Best Albums of 2016

Year-end lists are meant to be lively affairs, but the specter of death and sting of betrayal have cast a somber mood onto many of the best albums of 2016. We were gifted with final acts by David Bowie and Leonard Cohen, who passed away in the wake of Blackstar and You Want It Darker's releases, respectively. We also heard some unexpected final bars from the late Phife Dawg, as A Tribe Called Quest's first album in 18 years shot out of leftfield in November, at a time when much of the country was reeling from an altogether different form of grief.

Ruminations on mortality also trickled into the work of those artists who're still with us as 2016 draws to a close: Nick Cave's teenage son accidentally fell to his death during the recording of Skeleton Tree, while Lucinda Williams uses the death of her father as a catalyst to revisit childhood haunts in The Ghosts of Highway 20.

Elsewhere, focus shifts to broken trust and damaged relationships. Beyonc examines the emotional fallout of a cheating spouse on Lemonade and Gwen Stefani takes on a messy divorce in Is This What the Truth Feels Like. While grim details may surround a bevy of our picks for the 25 best albums of 2016, the silver lining, of course, is that out of darkness can be derived the most vibrant art. Josh Goller

Number #22

Gwen Stefani, This Is What the Truth Feels Like

As these pages have suggested before, the best Annie Lennox album isn't the Eurythmics's Touch or Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This), but the artist's first solo effort, the immaculately sustained 1992 mood piece Diva. Gwen Stefani's This Is What the Truth Feels Like follows a roundly failed attempt at rekindling No Doubt's early-aughts flame with 40 minutes of modern, commercially competitive and stylistically diverse pop. If Lennox's album moved away from the sharp synthesizers of the 1980s toward the moody atmospherics that would define pop in the following decade, Stefani's distances itself from the last No Doubt album's retro-leaning fetishism by embracing a kaleidoscopic electronic palette, one which more than justifies her individualist instincts.

Best of 2016: Favorite Celeb SnapchatAnd the Winner Is...

Congratulations, Gwen Stefani!

The No Doubt frontwoman has been crowned the Queen of Snapchat after thousands of votes came in for the Best of 2016: Favorite Celebrity Snapchat poll. Gwen beat out 15 other stars, who were all formidable opponents in the social media battle. From Kylie Jenner and Khloe Kardashian, to Gigi Hadid and Reese Witherspoon, the blonde beauty should feel "Hella Good" that her die-hard fans fought to make her the best snapper of them all.

So how did Gwen earn the title with over 90 percent of the vote? If we had to guess, it's because she's been so candid with her personal life over the past 12 months. After going through a divorce from rocker Gavin Rossdale then ultimately finding love again with country star Blake Shelton, it seems like Gwen's been the most open and honest she's ever been with her fans. 

The Grammy winner kicked off 2016 by promoting her third solo studio album, This Is What The Truth Feels Like, and let fans come along for the ride with exclusive snaps. Not to mention she often shares photos featuring her three cute sons, gives a behind-the-scenes look at her job as fashion mogul, and of course, gives us all the feels when she includes boyfriend Blake in her Snap stories.

Congrats again to Gwen!

The 100 best songs of 2016

Beyonc, Tegan and Sara, Fifth Harmony, Kanye West, and a couple tunes from Taylor Swift: EWs top tracks of the year

36. Gwen Stefani, Misery

Sit down, Gavin Rossdale. Never mind its misleading title; Misery is actually a new-love song Stefanis finger-snapping, utterly smitten plea to the new guy (you know, the tall one in the ten-gallon hat) she cant stand to be separated from for one more hot minute. L.G.

Bruno Mars with "24K Magic" is at number #35
Justin Timberlake with "Cant`Stop the Feeling" is at number #38


Its no surprise that the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election and President-elect Donald Trump, were the most searched frontrunners this year. Women also dominated the list with six out of the 10 spots filled with the likes of Gwen Stefani, Jodie Sweetin, Megyn Kelly and the Democratic presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton. Kim Kardashian-West took the year off from Breaking the Internet, which allowed Khloe, for the first time ever, to beat her sister as most-popular Kardashian on Yahoo. After being on the market for nearly a decade, the ever-popular role-play game, Roblox, also made an appearance on this years most searched list.


10 Best 'Saturday Night Live' Performances of 2016: Critic's Picks

It's been a notable year for Saturday Night Live, mostly marked by the political sketches leading up to November's presidential election. But what really held the live late-night sketch comedy show together in 2016 was its strong musical curation, which leaned mostly pop and hip-hop with a few scattered rock performances.

