Emmys Look for the Next "Idol"

shatner.jpgWhen the Emmys broadcast in a few weeks, the stars won't just be pining to go home with a little tin statue. CNN is reporting that some will actually be belting out songs to compete in an "Emmy Idol" competition. I've got a request: How about "Smells Like Desperation?"

As awards shows continue to blend together like one giant fashion show, producers seem to be scrambling at ways to get viewers to tune in. A super-famous/super-funny host? Seen it. Great bands? We bought the albums already. Stars embarrassing themselves on national TV? Give us the time and channel. I can only hope we all bear witness to another Rob Lowe/Snow White massacre.

Kristen Bell ("Veronica Mars"), Megan Mullally ("Will and Grace"), Donald Trump and William Shatner are scheduled to belt out a few classic TV tuners. In Shatner's case, it may not be anything new -- he has been ruining classic songs for years. Viewers will be able to vote for their favorites via CBS.com or a text message.

Hopefully next year, they will just have celebs drop their pants and get the humiliation overwith. The "57th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards" will air Sunday, September 18 at 8:00 p.m. (EST) on CBS. -- Rachel Cericola
