"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....Read more »
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...Read more »
“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...Read more »
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...Read more »
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...Read more »
The “American Idol” top 6 finalists, Lazaro Arbos, Janelle Arthur, Candice Glover, Kree Harrison, Amber Holcomb and Angie Miller, will perform two songs each on April 10, including the music of Burt Bacharach and Hal David and “a song I wish I had written.”
Kelly Clarkson, three-time Grammy Award-winning artist and season one winner, and Scotty McCreery, platinum-selling artist and season...Read more »
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...Read more »
The “American Idol” top 7 finalists – Lazaro Arbos, Janelle Arthur, Candice Glover, Kree Harrison, Amber Holcomb, Angie Miller and Burnell Taylor – will perform on a classic rock, no ballads-themed show April 3.
“American Idol” season 4 winner, six-time Grammy Award-winning artist Carrie Underwood will perform her new single, “See You Again,” and season 9 finalist Casey James will debut his...Read more »
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...Read more »
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...Read more »
