So at the end of each week, we’re rounding up all the buzziest, news-worthy headlines you might have missed. Think of it like the “saved” feature on Instagram but for news instead of aesthetically pleasing photos. Lil Nas X anticipates his comeback, Snoop Dogg is going to the 2024 Olympics, and the Saltburn song stuck in everyone’s heads is charting—this is what you missed.
Snoop Dogg Is Going To The 2024 Summer Olympic Games
What can’t Snoop do? The rapper is set to bring his unique and colorful commentary to the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris as part of NBCUniversal’s coverage. Building on his previous stint during the 2021 Tokyo Olympics, the rapper will deliver regular reports on competitions and events for the Olympics primetime show, starting from July 26 on both NBC and Peacock.
Lil Nas X Is Highly Anticipating His Comeback
Saying he is going to have the “greatest comeback of all time”, Lil Nas X is setting high expectations for his next release. Being in his self-acclaimed ‘Christian-era’ this new year, he is planning for a song and visual set to be released next week. We can positively say we are ready for this long-awaited comeback.
The Song We Can’t Stop Thinking About Since ‘Saltburn’
Sophie Ellis-Bextor really did something with this one. The song that was originally released in 2001 has risen back to the top of the charts thanks to the release of Saltburn. The phenomenon of older songs gaining popularity through film or TV exposure is not new, as seen with examples like Kate Bush’s “Running Up That Hill” in “Stranger Things” – we all know how long that lasted. Sophie is surprised at the song finding a new audience, stating it feels “magical” to see it making new memories for people.
The Return Of The King
Elvis Presley will be making a virtual return to the stage through “Elvis Evolution”; an immersive concert experience utilizing AI and holographic projection. Premiering in London in November, the show, developed by Layered Reality in collaboration with Authentic Brands Group, incorporates thousands of personal photos and home-video footage of Elvis. The performance aims to recreate the experience of seeing Elvis live, featuring a life-sized digital representation of the iconic musician singing his legendary songs. Additional shows are planned for Las Vegas, Tokyo, and Berlin. “Elvis Evolution” is described as a groundbreaking tribute that blurs the lines between reality and fantasy, allowing fans to engage actively in the celebration of Elvis Presley’s musical legacy.
Spice Girls Will Be Traveling Far To Celebrate Their 30th
If you wanna be my lover, you gotta get with my stamps. The Spice Girls’ upcoming 30th anniversary will be commemorated with a special Royal Mail stamp collection. The 12-stamp set will highlight significant live performances from the iconic girl band’s career, both as a group and individually. Featured performances include the 1997 BRIT Awards, the closing ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games, Victoria Beckham’s solo performance during the Return of the Spice Girls Tour in 2008, and Emma Bunton’s solo performance at Wembley Stadium in 1998. The stamp collection follows similar tributes to music acts like Iron Maiden and The Rolling Stones. While there have been hints of a possible Spice Girls reunion for their 30th anniversary, no specific plans have been confirmed, but we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed.
