A ‘Twilight’/’American Idol’ Connection, Kevin Smith And Shaun White In Today’s Twitter-Wood

Twilight” watchers now have their pitch for which contestant to support in the “American Idol” finals. Apparently Didi Benami and actress Rachelle LeFevre go way back. LeFevre had a lot of vocal support when Bryce Dallas Howard replaced her as Victoria for “Eclipse,” so it may be interesting to see if her followers are also impressionable “Idol” voters.

Heated though it may be, “American Idol” competition has had to go head-to-head with Winter Olympics competition this week, and Shaun White and Lindsey Vonn were on everyone’s tweets last night. After the jump, you can check out who was watching, as well as who remains suspicious of Kevin Smith, who touched Rebecca Gayheart’s baby and who’s been hanging out on the set of “Thor.” It’s all in Twitter-Wood for February 18, 2010.
