So we lost four more.

John Park, Jermaine Sellers, Michelle Delamor and Haeley Vaughn have crooned their last notes on "American Idol." Again this week I am two for four.

John and Michelle were surprises for me. Do you think the voters got it right this time around?

'Idol' makes the cut

[cnn-large-image image= caption="testing captions" width=416 height=234]

*The following blog will contain spoilers about who's removed from "American Idol." You know the drill - if you don't want to know anything, stop reading now.

8:54 p.m. – I like Katelyn Epperly's hair. She should keep it that way. She's safe, as is Crystal "MamaSox" Bowersox. So is Siobhan Magnus. Lacey Brown and Haeley Vaughn are rightfully in the bottom two.

Haeley is out. Absolutely the right decision and I blame the judges. They should have held her off until she got a little bit more seasoning.

Debbie the stage manager is losing her mind towards the end cause it's obvious the show is in danger of running over. Or maybe they just don't want to give Haeley much time to sing. I appreciate that.

8:43 p.m. – Seacrest better watch it with teasing Lilly Scott. That chick looks like she can handle herself. Lilly is safe, as is Paige Miles.

Little Katie Stevens is safe too and I am so happy. That leaves Didi Benami and Michelle Delamor. I love how stern and serious all the judges are trying to look.

My mind is officially blown when they announce that Michelle is out. I blame it on that Creed song. I'm telling you, that song can be a dangerous weapon in the wrong hands.

8:34 p.m. – I liked Danny Gokey, but he didn't steal my heart. You can always count on Seacrest for the hyperbole.

Gokey is looking good. Big Mike appears to be feeling his new single "My Best Days Are Ahead of Me." I'm not sure if this is one destined for popularity at proms - or an AARP function. Hokey Gokey went country on us. Do your thing Boo.

8:21 p.m. – You knew Lee Dewyze wasn't going anywhere. Aaron Kelly is up next and when they flash to Kara she is giving crazy eyes. Little cutie Aaron is safe.

Alex Lambert will also continue to hold it down for the Lamberts, as he too will be back next week.

That leaves Jermaine Sellers and Andrew Garcia. Andy ... NOOOOOOOOOOOOO. You let "Idol" get all up in your head and now you are crashing. Seacrest drags it out before revealing that Jermaine is out.

Not surprisingly, Jermaine has plenty to say. I will give it to him, as he keeps it upbeat and gives God the glory. He'll have to continue doing so away from national TV. However, this makes the second national talent competition in which he's been a finalist. Maybe next year he can try out for "X Factor."

8:11 p.m.– Ryan ain't lying about it being stressful!

Tim Urban is safe again? Seriously? Stunning.

And I love how they are jumping all over the row. Poor Todrick Hall has to stand there while they hop over to Big Mike Lynche, who is safe, as well as Casey James. That means it comes down to Todrick and John Park – and John is out!

Dashed are my hopes for a smooth, Asian balladeer to enjoy this season. I did not see that one coming at all!

8:05 p.m. – Yeah, I got a feeling too.

I feel like Simon has been reading some of the coverage of the show where so many people are saying major suckage has been going on and now he feels compelled to address it.

With all of the advancements in technology, surely they can hook it up so the acoustics in the studio are true enough that Simon doesn't have to go back and watch it only to go "Ugggh!"

I'm glad he at least admitted it though.

Soon there will be 16.

I don't know about you, but it feels like we are more than two weeks in to this show.

The results are in and I'm anxious to see who is going home.

Whoever designed that intro gets kudos. I felt like we were about to enter Gladiator stadium. Intense and zany at the same time.

And everyone was so sparkly. Love it!

Designer Hugo Boss falls out of Oscar fashion for Danny Glover

Danny Glover has called on Hollywood to make a fashion statement at the Oscars on Sunday by not donning any Hugo Boss, choosing instead to wear a pin that shows solidarity with the hundreds of men and women who are soon to be out of work at a Hugo Boss factory near Cleveland, Ohio.

In a letter sent to Hollywood insiders and Oscar attendees, Glover wrote, "Hugo Boss suits have been a favorite at the Oscars for decades, and for years, Hugo Boss has been making high-quality suits at a factory near Cleveland. ... But over the winter holidays, Hugo Boss sent letters to those dedicated employees saying that they would no longer have jobs by April."

Glover went on, "the workers are productive and the plant is profitable. But Hugo Boss has decided that it can make more profit by moving production to Turkey or Eastern Europe."

George Clooney, Jeremy Renner, Jeff Bridges, Colin Firth, Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon, among others, were sent the letter along with a pin.

Glover collaborated with labor union Workers United to spread word about the effort, which includes an online petition for the public to sign, which will be delivered to attendees before Sunday night.

Who will go and who will stay on 'Idol'

[cnn-large-image image= caption="testing captions" width=416 height=234]

Thursday night marks the second results night show for “American Idol.”

Two weeks in, and in all honesty I wish we could wipe the slate almost completely clean and start over. Since that is not possible, here are my picks for who I think will be heading home.

She’s utterly adorable, but if there is any justice in this world Haeley Vaughn will be sent packing. I really wish the judges had given her another year or two before allowing her into the Top 24. She just wasn’t ready.

Talking with wedded 'Bachelor' couple Jason and Molly

Jason Mesnick is no longer a bachelor, both figuratively and literally.

The former star of ABC's "The Bachelor" - who infamously picked and later dumped Melissa Rycroft in 2009 - married Molly Malaney this past weekend in California.

Malaney, who was the runner-up to Rycroft on the show, agreed to give Mesnick another chance after his about-face, and it appears that second chance has worked. FULL POST
