Lee DeWyze put on a free show at Reed Arena last night as part of “The Big Event,” and I got to meet up with him backstage before he went on! [But I didn't get to have one-on-one time until dozens of teenage girls stampeded into the arena to get as close as they [...]
America voted Casey Abrams off “American Idol” last week, but the judges decided to use their “save” to keep him around. We all watched as Casey nearly collapsed on-stage when the judges stopped him mid-performance to tell him they were giving him another chance. But according to TMZ, Casey did collapse backstage after the show. Sources say [...]
The Top 11 sang the hits of Motown last night on the show. So, how could it go wrong? For the most part it didn’t. This was a really great episode of American Idol. This was an important week to shine considering whoever goes home on Thursday does not get to participate in the summer [...]
The judges chose not to use their one and only Save of the season on Karen Rodriguez last night. Karen received the fewest votes for her sadly forgettable rendition of Taylor Dane’s “Love Will Lead You Back.” Apparently, the judges’ decision was NOT unanimous. I assume JLo was the judge wanting to save Karen, as [...]
It was kind of a strange night on Idol. The song choices were odd, but many of the contestants continued to show us they are there because they can REALLY sing!

Karen Rodriguez and Ashthon Jones delivered sub-par performances and it landed them in the bottom three, along with Haley Reinhart. Ryan revealed that it was indeed Ashton who got the fewest votes. She “sang for her life”, but the [...]
Alli recaps the Top 13 from last night.
The contestants are not the only thing that’s better about this season of American Idol than last. The living arrangements are to die for. The Top 13 are getting a glimpse of the glamourous life when they moved into a Beverly Hills mansion that’s worth an estimated $12 million. It’s costing the show $100,000 a month to [...]
There were a ton of great performances from the Top 13 contestants. The judges gave each other props for picking an awesome crop this year, and I have to agree! I’m having trouble picking a favorite at this point. Last night was “Idol Night” and the contestants chose songs made famous by one of their [...]
Unfortunately Tim Halperin didn’t make it into the top 13 of American Idol last week, but apparently he’s not too upset about it. As I’d hope he would, he was ready to give me the first interview post-Idol this morning! Because American Idol has always been one of my favorite shows, I obviously had a [...]
