:: Is Season 9 contestant Nicci Nix faking her Italian accent to make her stand apart from the competition? If so, doesn’t she know Southern accents are the bread-and-butter of Idol hopefuls? [TMZ]

:: Carrie Underwood sang the national anthem at yesterday’s game, and she “pulled a Taylor” (ie. went flat while singing live in front of millions, but still remains likable). [MTV]

:: Chris Daughtry performed at the Super Bowl pre-game tailgate party, and sported a five-o-clock shadow on top of his head. [MJsbigblog]

:: David Cook is preparing his second studio album, and he’s apparently taking after fellow Idol winner Kelly Clarkson by possibly collaborating with Ryan Tedder and Max Martin, among others. [EW]

:: Oscar nominee Anna Kendrick might take her buddy Adam Lambert as her date to the Academy Awards. Can he give her some styling tips? Her last few dresses have been sorely lacking in the glam department. [Zap 2 It]
