Mariah Carey has officially joined ‘American Idol‘ as a judge for Season 12, which kicks off in 2013. Congrats not only to Carey but to Fox on this major, major coup. While it seemed that producers had a challenge on their hands in trying to find a suitable A-list replacement for the departing Jennifer Lopez, they outdiva-ed the diva with this addition.
Rumors of Jennifer Lopez supposedly leaving ‘American Idol‘ flooded every kind of news wave imaginable. Yet Aerosmith frontman and ‘Idol’ judge Steven Tyler was the first to announce his exit from the reality show competition. And, as we all know now, Lopez followed suit soon after and confirmed her departure from the show.
After two seasons, Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler has chosen to leave his role as a judge on ‘American Idol.’ Tyler made the announcement via press release, smack dab in the middle of speculation that Charlie Sheen is up for a slot on the panel and right after Jennifer Lopez, who joined the same season as Tyler, said that she thinks it’s time for her to go. Will Randy ‘Yo! Dawg!’ Jackson be the sole judge to remain?
Season 2 of the all new and revamped ‘X Factor’ is in full swing audition mode, which has fans beyond stoked for Britney Spears and Demi Lovato to make their official primetime TV debuts! That’s to say nothing of the excitement to see Simon Cowell bicker with the ladies. According to The Wrap, FOX has revealed that fans will be able to see the fruits of the audition process and the ladies in judging mode on Sept. 12, when the sophomore season premieres.
There have been allegations before that certain reality TV shows — like ‘Cash Cab’ — are fake, but the website Hooked on Houses claims to have conclusive first-hand proof that HGTV’s ‘House Hunters,’ which follows people as they search for a new home, is heavily scripted. Wait, you mean the couple from Montana didn’t want the three-bedroom, 2.5 bath fixer-upper???
The episode tonight places the judges of ‘America’s Got Talent‘ in Austin, Texas. With festivals like SXSW and Fantastic Fest in this town, we figure there’s at least a few of the Austin townfolk who must be pretty talented. At least we hope so…
On tonight’s episode (May 31) of ‘Duets‘ — the second ever — the superstars and their amateur partners performed some of the most famous duets in history. They’re going big on this show. Next week will find one of the amateurs being sent home, so things are heating up.
Here’s your PopCrush recap of how things shook down this evening.
Ratings for ‘American Idol‘ may have been down this season, but fans of winner Phillip Phillips helped the 21-year-old score one of the biggest digital sales weeks of any contestant in the show’s history. Phillips sold 278,000 copies of ‘Home’ last week, helping the coronation song land at No. 2 on the Digital Songs chart and No. 10 on the Billboard Hot 100.
