“Less is more” was the takeaway of the 2019 American Music Awards.

The night celebrated the years most popular songs and artists, but it was the oldies that made the show resonate with audiences both inside the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles and watching worldwide.

There was plenty of nostalgia going around starting with Kesha’s first performance in 6 years that included her latest single “Raising Hell” but also her 2011 hit “Tik Tok.”

She was finally granted permission to sing her old songs following a public battle with Sony and producer Dr. Luke.

The crowd also had warm reactions to these oldies but goodies: “Green Day’s 1994 “Basket Case,” Toni Braxton’s 1996 “Unbreak My Heart,” and Shania Twain’s 1997 classic “I Feel Like a Woman.”

Plenty of statements were also made at the AMAs as artists proved that they were no longer afraid to stand up to the status quo.

The biggest statements of the night came from the three pop powerhouses, Taylor Swift, Halsey, and Kesha.

All three ladies aimed their jabs at the music industry.

Halsey’s powerful speech shaded the GRAMMY Awards following her absence from the nominees that were announced early last week.

“I am so thankful to the AMA’s because they are the world’s largest fan-voted awards show,” she said emphasizing the fan aspect.

‘Nancy Drew’ Season 2 Trailer Teases New Mystery, Same Thrills

Published

Nancy Drew Season 2: A New Mystery

In case it wasn’t made clear on Nancy Drew Season 1, Maine has a bit of a ghost problem. 

That ghost problem continues into season 2 on as Nancy and her Scooby Gang (Drew Crew) embark on a brand new mystery. 

The series returns Wednesday, January 20 — finally! — following a COVID-19 production hiatus. 

Best ‘Nancy Drew’ Season 1 Twists

In the first trailer promoting the return,  Nancy finds herself smack-dab in the middle of the mystery because as the saying goes, “where there’s smoke…”

The Drew Crew’s latest case involves a woman who uttered Nancy Drew’s name before she was attacked and lost consciousness. 

“How do you have the bandwidth for another mystery?” George (Leah Lewis) asks Nancy, but that’s clearly rhetorical… has she even met Nancy?!

But they obviously haven’t forgotten all about the Aglaeca curse (which claimed the life of Nancy’s bae, Owen) as Bess (Maddison Jaizani) exclaims: “Death can come to us at any moment.”

QUIZ: Which ‘Nancy Drew’ Character Are You?

Their adventures bring the Drew Crew to a deserted school bus where Nancy warns them to “stay calm,” adding, “It cannot find us if we’re not afraid.” But surely, that’s easier said than done as “it” is right on their trail. 

And don’t worry — the season continues to amp up the scares with terrifying ghosts and monsters appearances that’ll scare the bejeezus out of you. 

Watch the trailer below:

Catch the return of Nancy and crew on  Wednesday, Jan. 20 at 9/8c.

Queen's Gambit Causes Major Spike in Chess Board Sales

Queen’s Gambit is taking the chess world by storm.

In a case of art influences life, sales of chess boards have skyrocketed thanks to the Netflix limited series. 

The series, set in the 1950s, trails the rise of a young orphan, Beth Harmon (Anya Taylor-Joy), who finds chess to be an outlet, leading her to become a female prodigy. 

Spin Master, a Toronto-based toy merchant, said that chess sales have increased by “triple digits” since the show’s premiere on October 23. 

Goliath Games has also noted a surge of more than 1,000 percent, NPR notes. 

“Our October sales for chess were up 178% over the same period last year,” Mary Higbe, director of marketing at Goliath Games, said. “That’s a big increase. But something else unexpected happened at the end of the month. Now, she says, “our chess sales are up 1,048%.

EBay has made similar findings, reporting a 215 percent spike in sales of chess sets.

Will this make finding a Christmas present harder?

Toy analyst Gerrick Johnnson told NPR: “Good luck finding a chess set this holiday!”

The popularity also extends to groups such as the US Chess Federation, which revealed that membership also jumped for the first time since the onset of the pandemic.
