With Simon Cowell exiting American Idol after this year, Randy Jackson is set to become the face of the franchise.

So far, he's spoken out on the over exposure of the show's judges and previewed a "wild, crazy season" to come on the competition.

But what about the recent past? How would Randy compare the two men left standing to conclude season eight?

"[Adam Lambert is] a far bigger personality, probably, than [Kris Allen]. But I think they're both equally talented," Jackson told MTV. "Kris obviously won for a reason."

As for another finalist, Jackson had nothing but praise for Allison Iraheta: "She's got her record out too. I wish them all well and the best."

Randy also said he was pleased to see that season nine isn't shock full of Adam and Kris clones. Leading into Hollywood week, the aspiring singers stand on their own.

"You would have thought there would have been a lot more theatrical Adam Lambert or Kris Allen types that would have showed up for the auditions, but that's not what happened at all this time.

"Usually, whoever wins or comes in one and two, the next season of auditions, you have a lot of those kinds of people. It's almost like it was a signal to all the people at home who were like them... I think we got a very interesting, unique cast that's really only unique to this season nine."

The action, judging and horrible/incredible auditions kick off tonight. Will you be watching?!?

Darn you, Matthew McConaughey.

The affable actor, who rarely dons a shirt, actually sported a long-sleeved top earlier this week - and still made the ladies swoon as a result of the adorable message across its front.

Out for a job in Malibu Beach, McConaughey showed off a seemingly homemade sweatshirt that referenced newborn daughter Vida. Her name means "life" in Portuguese.

We hope you know how lucky you are, Camila Alves...

Vida's Dad

Forget a shout out, Matthew McConaughey gives his child a "shirt out" with this outfit. What a cool dude.

Stop us if you've heard this before:

Eva Mendes and British model Jamie Dornan are appearing together in a sexy ad campaign for Calvin Klein.

This duo got oiled up and topless for a series of posters last year - and then decided they looked so nice, they'd do it twice!

Indeed, Mendes and Dornan are at it again, upping the racy ante with their latest set of photos. They're supposedly meant to help inspire shoppers to purchase jeans. But is anyone's focus really on Eva's bottom half below?

According to source, Conan O'Brien has a message for NBC:

EFF YOU!

Appropriately, yet unfortunately, the red-headed comedian feels like the red-headed stepchild of late-night television after his network gave him The Tonight Show; thwarted any chances for success by sticking The Jay Leno Show at 10 p.m.; and then ended that experiment after five months and returned Leno to the 11:35 p.m. time slot.

No one has been jerked around this much since the last 12 guys that dated Lindsay Lohan.

Conan

As Conan weighs his options, reports say he's likely to leave for Fox. Said an insider:

"This level of shitiness was not expected. He's done a great job for NBC. He moved his entire staff, he moved his family to LA. And five months later, they repay him like this?"

Did O'Brien really expect something different from NBC? This is the same network that canceled all its original 10 p.m. programming and is actually considering yet another season of Heroes.

It has as much of a chance of finding success as The Situation has of winning an Academy Award.

Below, O'Brien hilariously recounts the rumors that have been floating around regarding he and Leno. This, folks, is why Jay doesn't hold a humorous candle to Conan...

When Nick Jonas covered a Michael Jackson classic a couple days ago, it was a welcome tribute to a late, iconic figure.

But when the young singer gave a shout-out to Taylor Swift and then performed a version of her smash "You Belong With Me" at a Philadelphia concert on Saturday, it was an unusual gesture aimed at his brother's ex-girlfriend.

Indeed, Joe Jonas famously (and immaturely) dumped Taylor in a 27-second phone call over a year ago and also slammed her in a Jonas Brothers' single.

Is Nick trying to bury the siblings' hatchet with Swift? It would serve them well to get on the good side of this successful star, that's for certain.

Watch Jonas cover Taylor below and let us know your thoughts on this rendition:

Note to Hollywood: there are two ways to tell if it's time to end a successful franchise.

  1. When it's latest edition is universally panned by critics.
  2. When there's so much drama behind the scenes of a planned follow-up that the entire script is scrapped, the director replaced and the stars given the axe.

