'Idol' Top 11 redux: So did we love it?

I'm still stunned over the kudos for Haley.

Sometimes I wonder whether the judges are hearing the same thing we are as we watch along at home.

Anywhoo, the performance show is done, and I'm anxious to hear what you thought of Elton John night? Will it be hard to send two people home this week? Any predictions on who those two people might be?

I'm going to be on pins and needles during elimination. Don't forget to join me here live while I blog the results.

Peace out "Idol"-ators!

'Idol' Top 11 redux

9:51 p.m. - OMG, I love "Bennie and the Jets."

That's my jam right there. Haley takes a stab at it, and my husband looks and me and laments "really?!"

Not my favorite performance. I'll forgive her for being sprawled out on the piano a la  "The Fabulous Baker Boys," but that hard "s" on the "Jetssssss" was just too much. It all felt weird and wrong to me.

'Idol' Top 11 to sing songs of Elton John

How are they going to top last week?

After the emotional save of Casey Abrams during last week's elimination, our Top 11 are back on track with even more on the line because TWO people will go home this week.

That's right, the good news of the Casey save will turn into bad news times two for whoever fails to bring it Wednesday night.

Richard Simmons, Phil Keoghan can make you 'Fit to Fly'

If you’ve ever had to hustle through an airport, you know that flying can double as a workout - though perhaps not quite as intense a calorie-burner as an in-flight safety video for Air New Zealand shows.

The airline tapped none other than ‘80s exercise guru Richard Simmons to show off all the ways one can be “fit to fly" in just three minutes.

For example, if you need to brace yourself during flight, Simmons’ neon-spandex clad cohorts demonstrate how to do “the duck,” where you sit with “flat feet, elbows outside your thighs, hands on your head and duck on down.” "Amazing Race" host Phil Keoghan is particularly adept at demonstrating "the duck" in a cameo.

Check out more of Keoghan's moves in the video above.

Rihanna means what she sings in 'S&M'

Rihanna isn't lying when she sings about finding whips and chains exciting in her hit single “S&M.”

The pop star reveals in a saucy interview with Rolling Stone that those sort of accoutrements are a plus in the bedroom.

"I like to take charge, but I love to be submissive," she tells the magazine. “You get to be a little lady, to have somebody be macho and in charge…That's sexy to me. I work a lot, and I have to make a lot of executive decisions, so when it comes to being intimate, I like to feel like I'm somebody's girl."

Charlie Sheen to appear on Drew Carey show

Charlie Sheen’s antics aren’t restricted to Twitter and “Torpedo of Truth” tour stops – the rock-star-from-Mars has taken his act to Drew Carey’s “Improv-A-Ganza” on GSN.

According to a statement, “Improv-A-Ganza” is “a new original, primetime daily strip series” that’ll premiere on April 11 at 8 p.m. on the network. Sheen will presumably show off some tiger blood-fueled improvisation skills when he makes his "impromptu appearance" in the episode airing on April 12.

The program was taping live improv sketches at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas in January and February, and Sheen apparently just showed up for one of them. FULL POST
