If you've seen any of the commercials for "American Idol" Season 9, then you've undoubtedly heard The Undeserving, a band from Toledo, Ohio, whose uplifting song "Something To Hope For" is the soundtrack to this year's ad campaign. As it turns out, brothers Cl
Last year around this time, I had a feeling that "American Idol" was about to go through a Jason Mraz phase. I was half right. Kris Allen, Season 8's ultimate winner, shared several qualities with that under-the-radar pop star: he had an effervescent vocal sty
Copenhagen-bred post-rockers Efterklang (think Arcade Fire meets Kraftwerk, which sounds pretty groovy to us) have landed on our shores, and they've brought the sounds of their latest album, "Magic Chairs." Indie trio 60 Watt Kid and Finland's SISU round out t
Most of our "Idol" pundits called it correctly, but you didn't have to be an expert to figure out that Knoxville's Didi Benami was likely going home on Wednesday night. After a mediocre performance of the '60s soul classic "What Becomes of the Broken Hearted"

They may be British songwriters, but for three years running, Lennon-McCartney week, or "Beatles night" as it's loosely referred to, has become one of "American Idol's" most popular themes. And it's no wonder -- the songs outshine the singing time and time aga

For the second week in a row, we got to sit in on Monday's rehearsal and see a little of how the "American Idol" magic comes to life. Truth be told, it wasn't all that different from the first time -- not only because there are still nine contestants left, tha
In the black-and-white flashback to last night's show that kicked off tonight's elimination edition of "American Idol," Adam Lambert noted, with a snap, "If you want to win this competition, you've got to wake up." Despite Lambert's best efforts at boosting th
Wednesday night at the "Idol"-dome wasn't quite as manic as Tuesday's show, at least where Ryan Seacrest was concerned. On the other hand, Adam Lambert's performance did have the studio audience jumping out of their seats. All the off-camera action (and a few
As contestants go, few females in âAmerican Idolâ history were as bombastic as Carly Smithson. The Season 7 rocker, one of three in that yearâs Top 12 if you include David Cook and Michael Johns, brought all the grit she could muster into the competition
By sheer coincidence, season 7's Brooke White stopped by the L.A. Times video studio on the two-year anniversary of her own "American Idol" elimination! But this eternally bubbly Arizona native, who currently calls the San Fernando Valley home, isn't crying ov
Some can still hear the collective gasp echoing from the night Season 7's Michael Johns was eliminated. An eighth-place finish seemed downright unfair then, as it does now, but the Australian-born rocker took the early dismissal in stride, much like his view o
