Gaga judges 'SYTYCD'

Lady Gaga's turn as a "So You Think You Can Dance" judge on Wednesday night did not disappoint. In case you weren't sure she was there, she towered over the other judges in a pair of impossibly high heels when it came time for standing ovations.

I feel a little bad for "Chicago"/"Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" director Rob Marshall. He did a great job critiquing the dancers, but he was completely overshadowed by Gaga.

On the whole, the guest judges this season, other than Carmen Electra, have really impressed me. Aside from the occasional off-color aside, Gaga proved to be a perfectly competent judge, and is undoubtedly a fan of the show, having used season 4's Mark as a featured dancer on her tour.

Want to buy Sheryl Crow's car?

Sheryl Crow is the latest celebrity offering to help the people of Joplin, Missouri, who suffered terrible losses when deadly tornadoes hit the town earlier this year.

In an effort to rebuild schools in the region, the Missouri native will auction off her personal 1959 Mercedes-Benz in Pebble Beach next month.

"After the tornado in Joplin, I was moved to help rebuild a city so close to where I grew up in Missouri," says the Grammy-winning artist. "My hope is that the auction of my 1959 Mercedes-Benz 190 SL Roadster will bring in funds to help rebuild the schools in the area."
