The top six sang songs they wish they had written as Nicki Minaj,Mariah Carey, Keith Urban and Randy Jackson had mixed reviews throughout the night. So who will go home tomorrow? Vote below.
The Top Six Sing Songs Written by Burt Bacharach
Angie Miller started off the night with “Anyone Who Had Heart.” "This one to me overall felt old fashioned," Nicki said. Keith said it sounded like she wasn't that passionate about the song.
Amber Holcolm (who likes to eat frozen shrimp…) sang "I Say A Little Prayer For You." Nicki was screaming: "I am bowing down for you right now little girl! You are unbelievable! You are everything! You just became my favorite girl in this competition!" Randy agred: "The competition just started tonight!"
Lazaro Arbos sang “Close To You.” Yawn. “You know I love you as a person but all I can say was no, no, no. That was horrible,” Randy said. Keith and Mariah were going on and on about him signing in the wrong keys. Collectively, they know it is time for him to go home!
Kree Harrison sang “What The World Needs Now.” “You know who you are. I loved the arrangement,” Mariah said. “I’m pretty sure every producer and writer is already lined up to give you material for your first album,” Nicki said. Randy gave a dig to Lazaro, saying Idol is a singing competition and this girl can sing, unlike the last competitor. Ouch.
Janelle Arthur sang “I’ll Never Fall In Love Again.” Keith said it was beautiful while Nicki said it was really boring.
Candice Glover sang “Don’t Make Me Over” and got a standing ovation from all the judges. Randy said it was the best vocal of the night — simple and emotional but “so crazy good.” Mariah “100 percent agrees.” Keith said that performance put her in his top three.
The Top Six Sing Songs They Wish They Wrote
Angie sang “Love Came Down” on the piano. “I loved that for so many reasons. You taped into the emotion. Something about you at the piano — you feel it more. Unbelievable. So good,” Randy raved. “You never lose at the piano,” Mariah said. Nicki said that with the piano, she can win it all because it’s something the other girls can’t do.
Amber sang Beyonce’s “Love On Top.” Mariah said she seemed very happy and like she was enjoying herself. “It was beautiful Great song choice,” Keith said. “Beyonce — you better look out honey child!” Nicki said.
Lazaro sang “Angels” but I doubt it will be enough to save him. “The way the girls are singing is just so crazy good,” Keith said. “It was better,” Randy said. “This was a better range for you. You did redeem something from the last performance,” Mariah said. SUPER AWKWARD!
Kree sang “Help Me Make It Through The Night.” “So beautiful,” Randy said. “I think you’ll be around for a long time in the industry,” Nicki said. “That was a beautiful performance,” Keith said.
Janelle sang “The Dance” by Garth Brooks. Randy appreciated how connected she was with the song. Mariah “felt” it. “If I’m being honest, I don’t think it was enough for you to get a leg up on the other girls,” Nicki said.
Candice sang The Cure‘s “Love Song” to a standing ovation from the judges. Keith was literally bowing down and Mariah took the stage to shower glitter on her! Randy said, “One of the greatest performances in the history, 12 years of Idol,” Randy said on behalf of the judges.

So nice! In a new interview, Rob’s co-star Guy Pearce raves about how talented Rob is! Do you agree with Guy?
Although we still have to wait to see Robert Pattinson‘s latest film The Rover, his co-star Guy Pearce assures it will be worth the wait! In an interview with The Daily Telegraph, Guy had nothing but great things to say about Rob’s performance!
“The best thing about Rob is that he is a really great actor,” Guy explains.”Watching the rushes back, you go: ‘OK, he is just going to be fantastic’.”
“He plays [the character] slightly backward, emotionally useless and really vulnerable,” says Guy. “He’s got this beautiful face so you are completely entranced by that face no matter how ugly he makes himself or how wounded he is, or how manky his haircut.”
Did Guy really admit he thinks Rob’s face is beautiful? We couldn’t agree more!
Guy Pearce: Robert Pattinson Is ‘Bright’ & ‘Sensitive’
Guy’s compliments don’t stop there! During an exclusive interview with Guy in January, he told HollywoodLife.com, “[Rob] just seems like a bright and sensitive kid. So I just think he's really right for the role.”
