Did the 'Idol' Top 9 rock you out?

The show ended on a wild note with all the contestants dancing around like mad on the stage.

The folks in the picture above seemed like they thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Good night to be an "Idol" judge and mentor.

What did you think about the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame tunes? Did the contestants move you?

'Idol Top 9' perform Rock Hall of Fame hits

9:22 p.m. – Paul closes out the show with Johnny Cash's "Folsom Prison Blues."

Jimmy tells him he needs to sing it crazy. I'm not sure how crazy he got, but it was rockabilly fine with him on that guitar. I felt like I was for real at a concert.

Wait, did Paul just bring it? I'm going to have to rewind the DVR and peep that again.

A New Plan on 'Parenthood'

The plan was the thing on the new episode of "Parenthood."  Old plans not working out, new plans that have no hope of working out and parents' plans not working out for their kids.

Cosby is in an empty house pouring his heart out to someone.  Looks like a real estate agent.  I say "looks like" because why would he be telling all his business to a real estate agent?  And he couldn’t really be trying to buy a house while Jasmine is barely talking to him, could he?

Of course he is.  He really thinks buying a whole house will convince the woman he cheated on to come back to him.  And, for some reason, Crosby thinks telling this plan to Adam is a good idea.  Adam doesn’t want to talk to him, but he finds it in himself to tell Crosby what a stupid idea it is. Sarah was a bit easier on him about it, but not by much.
