At the annual BMI Awards, where they honor the best in songwriting, the red carpet is always a party within a party. And that's just talking about Blake Shelton.
Tuesday evening, the country superstar elicited laughs when waxing philosophical (kind of) about his sudden burst in popularity, after a decade-and-a-half of slogging away.

Coldplay paid tribute to the late Amy Winehouse Wednesday night during a concert in Los Angeles to benefit the Grammy Foundation. Proceeds from the evening will support high school music education programs through the Grammy Foundation's "Grammy in the Schools" charity.
During the band's encore, singer Chris Martin surprised the audience by slyly launching into Winehouse's signature tune, "Rehab." The British quartet then segued into its own 2005 hit, "Fix You."
It was a poignant moment as the crowd sang along with Martin on the chorus, "Lights will guide you home, and ignite your bones, and I will try to fix you."
