American Idol: Season 15, Groups, 1/28/16

January 29th, 2016 · Comments Off on American Idol: Season 15, Groups, 1/28/16

by Lyn Jensen Faces and names are starting to get familiar, and we’re learning some new ones, as the last season of American Idol progresses through Hollywood Week. The field started at 108 last night, as contestants prepared to sing and be judged in groups. They have 24 hours to get together with two or […]

American Idol: Season 15, Hollywood Week Lines, 1/27/16

January 28th, 2016 · Comments Off on American Idol: Season 15, Hollywood Week Lines, 1/27/16

by Lyn Jensen First test of singers during Hollywood Week of American Idol Season 15:  lines of ten, where the judges compare voices and cut about half the field.  Theoretically it gives the judges a chance to compare people side-by-side and separate out the best–although this judging panel has shown it has trouble reaching consensus. […]

American Idol: Season 15, Last Auditions, 1/21/16

January 22nd, 2016 · Comments Off on American Idol: Season 15, Last Auditions, 1/21/16

by Lyn Jensen One of the sadder parts about American Idol leaving us is how we won’t get to see new judges. The final season is being judged by the same threesome that made such a mess of Season 14–and didn’t do such a great job on Season 13, either. This field shapes up according to the whims of […]

American Idol: A Few More Auditions, 1/20/16

January 21st, 2016 · Comments Off on American Idol: A Few More Auditions, 1/20/16

by Lyn Jensen Last night and tonight are the last auditions for American Idol we’ll ever see–unless someone decides to revive the franchise. So far the final talent pool doesn’t look very promising. Did anyone who sang last night sound like the next American Idol, and the last one ever? 1.  A girl says she’s “She’s” sister? […]

American Idol: Season 15, More Auditions, 1/14/16

January 15th, 2016 · Comments Off on American Idol: Season 15, More Auditions, 1/14/16

by Lyn Jensen After three episodes went by with no front-runners emerging, last night we finally saw some auditions that promise the final season of American Idol may live up to its hype after all. Here’s who made it to Hollywood Week and potentially to the voting rounds: 1. and 2. Amber Lynn and James “The Eighth” Dawson […]

American Idol: Season 15, Philly Auditions, 1/13/16

January 14th, 2016 · Comments Off on American Idol: Season 15, Philly Auditions, 1/13/16

by Lyn Jensen Did I catch a continuity fail?  I’m sure I heard Ryan Seacrest announcing last week that this episode would be in New York, but the whole show was in Philadelphia. Last night Harry Connick, Jr. told one contestant they’re looking for a powerhouse, a “bookend” to Season One’s Kelly Clarkson. I can […]

American Idol: Season 15, Auditions, 1/7/16

January 8th, 2016 · Comments Off on American Idol: Season 15, Auditions, 1/7/16

by Lyn Jensen Second night of American Idol auditions for season 15, split between Little Rock and San Francisco (and I think I spotted a continuity fail, because last night’s San Francisco view behind the judges popped up in the premiere, too), and twelve more contestants (plus a montage) got Golden Tickets to Hollywood. At least […]

American Idol: Season 15 Premiere, 1/6/16

January 7th, 2016 · Comments Off on American Idol: Season 15 Premiere, 1/6/16

by Lyn Jensen When Simon Crowell left American Idol, people said the show would suffer because he couldn’t be replaced.  He could have been–but it would have to be someone with the same passion, the same heart.  That’s what’s missing with the current panel of judges. Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban, and Harry Connick, Jr. are […]
