With more than 10 minutes left in the telecast, host Ryan Seacrest disingenuously asked J. Lo and her fellow judges if they'd reached a final verdict on the last of the three "wild cards" they were selecting. "It's live TV — we just need a couple more minutes," Lopez pleaded unconvincingly....
Courtney Love has settled a lawsuit for more than $430,000 over her March 2009 Twitter comments about designer Dawn Simorangkir, The Associated Press reports.

Julianne Hough has joined the film adaption of the Broadway musical Rock of Ages, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

It only took a Transformer, a shotgun Las Vegas wedding and a Jennifer Lopez emotional breakdown, but American Idol now has its top 13 finalists for Season 10. Hours after the country picked its top 10 and the judges picked their three wild cards, the Idol class of 2011 walked their first red carpet and discussed everything from their secrets for calming the nerves before a performance to their ideal celebrity duet partners.
Returning American Idol producer Nigel Lythgoe promised months ago that, because he was no fan of the lengthy semifinal rounds on past seasons of the show, Season 10 would cut to the chase more quickly. Thursday's episode did just that, and having such a large number of contestants cut provided perhaps the most drama-filled and least-padded Idol results show ever.

Then, the judges would select any of the remaining 14 contestants to sing for their life and a possible wild card slot in the finals. So, who made the cut? Let's find out...
Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic
