Susan Boyle’s Got Talent

When Susan Boyle tried out for “Britain’s Got Talent,” I bet she never dreamed that no only would she WOW the judges (including the ol’ curmudgeons Simon Cowell and his pal, Piers Morgan) or that she would become an overnight internet sensation.  I’ve never been particularly interested in “Britain’s Got Talent” or its American counterpart,Continue reading “Susan Boyle’s Got Talent”

Voting:: American Idol vs. American President

By Andrew J. Wilhelm Congratulations to the latest “American Idol” David Cook, who received the majority of the 99.7 million votes cast. While the inconvenience of college cut into my T.V. viewing, , I am a big fan of the show. The overall premise of the show, to give an amateur singer the chance ofContinue reading “Voting:: American Idol vs. American President”

David Cook’s Crown

I’ve been watching all season, and I just noticed that DC is either left-handed or likes playing his guitar backwards. The guitar, incidentally, is his brother’s with the initials “AC” (Andrew Cook). David’s brother is the one who got him to try out and has been suffering from cancer. Incidentally, Mama and Papa Cook seemContinue reading “David Cook’s Crown”

American Idol…finally!!!

“American Idol” lost much of its sparkle this week without Brooke White (watch her exit interview)…however, the show was full of laughs. Choosing songs from the Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame, the Top 4 sang two classic hits. Except for Jason Castro. I’m not sure what he was doing. Why on earth couldn’t theContinue reading “American Idol…finally!!!”

Review: Running Back to You–Chris Sligh

Album Release: May 6 By Amy Sondova From his wild curly hair to his off-the-beaten-path look, Chris Sligh seemed an unlikely candidate for “American Idol” Season 6, yet he managed to slip by thousands even making the show’s Top 10. Less than a year later, Sligh releases Running Back to You on indie label BrashContinue reading “Review: Running Back to You–Chris Sligh”

Brooke’s Time To Go

Haha! I wrote this last night and instead of publishing it just saved it in my drafts! She looks so cute with that guitar, even though her rendition of “Daydream Believer” was kind of off. I yelled, “No!”, threw my notebook in the general direction of the television set, and buried my face into aContinue reading “Brooke’s Time To Go”

American Idol Does Neil Diamond

The one and only Neil Diamond. Simon hit the nail on the head when he said, “This is officially the strangest show we’ve ever done.” Indeed it was a strange night on “American Idol” with Neil Diamond being this week’s mentor. I know; it sounds like the subject of an “American Idol” sketch on “SundayContinue reading “American Idol Does Neil Diamond”

It’s A Cook Off!

The very single David Cook. Yes, ladies, David Cook is single. That’s one of the fascinating tidbits viewers picked up with tuning in to “American Idol’s” elimination show tonight. This season viewers can now call in on elimination nights to ask questions to the judges or contestants. Naturally, the questions are always of a seriousContinue reading “It’s A Cook Off!”

TiVo Was Wrong!

SYESHA IS SAFE!!! Looks like TiVo isn’t locked in on the pulse of “American Idol” fans after all. In tonight’s shocking elimination, Aussie rocker Michael Johns was sent home. Ironically, his rendition of “Dream On” was better tonight than on Tuesday night. There was an audible gasp from the crowd and the judges (minus Simon)Continue reading “TiVo Was Wrong!”

TiVo’s Predicts Weekly “Idol” Outcome

The title of the post is a bit long, but it’s a lot nicer than “TiVo Predict’s ‘Idol’ Loser”. That just sounds mean! Week after week, TiVo has been able to accurately predict who gets canned on the “American Idol” elimination shows…and tonight’s victim is…SYESHA! (Full story) At least it’s not Brooke…phew! I knew thoseContinue reading “TiVo’s Predicts Weekly “Idol” Outcome”
