2013 was a great year for pop music … and on RyanSeacrest.com, the biggest acts made some serious waves.
Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez, Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, and Ariana Grande were amongst the stars who made the most noise on our site this year.
In April, the Pitch Perfect actress brought her song “Cups (When I’m Gone)” to life in a super cute video in which she made biscuits … and played the cups, of course.
On Halloween, RyanSeacrest.com had the exclusive premiere of the boys of Emblem3 lip-synching (and goofing around) to Ylvis‘ viral hit. It probably helped that the X Factor alums were in a shower in one scene!
On December 9, none other than Bieber himself called in to On Air with Ryan Seacrest to talk about his #MusicMondays, his Believe movie, and how he feels he’s been “bullied” by the media.
“People don’t get to see me living as a 19-year-old boy,” Justin explained. “I’m still finding myself and when I have the media attacking me everyday, it’s no [different] than bullying that happens in school … I think this movie really shows who I am as a person … of course I make mistakes growing up … and I’m not perfect … people forget I’m a human being [and] I have to make mistakes and grow stronger.”
In June, Miley gave On Air with Ryan Seacrest the exclusive first spin of her monster summer jam, “We Can’t Stop” … and she even came into the studio to press play herself! “Everyone always judges and say what they want, but my fans … have really stood by me no matter what I’ve been through … and this is a song that says where I’m at in my life right now,” she explained at the time.
In August, before they admitted they were indeed a couple, the “Baby, I” singer and The Wanted cutie played with our hearts in the music video for their duet, “Almost Is Never Enough,” from the Mortal Instruments soundtrack.
At the end of the video, Ariana puts her arm around Nathan’s neck as the two lean back on a couch. The next month, the two finally confirmed they had been a couple for some time and shared their “happiness” to be together. But it seems the romance was short-lived. Recent reports have speculated that Ariana and Nathan are no longer a couple.
In February, Demi dropped new music on her Lovatics when she premiered “Heart Attack” late on a Sunday night. Since, she has had hit after hit from her Demi album with “Made in the U.S.A.” and “Neon Lights.”
Viral video star turned The Ellen DeGeneres Show mainstay, Princess Sophia Grace, released the video for her song “Girls Just Gotta Have Fun” in June. In it, the 10-year-old Brit cruised down the streets in her pink plastic Cadillac, went to dance parties, and lounged in a mini pink throne.
For the third year in a row, Jimmy Kimmel asked parents to tell their kids they ate all their Halloween candy … and then film their meltdowns. And of course, they did not disappoint!
Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake (with a reunited *NSYNC!), Bruno Mars, and more lit up the stage at the MTV Video Music Awards in August, but of course it was that collaboration between Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke that really grabbed headlines and had people clamoring to the see the controversial performance. Watch them all again HERE!
Two days before Selena was set to premiere her mega-hit single, “Come & Get It,” on On Air with Ryan Seacrest, it unfortunately leaked … but she made this cute video for her fans saying that despite being disappointed that it leaked, she was “excited” for everyone to finally hear it.
What was your favorite story from 2013? We’re looking forward to many more in the coming year!
2013 might be coming to an end, but Adam Lambert’s fierceness and powerful vocals aren’t slowing down.
The “Whatya Want From Me” singer has staged several extravagant performances this year and will be ringing in 2014 at the WinStar World Casino in Thackerville, Oklahoma with an unforgettable show.
Round up your fellow Glamberts as we celebrate Adam and his most unforgettable moments of 2013!
These past 12 months have been a whirlwind of success for Ariana Grande.
The 20-year-old starlet, who was previously known for her role in Victorious and Sam & Cat, has grown into a worldwide phenomenon by showing off her powerful, sultry vocals. Whether it was her debut album, Yours Truly, or her moving AMAs performance, Ariana has made her claim in the music industry.
Here are her 9 most unforgettable moments of 2013:
The Nickelodeon star found love in 2013 when she confirmed her relationship with Nathan Sykes from The Wanted. The two first sparked rumors after releasing their music video, “Almost Is Never Enough,” for the Mortal Instruments soundtrack. Unfortunately, by the end of this year, it seems the long-distance romance fizzled.
Ariana released her debut album, Yours Truly, in August, and her first-ever LP debuted at No. 1 on Billboard 200 with over 138,000 copies sold.
Ariana stunned the world when she took the stage at the AMAs in December and stripped down her song, “Tattooed Heart,” and gave it the acoustic treatment. She also took home the highest honor, Best New Artist!
The 20-year-old songstress dropped the music video for her chart-topping debut single, “The Way,” in March, and the clip, which features rapper Mac Miller, has logged over 118 million views.
Ariana followed up her “The Way” music video with “Baby I,” in September, and the starlet showed off her infectious dance moves in the ’90s chic clip.
Ariana vamped up on cover of Complex magazine’s December/January issue, and the “Baby I” singer shared some creepy stories about her paranormal encounters.
The tragic love story of Romeo and Juliet lives on through Ariana’s music video for “Right There” featuring Big Sean, released in October — but this time — it has a happy ending.

Ariana ditched her trademark ponytail and debuted two, sexy hairstyles at KIIS FM’s Jingle Ball in December.
The sultry-voiced songstress tried her hand at several Christmas classics when she announced in November that she would be covering festive tunes — as well as releasing her own original songs — as a countdown to the holidays.
