Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez, and Harry Connick Jr. are officially your new American Idol judges.
Keith was the only remaining judge from last year and J. Lo returned for a cool $15 million dollars after leaving the show before. Harry is the only real new judge.-DocFB
Diagnosis: They need a break out star this season or this show is done. Officially....
Adam Lambert was out and about in West Hollywood yesterday where he stopped to pump some gas.
We have a feeling his talents would be put to better use on the next season of "American Idol" pumping up contestants as a judge on the show that hasn't meant jack since he was on it.-DocFB
Diagnosis: U got 2 Pump It....
Adam Lambert strutted his stuff while leaving the Chateau Marmont last night. He also discussed about wanting to be a judge on "American Idol"..if they asked!
In a recent interview, Adam stated:
"Dude, if they called me, I'd be like, 'Yeah. Where do I sign?' It would be a really cool opportunity to help people coming into the show and to help them keep their vision focused because it does become overwhelming when you get in there and there's so many people telling you what they think you should do and your family, the producer, the judges, and all the other contestants that might be screwing with your head.
I think it might be nice as a judge to help people stay focused. It gets crazy and to help them reach their dreams -- it would be such a reward."
We won't be holding our breath for Adam to be a judge on the show....because it would make PERFECT sense! After last year, it is obvious they don't use sense to pick judges now do they?-DocFB
Diagnosis: Sometimes when you lose, you really win....
Mariah Carey has fired Randy Jackson as her manager as her and Randy will not be coming back to "American Idol" next season. Neither will Nicki Minaj or Keith Urban as well.
We are sure this season of American Idol did not help Randy retain his management services of Mariah, but she is blaming "hectic" schedules for the release of Randy.
Mariah already has new management, Red Light Management, who also manages Radiohead, Faith Hill, and Tim McGraw.-DocFB
Diagnosis: She will always be his baby....
Country music superstar Jason Aldeen was caught kissing with an American Idol contestant at The Den in Hollywood back in September last year. One problem; he was married!
Aldeen may not have to worry about that anymore as US Weekly is reporting that his wife Jessica Ussery has been separated from him since January.
The girl in question is former American Idol contestant Brittany Kerr who was touring with Aldeen when the making out session happened right at the front of The Den on Sunset back in September of last year.
Brittany stated very shortly after that she did not know that Aldeen was married.
When confronted with being with Kerr, Jason had this to say to the press: "It hasn't always been roses. We've been together for a long time and through a lot of things together. Those are things that most people get to deal with in private, but we didn't have the luxury of doing that."
Sigh. You didn't have the luxury because you cheated on your wife in PUBLIC, my man.
Jason's rep is asking for privacy:
"I can confirm that Jason and his wife are having problems, but there is nothing more to share at this time. It's a private family matter, and we hope everyone will respect that he would like to keep it that way."
Cheating sucks....but I have a feeling Kerr and Aldeen will have a LOT of new material for their next albums, respectively.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Country music in real life....
In case you didn't hear, Jennifer Hudson is joining the cast of the NBC show "Smash" where she joins former American Idol contestant Katharine McPhee on the show.
A preview of J. Hud performing an original song "I Can't Let Go" has just been released and the shows the pipes that she has big time.
The show returns for it's second season on Tuesday Feb. 5th, with Hudson debuting as a cast member.
The song is great and we cannot state how great she looks! Check out the performance above!-DocFB
Diagnosis: J. Hud reminds us of a old school Chaka Khan....
Mariah Carey took to Nightline with Barbara Walters to express her displeasure with Nicki Minaj's threats towards her. It appears that during promotion for Idol this week, things are still heated between the divas.
We are sure Mariah wishes that she would not have signed on to do "American Idol" til the other judges were named instead of signing the contract first. Sometimes, $18 million is not worth it when you are worth over a $100 million.
