:: Tonight the Top 10 are mentored by Usher and sing R&B/soul songs. Although “sing” is such a subjective term. [Buddy TV]

:: MTV makes the case for Elton John to step into Simon Cowell’s shoes as judge of American Idol. We would love for Sir Elton to come on board this sinking ship if only he didn’t still have a career going pretty well for him. [MTV]

:: Former Idols are getting in some major trubs with the law—Season 7’s Chikezie Eze was busted for credit card theft, Season 6’s Sanjaya Malakar was ticketed for speeding, and Season 6’s Stephanie Edwards was arrested for participating in a girl-on-girl brawl. [TMZ]

:: Looks like all the people who signed that petition to get Alex Lambert back on Idol are realizing that the show doesn’t work that way. So instead, they’re trying to get the ousted contestant into the If I Can Dream house. [Idol Tracker]
