American Idol Journal – WEEK 5 PIA TOSCANO IS GONE!

CAN WE VOTE THE JUDGES OFF? Once again I’m saddened by the judges comments. If you were Stefano Langone you have to be feeling like the judges are truly NOT in your corner. My advice to him from now on… ignore what they say and go with what has worked for you.


American Idol Journal – Week 8 (Top 6)

This night turned up some unexpected things. First, two wardrobe FAILS… ‘Niffer comes out looking like a latino Pebbles Flintstone, second, Jacob Lusk looking like the old Windows HOT DOG STAND theme.


American Idol Journal – WEEK 6 PAUL MCDONALD IS GONE!

In a bit of a surprise Paul McDonald fell from grace in one week.  Oddly, his performances were getting stronger in my view and I certainly thought he was better this week than Stefano Langone.   America’s voting is sure…


American Idol Journal – Week 4 (Top 11… again)

One reality of this season is about to happen, that being my prediction of two girls and two boys would making it to the final four.  Further I nailed which four it would be.  Let’s see if I can get…


American Idol Journal – Week 12 THE FINALS!

Unlike in most of the past 9 seasons, both contestants had very well written song to perform, rare kudos to the producers for those songs. I thought Lauren ended on a better performance than Scotty.


American Idol Journal – WEEK 7 STEFANO IS LAN-GONE!

Stefano Langone says goodbye this evening, bitter sweet I say. Stefano has a quality voice but failed to perform at a high level each week. I had forgotten that he was a wild card save for the Top 12 (turned out to be the Top 13, remember Naima, she was in that final “tough call” for the judges) many weeks ago. It shouldn’t be lost on anyone that he lasted to the Top 7, good on him.


American Idol Journal – WEEK 3 CASEY ABRAMS IS… safe?

On balance, no one has won this competition with the vocal styling coming from Casey and he won’t either; he’ll have to return to style that actually captured the imagination of the judges during Hollywood Week in order to make a serious run.
