NYON, Switzerland (AP) \u2014 The Black Eyed Peas will perform on the field before Real Madrid plays Juventus in the Champions League final.

UEFA announced the warm-up act Monday for the match on June 3 at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.

It is the second year the game will kick off after a concert. A performance by Alicia Keys meant the Real Madrid-Atletico Madrid final last year started four minutes late at the San Siro in Milan.

The Champions League final typically draws an average global television audience of at least 160 million.

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) \u2014 Rebel Wilson was devastated by a series of magazine articles that she says painted her as a liar and subsequently cost her roles in Hollywood, a lawyer for the actress said Monday.

Wilson is suing Australian publisher Bauer Media for defamation over several articles published in 2015 that the Australian-born actress said led to her film contracts being terminated.

At the opening of the trial in the Supreme Court of Victoria on Monday, Wilson's lawyer, Matthew Collins, said his client was \"cut to the core\" when she learned 1.5 million people had read an article online that said she had lied about her name, age and upbringing in Australia. Collins said the articles were published to coincide with a high point in Wilson's acting career, including the release of \"Pitch Perfect 2.\"

\"She thought she'd never been hit with such nastiness, coincided to time with the pinnacle of her career,\" Collins told the court.

Collins said Wilson was subsequently fired from several movie roles.

The actress, known for her work in comedies such as \"Pitch Perfect\" and \"Bridesmaids,\" flew to Melbourne for the three-week trial and sat in court on Monday alongside her sister. She is expected to testify at a later date.

Wilson is seeking unspecified damages from the publisher.

A lawyer for Bauer Media rejected the argument that the articles had harmed Wilson, telling the court that no reasonable reader would have thought any less of the actress by reading them.

\"They weren't nasty articles,\" lawyer Georgina Schoff said.

Schoff also said the articles were factual, telling the court that Wilson did not grow up in the \"ghetto\" of Sydney as the actress previously said in interviews. In fact, Schoff said, Wilson attended an elite private boarding school.

Bryan Cranston is curious to see how his new animated movie 'Isle of Dogs' will look on a screen.

The 61-year-old actor plays a dog in the Wes Anderson-directed movie and Bryan has admitted to being unsure about the project because of its unusual creative process.

He shared: \"I read little snippets of it, I saw the picture of my character, and things like that, and I know the general story and what we recorded, but I wasn't aware of other recordings, just like actors are not always aware of other scenes that are being shot, and I don't know how it will all come together. We'll see how it turns out.\"

But Bryan feels the new movie is typical of the director's work.

Asked about his character, he told Collider: \"I'm a dog. I'm me. I'm kind of a scruffy dog. I'm not a purebred. I'm a mutt, who it turns out to have a dalliance.

\"It's a sweet, odd film, and it's what you'd expect from Wes Anderson.\"

The actor also compared Wes to fellow director Robin Swicord, who helmed the 2016 movie 'Wakefield', which Bryan also starred in.

Reflecting on his experiences of working with Wes, Bryan said: \"He's a fascinating human being, a nice guy, and a person you would not think is from Texas.

\"Speaking of 'Groundhog Day', I was in a recording session with Bill Murray, Bob Balaban, Edward Norton and Wes Anderson. It was interesting and weird and fun.

\"Wes has his image of what that's going to be, like Robin had her image of what 'Wakefield' was going to be. Even though they're in different genres, the work is the same.\"

UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) \u2014 With laughter, hugs and tears \u2014 and the requisite death-defying stunts \u2014 the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus received its final standing ovation Sunday night as it performed its last show.

\"We are, forevermore, the Greatest Show on Earth,\" boomed Johnathan Lee Iverson, who has been the ringmaster since 1999. His son, who also performed, stood by his side. The show was held at the Nassau County Coliseum in Uniondale, New York, about 30 miles (48 kilometers) east of New York City.

It was an emotional 2 1/2 hours for those who worked on the circus. Many of Ringling's employees are second, third and even fourth-generation circus performers, while others met their spouses while touring. All spent months on the road, traveling from city to city in Ringling's train cars and describing themselves as a giant family, albeit one with many clowns.

But it also was the fans who felt like family.

Elaine Bario, a 57-year-old usher at the Nassau County Coliseum, said she's seen the circus every time it's been on Long Island \u2014 some years as a child with her father, who also was an usher at the same venue.

\"The animals, this is where we fell in love with them,\" she said. \"We got to see animals here and the Bronx Zoo. We don't go on safaris.\"

Bario cried as she watched the final big cat act with its leopards, tigers and Alexander Lacey, the handsome animal trainer.

\"I've always had a crush on the lion tamers,\" she said, laughing through tears.

But it was those animal shows that led to the circus' eventual demise.

Over the years, animal rights activists had targeted Ringling, saying that forcing animals to perform and transporting them around the country amounted to abuse. In May 2016, the company removed elephants from its shows, but ticket sales continued to decline. People, it seemed, didn't want to see a circus without elephants. Ringling's parent company, Feld Entertainment, announced in January it would close the show, citing declining attendance and high operating costs.

A handful of protesters stood outside the venue on Sunday, with signs that said \"compassion always wins,\" and \"the future is animal free.\"

Feld Entertainment CEO Kenneth Feld said that \"we all have to embrace change.\"

Feld's father and uncle bought the circus in 1967. It was sold to Mattel in 1971, but the Feld family continued to manage the shows. The Felds bought the circus back in 1982.

