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 […]

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 […]
