American Idol – 3 Remain
What a 10th season on American Idol! It's surely had it's share of up and downs and shocking eliminations, one of the contestants that I was sure to be in the top 3 Pia Toscano was voted off well before her time and this past week James Durbin another person who I thought would be in the f…
American Idol Shocker!!

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 rockin…
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…
