On a week where the theme was "Home," another singer was sent packing as the Top 11 was revealed on Thursday night's elimination episode of American Idol. Before host Ryan Seacrest began calling the contestants over one-by-one to announce their fates, the show had a group therapy session, as the contestants pondered whether or not the judges -- Harry Connick Jr. in particular -- were being too harsh. Randy Jackson accused the New Orleans crooner of having "indigestion," and even New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees joined the intervention, telling Connick to calm down. "I was not hired

American Idol 2014 eliminated Emily Pritz tonight,March 6th. Tonight's elimination show, kicked off with another agonizing group performance from the top 12 contestants. They also showed some other annoying filler stuff with judge Harry Connick Jr. , and what not. Then they finally got down to business when host,Ryan Seacrest, revealed that Sam Woolf, Jessica Meuse, and Ben Briley were safe tonight, and that poor Emily Priz landed in the bottom 3. After a break, the 2012 American Idol champ ,Phillip Phillips, hit the stage to sing his new song, called, "Raging Fire." Next, Ryan revealed that Dexter Roberts, Majesty Rose, and Alex Preston were all safe, and that poor Jena Irene landed in the bottom 3 this week. After another break, mentor,Randy Jackson, introduced a band, named Kodaline to the stage to sing their song called, "All I Want." Next, Ryan revealed that Caleb Johnson, Cj Harris, and Malaya Watson were all safe, »
"Harsh Harry" has been out in full force, but it was the fans who made the important decision of who was going home on American Idol Thursday. "I just want them to get better," Harry Connick Jr. said to fellow judges Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban after a particularly negative critique on Wednesday night's performance show that left at least one contestant in tears. While no contestants received universal praise from the judges Wednesday, Urban had guaranteed finalists Sam Woolf and Emily Piriz that they would be safe despite the tough criticism. But who did America deem worthy of another week in the competition? »

Another week into "American Idol" Season 13, another all-female Bottom 3. After a middling week of performances, Mk Nobilette, Jena Irene and Emily Piriz all found themselves on the dreaded stools awaiting the final results. But who went home?
Ultimately, it was Emily who found herself singing for her life. But since it was so early in the competition, the judges declined to use their save. Here's how the whole thing went down:
The energy in the "American Idol" studio Wednesday night was off, but apparently the awkward feeling stuck around for another day because the strange video of the Top 12 singing "Home" half-shot on cell phone -- with Jena saying a very appropriate "this is so awkward" in the middle -- segued into an even weirder singalong in the audience with some more of Wednesday's off-beat clapping. (Please, audience, we beg: Stop Clapping during slow songs.)

The American Idol results show is tonight (March 6, 2014), it's elimination time, who was voted off? American Idol is down to its final 12 contestants this season, and one by one each will be eliminated going forward. Last week was the show's first live elimination for the year, and the bottom three were Malaya Watson, Kristen O'Connor, and Mk Nobilette. After all of the votes were counted, host Ryan Seacrest announced that Kristen O'Connor had been eliminated, and there was no save for her. She went home last week, leaving an even dozen for this week's competition. Here are the songs the singers performed last night: Jena Irene sang "Suddenly I See" by K.T. Tunstall Alex Preston sang "I Don't Want to Be" by Gavin DeGraw Jessica Meuse sang "White Flag" by Dido Dexter Roberts sang Lucky Man Emily Piriz sang "Let's Get Loud" by Jennifer Lopez Caleb Johnson sang "Working Man »

Tonight’s theme is “Home,” and according to Ryan Seacrest, it’s “definitely one of our most emotional themes ever.” I would add that it’s also one of the vaguest and least useful; the top 12 just have to pick a song that reminds them of home, and since it’s pretty much impossible to prove that a song doesn’t remind a person of home, they can kind of just do whatever. Not that I mind the top 12 picking whatever. I’d just rather we all be honest and call the theme “Whatever.” Overall, just like your hometown, tonight’s kind of lackluster and you end up wanting to like it much more than you actually do. Let’s get into it. Jena Irene “Suddenly I See” by KT TunstallThis was supposed to be Hillary Clinton’s 2008 campaign song, but her advisers balked at the “hell” in the chorus. »

