‘American Idol’: Who is the best ‘Idol’ contestant ever? The current Idols give their picks!
The contestants of American Idol still seemed to be in a state of disbelief when they showed up for our big Entertainment Weekly photo shoot (on stands now!). They couldn’t believe that the show they used to watch on TV in their living room was now starring… them!

Pia & Mark — A Wrestler Hooked Them Up!
Pia Toscano was the instigator of her burgeoning romance with Mark Ballas, and she used wrestling star Chris Jericho to help her score a date.

So Pia — who turns out is pretty resourceful — has a friend who is friends with Jericho, a contestant on “Dancing With the Stars,” Pia gave her friend a piece of paper with her phone number on it, who then passed it along to Jericho, who then passed it on to Mark.
Mark, we’re told, was more than receptive. Even though he has an album coming out Tuesday — he rescheduled a music video shoot so he could go on his big date on Friday.

Reality Rocks 2011 has kicked off in Los Angeles and Zap2it is on the scene for all your reality coverage this weekend. The first event on the agenda for Saturday (April 9) was performances from some Season 9 “American Idol” contestants.
Michael Lynche was on hand with his guitar. His first song was “Ready for Love,” which Idol fans may remember from his performance during the Top 10 R&B/Soul week. Next on tap was an original number titled “Can Somebody Save Me?” We have to say – we liked it.
