R. Kelly’s Music No Longer Allowed On ‘The Voice’ And ‘American Idol’ – As you may know, ever since the six-part docuseries Surviving R. Kelly, aired on Lifetime, many celebrities have been denouncing the disgraced man and that includes people like Lady Gaga who chose to take her collab song with him off all streaming services! In a similar manner, The Voice and American Idol have also gotten all his songs basically blacklisted from the competitions, one insider tells HollywoodLife. ‘Producers are now actively making sure that songs that were performed by R. Kelly will not be a part of the show anymore in any way. A lot of times, ‘I Believe I Can Fly’ has been an option and staple for performers to sing in auditions, and on the show itself, or his songs have been used as background for a vignette, but that is not going to be the case anymore,’ the source shared. – The source is a gossip rag, so who knows…it’s not as if R Kelly has been covered on singing shows all that much in recent years. – CelebrityInsider.org

The two teenagers made it to the top 3 of the audition stage but were ultimately bested by Spain’s Got Talent champion Cristina Ramos, who edged out Farmer and Hadwin, both 14, with votes from the Midwest region. “It’s insane how good she is,” Farmer tells PEOPLE of Ramos, who blew audiences away with her unique rendition of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody.” On losing the chance to be named the world’s best, Farmer says, “I’m just taking it step-by-step,” adding that she’s returned to being a student at her local public school. “I’m working on new music, which is really cool! It’s going to be my own style. I want my own personal songs to not be based on someone else’s voice, I want it to be my voice and my kind of style,” says the U.K. native, who signed with Cowell’s record label after becoming a finalist on AGT season 13. – Courtney and Darci have a chance to come back via a wildcard which will be determined on a future episode. – Read more at People.com
