Dancing with the Stars Cast Party & American Idol Judge News

Hi everybody and Shana Tova to our Jewish friends as Rosh Hashanah begins tonight.

If you’re thinking Rosh Hashanah came early this year it did, in fact it hasn’t been this early since 1899.


What do Jim Nye the Science Guy and Skokie from JerseyShore have in common?  Well not a lot before today, but it’s been announced they will both are among the dancers performing on season 17 of “Dancing with the Stars”.  Other notable names you can look for include 74 year old Valerie Harper who played Rhoda back in the “Mary Tyler Moore Show” days.


Yesterday we told you news about the new line up for “American Idol” with Harry Connick Jr. joining Keith Urban and J-Lo and now that team has been confirmed. Today more scoop on the new season. We’ve learned Jennifer Lopez will be making less than Mariah Carey did when she was a judge on the show. Carey scored the largest Idol salary at $18 million.  J-lo comes in right behind her 17.5 million for the upcoming season.


According to a new poll conducted by “60 Minutes” and “Vanity Fair”, Princess Diana is the celebrity we’d most like to bring back, followed by Steve Jobs.

That’s your Party News Blast.  I’m Mary Collins.
