Is Adam Lambert the next "Idol" judge? [photo: Jason LaVeris/FilmMagic]Rumors circulated this week that Fox honchos, desperate to retool and salvage "American Idol" after a disastrous 12th season, are considering replacing the entire judging panel with "Idol" alums. Such a strategy may seem a little too self-referential, a little too retroactive, and definitely gimmicky, but you know…it just might work.Read More »from 10 ‘Idol’ Contestants Who’d Make Great ‘Idol’ Judges

Usher has lost two of his contestants since the Season 4 "Voice" live shows have begun, but Team Usher is only down, not out. Usher still has his not-so-secret weapon, breakout contestant Michelle Chamuel...and in the end, all it will take is one contestant to win the season. And Usher believes that Michelle is the one.Read More »from Exclusive: Usher Says Michelle Chamuel Will Win ‘The Voice’
Last night, Kris Thomas and Josiah Hawley went home on "The Voice"...leaving Shakira and Usher with only one contestant each, and the show with only one remaining male contestant. (Yes, the Swon Brothers are a duo, but they still technically count as one contestant.) So far, this really does look like a girls' season for "The Voice"...and it looks like it's going to be a Team Adam or Team Blake season, too, at this rate.Read More »from The Voice, The Day After: Top 10 Results Dish

photo: Ben Pruchnie/WireImageThe ever-rotating "Voice USA" judging lineup has been in the news lately, but across the pond, the British version of the show stars a true vocal legend: iconic Welsh crooner Tom Jones. The Sex Bomb himself!
The other coaches on "The Voice U.K." are will.i.am, Jessie J, and Danny O'Donoghue of the Script — but Sir Tom, who's sold 100 million records over the course of the past six decades, brings a certain credible cool to the series.Read More »from Exclusive! Tom Jones Talks ‘The Voice U.K.’
Hampton Williams returns with his family"So You Think You Can Dance," aka the best show on television, returned to Fox this Tuesday for its third episode of Season 10, airing more auditions from Los Angeles and Austin. With both cities being major music hubs in the U.S., the odds of the episode finding some very impressive dancers were high — and the show did not disappoint.
But the least disappointing (as is, most awesome) moment of all was when a beloved dancer from Season 9 showed up at the end of the episode to give "SYTYCD" another go. Will this be the year that Hampton Williams, aka the so-brilliant-it's-scary "Exorcist," makes it to the live shows? If so, he's definitely going to be the man to beat.Read More »from ‘SYTYCD’ Auditions, Part 3: The Exorcist Returns!

Sebastian Bach is returning to reality TV! [photo: Frazer Harrison/Getty]In a singing-show era when most networks are scrambling to stunt-cast celebrity judges, ABC has flipped the script and greenlit a sure-to-be-amazing new talent show called "Sing Your Face Off," which — in the grand and noble tradition of novelty shows like "Celebrity Duets," "Gone Country," and "But Can They Sing?" — will feature a wonderfully random assortment of semi-famous faces on the stage, not behind the judging table.
