Idol Top 2 Performances: What’s Sweeter: Candi or Kreedom?

That question (and those nicknames) have haunted us all season. This was the finale I was rooting for and let me just say that if you haven’t seen the last 12 seasons of Idol, then I’m going to just lay it all out for you: tonight was the best finale we’ve ever had from a […]

Idol Top 3 Results: Finale Shocker

As I said last week, this is the Top 3 I wanted. I’d be happy if any one of them won in the end. That said, I don’t think I had clued in to the reality that, holy heck, one of them has to go home before the finale and, not only that, it could […]

Idol Top 3 Performances: It’s A Sad, Sad Situation

You’ll notice this is the first title to not contain a pun and it’s because I’m in a very somber mood. The reality is just setting in for me that I have to lose one of these girls tomorrow night and, also, I just realized that I actually do want one of them more than […]

Idol Top 4.2 Results: Suspense Four Nothing

Well thank God someone was actually eliminated because I’m seriously out of “four” puns for this season. That said, Thursday’s results show wasn’t without plenty of suspense as Ryan withheld any results until the very end of the telecast. I, personally, was on pins and needles because I had a very clear Top 3 that […]

Idol Top 4 – Part 2: This One’s Four The Girls

Well, I have to say that keeping these for girls around for another night of performances made for an interesting show. The content of the judging was slightly better than last week but their antics had me cringing all night. From Mariah and Nicki’s bickering to Randy’s pissing contest with guest mentor (and hopefully future […]

Idol Top 4 Results – Twist and Out

As I’ve said in previous articles, the results shows with the save/non-eliminations are always the most anti-climatic because you can generally see them coming from a mile away. Subtlety was never really a part of the Idol Machine’s vocabulary. Still, Thursday’s results show was far from unimportant. As the show chugs like an unstoppable steam […]

Idol Top 4 Performances – One-Hit or Wonder?

I didn’t know what to expect coming into this week. I had high expectations because this is, without a doubt, one of the most talented Top 4’s we’ve had in many seasons. What I didn’t expect was the frustrating telecast that we actually ended up getting. It seemed none of the judges were hearing what […]

Idol Top 5 Results – Five For Fighting

I’m going to pull a Quentin Tarantino and spoil the ending on this one: Once again, we went into Thursday’s result show expecting the judges to swoop in dramatically and use their save to keep our squad of five talented ladies vying for the title in tact, but once again, they declined to do so. […]

Idol Top 5 Performances: Binders Full of Women

Multiple times this evening the judges declared these five girls “the best top five ever”. First of all, only Randy is qualified to say that and even that’s questionable. But I’ve been here since day one, so I’ll be the judge of that. Our two themes tonight were “Songs From The Year You Were Born” […]

Idol Top 6 Results: Save On Standby

Going into Thursday, I think 90% of the Idolverse expected the judges to have to use their one and only save to maintain the status quo of the five talented ladies this season. It was clear, after Lazaro’s Top 3 placement the week before, that America just wasn’t buying into the “all-girl top five!” plot […]

Idol Top 6 Performances – Which Girl’s Getting The Save?

I figured I’d just cut to the chase and put it right in the title: we all know that this show is just leading up to the big save that’s going to be used come Thursday night when, inevitably, one of these five talented ladies (channeling my inner Tyra Banks here…) gets the boot over Lazaro. […]

Idol Top 7 Results – Two Out Of Three Ain’t Bad

Yes, the title of this recap is a Meatloaf song. An artist that likely could have been  part of this past week’s theme but wasn’t for a variety of reasons, one of which is Nigel’s reluctance to clear songs that haven’t been sung to death on the show for anyone but his Chosen Few. Alas, let’s […]
