by Chris Harnick, posted Jun 22nd 2011 3:30PM
Liza MinnelliLiza Minnelli, what are you doing on the 'Today' version of 'The Voice'? A woman of your talent and celebrity should not be judging a morning show knockoff of a new hit reality show.

Nothing against Hoda and Kathie Lee -- they're awesome -- but come on. Liza's talents are needed elsewhere, like on a real reality competition.

'The Voice' has its dynamic down with Cee Lo Green, Blake Shelton, Christina Aguilera and Adam Levine coaching, but there's a long-in-the-tooth singing show that needs the spunk at judges table that Liza could provide. Yes, I'm talking about 'American Idol.'

Lauren Alaina, 'American Idol'When Lauren Alaina performed 'I Hope You Dance' by Lee Ann Womack on 'American Idol' (Wed., 8PM ET on FOX) this week, she got a critique that could only be genuine praise. And it came from Jennifer Lopez's body.

"You cannot buy those," Lopez said, stroking her arm. "Those are not for sale. Those only come out when somebody makes them come out. You gave me just goosies from head to toe."

Clearly, Lopez had an emotional connection with Lauren's song, and from it made a bold prediction that Lauren had won that round of the competition, before Haley and Scotty had even sung. It proved to be a prediction she stuck by even after the other two finalists performed.

'American Idol' airs Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8PM ET on FOX.

He offered a rose to a long-haired Megadeth member, saying sweetly, "A rose for the lady?" It was thrown back in his face.

Wearing a Justin Bieber-esque wig, he was asked by Nicki Minaj, "Do you see how crazy you look?"
