Susan Boyle moves into the finals of 'Britain's got Talent.'

Jimmie Johnson's advice to Danica Patrick

Will Danica be making the change to NASCAR? She doesn't really say but has hinted. Jimmie tells her to get some experience first. I think the drivers are tired of newbies causing wrecks. Read the story here: http://sports.yahoo.com/irl/news?slug=dw-johnsonpatrick052009&prov=yhoo&type=lgns

American Idol surprise ending

Wow...........quite the unexpected finish for American Idol. Kris winning instead of the so-called favorite, Adam. I personally think that Adam's "screaming" is what did him in. Once Danny was out of the running and it came down to Kris and Adam, I think the only logical place for Danny's fans to go were to Kris. It was definitely a great finale show!
