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...

Whether they're better than the guys or not -- and so far, on the whole, they do seem more talented -- the young women competing on this year's "American Idol" are all long shots for the win. After all, as we were reminded in the show's opening moments,...

"American Idol" trimmed itself down to a modest hour Thursday night for the first time this season to swing through Baton Rouge, La. -- the hometown, we were reminded, of the "dawg" himself, forever judge Randy Jackson. That meant that interspersed with...
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...
