6. On-camera Simon is a bit nasty, but off-camera, he's a total jerk.
5. Voting for yourself 100 times an hour causes some wicked carpal tunnel.
4. When you forget the words, just do this. (Sanjaya belts out a riff like"Ohhhhhhhh")

Idol To Take Cheese to a Whole New Level
TMZ reports: "American Idol" will raise the dead on Wednesday and feature a performance with Celine Dion and ... Elvis Presley?!

While "A.I." teased their "Idol Gives Back" charity benefit by revealing that "two of the biggest stars in musical history come together," sources at last week's taping tell TMZ that Celine sang Elvis Presley's hit, "If I Can Dream" -- with an Elvis impersonator! Ugh! But we're told the impersonator was just used as a stand-in, and what you will actually see when the show airs is Celine singing with a virtual Elvis -- in the vein of Natalie Cole and Nat King Cole's "Unforgettable." Unbelievable!

At the taping, the remaining "Idol" wannabes also sang with Celine and Elvis, but as backup in the choir. Hallelujah! Elvis died nearly thirty years ago, while Celine has been singing at Caesars Palace in Vegas for the last four.[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

Congressman Uses Girl Talk in MashUp Debate
PR reports: Girl Talk's Gregg Gillis has decided to throw in the towel. Don't freak out Girl Talk fans, he's not throwing in that particular towel. The towel we speak of refers to Gillis' day job as a biomedical engineer that up until now has kept him from taking on more remix projects and touring on a regular basis. 

Pittsburgh based U.S. Congressman Mike Doyle (D - PA) recently joined the company of such reputable musicians as Beck and Wayne Coyne of the Flaming Lips that have taken notice of Gillis by recently acknowledging the buzz-worthy laptop rocker on the floor of Congress.
