Adorable Yet Terrifying Little Girl Threatens Mom Who Is Laughing Through Her Frozen Performance

18 September 2014 9:47 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Today we found out that this sweet, cherub-faced little girl can get dark real quick. Especially when it comes to her cover of that one song from Frozen you might have heard a few times. A two-year-old kid from Belfast, Northern Ireland is trying to perform "Let It Go" for her parents, but her mom can't stop giggling. Whether she's laughing at her daughter because her vocals as "pitchy, dawg" (shout out to former American Idol judge Randy Jackson) or just laughing because her daughter is getting so angry over the interruption, we're not sure. What we do know is that the little girl is not happy that her mom isn't taking her musical moment seriously, and she starts warning her mom that there will »

Idol Judges on Season 14: J.Lo Wants Less Cruelty, Adam Lambert Seeks Artistry, Harry Flinches at 'Geek' Label

17 September 2014 4:04 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

A change (or two) is gonna come when Season 14 of American Idol returns next January — starting with the lineup of judges at the New York City auditions and possibly percolating down to the kind of contestants being sought and the amount of torture they’ll receive from the show’s producers.

Indeed, due to the sudden death of his father-in-law, panelist Keith Urban had to sit out Tuesday and Wednesday’s callbacks at the New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge. But Season 8 runner-up Adam Lambert stepped in alongside Jennifer Lopez and Harry Connick Jr., to hand out Golden Tickets »

Report Card: Musicians as judges on reality TV competitions

17 September 2014 2:39 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Mariah Carey, Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, Shakira, Demi Lovato, Jennifer Lopez, Nicki Minaj, Ben Folds, Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears, Usher, Keith Urban: they've all made hit records, but they've also all served as judges on music competition reality TV shows. "American Idol," "The X Factor," "The Sing-Off" and "The Voice" have (or had) the habit of taking on chart-topping artists for their panels. While Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson helped lead the earliest charge in American reality TV, these current lineups are employing artists who are still making music -- or at least trying -- in a big way today. But no judge is created equal. Some have excelled at being judges on their respective shows, while others have struggled. And the same goes for their music: taking on a reality television show is a gamble when trying to re-invigorate a musical career. So, pay attention, new "Voice" judges »
