The gloves are off. With the debut season of ‘X Factor‘ in the rear view, nabbing significantly less viewers than ‘American Idol‘ expat Simon Cowell had hoped, and the 11th season of ‘Idol’ kicking off Jan. 18 (only to be tailed by ‘The Voice‘), producers are taking a few verbal swipes at the competition. And why not? ‘Idol’ has nearly double the viewers of ‘X Factor,’ due to an 11-year brand.
There’s no one quite like Ryan Seacrest, which is precisely why FOX is trying so hard to keep him as the host of ‘American Idol.’ Seacrest’s $45 million contract is up for renewal, but it’s possible that he won’t be returning to run the hit singing competition.
Jennifer Hudson shines in a strapless, curve-hugging icy-blue dress and with a sleek blow out on the December/January cover of Ebony. While she’s smiling on the cover, the Oscar-winning singer opens up about an incredibly difficult subject in the accompanying story: how the decision to visit her fiancée David Otunga in Florida for a WWE event, as opposed to returning home to Chicago, saved her life.
‘American Idol’ duo Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina have been dogged by rumors of romance for months — to the point where their fans have given the alleged couple their own mashed-up nickname, McLaina.
Anyone hoping for a public confession of love can stop hoping, however. Although both of them have winked and played along with the rumors, both McCreery and Alaina have come out to officially lay them to rest.
“I am delighted to say that all three judges, along with the brilliant host of ‘American Idol’ are back for the next season,” he told Seacrest, who happens to be the aforementioned “brilliant host” of ‘Idol.’
In the grand ‘Idol’ tradition of romantic first singles, ‘I Love You This Big’ is a heartstring-tugging ballad, and fans have no doubt been waiting to see whose heart McCreery would melt in the video. So who does he end up with in the big romantic finish?
Jennifer Lopez was a big part of 'American Idol's' resurgence last season, but she hasn't committed to another run on the show, so producers are reportedly looking for a replacement -- and rumors are pointing to Shania Twain.
With more than 60 million albums' worth of worldwide sales to her name, Twain certainly knows a thing or two about what it takes to achieve commercial success -- and just as Lopez was emerging from a recording lull in the months leading up to her joining the 'Idol' team, Twain is preparing to end a long musical hiatus.
