One Direction took the stage in Stockholm, Sweden for their Take Me Home tour on May 8, where they paid tribute to a man who's a Swedish national treasure: Max Martin, writer and producer of some of the best pop songs ever recorded.

New artist Francesco is all of 17 and his big, wild 'n' curly hair walks into a room about a half-hour before he does. But this Canadian singer has the voice and the skills of a seasoned veteran. He's no joke! PopCrush has teamed up with the singer to exclusively premiere this video, where he covers Miguel's 'Adorn.'

Ariana Grande has received some flattering vocal comparisons to Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey lately, and while it's still too soon to say she deserves them, we can't fault her willingness to prove her pipes are real.
