Mikey Gilley returns to touring

NASHVILLE (AP) - Five years ago, Mickey Gilley was paralyzed from the neck down. Now, he's ready to perform again. Gilley will launch a tour tomorrow in Claremore, Oklahoma.

Gilley says the outpouring of love from fans and the music community has kept him fighting to walk back on that stage.

Catching up with the Gosselins

NEW YORK (AP) - TLC is giving us an update on what's been happening with the Gosselins. Kate and her eight kids will be in an hour-long special airing this June. The twins are now 13 and the sextuplets are about to turn 10. Kate's ex Jon will not be part of the show.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Some of the judges' favorites could be in trouble on "American Idol" tonight. CJ Harris was singing out of tune last night. Keith Urban says CJ was great in rehearsal, but couldn't keep his pitch under control in front of the cameras. Urban says MK Nobilette might be too cool for her own good on stage. J-Lo had some unusual advice for MK -- try singing in front of the mirror. Jessica Meuse did a song about a school shooting. Harry Connick Junior says there was a disconnect between the serious nature of the song and Jessica's upbeat performance. Tonight, Jennifer Lopez performs before one of the Top 10 is sent home.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Some guitars are famous because of who owned and played them. But the owner of a Nashville guitar shop says a guitar he has in possession is famous because of what it is. George Gruhn says you can get your hands on the very first production model Fender Stratocaster ever made - that is, if you can first get your hands on a quarter million dollars that you'd be willing to part with. The sunburst-finish Strat carries the serial number 0100. While some of those guitars have lower numbers - Gruhn says those were made after the 1954 model he has in his store. Gruhn says the guitar deserves its $250,000 price tag because it's "like having the right Rembrandt or Van Gogh or Da Vinci" - special because of the artistry behind it, rather than because of who played it.

MIAMI (AP) - We're learning more about what happened the night in January that Justin Bieber was arrested in Miami Beach. And it isn't doing much to help erase the image of a spoiled young man. A police report describes Bieber as "agitated and condescending" - and using profanity when brought into the police station. Bieber denied drag racing - telling officers: "I'm 19 years old. I'm just out having a good time." He asked one officer what he was doing when he was 19. When the officer replied he wasn't a Lamborghini at that age - Bieber replied: "Yeah, well, I bet you didn't have millions of dollars in your bank account either." Bieber also told officers he was having trouble walking because he had injured his foot. But he never mentioned the injury again after the sobriety test. Bieber faces DUI and other charges - and has pleaded not guilty. Bieber faces a May 5 trial date.

New 'Star Wars' set 30 years after 'Jedi'

LOS ANGELES (AP) - The new "Star Wars" has an official timeline and one confirmed returning character: robot R2-D2. Director J.J. Abrams will begin shooting in May on "Star Wars: Episode VII," which is set three decades after 1983's "Return of the Jedi," Disney CEO Bob Iger said Tuesday. Speaking at the company's annual shareholder's meeting in Portland, Ore., Iger said the movie would feature "some very familiar faces along with a trio of new, young leads." Abrams has a penchant for secrecy, and Iger said R2-D2 was the only "official cast member" he would announce. "Episode VII" is set for release in December 2015. Iger also said Pixar plans a third "Cars" movie and a sequel to 2004's "The Incredibles."

Kanye West pleads out battery case

LOS ANGELES (AP) - The photographer who says Kanye West punched him says the rapper should be in jail. But that isn't happening. West has received two years' probation, ordered to attend anger management and do 250 hours of community service. West pleaded no contest - which lets him maintain his innocence in the case. That's key in part because the photographer, Daniel Ramos, has sued West over the incident. Ramos claims West slugged him at Los Angeles International Airport, causing injuries for which he's still being treated. Ramos also says he fears retaliation because of comments West made about paparazzi on Jimmy Kimmel's show in October.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - The "captain" of Team Breezy will be out of action for a while. A judge in Los Angeles has ordered Chris Brown to spend another month in jail.

He was being treated for anger management, substance abuse and issues related to bipolar disorder. His attorney says it's all a misunderstanding and is seeking an appeal. Mark Geragos says Brown simply "had a bad day" at the rehab center.

The ice dancing pair are competing against each other, on the new season which debuted last night. White had the high scores for the night, with Davis near the top. Double-amputee Amy Purdy awed the judges. She dances on two artificial legs. Carrie Ann Inaba (ee-NAH'-bah) says she was shocked at how well Purdy moves on the dance floor. Drew Carey got high marks for going for more than laughs. But Billy Dee Williams maybe looking at a quick exit. He was far behind the pack with the lowest scores for the first night. We'll find out who's the first to be sent home next Monday night.
