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.

Colton Dixon took a bit of the life out of Lifehouse last night.

The American Idol finalist took to the stage and performed a version of "Everything," trying his best to milk emotion from the ballad (and even shedding a few tears after it was over), but really just coming across as - dare we say it? - boring overall.

When is predictability a good thing? When it comes from Skylar Laine.

Faced with the challenge of selecting songs from their personal idols on American Idol this week, it wasn't hard to forecast that Laine would choose a track from Miranda Lambert. She's likely the contemporary artist with whom most viewers would compare Laine.

Elise Testone took on a major American Idol challenge last night.

The singer - who has been as up and down as any on season 11; in the bottom three on week; atop the rankings the following week - didn't shy away from Led Zepplin's "Whole Lotta Love" on an evening where finalists could choose their own track to cover.

Phillip Phillips didn't merely put on one of the best performance last night, he received the biggest compliment of any American Idol contestant.

If this were 1975, Stevie Nicks told the Dave Matthews-like crooner, Phillips would've been asked to join Fleetwood Mac. Phillip then went out and proved worthy of this praise, singing a version of Jonny Lang's "Still Rainin" with his usual style and confidence.
