American Idol: Which Contestant(s) Were Told to "Get Off the Stage"?

Have the guys just given up on American Idol? After all, judge Nicki Minaj has said publicly that the guys have no shot at winning, and Randy Jackson has hinted as much during the shows. And a group number by the three remaining guys in the competition — Lazaro Arbos, Devin Velez and Burnell Taylor — to close the evening could only be described as an act of resignation.

Bobby Rogers, Co-Founder of Motown Group the Miracles, Dies at 73

Bobby Rogers, who helped form the Motown group the Miracles along with Smokey Robinson, died Sunday in Detroit after a lengthy illness, Reuters reports. He was 73.

The Miracles were originally a quintet of high school performers called the Five Chimes that formed in the mid-1950s. They changed their name to the Matadors after several personnel changes, including when Claudette Rogers — Bobby's first cousin and Robinson's later wife — joined as the only female vocalist. Rogers was the tenor of the Miracles, while Robinson was lead vocalist, Warren "Pete" Moore was... read more

The Voice: Who Won Season 3?

In the words of coach Adam Levine, Tuesday's finale for The Voice was "bittersweet."

Dancing's Melissa Gilbert: It's Hard Not to Find the Judges' Scores Disheartening

When Melissa Gilbert and Maksim Chmerkovskiy were declared safe on Dancing with the Stars last week, the Little House on the Prairie alum let out a scream and then got bleeped. "I cussed at Maks," Gilbert tells TVGuide.com. "I got mad at Maks because he had whispered in my ear, 'Get ready to [do the Dance] Duel.' I think I said, 'Goddammit! You scared me!' That's when they bleeped me." Bleep or no bleep, Gilbert is thrilled to not only still be in the competition after suffering a mild concussion and whiplash two weeks ago, but also to have avoided the bottom two Dance Duel despite having the second lowest-score. "That's all thanks to our fans," Gilbert says. See what else she has to say about her stagnant scores, the "mixed message" from the judges and why she cries so much.

Matt's Picks: February 28-March 3

The Chicago Code (Monday, 9/8c, Fox)
As often happens in the best crime dramas, the bad guy often gets some of the meatiest material. And Ronin Gibbons, the Chicago Alderman played so deliciously by Delroy Lindo, is no ordinary adversary. We get a better sense of what makes him tick in this episode, when the powerful politician is confronted by an armed teenage robber, causing Gibbons to look back on his own upbringing, back before he became so cynical about the city's corrupt ways. In another storyline, a bomber blows up a city building and promises more mayhem, putting a ticking clock on Jarek and Caleb's efforts to track down the culprit. This situation is not unlike the dilemma on ABC's Castle an hour later (10/9c), in the conclusion of a tense two-parter that finds Beckett and Castle teaming up with a fed (Adrian Pasdar) to avert a terrorist calamity.... read more
