Can Scott McCreery Beat The “American Idol” Dude Curse?

Beyond walking into a ladies’ bathroom or applying to a women’s college, there are not all that many arenas in which being female is a distinct advantage. But if you happen to be one of the final contestants on “American Idol,” having breasts and a vagina is a very good thing. Over the…

Beyoncé Wants To “Make Love,” Stat

Last night, during the finale of “American Idol,” Beyoncé strutted onstage to debut a new song off of her new album, “1+1.” As you can guess, the song shows off her arithmetic skills. But more impressively, the soulful ballad repeats the line “Make love to me,” which feels like a nice return to…

Steven Tyler Loves Borrowing Clothes From Liv’s Closet

“My dad wears girls’ clothes — it’s so funny. Sometimes I see him and I’m like, ‘Nice shirt!,’ because it’s from my closet… I think he’s really handsome. I feel really proud of him. I think he’s a really amazing, magical man and all those funny things that he says that people find so strange,…

This Adam Lambert Fellow Is Really Quite Talented

Last night, during the results show of “American Idol,” season eight runner-up, Adam Lambert, took the stage to perform an acoustic version of his song “Aftermath.” I didn’t watch much of Lambert’s season of “Idol” but I do recall thinking he had great stage presence and a solid set of pipes. I also appreciated…

The 15-year-old Georgia native was inspired to sing by her cousin Holly, who was diagnosed with a brain tumor three years ago. (Heartbreaking story alert!) Lauren, who was described a “beyondo cute” by Steven Tyler (who also may have been referring to her…

“American Idol” Contestant Shares Heartbreaking Story, Sings For Injured Fiancee

Was Fox in cahoots with Kleenex for last night’s “American Idol” episode? Because the brand of tissue might as well have been the episode’s unofficial sponsor, considering the simultaneously heartbreaking and heartwarming story shown during the last 10 minutes. (The rest of the episode, save the weirdo who participates in Civil War reenactments with…

“American Idol” Plays Nice, Turns On The Waterworks

Last night’s “American Idol” sure was a tearjerker, huh? While the first episode of “Idol” on Wednesday had a bunch of standout bad auditions, last night’s most memorable performances were all good. First up, my new spirit animal, Brett Loewenstern, a 16-year-old ginger hippie freak from Florida, who I loved instantly, even before hearing…

Shocker: “American Idol” Season 10 Doesn’t Suck!

I’ll be honest. I did not have high hopes for the new season of “American Idol.” I was sure that the show without Simon Cowell would be like an Italian dinner without red wine. But as I am learning from my drinking sabbatical (now nine days in!), it is possible to enjoy a bowl of…

“American Idol” Taylor Hicks’ Cruise Caught In Drug Scandal

Sometimes scandal comes from the most unlikely of places. Like, say, a jam cruise featuring little-remembered “American Idol” Taylor Hicks? Hicks was set to perform, along with The Grateful Dead’s Bob Weir and Maceo Parker, on the six-day “Bonnaroo at Sea” to the Caribbean. But then federal agents raided the ship before it even set…

Crystal Bowersox’s Wedding Reeked Of Patchouli

We’re sorry you weren’t invited to “American Idol” runner-up Crystal Bowersox’s nuptials this past weekend. If you were, then you could confirm what we suspect—that there was a drum circle, a caravan of VW buses, and a strong scent of patchouli emanating from the crowd. The actual details just aren’t that far off.

8 More Changes “American Idol” Should Make To Shake Things Up

I am panicking about what “American Idol” is about to become. First, we find out that Simon Cowell and Ellen DeGeneres are being replaced by J.Lo and Steven Tyler, who I thought was in rehab.

It’s “American Idol”-geddon!

Today, July 30, will forever be known as D-Day in “American Idol” land. I’m reeling, trying to make sense of what the heck happened in the last 24 hours that has very likely demolished my favorite guilty pleasure competition show. Can things ever be the same again?

“It took me about 12 days to take my jaw off the ground and put it back up. But Mezghan is a lovely girl and I’ve known her for a long time. They make a great couple and I’m happy for them. … It would be an alter ego of Simon to gush about her.

As I predicted, Lee DeWyze snagged the “American Idol” title last night. Go me … I mean … go Lee! But I’ll get back to Lee in a minute since there were two hours’ worth of star-studded performances before we heard his good news.
