Watch him travel through his piano in the video for “The Last Song!”
Tim Halperin posted this video of Scotty from before they found out their Top 40 fate. As soon as I saw this, it sealed the deal for me. I want Scotty to win.
He’s so humble, down to Earth, and hilarious! Plus- HELLA talented. I think the only thing that sucks is we probably won’t ever play his music on Candy. Hmph.
PS- who do YOU want to win?!
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 million questions to ask about his experience and the people we’ve grown to love and hate. I got those out of the way in time to hear about his time there and what he’s planning on doing now that his name has been a Twitter trending topic.
He legally couldn’t tell me who he wants in the top 3 [lame!], but he did say who he thinks should have made it into the top group which totally surprised me and went against my wishes.
My opinion on Jordan Dorsey is that he’s an incredibly talented singer and musician, but he was a complete d-bag during Hollywood week which probably ruined him, along with song choice last week. Tim confirmed what Seacrest always says about that notorious week in relation to Jordan.
“Hollywood Week is so cut throat and if you get into that and forget who you are, it’s easy to look like a d-bag on the show.”
Speaking of Seacrest, I had to know what he’s really like! I love everything Seacrest does. I want to be him. When I asked Tim what he’s like behind the cameras, I was so excited to hear him say he goes above and beyond his job.
We also talked about his favorite judge, what they do when they’re not shooting the show, and so much more Idol-related, so give it a listen!
As you know, Idol isn’t what made Tim Halperin, and it’s definitely not going to end him. He can’t release an album until September, but he’s taking the immediate opportunity to release his next single! FO FREE!
He performed this song in order to earn a spot in the top 24, but now it’s time for YOU to get it for yourself! Take a listen to his plans, hopes, etc. and his single “The Last Song.”
Uh-MAY-zing song! People were texting in to the show today calling it poetry in a song and in disbelief that he wrote it. He and I both want to hear what you think, so let us know in the comment box below!
Thanks again to Tim for being awesome at life, and everyone be sure to show him some love!
FINALLY we got to vote on Idol last night!!! I have been waiting for this all season. The Top 12 guys performed and Ryan Secreast dropped a bomb! Only 5 of the guys will make it through with America’s vote and the judges will pick one Wild Card. We’re losing 1/2 of the contestants in one week. Wow.
I’ve got three absolute favorite performances from last night’s show. Of course, our man TIM HALPERIN stole the show for me. The judges weren’t as impressed, but I think he’ll still make it through. Check out his version Rob Thomas’s “Come On Over”:
Paul McDonald is someone who didn’t get a whole lot of storyline during the auditions, but man is he amazing or what? Such a rockstar already, at least to me. What do you think?
Finally, my true favorite performance…all personal allegiances to Tim aside…was CASEY ABRAMS. He is just so cool. JLo even called him SEXY. His performance definitely was….
Now…for the worst. I would be SHOCKED to see either of these guys next week.
Jordan Dorsey has been a great talent, but also an overly confident D-Bag this whole time. His overconfidence proved to be his downfall last night. He tried to be USHER…He’s no Usher and it showed. What a trainwreck…
And poor Brett Lowenstern. I would love for him to be great, but the poor little guy just doesn’t have it. Miss Informed, one of our former staffers up here said it best: “If Carrot Top and Willow Smith had a baby, it would be Brett Lowenstern.” I haven’t seen hair-whipping like this since the “hair-ography” episode of “Glee.”
Who were your favorites? Who do you think is DEFINITELY going home?
It’s official! Our Piano Bar guy Tim Haplerin is in the TOP 24!!!
On Tuesday, he’ll compete with the 11 other guys, so be ready to grab your phones and VOTE FOR OUR GUY!
We’re going to celebrate by playing some of his MC Piano Bar performances on the show today. Obviously we don’t have time to play them all, so if you want to hear more we’ve posted most of them here. YOU ROCK TIM!!!! -Frito
It’s getting REAL on American Idol. This is the time when we’re not necessarily weeding out the contestants that are wasting our time, but we’re really having to say goodby to contestants that have some real talent.
In a heart-wrenching moment, Jennifer Lopez had to deliver the news to Chris Medina that he did not make the Top 24. (Chris’s fiancee Juliana suffered brain damage in 2009 and he’s been taking care of her ever since.)
We don’t know the fate of our “hometown hero” Tim Halperin. (Ok, so technically he’s from Nebraska, but he’s claiming Fort Worth, Texas because he went to TCU. I call him “hometown” because he’s also performed in the Candy 95 studios a number of time…So he’s ours!) We’ll find out tonight (2/24) if Tim made it to the Top 24. With a performance like this…how can they say no?
Just for fun…in case you aren’t familiar with Tim Halperin yet, here’s his video for his original song, “She Runs.”
American Idol auditions hit the City of Angels last night and the episode had lots of ups and LOTS of … crazy. Let’s get to the some of the Hollywood-bound contestants right away. First up, someone who has made his way to College Station/Bryan several times and even stopped by the Candy 95 studios a time or two…Tim Halperin!
I know who I’m rooting for now….
Towards the end of the show, we got a little treat with brothers Mark and Aaron Gutierrez. They were so adorable! I’m not sure how far they will get in Hollywood, especially since they can’t sing together in the competion. But their audition just made me smile. Check it out!
Now, let’s get to the crazy. Tynisha Roches not only brought her own microphone, but she literally chased Randy around the audition room. I was afraid for him.
Idol also tried to recreate another General Larry Platt of “Pants On The Ground” fame. But they missed the mark. Either way, 59-year-old Cooper Jones took up a lot of TV time last night with his dancing and ranting. Sorry Cooper…we don’t feel good!
Wondering who made it all the way through Hollywood week? There’s a list of spoilers out all over the web…if you want to find out who supposedly makes it…
