There’s lots of breaking news in reality TV world.

We’re talking celebrity judges for “The Voice,” and new casts for “Dancing with the Stars” and “Celebrity Rehab.” No, Charlie Sheen’s not on that list.

The Voice’

If you’re going up against “American Idol,” you better bring your A-game.

That’s why the producers of NBC’s “The Voice” went for top-name artists to serve as the talent show’s judges.

How’d you like to have Cee Lo Green say, “F*** You” or “Forget You” to your singing?

That could happen on “The Voice,” as Green was chosen as one of the show’s new judges. This guy has some serious experience in the music biz. The singer made his mark in the Goodie Mob and Gnarls Barkley.

OK, she can’t hold her liquor — or sing the national anthem — but Christina Aguilera can hit some intense notes. That’s why she was picked to be another “Voice” judge.

Can you believe Adam Levine and Maroon 5 played CU’s 2003 WelcomeFest concert on Farrand Field?

Now the Maroon 5 frontman’s a judge on “The Voice.”

Dancing with the Stars’

The new object of celeb reality shows is to skip the talent — and head straight for the trainwrecks.

“Dancing with the Stars” had to top last season’s Bristol Palin disaster, so the show found an even quirkier cast for its March 21 return to ABC.

The new dancing crew features reality queen Kirstie Alley, former playmate Kendra Wilkinson, Ralph Macchio from “Karate Kid”, rapper Romeo, boxer Sugar Ray Leonard, ego-maniac wrestler Chris Jericho and talk show host Wendy Williams.

Oh yeah, this is going to be interesting.

Celebrity Rehab’

We know Charlie Sheen’s your first pick for VH1’s new season of “Celebrity Rehab.” However, the actor’s on his own “Tiger Blood” program, so Dr. Drew Pinsky found other celebs to rehabilitate.

The new “Celebrity Rehab” crew includes Lindsay Lohan’s dad Michael — and word is Lindsay’s not a happy camper. The other cast members include White House crasher Michaele Salehi, “Long Island Lolita” Amy Fisher, actress Bai Ling and former “Baywatch” star Jeremy Jackson.

Boring.

American Idol’

CU music student Casey Abrams is flying up the “American Idol” ranks.

Last week, the singer soared into “AI’s” top 13. Meanwhile, Denver singer Julie Zorilla got the boot.

Abrams is the last Colorado singer standing on “American Idol.”

Stay tuned.