We also told Guy that Rob must think it’s really great to work with such an experienced actor. “Um I don't know, hopefully he thinks so!" Guy said. "I think it's about collaborating and all getting on the same page. It doesn't matter how experienced or inexperienced someone is, you hopefully just all understand each other and realize you are all on the same film together.”

'Fine China': Chris Brown's First Single Off 'X'
"Fine China" is the first single to be released from Chris’ latest album, X. During an interview with Yahoo! Music, Chris reveals there is a special meaning behind the title for his new album.
"It's the Roman numeral for 10,” Chris explains. “5/5/89 is my birthday: 5 plus 5 is 10, and this is my tenth year since I got into music. 'X' is the 24th letter in the alphabet, and I'll have turned 24 when this album comes out. 'X' is also a metaphor, as in 'ex-girlfriend': it implies you're progressing and moving on in life, not holding on to the past and your old ways."

Justin’s friends have been partying it up at his LA home with his permission, but the Biebs didn’t say they could go near Selena!
Justin Bieber is not a happy camper. He’s tried his best to handle his breakup from Selena Gomez in a mature manner, but some things will just not fly — like his bud, King Kevi, being spotted partying with Selena! An insider tells RadarOnline.comthat Justin feels betrayed by his friend.
Justin Bieber Doesn’t Want Friends Hanging With Selena Gomez
King Kevi and Selena have remained friends after her breakup from the Biebs. The two were seen partying together at a modest gathering with about 15 to 20 people in LA. The source says it was “just a little kick back – and they were hanging out smoking hookah with some buddies." Sounds harmless to us!
But while the party was tame, Justin’s alleged response was not.
"Justin was pissed," the source claims. "He said, 'Yo, why were you kicking it with her? I thought you and I were homies.’ Kevi told him there was nothing going on and they've gotten over it, but Justin is always suspicious something sexual is going to happen."
Justin’s Friends Throw Wild Parties At His L.A. Mansion
A party goer told RadarOnline.com, ”Justin knows about the parties and doesn't mind – but there's always a bodyguard to make sure no girls are taking pictures," the source says. "Everyone who comes in has to sign [a non-disclosure agreement] and leave their cell phone at the door with security."
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Should Justin be mad at King Kevi for hanging with Selena? Tell us, Below!
The ‘Teen Mom’ star has made another enemy, but this one actually comes from MTV. Producer of ‘Buckwild’ is not too happy about the news of his canceled show and turned his anger towards Teen Mom — and slammed the show and Jenelle!
Buckwild producer, J.P. Williams, was angry upon hearing that his show Buckwild was cancelled after star Shain Gandee‘s death from an off-roading accident. J.P. then slammed the network for having programming such as Teen Mom and making mothers like Jenelle Evans famous after axing his show for its depiction of mudding.
J.P. Calls Out Jenelle And The Rest Of ‘Teen Mom’
J.P. vented his frustration on the cancellation to The Hollywood Reporter:
“This is the network that has shows about teen pregnancy. They’ll stick by a show that allows you to abandon a child, but a kid dies by accident doing what he does for a living [mudding] and they cancel the show? There’s something that smells of s**t here on every level.
Since Jenelle is the only mother from the series who doesn’t have custody of her child, it is fair to say J.P. was slamming her. He then continued to say MTV gave them absolutely no notice before the news of his show’s cancellation went public!
“There was no explanation. My job is to protect these kids. This will get ugly.
He was right…Buckwild‘s Shae Bradley also angrily spoke out against Teen Mom through Twitter:
@mtv can have shows about horrible parents and horrible influences and were just good people having good hearted fun and Shain was the best.
Jenelle Defends ‘Teen Mom’ In Twitter Battle
In her fashion Jenelle took to twitter to defend herself from the angry comments:
@mtvshae @mtv sorry if u guys like to party and traffic drugs and have yr cast members locked up. MTV doesn’t like that too much..
@mtvshae @mtv u should focus more on the incident that occurred, not a stupid show.
@patricedebonis@mtvshae@mtv becuz MTV has known me personally for 4 years, we have a close relationship. They kno I’m not a bad person.
So HollywoodLifers, are you Team Buckwild or Team Teen Mom? Let us know in the comments below!
Teresa, 40 and Melissa, 34, have been enemies for seasons, and things are about to get even uglier! At the launch of a friend’s salon, their flight got heated.
