#AmericanIdol Season 12 Top 10 Performs While Nicki Minaj Runs Late – Girls Rocked This Round #TVTIME101 (Video)

American Idol Nicki Late2

Last night on “American Idol”, we learned that Mariah Carey is not THE diva on the set of the show while Nicki Minaj fails to appear the live opening show on time.  She did appear eventually donning a black hoody and some strange sunglasses which she may of thought she was incognito.  Remember when you were late for class and you would slink in and pretend you were invisible?  That is what came to mind.

Here is the video recap with Ryan Seacrest.

Individual Performances Below:

American Idol Season 12 #IdolSuddenDeath P4 Results Top 20 Completed (Video) #TVTIME101

Posted by ImaJustSaying on March 1, 2013

Sudden Death Round 4

American Idol’s‘s list of the top 10 men is complete!

American Idol has been on the air for 12 seasons. From the early days of Kelly Clarkson, the judges continually hounded the contestants on song choice.  Simon Cowell (remember him?) would criticize contestants for being “cabaret,” “old-fashioned” and, worst of all, “boring.” Some of this season’s contestants have been watching Idol since they were in elementary school, which makes it all the more inexplicable that they still choose to sing songs like Peggy Lee’s “Fever,” which is 57 years old.

American Idol Season 12 Top 40 #IdolSuddenDeath P3 Winners And Losers (Video) #TVTIME101

Posted by ImaJustSaying on February 28, 2013

American Idol Zoanette Johnson

American Idol’s‘s list of the top 10 women is complete!

After the first week of sudden-death rounds, the judges gave their stamp of approval to five more female singers Wednesday night. And they sent five others home.

Here are the five contestants who are moving on in the competition:

Zoanette Johnson: The Tulsa resident, 20, was the first to be put through by the judges, who showered her with praise for singing a spirited version of “Circle of Life” from The Lion King. Keith Urban declared her “queen of the jungle.” Nicki Minaj told Zoanette, “You make me so emotional … You’re the person we’re going to remember tonight.”

 Aubrey Cleland: After singing a slowed-down version of Beyoncé’s “Sweet Dreams,” Mariah Carey told Cleland, 19, “You’re limitless.” Nicki and Randy Jackson pointed out her commercial appeal. “Lookin’ like a current artist, soundin’ like one, feelin’ like one,” said Nicki of the performance.

Candice Glover: Taking on Aretha Franklin’s “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman” paid off for the singer, 23, who earned a standing ovation from Keith. Randy said she was “one of my favorite singers in the whole competition.”

American Idol Season 12 Top 40 #IdolSuddenDeath P2 Winners And Losers (Video) #TVTIME101

Posted by ImaJustSaying on February 22, 2013

American Idol Sudden Death Round 2

On Wednesday, 10 women sang for five spots on American Idol‘s live shows. On Thursday, it was the remaining guys’ turn.

The judges have their own euphemisms when they don’t like a performance – it’s usually easy to read between the lines: If they compliment a singer on his shoes, he won’t advance. On Thursday, Nicki Minaj actually told a contestant, “Kudos to you for being really freshly, nicely groomed.” They might as well have had a stagehand pull him offstage with an oversized vaudeville hook.


After several weeks of good behavior by the judges, Thursday’s episode showed a spark of life when Nicki – who was wearing her very best Jan Brady wig – began rolling her eyes whenever Randy Jackson spoke. At one point, Ryan Seacrest even tried to get them to kiss and make up. There was talk about lipstick, and Mariah Carey did her best to look at anything other than the awkward air kiss that followed.

But the theatrics did not eclipse some solid singers – and a few performances that just weren’t good enough for the competition.

The Good:

Curtis Finch Jr. wowed judges with his version of Luther Vandross’s “Superstar.” It was oversung. But there was no denying Finch’s vocal talent.

Charlie Askew’s rendition of Elton John’s “Rocketman” was interesting and well-suited to his voice.

American Idol Season 12 Top 40 Goes To #SuddenDeath – Winners And Losers (Video) #TVTIME101

Posted by ImaJustSaying on February 21, 2013

Sudden Death Round 1

American Idol threw yet another new twist at its 40 remaining contestants: a sudden-death round.

Five women moved on, five went home.

“One song, one chance, no mercy,” Ryan Seacrest said as the first group of 10 female contestants gathered in Las Vegas to try to finally sing their way – in front of a boisterous studio audience – through to the “America votes” phase of the competition.

