Idol Headlines for 10/22/12 – The Evening Edition

Jean – a singer-songwriter and producer best known for co-founding rap group the Fugees – will play a record label head on the show, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

I began to think the producers and Cee Lo were spending more time coaching him to give him an advantage. He thought that I was trying to hog most of the song. I unhappily watched our friendship morph into something we didn’t recognize anymore. All of a sudden, we were barely speaking to each other, weren’t rehearsing together and we had a really big argument at one of our final rehearsals. – Read more at The Insider
