Britney Spears' collab with will.i.am doesn't sound anything like any other Britney song ... something Eve attributes to the theory that it's not actually her.

Yes, "Scream & Shout" is sung by an impostor, she insinuated.

Eve & Brit

"I heard it might not be Britney," Eve told Bravo's Andy Cohen when asked what she thought of the song. "That's what I heard, but you know, I don't know."

"It could be Britney. But I heard it wasn't."

Britney Spears didn't choose will.i.am as her X Factor mentor by accident, people. Watch their just-released music video collaboration for "Scream and Shout" now!

"Walking to the stage now but I'll be back afterwards… cannot wait to hear what y'all think of the video!!!" the pop star-judge tweeted before the premiere.

The video actually isn't too crazy, though it does have a fun, futuristic kind of vibe to it ... and Britney Spears using an English accent for some reason.

She also brings back her "Britney, bitch" tagline, so that's good.

What do you think of Will and Brit's "Scream and Shout"?

"Scream and Shout," will.i.am's new upbeat, auto-tune-tastic track from his forthcoming album Willpower, featuring Britney Spears, leaked Saturday.

"When you hear this in the club, you're gonna turn this $h!t up," Brit "sings" repetitively.

The X Factor judge also refers to herself as "Britney, bitch" several times throughout:

Spears Tweeted following the track's premature leakage:

Will.i.am has made music history in the most unusual of ways.

One of his songs - appropriately called "Reach For the Stars" - was played back by NASA's Mars Curiosity rover as part of a collaboration between the national space agency and the Black Eyed Peas rapper's educational i.am.angel Foundation.

As such, it became the first song ever played from Mars!

With no speakers on the rover, however, the track was sadly not played on the red planet itself ... all the UFOs on Mars really missed out.

With rumors of Adam Lambert on American Idol making the rounds, show sources now confirm that TV's top-rated program really is looking to make wholesale changes.

It may very well replace Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson and Steven Tyler.

"No one has signed any contracts yet and producers are currently putting out feelers and setting up meetings to see who they can get," an Idol source tells E! Online, adding that the following names are under panel consideration:

  • Miley Cyrus, No Pants
  • Katy Perry Goes Retro
  • Nicki Minaj in Vogue
  • Picture of Fergie

Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, Fergie, Katy Perry and Will.I.Am.

Sounds like ideal poll fodder! Vote now and decide which of these candidate would make the best American Idol judge:

Even talented, intelligent celebrities need crib notes now and then. So does Sarah Palin for that matter. Fortunately for will.i.am, technology saved the day.

The Black Eyed Peas member almost dropped the ball during a taped performance of “Don’t Stop the Party” on the French television show Taratata.

Luckily, his phone saved the day. Sure, that's kind of weak, but it's a lot better than lip-synching or flubbing it altogether. Watch his last-minute save:

Will seemed to know this was coming, pulling it out before he was supposed to begin his part. Hard to blame him. We'd forget their inane lyrics too.

American Idol sent two contestants home last night, as it was the end of the singing line for Naima Adedapo and Thia Megia.

But the sad news for fans of those finalists was pre-empted by by a couple of entertaining performances.

First, Fantasia Barrino returned to the stage that made her famous and got the crowd on its feet for a rendition of "Collard Greens & Cornbread," giving a shout-out to Steven Tyler near the end of it. What do you think of this single? Give it a listen here:

Also, Jamie Foxx and will.i.am teamed up. They got down with a drum line and a series of dancers and introduced the world to "Hot Wings," their song off the Rio soundtrack. Check out the elaborate performance below.

"This song is about love and strength and is dedicated to our friends in Japan."

That's how Will.I.am introduced his group's rendition of "Just Can't Get Enough" last night, as The Black Eyed Peas followed Lee DeWyze and performed on the American Idol results show.

Toned down a bit from their Super Bowl spectacle, the single featured Will.I.am on the piano and Fergie in a white dress with St. Patrick's Day-themed nail polish. A nice touch. Check out their performance now:

FEMME FATALE: The cover of Britney Spears' forthcoming album.

Are you looking forward to Britney Spears' Femme Fatale album? Do you think that a collaboration with will.i.am and Britney would be worth listening to?

Or at least better than the Black Eyed Peas Super Bowl halftime show?

Discuss.
