“On this stage for one night only the Nashville sound meets the soul of Memphis.  The CMA New Artist of the Year shares a drink with his superstar buddy from the home of the blues!  Get to your feet Nashville for Chris Stapleton and Justin Timberlake.”  

Last night at the Country Music Awards pop hitmaker Justin Timberlake showcased his musical chops in a slightly different genre.  Though he’s renowned for his pop, R&B, and hip hop stylings, last night the Memphis-born crooner returned to his country and blues roots.  Timberlake teamed up with friend and CMA New Artist of the Year winner Chris Stapleton, and the duo rocked the house with one of the most anticipated performances of the evening!

The musical buddies performed Stapleton’s “Tennessee Whiskey” before closing things out with Timberlake’s “Drink You Away.”  Talk about the perfect alcohol themed performance that we can most definitely get behind!  Justin Timberlake’s signature falsetto notes took center stage as he and Stapleton played guitar and seemingly had a great time performing side by side!

Shockingly (to no one) Taylor Swift has received four nominations for the ceremony, including a nod in the Favorite Female Artist and Favorite Pop Artist categories, though she is tied for the most nominations with The Weeknd, who may just give her a run for her money.The duo are facing off in the Favorite Song category, where both “Bad Blood” and “Can’t Feel My Face” are duking it out for an award against Justin Bieber, Ellie Goulding, and Wiz Khalifa.  The Weeknd also faces recognition in the Favorite Breakout Artist section, though the competition is fierce there this year.

Are we even a little surprised that Taylor Swift is leading the pack of nominations for this year’s MTV EMAs?  Let’s be serious here…

And the nominations are in for this year’s MTV EMAs, European Music Awards obviously, and we bet you can guess who is going to be picking up most of the awards come October 25.  This year’s show will be hosted in Milan, Italy at the Mediolanum Forum, and the theme is gearing up to be 1989 by the looks of it.

Unsurprisingly Taylor Swift is leading the pack with an impressive nine nominations, including a nod in the Best Song and Best Pop categories.  The only one that she really hasn’t made it on is the Best New Act category, though we’re thinking that the EMAs may be able to work something out.  Justin Bieber’s return to fame has pretty much been cemented, evidenced by his chart topping success last week and the six nominations that he has picked up this year.  Following behind are the likes of Ariana GrandeOne Direction, 5 Seconds of SummerEllie Goulding, Tori Kelly, Years & YearsMiley Cyrus, and Nicki Minaj Here’s hoping for Take 2 on the Nicki-Miley feud.  It’s the only thing that may make this series a little more interesting!
