Twilight's Nikki Reed Engaged to American Idol's Paul McDonald : "He's the One!"

Twilight's Nikki Reed Engaged:

by Marc Malkin

Looks like that Breaking Dawn wedding isn't the only prospective Twilight marriage on tap.

On the red carpet at the 2011 MTV Movie awards, Twilight star Nikki Reed flashed some serious bling when I asked her whether she thinks she and her man Paul McDonald will wed. And she had an answer ready.

"He's the one," she said. "He's the one."

A source confirms that the two are, indeed, engaged. Congratulations, you two. And guess what else she told me...

Reed says her man, who made it to the Top 8 of American Idol this season, has been writing a bunch of songs in her honor! Aww.

"He says he's going to release a Nikki Reed EP," she said.

Sweet. Though if things continue this way maybe we will have a whole album to look forward to.

After the American Idol Finale, Judas Priest Says, "James Durbin is our Hero"

A new heavy metal hero has emerged, thanks to an unlikely source: American Idol.

The reality series had never seen anyone like James Durbin before, as the 22-year old from Santa Cruz brought hard rock and heavy metal to the Idol stage for the first time.

Metal legends Judas Priest joined Durbin for the Idol finale, which was seen by 29.3 million viewers; USA Today reports that's a 21% increase over last year (24.2 million). The May 25 broadcast was also up 12% in young adults (18-to-49) compared to the Season 9 finale.

"It's just amazing, it really is," Priest vocalist Rob Halford tells FoxNews.com's "Fox 411" (see video below). "We've gotta say thank you to James and to American Idol for putting heavy metal music into 30 million American homes week after week. He's become a hero of ours."

James rocked Priest’s "You've Got Another Thing Coming" back in March, marking the first time a Priest tune was performed on the series, sending shock waves in the metal community and with the band themselves.

"We had no idea that [James] was covering this song by Priest,” said Halford. “All of us back in the U.K. and various locations around the world, our phones [were going off] with texts. 'Can you believe what's happening?' We were absolutely thrilled."

"James is epitomizing heavy metal, because it's the type of music that we've always had to fight for, really," added drummer Scott Travis. "So the fact that he got eliminated quicker than some people wanted him to, and he's still around and he's probably gonna have a long career. And it's the same sort of thing we've had to deal with."

Why Haley Reinhart's Original Song (Debut Single) was Cut from the American Idol Finale

While we loved seeing Haley Reinhart “Steppin’ Out” with Tony Bennett during the American Idol finale, we were more excited for our little pony’s first original song, which her parents promised we’d hear that night. But as we were treated with Beyoncé performances, Gaga-vision, and a look back at Steven Tyler-isms, we began to wonder how Idol would fit everything in.

It turns out, two hours simply isn’t enough time for Top 13 reunion songs, judges’ hip shakings, and celeb cameos. In fact, as Haley explained to The Hollywood Reporter, it was one of the uber-famous who took over the spot that was originally given to the growly girl for her new single. “That was going to happen. And then Bono came in and it was taken away,” says Haley.

Et tu, Bono? The U2 singer, along with The Edge and Reeve Carney, brought Broadway to the Idol stage (didn’t Simon Cowell always warn against that?) when they performed “Rise Above 1” from Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark. The superhero-themed musical is having myriad problems, and even J.Lo wasn’t keen on kissing the masked crusader during the finale.

Now that Haley’s original song doesn’t have the benefit of an Idol audience debut, its fate is in peril. “They had said that it was going to happen,” explains Haley, “and like everything else in this business, it’s all subject to change. I was excited about it, but then again, I think I'd like to wait and come up with something that's very me. Everything happens for a reason, so it's all good.” Way to take it in stride, Growlylocks.

American Idol finales are typically star-studded spectacles, and they always try to cram in the maximum amount of show-stopping performances, but swapping Haley’s potential hit for an established singer’s lackluster project just strikes us as bad form. What do you think? Should producers have kept or cut Haley’s original song?

A Very Confident James Durbin Says Goodbye to American Idol ~ The Curtain Call Interview

After James Durbin's shocking elimination at the American Idol Season 10 Top 4 Results Show, James gave his final 'Curtain Call' interview with Idol.

James says he "can't believe he even made it this far" in the competition. "Right now, I'm just feeling so thankful to my family, to my friends, and most importantly to my fans. I know I have some seriously hardcore fans out there, and I know that they're rioting right now. But I want them to know, it's okay. I'm okay. This is only the beginning," says James, adding, "To know what I've accomplished, and know that everything I've done on this show, that no one else has ever done. No one's pushed that bar as far as I've pushed it. I'm just really happy that I was able to bring light and give voice to a whole 'nother genre of music. Everything that I performed was my ideas. Everything. Down to what I wanted on the stage. I'm not at all disappointed in myself because I gave everything that I have, every single day, every week, in every single performance."

"I have the best fans in the world!"

Haley Reinhart Rocks “You Oughta Know” on the American Idol Top 3 Showdown

Haley Reinhart, American Idol Season 10's most versatile performer, rocks out to the Alternative Rock girl-angst anthem “You Oughta Know” by Alanis Morissette. In just one season, Haley has sung Country, Blues, 60's Rock n Roll, Soul, R&B, and now a bit of Indy/Alternative Rock. Haley's nailed songs by everyone from Patsy Kline, to Led Zeppelin, Adele, Sarah Vaughan, Elton John, Carole King, Janis Joplin and Lady Gaga, among others.

