American Idol Recap: The Top 24

This week the *real* American Idol kicked off...the American Idol that's about singing. Although I did find this season's audition period less painful than usual...with more focus on the good than the bad...I still am most happy when we settle in and can talk song choice, "whole packages" and pitchiness. I confess to being a little confused, because I thought they had said they wouldn't be doing a Boys vs. Girls thing where an equal number of each would get into the Finals, and I'm disappointed if that's not the case....more

American Idol Guys: Who Will Be The First To Leave?

    First I’d like to say the judges did it! I love this combo of Steven, Jennifer and Randy. It is so good to have people making the calls that know what music is all about. How refreshing it is to have all the judges getting along although they may not agree on everything....more

Simon Says?

I can’t believe I’m actually writing for the 2nd time in a week about Simon Cowell and his shows. I’m not a Simon follower, I swear.

American Idol Season 10: What's the Verdict on the New Idol?

Reports of American Idol's demise in Season 10 may be a bit premature. Yes, it's going through a major transformation. Only Randy Jackson remains from any previous season's judging panel. He's joined by two wild cards: Jennifer Lopez -- struggling to stay relevant in a world of Lady Gagas, Ke$has and Taylor Swifts -- and Steven Tyler, who has possibly not been relevant for longer than J-Lo....more

What a great review! I could really learn some things from you.
As far as Idol I didn't really ...more
