And then there were two.

Yes, we know there are actually seven finalists remaining on American Idol - but can anyone envision a scenario in which Crystal Bowersox or Lee DeWyze does NOT take home the title?

We certainly hope not, as this pair is clearly the cream of the season nine crop. Each proved why during last night's edition of the show, based around inspirational singles, putting on performances that brought many in the audience to tears.

We've ranked the top seven in order below. Just imagine a large space between number-two and all the others...

  1. Bowersox: Who needs a guitar?!? With a perfect rendition of "People Get Ready," and with her father in the crowd, Crystal herself couldn't stop from crying. But here's encouraging news for the singer: she's the one to beat.
  2. DeWyze: He took on "The Boxer," a Paul Simon classic. It was a tender performance, one that lived up to the expectations of such a well-known, respected song. Awesome job.
  3. Casey James: Taken on its own, a solid take on "Don't Stop." But this singer sounds the same each week. Nothing stands out at this point, which might actually put Casey in danger of elimination this week.
  4. Siobhan Magnus: She took heat for her ballad of "When You Believe." But who would you rank above her? Still has a great voice and great potential.
  5. Aaron Kelly: It's difficult to get past the cheesy single he chose ("I Believe I Can Fly"), or even the shady persona of the dude who originally sang it (R. Kelly). But this Kelly connected with the audience in an impressive manner.
  6. Tim Urban: We've seen better recent performances from this cutie than his cover of "Better Days." His time might finally be up.
  7. Michael Lynche: Another cheesy ballad, as Big Mike took a big chance with "Hero." His voice just couldn't carry such a tough song choice.

Who was your favorite performer of the night?

  • Inspiring Viewers
  • Not His Best Day
  • Believing He Can Fly
  • When You Believe Rendition
  • Big Mike, Big Stage
  • Casey Takes the Stage
  • Bowersox! Bowersox!

Kate Gosselin was sent packing on Dancing With the Stars Tuesday.

After their fifth consecutive brutal week, she and partner Tony Dolovani could not stave off the inevitable. When her fate was announced, she was speechless.

"I need a minute," she said, tearfully. "I am so honored to have been here. It was a good experience. I cannot wait to watch the rest of these people Monday."

In the bottom two for the second time this season, despite being decent Monday night and all season long, were Pamela Anderson and Damian Whitewood.

A Tearful Farewell

Kate Gosselin reacts to her Dancing with the Stars ouster.

Tony Dovolani, who has clashed repeatedly with her, then said he is "proud of Kate. I know she gets a lot of criticism out ... She has eight kids and is a single mom ... she showed up every single day. I thought she danced beautifully."

Now she can show up every day at home, right Jon Gosselin?

If nothing else, it was a classy exit and a fairly long run. To her fan base, Kate said "Thank you for believing in me probably more than I believed in myself."

She seemed defeated and resigned before the results show, but she has nothing to be ashamed of. Click to enlarge some of Kate's top dancing moments ...

Are you sad Kate was eliminated on Dancing with the Stars?

On April 30, Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon will get married. For the third time.

The first, official ceremony took place in early 2008, and the pair plan on getting married "every year," Nick Cannon told Us Weekly.

"That's our thing," he said.

"It's going to be our third wedding this year," he added. "That's what we'll be doing on the actual [anniversary]...We'll do something...A party or event, just to celebrate."

That seems a little self-serving and egocentric - but, hey, whatever makes the marriage last! At least Cannon isn't banging Las Vegas cocktail waitresses in his spare time.

He'll be too busy shopping for yet another diamond ring to do much of anything, Cannon joked. He confirmed that he gets his wife more bling every year.

"This is the third ring I have to buy... It’ll be something different. Something good."

Who says the economy is bad?!?

Maybe Tara Reid simply isn't the marrying type.

Maybe she realized she was Tara Reid and was engaged to Michael Axtmann. Maybe Michael Axtmann realized he could do better than Tara Reid.

We may never know the true reason why they called off their May 22 nuptials, but it's all over and done, according to the pair's terse statement.

Reid revealed in January that her Michael Axtmann, her businessman boyfriend Axtmann, popped the question, with a huge ring and everything.

It was good while it lasted ... three months.

Michael Axtmann is no longer the future Mr. Tara Reid.

"Obviously I said yes," the reformed party girl said at the time. "I was very surprised."

Whether it was an unpleasant surprise that led to her decision to call it off, we can't say. Nor can we say when the next set of Tara Reid nude photos will come out, but judging by her need to stay relevant, we'd give it less than a year.

He made the Statue of Liberty disappear. You think a lawsuit stands a chance?