Earlier Sunday, a group of retired and former circus performers sat across the street at a hotel bar, laughing and hugging and sharing memories of tours past.

\"There's a lot of mixed emotions, said Rev. George \"Jerry\" Hogan, Ringling's circus chaplain. \"It's a reunion, but it's bittersweet. I'm seeing people I haven't seen in years.\"

Once a mainstay of entertainment in small towns and big cities across the country, Ringling had two touring circuses this season, one of which ended its run earlier this month in Providence, Rhode Island . That show was the more traditional, three-ring circus, while the one performing this weekend had a narrative storyline. Called \"Out of This World,\" it was set in futuristic outer space.

In the end, though, Feld executives said they knew the circus couldn't compete with iPhones, the internet, video games and massively branded and carefully marketed characters. Their other productions \u2014 Frozen on Ice, Marvel Live, Supercross, Monster Trucks, Disney on Ice \u2014 resonate better with younger generations.

But that didn't stop the circus from giving the performance of their life, one last time, to one last crowd.

Drake was a high roller in Las Vegas, beating Adele's record for most wins at the Billboard Music Awards. Cher and Celine Dion each reflected on their own iconic careers and amazing songs on Sunday night's awards show, while a moment of silence was held for rocker Chris Cornell, who died Thursday in Detroit. Miley Cyrus delivered an emotional, but low-key performance and Vanessa Hudgens shined as co-host.

These are the top moments from the awards show.

___

DRAKE'S LUCKY 13

The rapper broke Adele's record with 13 wins for the night as well as an eye-catching performance in the middle of famous Fountains of Bellagio. With the streams of water and fireworks timed to his song, \"Gyalchester,\" the Canadian rapper danced around a platform in the water.

He already had 10 awards by the time the show began, but made sure to give a shout out during his acceptance speeches to his friends in the audience including Nicki Minaj, co-host Ludacris and Lil Wayne. The Chainsmokers, who tied Drake with 22 nominations, won four awards, while other top winners, Beyonce and twenty one pilots, both won five each, but did not attend.

___

ICONIC CHER

When Cher got up to accept her Icon Award, she wasn't afraid to do a little bragging. The singer and actress noted that she had been lucky to have a dream career for more than five decades, and at the age of 71, she said she can still hold a plank for five minutes.

She certainly showed off that athletic bod in a revealing outfit with pasties and a blonde wig as she performed her '90s dance hit \"Believe,\" then changed into a teased up curly black mane and leather jacket for her performance of \"If I Could Turn Back Time.\"

She noted she was told early on that she never was the most beautiful or the most talented, but she was special and added that \"luck has so much to do with my success with a little bit of something thrown in.\"

___

HARD GOODBYE

Rock fans were stunned to learn about the death of rocker Chris Cornell, who was found dead Thursday in his hotel room in Detroit. The lead singer of Soundgarden and Audioslave and leader of the Seattle grunge movement was honored with a moment of silence during the awards show, which was a shorter than expected tribute to the 52-year-old singer and songwriter.

However, Dan Reynolds of Imagine Dragons summed up his career succinctly, noting he was \"a true innovator,\" ''a musical architect,\" ''a prolific songwriting\" and \"a legendary performer.\"

___

TITANIC PERFORMANCE

Two decades after a movie and a song captivated the country, Celine Dion revisited her iconic hit \"My Heart Will Go On,\" with the same passion as ever. The Canadian singer returned to celebrate the Oscar-winning song 20 years after it topped the charts as the theme to the blockbuster \"Titanic.\"

Under a glittering chandelier and dressed in a Met-worthy white gown, Dion wowed the audience with her performance and earned one of the biggest cheers of the night.

___

VANESSA GEEKS OUT

New co-host Vanessa Hudgens was acting more like a fan than an emcee with her enthusiastic intros as well as singing and dancing throughout the night. She impressed early with her rapping skills to show her love for Nicki Minaj, then tried a heartfelt rendition of Dion's \"The Power of Love.\"

Later on she showed up in one of Cher's iconic stage costumes and danced along to Cher's performance from the audience.

Even Drake took notice in his acceptance speech, adding that Hudgens looked \"amazing,\" which drew envious looks from Nicki Minaj.

___

NEW MILEY

Even Miley Cyrus' family noted the change in demeanor at this year's award show for the former Disney star when her sister Noah Cyrus introduced her \"for the first time in years with pants on.\" Once known for her shocking performances of twerking and dangling naked from a wrecking ball, the singer performed the slow-burning love song \"Malibu,\" without much of her signature in-your-face sexiness.

She paired the breezy single with a muted performance with acoustic instruments and a simple white crop top and wide brimmed hat.

But the singer, who is engaged to Liam Hemsworth, couldn't hide her emotion by the end when her eyes teared up.

NEW YORK (AP) \u2014 Former \"Today\" co-host Billy Bush says he's a better man and ready to get back into television seven months after being fired from his job at NBC following the release of a videotape in which he can be heard engaging in lewd talk with Donald Trump.

In an interview posted Sunday, Bush told The Hollywood Reporter the past months have \"been a roller coaster\" that included an apology to his three daughters.

Bush said his then-15-year-old daughter, Mary, called him in tears from her boarding school when the news broke, and asked him why he could be heard laughing at the things Trump was saying on the old tape.

