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.

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?

Saying Yes to Nashville

We've seen many an American Idol alumni pack their bags for Nashville:  winner Carrie Underwood, Danny Gokey, Phil Stacey, Kellie Pickler; and there's no doubt in my mind, both season 10 hopefuls, Lauren Alaina and Scotty McCreery,  should have no worries in pursuing their country careers.  Howev

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.
