Katy Perry Tries and Fails to Sing as High as Mariah Carey on American Idol
Katy Perry can do a lot of things, but she cannot sing like Mariah Carey.
In this exclusive clip from tonight’s episode of American Idol, a contestant reveals to judges Perry, Luke Bryan, and Lionel Ritchie that her inspiration is former Idol judge Mariah Carey, and that she has even taught herself to sing in “whistle tones,” that absurdly high register that Carey is both fond of and good at.
The men are confused as to what “whistle tone” means, so the contestant encourages Perry to show them. It does not go well.
“I can’t do whistle tone,” Perry admits after a bit of extremely high-pitched screeching.
The contestant, however, can do whistle tones, and the judges are pretty stunned when she shows off her skills. We don’t yet know if she can do regular tone or if she gets her ticket to Hollywood, but something tells us the answer is “probably.”
Perry has already made quite the splash as a judge of ABC’s American Idol revival, and we’re only two weeks in. She connected with a contestant through use of the word “wig,” and then caused a bit of controversy by giving another singer his first kiss. What might she do next?! There’s practically an entire season left to find out.
Teen Mom‘s Briana DeJesus Shows Off Body Transformation After Plastic Surgery
A little more than two weeks after going under the knife with Dr. Michael Salzhauer, aka Dr. Miami, Teen Mom star Briana DeJesus is showing off some of the results of her “mommy makeover” seven months after giving birth to her second child.
Earlier in the month, Dr. Miami told E! News that he’d given his patient a tummy tuck, a breast lift and reshaped and contoured her butt.
The MTV star posted a series of photos of her body on her Twitter with the caption, “18 days post op! Progress!!!! Can’t wait to hit the gym next month!”
On one image, the reality star wrote, “No more big butt.” On another photo she wrote, “No more big boobs either.”
Briana later went on her Instagram Stories to document her recovery with two images of her body. “Ew lol can’t wait for all the blood to wash off and dead skin to fall,” she wrote with a picture of her stomach. “New belly button who dis.”
After the procedure, the doc told E! News, “I did a tummy tuck, a breast lift with an implant exchange because she did have implants from before—she wanted to be smaller, higher and perkier—so we changed her implants out for smaller ones.”
He explained, “And we also did some contouring and reshaping of her booty, of her shape overall. We did that, I think it was a week ago Monday.”
According to Dr. Miami, his famous patient “did great” and knew what to expect after going through surgery with his office staff years ago.
“I am happy that she’s sharing her journey with the world because there are a lot of moms that want mommy makeovers and they’re scared,” the plastic surgeon shared. “Seeing somebody that they know, even if it’s through social media, go through it is helpful as far as educating people about it.”
The decision to make the big change shouldn’t be a surprise to fans because the reality star has been candid about wanting to undergo an extreme makeover. She’s even said that her split with boyfriend Javi Marroquin was partly because he didn’t support her plastic surgery decision.

This Is Us scores TV’s biggest post-Super Bowl rating in 6 years
The Super Bowl itself might have been relatively disappointing in the ratings. But NBC’s special episode of This Is Us definitely scored in the Nielsens.
Early numbers mark the weepy NBC drama as the most-watched post-Super Bowl entertainment telecast in six years — and that’s despite the big game delivering its lowest rating in eight years.
The overnights (a 16.2 rating in the metered-market households) were up 59 percent from last year’s disappointing premiere of Fox’s 24: Legacy.
And naturally, this marks an all-time high for This Is Us as well. The full audience number is still to come later today.
For more, EW has some exclusive This Is Us coverage for you: Here’s Milo Ventimiglia interviewed about this pivotal episode for Jack.
Khloe Kardashian Reveals Her Pregnancy to Family in New ‘KUWTK’ Promo
The big reveal! Fans get a glimpse of Khloe Kardashian telling her family she is pregnant in a new Keeping Up With the Kardashians promo for an upcoming two-part episode about the “big news.”
“When it comes to making announcements, the family’s got news so big … we need Sunday and Monday just to cover it,” the voiceover in the promo said. The Revenge Body host then walks into a backyard to seemingly tell her family and friends, including Kris Jenner, Kourtney Kardashian, Kim Kardashian, Scott Disick, Corey Gamble and Malika Haqq that she is expecting her first child with boyfriend Tristan Thompson. It appears that she tells pregnant sister Kylie Jenner over FaceTime.
As previously reported, the 33-year-old reality star publicly confirmed her pregnancy in December via Instagram. Us Weekly exclusively revealed back in September that Kardashian is going to be a mom.
Something else fans can look forward to seeing on the E! show? Kardashian finding out whether she is having a girl or a boy. The Good American denim designer took to Twitter on Wednesday, January 3, to confirm that she will announce the sex of her baby on KUWTK. When a fan asked if the gender reveal will appear on the January 7 episode, Kardashian replied: “We will be revealing on the show but not this week .”
Revealed in October was that Kardashian is pregnant with a boy.
Kardashian opened up about filming her pregnancy reveal during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday, January 5.
“[Tristan] was out of the country, and we wanted to tell everyone together,” Kardashian said at the time. “It’s actually all caught on Keeping Up, which I’m excited about. [The crew] get to see what I was going through without them knowing … I’ve known these people since 2007. They’ve been involved in so much of the best and the worst of our lives. And they keep quiet.”
