Hailee Steinfeld appeared on Monday night’s “The Voice” as a mentor to team Kelly Clarkson. Shawn Mendes also played a mentor role for Alicia Keys’ team, but people seemed truly confused by Hailee giving singing advice since she’s a newbie herself.

Nick Jonas’ 2015 was complicated, but his 2016 was simply disappointing. Following up on his album and tour with Demi Lovato, it looked like Nick was going to be shut out of all of the major award shows. Even the award shows started to feel bad as MTV gave Nick a consolation prize after he was snubbed and Radio Disney gave Nick a “Hero” award.
However, Nick has a chance to bring home some more hardware coming up. He’s been nominated for the 2017 CMT Performance of the Year award for his performance of “Close” with Thomas Rhett featuring Danielle Bradbery on “CMT Crossroads.” Nick is up against some stiff competition in the category, though, squaring off against country music heavyweight Jason Aldean, Meghan Trainor’s performance with Jill Scott and Kelsea Ballerini and a duet from Alicia Keys and Nick’s go-to sad time musician, Marren Morris.
Watch Nick and Thomas perform together below, plus see Nick’s Instagram post about the nomination. Vote on all of the CMT Award categories including Nick’s here.

Miley Cyrus may be sitting out as a judge for “The Voice” this season, but that doesn’t mean it won’t have some wild moments. On Monday night, a contestant from Team Alicia Keys stole the show as he brought the house down with a version of Rihanna’s “Love on the Brain.”
Chris Blue gave the track a doo-wop, soul twist as he took it all over his range. Full of impressive runs, the cover was so powerful, even Alicia didn’t look like she could believe it.
Watch Chris cover “Love on the Brain” below.

Danielle Bregoli is still riding her viral fame. Now, instead of using a radio interview to trash talk Kylie Jenner, Danielle actually appears to be making career moves as she’s meeting with big-time music producers at age 14. Over the weekend, Danielle met with Mark Batson and Che Pope.
Mark is a GRAMMY winner for his work on Beyoncé’s “Dangerously In Love” album and has credits with Jay Z, Dr. Dre and Eminem, as well. Che has worked with Lauryn Hill, Alicia Keys and used to be the head of Kanye West’s label. Mark was giving Danielle a piano lesson in a video from their meet-up.
“This shit’s fucking hard,” Danielle says at the end of the video, getting a laugh from both of the music industry insiders.
Unfortunately, her burgeoning music career isn’t at the forefront of Danielle’s mind right now as a three-year-old video of a fight with her mom is reportedly making authorities question whether or not there’s child abuse going on.
See videos of Danielle learning to play the piano, fighting with her mom and denying that she’s been abused below.

It’s no secret how much Alicia Keys and Miley Cyrus have bonded since joining season 11 of NBC’s “The Voice.” From foundations to music, the two have been nothing but supportive of one another and Miley is now taking that support to new levels.

See Miley’s licking photo below.

Zac Efron is doing impressions now. The actor shared a short clip of himself sitting at a piano on social media on Thursday. But it wasn’t just any piano. It was the piano Alicia Keys used for “Empire State of Mind,” her hit song with Jay-Z. The famous set of keys prompted Zac to share his best impression of Alicia tickling the ivories.
Zac came across the piano while shooting “The Greatest Showman,” an upcoming biopic of P.T. Barnum starring Hugh Jackman.
Check out Zac’s impression of Alicia below.
