Paul Jolley and Devin Velez, as expected, are in the bottom three as "American Idol" cuts to eight finalists -- one more spot left to fill.
Lazaro Arbos is already safe; he was definitely the worst singer this round, by far; but he has a huge fan base and a compelling story, having overcome a chronic stutter.
Kree Harrison is revealed to be safe as well -- as is Candice Glover....Read more »
"American Idol" is cutting to its top eight tonight; up first is Amber Holcomb -- they have her sit right down without telling her anything, it's silly.
Guys then do a horrid version of The Beatles' "Got to Get You Into My Life" -- choreography is cheesy and old-fashioned, voices are drowned out by the instruments.
A delighted Paul Jolley is then informed his...Read more »
It could be a hard day’s night for Paul Jolley, Lazaro Arbos or Devin Velez on "American Idol" tonight. Each received at least two votes from our eight "Idol" psychics to be eliminated on tonight's results show.
Though Kree Harrison sang "With a Little Help From My Friends" on last night's Beatles-themed show, Paul Jolley seems the most likely to...Read more »
“I like the hair,” Keith Urban told “American Idol” contestant Angie Miller who had straightened her haystack mound of curls for Wednesday night’s homage to the Beatles. OK, a nice compliment, but Ryan Seacrest took it to another level when he said, “You’ve got a new friend . . . the flatiron.” Jeez, gents, there are things we ladies would rather not discuss on national TV, included in the mix:...Read more »
Candice Glover singing "Come Together" on "American Idol," mentor Jimmy Iovine tells her during rehearsal, "this show is lucky to have you." Comes out with some attitude, playing with the words and throwing some emotion in there. Just nails the chorus; big and powerful and biting.
Keith Urban loves the "rock chick" side of her, Nicki Minaj loves...Read more »
Apparently it was leather weather for some of the girls on "American Idol" on Wednesday night and they looked swell. Stunning and strutting it best was the gorgeous Amber Holcomb who was having a fashion “Moment like This,” in a cool, black leather moto vest over a billowing animal print maxi dress, belted and worn with graphic cylindrical earrings. Angie Miller rocked a short, form-fitting...Read more »
"American Idol" kicked off its finals with the women dominating, as Candice Glover, Angela Miller, Kree Harrison and Amber Holcomb topped the field -- with Burnell Taylor the only guy making any sort of impression.
Nobody was amazing, although Glover's version of "I (Who Have Nothing)" drew raves from the judges and the audience, as did Holcomb's "A Moment Like...Read more »
Paul Jolley up next on "American Idol," seems like a nice guy but he doesn't deserve to be here in my view; mentor Jimmy Iovine tells him he "perpetually oversings."
Is singing Scotty McCreery's version of "Amazed." Just sitting on the steps; a bit theatrical right away but it's a good song choice that fits his voice. Cheesy as heck, of course, because that's...Read more »
The theme for Wednesday is Music of the American Idols and includes songs that the past winners -- Kelly Clarkson, Ruben Studdard, Fantasia Barrino, Carrie Underwood, Taylor Hicks, Jordin Sparks, David Cook, Kris Allen, Lee DeWyze, Scotty McCreery and Phillip Phillips -- covered on the show and their post-Idol music.
The first number for contenders -- Lazaro Arbos, Janelle Arthur, Curtis...Read more »
Elijah Liu and Curtis Finch topped a mediocore guys' night on "American Idol," as most of the ten contestants took turns reminding us how they don't stand a chance against a stellar women's group this season.
All anyone's going to be talking about though is Charlie Askew's emotional meltdown -- he gave an odd, angry performance of Genesis' "Mama," during which he hurled...Read more »