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians two-night event airs on E! Sunday, January 14, and Monday, January 15, at 9 p.m. ET.
Mama June Returns With a New Man, Medical Emergency and a Return to Pageants in From Not to Hot Season 2
Mama June is back, and she’s bringing the Entertainment and drama with new love, a medical emergency, a new baby and a return to pageants.
This season on Mama June: From Not to Hot, the tables are turned on June when Alana begins coaching her for a pageant. The family got their start on reality TV when June coached Alana on Toddlers & Tiaras, TLC’s series about child beauty pageants. This got them their spinoff, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. But that’s not the only change for June, who dropped 300-pounds in the first season: Love is in the air. There’s a mystery man in June’s life, but her past isn’t far behind. Sugar Bear and Jennifer are back and very much want to be involved in Alana’s life.
Then there’s Lauryn, aka Pumpkin, and her unexpected pregnancy. In a press release, WE tv said the pregnancy “forces her and boyfriend Josh to grow up and take on adult responsibilities,” however, “that doesn’t stop June and Pumpkin from butting heads as less than mature Josh moves in.”
With stress coming from all sides, this might be too much for June to handle. See the first trailer for the new season above and start speculating on who Mama June’s new beau is!
Mama June: From Hot to Not returns Friday, Jan. 12 at 9 p.m. on WE tv.
‘A Very Kardashian Holiday’ Recap: Kris Jenner Says Kids’ Pregnancies Are a ‘Faucet’ That Can’t Be Turned Off
Latest in Entertainment TV Kris Jenner is the reason for the season! The ever-expanding family of reality faves took time out of their busy schedules to film an early holiday special for our viewing pleasure. How generous!
The hour-long special, likely filmed sometime around October due to scenes from Kim Kardashian‘s appearance on Jennifer Lopez‘s October 14 Puerto Rico telethon, featured a rare cameo from a seemingly pregnant Kylie Jenner. Considering the timing, the episode was certainly chock-full of still-unconfirmed pregnancy hints.
The episode kicked off with Kris shopping for Christmas decorations with daughters Kim and Kourtney Kardashian. In the first of a series of clues about Kylie’s pregnancy, Kris Skyped with her youngest daughter and offered to buy her “pink balls” as ornaments for her tree. Kylie, reportedly is having a girl, has used the feminine color several times as a way to tease her fans about her pregnancy news.
In keeping with the pink theme for Kylie, Kris then showcased a pink Christmas doll and explained to Kim and Kourtney, “That’s what I’m getting for Kylie.” Kourtney then pulled out the sass, telling her mom, “Why do you kiss Kylie’s ass? Is it because she makes you a lot of money?” Savage!
Later in the episode, Khloé Kardashian entered into a heated baking competition with her mom. Khloé, who also was likely pregnant during the filming of the special, showed no hint of a baby bump in spite of several full body shots. The mother-to-be did manage to don a strategically placed apron accessorized with a pair of pearls and red lipstick while cooking, naturally.
During the final taste test of the baking competition, the drama of discovering a winner came to a screeching halt when an unseen Kylie made a non-speaking cameo from the other room. While Kylie was never seen or heard in the moment, it was clear the Lip Kit mogul was hiding as Kim shouted at her not to interrupt their bake-off. Kim explained, “She’s talking to us.” Kourtney then shouted, “Kylie can talk. This is a household.” After that bizarre exchange, Khloé emerged the winner.
Kim Insists on Inviting the Hiltons to Kris’ Party
The special also featured a fascinating moment as Khloé, Kim and Kourtney helped Kris plan her infamous annual Christmas Eve party. In a star-studded name-dropping session, with some names bleeped out for privacy, the family strategically decided who was in or out for the bash. Notable guest names mentioned were Travis Barker, “Mr. and Mrs. Tom Hanks,” Cindy Crawford, Joan Collins and Toni Braxton. When it came time for the gang to decide on the Hiltons, Kim insisted “Yes. It’s just fun.”
The episode concluded with a family dinner that featured another cameo from Kylie. When it came time for her to say what she was thankful for, Kylie emotionally revealed, “I’m thankful for my mom, because I don’t know what I would do without you. You’re like my favorite person on the planet.” Later, in a confessional, Kylie wore a baggy men’s dress shirt and talked about loving her mother’s Christmas rituals saying, “I just can’t wait to keep doing those traditions.”
Kris Drops a Big Hint About Khloé and Kylie’s Pregnancies
When it came time for Kris to confess what she’s thankful for, the momager took the opportunity to hint at the onslaught of pregnancies in her family. Kris tearfully admitted, “I used to pray that one of you guys would have a baby and now it’s like a faucet that we turned on that won’t turn off.” She continued, “The fact that I have all these grandchildren. It’s been the most amazing journey to watch your kids — because it’s truly the meaning of just life.” Considering Kim has confirmed her surrogate will soon be giving birth, along with Kylie and Khloé’s as-yet-unconfirmed but widely reported pregnancies, Kris is set for a very jolly 2018!
The episode concluded with a group photo of the family with ice skating legend Nancy Kerrigan as the Olympian stopped by for a post-dinner backyard ice skating session. Noticeably absent from filming was Kylie, who was not filmed standing up at any point in the episode.

The following week, the reunion continues with Kelly and Meghan King Edmonds revive their messy text message feud. Meanwhile, Peggy air her grievances to Shannon, while an unexpected turn of events leaves everyone in a state of total shock.
