When “indie” pop sensation fun. was announced as Best New Artist at this year’s Grammy Awards, something literally didn’t add up right.
The question going through many heads was — or very well should have been — “How does a band that’s been around for over a decade be declared the Best New Artist for 2013?”
In fact, the artists behind Fun. would probably be the first ones to propose that question. The only stronger proponents of the other solid yet shortchanged nominees for Best New Artist were the award winners themselves.

With the 55th Grammy Awards commencing at 8 p.m. tonight, senior music reporter Chris Calabrese predicts who he believes is most apt to bring home a gilded gramophone in the most prominent categories:
1. Record of the Year
“Lonely Boy” was the first single off of The Black Keys’ most recent album, “El Camino.” The production was certainly experimental, as the entire album was co-written and produced by hip-hop beat man Danger Mouse. The team created an interesting sound and I would like to see them win, but I think the award is going to “We Are Young” by the indie pop band, Fun. The way that the album was written and recorded tames the band’s colorful sound in the best way possible. The piano ballad quickly turns into a tribal chorus, with synthesized bass and stadium rock guitar chords. It’s an epic anthem seemingly written on a drunken walk home.

The Grammys have always been one of music’s biggest nights, honoring the best of the best in all genres.
But when looking over the nominees for this year, it seems the Recording Academy, the organization in charge of choosing the winners for the Grammys, honored more of radio’s top hits rather than taking an expansive look at the industry.
While the success of Fun. is deserving of recognition in this year’s award show, the abundance of nominations the band has received — six in total — is a bit excessive. With only two relevant singles — “We Are Young” and “Some Nights” — propelling the album’s popularity, the rest of the album is mediocre at best and not very deserving of an Album of the Year nod.
Hunter Hayes opens up at the Bryce Jordan Center for Carrie Underwood Tuesday night.

If Carrie Underwood hadn’t taken “one stupid decision” to audition for “American Idol” eight years ago, she might have been a journalist instead of a country music star who blew away a packed Bryce Jordan Center last night.
Underwood said she was honored to be back at the BJC as part of her 2012 “Blown Away” with recent Country Music Association Award winner Hunter Hayes.
Hayes wowed the crowd, consisting of all age groups who were screaming “I love you Hunter,” with his hits “Wanted,” “Storm Warning,” and a cover of Bruno Mars’ “Just the Way You Are.”
In this file photo, Hunter Hayes plays the piano during his opening performance of Carrie Underwood's "Blown Away Tour" at the Bryce Jordan Center on Nov. 14, 2012.

Country music fans at Penn State are waiting to get “Blown Away” by Carrie Underwood’s performance at 7:30 tonight at the Bryce Jordan Center.
Underwood is stopping by the BJC for the second time since 2010 as part of her 2012 “Blown Away” tour and is bringing special guest Hunter Hayes with her.
Jess Sharon saw Underwood at her concert last Friday in Atlantic City and said Underwood donated all proceeds from her concert to New Jersey communities affected by Hurricane Sandy.

Entertainer of the Year:
Tuesday, May 1, 2012 12:00 am
Previously playing to a nearly sold-out crowd two years ago, the Bryce Jordan Center announced today that country songstress and “American Idol” winner Carrie Underwood will return to State College on Nov. 13.
Exactly two years after her previous BJC tour stop, the scheduled date is a part of Underwood’s “The Blown Away Tour,” which will promote her newest album release of the same name. Underwood announced her tour today during an appearance on “Good Morning America.”

It's only two meets into the season, and the Penn State women's track and field athletes have already qualified for the NCAA national championships in five events.
And in those two meets, junior Shavon Greaves has qualified in four of those events.
Greaves, in her third year of eligibility, contributed a great deal to the Nittany Lions' success Saturday, putting up NCAA qualifying times in both the 60-meter and 200-meter races in the first meet of the season, while posting a qualifying 400-meter time Saturday.

New players, new formations, new hurdles to clear before today's kickoff
By Tim Ford, Justin Kunkel and Sirage Yassin
When Michael Robinson left the field after his team thumped Michigan State on Senior Day at Beaver Stadium, he was ready to keep going. He lost weight. He's practiced exclusively at the quarterback position everyday since that game.
Popular music takes over television screen
Friday, October 30, 1998 12:00 am
Music stores are being invaded ... by television.
From a collection of pop and alternative music to an album of rock classics to an upcoming concept album featuring some of the biggest names in the music industry, music stores are now stocking their shelves with one of the newer trends in the entertainment world: television soundtracks.
Ever since "Friends" propelled its theme song, "I'll Be There for You," into heavy radio play, prime-time television has taken on a whole new sound. No longer just trite introductory themes played by studio musicians, prime time has become something of a showcase for popular music. A whole slew of shows geared at a younger audience have hit the small screen with catchy pop music in tow.

Astros, Reds favorites in weak division
You could call it parity. But in the current sports vernacular, "parity" equals "a bunch of mediocre teams, any of which could put off being mediocre long enough to win the division title."
So with the exception of Pittsburgh, any team in the NL Central could earn the right to become playoff fodder for the Braves.

Hill, Miller off to Junior Olympics
Sue Hill is going to win, while Wendy Miller thinks she's going on vacation.
Actually, these two members of the women's fencing team are travelling to Portland, Ore., this weekend to participate in the Under-20 Junior Olympics Championships. This tournament will feature the top women's fencers in the country at this age group. Even though the competition promises to be rough, neither fencer seems too awed by the opposition, and neither does head coach Beth Alphin.
