American Idol viewers made the right, obvious choice last night, sending Casey James home.

The long-haired singer has come a long way since being depicted as nothing but eye candy for Kara DioGuardi, but he was clearly the worst performer on Tuesday and reacted to his elimination with humility.

"I can't believe it, man," he said after Ryan Seacrest delivered the bad news. "I'm so thankful for the opportunity. It's been an amazing journey and I'm just so honored that I'm here."

Getting Bad News

We're now left with Lee DeWyze and Crystal Bowersox, not the most exciting final pairing, but one that should keep fans guessing about who will win next week.

Bowersox has been considered the favorite for months, but Lee has come on on strong recently, earning as much praise as any contestant all season for his rendition of "Hallelujah" on Tuesday night. We'll publish a more detailed finale preview in the coming days, but sound off now:

Who do you want to win?

 

As usual, the results show also featured a pair of professional performances, which may explain why your ears are ringing this morning. The screams emanating in the arena from Justin Bieber fans can still be heard in many homes.

Also, new artist Travis Garland took to the stage. What did you think of his national debut? Check out photos of Garland, Bieber and the Idols below:

Miss USA Rima Fakih instantly became the center of controversy after she won the crown last weekend, thanks to some of her stripper pole champion photos.

That wasn't enough to get her title stripped, however, and her reign has begun. Much to the dismay of some critics upset about her Muslim/Arab background.

While the contestant herself has spoken little about this, stressing that her family observes both Muslim and Christian holidays, others have been very vocal.

Daniel Pipes, who publishes a right-leaning blog on Middle Eastern affairs, pointed to a supposed "surprising frequency of Muslims winning beauty pageants."

While "they are all attractive," Pipes, a former board member of the U.S. Institute for Peace, said they "make me suspect an odd form of affirmative action."

Pipes didn't theorize how shadowy beauty-pageant fixers might be greasing the skids for Rima Fakih or contestants, but other political bloggers went further.

Did Miss USA Rima Fakih benefit from political correctness?

"Miss Hezbollah is now Miss USA," declared conservative radio talk show host Debbie Schlussel, saying Fakih's Lebanese relatives had ties to the terrorist group.

Schlussel also said Fakih received financial backing from Hezbollah supporter Imad Hamad and wrote her off to a "politically correct, Islamo-pandering climate."

Conservative blogger Michelle Malkin saw a conspiracy, too - though generic rather than Muslim-specific this time. Malkin mocked Fakih as "gaffetastic."

While Fakih bungled her answer about birth control, runner-up Morgan Elizabeth Woolard of Oklahoma was asked for her views on Arizona's immigration law.

That question drew boos from the crowd before the judge - actor Oscar Nunez of The Office - could even finish getting it out, but Woolard handled it very well.

Still, Fox & Friends host Gretchen Carlson suggested that Woolard's conservative-leaning informed opinion cause the judges to exercise political correctness.

Is that why Fakih won the crown over a blonde from Oklahoma? She will keep her crown regardless, but the controversy continues to swirl regarding her victory.

Eliminated a few weeks ago, Kate Gosselin discusses her impending return to Dancing with the Stars for the finale, and what it will entail. Here's a hint - flying.

Yep, we'll see Kate soar, if only literally. The famous mom told Entertainment Tonight that her last dance number will "involve flying" on the season-ender.

"I am dancing a strange combination of two songs," the celebrity news show correspondent said. "An old dance, a new dance, and it involves flying."

Should Gosselin fall in her death-defying stunt, Jon Gosselin will try his best not to laugh pro dancer Anna Trebunskaya offered to look after her eight children.

Hey, woman said she needs parenting help as it is ...

Kate Dances

Kate typically dances very low ... to the ground, and in terms of scoring.

"We can split them all between the cast and they're going to visit each other every two days," Anna joked of the little soon to be reloaded Kate Plus 8 starlets.

Last month, a source said Kate has been "moping" since leaving the show: "Kate misses the media coverage," the source said. "She got used to the publicity."

But now Gosselin's back in the limelight, at least for the short term, as Entertainment Tonight's special correspondent for DWTS, Monday through Wednesday.

Enjoy it while it lasts, Kate. Enjoy it while it lasts.

Look, we've run out of ways to make fun of tabloids and their utterly ridiculous coverage of celebrities such as Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.

These magazines just concoct misleading cover stories based on randomly uttered words and photos taken out of context. To wit, see here.

But this is the thing, readers: such fabrications only exist because you buy the publications. Its capitalism 101: supply does its best to meet demand.

So let's agree to eliminate demand, shall we? We're staring at you, Twihards. DO NOT PURCHASE THIS MAGAZINE. Don't allow these editors to laugh all the way to the bank over how they duped millions of people yet again...


At THG, we solemnly swear to bring you every ounce of Robsten news out there... free of charge! We won't report on any engagement until we see the ring for ourselves.

