The thing with Bruce, and any artist like Bruce, is that the most important thing is the song, getting across the meaning and the character of the song. Bruce is almost like an actor in that he creates a character for each of his songs.
As entertaining as it might be to watch the star-less sequel to "Contagion" play out among emotionally volatile reality contestants on "American Idol" (i.e. not entertaining in the slightest), I believe we all signed up for this show to watch some actual singing, and thankfully, that was in ready supply this week.
"This is Hollywood week, and THIS ... is a complete waste of your time." Okay, that's not exactly how Ryan Seacrest introduced the week's second "American Idol" episode, but it certainly should've been. Where was the singing in this singing competition?
Gazing into the full-length mirror left in the back of the room by a P.A. on a lunch break, Idol judge, Steven Tyler, accidentally took his own reflec...
I haven't been overly impressed with many of the auditionees this season, but the singers in St. Louis were generally cute, commercial and easy to listen to ... Missouri might be the state to beat.

Possibly the most bizarre (and transparently fake) audition so far, "Magic Cyclops" was certainly memorable for trying to be memorable, affecting a terrible British accent while insisting that he was from Davenport, Iowa.
Ali's take on Corinne Bailey Rae's "Just Like a Star" was raspy and tremulous ... There was an Adele-like quality to her tone that made her interesting to listen to.
The hour-long installment seemed positively svelte compared to last night's episode, and there was apparently no time to highlight the worst of the worst, only the best of the best.
