"Dina LaPolt successfully transferred the Fifth Harmony trademark from [Simon] Cowell to the group, meaning the women now own the name, along with the right to control how it is used and to profit from any deals. (The agreement — signed in April 2016, months ahead of Cabello's exit — doesn't name Cabello in the "Fifth Harmony Partnership." "I don't represent Camila," is all LaPolt will say.)"

Billboard possibly exposing 5H for lying about being "blindsided" by Camila Cabello's exit from the group.

brandon rogers audition deceased americas got talent

Gone too soon.

On Tuesday evening, America's Got Talent honored Dr. Brandon Rogers by airing the late medical professional's audition a month after his untimely death. As we previously reported, Rogers died unexpectedly after getting into a terrible car accident back in June. This complicated things for NBC as Brandon was a standout contestant for this season of AGT and his audition hadn't even aired yet.

"At the request of his family we would like to honor his memory by sharing his audition with you."

Hello… it is me you're looking for…

Lionel Richie seems to be the man of the hour for the folks over at American Idol: a new report out this morning alleges that he may in fact be the top pick for a judge spot on the show, to go alongside Katy Perry and an as-yet-unnamed third judge!

Really, though?!?!

Nothing against Richie — he's just… past his prime a bit?! Perry is a younger star, Ryan Seacrest obviously has that whole hosting thing down pat considering the original version of the show is where he got his start, but Lionel Richie?!?!?!?
