American Idol: Season 14 - Top 9 Perform

Hello everyone.  As expected, I am out of town and ran into issues getting to this recap.  I finally had some time to (sorta) watch the episode and provide a very quick commentary.  Here goes nothing!

American Idol: Season 14 - Top 11 Perform (again)

Hello Idol watchers!  Well, maybe it shouldn't have been shocking who ended up in that red seat last night.  It certainly wasn't surprising that the save was used.  But, we'll talk about that later.  Movie Night was an interesting night.  People that were really good last week didn't shine this week.  People that were bad last week did much better this week.   And others remained consistent (for better or worse).   Let's dive in!

American Idol: Top 11 Perform

Hello fellow Idol watchers!  Well, after being spoiled with 1 hour episodes, we got blindsided by a 2 hour episode last night!  I'm sure this is how they will be from now on.  1 2 hour episode a week.  It definitely gave the show more room to breathe, and allowed me more control over fast forwarding the nonsense!   Things felt more at home.  But, these performances?  I think I fall for the hype every year that "this is the best crop of contestants, full of potential of tons of stars."   Last year they had people that could sing but had no charisma.  This year they're just full of stage performers who can't carry a tune!  Maybe they're just adjusting to the live shows and it'll improve.  But, I spent more time cringing last night than anything.   We lost a contestant too and we'll discuss that a bit as well.  Let's dive in!

American Idol: Season 14 - Top 12 Revealed and Perform

Hello America! What a crazy packed hour of revealing the top 12 and asking for votes at the same time.  I was so confused, and they didn't even have time to explain what was being voted on.  It turns out that next Thursday will be a Top 10 performance.  So I guess either 11 perform Thursday night or 12 will perform again and the bottom 2 compiled votes will get the boot.  We'll find out.  In any case, I'll pick someone to go home after tonight's performance.  I wasn't expecting to recap tonight, so this will be brief!

American Idol: Season 14 - Top 8 Girls Perform

Hello everyone and welcome back to season 14 coverage of the show that just won't quit!  Well this week seems to be the opposite results of last week.  The boys were really good last week.  The girls were much better this week.  Results were a little surprising to me, but I at least mentioned 3 of the 4 booted contestants names as possibilities!  (Of course, when you name 6 of the 12 as possibles, you're giving yourself pretty good odds, but we won't talk about that.)   Let's dive right into the recap and figure out who's going home!

American Idol: Season 14 - Top 8 Guys Perform

Hello Idol friends and welcome back!  So I went 2 for 4 with my picks for the guys last week.  I'm not too surprised by who went home instead.  We'll get right into it this week.  The Top 8 performed Motown Hits in Motown itself.  The crowd seemed fairly unenthused/uneducated by the local historical music selections, except one dude that was dancing and singing like no one was watching.   Anyway, we'll return to Hollywood next week to reveal the Top 12 on Wednesday and for Top 12 performances on Thursday.  Then, my assumption is we go to 1 day a week.  I assume that one day is Wednesday, but what do I know!?  Our job, should we choose to accept it, is to pick 2 more guys to kick out of our group!  Let's do it!
