Some fans were floored by it, and others weren't impressed, but it's safe to say that 19-year-old Siobhan Magnus' rendition of "Paint it Black" was definitely the most buzzed-about of this week's 12 American Idol performances.

The judges loved it, though Simon even acknowledged that a lot of people are likely to dislike her flamboyant style. That's a compliment, as it beats indifference.

We gotta give it up to Siobhan Magnus for upping the drama, paying tribute to this Rolling Stones classic, yet being original and keeping us riveted throughout.

Here's the performance if you missed it or want another look ...

What do you think? The night's best, or not worth the hype some gave it? Can Siobhan compete for the American Idol title or will she fade fast?

There were lots of strong performances among the finalists on American Idol, but the most memorable moment of the night may have come from Ryan Seacrest.

After Simon Cowell called out Michael Lynche for "corny" dance moves, Ryan not only came to the affable singer's defense, he got in Simon's grill in the process.

The normally unflappable judge was taken aback - and scooted his seat back, throwing his hands up and admitting he was very uncomfortable. Point, Seacrest!

Chalk up another memorable exchange in one of Hollywood's ongoing rivalries / friendships. We never quite know what to make of the dynamic between them.

Ryan definitely threw Simon off here, though, which was funny and uncomfortable. Check out the clip below of the two stars almost butting heads ... literally:

Tens of millions saw Sandra Bullock thank her husband, Jesse James, as she accepted her best actress Oscar for The Blind Side this month. Little did we know ...

She might have chosen different words had she known about his torrid 11-month affair with tattoo model Michelle McGee, which In Touch Weekly alleges today.

The worst part of the scandal, if you buy it, is that McGee, who goes by the nickname "Bombshell," says James told her he and Sandra were no longer together.

“I would never have hooked up with him if I thought he was a married man,” Michelle said. “He gave me the impression they were separated.” The impression?

Whatever impression he made, it was lasting. With Sandra in Atlanta shooting The Blind Side, Michelle says she had sex at least once a week with James.

Sandra Bullock: Betrayed!

Is Sandra Bullock's husband guilty of the ultimate betrayal?

Far from a one-night stand, the Monster Garage star's relationship with Michelle was McGee "intimate and highly charged." We're talking prolonged boinkage people.

Michelle even says she called Jesse, who apparently does not wear underwear or condoms, by a special pet name, the Vanilla Gorilla, as he's "so well-endowed."

Okay, we really hope this story is made up for Sandra's sake and for our own. We may need to poach the In Touch writer who came up with that for a job at THG.

As for how they met, McGee said she "sent West Coast Choppers a friend request" because she hoped to snag a modeling gig there. Jesse James personally replied.

From the start, it was never about business.

Andrea McNulty, the first woman to accuse Ben Roethlisberger of sexual assault (she came forward last year), is being sought in the new investigation into his conduct.

Georgia law enforcement officers have contacted McNulty's lawyer as they continue looking into claims by an unnamed woman accusing the NFL star of sexual abuse.

The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback has not been charged in the current case, nor was he criminally in the case of McNulty. She has a civil suit pending against him.

The current accuser is believed to be a 20-year-old student.

Andrea McNulty: Ben Roethlisberger's first sexual assault accuser.

The two-time Super Bowl champ is accused by Andrea McNulty of forcing himself onto her at a Nevada hotel where she worked in 2008, a claim he has flatly denied.

McNulty sued Ben last year, claiming an assault took place during an encounter he says was consensual. Her story's full of holes, but the new case makes you think.

In any case, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, which is currently investigating Ben for alleged sexual assault this month, has requested a sit down with McNulty.

Her lawyer probably shot that down.

"We believe the facts alleged by our client are already in public documents. A case in Georgia ought to be brought or not brought on its own merits," said Cal Dunlap.

Britney Spears and Jason Trawick broke up last month.

This is sad, but not altogether unexpected news. The reason for the couple's split? Her daily cocktail of prescription drugs wore off long enough for her to realize that she is Britney Spears, and that she was dating Jason Trawick.

