It may have been a looong Grammy Awards, but it was only more reason to keep the party going after the show ended. The stars got to mix and mingle with their fellow musicians at the Sony BMG Party, making for some predictable (and a few unlikely) pairings. Nicole and Joel were looking a little worn out, while Beyonce was practically glowing in yellow next to John Mayer, making her fourth outfit change of the night. Which B outfit was your favorite? Also, is it just us, or did John look a little too pretty-boy last night? Carrie Underwood naturally gravitated toward country star Brad Paisley, while Jay-Z looked absolutely thrilled to be posing with Chris Daughtry. We just wish we could eavesdrop on a few of their conversations, although something tell us that Amy Winehouse's performance was a hot topic across the board.
Tons more pics including Michelle Williams, Lil Mama, Natasha Bedingfield, and many others if you read more
While the Super Bowl was the main event of the weekend, it wouldn't be February without a new awards show at every turn. This Saturday it was the producers' turn to be honored, and there were plenty of celebs on hand to help them. Casey Affleck and Ellen Page had the opportunity to perfect their red carpet looks before the Academy Awards. Diane Lane upgraded her look from the SAGs, and once again her man Josh Brolin's movie, No Country For Old Men, took home the honors for best feature film. It's been winning award after award, which is making the movie's Oscar odds look good.

What do Chris Daughtry, Debra Messing, Natalie Portman, Stanley Tucci and Marisa Tomei have in common? Well besides being celebrities, they are all part of the new Barilla Celebrity Italian Table cookbook. The five famous faces contributed their favorite pasta dishes, which were then recreated by Mario Batali. They were then given special treatment by party planner David Tutera. The end result is six stunning menus — Batali also put together his own — and party plans for each of them.
The best part about the book is that it's absolutely free. That's right you can preview it online or download your own copy. For each copy downloaded, Barilla will donate $1, up to $100,000, to America's Second Harvest. So what are you waiting for?
The men kept it pretty boring for last night's American Music Awards in LA. Seriously, not a single color among 'em? It almost makes Taye's business casual khaki pants look daring, almost. Lenny looked sexy, as he does, while Akon was dressed for the tundra. Is it just me or does he look perpetually cold because of those huge jackets? Thankfully the women were there to spice up the red carpet and add some shimmer and shine, because by themselves the men weren't taking any chances. Maybe next red carpet Seacrest should try out some color? Something nice and bright, perhaps in velvet? Just a simple request. Check out the full list of the night's winners here.
To see a ton more of the guys including Akon, James Blunt, Slash, Chris Brown, Chris Daughtry, Taye, Tony Hawk and others just read more
Pouring rain could not stop Ashley Judd from celebrating her husband Dario Franchitti's big win at the Indy 500 this weekend. Despite being in a soaked sundress Ashley climbed the pit wall to join Dario in the middle of his victory lap. Tons of stars were there to watch the celebration as well even though the rain was so bad the race had to be cut short to 415 miles! The Grey's men were totally representing and it look like Chris Daughtry gave a rockin' performance with his band as usual. Although we're sad to say it looks like Chris is sporting guyliner again. Do you think guyliner is sexy?
Lots more pics including David Letterman, Chris Daughtry, Eric Dane, Patrick Dempsey, Ludacris and more so just read more
There's some discontent in "American Idol"-land as we head into tonight's country-themed performances. Though "Idol" still beats everything else on TV, its ratings are down significantly from previous years, and considering that this season's biggest highlight has been a weird crying girl, I'm not entirely surprised.
Simon Cowell, the man who can make or break an "Idol" hopeful's chances, finally weighed in on this lackluster season for a recent Entertainment Weekly cover story, and he blamed the fact that several recent contestants who didn't win "Idol" have found success. Said Simon:
"I think that we suffer from Jennifer Hudson- and Chris Daughtry-itis, which is people who didn't win getting great careers and now a lot of the contestants believing it absolutely doesn't matter.
Does Daughtry-itis involve constantly feeling like there's a Live cover band playing in your head? If so, I think I had it last season.
Anyway, I see Simon's point; J. Hud has an Oscar, after all, and Chris Daughtry had a No. 1 album this year that's still in the top 10. But I think I have a cure for Daughtry-itis — three cures, actually, named Kelly, Carrie and Fantasia — so read more
The 21st annual National Girls & Women In Sports Day (NGWSD) will take place on February 7, 2007 - The theme for NGWSD 2007 is "Throw Like a Girl, Lead Like a Champion."
Originally, NGWSD was established in 1986 to celebrate the achievements of girls and women in sports and to honor Flo Hyman, a member of the 1984 Olympic silver medal volleyball team who died suddenly while competing in Japan in 1986.
The day also serves to recognize the positive influence of sports participation and the continuing struggle for equality and access for women in sports.
It's celebrated in all 50 states with community-based events, award ceremonies, and activities to honor the achievements and encourage participation of girls and women in sports.
How awesome is that? You can find an activity or event in your state - and not all the events are on Feb 7.
This is a great way to raise awareness about women's sports, and to get young girls excited about it early enough, so they can continue staying active and healthy for the rest of their lives.
Also wanted to let you know the American Idol rocker Chris Daughtry is a fan of Women's Hoops!!! He will be playing a free concert in Greensboro, North Carolina on March 23rd to kick off the Women's NCAA Basketball Championship. Sounds like it will be a rockin' good time.
