I confess that I don’t usually watch American Idol until the top 12, because the artists just don’t start getting really good until then. Last night was an exception. Watch the video below
American Idol usually has the girls perform on Tuesday evening. They had to make a switch because Crystal Bowersox was hospitalized for complications from diabetes. I hope she is fine for tomorrow’s performance. See her performance from last week below.
I am a tough critic when it comes to American Idol. I only really liked one performance last night. Here it is:
Many of the contestants on American Idol are forgettable, and I thought Jason Castro was one of them. I was wrong. He just released a song that I absolutely love! Though the tempo may not fit everyone’s taste, it is getting great reviews.
Remember Fantasia from American Idol? She has officially returned to her role in the stage adaptation of Oprah’s The Color Purple, and she is getting great reviews. If you did not see her the first time around, you would not be the only one. Fantasia missed over 50 shows when she first starred in the show, which she attributed to tumors on her vocal chords. She also may or may not have stated that she did not feel badly about her absences, as she “made a truck load of money for [the] show.” Watch below to see her squirm on Oprah’s couch while discussing the situation. I am not sure why she was hired to reprise her role given her history, but she is predictably at it again.
