Steven Tyler & Randy Jackson Return to American Idol

And in the “we already knew this, didn’t we?” department–Entertainment Weekly is reporting that FOX has confirmed Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson will be returning to American Idol for Season 11.

Steven signed a multi-year deal last year, and Randy’s contract isn’t up yet so, it’s pretty much a no brainer that the two aren’t going anywhere.

Chris Colfer and Darren Criss Play Dress Up in London – VIDEO

Chris Colfer and Darren Criss played “dress up” for the first time during last night’s Glee concert in London.

The “Klaine” skit-which is basically an excuse to bring the popular Glee couple, Kurt and Blaine on stage together, and explain why the heck Blaine Warbler is suddenly performing with New Directions–is definitely improved with the addition of costumes!

Paying homage to the royal family aside, it was announced today that Allison Janney would be playing Chris’s mom in his new movie, Struck By Lightning, set to begin shooting on July 11. Chris wrote the script, and will star and executive produce the film.

Stefano Langone is hard at work in Los Angeles, networking networking networking, hoping to make an album that is a cross between Stevie Wonder and John Legend. He feels he did really well on Idol, despite not being represented very well on air.

Casey Abrams kinda sorta reveals the tour concert order! He’s also considering shaving his beard again…
