The VMAs were on tonight. No big surprises except for Cher presenting the Video of the Year award to Lady Gaga. There really was no controversy and everyone’s talking about how much the VMAs sucked this year (everyone says this every year btw). I wonder if Fuse could do a better job. At least the MuchMusic Awards once had Arcade Fire on . Check out the videos of the full performances from tonight below:

Every year the VOODOO EXPERIENCE has one of the most diverse artist line-ups of any musical event in America–an unbeatable mix of what’s cutting edge, iconic and traditional (New Orleans) that pays tribute to the music of the region. This year VOODOO–October 29, 30 and 31 at City Park in New Orleans–is even more musically expansive than before.

The two main Voodoo Ritual stages line-up will now include The Whigs, White Rabbits, Dead Confederate, River City Extension, Miracle at St. Anna, O’ Brother, SPEAK and Michael Tolcher. This year’s VOODOO will once again celebrate the amazing list of electronic talent with the reintroduction of the VOODOO dance space, Le Plur, which was dormant since 2004. VOODOO’s expanded electronic celebration will now include Kelis, the Crystal Method, Kaskade and Swiss Chriss. They join the previously announced Deadmau5, Paul van Dyk, Ferry Corsten and Die Antwoord, among others.

“As we were putting together the line-up for this year’s VOODOO, we found such a large amount of talent in the electronic world that we knew this was the right time to bring it back,” says VOODOO EXPERIENCE founder and producer Stephen Rehage. “VOODOO has always been about discovery and this year’s line-up represents every kind of music imaginable.”

And the music will never stop for those interested in exploring the New Orleans musical landscape, with official VOODOO After Dark parties already confirmed at legendary venues throughout the city including One Eyed Jacks, d.b.a, House of Blues, Republic New Orleans, The Howlin Wolf and Tipitinas Uptown.

In anticipation of the band’s debut record, It’ll Be Better (Cantora Records, July 20th), Francis and the Lights have released the world’s first HTML5 embeddable album, specifically designed for the iPad and the brand new iOS4. Developed exclusively by Muxtape’s Justin Ouellette, fans can stream the record, watch the video for “Darling, It’s Alright”, and download tracks directly from iTunes – using nothing more than fingertips to experience the content. The HTML5 album can also be embedded and streamed anywhere on the web. It’s all free and seamless, simply by visiting www.itllbebetter.com.

Along with their debut album, Franics and the Lights have also written and produced a song for Drake’s recently released debut, Thank Me Later, titled Karaoke. Drake personally requested a beat, and being a true fan, Francis decided to make use of a special song he had been saving. Francis recorded and arranged it in one night and sent it over with the message, “do whatever is best for the song.” Drake brilliantly re-worked the lyrics, making it deeply personal and added a rap verse. The song was cut and mixed by 40, Drake’s engineer, in Jamaica the following day.

The band is currently taking a short break after a two month long tour with Drake before heading back out to support the psych-pop duo, MGMT. The string of dates starting July 15th will see the band travel up the west coast from San Diego to Vancouver. The tour will end in New York City at Radio City Music Hall.
