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.

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.
