Five contestants sadly went home last night on "American Idol," and it is the second time that the show had to say good-bye to Emily Brooke.
Emily Brooke also made it last year to the Top 48, but the judges decided she wasn't ready yet to be included in the Top 24. She came back fiercely in the farewell season of "American Idol," and was finally chosen to become one of the 24 contestants who'll perform with a live audience on the "Idol" stage. Unfortunately, Brooke was eliminated last night, making her say good-bye to her "Idol" dreams once again.
Before the eliminations, the first half of the quarterfinalists performed with former "American Idol" winners and runner-ups to help the judges, Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban, and Harry Connick Jr., decide who can work well with other artists. more >>
Gordon Ramsay eliminated Alan Parker last Wednesday night on "Hell's Kitchen" season 15.
The Lancaster, California-native did not perform well in the Blue team's kitchen last episode, which ultimately led the British chef to send him packing home. According to Lancaster Online, Gordon did not like Alan's risotto during the dinner service since the "Hell's Kitchen" host found it soupy. Alan tried to make the risotto work by adding more cheese, but he failed to impress Gordon and just made him angrier.
Gordon also sent home Kevin, a member of the Blue team, adding more pressure for the team to perform well. However, both the Red and the Blue teams failed to complete the service since Gordon shooed them away from the kitchen after serving overcooked appetizers and undercooked entrees. more >>
"Shadowhunters" author, Cassandra Clare, is now facing a lawsuit for copyright infringement.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Clare is being sued by another author, Sherrilyn Kenyon, for "trademark infringement, copyright infringement, unfair competition, false advertising, and trade dress infringement."

Kenyon states that the similarities between her own work and Clare's "Shadowhunters" series are too uncanny, which are stated in the lawsuit filed. "Both the Dark Hunter series and the Shadowhunters series are about an elite band of warriors that must protect the human world from the unseen paranormal threat that seeks to destroy humans as they go about their daily lives. These hunters, whether 'dark' or 'shadow,' preserve the balance between good and evil, protecting humans from being consumed or enslaved," the article reads. more >>
