After weeks and weeks and weeks of auditions, the American Idol top 12 were announced last night. The top 10 – based on votes – were Maddie Walker, Jax, Tyanna Jones, Sarina Joi-Crowe, and Joey Cook for the girls and Qaasim Middleton, Nick Fradiani, Daniel Seavey, Clark Beckham, and Rayvon Owen for the guys. The wild cards went to Adanna Duru and Quentin Alexander.
I was under the impression that I was the only person in America still watching American Idol, but, um, apparently not. There is no way in hell Daniel, who’s fresh from his mother’s womb, and Qaasim, who’s a seizure waiting to happen, would have made it to the top 24, let alone the top 10, based on my votes. I’m shocked Daniel and Qaasim were voted in over Quentin Alexander and Mark Andrew. Thankfully, the judges saved Quentin (and the season for me) with a wild card, but I mourn the loss of Mark. This competition needs Quentin.
As you all know,Kandi Burrusstied the knot with Todd Tucker this past Friday, and she went the traditional wedding route–or the traditional Bravo wedding route, at least! Is a Bravolebrity's wedding even legal if is isn't filmed for a spin-off? Probably not…
What do you do when your on minute fourteen of your fifteen minutes? If you're a reality star, you could file a law suit? What happens if your fifteen minutes were over so long ago that no one remembers who you are? I think the answer is clear. You sue American Idol for $250 million.
At least that is what Corey Clark is doing after getting booted from the Top Ten back in 2003 for allegedly not being forthcoming with information about a prior arrest. He also claimed to have had an affair with judge Paula Abdul, but that isn't why he was disqualified according to the Fox singing competition.
Much like the other reality competitions before it, TheX Factor needs a revamp. Let's face it, unless it's The Voice, no one is really watching on the daily…or are you? I've never been one for the these shows (although I did get addicted to American Idol back in the day), but I do love to watch a moody Simon Cowell. Plus, who doesn't love to see what color hair Demi Lovato is sporting on any given night?
USA Today is reporting that Simon has grand plans for the upcoming season of the X Factor. He's talking shake-ups, y'all! Simon himself even wants a new role in the production.
Forgive me, but I didn't realize that American Idol was still going to be churning out seasons. I used to be addicted to the original talent showcase…and not just for the crazy first round auditions. On that note, do we know what William Hung is doing right now?
Once the show started trading out judges like Housewives trade out Hermes bags and cocktails, it seemed to be on a constant decline. My dawg Randy Jackson, the only original judge remaining, decided to cut his losses after the most recent season, and his counterparts have been quitting left and right. Keith Urban appears to be the only one who has any interest remaining on the sinking ship.
However–and I never saw this coming–there are loud rumblings that the show is in talks to bring back a former judge who I'd actually tune in to see. I never gave much thought to Jenny from the Block, but I'll readily admit that I really enjoyedJennifer Lopez on Idol. If she returns to judging, maybe I'll return to watching!
Well, I can't say I'm shocked to hear that Rasheeda and Kirk Frost won't be trying to work things out after his televised menage a trois. I honestly thought that it was scripted for Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta drama, but even so, it was incredibly, INCREDIBLY inappropriate.
Not surprisingly, I'm not the only one who thinks Kirk is a big ol' ball of jackhole. Rapper Nicki Minaj, who is a huge fan of the show, wasn't very happy with Kirk's behavior…and she did what any normal celebrity would do–she took to Twitter to air her disdain for the married reality star.
