On last night’s American Idol, the final six competitors belted their way through the Bacharach songbook and chose songs they wished they’d written, but the moment of the night came directly after the performance of the night, when judge Mariah Carey left her post to shower contestant Candice Glover in glitter.

Winter is finally over and spring is officially here! The sun is out and temperatures are rising. It’s going to be 80 degrees in New York City today and we couldn’t be happier to see the sunlight after so many cold and dreary months. To celebrate the return of sunlight and sunshine and general good cheer, we’ve put together a playlist of our favorite songs (including tracks from Weezer, Lily Allen, Natasha Bedingfield and Stevie Wonder) that look on the “sunny” side of life.
Is Fleetwood Mac finally dropping new music this week? Is Avril Lavigne sporting a new mature look for her latest music video? And why isn’t Taylor Swift stressing out about her love life? All this in today’s Last Lap.
Last night, Phoenix returned to Saturday Night Live and rocked 30 Rock out with their new singles, “Entertainment” and “Trying To Be Cool/Drakkar Noir”. The last time Phoenix played Studio 8H, they were asked to push out their set and play more songs, but as they told Entertainment Weekly, they didn’t want to. Last night, it seems two performances (of three new songs!) were more than enough to bring the house down.
We’ve loved Adam Lambert ever since we saw him kill it in his very first audition for American Idol all those years ago, so we’re especially sad to find out that he and his long-time love, Sauli Koskinen have split up.
Lambert revealed the two had parted in an interview with SFGN, adding that “Sauli and I remain really good friends, and I know it’s a cliché thing to say. But it’s totally true. I just gave him a coffee and bagel earlier today. He’s a great person and we’ve had an amazing couple of years together. Things have just run their course.”
Why did Rihanna literally put her butt on the line on Rodeo Drive? Does Britney Spears want to have babies with her brand new boyfriend? All this, plus why is Selena Gomez‘s new single shaping up to be “surprising”?
Is Jessica Simpson ever going to marry beau Eric Johnson? Is Adele going to give us a glimpse of her baby boy? What else besides singer, songwriter and actress is Kate Nash adding to her resume? All this in today’s Last Lap.
Last night, classic Boston boy band New Kids On The Block stormed the stage in New York City–and halfway through the set, Jonathan Knight walked off. Billboard reported that fans pleaded and screamed for his return, but to no avail. Later, Knight tweeted, “I’m sorry……” . In the past Knight has spoken openly about his struggles with crippling anxiety, and during last night’s set he seemed rattled, out of synch and at one point, was distracted by a cell phone call on stage.
