American Idol XV Recap: Top 8 Perform

Last night, the Idol XV Top 8 were announced and with the exception of one individual, I couldn’t be happier with the final outcome. Unfortunately, we ended the night with an early frontrunner given the unfortunate boot while an underdog sang for their life and made us all sit up and take note. Ladies and […]

American Idol XIII Recap: Reviewing The Finale

After more than two dozen episodes, hundreds of performances, and twelve weeks of recaps by yours truly, we’re a little more than 12 hours away from finding out the winner of American Idol XIII. That’s…insane. I could be bitter and go on about how robbed Alex Preston was of a spot in the Top 2, but I’ve […]

American Idol Season 13 Contestants – 1st Set of Power Rankings Revealed

The thirteenth season of American Idol is firmly underway with returning judge Keith Urban along with Jennifer Lopez (former judge) and newcomer Harry Connick, Jr..  With previous producers Nigel Lythgoe and Ken Warwick out of the equation and FOX’s show attempting a full-on reboot and save for their former #1 show, things are looking very […]

American Idol Recap: Finale Review

Wow, can you believe American Idol is wrapping up its twelfth season already? I feel like the auditions were just yesterday, and speaking of…from the moment the season began, we had our frontrunner.

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’ Recap: Hollywood Week Pt. 1 (Guys)

Tears, sweat, blood, and shattered pride: This is…Hollywood Week. In what was a first for the long-standing television behemoth, American Idol decided to switch things up by having all the men compete against one another in this grueling yet pivotal round, then whittled down to twenty men standing by the end of the week (the […]

‘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 […]
