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

Burnell Taylor, Devin Velez, Lazaro Arbos

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

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?

Terry McDermott, Cassadee Pope and Nicholas David

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

Melissa Gilbert

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

Matt Lauria, Jason Clarke

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

Michael Jackson: What Happened? Mystery Surrounds His Death

Michael Jackson

Los Angeles police have interviewed the private doctor who was with Michael Jackson when he apparently suffered cardiac arrest — and impounded the doctor's car because it may contain "medications or other evidence," police told TVGuide.com.

The news came as a coroner's investigator announced Friday that the cause of Jackson's death could not be determined without further testing, including toxicology results expected to take four to six weeks. Craig Harvey, chief investigator for the L.A. County Coroner's Office, said there was "no indication of any external trauma or any foul play."

The doctor's car, left at Jackson's home, was impounded because anything inside it "could be helpful to the coroner in determining the cause of death," Los Angeles Police Department officer Karen Rayner said. Detectives planned to talk again with the doctor, who was cooperative and is not under criminal investigation, she said. read more

May 23, 2007: To Know Her Is to Love Her

Everyone was in the house for the grand finale of American Idol, as Jordin and Blake opened the show with a long-awaited Beatles tune. "I Saw Her Standing There" was a premonition of things to come. We drifted quickly into a performance by the touring Gwen Stefani singing her song “4 in the Morning.” She looked and sounded fantastic. Red-carpet tidbits — there were lots of Idols both past and present. However, the real stars were ushered past me on the red-carpet press line at the speed of light, as though I had a form of jumping leprosy. I spoke to:The crying girl.Blake’s dad, Dallas.Writers of the song “This Is My Now” (as opposed to my later on).Sabrina Sloan — simply lovely.Constantine Maroulis — all business, currently starring in The Bold and the Beautiful. Kelly Clarkson rocked the heck out of “Never Again” will I put up with Clive Davis yelling at me; I’m a star, damn it! I can’t imagine why Clive doesn’t like ... read more
