It's 10AM on April 1, 2014. The duo behind MKTO, Malcolm Kelley and Tony Oller, are jet-lagged and exhausted, but really, really, excited.
Fresh off an electric performance of 'Wild Wild Love' with Pitbull on 'Today,' the ladies of G.R.L. were bubbly, candid and as sweet as you'd hope they'd be when we caught up with them. Despite the magnitude of their live TV appearance, they lit up the stage. The secret behind their calm demeanor? Pitbull himself!
Meeting the Vamps is probably just like you'd imagine it would be, but better: awesome, memorable and ridiculous (in a good way). When PopCrush sat down to chat with Bradley, James, Tristan and Connor at their record label's office while they were in town for a New York gig, we literally had to stifle laughter as they answered our questions, since this was all being filmed and we didn't want to mess up the sound on the video.

Years ago, if you would have asked Neon Trees' Tyler Glenn what he wanted to be when he grew up, his answer would not have been a musician.

DJ Afrojack is a towering presence, both off the stage and on. Off the stage, he’s 26-year-old Nick van de Wall, an easy-going Dutch born man who stands well over six feet tall and admits to being a fan of PlayStation role playing games. As DJ Afrojack, his personality and persona is bigger than the thousands and thousands of fans that fill the hottest nightclubs and EDM festivals just to hear him perform.
Give Vance Joy's breakout hit, 'Riptide,' one listen and we guarantee you'll be hooked.
When we chatted with James Keogh, the man behind the moniker, we weren't surprised to find that he is just as charming as his song
