'Vampire Diaries': Paul Wesley on 'Daunting' Directorial Debut and Unexpected Hiccups

Paul Wesley is making moves behind the camera with his directorial debut on The Vampire Diaries.

'American Idol' Recap: Demi Lovato Returns (Sort of) to Judge Top 7

In an interesting twist, the remaining seven American Idol singers were given the task of choosing songs for their competition Wednesday.
