Mariah as an "Idol" mentor on Season 7 [photo: AmericanIdol.com]Mariah Carey's husband Nick Cannon may have boasted that "American Idol" couldn't afford to hire his superstar wife, but apparently he spoke too soon: Monday morning at Fox's Television Critics Association presentation, it was announced that "Idol's" new judge is in fact Mrs. Cannon, aka the one and only Mariah Carey. Call it the Idolization of Mimi, if you will.Read More »from Mariah Carey Is The New ‘Idol’ Judge: 5 Reasons Why She Actually May Be Good

photo: ABC"Duets," ABC's summer talent show with an allstar judging panel consisting of Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, Robin Thicke, and Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles, started off with promise, but then everything went wrong with the show--so much so that by the time it wrapped up this Thursday, so few people were tuning in, the "Duets" finale was actually THE lowest-rated episode of its entire season.
And the few fans that did turn in probably didn't find it to be a particularly dramatic finale, when the contestant that had been the leaderboard-topping frontrunner all season long, Team Jennifer's soulman J Rome, was crowned the champion. It was an easily predicted victory that made Javier Colon's triumph on"The Voice" look like a shocking upset.Read More »from ICYMI: Some Guy Named J Rome Won Some Show Called ‘Duets’

This week on a UStream chat, Season 11 "Idol" runner-up Jessica Sanchez revealed that she has a new boyfriend, and it's none other than fellow S11 teen sensation DeAndre Brackensick. Aw...
"I got a secret and I want you guys to guess. I'll nod if it's no or yes," Jessica teased during the Thursday chat. When one fan asked if the secret was about her lovelife ("GOT A BOYFRIEND?"), Jessica answered, "DeAndre. Hahah. He's my boyfriend. Love you guys. Byeeee!"Read More »from Cute Idol Couple Alert!

photo: Fox"American Idol" isn't having its best year. First, the once-unstoppable Fox institution experienced a 23 percent dip in ratings during Season 11. Then its two superstar judges, Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez, quit last week, leaving the show in a state of flux. And now, for the first time ever, "Idol" has been snubbed in the Emmys' Outstanding Reality-Competition Program category. That's gotta hurt.
Adding insult to injury is the fact that "Idol's" biggest rival program, "The Voice," was nominated. Ouch.Read More »from ‘American Idol’ Is Not In It To Win It At This Year’s Emmys

This week's bottom sixThis week's "So You Think You Can Dance" show began with the top 20 dancers doing a Nappytabs routine to Marilyn Manson's "The Beautiful People," but by the end of the episode, six of these beautiful people were in jeopardy, having received the fewest votes from the week before--and four of them were eliminated by the judges, in the first results reveal of Season 9. It is, of course, never easy to see any contestant go home on a program featuring so many talented hopefuls, and this evening certainly was no different--especially when it came to the two male contestants who got the ax, both of whom had such potential.Read More »from The ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ Top 20 Become The Top 16