Last Thursday's "American Idol" results weren't entirely shocking. I'd predicted that Kristen O'Connor would be eliminated and, for several reasons, she was. However, it was a minor surprise to see all of the Bottom Three slots go to women, which suggests either a shift in talent from last season, or a shift in voting patterns. It's too early, though, to know if we should start worrying about all of the girls, or just the weaker ones. Wednesday's theme is "Home," which should be roughly interchangeable from last week's theme, which involved songs that made a personal statement. After all, if your personal statement didn't say anything about where you come from, how personal could it have been? We'll see how things go after the break! 8 p.m. Et. Preparation montage! Can each of the Alabama contestants sing "Sweet Home Alabama"? "Who will bring the house down tonight?" asks Ryan Seacrest. »

Think the awards-season jockeying ended with the Oscars? Think again.
Competition among the networks for kudocasts is heating up because live events with celebrities are highly conducive to second-screen activity (aka snarky live tweeting).
NBC and CBS in particular are parrying with startup events that take aim at established franchises: The Eye has partnered with Dick Clark Prods. to launch the Hollywood Film Awards, which will air in the fall in the hope of becoming a pace setter for movie awards season — and in so doing steal some thunder from NBC’s Golden Globe Awards in January.
NBC has returned the favor by teaming with Ryan Seacrest Prods. and Clear Channel for the iHeart Radio Music Awards, to air live from the Shrine Auditorium on May 1.
That’s a salvo lobbed at CBS’ crown-jewel kudocast, the Grammys.
Ready, aim … envelope please!

The winner of the best supporting actress Oscar has beauty, charm and talent to burn. Who could fail to be dazzled by her arrival on the A-list?
• Oscars 2014: 10 things we learned
"Nee-Yongo." "En-Yong-Go." "Nwon-go." "Nye-ongo." Nobody on any of the red carpet feeds seemed able to pronounce the surname of the woman who won the Oscar for best supporting actress on Sunday night. It didn't matter, though. Lupita Nyong'o (there's a pronunciation guide here, voiced by the actor herself) has arrived. And while most of us seem glad of it, some of us are inevitably more glad than others.
Although 12 Years a Slave is her first Hollywood movie – her first job out of Yale Drama School, even – Nyong'o is no ingénue. She's 31, abundantly talented – having worked on the production crews for Hollywood movies such as The Constant Gardener – and almost extravagantly charming. At the Oscars, she never had that »

