Will Keith Urban remain the last judge standing on American Idol? Or will Fox replace its entire lineup for an all-new panel of judges? What exactly will happen next season?
Until Urban's fate is announced, speculation persists on who will replace Randy Jackson, who announced his departure after 12 seasons on the show, as well as the latest stars to exit, Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj.
After fun and dramatic seasons with the likes of Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Paula Abdul and the ever-so blunt Simon Cowell, the possibilities are endless about which star could energize Idol as the show competes with a growing number of singing contests, including NBC's The Voice, amid criticism and falling ratings.

Competition tightened for the top 10 on Monday's episode of The Voice, with star potential growing as singers showed off deeper range and greater confidence in their performances.
As rescuers searched for survivors of Monday afternoon's Oklahoma tornadoes, Voice host Carson Daly offered a shout out of support to all affected by the tragedy.
Oklahoma native Blake Shelton said his family is safe but that the violent, massive storm made it hard to focus on the competition.
"They are going through hell right now," Shelton said. "It's bad news. [But] I've got a job to do and the team is counting on me."

Last July when emerging R&B star Frank Ocean published an emotional letter detailing an early love affair with a man, his "coming out" story made headlines in the hip-hop world and beyond.
Now, the Grammy-nominated songwriter is being honored by GLAAD, the nation's lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender media advocacy and anti-defamation organization.
Ocean is among the 120 nominees for the 24th Annual GLAAD Media Awards, the organization announced early Wednesday morning. He is being recognized for his critically-lauded Channel Orange album.
Other musician nominees include Adam Lambert (for his album Tresspassing).

He took the world by storm as a contestant on American Idol. But does Adam Lambert have what it takes to sit on the other side of the judges' table?
Lambert, 30, is reportedly among those being considered for a judging role if Jennifer Lopez doesn't return, according to an E! Online report.
The season 8 singer, who finished as runner-up to Kris Allen in probably the biggest Idol upset ever, is one of the show's biggest stars, and has the outsize personality that would seem perfect for television.

How do you follow up a Best Actress Oscar win?
For Meryl Streep, it seems a burger will do! The actress (who won for her starring role in The Iron Lady) indulged at the Weinstein afterparty at the Mondrian Hotel, ordering Fatburger, which was being served at the bash.
Earlier in Hollywood, the stars came out for Elton John's 20th Annual Academy Awards Viewing Party – and were captivated by Streep's shocked reaction to her win (along with Octavia Spencer's emotional victory and Christopher Plummer's charming speech).
As for the host of the evening, John told PEOPLE that his party serves as a fabulous meet and greet and a chance to watch the Oscars in star company. "At the end of the day, you come away with such happy memories," he said. "I've never met Katy Perry – she's at my table tonight."

Adam Lambert and boyfriend Sauli Koskinen appear to be way past the alleged drunken bar fight that got them arrested in Helsinki last Thursday.
Right after the mishap, Lambert, 29, said he and his Finnish Big Brother winner beau, 26, were "laughing bout it," and blamed jetlag and vodka for the ordeal. And it seems the family of Lambert's significant other hasn't taken the arrest too seriously either.
"Xmas Eve with the Koskinens!" the American Idol runner-up Tweeted on Saturday along with a picture of him and Koshinen decked out in a festive hat. "Just had a huge traditional Finnish feast and now opening gifts! Merry and bright!"

Adam Lambert is chagrined by his involvement in an alleged alcohol-fueled altercation with his boyfriend, Sauli Koskinen, in Finland earlier this week, but says the reports about the incident have been exaggerated.
"Violence is not to be taken lightly. Embarrassed by drunkenness. No punches thrown, no injuries and no charges. Media always exaggerates," the singer Tweeted Thursday night.
Lambert, 29, and Koskinen, 26, were reportedly taken to jail early Thursday morning in Helsinki, where Koskinen is a reality TV star, after getting into a fight in a well-known gay club.

They were released Thursday afternoon. Koskinen then blogged about the incident, suggesting the pair had patched things up.
