I am a senior staff writer at THG and a big fan of Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber and Robert Pattinson. I believe Kim Kardashian is bad for society, but great for attention, and that The Real Housewives should all be banned from existence.

Ashley Robles took on arguably the most difficult challenge one can give oneself on last night's American Idol audition show:

She covered the Dolly Parton/Whitney Houston classic "I Will Always Love You."

But Robles rose to the occasion, belting out an impression version that granted the single mother access to Hollywood from all three judges, with Randy Jackson wondering where the heck Ashley has been all the time. Are we looking at a new frontrunner?

NOTE: Due to its late airing on the East Coast, this San Diego-based episode will be shown again tomorrow night on Fox, prior to President Obama's State of the Union Address. Tune in to watch such contenders as Aubree Dieckmeyer and Jane Carrey.

As far as we know, every celebrity with a personality did not die in some kind of freak accident last night.

Yet despite the availability of, oh, anyone else, Kim Kardashian sat in with Kelly Ripa as a guest host this morning on the latter's talk show, at first making small talk about her skin; then trying to act like she watched last night's Giants/49ers NFC Championship Game; and, finally, of course, touching on her divorce from Kris Humphries.

Kim acknowledged it's been a "tough couple months," adding the same nonsense she's been spewing for weeks:

"Being a hopeless romantic, I wanted to believe in something so badly. If you think I really made all that money that everyone claimed we made on the wedding and that it was for TV... I'm a smart businesswoman, I would have stayed married longer... This was a bad business decision. I really didn't think following my heart would create this much backlash."

In this sense, we actually believe her. Kardashian hasn't had an original thought in about 14 years.

Bob Dylan is one of the most popular, respected, legitimate musicians in history.

Miley Cyrus, is, well... not.

But the 19-year old doesn't embarrass herself in the following new video, which features her covering Dylan's classic 1975 single “You’re Going to Make Me Lonesome When You Go.”

The track is off "Chimes of Freedom: The Songs of Bob Dylan Honoring 50 Years of Amnesty International," an album whose proceeds go toward that helpful organization. Make a purchase, donate today and take a listen to Miley's version of this song below:

The E! reality show circus is about to mess with Texas.

A couple months after Lamar Odom successfully lobbied for a trade, season two of Khloe & Lamar will premiere with a focus on the big move, as the couple heads from Los Angeles to Dallas, bringing Robert Kardashian along for some reason.

Will they find a new house in the area? How is Odom akin to a box of chocolate? What what hilarious show returns following this February 19 premiere? Watch the following promo for these answers and more!

Ali Shields is off to Hollywood, but it took one of the more unusual American Idol auditions to get her there.

This aspiring singer has actually been featured on national television before, posting a video online that eventually landed her a spot on Ellen. She proceeded to attend a red carpet event through the talk shot host and kiss Usher. No, really!

Last night in San Diego, meanwhile, Ali at first rapped for the Idol panel; and then broke down into a dance at Randy Jackson's request; only to finally conclude with an actual song that landed her a Golden Ticket. Watch for yourself:

While enjoyable, Ali's audition was not our favorite of the night. That honor belongs to Aubree Dieckmeyer.

Say farewell to Demi Lovato, fans. You might not be seeing her for awhile. In the Twitterverse, that is.

The singer has taken a break from the social networking service, posting two messages last night, the first of which was a mysterious reference that likely led to the second:

Demi Tweets

Lovato made news a couple weeks ago when she addressed recent struggles and actually took issue with God in a series of Tweets.

Since then, she's reportedly split with Wilmer Valderrama and struggled through a People's Choice Awards performance. So maybe it's a good call for Demi to relax a bit, take some time to herself and recharge.

As always, we wish her the best.

If American Idol were a talking competition, Aubree Dieckmeyer would be screwed.

The 20-year old auditioned in San Diego for TV's top-rated series last night... only she had trouble remembering just which show she hoping to win. See what we mean in the interview that precedes her actual try out here:

In the end, Dieckmeyer's voice stood out more than her gaffe. We could see her advancing far on season 11. Among the opponents she'll face in Hollywood, courtesy of the most recent audition episode?

Kyle Crews, who made frat boys everywhere proud with his cover of "Angel of Mine."

Who says fraternity members can't sing?!?

Okay, maybe no one. But Kyle Crews still made it his mission to change that perception last night, auditioning for American Idol in San Diego and wowing the judges with a cover of "Angel of Mine."

"You sound nothing like you look," Randy Jackson told Crews, winning the award for Backhanded Compliment of the Night, while Kyle dedicated the performance to Jennifer Lopez and her voluptuous lips.

Elsewhere, did you hear that Jane Carrey, the daughter of a certain comedic actor, also was passed through to Hollywood? It's true!

Move over, Jim Carrey! Another family member is on the way to Hollywood.

On last night's San Diego-based audition episode, 24-year old Jane Carrey tried out for American Idol, shocking Jennifer Lopez, who worked with her father way back in the day on In Living Color.

Seemingly a very normal waitress with a very cute family, Jane covered the Bonnie Raitt classic "Something to Talk About" and received a Golden Ticket based on merit, not her famous, funny connections. Watch her try out below, followed by a call to her father with the good news:

Jerry Sandusky - the disgraced former Penn State assistant whose alleged, despicable actions led to a cover-up that will forever tarnish Joe Paterno's legacy - has issued a statement on the passing of the iconic football coach.

RIP Paterno

"This is a sad day!" Sandusky said, exclamation mark included. "Our family, Dottie [Sandusky's wife] and I would like to convey our deepest sympathy to Sue [Paterno] and her family. Nobody will be able to take away the memories we all shared of a great man, his family, and all the wonderful people who were a part of his life.

"He maintained a high standard in a very difficult profession. Joe preached toughness, hard work and clean competition. Most importantly, he had the courage to practice what he preached."

Sandusky, of course, faces over 40 counts of child sex charges; while the inability of Paterno and other Penn State officials to report their knowledge of Sandusky's actions to the police has led to the biggest scandal in the history of college athletics.
