American Idol and The “King”

Last night on American Idol, our remaining 6 contestants took on the songbook of Carole King.  If you tuned into the WBKR Waking Crew this morning, you know that her music has divided Moon and Chad!  Moon's a fan of Carole's voice and her songwriting.  Chad doesn't think Carole is much of a singer and, consequently, wrote songs that didn't require much "singing!"  So, which Idol hopeful manage to choose the RIGHT song?  Who was the KING of the last night's show?  We turn to our Idol expert, Steve Thompson.

And Then There Were Six . . .

Elimination night Thursday on American Idol and we finally said goodbye to Stefano, who'd been lingering in the bottom three for weeks.  This time, though, he couldn't escape America's vote and now we are down to the FINAL SIX!  So, what does Steve Thompson, our Idol expert, think about all this?  And what's in store for our Idol hopefuls (and us!) next week?

James Durbin “Rocks” The Country

"Songs from the 21st Century" last night on American Idol. It was definitely a mixed bag . . . with Scotty McCreery singing 'Swingin'" by Lee Ann Rimes (Uh, what?), my favorite little underachiever Lauren Alaina taking on Sara Evans' "Born To Fly" (Uh, why?) and James rocking out to "Uprising" by Muse (Uh, awesome!!).  What did our Idol expert Steve Thompson think about the show, how did he rate the performances, and who does he think is hitting the road, Jack?

Hines “Wards” Off The Competition!

Are you watching this season of Dancing With The Stars?  It's arguably the closest season we've ever had on the show.  (Look at me!  I said "closest season WE'VE ever had!"  Like I'm Tom Bergeron or Brooke Burke or something!)  But the latest batch of Disco Ball-hopefuls is truly running neck and neck.  Each week, the scores are SO CLOSE and it's been really hard to name a frontrunner!  But, I think we have one emerging . . .

Amazing GRACE!

Gary and Mallory Ervin are hanging on by the hair of their chinny-chin-chins!  Oops!  Sorry, Mallory!  I forgot.  You're a former Miss Kentucky and I am certain you don't have hair on your chin!  (And, if you do, get some tweezers!  Quick!)  The father-daughter duo from Morganfield, Kentucky was pulling up the rear in last night's epidose of The Amazing Race!   So, what happened?

Have You All Seen These?

I am on the go a lot, so I rarely get the chance to go shopping.  And, I'll be honest, it's not my favorite thing to do anyway (because I can NEVER make up my mind and I get bored VERY quickly!)  I am the poster child for Attenion Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and I'm just not built for accomplishing one task at a time.  But Friday, I decided to tempt fate and go shopping for a new laptop computer.  And, like always, I got REALLY bored REALLY fast and quickly wandered out of the laptop aisle!  I think about 6 different sales assistants asked me if they could help because I was bopping in and out of about 12 different aisles of the store.  Then I found this . . .

Peter, Mary . . . You’ve Lost Paul!

After weeks of saying goodbye to the ladies, American Idol, for the first time since we named the Top 13,  said ADIOS to one of the guys!  Nashville rocker Paul McDonald got the boot last night and his other friends in the bottom three, Hayley and Stefano, were sent back to safety!  What does our Idol expert think about it all?  Let's ask him . . .

American Idol Goes To The Movies

Well, yesterday I wrote "An Open Letter To Lauren Alaina" and encouraged her to start singing like she can WIN this competition.  And, last night, Lauren and the other members of Idol's Top 8 went to the movies and performed songs from the cinema.  So, how did they fare?  Who rocked it out and who's in danger of following in Pia's steps and hitting the house?  Our Idol expert Steve Thompson shares his thoughts . . .

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 . . .
