Luke Burbank, host of the radio show and podcast "Too Beautiful to Live," brings us his wrap-up of the week’s awesome and not awesome news.

In the 'better late than never' file, The Who will perform a make-up concert in Providence, RI, 33 years after their scheduled date. The original concert was canceled due to safety concerns.

Move over Roseanne Barr, another candidate for worst national anthem performance is making the internet rounds. 11 year old Harper Gruzins turned in a performance before a Major League Soccer game in Dallas, TX that's not receiving the ravest reviews.

And eight Olympic badminton athletes have been disqualified for purposefully throwing matches to set up a more favorable schedule.
