We knew the music industry was cut-throat, but this is craaaaay!
A middle-aged rural Pennsylvania couple had a difference of opinion over a crucial episode of American Idol earlier this month, and things quickly got out of control!!
Fifty-seven-year-old Gregory Stambaugh and his 48-year-old wife Karen Elaine Harrelson were so passionately split about Candice Glover vs. Kree Harrison that they broke out the kitchen cutlery and STABBED each other!
Jennifer Hudson is in and Kelly Clarkson is out, but who will take the next seat on the American Idol judging panel??!
In an effort to squash season 12's horrific ratings, AI is looking to their OWN past contestants to boost viewership and Adam Lambert is absolutely up for the job.
In fact, the former Idol is SO excited at the prospect that he would accept an invitation to join the team on the spot.
The Whataya Want from Me singer said:
As we've all seen by now, it was certainly not as #Beautiful of a morning as it could have been for Mariah Carey!
The diva took the Good Morning America stage in Central Park this AM for their summer concert series, and between her on-air s-bomb, a SERIOUS wardrobe malfunction, and her general wacky one-liners and quips scattered throughout the set, it was pretty much controlled chaos from the get-go!
And that's NOT even factoring her, ahem, surprisingly "off" vocal stylingz!
However, those folks watching west coast feed
Tom Cruise took a little bit of time out of his busy schedule to hit up the Staples Center for some Stanley Cup Playoff action!
But it wasn't the Los Angeles Kings' impressive 3-0 victory over the San Jose Sharks that caught his eye. It was Pia Toscano!
The former American Idol was on hand to sing The Star-Spangled Banner, and apparently the actor was SOO blown away he just had to give her some props himself!
Oh man, having the ORIGINAL American Idol return as an AI judge would have MADE season 13! Sigh.
Rumors have raged concerning the identifies of next season's American Idol judges ever since news broke that NONE of the current judges will be invited back…
And we were THRILLED to hear that Kelly Clarkson, along with former AI contestants Adam Lambert and Jennifer Hudson, are all in talks to fill the vacant spots.
But unfortunately, it seems the the beautiful belter will NOT be returning to the show that launched her career, as her rep has DENIED her involvement.
However, thank the AI lordz, cause J-Hud has been CONFIRMED as a judge for season 13! Huzzah!
And IF they secure Adam Lambert and other former AI participants, perhaps the throwback hiring will be enough to save the show from cancellation.
The rumors were true! The rumors were true!
In an effort to entice viewers back into the world of American Idol, producers have decided to bring superstar alum Jennifer Hudson on board as a judge!
Multiple sources have confirmed that she has signed on for Season 13, which airs this Fall.
Kelly Clarkson is reportedly very close to signing on as well, with the third spot being reserved for either Adam Lambert or Clay Aiken.
We'll keep you updated!! Congrats, J-Hud!!

He just might be if executives have their way.
And we approve!
Now that American Idol seems to be revamping their judge's panel yet again, Bruno Mars could find himself in one of those
spinning cushy chairs.
In fact, he could find himself scoring a spot VERY soon if things go right. A source revealed:
