Did you see that coming on 'Idol?'

SPOILER ALERT – Tonight's "Idol" blog will reveal who is leaving the competition, so please don't read if you don't want to know.

I thought I had it all figured out.

I went in to this elimination thinking I knew who we would be sending home tonight. I even had the right brackets when it came to the bottom three.

But imagine my surprise when the contestant who was voted off was announced. I feel somewhat sad.

'Idol' Top 12 elimination night is here

SPOILER ALERT – Tonight's "Idol" blog will reveal who is leaving the competition, so please don't read if you don't want to know.

8:58 p.m. – Despite a plea from Karen, the judges are not going to use their save for her.

So we won't have our first Latino "American Idol" after all. The decision not to save her was not unanimous, and Steven Tyler and J-Lo do not look happy as the judges join her on stage.

How 'Jane Eyre' stars get into character

Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender take on two of literature's greatest characters in the latest film adaptation of Charlotte Bronte's classic novel "Jane Eyre."

Wasikowska, who plays Jane and also starred as the lead in Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland," says that when it comes to getting into character, it's all about the corset.

Read the full interview in W

"Having done Jane Eyre, I realize the Alice corsets were sissy corsets," she tells the April issue of W magazine. "The corsets I wore in Jane Eyre were incredibly painful… you can't breathe properly."

NBC renews 'The Office,' 'Parks and Rec,' 'Community'

Thursday night comedy fans, rejoice! All of NBC's Thursday night veteran shows will be back next season.

The network announced today that they will be renewing "The Office" (without Steve Carell), "Parks and Recreation" and "Community." (Does this mean that the replacement for Carell has been picked? What are the odds that NBC would pick up the show without knowing who the new star is going to be?)

It's also good news for the TV critics, who have been voicing their passionate support for both "Parks" and "Community" this season. (And it also means that Rob Lowe definitely isn't replacing Charlie Sheen.)

'Idol' chops it down to 11 tonight

Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson are looking mighty happy in this photo, but let's see how they are after elimination.

Wednesday night's performances from the Top 12 were just so-so for the most part (and in some cases downright blah), with the exception of a few here and there. As the "Idol"- ators know, only the Top 10 make it onto that tour bus, so tonight will be sad for someone.

I'm going to go out on a pretty secure limb here and say I think we will be bidding Naima a fond fare-thee-well this evening. Going first in the competition is always risky (viewers have a tendency to forget all about you when it comes time to vote) and her version of Tina Turner's "What's Love Got To Do With It" got very little love.

Who do you think we will get cut this week? Tonight's special guest performers will be the Black Eyed Peas and Season 9 "Idol" winner Lee DeWyze (remember him?) so don't forget to join me here tonight when I live-blog the results show.

Megan Fox in talks for 'Knocked Up' sequel

After playing a sexpot in a string of movies, Megan Fox is getting ready to bare her funny side. According to Variety, the actress is in talks to star in a sequel to Judd Apatow's 2007 comedy "Knocked Up."

Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann, who played bickering couple Pete and Debbie in the first film, will headline the follow up. "It is just a story from Pete and Debbie's current life," Apatow told HitFlix. "People really responded to their characters and problems. I felt like there was a lot of ground I could explore with them."

Fox will play a supporting role, and Deadline.com reports that comic legend Albert Brooks is also set to appear in the film as Pete's dad.

"Knocked Up" starred Katherine Heigl as a career woman who gets pregnant by a slacker (Seth Rogen) after a one-night stand. Apatow has said that both Heigl and Rogen may appear in the sequel, which is slated to begin shooting in July for a June 2012 release.
