The new season begins on Monday, and I’ll be posting live blogs of Monday’s performance show, and the results news on Tuesday.

Singer-songwriter Jewel and Access Hollywood’s Nancy O’Dell have both dropped out of the competition due to pre-show injuries.   Holly Madison, who is reportedly the ex-girlfriend of Hugh Heffner, and star of   some lam-0 reality show about living in the Heff mansion called “The Girls Next Door, ” is rumored to be joining the cast.

Update: Jilted bachlorette Melissa Rycroft is reported to be taking Nancy O’Dell’s place.
