TV shows boost singers to fast stardom – “The connection of television and music is phenomenal,” Siman said. “It’s here to stay and it’s something we all need to recognize and deal with.” Siman was part of a moderated discussion on how reality television, specifically singing competitions, affects the music industry. The panel also included former “American Idol” judge Paula Abdul, former “American Idol” contestant Melinda Doolittle, and Barry Adelman, executive vice president of television at Dick Clark Productions. Although recent singing competition contestants haven’t achieved successes as great as their predecessors, and an abundance of similar shows have diluted interest in them individually, reality television still is a potential star-making vehicle, panel members said Monday. – Read more at

‘DWTS’ Mark Ballas on Bristol Palin blowup: ‘At some point you fight’ – “Here’s the thing with these packages they show before our dance … they’re a minute and a half,” Ballas told reporters after the show. ”We then also had Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday which went beautifully.