The woman who accused star illusionist David Copperfield of luring her to his island in the Bahamas in 2007 with career opportunities and then forcing her to have sex once she arrived has dropped her federal complaint.

Copperfield's camp always said he was a mere victim of "attempted extortion."

"It has never been about money," plaintiff Lacey Carroll (she voluntarily identified herself) said in a statement released by her attorneys Tuesday.

"I just wanted him held accountable for what he did."

POOF: David Copperfield has beaten the rap.

The FBI investigated the woman's rape allegations against Copperfield for nearly two years, at one point searching his warehouse in Las Vegas for evidence.

They ended their probe in January without filing charges.

"Carroll's lawsuit was nothing more than a pathetic attempt to extort Mr. Copperfield for money with malicious and false allegations," the magician's attorney, Angelo Calfo, said in a statement. "There was no settlement."

"Mr. Copperfield would not and did not pay Carroll a dime."

Calfo also said that Copperfield is cooperating with the FBI "to have Carroll prosecuted for having wasted taxpayer dollars." We wouldn't bet against David ... he can just take her money if he wants with no trace anyway.

Kal Penn was robbed at gunpoint yesterday, and boy did that robber single out the least preferable semi-famous actor turned Obama administration member.

For his sake. The United States Secret Service is now on the case.

It turns out that the perpetrator didn't just take Penn's wallet, he also made off with Kal's two cell phones, one belonging to the U.S. government.

Penn is the White House's Associate Director in the office of Public Engagement. To quote Kristin Cavallari, you f*%ked with the WRONG guy, dude!

The 32-year-old former member of the House cast left the hit Fox drama to join the administration of the President-elect back in late 2008.

The crook took Kal's government-issued cell, the Secret Service is now joining with the D.C. Metro Police Department to hunt for the bad guy.

Sources tell us Penn contacted White House communications, who cut off the service on the stolen phone ASAP and issued him a new cell.

Reports say "no information was compromised because no official numbers were in the phone." Harold & Kumar quotes, however? Unclear.

A measly Gossip Girl star has no shot in a fashion face-off against a supermodel and Project Runway goddess ... right? Hey, don't write off Leighton Meester yet.

The 24-year-old actress and the mother of four both added a techno note to their ikat dresses with digitally generated prints, and looked great, we might add.

But who wore theirs better? That's for you to decide and for us to post the results of your balloting. That said, vote below, celebrity fashion fans, in our poll!

Who wore it better?

Jessica Simpson left JFK airport earlier this week, attempting to trick a pack of celebrity gossip photographers by leaving via the secret exit ... to no avail!

Perhaps she was trying to evade being seen dressed like a hobo (with an extremely expensive bag, no doubt)? Just kidding. Well, mostly. What is that top?

We've seen more stylish Jessica Simpson pictures, that's all we're saying. What do you think, though? Fashion hit or fashion miss? Vote in our survey below:

Books are all the rage in Hollywood; some dumb, some REALLY dumb, and at least one hopefully inspiring.

Earlier today, we announced that the Kardashian sisters are planning a relationship-themed tome. Insert your own joke now.

Kelly LeBrock, the ex-wife of shady actor Steven Seagal, also plans to exploit her husband's alleged seedy side by penning a biography about the father of her three kids. How charming.

But Susan Boyle is here to rescue us from all this inappropriate madness. She'll tell her own story in The Woman I was Born to Be, a true autobiography due this fall.

Susan Photo

”I think I’ve grown up a lot in the last year, become more of a lady, and I’m not so frightened anymore," she said, adding:

“I’m writing this book to try to show that you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, and I hope it will benefit other people. My story demonstrates that you shouldn’t just look at the label, you should look at the whole person, emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually, and I hope that telling it will show that dreams are not impossible, if you’ve got courage and a willingness to go on no matter what the circumstances.”

Amen, SuBo! Will you purchase her self-written tale?

Michael Douglas' son Cameron, who was nabbed last year in a major drug dealing operation, was sentenced to five years in prison this afternoon in NYC.

Cameron Douglas, along with his father and his mother Diandra, was present in federal court in Manhattan today when the judge fired off the sentence.

Michael asked for leniency for his son ... and didn't really get it.

Along with the prison time, Cameron was ordered to pay $25,000 in fines and must serve 450 hours of community service as a result of his guilty plea.

Once he's out of jail Cameron is also required to spend an additional five years in a supervised release program. They certainly didn't go easy on him.

Last year, Cameron Douglas was caught in a federal sting operation with large amounts of methamphetamine and cocaine with intent to distribute.

Hopefully prison straightens this guy out.
