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 »

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays Original Telecast: May 19, 2011 And then there were two on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL. Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina are in the finals and next week will battle it out for the numero uno position of the season. The big cheese. The top dog. The ace of spades. But who will it be? That means that Haley Reinhart was eliminated this week despite perhaps being the strongest singer left in the competition and having the better performances last night. It’s too […]Read On »

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

AMERICAN IDOL: The Final Three: L-R: Haley Reinhart, Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina | | ©2011 Fox/Michael Becker

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays Original Telecast: May 18, 2011 There was a lot of pomp and circumstance on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL, this week. Lots of looking back at the final three and how they got this spot, but one more has to go before the finals during Season 10 of this powerhouse series. So I’m skipping all that filler (since they boosted it to two hours this week) and going right to the heart of the matter – the performances. Beyonce was the guest mentor this week […]Read On »

AMERICAN IDOL Season 10 recap: Another SHOCKER as James Durbin goes home

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays Original Telecast: May 12, 2011 Well, the contest is anyone’s ball game after losing James Durbin on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL. This was a complete shock. James has never been in the bottom at all. He was the only one to never be in the bottom. Yet, he’s gone. I figured that James was a lock for the finals. He was and is such a good singer. He rocked the house every single time he was on stage. I can’t believe that […]Read On »

Song Reviews: AMERICAN IDOL – TOP 4 SEASON 10 album

AMERICAN IDOL: The Final 4: Haley Reinhart, Scotty McCreery, James Durbin and Lauren Alaina | ©2011 Fox/Michael Becker

After last night’s strange episode of AMERICAN IDOL – Season 10, where the Top 4 contestants sang two songs apiece (one that inspires, the other from the Jerry Leiber/Mike Stoller songbook), it was clear the judges are still all over the map when it comes to criticism and what an IDOL should exactly be (okay, one map, everyone is great EXCEPT Haley). While James Durbin, Lauren Alaina and Scotty McCreery have gotten pretty much a free ride to the Top 4 with nary a critique (especially when they blow hard), Haley Reinhart has had to claw her way into her […]Read On »

TV Review: AMERICAN IDOL – Season 10 – “The Top 4 Perform”

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays Original Telecast: May 11, 2011 We are down to nearly the home stretch on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL. And lucky the theme of the night was not Randy Jackson’s “Who is in it to win it” but more about the home stretch and who will either falter or bring home the bacon. Each four contestants sang two songs again tonight: The first, songs that are meaningful to the contestants; the second, songs from the writing combo of Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller […]Read On »
