Kutcher brings a youthful fan base to the CBS show, as well as a big online profile with 6.7 million Twitter followers, which could help CBS promote the show. “Chuck’s really happy,” another source says.

Paula Abdul Joins Simon Cowell on THE X FACTOR as Judge Panel

Paula AbdulOn Sunday, May 8, 2011 Fox.com reported that America’s sweetheart, world-renowned choreographer and pop icon Paula Abdul will join Cheryl Cole, Antonio “L.A.” Reid and Simon Cowell as a judge on THE X FACTOR, the highly anticipated singing competition series debuting this fall. Abdul, who sat alongside Cowell for eight seasons as a judge on AMERICAN IDOL, has worldwide album sales exceeding 50 million records, two No. 1 albums, six No. 1 singles, a Grammy Award, seven MTV Awards, two Emmy Awards, two People’s Choice Awards and two Kids’ Choice Awards. Abdul will join Cole, Cowell, and Reid as they travel to THE X FACTOR audition cities searching for the next global superstar or breakout music group.


“This show would never have been the same without Paula and I can’t believe I am saying this – I have missed her a lot, and I am thrilled she’s on the show,” said Simon Cowell.

“I am excited beyond words to be a part of THE X FACTOR. I couldn’t be happier to bring my love for cultivating talent and performance to such a wildly anticipated show,” said Paula Abdul. “I’m looking forward to being back with the FOX family and know that it will be an extraordinary journey — we’re going to have a blast. I’m also delighted and grateful to be sitting next to Simon again…but you might want to check back with me in a week or two!”

“Paula is not only the lovely, nurturing person that America fell in love with, but she’s also one of the fiercest competitors I’ve ever seen — which makes her a perfect fit to judge THE X FACTOR,” said Mike Darnell, President of Alternative Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company. “Paula and Simon have undeniable chemistry, and together with L.A. Reid and Cheryl Cole, I think we’ve put together an incredibly entertaining judges’ panel.”

“I’m thrilled to be working with Paula again,” says executive producer Cecile Frot-Coutaz. “A consummate entertainer in her own right, she has an extraordinary talent and generosity for nurturing performers — and her chemistry with Simon Cowell is like no other. I especially look forward to seeing her signature sensibilities in action during our mentoring rounds!”

Auditions have been held in Los Angeles, Miami, Newark, Seattle and Chicago. Dallas auditions take place on May 26. In addition to the open auditions, THE X FACTOR has audition booths in six more cities open through May 8.

During the open auditions, The X Factor Hotline (1-855-345-5678) will be updated with relevant audition details.


About Paula Abdul:
Paula Julie Abdul (play /ˈæbdl/; born June 19, 1962)[2] is an American recording artist, dancer,choreographer, actress and television personality.

In the 1980s, Abdul rose from cheerleader for the Los Angeles Lakers to highly sought-after choreographer at the height of the music video era before scoring a string of pop music-R&B hits in the late-1980s and early-1990s. Her six number one singles on the Billboard Hot 100 tie her for fifth among the female solo performers who have reached #1 there.[3] She won a Grammy for “Best Music Video – Short Form” for “Opposites Attract” and twice won the “Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Choreography“.

After her initial period of success, she suffered a series of setbacks in her professional and personal life, until she found renewed fame and success in the 2000s as a judge on the television series, American Idol, for eight years, before departing from the show. Abdul had moved on to another television series, CBS‘s Live to Dance, which debuted in January 2011. The series has since been canceled. Following her judging role in Live to Dance, Abdul moved to theAmerican version of The X Factor with her former American Idol co-judge Simon Cowell which will premiere in September 2011.[4] She is said to be working on a new album.[5][6]

hrtsnewsmakersThe Hitmakers Cable Reality, part of the Newsmaker Luncheon Series, was presented by The Hollywood Radio & Television Society (HRTS) on Wednesday, April 21, 2010 from 11: am to 2pm at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA.

First, all the celebrities lined up in front of the step and repeat banner. They were able to get interviewed and photographed by various media/press outlets. Later, they networked with each other. The industry panelists were Thom Beers (Deadliest Catch, Ice Road Truckers), Mark Cronin (The Surreal Life, Rock of Love), Jason Goldberg (Punk’d), Randy Jackson (Randy Jackson Presents: America’s Best Dance Crew and judge from American Idol), Graig Piligian (Ghost Hunters, The Ultimate Fighter) and Sally Ann Salsano (Jersey Shore, Tool Academy). The event was moderated by Chris Harrison, TV host of The Bachelor & The Bachelorette.

The panelists discussed the differences in working for the networks versus the Cable industry. They stated that when you work for cable, you are able to be more creative versus at the networks where you do not have the freedom that cable provides to them as producers. By working for the networks you need to follow their rules and guidelines. A couple of hundred people who are members of HRTS attended the luncheon and panelist event . (See and listen to exclusive unscripted video from the panelist talking about the networks and cable).

Liberty Counsel files complaint with the FCC for indecent acts of Adam Lambert against ABC

November 27, 2009 by  
Filed under Featured, News

adamWashington, D.C. – On November 24, 2009 Liberty Counsel (www.LC.org) posted a press release on their site stating the has filed a complaint with the Federal Communications Commission against the American Broadcasting Company (“ABC”) for airing an outrageously lewd and filthy performance by Adam Lambert on November 22, 2009 during the 2009 American Music Awards. Among other things, Lambert simulated oral sex, simulated digital penetration, simulated sadomasochistic conduct and engaged in homosexual open-mouth kissing.

Prior to going on-air, Lambert explained that his motive went beyond performing. According to the Associated Press, Lambert “wanted to break down a double standard that existed where female performers are often sexually provocative while men don’t do it that often.”

ABC’s reaction was to promote Lambert’s indecent acts. While the network edited portions of another performer’s number for the West Coast’s viewing, only one small portion of Lambert’s performance was removed. ABC actually teased and touted the rest of his actions as “what everyone will be talking about tomorrow.” This shows that it was Lambert’s obscene sexual conduct, not his vocal performance that ABC used to promote its show.

Anita L. Staver, President of Liberty Counsel, remarked: “The performance by Adam Lambert clearly crossed the line. ABC should be held accountable for airing this indecent and offensive performance. ABC promoted Lambert’s performance to boost its ratings. Now ABC should have to pay a hefty penalty to the FCC for assaulting its viewers with a debased performance by Adam Lambert.”

Those wishing to contact ABC about this decision can write to ABC, Inc., 500 S. Buena Vista Street, Burbank, CA 91521. ABC can also be reached by calling (818) 460-7477, or you may contact ABC on the web at Audience Relations Department.

Editor Note: Adam Lambert music sounds great, may be he should have not done the performance on ABC TV network because he is not establish yet. Here is Adam’s music link: http://www.ilike.com/artist/Adam+Lambert/photo/578669814?set=322636
