Things are heating up in court for American Idol producers, who are being sued on grounds of racial discrimination, which took place back when Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul occupied the judges table.

There were plenty of exciting moments at the 65th annual Emmy Awards, but perhaps the most memorable took place when American Idol alum Carrie Underwood sang a tribute to the Beatles. Which song did Carrie choose and how did her fans react?
It looks like Kelly Clarkson’s dream of owning Jane Austen’s ring is about to draw to a close.

Paula Patton clearly is not the jealous type, so we assumed she’d be okay with Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke’s raunchy rendition of Blurred Lines at the MTV Video Music Awards.

Jennifer Lopez is quite capable of producing a killer track on her own, as she’s proven time and time again. That being said, the American Idol judge’s best work results from musical collaborations. And this is exactly why we’re thrilled to learn that JLo and Robin Thicke are hitting it off in the recording studio!
We’ve been speculating about the demise of Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth for ages now, but every time we’ve predicted their impending breakup, they’ve managed to hang on. Finally, finally, the jilted lovers have realized that their relationship is doomed, which is why the twerkaholic American Idol guest and her hunky fiance are calling it quits.
Miley Cyrus’ Wrecking Ball could be the provocative pop star’s first #1 single ever! The former American Idol mentor has come close before, but insiders are predicting that her latest single will hit the top of the charts, based largely on the smash success of the accompanying video.
