Darius Rucker gets a surprise invite

Darius Rucker will give the commencement address at his alma mater, University of South Carolina, on May 11. Darius was shocked by the invitation but he’s very excited.  He says his message to the graduates is simple…..give back.  Darius and his group Hootie and the Blowfish formed when they were all enrolled at the school.

Keith Urban was in Nashville Tuesday night for his All For the Hall event to raise money for the Country Music Hall of Fame.  Last night he was back at the American Idol judges table to watch the top 5 perform 2 songs each.  One from the year they were born and the second category was Divas.

My favorite performance of the night was from Candice Glover who performed When You Believe, originally recorded by AI judge, Mariah Carey and the late Whitney Houston.
