'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 tweeted, "Snow ain't the only thing falling in Nashville today!!" with a photo of a barber's chair surrounded by his hair. He then wordlessly uploaded a photo of his new haircut, which has rid the musician of his mullet. The top is still pretty long, however, and the blonde highlights remain.

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

She explained: "There is something about that sort of existence that, if you really focus on each other and you're in that bubble, it's very intoxicating, because it's just the two of you. And there is only one other person that's going through it. So it brings you very close, and it's deeply romantic. I'm sure Brad and Angelina have that - because th...

'American Idol' Ratings At An All-Time Low As Producers Consider Big Changes

5/17/2013 1:07pm EDT
American Idol
Despite a grab for ratings by playing up a feud between Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj, viewers have refused to tune in to American Idol's finale performances this season.

The new judges - Carey, Minaj, and Keith Urban - are probably on their way out along with veteran Randy Jackson after a mere 11.57 million American viewers tuned in to watch the 12th season finalists duel it out.

Compared to the 11th season, the show has lost over 2 million viewers. The rating last year was a 4.2, compared to Wednesday's 2.9 score.

One of the reasons for the drop in ratings may be the strength of Candice...

At least it used to be. Once Upon a Time only the Oscars and Super Bowl drew more viewers than this night, but the last couple year it’s viewership has slowly degraded to the point where one of this season’s results shows got beat out in the ratings by a repeat of ‘The Big Bang Theory.’

That’s enough to prove that the ‘Idol’ finale just isn’t anywhere c...

A FOX source told E! there will definitely be no Mariah when the show returns next year. A few weeks ago it was even suggested that Jennifer Lopez was...
