In the first major upset all season long, “American Idol” finally had a surprise elimination ahead of next week’s finale. Angie Miller, who soared to “Idol” fame with an impassioned performance of her original song, “You Set Me Free” during Hollywood Week, was sent home Thursday.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — “American Idol” finalist Angie Miller won’t be tickling the ivories on this season’s final showdown. The piano-playing 19-year-old singer from Beverly, Mass., was revealed Thursday to have received the fewest viewer votes on the Fox talent contest, leaving 23-year-old R&B vocalist Candice Glover of St. Helena Island, S.C., and 22-year-old country […]
Randy Jackson out. The original “American Idol” judge says he won’t be returning to the Fox talent competition.
A major shake-up is rattling “American Idol,” which, once again, is expected to look very different next season.
The Top 3 returned to their hometowns on “American Idol,” and everyone was crying and feeling things. The contestants, Nicki Minaj, and me, we were all waterworks tonight. All that emotion brought out some of the best performances yet for two contestants. But there was only one clear winner: Candice Glover.

Only three girls remain in the game on “American Idol,” but which one will sally forth into a future of unguaranteed musical success? (See: Taylor Hicks, for one.)

Though we avoided an elimination last week, tonight, it had to happen. We said goodbye to the one “American Idol” contestant who has been dancing with last place for what feels like months now: Amber Holcomb. Repeatedly scorned for wearing dark lipstick and having an amazing voice but just being an unlikable human, Amber constantly […]
Second time is not a charm on “American Idol.” For tonight’s Top 4 redux, the very fibers that hold the show together seemed to be fraying. Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey bickered, the guest mentor usurped the judges’ power, and finally, someone actually called out the ridiculous over-the-top interpretations of lyrics these girls don’t understand. […]
There were no results on “American Idol’s” results show, rendering an entire hour of our lives essentially wasted, in a “surprise” move that could have been predicted with nothing but a calendar and simple math. Since the judges cruelly withheld the save last week from Janelle Arthur, even when it was their last chance to […]
