Season finale of American Idol last night. Both Mimi and JLo performed. Mimi threw down a medley of her greatest hits -- I always forget how much I love We Belong Together -- culminating in her current smash #Beautiful. It was... a little lip-synchy, right?

Dear Gossips,

Didn’t think Diddy/Daddy/Puffy’s Downton Abbey parody was good. Then again, Downton Abbey isn’t good. So in that sense, the marriage of Diddy to Downton was perfect. Totally makes sense.
