  • Ann Powers: The Top 12 meet the Rolling Stones

  • Guest blogger Jon Peter Lewis talks Top 12

     
    In the first of a (hopefully) regular series, "Idol" Season 3 alumnus, "American Nobody" host and longtime F.O.I.T. (friend of Idol Tracker) Jon Peter Lewis is our guest blogger for the week. He breaks down the Top 12's first round and will join us for...
  • Ann Powers: The Boys take their chances

     
    "Dude, believe in yourself." That was Randy Jackson, addressing one of the 12 trembling mangenues who took the stage during Wednesday's overall fiasco of an "American Idol" episode. Dawg should write a book -- a self-help book, with plenty of lists and...
  • Orianthi is a Casey James fan

     
    It wasn't her first time sharing a stage with an Idol -- she crossed that off her To-Do list by performing with Carrie Underwood on the 2009 Grammy Awards -- but Australian guitar virtuoso Orianthi felt the emotional vortex of the competition firsthand on...
  • 'Idol' results show: Minute by minute

     
    Wednesday's "American Idol" was a jam-packed episode. Not only were there 12 contestant verdicts to get through in an hour, Season 7 winner David Cook also performed along with master shredder Orianthi (more on her "Idol" experience here) and dance-...
  • Next week's theme: Teen Idols

     
    The theme for Tuesday night's two-hour performance show is Teen Idols, a first for "American Idol" in its nine seasons on the air. Fox made the announcement following Wednesday's elimination episode, but offered no details on the criteria. Who of the 11...
  • Fantasy 'Idol': Big Star night

     
    Like many longtime music journalists, I mourned the death of power pop pioneer Alex Chilton last week. He was the frontman of Big Star, one of the most underappreciated bands of the 1970s whose musical legacy far outlasted their album-making years. Anyone...
  • The 'American Idol' Judge Power Rankings: The Top 24

     
    Simon Cowell may be out the door, but all of the "American Idol" judges have something to gain if they make a good showing this season. Kara DioGuardi and Randy Jackson have just one year left on their contracts, and nothing spells ka-ching! like a...
  • Ann Powers: Underconfident, the Idols overreach

     
    Hubris. Whomever remains to sing and, eventually, go on the summer tour after Wednesday's elimination round on "American Idol" should spend some time pondering that very old but suddenly relevant term. Though this season's remaining bunch is hardly...
  • ‘American Idol’: Crystal Bowersox, Siobhan Magnus do Miley Cyrus proud

     
    This week’s “American Idol” performance show seemed to be over in the first half-hour. One performance hurt so bad, and that wasn’t good. Miley Cyrus, who’s only 17, played mentor. She was positive, generous and thoughtful. I...
  • 'Idol' minute-by-minute: Save a prayer for Paige

     
    Compared to Tuesday night's snoozy episode, Wednesday's elimination, which is usually a dour affair, had a lot more energy than we anticipated. Is the Wham! group number to thank? The sweet pairing of Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato? Or were the Top 10 simply...
  • Steve Lillywhite 'incensed' over 'Idol's' top 12 guys, planning new video

     
    Steve Lillywhite says the "American Idol" judges "messed up" by choosing Season 9's current crop of guys. The award-winning producer who counts U2, Jason Mraz, Matchbox Twenty and the Dave Matthews Band among his long list of credits, tells Idol Tracker...
