Did Ne-Yo's "Closer" help Stefano Langone get closer to the American Idol title?

Eh. Maybe it's just us, but we weren't feeling the sexy vibe he was trying to send out, and his vocals felt noticeably off-key at least a couple of times.

Scotty McCreery made us rethink putting him atop our American Idol rankings prior to last night. His rendition of "Swingin'" was alright, just not spectacular.

It was an odd choice, first of all, given that it's a John Anderson song from the '80s performed on 21st Century Night (yes, LeAnn Rimes covered it recently).

Weird Al Yankovic, whose career comprised of parodying hit songs has lasted longer and been more lucrative than many of his subjects, has released a new gem.

"Perform This Way" is Al's take on Lady Gaga's "Born This Way," and includes plenty of the satirical lyrical wordplay that are Yankovic's hilarious trademarks.

Former White House pest and Bravo reality star Michaele Salahi claims that someone's been stalking her and making death threats in recent weeks.

Her husband, Tareq Salahi, even placed a frantic 911 call for her protection.

Casey Abrams' rendition of "Harder to Breathe" by Maroon 5 was alright last night. He's got a little funk to him, enough to do Adam Levine justice out there.

The vocals were mediocre at times, but give him credit for not holding back on the performance. He ended the song right in front of J. Lo - and kissed her.

Lauren Alaina sometimes holds something back on stage. Not last night.

It's true that, in covering Sara Evans' hit "Born to Fly," she stayed close to the original version. But it's a great country song to stick close to the original of.

Last night on American Idol, James Durbin covered Muse, conjuring up images of Adam Lambert a few seasons ago. Durbin's song choice: "Uprising."

"I haven't gotten to show that I can be contemporary," he said, hoping to escape the metal/hard rock label. Suffice it to say, it worked and then some.

The Broadway musical Sister Act premiered last night, as celebrities gathered on the red carpet for a performance based on a movie of the same name.

But one singer stood out from among the other stars lined up for photographers. That's what happens when Adam Lambert rocks a mustache and goatee.
