Hiding the ring? She is gorgeous!
We spotted Simon Cowell and his lady friend, Mezhgan Hussainy on a romantic date at Hollywood's Cecconi's restaurant this weekend. Mezhgan is the makeup artist on American Idol and it has been rumoured for a long time that the she and Simon have been dating, but they insist they are just old friends. But this weekend a friend leaked the news that not only are Simon and Mezghan a couple, but they are engaged! Simon has denied the rumours, bu the two were definitely all cuddly together at the restaurant and doing a really good job of hiding Mezhgan's engagement ring finger while the cameras were on them!

American Idol Top 24 Drama!

American Idol Top Semi-Finalists- Men Keke Palmer Scott MacIntyre Giuliana DePandi - Rancic Chris Golightly and Tim Urban
It was the American Idol Top 24 party last night, do you notice anything strange about these pics of the contestants? Poor Chris Golightly has been dropped! The boy already has such a sad story and now he has been disqualified from this season of American Idol's Top 24 list!

Chris was replaced with Tim Urban suddenly after his previous manager called the show's producers saying that Chris was still under a record contract for a boy band. Chris says he was released from the contract in June last year, a month before the Idols auditions last year! But his bad luck just kept going on, as he couldn't find the papers proving he had been released from the contract!The Idol people called Chris up and told him he was disqualified and replaced him with Tim Urban. Of course his manager found the papers after all the drama and now the Idol people don't want to go back on their decision. Chris says he thinks its very unfair and he is even thinking of talking to a lawyer! Watch out for more details on this story! (Source: IdolChatter)

Simon Cowell Says Goodbye Idol!
So happy this is isn't the last of that famous bitchy face!
American Idol judge Simon Cowell really knows how to create a buzz! At a press conference for the show yesterday, the British meanie had this shocker: he will be leaving the judges table after the latest season! Simon has been threatening to leave the show for years, but no one believed he actually would, because we all know how much Simon loves the spotlight! Simon announced a second surprise too, he is bringing his other hit British reality show, "X Factor" to the US next year! So we haven't seen the end of Simon yet, and rumour is Simon's old Idol judge buddy Paula Abdul will be involved in X Factor too in some way, because Simon says he misses her, aw sweet!
