AMERICAN IDOL Recap: IDOL Delivers Fantastic Finale and Crowns a Worthy ChampionAMERICAN IDOL Recap: IDOL Delivers Fantastic Finale and Crowns a Worthy Champion
by Matt Tamanini - May 22, 2014

A journey that started nearly a year ago officially ended tonight. From tens of thousands auditioning last summer to one being named the 13th American Idol. For my money, Caleb Johnson and Jena Irene were not only the two most deserving contenders for this season's crown, but they were so by a wide margin. The contentment with knowing that either would be a worthy champion added to a show that returned to the bygone era when IDOL Finales were the highlight of each TV season. (more...)

by Matt Tamanini - May 21, 2014

In Caleb Johnson and Jena Irene, we have the season's only two performers that consistently gave credible, entertaining performances, and also had a professional command of the stage. As you would expect these two heavyweights delivered a knockout of a competition finale. While I always hate the recycled song choices, and don't get me started on the generally nauseating coronation songs, this was a very enjoyable way to close the competition part of the season.

AMERICAN IDOL Preview: IDOL Needs a Mount Rushmore ChampionAMERICAN IDOL Preview: IDOL Needs a Mount Rushmore Champion
by Matt Tamanini - May 20, 2014

No matter what happens in tonight's performances, Jena not only deserves to be crowned this season's champ, but IDOL needs her to be crowned this season's champ. It is no secret that the once indomitable singing competition has taken an unceremonious dive in the ratings in recent years. While the show's total numbers are respectable in this proliferated entertainment environment, if the show is ever to reclaim even a piece to its previous status as a cultural touchstone, it needs to again produce a star that reminds America of the show's power.

AMERICAN IDOL Recap: Sets Its Finale as Top-3 Visit Their HometownsAMERICAN IDOL Recap: Sets Its Finale as Top-3 Visit Their Hometowns
by Matt Tamanini - May 15, 2014

Idol fans, we've been spoiled over the last month. Thirty-minute results shows have kept the stalling and aggravating filler to a minimum, but on the heels of the torturous The Chainsmokers' “performance” of “#Selfie,” I was ready to hate every pain-staking second of the return to a hour-long elimination show. However, The Powers That Be put together one of the most entertaining results show I can remember from any non-SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE show ever. (more...)

Coming immediately on the heels of the always emotionally taxing Hometown visits, each of Season XIII's remaining Idols performed three songs on Wednesday's penultimate performance show. The first round was made up of songs suggested by the surprisingly not-worthless 'full-time' mentor, Randy Jackson. The next round was songs that the judging panel of Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez, and Harry Connick Jr. selected, and the final round consisted of songs the Top-3 had previously performed on the show and were determined by their hometown fans (and by hometown fans, I mean the show's producers).

After Top-11 Week, when the remaining contestants get to spend their summer on our, this is the most important reward for IDOL finalists surviving elimination. The Top-3 will quickly depart Hollywood and head to their hometowns for the annual Cry-Fests, so tonight's elimination has even more riding on it than normal. (more...)

To make sure that the viewers make fully informed decisions, the finalists performed three songs each; a break-up song, a dedication (a la Casey Kasem), and then a make-up song. As always with IDOL Season XIII, the results were a mixed bag. There were some painful performances and one that I believe will go down in the IDOL Hall of Fame. (more...)

So, after last night's elimination of personality vacuum Sam Woolf, IDOL's Final Four; Jena Irene, Caleb Johnson, Jessica Meuse, and Alex Preston, will each take their turns with two songs each that 'celebrate the agony and the ecstasy of music's greatest theme.'
