We still love you, Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina.
Neither of these former American Idol finalists enjoyed a great Thanksgiving yesterday, as each was given a prime spot to perform – and each suffered through an embarrassing mishap.
FIRST, McCreery stood atop a float during the Macy’s parade and prepared to sing a version of “The Trouble with Girls.” But a recording of the track started a few seconds before the young crooner started to lip synch, resulting in the following awkward start to the performance:More >

Two words: 122 million. That’s the number of people who crowned the newest American Idol this week.
Not exactly a small sample size. We could keep playing the numbers game – how many songs, how many aspirants he bested – but you get the idea.
Some will say Pia Toscano was ousted too soon, and she probably was. Ditto James Durbin. ButMore >
Jake Busey plans to check himself in to a rehab facility for substance abuse issues next week after being hospitalized for alcohol poisoning.

A record 122 million votes were cast this week on American Idol. And, after all were tallied, who did viewers crown the champion?
Following an evening that included special performances by Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony, Bono, The Edge, Gladys Knight, Tony Bennett, Steven Tyler and more, Ryan Seacrest made the announcement that led to screams and cheers from the crowd.

So, THG readers, you tell us: Did America get it right?
The man accused of six murders and nearly killing U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in Arizona is not mentally fit to stand trial, a judge ruled Wednesday.
U.S. Marshals dragged Jared Lee Loughner out of the courtroom because of an angry outburst as family members of the victims looked on in court.
The clearly disturbed Loughner lowered his head, raised it and said what sounded like “Thank you for the freak show. She died in front of me.”
His words were loud but mumbled, and it wasn’t clear who he was talking about. He wore a khaki prison suit and sported bushy, red sideburns.

Josh Hutcherson? He has brown hair.
Liam Hemsworth? The guy who dated Miley Cyrus?!?
These were the reactions many readers of The Hunger Games had upon learning who would portray Peeta and Gale in the movie version of these books. But co-star Jennifer Lawrence can ease the concerns of any hesitant fans.
“Josh is so charming,” the woman behind Katniss tells Entertainment Weekly. “And when you read in the books about Peeta being able to manipulate anybody – I mean Josh could get, well, I don’t know a metaphor for [this scenario] except for dirty ones. But he’s charming, he’s sweet, he’sMore >
Taylor Swift acts like a schoolgirl in her latest music video.
For “Story of Us,” Swift depicts herself as a college student going through a difficult relationship. She’s on record as saying the single and the video are both based on an awkward encounter with an ex.
“Anytime I’m onstage or watching the music video, the first thing that comes into my mind is the person I wrote the song about,” Taylor told MTV News. “It’s like the first thing that you think of is the moment that inspired the song, which is that excruciating, awful moment when you run into an ex for the first time.”

Lauren Alaina was scarily close to missing out on her dream tonight.
The American Idol finalist suffered through a vocal chord sprain – akin to a sprained ankle, according to a physician – during rehearsals this afternoon. It was so bad that Haley Reinhart was nearly called in to replace Lauren on the finale.
But a doctor appeared on stage at the outset of the program and told viewers he gave Alaina some medicine because she “blew out” her voice and he thinks she’ll “do great.”
“I’m here, I’m ready to sing. I’m fine, don’t worry about it,” Lauren said, hoarsely, on stage.

Lady Gaga was interviewed by David Letterman last night, but it didn’t feel like an interview in the traditional sense. The Late Show host and Born This Way singer essentially spent 15 minutes rambling and exchanging absurd comments.
Some highlights included:
- A discussion of the egg/vessel and rebirth process.
- Dave running down a list of popular Gaga rumors.
- Gaga plugging her new album and talking Twitter.
- Dave attempting to talk about her fashion sense.

An autopsy was performed on the body of Macho Man Randy Savage over the weekend – following the wrestling legend’s death on Friday – but authorities say toxicology results won’t be available for more than a month.
At the moment, the cause of death (rumored to be a heart attack prior to a car accident) is unknown.
But we can confirm that Savage’s body will be cremated. Moreover, his ashes will be mixed with those of his of long-time dog, Hercules, who is residing for eternity around one of his owner’s favorite trees.
Meanwhile, those wishing to mourn the Macho Man will have to do so inMore >
Sara Rue and Kevin Price are married.
The longtime couple tied the knot in a sunset ceremony overlooking the Pacific Ocean at the Bel-Air Bay Club in Pacific Palisades, Calif., on Saturday.
Rue and Price wed under a chuppah in a 20-minute ceremony (including Jewish traditions, but hummingbird-themed) in front of about 100 guests.
The actress, who has lost over 50 lbs. in the past year, said the ceremony that she was looking forward to indulging – a little bit – on the two wedding cakes.

Justin Bieber and Chris Brown aren’t just collaborating on a music video.
According to director Colin Tilley, they are collaborating on a music video that is “gonna be big.” And now we’ve got your first look at it.
The artists have Tweeted two photos of themselves on the set of “Next 2 U,” with Brown writing “Judgement day!! Lol” and Bieber adding: “#Next2You #EPIC.”
These pictures likely won’t land Brown in any trouble, unlike another Twitter-based news item regarding the singer. Turns out, he and Rihanna are following each other on their accounts.
We didn’t see that coming!

For the third, hilarious time, Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg went and penned a musical tale about their sexual shenanigans on Saturday Night Live.
Last night, with Timberlake hosting the 36th season finale, the pair revealed the latest product of their collaboration, “Three-Way (the Golden Rule).”
You can guess what it’s about, and the third person involved was none other than the episode’s musical guest, Lady Gaga. It’s pretty outstanding.
Maybe not the caliber of “D!ck in a box” or “Motherlover,” but close.
Susan Sarandon and Patricia Clarkson were also back as the guys’ mothers.More >
