VIDEO: Michael Johns and Carly Smithson Sing U2

The daytime talk divas are really going all out this week, eh? On yesterday's Ellen, which was filmed in Chicago, former Idol contestants Michael Johns and Carly Smithson gave an exclusive performance, singing a duet version of the U2 classic "One." This was much more fun than the 'repeat performances' we get during their press tour, and it's safe to say Michael Johns, in particular, would have made Bono proud with this one. — Gina DiNunno read more

Simon Sounds Off on the Finals, Idol Fixes, Boring Themes & More

Simon Cowell by Michael Becker/Fox

Meeting the press to promote the new season of NBC's America's Got Talent (premiering June 17 at 9 pm/ET), Simon Cowell inevitably was swarmed with Idol-related queries. Here is what the outspoken Brit had to say about:It All Coming Down to David vs. David"It's what I genuinely believe will happen. I think you're going to have a real scrap on the night. Without either of them being a red-hot favorite, [the winner] will be [determined by] what happens on the night, and that's what the show is all about."The Davids' Weaknesses"I don't think they've got too many. I think David Cook has got the best voice and David Archuleta's got the teen and the gran[dma] appeal. [They're] very equal."Jason's Surprising Longevity"He's got a great face. If he looked like the Hunchback of Notre Dame, he still wouldn't be there, would he? But that's the music business. He's had some very good weeks, to be fair. He just struggled with Andrew Lloyd Webber and, in particular, Neil Diamond. It almost felt a... read more

Top 4 Power Rankings, Finals Forecast and More!

With your next American Idol just weeks away from being crowned, David C. is maintaining a strong lead in the TVGuide.com Power Rankings, commanding 62.4 percent of the reader vote. Check it out:Top 4 Idol Power Rankings62.4% David Cook22.8% David Archuleta9.9% Jason Castro4.8% Syesha MercadoContrary to the above, however, Jason is likely the next to get sent home, says 49 percent of you in a separate survey. Syesha is far from safe, though, drawing 44 percent of that dubious vote.This week we also asked you to forecast who will face off in the finals, and based on that poll there's a 71 percent chance it will, in fact, be dueling Davids. Somewhat surprisingly, the next-likeliest outcome is Cookie vs. Jason (voted 18 percent of you). Me, I still say there's an eensy-weensy chance it will be David C. against Syesha, if only because Idol does like a XX-XY finale.Lastly, purely out of curiosity, we asked who from this season's Top 10 you most wish was still in the mix.

Idol Boss Talks Shocking Exits, Sliding Ratings

The Britweek Launch, held Thursday night at the home of the Consul General, was a little like a ball: Nearly everyone, including the five American Idol contestants had a curfew— but forget the Midnight curfew like Cinderella had — the AI gang had to be out by 8:30!None of the Idol contestants are allowed to talk to the press until after they leave the show, so all they could do for the press was smile politely and pose for photos. Off-camera, one journalist asked Jason Castro how long it took to get his dreadlocks. The answer: 15 hours for the initial process (for real?) and a few months to let it all develop. He said he was excited to be doing Neil Diamond songs next week and that no, he wasn't planning on singing "Memory" again any time soon.Inside the garden party, where guests dined on fish and chips, Syesha chatted with friends and was overheard to say, presumably about her fate on the show, "Whatever happens, it's all good."American Idol producer Nigel Lythgoe has no... read more

Video Q&A: Michael Johns Talks to TVGuide.com

OK, so Michael Johns came by the other day for an on-camera Q&A. Nicest. Guy. Ever. Really genuine, really awestruck by the Idol experience he happened into, and really touched by the outpouring of fan support, especially since his dismissal. In this up-close Q&A, I ask Michael about why he inexplicably got cut this soon, who from Idol he calls a friend, his hopes for the summer tour and more. - Matt Mitovich

Michael "Shocked" by Sendoff, But No Hard Feelings

Michael Johns by Michael Becker/Fox

Michael Johns was still reeling from his shocking Idol ousting when he spoke with reporters on a Friday conference call. "I would be lying if I said I wasn't shocked," he said. "I hadn't been in the bottom three and I thought definitely the last two or three weeks had been my strongest."Despite his surprise, however, the Aussie bears no hard feelings — at least not toward Ryan Seacrest and that awkward elimination moment. During the Thursday show, the host made the ejection all the more confounding by mentioning, once Carly and Syesha were safe, that at the time of last year's Idol Gives Back, no one was eliminated. Johns, though, was sent packing anyway. With his typical smooth style, Johns said he understands the name of the game is good television, and that's how it goes. "You're in this business and you get it," he said. "I don't hold it against Ryan." (Was Ryan too cruel? Vote here.)Johns' dismissal came after a week in which he performed Aerosmith's "Dream On," fittingly ... read more
