And then there were four. For the first time this season, a female finalist was eliminated on American Idol Thursday night. Who was it?
It's not uncommon for American Idol viewers to witness nervous delivery, a lack of self-confidence and awkward pandering on the show. Unfortunately, this season, much of that has come from the judges' table — or more specifically, from Mariah Carey. Who would have thought that someone who's built an entire public persona around being a capital-D Diva would suddenly turn into a shrinking violet when faced with a group of young aspiring singers?
More than its big red chairs or its talented contestants, The Voice has become known for its dynamic team of coaches. So, what happens when you mess with that chemistry? That's the question facing Season 4 of the hit NBC singing competition as it premieres on Monday at 8/7c. Gone are Cee Lo Green's hilarious pet sidekicks (KIT Purrfect) and Christina Aguilera's colorful wardrobe. In their places are R&B hitmaker Usher and international songstress Shakira, who will work alongside — and compete...

Mariah Carey. Nicki Minaj. Keith Urban. Shakira. Usher. In recent years, the revolving door at the judges' table on reality singing competitions like American Idol and The Voice has seen a lot of action. And The X Factor has been no exception, cleaning house following the first season by handing pink slips to judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger (who, in turn, replaced Cheryl Cole, who was ousted during the auditions) and hiring on Demi Lovato and Britney Spears in Season 2.
Now Simon Cowell and producers must return to the drawing board to find a replacement for L.A. Reid, who announced last week he will not return for the show's third season. So who should replace him? We asked The X Factor's Reid, Cowell and co-host Mario Lopez that very question backstage after Thursday's finale...
Another spot is opening up on The X Factor judges table.
After undergoing a major overhaul for the singing competition's current season, L.A. Reid will be exiting the show to devote more time to his day job as chairman of Epic Records, according to The Hollywood Reporter. "I have the utmost respect for....

Our top moments of the week:
12. Least Favorite Follow-Up: Knowing how gravely she deprived us of ear-piecing screams and uncontrollable tears last year, Oprah Winfrey resurrects her "Favorite Things" — except it's not the "Favorite Things" we know and love. As part of a making-of documentary — during which O thinks she's getting high from pigs in a blanket — the episode features only 30 handpicked military spouses, who do their best freak-outs, but it's all a little flat. Let's face it, strength is in numbers. At least we'll always have SNL.
