'American Idol' Recap: New Judges Means A New Show

American Idol
13 Years in and suddenly 'Idol' seems like it's playing catch-up.

In what it's hoping isn't its unlucky thirteenth season, 'American Idol' attempted yet another reinvention last night, veering farther away from the snide formula that made it such a breakout success all those summers ago. Gone is the ridicule, the delight at disaster and general amateur nature of the show. Instead, it's mostly good contestants and enough sob/inspiration stories to fill a week's worth of Olympics coverage.

Even worse than that, we're getting to know the contestants before they even sing a bar. Banter abound...

Keith Urban's new haircut
Keith Urban's shoulder-length hair is as recognizable as his face - but yesterday the country star sat in a barber's chair for a drastic change.

Urban's twitter profile still shows the "classic" Urban hair promoting his album Fuse on iTunes.
