Former ‘Idol’ Contestant to Sing About College on High School Tour

During the eighth season of “American Idol, ” Janelle Bechdol survived the early rounds of auditions and heard the panel of judges say the words that every contestant longs to hear: she was going to Hollywood. Viewers even caught a glimpse of her singing her favorite song, Sam Cooke’s “A Change Is Gonna Come.”

Though she was ultimately cut from the competition well before the final rounds, Ms. Bechdol, 25, has never lost her desire to perform, and to inspire. To that end, she is about to launch a concert tour she helped conceive — a musical revue of rap and hip hop called “Hall Pass” — that will make the rounds of high schools (and some middle schools), initially in New York but ultimately nationally. Its mission is to get students excited to go to college.

Steven Tyler, the Savior of ‘American Idol’

Oh, Steven Tyler, how could we all have doubted you? As soon as the news broke that the notoriously motormouthed Aerosmith stud was taking over the judges’ panel on American Idol, everyone smelled a disaster. His loose-cannon lips and zigzag brain on live TV? Unthinkable. Nobody had ever seen Tyler sit down before, much less try to concentrate on the same thing for three hours. He seemed destined to go down faster than he did the night he fell offstage in the middle of “Love in an Elevator.” Add Jennifer Lopez to the mix, years past her heyday, and Idol looked like a flop-sweat storm cloud ready to rain failure down upon us all.

Guest Blogger: Chris Jericho Reveals Pre-‘Dancing’ Jitters

Exclusive: Pro wrestler Chris Jericho guest blogs about what was going through his head as he took the stage for the very first time on ‘Dancing With the Stars’ last week.

I’ve performed in front of crowds of up to 70, 000 people for more than two decades, but last week I experienced a whole different animal. Something so foreign, so terrifying, so intimidating that, beforehand, I was as nervous as a 12-year-old girl meeting Justin Bieber for the first time.

Yes, kiddies, I was about to make my ballroom debut on ‘Dancing With the Stars’!
