The surly Simon Cowell may not have been personally on hand at L.A.'s Nokia theater Sunday night, but the American Idol judge would have been proud of a pair of his proteges at the 35th Annual American Music Awards.

Straight off her three wins at the Country Music Association Awards earlier this month, Carrie Underwood picked up three more trophies last night.

"This is one heck of a night," she gushed, looking genuinely happy (and not to mention gorgeous) accepting the award for favorite country album.

She also won favorite country female artist and an audience text-in award for favorite artist. And, ever the Southern belle, Carrie Underwood was overheard saying "holy cow" as her name was read for the second time.

Chris Daughtry, another nominated American Idol, joined his eponymous band, Daughtry, at the podium three times as it won favorite pop-rock album for Daughtry, as well as breakthrough artist and adult contemporary artist.

"Wow. I can't believe we're in the category with Justin Timberlake and Linkin Park. It's pretty awesome," Chris Daughtry said.

Carrie Underwood: A big winner once again. 

Some of night's other winners included Akon (soul/R&B male), Rihanna (soul/R&B female), and Justin Timberlake (pop/rock male and soul/R&B album), who accepted his awards via satellite from Australia, where he is on tour.

While host Jimmy Kimmel's dancing and ad-libbing left a lot to be desired, the performance by Chris Brown and his dancers to "Kiss Kiss" - a literal high-wire act with hip-hop versions of Tron-style suits - left many speechless.

Likewise, Beyonce (another winner on the evening) and Sugarland's countrified version of her smash hit "Irreplaceable" had the crowd on its feet.

On a serious and sad note, Usher, Kid Rock and Rihanna took time to send their condolences Kanye West, who is grieving over the loss of his mother, Donda West, whose funeral is set for Tuesday in Oklahoma City.

It's been so long since we had a good James Rousseau sighting. But it looks like the model and his thin, but happy girlfriend haven't skipped a romantic beat.

Kate Bosworth sticks close to her beau after a dinner at downtown New York hot spot The Waverly Inn Thursday night. Earlier in the week, the Boz and James Rousseau stepped out together for a night of fun and romance in London.

An L.A. County Superior Court judge has issued a warrant for the arrest of Jan Adams, who didn't show up for a hearing today, reports TMZ.

Lori Ufondu sued Dr. Jan Adams and won a judgment of over $100,000 after he left a sponge inside her following surgery. Ufondu's lawyer says Dr. Adams hasn't paid.

Dr. Jan Adams was ordered to appear at 8:30 a.m. this morning in San Pedro, Calif., for a "judgment debtor" hearing, in order to establish where he had assets. The doctor didn't show, and the judge issued a warrant.

Dr. Jan Adams, who doesn't look or act shady whatsoever, operated on Kanye West's mother, Donda West, the day before she tragically passed away last week.

UPDATE: As of 2 p.m. PST, Dr. Jan Adams has surfaced walked into a Los Angeles County Courtroom to face one of his victims who sued him for malpractice and a botched surgery, TMZ is reporting live on the scene.

Dr. Adams was asked about the death of Kanye West's mom, and he said, "I can not comment appropriately until I receive the coroner's report." The "doctor" arrived, alone, in a black pinstriped suit and tie.

We will have more on the Jan Adams case as the story develops.

Meanwhile, colleagues, friends and family gathered Friday to celebrate the life of Donda West with music and tributes at a memorial service Friday at Chicago State University, where she was a faculty member for 24 years.

Fighting back tears, one good friend recalled that among other things, West was always "open and friendly with everyone. It didn't matter if you had a PHD, a bachelor's degree or no degree at all. She made everyone feel important."

Another friend read a poem in honor of Donda West about mothers, which included the lines: "How shall we celebrate mothers?/How shall we call them in the winter of their lives?/What melody will cure slow bones?/Who will bring them worriless late-years?/Who will thank them for hidden pains?"

A new website offering a rather hilarious, albeit controversial montage of actual Fox News footage â€" much of which features a (barely) censored Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, Katie Rees and cohorts - is causing quite the online uproar.

Shortly after the website - FoxNewsPorn.com - was "dug" at Digg.com, it was removed and the account of the person who submitted it disabled.

Even though "Fox News Porn" is a satire lampooning content that aired on Fox News as presented, many sites are calling the video too hot for TV, or even the Web. Maybe it's the funky, porno-style beats playing in the background?

