American Idol: And Then There Were Seven

Goodbye, DeAndre.  Last night, on the American Idol results show, DeAndre Brackensick was shown the door, despite Jennifer Lopez's campaign to save him.  See, the judges have that one-time save to use anytime before Idol narrows its field to five.  And Jennifer has been a long-time and rather vocal supporter for DeAndre.  And, after he sang for his life last night, Jennifer voted to keep him, but Randy and Steven disagreed.  With that said, the Idol field is down to seven.  Our Idol expert Steve Thompson handicaps the remaining field and tells us what to expect next!

Chad’s Top Ten “American Idol” Performances [Video]

I may have mentioned this on the air before and I realize it may make me a total couch potato, but I love American Idol.  In fact, I think I have seen every single episode of every single season.  Because of that, I have been along for the entire bumpy ride.  I have heard every single sour note sung, but I have also been there to witness the incredible performances that make the show what it was originally designed to be . . . a way to uncover untapped talent and find, from the depths of oscurity, America's next great singing superstars.  I decided, since we are well into Season 11 of Idol, to comb back through my memory bank and present to you . . . the Top Ten American Idol Performances of All-Time!

Shannon Magrane Strikes Out on American Idol

American Idol: Would You Like to Take the Grand Tour? by Steve Thompson
Just when you thought it was safe to watch American Idol again... The dreaded Judge's Save can be invoked any night before the final five. What does this mean to America? Because of the timely exit of Jermaine, the producers just happen to now have a spare week with which to manipulate the audience. When someone totally botches a theme (and they will) and it's one person the judges want to win-- the Save returns and perhaps even the Nielsen viewers.

IDOL Hopeful Slays Carrie Underwood Song [Video]

There's been a lot of talk this season about American Idol and how the show isn't the ratings juggernaut it used to be.  However, as a fan who has truly never missed an episode, I feel I must tell you that this year's Top 13 is the strongest in years.  And, last Thursday's "Wild Card" episode was absolutely riveting television.  The judges chose six contestants to "sing for their lives" and each one laid it all on the line.  My absolute favorite was Jeremy Rosado, who walked to the microphone and blasted his way through Carrie Underwood's "I Know You Won't."  WATCH THIS!
