Most importantly, who do you think is heading home tomorrow night? Don't forget to sound off below and join us for the results show.

'Idol's' Top 12 hit the stage

9:50 p.m. - Whenever I hear Heart's "Alone," I am always reminded of Carrie Underwood's performance a few seasons ago, which was amazing. Utterly amazing.

Jacob attacks this 1987 song like his life depended on it. He has been so consistent so far and I was really feeling it. My husband said he reminds him of a male version of Jennifer Hudson and I can see that. Big voice, emotion and range. Love!

He definitely put some "Lusky stank" on it. Do your thing Jacob!

If it's Wednesday, it must be 'Idol'

"American Idol" judge Steven Tyler better hold on to his bleeper sign because Wednesday night's performances will be the dirty dozen.

Well, not dirty in terms of language or salacious performances but hot, hot, hot. At least that is what we are expecting.

Tonight's theme will be songs from the year the contestant was born and we are hoping that everyone brings their "A" game.

As was the case last week, a compilation album and individual tracks of studio versions of the contestants performances will be available on iTunes after the show. According to a press release, last week's album was a Top 10 seller on iTunes.

Don't forget to join me as I live-blog tonight's performances and Thursday night's elimination show.

'Hereafter' home video sales to benefit Japan relief efforts

'Hereafter' home video sales to benefit Japan relief efforts

The Matt Damon-starring movie “Hereafter” was pulled from theaters in Japan earlier this week, and Warner Bros. is using the film’s Tuesday release on DVD and Blu-ray as a way to raise money for relief efforts.

According to the L.A. Times, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is donating an unspecified percentage of DVD and Blu-ray sales to the Japanese Red Cross Society following the devastating earthquake and tsunami that hit the nation last Friday. Those familiar with the matter tell the Times that the donation will be in the ballpark of $1 million.

The Clint Eastwood-directed film focuses on grief and the afterlife, but it does contain a scene depicting a tsunami wreaking havoc on a coastal town. It’s been playing in Japan since February. A Warner Bros. rep explained to CNN, "In deference to the tragic unfolding events in Japan, we have pulled 'Hereafter' from the theaters.”

The Warner Bros. rep added that the opening of Anthony Hopkins’ horror thriller “The Rite,” which was originally scheduled to bow this weekend in Japan, has been postponed.

Kim Kardashian: I never had my butt done

Kim Kardashian: I never had my butt done

The secret to looking as good as Kim Kardashian? Dirty hair and a simple belt, the reality star reveals in the April issue of Self magazine.

Kardashian also knocks down rumors that her other beauty secrets include nips and tucks.

"I've read that I've had my lips done. I've always had big lips. Look at my baby pictures. It's ridiculous," she tells Self. "Or they'll show one picture of me today and one tomorrow, and say I've had my nose done in between. When? Didn't you just see me yesterday? And how many times have I 'had my butt done'? People's logic is so weird. I don't know why they bother! You can't worry about all the gossip."

Kardashian's advice is to gain self-acceptance and know that everyone has assets worth celebrating.

"Find the one part of your body that you love and accentuate it," she advises. "For example, because I have a small waist, a big butt and thin legs, belts work for me. You have to know what looks best on your body."
