Carrie Underwood just can't get enough of motherhood! The American Idol winner and proud mama stepped onto the 2015 American Music Awards red carpet Sunday night for a special night away from home.

‘American Idol’ Brings Back All Judges For Final Season

21 November 2015 8:24 AM, PST | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

American Idol has made a lot of people stars over the years, whether for their impressive skills (Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood) or their lack of it (“She-bangs,” anyone?) But another important part of the reality show has been the judges: Paula Abdul’s over-the-top support, Randy Jackson’s technical advice, and of course Simon Cowell’s cutting sarcasm. And […]

Jennifer Lopez Sounds Off on Kanye West's "Really Funny" American Idol Audition

20 November 2015 12:28 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Remember when Kanye West auditioned for American Idol? You weren't dreaming. It actually happened, and his appearance with pregnant wife Kim Kardashian is going to air in January when the Fox singing competition returns for its 15th and final season. E! News' Will Marfuggi caught up with the judges while filming the last-ever Hollywood Week round (pour one out for the poor souls who were up until 5 a.m. teaching themselves choreography to Adele songs, we salute you), where he got Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr. to spill on the unbelievable moment. (No, really, they didn't actually believe it was happening.) Allow host extraordinaire Ryan Seacrest to explain: "We were in San »

American Idol‘s farewell season just got a little more pitchy, dawg.

Randy Jackson, Paula Abdul and Simon Cowell — who made up the Fox competition series’ judging panel for eight years — will be back for its 15th and final go-round.

Scandal Recap: Olitz Reach a Breaking Point

20 November 2015 1:27 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

#Gladiators, if Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban, and Harry Connick Jr. are wondering why I showed up the American Idol auditions singing this song:… it is because Shonda Lynn Rhimes and the entire Shondaland crew ruined my  damn life with the incredible Scandal and How to Get Away With Murder winter finales. All I had left in my life were two words — bish and what — and the nominal piano skills I learned from playing "Hot Cross Buns" back in grade school. I am honestly shocked at what I just witnessed on Scandie, especially because I hated last week's episode. With the winter finale, the show has returned to form. There were epic fights, a fierce #YesAllWomen message, a shocking revelation, and me sobbing hard like Lupita Nyong'o in 12 Years a Slave when she just wanted a bar of Lever 2000 to wash the funk off her butt.

American Idol is truly going back to its roots for its final season.  Ryan Seacrest just assured E! News' Will Marfuggi that all of the show's former judges, including Paula Abdul, Randy Jackson, and the formidable tight T-shirted Simon Cowell, will return at some point as the singing competition series takes its final bow.  "We will have the former judges back," Seacrest revealed when Marfuggi caught up with him during Idol's famous Hollywood Week. "The plan is to have all of them back. They've all considered it and I think are enthusiastic about coming back and saluting the show."  Aside from Paula, Randy, and Simon, »

Ryan Seacrest Says Every American Idol Judge Will Return, Yep Even Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey

19 November 2015 3:38 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Remember Paula Abdul's nonsensical ramblings and platitudes? Randy Jackson's penchant for the word "dawg"? Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey's beef leading to Barbara Walters quoting the lyrics, "I'm quick to check a bitch if she is outta line?" You can have all that and more when the final season of American Idol bows on January 6, 2016. Access Hollywood reports that Ryan Seacrest promises every former judge will appear in the final season. Of course, he doesn't say in which capacity, for how long, or if they'll all even be in the same room with one another, but awesome!We (and the show's ratings) will be praying for another one of these moments: »

Kelly Clarkson Talks About Pregnancy Complications: "I Have to Get IVs and Fluids Because I Get So Dehydrated"

18 November 2015 6:15 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Kelly Clarkson isn't familiar with morning sickness. "I'm familiar with all-day sickness," the "Invincible" singer said with a laugh in a pre-taped interview that aired on CBS This Morning Wednesday. The Grammy winner, who is expecting her second child with her husband, Brandon Blackstock, continued, "I have to get IVs and fluids because I get so dehydrated. It's really bad." Kelly had a similar experience during her first pregnancy. "I vomit a good dozen times a day. It's, like, bad. I vomited before coming out here," the American Idol winner said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in December 2013. "I'm not even kidding. It's so bad. It's »

Scream Queens Recap: Boonestruck

Tuesday’s Scream Queens gave new meaning to the phrase “Once you go black, you never go back.”

No, really, Boone — who was able to walk the streets because strangers just assumed he’s Joaquin Phoenix — assigned a new meaning to it, telling Chad — who, for reasons beyond my comprehension, believed Boone was a ghost — that the only way he could return to the land of the living was by sleeping with Zayday.

Wheat, meet chaff — but don’t worry about learning their names.

Simon Cowell Watching a Movie With His Mini-Me Son Eric Is the Cutest Thing You'll See All Day

16 November 2015 5:56 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Turns out Simon Cowell isn't all huffs and puffs. Unless, perhaps, he's reading "The Three Little Pigs" to his little boy. The British music mogul is showing off a more sensitive side in a picture posted to Twitter of him enjoying some quality time with his 1 1/2-year-old son, Eric. The former American Idol judge and returning America's Got Talent judge is infamous for his brutal honestly when it comes to critiquing music, but having a child has definitely brought out his more patient and mellow side (and we hope he brings none of it to Agt). Cowell recently opened up about being none too proud of how he and Eric's mom, Lauren Silverman, got together, but described how incredibly »

Let the Games Begin: Theme and Allegory in ‘The Hunger Games’ Saga

15 November 2015 9:50 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »


With the recent cinematic release of the latest installment of The Hunger Games series, Mockingjay- Part 1, it seems to be the perfect time to look into some of the more predominant themes and allegorical references in this wildly popular franchise. Being that these films have been adapted from Suzanne Collin’s trilogy of bestselling novels geared toward the younger adult crowd, they have come to be some of the most anticipated blockbusters of the last few years, bringing in massive box-office success. Despite the well-defined financial achievement and reverberant hype of the saga, the series of films, soon to conclude with next year’s Mockingjay- Part 2, has not done particularly well with critics. Some reviews suggest that the Battle Royale storyline turned moody propaganda display is becoming rather thin, gratuitous as well as underdeveloped. Yet what does seem to keep audiences returning to the theatres, year after year? It most »

The Voice Live Playoffs Recap: Has Elvis Entered the Building?

Yep, yep, yep, it’s called The Voice, and the voice should be the focus of our attention.

And yet, with 24 singers competing for only 12 slots in the Season 9 finals, shouldn’t a little salty hip action count for a few bonus points in a very close horse race (provided that said moving and grooving doesn’t throw a contestant off pitch)?
