American Idol Recap: Top 10 Revealed! Were the Right Four Singers Voted Out?
And then there were 10.

Following Sunday’s first “live” episode of American Idol, Monday’s actual first live (no quotation marks!) episode eliminated four more hopefuls from the competition: Marcio Donaldson, Mara Justine, Jonny Brenns and Garrett Jacobs.

That means Season 16’s official Top 10 is: Maddie Poppe, Cade Foehner, Gabby Barrett, Caleb Lee Hutchinson, Michael J. Woodard, Catie Turner, Ada Vox, Jurnee, Michelle Sussett and Dennis Lorenzo. (Those last four singers were hand-saved by the judges.)

First of all, I’m utterly heartbroken over the loss of Donaldson, the heart of this competition. I applaud the judges for saving Sussett; she’s a star,

Why Macaulay Culkin Refuses to Watch Home Alone

Why Macaulay Culkin Refuses to Watch Home Alone
Macaulay Culkin has been in the public eye a lot more over the last year, making TV appearances and showing up at his favorite independent wrestling events, sometimes even getting in on the action. Now, in a new appearance on the Ellen Show, Culkin reveals why he can't watch Home Alone and explains why he refuses to make the iconic Kevin McCallister face for fans on the street. The actor was on the show to promote his new Bunny Ears brand and podcast, which he has been promoting quite a bit lately.

Macaulay Culkin told Ellen DeGeneres that he still gets stopped all the time by fans and asked to mimic his Home Alone character putting on aftershave. Culkin, now 37, was 9-years old at the time of filming and jokingly told Ellen, "I've been there, done that already. I'm 37, ok? Ok, Mom?" It seems weird that people would even ask him to do the pose,

No, Macaulay Culkin Won’t Do the ‘Home Alone’ Face for You (Video)

No, Macaulay Culkin Won’t Do the ‘Home Alone’ Face for You (Video)
It’s been 28 years since “Home Alone” was released, and Macaulay Culkin still won’t do “the face” for you when you ask him to.

“No,” he told Ellen DeGeneres when asked what he says when he’s asked to do the face. “I’ve already been there, done that. I’m 37 now, okay mom?”

“Everybody wants me to do it,” he added.

See Video: Watch Macaulay Culkin Use 'Home Alone' Moves in Wrestling Match

During his interview with DeGeneres, Culkin also says it’s been a “curse and a blessing” to have been so famous at such a young age. He says he can get any reservation he wants but will be stared at during the entire duration of his meal. And around Thanksgiving and Christmas, when the “Home Alone” films get played over and over again on TV, he tends to go out less and less.

“It’s Macaulay season,” he jokes.

Culkin starred in the films “My Girl,” the “Home Alone” movies, “Richie Rich,” “The Good Son,” “The Pagemaster” and in 2003, “Party Monster.” He stopped working at 14 and didn’t see his money until the age of 18 when he realized that he had made enough money working as a kid that he could do the rest of the things he does these days as just “a hobby.”

“I do nothing for my dinner nowadays,” the actor revealed.

He also told DeGeneres about his time on “Saturday Night Live” alongside Mike Myers in 1991. While everyone, still to this day, uses cue cards on the show, Culkin’s dad didn’t allow it.

“I had to do a whole episode without cue cards,” Culkin said. “My father was quite insistent.”

When DeGeneres pointed out that everyone uses cue cards, he responded, “Not the 9-year-old, I guess!”

DeGeneres also showed the audience various photos of Culkin’s career, including a photo of him with Michael Jackson for the “Black or White” music video, and a picture of him with Will Smith and Steve Urkel.

“That is the most ’90s photo I’ve ever seen!” Culkin said.

Jordan Peele Honors Guillermo del Toro in Time 100 Essay: ‘To Watch His Masterpieces Is an Experience in Wonder’

Jordan Peele Honors Guillermo del Toro in Time 100 Essay: ‘To Watch His Masterpieces Is an Experience in Wonder’
Time Magazine has announced its picks for the 100 most influential people in the world in 2018, and included among the group is this year’s Oscar winner for Best Director, Guillermo del Toro. “The Shape of Water” visionary is honored by fellow Oscar winner Jordan Peele in the magazine. The “Get Out” writer-director praises del Toro as the “auteur whom artists adore” in a short essay.

“To watch one of Guillermo’s masterpieces is an experience in escapism and wonder,” Peele writes. “To gnaw on the totality of his work reveals an obsession with the eternally forbidden romance between beauty and beast.”

“Guillermo is in love with monsters and lives to show us that we are too,” he continues. “With each fable he weaves, he pushes us closer to acceptance of a primal truth: that we each have a deep connection to the spectrum of otherness.”

‘Atlanta': Why Being Brian Tyree Henry Is ‘a Lot of Daunting’ Right Now

Just like his rapper persona on FX’s “Atlanta,” star Brian Tyree Henry isn’t quite used to getting stopped on the street by fans.

