Has there been any contestant on a singing or dancing TV competition that has performed something "nerdy", such as songs from video games, cartoons, or Internet media? The one example I can think of is a Dancing with the Stars routine to Super Mario.
So, a while ago, Anne Hathaway rapped on Conan. She said that it is "in the style of Lil' Wayne". Not knowing anything about Lil' Wayne, is there a particular song of his that sounds like hers? I google some of his songs, but, again, not knowing anything about him, I don't know if she's referring to a particular song. The few that I listened to briefly didn't really bear much resemblance. Thanks for helping me answer this critical question!
So, after decades of basically ignoring them, I'm finally getting into the spirit of enjoying classic Christmas songs. But I don't know much about them. I know many of them have been covered literally hundreds of times. As a starting point, I'd like to better understand which versions of popular Christmas songs have been MOST popular over time.

Is there a kid-friendly portal to pop music videos? She is not satisfied by Kid Disney and she wants to listen to the "latest" hits. She begs us to let her watch music videos on YouTube, but she's not ready to be let loose on that yet. So where can we let her browse and watch "current" videos with not too much bad stuff?

At 2:15 of this brief clip, the interviewer asks Elvis Costello if he wants to defend what he'd said in Newsweek about Boston (the band, I'm pretty sure, given her exchange with Nick Lowe starting at 1:58). I've been unable to figure out on the Google just what was said about Boston; can you tell me?

Looking for a link I saw a while back (maybe a year agoish?), it may have been posted on the blue but I'm not sure. It was something like the 50 (100?) best parts of songs ever. It described the best ~10 second long sections from songs. [more inside]
