She will also play three nights at Chicago's United Center and four shows at Toronto, ON's Air Canada Centre. Most other markets will feature two-night-stands. See the dates here.
The appearance also reunited the band with Simon Cowell, who had nothing but praise for the lads: 'Well, this takes me back five years ago when I met five guys, singing as solo artists, and then I never could have predicted what happened next.
"And I know you're gonna take a break, you deserve the break. I want to really just take the chance now to say thank you. You've been an absolute pleasure to work with … Five of the nicest guys I ever met. Enjoy the time off. Have a fantastic time," Cowell said. Read more here.
But there's more! Recently, a demo version of the song surfaced containing an additional verse and some alterations to the beat and melody. According to MTV, "Anaconda 2.0" was released by AnonXmous, who was a producer on the finished version. He intends to include the material on his forthcoming Hallucinagens mixtape.
Most notably, Nicki raps on the track "I got a big fat a-, big d-s follow." Even though the lyrics didn't make the final cut, let's say they're spiritually akin to the "Anaconda" we know. Listen to Nicki's very, very NSFW bonus verse here.
'Getting ready for this I wondered about a lot of things," Swift says in the trailer. 'I wondered what it would be like to perform for 70,000 people. I wondered what it would look like if they were all lit up and dancing around like no one was watching. I wondered what would happen if I invited the most amazing artists in the world to come out with me and perform on my stage, would they do it? This is the '1989 World Tour.'"
The film was directed by Jonas Akerlund, and features the full Nov. 28 concert performance in Sydney, Australia as well as behind the scenes footage from the tour. Read more and watch the trailer here.

'Hello all. I'm taking a break from my phone, emails and all social media for a while," Sheeran wrote. "I've had such an amazing ride over the last 5 years but I find myself seeing the world through a screen and not my eyes so I'm taking this opportunity of me not having to be anywhere or do anything to travel the world and see everything I've missed."
The note included a plea for understanding to all, while he explores the world unplugged. 'To my family and friends, if you love me you will understand me buggering off for a bit, to my fans, the 3rd album is on its way and is the best thing I have made thus far," he said. "See you all next autumn, and thank you for being amazing."
Check out Sheeran's time-out social media post here.
"I'm finishing my album and my next collection'" he tweeted. "No offense to anyone' I'm asking everyone DON'T ASK ME FOR ANYTHING TILL AFTER I'M FINISHED WITH MY ALBUM."
'We had a couple options and I just thought it sounded good against the people," he told Vanity Fair about his theatrical broadcast of his fashion show. "For the 40 theaters across the globe, for the kids that all went to see it in theaters, I thought they'd be happy to hear some new music. I've been doing that [making a new album] too. That's like a sonic landscape, a two-year painting. That song I played has been a year and a half in the making and it may be still a year from being complete. But it was to let people get a glimpse at the painting."
He said SWISH would come when the time is right. 'I'm worried about the life and the body of work that I can put out while I'm breathing," he said. Read more here.
Her debut album, Untamed, which was produced by Jeff Bhasker and Tyler Johnson, was released last week and the singer-songwriter says she drew inspiration from a fellow artist.
"I really admire Eric Church and what he and [producer] Jay Joyce do, and Tyler and I and Jeff listened a lot to what they'd done. I still have Chief in my car," Cam admits to Rolling Stone Country.
"I think he's super inspiring in that he makes music he wants to make. . . I also really admire Zac Brown Band and the way they have built this family around what they do. That's really important to me." Read more here.
Now he's posted a mysterious photo from the studio on Instagram teasing another collaboration on his debut solo album, The Driver. "Just doing a little mixing of #thedriver record. Miranda who?" he captioned the below photo. Odds are there's a track on the project with Miranda Lambert.
This wouldn't be their first collaboration. Kelley and bandmate Dave Haywood co-wrote "Love Song" with Lambert and her then-husband Blake Shelton. Kelley and Haywood also sang background vocals on the tune that appeared on Lambert's Revolution album. See the post here.
At first, some locals suspected the white letters were done in temporary chalk. However, rainfall in San Francisco failed to rinse away the promotional street art.
"Using our sidewalks for advertising is unacceptable," SF Public Works employee Rachel Gordon Read told Hoodline. "We've inquired with both Public Works and the City Attorney's office as to when the tags will be cleaned up, and whether Bieber and his labels, Def Jam Recordings and School Boy Records, will be held accountable; we've yet to receive a response from them or from Bieber's label and management."

