American Idol producers decided to take matters into their own hands this week, using a save to secure the four finalists of the competition an additional week. In a surprising move it was announced during Thursday night’s results show that Angie Miller, Kree Harrison, Amber Holcomb and Angie Miller would be sticking around. Continue reading
American Idol’s Janelle Arthur is no longer a finalist in the Fox competition. Arthur was voted out of the competition last night after the singer’s Wednesday night performance just wasn’t enough to keep her in the race as the season comes to a close.
During Wednesday night’s show, Arthur took part in the Idol themed competition that had each of the ladies singing songs from the year of their birth. Arthur, who was born in 1989, chose to sing Vince Gill’s “When I Call Your Name,” with the country singer saying that the well known track always made her stop crying. Continue reading
The much talked about Jennifer Lopez, American Idol situation has exploded across the web. The big question – will JLo stay for another season of the singing competition or will she go? According to Lopez she just isn’t sure about what she plans to do when it comes to renewing her contract. “I just don’t know. I don’t know,” she told Ellen DeGeneres last week. Some are calling Lopez’s stall tactics just another way of earning her a bigger payout or could it be that she is just too busy launching her own reality show with boyfriend Casper Smart.

The final results for the winner of American Idol’s season 11 will air this week on May 23rd. Bovada Sportsbook is currently favoring Phillip Phillips for this year’s title at 4/13 on their American Idol Betting Odds. Jessica Sanchez comes in at 5/2.
After working for the last year on the series both singers are saying whatever happens, happens, when it comes down to the final numbers. “We’ve made it this far. Were still in the competition, and we’re still going to do our best. But whatever happens, happens,” Sanchez said of the finale. Phillips also agreed, “Yeah, whatever happens, happens. It’s not the end of the world. I’m not going to be depressed if I don’t win or anything. It’s all fun and games.” Continue reading
It’s the American Idol final this week, and it’s the first time I can say I don’t know who will be eliminated in a while. For the past few episodes, Hollie Cavanaugh bamboozled me by seeming to be the weakest singer left in the competition, and being the obvious choice to leave. She took shelter at the basement of American Idol Season 11 Betting Lines, only to survive elimination and live another day.
Every week I thought she would be gone, only to see favorites like Skylar Laine and Colton Dixon get the boot instead. Continue reading
American Idol judges were willing to do what voters weren’t on Thursday: keep Jessica Sanchez in the competition.
Despite being voted off the show by fans, Idol judges used their critical save on Sanchez keeping her in the show for at least another week.
The choice came a week after judges weren’t able to come to a consensus on DeAndre Brackensick and he was sent home. Continue reading
American Idol hopefuls Hollie Cavanagh and Elise Testone escaped by the skin of their teeth last week, avoiding elimination on Thursday night.
Jennifer Lopez’s mini crush DeAndre Brakensick was the sacraficial lamb despite having a more-consistent show althogether than Cavanah and Testone. Voters seem to be turning on Testone after a rough performance last week. Alas, she survived, but that did nothing for her (or Cavanagh’s) odds to win the entire show as both remain at the basement of American Idol Betting Odds. Continue reading
