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!

American Idol: Featuring Songs That Will Make You Wish You Were Never Born

First things first. Should you ever go on a reality competition series and you have several warrants out
for your arrest, you might want to think seriously about telling folks that  you might be found out by either the law or someone involved in a case  against you. The only thing I can think of any more nonsensical would be to claim a lottery prize when you're in the Witness Protection Program. I
