The bash featured too many memorable moments to mention but here are a number of highlights we've selected to whet your appetite in advance of the show:

Jones saluting Albert King with a rendition of "Born Under a Bad Sign." -- Carole King toasting Lou Adler with a performance of "So Far Away." -- Oprah Winfrey making a surprise appearance to induct Quincy Jones. -- Usher paying tribute to Jones with a performance of the late Michael Jackson's "Rock with You." -- Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson accepting his induction by delivering a speech consisting of the word "blah" repeated over and over again.

Vanguard RecordsMost people watching the American Idol finale Thursday night would say that the duet that new Idol winner Candice Glover sang with Jennifer Hudson on the song "Inseparable" was one of the highlights of the evening. Someone who wouldn't say that is the woman who originally recorded the song: Natalie Cole.
Cole was evidently miffed that she wasn't invited to sing her song with Glover on the finale. In a message on her Twitter account, Natalie wrote, "Make no mistake. 'Inseparable' was NOT originally recorded by [Jennifer Hudson] but by ME." Cole further wrote on Facebook, "American Idol ought to be ashamed of themselves....I am seriously offended!"
Some fans responded that they, too, are upset that Cole wasn't tapped to appear on the finale -- after all, for years, veteran artists have made special appearances to duet with the finalists. Others, meanwhile, have advised Natalie to chill out, saying that at least Hudson and Glover did the song justice and gave her song some exposure.
So far, neither Candice nor Jennifer have responded to Natalie's comments.
Photo: James O'MaraThe stars are coming out for Carole King this coming week. On Tuesday, she'll be saluted in Washington, D.C., by the likes of Billy Joel, James Taylor, Gloria Estefan...and President Obama.
King is the first woman ever to receive the Gershwin Prize for Popular Song, which is given annually to a composer for his or her contributions to popular music. According to USA Today, during a ceremony at the Library of Congress, the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer will get to hang out with the president and first lady, and she'll be treated to performances by Patti Austin, Michael Feinstein and Colbie Caillat, among others.
Then, during another ceremony at the White House, King's good friend James Taylor, as well as Joel, Estefan, rising British pop star Emeli Sandé, country star Trisha Yearwood and actor/singer Jesse McCartney, will all pay tribute to her.
The event will be streamed live on WhiteHouse.gov/live starting at 7 p.m. ET on Tuesday. PBS will air the show May 28 at 8 p.m. ET.
Photo: Danny ClinchNBC's popular comedy series The Office came to an end Thursday night after nine seasons with a one-hour special that centered around the wedding of characters Dwight and Angela. During the reception, the party-goers were shown dancing to a variety of popular songs including Bruce Springsteen's "Rosalita." Well, apparently the Boss was paying attention because he posted a note on his Twitter account that read, "Rosalita! Good choice for Dwight & Angela's wedding reception."
Angela Kinsey, the actress who plays Angela, was excited that Springteen had taken notice, tweeting in response, "Holy crap! Thx for watching!"
Other songs played during the wedding reception scenes included Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' "Here Comes My Girl," The Cars' "You Might Think," Motley Crue's "Angela" and Hall & Oates' "Sara Smile." If you missed The Office's finale, you can still watch it online at NBC.com.
GeorgeMichael.comGeorge Michael and cars just don't mix. The BBC reports that the singer was airlifted to the hospital Thursday after suffering a head injury in a car crash in the U.K.
A statement posted on George's Facebook page says that he is "fine" and only has "superficial cuts" as a result of the accident, which took place in Hertfordshire. The singer wasn't driving the car; he was a passenger, and the statement adds that "no third party was involved."
A police spokesperson, meanwhile, told the BBC, "The exact circumstances of what happened are unclear at this time and until further investigations have been carried out it would be inappropriate for us to comment further."
This isn't the first time that George has been in a car crash. In 2010, he was fined, sentenced to eight weeks in prison and banned from driving for five years after he crashed his car into a store while under the influence of marijuana.
In recent years, George has had some serious health issues. He was hospitalized with pneumonia in 2011, and for a time was in a coma. He later claimed he almost died.