“It becomes a little daunting — a lot of daunting, actually — because now you can’t really navigate the streets the way you used to,” he told TheWrap in a recent interview. “I find myself having to go left instead of right, but I’m used to going right sometimes.”

Henry said that, yes, people definitely stop him by calling out “Paper Boi!” just like on the show. It’s “difficult,” but “good.”

Also Read: Donald Glover to Host 'Saturday Night Live' Next Month

“The Paper Boi persona, it does happen to me a lot … It’s all good, it just means that people are paying attention,” he said.

And these days, there’s a lot to pay attention to. He earned an Emmy nomination for his guest spot on NBC’s “This Is Us,” is currently starring on Broadway opposite Chris Evans in “Lobby Hero” — for which he was just nominated for a Drama League Award — and will be appearing in several movies this year, including the upcoming “Hotel Artemis.”

It’s a similar case with his “Atlanta” character Alfred, who in Season 2 has had to deal with being recognized in his home town like he never has before.

Also Read: 'Atlanta': 9 Teddy Perkins-Michael Jackson Parallels That Aren't So Obvious

“He went to sleep as Alfred, and then goes on the streets and now he’s Paper Boi,” Henry said.

“It has its ups and downs,” the actor continued. “Like he can get free stuff and people still kind of want to, like, be in his space, but then people are grabbing him and taking pictures while [he’s] getting out of jail.”

“Those things, it’s a conflict for him. Constantly, I think, because he doesn’t really understand it, nor did he ask for it,” he said. “So it’s like, he still has to learn how to move through that … how to play the game. All the while playing the game, makes him exposed.”

Speaking of himself, Henry said the exposure “can be daunting. It can … kind of, like, make you forget exactly who you are at any given point in time. ‘Cause you’re like, ‘well wait a minute, hold on. What was I doing? Who am I? Where was I going?”

But the very thing that leads to exposure is what keeps Henry sane. “The work is actually the thing that keeps me the most grounded,” he said, because “it quiets the noise.”

“It’s been very hard, but it’s all very gratifying at the same time,” he said. Being on “television and film and the stage at the same time, it shows that the work is working, you know?”

Atlanta” airs on FX Thursdays at 10 p.m.

10 Pretty in Pink Facts You Never Knew
"Blane? His name is Blane? That's a major appliance that's not a name!"

‘Atlanta’ Delivers A Creepy Episode in “Teddy Perkins”

FX’S Atlanta is one of the hottest shows on television right now. That is a bold statement, but on April 5th, Atlanta aired an episode titled, “Teddy Perkins”, and everything was turned upside down in a Twin Peaks kind of way that no one was expecting. What was told was both creepy and sad.

The episode ran for 41 minutes commercial free, which meant the network believed what was transpiring on screen. Going commercial free also gave the episode an almost moviesque feeling and I believe it worked perfectly. The “Teddy Perkins” episode revolved round the character of Darius (Lakeith Stanfield) venturing out on his own in a rented U-Haul jamming out to Stevie Wonder. As a viewer I was under the impression that Darius would get into some funny or mischievous escapades just like the other characters are known to do in the series. That impression flew out the

‘Legion’: Ana Lily Amirpour Breaks Down the 5 Trippiest Scenes, From the Carousel to That Darn Cat

‘Legion’: Ana Lily Amirpour Breaks Down the 5 Trippiest Scenes, From the Carousel to That Darn Cat
[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from “Legion” Season 2, Episode 2, “Chapter 10.”]

Ana Lily Amirpour, director of the acclaimed “A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night” and the bonkers follow-up “The Bad Batch,” is not a filmmaker who falls meekly within any prescribed box. Therefore, she found her perfect television match in Noah Hawley’s imaginative adaptation of Marvel’s “Legion.”

“It has to be the right thing and the right type of collaboration for them to want my crazy ass to come in there and do what I can do,” Amirpour said in an interview with IndieWire. “I don’t think you can really call ‘Legion’ TV. I feel like it’s an experience. It’s about exploring sanity and madness and perception. Cinema is such a powerful way to do that.”

Amirpour came on for this season’s second episode, in which David Haller (Dan Stevens) is conflicted about helping the psychic parasite and mutant Amahl

Bill Cosby Retrial: Another Victim Takes the Stand to Describe Entertainer Forcing Himself on Her

Bill Cosby Retrial: Another Victim Takes the Stand to Describe Entertainer Forcing Himself on Her
Norristown, Pa. – After a defense opening that portrayed Bill Cosby as the victim of phony sexual assault accusations, a Colorado music teacher testified Tuesday that Cosby molested her back in 1984 when she was a struggling actress and he had agreed to mentor her.

The woman, Heidi Thomas, took the stand in Cosby’s retrial here in suburban Philadelphia as prosecutors sought to show that Andrea Constand – the woman whose accusation is at the heart of the criminal case against Cosby – was not the only woman assaulted by the entertainer.

Thomas testified that she traveled to Reno to meet Cosby and
