'American Idol' wrapup: Elvis night

Spoilers after the jump.

Your reality wrapup . . .

'American Idol'

Anointing Adam Lambert as mentor of Elvis night was inspired, despite the runner-up's lack of experience. He egged Chicago's Crystal Bowersox to switch to electric guitar for her update of "Saved," and she killed it. Ellen Degeneres has officially run out of nice things to say about her.

Mount Prospect's Lee DeWyze is still Bowersox's main competition. He sang "A Little Less Conversation" as if he'd marinated his voice in bourbon. Impeccable. Kara DioGuardi said she'd like to see a more playful side of the deadpan DeWyze, which would be a tall order. "What do you want, kittens?" taunted Simon Cowell. Note to DeWyze: Keep doing what you do.

Michael Lynche, who was saved by the judges last week, impressed with "In the Ghetto." And the much-maligned Tim Urban continued to make in-roads with a dreamy "I Can't Help Falling in Love With You."

In other news, Ryan Seacrest has replaced Paula Abdul in the impending-breakdown watch. At one point, he tickled some female audience members.

'Dancing With the Stars'

Kate Gosselin landed in the bottom three - so close! - with Niecy Nash and soap star Aiden Turner. But it was the Bond-like Brit who was voted off. His accent was smooth; his moves were not.
