Tonight the 25th annual Kids Choice Awards aired on Nickelodeon. Forget about the Oscars and Emmys, growing up this was always my favorite awards shows. There were a ton of celebrities in attendance tonight including Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, Taylor Lautner, Justin Bieber, Miranda Cosgrove and Michelle Obama. Will Smith did a fabulous job playing host for the award show. Katy Perry and One Direction both took to the stage throughout the night for amazing performances of their hit songs "Part of Me" and "What Makes You Beautiful". What's the Kids Choice Awards without slime?! Chris Colfer, the Biebs, and Halle Berry were among the many stars who got to experience what it's like to be slimed. The night ended with a surprise appearance by Justin Bieber to accept his award for favorite male singer. He was so adorable making his way through the crowd, all while hugging little kids plunging themselves at him. Oh Biebs, you have such swag. Not only that, but did you see what he was wearing? I think he figured out the key on how to dye leather because we're just a little bit in love with the shade of his green leather jacket. Did you watch tonight? What was your favorite part of the night? Check out the full list of winners below:
He may be a millionaire already but Nick Jonas joined the rest of the country and bought himself a lottery ticket. The jackpot was a record 656 million dollars and will be split among three winners. I doubt they're suffering from having to share the huge prize. What would you do with the money if you won?
This Glee hiatus is coming to an end soon. That means it's time for some Glee song spoilers. The episode, titled Big Brother, will introduce fans to Blaine's older brother Cooper. Rumor has it, Blaine won't be that thrilled he's back in town. More importantly, we'll learn what happened to Quinn. Here are the song spoilers for the episode.

Wow, American Idol eliminated one more contestant last night, leaving eight finalists to battle for the title. Time is surely flying by. Doesn't it feel like the judges were just beginning their rounds of auditions? I think this is one of the first years though that I honestly don't have a favorite. There's a couple really standout contestants for me though. Phillip Phillips and Colton Dixon are both so great this season (and they are definitely easy on the eyes which is always a plus!). I have to admit I was a bit bummed when Heejun Han left last night. While I might not have voted for him, he was such a character with all his funny jokes. There's no doubt he made the show entertaining. Also, I guess this means we won't have any more bromance moments between him and Phillip Phillips to look forward to. Honestly, who doesn't love a good bromance?! Le sigh. How could I forget, we even got to catch a glimpse of the new Idol mansion in last night's episode. They are definitely living the life of luxury, that place is huge! There's a movie theater and dance floor built into their new pad?! Crazy!! Talk about lounging poolside, there's even a bed positioned right next to the swimming pool! The only thing missing from that is some pool fences built in to keep everyone safe! Oh well. Lucky contestants! Who is your favorite this season? What do you want to see the contestants sing? Who do you want to go home? Sound off below!
With Bamboozle a little less than two months away, the excitement for the three day music festival keeps building and building. On May 19, one of our favorite bands, Blink 182, will be headlining the event in Asbury Park, NJ. This is so exciting since we grew up with their music. Come on, "All The Small Things" and "What's My Age Again?" are such classics. Do any of you remember their CD cover for "Enema of the State", which featured a lady in a nurse uniform on it? Fans and non-fans alike knew that cover. We're so excited to rock out to their hits! Are any of you attending Bamboozle this year? Who are you most excited to see? If you're still on the fence rather you should buy tickets to the festival or not, watch Blink 182's music video for "What's My Age Again?" below:

This is officially one of my favorite episodes of Person of Interest to date. Just give Michael Emerson every award available. He's perfect. Finch and Reese are investigating an out of the ordinary case of identity theft. All they have is the name Jordan and a man and a woman. Not knowing which one of them is the criminal, they tail both of them. Reese takes the guy and learns he has a hand in a lab that makes Ecstasy. Throughout this investigation, I've learned that Finch invented social networking. Thanks for the Tumblr gif giving, Finchy!
We're pumped for the new season of Make It Or Break It. It doesn't get the love it deserves! The question on everyone's mind this season: What's wrong with Lauren? Pregnancy? Diabetes? Will she be able to train for the Olympics? Here are some sneak peeks at Monday's new episode: It Takes Two.
We're so excited that Person of Interest returns tonight! The last time we saw the guys, they were practically a happily married couple protecting a baby. Now, the gang tries to figure out an out of the ordinary case of identity theft. What I really want to know is, what is blowing Finch's mind in the preview? Here are some sneak peeks of tonight's new episode of Person of Interest: Identity Crisis.

Last year, I was all set to go to the Backstreet Boys/New Kids on the Block concert in my city. Two days before the show, I broke my foot. I'm still incredibly bitter. With 90's nostalgia running high lately, the rumor that 98 degrees may be reuniting for a Summer tour is welcome news. I just might have to check this out if they come near me. Then I could spend the rest of my night watching my Newlyweds dvds.
Would you go see them?
As Katy Perry once said, "nothing comes close to the golden coast". Growing up, I've always had dreams of moving cross country to California. While I'm very proud to call myself a Jersey girl, my heart has forever belonged to The Golden State. I've spent numerous summers cruising around Hollywood, soaking in the sun on the beautiful beaches, and exploring everything else expected of a tourist. Now that I graduated from college as a Journalism and Media Studies major, I'm left with a huge decision to make. Do I pack up my life and head to California to pursue my dreams or do I stay here close to New York City and continue on with the only life I've ever known?

