We all should, really, for being so LAME. As rumored this week, Idol may shake up its entire judging panel next season in an effort to boost ratings. It’s getting beaten in the adult demo by repeats of The Big Bang Theory and a fresh-from-the-swamp ep of Duck Dynasty. Oof. Does the show even matter anymore? It’s, like, way existential.

So, now that the 55th Annual Grammys have officially ended, it’s time to ask the most important question of the night: Were all of the televised buttocks and female breasts adequately covered?
This year, CBS issued a memo outlining their preferred list of dos and dont’s regarding Grammy outfits. In addition to banning inadequately covered buns and boobs, the pearls-clutching network also advised against such scandalous sartorial cues as “thong type costumes,” “bare fleshy under curves of the buttocks and buttock crack,” “female breast nipples,” and other similarly steamy phrases.
And, of course, the Grammy guests didn’t listen to any of that noise. Below, check out our list of stars who dared to bare at this year’s Grammys: READ FULL STORY »
Well, that settles it (maybe, possibly, probably not): According to CNN, an unnamed inaugural official has confirmed that Beyoncé lip-synched while performing the “Star-Spangled Banner” on Monday.
“Because she didn’t have time to rehearse with the Marine Band, she decided to use her recording with the Marine Band,” the official said, noting that the singer didn’t arrive in Washington D.C. until late Sunday night. The official doesn’t know why Beyoncé elected not to sing live — by all accounts, “she was spot on” in her pre-recording session, and “she’s actually a very good live singer.” There’s apparently no word on why Bey ripped out her earpiece mid-song, either.
As lip-sync-gate rages on, Beyoncé still hasn’t responded to requests for comment or released a statement about whether her Inauguration Day vocals were live or pre-recorded. But either way, Bey can count on the support of her peers — i.e. fellow megastars who understand that sometimes, lip-synching is a necessary evil.
Jennifer Lopez didn’t exactly defend Queen B’s honor while visiting The Daily Show last night — but she did acknowledge that basically every musician has to rely on pre-recorded tracks in certain contexts. “You know, sometimes it happens,” she explained to Jon Stewart. “When you’re in certain stadiums and in certain venues, they do pre-record things.” She also cited Whitney Houston’s iconic “Star-Spangled Banner” as proof that even the greatest singers lip-sync sometimes — “All performers do have to do it at some point.”

Steven Tyler announced yesterday that he would not be returning as a judge to American Idol next season, and just moments ago Jennifer Lopez followed suit, announcing that the past season of Idol would be her last.
With Randy Jackson’s spot up in the air, the judging panel for the 12th season of the singing show staple is wide open. PopWatch got to brainstorming who we’d love to see in the judges’ (non-spinny) chairs.
Jennifer Lopez was on Today this morning talking about her role in Ice Age: Continental Drift (she’ll voice a saucy tigress, of course) when the chat turned to American Idol.
Speculation has been rampant that Lopez won’t return to the program next season after two years as a judge. While Lopez officially said that she hadn’t made a decision yet, her wavering sure sounded like she’s making an exit. She explained that while she loved doing Idol, it’s a busy schedule and there are a lot of other things she has to say no to in order to continue on the program—movies, another album, etc. “At the end of the day, whichever way, it’s a heartbreaking decision if I’m going to have to go,” Lopez said.
She further explained, “Like I said, I’ve just enjoyed it so much. But I am thinking that maybe it’s time for me to go and do other things that I really love to do.”
