Source: Getty / Dave J Hogan You don't have to be a country music fan to adore Carrie Underwood. In 2005, the Oklahoma native was thrust into the national spotlight when she won American Idol, and the sweet Southerner quickly evolved into one of country's biggest stars. She's been at the top of her game - and at the top of the charts - ever since, charming even those who don't keep country songs on their iPod. Beyond all the music-related praise, though, Carrie's also inspired fans with her offstage personality and her real-life romance with Mike Fisher. In honor of Carrie's upcoming 31st birthday on Monday, let's enjoy a trip down memory lane, plus a look at all the reasons it's so easy to love her.

American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez is trying to help out her boyfriend Casper Smart with his new chosen career - it appears J Lo's man wants to be an actor. The 'On the Floor' hitmaker has offered ''little'' tips to Casper Smart, 26, while he is working on new movie 'Restored Me', and she advised the backing dancer - who has been studying acting for two years - to be ''natural''. Asked if Jennifer had given him advice, he told 'Access Hollywood': ''Just the little stuff. Have fun, be yourself...that's all you can be. Just be yourself, be natural.'' Though Casper has been dating Jennifer - who has six-year-old twins Max and Emme with third husband Marc Anthony - for almost three years, he brushed off questions about whether they plan to marry. Asked if he has ''talked marriage'' with the 44-year-old singer-and-actress, he »

Ellen DeGeneres' record-breaking Oscars selfie is going to be pretty hard to top, but props to Ryan Seacrest for trying! The American Idol host turned the camera back on himself Thursday night, taking and tweeting a picture with judges Randy Jackson, Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez and returning season 11 winner Phillip Phillips all in frame, too! Notably absent from the selfie, though? Harry Connick Jr., who somehow didn't sneak his way into the pic! From a quick glance, though, it doesn't seem this New Orleans crooner is a fan of the selfie craze. He hasn't shared too many (if any) snaps taken from that awkward angle on his social media accounts. He even joked about our collective cultural »
CBS dominated Thursday’s ratings race, as its comedies “The Big Bang Theory,” “The Millers” and “Two and a Half Men” all were at the high end of their range while ABC’s dramas “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal” cooled off after their hot returns one week earlier. It was also a good night for CW’s “Reign,” which was up 25% or more across the board, but a bad one for Fox’s “American Idol,” which hit a low with its results show.
According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, “The Big Bang Theory” (5.2 rating/17 share in adults 18-49, 17.9 million viewers overall) was easily the night’s No. 1 program, up from last week and matching its season high. It was followed by “The Millers” (3.0/9 in 18-49, 11.8 million viewers overall), which retained a stronger-than-usual percentage of its lead-in, and “Two and a Half Men” (2.7/8 in 18-49, 10.5 million viewers overall), which drew »

The continued strength of The Big Bang Theory and the new comedy The Millers helped CBS to take Thursday in the key demo and viewers. Bang posted a 5.2 rating, up 4% from last week, which provided a sweet lead-in for The Millers (3.0, 11% from last week), according to Nielsen.
Even though The Crazy Ones at 9:30 tied its series low at 1.7, CBS still won the night in 18-49 with a 2.7 and with viewers (10.6 million).

Fast National ratings for Thursday, March 6, 2014
Per usual, "The Big Bang Theory" and "Scandal" were among Thursday's top shows in the ratings. But while "Big Bang" was up a little bit over its performance last week, "Scandal" took a hit in its second episode back from hiatus.
The strong performance from "Big Bang" helped "The Millers" and "Two and a Half Men" as well, with the latter scoring its best numbers since its season premiere. At ABC, "Grey's Anatomy" joined "Scandal" in dipping week to week. "Parks and Recreation" and "Parenthood" each rose slightly for NBC, as did "The Vampire Diaries" on The CW. "American Idol" dropped slightly for Fox.
CBS averaged 10.7 million viewers and a 6.6 rating/11 share in households for the night. Fox (6.64 million, 4.2/7) narrowly beat ABC (6.58 million, 4.6/8) for second. NBC came in fourth with 3.3 million viewers and a 2.1/3, and The CW (2 million, 1.3/2) trailed.
CBS also led the 18-49 demographic with a 2.7 rating. »
CBS topped Thursday as Fox's “American Idol” fell to a new series low. “Idol,” got a 2.4 rating in the key demo the past two Thursdays. Last night, it fell to a 2.2. CBS was first in ratings with a 2.7/8 rating in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and first in viewers with an average of 10.7 million, according to preliminary numbers. Also read: ‘Arsenio Hall Show’ Gets Big Ratings Boost From Prince “The Big Bang Theory” at 8 p.m. was the highest-rated and most-watched show of the night, pulling in a 5.2/17 and 17.9 million viewers. “The Millers” at 8:30 got a 3.0/9 and »

