Congratulations to Lee DeWyze the surprise winner of the latest season of American Idol! Everyone thought that runner up Crystal Bowersox would win it, as she has been a favourite the whole season, but in the last few weeks Lee has been stepping up his game and it worked for him!
But many people are saying that what this season of American Idol will be remembered for the most, is not the contestants, but the year that Simon Cowell left the show! Last night was Simon's last night as an Idol judge and their was a great tribute to him, where 7 previous Idol winners and 15 old contestants sang "Together We Are One" for Simon and previous Idols judge Paula Abdul made a surprise appearance too! Simon was actually emotional and said he would miss the show very very much! Sweet!
We might not have to cry about Simon leaving the show for very long though, the rumour is that Idol producers want pop icon Madonna to replace Simon as a judge and if she says yes, we just can't wait to see! We think she will be fantastic! (Source:Yahoo)

As we told you earlier today, its that time of the year - TIME magazine has released its famous 100 list. Lady Gaga has been named this year's most influential artist and we don't think anyone else could have been more deserving, with all the amazing things she has been doing this year! Other celebs like Oprah and Robert Pattinson also made the Artist section of the list. Here are some of our favourites. For the full list click here!

It looks like love really can change people! Famous mean guy Simon Cowell and his new fiance Mezhgan Hussainy were spotted taking a romantic walk in Malibu yesterday holding hands. We couldn't believe our eyes when we saw Simon laughing and smiling at the cameras and looking like a happy and in-love almost sweet guy! Has his new love softened him? We never thought that was possible! Mezghan must be one special lady!

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!

It looks like the new judging table on this year's American Idol is a real hot seat! We hear new judge Ellen Degeneres and famous mean judge Simon Cowell are not getting along at all! It all went wrong from Ellen's first day, where Simon was late arriving and much to his upset, the show started taping without him! Ever since then its been a power struggle between Simon and Ellen and we hear, when the cameras stop rolling the two are not even speaking to each other! We are guessing this is going to make for some interesting television viewing! Which team are you on? (Source: Radar)