\"It hit really hard, and I stopped for a second, and I said, 'I have no answer for that that's any good. I am really sorry. That was Dad in a bad moment a long time ago,\" Bush said.

The 2005 tapes featuring Trump's shockingly vulgar and sexually charged comments emerged a month before the November elections, rocking Trump's campaign and prompting condemnation from politicians on both side of the aisle. In a videotaped apology, Trump declared he was wrong but also dismissed the revelations as \"nothing more than a distraction\" from a decade ago. He later said that he never did any of the actions described on the tape, and dismissed his words as locker room talk.

Bush, who had recently been hired as co-host of the \"Today\" show, lost his job. He said he went through a lot of soul searching and spent seven days on a spiritual retreat with no phones. He reads, meditates and is doing yoga.

\"I have changed in a way that I think will make me better at my job,\" Bush said. \"I've come out of this with a deeper understanding of how women can connect to the feeling of having to fight extra hard for an even playing field.\"

The 2005 video shows Trump, who was the star of \"The Apprentice,\" riding on an \"Access Hollywood\" bus with then-host Bush. At one point, Trump describes trying to have sex with a married woman. He also brags about women letting him kiss and grab them because he is famous.

\"When you're a star they let you do it,\" Trump says. \"You can do anything.\"

Arnold Schwarzenegger has confirmed there will be a sixth 'Terminator' movie.

The 69-year-old actor has been teasing fans about the possibility of another instalment since the franchise was rebooted with the 'Terminator: Genisys' two years ago, but it looks like it's full steam ahead from now on as he has revealed James Cameron will produce the film while he reprises his role as the cyborg assassin.

Speaking to Screen Daily, he said: \"It is back... It is moving forward. [Cameron] has some good ideas of how to continue with the franchise... I will be in the movie.\"

The 62-year-old filmmaker was at the helm for the original 1984 movie and sequel 'Terminator 2: Judgement Day', but was not involved in 2003's 'Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines', 2009's 'Terminator Salvation' or 2015's 'Terminator Genisys'.

Meanwhile, it's believed bosses have had a swift change of mind as it was claimed three months ago that Paramount executives had shelved the plans to make another film because of the criticism the 2015 blockbuster, which saw Emilia Clarke portray Sarah Connor alongside Schwarznegger's Terminator, received.

A source said at the time: \"It is over for 'The Terminator' and Arnold.

\"The studio has taken the sequel off the production slate completely, meaning there is no preproduction or any plans for another sequel. The talent had been offered long term deals, but this is not happening.

\"The 'Genisys' movie was seen as a way of reviving (the franchise), but the critics were not happy and somehow the studio bosses fell out of love with making more, even though they made huge profits.\"

According to reports, 'Terminator Genisys' financier David Ellison was backing a new film and respected sci-fi authors had been asked to come up with plot ideas.

NEW YORK (AP) \u2014 \"Sgt. Pepper\" was only the beginning. Half a century after the Beatles' psychedelic landmark, it stands as just one of many musical astonishments of 1967 that shaped what we listen to now.

The rock album became an art form, and the tight, two-minute hits of Motown and Stax began to give way to the funk of James Brown and Sly and the Family Stone and the fiery candor of Aretha Franklin and \"Respect.\" It was the dawn of the rock festival, in Monterey, and of the pop soundtrack, Simon & Garfunkel's music for \"The Graduate.\"

And it was the year Bob Dylan and the backing musicians who would name themselves the Band quietly gathered at a pink house outside of Woodstock, New York, and recorded dozens of songs that were the birth of \"roots music\" and the foundation for rock's most famous bootleg, \"The Basement Tapes.\"

\"We were in our own little world, up in the mountains, kind of isolated from everything that was going on,\" says the Band's Robbie Robertson. \"But looking back at that time, you could see that the stars were aligned and there was a magic people have been trying to dissect ever since.\"

There were endings in 1967 \u2014 the deaths of Otis Redding and Woody Guthrie \u2014 but many more beginnings. Few years contained so many notable debuts, from recording artists who would influence punk, heavy metal, glam rock, progressive rock, new wave and other musical trends of the following decades: The Velvet Underground, the Jimi Hendrix Experience, the Doors, along with first albums by Leonard Cohen, Janis Joplin (with Big Brother and the Holding Company), the Grateful Dead, David Bowie, Pink Floyd and Sly and the Family Stone.

Music scenes thrived throughout the United States and in England, where the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Who, Cream and others were making some of their best music; and a young Reg Dwight renamed himself Elton John and began his songwriting partnership with Bernie Taupin.

