'American Idol' Season Nine finale begins

Looks like we made it. Look how far we've come, my babies.

That was my homage to Shania "I Think She'd Be a Better Judge Than Kara DioGuardi" Twain.

The show just began, and I suspect that we are in for at least an hour's worth of lovefest for Simon Cowell.

Look for lots of Cowell love on 'Idol' finale

After weeks of more lows than highs, the winner of Season Nine of “American Idol” will be revealed during a two-hour finale on Wednesday night.

It’s all come down to the top two: Crystal “MamaSox” Bowersox and Lee DeWyze. But really, we all know who the person of the two hours will really be:  departing judge Simon Cowell.

Speculation has run rampant that beloved former judge Paula Abdul will be returning to give tribute to her bud Cowell, who will be making his final appearance as an “Idol” judge.

Art Linkletter dies at 97

Art Linkletter, the easygoing, smooth-voiced emcee famed for his long-running hosting gigs of the radio show “House Party” and the TV shows “People Are Funny” and “Kids Say the Darndest Things,” has died, CNN has confirmed. He was 97.

Linkletter rose to fame as a radio announcer in San Diego, later becoming a program director. In 1944, he launched “Art Linkletter’s House Party,” a daytime CBS radio show that moved to television in 1952 and ran until 1969.

His nighttime show, “People Are Funny,” started on radio in 1942 and ran on NBC television from 1954 to 1961. According to Tim Brooks and Earle Marsh’s “The Complete Directory to Primetime Network and Cable Shows, 1946-Present,” the show featured everyday guests who would be interviewed by Linkletter and then be asked to do a stunt. The result for those who failed at the stunt was often a pie in the face or a splash of water.