The 2014 awards season treated Jared Leto pretty, pretty well -- lauding him left and right for his turn in "Dallas Buyers Club," culminating in a Best Supporting Actor win at the 86th Academy Awards on Sunday (March 2). But it turns out the relationship between actor and season was more than a bit reciprocal.
All winter long, Leto's proven to be a charming cut-up out on the red carpet, never passing up an opportunity to crash someone else's interview and give fans (and some of the ladies he's interrupting) something they weren't expecting.
But that was nothing compared to what Leto had in store for the Oscars red carpet. While there, he flirted his way into June Squibb's chat »
If you were hoping to re-watch E!'s Live From the Red Carpet coverage—or to see some interviews that didn't make it to air—you're in luck. Hollywood's hottest stars—including nominees Leonardo DiCaprio, Julia Roberts and Chiwetel Ejifor—made sure to chat with Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet. Sandra Bullock, who looked regal in Alexander McQueen, joked about her Lorraine Schwartz diamond jewelry. "I hammered them myself. I mined them myself," the Gravity star joked. "All non-conflict." Before DiCaprio lost the Best Actor award to Dallas Buyers Club's Matthew McConaughey, the actor talked about his controversial role in The Wolf of Wall Street and the challenges he »
Kate Hudson oozed sex appeal when she glided down the Oscars red carpet Sunday. The 34-year-old actress looked sensational in an Atelier Versace dress and Neil Lane jewels—and it caught quite a few peoples attention. "You can't avoid this dress," a blushing Ryan Seacrest told the Something Borrowed star on E! News. "I'm going to do everything I can to try to make eye contact." But even Hudson's cleavage couldn't distract from the fact that her engagement ring was still M.I.A. Five days earlier, at Bvlgari's Decades of Glamour event, Hudson also ditched her diamond sparkler. The ring removal comes amid widespread speculation that her relationship with Matthew Bellamy »
Ben Affleck's Argo won Best Picture at last year's Oscars, but he was a no-show at Sunday's ceremony. Instead, his wife Jennifer Garner flew solo at the 86th Annual Academy Awards. The Dallas Buyers Club star modeled her custom Oscar de la Renta dress on the red carpet and chatted with E! News about her son Samuel's adorable reaction to the fun and flirty frock. "He made it just for me and I love it," the 41-year-old movie star told Ryan Seacrest of de la Renta's bespoke design. "When my 2-year-old saw me in it, he said, 'Mama, you look so pretty!' So I said, 'Okay, that's the one. There you go!'" Garner was on hand to support her costars Jared Leto and Matthew »
Is there a woman in Hollywood Jared Leto can't charm? The Dallas Buyers Club star and Best Supporting Actor winner, 42, casually hijacked fellow nominee June Squibb's interview with Ryan Seacrest at the 2014 Oscars on Sunday, March 2, to break the news that he and the Nebraska actress, 84, are a couple. "Let's put the rumors to rest: We are indeed dating," Leto quipped as he draped an affectionate arm around Squibb, whom he met at the Santa Barbara Film Festival in early February. "It's great!"

These days especially, what matters in a three-and-a-half hour awards show like Sunday's 86th annual Academy Awards is not who won or lost -- though the victories for Steve McQueen's "12 Years a Slave" and Alfonso Cuaron's "Gravity" seemed to be part of history in the making -- but which moments were most likely to go viral.
In case you missed the Ellen DeGeneres-hosted extravaganza -- or nodded off at some point during its 212 minutes -- here are the best and worst of the evening's memorable moments.
Best DeGeneres Opening Monologue Joke
Poking fun at Hollywood vanities and neuroses, she said, "I'm not saying movies are the most important thing in the world, because we all know the most important thing in the world is youth. But really, we know that the most important thing in life is love and friendship and family. And if people don't have those things, »

Ah, the Oscars. While the big focus of the evening is, of course, on the most mesmerizing gowns and dazzling accessories on our favorite leading ladies, that's not to say that there weren't several handsome gents stealing the show in their dapper tuxedos, too. From classic black ensembles (as seen on Brad Pitt) to crisp navy suits (like Zac Efron's sleek look), the best dressed men of the night all cleaned up quite nicely from head to toe. White and ivory suit jackets proved to be incredibly popular, as seen on Matthew McConaughey, Jared Leto and Ryan Seacrest, just to name a few. And we also have to hand it to Will Smith for an exciting spin on the classic suit. The studly »
Benedict Cumberbatch, at the 86th Academy Awards to present, was asked about differences between American and British fans. He managed to prove his assertion that Us fans were noisy by getting the crowd to yell on cue.
Ryan Seacrest asked the "Sherlock" star the fan-submitted question about how Cumberbatch would describe differences between fans in the United States and in his native Britain. Almost immediately, Cumberbatch had an answer: "They're very noisy," he said. "That's what Americans are like."
In case this point needed proof, Cumberbatch turned immediately to the fans in the red-carpet bleachers and waved. They responded by yelling and waving back. It was notably noisy all the way back on the carpet.
Safe to say Cumberbatch knows his audience at this point.
