Come hell or high water the bake must go on! Hurricane Sandy wreaked havoc on the East coast when it hit last October, knocking out power for millions of residents and leaving a trail of destruction in its wake. No mean feat! The Cake Boss crew carried on baking with no power in the wake of Hurricane Sandy Many people stayed home (or hunkered down in local shelters) as electric companies worked around the clock to restore power, but the crew of Cake Boss carried on baking as they pushed on regardless—and OKMagazine.com has an exclusive sneak peek of the team working in the dark! WATCH CHRISTINA AGUILERA'S MOVING PERFORMANCE OF "BEAUTIFUL" FOR HURRICANE SANDY TELETHON With a bunch of orders to fulfill—including fancy wedding and Bar Mitzvah cakes—and no electricity, telephones or internet access, it was no mean feat! No power? No problem! The team managed to make a fancy wedding cake and a huge Bar Mitzvah one! But the dedicated gang used all their creativity and improvisation skills (along with one measly power generator) to ensure no customer went unsatisfied, and the results were pretty impressive to say the least!

Show declines comment on reports Jennifer Hudson is on board; rep says take Kelly Clarkson off the list
This would be a first — an Oscar winner at the American Idol judging table. Sources have confirmed that Idol alumna Jennifer Hudson is in conversations with Fox about joining the talent show, which launched her career, next season. She may be one of several prominent Idol alums to return as judges next season, with inaugural winner Kelly Clarkson and second-place finishers Adam Lambert and Clay Aiken also in the mix. Fox entertainment president Kevin Reilly said last week that Idol will likely revert to the three-judge format next season. The show’s overhaul will likely also include the (second) departure of executive producer Nigel Lythgoe. (He first left in 2008 but was brought back two years later to usher the transition from Simon Cowell to Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler). In TV, Hudson recently recurred on NBC’s Smash.
It's out with the new and in with the old on the next season of American Idol!
Jennifer Hudson has signed a deal to return to the singing competition, this time as a judge. E! News reveals that the other seats behind the judges' table on season 13 will hold some very familiar faces.

It's pretty obvious the network is scrambling to recapture some of the audience it has lost over the past few years—the series has about 10 million viewers less than it did two years ago. But will bringing back former contestants work? And will they be able to be impartial judges considering what they went through themselves?

"The whole reason people voted for me on American Idol is because I'm an everyday, normal girl," Kelly has said.
So will she find it tough not to over-sympathize with the same sort of contestants? Time will tell, but America will always have the final word.
