American Idol Recap: Reviewing the Top 4 (Again)

After a non-elimination results show last Thursday, the American Idol Top 4 are back again for your votes. The theme this week was “Then and Now,” which is pretty self-explanatory but I’ll still be cordial and break it down: one song is a “Standard” and the other is one from 2013. Easy, right? Well apparently […]

American Idol Recap: Reviewing the Top 9

I know this theme has been recycled time and time again, but how can you say “no” to The Beatles? My dad grew up with their music and had it on blast all throughout my childhood, so there’s no way I can be anything less than ecstatic whenever American Idol contestants take the stage and […]

“Music of the American Idols” Theme Week: Song Suggestions for the ‘Idol’ Top 10

American Idol Recap: The Semifinals (Top 10 Guys)

That, ladies and gentlemen, was a rough night of American Idol. I get that the producers want a girl to win this season, but if you’re going to sabotage the “evil” gender, at least do it subtly. The Idol bigwigs and vocal coaches who sent these guys out to perform had to know full well some […]

American Idol Recap: The Semifinals (Top 10 Girls)

At last, the true talent of American Idol Season 12 has arrived. The Top 10 girls performed on last night’s semifinals show, and lord have mercy if a female doesn’t win this year. There were five performances out of this group that took me to a realm I like to call musical paradise. Unfortunately, the […]

American Idol Recap: Sudden Death Round, Week 2 (The Guys)

It’s quite evident that I’ll need to defend American Idol Season 12 all year long. Between the falling ratings and noticeable anger on Twitter, I feel like it’s 2007 all over again where I passionately stood up for Season 6. Yes, I understand that many of the singers showcased in the Top 40 were horrible […]

American Idol Recap: Sudden Death Round, Week One (The Boys)

Last night, American Idol sprung some more talent on us in the form of ten boys from Season 12’s Top 40. The men were nowhere near as stellar as Wednesday’s girl group, but the top five who sailed on through to the next round were all deserving. In an unprecedented, unexpected moment, Thursday’s show introduced us […]

American Idol Recap: Hollywood Week Part 2 (The Girls)

Welcome back, Idol imbibers! For the second part of Hollywood Week, the girls took center stage and unleashed their powers of musical persuasion in the hopes America would be more impressed than last week’s stellar showing from the guys. Collectively, I believe the men are a stronger group this season, but individually there are some […]

‘American Idol’ Week 2 Wrap-Up: Top 5 to Watch From Charlotte and Baton Rouge

Another week, another feud, another outstanding display of talent in what’s shaping up to be an incredible season of American Idol. Somehow, each new episode either has me laughing, in awe, or incredibly jealous I’m not there in person to get my hair finger-groomed by Nicki Minaj! Okay, that’s a bit overkill but I can’t […]
