David Archuleta Says Hello To The World In An Emotional Vlog After Returning To The U.S.!

| Filed under: American IdolDavid Archuleta

David Archuleta is back and he's catching up on everything that's happened during the two years he's been gone!

That's a lot to read up on but once you reach Justin Bieber's mugshot, you'll know you're almost there! LOLz!

The former American Idol contestant just returned from a Mormon mission that he started at the end of 2011, where he found himself serving a two-year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Chile.

Upon his return, David has been slowly recuperating and getting back in touch with the world!

Still no word if he's returning to music, but if we had to guess, the few notes he played on the piano could be a hint as to what's next for the musician!

Take a look at David reacquainting himself with the keys on the piano and his adorable message to the world (above)!

At first we thought it was an "Avril Fools Day" prank, but it sounds like the real deal to us!

Whoa, whoa, whoa! Check out the mouth on Jenny from the f*cking block over here!

Jennifer Lopez was executing her normal duties on American Idol last night when she gave that one guy working the censored button a run for his money!

That's right, when Harry Connick Jr. and Keith Urban ask her to flip her hair at one point, she says, "f*ck that."

You better duck and cover like a kid in a 1950's PSA, because this is an explosive F-BOMB! There were no survivors! JK no one was harmed in the making of American Idol, except probably the egos of most of the contestants.

As much you love Papi, J.Lo, we still love you! The FCC is loving you too right now probably, you know, by giving them something to do.

Ch-ch-check out all the swearing (above)!!!

It's been over 10 years since we first met Kimberly Caldwell!

The American Idol season 2 alum is still making music and…. has hit a real nice groove!

Caldwell has released a new song which is slightly less pop "rock" than what she's done before a little more POP!

It's more in line with Kelly Clarkson - with sprinkles of Anastacia - and we're really feeling it!

Check out On The Weekend above!

American Idol's First Openly Gay Contestant MK Nobilette Got The Boot Last Night & Made Jennifer Lopez Cry! Sadsies!

| Filed under: TV NewsMusic MinuteAmerican IdolRyan SeacrestJennifer LopezKeith Urban

Jennifer Lopez called her a "quiet storm" during the audition process—and just like the rain, she came and went!

We're so sad to reveal that American Idol's first openly gay contestant MK Nobilette was voted out of the show's top 10 last night!

Even worse, Jenny, who's been a huge fan of MK ever since the beginning, looked to be in complete tears (above) as the talented songstress performed John Legend‘s All Of Me—in hopes of being ultimately saved!

We know the I Luh Ya Papi singer tried to do some major convincing with Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr., but it simply wasn't enough for the judges to use their save.

MK has a hugely supportive fanbase, so we're sure news of last night's exit hit them hard—but we're so happy this adorable almost Idol helped change the face of the show forever!

Here's to more open and honest contestants from now on!