The Game shared that he didn't get involved because he's on probation. Instead, his manager Wack 100 threw the punch that knocked Stitches out cold. "That n-- start walking up and s-. Marcus was holding me back cause he know I'm on probation," he said. "That n-- went to sleep."
The Game encouraged fans to record the reenactment, with Game playing himself while a member of his crew plays Stitches and hams it up to full effect. Looks like this beef isn't quieting down anytime soon. Check out the video from the show here.
Sia sat down with Jo Whiley on BBC Radio 2 this weekend, and shared that she'd recently met with Rihanna to discuss possible tracks for the project (via NME). Sia wrote Rihanna's 2012 hit "Diamonds" and offered her the song "Alive," before Sia ended up recording it and releasing it herself.
"The other night she came over and listened to half of 25 songs I played her because she's still looking for songs for her new album," Sia said. "She was there to listen to songs and see if there was anything that she was into. It was a business meeting for sure. She took four [songs] but I don't know if they'll end up [on the album]."

The video shows Derulo and crew, decked out in 90s fashion styles, dancing on a movie set street, in a salon and later at a laundromat. The whole thing has a cartoonish feel between the colors, costumes and superimposed text like "Brahhhh" that transitions scenes.
Derulo shows off some fresh moves by way of slick choreography throughout the whole thing. When it comes to the chorus, the dance is even easy enough to compete with the Whip. Is Derulo trying to start the next dance crazy by way of "Get Ugly"? It sure looks that way. Watch the video here.
The "Sweet Sweet Fantasy Tour" opens in Glasgow, Scotland on March 15, with shows scheduled to end April 23 in Amsterdam before two concerts in South Africa in early May.
"I'm calling it the Sweet, Sweet Fantasy tour," Carey tells Lorraine. "I wanted to give people some nostalgia - so that title is from my song Fantasy obviously. The fans can expect lots of songs - I'm going to research what songs were big in what territories and then I'm going to sing those songs especially for those fans.
"I'm just trying to put on a really good show that people are going to enjoy and be close to the fans. Not everyone is so close to their fans but I have a very special relationship with my fans. I love all things pertaining to music and creativity ... everything is fun for me but I love being on stage." See the dates and ticket onsale information here.
"'You Should Be Here,' [is] a song I wrote last year when I was on tour, I wrote it outside of a football stadium, believe it or not. Just thinking about… I lost my dad two years ago in a freak accident, and when Ashley Gorley, one of my favorite writers, brought up this title, he had to have known that's what I wanted to write."
"I thought about my dad," he continues. "Just all the things that I get to do. It ain't even for the folks that maybe haven't lost somebody, maybe you just miss somebody. Maybe you have family in another state, or there's those moments in life that we all get to share, and it's like if that one person was here, man, they'd freak out, they would love it."
"And I think that's why this song means so much: it's personal. But I got into country music to record and write songs that mean something to people, and I think having this first album and four hit songs, I think that's allowed me to say what I wanna say. At this point in my life I get to do a lot of special things."
"And that's what I think everybody's gonna be able to relate to [the song], it's just a real song about life. So I'm really excited about it." Read more here.
Pusha-T reached out to Beanie Sigel for a verse on his new album. Beans explained how he gave Pusha some of his new magic. "I don't know what he officially named the song yet," Beans said. "The song is about taking a loss and bouncing back. Always keeping something in the ceiling."
The track, according to RRP co-host Elliot Wilson, showcases a different and deeper tenor in Sigel's voice. "This my new voice," Beanie said, speaking with a slightly different texture. "Y'all gotta get used to it. Since the accident, my voice got raspy."
The new Pusha song features the first Beanie Sigel guest verse since the Philly rapper recovered from injuries sustained from a shooting in December of 2014.
While he still has the flow, he said he has to work around the longterm affects of his injury. "A piece of one of my lungs is missing significantly," he said. "My voice. I don't got the wind like I used to. That breath control. I gotta punch in now. Before I got 1000 bars, one take. I gotta take a breaths every now and then." Read more here.
