American Idol


American Idol – And so six remain.

On Wednesday night’s episode the Idol contenders had to pick any song from 21st century. Casey “Soft Lips” Abrams clearly stole the show with his rendition of Maroon 5’s “Harder To Breathe.” He also took Jennifer Lopez’s breath away when he kissed her during his performance, giving her the most action she’s had since marrying Marc Anthony. Steven Tyler was so excited by the sexual chemistry between J.Lo and Casey – errrrr, I mean, the performance he used the F** word on live TV! Whoops! We expect that from some more low-brow reality shows (see: Housewives, ANYWHERE), but not family-friendly idol. Scottie McCreery was, of course, safe simply for being the cutest person in the world with the most adorable accent. Who cares if he can sing!

62 Million votes determined that Jacob Lusk’s touching, but sappy rendition of “Dance With My Father” put him as the first member of the bottom three. Also hanging out in the bottom three were Stefano Langone and Haley Reinhart. Haley turned out to be safe after an awesome version of Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep.”

Then Katy Perry assaulted both our ears (with her weird, whiny song E.T.) and our fashion sensibilities by wearing a white satin spandex, caped, sequined jumpsuit. Yes – I just typed the words WHITE SATIN SPANDEX, CAPED, SEQUINED JUMPSUIT to describe an article of clothing. *Shudder*

As for the elimination, Stefano’s long reign in the bottom three ended as the judge’s wild card pick was sent home. Poor Stefano! I know you have great things ahead of you – after all Jennifer Lopez thinks you’re “hot” and she loves you! He very graciously left by singing “Lately”

Next week we are treated to a series of fun and exciting Carol King songs as interpreted by the six finalists!

TELL US – DID THE VOTERS GET IT RIGHT? WHO ARE YOU ROOTING FOR TO WIN THIS SEASON?

Wednesday night on American Idol, judge Jennifer Lopez voiced her support for girl power, making it clear she did not want to see anymore girls going home, and she got her wish.

A week after Pia Toscano‘s shocking elimination, Paul McDonald was eliminated from AI. The 26-year-old Nashville, Tennessee native became the first guy to be eliminated this season following the eliminations of five female contestants.

Joining Paul in the bottom three were Haley Reinhart and Stefano Langone. Stefano, who has been in the bottom many times this season, lived to sing another week.

“We’re bummed about this, man. You’re the life of the party,” said host Ryan Seacrest to Paul after delivering the bad news. “You’ve had such an amazing impact on our show. You really have.”

The remaining top 7 Idols return next week to sing songs from the 21st century. Katy Perry will perform her new single “E.T.” on next week’s results show, wtih season seven winner David Cook returning to premiere his new song ‘The Last Goodbye‘.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON PAUL’S ELIMINATION? SHOULD STEFANO HAVE BEEN SENT PACKING INSTEAD?

Less than 24 hours after her shocking elimination from American Idol, UsWeekly is reporting Pia Toscano has scored herself a record deal!

According to UsWeekly, the 22-year-old New York native has signed a deal under Interscope Records, chaired by Idol mentor Jimmy Iovine, and will record her debut album right away.

“Pia is being signed to a deal with Interscope Records who are rushing her into the studio to record an album ASAP,” a source familiar with the contract talks reveals. “Starting [Thursday] night after the show, Interscope told her they wanted her and first thing [Friday] morning Interscope brass started calling every top songwriter and producer in town to get an album together and rush release it.”

When it comes to the contract, the insider adds that “Papers are being finalized. It’s basically a done deal. She’s signing. They rushed everything but she’s so excited.”

Following her elimination, Pia told reporters on Friday, “You don’t know for sure why things happen, but you know, it did! It was my time to go on the show and I’m excited to see what my future holds.”

It seems the judges’ decision to use their one time save early on this season came back to hunt them.

In what is being called one of the most shocking eliminations in American Idol history, fan favorite Pia Toscano, 22, was sent packing on Thursday night.

After being in the bottom three with Stefano Langone, and Jacob Lusk, host Ryan Seacrest announced Pia had been eliminated from the show.

Everyone, especially the judges, were shocked at Pia’s exit.  “I have no idea what just happened here. I’m shocked, I’m angry…I don’t even know what to say,” said a tearful Jennifer Lopez. “A mistake is one thing, but lack of passion is unforgivable,” said Steven Tyler chiding the home audience for failing to vote for Pia.

“I’m gutted. You’re one of the best singers in this!” added Randy Jackson. Even the twitterverse was up in arms with many fans, celebs and past Idol contestants voicing their disappointment. “I can not believe they just eliminated pia ! ReAlly..???? Long as she walked away with that voice she will be alright !! Just hate to see talent like that go!” tweeted Jennifer Hudson.

Pia remained a trooper as she closed the show with a performance of “I’ll Stand By You,” receiving a standing ovation following her performance. She broke down in tears after the song as her fellow contestants rallied around her.

Pia’s exit makes the fifth consecutive female eliminated from the show this season. None of the men have been eliminated with only two girls remaining in the top eight now, almost guaranteeing a male will win the show.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON PIA’S ELIMINATION? DID THE JUDGES MAKE AN ERROR IN USING THEIR SAVE TWO WEEKS AGO?

Following the judges’ use of the one time save last week on American Idol, it was double elimination night and there were no do-overs.

It seemed the fans of the show were well aware of this as they voted in record numbers. Over 55 million votes were cast this week according to host Ryan Seacrest, 25 million more votes than last week.

