American Idol 10: Top 7 Theme Revealed

American Idol

American Idol’s Top 7 will put this week’s elimination behind them and move forward -- and next week’s theme will help them to do it.

The Idols will be crooning Songs from the 21st Century, so they’ve got about 11 years’ worth of music to pick from. The list includes Britney Spears, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Cee Lo... and lots of other artists Glee has already covered.

Get all the spoilers, gossip and recaps from the current season of the show -- read all our American Idol 10 posts.

American Idol: Top 8 Results

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Music, Prime Time, FOX, American Idol, Gossip, Video,

Mover than 53 million votes were recorded after American Idol’s Tuesday performance round, but one of the Top 8 failed to score a big enough share to survive the night.

Before any results were revealed, Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina again paired up to deliver a duet of “American Honey,” originally by Lady Antebellum. They sound wonderful together, and the number was perfect. They’ll be performing a lot of duets together over the summer, when they both go out on the Idol tour.

The week’s Ford music video followed, a rather fun combination of cars and zombies. Watch all this year’s music video at Albumista.

American Idol 10: Top 8 Perform

American Idol 10

Tuesday’s American Idol opened with a re-cap of Pia Toscano’s surprising elimination, which caused a Twitter flurry and upset the three judges last week. But this week, she’s gone -- for better or worse. And the Top 8 performers carried on without her, because Idol’s show must go on.

The show took time to pay tribute to J-Lo, who has just been named as People’s Most Beautiful Woman. Perhaps it’s appropriate that she be celebrated on the show -- it’s Movie Week on Idol. And that doesn’t meant show tunes… it means soundtracks.

American Idol Denies Fan’s Front Row Claims

As we reported, Ashley Kauffman came forward recently to talk about being moved from her front-row American Idol seat because she was deemed “too heavy.” She talks about her experience to ABC in the video above. Now, the show has responded -- and they’re denying her claims.

Manfred Westphal, spokesman for Fremantle Media (the company that produces Idol), says that Kauffman’s statements are “simply untrue.”

American Idol 10: Top 9 Results

American Idol’s Top 9 opened the Thursday results show with a mash-up of Joan Jett’s “I Love Rock n Roll” and Lynyrd Skynard's “Sweet Home Alabama,” not their best group number of the season. It did, however, fit the week’s theme: the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame.

The week’s Ford music video was next, a sleek production set to the strains of “Love Gun.” Watch all the music videos at Albumista.

Glenn Beck’s Fox News Show is Over

Glenn BeckBut… what will Jon Stewart talk about on weekday nights? Glenn Beck is leaving his popular Fox News show, putting an end to his controversial but extremely attention-getting run on the Glenn Beck Program.

Beck will still work with Fox News through his company Mercury Radio Arts. He joined Fox at the start of 2009 and immediately doubled ratings in his time slot (and gave left-wing pundits too much to talk about). But his energetic persona has managed to create a lot of controversy, too. He accused the President of the United States of racism and lost Fox News approximately 400 advertising agreements (the number of advertisers who refused to support Beck's program with their ads).

Fox News channel chairman and CEO Roger Ailes had very little to say on the topic. “Half of the headlines say he’s been canceled… the other half say he quit. We’re pretty happy with both of them.”

What the hell does that mean? We’ve no idea, but good luck trying to get a straight answer out of Fox News on any day of the week.

Mobbed! FOX Unveils Great Series Premiere

Mobbed

Following American Idol’s results show, FOX introduced us to Nikki and Justin. They are the first in what we hope is a long line of subjects to appear on Mobbed, the network’s newest reality series. It premiered on Thursday, and it’s sure to become one of the most enjoyable hours on TV.

Justin wanted to propose, but he didn’t want to do it in any ordinary sort of way. So, he talked to show host Howie Mandel about creating a dancing flash mob to back him up while he pops the question. Mandel’s enthusiasm won everyone over right away -- he grinned the entire time preparations were being made.

American Idol 10: Top 11 Perform… Again

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

The second Top 11 performance on American Idol began with an appropriate recap of last week’s shocking elimination, which culminated in the most dramatic judges’ save in show history. The save is now gone, and all 11 performers have been cut loose to stand on their own… if they can.

Ryan Seacrest spent some time speaking about last week’s “incredible moment” before introducing the singers for the evening and theme for the night. Elton John was the man of the evening, a rock icon who has rubbed elbows with royalty and inspired the likes of Lady Gaga, Madonna and others.