Besides \"Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band,\" the Beatles released the hits \"Strawberry Fields\" and \"Penny Lane\" and unveiled their paean to the Summer of Love, \"All You Need is Love.\" The Stones issued the acclaimed \"Between the Buttons\" album and the classic two-sided single \"Ruby Tuesday\" and \"Let's Spend the Night Together.\" The Who's \"The Who Sell Out\" interspersed mock-radio commercials and jingles and such hits as \"I Can See for Miles.\" Cream's \"Disraeli Gears,\" often listed among rock's greatest albums, includes the band's signature song, and signature riff, \"Sunshine of Your Love.\"

\"The classic album era begins around this time and it canonizes music in a very different way than when you hear a single,\" says Ann Powers, a music critic for NPR and author of \"Good Booty: Love and Sex, Black and White, Body and Soul in American Music,\" which comes out in August. \"And that's a powerful reason why the music remains so resonant, because the album is a like a novel set to music. It's the form we share with our children and the form we teach and the form we collect.\"

In the U.S., San Francisco's Haight-Asbury district was the home of Flower Power and Scott McKenzie's \"San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair)\" the unofficial anthem. It was the year Joplin, the Dead and other San Francisco acts broke through nationally and Jefferson Airplane released its two most famous songs, \"Somebody to Love\" and \"White Rabbit.\"

In Grand Rapids, Michigan, the founders of Hot Line Music Journal helped out a high school friend and released his debut album, \"Backup Train\"; Al Greene would soon drop the final \"e'' from his last name. In Memphis, Stax was at its peak, with a triumphant tour of Europe featuring Redding and Booker T. & the M.G.'s, Redding's dazzling performance at Monterey and classic singles by Sam and Dave (\"Soul Man\") and Arthur Conley (\"Sweet Soul Music).\" Stax never approached such success again; Redding was killed in a plane crash in December, days after adding overdubs to what became his greatest hit, \"(Sittin' On the) Dock of the Bay.\"

In Philadelphia, producers Kenneth Gamble and Leon Huff had their first top 10 hit, the Soul Survivors' \"Expressway to Your Heart.\" In Cincinnati, James Brown gathered his backing musicians and recorded \"Cold Sweat,\" widely considered one of the first funk records and a track sampled by Public Enemy, DJ Shadow and other rap and hip-hop artists.

\"We like to celebrate debut work, but the best work often happens when mature artists have to confront challenges from outside music. James Brown had been making music for quite a while by 1967. But being part of African-American culture, he's looking at the rise of Black Power and Afro-centrism and he knows he needs to try different things,\" Powers says.

\"And this leads to a new phase and a new freedom. And you can still see that impact. Black Power became extremely influential with hip-hip artists. You look at Kendrick Lamar and you can imagine Kendrick Lamar as part of 1967. He has a different sound, but the sentiments and the political stance are not that far off.\"

NEW YORK (AP) \u2014 \"Sgt. Pepper\" was only the beginning. Half a century after the Beatles' psychedelic landmark, it stands as one of many musical astonishments of 1967 that shaped what we listen to now.

It was a year of technical, lyrical and rhythmic innovation, of the highest craftsmanship and most inspired anti-craftsmanship. The rock album became an art form, and the tight, two-minute hits of Motown and Stax began to give way to the funk of James Brown and Sly and the Family Stone and the fiery candor of Aretha Franklin and \"Respect.\" It was the dawn of the rock festival, in Monterey, and of the pop soundtrack, Simon & Garfunkel's music for \"The Graduate.\"

And it was the year Bob Dylan and the backing performers who would name themselves the Band quietly gathered in a pink house just outside of Woodstock, New York, and recorded dozens of songs old and new that were the birth of \"roots music\" and the foundation for rock's most famous bootleg, \"The Basement Tapes.\"

\"We were in our own little world, up in the mountains, kind of isolated from everything that was going on,\" says the Band's Robbie Robertson. \"But looking back at that time, you could see that the stars were aligned and there was a magic people have been trying to dissect ever since.\"

There were endings in 1967 \u2014 the deaths of Otis Redding and Woody Guthrie \u2014 but many more beginnings. Few years contained so many notable debuts, from artists who would influence punk, heavy metal, glam rock, progressive rock, new wave and other musical trends: The Velvet Underground, the Jimi Hendrix Experience, the Doors, along with first albums by Leonard Cohen, Janis Joplin (with Big Brother and the Holding Company), the Grateful Dead, David Bowie, Pink Floyd and Sly and the Family Stone, who called their record \"A Whole New Thing.\"

The month before Woody Guthrie died, his son, Arlo, debuted with the album \"Alice's Restaurant.\" Side One was the anti-war classic \"Alice's Restaurant Massacree,\" 18 minutes of deadpan absurdity about Thanksgiving and litter that would become a holiday tradition for the emerging \"progressive\" FM radio format.

In 1967, a 21-year-old Berkeley dropout, Jann Wenner, borrowed $7,500 and from a San Francisco loft turned out the first issue of Rolling Stone, which helped bring serious attention to music then-dismissed by most establishment newspapers and magazines. During a recent interview, Wenner said 1967 was an ideal time to launch such a publication. Rock was not only maturing, but becoming more interconnected. The Monterey festival in June helped introduce the Who and Hendrix to American audiences and musicians, while also bringing together performers from Los Angeles (the Byrds, the Mamas and the Papas) and San Francisco (the Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane).

\"There was a lot of energy and recognition of fellow artists coming from around the world and trying to do the same thing,\" Wenner says.

\"All those new, highly visual acts at Monterey expanded greatly the idea of what you can do on stage,\" says the music critic Robert Hilburn. \"After those events alone, anything seemed possible \u2014 this rock 'n' roll force was unleashed in all its creative power and glory.\"

Music scenes thrived throughout the United States and in England, where the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Who, Cream and others were making some of their best music; and a young Reg Dwight renamed himself Elton John and began his songwriting partnership with Bernie Taupin.

