Joel Madden, Delta Goodrem and Seal represented the Australian version of The Voice at the premiere of the US show’s fourth season in Hollywood last night (Ricky Martin wasn’t with them). They posed together on the red carpet and did some interviews with American media. When asked by Access Hollywood what could be expected from the second series of the Aussie show, which premieres on April 7, Joel joked that he’ll be “freaking out the whole time! There’s a lot of action, there’s explosions, there’s a lot of fake blood,” while Delta added, “We go all out in Australia. We really go to town.” Joel, Delta and Seal have a bit of downtime before the live shows pick up again, with Delta explaining, “We just did our battles so we’re going back for our lives [shows] in about a month. We’ve got really great talent in Oz this year — all the really arty-artists came out this year so we’re having a lot of fun with them.”
Seal also offered his two cents about the new mix of coaches on the US show this season — Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green are off the panel to focus on their music, and Shakira and Usher are taking their place. Seal said, “On paper it sounds good. We’ll just have to see how it plays out.” Christina and Usher were also on the red carpet last night, as was Blake Shelton with his wife Miranda Lambert.
Michelle Obama got some serious pop star support when she hosted the Kids' Inaugural concert in Washington DC yesterday. Michelle was joined by her daughters, Malia and Sasha, and Second Lady Dr. Jill Biden as she thanked the military men and women in the audience for their service and introduced the night's performers, including Katy Perry and Usher. Katy gave a particularly patriotic performance, dressed in a star-spangled romper while Usher chose an all-black ensemble. Other acts of the night included the cast of Glee and the Soul Children of Chicago. The Kids' Inaugural concert kicks off the 57th Presidential Inauguration, which takes place on Monday (US time). Despite all the other glamorous balls and events, Michelle talked about how the Kids' Inaugural has become her favourite moment of the weekend. She told the crowd, "Inauguration is a really big deal. There's balls. Everybody dress up and dances. Let me tell you: I love every single minute of it. Every single minute. But I have to tell you that my very favourite part of this entire weekend is being right here with all of you."

The American Music Awards are going down in LA this evening. Usher opened a show that went on to feature many performances from some of the biggest stars in the music industry. Gwen Stefani and the guys of No Doubt put on a show, as did Kelly Clarkson and Ke$ha. Taylor Swift performed her soon-to-be-released single "I Knew You Were Trouble." She changed out of the gold Zuhair Murad number she wore on the red carpet and into her second dress of the evening. Justin Bieber hit the stage too for a rendition of his songs "As Long As You Love Me" and "Beauty and a Beat." Pink put on an acrobatic, energetic performance, and Christina Aguilera wore a tiny costume to sing a song of her own.

Britney Spears had her second night out in a row on Thursday night at the "We Will Always Love You" Grammy salute to Whitney Houston held at the Nokia Theatre at LA Live. Britney posed on the carpet alongside stars like Halle Berry, Jennifer Hudson, and more Whitney fans. Inside, Britney took the stage, as did Halle, while Jennifer and Usher were among the performers. On Wednesday night, Britney and her fiancé Jason Trawick stepped out for the City of Hope charity's Spirit of Life Awards. Jason was also on hand to keep Britney company on Thursday. She tweeted a picture of them together at LA Live's backstage, captioning it, "Backstage at The Whitney Houston Tribute. Such a solemn occasion. Jason's doing his best to put a smile on my face." The social week comes during Britney's busy season of The X Factor — and working on Simon Cowell's reality program seems to be helping Britney accumulate quite the fortune! New court documents released this week show Britney Spears's net worth to be over $32 million.
The iHeartRadio Music Festival kicked off in Las Vegas on Friday with some of music's hottest names in town to perform. Ryan Seacrest emceed the event and was joined on stage at the top of the show by Britney Spears. The crowd went wild for Spears, who stepped out in a tight black mini dress and colourful pink and blue highlights in her hair. No Doubt was the first act to belt out their hits, with a mix of current singles like "Settle Down" and former chart toppers "Don't Speak," "It's My Life," and "Hellagood." The audience got a special surprise when Pink joined Gwen Stefani on stage for "Just a Girl." Miley Cyrus made the trip to Sin City as a presenter and teamed up with US Olympic gold medallist Ryan Lochte to introduce Lil Wayne to the sold out crowd. The night was a celebration of music genres with country, rap, R&B, pop, electric, and rock coming together to perform. Usher teamed up for a duet with Swedish House Mafia and had the crowd on their feet, though it was probably internet sensation Psy that got the most attention for his hot "Gangnam Style" dance moves. Rihanna closed down the four-hour block of live acts with her own high energy performance that included tracks from "Don't Stop The Music" to her latest release "Cockiness (Persuasion)."
