'American Idol' Top 10 welcome Haley Reinhart back to the 'Idol' stage

"American Idol" Season 11 has already seen Season 10 runner-up Lauren Alaina and Season 5 vet Chris Daughtry head back to the stage that made them famous. Now Haley Reinhart, who finished third last year, is returning to her roots to perform "Free," the first single from her upcoming debut album.The current crop of "Idol" contestants are psyched for Reinhart's performance during the Top 10 results show, they tell Zap2it.Joshua Ledet admits that he was a huge Haley fan last year. "I am very excited about watching Haley Reinhart perform. Oh. My. Gosh. She is amazing. I just bought her single on iTunes," he tells Zap2it. "Oh my gosh. She sings a-mazing and I cannot wait to hear her. She was my favorite! Her and Pia Toscano were my two favorites on the whole show, and oh my gosh to see her, it's going to be crazy."That's a lot of "Oh my gosh"-es!

American Idol: We Don't Need a Makeover!

When American Idol announced that designer Tommy Hilfiger was joining the show as the in-house stylist to the contestants, it seemed like a major makeover episode was in store. But as Wednesday night's performances rolled on, the dramatic reveals were few ... http://www.tvguide.com/News/American-Idol-Makeovers-1045139.aspx?rss=breakingnews

'American Idol's' Colton Dixon to Ryan Seacrest: 'Watch it' with the results night fake-outs

It's still sort of amusing when Ryan Seacrest nearly gives an "American Idol" contestant a heart attack on results night. Pretending they're in the Bottom 3 before telling them to retreat to a stool of safety is still funny 11 seasons in. But after three weeks in a row of pretty realistic fake-outs, Colton Dixon is sick of Seacrest's shenanigans.Dixon tells Zap2it that the "Idol" host better not try any funny business when it's time to read the Top 10 results. After last week, he can't take it anymore."Okay, this is the third time he's juked me out, and juked me out bad. If he does it again, I will choke the guy on stage," he tells Zap2it with a smile. (Colton's a lover, not a fighter. He was joking. We are certain he will not inflict violence on America's favorite talent show host.)After that fantastic rendition of Billy Joel's "Piano Man" that closed out... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/03/american-idols-colton-dixon-to-ryan-seacrest-watch-it-with-the-results-night-fake-outs.html

'American Idol': Erika Van Pelt channels 'America's Next Top Model' with drastic haircut

"American Idol" felt a little like "America's Next Top Model" when finalist Erika Van Pelt revealed her drastic makeover during Top 10 performance night.Taking the advice of new fashion mentor Tommy Hilfiger, the formerly blonde singer chopped her hair off (a la Pink) and dyed it Joan Jett black for a drastic new look. Unlike some "ANTM" vets, though, Van Pelt took the drastic change like a champ. "I knew I wanted to do something to my hair," she tells Zap2it after the show. "Ever since the beginning of the competition, my hair has been in the 'It's still growing out' stage. I had it short for like six years, and over the past three years I've let it grow out. The color I wasn't really doing anything exciting with."Besides -- there are too many blondes in the Top 10 anyway. "Obviously, Elise and Hollie are blonde and I feel like, even early in the... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/03/american-idol-erika-van-pelt-channels-americas-next-top-model-with-drastic-haircut.html

'American Idol': Heejun Han explains his wacky Billy Joel performance

Heejun Han has stuck to ballads throughout his tenure on "American Idol," but the 22-year-old picked up the pace for Billy Joel week (not before giving us all a heart attack first).Han perched against a piano and began a slow, mournful version of "My Life" before appearing to lose track of his performance. But just when we were all about to faint from our collective gasps, Han ripped off his suit jacket to reveal a casual outfit underneath and began a much more up-tempo version of the song. Phew -- it's clear this was planned all along. When Zap2it informed Han after the show that that we actually thought he'd forgotten his words or something else equally disastrous, he laughed. "That was what I was actually going for!"Diddy and Jimmy Iovine, who didn't really seem to be on board the Heejun train during Han's mentoring session, were totally in on the plan too. "Oh... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/03/american-idol-heejun-han-explains-his-wacky-billy-joel-performance.html
