even need a dye job to stand out in the judges' ears. Jess sang an original song called "Blue-Eyed Lie" — and J.Lo, Harry, and Keith dug her showmanship. Harry even said that Jess seemed like the low-maintenance person who would be found hanging with a band instead of in her dressing room, but Jess contended that she was "a solo, acoustic act."
