'Diff'rent Strokes' actor Gary Coleman dies at 42

Posted: 03:07 PM ET

(CNN) - Former child star Gary Coleman, who rose to fame as the wisecracking youngster Arnold Jackson on the TV sitcom "Diff'rent Strokes" but grew up to grapple with a troubled adulthood, has died. He was 42.

Coleman died of a brain hemorrhage at a Provo, Utah hospital, Friday afternoon, according to a hospital spokeswoman. The actor fell ill at his Santaquin, Utah, home Wednesday evening and was rushed by ambulance to a hospital, Coleman's spokesman had said in a statement earlier Friday.

He was then taken to another hospital - Utah Valley Regional Medical Center in Provo - later Wednesday night.

In the late '70s and early '80s, Coleman was one of television's brightest stars, the personality around which NBC's "Strokes" - the story of two inner-city children who are taken in by a wealthy businessman, his daughter and their housekeeper - was built.

Bo Bice: I love what Idol’s given me

Posted: 03:01 PM ET

"American Idol" season 4 runner-up Bo Bice is back with a new album, a new baby and a new appreciation for the people in Nashville after the devastating floods earlier this month.

Bo’s new album, “3,”  was released last week and his single, “Long Road Back,” is being used to raise money for flood victims.  All proceeds from the single will be donated to a variety of flood assistance programs for people in Nashville as they recover and rebuild.

Bo recently spoke to us at the Larry King Live blog about his time on "Idol," why he loves it and how Nashville is doing these days…

LKL:  "American Idol" – it’s an exclusive club that you guys have been through...

Bo Bice: I was hanging out with one of the "Idol" folks this year.  A lot of us live in Nashville and you know that conversation came up.  There’s been a decade of "Idol."  Next year’s going to be the 10th anniversary.  Thinking about the big picture in the world, there’s only 100 people who know what its like to be in the top ten come next year. And that out of all the people that have tried out and worked hard there, I think that’s a really cool perspective on the true greatness of the show.

It’s nothing that I did.  I was just in the right place at the right time. I think the band – I wouldn’t have gotten so far without them being on the show. There are just all kinds of stars that lined up for me where I really give credit to the show and the producers who do a great job and the crew. It just made my job easy –got out there and pick songs that I love and go out and do my best to perform it.

LKL: I mean you must have had a little bit to do with it, too…

Bo: Well I mean I got to hold the microphone stand. [Laughs]  But it’s not really anything different than what I was doing 15 years before I went on the show.

LKL: But it’s obviously changed your life?

Bo: Oh goodness gracious!  It’s changed everything.  All the goals that I’ve accomplished, I’ve been able really do them plus a million.  From having my own recording studio and record label to doing the production myself with friends I trust who understand what I do and who I am as an artist.  The cool thing for me is that "Idol" has helped me accomplish more than those dreams I had.  I probably wouldn’t have been able to indulge myself had I not had the success I did from the show.

'American Idol' – Congrats to Lee, and adios to Simon

Posted: 07:54 AM ET

Lee DeWyze has been named the winner of the ninth season of American Idol, triumphing over judges’ favourite Crystal Bowersox, reported the Daily Mail.

The 24-year-old from Illinois stole the show by taking the recording contract prize in Idols finale that aired live on Tuesday, with millions of US people casting their votes in what was judge Simon Cowell’s last ever show.

But it turned out that that it was  a closely call, when host Ryan Seacrest revealed that the pair entered the final show with just two per cent of votes dividing them.

Meanwhile, a lighthearted film package recounting highlights from the Cowell years was shown, and comedian Dane Cook came on stage to sing Simon Says, made up of the Brit’s barbed comments, and to crack a few jokes.

“You have the honesty of Abe Lincoln and the charm of the guy who shot him,” Cook told Cowell, who took the ribbing with a smile.
