Casey Abrams might still be in shock. The same goes for American Idol viewers, who didn’t expect the judges to use their one save on him so early in the season.
But that they did last week, a decision Jennifer Lopez says she’s fine with.
“We knew that it was kind of a radical decision because it was so early in the season, but to be quite honest… that is one decision that I haven’t lost one ounce of sleep over,” the singer told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show today.

(HMG Celebrity News) – The original Survivor champion Richard Hatch was busy utilizing his same old aggressive and manipulative techniques on the contestants of Celebrity Apprentice. But Richard is going back to the school of hard knocks Monday when he turns himself in to serve more prison time for refusing to play nice with the IRS. This after already serving three years in jail for not paying taxes on the $1 million he got from winning the first Survivor in Borneo. Richard was released on the condition that he file his 2000 and 2001 taxes and start to make restitution on the $2More >
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 >

While the summer was filled with tension and news about the show’s new judges, all involve insist a focus will return to the contestants in January when the series returns.
Do you buy it? Are you psyched for the new season? Chime in now!
Nicole Scherzinger, along with her partner Derek Hough, might have won season 10’s Dancing With the Stars contest, but is she going to keep the object of her efforts, her mirror ball trophy? No. Instead, she’s pawning off the gaudy thing to her mother, whom she says was the reason for doing DWTS in the first place. But that’s not the controversy. Some people — including fellow contestants on DWTS Season 10 — are now suggesting that while Nicole IS incredibly talented, she shouldn’t have won let alone been on the show. Why not? Because she’s actually a dancer on the Pussycat Dolls, theMore >
Not all viewers believe this season of American Idol has been a bore.
But we can all agree on one thing: it’s been far less nutty than seasons past.
