Shawn Johnson won with the smallest margin of victory in Dancing with the Stars history, so it was fitting she was also the smallest dancer. Armed with a killer Paso Doble, and a perfect freestyle and cha-cha, Johnson triumphed over season-long front-runner Gilles Marini by less than one percent. "It's slowly starting to sink in. I couldn't believe we did it at first," Johnson tells TVGuide.com. The gymnast is the third Olympic champion to add a Mirrorball trophy to his or her list of accomplishments, but does she plan to return to winning medals? Find out about her post-Dancing plans, as well as her thoughts on her last dances and near wardrobe malfunction.
Heath Ledger's final performance was screened at the Cannes Film Festival with a special dedication to the late star.
Ledger stars as Tony, a man who befriends a mysterious theater troupe that can travel to fantasy worlds, in Terry Gilliam's The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus. Ledger died in January 2008 from an accidental overdose after completing a third of the film. Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell and Jude Law stepped in to play three incarnations of Ledger's character.
"I started calling friends — Johnny Depp, and he said ...
David Hasselhoff and Hayden Panettiere
Some actors just can't be satisfied with good looks, money and fame. They have to sing too. For every Frank Sinatra or Jamie Foxx — stars who excel in both fields — there's a one-talent person who should have stuck to memorizing his or her lines. (We'll soon find out if Gossip Girl Leighton Meester is the next double-threat or just another Heidi Montag, whose "Sex Ed," we could do without.) Check out these 13 music videos and share your top picks.

Adam Lambert, Kris Allen
"You know, there are probably people who are better than me," said Kris Allen when the American Idol judges asked him if he was the best singer in the country during his Louisville, Ky., audition. And though the humble boy next door has now been named the best singer in the country — by Idol voters, at least — he hasn't really changed his tune.
"Adam deserved this. I'm sorry," Allen said, just seconds after Ryan Seacrest named him the eighth American Idol. It was a major upset in a voting pool of nearly 100 million votes. Allen's shock over having bested season-long frontrunner Adam Lambert was completely genuine, and it was nothing new. We saw that same look when he made it into the Top 3.
"I'm always surprised, man," Allen told Entertainment Weekly. "For me, making it through each week — everyone is so talented, and, I don't know, to make it through each week is crazy."
So how did this guy who viewers barely even glimpsed before it was down to 36 come out on top? "That's kinda who I am ...
