After a grueling, nausea-inducing Hollywood week and uneven semifinals, American Idol has chosen its Top 13, who begin the live final performances Wednesday (8/7c, Fox). TVGuide.com spent some time with the lucky 13, and learned more about the people behind those voices.

When will we learn what Snow White did that made the Evil Queen hate her so much on Once Upon a Time? — Sarah
NATALIE: April 1 is the magical day. So much is revealed in the hour that Lana Parrilla says she was surprised the story wasn't spread over several episodes. "You'll meet young Regina," she says. "I look totally different -- fresh-faced, doe-eyed, young, fun, excited about life, in love, and then it just gets really dark. It's way before she becomes the Evil Queen." Adds Ginnifer Goodwin: "Folks will sympathize with the Evil Queen in ways they're not expecting."
I'd love some Bones scoop! — Molly
ADAM: Look for another case to hit really close to home for Booth. When...
Who's that girl... in Schmidt's bedroom? It's not Jess!
New Girl's resident buff lothario Schmidt (Max Greenfield) has had his share of no-strings hookups, but his most recent conquest -- Jess' best friend Cece -- is a little problematic. Not only is Cece ashamed of being with the awkwardly arrogant Schmidt, but for some reason, she just keeps coming back to him while keeping Jess (Zooey Deschanel) from finding out about the affair. At some point this season after New Girl returns on Tuesday (9/8c, FOX), Jess will learn her best friend's secret.
The person who might've been the most dangerous man on Alcatraz may not have actually died.
This week's episode of Alcatraz revealed that Warden James (Jonny Coyne) might be alive -- and that's not all. Could he be one of our Powers That Be. With the return of the Ames brothers (Graham Shiels and Travis Aaron Wade) and Officer Donovan, who tried to track down an urban legend of gold on the island, along with the reappearance of angry former kidnapper Sonny Burnett (Theo Rossi), Rebecca (Sarah Jones), Diego (Jorge Garcia) and Hauser (Sam Neill) were scrambling to bring these new '63s to justice.
Meanwhile, Dr. Beauregard (Leon Rippy) uncovered a disturbing new truth about the '63s: They are healing rapidly. It's just one of the new mysteries that Alcatraz introduced this week. Let's take a look at the others:
This is how confident we were that Tony Lucca would advance through this week's battle rounds on The Voice: We got a hold of him Monday morning — just as he'd completed a weekend performing on a rock cruise — to ask him if his missing facial hair would make a comeback in subsequent episodes, what really happened after Christina Aguilera failed to recognize her former fellow Mouseketeer ("Wake up," Christina!), and whether or not coach Adam Levine is actually a loveable, cocky rock star (or just a cocky rock star) when the cameras aren't rolling.
And, of course we grilled him all about MMC (that's Mickey Mouse Club for those who didn't grow up in the 90s), from dating Keri Russell and making Britney Spears swoon, to his affection for the soap-within-the-show Emerald Cove. In our minds, there's no doubt that it was the Mouse Club faithful that helped send "Tony Lucca" trending on Twitter immediately after he appeared on The Voice's second season premiere. (And — spoiler alert — we were
"So happy to see you finally came to your senses and gave us another shot," Contra Security head Oz (Christian Slater) says in the Season 2 premiere of Breaking In. He may be talking to a new client, Mr. Fox, but the sentiment clearly has a deeper meaning.
"I don't even know if Fox noticed that his name was Mr. Fox," co-creator and executive producer Adam F. Goldberg tells TVGuide.com with a laugh.
Breaking In creator on raising Season 2 hopes: Fox recognizes there is something there
Breaking In returns on Tuesday (9:30/8:30c, Fox) after what Goldberg calls a "rollercoaster ride" back from the dead. After the network ordered six episodes very late into midseason, it axed the...
The Walking Dead
[Warning: This story contains major spoilers about AMC's The Walking Dead and the comic book series that inspired it. Read at your own risk.]
Given recent headlines, some fans of AMC's The Walking Dead may have been expecting the death of a certain major character. But on Sunday's episode, an entirely different character bit the big one instead...
With Desperate Housewives leaving the airwaves in a few short months, ABC may be looking to see which show can fill the sexy, soapy high heels of the women of Wisteria Lane.
Enter GCB, the network's new drama, which follows a desperate (ex-)housewife — spurned former mean girl Amanda Vaughn (Leslie Bibb) — who returns to Dallas after her cheating husband leaves her high and dry. But her hometown isn't exactly welcoming. Rather, Amanda encounters a group of back-stabbing, manipulative women (including Kristin Chenoweth's Carlene Cockburn ) who want to bring Amanda down.
GCB welcomes Sheryl Crow and Sandra Bernhard
Despite the catty similarities, the GCB cast is quick to point out that Dallas isn't the new Fairview. "It's not as broad a comedy," David James Elliott tells TVGuide.com, calling the show a mix of...
Josh Dallas, Ginnifer Goodwin
He loves her. He loves her not.
Once Upon a Time has pulled fans of star-crossed lovers Prince Charming (Josh Dallas) and Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) back and forth all season long, as the couple would reunite, only to break up again. Does the show actually have a plan for the iconic couple? We chatted with Once bosses Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis to find out. (And they answered a bunch of other burning questions too!) ...