What do you think? Check out the video and talk to The Hollywood Gossip...

The hot, sexy, satirical "Fox News Porn" channel anoints Paris Hilton as a great American, while covering Spring Break and the Anna Nicole Smith case non-stop.

The creators of Fox News Porn lambast what it calls a hypocritical network that "moralizes against the decline of decency while simultaneously promoting it... satire and parody aside, we think this is extremely objectionable, misogynistic content. We still don't understand how FOX is allowed to call this 'news.'"

Love and happiness (and cut-off camo shorts) are in the air, folks. A week after quietly getting married in New York City, newlyweds Ellen Pompeo and Chris Ivery went out for sushi in Los Angeles on Thursday, November 15.

Ellen Pompeo and Chris Ivery: Celebrating their one-week anniversary!

The Grey's Anatomy star has been dating Chris Ivery, a music producer, for a long time. Both are Boston-area natives. They got engaged just as quietly on Pompeo's birthday almost exactly one year ago, then tied the knot last Friday on the eve of the actress' 38th birthday. N.Y. City Mayor Michael Bloomberg was their witness.

Congratulations again to the happy couple!

On the set of their UK reality TV show, Kate and Peter, one of many notable British babes with huge breasts, Katie Price (a.k.a. Jordan), grabs a fistful of her husband, Peter Andre. She's clearly got him by the balls in this marriage. Check it out...

Wow. And here we thought Victoria and David Beckham were some low-class media whores from across the Atlantic. They've got nothin' on this pair.

Get it? Pair? Nevermind.

Just ask Vanessa Hudgens. Or the guys he hoops it up with.

A hot and sweaty Zac Efron spent another hour playing basketball with his pals in Los Angeles on Thursday, presumably brushing up on his mad b-ball skillz for his newest movie role in the upcoming film, Seventeen.

After his latest court session, the sexy 20-year-old High School Musical star was greeted with bunches of white roses, presented to him not by ladies (phew) but by shameless, brown-nosing peeps from celebrity news agencies.

The paparazzi said that the flowers were from his "fans in America" and "fans in Europe." Ever the gentleman, Zac Efron graciously accepted the gifts.

Zac Efron: Flower child and basketballer extraordinaire.

Readers may recall that last Friday's edition of The Hollywood Gossip Caption Contest centered on Zac's balling. Follow the link to play if you haven't already - time is running out! A new Caption Contest will be posted later this afternoon.

You'd think being able to see would be critical to one's ability to drive once the sun has gone down, but you'd also think a lot of things a certain train wreck wouldn't necessarily agree with. This picture of Britney Spears speaks for itself. 

Where the Heck Am I Right Now?

Britney Spears wears sunglasses in the dark as Sean Preston Federline sleeps, blissfully unaware of the mortal danger he faces every day of his life.

Hopefully Britney Spears did not hit anyone from any celebrity photo agencies at the time this picture was taken. We suggest she just let the court appointed monitor drive next time. Or Jayden James. He'd probably be better at driving.

As New York Magazine observes, hubris rarely bites people in the ass like you want it to. Karl Rove left the White House before being brought down, people still read Perez Hilton, and Donald Trump retains the power of speech.

But it looks like uber-agent Scott Boras, the egomaniac blowhard who thought he was bigger than the World Series, is finally getting thrown off his high horse.

Nose Picking By Alex Rodriguez

After all, Alex Rodriguez and Cynthia Rodriguez have crawled back to the Yankees' negotiating table â€" alone â€" just three weeks after A-Rod opted out of his deal with New York and left the city (and the rest of the country) cursing his name.

As Scott Boras has clearly fallen out of favor with the superstar, does that make wife Cynthia Rodriguez A-Rod's de facto agent now? That would be spectacular for all.

She was at the Yankees' meeting with A-Rod and is the biggest influence on him right now - it's obvious Cynthia Rodriguez wears the pants in this relationship.

Could she be the boss now? Unlike Boras, she's actually got balls (remember the F-Rod t-shirt). In any case, Alex and Cynthia Rodriguez, who recently announced they're expecting baby #2, are almost certainly going ink a new deal with New York soon, potentially giving us another decade of celebrity gossip fodder.

Awesome.
