Questlove producing VH1 concert series 'SoundClash'

It’s not enough that Questlove and his Tonight Show house band The Roots host some of the biggest names in music every week, or that the drummer and his group routinely play some of the world’s most storied venues themselves. Now Questlove is going to produce a television concert series for VH1 and Palladia, too.

Titled SoundClash, the series will place three diverse artists at varying levels of fame on the same stage, at the same time, to perform their current hits, covers, and collaborations in front of a live studio audience. Hosted by DJ/producer Diplo, the series kicks off July 23 (9 p.m. ET on VH1 and Palladia) with performances by Fall Out Boy, Lil Wayne, and up-and-coming trip-hop group London Grammar. Episode 2, airing July 30, will feature Ed Sheeran, Sia, and emerging rockers Grouplove. READ FULL STORY

Timber-fans rejoice! NBC announced that Justin Timberlake has booked a whole week of appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.

Beginning March 11, the actor-producer-singer-honorary comedian will perform each night of the week. On Monday and Friday, he’ll sit down with Fallon — presumably to talk about the March 19 release of The 20/20 Experience, which just might redefine which Instagram filter we use to watch music.

Can we assume The Roots will be the backing band? Can we assume that ?uestlove will do a dreamy-smooth spin on JT’s new dreamy-smooth songs? Can we assume that there will be at least one sketch that involves Justin as the newest footman in Downton Sixbey?

We can’t assume, but we can dream.
