Ryan Seacrest to introduce 'Idol' judges Wednesday

It looks like Fox is finally (finally!) getting ready to say who exactly will be on the “American Idol” judges panel, as host Ryan Seacrest has confirmed the impending confirmation.

"Looks like I have some new plans on wed!” Seacrest tweeted. “I will be able to introduce the @AmericanIdol judges panel! We will send u a pic! Can't wait"

Neither can we, Seacrest. Neither can we.

If it all goes according to media speculation, Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler will be joining Randy Jackson for the next season of "Idol," THR points out. But, looks like we'll have to wait until Wednesday, September 22.

Casey Affleck: 'I'm Still Here' wasn't real

After all of the stewing over whether or not Casey Affleck's film of Joaquin Phoenix's unraveling, "I'm Still Here," is real or just an elaborate joke, Affleck has finally admitted that it is, in fact, a performance.

"It's a terrific performance, it's the performance of his career," Affleck told The New York Times, referring to Phoenix's oddball behavior, like that bizarre interview on "Late Show with David Letterman" in February, 2009. He was performing then, too, Affleck confirms.

But that performance was necessary to "create a space," Affleck explained, in order for people to "believe what's happening is real."

How 'Talent' winner plans to spend $1 million prize

Although some in Hollywood liken reality TV stars to other, more scantily-clad sorts of performers, Michael Grimm doesn't seem like he belongs in that category of fame-seekers.

The 30-year-old blues singer was named the winner of “America’s Got Talent” last night, triumphing over the operatic talents of 10-year-old Jackie Evancho, and he says he’s going to take the $1 million prize money and stick to his original plan: buying his grandparents a home.

From the start, Grimm – who lost almost everything in Hurricane Katrina – had hopes that entering “America’s Got Talent” would eventually help him get a house for his grandparents, who raised him.

Behind the Scenes on 'Showbiz Tonight': Why we're ignoring 'Bombshell' McGee

We "Showbiz Tonight" staffers are a pretty cool group...except when it comes to opportunistic cheaters.

There’s a new interview just out today with Michelle “Bombshell” McGee - you remember her, the much-tattooed chick who claims to have had a torrid affair with Jesse James.

Well, she’s back and she's talking smack about how she's following in Angelina Jolie’s footsteps. "Bombshell" says she feels solidarity with Angie as an alleged former cheater, so she should be able to move on and “make the world a better place” just like Angelina.

Fox commits to J.J. Abrams' 'Alcatraz' pilot

If “The Event” really was intended to be something of a substitution for “Lost” fans, it looks like the NBC show may end up getting competition.

J.J. Abrams, who created the oft-puzzling yet addictive series that concluded with much fanfare in May, has attracted Fox with a pitch for another island-based show called “Alcatraz," according to EW.

Fox has given a pilot commitment to the program, which is based on a script written by “Lost” scribe Elizabeth Sarnoff.

Details are scarce (this is J.J. Abrams we’re talking about here) but it does appear that the plot will revolve around the notorious prison in the San Francisco Bay that housed the likes of Al Capone.