Nestor Carbonell has signed on to join ABC's new pilot The Smart One. I have two things to say about this. 1: Yay! He's getting work! 2: Wait, he's already employed? Why am I not watching The Ringer? The series is set to star Portia De Rossi and has Ellen Degeneres has an executive producer. Sounds good!
Over the past few years, social media has exploded in popularity around the world. It's become some of the easiest and fastest ways for news to spread, for people to keep in touch, and for allowing your online personality to shine. Another benefit these days is how simple it is to promote something. So many people, groups, and companies use the popularity of social media for a good cause. I, personally, have donated to several charities after reading about them on Twitter or Facebook advertising. It's definitely a positive side to social media and we're always happy to hear that fans are making an effort to do good.
Who is ready to see Matt Bomer on Glee? We've seen some grim previews of the episode but now that the hype is about the guest stars, we can't help but feel that the episode won't be about a funeral.

How are you liking the new season of Make It Or Break It so far? Are you liking the new characters? Here is the preview promo for next week's new episode of Make It Or Break It: It Takes Two.
Earlier this year, Marc Anthony embarked on a South American tour. This included stops in countries such as Chile, Argentina and Costa Rica. Anthony's (and ex wife Jennifer Lopez) lead guitarist Mario Sebastian was along for the ride. Sebastian chose to go with Egnater Amps for all his tour needs, which he believes helped him deliver a great performance every night. When you're constantly on the road, musicians want equipment that's going to last long and give amazing results every single time. Read Sebastian's statement on the amps below:
Last month, we were given free tickets to check out We Are The In Crowd while they were in New York City on their co-headlining tour with Every Avenue. We went in knowing very little about the band and came away huge fans. We Are The In Crowd are a pop punk band fronted by Taylor Jardine and Jordan Eckes. Since there's both male and female lead vocals, there's a unique dynamic that the band brings to the music scene. Their music is fun and catchy, all while taking on themes such as breakups and new love. Our personal favorite song of theirs is "Both Sides of The Story". They recently released the music video for their song "Kiss Me Again" featuring All Time Low's Alex Gaskarth. This song is all about that feeling when you know you're falling for someone and you really hope that person feels the same way back. "Kiss Me Again" is off their latest album "Best Intentions". Watch the music video for it below:

There's a ton of Glee casting news today. It is now being reported that Whoopi Goldberg has signed on to appear in around three episode towards the end of the season. She'll be playing a professor at NYADA who may be making the decision on who gets into the school. What do you think about this casting choice?
Bad news for Terra Nova fans. Netflix won't be saving the show. The company had recently been in talks to save the series but a deal ultimately, could not be made. There's still a slim chance that the show could be saved by another network but judging by Jason O'mara's recent tweets, it looks like he's throwing in the towel. This is so sad. I loved that show. I loved the cast too. Will you miss the show?
In your daily dose of What the heck? news, Lindsay Lohan is reaching a deal to guest star on Glee. If the deal goes through, she'll be appearing in one of the final episodes of the season as a judge at Nationals. Are they going back to NYC again? I feel like there hasn't been as much build up this season for Nationals like there was last year. Can't they just bring back Sandy and Josh Groban?
While we may not be seeing more of Sebastian Stan next week on Once Upon A Time..we will be seeing Barbara Hershey as the Queen's mother. Looks like we'll also finally learn why she hates Snow so much. Here is the preview promo for next week's new episode of Once Upon A Time: The Stable Boy.
Will Tom and Julia really cast someone else as the new Marilyn? Will Ivy be able to go back to just being a member of the chorus? Here is the preview promo for next week's new episode of Smash: Hell on Earth.
I can't find the words to describe how excited I am for Make It Or Break It to be back. Even better than that? The season premiere was awesome! It has a spiffy new opening too! There's something very dramatic and Olympic-y about it. I love it.

The wait is over! Justin Bieber's new single "Boyfriend" is finally out. The song will be off his upcoming album "Believe". Singer Mike Posner co-wrote and co-produced the number. Well, this song is definitely different from all of the Biebs' previous stuff. "Boyfriend" has a more grown-up sound from what we're used to from him. Actually, it's kind of reminiscent of old school Justin Timberlake. According to our Twitter feeds, we're not the only ones who think that .You can buy your copy of "Boyfriend" on iTunes now! Get your first listen below:

Last November, Hot Chelle Rae released their sophmore album "Whatever". It is without a doubt, one of our favorite CDs to come out of 2011.

Many of the shows are selling out, so if you haven't already make sure you buy your tickets for when they pass through your town.
