It's still early to make any bold predictions, but this much is safe to say: Jacob Lusk must be considered one of the favorite to capture this season's American Idol crown.

The soulful singer from Compton, California possesses a vocal range that is only matched by the incredible emotion he squeezes out of every performance. Definitely someone to watch, starting with this Tuesday's all-male audition night.

Solid Scott

But Scott McCreery might have something to say about Lusk's march to the title. The 17-year old North Carolina resident is one of the only true country singers in the competition. Think he has a chance to go all the way?

They look very different and they hail from opposite ends of the country.

But Washington native Stefano Langone has something important in common with Florida resident Brett Loewenstern: they are two of the top 24 contestants on this season of American Idol.

We wish each of these singers the best of luck, and we'd also like to train them for the competition to come. Starting Tuesday night, when the top dozen men perform, Loewenstern and Langone will be enemies.

So let's match them up now: which of these hopefuls do you see advancing the farthest on American Idol?

The lunacy of Charlie Sheen has resulted in CBS shutting down production on Two and a Half Men this season.

But don't think this news fazes the hilariously troubled actor, who texted from the Bahamas last night - where he's vacationing with a pair of Sheen-proclaimed "goddesses," Bree Olson and Natalie Kenly - and told Radar Online he's nearing a deal with HBO.

Charlie Sheen on Tour

“I’m close to securing a deal... for a 10 show guarantee,” he wrote. "It will be epic, all types of guests and we will focus on the truth and the absurd!”

Who could have guessed how prescient the folks behind Major League were when they dubbed Sheen's character "Wild Thing?"

No comment yet from that network, but Sheen is still under contract with CBS. Would he really leave a sitcom that pays him $2 million per episode? Yes. Because he claims the HBO deal would be worth $5 million/week.

Can we believe anything from a man who orders suitcases full of cocaine, refers to himself as a "High Priest Vatican Assassin Warlock" and believes he's "winning" at life because all of us "losers" cannot "process" his behavior? Of course not.

But, however it comes about, this is our best guess: no way is Sheen starring on Two and a Half Men next season.

One has scarcely been heard from on season 10, while the other made a bad impression on viewers during group night in Hollywood when he gave the boot to Jacee Badeaux.

However, Clint Jun Gamboa and Tim Halperin have both advanced to the semifinals on American Idol, two of just a dozen men to have done so.

The pair will perform on Tuesday night, but let's match them up a few days prior to that showdown. Who do you think has the brighter future? Gamboa, a Southern California karaoke champion? Or Halperin, a TCU graduate and employee?

Sometimes, simple is sexy.

One of those times? When Megan Fox is at the center of a commercial, alternating between black lingerie and no top at all.

Such is the treat men are in for in this vixen's latest Armani ad. The actress and tennis star Rafael Nadal are the hot bodied spokespeople for this brand's spring clothing campaign, but it's Fox's lack of clothing that captures our attention in the video below. Watch it now, but be careful:

American Idol revealed its top 24 contestants last night.

Looking ahead, the remaining 12 men will compete Tuesday night, the remaining 12 women will do the same Wednesday - and the first live results episode of the season will take place on Thursday.

But let's look even farther ahead: two of the dozen males to have made it this far are Casey Abrams and Jovany Barreto. The pair couldn't be much different, with Casey looking and acting a bit like Seth Rogen and Barreto rocking a set of abs that would make The Situation jealous.

Compare what you know about each of these hopefuls now and decide: Which has the best chance of winning?

Two and a Half Men was scheduled to resume shooting on Monday. Then, Charlie Sheen opened his ridiculous mouth.

First, he went on a radio show and said all THIS. Then, he spoke to TMZ and challenged sitcom creator Chuck Lorre to a fight, saying:

"I violently hate Chaim Levine [Chuck Lorre].  He's a stupid, stupid little man and a p**sy punk that I'd never want to be like."

Such a Winner

Sheen continued: "That piece of s**t [Lorre] took money out of my pocket, my family's pocket, and, most importantly, my second family - my crew's pocket... you can tell him [Lorre] one thing. I own him."

In response, CBS and Warner Bros. have issued the following statement:

"Based on the totality of Charlie Sheen's statements, conduct and condition, CBS and Warner Bros. Television have decided to discontinue production of Two and a Half Men for the remainder of the season."

UPDATE: Naturally, Sheen has now fired back at Lorre. He's released this letter to TMZ:

Charlie Sheen appeared on The Alex Jones Show this afternoon, taking time to address critics, comment on his love life and bash the heck out of Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre.

He also referred to Thomas Jefferson as a "pussy."

Among the topics covered in this wide-ranging, absolute must-drop-everything-and-listen-to-right-now interview:

  • His harem of sex partners, which includes Natalie Kenly, is "a marriage is a heart. Or of the hearts. To sully or contaminate what we have with a [marriage] contract is something I'll leave to the bible grippers. The bible grippers."
  • Is Brooke Mueller a part of it still? No. "Where there were four, there are now three. Goodbye, Brooke. Good luck in your travels, you're gonna need it. Badly!"
  • He's getting a new tattoo, described as "gnarlyisms." It's a banner from Apocalypse Now, combined with the apple from The Giving Tree. "There's my life. Deal with it. Oh, wait, can't process it? LOSERS! Winning! Buh-bye."
  • On his critics: "I'm dealing with fools and trolls... They lay down with their ugly wives in front of their ugly children and then look at their loser lives and look at me and think: I cant process it! Well, no, and you never will. Stop trying. Just sit back and enjoy the show!"
  • On Lorre: He's a "turd," who "I embarrassed... by healing at a pace that his un-evolved mind cannot process."
  • He also refers to himself as a "High Priest Vatican Assassin Warlock."

The only thing more ridiculous than every word out of Sheen's mouth? The self-serving brown nosing of the show's host. Throughout the interview, Jones was on his figurative knees for the actor more than Bree Olson likely is right at this very moment.
