American Idol: Did the Contestants Sabotage Each Other on Competitors' Pick Night?

American Idol

It's Competitors' Pick Night on American Idol, where the Top 7 finalists get to pick songs for their competitors, and each singer gets to choose one of six options. Did anyone go the sabotage route, or was everyone altruistic?

The show finally finds something for Randy Jackson to do, as he introduces the theme of the night and interviews each singer about what they would select for their counterparts. (Everyone seems to be playing nice, for the record.)

American Idol's Malaya Watson explains why she almost didn't audition

So, what did the finalists ultimately decide on? Let's get to the performances:

American Idol Results: Will Sam Stay Another Week?

Sam Woolf

The judges may have used their save on Sam last week, but this week, one person actually did go home. Was Sam able to redeem himself with his take on "Time After Time"? Or were his efforts to connect with his fans all for naught? read more

American Idol: Livin' in the '80s

CJ Harris

American Idol went back to the '80s Wednesday night, with the Top 8 finalists performing song selections from music's most fluorescent decade — despite the fact that none of the contestants were alive in the 1980s. (Think about that for a second. Feel old yet?) They get help from a nearly unrecognizable David Cook, who returns to the Idol stage this week to act as a mentor.

We get our first elimination of the night fairly early, when judge Keith Urban opts to ditch his bitchin' mullet ("sixty thousand dollars' worth of hair extensions," quips his co-panelist Harry Connick, Jr.) within the first five minutes of the show.

With the judges having used their only save on Sam Woolf last week, someone will definitely be going home on Thursday night. So, how did the Top 8 do? Let's get to the performances: read more

American Idol's Top 8 Go "Back to the Start": Who Will Finish on Top?

American Idol Top 8

American Idol went "Back to the Start" Wednesday, tasking the Top 8 finalists with performing the song that they auditioned with — as well as pairing them up to perform duets. (Eesh, hold on to your hats.)

Let's follow Ryan Seacrest's lead and get right into the songs!

American Idol: Did the Judges Use Their Save?

Caleb Johnson

It's finally here! At long last, the programming gods have bestowed a 30-minute Thursday results show on American Idol viewers.

The result? While thankfully brief, the truncated episode felt, dare we say, a little rushed? Ryan Seacrest switches things up a bit this week, and within the first 10 minutes reveals which contestants are safe via the big screen. And the results are:

American Idol's Top 9 Sings with the Band

American Idol XIII

This week the Top 9 sang with the band on stage with them (as opposed to just near them?) in hopes that the energy will help their (thus far) tepid performances. read more

MK Nobilette on Being First Openly Gay Idol Finalist: "I Never Intended It to Be a Big Deal"

MK Nobillette

Before the live shows even began on American IdolMK Nobilette had already made headlines for being the show's first openly gay contestant to make it past the early rounds.

"I'm very obviously gay," Nobilette told judges Keith UrbanJennifer Lopez and Harry Connick, Jr., shortly before she was ushered into the Top 30. And with those words, the frequent "are-they-or-aren't-they" aura that has pervaded Idol for 13 seasons, from Clay Aiken to Adam Lambert, was... if not shattered, at least dented a little.

American Idol: J.Lo Performs "I Luh You Papi" and Another Singer Goes Home

Majesty Rose

On Thursday's American Idol results show, the Top 10 became nine, but more importantly, judge Jennifer Lopez took off her judge's hat (and other things) to perform her new single, "I Luh Ya Papi." read more

American Idol: The Top 10 Sing Modern Hits

American Idol

It was all Top 10 all the time on Wednesday's American Idol, with the 10 finalists performing Top 10 songs from 2011 or later (a.k.a. songs that will make viewers of a certain age feel very old if they are unfamiliar with them).

Throughout the course of the evening, selfies were taken, judges Harry Connick Jr. and Keith Urban did amazing impersonations of each other, and Malaya got her first bouquet of flowers (aww) from Ryan Seacrest and the Idol crew. But let's get to the performances:

American Idol: Is This the Most Boring Group of Contestants Ever?

Jessica Meuse, Caleb Johnson, MK Nobilette

Let me start by saying that all the contestants on Season 13 of American Idol seem like truly lovely people. And also that I'd rather watch the green paint dry on that house in True Detective than sit through another 11 weeks of performances from this crew.

And apparently, I'm not alone. Idol's ratings have (once again) been in steady decline this season and hit an all-time low a couple of weeks ago with the Feb. 20 episode. Granted, the show faced stiff competition early on this year from the Winter Olympics, but its post-Olympics numbers remain languid.

How the American Idol judges failed MK Nobilette

Of course, the numbers could just be... read more
