American Idol Backstage Report: Why Casey Was Hospitalized

For the second time in two weeks, American Idol's Casey Abrams has been hospitalized for stomach pain, and according to show sources, the problem is bleeding ulcers. "That poor guy's in a world of hurt," says one source.

After thrilling the judges with his rendition of Joe Cocker's "With A Little Help From My Friends" on Wednesday, Abrams was M.I.A. from last night's results show... read more

Watercooler: Casey Abrams Shows What Idols Are Made Of

Lucky 13? Maybe not so much, Randy.

Last night, American Idol's Top 13 took the stage for their first performance show and, well, let's just say not all wannabes are created equal. Some were good, some were grisly, but only a handful were great. And of them, the most memorable was easily Casey Abrams.

Taking on Joe Cocker's "With a Little Help from My Friends," the fuzzy goofball with the passing resemblance to... read more

Dispatches from Anderson Cooper

Whether he's keeping 'em honest on his nightly newsmagazine, Anderson Cooper 360 (10 pm/ET on CNN), or tackling personal demons amid the horrors of Iraq and Katrina in his new book, Dispatches from the Edge, Anderson Cooper has a style all his own. TV Guide: I spent the weekend reading your book and let me tell you, it's pretty dark. Working out some issues here, huh?Cooper: [Laughs] Well, yeah... I guess. TV Guide: Of course, between covering wars and natural disasters, this has been a tough year for you.Cooper: read more

During every Tuesday performance...

During every Tuesday performance show, I find myself wondering what Dave Navarro is whispering to INXS guitarist Tim Farriss — who, incidentally, is looking more and more like Sammy Hagar to me. The two of them are often seen chatting in a damn-near huddled embrace. Maybe Dave's asking him what kind of pomade he uses? Or if he's seen Eddie Van Halen lately? Most likely, though, he's asking Tim the same question I asked myself last night: Can you believe how good the contestants have become? Those performances were so solid that I'd have paid top ticket price (including those obscene Ticketmaster surcharges) to see them live. Here's who rocked what: MiG: Mighty MiG's take on "We Will Rock You" is some killer Queen for sure. And why wouldn't it be? The guy's been a regular performer in the London production of the Queen musical. Almost seems unfair to the others, doesn't it? But, hey, no one ever said rock and roll was fair. Look no fu read more

I have been trying for a long ...

Question: I have been trying for a long time to get a song that was played in an episode of Magnum P.I. The song is played when Thomas is looking at his brother's name on the Vietnam Memorial. I believe it was sung by Joe Cocker. Could you please find out the title of this wonderful song for me?

Answer: And help maintain the Hawaiian flavor set by this column's lead question? But of course.

You're thinking of the Season 6 episode "Going Home," in which Thomas Magnum (Tom Selleck) goes home to Virginia for his grandfather's funeral. The song in question is Cocker's version of the Bob Dylan song "I Shall Be Released," which has been covered by such musical notables as Joan Baez, the Box Tops, the Flying Burrito Brothers, the Hollies, Rick Nelson, Aaron Neville, Peter, Paul &a read more
