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 »

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

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 »

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Randy Jackson, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez Network:  Fox, airs Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday Original Telecast: March 3, 2011 Not sure what I can say that I haven’t already said about the Top-24 performance on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL. Over the past two nights in my two reviews, I gave my opinion on who I thought America would choose (not who I want, but who they’d choose) including from the girls: Pia Toscano, Naima Adedapo, Thia Megia, Lauren Alaina and Ashthon Jones. From the boys: Jacob Lusk, James Durbin, Casey Abrams, Scotty McCreery and Stefano Langone. […]Read On »

Stars: Randy Jackson, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Ryan Seacrest Network: Fox, airs Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays Original Telecast: March 2, 2011 So last night was a mixture of good and very bad on the greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL. But tonight the chicks are in the spotlight and as we have seen in the prior episodes, after you separate about five out of the men, the women have the most talent this year. So I am going in expecting big things and a much better overall performance from the ladies. Bah, you don’t care what else I say, so let’s get […]Read On »

Time to put up or shut up. Go big or go home. Play ball or sit on the bench. Blow the place out or go down in flames. Can I come up any other clichés? Nope, so I’ll move on. We get the boys, er men first and given the quality we saw in the opening episodes of […]Read On »

Cast: Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson, Steven Tyler, Ryan Seacrest Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays Original Telecast: February 24, 2010 Holy crap if I have to hear J.Lo say “I can’t do this anymore” on AMERICAN IDOL one more time, I’m seriously going to punch someone. How many times must we see the same clip over and over again? They showed it like 20 times on Wednesday leading up to the actual moment and then for the previews for this episode.  Then we see it again for what seemed to be a dozen times in the beginning. We get it. […]Read On »

TV Review: AMERICAN IDOL – Season 10 – “Las Vegas Round”

You have access to the Beatles catalog.

We know. You’ve only shoved it down our throats year-after-year and letting us hear some of our favorite songs of all time get butchered again and again.

Yet, instead of taking a different tack and maybe doing a nice U2 night or an Aerosmith night (I mean come on you have Steven Tyler sitting right there), or a Chicago night, or even a freaking Metallica night, we once again get the Beatles.
