Casey James To Perform “The Good Life” On American Idol On 4/4 -“This is a dream come true,” said Casey. “To be returning to the show as an artist, to sing and play music that I wrote, co-produced and poured myself into, it doesn’t get any better for me! I think ‘The Good Life’ is such a fitting song too.” – Read more at Sony Music

Idol Meter: Janelle’s a gem, but Angie is fading fast – Isn’t it fitting that the guys who fizzled trying to be the Four Tops became American Idol’s bottom three last week? The two remaining seem unlikely to thrive with Wednesday night’s no-ballads theme. So let’s return to the girls — the two who haven’t been profiled here, plus one faltering front-runner. – Read more at USA Today

Why Nicki Minaj Isn’t The Real Reason For Sinking ‘Idol’ Ratings – No, there’s a different sort of exodus going on here, and I think it’s the real main reason for “Idol’s” ratings plummet. It’s the mass exodus of the type of contestants that have pleased the show’s core fanbase since at least Season 7: cute boys with guitars. There, I said it. – Read more at Yahoo.com

Eliminated ‘Idol’ Contestant Devin Velez Shares He’d Love to Collaborate with Pink! – So, if given the chance, who would Devin want to collaborate with? Pink! Devin shared: “I think Pink. I like Pink I love that in all of her songs whether they’re angry or nice and sweet you can always feel her emotion so she’s one of those passionate singers and I think that’s necessary to be a successful artist.” – Read more at RyanSeacrest.com

Carrie Underwood Wants a Birthday Do-Over

“[My husband] bought me an amazing present, but he was under the weather on my actual birthday,” said Carrie, who opted for a quiet night in. She went on to joke, “I do expect a redo. I do expect a nice dinner out at some point. We’ll call it my birthday dinner.”

Carrie Underwood: How I Keep My Marriage Hot

“If Mike ever told me he needed me to quit, I’d quit,” she says. “When you make that promise to somebody, and you stand before God and your family and friends, you’ve got to do everything that you possibly can to make that work.”

Derek Hough Amazed by Kellie Pickler’s Dancing Skills – “She’s got that ability, which for me is so fun to discover,” he told PEOPLE of his country-singer partner after Monday’s show. “It’s wonderful.” It’s not just pure talent that brings the results, however. “We have a lot of fun, for sure, but we also work our tails off,” he added. – Read more at People.com

    spoilers for tonight’s Idol show have hit twitter.Without being specific, I’ll just say Candice is playing it too safe, Angie picked what I’d called a ballady non-ballad & good luck with that, Burnell, lol

  • mad1son

    Ugh. I hope that Carrie interview isn’t as ridiculous as the cover makes it sound. I know it’s People magazine, but still. How many wildly successful men get asked if they feel obligated to stay pretty or derail their careers to keep their wives happy? I’m always a little disappointed when Carrie plays along with this kind of nonsense.

  • windmills

    I think the headlines and excerpted quotes for these things are usually pretty ridiculous compared to the actual story. I thought Carrie’s Allure cover story from February dealt with the successful/strong woman and what she expects from her man issues in a more progressive, non-cuddly way.

    That being said, I’m surprised Carrie went for this at all. She’d taken a step back as far as PR lately (the Allure story excepted), and the tour stories that went viral (the 12 year old boy’s 1st kiss, Carrie donating proceeds from her Atlantic City concert to Sandy relief, Carrie donating money to Des Moines because she wasn’t satisfied with her performance) did that without prodding from her team (long story but the chain of info in these cases was public). I guess it’s a big week with her returning to AI/introducing a new single/performing at the ACMs and so her people negotiated a People cover?

    so happy for Casey i hope he has nice bump in sales like others did

  • tucker davis

    Concerning that yahoo article saying Nicki isn’t the primary reason the ratings have dropped: there are almost 3000 comments already and 90% of them are disagreeing with the author. That’s got to be a little troublesome for TPTB at Fox…not the sort of publicity AI needs in the middle of the season.

  • Connie Stamley

    A coincidence that Casey J and Orianti on the same show? I hope not. He really wanted to jam with her back in season 9. They tweeted each other about it. I just hope nicki doesn’t ask him to take off his shirt.

  • Axxxel

    It was Randy who asked Casey to take off his shirt… and as Randy is stil on the judge’s panel right now… Hoping for Orianti and Casey collaboration !

  • JosieX

    It was Kara. So icky.

  • macfae

    I’d love to see them jam !! Really looking forward to seeing Casey, he is so talented.
    I hope it helps his sales.

  • Axxxel

    Kara only asked Casey James to unbutton his shirt A LITTLE BIT… Randy then asked Casey to take his shirt off…. see minute 1.27 and 1.28 of this video Casey auditioning !! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0qwckKwjaQA
