ABOUT OUR MUSICAL GUESTS
Lauded by The New York Times as “one of the most important pop artists of the last decade,” and by Rolling Stone as “one of the few genuine rock stars we’ve got these days,” singer/songwriter Taylor Swift is a seven-time GRAMMY winner, and is the youngest winner in history of the music industry’s highest honor, the GRAMMY for Album of the Year. She is the only female artist in music history (and just the fourth artist ever) to twice have an album hit the 1 million first-week sales figure, and is the first artist since the Beatles (and the only female artist in history) to log six or more weeks at #1 with three consecutive studio albums. Time Magazine has named Taylor one of the 100 most influential people in the world, and she is Billboard’s current Artist of the Year, as well as their youngest-ever Woman of the Year. With record sales in excess of 26 million albums and 75 million song downloads worldwide, this music and fashion icon could not be more perfectly poised to rock the Victoria’s Secret runway. Taylor is currently on the road with her RED Tour, headlining stadiums and arenas around the globe.
Fall Out Boy
Hot on the heels of their second sold-out tour of 2013, Fall Out Boy is taking their trademark style from arenas to the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show runway. The Midwest’s own fab four—Patrick Stump (vocals/guitar), Pete Wentz (bass), Joe Trohman (guitar) and Andy Hurley (drums)—has graced the cover of Rolling Stone and performed on Saturday Night Live, The Today Show, America’s Got Talent, The Voice, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Conan, The Late Show with David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel Live and many more. Their fifth studio album, SAVE ROCK AND ROLL, debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top 200 and #1 on iTunes in 27 countries when it was released in April. It features the multiplatinum hit “My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up)” and the new hit “Alone Together.” The GRAMMY-nominated band’s second #1 debut, “Infinity On High,” topped the chart in 2007.
A Great Big World
This New York-based singer-songwriting duo, featuring Ian Axel and Chad Vaccarino, has made quite an impact with their breakout hit “Say Something,” which recently climbed to the #1 spot on iTunes after an emotional performance of the song with Christina Aguilera on “The Voice.” In January 2013, their viral hit “This Is the New Year,” solidified them as an indie pop presence with staggering YouTube views and was covered by the cast of “Glee.” The duo gained support from fans by crafting a six-song EP funded entirely on Kickstarter, which led them to sign with Black Magnetic/Epic Records. Known for their positive, piano-driven pop songs and heartwarming lyrics, A Great Big World’s debut full-length album “Is There Anybody Out There?” is available for pre-order and will feature both the original and Christina Aguilera version of “Say Something."
Forget synchronized dance routines and matching dresses. These four young women from London, Suffolk and Scotland—Shereen, Asami, Jess and Amira—are blazing a trail of their own. Their debut single, “Trouble,” dabbles with rap, dance and pop… all tied together with a lot of attitude. As for their live performance, forget the girlie moves. “We’re not polished at all,” says Jess. “We’re very raw.” Like everything Neon Jungle does, their live shows are full-on and they’re excited to be making their U.S. performance and TV debut on the runway of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, fresh from touring the UK with Jessie J. Neon Jungle is currently working on their first studio album.
