We all know that new additions have been made to The Voice 2013, as Shakira and Usher will find themselves in those big red chairs as The Voice Season 4 judges. Shakira will be replacing Christina Aguilera and Usher will be replacing Cee Lo Green on the judges’ panel, but it is not a full-time replacement, as Christina and Cee Lo are busy with their own projects and need a little time off. NBC has released new promo pictures for The Voice 2013 and you can see the new judges are fitting in real well with those big red chairs!
I can see why Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green needed some time off from The Voice Season 4, because it seems like Season 3 just ended and we are already talking about Season 4! The Voice 2013 kicks off on NBC on March 25, so we still do have time before we are back in the swing of things. Speaking of swing of things, it looks like Shakira and Usher are getting into the swing of things with NBC and The Voice. The new pictures have both the new coaches looking quite comfy in the chairs.
2013 didn’t get off to a great start for American Idol winner Kris Allen, as he was involved in a head-on crash that sent him and his pregnant wife to the hospital. Kris Allen was the winner of American Idol Season 8 and had a rough 2012, as he split from his recording label, RCA Records, and now was out trying to establish himself again and increase record sales. Kris Allen injured in car accident, but it is nothing that will keep him back from going out and performing.
The accident left Kris Allen with a broken arm while his wife was left with unspecified injuries. His mother tweeted out the picture above saying, “From Kris: he’s in a lot of pain, arm broke, may not play guitar for a while. Prayers welcome please! #headoncollision”
The rumors are true: Kim Kardashian pregnant as Kanye West confirmed the pregnancy rumors at his recent concert. This is the first child for both Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. Expect it to be a long next few months, as we will all be on baby watch for the Kim Kardashian pregnancy. The announcement has just come about and I am already sick of hearing about! Anyone else dreading this Kim Kardashian and Kanye West pregnancy news?
At his concert in Atlantic City, Kanye West told the concert goers that Kim Kardashian was indeed pregnant. He said, “stop the music and make noise for my baby mama.” Kim Kardashian was in the audience and that only started the craze on Twitter, as the Kardashian clan was happy to finally spread the love. Khloe Kardashian tweeted: “KIMYE!!!” and then added: “Keeping secrets is hard with so many family members! Especially when you are so freaking excited!!!!! LOVE is everything!!!!”
Will she or won’t she? That is the big question on tonight’s episode of Ice Loves Coco 2012, as Coco prepares to leave for a few months to do her show in Las Vegas. Will Coco be able to leave Ice behind for three months or will she cancel her plans to do her Peep Show? The drama continues tonight on Ice Loves Coco Season 3, as Coco continues her rehearsals and gets ready for the move to Vegas for three months. Don’t miss a thing during my Ice Loves Coco 2012 recap.
Last week on Ice Loves Coco 2012 we got to see the devastation that took place when Hurricane Sandy hit the East Coast. Ice and Coco made it through the devastating storms and survived with no power and floods, but thanks to Ice’s ability to get ghetto, he rigged up some electricity to the fridge and fish tank, so they could eat and keep the fish alive. With all the bad news hitting the area, Coco decided it would be best to help out those really and need and they all helped serve meals at the Salvation Army.
For all you Robin Roberts fans out there, you will have to wait a little bit longer before you see Robin Roberts on Good Morning America. Her return as co-host of GMA is expected to be as late as May 2013 or even June 2013. Don’t fret though, she is moving along as scheduled with her treatments, but as a precaution they want to keep her out of the office and focused on her health, which I think is a very good choice. Good Morning America wants her back for the ratings boost she will bring, but I’m sure her health is more of a concern for the network executives at GMA.
Back in June, Robin Roberts announced on Good Morning America that she had MDS, which some doctors call preleukemia. She would be leaving her role as co-host on GMA while she received a bone marrow transplant from her sister Sally Roberts. The disease came about from her treatment from breast cancer in 2007. While statistics are scary for the disease, Robin is a very healthy woman and was expected to make it through everything just fine.
With The Voice 2012 and The X Factor USA 2012 gaining popularity maybe it is time for American Idol 2013 to make some changes to their format in hopes of gaining some of their ratings back? Rumors have been flying around on who makes the Top 40 for American Idol Season 12 and now it seems like there may be some changes to the voting system that has remained the same for American Idol over the previous 11 seasons. What will those voting changes for American Idol 2013 be?
