Last night's "The Voice" did not disappoint. We saw a full range of performances, a judges' brawl and Britney got bangs. If that's not excitement then I don't know what is. Tonight though, we had to say goodbye to four more singers (one from each group) - including David Correy, the adopted Annapolis singer whose "X Factor" journey began as a way to find his biological mother in Brazil. But more on that later. Demi's young adults were first on the chopping block. She first saved Jennel Garcia and Paige Thomas, in her crazy, giant hat. This was no real shock as the judges loved them last night.

Brave New Girl is either payback or an investment. There's no way any self-respecting network, even one as low in the pecking order as ABC Family Channel, would commission such a trite film without ulterior motives. Brave New Girl merited special treatment because it is based on a book supposedly written by Britney Spears and her mother, Lynne. Other candidates for the Nobel in literature can rest easy. But Britney, a published author? The mind reels. Little Golden Books have more complex plots than Brave New Girl (tonight at 8 and 10 on the Family Channel)

Last week on the “X Factor” we had Demi and Simon's teams fight for the final spots. This week it's Britney and L.A.'s turn! L.A. is still pretty upset with getting the over 25's and has absolutely no problem showing that to his category. Jason Brock came through trying to sing “Big Girls Don't Cry.” He was right on pitch but L.A. and Justin Bieber feared that he may not be worth the $5M pay out. Annapolis' David Correy sang “Domino.” The song was almost unrecognizable.

BOSTON - Who would have believed that Britney Spears would end up striking a blow for gay marriage? I'm not talking about the pop star's fleeting moments with Madonna. I'm talking about her fleeting hours with Jason Allen Alexander. The newly wed and unwed Britney began her career as a professional virgin telling little-girl fans they could be sexy without having sex before marriage. Then year by year, hit by hit, she performed a professional striptease act, from plaid skirt to Esquire buff, from Justin Timberlake to Jason Alexander.

There's more buzz about pop star Britney Spears, and this time it's about a buzz of her own making -- a buzz cut, that is. Britney's gone bald. At a Los Angeles salon this past weekend, the singer apparently decided to shave off her locks, causing many observers to debate the state of her mental health. Some have called the spontaneous shearing a cry for help. Others say the move might indicate the onset of a nervous breakdown. Then there are those who say the sudden baldness might be positive for Spears -- a step toward redefining herself and taking control of her seemingly unstable life.

Pop star Britney Spears was wheeled out of her Los Angeles home on a gurney late Thursday and involuntarily hospitalized after a three-hour child-custody standoff with police and bodyguards for her ex-husband, Kevin Federline. Even as the ambulance drove away, paparazzi who follow the singer everywhere ran behind the vehicle, holding up their cameras to shoot the troubled singer through the vehicle's rear windows. Authorities were called to Spears' home in the 12000 block of Summit Circle about 8 p.m. Thursday after Federline's bodyguards went to her house to pick up Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1, who were scheduled to return to their father's custody, authorities said.

They call him Perry Poppins. Perry Taylor, a former Naval Academy lacrosse player, has been spotted pushing pop star Britney Spears' baby stroller recently and schlepping her groceries. The tabloids have dubbed the 28-year-old former Easton resident Britney's "manny," or male nanny. "Actually, he's more of a bodyguard," said his mother, Caroline Moncure-Taylor, a Washington real estate agent who said that Taylor has worked for Spears for less than a month. Already, though, he's making supermarket headlines.

Britney Spears calls her second album, the follow-up to her multi platinum debut, "Oops! ... I Did It Again." At least she got the first word right. Unlike fellow teeny-poppers 'N Sync or the Backstreet Boys, Spears shows no signs of maturity or musical growth. Quite the contrary. "Oops! ... I Did It Again" (Jive 01241-41704, arriving in stores today) is even more juvenile than its predecessor, the 12-million selling "Baby One More Time." Never mind that the album's title track has her half-boasting, "I'm not that innocent"; the persona Spears projects in these tunes is anything but adult.

Video Music Awards 7 p.m. [MTV] If you missed it the first time around on Sunday night, catch a replay and see how Michael Phelps (right) did as he embarks on his Media Overexposure Tour. I missed the show because of a Britney Spears filter on my television, but maybe Phelps could be seen trying to persuade Katy Perry that she really shouldn't kiss a girl.

Three weeks in and we're almost done with the auditions. We've seen it all -- the good, the bad, and the ugly. It's always been entertaining though. On this episode, we heard from two Maryland contestants. One made a lasting impression and the other ... not so much. More on that later.  We started off with Britney playing pranks on the assistant. She asked for a straw hat (for no reason) and a crown (for no reason.) She's so crazy! The auditions kicked of back in Providence, Rhode Island.

Pop fans, who are you going to see on Sunday, Britney Spears or Dolly Parton? The dueling concerts on Sunday - Dolly's at the Wolf Trap ; Britney's at the Verizon Center - are like a rare lunar event, a diva showtown that pits fans of both to pick one over the other. On one corner, you have Dolly, who's been wearing tacky, sequined gowns for four decades now. And on the other corner is Britney, an upstart in comparison who's only been wearing the (often medicated)

Soon-to-be tour buddies and new BFFs Britney Spears and Nicki Minaj blessed the Internet last Friday with a remix of Spears' robotic single, "Till the World Ends. " As usual, Minaj's opening verse is pure thievery: vocal tics (it's a wonder how Minaj's blown-out-animation schtick still has these kinds of legs) and thinly veiled diss lines at Lil Kim make the Young Money artist a zany, welcome addition. Where as Britney can sound so processed on tape, Minaj's larger-than-life performance matches the in-the-red party production.

This space has been sorely missing pop posts, so let's start Wednesday with an Apocalypse-Fun face-melter — Britney Spears' new video, "Till the World Ends. " Spears' comeback hasn't been earth-shaking, but it has been sneakily effective, thanks to the surgeon-precise hands behind the boards (Dr. Luke and Max Martin did this song and the excellent, dubstep-informed "Hold It Against Me"). And "Till the World Ends" adds Ke$ha (as a songwriter) into the fold, a star whose sleazy persona chips away at good taste until you realize she's the reason the party feels so right.

Somehow it doesn't seem fair how all sorts of people are making money on the Britney Spears marriage-annulment, while Brit and her one-time hubby, Jason Allen Alexander, get left out in the cold. The Star shelled out $100,000 for a photo of the happy couple. The hip fashion statement of the moment is the "I'm the Guy That Married Britney" T-shirt from tshirthell.com. (Has Madonna already been spotted wearing that?) And it's only a matter of time until the rights to Mr. Britney's story get sold.

I WASN'T there, so I can't comment." That's Lindsay Lohan's press rep, Leslie Sloane Zelnick, responding to reports that her talented client, supposedly clean and sober, was zonked out on vodka cocktails the other night in Manhattan. I like this answer. It works best, whatever the truth of the situation. I suppose all reps should use it in the first hours of a story breaking. Miss Lohan was photographed with eyes closed and hand to head in a car outside the club where she reportedly imbibed.

When Jamie Hovey got a text message about the death of actor Heath Ledger, he quickly went to the Internet. Moments later, the 29-year-old Columbia resident was distraught. It wasn't because the entertainment world had suffered the loss of a rising star. Hovey was dismayed because he discovered someone else had claimed Ledger in his celebrity fantasy league. Hovey is part of the growing number of entertainment world fans who take part in the leagues, which operate like the more established fantasy sports leagues.
