'Idol' Top 8 gave it their all

There is so much talent this season.

Even the weak links on "Idol" are still pretty entertaining, and I think it's just going to get harder and harder each week to determine who America will be sending home.

This week, we had just about all of the genres represented from jazz to heavy metal, and I won't even begin to speculate who will end up in the bottom three.

'Idol' Top 8 bring it on movie night

9:22 p.m. – Here we go again.

James is refusing to listen to Jimmy because he knows what is best for himself as an artist.

I'm sorry, how many records have you sold James?

He follows his heart and goes with "Heavy Metal" from the film of the same name. He goes so far as to stand up on the judges table while he is performing. This kid has got some serious chutzpah.

'Idol' denies girl moved from front for weight

Former "American Idol" judge Simon Cowell once made a comment about a contestant's weight, and now there's a report that the size of audience members is also an issue.

Radar Online reported that 19-year-old Ashley Kauffman says she was told by "Idol" production staff that she could not sit with her friends in the front row of last week's elimination show because she was "just too big, too heavy to be in front."

Kauffman, who is 5-foot-2-inches tall and weighs 150 pounds, told "Good Morning America" that she would like an apology from the show.

It's movie night for 'Idol's' Top 8

The photo above has absolutely nothing to do with this week's "American Idol" performance show, but I just love seeing punk icon Iggy Pop rock out with some of the contestants.

The Top 8 will perform songs from movies on Wednesday night, and I am guessing that we are going to hear lots of swelling ballads.

I'm still not over the elimination last week of Pia and the pressure is now on the remaining two ladies in the competition, Haley and Lauren.

I don't know "Idol"-ators. It's not looking good for us to have a female "American Idol" this year.  But does it even matter? Will you continue watching now that one of this year's strongest singers has been voted off?

Catherine Zeta-Jones checks into a mental health facility

Just three months after Michael Douglas told “Today’s” Matt Lauer, “I’ve got (cancer) beat,” his wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones, has checked herself into a mental health facility.

The actress, who has been by Douglas’ side since he was diagnosed with throat cancer last fall, is seeking treatment for bipolar II disorder, her rep confirms to CNN.

Bipolar II disorder, which, according to the Mayo Clinic, is less severe than bipolar I disorder, causes irritability and mood swings occurring as often as several times a day, or as seldom as a few times a year.

Demi Lovato on her lifelong eating disorder

In a new interview with Seventeen magazine, Demi Lovato reveals that the "emotional and physical issues" she sought treatment for in November were related to an eating disorder, a disease she still struggles with today.

"There have been times when I definitely have been tempted to get rid of my dinner,” she tells the magazine. “But I will deal with it for the rest of my life because it’s a life-long disease. I don’t think there’s going to be a day when I don’t think about food or my body, but I’m living with it, and I wish I could tell young girls to find their safe place and stay with it."

Prior to entering a rehab facility last year, Lovato had been spotted with marks on her wrists, leading to speculation that she was cutting herself.
