With the recent announcement of Kelly Rowland‘s addition to the X-Factor (U.S.) panel, the “Kisses Down Low” singer has joined her fellow judges Simon Cowell, Paulina Rubio and Demi Lovato to begin filming footage for the talent competition’s third season.

Decked in a sharp white suit, Miguel took to the stage at the 2013 Billboard Awards show to perform a rock rendition of his Kaleidoscope Dream record, “Adorn.” The West coast native took his energy into the crowd and attempted to jump over a pit of excited fans.
Unfortunately, he fell short of his landing target and accidentally leg dropped an audience member, causing her to need the relief of an ice pack. See what everyone has been talking and creating meme’s about. I hope she’s alright…
But let’s replay that jump again:
Singer-songwriter Bruno Mars brought down the house with his riveting performance of his Unorthodox Jukebox single, “Treasure.”
To kick off the 2013 Billboard Award Show, Mars and his entire bad bust out into an energetic choreographed dance as they played their instruments, in sharp red tuxedos. Peep Bruno’s performance. We must say, he had the best performance of the night!

Peeples co-stars Kerry Washington and David Alan Grier rolled through the Wendy Williams Show on Tuesday morning.
The Scandal actress first dished on her experience at the 2013 Met Gala, playing Olivia Pope on the popular ABC series and working on the comedic movie Peeples. Grier joined in and shared his experience working with doubles and the cinematographer on the skinny dipping scene on the set of the Perry film.
But the most interesting part of their interview with Williams was when they played a round of ‘The Hot Seat’ where they were asked less than typical questions. Kerry was asked if she could change any part of her body with plastic surgery, what would it be:
