American Idol: Season 15, Finale, 4/7/16

April 8th, 2016 · Comments Off on American Idol: Season 15, Finale, 4/7/16

by Lyn Jensen Goodbye, American Idol “for now,” as Ryan Seacrest’s last sign-off ended (ad-libbed?). For the first time in fifteen years, there’s no next season, no next American Idol. There are likely to be reunions and retrospectives and maybe even a revival down the line, but it won’t be the same. This model’s off line. That said, Trent […]

American Idol: Season 15, Last Vote, 4/6/16

April 7th, 2016 · Comments Off on American Idol: Season 15, Last Vote, 4/6/16

by Lyn Jensen Since American Idol quit having results shows, the format changed so that the field is now reduced mid-program. Wednesday night the top three singers introduced their debut singles–should they win–and then Ryan Seacrest announced the final two: 1/1. Trent Harmon sings “Falling,” a cool jazz piece. 1/2. Dalton Rapattoni gets the girls screaming at his performance of “Strike […]

American Idol: Season 15, 4 Become 3, 3/31/16

April 1st, 2016 · Comments Off on American Idol: Season 15, 4 Become 3, 3/31/16

by Lyn Jensen Next week will be the last week of American Idol, but three shows are still on the schedule, so viewers will vote for the final two contestants after all. Thursday night the final four singers were trimmed to the final three, and next Wednesday the third-place finisher will be announced. After one last round […]

American Idol: Season 15, Final 5 to Final 4, 3/24/16

March 25th, 2016 · Comments Off on American Idol: Season 15, Final 5 to Final 4, 3/24/16

by Lyn Jensen Predictably, American Idol said goodbye to Sonika Vaid halfway through Thursday’s broadcast. That left La Porsha Renae, Tent Harmon, MacKenzie Bourg, and Dalton Rapattoni as the final season’s final four. The first half of the show was supposed to be rock night–but nobody rocked. The second half of the show featured Sia as celebrity guest advisor, and […]

American Idol: Season 15, Final Six Become Final Five, 3/17/16

March 18th, 2016 · Comments Off on American Idol: Season 15, Final Six Become Final Five, 3/17/16

by Lyn Jensen We now know who the next (and last) American Idol will be:  La Porsha Renae, Dalton Rapattoni, Trent Harmon, MacKenzie Bourg, or (least likely) Sonika Vaid. It’s probably the most talented and diverse field since Season 8 at least, and from here on, America votes. The judges used their final save last night to keep […]

American Idol: Season 15, Top 8 to Top 6, 3/10/16

March 11th, 2016 · Comments Off on American Idol: Season 15, Top 8 to Top 6, 3/10/16

by Lyn Jensen American Idol is getting down to its most promising talent, as Thursday night brought another double elimination and left us with a final six. The theme for the night was songs from past seasons. Five people were automatically put through to the next round, then judges J-Lo, Harry and Keith decided which […]

American Idol: Top 10 to Top 8, 3/3/16

March 7th, 2016 · Comments Off on American Idol: Top 10 to Top 8, 3/3/16

by Lyn Jensen American Idol is winding up its farewell season in much shorter time than normal–two cuts are being made every week, with the finale only five weeks away. The final field is off-balance–four guys, six gals. The winner gets a recording contract with Big Machine, and last Thursday started with the final ten and […]

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’ […]
