Posted: 19 May 2014 11:05 PM PDT

The music app's annual Sounds Of Summer playlist has been released and it looks good.

Music app Shazam has unveiled its predictions for the hit songs of this summer, with British artiste Ed Sheeran's single Sing set to be blaring out of the radio for the next few months.

Based on the national music charts and the most-Shazamed songs of the year so far, the annual "Sounds Of Summer" list is well-known for accurately predicting hits. So here is a sneak peak at the tunes we'll all be dancing to:

1. Ed Sheeran, Sing

With one million Shazams and counting, Sheeran's Pharrell-produced track is set to make the British singer an even bigger success.

2. Ariana Grande featuring Iggy Azalea, Problem

This collaboration featuring one of the hottest rappers of the moment is proving to be huge with Shazam users.

3. Sam Smith, Stay With Me

The guest vocalist for Naughty Boy and Disclosure has been Shazamed over 15 million times to date.

4. Luke Bryan, Play It Again

The undoubted country hit of the year, this single is currently number one in Shazam's Country chart.

5. Nico & Vinz, Am I Wrong

Following huge success in Europe, listeners in the US are starting to really get into this song.

6. Oliver Heldens, Gecko

Oliver Heldens is the latest Euro-house sensation, and the new vocal version of Gecko seems to be taking this underground hit over-ground.

7. Clean Bandit, Rather Be

Shazamed nearly 10 million times, this is the most Shazamed track in the world but could go even bigger with more US radio play.

8. Secondcity, I Wanna Feel

Set to be a number one hit when released on May 25, this dance track has a big summer ahead.

9. Teeflii featuring 2 Chainz, 24 Hours

Produced by the unstoppable DJ Mustard and featuring the always popular 2 Chainz, this track hasn't even released officially but has already been Shazamed 100,000 times.

10. 5 Seconds Of Summer, Don't Stop

This Australian band is tipped for One Direction levels of success this year and the signs indicate this track could help them get there. — AFP Relaxnews

Jennifer Lopez wears familiar-looking outfit at BMA

Posted: 19 May 2014 01:20 AM PDT

Check out what some celebrities wore at the recent 2014 Billboard Music Awards.

The 2014 Billboard Music Awards was held recently at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada and saw a string of singers, rappers, musicians, bands, models, actors and er, Billy Ray Cyrus attending the event.

Jennifer Lopez, Pitbull and Brazilian singer Claudia Leitte kicked things off with a song called We Are One (Ole Ola), which is the World Cup 2014 theme. Before that, though, Lopez walked the red carpet with boyfriend Casper Smart in a familiar-looking outfit.

Wearing a sheer red Donna Karan dress – with flawless hair and makeup to boot – Lopez worked the look like the pro that she is. However, if you've been following J.Lo's style and fashion "career", you might remember her wearing a similar-looking green dress way back in 2000 that got a lot of negative attention.

Versace vs Donna Karan: Did Jennifer Lopez try to undo a fashion mistake made way back in 2000 with this sheer red dress?      

Don't get us wrong, we love the updated Donna Karan version. We just wonder if Lopez would re-hash other old looks in the near future...

But back to the Billboard Awards. Here are some of our top looks and a handful of our "what-was-she/he-thinking" pictures from the event.

DON'T go all out and wear a gigantic chain around your neck (even if your name is 2 Chainz) to get attention. It's bad for the neck and posture. DO go bare – on the face and body – like Nicki Minaj (but remember to stay classy, girls).

DON'T be like Charli XCX and wear your nasty-looking nightie out of the house. Also, a hairbrush/comb is one of life's greatest grooming tools. Use it.   

DO turn up polished and clean like Kesha, even though her look this time around did not really suit the event.

DO go easy on the makeup like Iggy Azalea.

DON'T be like this guy (Billy Ray Cyrus). EVER.

We sort of like this look on Kylie Jenner (she's 16 so she can get away with that crazy hair), but DON'T wear laced-up shoes like these if you have big feet. Unless you actually want your feet to look bigger.
