Wow. Britain truly does got talent.

The entire world knows about Susan Boyle by now, but a couple other contenders have emgered for this season's Britain's Got Talent title: Hollie Steel and Shaheen Jafargholi.

We can now add Jamie Pugh to that list.

Appearing visibly nervous on stage, Pugh is the male version of Boyle: he's older, normal looking and even belted out a song from Les Miserables. Listen to him sounds like a regular Jean Valjean during this rendition of "Bring Him Home."

Tragically, Pugh's wife Tracey passed away from a brain tumor 10 years ago. The aspiring singer was left to raise their young son Callum on his own.

Reportedly, Jamie refused to mention this sad fact in his original bio for Britain's Got Talent because he didn't want to receive any sympathy votes. Gotta hand it to the guy for that.

Following a decade-long battle with cancer, David Cook's brother, Adam, died yesterday.

The American Idol winner made the difficult announced this morning, prior to the Race for Hope 5K in Washington, D.C.

"I actually lost my brother yesterday to a brain tumor and I couldn't imagine being anywhere else right now," Cook told the crowd at the brain cancer research benefit, at which Cook served as the grand marshal and competitor, as his team had raised more than $40,000.

Adam Cook had battled the disease throughout Cook's American Idol run last year.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to David and his family.

Even though Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt's wedding only took place a week ago now, there's already talk of the gruesome twosome starting a family.

"Heidi wants four boys," new sister-in-law Stephanie Pratt told Us at the grand opening of Catch Boutique in L.A. "Imagine ... four Spencer Pratts!"

Yes. Imagine.

Does Spencer's sister, who was a bridesmaid in The Hills wedding event along with Holly Montag, think that Heidi Montag will make a good mom?

"Yeah, she's really good with our niece," Stephanie said, referring to Ava, the flower girl at Speidi's wedding. "They're [both] kid lovers."

Stephanie Pratt, who said she had never been to a wedding before Spencer and Heidi's Saturday nuptials, thought the ceremony was "wonderful."

"It was the most - I didn’t think they could be that beautiful," she said, adding that her absolute favorite moment of the evening was, "for me, it was walking down the aisle - which wasn’t that long of an aisle - and I felt so nervous!"

"I had to walk slow, but I was running down it and crying, with my brother laughing at me because I could not keep it together. I’ll never forget that."

Even Steph and Spencer's parents, Skip and Janet Pratt, got choked up.

"They’ve always loved Heidi," she said. "My mom was very emotional. He’s her only boy."

Truly, so touching. We can't wait to watch it unfold on The Hills' finale. Don't forget to give us your funniest Speidi jokes in our Caption Contest.

Oprah Winfrey is famous for handing out free gifts, such as a new car, to her studio audience.

But is the talk show goddess keeping a significant secret from her adoring fans?

According to the cover story in this week's National Enquirer, Oprah only has a few years to live. The unreliable* celebrity gossip tabloid claims it brought in "experts" to review Winfrey's medical history.

These anonymous sources say the star's battle with her weight is due to a faulty thyroid that will send her to an "early grave." Reportedly (i.e. not remotely accurately), she's considering surgery to have the thyroid removed.

How pissed will members of Oprah's audience be when she opens a future show with: "Everyone here is getting... a piece of my thyyyyyyyyroid!"

* As with any National Enquirer article, we must state the caveat that the publication was the first to report that John Edwards was having an affair with Rielle Hunter. (We're reminded of that story about a blind squirrel finding a nut...)

Since Chris Brown's arrest in February, his normally loquacious attorney, Mark Geragos, has said nary a word about how he plans to defend Brown against charges that he punched, choked and threatened to kill his pop star girlfriend, Rihanna.

But comments by the attorney in court Wednesday suggest part of the strategy might be attacking police for the leak of a photo of Rihanna's bruised face.

The defense lawyer told a judge he planned to request information about possible police misconduct or bias and mentioned by name an appellate court ruling that provides defendants access to files in internal police investigations.

Geragos' remarks seemed a clear reference to the probe sparked by TMZ's posting of a photo consistent with Rihanna pictures taken by police that night.

LAPD investigators have been interviewing their own officers and scouring computers for two months - so far in vain - in an effort to determine if someone inside the agency sold or gave the photo to the celebrity gossip website.

Is Chris Brown's lawyer's apparent strategy of focusing on this haunting, leaked Rihanna photo relevant to his client's defense - or a shameless, distracting ploy?

With a preliminary hearing date now set for May 28, Geragos' actions indicate he may seek to have the case thrown out over the photo at that time.

Whether he proves effective or not, the attorney's focusing on the photo's leak would most definitely compound the LAPD's embarrassment over the apparent failure to safeguard evidence in a case that has attracted world attention.

A state law makes it a misdemeanor for officers or law enforcement employees to profit by leaking confidential reports or images. Police Chief William J. Bratton promised "a very painful experience" for any LAPD employee found to be involved.

"We are still following leads and the case is far from closed," said Deputy Chief Mark Perez, head of the LAPD's Professional Standards Bureau.

In a new, wide-ranging interview with Great Britain's The Daily Mail, Miley Cyrus touches on a number of topics.

Among them: the difficulty of growing up famous, rich and with a legion of fans around the world; her hatred for celebrity gossip blogger Perez Hilton; and her plans to stay pure until marriage.

