A “Young Miranda Lambert” Auditions for “American Idol” [Video]

Thursday night, American Idol auditions rolled into Texas, the state that gave us our first Idol champ, Kelly ClarksonIdol has always had good luck in the Lone Star State, so producers figured they could wrangle up some more talent there this year.  And, last night, they snagged a rifle-packin', 4-wheeler-ridin' gal who reminded me very much of Miranda Lambert.  And they found Ramiro Garcia, a medical miracle who defies every odd imaginable to be able to lift his voice up in song.  As usual, our Idol expert, Steve Thompson, shared his thoughts about the episode and the contenders.

“American Idol” Hits Aspen and WBKR’s “Idol” Expert Chimes In [Video]

WBKR's American Idol expert, Steve Thompson, was hoping for a "Rocky Mountain high" last night as Idol auditions rolled into Aspen.  And, while we had the usual assortment of freaks and non-contenders, we did have some folks ready to step up to the plate and knock the socks off Steven Tyler, J. Lo and Randy Jackson.   In fact, several of them sang country!  We had everyone from a gal who butchered "Jolene," a bipolar girl who just may win the whole thing with her Carrie Underwood-like chops, a Lady Gaga wannabe and a guy who calls himself "The Magic Cyclops!"   So, did the contestants deliver?

Kelly Clarkson Covers Carrie Underwood [Video]

There's nothing wrong with a little friendly rivalry, right?  Now, I am not suggesting that there's any real type of competition between American Idol Season One winner Kelly Clarkson and Season 4 winner Carrie Underwood, but since the two are the show's most successful winners and are constantly in a tug-of-war in the Idol sales figures, one would assume that human nature occasionally gets the best of them.  After all, they constantly seem to be in the other's territory.

THE X-FACTOR: Chad’s 5 Singers To Watch! [Video]

Forget what you've heard about the disappointing ratings.  Forget what you've heard about the decline of Simon Cowell's popularity!  As they say in England, it's all rubbish.  The X-Factor debuted on FOX a couple of weeks ago and is doing what talent shows on television are SUPPOSED to do!  (Sorry The Sing Off!  All your groups sound exactly alike to me!)  The show is finding talent and AMAZING talent at that.  The preliminary auditions are in the books and the remaining contestants are ready to suit up for boot camp.  All have the same goal in sight.  They want to battle their way to the LIVE shows, where YOU can vote for your favorites!  And, after watching the first few episodes, I am ready to share with you some of my personal favorites.  Keep an eye on these folks.  They truly have The X-Factor!
