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."

Randy Jackson applauded Scotty for remaining true to who he is, saying "if it ain't broke, don't even think about fixing it," while Jennifer Lopez gushed that McCreery us "taking us all on the ride." Where will it go from here? Watch Scotty's latest performance and try to gauge his prospects:

Chris Brown raised eyebrows - shocker there, we know - with a recent interview in which he said he was done apologizing for attacking Rihanna.

While the point was that he can't just keep saying sorry every minute of every day for life, it was the word "mishap" that the media seized upon.

He put himself in this position with his own actions, but this was somewhat unfair to Brown, who was trying to make a broader point about fame.

Brown at the Beach

In the full interview, it's clear that Chris Brown was trying to express the frustrations and pitfalls of fame in the context of his new album F.A.M.E.

The album title stands for Forgiving All My Enemies and also Fans Are My Everything. The "mishap" he was referring to was no specific event.

Of people who turned their backs on him, or on any person after a negative event in their life, Brown actually sympathized, saying the following:

“You can’t blame people for how they want to be portrayed or if they don’t want to be associated with somebody who had a particular mishap.”

Was it boring or did it result in roaring?

Of all the American Idol finalists who took to the stage last night, Haley Reinhart received the most mixed feedback from the judges.

Randy Jackson gave Haley props for going from Alicia Keys one week to LeAnn Rimes the next, but he also referred to her rendition of "Blue" as "sleepy" and "boring." Steven Tyler, conversely, said you could hear the parts of America who loved country western music "roaring" over the performance.

Jennifer Lopez? She just spouted praise-filled nonsense, as always. Watch Reinhart yodel her way through an interesting song choice below and gauge your own opinion on the contestant:

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 compared Stefano to a "soaring volcano," while Randy Jackson likely paid him the biggest compliment of all: "It's so hard to sign Stevie Wonder. He'd be proud of this, because you slayed it."

NOTE: This article really doesn't tell you a whole lot.

The new Us Weekly may well have exclusive details and photos of Brad Womack's final dates in South Africa on The Bachelor, but the juicy details are lacking.

If you want to know if he picks Emily Maynard or Chantal O'Brien, well, The Bachelor spoilers here can probably enlighten you. That's as much as we'll say.

Who do you think Brad ends up proposing to?

Secrets of The Bachelor Finale

Brad's last date with single mom Emily involves a wilderness picnic in Cape Point starting with a helicopter ride. "They ended it with a kiss," an insider says.

With Chantal, she and Brad opted for something more adventurous. We're talking about a whale and shark watch aboard a boat by Danger Point peninsula.

"They held hands," the source observed, scandalously.

When the time came for the native Texan to give out his final rose and propose - and give one of the ladies some bad news - Womack was very nervous.

Still, as evidenced by the season finale preview airing this week, it was a call he had to make. Brad "knew he made the right decision," the insider adds.

THG Asks: What do you think that right decision should be?!

Lindsay Lohan's lawyer and the prosecutor in her grand theft case met with the judge in chambers yesterday and left without a plea bargain.

Prosecutor Danette Meyers wants Lindsay to get six months in jail, but LiLo's lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, is hoping for a lighter sentence.

Lohan, as we know, refuses any plea deal that involves her doing time. So we're at an impasse, but negotiations will continue this afternoon.

Ready For Court

Lindsay preens for the cameras before her arraignment.

According to TMZ, Lindsay was given a continuance so she can have more time to mull over the Judge Keith Schwartz's offer, which involves jail time.

Schwartz had made it clear that if Lindsay doesn't cop a plea by today, he'd send the case off to a trial judge, where she'd have to take her chances.

But the judge is now allowing Lindsay more time to consider this.

The fact that Lindsay is even thinking about accepting Judge Schwartz' offer is huge, as she's been adamant up until now that she won't go to jail.

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.

Lusk is at the "top" of J. Lo's list, she said after the performance. Where does he stand for you?

Following a performance by Judas Priest last week, James Durbin channeled another famous hard hard metal artist last night in the form of...

... Paul McCartney?!?

This versatile contestant proved his range by going a bit soft during his first rendition as a finalist, covering "Maybe I'm Amazed" and earning wild praise from the judges. Said Randy: "You just kind of turned the other cheek, showed you have a sensitive side... James Durbin is dangerous, America."

Do you agree? Watch and react now:

Despite reports of an Eddie Cibrian-LeAnn Rimes reality show in the works, the singer claims she's not and will never take her career down that road.

No way, in fact. Rimes flatly denied a story that said she is negotiating the rights to a reality show that would follow her wedding plans with Ed.

"I don't know how many times I have to say Eddie and I would never do a reality show about our lives," the singer Tweeted earlier this week.

Eddie and LeAnn Picture

Her rep also commented, calling reports "absolutely untrue."

Adds the rep of the couple, who got engaged in December, "There has never been, nor are there, any plans for LeAnn and Eddie to do a reality show."

This is not the first rumor surrounding the pair's romance.

They denied their engagement about a month before it happened, then recently denied reports that they're getting married in Montana this spring.

Rimes also shot down pregnancy speculation last year. It's enough to drive Brandi Glanville insane ... not that you can consider that a huge stretch.