Miley Down Under

Note to Justin Gaston: if you wanna look down and see this look on Miley Cyrus, put a ring on her finger.

Here are excerpts from the article:

On being young and famous: "It's hard growing up in the spotlight and I'm changing. I can't be the 12-year-old who just moved to LA for ever. I'm having a great time doing what I do, but I'm also going to stumble and fall."

On Perez Hilton: "That's just a mean person. I don't know how old he is, but taking it out on me is a little strange. It's like going back to high school. I get to travel and go to London and Paris, while this person sits by the computer writing mean things about me. I'd rather be the one travelling."

On sex: "I want to keep my virginity until I marry and then follow the lead of Jessica Simpson, another singer that made this claim, starred on a reality show, got divorced and has slept with as many men as possible since. I was brought up in a Christian family."

Despite comments earlier this week that made it seem like she had an issue with Melissa Rycroft, Jewel wants to make one thing clear:

She hates a certain rule on Dancing with the Stars, not the lovely, former cheerleading brunette.

On Thursday, Jewel posted on husband Ty Murray's MySpace blog that she has an issue with the DWTS rule that says an injured contestant isn't instantly disqualified; but rather judged on his/her rehearsal footage.

"I like Melissa and think she's gifted (and a real Texas sweetheart), and I adore Steve-O," Jewel wrote yesterday, citing the two competitors that have benefited from this edict on season eight. "My comment had nothing to do with either of them. My comment was on a sports website about a rule I have never seen in any type of competition before."

Jewel added: "Name another sport where if you can’t compete, they use your score from practice. Can you imagine an Olympic diver who can’t compete for any reason, and so they let them use their practice dives from that day? Or a chess match, for that matter.

"This isn't a catty girl versus girl thing [the media] are trying to make it into. Neither I nor Melissa are like that."

Levi Johnston and Bristol Palin split a few months ago. That we saw coming.

What we could not have predicted was the unwed teenage baby daddy turning into a complete media slut, talking to every TV show that will take him and throwing Bristol and her mom, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, under the bus.

According to a report in the National Enquirer, Bristol Plain is getting a bit fed up with the act - and wants to keep their baby, Tripp, away from him.

"What Bristol is doing amounts to emotional blackmail," says a source close to the previously engaged couple. "She no longer wants Levi in her life and she's been threatening to have him cut out of their newborn son Tripp's life."

Levi, along with his drug-dealing mother Sherry and sister Mercede, appeared on Larry King Live on April 22 to discuss the ongoing feud they're having with the former Republican candidate for Vice President and her family.

According to a source, the escalating feud between former lovers Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston is very ... well, high school. They are just 18 and 19, after all.

"Bristol holds a grudge against Mercede because some of her friends dated Levi. The girls meant nothing to Levi, but Bristol wouldn't accept that."

"The irony is that Bristol stole Levi from her childhood best friend, Lanesia Garcia, who dated Levi for almost three years before Bristol did!"

Levi has said throughout his media tour that he is not allowed to take his 4-month-old son out of the Palin home. Both Levi and his mom confirmed to King that they've retained lawyers to help Levi battle for custody of his child.

Levi also admitted he isn't paying Bristol Palin child support, but denies he's a deadbeat dad, saying: "I have everything my boy needs back home."

Bristol is said to be stunned that Levi is fighting back publicly.

"Bristol constantly threatens Levi, telling him that if he keeps up these publicity stunts she won't let him see Tripp," said the source.

"In the end, she'll have to do to whatever a judge decides. Her mother may be governor, but Levi has a right to see his son, like it or not!"

Denise Richards has ruined an American classic.

And, for once, we aren't referring to Charlie Sheen!

Richards has proven that there's one thing she does worse than act: sing.

As part of the Chicago Cubs' tradition that asks a famous person (any famous person, apparently) to sing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" during the Seventh Inning Stretch at Wrigley Field, the former Dancing with the Stars contestant belted out a horrific version of the baseball anthem.

Note how she continually looks down at the words, as she "sings."

Seriously, Denise. Just stick to exploiting your kids for fame and money.

Octomom Nadya Suleman has been confronted by social services, cops, lawyers the media and countless critics for her antics of the past several months.

While some instant celebrities like Carrie Prejean are polarizing figures, there's simply no debate when it comes to Octomom: she's America's Most Hated.

Octomom on the Horn

Even her own mom is getting in on the action.

"How did this happen?" Angela Suleman demanded of her daughter, holding up the front page of the local newspaper featuring an article on local social services and cops visiting Nadya's house, in a video captured by Radar Online.

On Wednesday, the La Habra Police Department and Social Services of Orange County stopped by the Octo-residence to investigate a claim of neglect.

Nadya Suleman's son Kaleb, 3 - she has six kids in addition to the octuplets born in January - showed up at school with bite marks, raising red flags.

The mother-daughter - who have had a contentious relationship - bickered back and forth outside her house with Nadya cutting her off, yelling "I'm talking!"

"This is stupid," the drain on society said. "Social workers even said, 'This has been a false allegation, but thank you for being so open and transparent.'"

"My child got bitten by my two-year-old," Nadya said.

Back on tape, Octomom ranted: "CPS is on my side. Nothing happened to Kaleb. He got bitten by Aidan. He has meltdowns, he slams his face on the ground. Especially when one is autistic, they will slam themselves."

What a mess. Follow the link for Radar's video of the affair.