Duff-Loaded.comDuff McKagan reports that Missionary Position vocalist Jeff Angell, the frontman for his new side project Walking Papers, had a chance to be lead singer for Velvet Revolver. The former Guns N’ Roses bassist tells Rolling Stone that Angell got a shot to try out for the supergroup before they chose former member Scott Weiland as their singer.
"I hoped at some point I would do something with Jeff; we're good bros and we share a similar path in certain aspects," he explains to the magazine. "Early on, when we were looking for singers for Velvet Revolver, I brought Jeff Angell down, about 2003. I've had a relationship with him and wanted to work with him for that long."
Walking Papers' self-titled debut album is due in stores on August 6. McKagan is previewing the release by streaming online one of the cuts, "I'll Stick Around," which features a guest appearance from Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready. You can listen to the tune now at RollingStone.com.
You'll get your chance to hear Walking Papers in action when the group hits the road as part of the Rockstar Energy Uproar Festival, which kicks off on August 9 at the Toyota Pavilion at Montage Mountain in Scranton, Pennsylvania. Other bands set to perform at the fest include Alice in Chains, Jane’s Addiction and Coheed and Cambria. Check out RockstarUproar.com to view the full itinerary.
Facebook.com/StingBack in 1989, Sting starred in a Broadway musical: a revival of The Threepenny Opera. Now, he's trying to raise some cash to bring his own production to the Great White Way.
The New York Post reports that the former Police frontman and his producing partner are trying to raise $15 million to bring their musical, The Last Ship, to Broadway next spring. Based on his autobiographical album The Soul Cages, the musical tells the story of a family of shipbuilders whose future looks bleak when the shipyard where they've worked for years is shut down.
A staged reading of the piece was conducted last week for potential investors, reports the Post. While Sting isn't going to star in the show, he did write the music and lyrics, and the tone is said to be "moody," "reflective" and "haunting." A source told the paper that the show is reminiscent of Billy Elliot in that it's about "working-class people who maintain their dignity in the face of adversity."
According to the Post, one potential investor said he thought the show was too "arty" for Broadway, but another pointed out that the musical Once was considered to be "arty" as well, and it won the Tony.
The Post also claims that Sting's been suffering from writer's block for several years, and working on this show is what cured him.
OMusicAwards.comMTV's O Music Awards returns this year, and a number of veteran artists have scored nominations. Neil Young, David Bowie and Yoko Ono each will compete for one honor at the third annual ceremony, which will stream live at OMusicAwards.com on June 19 at 7 p.m. ET.

Young is among the nominees for the Analog Genius Award. The folk-rock great received his nod because of his work on the high-quality digital-music service Pono. Bowie, meanwhile, is in the running for the Too Much Ass for TV prize, thanks to the risqué and edgy clip that was filmed to accompany his new tune "The Stars (Are Out Tonight)."
As for Ono, she's been nominated for the Digital Genius Award. John Lennon's widow, who turned 80 in February, was cited for releasing a chart-topping dance hit, "Hold Me"; creating artistically minded apps; and sharing her innovative photography via Instagram.
Photo: Alan SilfenIn the days leading up to the May 28 release of his new collaborative album, Wrote a Song for Everyone, John Fogerty will be all over the TV dial. In the next week alone, the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer has several appearances scheduled on various talk shows and specials.
On Sunday, the ex-Creedence Clearwater Revival frontman will be among the many musicians featured in the CBS concert special ACM Presents: Tim McGraw's Superstar Summer Night, which will air at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Then, Fogerty is scheduled to perform not once but twice on CBS' Late Show with David Letterman -- on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Also on the site is a video in which Fogerty tells the story behind how he came to write the enduring Creedence song "Fortunate Son," along with a segment of the new rendition of the tune he recorded with Foo Fighters. In addition, there's a behind-the-scenes clip featuring Fogerty and Bob Seger working on their version of CCR's "Who'll Stop the Rain."
