Paula Abdul is going to be a different kind of vocal on Wednesday's American Idol results show.
The singer-dancer-judge will perform her new single, "I'm Just (Here for the Music)," live on the Idol stage, Abdul confirmed on Ryan Seacrest's morning radio show Tuesday. The single also made its world premiere on Seacrest's show. (Listen to the song here.)
Abdul said she was hesitant to take up the show's producers when they made the last-minute offer. "I wasn't sure if I was going to do it. Timing was of the essence," she said. "I put everything together on Saturday and rehearsed on Sunday. It was really good, and I am feeling good about it... There's a lot to see in less than three minutes."

Kisha Hoffman and Jennifer Hoffman
When you have to go, you have to go — even if $1 million is on the line. Jennifer Hoffman prioritized her bladder over finding the Pit Stop on this week's Amazing Race, and she and sister, LaKisha, were eventually eliminated. But was the ill-timed potty break the cause of their demise in Beijing, as host Phil Keoghan so sternly implied? Find out below, as well as their thoughts on being U-Turned and their take of the infamous Pit-fight with Margie and Luke.
Dom DeLuise, the jovial comic who enlivened such madcap films as Cannonball Run, Blazing Saddles, and Spaceballs, has died. He was 75.
Often working with Burt Reynolds or Mel Brooks, the bearded, roly-poly actor was known for a sharp, distinctive, almost howling laugh that fills the outtakes reel of Cannonball Run — a testament to the joyous time he had with Reynolds.
"I was thinking about this the other day," Reynolds said in a statement released to TVGuide.com. "As you get older, and start to lose people you love, you think about it more, and I was dreading this moment. Dom always made you feel better when he was around and there will never be another like him. I never heard him say an unkind word about anyone. I will miss him very much."
DeLuise's death was confirmed Tuesday by a representative for his son, David DeLuise.

And on the seventh day, Dawn Ostroff rested.
The CW has decided that rather than attempt to give America its next In Harm's Way or Easy Money, it will hand Sunday evening programming back to its affiliates, effective this fall.
In a statement, the netlet says it has been homing in on a "strategy ... to focus the CW's resources on Monday through Friday nights. As a result, we are now exploring the transition of Sunday night to our affiliates."
Last fall, the CW experimented with putting an outside vendor, Media Rights Capital, in control of programming its Sunday lineup. After a few months of floundering ratings — at least one of the programs couldn't even muster a million viewers — the deal was scrapped, and the CW went on to ...
Stella's not out of Ted's life just yet.
Just when you thought she was out ... they pull her back in.
Sarah Chalke's Stella resurfaced at the end of CBS' How I Met Your Mother this week, and at a most interesting moment. Throughout the entire episode, Narrator Ted had set the stage for an encounter which, had it hot happened, his kids wouldn't be here today.
Now, mind Adult Ted's words carefully: Never did he tell his kids that this latest story — in which food poisoning, Barney's 200th conquest and an intervention all led his younger self to this run-in — was about meeting their mother. After all, Ted has ...
Kate and Jon Gosselin
As nearly 60 percent of voters in a TVGuide.com poll said they want to see Jon and Kate Gosselin address a photo scandal on their show, Jon & Kate Plus 8 , the woman at the center of it all called the infidelity rumors "absurd."
Deanna Hummel, the 23-year-old woman who appeared in the photos with the married father of eight, told People there's absolutely no romantic connection between the two. "We're just friends," she said. "It's absurd that anyone would think otherwise."
Hummel, who is single, said she met Gosselin, 32, through a mutual friend a couple of months ago, and the two have hung out a few times. Those instances, which included nights out and visits to one another's homes, were always innocent and in group settings, Hummel says...

The New Adventures of Old Christine
The New Adventures of Old Christine will continue in the 2009-10 TV season. It's just a matter of where.
ABC has inked a deal with Warner Bros. TV to grant Old Christine a full, 22-episode order if CBS opts not to renew the comedy for a fifth season, says the Hollywood Reporter. ABC — whose entertainment president, Stephen McPherson, is a big Christine fan — made a similar play last year, only to have CBS give the old gal another go. The Alphabet was more successful ...
