Who Won American Idol? Season 11, Episode 40

It's finale night, ladies and gentleman! We kick things off with a particularly unexciting performance from the top 12 finalists (not including Jessica and Phillip). The only noteworthy moment occurred when Joshua attempted to do some sort of split thing, failed miserably, and clumsily toppled over himself. Super embarrassing.

American Idol: Phillip Takes Us Home, Jessica Changes Nothing Season 11, Episode 39

Well, we've made it folks. We have finally arrived at the final performance show. You've survived Seacrest's bad spray tans, Steven Tyler's creepy advances toward underage women and most importantly... lots and lots of filler. So here's you to, America! read more

American Idol: Who Will Go Head-to-Head for the Title? Season 11, Episode 38

I know what you're thinking: how ever will they stretch this evening into an hour? You're about to find out, America!

American Idol: It’s Been a Long Time Coming Season 11, Episode 36

If tonight's opening number "California Dreaming" is any indication how the rest of this hour will be... we might as well just check out now. The four finalists perform the song robotically, and that's not even the worst part. read more

American Idol: Joshua Takes J.Lo to Church; Farewell Hollie (Probably) Season 11, Episode 35

We've made it to the final four folks, and what a long, strange trip it's been. Tonight we'll take a stroll down memory lane as we recount the journey of each contestant. When that's over with, they'll sing a song about California, and follow it up with a song they wish they had written. It is at this point we realize the producers have simply run out of categories. Oh well.

American Idol: The Steven Van Zandt and Jimmy Iovine Variety Show Season 11, Episode 33

Everything has returned to normal on the Idol stage (including Ryan's skin color) and tonight, Steven Van Zandt of the E Street Band will be mentoring the finalists as they tackle British pop and the '60s, because Bruce Springsteen was on vacation/too busy/too rich/not interested in participating. 

Steven, so excited about the job, brought out his finest purple turban and matching blazer for the occasion. read more

American Idol: And Then There Were Five… Season 11, Episode 32

Queen was tired from last evening's festivities, so tonight, they had a group of young dudes help them perform their hit "Somebody to Love." The Queen impersonator band is apparently going on tour and calling themselves "The Queen Extravaganza," which works out quite well for the originals, since the royalties will come rolling in while they presumably do nothing.

American Idol: Phillip Phillips Finally Sang Dave Matthews Season 11, Episode 31

Things are feeling a bit off-kilter tonight on American Idol. For starters, no Colton Dixon in memoriam! Apparently they nixed the Colton montage in favor of a little band by the name of Queen. I guess they're more deserving. But what's even stranger about this evening is the fact that Seacrest looks like he just came back from a crack-fueled bender in Tijuana. read more

Premise: The smash reality series showcases wannabe pop stars competing for a record deal by crooning for a panel of judges, including, most entertainingly, the acid-tongued Simon Cowell, who departed the show in 2010 after serving for nine seasons. The judges review a performer's talent (or lack thereof), and at-home viewers then vote for their favorite potential star. The show helped launch the careers of such artists as Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Hudson and Adam Lambert.
