The boys are up tonight. This is THE week. They are vying for a spot in the top 12 and they will stop at nothing to advance, including one who takes on Christina Aguilera’s “Genie In A Bottle.” No, I’m serious! He’s not the only one to take a risk. We have some pop, some country, some easy listening too, but it’s Michael Lynch (pictured) who gets mad props from the judges tonight. If you want to know why it’s all after the jump.
Sorry for the delay, all. I am very much under the weather. In any case, on with the show. It’s Ladies Night once again and there are eclectic songs in the mix. The judges give us everything from “That was all wrong” to “You are the one everyone has to beat.” Many missteps and a few people right on the mark, among them, DiDi Benami (pictured) who redeems herself quite nicely after last week’s tongue lashing from the judges. A complete wrap up of the night, after the jump.
It’s another results night. 27 million votes this week, plus former Idol finalist Danny Gokey (pictured) performs to promote his new album. Who will be going home and who will be sticking around to battle it out for another week? To recap my predictions: Guys: John Park and Jermaine Sellers. Gals: Lacey Brown and Haeley Vaughn. We’ll see if I am close…after the jump!
It’s Ladies Night and contestant Crystal Bowersox (pictured) who’s fate was up in the air due to complications with diabetes will indeed perform tonight. Let’s hope the women will not be as nervous or jittery as the men were last night. We should see some great performances tonight since just about everyone agrees the women are stronger performers. It will be interesting to see what happens with Crystal since she lost a full day of rehearsal. In fact, she performs first. A full recap, after the jump.
There is a change of plans tonight. The guys will be performing instead of the ladies. It seems contestant Crystal Bowersox (pictured) was sent to the hospital for complications with diabetes. That would have put her out of the competition tonight and she is clearly one of the favorites of the judges. Instead, Idol producers decided to flip flop the guys and girls. Bowersox should be able to perform tomorrow night and next week the routine reverts back to normal with the ladies performing on Tuesday night and the guys Wednesday night. As for this week, it’s the same scenario as last week. The contestants will perform a top Billboard hit of their choosing and two guys and two girls will be sent home Thursday night. With that said, on with tonight’s show… after the jump, of course.
Tonight begins my least favorite of the Idol shows…the results show. Idol producers have to stretch a 5 minute announcement into one hour. So let the waiting begin. Tonight 4 people are going home, the two guys and two gals with the lowest votes. We’ll also be treated to performances by former Idol winner Kris Allen and former Idol contestant Allison Irahita (pictured). On with the full results show, after the jump.
Tonight it’s the guys turn to take over the mic. Like the ladies, they are singing songs from the Billboard chart. It will be interesting to see if they guys take the advice the judges gave the ladies last night. Simon helps inspire the guys by saying he watched some of the rehearsals earlier and if the guys let the nerves get to them, “your career is over.” Nice, Simon. In any case, LEE DEWYZE (pictured), had nothing to worry about since Simon crowned him the best performance of the night. A complete breakdown after the jump.
The live performances begin. For the next 3 weeks, girls and guys perform separately and America will vote for their favorites. Tonight, it’s Ladies Night and hits from the Billboard charts. We have a few surprises and some disappointments. Only a couple of performances were “wow” performances and the judges really seemed to love Lilly Scott (pictured). Sadly, they did not like more than they liked. A complete breakdown is after the jump!
Well, it only took nine years for IDOL to get hip to social networking. In the past seasons, contestants were contractually obligated to shut down their Facebook and MySpace pages, but this year, the producers have had a change of heart. Not only will the contestants have approved (and I am pretty sure monitored) Facebook and MySpace pages, they will also have Twitter feeds. If you have your favorites already, check out how to connect with them AFTER THE JUMP.
Finally, the full TOP 24 is revealed. Last night we learned of the first 7, among them 22-year-old DiDi Benami (above). Tonight, we learn the rest. It’s a fantastic group, a young group and a very talented group. There are also a few surprises, one or two who I thought would make it, but don’t. I don’t know that I would classify anyone of these people as weak or undeserving. In other words, no Sanjaya’s in the bunch. It’s going to be a very good year on IDOL. Get ready for full details on who gets chosen and who gets cut. Big ***SPOILERS*** AFTER THE JUMP!
Breaking News: The CW has announced today (2.16.10) that the hit series Supernatural starring Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles and Misha Collins has been given an early renewal for a a 6th season. However the good news for fans and viewers of the show has been tempered by information coming out that series creator Eric Kripke is stepping down from his duties as show-runner on a day-to-day basis in season 6. Those duties will be turned over to executive producer Sera Gamble. Gamble has been with Supernatural since season 1, coming on board first as a writer than taking on executive producer duties as the seasons progressed. Kripke along with Robert Singer will both continue on with the series in their roles of Executive Producers and will still have a hand in the direction of the series. Word also has it that Kripke will also be using his time to work on a new project for Warner Brothers.
“Cupid, draw back you bow and let your arrow go straight to my lover’s heart for me.”
That’s a line from a very popular Valentine’s Day themed love song, but in Supernatural S.14 My Bloody Valentine (written by Ben Edlund and directed by Mike Rohl), it seems to have a very sinister and deadly consequence. Or does it? That’s what Sam (Jared Padalecki –who is getting married in two weeks to the lovely Genevieve Cortese aka Ruby 2.0) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) Winchester are at first led to believe by the Angel Castiel (Misha Collins) who is convince a Cupid (Lex Medlin, whom I have to say is one confident man) has gone rogue and is killing the lovers it first unites. Castiel tells them that a cupid is actually a lower level cherub and not incontinent. Nor, as we find out are they “little dudes with wings and a diaper”. The one in is this episode is a full grown, robust looking man with the gentle playfulness of an over eager puppy. It becomes apparent to both Winchesters and to Castiel that the whimsical cupid is not the one setting lovers up for the kill and they also quickly discover that it isn’t just hungry hearts that are dying, other people with other hungers are falling victim as well.
