:: So much for anybody covering Tiffany’s “I Think We’re Alone Now”—this week’s theme has been changed from “Teen Idols” to “Billboard #1 Hits.” There’s good news, though, for Andrew Garcia—”Baby… One More Time” is still permissable! Andrew, time to break out your guitar and pigtails and do your spin on yet another female-oriented pop song. [VFTW]

:: Although the theme this week no longer relates to teen music sensations, American Idol producers have still tapped lovebirds Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato to perform, and have asked Miley Cyrus to mentor the contestants. And that’s the one and only time anyone will deliberately seek Miley Cyrus as a mentor for anybody. [MJsbigblog]

:: A truck driver hauling gear for Carrie Underwood’s Play On tour died in a car crash Saturday morning, and Carrie dedicated her song “Temporary Home” to the fallen truck driver in her concert that night. [Idol Chatter]

:: The official American Idol magazine is back on sale after a three-year break, so now even going to the bathroom doesn’t have to stop you from reading and discussing Idol coverage. [Idol Tracker]

:: Katharine McPhee is certainly making the rounds around Hollywood as an actress, but don’t forget that the girl is first and foremost a singer. After the jump, check out the behind-the-scenes of Katharine McPhee’s “Had It All” music video.
