"American Idol" runner-up Blake Lewis thinks the judge's choice of final song -- "This is My Now" all but sealed winner Jordin Spark's victory. "It's definitely not my style, a song I would never sing if I didn't have to. And I honestly think they should have had two songs that were tailored to both of us."
Still, Lewis tells People magazine, he's more than happy with his second place finish. "I'm kind of glad I didn't win for, like, contractual reasons. I think if you're first you might have to come back for like three years or something." Plus, says the beat-boxing, hair-dyeing Lewis, he's more interested in striking out on his own path-less pop and more rocks: "I'm a child of the '80s, so it's definitely going to have very advanced thing to it with more of a melodic jazzy, like Maroon 5, Jamiroquai, but definitely more on the hip-hop and electronic kind of thing."

Three weeks into filming, McDermott told his wife and mother of his two children that he was leaving her. "I've done some talks about divorce and the grieving process ... that's what I was interested in, not dishing or anything," Eustace told People magazine.
