Forget the trouble with girls. Scotty McCreery had some trouble with a concert stage on August 10.
The American Idol singer took a tumble last night during a show in Bethel, New York, opening for Brad Paisley and falling off the stage around the 8:14 mark of the following video:
Fortunately, McCreery survived with both his body and his sense of humor intact.
“Dagum @BradPaisley pranked me again,” Scotty Tweeted after the incident. “he narrowed up the stage on me for my last song.”

Look up, THG readers. Look way, way up. See the bar? It’s difficult these days on America’s Got Talent because it continues to get raised on a weekly basis. Below, we recount the latest performance show, which included a series of high grades…
Zuma Zuma – The group has a tragic story that was glazed over by their enthusiastic nature. The intro took long, but I appreciated several tricks happening at the same time. The pyramids were the highlight, but they depended on the trick too much with the only variation was when they turned in a circle. MyMore >
There’s no rest for the talented.
Just days after they all performed on the season 10 finale of American Idol, champion Scotty McCreery and the rest of the final four took to the stage again in Atlanta. They were on hand to help open a new Microsoft store in the city.
On a hot afternoon, Scotty performed “I Love You This Big,” “Gone” and “Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not,” while Lauren went with “Flat on the Floor” and “Like My Mother Does.” Haley Reinhart and James Durbin also belted out a few singles, all of which are posted below. Watch and enjoy!More >
Celine… Whitney… Stevie.
It’s safe to say that Pia Toscano isn’t afraid to take on the classics, as she stood in front of millions last night and covered “All in Love is Fair.”
Surrounded by string instruments, Pia belted out another tremendous ballad, one that ended with a glory note to end all glory notes. There’s no doubt at all about her voice, but J. Lo actually offered a helpful critique when she said Pia must learn to “own” the stage, not just stand on it.
Randy agreed, complimenting the falsetto, but adding: “You can’t live by ballads alone.”
Lee DeWyze returned to the stage that made him famous last night.
The season nine American Idol champion, whose album sales have been less than stellar, performed a new single (“Beautiful Like You”) and offered advice to the remaining finalists: “Just remember why you tried out in the first place. You guys are fine, no matter what happens.”
Inspiring words… and an impressive performance? You tell us:

The American Idol finalist made the girls in attendance scream with a version of Bon Jovi’s “I’ll Be There for You,” roaming the stage while singing, shaking hands with audience members, making like a true star.
J. Lo says she loves it and tells James he’s “great,” while Randy warns of pitch problems but acknowledges that Durbin makes every song his own. Check it out and judge for yourself now:
Yes, Ashthon Jones became the first season 10 finalist to be eliminated from American Idol. But don’t feel sorry for this aspiring artist.
“I feel like it was all in God’s timing, and He has something better for me,” she tells E! News.” I’m not saying American Idol was not [good], but something great is what I feel in my spirit right now, and I can’t wait to see what is going to happen.”
Jones did break down upon receiving news of her ousting, but assures fans: “I left those tears on the stage,” concluding:
“That strength has nothing to do with me. That strength comes from God. I know aMore >
American Idol delivered a pair of contrasting, impressive performance on its first finalist results show of the season last night.
First, Adam Lambert went acoustic on an inspiring version of “Aftermath,” receiving a standing ovation for his effort.
Then, Diddy Dirty Money (we think that’s his name these days) took to the stage, accompanied by Skylar Grey, and gave the audience a version of the hit “Coming Home.” He also gave the contestants some advice:
“I would say you get out of life what you put into it. You have to keep on practicing, keep on rehearsing… Keep God first in your lifeMore >
Thia Megia kept it simple on American Idol last night.
The young singer took to the stage and covered “Smile” on this week’s performance show, earning a comparison to Michael Jackson and Adele from Randy Jackson. But Steven Tyler found the rendition “a little pitchy,” while Jennifer Lopez said she found the arrangement “interesting.”
That’s code for: I disliked it.
What did you think of Thia’s audition?

When Paul McDonald takes to the stage tonight on American Idol, he’ll likely be less nervous than any of the other 11 male semifinalists.
That’s because the 26-year old from Nashville has already recorded multiple albums with his band, The Grand Magnolias, and toured a bit around the country. The artist has more experience than most in the competition.
Will that result in a well-polished performance? We’ll soon find out. For now, watch McDonald talk about his group and listen to him sing the same original song that he used on an earlier audition, “American Dreams.”More >
“21st Century Girl” the newest single from Will Smith’s daughter, Willow Smith has reached the web, several months after her first viral hit “Whip My Hair” debuted.
The danceable song is catchy and in this writers opinion not as annoying as Whip My Hair. At 10 years old Willow is already being compared to superstars including Rhianna and we’re sure she’ll just get better as she matures and finds her own voice.
Her new single debuted on Ryan Seacrest’s show on Monday morning and just like her first single it’s already spread across the web at breakneck speeds.
Here’s the song:
