LaKisha lights up Palace
‘Idols Live!’ gives fans a lot to like

Time after time, the performers shouted the same thing to the audience during the “American Idols Live!” concert at the Palace of Auburn Hills on Sunday night.

And the message was: It’s good to be in LaKisha Jones territory…….

Sixth season ‘Idol’ tour not worth rerun

There’s a reason “American Idol” doesn’t air reruns for every season: The show’s often-shaky karaoke-style performances don’t necessarily hold up to repeated viewings.

Too bad, then, that Sunday’s “American Idol” live show at The Palace of Auburn Hills acted as an extended rerun of the show’s sixth season, generally thought of as one of the Fox juggernaut’s weaker outings. The season’s top 10 finalists — including winner Jordin Sparks, beatboxer Blake Lewis and Flint’s own LaKisha Jones — reprised the songs that made them famous earlier this year, even if those performances weren’t exactly memorable……

With personality and charm, Aiken holds own at Tennessee

Singer Clay Aiken opened his Sunday night concert at the Tennessee Theatre by tackling a local legend, and he held his own admirably.

Aiken displayed nerves of steel as he launched with Dolly Parton …Here You Come Again in front of about 1, 330 enthusiastic Aiken fans.

This ‘Idol’ is all clay feet


NEW YORK — There’s no point in going all Simon Cowell and spewing poison over “Idol: The Musical.”

The pathetic little off-off-Broadway musical that opened yesterday at the 45th Street Theatre will soon perish of its own wretchedness without any help from the critics. So why stomp upon a miserable newborn?

Based on a concept by producer Todd Ellis, who premiered the show earlier at the Syracuse Civic Theatre he runs in upstate New York, “Idol: The Musical” regards a group of high school misfits who worship Clay Aiken, the singer of “American Idol” fame…..
