The American Idol Revival Will Not “Exploit” Bad Auditions

When American Idol first started, people were enamored by the talent of the first winner Kelly Clarkson, but what really put the show on the map were the bad auditions and harsh criticisms. Original cast member Simon Cowell became a household name as a judge thanks to his comments about the “bad” performances.

Even though American Idol just had its series finale in 2016, there is a revival on the way which no one asked for. The show is on a different network and instead of judges that were on the previous seasons, Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan are up for the task. Ryan Seacrest is back to host and the format of the show seems relatively the same, but this time there will be no bad auditions.

Jennifer-Lopez-World-Of-Dance-NeYo-Derek-Hough-Jenna-Dewan

I am a sucker for all things Jennifer Lopez, so I’m interested to see how her new dance reality show ends up being. At the same time, there are a shit ton of dance-focused reality shows on television so I don’t know who’s asking for another one. Nevertheless, I trust JLo and I’ll give World of Dance a chance, especially since Jennifer revealed that Jenna Dewan Tatum, Derek Hough, and Ne-Yo will also be a part of the project.

I assume Jennifer will reveal more as the premiere date becomes closer, but the fact that she got some seriously respected dancers on board should be a good sign that this show will actually be worth watching. Or at least I hope so.

Mama Joyce talks crap about Phaedra

I’m still a little bit confused about how the friendship between Kandi Burruss and Phaedra Parks went south, but I’m just gonna blame Apollo Nida. That’s an easy thing to do – no one would ever go against someone hating on Apollo.

Unfortunately, now it’s just so awkward every time Kandi and Phaedra are on screen together. And I can’t imagine things are going well between them these days since Mama Joyce was talking all about Phaedra’s personal business on the last episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta.

Kim-Kardashian-Keeping-Up-With-The-Kardashians-kuwtk

Love him or hate him, it is pretty interesting that The Apprentice star Donald Trump went from being a reality TV star to a presidential candidate. It got me thinking about celebrities that I enjoy watching on reality TV who I would love to see run for president.

To make it clear, I don’t necessarily think any of these people should actually be president, just that it definitely would have been entertaining if we had them in the mix at some point during the nomination and election processes. Also, this list is meant to be a complete joke, so chill out with the political commentary and just have fun with the “what if” political possibilities.

FOX's

American Idol has come to an end… for now… and I, for one, am sad. Last night, Trent Harmon was named the Season 15 winner, and the “bookend” to Kelly Clarkson. Today, both Trent and La’Porsha Renae signed major record deals, however. Both well deserved.

As an American Idol super fan (and I’m not ashamed to admit it), I loved every minute of the finale, though I did feel a little bad for this season’s finalists, who were reduced to singing backup and rolling a gift for Ryan Seacrest onto the stage. Instead of the usual finalist & artist pairings, we were treated to non-stop performances by past American Idol contestants, including Chris Daughtry, Jordin Sparks, Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Hudson, and more. Sadly, a very pregnant Kelly wasn’t able to attend, but she did pre-tape a medley of her greatest hits, ending with an acappella “A Moment Like This.”

Notably missing (to me anyway) were Adam Lambert, Haley Reinhart, Casey Abrams, Crystal Bowersox, and a mention of late Michael Johns. But, still, it was a great two hours of television. That I may or may not have watched twice already. 😉 Look below for pictures from the American Idol series finale.

Kanye West auditions for American Idol

Guess we shouldn’t be too surprised, right? Kanye West never ceases to amaze us with some of his antics, but just how far does he have to take it? Well, let me fill you in. Recently, Mr. Kim Kardashian decided that if he can’t run for president, he may as well give American Idol a shot, because he wants to be known as the last American Idol. Oh, brother.

Nope, we are not kidding, folks. West recently auditioned for the show with his wife Kim Kardashian by his side, but was it all just a sick joke? Oh, and in case you were missing your dose of Kanye tantrums, we’ve got the scoop on his latest social media tirade as well. You don’t want to miss this stuff!

Mariah Carey performs during a live taping of the 'Live! with Kelly and Michael'

Mariah Carey is keeping it real in a recent interview with Australian KIIS FM hosts Kyle and Jackie O on Thursday. Real nasty, that is! When asked about her time as a judge on American Idol, Mariah bluntly described the show as “so boring and so fake.”As a judge on season 12 of the show along with Randy Jackson, Keith Urban and (on-screen nemesis!) Nicki Minaj, Mariah says she “felt forced to make up stuff about the contestants and their performance to keep the show going,” according to Page Six. 

Adding a halfhearted apology before another insult, Mariah added, “I’m sorry, I just think it’s … when I say it’s fake … I mean like you have to make up things to say about people.” Claiming that, at times, the judges don’t have a whole lot to say about the performers, she explains, “Half the time the performances are good, you just be like ‘it was good’ and you feel like ending it there: ‘You were really good.’”
