‘Masked Singer’ Season 2 Gets Anthony Anderson, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog as Guest Judges – “The Masked Singer” has added Anthony Anderson and Triumph the Insult Comic Dog as guest judges for Season 2 of the oddball singing competition series, a Fox spokesperson told TheWrap.

As Fox previously announced, T-Pain — who competed as The Monster on “The Masked Singer’s” first season and won — will also act as a guest judge for Season 2. – Read more at The Wrap

‘American Idol’ tryouts test patience of DC federal workers – If you enjoy hearing people randomly shout-sing ballads and practice Mariah Carey-like vocal runs, then Wednesday morning at the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington was your own personal heaven. “American Idol,” now in its 18th (!) season, held open auditions at the federal building named after a president who knew a thing or two about performance. “You need to go over and tell them to stop,” one security guard said to another. “They’re not supposed to be doing this.” Surely, the workers here hadn’t been putting up with this all morning? “They’ve been at this bul***** all day,” a visibly exasperated security guard told me. The building is home to agencies like the Commerce Department and U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Some curious tenants (agency bureaucrats, judging by their lanyards) snuck down during office hours to see what the buzz was about. – Read more at Roll Call

Har­ry Styles: the boy is back – Fol­low­ing the news that he missed out on Pres­ley, his name was float­ed for the role of Prince Eric in Disney’s live-action remake of The Lit­tle Mer­maid. How­ev­er, fans will have to wait a bit longer to see Styles on the big screen as that idea, too, has sunk.

But every­one involved in it was amaz­ing, so I think it’s going to be great. I’ll enjoy watch­ing it, I’m sure.” The new album is wrapped and the sin­gle is decid­ed upon. ?“It’s not like his last album,” his friend, rock ?‘n’ roll leg­end Ste­vie Nicks, told me recent­ly over the phone. ?“It’s not like any­thing One Direc­tion ever did. It’s pure Har­ry, as Har­ry would say. He’s made a very dif­fer­ent record and it’s spectacular.” – Read more at The Face
