When Prince William and Kate Middleton arrive in Ottawa on Thursday to kick off their Royal Tour of Canada, the newlyweds won’t be checking-in to a luxury hotel. Instead, they’ll be checking-in to a luxury home!
The Department of Canadian Heritage has confirmed to HollywoodLife.com that the Royals will spend Thursday and Friday evening at Rideau Hall, the 173-year old home of David Johnston, Canada’s Governor General and representative of the Queen in Canada.
Discreetly located, away from the city center, the sprawling estate occupies 88 acres and houses 24 buildings. The main building alone consists of 170 rooms!
Visiting dignitaries and members of the Royal family often stay at Rideau Hall. In face, William’s grandmother, The Queen, stayed there during her 2010 Royal Tour Of Canada.
Rideau Hall’s architecture reflects what’s known as a Florentine Renaissance Revival style. It includes a massive ornate ballroom, whose highlight is a glass chandelier, »

Police lights flash. Sirens blare. Medics rush toward the twisted wreckage of a totaled car. Firefighters sprint into a burning building. Colombian guerrillas wreak havoc in a small rural village. This…is American Idol? Yes, it is. Or rather, this…is American Idol…misguidedly dipping its toe into the reenactment business.
What the heck? Has Nigel Lythgoe been drawing inspiration from one too many Friday-night viewings of 48 Hours: Mystery (and its penchant for using low-rent stock footage to tell a tale)? Or is it merely the fact that, seven episodes in to the season 10 auditions, he’d try just about »

"American Idol" travels to San Francisco and clearly the California talent is split north/south because it is 100x better than Los Angeles.
San Francisco kicks off with Inessa Lee, a Ukrainian girl that makes us feel fairly uncomforatable because she's very sexualized in her YouTube videos, but she also looks 14. There's an Ick Factor here. She sings "I'm All Out of Love" by Air Supply, which makes us love her just a little bit because - Air Supply! But it's not that good and she also has that Kirsten Dunst snaggletooth thing going, as she simpers and Betty Boops her way around the room. Back to icky.
After a rough morning full of bad singers and bird poop, the afternoon starts with Brittany Mazur, Lara Johnston and Matthew Nuss who all sing very nice in the tiny snippet we see and get sent to Hollywood.
The next full audition is Stefano Langone, »
