Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays @ 9 p.m. Original Telecast: Feb. 8, 2012 So after literally a month of craptacular auditions we are finally to the meat of the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL. The audition rounds are so eight season ago. They really need to truncate it and get right to the competition because it is no longer holds the interest that it once did. Luckily, we are past that part now. Last year they finally gave us an extended look at the Hollywood Round, where the judges […]Read On »

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, airs on Wednesdays and Thursdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: Feb. 2, 2012 Luckily for us, this is the last of the auditions on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL. The real show begins next week with Hollywood Week and hopefully we will get a similar treatment as we did last year where we get expanded coverage of the process as it is the most interesting part of the show – maybe even better than the individual performances when it gets to the Top 12. Not to beat […]Read On »

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson, Steven Tyler Network: Fox, Airs @ 8 p.m. Wednesdays and Thursdays Original Telecast: Jan. 25, 2012 So here we are again for yet another round of the same ole, same ole on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL, coming from lovely Aspen, for what I believe the first time in the show’s history. First the good news, IDOL was only one hour tonight instead of the usual two. The bad news is that there was literally nothing different from the other three audition episodes other than the people singing (and for the […]Read On »

TV Review: AMERICAN IDOL – Season 11 – “Auditions No. 1 – Savannah” – Season Premiere

Cast: Randy Jackson, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Ryan Seacrest Network: Fox, airs on Wednesdays and Thursdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: Jan. 18, 2012 I found the premiere episode of the 11th season of the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL, extremely amusing. No, not because of the lack of talent that was displayed traditionally, but because they focused on how many talents have come through the show in that span. I’m amused because it has been 10 years of going through these painfully bad auditions – again, not talking about the lack of talent, but the very fact that they […]Read On »

TCA News: Fox wants to keep Ryan Seacrest on AMERICAN IDOL

After watching THE X FACTOR host Steve Jones struggle throughout the first season, it became quite clear that Ryan Seacrest is a natural when it comes to handling contestants, overruns and political correctness on AMERICAN IDOL. This was not lost on Fox Entertainment President Kevin Reilly who says that job “is much harder than meets the idea.” “Everyone has come to value the idea of a Ryan Seacrest,” says Reilly. “It’s a very hard job to do.” The question is, how much is he worth? If Fox has it’s way, they definitely want to keep him in the IDOL fold, […]Read On »

TV Review: THE X FACTOR – SEASON 1 – “Auditions No. 1” – Series Premiere

Cast: Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, Antonio Reid, Cheryl Cole, Nicole Scherzinger Network: Fox, airs on Wednesdays and Thursdays Original Telecast: Sept. 21, 2011 I’ve got a funny feeling going here … Simon Cowell (and his too-tight shirts and new eyeliner) and Paul Abdul (and her crying and weird clapping) doing a music competition/reality show. A bunch of talented singers and a bunch of crazies and losers. Similar audition stories and a pompous host that is more annoying than anything else. But wait … it’s still hot outside? So yeah there are a little too many familiarities to THE X FACTOR […]Read On »

AMERICAN IDOL recap and photos: Scotty McCreery wins AMERICAN IDOL – Season 10!

Thankfully, this is the end of the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL. At least for this year. The bad news is that now I gotta now cover THE VOICE – thanks a lot boss! Obviously, the big news is that Scotty McCreery won the whole kit and caboodle, got the grand prize and is now the head cheese, the top dog, the numero uno. And that means that Lauren Alaina came in a distant (or maybe close) second. In the end, the actual competition portion from Tuesday night was quite boring in my opinion as they did songs they […]Read On »

TV Review: AMERICAN IDOL – Season 10 – “Two Finalists Compete”

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, airs Tuesday and Wednesday Original Telecast: May 24, 2011 It is the last chance to impress on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL. Either it will be country singing Scotty McCreery or country and adult contemporary singing Lauren Alaina? Maybe a better question is: Why is Seacrest is a tuxedo? Is this that big of a deal? I don’t see anyone else decked out to the nines. The three rounds are divided into 1) the favorite song of the season from the contestants 2) a song picked by […]Read On »

Ten Reasons Why Lauren Alaina will win AMERICAN IDOL – Season 10

Lauren Alaina in AMERICAN IDOL: TOP 24 | ©2011 Fox/Michael Becker

At this point, the AMERICAN IDOL race comes down to two country singers – Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina. They’ve beaten all the odds and are now the Final Two (despite people shocked that frontrunners Casey Abrams, James Durbin didn’t make it – and of course Haley Reinhart missing the coveted Top Two as well). So now it comes down to who is in it, to win it (Randy Jackson’s catchphrase this season) and tonight, Lauren has to step up her game, shake her usually rattled nerves and show the world why she should be the next Carrie Underwood. Here […]Read On »

Here are the ten reasons why Scotty will succeed in being America’s first male country IDOL. 1) That deep […]Read On »
