'Idol's' double elimination night

SPOILER ALERT!!! Tonight's blog entry will reveal the contestants being sent home from "American Idol." Don't read any further if you don't want to know the results.

I correctly predicted that Katie Stevens and Andrew Garcia would be heading home Wednesday night.

Of the two, I felt it was definitely time for Andrew, but I think Katie just never caught on with fans despite her talent.

Not that Andrew wasn't talented, but Katie bore up better under the strain of the competition than he did. He just never caught fire after he peaked during the auditions.

Be sure to head over to iReport where you can submit your questions for Katie and Andrew.

'Idol' trims the list further

SPOILER ALERT!!! Tonight's blog entry will reveal the contestants being sent home from "American Idol." Don't read any further if you don't want to know the results.

9:56 p.m. – Here come the results.

Tim Urban is safe. Of course he is.

That leaves "Big Mike" and Katie. And unfortunately, Katie is going home. Mike is so sweet to her and you can hear him asking her if she is OK.

She struggles a bit to sing her final song "Let It Be." So sad because she really is talented, and I think she sang well on Tuesday night. The poor kid is completely broken down by the results. Lots of tears in the audience and on the stage.

Thanks to Mozart4898 for correcting my earlier comment that Tim, Mike and Katie were in the "bottom three" as Andrew Garcia was actually in the bottom three.

9:46 p.m. –Yay! Alicia Keys is mentoring next week. She's a great musician and singer, so that should be good.

Ryan gets his wish as Adam Lambert is back to sing "Whataya Want From Me." Seriously, if  Seacrest sang that one more time on Tuesday night, I was going to screech louder than Siobhan.

Gosh I miss Lambert. He is awesome, laser light show and all.

He is such a star. A born performer with a great voice. He's one of the reasons why this season ha been such an utter disappointment. There is not a single Adam Lambert in the bunch. No one, but no one, works the "Idol" stage like Lambert.

Geez, I am starting to sound like such a LAMB (as the lovers of Adam Lambert are known). Rock on Glambert!

9:37 p.m. – Seacrest calls the entire row over to stand.

Lee Dewyze is first up, and he says he is having fun. Next it's Siobhan Magnus, who just nods at Seacrest's recap of the critiques of her performance.

Then it's Katie Steven's turn. She looks super young tonight. Perhaps it's because she has lots less makeup on this evening. She tells Ryan she feels like she has grown. "Big Mike" Lynche gets a chance to share some love for the fans before we go to Crystal "MamaSox" Bowersox who has the dreadlocks down tonight. Last in line is Tim Urban, looking cutie cute as always.

First to be announced as safe is MamaSox who gives her harmonica a couple of toots in celebration. Then Siobhan gets sent back to sit down.

Seacrest makes Lee take a walk with him – right over to the seats cause he is safe.

That leaves Tim, "Big Mike" and little Katie in the bottom three. Oh boy, we have been here before.

9:24 p.m. – We go to Africa with Elliot Yamin, Kara DioGuardi and "Idol Gives Back" to visit an orphanage. I would love to be able to tell you what was said, but in my market they broke in with information on a local Amber Alert.

What I saw was touching though, especially when a little kid ran up and hugged Kara. So sweet.

Former "Idol" contestant Brooke White and Justin Gaston perform some Elvis music. Justin is appearing on the Web series "If I Can Dream," which is the brainchild of Simon Fuller, the man behind "Idol."

Justin is also known as the former underwear model who used to date past "Idol" mentor Miley Cyrus. Keeping it in the family, I see. Brooke and Justin sound pretty good together, and Justin ain't bad to look at either.

9:12 p.m. – After the obligatory "Idol" contestant Ford commercial, the lights dim and Casey James, Aaron Kelly and Andrew Garcia are invited to take center stage.

Seacrest questions Andrew about how hard it is to say goodbye and how difficult it is for Seacrest and the gang, too.

Then just like that *BAM* Andrew gets the heave-ho, and Casey and Aaron are safe. Wow, that was fast!

Andrew sings his final song, James Morrison's "You Give Me Something."

Cue shot of his girl crying in the audience as the contestants swarm him. He offers some kind parting words.

Class act that guy.

9:05 p.m. – The Elvis medley was not as painful as I expected. It was just enough cheesy for me.

Come on with the results part of the show please.

Soon there will be only seven.

Two people are being sent home tonight, and I am anxious to see who gets the boot. The show just started, and the intro is just as dramatic as it can be.

Are we on pins and needles?

'Idol' to lose two contestants Wednesday night

Two people are going home tonight on “American Idol” and I could honestly double that number and be ok.

Elvis night was not a blockbuster one and after the judges used their save for “Big Mike” Lynche last week it now means curtains for two contestants.

Watch a discussion about Tuesday night’s performances:

Charlie Sheen responds to allegations of infidelity

Charlie Sheen Charlie Sheen's representative has issued a statement in response to an In Touch Weekly report that the "Two and a Half Men" star has been allegedly cheating on his wife, Brooke Mueller, with a lingerie model.

Jim Carrey issues a statement on his recent tweets

Jim Carrey

Jim Carrey may have let loose some interesting tweets in the past week - first announcing his split from Jenny McCarthy, and then commenting on Tiger Woods's marital issues - but in a statement regarding the recent press coverage of his Twitter feed, Carrey said he didn't mean any harm.

“To anyone whose grievances have chosen me as their cause, I would say first, that I recognize that tendency in myself, but if you knew me well, you'd see that your resentment has been misplaced," the actor said.

"I wish every human being nothing but love and immeasurable happiness," his statement continued. "Now, I'm going to re-enter the Twitter stream and see if there is anyone left to offend!"

Earlier this week, his flurry of tweets caused some to express concern, but Carrey has assured everyone that he's not having a breakdown, but rather a breakthrough.
