If American Idol had aired a 16th season, we’d be a few weeks into the finals right now with a little less than a dozen contestants left vying for that title. In a good season, we’d have more than a couple viable contenders left, so lets talk now about a few of those who made […]

Kara walks into the alien bar. No, this isn’t the start of a bad joke. Kara’s there to talk to Mon-El. It seems she wants to both shut down their budding relationship by telling him that she doesn’t think they’re a good match and that she wouldn’t date someone like him.

There’s a constant buzz of anxiety in my head and an awareness that, very soon, everything will be different for me and, in a way, that’s what Idol‘s farewell season is like.

American Idol XV: Top 5 Performances

During Wednesday night’s show, we were reminded several times that American Idol‘s final season was rapidly coming to a close.

American Idol XV: Top 6 Performances

To say I was dreading Idol‘s “Most Performed Songs” night would be a gross understatement. I had no desire to hear someone crash and burn on Phil Collins’ “Against All Odds” for the 7th time during the show’s run. But if there’s one thing I’ve learned on Idol, it’s that we have about as much […]
