Maybe now we'll finally get some dirt on our favorite cranky American Idol judge.
Tony Cowell, the brother of Idol judge and producer Simon, will stop by TV Guide Network's Idol Tonight Wednesday at 8 pm/ET to discuss his younger brother. (Perhaps he can give us some insight into Simon's minimalist wardrobe choices.) Cowell will also chat with hosts Kimberly Caldwell and Justin Guarini about the remaining Season 8 finalists.
Also joining the party is...
He received countless comparisons to Justin Timberlake on American Idol. He was also romantically linked to reality TV star Lauren Conrad after being spotted at a Hollywood nightclub together.

Thirty-one million viewers watched live as she became the reigning American Idol. But, despite the Nielsen ratings, Jordin Sparks still insists her face isn't nearly as recognizable as her name. Hours before she took the stage in Sunrise, Florida, with the American Idols Live tour, the Season 6 winner spoke with TV Guide.
TV Guide: When did you get to Florida?Jordin Sparks: We got to Florida on the 1st, so we've been here for a week, you know, tanning and soaking up the sun and rehearsing....

Just how awesome were Melinda and Blake last week? Who of the two eliminations was the bigger surprise? And who has reason to worry going into "Boogie Week"? We asked Kimberly Caldwell and Rosanna Tavarez, the hosts of TV Guide Channel's Idol Chat, Idol Tonight and Reality Chat, for their takes on these topics and more.

Phil Stacey, one of American Idol's two Wednesday castoffs, is singing the praises of the lone male left in the mix. As well as, yeah, the other three finalists. "I think Blake is most likely to be the most original contestant ever on American Idol. He just blew it out this week with Bon Jovi," Phil said in a press conference call. "Melinda is possibly the greatest singer Ive ever heard on the show; LaKisha sings with so much passion that it's hard to listen to her and not get chills; and Jordin has got a range that lasts for days, her upper notes have so much power behind them." Phil opted not to forecast the ultimate outcome, saying, "Honestly, I think it's anybody's ball game at this point.
