BWW Reviews: AMERICAN IDOL Winner Phillip Phillips Chats About his IDOL Experiences and More – Both my sisters sing. My whole family sings and plays some kind of instrument. Both of my sisters started playing way earlier then I started singing. I didn’t start singing until I was about 18. They started singing a lot younger. They have a lot better voices than I do. They will always tell me whenever I sound bad or not. It’s good to have them there. – Read more at Broadway World

‘American Idol’ finalist Jason Castro talks locks – There are a few things “American Idol” fans will always remember about Jason Castro. The singer’s memorable performances of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” and the ukulele-inspired version of “Over the Rainbow” during his turn on “Idol’s” seventh season are two. His dreadlocks are another. Today, five years after his time on “Idol,” it seems people are still interested in those locks. A Tweet, posted on his website, had a female fan wanting to run her fingers through his hair. “Yes, it happens a lot,” Castro said with a chuckle. – Read more at HamptonRoads

Stacy Francis Still Feels Misunderstood + Her New Reality Show!

X Factor’s Stacy Francis, has a reality show?

Demi Lovato Would ‘Love’ to Return to ‘X Factor’ – Demi told Renee she would “love” to return to “X Factor” if her schedule allows. “I’m focusing on my music this year, so it’s going to be a lot of touring, a lot of promoting of my album… but I would love to. Obviously, if they asked for me to come back, I’d say yes.” With Britney Spears exiting the competition show, she would love to see another superstar take her place. “I would love to see Lady Gaga. I don’t know if that is possible or not,” she said. Demi is also on the mend. She broke her leg after her roommate “Pledged” the floor. “I slipped and fell in my living room and, God bless my roommate, but she’s not used to cleaning and so she actually “Pledged” the floors… Needless to say that didn’t go very well.” – See the Video at ExtraTV

Carly Rae Jepsen Reveals Why She’s Heartbroken on New Single ‘Tonight I’m Getting Over You’ – Heartbreak was far from the theme of Carly Rae Jepsen’s catchy, career-launching Grammy-nominated radio hit, “Call Me Maybe” – but in her latest single, the starlet touches on romance gone wrong. Reliving the past failed relationship that inspired “Tonight I’m Getting Over You,” Jepsen, 27, recently explained at PEOPLE’s pre-Grammy soiree at Sayers Club in Hollywood, “As an artist, it’s fun to explore [my] many sides and sort of go through my experience with love in a more personal way. I hope you haven’t experienced it, but I certainly have had that relationship that is on-again, off-again and good and bad.” – Read more at

Matthew Morrison on Will’s Wedding, a “Big Feud” and His “Rejuvenated” Return to Glee – Last week, millions of Glee fans were shocked — and more than a little horrified — to see Finn (Cory Monteith) lay one on Emma (Jayma Mays) days before she ties the knot. And they weren’t alone. “I couldn’t believe it. I was like, ‘What happened? What did he do?’ It just didn’t make any sense,” Matthew Morrison tells “It still kind of doesn’t make sense in my mind, but a lot of things in this show are kind of funny.” Despite the brief smooch between the bride and the best man, Thursday’s special Valentine’s Day episode (9/8c on Fox), entitled “I Do,” will feature the long-awaited wedding of Wemma, one of Glee’s most beloved on-and-off couples. “It was kind of messed up, but it leaves room for a lot of drama and tension,” Morrison says of the kiss. “I think the wedding is going to go pretty smoothly, but I think there will be some aftermath in some episodes to come. … It’s going to be a nice big feud for a couple episodes.” – Read more at TV Guide

Connie Britton Is a Late Bloomer – Connie Britton got over it a long time ago, the part that got away. But it’s a good story, and she still tells it with feeling: The year was 1995. Edward Burns, who had just directed her (and starred in) “The Brothers McMullen,” reached into his backpack one night over dinner and handed her a script that Cameron Crowe had sent him to read. Burns wasn’t interested himself, wanting to act in his own films instead. But he thought Britton was perfect for the romantic lead. – Read more at NYTimes
