POP MUSIC Lascivious R&B singer Trey Songz debuted at No. 1 on the U.S. pop charts this year with "Chapter V," his first No 1 album. Its pleasures are obvious – Songz has a likable falsetto and just enough balance between smooth and swaggering to make his radio-ready hits feel seductive and immediate. Nokia Theatre, 77 Chick Hearn Ct., L.A. 7:30 p.m. Sun. $50-$100. Nokiatheatre.com.

MUSIC Some of us love the lusty, batty R. Kelly whose come-ons could make Prince blush. But his latest album, "Love Letter," isn't that record. Instead, it's steeped in vintage Stax and Motown. "When a Woman Loves" gracefully nods to Otis Redding's "I've Got Dreams to Remember" while giving Kells a smoky, tempered backdrop to tap decades of undeserving-man ballads. Wait for the pleading a cappella bridge, which goes on three times as long as it needs to — and it scorches. Nokia Theatre, 777 Chick Hearn Court, L.A. 7 p.m. Sat.-Sun.

A toast to Imagine Dragons for snagging the award for alternative artist at the American Music Awards. The band's rendition of "Demons" at the annual show, best described as a combo dubstep-rock-Blue Man Group tribute, was truly alternative -- part Nickelback, part Vegas spectacle. The entertainment and the song suggested a brand of rebellion akin to ordering a McRib at McDonald's instead of a Big Mac. Their gig during Sunday night's broadcast of the worst music award ceremony of the year -- no small feat -- offered ample evidence.

Before Kobe Bryant spoke Thursday night at "Kobe Up Close Hosted by Jimmy Kimmel," Robert Horry took the stage. "[Bryant] has all kinds of accolades, all kinds of praise going, but he's still working hard every day," Horry said. "It makes you want to work hard. That's what guys realize when they come to the Lakers organization. " Bryant and Horry won three rings together with the Lakers (2000-02) but the former teammates didn't always see eye to eye. Bryant's intensity in practice and even in games could be a little much for a seasoned veteran like Horry.

It's been one of the most fruitful composer-director collaborations in modern Hollywood. Danny Elfman has scored 15 movies by Tim Burton, starting with "Pee-Wee's Big Adventure" in 1985 and leading up to last year's "Dark Shadows" and "Frankenweenie. " For the first time in the U.S., Elfman is to present his scores for Burton's films in an orchestral concert performance, scheduled appropriately enough for Halloween night at the Nokia Theatre in downtown Los Angeles. "Danny Elfman's Music from the Films of Tim Burton" will feature conductor John Mauceri leading the 87-piece Hollywood Symphony Orchestra and the 45-member Page L.A. Choir.
