David Hasselhoff Performs Medley of 80's Hits On "American Idol"

26 March 2015 12:15 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

If anyone loves the 80's ... it's The Hoff!  David Hasselhoff stopped by "American Idol" on Wednesday night and gave the audience a special treat when he took the stage to perform during the show's 80's night.  Ryan Seacrest introduced the "Baywatch" alum and asked the actor what he remembered most from the decade.   "I don't remember much about the 80's, but you know I had a great time," he laughed. The Hoff then swapped his suit jacket and tie for a pair of shades and a leather jacket, before launching into his set.     The 62-year-old crooner began belting out a classic, Queen's "Crazy Little Thing Called Love". But it was Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up" that sent the audience in a frenzy, bringing judges Harry Connick Jr, Keith Urban and Jennifer Lopez to their feet! After the performance, The Hoff said his goal was just to »

'American Idol' recap: Did You predict eliminations of Adanna Duru, Maddie Walker?

25 March 2015 11:05 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Did you predict the shocking eliminations of two of "American Idol's" leading ladies Wednesday night? If you predicted that Adanna Duru and Maddie Walker would receive the lowest number of votes, why are you not taking part in our "American Idol" prediction contest? Hurry -- make your own predictions now and you could win our weekly prize of a $100 Amazon gift certificate. It's fun and easy! -Break- During Wednesday's live show, host Ryan Seacrest announced that the following contestants would sing again for America's votes, thus making it through to Top 9 week: Daniel Seavey, Quentin Alexander, Joey Cook, Tyanna Jones, Jax, Nick Fradiani, Clark Beckham, Qaasim Middleton and Rayvon Owen. That left poor Adanna and Maddie as this week's double-elimination victims. Daniel was Gold Derby's official prediction to go home with 9/4 odds, while Adanna was our second-place choice with 7/2 odds and Maddie was our third-place choice »

Recap: 'American Idol' Season 14 - Top 9 '80s Night and Double-Elimination

25 March 2015 4:58 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

We're only two weeks into this season's "American Idol" Finals and The Save is gone.  The "Idol" judges opted to Save Qaasim Middleton last week. Were they protecting the entertainment factor that Qaasim brings to the show? Were they rewarding Qaasim for bringing energy to an episode that had lacked energy? Were they recognizing that America's voting has, thus far, been wonky as heck this season? Either way, Wednesday's (March 25) episode of "American Idol" is going to be a double-elimination episode, meaning that there are 11 remaining contestants, but presumably only nine are going to sing. This will change the entire architecture of the episode. Plus, Fox is boasting an appearance by Salt and/or Peppa, following last week's big Kenny Loggins appearance. Whee! 8:01 p.m. I think Nick Fradiani should have been the '80s Night mentor, since I'm pretty sure he's the only contestant this season who existed way back then. »

Julianne Hough Calls Blackface Costume "Dumb," Says It's "Hard" to Escape Ex-Boyfriend Ryan Seacrest

21 March 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Julianne Hough is finally setting the record straight about her infamous blackface Halloween costume that stirred up so much controversy. The "Dancing With the Stars" pro stepped out in 2013 as Crazy Eyes from "Orange Is the New Black," sporting an orange jumpsuit, Uzo Aduba's signature hair knots and ... dark makeup.  The 26-year-old star clearly wasn't thinking about the racial implications of her makeup choice. "Ignorance is sometimes not bliss; I really had no idea what I was doing, and it was all out of fun and respect for the character," the actress tells Allure in a cover story for the mag's April issue. "I don't even know how to talk about it because it's such a sensitive topic," she added. "It makes me so sad to think that I was that dumb. I learned a big lesson." During the interview, Julianne also opened up about ex-boyfriend Ryan Seacrest. The »

You Have to See Jennifer Lopez's Looks from Last Night's American Idol—Prepare to Be Amazed!

20 March 2015 11:34 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Sorry, American Idol hopefuls—there's no way you're outshining Jennifer Lopez's performance. The American Idol judge gave the music-hopefuls a break from the stage as she stepped up to  perform her latest single, "Feel the Light," on last's nights show. No booty popping, no shaking what her momma gave her—just a statuesque rendition of her ballad from the animated movie, Home.  As she belted out her hauntingly beautiful new tune, the stage lights projected an angelic scene onto her Mariel Haenn white ball gown, illuminating the songstress as the canvas for a heavenly light show. "Wow—Can we even continue the show after that?" a stunned Ryan Seacrest »

Julianne Hough Calls Blackface Costume "Dumb" — Plus, She Can't Escape Ryan Seacrest

20 March 2015 8:51 AM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

It’s likely no easy task having one of Hollywood’s biggest multi-hyphenates as an ex-boyfriend. Julianne Hough, who dated Ryan Seacrest for over two years before splitting in March 2013, told Allure magazine that it’s impossible to avoid running into her ex. "It's hard not to — he's everywhere," the April 2015 cover girl told Allure of Seacrest. Although she has moved on (Hough is now dating hockey player Brooks Laich), the Dancing With the Stars judge said it took some time.  "A little while after [I cut my [...] »

'American Idol' recap shocker: Did the judges save Qaasim Middleton?

