You've probably heard about Diana DeGarmo's many roles in Broadway shows lately, and here's just a reminder to go see her as Penny Pingleton in Hairspray. The show runs every night Tuesday through Saturday until May 14 at the Neil Simon Theatre in New York.

Also on March 25, you can meet Kimberley Locke at the Lane Bryant at The Summit Sierra in Reno, from 12PM-2PM. The first 100 in line will get an autographed copy of her new single, “Supawoman”.
While Season 4 winner Carrie Underwood has just landed 41 new tour dates and many appearances with huge country artists such as Keith Urban, Phil Vassar, and Montgomery Gentry, the place you'll be seeing her this month is on TV. Hopefully, you caught her singing her single, "Jesus Take the Wheel", on the results show of American Idol last week. On March 13, Carrie will appear on the "Late Show with David Letterman" at 11:35PM ET/PT, and on March 14, she'll be on "Live with Regis and Kelly" at 9AM ET/PT. During these shows, she'll be singing her new single, "Don't Forget to Remember Me". Carrie will also headline a live performance with Lee Ann Womack and Loretta Lynn on a special episode of "Grand Ole Opry Live", called "Women of Country" on March 18.
I know you've all been waiting for that Reality TV Celebrity edition of Fear Factor, and it's finally here. Competing is the American Idol pair Anthony Fedorov and Carmen Rasmusen of Season 4 and Season 2, respectively. The show will air on March 21, 28, and April 4. According to Carmen's website, Carmen wrote a song about her experience on the show called "You Scare Me to Death". Sounds like a hit.
Please don't forget to watch "Idol Chat" on TV Guide Channel every Tuesday...you'll get to see Season 2's Kimberly Caldwell discuss Idol matters with fellow correspondent Rosanna Tavarez and interview former Idols such as AJ Gil, who visited this past week.
