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.

Did Anyone Else Think That Was Fake?

Yesterday afternoon, American Idol producer Nigel Lythgoe "tweeted" that there was going to be a shocker on Thursday's results show!  I immediately thought to myself, because he was so mediocre the night before and performed first, that Casey was doomed.  I could tell by Nigel's "tweet" tone that he thought the result was going to floor the audience.  But I guess he forgot that THE AUDIENCE voted Casey off!  But Nigel and the judges weren't having it . . .

Motown Philly Back Again!

Last night on American Idol, your Top 11 contestants tackled the music of Motown and viewers, while skeptical going in, were treated to a show jam-packed full of good performances.  Usually on this show, there's a pretty definite line between "safe" and "see ya!"  But not last night.  It's as if all the contestants realized that good performances Wednesday could make them a lot of money on your this summer!  After all, it's Idol's Top 10 who hit the road!

The Good, The Bad, The Ugly!

The Top 12 American Idol contestants took the stage last night to perform songs from the years in which they were born.  And the result:  good, bad, and just downright ugly!  Moon and I were chatting this morning with Steve Thompson, our American Idol expert, and we all agreed that last night's episode, if it did anything, separated the contenders from the wannabes!

The one constant about Idol is that an hour long results show nearly always seems two hours long...
