Miley Cyrus

While you were toasting to 2014, music’s biggest stars were providing the soundtrack to New Year’s Eve. Following a whirlwind year, Miley Cyrus took over New York City’s Times Square for “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest.” Wearing a long white fur coat and sequined gold attire, the pop star performed “#GETITRIGHT” and “Wrecking Ball” with a little person and her band.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis capped off an epic 2013 with performances of their hits “Thrift Shop” and “Can’t Hold Us.”

“New Years 2014. Times Square. Rapping to the world… A fitting end to the year I could have never dreamed of,” tweeted Macklemore.

Robin Thicke delivered his mega-hit “Blurred Lines,” Jennifer Hudson powered through her new single “I Can’t Describe (The Way I Feel),” and Jason Derulo performed his Jordin Sparks-inspired song “Marry Me.”

Ariana Grande was joined by Big Sean for a performance of “Right There,” while Pitbull kept the celebration going with “Don’t Stop the Party” and “Timber.”

Over on “NBC’s New Year’s Eve with Carson Daly,” Mariah Carey kicked off 2014 with a medley of her hits. Perched on a rooftop overlooking NYC, the pop diva ran through “Fantasy,” “Honey,” “Always Be My Baby,” “We Belong Together,” and more. Later in the program, she performed her new single “The Art of Letting Go.”

Miley Cyrus Twerks on Santa, Ariana Grande Spreads Cheer at Jingle Ball

Miley Cyrus

From Miley to Macklemore, pop’s biggest stars rung in the holidays at 102.7 KIIS FM’s Jingle Ball in Los Angeles on Friday.

Following their seven Grammy nominations, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis rocked the Staples Center and brought out Schoolboy Q to perform “White Walls.”

Despite feeling under the weather, pint-sized diva Ariana Grande was cute as can be in a wintery white dress while singing an acoustic version of “Honeymoon Avenue” and her holiday single “Last Christmas.” She had technical difficulties during her set, but that didn’t stop her.

“I’m sorry if my mic was off the whole entire time. At least you know I’m not a track, right?” she told the crowd.

Some interpreted the comment as shade, but she took to Twitter to clear the air. “Ohhh jesus. I wasn’t throwing shade AT ALL I didn’t even see anyone else’s set. I was sick backstage that’s why I didn’t even do the carpet,” said Ariana.

Miley Cyrus was more naughty than nice during her provocative performance. The pop singer remixed her set for the holidays, twerking on St. Nick and dancing with sexy reindeer and a Christmas tree while performing “We Can’t Stop” and “#GETITRIGHT.”

“You are a VERY BAD Santa @CheyneThomas,” Miley told her friend.

Robin Thicke performed “Blurred Lines” with T.I. and caught up with his VMA partner-in-crime Miley backstage. His wife Paula Patton also stopped by to support her man, who was nominated for three Grammys earlier in the evening.

Jordin Sparks helped her boyfriend Jason Derulo cool off following his sweaty set, while other performers included Travie McCoy, Austin Mahone, Selena Gomez, and Enrique Iglesias.

New Music: Ariana Grande – ‘Snow in California’

Snow in California

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! Following “Last Christmas” and “Love Is Everything,” Ariana Grande debuts her third Christmas single “Snow in California.” The pop songstress pens a letter to Santa asking for snow so she can stay with her man just a little longer.

“Can you just make it snow in California?/ I’ll even settle for rain/ Don’t want him to go tomorrow morning/ Give me something to make him stay,” she sings over the snapping beat.

She will release “Santa Baby” next Tuesday, while all four songs can be found on her upcoming Christmas Kisses EP.

Gather around the fireplace and listen to Ariana’s cozy Christmas tune, which is now available on iTunes.