Okay? Do we have a deal? You have the power to end tabloid abuse of this nature. Take full advantage of it today. Walk right by those newsstands and never look back.

It's over for Audrina Patridge and Ryan Cabrera. They had a good four months of dating going. We are sad it didn't last longer for them. But we're not shocked.

The Hills star cycles through boyfriends in prolific fashion, as we all know, and a source confirms that she and her latest one split up "a little over a week" ago.

"Things started to go awry the night of her birthday and she ended things after that - pretty much the next day," explains an insider of the now-former couple.

Audrina Patridge, who just turned 25, and Cabrera, 27, spent May 9 in Las Vegas partying at Liquid Pool at Aria, then later at Las Palmas Latin Supper Club.

Ryan Cabrera and Audrina Patridge have called it a relationship.

Things seemed to be going so well, too, but they took a turn for the worst early this month. The biggest issue behind Audzo's breakup with the lame singer?

"Ryan’s a constant partier and that became an issue," says the source. "Audrina was crying at Wango Tango ... MTV made her film and she didn't want to."

The former couple first dated several years ago, and then rekindled a romance last January. They were spotted vacationing in Mexico together in February.

Patridge's last on-screen romance was Justin-Bobby Brescia, ending last year. There was also Corey Bohan ... and Tal Cooperman, and Brody Jenner, and ...

Hmmm... maybe Justin Bieber is right for Kim Kardashian after all.

Consider: The young artist has been nominated for a Black Entertainment Television Award. Does anyone else see something wrong with that statement?

Bieber earned a nod in the Best New Artist category, joining Nicki Minaj, B.o.B., Young Money and Melanie Fiona. There's something that separates Justin from those four. We just can't put our finger on it...

Quasi Black Musician

Stephen Hill, BET's President of Music Programming and Specials, said of the nomination:

"Bieber has crossed the color boundaries the same way that hip-hop has crossed the boundaries the other way for a number of years. He's had rhythm in his music. He makes the type of music our audience likes."

Yes, Mr. Hill just compared Justin Bieber to just transformative artists as Diddy and Snoop Dogg. We can't sit by and let this comparison stand! We mean, come on!

Those artists did NOT have Justin's hair.

Note to Lamar Odom: you better knock up your wife as soon as possible. Otherwise, who knows what pathetic cries for attention Khloe Kardashian will try out next.

Without any new boyfriend to marry, without a bun in her oven and without an ounce of talent in her possession, Khloe took to her official blog this week to garner attention in any way possible.

Vegas Girls

She posted a photo of herself in the bathtub at the age of two, along with this entry:

Here I am in all my adorably naked glory (AGAIN)! I mean seriously, how cute was I?!?!? Haha I look like such a little diva -- hair in a bun, dead serious face, surrounded by bubbles in a luxurious bathtub.

Man, I really knew how to live when I was 2 1/2 years old. If only I still had that kind of time to kick back and relax.

It's true. Khloe's life is just so hectic, she has no time at all to take a bath. She's just so busy.... ummm... wait...

What does Khloe Kardashian do again?

Lindsay Lohan will not be making it to court for her DUI probation hearing tomorrow, and once you hear the reason why, you'll have pretty much heard everything.

Our headline above is not literally true, but it might as well be. Lindsay claims that someone stole her passport in Cannes, France. Theoretically possible? Sure.

But come on. There's no way that happened.

LL claims she actually went to the airport yesterday trying to get on a flight - she's required in court in L.A. Thursday - without a passport but was denied boarding. 

She claims that despite the looming ash cloud, she had a flight booked so she could make it back to L.A. for tomorrow's mandatory court hearing on her probation.

Lohan supposedly has an appointment at the U.S. Embassy tomorrow at 9 a.m. to get another passport so she can fly home. We'll see what her excuse is then.

Future Jail Bird

As for the court hearing, Judge Marsha Revel has said that she will issue a warrant for Lindsay Lohan's arrest if the star doesn't show up at 8:30 a.m. as scheduled.

Deputy D.A. Danette Meyers, who is assigned to her case, said: "I hadn't heard that Lindsay's passport was stolen. If that is what truly happened, I'm truly sorry."

"However, if it's a hoax, I can tell you that Judge Revel will take it very, very seriously. Judge Revel and I are both going to be looking into this further. If she is looking for a way to make a non-appearance, we will take that very seriously."

"When was the passport stolen, and when was it reported? I'm pretty sure that if you go to the American Embassy, you can be issued an emergency passport."

She really expects us to believe it was stolen? By whom, when, and why? Indrani, to keep her in France? Isn't she with bodyguards? Talk about living in denial.

Lindsay's lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, said: "I was on the phone with Lindsay's assistant the entire night and we're doing everything we can to resolve this."

Holley adds, "Lindsay is distraught because it was her intention to get back to L.A. today to do more alcohol education classes and appear in court tomorrow."

Lindsay Lohan really belongs in ...
