Lauren Alaina and her boyfriend Alex Hopkins have been together for quite a long time. She started dating him about a year after America Idol aired with Lauren and Scotty McCreery back in 2011. A 6-year relationship is quite a while. So, of course, they have been asked by family, friends, fans and the media about when they are going to make it official, even though they are both only 23.

She says “We’ve definitely talked about marriage, obviously. It’s bound to come up at some point [but] we’re pretty young. My parent’s got married really young and that didn’t work out, [More]

Remember when Jason Aldean’s wife, Brittany, was on American Idol?

  • 8:06 pm Tuesday, May 8th, 2018 by Staff Writer

Talk about a throwback… this was over 6 years ago! A lot of people don’t even know that Brittany Aldean was on American Idol back in 2012. She auditioned in front of Steven Tyler, J-Lo, and Randy Jackson. Jennifer Lopez wasn’t sold but Steven Tyler couldn’t get over how pretty she was… so Brittany Aldean (Kerr back in the day) went to Hollywood. For season 11, of the 301 that went to Hollywood only 98 went to the final round and Brittany wasn’t one of them.

  • 8:25 am Friday, April 27th, 2018 by Staff Writer

With American Idol back this year, it’s been very interesting to see the comparisons going on between it, and The Voice which has had a very successful track record.

Unfortunately, it looks like American Idol has hit an all-time ratings low, while of course we were mostly rooting for it to do well as country superstar Luke Bryan is a judge – alongside Katy Perry and Lionel Richie.

But – Blake Shelton, alongside coaches Adam Levine, Alicia Keys and Kelly Clarkson seem to only be thriving. It seems singing competition show fans are still favoriting The Voice despite the American Idol [More]

  • 7:17 am Tuesday, April 24th, 2018 by Staff Writer

Blake Shelton has responded to Luke Bryan’s offer to officiate his and Gwen Stefani’s wedding if they ever tie the knot. “Luke’s not even a legitimate country artist, much less like somebody that can marry people, you know what I’m saying,” Shelton jokingly tells Entertainment Tonight.

ouch… HAHA

If you have seen The Voice, then you know how ruthless those judges are when it comes to the competition… So we can only assume that that is how Blake Shelton would be to Luke Bryan as the two go head to head during the weekly primetime hour when The Voice and American Idol air at the same time on the same day. But actually, its the exact opposite. Blake Shelton (at least behind the camera’s and publicity) he is just a supportive, great friend.
