Arguably, the Top 3 vote is the most intense of American Idol. The trio of singers is on the cusp of their goal, inches away from being a contender in the show’s big finale. The biggest vote of the season was recorded after the Wednesday performance round: 95 million.
But some of the voters would be disappointed, because one of the Top 3 would be sent home before Thursday came to a close. The only question was… which?

Top 3 week of American Idol is always pretty big (for them). Each contestant goes home for a big celebration, with full rock star treatment.
And even James Durbin, who was eliminated last week, went back home to a hero’s welcome. But only Haley Reinhart, Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina are left to compete for votes. And of the three, only two will be a part of the show’s big finale next week.
The show snagged a superstar for Top 3 week: Beyonce. There’s no need to expound on her credentials; they’re too evident. She definitely has the knowledge to help the Top 3.
Just what Fox needs... another animated series. In this case, however, we're willing to think positive. You’ll have to wait until fall to see a whole episode, but for now Fox is offering this sneak peek. Watch the video above to get a glimpse of the animated version of Napoleon Dynamite. The series is based on the movie of the same name, and will have the same voices.

Glee’s next episode is called “Funeral,” which sounds pretty bad. Maybe it’s not a literal term? Either way, this video doesn’t offer a whole lot of clues… but it does present some delicious moments with Jonathan Groff. See the sneak peek above.

SNL’s “The Ambiguously Gay Duo,” an animated pair created by Robert Smigel, have made 12 appearances on the show since 1996... but this past Saturday, fans saw them in a whole new way. Thanks to a flesh-ray invented by the evil villain Brain-O, we learned that the live action version of Ace and Gary look exactly like Jon Hamm and Jimmy Fallon, respectively.
Late night host Stephen Colbert played Brain-O, Steve Carell Big Head, cast member Fred Armisen became Lizardo and host Ed Helms is the two-face character in the fantastic skit.

Most of the SNL cast, musical guest Paul Simon, special guest Chris Colfer (Kurt Hummel, to Gleeks), host Ed Helms and a member of Fleetwood Mac came together to bring us the skit above: an epic “What’s Up With That.” Bill Hader reprises his usual role as Lindsay Buckingham… only this time he’s joined by another Lindsay Buckingham! We’d like to thank sexy cowboys, California raisins and Keenan Thompson for the great video above.

The stage was set for drama on the Thursday results episode of American Idol. With lights turned low, Ryan Seacrest intoned about the importance of the vote. You see, only the Top 3 get to go home in glory, to a big hero’s welcome. The fourth-place finisher simply goes home, to wait for the Idol summer tour with the rest of the season’s rejects.
It took almost 72 million votes to determine the Thursday results. The Top 4 all scored high praise from the judges on Wednesday, each having two performances with which to impress them.
The pressure’s on as American Idol’s tenth season winds down. On Wednesday night, the competition was all even: two girls, two guys… two country singers, two more that are much harder to classify. But who would shine above the rest? Keep reading to get the full Top 4 recap...
Glee’s “Prom Queen” episode opened with an interview between Puck (Mark Salling) and Jacob Ben Israel (Josh Sussman). Puck was still campaigning hard for a Prom King win with queen Lauren Zizes (Ashley Fink) at his side… but as it happened, he and the rest of New Directions would be working the event.
Over Sue Sylvester’s protests, the glee club was selected to entertain the McKinley High prom crowd when Principal Figgins (Iqbal Thera) couldn’t secure his favorite band -- Air Supply -- for the event. Though Sue (Jane Lynch) was prom coordinator, the club scored the gig… mainly because there was no other act available. Thankfully, Sue keeps a list of the club’s worst number in her Spanx “at all times.” At the top of the list was “Run, Joey, Run.”
