  • ‘American Idol’: Crystal Bowersox, Siobhan Magnus do Miley Cyrus proud

  • ‘American Idol’: Who was sent packing?

     
    “Another Idol Must Fall” — words that decorated the start of “American Idol” tonight. Ha. By my count, three Idols fell during Tuesday's performance show: Paige Miles, Andrew Garcia and Tim Urban. Didi Benami was pretty...
  • '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...
  • Ann Powers: The 'Idol' girls try to go universal, but mostly miss

     
    "[T]here are not two genders," wrote the late feminist scholar Monique Wittig in one of her groundbreaking essays. "There is only one: the feminine, the 'masculine' not being a gender. For the masculine is not the masculine but the general." What could...
  • Catching up with Nick Mitchell (aka Norman Gentle)

     
    Nick Mitchell is still working up to his 15 minutes. When he ambushed the Season 8 "American Idol" auditions as his alter ego, Norman Gentle, belting "Dreamgirls'" "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going" like nobody's business, he clocked in at around five....

  • Idols are split on post-performance behind-the-scenes clips
