At age 16, Malaya Watson is American Idol's second youngest finalist of all time (behind Lauren Alaina). And the Season 13 contestant — who made it to the Top 8 before being eliminated last Thursday — says she strongly considered waiting a couple of years to audition.
"My mom called me and she's like, 'Oh, American Idol's coming,'" Watson, who was 15 when she initially auditioned, tells TVGuide.com. "I was telling her, I want to wait until I'm 17 or 18 rather than jump out and do something like this. But I thought about it, and you never know when this opportunity's going to come again, so you might as well take it and run with it. I didn't imagine to make it this far."

It's Disney night on Dancing with the Stars, and the show wastes no time in milking the tie-in for all its worth, starting with a familiar Disney castle intro. Then, the pro dancers' opening number alternates between feeling like Cinderella's ball and something out of a demented theme park fun house. We're in for a long night, folks, and it's going to take a lot more than a spoonful of sugar to make this digestible. Grab a beverage and let's get going!
