And just like magic, Stevie Nicks is back!

After appearing (literally) on American Horror Story, Fleetwood Mac's Gold Dust Woman is bringing her witchy ways to the ACM Awards!

Stevie is joining Lady Antebellum for a special, once-in-a-lifetime performance!

Also taking the stage at the ceremony are Toby Keith and Eric Church.

They join the previously announced Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton, Keith Urban, Luke Bryan, and Jason Aldean.

Sounds like it's going to be a heck of a country shindig! Especially if Taylor Swift gets nominated for all those awards she wants!

The tribe TV viewers have spoken…

American Idol, you have been beat by Survivor for the first time EVER!

It was a photo finish but the long-running CBS reality show appears to have edged out FOX’s singing competition by only a few hundred thousand viewers and a fraction of a rating’s point!

Survivor: Cagayan won Wednesday night with an audience of 9.86 million viewers and a key demo rating of 2.5 while A.I. came in second with 9.57 million watching at home and a 2.3 rating among adults 18-49.

Damn that’s close!

There is a catch however…

American Idol Is Projected To Lose Money This Year! Find Out Why They'll Be In The Red HERE!

American Idol is on a steady path to losing money this year, as ratings are down 26% from last season!

Even with all the show's changes in 2014, including the additions of Harry Connick Jr. and Jennifer Lopez to the judge's panel, negative financials are unfortunately on the horizon for the first time since the premiere in 2002!

But what are some of the rumored reasons behind the money slump?!

The FOX series pays a ton for Ryan Seacrest and Jen, as they allegedly get $15 million each - as well as spending between $5-$7 million on a new set this year!

Did we mention it's rumored to cost them $5 million for viewer phone calls alone?!

That said, the insiders are saying AI is probably not getting cancelled after this season, but hopefully they'll be able to make up for their losses!

And if that doesn't happens, it looks like they will have to snip their budget significantly!

Ratings Loser! American Idol Fails To Hold Its Own Against The Sochi Winter Olympics!

This is not looking too good.

The numbers just continue to dwindle down for American Idol!

AI's 13th season was off to a rough start with an abysmal number of viewers tuning in for its season premiere, despite the fact that Jennifer Lopez returned and Harry Connick Jr. joined the panel alongside Keith Urban!

Now there's this!

Last night, the singing competition was competing against the Sochi Winter Olympics and they did not come out on top. In fact, AI scored its lowest ratings EVER.

So sad!

Sure, it probably had to with the fact that it's the last week of the Sochi games and everyone in the country was glued to their seats watching all the wintery competitions, but surely there's still a big AI fan base out there?!

Maybe it's time to hang up the music stands after 13 good seasons.

American Idol Has Its 1st Openly Gay Contestant In The Show’s History! Meet Emkay Nobilette!

| Filed under: TV NewsGay Gay GayAmerican IdolJennifer LopezKeith UrbanReality TV

For the first time EVER, American Idol has an openly gay contestant in the Top 30!

YESSS!!!

20-year-old Emkay Nobilette sang her way into the solo round with a performance of Ed Sheeran’s hit The A-Team.

MK clearly has what it takes to win it all! Even judge Jennifer Lopez admitted that she got goosebumps listening to her sing!

J. Lo described Nobilette’s talent, saying:

American Idol Mom Freaks Out & Gives Micromanaging Parenting A Whole New Meaning! Watch As She Goes OFF On Another Contestant!

This mom makes snapping fingers Kate Gosselin look like a saint!

American Idol had a doozy of an episode last night when one contestant's mom barged her way onto the show!

Contestant Stephanie Hanvey was with Nica Nashae and Cara Watson during the show's super hard week of group performances. They teamed up with pink haired Jessica Meuse whose own group fell apart the night before.

Jessica didn't have time to learn all of the lyrics to the group's performance of Beyoncé's Single Ladies, but still did enough of an admirable job to have Jennifer Lopez near tears!!

But when J.Lo, Keith Urban, and Harry Connick Jr. decided to go with everyone but Stephanie Hanvey - the 16-year-old's mom immediately started shouting at the judges!!

If that wasn't enough - she went on stage, and started BERATING Jessica Meuse for not knowing the lyrics plus criticized the other group members for not wanting to practice! All Stephanie could do was stand in shock as her momma embarrassed her live on national television!

Jessica Meuse was SO mad at this obtrusive mom that she walked off right in the middle of the mom's rant! Which was definitely a good call.

Check out this cringe-worthy-yet-you-can't-help-but-watch video right (above) !!!

Jennifer Lopez Shares An Awkwardly Adorable Pic Of Her Younger Self On American Idol! See It HERE!

There are throwbacks and then there are throwbacks! We think this J.Lo pic falls into the latter category!

During last night's episode of American Idol the foxy FOX show host shared a vintage picture of herself, and it was the cutest thing EVER!

Jennifer Lopez and Idol co-judges Harry Connick Jr. and Keith Urban were holding open auditions in Salt Lake City, but when pressed they all pretty much admitted there was no way in hell they'd win the show if it were around when they were coming up in the biz!

Somehow that discussion evolved into a nostalgic look back at each judge's first television appearances!

If you thought J.Lo looked triple cray as a fly girl from In Living Color, just wait until you see Keith's original look…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
