Paula leaves Idol and SYTYCD final four
Everyone is all a Twitter about Paula Abdul leaving American Idol. Abdul herself broke the news in a Twitter message saying: "With sadness in my heart, I've decided not to return to Idol."
SheKnows reporter Caroline Gutierrez Goddard has more to say about that right here!
While you're clicking about, check out my recap of last night's first quarterfinal round on America's Got Talent here!
Slim pickings for the America's Got Talent top 5, I say, but we'll find out who made it through, tonight.
On the fictional side, the characters on both Warehouse 13 and Ruby & the Rockits were as thick as thieves last night. First, Ruby borrowed Patrick's brand new car without permission so she could pick up a drunken Jordan from a party. When Patrick notices that the driver's seat has been moved to accommodate a shorter person, he accuses David of having stolen his car and Ruby is happy to let her father take the blame so she and Jordan don't get in trouble. Three guesses how that turned out.
Over on Warehouse 13, James Naughton was the man behind a plan to steal a series of art objects that together form a Native American treasure map. The map leads to an underground cave which holds the four elements that make up the Earth. The man who possesses these elements can control the planet but luckily, Myka and Pete were on hand to stop him before he got that far.
Tonight it's all about the competition as dancers, singers, magicians and chefs all compete for top honors. Take a look:
