Competition Close as Final 2 Sing for Idol Title

It’s the last competition night of American Idol’s eighth season and the competition couldn’t be closer as the Final 2 take on three songs in their quest for the Idol title.

Emotion Idol Results Show Sets Up a ‘Ding Dong’ Finale

A close race and visits home make the Top 3 American Idol results show a very emotional one. And with only a million votes separating the Final 2, you can bet that next week’s finale will be an exciting one.

Idol’s Top 3 Pick Better Songs Than Judges, But Who Sang the Best?

American Idol is down to its Top 3 and for its 300th episode each of the guys had to sing two songs – a choice of their own and one chosen by one of the judges. Hands down, the guys picked better songs than the judges. But between the guys, the competition is going to be close.

Idol Results: Danny Screeches to Safety

After Tuesday’s train wreck performance, I thought for sure that tonight’s American Idol results show would be the end of the line for Danny Gokey. But apparently Danny’s got some unbelievable luck or some devoted (although deaf) fans.

Adam in the Bottom 3 of Idol This Week

Last week, history was made when the American Idol judges used their save and sent no one home. But that means the fate of two are on the line this week.

Judges Use the Save, Idol Remains at 7

The American Idol judges finally did it. They pulled out the save card and they used it. The good news is that Matt Giraud is staying for another week. The bad news is two contestants get eliminated next week.

Adam Goes Wild with Cinema Hits on Idol

This week American Idol partnered with Quentin Tarantino to take on the songs of cinema, where in lies the problem. First let me say that I have no doubt in Quentin Tarantino’s movie making ability, but what qualifies him for as a musical mentor? Sure, he has experience picking songs, but how does that qualify him to coach others vocally? Is Idol that desperate for mentors?

Suspense High on Idol’s Top 8 Results Show

The suspense was high tonight on American Idol as the judges debated the use of their save in the final moments of the show. But a 2-2 stalemate was not enough to render the unanimous vote required by the save and Idol said goodbye to Scott MacIntyre.

Idol’s Top 8 Relive Music from their Birth Year
