IDOL GIVES BACK: Gee, gosh, the "most shocking result" ever? Whatever could that be?

e.t.a.: You know how Fametracker does those audits to determine who a star is as famous as, and who s/he should be as famous as? Shouldn't Annie Lennox be at closer to Celine Dion-level fame and fortune? Her voice tonight was, as always, a gift. Beyond that, I rather liked Carrie Underwood's "I'll Stand By You," Jack Black's performance and the return of Verdine "Sexual Chocolate!" White. All this, and a discussion of the results, in Comments.
