The Top 10 visited the If I Can Dream House last night, for dinner. There was a twitter session, and afterward a lot of jamming.

I watched most of the feed last night, and I wish I had some exciting news bits to report, but I don’t. The feed was mostly really boring. Probably one of those “ya had to be there deals.” Luckily there were a bunch of our favorite Idol reports there, so expect reports from Shirley Halperin (Idol Tracker), Lyndsey Parker (Reality Rocks), Jim Cantiello (MTV) and Fred Bronson (Idols Now)

A couple of tidbits: Crystal Bowersox didn’t attend the party.  Twitter chatter had her arriving, but not going in the house.  eta:  Crystal wasn’t feeling well according to this and this.

Hilariously, Alex Lambert believes Crystal skipped the shindig, because she “hates” him, due  to  some smack he talked to Hollywood Life. (Memo to Alex: It’s not always all about you).

After a twitter session that revealed nothing we didn’t already know, the kids took off to separate rooms to jam. Casey James and Big Mike sang their Top 4 week duet “Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman”, Lee DeWyze sat at the piano (Yes! He plays piano!) and sang “Lean On Me” and “Use Somebody”, and later, Siobhan Magnus commandeered the keys to perform a little mini-concert for reporters.
