In an interesting twist, the remaining seven American Idol singers were given the task of choosing songs for their competition Wednesday. The “Competitors Pick” theme certainly opened up the evening for sabotage, but this bunch seems uninterested in drama, and did a nice job matching up songs for their peers. Mentor Randy Jackson said the theme was more to test the ideas of the Top 7, and some of the suggestions were really interesting. Former X Factor judge Demi Lovato stopped by to talk about her Neon Lights tour and to have a seat next to Jackson to check out

Jack Robinson, a 4-year-old Hampshire boy with an inoperable brain tumor, died last week. Before his death, Jack had several of his dreams come true. He was visited at the hospital by Gary Barlow, a judge on the U.K. edition of the X Factor and frontman of the British pop-group Take That. Jack was a admirer of Barlow's single 'Let Me Go.' Jack was also a huge Doctor Who fan, and received a personalized message from Matt Smith, the Eleventh Doctor (video at bottom of the page). He was even given a ride in a fire engine as an early birthday present. All of those acts of kindness certainly helped ease the young boy's pain, yet Jack had one final wish - a Star Wars-themed funeral. Two days ago in Denmead, Hampshire, at All Saints' church, Jack's family and friends gathered to make that final wish a reality. »
