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.

Pia Gets Record Deal!

I'm still stunned after Pia from American Idol got voted off last week, but like the saying goes "things happen for a reason" and now Pia is in the studio recording an album with a record deal!  That is great news, with a voice like that I knew it was going to happen

On This Day: April 8th

As American Idol fans continue to lift their collective jaw off the floor, let's take a look at April 8th. On this day in 1740, three British ships capture the Spanish vessel, Princesa. It was called the War of Jenkin's Ear. And boy, was Jenkin's Nose jealous!  In 1820, the Venus de Milo was discovered on the Aegean island of Melos. Everyone was up in arms. And 8 years ago today, the #1 song was...

Aldean & Clarkson on Idol!

After watching a disapointing American Idol last night, and watching my favorite Idol Pia get voted off - I'm still trying to figure out why one of the best if not the best Idol was voted off?  Anyway something on American Idol to look forward to is coming April 14th, when season 1 winner Kelly Clarkson will join Jason Aldean on the stage to perform  their hit song "Don't You Wanna Stay"

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!

Another Two Bite The Dust!

After last week's shocking vote on American Idol, the stage was set!  We knew, headed into Elton John week, that two contestants were going home this week thanks to the fact that the judges used their lone "save" for the season on Casey!  So which two contestants bit the proverbial dust?  Which two potential American Idols were sent packing by the public?  And what does our Idol expert Steve Thompson think about it all?

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 . . .

Oh Man, What a Thursday!

Thursday night television hasn't been this relevant since NBC's white hot line-up ruled the ratings a decade ago. And while many were watching the big shocker on American Idol, I was watching the big shocker unfolding in an Anaheim arena.