Awesome Britney Fashion

Just kidding. The real reason? They just plain got tired of being together. "They were fighting a lot and have not been getting along," a source says of the two.

Thus, the 28-year-old pop princess is single again, with Jason Trawick ending his yearlong reign as her boyfriend and joining a long, esteemed list of Brit exes.

K-Fed, Jason, Justin, Adnan, J.R. & Co.: Give it up for your newest member!

BYE BYE BRITWICK: Jason and Britney had a good run.

William Morris Endeavor Entertainment, where he works, confirmed Tuesday that Trawick is still representing Britney Spears, despite a romantic parting of ways.

Is there a chance they'll get back together after time apart? Spears and Trawick cooled off over the holidays in December, but rekindled the flame soon after.

He was rumored to be cheating on Britney soon after. Rumored.

The pair attended the Grammys together on January 31, and were last seen in public together on Valentine's Day at a McDonald's drive-thru in L.A. Romantic.

"They both just needed to take a break from each other," the Britney source says. "It wasn't working out." However, "a reconciliation remains on the table."

Should they get back together? Is Jason Trawick the right guy for her? If not, who should Britney Spears date next? Tell us in the comments!

Heidi Montag appears to be cupping some serious balls here.

We have no idea why, although they appear to be made of crystal, and we can only assume this odd photo shoot has to do with new "healer" manager Aiden Chase.

Dude probably has her believing in the spirit and body-redeeming qualities of them or something. Who knows. He sees dead people, so he probably knows what's up.

Here's the star of The Hills gazing into her (bleak) future ...

A Barbie Wannabe

Heidi Montag's future looks awfully fake and plastic.

Nice to see the results of Heidi's 10 plastic surgeries on display in Malibu. Also nice to see that husband and fellow crystal enthusiast Spencer Pratt was able to get out of his anger management counseling session long enough to join her ass.

You could say that they're both ballers ... of the crystal variety. Whatever that means. Anyway, just click to enlarge more Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag pictures ...

Can Dr. Drew save DMX from six months in the slammer? That's the rumor going around, and if it's even half true, it's the most ridiculous rehab story we've heard.

Okay, second most ridiculous. Evander Holyfield seeking out Dr. Phil after allegedly beating his wife, then getting indignant and storming out? That's gotta be first.

In any event, DMX was just sentenced to six months in jail for violating his probation. His first arrest of 2010 took place last week after he was busted with drugs.

Seeing as DMX comprises approximately half our celebrity mug shot gallery, he was on probation at the time, and thus violated it, leading to his return to prison.

But rehab could save him yet.

Dr. Drew: DMX's trusted savior and confidant?

DMX admitted to five probation violations at his hearing last week, claiming they were the result of using illegal drugs. Here's where the Celebrity Rehab doc comes in.

During the hearing, a rep from the Pasadena Recovery Center gave the judge a letter from Dr. Drew Pinsky, asking permission to treat X at his facility ... in lieu of jail.

X himself reached out to Dr. Drew upon his arrest. Looks like it worked.

The judge seemed open to the idea, although no decision has been made yet. We can only hope it happens, and that cameras film all of the odd couple's interactions.

Rielle Hunter's GQ photo spread, which John Edwards' mistress was supposedly so repulsed by, was done with her full knowledge and consent, the magazine says.

The weird videographer claimed, following the release of the feature story on her, that she thought it would only include head shots, not sexy, body-baring pics.

GQ is calling BS on that statement.

"Rielle is a smart woman. She knows exactly what she wore and what she was doing in the photo shoot," said GQ reporter Lisa DePaulo on Good Morning America.

What she wore? Not a lot! The magazine's Rielle Hunter pictures show her wearing only a man's button down white shirt, a string of pearls and panties. Revolting.

Rielle Hunter in GQ

How dare GQ con Rielle Hunter into posing like this?!

In some of the pics she is posed on a bed with stuffed animals piled around her, panties peeking out. You don't end up there with no pants on by mistake, Rielle.

