This is for AI fans here in the Philippines. Many awaits and is wondering on when will American Idol Season 8 be aired in TV. Well, on my thorough research I've seen this and I'm glad to share it to you guys...

this is from

Here's a reason to mark January 14 on your calendar: our favorite talent search, American Idol, returns to TV via Q Channel 11!

New year means change, and for AI, we are definitely in for major changes as the loud, opinionated trio of Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, and Randy Jackson welcomes a new judge: record producer Kara DioGuardi, who is apparently more like Simon than Paula. If Simon always gave the deciding vote before, who would call the shots this season?

Hollywood round will be extended into two solid weeks that will let us into more group numbers.

Season 8 will also see us scrutinizing more contenders for the title as the show gets Top 36 instead of the usual 24 in the semifinals round. From the Top 36, judges will choose Top 12 after just one round of performances.

And if you enjoyed watching the Idols play their own instruments last season, you can look forward to that again as AI executives chose to retain that innovation from last year.

So get ready to start the Idol madness this month! Q-11 will air the four-hour, two-part premiere on January 14 and 15.

5pm or 6pm sa QTV ang airing nito..

Thanks to you buddy... :)

LOS ANGELES – Holy People's Choice Awards, Batman!

"The Dark Knight" soared away with every trophy it was nominated for Wednesday at the 35th annual fan-favorite CBS ceremony. The caped crusader flick won five awards, including favorite cast, superhero, action movie and on-screen matchup for Christian Bale's Batman and the late Heath Ledger's Joker.

"On behalf of all of the cast from the movie, thank you very much to the fans," said Bale. "Here's to Heath."

The CBS ceremony was hosted by Queen Latifah and returned to the Shrine Auditorium for its typical star-studded live show format, following last year's writer's strike-friendly, pre-taped program. Stars such as Adam Sandler, Kate Hudson, Robin Williams, Hugh Laurie and Reese Witherspoon showed up to accept their awards at the slightly subdued ceremony.

"It's such a great way to start the new year," Witherspoon, the "Four Christmases" star who won an Oscar in 2005 for portaying June Carter Cash in "Walk the Line," said as she accepted her award for favorite female movie star. "A couple years ago, I won a great award for singing in a movie. This year, I won an award for having a baby throw up on me."

Other recipients selected by Internet voters in categories spanning movies, television and music included "Dancing With the Stars" as favorite reality show, Carrie Underwood as favorite female singer, "House" as favorite TV drama, Brad Pitt as favorite leading man, Angelina Jolie as favorite female action star and Ellen DeGeneres as favorite talk show host.

"I wish I could share this with you," DeGeneres told the audience while clutching her trophy on stage. "I could throw it on the ground and smash it into a million pieces, and give each one of you a little piece of it, but that's violent, and that's probably why you voted for me, because I'm not violent."

Other winners were "WALL-E" for best family movie, "27 Dresses" for best comedy and "The Secret Life of Bees" for best independent movie.

Will Smith was named both the top male action star and best male movie star; Kate Hudson was declared the best leading lady. The best TV comedy was "Two and a Half Men" and the top TV animated comedy was "The Simpsons."

Queen Latifah accepted the favorite drama and independent movie awards alongside her "The Secret Life of Bees" co-star Dakota Fanning. The overly enthusiastic host opened the show by wading through the audience and asking celebrities if they could keep entertaining the masses in 2009. All mimicked President-elect Barack Obama and by answering: "Yes we can."


CBS is a division of CBS Corp.
