Did Ne-Yo's "Closer" help Stefano Langone get closer to the American Idol title?

Eh. Maybe it's just us, but we weren't feeling the sexy vibe he was trying to send out, and his vocals felt noticeably off-key at least a couple of times.

Will tonight be Stefano Langone's time to get the boot from American Idol? Or did he turn his hopes around? Watch him sing and see what you think:

Scotty McCreery made us rethink putting him atop our American Idol rankings prior to last night. His rendition of "Swingin'" was alright, just not spectacular.

It was an odd choice, first of all, given that it's a John Anderson song from the '80s performed on 21st Century Night (yes, LeAnn Rimes covered it recently).

LeAnn's version wasn't a huge hit and neither was Scotty's. He had a blast and showed his considerable vocal skills, but somehow left us wanting more.

Were our expectations just too high? Watch and see what you think:

We know she's got this big wedding thing coming up and all, but is Kate Middleton - looking very slender in a black dress and tan heels yesterday - getting too thin?

A little more than one week to go before she marries Prince William on April 29, Kate stepped out for some last-minute shopping on London's King's Road.

What do you think? Shedding for the wedding or going overboard?

  • Thin Kate Middleton
  • Kate Middleton: Too Thin?

Personally, we think Kate still looks fabulous.

Whatever she weighs, when she walks into Westminster Abbey, she should be looking radiant in her wedding dress, reportedly designed by Sophie Cranston.

In the meantime, the princess-to-be has been on a shopping spree, buying around $350 worth of items – possibly for her honeymoon? – from Warehouse.

Weird Al Yankovic, whose career comprised of parodying hit songs has lasted longer and been more lucrative than many of his subjects, has released a new gem.

"Perform This Way" is Al's take on Lady Gaga's "Born This Way," and includes plenty of the satirical lyrical wordplay that are Yankovic's hilarious trademarks.

Its release follows myriad reports that Gaga blocked the parody - which she can't even do, legally, but Al always gets permission from the stars in good faith.

In any case, Gaga’s manager nixed it without telling her. Word got back to Gaga, who was not pleased. The manager is sorry. Gaga loves it. Everyone is happy.

Here's Weird Al's "Perform This Way," his homage to Gaga, with lyrics:

It's really over for Leah Messer and Corey Simms.

That much has been established at this point. It's just a question of why, and what will happen to the couple's poor little twin girls in the aftermath of the split.

OK! reports that shaking hands, Leah Messer lit a cigarette to stop herself from crying as she read her husband Corey's Facebook flirtation with another girl.

“I haven’t been this happy in a long time,” the message read.

  • Jenelle and Leah: Moms at Risk
  • Battle For the Twins!

The words broke Leah's heart, and tears streamed down her face as her friend Kayla tried to comfort her - even though she had already filed for divorce days earlier.

Just the same, the Teen Mom 2 star is having a hard time facing the fact that her six-month marriage to Corey, the father of her twins, Ali and Aleeah, is over.

The battle between the young couple is about to get uglier, with Corey expected to ask for sole custody, and Corey’s parents prepared to help him financially.

Apparently there are "explosive secrets" that will determine who gets the girls, and according to fellow celebrity news magazine In Touch, abuse allegations.

We have no doubt this is a messed up situation, but putting Leah on the same cover as Jenelle Evans? That's gotta hurt almost as bad as Corey's Facebooking.

Former White House pest and Bravo reality star Michaele Salahi claims that someone's been stalking her and making death threats in recent weeks.

Her husband, Tareq Salahi, even placed a frantic 911 call for her protection.

Maybe the stalker just wanted to see Michaele Salahi in Playboy and is pissed that this is no longer in the cards? We kid. Although you never know.

The Salahis say that the threat-maker called the Sheriff's Dept. in Fauquier County, Va., falsely claiming Tareq broke into a winery co-owned by Tareq's family.

Deputies tell us they found no evidence of a break-in, but were called backwhen Tareq and Michaele found out the call came from the alleged stalker.

The Salahis filed a police report and the case is now under investigation. The couple is also seeking to have a protective order put into place ASAP.

According to the Salahis, the man has also been tailing Michaele, shooting photos and video and also sending death threats and obscene messages.

Matching efforts by James Durbin, Casey Abrams or even Lauren Alaina was a tall order for Haley Reinhart, who chose to sing Adele's "Rolling the Deep."

While choosing such a current hit is always a risk (especially a hit sung by, you know, Adele), Haley did her best to do it justice, vocally and emotionally.

Jennifer said there were moments where she did it better than Adele. We're not going that far, because it was far from perfect. But she held her own.

Watch Haley Reinhart do her thing here and vote below ...

Casey Abrams' rendition of "Harder to Breathe" by Maroon 5 was alright last night. He's got a little funk to him, enough to do Adam Levine justice out there.

The vocals were mediocre at times, but give him credit for not holding back on the performance. He ended the song right in front of J. Lo - and kissed her.

Steven approves. "You did what I've been trying to do for two months!" he said.

Jennifer Lopez actually blushed, too. "I loved it," she says. "The performance!"

Did you? Watch it below and vote on how it ranked among last night's efforts:

Lauren Alaina sometimes holds something back on stage. Not last night.

It's true that, in covering Sara Evans' hit "Born to Fly," she stayed close to the original version. But it's a great country song to stick close to the original of.

Will she spread her wings and truly fly to new heights this season on Idol? If this performance is any indication, she's still scratching the surface of her talent:

Last night on American Idol, James Durbin covered Muse, conjuring up images of Adam Lambert a few seasons ago. Durbin's song choice: "Uprising."

"I haven't gotten to show that I can be contemporary," he said, hoping to escape the metal/hard rock label. Suffice it to say, it worked and then some.

He's sounded better in the past. But he probably hasn't looked better.

The drums, the spinning cameras, the flashing lights and, of course, James' natural feel for performing sent the crowd and judges into hysterics.

After praising his cover of the Matthew Bellamy-led band, Steven made a crack about Durbin's wardrobe, telling James to stay out of his closet.
