Go get your mini-fridge out because tonight is a big night for Reality TV, starting at 8pm!
American Idol is finished with auditions and tonight starts the Hollywood Round with 164 contestants....and for the first time the contestants will be allowed to play musical instruments! They judges will then narrow the group down to 50 and eventually down to 24, 12 males and 12 females which will air on Wednesday the 13th.
But wait! You better get your TiVo out because American Idol will overlap the premier of the first ever Big Brother Winter Edition, which starts at 9pm! The new title for this season is "Til Death Do You Part" From what I hear, "all 16 players are single, but the wrinkle in the game this season is that when they enter the house, each will be paired with a "soul mate." Whether they end up liking one another or not, their fate in the house will be tied to their partner".
"Each pair will also live together as a couple -- which means, per CBS, that they will "sleep in the same bed, hold Head of Household as a couple, be nominated for eviction as a pair, and if the time comes, say their goodbyes together upon eviction."
Big Brother will be on three nights a week, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Sundays.
Check it out!
