Season 12 top 7: What about rock?

by bunny on April 3, 2013

Aired 4/3/13

With one of the un-rockiest top 7's ever, we could be in for an evening of awkward. Little kittens trying to roar like lions, maybe? We'll see. The idols are accompanied by Orianthi on guitar.

DUETS AND TRIOS

Angie and Lazaro
Crazy Little Thing Called Love by Queen
Next to Lazaro, Angie comes off like Joan Jett.

Burnell and Candice
The Letter by the Box Tops
Better than the previous duet, but it just seemed kind of shouty to me.

Janelle, Amber, and Kree
It's Still Rock and Roll To Me by Billy Joel
For me for you, Amber stood out as the star in this one.

CATTICISMS

Zinni:
• I expected Lazaro to be a train wreck with a Queen song but it actually wasn't too bad!
• Good to see Hollie!

Zoey:
• Evanescence was probably a good choice for Angie.
• One of those nights where in general, it got better as it went along.

Aired 3/27/13

Perpetually surprised Motown legend Smokey Robinson is on hand to guide our American Idol top 8, most or maybe all of whom had to look up Smokey on Wikipedia so as to be prepared to gush as if he'd always been their idol/inspiration.

CATTICISMS

Zinni:
• Don't judge angry, Nicki—don't judge angry. This is not about you.
• That Four Tops moment was a big steaming bowl of awkward.

Zoey:
• Lazaro's clock is winding down...tick...tock...tick...tock...
• I don't know what to think about the group numbers. They are just too much like the group round, although everyone looks better now. Why do they need to fill 2 hours?

Zinni: It's a UFO.
Zinni: Is that even a pin? Maybe he communicates with the mother ship that way.

With one American Idol results show under their nonexistent belts, Big Z has the edge over Little Z, having purr-dicted accurately last week that Curtis Finch, Jr., would be "scratched." Zoey hopes to tie it up tonight.

Season 12 top 9: Let it be Beatles night

by bunny on March 20, 2013

Aired 3/20/13

Historically, the Lennon-McCartney songbook night on American Idol has been a grab bag of both moving tributes (remember "Imagine" by David Archuleta?) and what can only be described as terrible-but-we've-just-gotta-watch-it-again train wrecks ("Eight Days a Week" by Kristy Lee Cook ring a bell?). Can the season 12 hopefuls show us more of the former and less of the latter? Let's find out.

Oh, wait, first we need to find out whether Charlie Askew or Aubrey Cleland won the spot on the summer tour. It's going to be...

Aubrey! Congrats!

CATTICISMS

Zinni:
• Points to Burnell for admitting that he didn't know the Beatles like he should.
• Paul is too forgettable; I forgot who he was halfway through his song.

Zoey:
• Poor Lazaro looks scared to death. He's sweet but I don't think he'll be with us much longer.
• Did Mariah fall asleep in the tanning booth?
• This is the first time in many years that I feel the judges are earning their pay. They're giving constructive criticism with honesty, and in most cases, with kindness.

What are your thoughts about Hollywood Week?

by bunny on February 13, 2013

So here we are, halfway through Hollywood Week in Season 12 of American Idol. The guys have been whittled down to 28, soon to be 20, and tonight the girls face the dreaded group sing and then more cuts tomorrow night. Producers have decided they are not doing the room by room elimination thing as they have for so many years.

Zinni has found the guys to be a rather motley crew. A black face veil? Really? Whose funeral?

Zoey is underwhelmed but hopeful that some true talent will shine through and less emphasis will be given to the angsty back stories.

So what do you think? How will the girls compare? How far will the Turbinator go? Will Nicki Minaj ever shut up?
