"American Idol" is cutting to five finalists tonight; they're playing the game where they have contestsants go into three different groups on stage -- Angie Miller, Lazaro Arbos and Kree Harrison are asked to start each group. 

Scotty McCreery then returns with "Gotta See You Tonight." He's so smooth and at home up there; a bit hokey at times, but fun to listen to....

Will Lazaro Arbos, Janelle Arthur or Angie Miller face 'Idol' elimination?

It was the best of performances (Candice Glover), it was the worst of performances (Lazaro Arbos) on last night’s “American Idol.” And it was also the most mediocre of performances (Janelle Arthur). So it’s no surprise that our “Idol” psychics expect either Arbos or Arthur to be sent home on tonight’s results show.

Four of our eight psychics believe Arbos, this season’s Latin-flavored version...

“American Idol” front-runner Candice Glover does not have a wide range when it comes to fashion. But it doesn’t matter -- her vocal range is off the charts. On Wednesday night, the much-praised contestant wore mostly black -- once a soft cowled black shirt topped by an off-white snakeskin, studded leather jacket and snakeskin black leggings -- and for her second performance, a simple black, short-sleeved...

Candice Glover capped off one of the best nights ever on "American Idol" with a powerful, unexpected performance of The Cure's "Lovesong" that overshadowed Amber Holcomb's and Kree Harrison's fresh and surprising takes on songs written nearly a half-century ago.

The six remaining finalists had to sing a song by Burt Bacharach first, before getting to perform any song they...

Kree Harrison gives her best performance, Lazaro Arbos his worst on 'American Idol'

Lazaro Arbos next on "American Idol," singing "Close to You." It's not good; he's swallowing his words, the song itself is melodramatic and almost impossible to sing without parodying. Low energy, nothing at all distinctive about it. Tepid applause at the end.

"All I can say is 'no, no, no, no'" says Randy Jackson -- "dude, that was horrible." He goes...

Lazaro Arbos redeems himself, Janelle Arthur butchers Billy Joel song on 'American Idol'

Janelle Arthur up next as "American Idol" rocks out -- singing Billy Joel's "You May Be Right." She slows it down; I don't like it from the get-go, strips it of the raw, frenetic energy that's at the heart of the song. Almost whiny; nothing memorable about her performance.

Keith Urban praises her spangly, paisley, rhinestone boots; never a good sign when the first words...

"American Idol's" Devin Velez, Burnell Taylor, Lazaro Arbos seem bound for the bottom 3

From the Four Tops to the bottom 3 will likely be the fate for Lazaro Arbos, Burnell Taylor and Devin Velez on tonight’s “American Idol” results show if our “Idol” psychics are correct.

The trio’s disastrous performance of the Tops’ “Can’t Help Myself” on last night’s Motown/Detroit-themed episode pleased no one, especially judge Nicki Minaj who wasn’t calling any of them “Sugar pie, honeybunch.”

“I...

'American Idol' fashion: Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey are twins, kind of

The two American Idol divas, Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey, have verrrrry different styles, so it was odd to see them both wearing short dresses in the exact same shade of orangey-red on Wednesday night’s show.

Minaj donned a molded-to-her-body, short- sleeved sheath accessorized with a diamond tennis necklace. Carey went for a 50s style frock — a sleeveless shirtwaist with plunging neckline...