Kentucky high school junior Jenny Beth Willis, whose rendition of a Trisha Yearwood song earned mixed reviews from the judges, was the first up. Although Keith Urban appreciated her “effortless confidence,” Nicki Minaj said her performance lacked excitement (a comment that elicited the first audience boos of the season). Final result: It was the end of the road for Willis.

Tenna Torres, 28, – who attended Mariah Carey’s camp for kids as a youngster – took the stage next and impressed the judges with her take on the Natasha Bedingfield’s “Soulmate.” But she lost style points with Minaj, who didn’t like one particular aspect of her look. “Lose the hair,” said Minaj, who felt the contestant’s coif aged her. Final result: She made it through to the Top 20.

Kree Harrison Performs in Hollywood: Solo Round – Hollywood Week – AMERICAN IDOL SEASON 12 #TVTIME101

Posted by ImaJustSaying on February 15, 2013

Kree Harrison

Kree Harrison steps up to center stage for her chance to advance to the next round. Was her rendition of “Stars” by Grace Potter & The Nocturnals enough to send her through?  Of course.  She has a heart breaking background which American Idol loves.  And she sings passionately as well.

Angela Miller Performs in Hollywood: Solo Round – Hollywood Week – AMERICAN IDOL SEASON 12 My FAV! (So Far)

Posted by ImaJustSaying on February 15, 2013

Angela Miller solo week


Angela Miller knew performing her own song was a risk that she was willing to take. Did the gamble pay off enough to send her through to the next round?  I think she will certainly end up in the final 4 if she keeps this type of performances up.  This is incredibly beautiful.

Posted by ImaJustSaying on April 20, 2011

James Durbin blew the roof off the ‘American Idol‘ auditorium tonight with his amazing rendition of the Platinum-certified Muse song ‘Uprising.’

Everyone went crazy for Durbin’s performance, and Randy Jackson even told Durbin that Muse singer Matt Bellamy wrote saying he was going to challenge Durbin to a sing-off! Jackson continues, “I think I am going to go out on a limb and say this is probably gonna be the best performance of the night.” Jennifer Lopez agrees, saying she loved Durbin’s theatrics and high notes.

American Idol – Can We Say Spingles??

Posted by ImaJustSaying on May 18, 2010

For all you American Idol lova’s.. who watched last night???  Who became an instant fan of Lee DeWyze??

His first song was a  Lynyrd Skynyrd’s song “Simple Man” which was very strong and grabbed your attention.  The judges loved it and thought he was the “Idol Crusher” of the night!!  It was a fantastic performance.

I have been a complete Crystal Bowersox fan and thought she had this one in the bag.. but we got a new boy in town and is giving me spingles!!   He is incredibly humble and grateful for this opportunity and if we can have two winners.. I would be happy.

Lee then sang one my favorite songs “Hallelujah” which the Justin Timberlake version for the benefit of Haiti brought me to tears.  For some reason, this I find this song so inspirational and touching.. and brings you closer to your higher power regardless what it is.   There are quite a few versions but Justin’s was my favorite and now Lee gives us a whole new version and the goosebumps rises off my arms and put a choke hold on my throat!  OMG  what a freakin amazing version.  This lass will definitely be in the top 2 next week with who I am hoping is Crystal.   If I am wrong, then I am leaping into the depths of despair and disapointment.   I will eat 2 containers of Peach Sorbet Haagendaz and a bag of Kettle cooked chips while wiping my tears  of sadness.

How funny was watching Lee get the news of the “Judge Picked Song”  for him FROM SIMON!?!?  In case you didnt know.. this was a Judge’s Pick week.  Oh!! and you could tell Lee was not a happy camper from the song choice?  You can say what you want.. but this show is famous for a reason.  Simon really knows what he is doing and he totally made Lee look like a star with this song choice.  I just wish he can pick songs for all the contestants so we can see better performances..  I just sayin!!

Who watched last week with Lee and Crystals Duet??  OMG!!  It was fantastic and the energy they gave each other was divine to watch.  When two artists perform together and they give you the illusion that they are in love and doing the under the blanket dance, they are true artists in my mind.  Ok my porno mind..  Hey!!!  Don’t judge me!!

Below are performances that I just watch over and over again and still get spingles.
