The City continues to be electrified by starpower and starpower alone this 2015 MuchMusic Video Awards weekend as Stars were spotted both arriving and out and about. Arriving earlier today were this year’s Host, Ed Sheeran, flying-in on a private flight just in the nick of time to do some last minute rehearsals. He would at the Gala go on to win MOST BUZZWORTHY INTERNATIONAL ARTIST OR GROUP during the Broadcast.Megastars Adam Lambert and Nick Jonas, here to present and perform respectively, arrived quietly and handsomely also earlier with little fanfare, before facing Fans tonight on the Queen Street Red Carpet outside Bell Media Headquarters.
We spotted several stars today and were extremely happy to find up-and-coming Band ECHOSMITH whom after playing a show in Virginia last night, made their way early today after some delays. Consisting of siblings Jamie, Noah, Graham and Sydney Sierota, the Band quickly has won my heart with great tunes like Cool Kids and Bright, which have filled our airwaves in recent months. I am expecting big things of this Quartet, who were all amazingly nice and enthused to be here.
Prior to gracing the Red Carpet, we saw several stars warm-up and greet Fans leaving their Hotel before the Fandemonium kicked into high gear. Hailee Steinfeld had our fave look in a shimmery cocktail dress, while Bella Thorne was gorgeous in a mesh, lacy red dress – her tousled red curls just flawless. And of course Supermodel Gigi Hadid would be seen and not forgotten with an asymmetrical pink patent leather jacket with her surname hashtagged across the back, midriff baring in an edgy look fit for a Music Awards show.
But our favourite starspotting today? Definitely Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy who was seen walking out and about on Father’s Day carrying his adorable son Saint Laszlo, kind to stop for a quick Snap on the street!
It ain’t even Summer yet, but everyone knows that the Campaign for coveted SONG OF THE SUMMER usually begins well in advance. The culmination of some masterful Publicity and Promotion by the Record Label for complete Airwave Domination! We’ve kept our ears open and we love that Pop Music is making a return back to proper melodies and although bugs terrify us, we certainly aren’t afraid of an Earworm.
We’re noticing the Europeans completely are winning the Pop Music Game right now with several Transatlantic Imports like Ellie Goulding, zedd and Tove Lo having a major presence on-air, but longtime veterans like Flo Rida and Maroon 5 also are showing incredible longevity. New names like Andy Grammer, Echosmith and Tori Kelly are bringing that sunny West Coast vibe across the continent. Canadians Walk Off the Earth have a mighty-catchy Tune in Rule the World which could find success across the Border! It’s tough to say who will come out on-top but there surely are some worth Contenders!
