‘American Idol‘ sure is looking to fill the heels, er, judging spot, vacated by Jennifer Lopez, with someone bigger and better! The show is reportedly thisclose to replacing one diva with another in the form of Mariah Carey. O to the M to the F to the G. The five octave Carey as an ‘Idol’ judge? So much for those rumors that ‘Idol’ was planning to downsize for Season 12. Producers are shooting for the stratosphere if they close this deal.
Bridgit Mendler, star of the Disney Channel’s ‘Good Luck Charlie,’ will drop ‘Ready or Not,’ the first single from her debut album ‘Hello My Name Is…,’ on Aug. 3 via Radio Disney. The song, which blonde beauty Bridgit even co-wrote, will be available for purchase on Aug. 7.
(Now former) ‘American Idol‘ judges Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler each announced their departure from the show this week, with Lopez announcing that she was moving on during a chat with ‘Idol’ host Ryan Seacrest on Friday (July 13). Tyler beat her to the punch, releasing a statement about his imminent exit the day before. Now a report has surfaced indicating that each judge was fired, even though the show allowed them to bow out gracefully.
On last Thursday’s (July 5) episode of ‘Duets,’ superstar coaches Kelly Clarkson and John Legend teamed up for a blockbuster duet on the standard ‘You Don’t Know Me.’ The twosome sang the classic, much loved tune while seated, likely due to the fact that Clarkson has a hairline fracture in her foot and can’t stand easily. While she may be hobbling, it had absolutely no affect on that beautiful voice of hers.

After last night’s (March 1) Top 10 and three wild cards were revealed on Season 11 of ‘American Idol,’ host Ryan Seacrest revealed that the female contestants comprising the Top 13 will belt out Whitney Houston songs next week during the performance episode. As for the seven boys? They will be tasked with performing songs by Stevie Wonder.
The news that pop diva Whitney Houston has died at the age of 48 is still sinking in, with scant few details available about how Houston died. The mystery deepens, as members of the singer’s immediate family were in contact with her right before her untimely passing.
Apparently, Houston’s mother Cissy as well as her cousin and fellow singer Dionne Warwick both spoke to the ‘The Greatest Love of All’ singer on the phone just before her death and Houston seemed fine at the time.
It’s a holiday wonderland and shopper’s paradise in the video for the Mariah Carey and Justin Bieber redo of her 1990s neo-classic ‘All I Want for Christmas Is You.’ The clip for this upbeat holiday anthem is bright and sparkly, and there appears to be a hint of crushing going on in this May-December collaboration.