Besides \"Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band,\" the Beatles released the hits \"Strawberry Fields\" and \"Penny Lane\" and unveiled their paean to the Summer of Love, \"All You Need is Love.\" The Stones issued the acclaimed \"Between the Buttons\" album and the classic two-sided single \"Ruby Tuesday\" and \"Let's Spend the Night Together.\" The Who's \"The Who Sell Out\" cleverly interspersed mock-radio commercials and jingles between such hits as \"I Can See for Miles.\" Cream's \"Disraeli Gears,\" often listed among rock's greatest albums, includes the band's signature song, and one of rock's signature guitar riffs, \"Sunshine of Your Love.\"

\"The classic album era begins around this time and it canonizes music in a very different way than when you hear a single,\" says Ann Powers, a music critic for NPR and author of \"Good Booty: Love and Sex, Black and White, Body and Soul in American Music,\" which comes out in August. \"And that's a powerful reason why the music remains so resonant, because the album is a like a novel set to music. It's the form we share with our children and the form we teach and the form we collect.\"

In the U.S., San Francisco's Haight-Asbury district was the home of Flower Power and Scott McKenzie's \"San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair)\" the unofficial anthem. It was the year Joplin, the Dead and other San Francisco acts broke through nationally and Jefferson Airplane released its two most famous songs, \"Somebody to Love\" and \"White Rabbit.\"

In Los Angeles, a label called Original Sound helped Dyke and the Blazers' \"Funky Broadway\" become a minor hit and likely the first one to include the word \"funky.\" The Byrds warned aspiring musicians with the single \"So You Want to Be a Rock 'n' Roll Star\" while a folk trio called the Stone Poneys hit the top 20 with \"Different Drum,\" which helped make a star of the 21-year-old lead singer, Linda Ronstadt. Buffalo Springfield, the short-lived quintet featuring Neil Young and Stephen Stills, released its protest classic \"For What It's Worth\" and the album \"Buffalo Springfield Again,\" an innovative blend of pop, folk, rock and country that helped shape L.A. music for years.

In Muscle Shoals, Alabama, Wilson Pickett recorded his version of \"Funky Broadway\" and reached the top 10. In Memphis, Stax was at its peak, with a triumphant tour of Europe featuring Redding and Booker T. & the M.G.'s, Redding's dazzling performance at Monterey and classic singles by Sam and Dave (\"Soul Man\") and Arthur Conley (\"Sweet Soul Music\"). Stax never approached such success again; Redding was killed in a plane crash in December, days after adding overdubs to what became his greatest hit, \"(Sittin' On the) Dock of the Bay.\"

One of Redding's greatest heirs would debut the same year. In Grand Rapids, Michigan, the founders of Hot Line Music Journal helped out a high school friend and released the album, \"Back Up Train\"; Al Greene soon dropped the final \"e'' from his last name. In Philadelphia, producers Kenneth Gamble and Leon Huff had their first 10 top hit, the Soul Survivors' \"Expressway to Your Heart,\" and in the 1970s would supplant Motown as a commercial empire. At King Studios in Cincinnati, James Brown gathered his backing musicians and recorded \"Cold Sweat,\" widely considered one of the first funk records and a track sampled by Public Enemy, DJ Shadow and other rap and hip-hop artists.

\"We like to celebrate debut work, but the best work often happens when mature artists have to confront challenges from outside music. James Brown had been making music for quite a while by 1967. But being part of African-American culture, he's looking at the rise of Black Power and Afro-centrism and he knows he needs to try different things,\" Powers says.

\"And this leads to a new phase and a new freedom. And you can still see that impact. Black Power became extremely influential with hip-hip artists. You look at Kendrick Lamar and you can imagine Kendrick Lamar as part of 1967. He has a different sound, but the sentiments and the political stance are not that far off.\"

In Detroit, Motown's golden age would soon end. The songwriting team of Holland-Dozier-Holland had left by 1968 because of a royalties dispute, and the rise of Sly and the Family Stone, in tune with the more militant politics of the late '60s, moved commercial tastes from the label's polished sound.

But in 1967, Berry Gordy's \"Hitsville\" studios were as productive as ever, from the Marvin Gaye-Tammi Terrell duet \"Ain't No Mountain High Enough\" to Stevie Wonder's \"I Was Made to Love Her\" and Smokey Robinson and the Miracles' \"I Second That Emotion.\" A rival Detroit company, Revilot Records, helped launch one of the great funk performers of the 1970s and '80s, George Clinton, whose \"(I Wanna) Testify\" was a hit in 1967 for Clinton and his group, the Parliaments.

In New York, Bert Berns signed up 21-year-old Van Morrison for Bang Records and produced one of rock's catchiest and most enduring songs, \"Brown Eyed Girl.\" Franklin, producer Jerry Wexler and some top session players completed Franklin's breakthrough album, one she had begun in Muscle Shoals, \"I Never Loved a Man the Way I Love You.\" Soon after, Franklin recorded one of Gerry Goffin's and Carole King's final collaborations and one of her most beloved hits, \"(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman.\"

High art, social consciousness and psychedelic jams were in fashion in '67, but there was space for carefree, radio-friendly singles, from the Turtles' \"Happy Together\" to Jackie Wilson's \"Higher and Higher\" and the Rascals' \"Groovin'.\" The Box Tops' million-selling \"The Letter\" was a showcase for 16-year-old singer Alex Chilton, who became a formative influence on \"alternative rock\" in the following decades.

