Did you love the 'Idol' Top 13?

I'm going to go ahead and declare this one a definite upgrade from last season.

Everyone can sing, though some are stronger than others. Thursday night's elimination should be interesting. I love seeing the singers work with a stable of established producers and I think it showed in the performances.

So far is Season 10 all you thought it would be? Or is it just so-so for you thus far? Who do you think will be the first to get the boot?

Sound off!

Do we think that will really help?

Vivid Entertainment offers Charlie Sheen a job

Vivid Entertainment offers Charlie Sheen a job

Charlie Sheen may have been fired from "Two and a Half Men," but the actor isn't wanting for job offers.

Steven Hirsch, the founder and co-chairman of adult film company Vivid Entertainment, sent a letter to the 45-year-old actor requesting that he consider working on one of their films.

Hirsch explains in the letter, dated March 3, that Sheen would be just perfect for a parody entitled “Two and a Half Women” that will be filmed for Vivid.com “within the next several days.”

“We think it would be great if you would come in and direct the movie,” Hirsch writes. “You pick the scenarios, positions, etc. The fact that you are the ultimate connoisseur of adult films would definitely work to your advantage.”

Plus, Hirsch goes on, “based on all the publicity you have been getting, I am sure the sales will be outrageous.” How’s that for incentive?

Hirsch adds that although the film may star three actresses he thinks Sheen is already familiar with, the actor should feel free to bring along the Goddesses – you know, for directorial help, or perhaps to "jump in the scene."

"In any event," Hirsch says in closing, "the set is yours...The whole world will be watching."

Julianne Moore to play Sarah Palin in HBO's 'Game Change'

Julianne Moore playing Sarah Palin? You 'betcha.

CNN has confirmed that the actress will portray the polarizing politician in HBO Film's "Game Change."

According to a statement, the movie is based on the 2010 book by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, and follows John McCain's presidential campaign from the moment he selected Palin as his running mate to their defeat in the general election.

Danny Strong wrote the script and Jay Roach is serving as director; the two previously worked together on HBO's 2008 movie,  "Recount."

Of course, we gotta ask: Who should play McCain?

Jennifer Hudson talks family and new figure

Jennifer Hudson flaunts her new, attention-getting figure on the April cover of Essence, but the singer/actress admits she wasn't aware until recently that her sleek physique was such a weighty issue.

"I didn't realize that so many people were watching me or that so many people were interested," says the Weight Watchers spokesperson, who has shed approximately 80 pounds. "Now people come up to me saying, 'You've inspired me,' and I'm like, Wow."

All eyes may be on Hudson, but her focus remains on her family: fiancé David Otunga and their 19-month-old son David. "I want to be just as dedicated as a wife as I am to my career or to who I am," she tells Essence. "I don't want to do anything and just be halfway in it. If I'm going to be a wife, I'm going to be a wife. I want to be all in."
