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”

AMERICAN IDOL: The Final 6: L-R: Haley Reinhart, Scotty McCreery, James Durbin, Lauren Alaina, Casey Abrams and Jacob Lusk | ©2011 Fox/Michael Becker

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 »

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 »
