Despite the series plunging to all-time low ratings on Season 13, Fox has confirmed that Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick, Jr. will all return as judges for the upcoming go-around.
Ryan Seacrest, of course, will also be back as host.
“Jennifer, Keith, Harry and Ryan are the very best in the business at what they do, and I’m thrilled that they are returning to American Idol for another season,” said David Hill, Senior Executive VP, 21st Century Fox.
“Each brings unique qualities and expertise to the team, but they all share the same passion for helping undiscovered singers achieve the American dream.”
American Idol, which crowned Caleb Johnson champion, fell 28 percent among adults 18-49 last season, but few blamed the judging panel, which displayed solid chemistry.
Most believe the show has just naturally grown stale over such a long run, with other singing programs (The Voice, mainly) offering up new competition.
Season 14 will kick sing off in January.
Kristen Bell: Pregnant with Second Child!
Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are set to be parents for the second time.
A rep for the couple tells Entertainment Tonight that Bell and Shepard will welcome a sibling for daughter Lincoln some time in the next few months.
“The whole family is beyond excited,” the rep says.
Bell has been an awesomely outspoken mom ever since giving birth last year.
First, she said she would not play the “baby weight rat race,” accepting that packing on a few pounds is the price one pays to become a mother.
Then, she helped lead the fight against paparazzi snapping photos of stars and their kids, creating the “No Kids Policy” to which The Hollywood Gossip subscribes.
Finally, just last week, Bell told critics to calm down about breastfeeding because, come on, they’re just boobs.
Some lucky fetus will soon grow into some very lucky boy or girl. Congrats to the couple!
Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard: Romance Rewind, From Courting to Marriage!
19 Kids and Counting star Jill Duggar is probably up to 19 kisses (at least) with new husband Derick Dillard after tying the knot Saturday in Arkansas.
The religious couple, as you’re likely aware if you know who they are, her shared their first kiss EVER at their wedding, in accordance with their beliefs.
Much has been made of the fact that when Jill Duggar married Derick Dillard, they had never done more – physically – than hold hands. But their bond is deep.
From the moment they were introduced by her dad Jim Bob, the two felt an undeniable connection, one that only grew over Skype, and at last in person.
Here’s a look back at the duo’s magical road to the altar, including when they first heard of one another, when they first spoke, met, got engaged and more!
