‘American Idol’: 6 Things You Didn’t See on ’80s Night – 1. Before any of the contestants performed their ’80s selections, the audience sang — in unison. Their song choice? A classic that is over 100 years old: “Happy Birthday to You.” It was sung to C. J. Harris’ mother, Stephanie, who was indeed celebrating a birthday on April 9. Asked if he had plans to celebrate his mother’s birthday, C. J. told THR: “I’m going to take her to the Grove to get something to eat.” Had he picked the restaurant yet? “Wherever she wants to go,” he smiled. – Read more at The Hollywood Reporter

David Cook on his ‘Idol’ return and why the ’80s rocked– What was it like coming back as a mentor? Oddly less stressful, I enjoyed coming out and not worrying if my voice was going to crack and all that stuff. I was unsure going in what the vibe was going to be like, the contestants’ vibes can be a little different. But the contestants this year were great, they were very open to learning. No one was set in their ways, which was great. I did my work going in and the thing that I noticed is that they all have all the tools, but maybe just don’t know how to use them all. It made my job really easy, I have to say. Fox and Idol both made me look pretty good. – Read more at Entertainment Weekly

Illness Almost Keeps Two American Idol Singers from Performing – Johnson wasn’t alone. Dexter Roberts also fell ill this past week. “I’m glad they didn’t show the whole clip of me at rehearsal because it was bad,” said Roberts, 22. “I got in there and started singing in the bathroom just to warm myself up, and I cracked. It was bad.” But with some help, Roberts was back in good health before Wednesday’s show. “That doctor had the magic touch,” he said. “I don’t know what I would have done without him. They would have had to play my iTunes track, and I would just have had to lip-synch or something, I guess.” – Read more at

‘Survivor: Cagayan’s’ Morgan McLeod was surprised Kass didn’t flip back – Were you surprised Kass stuck with her new alliance and voted you out? You know, I was surprised, because she prides herself on being this game-changer, this play-maker, who just does great things for her game and I really think that voting me out did nothing for her game. I think it made her more comfortable — she wasn’t so upset all the time because I was around and she had to look at me — but she should have tried to take out a power player. I just think it was kind of a waste last night. Tony should have known better, voting me out was a waste of time. But he wanted to keep Kass comfortable. Kass is so irrational and erratic at times and he knew that I kept her on edge, so I had to go home. He had to keep the camp harmonious and I did not do that. – Read more at Zap2it
