American Idol Recap: Anniversary And Homecoming


American Idol Jennifer Lopez Keith Urban Randy Jackson

Things are coming to a head on this week’s episode of American Idol. The finale is next week, so naturally, the contestants are pulling out all the stops at this point. To top it all off, Caleb Johnson, Alex Preston and Jenna Irene also had the added pressure of performing on the show’s 500th episode. No biggie.

Caleb Johnson
Despite his vocal issues, Caleb Johnson delivered a couple of showstopping performances.

To amp up the nostalgic spirit, the show kicked off with a montage of the greatest moments in Idol history. There was Kelly Clarkson, Clay Aken , the transformation of Clay Aiken, KEITH!, William Hung  Bikini Girl (?) and even a video of Simon Cowell that time he was spot on about Carrie Undewood’s record sales. Ah, the good old days.

And Then There Were Three - Who Got Voted Off "American Idol" This Week?


American Idol Randy Jackson

Well, it’s about that time again – time to announce the top three contestants on this year’s round of American Idol. Where did the time go? So from last night’s performances we know that Jena Irene is pretty much safe – when you make Jennifer Lopez so excited that she starts dropping F-bombs on camera, it’s a pretty safe bet that you aren’t going home (well, not permanently anyway). Beware of spoilers ahead.

Randy Jackson
Randy Jackson had the spotlight before the finalists were announced.

Before the final reveal, however, we got to hear some of Randy Jackson’s oh-so-valuable critique (we’re guessing the show just had too much time leftover). Despite the fact that Jackson’s praise was largely unnecessary, it was nice to hear him being so unusually nice to the contestants, so we’ll let that slide.

There are no more second chances left for the remaining contestants on American Idol after the judges decided to use their save on Thursday night (3rd April). After strong performances on the previous show, it was certainly going to be an evening of drama and possible dissent amongst the judges.

Randy Jackson
Randy Jackson correctly predicted the five to gain the public's support and not enter the bottom three.

However, eight contestants are still remaining after the judges were unable to decide who should be eliminated when the bottom three - Malaya Watson, Sam Woolf and C.J. Harris - battled it out to remain in the competition.

Randy Jackson Thinks "American Idol" Is Out Of The Woods, Ratings Beg To Differ


American Idol Randy Jackson Jennifer Lopez Keith Urban Harry Connick Jr.

Randy Jackson thinks American Idol is regaining its form. Sure, the head mentor of the original TV singing competition has a vested interest in promoting the show regardless of its quality, but he really thinks it’s good again, honest. Jackson admitted in a conference call that by last season, Idol was getting a little bit stale. But it got a revamp and now everything is ok. Right…

Randy Jackson, Novak Djokovic Foundation Event
Jackson thinks the show got the much needed kick in the rear this season.

“But now it’s Idol 2.0,” he said. “It needed a refresh, and it got it.”
