Scottish rockers Primal Scream wrapped up their slot at Britain's Glastonbury festival on Saturday (29Jun13) by bringing newcomers Haim onstage for the finale. The Country Girl hitmakers took to the Pyramid Stage to warm up the crowd ahead of The Rolling Stones' much anticipated headlining set, and the band thrilled fans by playing its greatest hits as well as new material.
They finished with a bang by inviting sibling trio Haim to sing back-up on their last few songs, including Rocks.
Haim's first appearance on Glastonbury's Pyramid Stage on Friday (28Jun13) was nearly marred by disaster - diabetic bassist Este walked off when her blood-sugar ran dangerously low.
She later explained, "I remember not being able to feel my arms, and I was like, 'This is not a normal feeling when I'm playing music'... I thought that I was going to die in front of 25,000 people."
The hard-working sisters also performed on The Park Stage on Saturday.
On April 18, the world lost a true television legend when news broke that Dick Clark had passed away. Since then, TV shows and networks have been scrambling to find a fitting way to pay tribute to such a monumental figure who asked for so little and gave so much. Here's a look at which shows are gearing up to pay homage to Clark's memory. And given everything he's done for the entertainment industry as a whole, the list is sure to keep on growing.
On April 19, Ryan Seacrest revealed via Twitter that he and executive producer Nigel Lythgoe are “putting together a tribute for Dick Clark” on tonight’s episode of American Idol in honor of Clark's memory. It seems like a fitting tribute for the man who basically jump-started the music industry as his longtime stint on American Bandstand. Seacrest even made a brief but emotional mention of his late Rockin' Eve co-host Tuesday night on Idol, saying, “Without Dick, a show like this would not exist."
Meanwhile, GSN (aka Game Show Network), also announced their plans to air an original remembrance of Clark on $25,000 Pyramid over the next several days, and add an hour of Pyramid to its Saturday schedule. "We're very sorry to hear of the passing of Dick Clark," GSN posted on their website. "To honor the beloved host, we will be airing a 15-second tribute during all the regular runs of $25,000 Pyramid on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday of this week."
So far those seem to be the only big tributes happening, but more are sure to come in the near future. Which shows would you like to see honor Clark's memory? Glee? Dancing With the Stars? Community? (Hey, it could happen). Sound off in the comments below!

Dick Clark's Best TV Moments
Blushing bride Julia Roberts told ABC's Diane Sawyer on Monday that she was "born to love" her new husband, cameraman Danny Moder. Speaking about her secret July 4 midnight wedding for the first time, Roberts described Moder, whom she met while filming The Mexican, as "a man among men, unselfish and all-encompassing." Even though the actress has had a rather shaky history in her love life, she told Sawyer, "I hope there are some people who agree that I have done some good, some kind things in my life, but to really ultimately stand fully in a moment of realizing that I was born to love, and to be the wife of, this man."
Roberts also spoke publicly for the first time on her split with actor Benjamin Bratt, who recently married actress Talisa Soto (they are expecting their first child). Roberts said Bratt made his own choices and "all the better because he was unhappy, and he left and moved along and found happiness."
Samuel L. Jackson won't be making a movie with a rapper-turned-actor anytime soon. He commented to the Sacramento Bee that he believes the trend of taking rap singers and making them movie stars is an "aberration." He explained, "I know there's some young actor sitting in New York or L.A. who's spent half of his life learning how to act and sacrificing to learn his craft but isn't going to get his opportunity...because of some actor who's been created."
Andy Garcia is poised to join Ashley Judd and Samuel L. Jackson (and no rap singers in sight) in Paramount's Blackout. The Hollywood Reporter describes the film as a female-driven gritty thriller in which a police detective (Judd) investigating a murder finds her past lovers dying around her. Garcia would play a fellow colleague and potential love interest. He just shouldn't get too close.
Continuing the rap theme, Ja Rule is set to join the sequel The Fast and the Furious 2, reprising his role as street racer Edwin. He'll get more screen time in this go-around, as he co-stars with Paul Walker and Tyrese, two undercover cops who once again hit the street-racing scene to bring down a formidable drug trafficker.
Christina Applegate is in negotiations to star with Ben Affleck in DreamWorks' Surviving Christmas. The project focuses on a rich record executive (Affleck) who, rather than spend the holidays by himself, rents the family who now lives in his old childhood home. Applegate would play the family's well-educated scientist daughter.
Bet Regis Philbin never thought he'd be someone's inspiration. Donny Osmond told The Associated Press he credits the Who Wants to Be a Millionaire host for making game-show hosts cool again, as he takes on the host role this September in Pyramid. The game show is a syndicated revival of $25,000 Pyramid and $100,000 Pyramid, which Dick Clark hosted in the 1970s and '80s.
"Hey, hey, we're the Monkees!" We could be hearing those immortal lyrics once again as NBC is looking to revive the '60s pop quartet format that made stars out of Monkees band members Mickey Dolenz, Davy Jones, Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork. NBC would be looking for a new group, with a fall 2003 launch date.
Death Row Records mogul Marion "Suge" Knight will be publishing his autobiography in 2003. The as-yet-untitled book will look at Knight's life, including his tumultuous relationships with Tupac Shakur, Biggie Smalls, Snoop Dogg and Sean "P. Diddy" Combs, as well as his five years in prison.
A new version of the game show Pyramid, to be hosted by Donny Osmond, has landed its first station deal with KRON San Francisco on Monday, Reuters reported.
Columbia TriStar TV Distribution is not naming the show The $25,000 Pyramid because the top prize has still to be determined. The show is set to start on fall 2002 and will run twice a day. A Columbia TriStar spokeswoman told Reuters that because the show will be syndicated, other markets in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago could also require clearances before it can be considered a project. New station deals will be announced soon.
Two teams, each composed of one celebrity and one non-celebrity contestant, compete. One team chooses one of six subject categories that are displayed on a large pyramid. Each subject contains seven related objects; one player has to relate each subject to his partner in one word clues (within a thirty-second time limit).
The player who scores highest (each plays three categories) wins the game and receives the opportunity to win money by attempting to guess seven subjects on a large board within sixty seconds.
