SPOILER ALERT!!! Tonight's blog entry will reveal the contestant being sent home from "American Idol." Don't read any further if you don't want to know the results.

I always knew it was going to happen, and yet I still was unprepared.

Tim Urban has been sent off and I could reflect on what took voters so long, but instead I find myself actually questioning if Casey James should have left us.

Don't get me wrong, I think Casey is tremendously talented, but I have seen very little growth with him. Tim has grown, even though judging from where he came from there really was no place to go but up.

We have lift off on 'Idol Gives Back'

Here we go with "Idol's" annual feel good night of the year.

It's not going to feel so great for whoever gets sent home and I, for one, am surprised that the powers that be decided to go ahead and have an elimination. Just feels like it might be a bit of a downer in the midst of all of the charitable feel goodness.

The show just started and Ryan Seacrest is subdued in introducing President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama's remarks.

Hilarious to hear the president call the contestants his "dawgs" and have Mrs. Obama warn Simon to be nice.

And we are off!

Rihanna visits ER for injured rib

Rihanna made a brief stop at a Swiss emergency room to get an injured rib checked by a doctor Monday night, the singer's publicist said.

"She had an injured rib and went to have it looked at to be sure it was nothing serious, and it wasn't," Amanda Silverman told CNN. "All is OK and the tour is going great."

The publicist did not say if the injury was suffered during a show. Rihanna performed in Zurich's Hallenstadion arena Monday evening.

The 22-year-old hip hop star is in the middle of the European leg of her "Last Girl on Earth" tour. The injury didn't stop her from performing Tuesday night in Lyon, France.
