Scrolling through Facebook the other day, we saw this awesome mash-up of Hailee Steinfeld, Zedd and Grey’s “Starving” with the Temptations’ classic “My Girl” performed by ABT LST NT.
ABT LST NT, according to their Facebook page, is based out of LA, but members Mikey Bromley, Eben Franckewitz, Jackson Owens, and Jack Taylor come from all over the globe.
“My Girl” was originally released back in December 1964 and became a number one hit in 1965. The track was not only number one on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart, but it was also number one on the Billboard R&B Singles Chart the year the chart was reinstated (it was closed for two years.)
As for “Starving” the track is currently number 13 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart and rising each week. You’ve seen the track on the charts for 17 weeks now and its up two positions from last week.
Shawn Mendes took the stage at Capital FM’s Jingle Bell Ball over the weekend and it should come as no surprise, that he absolutely nailed his performance.
Below you can check out his performances from “Ruin,” “Mercy,” “Treat You Better” and of course, the smash hit “Stitches.
Shawn’s currently got two tracks on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart with “Mercy” at 35 and “Treat You Better” at 17. Both appear on his second studio album “Illuminate.”
Shawn heads out on his “Illuminate” World Tour on March 18—the first show is in the Philippines. The tour will in land in the U.S. on July 6 in Portland, Ore., take a quick trip to Canada on July 8 and head back to the U.S. on July 9. Tickets are on sale now.
You can catch “Hairspray: Live!” this Wednesday at 8 p.m. (7c) on NBC.
For those who have never seen the play or movie, “Hairspray” is about a teen girl, Tracy, who isn’t afraid to be who she is. Tracy seeks to land a role on a local dance TV show, but doesn’t look the part…but she certainly has the moves. After landing the part, she shows 1962 Baltimore that all deserve to be accepted…That dance and music have no boundaries.
Appearing in the production will be Ariana Grande at Penny—a dream role for her—Garrett Clayton, Jennifer Hudson, Dove Cameron and Kristin Chenoweth. The film’s star is newcomer to the scene Maddie Baillio. Seriously talk about a star line up!
The original Broadway production has taken home eight Tony Awards and nine Drama Desk Awards.
A soundtrack for the production is also available, you can pick that up today.
“Hairspray” is the latest in NBC’s musical productions. Others included “The Sound of Music,” “Peter Pan,” and “The Wiz.”
