Looking to bask in a little stardust this weekend?

Carrie Underwood, one of the biggest talents ever launched by “American Idol,” comes to KeyArena Saturday. Her new album, “Blown Away,” debuted at no. 1 on the Billboard country album chart. Read a preview of the concert written by a new Seattle Times contributor, Lou Lunden. At last look, tickets were still available.

Mikhail Baryshnikov, perhaps the greatest male dancer of the age, was a last-minute addition to the program presented by Mark Morris Dance Group at On the Boards this weekend. While you may not see the technical pyrotechnics that Baryshnikov was known for in his youth, you are sure to see a great theatrical artist in a rare Northwest performance. Sadly, the show is sold out, but if there’s anyone worth standing in front of the theater for, trying to grub a ticket, Baryshnikov is it.

Batman: Don’t laugh. Isn’t Batman a superstar? And this you can get tickets for. “The Dark Knight Rises” is just $3 at the Crest this weekend. Read Moira Macdonald’s review of one of the best movies of the summer here.

Want more ideas of things to do this weekend — including “Pullman Porter Blues” and Issaquah Salmon Days? See this video weekend preview, recorded at KING 5 TV this morning:
