Beyonce Set To Perform At Michael Jackson: The Tribute Concert

If you love Beyonce then you should know how much of a die-hard Michael Jackson fan she is. Her idol and who she calls the person that influenced her to want to do music, Beyonce will be performing via satellite at the Michael Jackson tribute concert in October. The news broke today via Facebook and although she wanted to be able to perform in person, her schedule just conflicted.

The word out there now is that her performance is something never seen before. We all remember how she shut it down at the VMA’s so lets see if it’s somewhat in comparison to that. The concert was put together by Michael’s brothers and his mother Katherine. Other celebs set to hit the stage are Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Smokey Robinson, Leona Lewis and plenty more.

Katy Perry Ties Michael Jackson Record

Katy Perry proves that pop music rules the charts with her multi-platinum album Teenage Dream.  Besides making her acting debut in The Smurfs and headlining a world tour, this diva has even more exciting news.

She is the first female artist EVER to have FIVE #1 SINGLES from one album.  “California Gurls,” “Teenage Dream,” “Firework,” “E.T.,” and “Last Friday Night (TGIF)” have all made it to the top of the Billboard charts.

Katy ties the overall record with the iconic Michael Jackson.  His album Bad spawned five number one hits as well:  “I Just Can’t Stop Loving You,” “Bad,” “The Way You Make Me Feel,” “Man in the Mirror” and “Dirty Diana.”

Mrs. Russell Brand showed her appreciations to fans via Twitter earlier today:

“What a way to wake up! SO proud to announce that the little-engine-that-could of a song ‘LAST FRIDAY NIGHT’ is officially #1 & made HISTORY!…&u know, I couldn’t have done it with out ya, really I owe u guys BIG… so take this moment to give yourself a high FIVE!!! #allbecauseofu.”

Congrats, diva!

Amy Winehouse’s Music Sales Skyrocket

Since the tragic, untimely death of one of music’s greatest talents, Amy Winehouse’s record sales have seen a skyrocket in numbers sold. Since the singer’s death this past Saturday and according to Nielsen SoundScan, Amy’s hit album Back To Black has shot to the #9 position on the Billboard 200 this week selling 37,000 copies. While just last week only 1,000 copies were sold.

Sales on Frank, Amy’s debut, have also seen a rise in numbers. Reaching #57 and selling 8,000 in sales which were most accounted for digital purchases. Back To Black and Frank have overall sold 95 percent in digital sales.

In the same fashion that Michael Jackson’s music sold whooping numbers after his passing, it looks as though the same will be sad for Amy Winehouse. Sales figures are expected to go even higher come next week.

Video: Michael Jackson’s Nephew Makes Musical Debut

This weekend, Austin Brown debuted the trailer to his debut album at KIIS-FM’s Wango Tango Concert in Los Angeles. The 25-year old newcomer is the daughter of Rebbie Jackson and nephew to the late, great Michael Jackson.  According to Ryan Seacrest, Austin’s influences include Prince, George Michael, and of course, his uncle.  He is being described as a cross between MJ and Justin Timberlake- that’s quite a compliment.

The video trailer displays all of Austin’s qualities: he can sing, dance, and is extremely charming.  He comes from a long line of entertainers, but I can see him making his own mark.

Sidebar: Is that America’s Next Top Model winner Saliesha as the lead girl?? I’m good at spotting these things.  Check out the video and more promo pics below.  What do you think of Austin?
