Shakira's claws come out on 'The Voice': First look at the new coach -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Screen Shot 2013-03-03 at 3.55.06 PM

The Voice may have lost one spicy Latina judge in Christina Aguilera, but newcomer Shakira seems poised to infuse season 4 with a kinder-hearted, just-feisty-enough zest. In the exclusive video below, the 36-year-old Colombian superstar gamely takes on old-timers Blake Shelton and Adam Levine (after three seasons, she promises a contestant, “They’re almost deaf!”), slyly mocks the super-casual posture of fellow new judge Usher (pictured), and even rushes the stage during blind auditions to hug a singer she wants on her team. The competition is on! And don’t worry — she isn’t above segueing into Spanish to get her point across. (Silly Blake Shelton assumes she’s referring to a very spicy dip.)

Season 4 of The Voice premieres March 25 on NBC. Watch Shakira in action below: READ FULL STORY

'90210' scoop: Latest guest performer is... -- EXCLUSIVE

You guys, the ’90s lives!

EW has learned that 90210 has enlisted rock band the Goo Goo Dolls to perform on an upcoming episode, set to air May 6. Per the storyline, the band appears after Naomi calls upon them to perform at a relief concert.

Justin Timberlake books a week with Jimmy Fallon

Timber-fans rejoice! NBC announced that Justin Timberlake has booked a whole week of appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.

Beginning March 11, the actor-producer-singer-honorary comedian will perform each night of the week. On Monday and Friday, he’ll sit down with Fallon — presumably to talk about the March 19 release of The 20/20 Experience, which just might redefine which Instagram filter we use to watch music.

Can we assume The Roots will be the backing band? Can we assume that ?uestlove will do a dreamy-smooth spin on JT’s new dreamy-smooth songs? Can we assume that there will be at least one sketch that involves Justin as the newest footman in Downton Sixbey?

We can’t assume, but we can dream.

'American Idol' Hollywood Round: What to expect

Gone are the halcyon days of American Idol auditions, in which the judges would put 50-plus people (of whom we viewers would get to meet at least… 10?) through to the next round. Tonight, the two-week “Hollywood Round” — guys this week, girls next — begins on Fox. “The minute we hit Hollywood, we go, ‘God, we’ve got 300 kids here,” executive producer Ken Warwick told EW in the midst of shooting Hollywood Round footage. “So the whole mental thing changes to ‘Who can we cut, and why?”

Below, Idol honchos Warwick and Nigel Lythgoe on what to expect. READ FULL STORY

'American Idol': New featurette offers boobs, clown costumes, and one tender Mariah Carey/Nicki Minaj moment -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Screen Shot 2013-01-15 at 2.04.44 AM

Granted, Mariah probably only looks so giddy here because a sassy male contestant has just told Nicki, “Shut yo mouth.” (Hidden gem: Randy Jackson’s hand, conjuring up this television magic.) Below, we’ve got an exclusive featurette to get you ready for American Idol‘s season 12 premiere this Wednesday and Thursday on Fox. It’s the first clip I’ve seen that shows more than just a split second of a hopeful’s crazy-good vibrato — as well as much more of the intra-judge dynamic.

We’ve also got Mariah Carey’s boobs competing with Mariah Carey’s hair for Most Volumnious in her single shot. You can’t blame her; it’s hard out there when the other diva at the table is an even bigger wig collector than you. Check it out: READ FULL STORY

Beyonce shows vulnerability and Sasha Fierce-ness in new doc trailer -- VIDEO

Make no mistake: Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter is powerful. More powerful than her mind can even digest and understand. But even so, the superstar singer sometimes feels insecure. “I’m a human being,” she reveals in this new trailer for her upcoming HBO documentary. “I cry. I get scared. I get nervous.” Say it ain’t so, Bey!

Thankfully, the trailer also proves that doc will be more than a two-hour therapy session. It looks like there’ll be plenty of behind-the-scenes footage in the film, as well as a subplot about Beyoncé struggling to keep her pregnancy under wraps while on tour. The artist’s plans for world domination may also be revealed — as Bey says at one point, “Power’s not given to you. You have to take it.”

Viva la Beyoncé, and check out the new trailer here:

'Smash': Watch Jennifer Hudson sing the new song 'I Can't Let Go' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

If you’re going to hire Jennifer Hudson to guest-star on a musical like Smash, you better have an epic ballad for the Oscar-winner to sing. Well, thankfully, the producers of the NBC series know exactly how to use Hudson’s talents. In this exclusive clip from the climax of episode 4, Hudson’s Veronica “Ronnie” Moore sings a brand new song, written by Smash‘s composers and exec producers Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, while performing at her own televised concert.

Regular viewers will recognize Derek (Jack Davenport), who directed the concert, standing in the wings; Ivy (Megan Hilty) and Karen (Katharine McPhee) singing back-up; Tom (Christian Borle) on the piano; and newcomers Jimmy (Jeremy Jordan) and Kyle (Andy Mientus), whose characters are credited with penning “I Can’t Let Go” on the episode. Also, look for a cameo in the audience by Sheryl Lee Ralph as Ronnie’s controlling mother. Watch the spectacle below… READ FULL STORY

Below, we’ve got your first look at the show’s cold open and title song in which T-Boz, a single mother to 12-year-old daughter Chase, breaks down her life since the death of Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes — a divorce, a brain tumor that robbed her of her speech, sight, hearing, and balance, and an ongoing battle with Sickle Cell — and how she plans to reinvent herself.  READ FULL STORY
