shania twain getty Shania Twain a J. Lo alternate?, Jordin Sparks on Broadway, Kellie Pickler's wedding plansYour daily dose of “American Idol” news, served up in sample-sized bites:

With Jennifer Lopez supposedly out of the running to be an “Idol” judge next season, the next name getting tossed in the rumor mill is Shania Twain. You’ll recall she was a guest judge during the audition phase last season and later served as a mentor for the top six. [TMZ]

Jordin Sparks makes her Broadway debut in “In the Heights” next week, and she gives a backstage tour of the Richard Rodgers Theater where she’ll be performing. [Broadway World]

Kellie Pickler‘s wedding plans include no dancing at the reception — because when husband-to-be Kyle Jacobs dances, he “just sways back and forth and snaps his finger[s].” The couple also plans to have their pets at the ceremony. [People]

Season 7 “Idol” semifinalist Asia’h Epperson was arrested earlier this week after a bathroom fight at an L.A. club. Epperson says she was the one who was attacked — and oh by the way, she’s working on an album. [TMZ]

Season 8 winner Kris Allen‘s wife, Katy, is stepping into the spotlight as star of “The Bloodstone Diaries,” a web series whose producers hope to get a shot at adapting it for television. [KARK-TV]
