Welcome to the latest episode of the Billboard.com Pop Shop Podcast, Billboard’s weekly audio breakdown of the Billboard charts, hottest music news and year’s biggest musical events. Casual pop fans and chart junkies can hear Billboard co-director of charts Keith Caulfield and Billboard.com senior editor Katie Atkinson every Tuesday on the free Pop Shop Podcast, which can be streamed on Billboard.com or downloaded in iTunes (click here to listen to the previous episode on Billboard.com).
This week’s show is our very special Grammys 2016 preview, and we were joined by third-time nominee (and all-time awesome guy) Josh Groban. The superstar talks about his current Grammy nom (best traditional pop vocal album for Stages, which also has a new live CD/DVD out), his upcoming tour with Sarah McLachlan, and how he’ll be hitting the Broadway stage later this year. Plus, Keith and Katie make their predictions for the big four categories at the Grammy Awards and which performances they are looking forward to on the show, which airs Monday, Feb. 15, on CBS at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
But it’s not all Grammys, all the time: We also discuss Beyonce‘s new single “Formation” and her performance with Coldplay and Bruno Mars at the Super Bowl, plus new No. 1s for both Zayn Malik and Rihanna.
