Many singing-show judge castings have been controversial, or at least eyebrow-raising (Nicki Minaj on "American Idol" and Britney Spears on "The X Factor USA" come to mind). But the latest reality-casting news thundering Down Under just may be the oddest yet. This week it was mind-bogglingly announced that the new judge for "The X Factor Australia," replacing former panelist (and original "Australian Idol" winner) Guy Sebastian, is...Redfoo.

Midas Whale vs. Patrick DoddThe third Battle Rounds episode of "The Voice" Season 4 aired this Monday, and while Shakira used up all her Steals last Monday like a giddy kid opening all her Christmas presents on December 1st, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, and Usher still had Steals in play this week. And those three coaches came ready to do some serious poaching. They were stealing and dealing all over the place. By the end of Monday's show, Blake and Adam had given away their last Steals, while Usher, who hadn't stolen anyone yet, finally snagged one of Shakira's castoffs for his own team. Some of these coaches' decisions made sense. Others, not so much. And some, not at all.
Here's what went down during Monday night's surprising Battle Rounds:

Usher pitted two of his best R&B singers against each other, which wasn't exactly the shrewdest move. Why would he want to give up either of these contestants--or run the risk of having one of them stolen away by a rival coach and used

Khloe is out, Mario is in for "The X Factor" Season 3 [photo: Fox]First L.A. Reid jumped the Titanic-esque sinking ship that is "The X Factor." Then Britney Spears jumped--or maybe she was pushed. And way before that, Season 1's Paula Abdul, Nicole Scherzinger, and Steve Jones were all shown the Fox exit door. And now it has been confirmed that last year's co-host, Khloe Kardashian--arguably the least loathable Kardashian, who was presumably drafted by Simon Cowell to boost the show's ratings (but didn't)--will not be coming back to "The X Factor" after her one-season run.Read More »from Khloe Kardashian Officially X’d Out of ‘The X Factor’; Mario Lopez Returning
Last night was a very nostalgic night "American Idol," as the top five results show featured performances by old-school "Idol" favorites Fantasia and Clay Aiken and well as a surprise appearance by former judge Paula Abdul, who reclaimed her center seat at the judging table and looked right at home. Yay!
It was such a feelgood episode, in fact, that my "The Day After" cohost Matt Whitfield and I were barely even sad when the show ended on a bummer note as Janelle Arthur was sent home. Simply nothing could ruin our nostalgic buzz. Watch us talk about last night's walk down memory lane in our latest recap chat below!Read More »from American Idol, The Day After: Top 5 Results Dish
