The X-Factor

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!

Well, this is awkward!  Perhaps we won't be seeing Kim Kardashian trying to upstage her sister Khloe on her new X Factor gig, given that her ex-husband (the first one, not Kris Humphries) will be one of the mentors on the upcoming season.

Damon Thomas, who has nothing but not nice things to say about his ex-wife, is going to be a fixture once Khloe starts her hosting gig along side Mario Lopez.  I may have to actually tune into the next season to see the whole uncomfortable dynamic of it all!  How horrifically amazing!  I bet Kris Jenner is beside herself.  Loves it!

Good news for reality TV fans today!  Both The X Factor and Kendra on Top have been renewed for another season!

Deadline Hollywood reports that despite slightly lower numbers this season, The X Factor has been picked up for season 3.  Nobody is happier about the news than Simon Cowell.  “I couldn’t be happier about The X Factor already being renewed for another season.  I am so proud of the show and the team who have made it this season.”  The X Factor has been averaging 10.6 million viewers. It seems the revamp of the show by hiring Britney Spears and Demi Lovato is paying off.

Another show, whose ratings seem to be a bit of a secret, Kendra on Top, will be returning to the WE network for another season of sass and stilettoes.  WE tv ordered 12 episodes of the 30 minute show starring former Playboy model Kendra Wilkinson and her family, plus 2 hour-long specials.

Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins, a member of the R&B group TLC, has landed a new reality show on… wait for it… TLCTotally T-Boz will follow T-Boz, 42, from Atlanta to L.A., where she'll attempt to reestablish her music career.

“This series will open the door into T-Boz’s struggles and successes, and the people who are there to support her as she works to make her dreams come true all over again,” TLC's GM Amy Winter says.

This will be T-Boz's third reality show. In 2005, T-Boz and fellow band mate Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas starred in R U The Girl on UPN. Also, T-Boz appeared on Celebrity Apprentice in 2009.

It seems like every singer under the sun’s name has been mentioned as a potential American Idol judge.  From Nick Jonas to Diddy, everyone is “in talks” to fill that third seat.  However, some of artists who have been approached to critique young hopefuls have turned down the gig.

Case in point?  The punkish pop star Pink does NOT want to be giving advice to unknown singers trying to make it big.  In fact, she’s turned down the opportunity to judge on both AI and X Factor because she thinks there are too many of these reality television talent shows on the air.  She doesn’t want any part of it!

Rumor has it that Khloe Kardashian may be heading for another reality show!

Insiders tell TMZ that Khloe is among six finalists in the running for a spot on The X Factor.  Mrs. Odom is hoping to land the job as a host on the show. The final six are due to start their screen tests in the next two weeks.

Some of the others being considered for the spot: Eddie Murphy’s girlfriend Rocsi Diaz, Mario Lopez, Stacy Keibler, Kelly Osbourne, Erin Andrews and The Vampire Diaries star Kat Graham.

Following two major commercials on Sunday’s Superbowl, Simon Cowell is now revealing more details about the upcoming reality show – The X Factor (the American version).

While the full list of judges has yet to be selected, Simon does confirm he will be a judge on the show. “Once the show goes into production, I become a judge,” Simon told reporters Monday. “Then I have to put my trust into the producers’ hands, which is effectively how it works in the U.K. Yes, I am judging.”

Simon will also serve as an executive producer on the show, while helping in the selection of the judging panel. Nicole Scherzinger, Jessica Simpson, Paula Abdul, Rihanna, Cheryl Cole, Katy Perry and Will Smith are just some of the names that have been rumored as possible judges on the show.

So should we expect a nicer Simon on this new show? “I am gong to try and be consistent, as I have been over the years … People know what to expect if I’m on the judging panel. I don’t think things will change too much,” he said. We’ll take that as a no.

As for Simon’s thoughts or critique rather on the current and 10th season of American Idol, Simon reveals he is not an avid watcher. “I haven’t seen a full episode. I’ve seen three minutes of a recap. From what I’ve seen and from what I’ve heard, it all seems to be going well.”

According to Simon, he is hoping to make the announcement of the judges in three to four weeks. The winner of X Factor will also be awarded a $5 million record deal, in what is being called the largest guaranteed prize in TV history.

Lee Dewyze American Idol Finale

The ninth season of American Idol came to a dramatic end last night as Lee DeWyze was crowned the Idol winner, beating out favorite Crystal Bowersox.

Lee, a shy 24-year-old painter from Chicago, appeared shell shocked after being announced the next winner of AI by host Ryan Seacrest.  “This is amazing!” said Lee. “Thank you guys so much for everything… I can’t believe this… I’m so happy right now. I’ve never been happier in my life!”

Lee continued, “Throughout the season, the word ‘confidence’ has come up with me a lot. I think looking confident and being confident are two different things for me,” he said. “If I wasn’t confident, I wouldn’t be able to do this.”

However the night wasn’t all about Lee, as it was also judge Simon Cowell’s last night on the hit show. Simon, who is leaving AI after eight years to become a producer and judge on the American version of The X Factor, set to debut in 2011, got a bit teary eyed during his farewell.

“I didn’t think I was going to be this emotional, but I genuinely am,” said Simon as he joined past AI contestants onstage. “The show will go forward, it’ll be different, but I just want to thank you for the support, the fun and… everyone, your sense of humor, thats what’s been the best part.”

Along with past Idol contestants, former judge Paula Abdul also returned to bid farewell to Simon.  The finale show also included a hot performances by Janet Jackson, Christina Aguilera, Alice Cooper, and Alanis Morisette, as well as a surprise performance by rocker Bret Michaels.
