Blake reacts to his win [photo: Oxygen Network]"Glee" creator Ryan Murphy was on a mission to find a superstar via this year's second season of "The Glee Project" (possibly the finest talent competition on television, and ironically a show I find infinitely more fascinating than "Glee" itself). And Ryan found a star indeed. While I admit that I would have been thrilled if either of "The Glee Project 2's" phenomenally talented and very deserving runners-up, Aylin Bayramoglu and Ali Stroker, had won that coveted seven-episode arc on "Glee" (and I still cling to the hope that they'll be given "Glee" roles of their own in the future), I am delighted for Blake Jenner, who was declared the new "Glee Project" winner this week.Read More »from ‘Glee Project’ Winner Blake Jenner Talks ‘Glee’ Dreams & Parrot-Poop Nightmares

While many contestants from the "X Factor" franchise--like America's Chris Rene, Marcus Canty, and Rachel Crow, and the U.K.'s Cher Lloyd, Rebecca Ferguson, and Little Mix--continue to make inroads with their music, the darkly beautiful new tunes from "The X Factor U.K.'s" Aiden Grimshaw may comprise my favorite "X Factor" output yet. Aiden was a Dannii Minogue-mentored contestant on the seventh season of "The X Factor U.K." (the same season that spawned Cher, Rebecca, and of course, One Direction), and while he disappointingly only placed ninth, he thankfully secured a record deal with RCA/Syco anyway--and now his debut album, Misty Eye, is about to get some serious rotation in my iPod.Read More »from Aiden Grimshaw May Be “The X Factor U.K.’s” Coolest Import

Mia Michaels returnsAfter going on hiatus for two frustrating weeks (rather than go toe-to-pointe-toe with NBC's prime-time Olympics coverage), "So You Think You Can Dance" finally returned to Fox this Wednesday. And the remaining 14 dancers faced a truly Olympian challenge: recreating (and, ideally, even topping) the iconic routines of "SYTYCD's" most beloved genius choreographer, Madame Mia Michaels, as originally danced by some of the series' most beloved contestants (like Katee Shean, Twitch Boss, even Travis Wall). So the pressure was on. Anything less than total murderation would basically be unacceptable.Read More »from ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ Top 14 Recap: Mama Mia!
photo: Todd Oren / WireImageCongratulations, Spencer Pratt. You are officially no longer The Worst Reality TV Singer Of All Time. That (dis)honor now goes to MTV D-lister Farrah Abraham, of "Teen Mom" semi-fame, whose inappropriately titled debut single, "Finally Getting Up From Rock Bottom," puts her atop this list for 2012--and possibly in the recording hall of shame for life. Congratulations also go out to "Jersey Shore's" the Situation, because with the deserved addition of Farrah to this countdown, Sitch (who squeezed in at number 10 last year with his eponymous rap abomination, "The Situation") has been fist-pumped right off the list.Read More »from The Worst Reality TV Singers Ever: The 2012 List

More than three years after his season of "American Idol" ended, Adam Lambert's hair, both on his head and on his face, remains the hot topic of much online debate. Elvis hair or emo hair? Blue Manic Panic stripe or Vanilla Ice stripes? Clip-on ponytail or no? Goatee or beard-free? There was even one time when he tweeted a pic of the side of his head freshly shaved, and Twitter basically exploded. Well, the engineers over at Twitter better have some backup servers in place, just in case, now that the forever-shapeshifting Glamerican Idol has just tweeted another photo of what may be his most extreme follicle makeover yet.Read More »from Adam Lambert’s Blonde Ambition: His Most Dramatic ‘Do Yet!
