And then there were nine… We rounded up the remaining "American Idol" finalists (Stefano Langone, Jacob Lusk, Lauren Alaina, Casey Abrams, Scotty McCreery, Paul McDonald, Haley Reinhart, James Durbin and Pia Toscano) after Wednesday night's show and asked them each one personal question -- and boy did they answer candidly.
Who can sleep just about anywhere to catch some Z's before a performance? What goes on in Lauren's head right before Ryan Seacrest announces whether she's safe or in the bottom? How is Casey's confidence level these days? Who is the first person Paul calls after he performs? Which artist would Pia choose to duet with? And who finds it difficult to sing to the "hard glass lens" of the camera? Watch the video for everyone's answers!
Watch "American Idol" on FOX tonight to see who gets eliminated next…
Donald Trump has gone on record criticizing the way America is being run on his road to possible presidential candidacy, but the outspoken creator of "The Apprentice" is engaging another issue that he feels is just as imperative; President Barack Obama's place of birth.
Trump was with Meredith Vieira on the "Today" show this morning and said bluntly that he doesn't believe President Barack Obama was born in the United States, despite his camp advising him to move on to other topics.
"Three weeks ago before he started, I thought he was born in the country and now I have a much bigger doubt," the real estate mogul said emphatically. "His grandmother in Kenya says he was born in Kenya and witnessed the birth, okay?"
Trump and Vieira virtually have a stand off on the subject as he states Obama's certificate of live birth is "not even close" to being an equivalent of a U.S. birth certificate that the "Today" host mentions.
In the end, Trump declares that he hopes Obama can add some validity to his residence status with an authentic birth certificate. Until then however, the "Celebrity Apprentice" star made one glaring proclamation.
"I hope he can [show his birth certificate]. If not, then he's pulled one of the greatest cons in the history of politics."
Listen to more of Trump's stunning statements in the video.
Despite having been ousted from "The Biggest Loser," mother/daughter team Marci and Courtney Crozier are still continuing on their journey to weight loss and recently showed off their progress in a photo shoot on the beach with OK Magazine.
Since first joining the show, Marci has lost 80 pounds, while Courtney has lost 113 pounds. Courtney says she is looking to lose more weight by the final episode of "The Biggest Loser," while Marci says "My new goal is to strengthen, to tone, and just to be fit and healthy."
When talking about the excitement of doing the photo shoot, Courtney said, "This photo shoot is so cool. I just feel so special. I really do feel beautiful."
Even though both Marci and Courtney have been sent home from "The Biggest Loser," they talk about being in the running for the $100,000 at-home prize.
"I think I'm a threat to win the at-home prize," Courtney says. "I really want to get to my weight loss goals, and whether that means I win the at home prize or not, I will stand up on that scale at the end of this and be a winner. I already feel like a winner."
"The Biggest Loser" airs Tuesdays at 8PM on NBC.

"Being a Gigolo isn’t always easy" – or so says Jimmy, one of five real, high-end Las Vegas escorts profiled in Showtime's new series, "Gigolos".
Offering an uncensored, and sometimes extremely graphic spotlight on the nights (and days) of working male gigolos as they service women from all walks of life - single, married, or divorced - and all willing to spend a pretty penny for a bit of "quality" company. This provocative series seems to evoke a certain Bravo-style "Real Male Escorts of Las Vegas", but make no mistake- this is Showtime territory, and they take full allowance of their cable channel freedoms. Be warned: this one is not for the kiddies.
Check out an advance peek of "Gigolos" which premieres tonight (Thursday, April 7) on Showtime.

Carrie Underwood aired out her dirty laundry in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, dishing on her new married life with NHL player Mike Fisher.
Carrie and Mike did not live together before their wedding, and up until this year Mike played hockey for the Ottawa Senators in Canada while Carrie stayed at home in Nashville. Her husband's February trade to the Nashville Predators was bittersweet.
"He came and he brought all of his crap with him," said Carrie, who married Mike on July 10, 2010. "He's not a hoarder but he's close, maybe."
The country singer went on to dish on Mike's secret vice, saying, "He loves to shop. He's going to kill me. He has stuff come in and I'm like it's not going out fast enough. If you bring stuff in, stuff needs to go out. Do we need this shirt? It's got a giant stain on the sleeve. Are we going to wear this again? No, then do something with it."
You can see Carrie's entire interview on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" on Thursday, April 7.
