Welcome to the latest episode of the Billboard.com Pop Shop Podcast, Billboard’s weekly half-hour audio breakdown of the Billboard charts, hottest music news and year’s biggest musical events. Casual pop fans and chart junkies can hear Billboard.com associate editor Jason Lipshutz and Billboard associate director of charts Keith Caulfield every Thursday 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).
Jason and Keith were at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards and recorded this special post-show podcast immediately after the ceremony had ended! The guys share a ton of behind-the-scenes action on this special Pop Shop Podcast, from Keith talking to One Direction to the vibe during Kanye West’s messy closing performance to red carpet chats with Iggy Azalea, Meghan Trainor, Ed Sheeran and many more. The guys also break down the best performances of the evening — including Tori Kelly, Wiz Khalifa, Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea and Mariah Carey — and (try to) answer some of the burning questions about the ceremony, including a big one about Fifth Harmony. There’s also Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” video and big night, the cast of Empire, Van Halen, Little Big Town and much more to discuss.
