MTV Video Music Awards: Top 5 Moments

Originally posted 08/29/2011 02:15AM

Yes, the biggest jaw-dropper of the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday happened on the black carpet before the show even began: Beyoncé's baby bump reveal. But that was hardly the only surprise of the famously unpredictable show.

Among the night's big winners: Katy Perry, who scored three Moon Men – her first-ever – including Video of the Year for "Firework;" British soul singer Adele, who won three trophies for her mega-hit "Rolling in the Deep" (and received a standing ovation for her stunning live performance of "Someone Like You"); and Justin Bieber for Best Male Video ("U Smile").

A rundown of the night's other buzz-worthy moments:

American Idol

Originally posted 05/26/2011 09:45AM

It was an American Idol finale for the record books: Steven Tyler sang "Dream On," Jennifer Lopez and husband Marc Anthony shared a dance and a kiss on stage, country legends Tim McGraw and Carrie Underwood wowed, James Durbin got his happy metal ending with Judas Priest, Tom Jones showed the men of the top 13 how it's done and Haley Reinhart even sang a snazzy version of "Steppin' Out with My Baby" with Tony Bennett.

But the night belonged to Scotty McCreery, who took home the Idol crown.

"It was just a moment I will never forget," said McCreery, 17, of his win. "This was all about me being able to accomplish my dreams. I'm an American Idol. That was a huge dream. It's time for me to start my career. The real work begins."

Barack Obama to Honor His Musical Hero, Stevie Wonder

Originally posted 02/24/2009 10:15AM

During Barack Obama's presidential campaign, Stevie Wonder honored him in song at rallies and fundraisers. Now the President is returning the favor to the artist he's called his musical hero.

On Wednesday, Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama will present Wonder, 58, with the Library of Congress's Gershwin Prize for Popular Song.

The salute, to be held in the White House's East Room and broadcast Thursday night on PBS, will feature artists including Martina McBride (who will sing Wonder's hit "You and I"), Will.I.Am, Tony Bennett, Paul Simon and India.Arie.

Obama last year told Rolling Stone that he really got into music during Wonder's heyday in the early '70s, when Wonder released albums like Talking Book, Innervisions and Songs in the Key of Life. "So that was a guy I loved," Obama said.

After the singer's rousing, three-song performance at Tony Bennett's Exploring The Arts Gala in Manhattan Tuesday night, emcee Whoopi Goldberg took to the stage smiling like a teenaged girl.

"Oh my God! How cute is John Mayer?" The View host, 52, said to the cheering crowd, which included Gayle King, Regis Philbin, Terrence Howard and Quincy Jones. "In the old days, I'da snatched him up," she continued to roars of laughter. "Now, I'm too tired."
