We know it’s hard to focus on anything else but Justin Bieber’s smiling mug shot right now, but today’s Viggle Minute serves up two very important servings of entertainment news.

First, American Idol. Think this show’s all washed up after 13 seasons? That’s understandable but, thankfully, not the case! This year’s judges Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban, and our imaginary husband, Harry Connick, Jr — actually like each other, which makes for a much more enjoyable session of reality TV than Season 12 (no offense, Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj).


We’ve just crossed the halfway point in auditions, which means only three nights remain for you to get your annual dose of cringe-worthy karaoke as performed on national television. Then we’ll be on to Hollywood Week and its often equally cringe-worthy rounds of rejection.

Also on this evening: a very special episode of The Vampire Diaries. It’s the show’s 100th episode and to celebrate they’re...having Katherine Pierce reflect on her life from her deathbed? Sounds morbid but these are, after all, vampires we’re talking about.

So yes, even though we’re currently consumed in analyzing Justin’s mug there is life after celebrity arrest, which is good as we’re going to need a break after this latest Bieber trainwreck.
