    • SNL just blew the opening Charlie Sheen skit. Going to bed instead of watching this unfunny show. #winning 8 years ago
    • Best idea I've heard so far this week - have Charlie Sheen host next year's Oscars. Highest ratings ever! 8 years ago

American Idol Recap – Group Week

Fresh off a solid Hollywood round week last Thursday, Idol is back tonight for what might be my most favorite episode each season…the dreaded Group Week. Those unfamiliar, just think back to when you were in school and the teacher gave you a group assignment and made you pick your own groups. Sometimes you’re in a group where all of you gel and deliver an outstanding performance on the task at hand, and then other times, you’re stuck in an awkward mish-mash group with competing personalities, or people who don’t want to do any work and get all the credit, or someone that actually tries hard but is the obvious weak link on your team and you and the other members of your team secretly plot to have that person framed for murder and deported to Siberia. Not like I was ever a part of that…

Two hours tonight of drama, 168 contestants left from the first cuts of Hollywood Week, so let’s get right to it. Here’s my current Top 10 of those who I know made it thru from last week.

MY CURRENT TOP TEN (last week’s rankings in parenthesis)
1. Lauren Alaina (1)
2. Stefano Langone (2)
3. Rob Bolin (8)
4. Casey Abrams (3)
5. Chris Medina (5)
6. Robbie Rosen (6)
7. Jackie Wilson (4)
8. Thia Megia (NR)
9. Caleb Johnson (7)
10. Brett Loewenstern (9)

American Idol Recap – Hollywood Round

Remember all those contestants that yelled “I’m going to Hollywood” the past month? Yeah, me neither, but thankfully we’ll get a refresher tonight of all the yellow ticket winners and their quest to be mildly famous and then ultimately overshadowed by whoever wins $5,000,000 on X-Factor in the fall.

Looking back, here’s who I currently have ranked as the Top 15 best so far…
1. Lauren Alaina
2. Stefano Langone
3. Casey Abrams
4. Jackie Wilson
5. Chris Medina
6. Robbie Rosen
7. Caleb Johnson
8. Rob Bolin
9. Brett Loewenstern
10. Jordan Dorsey

Ok, stopping at 10, b/c it was struggle to remember who some of these people were.

Should be interesting to see how Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler handle having to be critical of those they already sent thru to this round.

8:01 – Ryan Seacrest lets us know that this is the BIGGEST Hollywood week ever, b/c they have twice as many contestants here than ever before.  Considering I just struggled to come up with a Top 10 of best performances so far, I’m a little worried that this could be a long hour.

American Idol Recap – New Orleans

Ah yes, that time of year where FOX over saturates us with as many American Idol episodes as they can possible cram on to our DVRs. This is actually the first season that they’re airing weekly on Thursdays. It doesn’t really change the fact that I’m still going to be an Idol addict and watch this show until I’m wearing adult diapers and need to be changed every hour or so.  And since I’m only 31 years old, I’ve probably got another 2-3 years until that all happens, so might as well as enjoy another hour of auditions tonight (and clean underpants).
