    Idol Rich: And the Winner Is...

    ​This is, essentially, a "closure" post. I think we all have to come terms with the fact that Fort Worth/Cool's Casey James was let go in favor of the inferior Lee DeWyze. Whether or not I think CJ should be the American Idol, I've blogged the finale because he and a couple of other North Texans w ... More >>

    Idol Rich: Fare the Well, Casey James

    That small-town charm, camera-ready look and actual musical skill--though a little jam-bandy--couldn't win Casey James the title of American Idol...or get him into the finale. Gotta say I would've traded Lee DeWyze for the CeeJer if only because both CJ and Crystal Bowersox incorporated their own ... More >>

    Idol Rich: C and C Don't Get Love Like Lee

    ​As the contest dwindles, it seems the contestants were hailing from more specific locations.Casey James wasn't so much from Fort Worth, or Cowtown, as some folks call it. No, he's was from teensy Cool, Texas. Looks like the producers acknowledged that viewers are more likely to tune in if they se ... More >>

    Idol Rich: The Final Four Get Foxxy and Pair Up

    ​Jamie Foxx. He's an Oscar winner and has sold his fair amount of R&B records. He's also been a mentor on American Idol before. Last season, he got all up in people's grills. And he did it again this one. Foxx Face! This time, though, he gave out T-shirts with big words on them: There was ... More >>

    Idol Rich: Blue-Eyed Prime Time with Sinatra and Harry Connick, Jr.

    ​The Idol competitors were challenged this week with the task of reinterpreting the classics of Frank Sinatra. Ol' Blue Eyes' daughters were even in the audience (no pressure, singers) and presented Sinatra fan Simon Cowell with a monogrammed FAS hankie. Awesomely cool. Made me really wish his shi ...

    Idol Rich: CJ Inexplicably a B3

    ​America gave up 33 million votes last night. I'm not sure who I would've swapped Big Mike for to keep him out of the Bottom Three, but I would've definitely put Aaron Kelly in there instead of Fort Worth's Casey James. The B3 announcement came relatively quickly in the show, after a Rascal F ...

    Idol Rich: The NTX2 Prove Not So Inspirational

    ​It's a big week in Idol World. Tonight marks the almost annual star-studded Idol Gives Back charity episode, and, no matter how hard-hearted you are, you have to admit that the show is an emotional, feel-good, do-good piece of prime-time. Celebs of every level will grace the stage and screen with ... More >>

    Idol Rich: The NTX Two Get Schooled By Miley Cyrus...Um, What?

    ​This week's theme was Billboard Number Ones. A valid theme for American Idol if there ever was one. Props to Lee Dewyze for kicking out the Box Tops jam "The Letter" even though, sadly, no one mentioned the recently late lead singer of said group, Alex Chilton. Not saying DeWyze did the song any ... More >>

    Idol Rich: The Texas Two Take On the Rolling Stones

    ​So, this was the week that American Idol transitioned away from the gender-defined 3-day broadcast schedule, or what I like to call "over saturation." The Top 12 also moved from the in-the-round set-up and performed on the "new" stage--which is basically just the stage you saw last year with all ... More >>

    Idol Rich: And Then There Were Two North Texans...

    ​WTF, America? Lilly Scott had the right sentiment when she was kicked off last night, as she wondered what America wanted to hear, and lamented the loss of strong talent from the competition (including herself).And I can't help but feel bad for talking up ol' Todrick Hall and Alex Lambert yesterd ...
