SANDUSKY — A former clerk at Huron Municipal Court has pleaded guilty to misuse of property for using a court computer to look up information about “American Idol” contestant Crystal Bowersox.

Karen Grendow is due back at Erie County Common Pleas Court in January for a sentencing hearing, where she is likely to be sentenced to a diversion program for the misdemeanor, a prosecutor said.

Grendow resigned earlier this year for using the Ohio Court Network to search records for Bowersox, the Toledo-area native who was runner up on the last season of the popular national singing competition.

The promotion for Criss – who initially came on board the Fox hit as a recurring – would likely kick in at the start of the show’s already-greenlit third season.

Breakthrough country artist returns home

Thankful is the one word Danny Gokey, “American Idol” finalist and American Country Awards breakthrough artist of the year nominee, uses to describe his feelings on recent accomplishments.

He will perform at the Weidner Center Nov. 18. As a Milwaukee native, Gokey still has strong ties to Wisconsin, despite moving to Nashville, Tenn. He said he misses the familiarity of living here.

“I feel proud and humbled at the same time, ” Gokey said. “People really took a liking to me in Wisconsin, and people were happy to see a boy from the home state go and perform on a national scale.”

Erin Andrews on This Week’s Insane Dancing with the Stars: ‘I Feel Like I Took Truth Serum’

Dancing with the Stars is getting so outrageous that I almost need Erin Andrews on the phone with me as I watch. It’s maddening! With Bristol Palin surviving another week and Carrie Ann Inaba sparring with Maks, it’s easy to get a little huffy. In our epic interview this week, Miss Andrews discusses her love of Kyle Massey, Brandy’s emotions, Maksim Chmerkovskiy’s passion, and the possibility that Bristol will make it to the finals.

  1. The Darren Criss news made my day. To think I had no idea who he was until a few days ago when I first heard him sing Teenage Dream via MJ’s link. Now I’m completely hooked.

    Hope to see much much more of him. Glee hasn’t been this exciting for me in a loooooong time.

    ETA: A video interview with Darren curtesy of MTV here.

  2. I am trying to figure out how they will make Darren Criss a regular if he attends the all-boys school? Doesn’t New Direction compete with Blaine’s school later this season? I really like his singing and his looks.

  3. Kris giving tidbits about future plans from the Together for Care Telethon taping.

    #And I said any more radio shows. Kris: We have a bunch that are pending. I have a whole list. Me: :) :) :)

    #And no new adds date info

    #And when he saw me he said: Hey!! I didn’t know you were going to be here! Followed by a hug. :) We chatted for awhile. :)

    #Krale time. :)

    #AMAZING! Got loudest applause.

    #2 songs. Can’t say more. Sorry.

  4. Thank you for all the info on Kris, tripp. That’s always greatly appreciated!

  5. I didn’t realize this but wow. I don’t know if DC is in NYC tonight.

    #jambajim
    Are @thedavidcook, @KrisAllen, @LeeDeWyze & @TheRealJordin all in NYC right now? I wonder if there’s a secret Idol-winner clubhouse downtown

    #KrisAllen @jambajim if we did we couldn’t tell you.

    #jambajim
    @KrisAllen Psh, I bet I could get Jordin to crack. (And if she does, that would mean Jorjim > Krim.)

    #KrisAllen
    @jambajim if Jorjim were a show I would call it “Jorjim of the Jungle.” #stuffthatsonlyfunnytome

  6. ‘Glee’ To Promote Darren Criss To Regular

    At this rate, Glee is going to make “Ben Hur” and “Cleopatra” look like they had itty-bitty casts.

    They have hooked everyone up but Mercedes. I guess she will get the next shot.

  8. TogetherForCare telethon airing Dec. 4th on NBC (more Kris tidbits)

    #Got pictures of Kris being interviewed by Access Hollywood right before our interview. :)

    #Mark down December 4. You guys are going to go nuts. Two amazing acoustic Krale performances. On Primetime NBC!!

    #After they applauded, the director said to Cale: What’s your last name? Cale: Mills. Director: Everyone, give it up for Cale Mills.

    #Kris and Cale high fived on stage as they waited for their cue. Then Kris wanted another one… but Cale said no. LOL. They were adorable.

    NEWS: I got a little scoop: a certain acoustic version of a song will be made available to fans soon. You will have to wait and see. ;)

  9. RLM1919 also tweeted that the two songs that Kris performed for the telethon are on his album.

  10. Not only is David in NY tonight but based on a tweet from Maureen Van Zandt sounds like David (assuming he’s with his guitar player) is having dinner with Bon Jovi right now. Dude must be pissing himself!

  11. Aww, is David having himself another pinch me moment? :)

    That pic of Kris with Elmo is so cute. Love his expression.

    Are @thedavidcook, @KrisAllen, @LeeDeWyze & @TheRealJordin all in NYC right now? I wonder if there’s a secret Idol-winner clubhouse downtown

    That little string of Tweets cracked me up. Definitely need an episode of Jorjim of the Jungle?

    Thanks tripp- that made my day! Thanks for all the tweets. Love the news about an acoustic version of a song being available soon!

  13. Not only is David in NY tonight but based on a tweet from Maureen Van Zandt sounds like David (assuming he’s with his guitar player) is having dinner with Bon Jovi right now. Dude must be pissing himself!

    Trina, I saw that – and I think it qualifies as a Double Pinch Me Moment -for David and Neal.

    How could they imagine, in the World Before Idol, going see Bon Jovi perform at a theater on Broadway, and then sitting down to dinner with the Band, and Bruce Springstein’s guitarist, and his wife?

    It’s been a very busy week!

  14. Awwww, just saw that photo of Kris and Elmo. That was such a funny expression of Kris. Reminds me of his picture at Disney World with Minnie Mouse.

    tripp, thanks so much for all the tweets news of Kris.
    I have to make sure to remember to DVR that.

    #Got pictures of Kris being interviewed by Access Hollywood right before our interview.

    Oh geez, now I have to DVR Access too for a bit scrap of Kris. I hope that is the one on TV and not just online.

  15. @NikkiBlonsky:
    Got to hang out with the amazing Olympic Gold Medalist Carl Lewis tonight! And Kris Allen!

  16. Two pre-Idol songs from Michael Johns have been released in a compilation called Bands Under the Influence download “Statues” HERE and “Miss You Love” HERE.

    Thanks so much MJ – I had no expectations for this being available here – but I looked & yay it was, probably as they are on a compilationa lbum & so more readily accessible here!. I love Michael’s work with this band The Rising . He has a lot of other unreleased songs – so I hope they are made available as well.

  17. Just catching up. I love the Elmo picture and I’m really excited for the show on Saturday. And we’re getting an acoustic song for the fans??? Christmas present perhaps?
