There is a ton of Idol activity happening and I hope to keep on top of it all. However, for now, I will bow to the comprehensive research via USA Today’s IdolChatter Site:
.Thia Megia tells Michael Slezak that Peggi Blu really isn’t the “vocal coach from hell” that American Idol made her out to be during Hollywood Week. “I would have to say that she was one of the best vocal coaches I’ve ever worked with, ever,” Thia says in a new Idoloonies video interview. “During off-camera moments, she would hug us; she would give us very inspirational talks.”
• Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina have been added to the City of Hope Celebrity Softball Challenge at Nashville’s Greer Stadium on June 11.

Casey’s currently working on his debut album for Sony Nashville. And, oh yeah, it’s Casey’s 29th birthday today! Check out some childhood birthday pictures here.