This year, we saw Bruno Mars lead an onstage dance party, a country-themed Lady Gaga showcase an entirely new style of music, and Solanges live debut on the show. We also watched our favorite artists engage in hilarious skits, like Drake dissing the cast of SNL in Drakes Beef and Kanye West mocking himself in the infamous Kyle vs. Kanye rap battle. When we look back on 2016, however, its the live music itself that stands out most, especially one special performance in honor of a hip-hop great who died this March.

Here are the top 10 musical performances on SNL this year, ranked. (Note: This includes episodes from the 2016 half of season 41, January through May, and the 2016 half of the current season, which began in October.)

9. Gwen Stefani

Like Pharrell Williams, Gwen Stefani doesnt seem to age, which leaves us wondering if the two are in cahoots. Looking and sounding better than ever, Stefani slayed the emotional tracks Make Me Like You (sup Blake Shelton) and Misery from her latest album, This Is What The Truth Feels Like. Heartache, starting over, falling in love: Stefani covered it all, and covered it well.

Norah says, Gwen Stefanis This is What the Truth Feels Like may just be her best album yet. Once again, she proves just why she is the queen of turning tragedy into tremendous success. She is a true role model of character and strength as she bares her emotions on this amazing piece of art!


James Corden has become a late-night talk show mainstay thanks to his simple yet ingenious sketch Carpool Karaoke. The host has landed countless names for his sing-alongs after landing pop diva Mariah Carey for the inaugural car ride, and 2016 was chock-full of some major gems.

While every Carpool Karaoke had its moments, there were definitely musicians (and celebrity cameos) who made their rides more memorable than others. Take a look at Billboard's top picks from the 2016 Carpool Karaokes below.

10. Justin Bieber Pt. 3

As Bieber and Corden proved twice in 2015, they have a camaraderie reminiscent of Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels' "Mockingbird" duet in Dumb and Dumber -- which is probably why the Biebs was one of the first guests to be invited back in 2016. If anything, the "big box, little box, cardboard box" part provides some serious laughs.

9. Chris Martin

Starting out with Coldplay's frontman hitchhiking his way to his Super Bowl halftime show rather than helping Corden get to work, it was easy to see that this was going to be a more off-the-wall Carpool Karaoke. The guys' conversations were as delightful as Martin's serenades on a mini keyboard, and the incorporation of the band's song "Yellow" is just too good.

8. Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas

What do you get when you put two longtime best friends in a car with a nosy talk show host? A few dirty little secrets, a sidewalk jam and some spectular harmonies. (Plus, if you didn't notice Jonas' comment about his brother Joe's band DNCE's song "Cake By The Ocean," do yourself a favor and go to 6:44.)

7. Selena Gomez

Gomez gets so into her own music that it almost seems like she jams to "Hands To Myself" and "Same Old Love" in her alone time. But that's what makes this ride so much fun, along with the McDonalds pit stop and the incorporation of rollercoaster karaoke.

6. Broadway featuring Lin-Manuel Miranda and more

Although this ride may be more enjoyable for those who are familiar with the musicals the songs are from, even the most anti-Broadway person will have their mind-blown by the notes hit during the Les Miserables number "One Day More."

5. Sia

The Australian has made us well aware that she has a powerhouse voice, but putting her in a small space like a car allows for her vocals to really shine. Sia's charisma and interactions with Corden makes their Carpool Karaoke the complete package. If only James could've gotten her to show her face...

4. Lady Gaga

Gaga went all-in for her trip with Corden, belting out every note and dancing along of her flamboyant songs -- even offering to drive when Corden mentions that she just passed her driver's test. Once Corden really felt inspired by the Gaga-ness, that's when the clip shot up to one of the top spots of the year.

3. Gwen Stefani (with cameos from George Clooney and Julia Roberts)

Stefani's bubbly personality and very singable songs made for an enjoyable first half of her Carpool Karaoke. But once Corden reached the carpool lane and enlisted Clooney and Roberts -- and they all chimed in for "Hollaback Girl" -- this ride was an instant classic.

2. Jennifer Lopez

Lopez threw it back to the beginnings of her career with her for majority of her time with Corden (you know, "Jenny From the Block" and "Love Don't Cost a Thing"), including a tribute to her Puerto Rican roots by singing one of her Spanish songs. The best part of the whole thing, though? That infamous text from Leonardo DiCaprio.

1. Adele 

This may be a cliche choice for the top pick, but after watching Adele and Corden's car ride just once you'll see that there's no denying it deserves the top spot this year (and probably for years to come). Putting two people with strong British accents in one vehicle is always going to amount to hilarity anyway, but a character like Adele is hard to beat. In addition to her incredible vocals, the "Hello" singer shared tales of her drunken mishaps, had a Spice Girls jam session with Corden and showed off her Nicki Minaj-like rap skills. How does a Carpool Karaoke masterpiece like that not trump them all?