And the hottest act? A quartet that released four No. 1 albums and topped the charts for more than six months despite criticism that it wasn't a real group.

\"It was a halcyon time for us,\" says Michael Nesmith, of the Monkees.

Hundreds of potential jurors could be interviewed in Pittsburgh this week as a crucial phase of comedian Bill Cosby's sex assault trial gets underway.

The jury must decide if the 79-year-old actor drugged and molested a Temple University women's basketball team manager at his home near Philadelphia in 2004.

Trial consultant Howard Varinsky believes lawyers will be on guard for celebrity worshippers or jurors who may want to serve to write a book.

Cosby is expected to appear in court as jurors are questioned. His wife and daughters have not attended the pretrial hearings over the last 18 months, although his daughters believe he is being unfairly targeted and that race may play a role in what they call unfair attacks. Cosby says his wife has \"never\" waivered in her support.

Cosby calls the encounter with accuser Andrea Constand consensual. The felony charge carries a potential 10-year prison term, but Cosby also is focused on the court of public opinion. He told a talk radio host last week that he hopes to clear his name and resume his career as a writer and performer.

Cosby said he does not expect to testify because of fears he would misspeak.

Montgomery County Judge Steven O'Neill will sequester the jury during the estimated two-week trial because of the frenzied media coverage that is expected. Jurors will be about 300 miles (482 kilometers) from home, across the state in suburban Philadelphia.

The trial starts June 5. One other accuser will be allowed to testify for prosecutors who hope to show that Cosby's encounter with Constand was not accidental but part of a broader pattern of sexual misconduct.

The Associated Press does not typically identify people who say they are sexual assault victims unless they grant permission, which Constand has done.

A run-down of what to expect as a dozen jurors and six alternates are selected:

Q: Why is the jury being picked in Pittsburgh?

A: Cosby's lawyers sought an outside jury because the case had been a flash point in the 2015 race for Montgomery County district attorney. Former prosecutor Bruce Castor, the Republican candidate, had declined to charge Cosby a decade earlier. First Assistant District Attorney Kevin Steele, a Democrat whose office had reopened the case, attacked Castor over the Cosby case in campaign ads.

Q: What will it be like to serve on the jury?

A: In a rare move, the jury will be sequestered near the courthouse in Norristown, some 300 miles (482 kilometers) away from their homes. Court officers will keep close tabs on their cellphone use, TV time and reading material, given the huge media coverage the case will bring. The trial is expected to last about two weeks, but could go longer if rebuttal witnesses are called or the jury struggles to reach a verdict.

Q: What type of jurors will the defense seek?

A: The defense will likely seek jurors who are black, male, older and perhaps celebrity worshippers, in the view of jury consultant Howard Varinksy, who advised prosecutors in the murder trials of Scott Peterson, who was convicted of murdering his pregnant wife, Timothy McVeigh and others. Black jurors may be more willing to doubt police and prosecutors, while older jurors may blame the victim for being in the married Cosby's home, he said. Celebrity worshippers may be sympathetic or try to form a connection to the star, relating to the fact they once saw them in a store or come from the same hometown or have children the same age.

Q: How about the prosecution?

A: Younger jurors may have more modern views of sexual assault cases, especially those, like Cosby's, that involve acquaintance situations or a delay in contacting police. Varinsky expects about one in four jurors to say they or someone close to them has been the victim of a sexual assault. Those individuals would likely be dismissed by the judge.

Q: How much leeway does each side have to pick jurors?

A: Either side can ask the judge to strike a potential juror for cause, without it counting against them. That might include jurors who admit having a biased view of the case, or have a hardship \u2014 a medical condition, family obligation or financial or job situation \u2014 that prevents them from serving. After that, each side can strike seven jurors and three alternates without cause, simply because they sense they fear they would hurt their sides.

Q: Will the jurors be identified?

A: Judge Steven O'Neill plans to keep the jurors' names private. However, the press will be covering the proceedings, reporting on both the nature of the arguments over jury selection and the willingness of people to serve in the high-profile case.

Q: What should I watch for?

A: \u2014Jurors too eager to serve in a celebrity case. Some may even hope to write a book afterward, if past cases are any guide.

\u2014Can the parties find 18 people without strong feelings about the case or Cosby's career? Do they express fond memories of benevolent TV dad Cliff Huxtable or cartoon character Fat Albert? Or are they bitter about Cosby's scolding of the young black community?

\u2014Is the jury pool familiar with the scores of other Cosby accusers? Are people being truthful if they say they're not, given the widespread media coverage?

\u2014What's the final breakdown in terms of men/women; old/young; black/white/other? gay/straight? (Cosby is 79, black, long-married, a father of five, American and a career entertainer. Trial accuser Andrea Constand is 43, white, single, gay, Canadian and a basketball professional-turned-massage therapist.)

\u2014Will politics come into play, subtly or not? Given sex assault allegations raised against President Donald Trump, and his vulgar comments caught on tape about grabbing women, will lawyers try to glean the jurors' political leanings?

Q: Will jurors hear from Cosby during the trial?

A: Cosby told an interviewer this past week that he does not expect to testify, given his fear of wading into trouble while trying to be truthful during cross-examination.