Such is the case with Spider-Man 4, as Sony Pictures has announced a reboot to the franchise. The fourth installment in this series - very tentatively scheduled for a summer 2012 release - will bid farewell to Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst and feature Peter Parker as a high school student.

Wrote the movie studio in a supposedly optimistic statement:

"A decade ago we set out on this journey with [director[ Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire, and together we made three Spider-Man films that set a new bar for the genre. When we began, no one ever imagined that we would make history at the box office, and now we have a rare opportunity to make history once again with this franchise.

"Peter Parker as an ordinary young adult grappling with extraordinary powers has always been the foundation that has made this character so timeless and compelling for generations of fans. We're very excited about the creative possibilities that come from returning to Peter's roots."

Are you excited over this new Spider-Man 4 concept?

Or tired of Hollywood sticking to the same sequels and franchises every summer?

Breaking, almost definitely made-up news: Tila Tequila is pregnant!

In her latest stream of Tweets - which follow last night's God-based barrage - Tila claims she is taking the high road; that haters are pissing off the Almighty; and hints strongly that she has a bun in her warped oven.

Like Tina Fey impersonating Sarah Palin, the most damning, hilarious evidence of Tequila's publicity-inspired madness is simply to list her Twitter messages word-for-word. Shake your head over them (listed from latest to oldest, all within an hour) below...

Earlier today, Randy Jackson said he hopes the American Idol focus soon shifts from the judging table to the singing stage.

That may be difficult after today's announcement: Simon Cowell has confirmed that he's leaving the series after this season.

At a gathering of the country's TV critics in California, Cowell said he's bringing his popular UK show The X Factor to the United States in 2011.

“We did talk about me staying on both shows, but when we looked at the practicalities of that, it was impossible,” Cowell said. “In my opinion, it’s like having a good player and a good football team. The two have to be okay together. I believe it’s not my show, but it’s still very close to me... I’m confident [American Idol] will continue to be the No. 1 show. Everyone is committed to keeping it that way.”

The X Factor is almost identical to Idol, except that groups are allowed to enter the singing competition and there's no age limit on contestants. Leona Lewis was crowned its champion one season, launching her successful career.

Is there really room for it and Idol to air simultaneously? And, more pressingly, will you even watch American Idol without Simon Cowell as a judge?

When you're nominated for multiple Golden Globe Awards, and your show's soundtrack is among the most downloaded albums on iTunes, there's a good chance you'll remain on the air.

Still, Glee fans have an extra reason to be excited today, as the Fox sensation has been officially picked up for a second season.

"We've loved Glee ever since it was a pilot script, so it's been an incredible thrill to watch the show take root and see audiences embrace these characters in such a huge way this season," said FOX entertainment president Kevin Reilly today. "The show is a true and rare gem in television. We can't wait to see what they come up with for Season Two."

Neither can we, especially when the Glee cast is full of such cuties as Corey Monteih, Lea Michele and Dianna Agron.

The trio celebrates its good fortune at a party in honor of the Golden Globes below:

Drew Brees, you seem like a very nice guy.

City of New Orleans, you've been through a lot and deserve a celebration.

But we can't bring ourselvs to cheer on the Saints during this year's NFL postseason, not when Kim Kardashian says her marital status hangs in the balance.

Asked today on the Dallas-based radio show "Kidd Kraddick in the Morning" about prospects for a proposal, Kim pointed to Reggie Bush's on-field performance as the basis for their future as a couple.

"I would actually like him to have [a ring]," she said. "I would like for them to get to the Super Bowl and win it. Get him a ring first. That's the deal."

Can you imagine how grating an engaged Kim would be? We shutter at the thought of a new story cropping up each day about her wedding gown, her first dance song, her bridal shower...

  • Out with Friends
  • Picture of Kim

Speaking of engagements, Kim also shot down the rumor that sister Kourtney has agreed to marry Scott Disick. She said:

"I don't think Kourtney really is thinking about that. I don't think she wants that responsibility right now. She's just having a good time loving being a mom. And I think she's just going to stick with that for right now."
