While the ratings for American Idol continue to fall lower and lower, it's remained Fox's top show. Will they continue to drop or will they start to rebound this time around? Could the ratings fall low enough to see the series cancelled? Stay tuned.
Hosted by Ryan Seacrest, American Idol typically airs twice a week, on Wednesday and Thursday nights, for only part of the season. For the first time, the results will be wrapped into the performance episodes. Harry Connick Jr., Jennifer Lopez, and Keith Urban return to the judge's table.
Kesha appears to be continuing her streak of health and happiness into 2015. The “TiK ToK” singer, who spent time in rehab for an eating disorder in February 2014, displayed a fit, toned figure while on the beach with boyfriend Brad Ashenfelter in Brazil on Monday, Jan. 26.

During an interview with Ryan Seacrest this past June, [...] »

In a complaint lodged with the California Labor Commissioner on Jan. 22, the American Idol season 11 winner claims that the producers have "manipulated" him into accepting jobs and entering into other transactions that were actually for the benefit of 19 and its affiliates, and is seeking to void his management, recording and merchandising agreements with the producer.
In the court documents which Et has obtained, Phillips says he "remains grateful [to American Idol] for the opportunities provided to him to demonstrate to the world and capitalize upon his talent, creativity and diligence." However, "the appreciation does not extend to the oppressive, fatally conflicted 19 Entertainment, Inc."

Blake Shelton has been the breakout comedic star of The Voice since its premiere in April 2011, and yet it’s taken ’til January 2015 for him to land a hosting gig on Saturday Night Live? (Whoever’s in charge of cross-promotional synergy at NBC has clearly been in a professional freefall since the demise of Law & Order: La.)
Better late than never, though, I suppose. The country music star proved an absolutely terrific choice of emcee — scoring laughs in a wide range of scenarios and not relying on cue cards nearly as much as you’d expect for a neophyte. I »
Actress behind Fox soap’s Cookie grossly misunderstands the prize
The actress joined Jimmy Fallon and Ryan Seacrest for a competitive game of charades on Friday’s “Tonight Show,” where she pretty much single-handedly won the thing for her and teammate Tariq of house band The Roots. By TheWrap‘s count, however, there’s a bit of an asterisk next to that “win.”
Henson was playing for something bigger than pride: The actress thought the prize was $120,000 dollars, »

Gwyneth Paltrow and Johnny Depp's "Never Have I Ever" reveals on The Ellen DeGeneres Show have inspired a lot of people get their own versions of the game going.

Al and Matt 'fessed up to the fantasies, too, but Willie and Carson threw up the "I Have Never" signs. "I'm »
Music is in this guy's blood!One of Carlos Santana's nephews auditioned for "American Idol" on Thursday night -- and, while this guy blew the judges away with his talent, he definitely surprised them with his appearance.Adam Lasher walked in the room with a busted up hand from a skateboarding accident, a machine monitoring his blood sugar and all the facial expressions of Jimmy Fallon.While Jennifer Lopez couldn't help but compare him to the "Tonight Show" host, it sounds like Lasher kept his actual celebrity connection a secret from the judges, as Santana's name only came up during the singer's pre-interview with Ryan Seacrest."He's like a Jedi with a guitar," Lasher told Ryan of his legendary mentor.And the training definitely paid off -- check out his televised audition, with an original song, above. Lasher also posted another video of him singing Rihanna's "Stay »

We've reached that intriguing place in the "Idol" audition schedule that overlaps with Sundance, so there's a distinct chance that between now and next Thursday, a few of the audition episodes may not get recapped. Instead? You can expect a lot of reviews for documentaries you've never heard of! Woot! Follow along with my recap for Wednesday (January 21) night's auditions from Minneapolis... 8:00 p.m. Et. Minneapolis is today's "American Idol" destination. It's the first time "Idol" has been here in seven years, apparently. And the judges are trapped in an SUV. High drama to start the episode. Will they escape? And who will be forced to eat who first? I assume J-Lo and Harry eat Keith first. 8:02 p.m. Darn. They appear to have escaped without resorting to cannibalism. Our first contestant is 17-year-old Shannon Berthiaume, who has never sung in front of anybody before. She's got a strong Kristen Stewart vibe, »

True confession: I may be the only person in the United States who dramatically slid down a wall and let out a tortured “Nooooooo!!!!” after learning that American Idol will eventually cut back to one night a week midway through Season 14.
After three consecutive hump days of middling vocals, “heard it all before” backstories and not nearly enough scenes of Ryan Seacrest getting bear-hugged by jubilant families, however, I’m reconsidering my stance.
Perhaps, in a world where orange is the new black and Idris Elba could/should be the next 007, less is destined to be the new more »

Jennifer Lopez isn't on the prowl. The actress, 45, was falsely linked to her Boy Next Door co-star Ryan Guzman, 27, after appearing at the Golden Globes together. Lopez denied the romance rumors to Ryan Seacrest last week, and on Tuesday, she reassured Ellen DeGeneres that there's nothing going on with Guzman. "He's so fun. He's a real sweet. He's a gentleman," the movie star said. "We are doing all this promo together for the movie." "So, there's nothing going on?" DeGeneres asked. "No, no, no," Lopez vowed. "We arrived separately, but then later we went to the parties together." "We had some fun," the "Booty" singer »

Comedy Central is turning up the heat on pop icon Justin Bieber. The network announced today that Bieber will be this year's Roastee. The Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber (#BieberRoast) will tape in Los Angeles. Tape and airdate to be announced shortly. Said Kent Alterman, President, Content Development & Original Programming, Comedy Central:
"Justin has been asking us for a few years to roast him, and we just kept telling him to go create more source material first. We're thrilled he listened.
On Twitter, Justin Bieber added:
"For years I have wanted Comedy Central to roast me. They said only if I provided them w/ more material so for a year now I have worked hard. Finally after all that hard work for my 21st bday it's happening."
Prepare for the roast of...Justin Bieber. E! News has confirmed Comedy Central will put the Biebs in the hot seat for their next roast set to air this year. The special will be filmed in Los Angeles. "Justin has been asking us for a few years to roast him, and we just kept telling him to go create more source material first. We're thrilled he listened," Kent Alterman, president of content development & original programming at Comedy Central, said in a statement. Ryan Seacrest first reported the Roast news. "For years I have wanted Comedy Central to roast me. They said only if I provided them w/ more material so for a year now I have worked hard," Bieber wrote on Twitter. "Finally »
Early this morning, Ryan Seacrest announced that Comedy Central will host a roast for pop music's punching bag, Justin Bieber. And now Comedy Central confirms it, with the network's president Kent Alterman commenting, “Justin has been asking us for a few years to roast him, and we just kept telling him to go create more source material first. We’re thrilled he listened.” (Even the exec's got jokes!) This should be easy enough. Making fun of Bieber is practically an American pastime at this point (even though the Bieb himself is Canadian). Perhaps it was inspired by this weekend's Saturday Night Live parody of the singer's recent Calvin Klein ads, to which he responded, "well-played. Lol." on Twitter. See? Bieber can take a joke! You know, when it's positioned as a way to potentially help his career. Justin's all in. He's already repeated the roast's first joke: »