Hello, Drake has surpassed Adele's record at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday, picking up 13 awards.

Adele set a record at the show in 2012 with 12 wins. The rapper, who walked into the show Sunday with 22 nominations, won top artist, top male artist and top Billboard 200 album (\"Views\"), among others, at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

\"I got my whole family up here,\" said Drake, who stood onstage with nearly two dozen people, including his father, Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj.

Drake was presented the top artist award by Prince Jackson, the late Michael Jackson's eldest son. Drake beat out Beyonce, Justin Bieber, Rihanna, Adele, Ariana Grande, the Weeknd, twenty one pilots, Shawn Mendes and the Chainsmokers for the top prize. Of those nominees, only Drake and the Chainsmokers attended the Billboard Awards.

But other big names showed up.

Cher, who received the Icon award, sang her dance anthem \"Believe\" in a glittery number that included pasties and blonde hair with pink tips. She later changed to a huge, curly black 'do \u2014 and wore a black sheer bodysuit and leather jacket for \"If I Could Turn Back Time.\" Her performance had the audience on its feet, singing and dancing.

\"I wanted to do what I do since I was 4 years old and I've been doing it for 53 years,\" said Cher, who turned 71 on Saturday. \"And I can do a five-minute plank. Just saying.\"

\"I think luck has so much to do with my success with a little bit of something thrown in,\" she added.

Korean boy band BTS, who won top social artist, earned one of the night's loudest ovations. Another highlight was Celine Dion.

In a beautiful, Met Gala-ready white gown, she belted out \"My Heart Will Go On,\" the Oscar-winning song from \"Titanic.\" The film is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. John Legend and Florida Georgia Line also had a shining moment when they sang a duet version of the country duo's soft hit, \"H.O.L.Y.\"

Dan Reynolds of the rock band Imagine Dragons led a moment of silence for Chris Cornell, who died Thursday. He called the Soundgarden and Audioslave singer \"a true innovator,\" ''a musical architect,\" ''a prolific songwriting\" and \"a legendary performer\" \u2014 as a large photo of Cornell singing with his eyes closed was displayed behind him.

\"We send our respects as well as our love to Chris' family at this time,\" Reynolds said.

Miley Cyrus sang her breezy new single, \"Malibu,\" delivering a sound and muted style that marked a departure from the hits that made her a pop star years ago. She was teary eyed at the end of the performance.

\"And for the first time in years with pants on,\" Noah Cyrus, standing next to father Billy Ray Cyrus, introduced her older sister, who was wearing white shorts and a cowboy hat.

Minaj kicked off the show with an explosive nine-minute performance of her hit songs alongside her mentor Lil Wayne and frequent collaborator David Guetta. She recently broke Aretha Franklin's record for most songs placed on the Billboard Hot 100 chart by a female artist.

Co-host Vanessa Hudgens impersonated Minaj's rap style at the top of the show, and it was the first of the many good moments for the actress and singer Sunday night. Hudgens, who hosted with Ludacris, also sang Dion's \"I'm Your Lady\" and wowed with her fashion choices. Even Drake noticed her, saying she looked \"incredible.\"

Beyonce and twenty one pilots each won five awards, while the Chainsmokers \u2014 who tied Drake with 22 nominations \u2014 won four awards, including top Hot 100 song for \"Closer\" with Halsey.

\"This feels good but it feels so wrong because I love Drake so much,\" said Halsey (Drake's \"One Dance\" was also nominated for top Hot 100 song).

The Chainsmokers performed \"Young\" with Andrew Taggart on vocals and Alex Pall behind the board (they were also backed by a drummer), and Drake performed from the Fountains of Bellagio. Ed Sheeran sang \"Castle on the Hill\" from Santiago, Chile, while Bruno Mars performed his silky new single, \"Versace on the Floor,\" from Amsterdam.

Other performers include Lorde, Sam Hunt, Halsey, Camila Cabello and Julia Michaels.

At the show, Diddy honored his former friend and artist Notorious B.I.G, who would have turned 45 on Sunday. Diddy also introduced CJ Wallace, B.I.G's son, who spoke about his father's legacy. Then Diddy showed the trailer of the documentary, \"Can't Stop, Won't Stop: A Bad Boy Story,\" which will be available on Apple Music on June 25.

Former One Direction singer Zayn was named best new artist, while Justin Timberlake's Oscar-nominated \"Can't Stop the Feeling!\" won top radio song and top selling song.

Blake Shelton won top country artist and showed love for his beau and fellow singer Gwen Stefani.

\"I felt like the luckiest guy in the room 'cause Gwen was here with me anyway,\" he said.

The Latest on the 2017 Billboard Music Awards at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas (all times local):

7:45 p.m.

Actress and singer Cher served up her greatest songs and fashions during her performance at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday. This year's Icon Award recipient delivered a Las Vegas-worthy performance of her '90s dance hit \"Believe\" in a body-revealing outfit and white wig surrounded by dancers.

She returned in another iconic look: teased curly black hair and leather jacket over a sparkling jumpsuit as she sang \"If I Could Turn Back Time.\"

The 71-year-old bragged that she had a career that lasted five decades and could still do a five-minute plank.

__

7:30 p.m.

A moment of silence was observed during the 2017 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday for Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell who was found dead Thursday in his hotel room in Detroit.

