  • Ann Powers: Lost and found in the House of Usher

     
    When my music-obsessed friends ask me how I can stand writing about "American Idol" every week (and they do increasingly in this less-than-stellar season), I often declaim on the importance of getting the wide view of pop -- a picture with soundtrack of...
  • Presenting your season 9 Top 12...

     
    More than 100,000 auditioned and it's come down to 12. Some might call it a travesty, others may point a finger to a VoteForTheWorst.com, whose sole purpose is to mess with the "American Idol" rankings (if that's the case, a job well done). A few might be...
  • ‘American Idol’: ‘Big Mike’ Lynche, Casey James, Lee DeWyze shine on soul night

     
    Usher tonight lectured the “American Idol” contestants on performing, but the big star wasn't being altruistic. He pushed his new album with a little help from Ryan Seacrest. Then it was on to the singing. Rhythm, blues and...
  • Wednesday's 'Idol' elimination is a teary affair

     
    In a continuing effort to shield our West Coast brethren and not prematurely spoil tonight's "Idol" results, we offer a blog post title that could easily apply to anyone but is also completely obvious. With that in mind, Wednesday's bottom three couldn'...
  • Guest blogger Nick Mitchell breaks down the Top 10

     
    Season 8 Top 24 contender Nick Mitchell cracked us up last week. So much so that we thought he simply must be a guest blogger at some point this season, and the more contestants he can riff on, the better! Fortunately for us, Nick has a week off from...
  • Ann Powers: Has 'Idol' gone too indie?

     
    I'm supposed to be on vacation, but I can't resist a little post on a subject that's been haunting me this week. We now know our Top 12, and some -- myself included -- are disappointed that two of the more idiosyncratic and intriguing performers, Alex...
  • 'Idol' rehearsals: a view from the inside

     
    Well, weren’t we just tickled pink to be invited into the secret lair that is Monday’s “American Idol” rehearsal. That’s right, just the Top 9, executive producer Ken Warwick, stage manager Debbie Williams, Rickey Minor and the “Idol” band,...
  • 12 things we learned at the Top 12 party

     
    As has become "American Idol" tradition, after the last semifinals elimination episode, the Top 12 were chauffeured to West Hollywood, then paraded down a blue carpet packed to the gills with media sorts of all shapes and sizes. From beginning to end, the...
  • The Top 9 share their Beatles memories

     
    They may be British songwriters, but for three years running, Lennon-McCartney week, or "Beatles night" as it's loosely referred to, has become one of "American Idol's" most popular themes. And it's no wonder -- the songs outshine the singing time and...
  • Guest blogger Alexis Grace talks Beatles, wardrobe and hair envy

     
    Season 8's Alexis Grace may have seen her Top 12 run cut short (we're still recovering from her 11th place elimination last year), but since that ill-fated performance of "Jolene" on Grand Ole Opry week, she's taken to the airwaves as an "Idol" pundit...
  • 'Idol' results show minute-by-minute: Big Mike learns a little humility

     
    There's no doubt this season of "American Idol" has been unpredictable, but Michael Lynche's near-ouster truly came out of left field, at least for the studio audience on results night. We casually strolled into the "Idol"-dome on Wednesday, firm in our...
  • Monday morning wrap: McPhee, Archuleta and other Idols go out and play

     
    As the weather warms across the country, the "American Idol" alumni come out to play: at sports events and colleges and charity concerts (and sometimes, sportily, at college charity concerts). This weekend was filled with them: Katharine McPhee plays...
