    American Idol Recap: Reviewing the Top 4

    Despite sharing the judges’ enthusiasm for prodigal talent Amber Holcomb, their slander and dismissal of Candice Glover on last night’s American Idol really boiled my blood. No contestant walked away unscathed as far as performances go — and don’t even get me started on those yucky duets — but to suggest Candice...

    American Idol Recap: Reviewing the Top 5

    After watching American Idol last night, it’s beyond evident who should be in the final two. In fact, I’ve felt this way since the Top 10. There are two girls that simply outshine the rest with their voice, stage presence, and exemplary taste in music. No way in heck is America going...

    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...

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

    Okay, now this is something we haven’t seen on American Idol. For the next two weeks, the judges will be cutting five girls on Wednesday and five boys on Thursday until the competition is narrowed down to the Top 20. This stage of the competition is known as the Sudden Death Round,...

    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...

    ‘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...

    ‘American Idol’ Week 1 Wrap-Up: Top 5 Contestants to Watch from New York & Chicago

      When it comes to reality television, American Idol is where my heart lies. As corny as that sounds, it is absolutely true. For ten years, I have watched every season, seen every episode, and rooted for god knows how many contestants to win. Not a single year has a favorite of...

    ‘American Idol’ Recap: Reviewing the Top 5

    Welcome to the American Idol Top Five Week! With the contestants tackling songs from the best in British music, I’m not sure the producers needed to add another theme of “songs from the 1960s.” Let’s face it: the best music from the 60s WAS from the Brits. Aside from that nonsensical maneuver,...

    ‘American Idol’ Recap: Reviewing the Top 6

    It was another fantastic week on American Idol except for two individuals who have been pimped enough times by the judges to cause a severe case of indefinite nausea. We’ll get to those two contestants in a minute, but I’m pleased to say that Queen week was a success, and — shockingly,...

    ‘American Idol’ Recap: Reviewing the Top 8

    The Top 8 on American Idol did their best to cover a wacky and wild decade for music, AKA The 80s. While some had hits, there wasn’t a single performance I would rewind for very long. Oh sure, two in particular definitely threw down the gauntlet but in sum, the songs overshadowed...

    ‘American Idol’ Recap: Reviewing the Top 9

    This week on American Idol, the standing ovations were at an all time rise, pun intended. I swear, there were about five standing ovations for the whole performance evening — an Idol record to be sure. These ridiculous moments of praise may be our next big drinking game following Melissa McCarthy’s “Scorsese”...

    ‘American Idol’ Recap: Reviewing the Top 10

    There were two, count em two, moment-making performances last night on American Idol. I was a bit worried at the beginning of the show, but there were five or so performers who absolutely nailed Billy Joel’s spirit and complex note arrangements by show’s end. “Billy Joel” theme week was a success by...

    ‘American Idol’ Recap: Reviewing the Top 13

    American Idol was a bit of a mixed bag last night as far as performances go, but my god some select individuals really shattered my expectations. After eleven seasons, Idol still manages to surprises us from time to time. Last night was no exception, and I’m not even solely referring to teen...

    Welcome everyone to night two of the American Idol Season 11 Semifinals! Let’s face it — Tuesday was a bit of a disaster as far as talent goes, but thank god the girls came along when they did. This is completely the opposite of what happened last season, where the boys delivered...

    American Idol Recap: Reviewing the Top 13 Boys

    Wow…I’m going to have to really take a breather on this one, folks. American Idol last night proved to us that it will definitely be hard to replicate the magic of last season. I know, it really was awful having Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina as the final two standing, but there...

    ‘American Idol’ Recap: Top 24 Revealed

    After many tears of disappointment and joy, American Idol has made its final decision on the Top 24 for Season Eleven. I have to say, this lineup looks about as impressive as last year’s. Other than a few contestants (Adam Brock….ugh…..), this is a solid group of performers, who all in their...

    ‘American Idol’ Recap: Vegas Round and Top 42 Revealed

    Lights, camera, Vegas! Welcome to another episode of…American Idol. Not only was this episode the best of the entire season thus far, but it finally proved why Randy has been so high on Season Eleven for the past two weeks. Let’s face it, Hollywood Week was a miserable mess, and a trip...

    ‘American Idol’ Hollywood Week Recap: Group Rounds and Final Solos

    Welcome back to another week of American Idol. Well, I guess I cannot complain too much because unlike last episode, which seemed silly to write a recap, people were actually singing instead of an hour showcasing DRAMA, DRAMA, DRAMA! However, I nearly keeled over in shock when Randy Jackson said of all...

    ‘American Idol’ Hollywood Week Recap: Day One

    Woe is me, for American Idol has just reached a new low this week, with the introduction of Hollywood Week being eclipsed by one singer’s dramatic collapse from the stage. Really, Idol, are you going to capitalize on the drama of a contestant by ending the episode on a cliffhanger with her...

    Picking the Top 5 Contestants to Watch from Portland and St. Louis. We have officially completed the audition phase for American Idol Season 11. Hard to believe, right?
