Panic!

However, if you haven't completed your wedding shopping yet, you're in luck: The Royal Couple (again: caps? no caps? British Monarchy Makes Me Nervous) has set up a...

Season 10 of American Idol has taught us quite a few things so far, and last Wednesday's episode - during which the contestants performed songs from movies - was no exception.

Usually, the constants are eager for feedback and advice from Jimmy Iovine, the uber well-known music producer and chairman of Interscope-Geffen-A&M Records who is acting as Season 10's in-house mentor.

American Idol Judges’ Emotional Reactions To Pia’s Elimination

If you're an American Idol fan, no doubt you probably have an opinion on last night's elimination of Pia Toscano over Stefano Langone.

Both Pia and Stefano are talented (I'm starting to think all this hype about it being the best year for Idol is true - they're all so talented), but I'm not invested in either contestant. I have my picks, just like everyone else. So, before Ryan Seacrest announced the contestant who'd be going...
