Fox & NBC In Bidding War For 'American Idol' Revival


There is a lot of information to take in here, so let's dive in.

It's been rumored for months that 'American Idol' would be returning sooner than later, and we now have more information.

Fox and NBC are currently in a bidding war with Fremantle Media (which owns 'Idol') to bring the long running program back. Sources are saying a decision could be made this week.

NBC is looking to add the show to its lineup to balance 'The Voice'. According to sources, they feel airing two cycles of 'The Voice' per year is getting to be too much, and original coach/judge Adam Levine is said to want it down to 1 as well. This would allow the network to air one at a time.

Of course, with Fox, it would be returning home.

Fox and NBC are both on board to bring Ryan Seacrest in as host, but he may be the only one.

It's being said that Fox never gave up on the show, it just became too costly with whom they had attached. Ryan, Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban, and Harry Connick Jr were proving costly, and they needed to take a step back.

The revival would include a brand new panel of judges.

 I've previously spoken out about this, but need to say more.

Madonna was honored by Billboard as Woman of the Year at last nights event, and when she took the stage....

She delivered a speech that EVERYONE needs to hear!!

Speaking out on the ageism, sexism, and controversy surrounding her legendary career, the Queen of Pop held nothing back.

Including some tears.

If this speech ever needed to be delivered, it was now.

Thank you Madonna.

Read her entire speech below:

"I stand before you as a doormat. Oh, I mean, as a female entertainer," Madonna said. "Thank you for acknowledging my ability to continue my career for 34 years in the face of blatant sexism and misogyny and constant bullying and relentless abuse."

Recalling her life as a teenager when she first moved to New York: 

"People were dying of AIDS everywhere. It wasn’t safe to be gay, it wasn’t cool to be associated with the gay community," Madonna recalled. "It was …

So, while we all take that in, yours truly is also here to talk about about last nights episode of 'All Stars 3', because it was a doozy of an episode, and there's a lot to unpack.

While the episode fell victim to being rushed (non-supersized episode), it also gave us some of the first true gags of the season. Following a somewhat underwhelming Snatch Game, Mama Ru revealed that the two winning queens (Shangela and once again Ben Delacreme) EACH won their lip sync and would each have the power to give one of the bott…

I haven't recovered.......so...bare with me.

Britney Spears took the stage at tonight's Billboard Music Awards with a career-spanning medley, and girl didn't just bring it.....

Liam Payne SLAMS 'X Factor' Judge Louis Walsh After Comments About Cheryl Cole

Hell hath no fury like a baby daddy scorned!!

Liam Payne unloaded on 'X Factor' judge Louis Walsh via Twitter, following Walsh's comments about Liam's girlfriend, former judge Cheryl Cole.

During an interview, Walsh was asked about Cheryl returning to the series next season, and didn't hold back.....while also attacking the interviewer:

 Simon wouldn’t invite Cheryl back because we have Nicole [Scherzinger]. We have Nicole and Sharon [Osbourne] – we don’t need another girl. So go and f–k off now. No silly questions, seriously,” 

“It’s not about Cheryl. Don’t be stupid man,” 

“Well she’s not for me… so f–k off. And you need a haircut.”

Well, it didn't take Liam long to respond!!

Congratulations Louis Walsh for setting the worst example on handling media for his band who are about to step into a very hard industry — Liam (@LiamPayne) December 9, 2016


Maybe it's about time you realise it's not all about you and shut the fuck up for once, let them speak — Liam…
