Where do ex-American Idol stars go to die? The mall. Behind-the-Scenes with American Idol, a 14-city, 21-mall tour starring such Idol alums as Ejay Day and Vanessa Olivarez, kicks off Saturday at the Roosevelt Field Mall on Long Island.

Meanwhile, USA Today reports that Codemasters is releasing an American Idol video game this fall that will feature computer-generated likenesses of judges Paula Abdul, Simon Cowell and Randy Jackson. Abdul's CGI alter ego will be programmed to utter just three words: "You were amazing!"
