It looks like the new judging table on this year's American Idol is a real hot seat! We hear new judge Ellen Degeneres and famous mean judge Simon Cowell are not getting along at all! It all went wrong from Ellen's first day, where Simon was late arriving and much to his upset, the show started taping without him! Ever since then its been a power struggle between Simon and Ellen and we hear, when the cameras stop rolling the two are not even speaking to each other! We are guessing this is going to make for some interesting television viewing! Which team are you on? (Source: Radar)
Whose side are you on?

Oops! In case you missed it, Katy Perry was a guest judge on American Idol this past week and she was feeling no love for her fellow judge Kara Dioguardi! The two women disagreed on almost every contestant and it eventually got ugly! Kara started using lyrics from Katy's hit songs to tease her and Katy ended up threatening Kara, warning her she would throw her coke in Kara's face if she didn't stop! Meaow! Take a look:

American Idol judge Simon Cowell really knows how to create a buzz! At a press conference for the show yesterday, the British meanie had this shocker: he will be leaving the judges table after the latest season! Simon has been threatening to leave the show for years, but no one believed he actually would, because we all know how much Simon loves the spotlight! Simon announced a second surprise too, he is bringing his other hit British reality show, "X Factor" to the US next year! So we haven't seen the end of Simon yet, and rumour is Simon's old Idol judge buddy Paula Abdul will be involved in X Factor too in some way, because Simon says he misses her, aw sweet!

All this was for the launch of Katharine's new album "City of Hope". We don't really get it, do you? Anway here is Katharine singing live during Thanksgiving weekend! We do still love her voice, even though we don't always understand her style choices!

Scandalous rocker and American Idol star Adam Lambert was in full makeup and rock chic too, but someone who really surprised us on the red carpet was Nickelodeon sweetheart Miranda Cosgrove!