Peter Kramer/NBCWade Robson says Michael Jackson was a talented artist, but he alleges that the late performer was also "pedophile and a child sexual abuser." In an interview with the Today show's Matt Lauer, Robson stands by his lawsuit, claiming that when he was a child, Jackson sexually abused him.
Australian-born Wade was just a kid when he began performing alongside Michael, appearing in the King of Pop's music videos for "Black or White," "Jam" and "Heal the World." Though Robson had previously defended MJ against sexual-abuse allegations, the 30-year-old choreographer now claims that he was 7 when Michael began molesting him. He adds that the alleged abuse continued until he was about 14.
Meanwhile, Tom Mesereau, a lawyer who represented Jackson in a 2005 molestation case, responded to Wade's Today show interview, telling TMZ, "This is a pathetic and an obvious grab for publicity and an attempt to put pressure on the [Michael Jackson] estate to pay him money."
But Robson said in the interview that his claims have nothing to do with money. For 22 years, Wade says, he remained silent, but he tells Today that he is speaking up. "I feel like this is the right thing to do because this is my truth," he maintains.
Contrary to earlier reports, Wade says, "This is not a case of repressed memory. I have never forgotten one moment of what Michael did to me, but I was psychologically and emotionally completely unable and unwilling to understand that it was sexual abuse."
Mesereau, however, points to the fact that Robson filed a creditor's claim against Michael's estate -- "Why call yourself a creditor if it's not about money?" he says, adding that Robson has volunteered statements supporting Jackson, both in and out of court. Mesereau tells TMZ that he can't believe the truth of Robson's relationship with Michael didn't surface then.
Amid all this, Taj Jackson, the son of Michael's brother Tito, tweeted support for the King of Pop on Thursday, writing, "I was sexually abuse [sic]. By an uncle on my mom's side of the family when I was a kid. My uncle was a support system for me and my mom. He wrote a letter to her that many have seen already, u just didn't know what it was about. That is how I KNOW Wade is lying. Because I AM a survivor."
NINA DOBREV REUNITES WITH HER EX AT CW UPFRONTS:Nina Dobrev and former boyfriend Ian Somerhalder kept things professional as they both attended the CW upfronts in New York City on Thursday (May 16th.)

SETH MEYERS OWES JIMMY FALLON A DEBT OF GRATITUDE: Newly announced Late Night host Seth Meyers says he owes a debt of gratitude to former Saturday Night Live co-star Jimmy Fallon for showing that there is a natural progression to go from show to show. Seth said, "I think I owe a debt of gratitude to Jimmy for having gone from Update to Late Night and having shown it's a nice progression, so I'm very happy to be doing it. I think if you sit at that Update desk, you learn how to talk about topical stories, and certainly with the guests you learn to talk to crazy people. Although when you do late night, they're real crazy people as opposed to Bill Hader pretending to be one."
'SCANDAL' STAR SAYS HIS WIFE DOESN'T LIKE HIS SEX SCENES:Scandal star Tony Goldwyn says that his wife refuses to watch the hit ABC show because of the steamy sex scenes between his character and Kerry Washington's.

The MET Gala may have happened over a week ago but people are still trying to figure out the real reason Gwyneth Paltrow said she had a bad time at the event. US Weekly claims that Madonna may to blame.
Sources tell the magazine that Madonna went all mean girl on her former friend by snubbing her the entire night and then chatting it up with Gwyneth's current pal Beyonce. The magazine also claims that Madge was dropped from Gwyneth's circle of friends and has been hell bent on making her suffer for it.
An insider close to the situation told Gossip Cop that there was no snubbing and that the pop star and the Iron Man 3 actress simply avoid each other in social situations.
Last night (May 16th), on American Idol,Candice Glover was named the winner during the season 12 finale.
The show featured many guest performances including Amber Holcomb who performed "Next To Me" with Emeli Sande, and Psy who performed "Gentleman".

Also making an appearance The Band Perry, Jennifer Lopez, Pitbull, and judge Mariah Carey singing a medley of her hits.
After the nationwide vote, the winner of Idol season 12 was Glover. After her win she performed her single "I Am Beautiful".
