Stars: Randy Jackson, Keith Urban, Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj, Ryan Seacrest Network: Airs on Fox, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8 pm Original Telecast: Feb. 27, 2013 Finally, America gets involved on the world’ greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL, as we are down to the Top 10 chicks and Top 10 dudes that make up the finals. Does anyone care is a good question to ask given the bottoming out of the ratings but we’ll just put that on the back burner for the duration. First up is the ladies of the competition, the next night will be the dudes and […]Read On »

TV Review: AMERICAN IDOL – Season 11 – “Final Judgment, Part 1”

AMERICAN IDOL Season 11 Final Judgment Part 1 | © 2012 Fox

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: Feb. 22, 2012 It was once again time for mass amounts of drama on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL, as we dwindle the remaining 42 contestants down to a svelte Top-24. And then the real competition begins and we can all start voting and kick off the really good, cute chicks because the tweens hates chicks and keep in a bunch of terrible singers that have no place in the competition and … huh, what’s that you say?

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 »

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 »

AMERICAN IDOL recap: Jacob Lusk finally gets the hook

Jacob Lusk is eliminated on AMERICAN IDOL - Season 10 - Final 5 | ©2011 Fox/Michael Becker

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, Airs Wednesdays and Thursdays Original Telecast: May 5, 2011 Last night, I posed the question if anything could prevent Jacob Lusk from going home this week on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL. The answer is no. As he was sent home finally after being in the bottom three for the past three or four weeks on the show. It was only a matter of time in my opinion as there was a reason he was in the bottom for a number of weeks – he had gotten […]Read On »

TV Review: AMERICAN IDOL – Season 10 – “The Top 5 Perform”

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, Airs Wednesdays and Thursdays Original Telecast: May 4, 2011 Who is in it to win on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL? So Randy Jackson just loves to repeat the same crap over and over again. I know, you’re shocked. You’ve never heard that before, I’m sure. The first couple of seasons it was all about “pitchy.” Later, it was “dawg” and “keeping it real” and “yo yo yo.” This season it is “Who is in it to win it!?” My God, if I hear him say it […]Read On »

AMERICAN IDOL recap: (Surprise) Casey Abrams is sent packing (again)

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays Original Airdate: April 28, 2011 I guess two times is not a charm on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL, because Casey Abrams, who was saved from elimination earlier in the season and thrived for a number of weeks, got the boot on the show in what is probably a surprise. Maybe it wasn’t a fluke the first time he got the lowest amount of votes. Maybe the IDOL voters are more fickle than I give them credit for. I thought he did pretty […]Read On »

TV Review: AMERICAN IDOL – Season 10 – “The Top 6 Perform”

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

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 »
