The Friday Five: Grease: Live!

“Grease: Live” is premiering this weekend with an all-star cast including Carlos PenaVega from BTR, Vanessa Hudgens, Keke Palmer, Carly Rae Jepsen and special guests DNCE and BoyzIIMen!

We are so excited to watch and sing along on Sunday night!  The cast is sure to dazzle audiences and bring “Grease” to a whole new generation.   Check out our Friday Five songs we can’t wait to see live!  Tune into FOX at 7pm on Sunday to watch it live!

1. “Greased Lightning”
It’ll be fun to see Carlos PenaVega chime in on this track and see him put his “Dancing With The Stars” skills on display!

2. “Beauty School Drop Out”
BoyzIIMen will guest star as Teen Angel in Sunday nights broadcast and their harmonies on this song are going to be angelic, indeed!

3. “We Go Together”
The whole cast together singing this one will bring a tear to our eyes as we remember Vanessa Hudgen’s full cast finale from every HSM movie.

4. “You’re The One That I Want”
Probably the most iconic song from the movie.

5. “Summer Nights”
Carlos and Vanessa gave a little preview of this number on TODAY!

The Friday Five: 2015 Albums of the Year (Pop)

It feels like we just wrote our 2014 Albums of the Year post about 5 minutes ago, but it’s time to look back on our favorite albums of 2015!   Here are our picks for our top pop albums of the year.  We included 2 EPs because they were too good NOT to and we’re crossing our fingers for full albums from them next year!

1.  Selena Gomez – “Revival”
After a public split from The Biebs, Selena Gomez is back! “Revival” was well worth the wait.

2. Carly Rae Jepsen – “E·MO·TION”
Carly Rae is easily one of the most underestimated pop artists, and one that certainly knows how to make a throwback album that sounds like it came straight out of the 80s.  (in a good way) 

3. The Vamps – “Wake Up”
The Vamps are poised to take over America with their new album and it’s about time – they’re so good!

4. Hilary Duff – “Breathe In, Breathe Out”
Hilary Duff’s 5th studio album was well worth the (long!) wait.

5. DNCE – “SWAAY”
This EP makes us want to sway and dance to every song!  We can’t wait for a full album from Joe, Cole, JinJoo, and Jack.

5. Jake Miller – “Rumors”
This EP was one of our favorites that came out in 2015 – every track is a JAM!  We’re anxious for new music from Jake Miller.

Carly Rae Jepsen Releases “Run Away With Me” Video

Carly Rae Jepsen knows how to craft a hit song and make a cute video.  “Run Away With Me” shows off Carly Rae’s fun-loving, adventurous life as she goofs around and plays tourist in Paris, New York and Tokyo!  The video matches the romantic feeling of the song, making you feel like she took you on the best vacation of your life: dancing on NYC subway platforms, taking in Paris from the top of the Eiffel Tower, and singing karaoke in true Tokyo fashion.

Carly Rae’s 80’s inspired, synth heavy sound on her new album, “EM.O.TION” is just what we’ve been wanting for this summer!

Watch the video for “Run Away With Me” below.

FANGIRL TIPS:  The concerts take place from 7am to 9am, although we suggest lining up quite a bit earlier to get a good spot!  You’ll get to watch the artists’ early morning soundcheck, and hear around 3-4 songs during the live show.  Sign up for the TODAY Show Concert Series Newsletter to be eligible to sign up for a Fan Pass to the show.  A Fan Pass is awesome and lets you into the viewing area before the general public line!  (You’ll still have to arrive no later than 6AM, but it’s so worth it.)  Our thoughts on TODAY Show Concerts?  Are you going to remember that Summer Friday you were well rested for work/school/etc?  Or that time that Donnie Wahlberg serenaded you at 6AM?