Just the same, a tearful Hunter told ABC News' Barbara Walters she was repulsed by seeing the sexy photo shoot and thought "all but one would be headshots."

But GQ released a video of the shoot to defend itself, and at one point a videographer asks Hunter, "You want to take a look at this?" She does. Approvingly.

So in conclusion, we can state two things with full confidence:

  1. Rielle Hunter has no credibility, although that's not shocking from a woman who slept with a married man and helped conceal their love child together.
  2. Somewhere, John Edwards is loving these pictures.

Michael Jackson's mom Katherine insists the recent incident involving Jermaine Jackson's son Jaafar and the stun gun he tried to use on Blanket was an isolated event.

Other reports seem to indicate otherwise, however. From what we've gathered, the attempted attack on MJ's son was indicative of the utter chaos in the house.

Jaafar Jackson is no stranger to playing with guns, according to TMZ, which got its hands on a disturbing video which appears to have been shot a few months ago.

In the tape, Jaafar barges in on brother Jermajesty's room (yes, Jermaine has a son named freaking Jermajesty), with gun drawn, ordering him to get on the ground.

Jaafar proceeds to push Jermajesty to the ground, pretend to pistol-whip him, handcuff him and give the youngster an incomplete version of his Miranda rights.

Jaafar Jackson with pop Jermaine and his wife Halima Rashid.

Jaafar then tells his brother, "Don't move or I'll bust your head open."

He went on to cock the gun, point it to Jermajesty's head, and pull the trigger until it clicks. Disturbing. The tape has not been made available for obvious reasons.

He then drags his "dead" bro by the leg out of the room.

As for the Blanket stun gun incident, sources say Jaafar pointed came at two of Michael's kids - Blanket and Prince - though the family says they weren't in the room.

Much as the Jacksons try to downplay it, officials aren't biting.

The L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services are still reviewing the stun gun incident, but Jermaine Jackson should probably get his parenting act together.

Siobhan Magnus and Crystal Bowersox dominated ladies' night last week. Last night, on the first show of the American Idol finals, the two ladies were 1-2 again.

At least that's how we saw it, but we doubt we'll receive too many arguments. With the possible exception(s) of Big Mike and Aaron Kelly, no one came close to these two.

Not that Crystal wasn't her usual, solid self, but if there was a clear winner Tuesday, it was Siobhan, who gave "Paint It, Black" dramatic flair on Rolling Stones night.

Her vocal range was amazing and the overall performance riveting. Kara DioGuardi compared her to Adam Lambert, which is not praise thrown around lightly.

She was a tough act to follow for Crystal Bowersox, whose rendition of "You Can't Always Get What You Want" seemed to suit her style perfectly. Typically solid.

  • Siobhan Sings
  • Crystal Bowersox Does it Again

It was Siobhan Magnus and Crystal Bowersox's show last night.

Any other week, it may have been tops, but Simon opined that Siobhan outperformed her. A good thing, he said, as Crystal is obviously legit but needs to raise her game.

Aside from Michael Lynche's "Miss You" and Aaron Kelly's tender "Angie," most of the other efforts weren't impressive. Who's going home? There are plenty of candidates.

Tim Urban's reggae style "Under My Thumb" and Lacey Brown's "Ruby Tuesday" struck us as a few performances that could result in a heave-ho. Who knows.

Do you agree with our assessment of Tuesday's elite? Who do you see going home on American Idol tonight? Here's how we rank last night's performances:

  1. Siobhan Magnus, "Paint It, Black"
  2. Crystal Bowersox, "You Can't Always Get What You Want" 
  3. Michael Lynche, "Miss You"
  4. Aaron Kelly, "Angie"
  5. Lee DeWyze, "Beast of Burden"
  6. Didi Benami, "Play With Fire"
  7. Paige Miles, "Honky Tonky Women"
  8. Casey James, "It's All Over Now"
  9. Katie Stevens, "Wild Horses"
  10. Andrew Garcia, "Gimme Shelter"
  11. Lacey Brown, "Ruby Tuesday"
  12. Tim Urban, "Under My Thumb"
