LaKisha Kisses Simon and Says: "I'd Do It Again!"

LaKisha Jones says that starting out so strongly on American Idol and being dubbed an early favorite proved to be a difficult cross to bear. Coming off that roof-raising first Hollywood performance, "Everybody wanted that 'And I'm Telling You' moment every week, but when you're singing different genres every week, those styles don’t necessarily have that 'big song,'" she told during a Thursday conference call. As such, she said, "I went out there every week and gave it my all."And while she may not have earned America's vote, LaKisha told us that after Wednesday's results show, she got the thumbs-up from the one who matters most: her 4-year-old daughter. "Oh, my gosh... I was crying last night and she wiped my face and said, 'Mommy, I'm not mad,' which I thought was really cute. It was as if she was telling me, 'I'm proud of you, I'm not mad' — and that works for me."What else worked for her? That surprise peck from mean ol' Simon Cowell himself. "He is a good... read more

May 9, 2007: "And Then There Were Three..."

Thanks to a little bit of magic known as the TV webcast, and a tall guy going by "JK", I was able to watch Idol in L.A. at the N.Y. time, while the show was being taped live back in L.A. (Crazy, I know!) So, I’ve got the goods for you tonight earlier rather than later. See, I’ve got a gig to get to, so on with the show. After sitting through an hour of just about nothing — seriously, we’re winding down here and there’s only so much filler a girl can take — here’s all you really need to know. (Besides, if you watched the show, you really don’t want me to recap all that. And if you didn’t watch the show, you’ll thank me for not having to live through every stretched-out moment.)Barry Gibb sang live; his voice was as falsetto-y as ever. Pink sang, though not live, and she was pretty good. She’s grown on me since I saw her last year at the TV Guide Emmy party. She pretty much brought the house down there, and I had only really known... read more

May 8, 2007: Bringing Back the High-waisted Pant

Those were the good old days. Probably long before most of you were born. But I remember them well. And I remember The Brothers Gibb, aka the Bee Gees, and Saturday Night Fever. Skinny guys in high-waisted white pants with matching jackets. It’s time to bring them back!Barry Gibb, who has possibly the highest voice I have ever heard on a grown man, was happy to have the four remaining Idols sing not just four, but eight of his songs. Eight songs, you say? Whoa, boy….I’m lining them up two-by-two, praying for an early night.Melinda kicked off the show declaring, “Love You Inside and Out” and she reminded me of Gloria Gaynor (that’s a huge compliment)! I’ve got no issue with Melinda’s version of the song. You know how I love this gal. Randy said it was a “solid performance.” Paula said, “It’s hard to critique you,” which isn’t saying much. Simon said, “I expect incredible tonight,” and it was “more of... read more

Idol Chat Takes on Your Favorite, Blake's "Love" and More!

Just how awesome were Melinda and Blake last week? Who of the two eliminations was the bigger surprise? And who has reason to worry going into "Boogie Week"? We asked Kimberly Caldwell and Rosanna Tavarez, the hosts of TV Guide Channel's Idol Chat, Idol Tonight and Reality Chat, for their takes on these topics and more. How awesome was Blake's "You Give Love a Bad Name"?Kimberly Caldwell: Oh my god, I think it was one of the best performances ever – ever – on Idol.Rosanna Tavarez: I really liked it! If read more

May 2, 2007: Double the Pleasure? Not.

Well I'll have a lot more for you later, but suffice it to say, I picked the two to go home this week in my last blog. And though I was right, I don't feel very good about it. Phil Stacey and Chris Richardson were voted off after a combined two-week total of 135 million votes — that's an insane number!You know how I feel about Chris, so it was really hard to see him go, and Phil had actually been performing a lot better over the last few weeks. There's no joy in being right tonight. As we get down to the wire it gets harder and harder to be happy about who’s going home. Oh sure, back in the days when we were ready to jump off a bridge if America kept Sundance around for another week it was all fun and games, but that’s all changed with this week. I trust you all watched in horror as Ryan and Simon had their weekly tiff — this time about puppets. If I had kids, I’m really not sure I would let them watch this show. It’s very randy. (Not randy as in Jackso... read more
