X Factor, Sept. 11 – Easiest Yes Simon Has Ever Given

It’s season three of X Factor, and the only judge that remains the same throughout all seasons is Simon Cowell. He kept gal pal Demi Lovato from last season, but ditched L.A. Reid and Britney Spears, bringing in Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio, making him the only man on the panel, which I’m sure he enjoys. Simon definitely knows talent, and I think that extends to the judging panel as well as the stage. Auditioner: Carlito Olivero, 23, from L.A., but originally from Chicago, a [...]

American Idol, Feb. 21 & 28 – The Top 20 Guys Become the Top 10

Here are the top 20 guys and who the judges, with a little help from Jimmy Iovine, decided to send on to the semifinals.Paul Jolley, Palmersville, Tennessee, works in retail and sales and admits his town is itty bitty with only about 150 people. If you blink, you'll miss it. His grandfather recently passed away, and it was very hard on him. He's worked hard and feels like he has to share this with the world, because he has so much to give back. Tonight, [...]

American Idol, Feb. 20 & 27 – The Top 20 Girls Become the Top 10

There is a lot of female talent on American Idol this year. They seemed to have so much that they created a new plan to decide it differently this year. They let us see them making all the choices instead of just letting us see them telling people, “Thanks, but no thanks.” Here’s twenty good performances, with a few that were definite standouts. Jenny Beth Willis, 17, is from Owensboro, KY, the bluegrass state. She performs at churches and festivals. She calls it insane to [...]

American Idol 12, Jan. 24 – Singing Firemen and Doctors

Now that we’ve finally seen what the whole big fight was all about between the judges, which after the fact turned out to be not very much, we can finally get past all that and stop waiting for it. We can get back to what we’re really here for … some great auditions (and some not-so-goood ones probably as well). Tonight the auditions are coming from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Mariah Carey refers to herself as a beauty school dropout and applies Randy Jackson’s makeup for [...]

American Idol 12, Jan. 23 – The Big Fight That Wasn’t

With the first four hours of auditions last week, we definitely saw a few contenders as well as a couple of people who stole our hearts. Note that the new judges weren't anywhere near stealing anyone's hearts. Possibly Keith Urban, but definitely not Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj. Tonight the auditions are coming out of Charlotte, North Carolina. We get shades of what is to come in an argument between Mariah and Nicki, and are then told that we're flashing back six hours earlier. Scotty [...]

American Idol 12, Jan. 17 – Breaking My Heart in a Whole New Way

I have to admit I wasn't as annoyed with Nicki Minaj last night as I thought I'd be. I was annoyed with the whole catfight thing with Mariah Carey. Are those two divas going to do that the whole season? We no longer have the fake fights between Simon and Paula, but now we have to have this instead? Did the producers set that up on purpose as it almost seemed like some of the catfights were a little staged. Yet it's not them breaking [...]

American Idol 12, Jan. 16 – Hooking Me Again

This is the first time since season one that I am not looking very forward to American Idol. I had no idea what the show was going to be like in season one, and my kids begged me to turn it on. After hearing Kelly Clarkson's voice one time, I was hooked. And now this year, I know what to expect, and it's not Nicki Minaj. Oh, why couldn't they have left Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez in the judging seats? This can't be right. [...]

American Idol, May 23 – A Winner, a Proposal, and a Legend

I’ve been through all eleven seasons of American Idol and it’s no less thrilling tonight, waiting to see whether Phillip Phillips or Jessica Sanchez won than it was watching to see if Kelly Clarkson or Justin Guarini won. Well, okay. It’s not quite the same. And there have been some seasons where I cared a little less about the outcome, but it’s still no less thrilling. It starts out with a performance by the final 12, all dressed in white singing Run Away Baby. It’s [...]

American Idol, May 22 – Perfection or Uniqueness?

There’s an extra element of stress on tonight’s American Idol performance finale. Not only is it down to the final two contestants, but Phillip Phillips is having a serious medical condition. He’s been due for kidney surgery since around the time the finals started, but he refused to leave the show and has just been dealing with the illness as best as he can. He’s been missing from photo shoots and Ford videos while he rests up. It’s a foregone conclusion that after tomorrow night, [...]

American Idol, May 16 – Outlook for the Final 2

What strikes me the most looking at the final two for season 11 of American Idol is the resemblance to season 5. The male R&B artist is sent home in third place, leaving the young female pop star, who has appeared in the bottom group of vote-getters before, and the male rocker with a unique sound who has never appeared in the bottom two, as the final two standing. We know how that season ended up. That’s right. Season 5 that crowned Taylor Hicks as [...]
