Were the Top 11 on 'Idol' soulful enough for you?

In my opinion, this may be one of the best Motown-themed nights in the past few years on "Idol."

Or it could be that I am still just healing from the disaster that was last season. Let's not even go there.

It was a fight to the finish. There were no downright stinkers in the bunch tonight, so it will be interesting to see what happens Thursday night during the results. Going into tonight, I really had my eye on Naima and Haley as the weakest links, but each did well.

Still, I'm going to go out on a limb and say I think the bottom three will be Paul, Naima and Haley.

Dang y'all, this season is so hard to call because of all the talent. Who do you think will end up on the chopping block?

Sound off!

The 'Idol' Top 11 perform

9:51 p.m. – Hey Jennifer Beals. I love the random folks who show up in the "Idol" audience.

James takes on "Living for the City," and I don't think it was his best performance. It's interesting how Scotty is able to stay in the country mode, while James can't quite always keep it rock 'n' roll. He ventures out a bit.

His strongest asset is his great range, and he shows that off at the end of the song. Still, I think he could and has done better. James should be fine this week though.

Get ready for 'Idol's' Top 11

'Idol' contestant Casey Abrams may not be in the photo above, but as far as we know, he'll be performing Wednesday night along with the rest of the Top 11.

Join me tonight as I live blog the remaining 11 contestants, who will be battling it out to make it on to that "American Idol" tour bus. Only the Top 10 will be hitting the road this summer, and tonight's performances will be make-or-break.

The group will be tackling the tunes of Motown, and I'm anxious to see how our country boy, Scotty, is going to spin his song.

Who are you looking forward to seeing perform?

What's your favorite Elizabeth Taylor quote?

Throughout her 79 years, Elizabeth Taylor let some teachable and always honest remarks slip,  not the least of which being that if someone offers a million dollars for a movie role, one would be pretty dumb to turn it down.

As news of her passing has spread, Twitter users began sharing some of her more memorable statements, ranging from wise advice to coy witticisms.

"Big girls need big diamonds," Twitter user oXxSamanthaxXo wrote along with the hope that Taylor will rest in peace, while another user invoked her philanthropic spirit: "Give. Remember to always give. This is the thing that will make you grow."

Remembering Elizabeth Taylor, the actress

When you live life as grandly as Elizabeth Taylor did, there’s a lot to keep up with.

There was her heartfelt humanitarianism, her legendary style and her many husbands. But if that’s all you know of her, perhaps because you’re too young to have grown up with Taylor on the silver screen, you’re missing out on “how extraordinarily beautiful she was and what a very strong actress she was,” says New York Times film critic A.O. Scott.

Taylor starred in a number of movies, with two of them nabbing her Oscars: 1960’s “Butterfield 8” and 1966’s “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf," but her career began long before then.