Last week’s least vote getter Casey Abrams was able to rest easy as he was safe from elimination. In the bottom three were Naima Adedapo, Thia Megia and Paul McDonald, with Naima and Thia getting the boot.

Not exactly a surprising elimination night as the two contestants have had a bit of a roller coaster season. Naima’s reggae rendition of “I’m Still Standing” on Wednesday night was panned by the judges, while Thia’s “Heat Wave” did not fare much better plus she was also in the bottom three last week.

Naima and Thia will still get to tour with the other remaining finalists as it was revealed during last Thursday’s elimination that the entire top 11 will get to participate in the summer tour.

Another interesting fact? The latest elimination makes this season the first time ever in Idol history the first four eliminated finalists were all women.

In other Idol news, In Touch Weekly is reporting that Casey Abrams and Haley Reinhart might be dating! An insider tells In Touch that Haley and Casey, both age 20, have become quite the cozy couple.

“Most of their downtime is spent together and they have a very touchy-feely relationship,” reveals the insider. “They’re always lying on each other when they’re around the other contestants and everybody thinks they’re hooking up.”

TELL US – DID THE VIEWERS GET IT RIGHT? WHO ARE YOUR ROOTING FOR?


There was not a dull moment on American Idol’s elimination results show Thursday night, in what some are calling the craziest Idol episode ever.

In a round of events no one could have predicted, Casey Abrams found himself in the bottom three alongside Thia Megia, not so surprising, and Stefano Langone, which was a little surprising.

Ultimately, Casey was the one who received the least amount of votes, thus having to sing for his life in the hopes of a last-minute save from judges Randy Jackson, Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler.

About 25 seconds into singing “Don’t Need No Doctor,” the judges cut Casey’s’ song short, letting him know they needed to hear no more. He was being saved. “We know who you are, Casey,” said Randy. “We don’t need to hear you sing anymore, do we Steven?” “We made a decision to keep you on,” added Steven.

“Are you kidding, are you kidding,” muttered 20-year-old Casey over and over, appearing very stunned and almost on the verge of collapse, before staggering over to the judges’ table to thank them.

And just like that, the judges used their one and only save of the season, which means with 11 contestants still remaining, no one else can be saved. This has left some wondering if the judges were right in their decision to use the judge’s save now. Next week, two of the contestants will be getting the boot instead of just one.

TELL US – WERE THE JUDGES RIGHT IN USING THEIR SAVE ON CASEY?

It was elimination night on American Idol Thursday and not surprisingly, 21-year-old New Yorker Karen Rodriguez got the boot.

Following the performances of songs from the year they were born the previous night, the top 12 contestants learned their fate with a bottom 3 that included Naima Adedapo, Haley Reinhart and Karen.

The judges ultimately decided against using their “save” on Karen, even though she gave a good performance of Mariah Carey’s “Hero.” Judge Randy Jackson admitted the decision was not unanimous, and judging from Jennifer Lopez’s reaction, it was pretty obvious she wanted to save Karen.

Meanwhile, JLo had her own problems last night as she was the target of some catcalls via two members of the audience who took issue with what they saw as her flirting with contestant Stefano Langone. According to E!, two ladies yelled to Jennifer, “You’re married!” and pointed out her husband Marc Anthony in the audience. As for Jlo, she didn’t react to the words from the two women while some people sitting near the yellers appeared taken aback.

And as of this morning, some fans of the show now feel perhaps Naima, who has been repeatedly criticized for her “pitchy” vocals, should have been the one to get the axe instead of Karen. “I’m beginning to have a passionate hate for the word ‘pitchy,’ ” said Naima to Ryan. “And by the time this is done I will love the word ‘pitch,’ and we will be in perfect harmony.”

While the jury’s remains out on whether or not Naima should have been the one eliminated, one thing’s clear – the viewers got it right this week with the bottom three.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON LAST NIGHT’S AI? DO YOU THINK NAIMA IS WORSE THAN KAREN? THOUGHTS ON JLO GETTING CALLED OUT?

Let the competition begin!

Just like that, we are now one step closer to finding the ultimate American Idol for season 10. Last night, the show narrowed down the 24 finalists to the top 13. The full list - Jacob Lusk, Haley Reinhart, Thia Megia, (back row) Lauren Alaina, Stefano Langone, Naima Adedapo, Karen Rodriguez, Ashthon Jones, James Durbin, Scotty McCreery, Pia Toscano, (front) Paul McDonald and Casey Abrams.

The show began last night with Ryan Seacrest introducing the Top 24 while also announcing that after the cuts are made, the judges will ask some of the eliminated contestants to sing for a wild-card spot. “It’s going to be a tough night for us,” said judge Jennifer Lopez.

Entertainment Tonight also reports that the judges, who were only supposed to pick 2 wildcards, simply couldn’t narrow it down. “They didn’t make a final decision to make it 13 until the end,” said Ryan.

“We saw so many talented kids we didn’t know what we were going to quite do,” Randy Jackson explained. “I’m still thinking about it,” said Jlo. “I’m like, ‘Did we do the right thing? Did we put the right people in?'”

Meanwhile, Jlo, who would have never made it to the Hollywood round had she tried out for the show, is making certain to use the show to restart her stale music career. Her new music video, “On The Floor”, premiered last night while the judges were mulling over the wild card performances. That video is below -
