Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays Original Airdate: April 27, 2011 And then there were six on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL. After losing two men in a row, will the last females remaining continue to win over the hearts of America enough to stick around? We’ll see. And once again we are stuck doing just one performer for the entire night – Carole King. While the pop legend has a great catalog, why pigeonhole them and the audience into hearing all these songs? I got it that you …Read On »

10 AMERICAN IDOL fixes that can save the Fox franchise

With AMERICAN IDOL halfway through Season 10 with one of the best batches of vocalists in years, it’s time to take a look at what’s working with the show and what isn’t. Even though new judges Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez have added some spice to the judges tables, the lack of any real meaty criticisms have also been a detriment. That said, no matter how much IDOL feels like it’s Teflon, it will have serious competition from THE X FACTOR judged and mentored by former IDOL Simon Cowell. When people watch that show in the fall and realize what …Read On »

AMERICAN IDOL recap: Stefano Langone finally gets the overdramatic boot

Stefano Langone is eliminated on AMERICAN IDOL - Season 10 - Final 7 elimination night | ©2011 Fox/Michael Becker

So it was time for Stefano Langone to go home this week on Season 10 of the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL. Well, I can’t say that I didn’t see this one coming given I have predicted his departure from the show for the past four weeks in a row. And, honestly, he should have been gone a long time ago before this week. No way in hell Pia Toscano should be gone and not Stefano. With his crazy eyes, weird facial expressions and wacky overdramatic nature to his performances (not to mention his singing ballad after ballad) finally …Read On »

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays Original Telecast: April 23, 2011 Finally, we get a relevant theme night on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL. After having to wade through Motown night, Beatles night, movie night and a whole slew of other craptacular themes that challenge the competitors to try and bring an old song to the current day, we finally get a night where the contestants pick songs from the 2000-on. And we got a slew of great songs that people will actually recognize and be able to compare …Read On »

AMERICAN IDOL recap: Paul McDonald’s boring schtick finally gone the show

Paul McDonald is voted off on AMERICAN IDOL - Season 10 | ©2011 Fox/Michael Becker

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays Original Telecast: April 14, 2011 Well, I can hide my happiness over this elimination tonight on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL. From the start, I have never understood why Paul McDonald made it into the meat of the competition above some of the other talented people they had. I get it that he’s a cute guy or whatever, which appeals to the tweens voting but other than that … the guy is boring as watching mold grow on toast. Seriously, he’s as interesting …Read On »

TV Review: AMERICAN IDOL – Season 10 – The Top 8 Perform

AMERICAN IDOL - S10 - The Final 8

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays Original Telecast: April 13, 2011 After what I believe (and many others) was a shocking elimination of Pia Toscano last week on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL, what is going to happen this week? I don’t know if I would say the competition is up for grabs at this point given Casey Abrams almost got the boot and Pia got the ax as well, but it definitely opens up a can of possibilities. Perhaps the biggest question is, will another female be eliminated …Read On »

AMERICAN IDOL Shocker: Pia Toscano gone from the competition

AMERICAN IDOL - S10 - Pia Eliminated 2

Whenever Seacrest talks about a shocking results show, it usually happens on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL. Who would be shocking? Jacob Lusk or James Durbin going home, and, yes Pia Toscano going home was indeed shocking. She was by far the best chick in the competition. Not just in looks but in talent. It doesn’t make any sense except for this fact – the tweens dominate AMERICAN IDOL. Not a single dude has been kicked off the show. Not one! Yet, four chicks have been given the boot. The theory is TOTALLY being proved week after week. …Read On »

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Randy Jackson, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays Original Air Date: April 6, 2011 After losing two contestants last week on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL, there are no more second chances and whoever gets the least amount of votes now, is going home. Not sure how I feel about the “Judges Save” thing. On one hand I like it because they saved Casey two weeks ago. On the other hand, I’m not sure if anyone should get a second chance. However, it is a reality show, so I guess that …Read On »

AMERICAN IDOL Recap: Thia Megia and Naima Adedapo booted in double elimination on Season 10

Naima Adedapo and Thia Megia are voted off on AMERICAN IDOL - Season 10 | ©2011 Fox/Michael Becker

Payoff time on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL, but because Casey Abrams was saved last week that means we lose two tonight. So who will it be? Last week was a total 180-degree turn from where the audience had been voting previously, so maybe anything can happen. I am saving you from a decent duet, a bad duet, a horrible quintet, another horrible Ford commercial, a miserable performance from Fantasia, a so-so performance from Jamie Foxx and that douchebag Will.i.am Instead, let’s just get to it. Lauren Alaina and Scotty McCreery sing first and both are safe for …Read On »

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Randy Jackson, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez Network: Fox, Airs Wednesday and Thursday Original Telecast: March 30, 2011 Last week, Casey Abrams was saved by the judges on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL. While that’s good for Casey, that means we are deep-sixing two this week. Hopefully the voters will get out and vote for the right person to go home. As much as some people (especially TV critics) seem to jump all over Casey for his choices, the dude is a performer and one of the better singers on the show. We got yet another …Read On »
