The extended version of Mercedes' 2013 Super Bowl Commercial has been released, and does not lack for star power ... starting with Willem Dafoe.

As the Dark Lord himself, the actor offers one potential buyer the chance to have a CLA and all that goes with it. Notably walking the red carpet with Kate Upton.

Challenging Usher to a dance-off, posing for magazine covers and generally making the girls swoon? Done, done, done. So will he sell his soul for a CLA?

Not bad as Super Bowl commercials go, especially lately. It doesn't compare to the other Kate Upton Super Bowl ad for Mercedes, but really, what does.

There was very good news for Usher fans last night: the singer took to the stage at the American Music Awards.

However, there was also bad news: he kept his shirt on.

Still, the slick dancer and all-around incredible talent blew attendees away with a medley of “Numb,” “Climax,” and “Can’t Stop Won’t Stop.” Watch now:

Among other AMA acts last night:

The custody battle between Usher and ex-wife Tameka Foster may be over, but the feuding remains.

In the wake of this singer earning primary custody over the former couple's two children, Usher has come out swinging against attacks from Foster, while Tameka has defended herself as a non-gold digger.

The Voice Season 3 just got underway, but is there already a casting shake-up in the works for Season 4? According to a new report, at least, there may well be:

Usher and Shakira are replacing Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green.

Alleged insiders say Shakira and Usher would take the place of Christina and Cee Lo alongside Adam Levine and Blake Shelton at the end of the current season.

Earlier this month, Aguilera opened up to Ryan Seacrest about the show, admitting she once viewed her job as a coach on The Voice "kind of like a side project."

"[I thought], 'It'll keep me close to my son [Max, 4] in L.A. I don't have to travel," the Grammy winner said. "Then it kind of took off, and there goes my free time!"

The Voice sources say Christina will use her break from the program to focus on tours and promotional duties surrounding the release of her new album, Lotus.

Christina Aguilera's "Your Body", the first single from the upcoming record, is already out. Green, for his part, is currently working with NBC on a new show.

The rumor comes just as speculation surrounding American Idol's revolving door ends: Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban will join Randy Jackson and Mariah Carey as judges.

What do you think? Should Usher and Shakira join The Voice?

Usher finally has primary custody of his children, and he's finally opening up about his three-year battle with Tameka Foster to achieve that status.

"This will be the only time that I've ever chosen to speak about it. I've been a man of integrity throughout the entire process, which I hope my boys will understand," the singer said last night on Oprah Next Chapter. "That's the way to go. That's the way to be."

So, what did the well-sculpted artist reveal?

He wasn't prepared for marriage in 2007: "I wanted to give her the wedding that she wanted. But I wasn't quite ready. I impregnated this woman, we were in a relationship, we were in love... I was taking responsibility."

The union started to fall apart once Usher V was born: "After that, I did get a great sense of the insecurities that were there and the fact that she wasn't coping well with being in this position, being married to Usher, and all that came with that."

A judge may have ruled, but the legal battle between Usher and Tameka Foster appears to have no end in sight.

Late last month, the singer won primary custody of the two children he shares with Foster, only for his ex-wife to appeal the decision on the grounds that the judge was biased because Usher raised funds for his campaign in 2008.

And now Usher has filed a motion in response to that appeal.

In documents submitted last Wednesday, the artist urges the court to deny Foster's request because it is "an assault on the integrity of the court."

He argues that the granting of a new custody trial would create a slippery slope in which all decisions could be a reversed if an attorney contributed to a judge's campaign.

Usher alleges that Foster's legal maneuvering "constitutes a continuum of [Tameka's] vile and unsupported claims that every person who dared testify against her ... is biased and tainted."

No word from the judge regarding either filing yet, but we have a feeling we have not heard the last from either of these parties. Not by a long shot.

The legal battle between Usher and his ex-wife is far from over.

The singer won primary custody of the two children he shares with Tameka Foster last week, but sources tell TMZ the latter plans to file an appeal because she smells corruption, pointing to a fundraiser thrown in 2008 by Usher's attorney's law firm for the judge that presided over this case.

It raised $1,278.

Foster simply doesn't understand how the judge could have ruled in Usher favor, considering how frequently he is on the road. She's already interviewing attorneys for her planned appeal in fact.

The custody battle has grown exceedingly ugly as time has gone on.

Most recently, Foster accused her ex of using her stepson's death - 11-year Kile Glover died this summer following a jetski accident - to delay proceedings in his favor. She has also alleged that Usher had an affair with his nanny and that he took drugs in front of his kids.

It's been long and it's been ugly, but for Usher Raymond, it's all been worth it:

A judge has awarded the singer primary custody of the two children he shares with ex-wife Tameka Foster.

The case has gone back and forth for months, with Foster alleging that Usher was an irresponsible father who took drugs in front of his kids. Accusations of infidelity, inattentiveness and a great deal of name-calling have also been tossed around by both sides. Usher even cried once on the witness stand.

But the court has now sided with Usher and the former couple's sons will spend a majority of time with their father.

Foster will receive some custodial rights, but it's unclear at the moment just how the arrangement will work.
