An Open Letter To Lauren Alaina

Dear Lauren,

You don't know me, but my name is Chad Benefield and I do mornings at 92.5 WBKR, a country radio station in Owensboro, KY.  We are situated just about 120 miles from Nashville, TN, where you stood on the stage of the historic Ryman Auditorium and knocked the socks off of Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson, Steven Tyler and the rest of the America with your version of "I Don't Want To Miss A Thing."  I watched that performance, saved it for days on my DVR, and proclaimed YOU the person to beat in this year's season of American Idol.  I am writing to you today because I don't think you listen to my radio station and apparently you didn't hear me.

Why Can’t I Be A Slimeball?

I am choking!  For real!  Entertainment Weekly just reported that the cast of Jersey Shore will make $100,000 per episode in Season 4 of the hit MTV show!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  And, yes, I meant to include that many exclamation marks!  Why?  Because I am in SHOCK (like I would be if Moon didn't throw back 3 glasses of scotch tonight)!  And, given the fact that there about a dozen episodes in each season, that means we are making Snooki, The Situation, Pauly D, and those other lunatics MILLIONAIRES!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Yes!  Cue more exclamation marks, because I now realize that my parents just didn't raise me right!

American Idol: Results Shocker!!

Not kidding!  I just ran from the sofa in my living room to the chair at my computer desk.  I MUST BLOG NOW!!  I have been overtaken by a blog frenzy!  I am FURIOUS with the latest result on American Idol and feel compelled to share my thoughts about this show and what MUST BE done to repair its credibility.  Yes, American Idol has given us some terrific talent.  Kelly Clarkson completely deserved to win Season One.  She was, by far, the most talented vocalist from the premiere season.  Carrie Underwood completely deserved to win Season Four.  Her success is indisputable.  But I have said this before . . . if Kelly competed today, if Carrie competed today . . . neither would stand a chance of winning.  And here's why . . .

American Idol: A Little ROCK, A Little ROLL!

Last night, the Top 9 contestants on American Idol tore into the songbook of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and, again, for the most part, delivered ROCKING performances.  In fact, Moon and I were chatting this morning about the fact that this season of American Idol is very much like this season of Dancing With The Stars!  The contenders are so evenly matched it's hard to pick a winner.  And, after last night's show, it's hard to predict who's going on home.  But our resident Idol expert, Steve Thompson, hits it with his best shot!

Winning UGLY!

Has March ever been THIS maddening?  Monday's National Championship game had all the makings of a classic.  On one side, you had the U Conn Huskies, who rebounded from a rather average 9-9 record in the Big East conference to storm through the conference tournament and the NCAA tournament.  On the other, the Butler Bulldogs, who had battled into the title game for the 2nd consecutive year (a feat unheard of for a mid-major)!  Yes, it was the Huskies vs the Bulldogs for the National Crown and, boy, the game was a DOG!

Celebrity Apprentice Is “RICH!”

Chad here and Benefield is ready to breakdown this season of Celebrity Apprentice!  Now, you guys know that I have never been a fan of John Rich.  If you have ever tuned into The WBKR Waking Crew and caught one of my John Rich rants, you know that I refer to him as the Travelocity Gnome and give him grief for wearing full-length fur coats!  In fact, I remember cringing when I heard he was joining the latest cast of Celebrity Apprentice.  But you know what?  John Rich is THE MAN and I am eating a plate full of crow!

American Idol Takes On Sir Elton John!

Last night, our remaining 11 contestants on American Idol took on the songbook of Sir Elton John, and, for me, it was the first time this season that contestants really showed what they're made of.  From top to bottom, the show was one of the strongest episodes of Idol in years.  So, who was the cream of the crop, the top of the heap?  And who's going to say "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road!"   We look to our Idol expert Steve Thompson to make his predictions . . .

Alternative TV

Mid-season TV can tricky.  Either you can take a chance on a brand new show that you'll probably never see again, unless you watch it every single week, then the network may save it and make sure a full season runs starting in the fall

Did Anyone Else Think That Was Fake?

Yesterday afternoon, American Idol producer Nigel Lythgoe "tweeted" that there was going to be a shocker on Thursday's results show!  I immediately thought to myself, because he was so mediocre the night before and performed first, that Casey was doomed.  I could tell by Nigel's "tweet" tone that he thought the result was going to floor the audience.  But I guess he forgot that THE AUDIENCE voted Casey off!  But Nigel and the judges weren't having it . . .

My Bloody Brackets!

In my 13 years here at WBKR, I have acquired quite a reputation for doing very well in the NCAA Tournament pool.  I have won the jackpot a couple of times and am almost always a force in the final weekend of action.  But, as the old saying goes, all good things must come to an end . . . and my run most certainly has!

Handicapping the Dancing Stars!

Season 12 of Dancing With The Stars debuts tonight and the pressing question is "Will anyone watch?"  The producers of Dancing have taken a lot of heat for this season's cast.  In fact, many faithful fans have suggested that there really aren't "stars" in this year's batch of hopefuls!  All that said, I'm still going to watch (because it's a potential TRAIN WRECK) and your resident TV hound is ready to handicap the field.
