Everything changed on “American Idol” when the judges saved Big Mike -- and that means two contestants were eliminated last week.

Howie has always appreciated gifts from Ellen -- especially the hermetically sealed inflatable ball he can walk around in! Then, we’ve watched TORI SPELLING & DEAN MCDERMOTT’s relationship grow through some tough times on their reality show, and today they’re stopping by to give us a sneak peek at what’s happening on their brand new season! With two young kids, there’s sure to be drama. And this season of “Dancing with the Stars” began with a surprise elimination; now none of the contestants feel safe -- including *****cat Dolls lead singer NICOLE SCHERZINGER and her partner, DEREK HOUGH. They’ll show Ellen they’ve got what it takes to win -- when they perform right here.

And that may have been a bad video for Hannah, but she’ll be in good company today when a group of audience members show off their hilarious Bad Paid-for Photos! Then, everyone was shocked last week when Big Mike was voted off “American Idol,” but we all got another surprise when the judges agreed to use the save to keep him on the show. That meant that today’s guest didn’t get a chance to be saved, and they’re stopping by today for one last performance. Plus, the world first got to know HILARY DUFF as a young Disney star.
