American Idol: What Ramiele Had to Say

Ramiele MalubayDiminutive contestant Ramiele Malubay displayed more than the usual elimination emotion, but this endearing contestant will be remembered for more than her tearful exit. What did Ramiele have to say about her exit, her future plans, and her relationships with fellow Idols?

First things first, Malubay will do the Idol tour this summer. But when that’s all over, Ramiele plans to work toward her own career goals (possibly going to the Philippines to sing) and says she will move in with another AI contestant when the whole dog-and-pony show is over.

In the Mold: What Does it Take to Win American Idol?

Season Seven Top 12

Kelly Clarkson. Fantasia Barrino. Taylor Hicks. Carrie Underwood. Ruben Studdard. Jordin Sparks. Put them together and it’s hard to find one common element - other than the fact that they can all sing. But here’s the thing - many of the contestants on can carry a tune. Winning the show takes a whole lot more than sensational singing. What does it take to win American Idol?

The hot button issue for this year’s crew of competitors is sexual orientation. The Internet community is alive with comments, videos, and hooplah regarding the sexual preference (real or imagined) of Season Seven’s best and brightest singing talents. As far as fans know, a homosexual has never won American Idol. Some say that one will never win on the show.

Anchors Aweigh for American Idol Contestant

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Music, Reality, FOX, American Idol, Gossip,

Danny NoriegaIt’s Tuesday, and time to look forward to another Beatles night on . But let’s not forget those who went before the Beatles story ever broke…or, at least let’s not forget one. Danny Noriega, who was surprisingly ousted just before making the Top 12, accepted the offer posed to him by . That’s right - maybe Danny’s singing the blues, but he’s doing it on a cruise. Shortly after Danny was booted from Idol, the former talk show host issued an invitation for him to join her on vacation with a guest, completely free of charge. At the time, I said he should jump at the chance. Happily, he did.

Rosie O’Donnell’s blog is alive with a video of Danny and his cousin coming aboard for fun in the sun and sea for one week with Rosie. How awesome does this trip sound? O’Donnell gushed to Noriega for a few moments, proclaiming her love, before the camera focused on others sharing the trip with them. He may not be on the Idol stage, but he’s on an awesome free trip with Rosie O’Donnell. Things could be a lot worse.

Rosie O’Donnell Reaches Out to Ousted American Idol Contestant

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

Danny NoriegaJust last Thursday, Danny Noriega (of the great voice and somewhat flamboyant effeminate charm) failed to gather enough votes to keep him on - the door to his TV singing career closed. But on Friday, Rosie O’Donnell opened a window.

In a video blog post created the day after Noriega’s elimination, the former talk show host invited him to join her (and several famous friends) on a cruise. The offer includes a free cruise for him and a friend, which leaves from San Diego this Saturday to sail toward Puerto Vallarta. She’s requested him to sing “Tainted Love” with Cyndi Lauper, who will be allegedly also be on board. O’Donnell called him “bold and brave and beautiful” and ended her entry by imploring him again to join her.

This is a great deal. Free cruise, and he gets to meet Rosie O and Cyndi Lauper. If I were in Danny’s shoes, I would take the trip in a minute. If I were Rosie, I would probably try to use my celebrity status to meet my favorite Idols. But, as I am neither of them, I shall simply report upon these developments as they unfold. So, Danny…you going to take her offer, or what?

American Idol: Top 12 Revealed

American Idol Top 12

’s Top 12 is a big milestone for the show. It marks the beginning of Ford commercials, brings contestants one step closer to the summer-long Idol tour, and usually symbolizes the cutting away of dead wood. But I’ll go ahead and say it - I’m not pleased with the way it all went down. Let’s re-cap.

The night kicked off with a fantastic performance from Season 6 runner-up , who saucily performed “How Many Words.” He shared a few comments with host Ryan Seacrest before he quickly departed, so that everyone could turn their attentions to twelve empty chairs lined up on the stage.

Digging Up the Dirt on More American Idols

We all knew someone from would eventually have their trash uncovered….but four different contestants?

Last week, Amanda Overmyer’s brush with the law was revealed.  This week, we have a foul-mouthed boy, a former male stripper and a girl who likes to take semi-racy photos with her friends.

First up - .  I’ve hated the pouty mouth singer from Day One.  (His attitude overrides any shred of talent he might have.)  Now there’s this video that has surfaced on MySpace.  It may have been intended as a joke, but I fail to see the humor in it.  (I do like making fun of him though.)

American Idol: Top 10 Guys Perform


It’s all about the 70’s this week on , and upon hearing this wonderful news I was instantly interested. There are many, many fabulous songs from this decade. Last week it was 60’s, now it’s 70’s…okay, I’m sensing a theme. This can only mean the 80’s are to follow, and if this is the case I must make a general plea: please, please, someone do a punk rock song. The 80’s! You can’t deny punk rock. That being said, we’ll get back to the Tuesday night performances. (Though I will say, here and now, that I’m thoroughly disappointed no one picked Elton John’s “Tiny Dancer” Tuesday).
