Farewell for Now, American Idol, and Thanks for All the Memories

7 April 2016 1:41 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Season 10 of American Idol. Top 4 results night. May 12, 2011.

I remember it vividly, joyfully — but not just because the exceptional Haley Reinhart (who’d been enduring egregious sabotage from judges Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson) improbably survived over rocker dude James Durbin. Mostly, the date is blazed into my memory because of a surprise delivery I’d received a few hours earlier from the New Jersey State Division of Youth and Family Services: Three-month-old foster twins, ridiculously cute boys whom my husband and I had only learned about earlier that morning.

Chasing Destiny Premiere Recap: Did Kelly Rowland's Girl-Group Search Have You Jumpin' Jumpin'?

6 April 2016 12:14 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

“I don’t want reality stars,” declared Kelly Rowland at the start of Bet’s new girl-group competition series Chasing Destiny. “I want stars.”

And just like that, the former Destiny’s Child phenom-turned-r&B solo star had my attention. But would the rest of the show live up to Kelly’s “talent-first, drama-last” mantra?

Based on its deeply engrossing, frequently sweet and exceedingly honest opening hour, I’d say the answer appears to be “Yes!”

Rowland, of course, was terrific in her sole season as »

Kelly Rowland Hopes to Find the Next Destiny's Child and Backs Up Beyoncé: 'She Was Speaking Her Mind'

5 April 2016 3:45 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Kelly Rowland is hoping to find the next superstar girl group with her new docuseries Chasing Destiny, but she wasn't always convinced a reality show would be in her future. "After Destiny's Child wrapped the last tour [in 2006], I remember saying, 'I want to do a girl group of my own' ... And I didn't want a reality show; I didn't want a 'making the band,'" she tells W magazine in a new interview. "I didn't want those things that other networks thought that it would be." But after getting "good feedback" from Michelle Williams and Beyoncé, the star is feeling positive about her new venture. »

Beyoncé Wants Kelly Rowland's New Girl Group to "Be Better" Than Destiny's Child

5 April 2016 2:47 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Kelly Rowland's new show Chasing Destiny follows her quest to find the next great girl group. Of course, she'll draw on her own experience as a member of Destiny's Child, and she'll also consult with Beyoncé and Michelle Williams throughout the process. "It's good feedback," Kelly told W Magazine, "and I'm happy they're really honest with me, because they feel the same way I do: each generation should be better than the last." But while Michelle and Beyoncé are completely supportive, Chasing Destiny will mainly be a solo project for Kelly. "I wanted to do everything myself," she said in an interview with The Breakfast Club on Power 105.1. "I wanted to »

TCA Winter Press Tour 2016: Reboots, Reunions and Steven Avery

21 January 2016 12:57 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Now that a few days have passed since journalists and critics have decamped from Pasadena, Calif. for the annual two-week grind of Television Critics Association winter press tour, Variety‘s TV team has taken stock of the most noteworthy trends.

Sean Penn’s El Chapo interview grabbed headlines, as did his sitdown with Charlie Rose — along with any mention of Donald Trump, “Making A Murderer,” and unintended cast reunions. (No, the “Friends” cast is not getting back together.) But nothing occupied TCA as much as a report on Netflix’s ratings in a presentation by NBC research president Alan Wurtzel — which Netflix chief Ted Sarandos handily dismissed in his exec session as “remarkably inaccurate.”

And then, of course, there was all the usual chatter about “Peak TV,” which has now hit a high of 412 scripted series.

For those who didn’t make it to the Langham Hotel, here’s what »

Kelly Rowland's show seeks next big pop stars – but it's not like American Idol

6 January 2016 12:50 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The Destiny’s Child star and choreographer Frank Gatson were already trying to form a new girl group when producers asked them to document their quest

Kelly Rowland knows what it takes to make a girl group successful: along with TLC and Spice Girls, her former band Destiny’s Child remains one of the best-selling female-fronted acts of all time. The founding member is therefore a good fit for Bet’s new reality show, Chasing Destiny, which features Rowland searching for “the next big female superstar group”.

The programme, which premieres on the cable network on 5 April, marks Rowland’s return to TV following her judging stints on the Us and UK versions of The X Factor.
