Seacrest Out?
August 5th, 2019 under American Idol 9+, Ryan Seacrest. [ Comments: none ]

ABC announced today that Lionel Richie, Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Bobby Jones will all be back on American Idol next year. However, there was one name missing from that group. It is Ryan Seacret. The only on-air talent who has been with the show since the beginning.

Does that mean he is making like his catchphrase and Seacrest out? Karey Burke
President, ABC Entertainment, said, “We are in ongoing conversations with Ryan and we hope he will be returning.”

No reason was given for the delay, but I am sure it is a money issue. Does he really need more of it? He hosts and produces so many shows, what it is going to do with all of that dough? The other reason, I am assuming for the delay, is that he does not want to be traveling back and forth from New York to Los Angeles every week for the singing competition show.

If he does leave Idol, it makes you wonder what his future with Live with Kelly and Ryan will be. Most TV contracts are three years and this is his third year on the morning talk show. I would not be surprised if he left at the end of his contract. The same way it was hard for me as an NYer to live in Atlanta, I am sure it is hard for that boy from Atlanta to live in NYC.

Would you miss him on Idol?


Is Luke Bryan losing it on American Idol?

Lionel Richie shared a video of Luke Bryan dancing for Katy Perry after a long day of filming at Disneyland, and I think the Country singer might be losing it. I mean how else can explains those moves? They are those of a drunk guy at the bar around 3a trying to pick up the last few women that are still there and not someone who is a judge on American Idol. Which makes it a good thing that dancing is not one of the requirements for the singing competition or he would not be sitting at the judges’ table.


Luke Bryan made me cry on American Idol!

Yesterday, Colby Swift gave one heck of a performance on American Idol, but Luke Bryan was focused on something else. The singer noticed that the contestant’s boots had holes in the soles, so Bryan gave him the boots off of his feet. Which was a really noble and sweet gesture, and it made me cry.

That is what American Idol is all about giving someone who really deserves a chance for a better life, one. I hope Swift makes to the top 10 and ultimately wins because he also has a really has a great voice.

When it comes to Bryan, it just made me like him a whole more and I already love him.


Would you say that American Idol and The Voice are the same show now?
May 22nd, 2018 under American Idol 9+, The Voice. [ Comments: none ]

I don’t know about you, but I have not watched The Voice nor American Idol in years. Therefore, I would not know how different or similar the two shows are these days. Thankfully, I have Twitter to do that for me.

Adam Shapiro was able to point out something that the two shows have in common this season. Not that they are singing competitions. Not that American Idol is represented on both of them. What he noticed is that the finalists for both shows look almost identical. On the ABC show, they had Caleb Lee Hutchinson and Maddie Poppe. Meanwhile, on the NBC one, they have Britton Buchanan and Brynn Cartelli.

Therefore, if Cartelli wins tonight like Poppe won last night, then we know both shows are the same and we are right not to watch either. But let’s be honest if we had to choose, we would always choose…The Voice.

UPDATE: The blonde girl one proving that both shows are the same but on different networks.


Catie Turner has a manic Sunday on Idol and Clay Aiken has some words for her
May 7th, 2018 under American Idol 9+. [ Comments: 2 ]

Back when American Idol was on Fox, the three judges, Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson and Paula Abdul, would rip the contestants a new one if they flubbed the lyrics. That was then, now it is a whole new ball game since the show is on ABC with these three judges.

Catie Turner forgot the first few lines to Manic Monday. Instead of starting over starting over she just went on with the song once she remembered the rest of the words. When she was done, Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie, all told her it was OK and that it has happened to them too. Well, American Idol’s real season 2 winner, Clay Aiken, did not like how nice they were to her and wrote, “So when i was on @AmericanIdol I slightly flubbed some lyrics. Nowhere near this noticable.. and even Paula gave me hell. This girl gets a therapy session?! 🙄 Really? Seriously??! What happened to the show we loved? #MakeIdolGreatAgain.”

He is 100% right. How many of us have been to a concert and the singer forgot the lyrics? How pissed off were you? I still remember Sammy Hagar messing up Right Here, Right Now. We pay a lot of money to see them sing, they better know the words to the songs they are singing. Don’t tell them it is OK. I love you Luke, but I will never forget you screwing up the National Anthem. Will you?

I get it she is young, but still, she needs to learn the right way not the wrong way to act as a professional singer. She also has to learn the right way to choose a Prince song and not just one that was sung by another artist. That and she totally messed up The Bangles tune. What was up with her dancing? Like she said it was not her not night. So much so, she was rightfully eliminated.

BTW if this is what American Idol is like now, no wonder it is doing poorly in the ratings. There is nothing positive I can say about it. Can you?
