:: Adam Lambert will be the Top 8 mentor next week, and will perform “Whataya Want From Me” during the results show. It’s pretty unusual to have a past Idol contestant as a mentor, not to mention one from the previous season, but Adam clearly can handle giving out advice (and if the contestants want the same kind of success on the Idol stage, they’ll take it). No word on the theme yet, but we’re crossing our fingers it’s glam rock. Don’t tell us you wouldn’t want to see Aaron Kelly rocking some serious KISS makeup. [EW]

:: Tonight the Top 9 sing/destroy the Lennon/McCartney songbook. [Buddy TV]

:: It doesn’t matter whether you watch American Idol or Lost on Tuesday nights—apparently, it’s the same show. [Billboard]

:: Jason Derulo and David Archuleta will perform on Wednesday’s results show. David will reprise his starmaking performance of John Lennon’s “Imagine” that he brilliant performed during Season 7, and Jason Derulo will most likely sing his name over and over. [Idol Tracker]

:: Is Tim Urban really that bad? We conducted a “Sanjayathon” of every season of American Idol, and the results show that yes, yes he is. [Idolator]
