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.

American Idol judges ask contestants this question every season: What kind of artist do you want to be?

This year, no finalist has an easier answer than Scotty McCreery. The 17-year old from North Carolina has a country sound and doesn't shy away from it. Case in point: last night's cover of the Garth Brooks' single "The River."

One of three wild card entries, as chosen by the judges last week, Stefano Langone made a strong statement on American Idol last night: I belong!

The singer challenged himself by taking on Stevie Wonder's "Lately," mixing it into a ballad and a jazz-based arrangement. The performance left Jennifer Lopez laughing and referring to the version as a "dance remix."

Steven Tyler can't even judge Jacob Lusk. That's what the Aerosmith frontman told the American Idol finalist last night following his cover of R. Kelly's "I Believe I Can Fly."

Tyler meant is as a compliment, of course, as Lusk once again poured every ounce of emotion he could into every note out of his mouth. Gospel singers joined Jacob on stage at one point, as he soared along on a single perfectly suited for his voice and his style.

Prior to his performance on American Idol last night, Casey Abrams was told by Jimmy Iovine:"You can't sing like [Joe Cocker] and be casual."

At this point, though, we can safely say that Casey will never have an issue with being casual.
