Many congrats to Simon for the honor! Completely deserved!

Deets Revealed About J. Lo's New Reality Show!

details revealed about jlos new reality show

Last week, we were excited to learn that Jennifer Lopez was looking to start her own reality singing talent show with husband Marc Anthony, and producer Simon Fuller!

We had heard that the show would revolve around J. Lo and her hubby traveling around Latin America looking for raw and untapped singing talent!

Now, official details of J. Lo's show have been announced, and we're loving what we're hearing!

The show is called Q’Viva! The Choice, and it's being put together by Simon Fuller's XIX Entertainment, along with J. Lo & hubby Marc Anthony, and music tour director/choreographer Jamie King.

Q'Viva will be shot in three languages, and it will be "broadcast simultaneously across 21 countries.”

Here's what J. Lo had to say about the show in a statement:

“This is a show for the 21st century with an unprecedented global and local story. The Latin culture is a tapestry that is rich in passion, tradition and artistry. We are going to places where all of this talent lives and wouldn’t have otherwise been discovered. This journey for me and Marc is going be exciting and groundbreaking.”

As we mentioned before, given Simon Fuller AND J. Lo's involvement with American Idol, the show isn't being viewed as a direct Idol competitor. In fact, J. Lo still MAY return to Idol as a judge next season, even with her new show.

We're very excited! We will DEF be tuning in for this one!

Richard Rushfield's American Idol: The Untold Story is released today and in an excerpt from the book, it explains the growing tension between Idol creator Simon Fuller and judge Simon Cowell.

Cowell was so against returning to the show that he turned down a $130 million a year deal.

Wowsa!

More Spice Girls, Please!

Melanie C (aka Sport Spice) is supporting Simon Fuller's campaign for the Spice Girls to perform at the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games - and we think it's a great idea!

She said:

"Officially we don't know anything yet but I think it's a brilliant idea. It would be wonderful for all five of us to appear and I'm sure all the girls would be up for it. Let's petition for this and make it happen."

Considering they're not touring, would this one-time reunion be so much to ask?!

Sony Loses American Idol Music Rights

Filed under: Music MinuteAmerican Idol

There's more shake-up going on at AI!

Sony has lost the American Idol's music rights to Universal Music Group.

19 Entertainment and Idol creator Simon Fuller struck a deal with Universal saying:

"With Idol celebrating our 10th season I wanted to inject some new power and weight behind our brand. We have been quietly delivering hits relentlessly for 9 seasons and Lucian Grainge and Jimmy Iovine's (Chairman, Interscope Geffen A&M) ambition, commitment, and determination to push the boundaries and go even further with Idol was very compelling. It is exciting to have the world’s biggest show partnered with the world’s biggest music company.”

AI has sold more music than any other TV show and has moved more than 100 million units in North America and 120 million songs on iTunes. It seems like Fuller wasn't happy with the job Sony was doing to promote and handle such a powerhouse as American Idol.

Hmm, we wonder how many more changes are on the way…

Simpleton To Judge American Idol???

jesswenn5458894.jpg

No. No. NO!

Stop offering our job to everyone else BUT us!!!

Life & Style is reporting that Jessica Simpson is in negotiations to become the next judge on American Idol! Their sources say that she has already met with the producers and everyone really "likes" her. Now, it's just a matter of fitting her in.

Of course, her dad/manager Joe Simpson is thrilled by the idea and having a preexisting relationship with the show works in her favor.

Here's the thing. We actually think she would make an excellent replacement…for Paula Abdul. Think about it - they've had similar musical careers and they both have have similar, uhmmm, sensibilities.

We're getting a case of the giggles just thinking of the stoopid shiz that would come out of Jessipoop's mouth.

But the show needs a new Simon Cowell, not a new Paula.

Time is ticking away, Idol. You've got to get serious about this thing and start looking at those who are the most qualified.

Like PEREZ! PEREZ! PEREZ! PEREZ! PEREZ! PEREZ! PEREZ! PEREZ!