“Teresa’s been relentlessly plotting to paint Melissa as a bad wife and a gold digger,” says a source to Life&Style. “At the salon it blew up in her face.”
Melissa has been angry at Teresa ever since she claimed that Melissa cheated in her husband Joe with her ex Brian “Bulldog” Bowen and this was the source of their argument.
“It was the most hurtful lie I’ve ever heard in my life,” said Melissa. There will be “a lot of tears this season.”
“All Melissa’s ever wanted is for Melissa’s ever wanted is for Teresa to admit what she’s done,” says the source. “Their daughters, Antonia and Milania, are extremely close — they’re the ones who suffer the most if the two families don’t get alone.”
The ladies should put aside her differences for their families. This season sure sounds like it is going to be explosive!
What do YOU think HollywoodLifers? Should Teresa leave Melissa alone?

HollywoodLife.com spoke directly to James Deen in order to get the truth about his porn film with ‘Teen Mom’ star Farrah Abraham and find out what’s really going on behind the scenes!
Teen MomFarrah Abraham wanted to make it look like she was dating porn actor James Deen so that their porn movie would appear as a leaked sex tape.
James Deen Speaks To HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY
After Farrah released a statement, James wanted to set the record straight, telling HollywoodLife.com exclusively, “They wanted to do a weird thing where they were going to take pictures of us and make people think we were dating and I wasn’t going to participate in that, no chance in hell! This is exactly what we said was going to happen! At some point, it is going to come out and TMZ or whatever tabloid is going to realize its me and call me and say whats up man!”
James was eager to continue and said, “Then when that happens, I am going to say what it is and that is a porno! I think it was just a matter of when, because someone took a picture of us holding hands and leaked that. Then TMZ calls and says hey man are you dating? Absolutely not! Then they are like what are you doing? And I am like, shooting a porno!”
James made sure to mention that he never reached out to any other outlet. He said, “Now she and her people thought I called TMZ and told them. So she is pissed and then the company was pissed because they lost some control. But the tabloids are their friends so it’s a giant mess!”
Farrah Abraham Releases Statement On Her Porn Movie
Farrah told HollywoodLife.com, “After seeing James speaking about my personal video as a porn and not even contacting me before running his mouth, I have to say I am very disappointed. I personally will never have anything to do with James. I’m a great woman, mother and entrepreneur. As for the company who has a copy of my personal video, my lawyer is taking care of that matter. I will not be settling for anything less then a couple million. I wanted my own personal video made and photos taken for myself, when I am older I will have my best year to look back on. I’m happy to see my 21st year be done. I’ve learned a lot. As my young fans and others should expect I made sure my partner was tested and clean as well as contraception was used. This is just something I personally needed for me.”
Farrah then continued saying, “If my ex boyfriend Derek were alive, I would of rather it had been him with me. But sadly I feel I will never have another boyfriend or love, given that others intentions are not in the right place. But I will always continue living and staying positive. Thank you for understanding during this shocking time.”
So HollywoodLifers, will you watch the porn when it’s released? Sound off below!
With only five episodes left, the drama on ’90210′ is too intense for California alone — so it’s going bicoastal!
Keke Palmermay look gorgeous in this photo from the April 22 episode of 90210, but don’t be fooled; she’s going to find herself at the center of some ugly drama. Keke, 19, is joining the series as Jordan’s (Robbie Jones) younger sister Elizabeth — and a potential nightmare for Naomi (AnnaLynne McCord).
Keke makes her first appearance at a masked ball when the show returns April 15, according to Zap2it, and Elizabeth’s decision to keep her identity a secret is going to prove especially difficult for Naomi. But what exactly is going to go down between the two ladies? That’s still anyone’s guess, but it must be pretty bad, because the April 22 episode — photographed here — finds Naomi traveling to New York City to set things right with Jordan’s family.
And Elizabeth might not even be Naomi’s biggest obstacle to overcome, as we’ll also be meeting their mother, playing by Robin Givens!
Amy B. Harris answers ‘The Carrie Diaries’ finale’s unanswered questions and talks about her visions for season two, in an all new interview! Keep reading for all the details.
