It was "rock week" on "American Idol" as the top 7 took on rock 'n' roll classics, with varying results. It also happened to be injury week, with top talents Kree Harrison and Candice Glover singing through their pain. Harrison had a pinched nerve...
Poor Devin Velez. He didn't deserve to get kicked off "American Idol" just yet – certainly not before that cheesy amateur Lazaro Arbos -- but that's what the "Idol" voters did Thursday night. And the judges, who can't use their one save of the...

The "American Idol" top 8 tackled the music of Detroit on Wednesday. That turned out to mean mostly Motown, but also, incongruously, a song by Madonna -- "Michigan's own Material Girl," Ryan Seacrest reminded us – and a countrified version of it...
The "American Idol" voters finally had enough of Paul Jolley. No sooner had Jolley been informed that a town in Tennessee had named a day (last Saturday, March 16 -- so I guess he missed it?) after him, than he got word he'd landed in the bottom three. He...
The nine remaining "American Idol" contestants tackled the music of the Beatles Wednesday night, despite the fact that -- honestly, what is the world coming to? -- some of them had never heard the songs they'd sung before. That's right. Burnell Taylor...

If "American Idol" doesn't crown a female winner this year, it'll be a full-on crime. The women in the running are just so much better than the men. That couldn't have been clearer on Wednesday night, when the top 10 paid homage to past "Idol" winners...
If anyone had lingering doubts that the male contenders on "American Idol" this season pale in comparison to the women, this week should put them to rest. On Tuesday night, after the top 10 women performed, it seemed like all but two of them would...
Fine work, "American Idol" voters. You picked a pretty much perfect top 10 (which is to say a perfect top 5 women, and a perfectly fine top 5 men). "Idol" producers? You did well too -- giving us an hour-and-a-half results show devoid of fluff and tease...
Usually when reality competition show judges start cranking out the cliches about how a given night of the season is the best ever, filled with so much amazing talent they can't imagine how the voters at home will decide, it's worthy of a smirk and eye...

The "American Idol" voting will begin next week; we'll indulge in two full nights of live performances (Tuesday and Wednesday) and a third (Thursday) in which the 20 semifinalists will be slashed to 10 finalists. For me, the audience input can't come soon...

Another 10 contestants – the last of the women -- shrank to just five on the third night of the Sudden Death rounds in Las Vegas. Surveying the landscape, you can't fault the judges for failing to embrace eclecticism. They gave us …...
