It’s Judgement Day Part 2, and there are still 10 spots to fill in the Top 24, and only one hour to fill them. The cliffhanger that left us with a babbling, tearful Adam Brock last night gets wrapped up in due time, and, no surprises here, he made it to semifinal, thus inducting him […]
Tonight’s so-called “Final Judgment” – oh wait, don’t forget the “Part 1” — played out on a Vegas Cirque du Soleil stage, surrounded by rushing water, and sometimes bubbling lava, a giant Audrey 2-style flower, large glowing bug cocoons and other oddities. The purpose of this week’s four, yes, four hours of “American Idol” is […]
Vegas. Land of Elvis, clichéd language, and too many “American Idol” contestants. It’s like another Hollywood week, only four hours east and in costume. Again, everyone must choose a group to work with, but this time producers avoid meltdown footage and instead focus on vocal coaching. Most performances are far better than the last group […]
Last Thursday we got a whole lot of drama and zero singing, so this week, to make it up to us, “Idol” gave us what felt like two episodes in one — the group performances followed by final solos and elimination.
Welcome back to Hollywood, where Symone Black is alive and well and suffers the affliction of dehydration — and crazy stage dad. Black fell off the stage last night after a stellar solo turn and wound up in the hospital.
It’s the last audition of the night. Symone Black phenomenally sings “(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay.” But suddenly her eyelids get droopy. She wobbles strangely, one, two , three times, until she pitches forward and falls right into the pit. Someone calls for a medic. Her dad rushes down from the balcony. […]
When “American Idol” closed out its audition shows last week with an episode in Pittsburgh, we were left wondering: what happened to New Jersey?
As “American Idol” auditions wrapped up last Thursday in St. Louis, more people were watching CBS’s “The Big Bang Theory.” For the third-straight week, in fact, the sitcom beat “Idol” in the coveted 18 to 49 demo, squashing the show that had long been indestructible, ratings-wise.
“American Idol’s” season 11 auditions wrapped up tonight in St. Louis, and the last batch of contestants who were vying for a chance at Hollywood were as bland as a Midwestern casserole. The highlight of the city is, apparently, a curmudgeonly taxi driver who got a lot of airplay. Even Steven Tyler was short on […]
“American Idol” is hitting Portland, or is it the other way around? A slew of dismal contestants in the City of Roses forced the judges to continue their streak of dishonesty this season with buffered rejections to the singers that offered hope that they could actually get better. “Not yet,” and “You’re not ready” are […]