Dan Reynolds of Imagine Dragons said in the tribute that Cornell, who also sang lead in the band Audioslave, was a singer who had \"a voice for the ages.\"

A leader of the grunge movement spreading out of Seattle, the 52-year-old will be buried Friday in Los Angeles.

__

6:47 p.m.

Celine Dion performed her classic \"My Heart Will Go On,\" at the Billboard Music Awards 20 years after the song was a chart topper. The song became iconic as the theme song for the blockbuster film, \"Titanic,\" and won an Academy Award for best original song.

Singing under a giant sparkling chandelier, Dion was resplendent in white with giant puffy sleeves and her voice was as strong as ever on Sunday in Las Vegas.

Another Canadian was also having a great night as Drake was cleaning up with 12 awards before the show reached the halfway mark at the T-Mobile Arena.

__

6:02 p.m.

Miley Cyrus introduced a new version of her persona, the low-key, in love Miley, when she performed her new song \"Malibu,\" at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas on Sunday.

The new Miley is a far cry from the previous Disney child star who shocked consistently audiences for years with her twerking and singing nude atop a giant wrecking ball.

Her sister Noah Cyrus noted in the intro that her sister, who is engaged to Liam Hemsworth, was \"the happiest she had ever been.\" The singer didn't dance, but performed the acoustic driven slow-burning song in front of giant images of the beach and ocean and ended the song with teary eyes.

The Chainsmokers, a leading nominee, picked up the first televised award of the night with Halsey for top collaboration for their song \"Closer.\" Drake led the winners with 12 awards. He has 22 nominations.

___

5:09 p.m.

Nicki Minaj opened the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas with an explosive nine-minute set of her top songs \u2014 including \"No Frauds\" a response to a diss track from Remy Ma.

At various points, she was joined by Lil Wayne, DJ David Guetta and Jason Derulo.

Vanessa Hudgens, hosting the show on ABC with Ludacris, imitated Minaj's rap onstage and earned applause from the crowd. Hudgens also sang some of Celine Dion's \"I'm Your Lady\" (Dion will perform later in the show).

Drake and Beyonce were among the early winners. Drake had earned 10 awards in early winners announced Sunday morning and picked up an 11th for top male artist in the first minutes of the show. Beyonce earned five in the early winners.

Drake and the Chainsmokers are top contenders with 22 nominations each.

___

6:35 a.m.

Drake will walk into the 2017 Billboard Music Awards already a winner: He earned 10 early awards.

The rapper and the electronic dance duo the Chainsmokers were top contenders with 22 nominations each.

The early winners announced Sunday morning by dick clark productions included Beyonce, who won five and twenty one pilots, who won four. The Chainsmokers picked up three honors in the early announcement.

The Billboard Awards will be held Sunday night at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, where more awards will be announced.

Cher, Miley Cyrus, Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran, Drake and the Chainsmokers will perform at the show airing live on ABC. Imagine Dragons will speak about Chris Cornell's influence on the band ahead of their performance.

MOSCOW (AP) \u2014 Relics of Saint Nicholas, one of the Russian Orthodox Church's most revered figures, arrived in Moscow on Sunday from an Italian church where they have lain for 930 years. Intense media coverage accompanied the arrival, underlining the church's influence in post-Soviet Russia.

After reaching Vnukovo airport, a glass-topped metallic ark bearing one of the saint's ribs was visited by a long stream of pilgrims who bowed and kissed the container. It was then taken to Christ the Savior Cathedral, the enormous Moscow church that is a reconstruction of a cathedral dynamited in 1931 by officially atheistic Soviet authorities.

The relics are to be moved to St. Petersburg in mid-June before being returned a month later to the church in Bari, Italy, where they have been kept since 1087. Large crowds of Orthodox faithful are expected to visit the relics in Russia.

An agreement to send the relics to Russia was made last year between Pope Francis and Patriarch Kirill during the first meeting of the heads of the Russian and Roman Catholic churches.

At the cathedral, Kirill said Nicholas is credited with many miracles and \"with the deliverance of the Fatherland and our people from many, many historical catastrophes.\"

Nicholas, who is known in the Russian church as Nikolai Chudotvorets (the Miracle-worker), was the Bishop of Myra, now the Turkish city of Demre. He is revered for reports of his generosity.

One story attached to him is that he provided gold coins as dowries to three daughters of a poor man who worried that they would remain unmarried and fall into disrepute. According to some versions of the story, the coins were thrown through a window and landed in stockings hanging up to dry.

The story is the precursor of the Christmas tradition of children hanging stockings to receive gifts; the name Santa Claus is a variant of Saint Nicholas.

Among the miracles attributed to him is that he persuaded merchants to unload grain from a ship to feed a town suffering from famine and that the grain was replenished when the ship reached its final port.

State TV news channel Rossiya-24 devoted hours of live coverage to the departure of the relics from Bari and their arrival in Moscow, at one point showing split-screen shots of the plane taxiing at the airports in both cities.

Although Russia officially is secular, the moral authority of the Orthodox Church has grown steadily under President Vladimir Putin, who sides with the church in promoting traditional family values. The church's opposition to gay rights is seen as a driver of Russia's law banning dissemination of so-called gay \"propaganda\" to minors.

Orthodox activists have forced the closure of some art exhibitions and last year succeeded in banning a provincial theater's planned production of \"Jesus Christ Superstar.\"
