Well, back to the drawing board.
Despite being close to a deal, Jennifer Lopez apparently was too demanding, according to People.
Lopez must have been making the “Idol” producers feel nostalgic for Paula Abdul!
Sigh… I’m sure they have back ups but who? Any ideas of good women they should choose? Nick Cannon is suggesting his squeeze Mariah Carey. She could be great but probably equally if not more demanding than J. Lo.
And proving how far afield “Idol” went seeking judges, today I was interviewing Curt Smith, lead singer of Tears For Fears today to promote the duo’s August 26 appearance at Chastain Park Amphitheatre. Even HE talked with “Idol” producers about becoming a judge. Though open to the idea, he doubts he’s among those seriously in the running.
Smith, who lives in Los Angeles with his wife and two daughters, did attend the season eight finale when Adam Lambert reprised his song “Mad World,” which he enjoyed. “I loved how he made every song his own,” Smith said, taking a line from Abdul’s “Idol” judging phrase book.
Radaronline has part of the 911 call reporting Fantasia’s alleged suicide attempt Monday ngiht.
VH1 told Access Hollywood that the show will be re-worked in light of the recent events. The show was not filming this week. (Presumably, they are wrapped up and in post production.). How they will rejigger it to reflect what has happened, I’m curious to see!
And as VH1 knows, the ratings will probably be much higher as a result.
