In his short five-year career, Jason Derulo has proven to be a contender with pop music’s biggest hitters, and his rise to fame isn’t slowing down. His past single, “Talk Dirty” (ft. 2 Chainz), is his most successful track to date, having sold more than six million singles worldwide. The music video for it has garnered nearly 200 million views on YouTube. Derulo’s career started when he was 16 years old and began writing hits for the likes of Lil Wayne, Pitbull, Diddy, Sean Kingston, Cassie and Danity Kane. Now 24 years old, the Miami native has since received nods from the TEEN CHOICE AWARDS, the MTV Europe Music Awards, the MOBO Awards and the BMI Pop Awards. His career-defining hits include “Whatcha Say,” “In My Head,” “Ridin’ Solo,” “Don’t Wanna Go Home” and “It Girl.” After suffering a catastrophic neck injury in 2012, Derulo released his comeback record, “The Other Side,” in 2013. It became radio’s No. 1 most-added record of the year.

Snoop Dogg is a multi-Platinum artist and entertainment icon. With more than 20 years in the music industry, Snoop’s ability to stay at the forefront of popular culture and new technology through hit records, brand partnerships, innovative digital strategies, philanthropy and more, has resulted in unwavering relevance.

    So we have to sit through that insufferable “Wiggle” song? Like the stupidest most idiotic song ever recorded. Looks like DVR time with a fast forward through that…

    Did I read it right that voting is only online now?

    I think the dancers are paired with partners in their own style this week only. This is a variation of the usual “Meet the Top 20″showcase episode which sometimes had trios and quartets. The following week they’ll get their “permanent” partner, probably in a different style.
