Justin Bieber proved once again this week why he's one of the coolest, most giving celebrities on the planet.

The singer arranged to have a six-year cancer patient named Avalanna Routh fly with her family to New York to spend a day with her hero, following a pretend wedding thrown by Routh's friends last year in which she got hitched to the Biebs.

Up until last night, Reed Grimm appeared to be one of the most confident American Idol contestants in recent memory. The guy initially auditioned with the Family Matters theme song, after all.

But the season 11 contestant - who grew up on stage, singing alongside his family - showed some panic in Hollywood, as he was told shortly before it was time to perform that he could not sing a capella as he had planned. He had to include the band.

Jen Hirsch has something in common with Colton Dixon: both are back on American Idol, hoping for a better fortune.

Each tried out for the show on seasons past (Dixon on 10, Hirsch on nine) and each has now advanced to Hollywood the second time around. How far can Hirsch go? All the way, if last night's rendition of "Georgia on My Mind" is any indication.

Colton Dixon really hopes the second time is a charm.

This Murfreeboro, Tennessee native came oh-so-close to the top 24 on season 10 of American Idol, and didn't even plan on trying out for season 11. But he showed up a couple weeks ago to support his sister, got roped into a song... and there he was last night, on stage in Hollywood.