David Beckham has announced that this season playing for Paris Saint-Germain will be his last. The 38-year-old released a statement to thank his team for the opportunity but added that it feels like the right time to finish his career.
David said, "If you had told me as a young boy I would have played for and won trophies with my boyhood club Manchester United, proudly captained and played for my country over one hundred times and lined up for some of the biggest clubs in the world, I would have told you it was a fantasy. I'm fortunate to have realized those dreams." He continued, "I'm honored to represent England both on and off the pitch...I want to thank all my teammates, the great managers that I had the pleasure of learning from. I also want to thank the fans who have all supported me and given me the strength to succeed."
Beckham still has two games left to play this season.
Two of the six actors who made up the original cast of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers have rejected invitations to take part in a reunion episode of the show. Walter Jones, who originated the role of the black ranger, is showing solidarity with former blue ranger David Yost by refusing to sign on.
Yost previously accused the show's producers of harassing him about being gay while he was a part of the show from 1993-1996. Jones released a statement to TMZ saying, "I'm very sorry to disappoint the fans as I would have loved to be a part of it. David, who I still keep in touch with regularly, is a very great guy and it would have been fun to work together again on something we helped originate." Sources tell the website that the show isn't offering them enough money to make up for the way producers treated them during the original run of the series.
The only former star to agree to the reunion has been the original green ranger played by Jason David Frank.
Thuy Trang, who played the original yellow ranger, died in a car accident in 2001.
Emma Watson has been in the public eye since she made her debut as Hermione Granger as a child in the first Harry Potter film and now at 23 years old she says she has never been in a rush to dress like a grown up. She appears on the cover of the June/July issue of W magazine where she discusses embracing a more adult style.
The Bling Ring star says, "I've never wanted to grow up too fast. I wanted to wear a sports bra until I was 22! The allure of being sexy never really held any excitement for me. I've never been in a terrible rush to be seen as a woman."
Emma was the face of Burberry's 2009 Autumn/Winter campaign and their 2010 Spring/Summer collection.
Wade Robson appeared on The Today Show yesterday (May 16th) to set the record straight about the molestation allegations against the late Michael Jackson. He told Matt Lauer, "You know I said what I understood and I said what I was able to say. From 7-years-old, from day one of the abuse, Michael told me that we loved each other and this is love, that this was an expression of our love and they he'd follow that up with, 'but if you ever tell anyone what we're doing, both of our lives are careers will be over.' He would call me every day and role play and he would tell me the same sort of things and also tell me then that if anyone ever thought that we did these sort of things, these sexual things, that both of us would go to jail."
Wade added that he didn't decide to take action until he saw a therapist after having nervous breakdown. He said, "For the first time in my life I began to realize that my completely numb and unexplored feelings in relation to what Michael did to me might be a problem and maybe I need to speak to someone about it."
He added that he thinks Michael was a "troubled man" who was an amazing talent but also a "pedophile."
MICHAEL'S ESTATE RESPONDS
In response to the interview, Howard Weitzman, the attorney of Michael's estate told TMZ, "Mr. Robson has adamantly denied under oath and in numerous interviews over the past 20 years that Michael Jackson ever did anything inappropriate to him. He now wants us to believe that he committed perjury at least twice and has been lying to anyone and everyone about Mr. Jackson since the early '90s so he can file a claim for money. Mr. Robson's transparent lawsuit comes nearly 4 years after Michael passed. His claim is outrageous and sad."
Michael Jackson's nephew Taj Jackson also spoke on the interview -- saying that Wade is full of it, Michael helped him get through his own molestation when he was a kid. Taj -- the son of Tito Jackson has revealed that he was molested by a family member on his mother's side. He tweeted, "That is how I KNOW Wade is lying. Because I AM a survivor. I was sexually abuse (sic). By a family member on my mom's side of the family when I was a kid."
He added that Michael "was a support system for me and my mom" during his abuse ordeal. He even tweeted a picture of a note that MJ wrote to his mom, which had an article about child molestation to help Taj. ."
