"American Idol" cancelled and NeYo, Alicia Keys, and Lenny Kravitz join new season of "Empire"
The big news today is that FOX has cancelled "American Idol" after 15 seasons. The show will air its finale on May 2016. Many were surprised by this news only because the cancellation of "American Idol" has been long overdue. Speaking of FOX, they had their Upfront today which is when the network announces their new shows, returning shows, and the stars of the various shows. FOX's #1 new show "Empire" was of course the talk of the town as the cast showed up minus Terrance Howard. I wonder why he wasn't in attendance? Anyway Brandy and Jennifer Hudson joined the cast. And with that being said its been announced that NeYo, Lenny Kravitz, and Alicia Keys will guest star on the new season of the show. There have been other names tossed around as well but I guess we will see when the show premieres. I'm not sure when the new season starts but I do hope its before January. I did read that the new season will feature 18 episodes. The first season contained 12. But I'm surprised FOX ain't order more episodes than that. They should of ordered 24 episodes, making it a true full season but what do I know? Are you all looking forward to the new season of "Empire" and isn't about that "American Idol" was cancelled? In other music news, DJ Khaled has left Cash Money. This comes right on the heels of Bow Wow's departure from Cash Money as well. I don't know about you all, but I don't think Young Thug can save the sinking ship that is Cash Money. Though Cash Money is still making money thanks to Drake and Nicki Minaj but it could be better off if they weren't holding Lil' Wayne's album in limbo.
