The first official trailer for season 11 of American Idol is a bit painful. Talk about cheesy!

But it's nothing compared to the pain endured by judge Steven Tyler yesterday, as Reuters reports the Aerosmith singer fell in the shower and lost two front teeth. He also suffered a few gashes to his face.

There's a very good chance that a majority of The X Factor viewers have never heard of the Mac Daddy. Or even the Daddy Mac.

But Brian "Astro" Bradley did the members of Kris Kross - a young rapping duo from the early 1990s who produced two chart-topping hits and wore their clothes backward - proud last night, bringing The X Factor crowd to its feet with an original take on "Jump."

Melanie Amaro can be forgiven for a lack of originality.

The X Factor finalist - she advanced to the top 12 on the first-ever live performance show - covered a Whitney Houston classic last night, belting out her take on "I Have Nothing," a song with which any loyal singing competition viewer is familiar.

Barack Obama returned to the Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night for his first appearance on the program since March 2009, when he became the first sitting Commander-in-Chief to visit the NBC late night staple.

The President discussed everything from the death of Moammar Gadhafi and withdrawal of troops from Iraq, to Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, the Occupy Wall Street Movement, potential Republican challengers and his Halloween plans.

On its first live performance show of the season, all 17 remaining contestants on The X Factor took to the last night.

It was a long, at times painful evening that featured a handful of contenders, but just as many pretenders. It also featured the shortening of Drew Ryniewicz''s name to just Drew because apparently Simon Cowell doesn't have confidence we can pronounce the full thing.
