Tina Fey, rocking maternity chic, joins parade of stars at fall TV upfronts [Pictures]

Tina Fey at TV upfronts May is that magical month in television where the small screen's brightest stars gather -- out of love and, OK, obligation -- for the fall TV "upfronts," presentations each network makes to advertisers to sell time on new and returning fall shows.

Tina Fey led the NBC pack, nothing short of glowing at around six months pregnant. In horizontal-stripe top and black blazer, Fey showed on behalf of her comedy "30 Rock."

Simon Cowell and Paula Abdult

Christina Aguilera brought some glamour in a black mini showing off "The Voice," as did Anjelica Huston and Debra Messing ("Smash") and Maria Bello marking her anticipated TV-return in "Prime Suspect" -- an adaptation of the British detective series made famous by Helen Mirren

Over at the Fox upfront, Simon Cowell -- reunited finally with Paula Abdul -- teased to his American adaptation of "The X Factor," which features Abdul and Brit darling Cheryl Cole as judges, and Matthew Morrison smiled and waved on behalf of "Glee." Rocker James Durbin, recently ousted from the "American Idol" ranks, stopped by as well.