19 March 2015 10:25 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

"American Idol" threw us a massive curveball Thursday night by naming Qaasim Middleton as the singer with the lowest number of votes. I thought for sure it'd be either Adanna Duru or Daniel Seavey going home, as that's who Gold Derby's savvy readers were predicting, but we were all in for a surprise as the judges used their sole Judges' Save of the season. -Break- 'American Idol' leaderboard: Which users are winning our contest? Did you predict that Qaasim would reap the lowest number of votes and that the judges would use their save? If so, you should be taking part in our "American Idol" prediction contest.

American Idol Top 10 Recap: Highway to the Danger Zone

“Yo, Shonda Rhimes, I love ABC’s #Tgit programming block. And I’ma let you finish. But American Idol just had one of the craziest Thursdays of all time!”

Ok, I’m sorry. You probably didn’t come here expecting a Kanye West reference — @KimKierkegaardashian’s genius Twitter feed is more my style — in an Idol recap. But my brain just went from the frying pan into the active volcano after Season 14’s Top 10 performance telecast (a confusing label, given that there were 11 singers on stage all night, with one awaiting the bad news that he or she was the »

Recap: 'American Idol' Season 14 - Top 10 Movie Night and Results

19 March 2015 4:57 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Sorry, but I'm still annoyed that we sent Sarina-Joi Crowe packing. It's not that she didn't, at least on some level, deserve to go. She gave a bad performance at the beginning of a long episode, which is an easy path to being forgotten and being eliminated. Still, "American Idol" lost a singer with almost limitless upside and we kept at least four or five people who almost certainly will never have anywhere near Sarina-Joi's potential. Oh well. After dedicating Wednesday night to two ridiculously high-rated hours of "Empire," Fox is turning Thursday over for a sure-to-be-lower-rated two hours of "American Idol" with a Movie Night theme. This is always one of the show's fuzziest and least justifiable themes and tonight we're using the theme as a hook so that Jennifer Lopez can perform the song she has in an upcoming movie.

Kim Kardashian Gets Real With Bruce Jenner in Their Emotional Chat

16 March 2015 7:30 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

The Kardashian-Jenners aren't strangers to drama on their E! reality show Keeping Up With the Kardashians, and the family is turning it up a notch in their 10th season. A clip of the premiere episode, which aired on Sunday, shows Kim Kardashian confronting stepdad Bruce Jenner. Their exchange was captured after Bruce reportedly went on a date with Ronda Kamihira, ex-wife Kris Jenner's best friend. Although Kris was dismissive of the news during an interview with Ryan Seacrest in October, Kim tells Bruce that her mom actually "cries about it at night." Kim and her sisters have been publicly supportive during Bruce's reported transition into a woman. Still, in another preview of the episode, the former Olympian tells Kourtney Kardashian why he's been "pretty lonely" following his divorce. The famous family also manages to have a good laugh in the episode. A third clip shows Kim and sister »

Recap: 'American Idol' Season 14 - Top 12 Performances and an Elimination

12 March 2015 8:16 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Sorry about the delay, kids. I had to be doing PaleyFest 2015 red carpet coverage for Starz's "Outlander," so I was talking about wedding nights and spankings and I missed doing my normal Eastern Time "American Idol" live-blog.  And, in fact, I got home nearly 20 minutes into the Pacific Time airing of "Idol." So let's play a game and see how quickly I'm able to catch up with the live broadcast... Follow through for my full recap of Thursday's (March 12) Top 12 performances and the first solo elimination of the season. 8:00 p.m. (in show time, but 8:24 in my time) Fortunately, I remember last night, so I can trim a minute off here. 8:01 p.m. I missed last night's Top 12 Party because of timing. I'm just missing everything. 8:02 p.m. I can't fast-forward through Ryan Seacrest, because he's going to explain the show. Also, I can't miss the Jennifer Lopez Fashion Show. »

Andy Samberg will host the 2015 Emmy Awards

12 March 2015 2:38 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Fox, the only network without a late-night presence to pimp in the telecast, has tapped one of its primetime regulars to host the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday, September 20, 2015. The network announced on Thursday (March 12) that "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" star Andy Samberg will host the 2015 Emmy Awards. While the other networks have often used the Emmys telecast to position late-night favorites like Seth Meyers, Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon and Conan O'Brien for primetime audiences, Fox has given the gig to Jane Lynch and Ryan Seacrest in recent years. Samberg seems excited, at least insofar as one can convey excitement in a press release. "Buckle your seat belts, Emmy viewers!," Samberg blurbs. "Like, in general you should buckle your seat belts in your car. In fact, even if you’re not an Emmy viewer, you should buckle your seat belt. It can be dangerous on the road.

Nicki Minaj Put Ihop on Blast for Posting a Super Lame Joke on Twitter

12 March 2015 10:21 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Nicki Minaj is not going to take your tired puns lying down, Twitter. For anyone familiar with the rapper, it's common knowledge that she's more than outspoken. Whether she's slamming a blogger for a story about her ex or telling Ryan Seacrest how much she loves Katy Perry's breasts, you can always count on Nicki to tell it like it is.  Which is exactly why it's no surprise at all that she called out Ihop for a lame tweet they made recently.  What happened was this: Yesterday the restaurant posted "I ain't got no type. Pancakes are the only thing that I like." As a refresher, that's a play off the lyrics for Rae Sremmurd's rap anthem "No Type" »
