Another chapter has closed in the final book of the American Idol series. Or should I say the “farewell” book? During the Television Critic’s Association Press Tour last Friday, Seacrest, Lopez and Urban all corrected themselves after calling the show’s 15th season it’s “final” season. Whether that means the show will return down the road […]

American Idol XV: Auditions Continue

The second week of Idol auditions seemed to repeat the first, giving us plenty to think about after Thursday’s two-hour special, but leaving us a little high and dry after Wednesday’s one hour offering.

The doors to the 15th and final season of American Idol opened Wednesday night with a nostalgic note, delivering a montage of the moments where each of the previous winners claimed their title and leaving us wondering who would be “the bookend to Kelly Clarkson” that would come from this season.

American Idol XIV – Top 6: Arena Anthems

On Wednesday night’s Idol show the theme wasn’t the only thing misleading as a grand total of two of the performances seemed to actually fit within its confines. But worse yet was the distinct lack of viable feedback from the judges, save a few comments from JLo and the heavy-handedness with which the Quentin “this whole thing is whack” debacle was handled throughout.
