Scott Is Sent Home On 'American Idol' - Thoughts?

April 9th, 2009 8:32am EDT
American Idol
Welcome to the American Idol ball! As evidenced by Paula Abdul's formal gloves. A good lead-off to the show with Frankie Avalon showing these amateurs how the old school performs, followed by a surprisingly good group number. Never thought Kylie Minogue's trance-dance classic would make a good pop tune, especially one sung by a group of Idol hopefuls.

Taylor Hicks
American Idol winner Taylor Hicks will join the Broadway production of Grease next month for a three-month stint as The Teen Angel.

He says, "It's a big number, and, you know, I've made some pretty grand entrances before. And this one is probably the grandest entrance I've had in my career."

The grey-haired crooner, who won the TV talent competition in 2006, w...

David Bowie
Here's part two of the best songs about girls with every letter of the alphabet, regardless of whether or not the subject of the song is the same as the title. There were two considerations in making the list: How good the song is versus how cool the chick sounds. See A to M here, and check out N to Z:

N: Darling Nikki by Prince because, if you will recall, all her masturbating with a magazine got Tipper Gore's panties all in a bunch, which in turn prompted the Explicit Lyrics stickers.

O: Ophelia by The Band. Pretty cool song, but mostly because there weren't many "O's."
