I have a new gig this season! I’m writing recaps for AOL Television! Make sure to check out my recaps every Wednesday morning, after the Performance show airs. (Wednesday and Thursday morning during the semi-final rounds).
In an attempt to tweak the formula this season (gotta keep it fresh!) ‘American Idol’ producers decided to reveal 7 of the Top 24 on Tuesday night’s Hollywood episode. The show had its moments, but there was way too much going on. By the time the rooms were decided, I wasn’t really up for another hour of reveals. It made for some super-slow TV. I much preferred Wednesday’s fast-paced show, with one reveal coming right after another.
There were a few disappointments: When Ellen DeGeneres recently said in an interview that she wished she’d fought harder for some contestants, I wonder if she meant part-time preacher, Tasha Leighton, who did incredible things with Coldplay’s ‘The Scientist, ‘ or Jermaine Purifory, whose funky ‘Brickhouse’ was made of win.
