American Idol 2010: Rating the Top 16

American Idol 2010: Did the Top 10 Girls Step it Up?

Overall the girls did NOT do as good as the guys for week 2 of American Idol season 9.  The judges were almost as bad as the singers with their negativity and contradictory statements which Simon admitted too.  The judges picked the singers for their looks, background stories and lastly their [...]

American Idol 2010: Hollywood Week Has Finally Arrived

I am soooo happy we finally made it to Hollywood for season 9 of American Idol!  It seemed to me that the audition process went on much longer than 3 weeks.  We got to see some amazing talent last night and of course the judging debut of one Ellen DeGeneres.  [...]

American Idol 2010 “Road to Hollywood” Episode Hits Dead End

The “Road to Hollywood” episode for American Idol Season 9 felt to me like they just needed to fill an hour of time and threw this together.  It griped me that for the first half hour it was all Victoria again.  We saw brief peeks at the other guest judges [...]
