Idol: Candice Glover and Kree Harrison Win the Night on American Idol [Video]

Though ratings for American Idol continue to drop, the talent on the show continues to carry the weight of the series and rise above it.  And, last night, Candice Glover gave one of the best performances in the history of the show and reminded viewers how good Idol CAN be when it does what it's supposed to . . . turn everyday singers into international superstars. As Steve Thompson explains, Candice's performance was one for the Idol history books!

How Do You Watch TV?

While watching TV this week, I noticed a lot of commercials saying something like “if you missed your favorite show you can watch it tomorrow on a tablet, smart phone or other device.” I didn’t pay much attention to them at first, but as the week went on I started to see more of these commercials (or at least it seemed like I did)

Louisville’s Kevin Ware Appears on The Late Show with David Letterman [VIDEO]

When Kevin Ware saw that his broken tibia was sticking six inches out of his leg, he screamed and went into shock. Then he repeatedly implored his team to beat Duke. More than likely, his surprisingly acute presence of mind didn't include foreseeing an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman BECAUSE of that leg.

American Idol: Kelly Clarkson vs. Kree Harrison [Video]

Seven contestants remain on American Idol and odds are looking more and more like this is most definitely a girl's year to win.  Of the seven contestants remaining, five of them are female and just two are male.  And, let's be honest, Idol has had far more success with its female winners than it has its male champs anyway.  Is any Idol out there putting up the sales numbers and topping the charts like Carrie Underwood and Kelly Clarkson.  The answer is a resounding, "No!"  And, last Wednesday, during Motown Week, I was reminded of just how different Idol is these days.  It seems the true standouts, the true phenoms, have already been on the show and won it.  And it was never more apparent than when Kree Harrison, one of this year's frontrunners, took on Aretha Franklin's "Don't Play That Song."  It was the same song Kelly Clarkson sang in the same theme week way back in Season One.  And, if you ask me, there is just no comparison.  WATCH!