While America still has the say in the winner for American Idol Season 12, they did introduce the “Judges Save” a few seasons ago so we don’t see another talented singer leave us early, like Jennifer Hudson and Chris Daughtry both did in their seasons! Now it seems that the show doesn’t want to give control of the voting over to the public quite so early. It seems that America won’t have a say on who goes home until the American Idol 2013 Top 10 take the stage!
They may not have won the $5 million recording contract on The X Factor USA 2012, but it looks like Simon Cowell to sign Fifth Harmony may become a reality. The girl group made a surprise run to The X Factor USA Season 2 Finale, which goes to show they have a big fan base out there, but are they worthy enough of being signed by Simon Cowell’s label? Simon Cowell has hinted at a possible signing of the girls from The X Factor 2012!
Fifth Harmony was the all-girl group formed by The X Factor judges after the audition rounds. They consist of Dinah Jane Hansen, Lauren Jauregui, Ally Brooke, Normani Hamilton and Camila Cabello. Fifth Harmony vary in ages from 15-19 and seemed to grow close as a group throughout the season. They all have amazing voices, but to me they just needed more time to grow together as a group. Simon Cowell seems to think they have some major potential, as he said at The X Factor USA 2012 Finale: “There is such a market now for this girl band I believe, I think where there’s boy bands there’ll be girl bands. We may have someone who can fit that gap!”
It seems we have some unhappy people at The X Factor USA 2012 and rumors are saying that Britney Spears fired as X Factor judge after just one season! We all know the show has struggled in it’s two seasons to keep up with The Voice in the ratings and has juggled judges, but are they really getting rid of Britney Spears on The X Factor Season 3? FOX did announce that The X Factor would return for Season 3, but who the judges will be is unknown and now sources are saying Britney Spears fired as The X Factor USA judge!
Us Weekly is reporting that FOX is not happy with Britney Spears and her half-claps and one-line critiques, so she may not be worth the $15 million paycheck she took in during The X Factor USA Season 2. A source told Us Weekly, “They paid all that for her to say ‘amazing’ and offer half-claps.”
With only five designers left on Project Runway All Stars Season 2, this is going to be a huge challenge for the designers and their hopes of winning PR All Stars 2012! As Project Runway history shows, usually the final four designers head home and make collections that may or may not be shown during Fashion Week. With this being Project Runway All Stars, things may go differently, but you still want to make it one step closer to the finals. It is time for the Ready To Wear Challenge on PR All Stars Season 2, so get ready for it and check out the Project Runway All Stars Season 2 preview below.
Last week on Project Runway All Stars 2012, it was all about the feathers and sequins, so right up the alley of Uli and her designs, right? We had a Flapper Fashion Face-Off, as the final six designers were put up against each other in a head-to-head battle. Laura Kathleen was paired against Uli, so she had a tough battle on her hands. This was Uli’s strength and it showed in her final piece. While all the looks were good, the judges were least impressed with Laura Kathleen’s look and the fur she used and she was sent home.
As the season progresses on Top Chef Seattle, I find myself getting more and more invested in who wins Top Chef Season 10! The beginning of these shows always get me all frazzled, as we try to learn the new chefs and then try to pick out the ones who might make it on Top Chef 2012. We have begun to weed out some of the competition and now are down to 10 chefs and we are getting closer to finding out who won Top Chef Seattle. Come watch tonight with me during my Top Chef Seattle Live Recap and find out who was eliminated on Top Chef Season 10!
Last week it was all about aluminum foil, as the cheftestants took on a Quickfire Challenge of preparing a dish that was cooked and prepared using only aluminum foil! This was quite interesting because the chefs had to go into the pantry and grab ingredients completely wrapped in foil, but whatever ingredients they unwrapped then they had to use that in their dish! Kristen got ballsy and made a cake in aluminum foil, but it paid off and she won the challenge and immunity. It was all about berries in the Elimination Challenge on Top Chef Seattle, as the chefs paired up for a showdown cooking berries. In the end, Danyele seemed to lack confidence every week and it showed in her dishes and she was sent home.
