American Idol Update

On Wednesday November 12th, Carrie Underwood co-hosts Country Music's Biggest Night with Brad Paisley when they host the CMA's on ABC at 8 p.m. eastern time.

At the funeral of Jennifer Hudson's mom, brother, and nephew- Fantasia Barrino sang and held the hand of her former Idol castmate. Almost two weeks following the brutal killings, police have not named a killer; William Balfour, the brother in law of Hudson is still in police custody as a person of interest. On October 24th, 57 year old Darnell Donerson and 29 year old Jason Hudson were found shot dead in their Chicago apartment. Three days later, Julia Hudson's (Jennifer's sister) son 7 year old Julian King was found dead in a white SVU that police had been searching for. Police believe he was killed in that car. The motive for the murders still remains a mystery; however, if Balfour did commit the crimes police have said that he was having disagreements with his estranged wife Julia shortly before the killings took place (definite motive!).
