Now that Season 12 is over, let's judge Idol's judges, Keith Urban, Nicki Minaj, Randy Jackson and Mariah Carey, for all they're worth -- and, hell, Seacrest too. Frankly, they all deserve it.
It's been a long road but the "American Idol" finale is finally here. With country singer Kree Harrison and the soulful Candice Glover as the only two...
Candice ended the night belting out "Somewhere" from West Side Story, and her powerful vocals had Keith asking, "How do you that?" and Randy declaring it to be one of the best vocals in "Idol" history.
Nobody was eliminated last week, which meant all four girls got the chance to perform one more time. With another week gone by and all four contestants still in the running, the pressure was even higher to stand out.
Angie won over the judges with Julie London's "Cry Me a River." Keith called it celestially powerful and Nicki and Randy both declared Angie to be the winner of the night.
Angie decided to lighten things up with Smokey Robinson's "Shop Around." Keith felt that she was musically constrained by the song and Nicki aggressively told her, "I think you came out to try to show a different side of Angie that you didn't have to show us."
Candice's rendition of "I Who Have Nothing" was exactly what the judges and audience needed. After the standing ovations (except from Mariah, whose skirt was apparently too tight to stand), Nicki declared that no one should be allowed to ever sing the song again.
Call me a radical, but maybe a gay male judge is just what the show needs. In this edition of Weeklings!, I revisit all 12 seasons of Idol and discover what the show would've been like if an opinionated gay man criticized the competing singers.
No matter what job we get or relationship we embark upon, the practice of doing the same thing every day is a form of monotony we're not easily accustomed to, and the thought of it continuing on forever creates terror in our liberated souls.
With 10 male contestants waiting to perform and only five open spots, the tension was running high on "American Idol." Continue on to find out who the "American Idol" Season 12 Top 20 are!
The entire night built up to Zoanette Johnson's performance, and her powerful rendition of "Circle of Life" (complete with a lion's mane) did not disappoint. All of the judges gave her a standing ovation (minus Mariah, but she's above that).
In the first round of Vegas Week, 10 of the 20 girls performed for the judges and audience, laying it all out on the floor. At the end of the night, five of the girls had to be cut -- so whose "Idol" journey ended last night and who made it through?
It's the final night of Hollywood Week at "American Idol," which means tonight is the night the Top 40 are selected! The competition has gotten more a...
It's "Solo Day" at "American Idol," which means those lucky contestants who made it through the group auditions still have one more hurdle to go. With the judges harsher than ever (here's lookin' at you, Nicki), tensions are running high and no one is safe.
The evening ended with a surprise appearance from former judge Steven Tyler dressed in full drag. Tyler claimed to just be stopping in to say hi, but let's be real, he obviously came by to keep the divas of the season in check.
In the final and most emotional audition of the night, Matheus Fernandes discussed his struggle with bullying due to his height. He performed "A Change is Gonna Come" by Sam Cooke and his voice and his story touched the judges.
