Australian Idol: Top 7 - Big Band Remember when Kyle Sandilands was still a judge on this show, and he'd always complain that he hated big band night? Aah, memories. (Or am I getting mixed up, and he actually loved big band night? Nah... I'm pretty sure he hated it.) The show kicks off with a rendition of '(I Could Only] Whisper Your Name', which seems like such a boringly obvious choice for the groutine given that tonight's guest judge is Harry Connick Jr, aka, "That Guy From the Hey Hey Controversy". I hope Harry isn't feeling too embarrassed, given the performance is distinctly lacklustre.

Andrew G — once again going by Andrew Gunsberg — introduces guest musician and all-round jazz legend James Morrison, who's joined the Idol band tonight, before getting on with the elimination. The bottom three consists of Scott (deserved), Nathan (not that surprising), and... JAMES?! AGAIN?!?! Pardon me while I go and set myself on fire in protest.

I return to discover that James is, thankfully, safe: it's Scott going home. (If it'd been the other way around, I would've been totally homicidal for about three seconds then forgot about it, probably.) About time, really. Scott's total lack of experience has really dragged the show down for the last couple of weeks.

New video: Michael Buble's supermarket sweep I don't know about you, but generally when I head out to the supermarket I encounter total fugmos in the aisles — not smooth-voiced crooners like Michael Buble.

The singer, who's a favourite in Australia, is back with his new song 'Haven't Met You Yet',from his forthcoming album

Not sure why the clip is set in a supermarket. Though given that Michael's primary demographic is the mum set, who presumably spent a lot of time shopping for their families, perhaps he's just trying to appeal to his audience?

But don't get your hopes up that Michael will fall for you after you encounter him at your supermarket. The blonde beauty in the video is his current squeeze, Argentinean model Luisana Lopilato.

Check out the clip in the full post.

Return of the King: Elvis's grandson lands record deal Benjamin Presley could become the next uber-famous member of his family.

The Daily Mail reports that the 17-year-old — son of Lisa-Marie and grandson of Elvis — has been offered a record deal with Universal worth US$5 million.

Don't expect the King of Pop's influence to rub off on Ben: he reckons his music will be totally different in style to Elvis, who died 15 years before he was born.

Benjamin hopes to release his debut album in 2010.

Australian Idol: Top 8 - Pink After a terribly naff performance of 'Get the Party Started', Andrew G reveals that the theme of tonight's show is Pink songs. I should mention that he's hanging from one of those aerial hardness things that Pink uses in her concerts, which starts off as a cheesy gimmick but quickly becomes extremely hilarious when Tim spins him around and around in it until G's face looks like this:

His "I'm about to vomit" discomfort is the most genuine emotion I've seen on Australian Idol in years.

(Also, has anyone else noticed that Andrew has started introducing himself as "Andrew Gunsberg", using his full name?)

Elimination time. The girls are all safe, and the bottom three isn't who I expected it to be: Scott, James, and Tim. WHAAAAAT? James is in the bottom three? He's, like, the best one! Fortunately he's safe, and dreamy, dreamy Tim is given the boot. That's not entirely surprising, though Scott would have been more deserving of elimination. (Theory: Andrew G flicked Tim as revenge for spinning him around in the hardness. Controversy!)

So there's eight singers left. But the show still goes for two hours. You know what that means: filler! Lots and lots of filler. Skip straight to the good stuff in the full post.
