But Chelsea Handler had seen this play before. "Justin Bieber tries to pull this s*** when he comes, too," she said. "Now I know exactly where he learned it from. Anything I talk about he plays it around like he and I are gonna start some torrid love affair."

Fergie & Slash, 'Super Bowl XLV Half-Time Show'After what seems like years and years of classic rock superstars, 'Super Bowl XLV' (Sun., 6:30PM ET on FOX) marked a return to the mega-production halftime show. Fans of the Black Eyed Peas expected a big party, because that's what the Peas are known for, but even they were probably impressed and surprised by the spectacle laid upon them.

What looked at first like legions of fans flocked to the stage as the performance began, but it quickly became obvious that they were part of the show. Decked out in white uniforms complete with lights, these dancers made the performance extend beyond the stage and encompass the entire field.

Even the stage expanded to write out the word "LOVE" by the time the Peas got to their first break-out single "Where Is the Love?" from 2003. In fact, the entire show featured a compilation of their greatest hits, along with a few surprises.

Usher and Homer SimpsonIn the most hilarious accusation of plagiarism ever, an intrepid YouTuber has compiled evidence that a portion of the Usher song 'OMG' was actually inspired by a Christmas carol penned by none other than -- wait for it -- Homer Simpson.

The yellow one's festive song aired during the 14th season of 'The Simpsons' and goes like this: "Christmas in December/Wow wow wow/Gimme tons of presents/Now now now."

Even better, though, is that the oh-so-sophisticated Usher lyrics sound like Homer could've written them too: "Honey got a booty like/Pow pow pow/Honey got some boobies like/Wow oh wow."

For the record, will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas actually wrote the track. And since we know what you're thinking, it's okay -- we'll say it first: It's a slow news week.

Usher and Chelsea Handler Agree: Justin Bieber Is a 'Ladies' Man'R&B singer Usher is the man who essentially "discovered" Justin Bieber.

First off, Chelsea wants to know if the 16-year-old Bieber has outstripped Usher in terms of flirting: "Do you think that you're more of a ladies' man than he is, or is he kind of schooling you?" Hmm. A good question. Has the student become the master?

'American Idol' - '1 of 10 Voted Off' Recap

american idol top 10
My favorite part about the very beginning of an 'American Idol' results show is guessing who's going to go home. According to our poll from last night's episode, most of you think that it's Didi Benami's turn to leave the stage. While I can definitely understand that rationale -- she has been murdered by the judges for the past few weeks, after all -- I disagree. Even though he did a good job last night, I kind of feel that Lee DeWyze should go home, if for no other reason than the fact that I completely forget he's on the show every week.

Before we get to the actual results, though, there's a lot of other stuff that we have to get through: namely a rally weird 'Clash of the Titans' product placement that opens the show, as well as a performance from 'Idol's' forgotten winner, Ruben Studdard. We learn a few interesting things during this performance: Ruben has lost a pretty substantial amount of weight, and he's going on tour this summer with his 'Idol' runner-up, Clay Aiken. So what do you guys think? Is this tour going to be a fun show, or just two guys trying to recapture the limelight?
