Remember, "American Idol" returns tonight and Thursday this week. Both episodes start at 8 p.m. on Fox.
Here is the latest gossip:
Nick Mitchell/Norman Gentle gave an interview to his hometown paper, where he talks about how Ryan Seacrest smells like money. This Nashville blog tackles the mystery of the disappearing Ricky Braddy fan site. The Braddy Bunch site reportedly received a "cease and desist" letter from AI execs after Ricky's fan club got air time on last week's episode.
Finally, do you think AI producers are giving too much air time to Danny Gokey? That question has surfaced on many AI blogs lately, with writers suggesting the possibility of a brewing backlash.

Gokey really hasn't wowed with his vocals, but it sems he deserves to stick around.
Here is the rundown of performers this week:
Adam Lambert: He's the night's token "theater" guy, thanks to appearances in shows like "Wicked."
Allison Iraheta: A teen singer who has already won a Telemundo singing competition.
Matt Breitzke: A working-class welder and family man.
Jasmine Murray: A teen with a large family and standout vocals.
Megan Corkrey: A mom and divorcee who infuses songs with a unique jazzy twist.
Kai Kalama: A guy who gets back story appeal for taking care of his sick mom.
Matt Giraud: A dueling pianos player from Kalamazoo. Mishavonna Henson: A teen with a background in acting, including a guest spot on "Frasier." Jesse Langseth: The sister of Grammy-winning blues artist Jonny Lang.
Nick Mitchell: The quirky guy who often perfoms as his alter ego, Norman Gentle.
Kris Allen: Among the male singers receiving virtually no air time so far.
Jeanine Vailes: She's received possibly the least air time of all this season's contestants. As in, like, none.
