‘American Idol’ notes: Hollie Cavanagh, Kris Allen, and Cheryl Cole

They're having a great time.

You can play a game with the above subjects in our newest “American Idol” notes to see which name doesn’t belong, but it is probably pretty obvious to anyone who looks at it.

Hollie and Joshua have fun at Disney World – As we’ve been reporting for days now, a number of the recent season 11 contestants are spending a bit of time celebrating their past few days in sunny Orlando, and it led to Hollie Cavanagh posting the pictures to the left of this article.

In a post on Twitter, the fourth-place finisher from this season joked that Joshua got scared rather quickly on some of the rides — which has led to us formal a mental image of him screaming as he goes down Space Mountain.

Kris performs on Memorial Day parade – In the video below, you can see Kris Allen doing something that few singers actually try to do — actually sing rather than lip-sync during a parade. The season 8 alum was a guest performing at the official Washington DC Memorial Day Parade event on Monday morning, and he of course took advantage of the opportunity to perform his single “The Vision of Love.”

You can check out a video of the performance below (via Mjsbigblog.)

Cheryl Cole not joining “Idol” – The following story is hardly a surprise, and to be honest it’s rather shocking that it even took off to begin with as a story. Despite some random rumors that started to circulate last week, former “X Factor” judge Cheryl Cole is not set to replace Jennifer Lopez as a judge. (This was confirmed by Fremantle North America, who produces the show.)

While signs do point to J.Lo’s exit after just two seasons, it’s far too early to speculate on replacements — and if she does leave, we don’t expect anyone who is not a huge star in America to be asked. We actually loved Cheryl during her brief stints as an “X Factor” judge here in America, but for whatever reason it didn’t work out.

As always, stay tuned for more “Idol” news!
