American Idol: Season 15, Top Ten, 2/25/16

February 26th, 2016 · Comments Off on American Idol: Season 15, Top Ten, 2/25/16

by Lyn Jensen No theme to American Idol last night, as far as I could tell. Host Ryan Seacrest said something about songs of Idol, memories of Idol, but that was just about the clips that introduced each member of Season 15’s top ten–as they discussed their favorite memories of the show. Everyone appeared to be singing whatever they wanted to, and […]

American Idol: Season 15, Wildcard Night, 2/24/16

February 25th, 2016 · Comments Off on American Idol: Season 15, Wildcard Night, 2/24/16

by Lyn Jensen Keeping up with the format of the final season of American Idol is a challenge, since it’s unlike any season before. Wednesday night was the Wild Card Round, and some contestants had to sing for the public’s vote. Last night started with the judges giving four singers a free pass to the finals:  Dalton Rapatoni, […]

American Idol: Season 15, Semi-Finals, Judges’ Selections, 2/18/16

February 19th, 2016 · Comments Off on American Idol: Season 15, Semi-Finals, Judges’ Selections, 2/18/16

by Lyn Jensen You could say the semi-finalists of this American Idol season have been divided into two teams of twelve. The judges (Harry, J-Lo, and Keith) cut five from each team, then the public gets to vote on the combined remainder next week. Last night, though, was taken up by duets with Idol vets and the judges’ […]

American Idol: Season 15, Semi-finals, 2/17/16

February 18th, 2016 · Comments Off on American Idol: Season 15, Semi-finals, 2/17/16

by Lyn Jensen Semi-finals on this season of American Idol are constructed like a tournament bracket:  the top half of the draw competed last week, and the bottom half last night. Tonight the judges will cut five contestants from this half.  Then next week–if I understand what’s happening–public voting begins, and only the top ten vote-getters […]

American Idol: Season 15, Semi-finals and Results, 2/11/16

February 12th, 2016 · Comments Off on American Idol: Season 15, Semi-finals and Results, 2/11/16

by Lyn Jensen While 12 of the final 24 semi-finalists sang duets with Idol veterans last night, it’s a fair bet the judges were already 99 percent certain who they wanted to cut. Seeing the twelve contestants side-by-side with some of the all-time Idol talent just gave them one more reason to make the cuts they did. Some of […]

American Idol: Season 15, New Semi-finals Format, 2/10/16

February 11th, 2016 · Comments Off on American Idol: Season 15, New Semi-finals Format, 2/10/16

by Lyn Jensen American Idol is devoting at least four episodes to the semi-finals but Season 15 has a different format from any previous season. Apparently the public won’t be voting, at least not yet.  Twelve of the twenty-four singers sang solos last night.  Tonight is devoted to duets between the current field and Idol […]

American Idol: Season 15, Walk to the Judges, 2/4/16

February 5th, 2016 · Comments Off on American Idol: Season 15, Walk to the Judges, 2/4/16

by Lyn Jensen We now know who the top twenty-four of the final season of American Idol are. We have some people who shouldn’t be there, but we have enough people who can carry the remainder of the season that we’ll keep watching–at least for a while longer. Thursday night’s episode showed the fifty-one remaining contestants making the walk […]

American Idol: Season 15, Hollywood Week Continues, 2/3/16

February 4th, 2016 · Comments Off on American Idol: Season 15, Hollywood Week Continues, 2/3/16

by Lyn Jensen Hollywood Week is about to end on Season 15 of American Idol. Soon we’ll be seeing the contestants walk to the judges, and then it’ll be time to vote. What happened last night, though, was we saw an hour of featured contestants singing solos, then the judges cutting by roomfuls of people. The problem […]
