Stars: Randy Jackson, Keith Urban, Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj, Ryan Seacrest Network: Airs on Fox, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8 pm Original Telecast: March 7, 2013 It was traffic that may have grabbed the headlines on the opening night of the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL, thanks to the tardiness of judge Nicki Minaj, but the real question is will the boys be able to keep up with what seems to be a very strong contingent of women singers this season. The opening competition of the Top 10 focused on songs that previous IDOL winners have done – whether […]Read On »

In case you missed this week’s performances, I recapped the women and men. I loved the Seacrest opened the show trying to prove how “dynamic” this season was because they had more votes than they did last season at this point. Of course, this is out there […]Read On »

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 It was more of the live performances to decide who would make up the Top 20 on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL. Admittedly, I have watched only bits and pieces of this year’s show, as it turns out I’m not the only one that isn’t tuning in. IDOL is at its lowest point in terms of ratings in more than a decade (when the show was just into its second year run). […]Read On »

Stars: Randy Jackson, Keith Urban, Maria Carey, Nicki Minaj, Ryan Seacrest Airs: Wednesday and Thursdays on Fox @ 8 pm Original Telecast: Jan. 16, 2013 This is the worst time of the year for me. Football is slowly coming to an end. We have at least another two months of winter. All the major holidays are far away. And, yes, the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL, is back on the air. Yes, time for the most popular of the talent shows to once again give us a healthy dose of overexposure, bad auditions and not enough actual good singing. […]Read On »

Early in the day at Fox’s 2012 Summer TCA Press Tour, AMERICAN IDOL producer Nigel Lythgoe spoke about the judge turnover on the show with Steven Tyler out and Jennifer Lopez saying he hoped Lopez would stay. “I was really upset to hear of Steven leaving us and the possibility of Jennifer leaving us,” says Lythgoe. “She did say 99 percent she was leaving. It’s a strange thing to say 99 percent – you’re either leaving or not leaving. I’m hoping that one percent she’s not leaving. Two hours later and that 99% turned into 100% confirmation from Fox Entertainment […]Read On »

She’s an artist many contestants have tried to emulate and […]Read On »

AMERICAN IDOL Season 11 Recap: Phillip Phillips slays Jessica Sanchez to become the frontrunner for the Season 11 victory

AMERICAN IDOL has become more predictable as it ages. And if anyone thinks Jessica Sanchez is going to win over Phillip Phillips is seriously mistaken. The Tween girls rule IDOL, which is why cute guys tend to win the show over cute girls. This year however, if you compare the two finalists and the songs they sang, it was obvious, one was the clear winner. And your winner, though not yet crowned, is Phillip Phillips. Yes, there could be some producer trickery and Sanchez could pull an upset, but it would be insincere to say the least. The rundown of […]Read On »