Fast National ratings for Thursday, March 6, 2014. With "The Big Bang Theory" leading the way in all measures, everything in CBS' schedule was up on Thursday other than "The Crazy Ones," as the network ruled the night in all measures. Fox's "American Idol" didn't take a big drop, but it was down slightly, failing to even make things competitive with "The Millers" ("Big Bang Theory" has had a massive advantage for a while) and again leading into a weak week for "Rake," which is being shipped off to Fridays. After last week's big returns, both "Grey's Anatomy" and "Scandal" took big drops for ABC, but still easily won their hours in young viewers. It didn't help that "Once Upon a Time in Wonderland" barely made a ripple in its return. Speaking of barely making a ripple, other than a solid bump for "Parks and Recreation," NBC's whole lineup barely made a ripple. »

America did not get loud for Emily Piriz.
The 18-year-old Florida native was the second finalist sent home by America’s vote on American Idol. Piriz sang “Let’s Get Loud” by judge Jennifer Lopez on Wednesday night’s “Home” themed show. Though Lopez liked the performance, Piriz still got the boot. For the second week in a row, the bottom three was a girl’s club with Mk Nobilette and Jena Irene joining Piriz in “the most hated stools in television,” as host Ryan Seacrest noted. EW talked to Emily Piriz right after the elimination to see how she feels. »

The tour dates for 2014 for the rock band Queen have been announced, the legendary band will use American Idol singer Adam Lambert as a singer in place of late frontman Freddy Mercury. Lambert was the runner-up in 2009 on American Idol and has performed with the band in the past. Adam will join guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor on a 19-date tour, which Brian claims will be the ''closest that you'll ever get to see Queen as it was in our golden days.'' Adam told Rolling Stone magazine: ''I think the thing that's really special is that this is the real deal. This is live. ''In today's music world, you go to a concert and you're getting a lot of playbacks. There's click tracks. It is what it is. I'm not hating on it. But this is the real deal. This is pure.'' He added: ''We're not playing to a click. »
Okay, I’m going to acknowledge it: American Idol season 13 has gone off the rails a little bit. It’s not the judges: They have chemistry with one another, they’re smart, they make forceful and succinct points. It’s not the production itself: These results shows, once a gruesome time-suck of group numbers and Ford music videos, have become a zippy hour of smart bookings and occasional suspense. It’s not even Randy Jackson: He’s barely there. (It’s probably partially Randy Jackson.)The problem is the finalists. What was a promising group a few weeks ago has boiled down to a dull top 12. Appealing oddballs Alex Preston and Mk Nobillette are suddenly nervous performers. Potential dreamboats Ben Briley and Sam Woolf are failing to develop. None of the girls can sing in tune. It’s getting grim. Last night, now that I’ve had a day to think about it, »

American Idol Recap
At the start of the episode, the judges – more specifically, Harry Connick Jr. – were put under the microscope for possibly judging too harshly on Wednesday night. Randy Jackson, looking a bit bitter from his mentoring spot, made a joke about Connick suffering from some indigestion. Throwing some bile back Jackson’s way, Connick stated, “ I was not hired as a mentor; I was hired as a judge.”
In a lighter bit of ribbing, Connick received a message from the quarterback of his favorite football team – Drew Brees of the New Orleans Saints. After the teasing from Brees, Connick laughed with some humility before turning to the contestants to use Brees' job as an athelete to explain their relationship.

Even if the "American Idol" thing didn't work out, Emily Piriz had a backup plan: college. But even though she was eliminated in 12th place on the show's 13th season, she still plans to give music a go. In fact, she and fellow finalist Jena Irene are planning to move out to Los Angeles together this summer -- once they both graduate from high school.
"I'm a senior," Piriz tells Zap2it and a small group of reporters backstage after the Top 12 elimination show. "I'm just gonna go back home ... go back to school and graduate. Me and Jena were actually talking that we want to move out to [Hollywood] together this summer."
The original plan was to go to the University of North Florida and room with her high school friend, so having the whole "Idol" experience is like living in another reality. "It's weird going through that whole college search, »
There's tension in the house, dawg! Tonight on American Idol, 12 singers took the stage in hopes of becoming the next singing sensation, but only 11 were allowed to continue their journey. Although it was sad to see one of our talented finalists leave the competition, the real entertainment in tonight's episode were Harry Connick Jr.'s subtle jabs at "mentor" Randy Jackson. (Team Harry Ftw!) At the top of the hour, Connick took a moment to address fans' concerns that he was being overly harsh with his criticisms on Wednesday night. "I'm not going to belabor the fact that you're great," he said. The dashing crooner explained that, unlike Randy, Harry has a very limited time to »