Even though Haley can sing anything, the judges made a horrible song choice for her. Not only did Haley need to change the x-rated lyrics for the PG-13 American Idol crowd, but "You Oughta Know" is not a singer's song. The rat-a-tat verses and choppy chorus in no way showcases Haley's huge vocals...nor would it showcase any singer's. The Top 3 is the time for the contestants to 'have a moment.' No singer could have a moment with this song, with it's awkward verses. Also, when "You Oughta Know" was released, people either loved or hated. Did the judges choose this to make Haley look and sound bad? After all the religious songs by other contestants, Haley would be the one to get the blame for singing an 'evil' song, not the judges who choose it. (The judges also screwed Crystal Bowersox last year with her Top 3 song. They choose "Maybe I'm Amazed" by Paul McCartney and Wings, forcing her to sing "Maybe I'm a Man" over and over, rather than change the lyrics to something even more awkward!)

But Haley loves a challenge, and she gave it her all, laying it all out in the chorus with a blast of grasp and growl ~ totally nailing it. Randy Jackson, who has been criticizing Haley for weeks, actually praised, "Those were some amazing choruses by you. I love seeing you rock out like that, in a soulful way. HALEY IS IN IT TO WIN IT!" Steven Tyler raved, "Amazing. That was so perfect. You so nailed the choruses. It was incredible. Beautiful." JLo added, "It was a really good job. The choruses, nobody can match you there, how high you can go, and how much power you can put behind your gowl. The stronger parts were the choruses."

America Idol Winner Scotty McCreery Wants to Record Duets with Lauren Alaina

Scotty McCreery Wants to Record Duets With Lauren Alaina - Taste of Country
By: Amy Sciarretto

While many wonder “Are they or aren’t they?” regarding the romantic relationship status of Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina‘s personal relationship, it’s clear that the American Idol semi-finalists have a high professional regard for one another. McCreery has said he would love to have Alaina duet with him on his debut album.

“I said, look, we’ve been together since day one, and we’re still together,” McCreery told USA Today immediately after being declared the victor. “We met the first day in Hollywood, we’ve been good friends through it all, we’ve been classmates. I just said this ain’t the end and we’re gonna keep on working. We sound good together. It’d be nice to get some duets.” The pair has experience singing together, as they teamed up twice during their season.

McCreery also threw a shout out to the loyal, dedicated fans who followed and supported him on his journey. “Country Music fans are great,” he said. “They’re loyal. I’ve got to thank them because they’re the reason I’m still here.”

Congrats again, Scotty! We are looking forward to seeing what you and Lauren Alaina have in store!

James Durbin Featuring Judas Priest at the American Idol Finale!

James-Durbin-Judas-Priest-American-Idol-10-Finale-PHOTOS.jpg (JPEG Image, 398x265 pixels)


James Durbin stole the show, again, at the America Idol Season 10 Finale. There had been much speculation over who James would perform with. Many hoped it would be Aerosmith, since Steve Tyler had made a promise at the beginning of the show that he'd sing with James, if James made it to the finals. James came close, finishing in fourth place, and Tyler said Aerosmith would be there. But, according to the rest of the band, there were "scheduling conflicts." James got the next best thing...singing with another of his Idols, Rob Halford of Judas Priest! In a stunning performance of pyrotechnic delights, James proved he should have been in the Top 2, singing Judas Priests' 1980's hits "Livin' After Midnight" and "Breakin the Law" from the album British Steel.

On a side note: James, next time you feel like raiding the Village People's closet, please don't!!

Season 10's Feisty Haley Reinhart Has "A Lot of Faith" in a Post-American Idol Career of Sultry Soul and Rock

"I'm really, really lucky to have some strong women that have powerful voices that are coming back into the scene, Haley Reinhart tells MTV News.
By Gil Kaufman, MTV


Haley Reinhart had a memorably bumpy ride on the just-completed 10th season of American Idol. She fell down during her final performance night, got dinged by judge Randy Jackson on a number of occasions in an otherwise-sunshiny season of high praise for most of the top finishers and almost had to take the stage at the last minute as a finale sub when eventual runner-up Lauren Alaina suffered a vocal-cord malady on the last performance night.

So is Haley bitter about her seesaw season or worried that her third-place finish means her sultry blues sound didn't click with America?

"I'm really, really lucky to have some strong women that have powerful voices that are coming back into the scene ... that's very inspiring, because that's what I've wanted to do for a while," she told MTV News on Tuesday, May 31st, mentioning such icons as Amy Winehouse, Corinne Bailey Rae, Grammy-winning jazz bassist Esperanza Spalding, Duffy and Janelle Monáe as her inspirations.

"All these chicks have a really, really cool, unique sound, and I'm really thankful that this is coming about, because it's the right time for me right now. It's happening, and I have so much throwback that's come along with me, and it seems like it might be a stretch to get there, but especially now with this new wave coming through, with this raw, refreshing good musicality being provided, I have really good feelings and a lot of faith."

Haley Reinhart is already looking ahead to the time after this summer's American Idols LIVE! Tour, when she hopes to put out some of the funky, R&B/Soul style of music she likes to write. "I never wrote anything with the real Rock there, so I would like to touch on that," she said, promising that her debut album will be a mix of sultry Soul and Rock.
