Miley Cyrus
NBC will air a two-hour special on Miley Cyrus' Bangerz tour next weekend. Cyrus announced the news on Facebook, saying that the network "is bringing #BANGERZTour straight to your living room! Catch the 2 hour behind the scenes concert special on July 6 at 9pm/8pm CT!"

British pop singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran will guest host American Top 40 this weekend, filling in for Ryan Seacrest. In addition to counting down the top 40 songs, Sheeran will discuss his new album X, some of his recent collaborations and more.

The 27th annual ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Awards were handed out on Thursday night, with songwriter/producer Mike Will Made It named Songwriter of the Year, according to Billboard. Warner/Chappell was named Publisher of the Year. The ceremony in Los Angeles also paid tribute to Jermaine Dupri with the Founders Award, and Ne-Yo, with the Golden Note Award.

Congratulations to Pop singer Vanessa Carlton, who announced online yesterday that her upcoming album has been delayed because she is expecting her first child with husband John McCauley (frontman of the band Deer Tick). Her next album, titled Liberman, will be out at some point in 2015.
