To paraphrase our favorite The 40-Year Old Virgin quotes:

How do we know David Hernandez is gay?

The Faces of David Archuleta

It's actually not because this American Idol contestant stripped at an all-male bar a few years ago. It's because, prior to auditioning for the show, Hernandez sang on cruise ships with a group of guys called the Vinyl Four.

We're not judging. We're just saying.

Wow. And we thought President Bush was being phony this afternoon when he pretended to approve of John McCain as the Republican nominee for president.

Take a look at what Bush was thinking when last year's American Idol champion, Jordin Sparks, performed at the White House earlier this year...

Do you agree? Do you think Blake Lewis should have won?

We wonder how Bush will feel about David Archuleta ... we mean, whoever ends up being crowed this year's American Idol champion.

Michael Johns sang the 1980s smash "Don't You Forget About Me" on last night's American Idol.

But the talented Australian might as well have been telling viewers the same thing, as he and other contestants did their best to prove that David Archuleta hasn't won anything just yet...

Might new Amanda Overmyer pictures make the recently released Ramiele Malubay photos seem tame by comparison?

According to unreliable celebrity gossip newspaper The National Enquirer, an individual is shopping naked pictures of this American Idol semifinalist around the World Wide Web.

We haven't uncovered these photos yet - and, trust us, we've tried - but rumors state they'll be published online as soon as someone ponies up the cash.

Is this story valid? We doubt it. Overmyer doesn't seem like the sex kitten type. Remember, though: The National Enquirer was also first to report awhile back that Vanessa Hudgens nude shots existed… and that turned out to be true!

Amidst a sea of American Idol scandals involving David Hernandez and Danny Noriega, Jason Castro took the stage last night and reminded viewers what this competition was all about:

Great singing.

Sorry, Casey

Check out his performance of the classic, slow, 1980s song "Hallelujah" right now:

How far do you think Jason Castro can advance on American Idol?

On last night's American Idol, four contestants stood up and make one thing clear: David Archuleta hasn't won anything yet!

While everyone's favorite, 17-year old, former Star Search winner did a solid job with the Phil Collins' song "Another Day in Paradise," he wasn't on the receiving end of the evening's strongest praise from judges. That went to the following four hopefuls:

1. David Cook: His version of Lionel Richie's "Hello" was met with raves from Randy Jackson, who said the single could be a hit today. Simon Cowell echoed those sentiments, with: "David, that was a very brave thing to do, and I loved it."

2. David Hernandez decided to play directly into those gay rumors by singing Celine Dione's "It's All Coming Back to Me Now." Gotta admire him for that. While not as beloved as Cook, Hernandez did hear the only words from Simon that anyone could ask for: "You've 100 percent secured a place in the finals."

3. Michael Johns sounded like the original singer of "Don't You Forget About Me." We agreed right away with what Randy said that it was a "good song choice," while even Paula Abdul made sense with: "I'm so glad you are the type of artist who is defining who you are."

4. Jason Castro: Hallelujah! This dreadlocked star calmly performed a stellar version of the son "Hallelujah." Simon summed it up thusly: "I thought it was absolutely brilliant what you just did... You are getting better and better and better. I'm very happy."

Who was your favorite performer of the night?

Another hour, another American Idol scandal.

Already today, we've covered the David Hernandez gay stripper story, while also publishing another racy photo of season seven contestant Ramiele Malubay.

Go, Didi!

But we've saved the crudest American Idol semifinalist story for last: in the clip below, taped a couple years ago, Danny Noriega wishes everyone anything but a merry Christmas.

We have no idea what the cause of Noriega's angst, but we do know this: if the troubled singer had his way, everyone would have a major problem with Santa Claus. Here's why...

After David Archuleta brought viewers to tears with his version of "Imagine" last week, we were afraid season seven of American Idol would become a bore. It's never fun when the winner is essentially crowned so early.

But David Hernandez and Ramiele Malubay are keeping things interesting.

American Idol Top Seven

It's been confirmed that the former spent time as a nude dancer at an all-male club in Arizona. We don't find anything wrong with that, but FOX very well might.

Meanwhile, Malubay has already been in the celebrity gossip news for a photo on her Facebook account that depicts her breasts being grabbed by a few female friends. We definitely don't think find anything wrong with this; but, again, parents of young American Idol viewers might.

Now, a new picture from Ramiele's Facebook gallery has emerged. This time, Malubay is the one doing the boob grabbing...

Ramiele Malubay makes like Katie Rees in this photo. Will she face the same repercussions as that disgraced beauty queen?

Looks like previous reports that David Hernandez worked at an all-male bar as a less-than-fully dressed bartender are valid.

The manager of a male strip club in Phoenix says the 24-year-old performed in the buff at the establishment for three years, ending in September 2007.

"He had the look and the type that people like, so he made pretty good money here," Gordy Bryan, manager of Dick's Cabaret, told the Associated Press.

Former Stripper

Does this mean Hernandez's future on American Idol is in jeopardy? The past is unclear on the question.:

In 2003, finalist Frenchie Davis was removed from the running once it was revealed her picture appeared on an adult Web site... but last year Antonella Barba stayed in the competition, despite seemingly being caught giving a blow job on camera.

Meanwhile, certain celebrity gossip sites have been spreading a supposedly scandalous photo of Ramiele Malubay around the Internet. What might that mean for the talented young singer?

Most likely, nothing.
