Simon knows how to bring in the money. Note to American Idol, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Freaky stuff, she looks like Steven Tyler in that photo.

Cheryl Cole is going to make Paula Abdul go bonkers again, with her beauty and sex appeal getting all the attention while Paula gets the cold shoulder.