Following The Carrie Diaries‘ big season finale on April 8, executive producer Amy B. Harris sat down for an interview and revealed who else from Sex and the City she plans to introduce ([Stanford's] “not the only one”), what’s next for Carrie as she moves to NYC and what the chances are that The CW will green-light a second season.
Carrie & Sebastian: Will They Get Back Together?
At the close of season one, it was revealed that Sebastian and Maggie hooked up and betrayed Carrie. While cheating is traumatic, Amy says it’s not over between Sebastian and Carrie!
“I definitely see a lot more of them [in the future]. They’re not over. It’s a much more complicated thing but you don’t just turn off your feelings for someone, and that’s a very hard, sad truth for people. When you’re drawn to someone, even if they’re not good for you, you feel connected. In a lot of ways, Carrie and Sebastian are very good for each other,” Amy tells The Hollywood Reporter.
Moving To NYC: Who Will & Won’t Be Travelling To The Big Apple
Walt and Carrie already made a move to the Big Apple (albeit temporarily), and we’ll soon see more of Carrie’s friends flocking to the city.
“I don’t think you’ll see Maggie there much, but pretty much everybody else feels like there are incredibly logical ways to bring them into the city and I felt like Walt in particular would be someone who would want to start spending a lot of time in the city. That’s a world he will want to live in as well as Carrie. The goal for the second season is to build out the city for the other characters as well, but in organic ways.”
Walt & Bennet: Their Future Together
Are you a fan of Walt and Bennet like I am? Expect to see a lot more of them as a couple in the future!
“They have a ton of chemistry and I want to explore that. [Having the show set in the 80s], you can tell the story of will Walt feel safe and comfortable holding hands with him walking down the street if there’s other people around to the bigger story of the landscape of AIDS in the ’80s, as a part of being a gay man in Manhattan. I’m excited to really delve into all of that.”
Bridging The Gap Between ‘Sex and the City’ and ‘The Carrie Diaries’ In Season 2
We’re finally going to be meeting Carrie’s friends from Manhattan! Stanford’s name was already dropped in the season finale, and we’ll certainly be meeting him in season two, but Amy also says that he’s not “the only one.”
“I know exactly how I would like to introduce each of the characters into the show and [Stanford's] not going to be the only one, that’s for sure. I wasn’t toying mentioning anybody [else]. I know what I want season two to look like and who I think is showing up, but I always thought that Bennett and Stanford were probably roommates and that’s how Carrie ends up meeting Stanford. I felt like that was a simple and fun way to give the audience a head’s up that we’re going to start meeting some of Carrie’s Manhattan peeps. There is more to come.”
Chances Of A Season 2 Renewal
“The good news is we’re No. 2 in streaming and I think in the world of The CW, they know that’s the future. I’ve got my fingers crossed. I’m feeling good!”
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Do you want a season two? If so, what do you want to see happen next? Sound off below!

The ‘Glee’ gal rocked a sexy ensemble on the red carpet where she totally stole the spotlight!
Naya Rivera looked sexy, sleek and chic on the red carpet at the LA premiere of 42 at TCL Chinese Theatre in LA on Apr. 9, where the 26-year-old star rocked a long-sleeved grey frock. While the form-fitting silhouette was rather classic, the cutout at the chest added a seriously sexy vibe to the ensemble — and it allowed Naya to flaunt her assets!
Naya Rivera 42 Premiere Dress — Details On Her Sexy Look:
Naya paired her Monique Lhuillier cocktail dress from the Fall/Winter 2012 collection with a pointy pair of white Christian Louboutin pumps. Considering white hot shoes are all the rage on the red carpet these days, we weren’t surprised to see this fashion-forward star rocking the trend! The stylish choice of footwear also added a spring vibe to the long-sleeved ensemble.
With her glossy hair cascading around her shoulders and dark, kohl-rimmed eyes, there’s no denying the fact that Naya smoldered on the red carpet! I love the way she kept her neckline bare to allow her assets to really steal the spotlight, while Pearl Collective rings finished off her look. Naya’s dress hugged her in all the right places and she looked so sophisticated and sexy at the same time — way to go!
Her best accessory of the night was definitely her new boyfriend, Big Sean. The couple recently attended the Rihanna concert together, but the premiere marked their first big outing as a couple — and Naya looked so happy to flaunt her new romance, all while showing off a fantastic frock!
