American Idol

It's hard to believe that American Idol has been on the air for over 10 years. Around season eight, the American Idol judges started to change, which, in my opinion, changed the focus of the show. Sadly. It became more about the judges and less about the contestants. 

Clay Aiken, the season two runner-up, recently shared his thoughts on the American Idol judges. When asked if he will return to the show to celebrate the 10th anniversary of his appearance on the show that gave him his big break, Clay said, "I don't know that I would commemorate it on the show. I don't know that they did it with Justin Guarini and all those folks." 

Clay added, "But Idol back in those days was about the contestants. Kelly [Clarkson] and Justin and Tamyra [Gray] and Nikki McKibbin, they were all the stars of the show. And when I was on, Ruben [Studdard] and myself and Kimberley Locke were the stars of the show." 

Definitely not shy about his opinion, Clay concluded, "Now Idol is about the judges. I don't even know if they remember there are contestants anymore."'

Lo and behold, it's already Hollywood Week (my favorite!) in American Idol time!

Considering the exhaustingly long search for judges and the drama that ensued once they were finally chosen, I'm shocked we didn't hear more about the American Idol auditions. I'm not complaining – just saying! Now that Ryan Seacrest and the American Idol judges aren't on the road, they're dishing about the mood at the judges' table thus far.

Despite the big egos personalities, Ryan manages to describe the American Idol judges with one word: Randy Jackson – huggable, Mariah Carey – soothing, Nicki MInaj - pizzazz, and Keith Urban – whiskery. What does "whiskery" mean? Eh, who cares, Keith is delicious.

According to Randy, we can look forward to lot of "funny" this season. He says, "Nicki is mad funny, and Mariah is mad funny, and Keith is very quick-witted and funny." Randy adds that he wants to be Simon Cowell when he grows up, "We're all kind of silly, but I guess maybe I'm the harsh one. I'm the quickest to say no."

As if Khloe Kardashian having to share the stage with sister Kim's ex-husband Damon Thomas wasn't enough (I'm still crossing my fingers they'll end up biffles–how hilarious would that be?), now we have a list of the X Factor's contestants' house rules.  Admittedly, while I love a singing competition, much of my viewing of them comes from YouTube clips.  You all have to remember Susan Boyle's Britain's Got Talent audition, right?  I get teary just thinking about it.  Simon Cowell, the hardazz, chewing on his pen while falling in love?  Priceless!

That said, I've been lukewarm on the X Factor thus far this season.  I was actually glad that Britney Spears didn't turn into the train wreck that seemed to be expected of her, and after getting Demi Lovato's newest song stuck in my head 24/7 and knowing her struggles, I like her as well.  Who is there for me to snark on if I like everyone involved?  Thankfully, knowing what the contestants are and aren't allowed to do, I have a new outlet, and it's awesome.  Let's face it, the rules I'm about to share with you are less about compliance and more about human decency and common sense.  Thankfully, peeps who are trying to make their name on reality television have neither!

Another day… American Idol begs for another ratings dollar.

Earlier this week, Nicki Minaj was "miraculously" caught on tape screaming at Mariah Carey during an American Idol audition, and the tape "somehow" ended up in TMZ's possession. Shocker.

On the video, Nicki screamed, “I told them, I’m not f***ing putting up with her f***ing highness over there.” Apparently, Nicki is tired of Mariah's self-involved attitude. TMZ's sources have said, "She [Mariah] keeps bringing up how many records she's sold, name dropping people she's worked with, how many tours she's done, and how many Grammys or awards she's won. Nicki is tired of it."

Also, Nicki has maintained… Mariah isn't innocent. Insiders have backed up Nicki's claim. Reportedly, Nicki walked away from the audition just before the outburst because Mariah was constantly talking down to her. As soon as Nicki returned, Mariah allegedly called her a bitch… cue the "secret" video camera… Nicki lost her temper.

"It was intense," Ryan Seacrest said. Early reports even claimed Nicki made a death threat against Mariah. Putting that rumor to rest, Nigel Lythgoe insisted, "The statement [that Nicki made a death threat] is absolute rubbish.  It's absolutely not true in any way, shape, or form."

Last week, a very married Jason Aldean was photographed kissing on a very not his wife Brittany Kerr at The Den in West Hollywood. 
 
Brittany is a cheerleader for the NBA's Charlotte Bobcats. Also an aspiring singer, Brittany tried out for American Idol in season 11. She was cut before the semi-finals.
 
After the photos surfaced on TMZ this weekend, the country music star issued a public apology for his cheating ways, calling it a drunken mistake. "The truth is that I screwed up," Jason said. "I had too much to drink, let the party get out of hand, and acted inappropriately at a bar. I left alone, caught the bus to our next show, and that's the end of the story. I ultimately ended up embarrassing my family and myself."
