Final Thursday »
Judging from the reaction online following the "American Idol" Season 12 finale, plenty of viewers believe that Mariah Carey lip-synced the medley of her hits aired during the final results show. But according to a rep for the singer and "Idol" judge, this is not true.
Carey's spokesperson made a statement to E!Online, saying "She Absolutely Did Not lip-sync. She performed Live in front of several thousands of people!!!! (and did it 3 times!!)"
The rep did confirm that Carey sang to a pre-recorded track but that the singing -- along with the 40-person choir providing backup vocals -- was done live. Singing to a recorded track is not all that uncommon in the music industry, even though many do object to it.
Still, video of the performance does indicate that something was off. It is very possible that the sound relay in the Fox broadcast had a bit of a glitch, »
Mariah Carey, she could not be moved. When former judge Jennifer Lopez delivered an energetic 10-minute performance on the season finale of American Idol on May 16, Carey kept a fixed smile on her face but did not immedately join the other three judges in giving Lopez a standing ovation. She played with the streamers and grinned straight ahead instead.

The Season 12 judge actually recorded her performance three times and the vocals were live each time, Mimi's rep told Access Hollywood on Friday.
Her performance was taped on Wednesday, in front of an audience at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live. Pre-taping musical perfomances is something that is done on many shows, including "The Voice" and "Dancing with the Stars."
It was unclear if the performance that was broadcast on ...

What had ETonline readers buzzing this week?
1. Angelina Jolie Reveals She Had a Double Mastectomy
In an op-ed piece for the The New York Times, Oscar winning actress and mother-of-six Angelina Jolie reveals that she recently underwent a preventive double mastectomy.
In the article, the 37-year-old actress goes into great detail about how her mother, Marcheline Bertrand, fought breast cancer for almost a decade before dying from the disease at 56 years old.
After being told by doctors that she carried a "faulty gene" that increases the chances of breast and ovarian cancer -- with an estimated 87 percent risk of breast cancer and 50 percent risk of the latter -- Jolie decided to be proactive and have a double mastectomy.
Here are some excerpts from the article:
"Once I knew that this was my reality, I decided to be proactive and to minimize the risk as much I could. I made a decision to have a preventive double mastectomy »

Insiders believe 'American Idol' will struggle to attract A-List judges next season. While Randy Jackson has quit and producers are reportedly hoping to replace his fellow judges Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban to boost falling ratings next year, insiders believe they won't find it easy to attract top talent. A source told Naughty But Nice Rob: 'No big star wants to be associated with a dying show. Who wants to be the one that killed 'Idol' while they were the judge? 'If less people watch, you make less money and can pay your talent less. It is as simple as that. 'Gone are the days of $18 million contracts like Mariah got. Now the judges will be lucky »
As "American Idol's" ratings have dipped to record lows this season, it's clear that the singing competition needs to shake it up and the best place to start is with the judges.

Candice Glover has been crowned the champion of "American Idol" Season 12, and millions of people have opinions on that. One opinion in particular -- that of "Idol" judge Nicki Minaj -- is definitely in favor of Candice's win. Minaj spoke to reporters right after the finale show, explaining why she didn't perform on the show and why Candice was her pick.
Why didn't you perform tonight?
Nicki Minaj: Well, I had already committed to the Billboard Awards to perform my single, and so I wasn't allowed to perform on "Idol" and perform on Billboard. And also I was supposed to premiere my "High School" video on "Idol," but they said it was too risque.
Do you think Candice was the right singer to win?
Nicki Minaj: Absolutely. Absolutely. I predicted that she would win, so someone owes me money. But I think that Candice is like the real »

It's finally here! Will.i.am has released the highly anticipated music video for his hit single "Bang Bang," and E! News has the first look! The song is featured on both The Great Gatsby soundtrack and the singer's latest album, #willpower, which was released in April to great reviews. Both the song and the video are throwbacks to the Roaring Twenties (a perfect fit for Gatsby), with retro dance moves like the Charleston and a medley of horns blasting the upbeat tempo. Will.i.am performed the new single on American Idol earlier this month, which prompted the beats to immediately shoot up the pop charts. Check out the video above! For more on Will.I.Am, tune in to »

The night was filled with stars like Psy, ex idol Adam Lambert, Jesse J, the unparalleled Aretha Franklin and current judges Keith Urban and Mariah Carey. Yet, without a doubt, JLo’s performance was one of the most memorable of the night.
