"Throughout the entire season, Leeza was always the classiest and most composed," explains Gold Derby's latest contest champ Denton Davidson, who scored the best while predicting "Celebrity Apprentice" Season 7.

Pay no attention to the girl collapsing dramatically at center stage. She is as relevant to bigger picture of American Idol‘s 14th season as Kris Jenner is to the Mideast peace process. (And 10 points to Gryffindor if you asked, “What is a Kris Jenner?“)
Instead, gather up those precious snippets of future Chris Daughtrys and Haley Reinharts singing. Because, bound together in a tightly edited Group Rounds episode, we saw 10, perhaps even 15 vocalists who reminded us not only of the past glories of The House That Made J.Hud an Oscahhh Winner, but also of its future potential.
The wait is finally over.
After tweeting out the eyebrow-raising poster for Magic Mike Xxl on Tuesday, Channing Tatum debuted the film's first trailer during his appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday, and it definitely doesn't disappoint.
Set to Ginuwine's "Pony" -- which Channing's character Mike memorably stripped to in 2012's Magic Mike -- the trailer features the 34-year-old actor showing off some serious dance moves, acrobatics and of course, a whole lot of abs. Also not to be missed? Shirtless newcomer Stephen 'Twitch' Boss, as well as Matt Bomer and Joe Manganiello putting in some choreography work.

(As previously reported, Abdul and singer Jason Derulo are joining Lythgoe on the Fox show's judging panel for season 12.)

Paula Abdul makes her big comeback behind a judges' table!
The former American Idol judge will join veteran panelist Nigel Lythgoe on the judging panel for season 12 of So You Think You Can Dance and Et stopped by the New York City auditions to see her in action.
"In many ways, I feel like I never really left," Abdul said of the new gig. "I say I'm like a cousin to this show because I've been able to step in and guest judge."

A while back, when kicking around possible Ichabod scenarios with series writer Heather Regnier, the actor found himself chuckling at the idea of his character singing karaoke.
Then it showed up the script for Monday’s episode (Fox, 8/7c).
“Heather Regnier and I had long discussions about it, and there are lots of different routes we could have gone down,” Mison tells TVLine. “Would it have been funny if he had sung a Lady Gaga song? What sort of thing would be best? And also, what sort of voice would Ichabod have? »

“I don’t see the worst in everyone. I see the everyone in everyone.”
For Detective Lt. Everett Backstrom, that’s all the justification he needs to act the way he does — that is, crass, blunt and totally rude.
In Fox’s new cop drama — created by Bones‘ Hart Hanson and based on a set of novels by Swedish criminologist Leif G.W. Persson — The Office‘s Rainn Wilson stars as the titular detective, who is admittedly excellent at his job.
He’s just not so great at the “people skills” thing.
A glittering purple unicorn landed smack in the middle of American Idol‘s Season 14 New Orleans audition stop — which in no way suggests that the show’s producers surprised us with a special return appearance by Nicki Minaj at the judges’ table. (People genuinely like Keith Urban, after all — they don’t want to see him break out into a Ptsd-induced panic attack.)
Rather, I’m talking about the Idoloonie Nation getting the all-too-rare opportunity to see a 2-to-1 vote against sending a contestant to Hollywood.
Don’t cry for 28-year-old Sarah Quintana, though. Sure, Keith was the only one »

The upcoming season of So You Think You Can Dance just might be the biggest one yet, with new additions to the judges' table and a new twist in the competition.Joining executive producer Nigel Lythgoe at the table will be Jason Derulo and Paula Abdul. While there's no question that Derulo has a strong pedigree in music and dance himself, the series' addition of Abdul is a real coup. Having been discovered by The Jacksons in the 1980s, Abdul went on to choreograph a number of award-winning music videos for Janet Jackson and others before launching her own successful »
