After one of the most dominant runs in television history, American Idol will not return after its 15th season this January, Fox announced Monday. Host Ryan Seacrest – the only on-screen talent that has been with the show since its 2002 debut – and the current judges’ table of Jennifer Lopez, Harry Connick Jr. and Keith Urban will be along for Idol‘s last ride.
Fox added that the singing competition series that unearthed Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Hudson, Chris Daughtry and Adam Lambert would stage a “season-long celebratory event” in its last season alongside their search for “the final Idol superstar.” Idol winners have combined for a total of 13 Grammys, led by Underwood’s seven. However, the series hasn’t discovered an award winner in nearly a decade.
“We just signed Ne-Yo who’s going to be writing all new music with Timbaland,” announced Fox co-chairs Dana Walden and Gary Newman to the thrill of anyone who thought mid-’00s R&B was underrated. Fox also announced that Empire will stick around in its time slot, Wednesday nights at 9 p.m. As expected, Fox executives also said that the second season of Empire will consist of 18 episodes split into two halves — one for fall, one for spring — with a crazy cliffhanger for the midseason hiatus in which a fourth Lyon son emerges. He’ll be played by Zac Efron.
A jealous husband who thought his wife was having an affairdecided to get revenge – by putting superglue on her vagina.
The green-eyed husband became obsessed with the idea that his 40-year-old wife was sleeping with her uncle after he dropped her off at home one day in South Africa.
Locking her in a bedroom the 45-year-old forced her to strip while pointing a machete at her and threatened to chop her head off if she did not do as he said.
The distraught woman said: “He had previously tried to cut my hand off so I was terrified.
“He ordered me to lie down and open my legs and then took out super glue and applied it to my vagina.
“I had tears streaming down my face and was begging him to stop, but he didn’t seem to care.
“I do not know what would make a man who loves a woman do that to her.”
Empire’s done it again, folks: the show’s sixth episode, “Out, Damned Spot,” hit yet another series high, with an amazing 12 million viewers. For those of you not keeping track at home, that means the FOX hit has grown in the ratings every single week so far.
Four weeks into its inaugural season, Fox’s music industry drama Empire has continued to rise in the ratings. Whether you’re among those praising the show or merely hate-watching to share Twitter slander (more on the hate-watching phenomenon, here), Empire has already been renewed for a second season, so it’s not going away anytime soon. In fact, the show is only looking to increase its star power with the likes of T.I. and Ashton Kutcher in talks to join the cast in Season 2. One other player who co-creator Lee Daniels is attempting to add to the cast is Diddy‘s 23-year-old son, Quincy. Diddy however, isn’t completely on board with the casting.
