American Idol 10: Top 24 Revealed

Jennifer Lopez put production to a stop following the elimination of Chris Medina from this year’s American Idol competition. It was her fate to give him the bad news, and that’s when the downward spiral began. Fellow judges Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson tried to calm her down, Jackson turning to the staff to ask for “five.”

American Idol 10: Group Performances Redux

American Idol 10 - Hollywood

All 61 remaining American Idol contestants were taken from Los Angeles to Las Vegas to sing a second round of group performances on Wednesday's episode. The show gave them 24 hours to learn how to perform Beatles songs... which, frankly, they ought to know how to do anyway on general principle.

More than half of them would be sent home with broken hearts before the epside was over. At last, some of the Top 24 list has been revealed -- but did the judges make all the right decisions?

American Idol 10: Hollywood Week Solo Performances

American Idol 10 - Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler, Randy Jackson

The first round of American Idol’s Hollywood cuts are over, Group Night has come to a close and on Thursday’s episode it was up to all of them to deliver solo performances for the new judging panel. The judges were tasked with making deep cuts at the end of the day, whittling the remaining 100 contestants down to 50. After much rumors and speculation, most are reporting that eventually (we won’t dare guess when), Idol will give us a Top 24 ...

... some time after all this Hollywood business is over, that is. But first, the solo singing.

American Idol 10: Group Night

American Idol 10 Group Night

American Idol sent more than 150 Hollywood Week contestants home last week -- but it was only a preview. Group night has always been exceptionally intense on contestants. Would this year’s extremely packed Hollywood crowd bring even more drama than usual?

Wasn’t that the plan all along?

After two days in Hollywood, 168 were still in the competition. With a single night to prepare, contestants had to find a group and learn a song before performing before the judges the following day. And if that wasn't enough, the contestants were about to have all their carefully-made plans completely wrecked.

American Idol 10: Hollywood, Round 1

 


Ryan Seacrest
promised that this year’s Hollywood Week will be twice as hard . . . because this year, American Idol has double the usual amount of contestants. It felt more like triple the amount through the long audition rounds, but it’s finally time to start whittling them down.

Maybe the new panel will begin to develop its killer instinct as the week progresses.

X Factor to Offer Multi-Million Dollar Prize

Simon Cowell The X Factor

The X Factor has found yet another way to trump American Idol. The reality show already has Simon Cowell, and now it’s got the much better deal for would-be singers. The show will reward the winner of its singing competition with a $5 million recording contract through Sony. The staggering amount will be the largest sum ever rewarded through TV.

The US version of The X Factor is scheduled to premiere in September, and Simon Cowell will definitely be on the panel when auditions begin in New York. Unlike Idol, The X Factor accepts group performers and recognizes practically no age limitations.

American Idol 10: Los Angeles Auditions

Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson

American Idol opened with a recap of the singers we’ve seen so far this season, hyping them as “some of the best talent” the show has seen. After a decade, they still can’t come up with a new line. The city on Thursday’s episode was Los Angeles, and Randy Jackson wore his gold shoes to celebrate.

The online auditioners were sent to Los Angeles this year as well. As we reported, the show teamed with MySpace (because that’s not old and tired at all) to become more accessible than ever. Did it make a bit of difference?

Not with the first audition. The show started off on a rough note, with Steven Tyler predicting the first singer would go to Siberia.

American Idol 10: Austin Auditions

American Idol 10 Austin Auditions


Can a ten-year-old show still hold some surprises? American Idol unpredictably began on Tuesday night without much fanfare -- just a black screen with white text. “American Idol would like to apologize for last week’s outrageous behavior by Steven Tyler.” The next screen read, “Mr. Tyler has been warned and assures us it will never happen again.”

This inevitably led into a clip of Steven Tyler acting “outrageous” in the audition room. Tyler has been the talk of the series, though that’s because there’s been very little to latch onto thus far. If Idol wanted to issue a serious apology, it would be for sending so many lackluster singers onto Hollywood (which is rumored to stretch to a mind-numbing 4 episodes this year).

Fewer than 10,000 showed up for the auditions in Austin, Texas, the state’s capital. Tyler arrived to the auditions in a horse and buggy, while his less flashy panel-mates pulled up in chauffeured cars. Mark Anthony, J-Lo’s hubby, was also in town -- evidently to hang around the Idol audition room. Eventually, they even got around to listening to some singers.

American Idol 10: Spoiling the Top 40

Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler, Ryan Seacrest, Randy Jackson - American Idol 10

The tenth season of American Idol begins this week … but if you like, you can skip all the auditions and go straight to the Top 40 judges’ picks.

Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, Kara DioGuardi and Ellen DeGeneres are history as far as the show is concerned, but our favorite anti-Idol site is still hard at work spoiling the series for the rest of us.
