The Broadway revival of "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying" will end its run at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre in New York on May 20, organizers announced this week. The musical, which currently stars pop singer Nick Jonas, will have played 473 regular performances by the time it closes. "How to Succeed" has been a profitable production, recouping its initial $9-million investment in December, according to organizers. But the musical recently has seen its box-office fortunes decline.

Before Demi Lovato appeared in the flesh, she appeared on-screen -- the central figure in an underwater video sequence projected above the stage at Anaheim's Honda Center. The introduction was in keeping with Lovato's path as an entertainer, which began with work in children's television - first on “Barney & Friends” and later in a series of cheery Disney Channel properties - then moved into real-world pop stardom. Yet the clip that opened Thursday's concert wasn't flashing back to her kiddie-sitcom past.

Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.). Jonas publicly revealed that he has Type 1 diabetes while performing at a Diabetes Research Institute fundraiser in 2007.

Pop & Jazz Previews by August Brown (A.B.) and Reed Johnson (R.J.) Year Long Disaster With an album title like "Black Magic: All Mysteries Revealed" you'd expect this power trio to sound like Celtic Frost meets Procol Harum. But instead they deliver druggy, pummeling scuzz rock of the highest order (A.B.) Spaceland, 1717 Silver Lake Blvd., L.A. 8 p.m. Mon. Free. www.clubspaceland.com Nick Jonas & the Administration Enlisting a good swath of Prince's backing band might have been the best move the young Jonas could have made for his second -- and decidedly more adult -- solo venture.

Would the struggling "American Idol" show be more fun if the judges' onstage Coke cups were replaced with pimp cups filled with gin and juice? Snoop Lion -- the reggae singer who until very recently was known as the rap god Snoop Dogg -- suggested in an interview with Huffington Post that he's tossing his hat in to fill the departing Steven Tyler's seat on the show's judging panel. At a New York press volley introducing himself to the media in his new incarnation, he said that after learning of Mariah Carey's reported $18-million payday to join the judging panel, he wanted to bring a little irie to "Idol.

The Jonas Brothers have broken up as a musical group, they announced Tuesday, and on Wednesday they went on "Good Morning America" to explain why the band is no more. Sort of. Well, they did explain, but it wasn't much fun. Funereal is more like it. Basically, the explanation boiled down to "we're family first" and "we were butting heads over the music. " Which was woefully free of the kind of behind-the-scenes scandal that would make the breakup more interesting. Nick Jonas said he was the one who first broached the topic with the other guys.

"Good Luck Charlie," a new Disney Channel sitcom premiering Sunday, differs from other Disney Channel sitcoms in that, although the focus is reliably on the teen and preteen members of its cast, it is a family comedy. That is to say, the adults are less marginal to the action than they usually are in these things, though no less confused and ineffectual. In t(w)een TV, the kids always take care of the kids. That notion is built into the very premise of the show. Because Dad and Mom (Eric Allan Kramer and Leigh-Allyn Baker)

Has there ever been a better moment for tween girls? "Hannah Montana" and "Wizards of Waverly Place" reign on the Disney Channel. Tween idol Taylor Swift rules the radio. There are even tween girls in the White House. Since mega-successes like "High School Musical," Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers showed execs the way, pop culture has been flooded with tween girl entertainment. And yet another promising series about a cool teen girl, "Victorious," debuts on Nickelodeon on Saturday. But what about the boys?

This year's Grammy nominations promise to inspire loud raspberry choruses from several corners of the popular music world. The top categories, including album of the year and record of the year, are dominated by acts at the very center of the mainstream, suggesting that sales, more than more genteel artistic standards, impressed nominators this year. The Black Eyed Peas, not exactly critics' favorites, received more nominations than anyone except for Beyoncé and Taylor Swift -- more respected artists who've nonetheless worn out their welcome at the winners' dais lately.
