Idoloonies: Saving Casey, Revising History, Praising J.Lo, and Seeking Contenders on Idol
Motown Week on Season 10 of American Idol was downright legendary. The judges saved Casey Abrams, while America saved Haley Reinhart. Stefano Langone took a tumble, while Idol history was rewritten before our very eyes. Hulk Hogan trashed his shirt, while Gordon Ramsay trashed his already flimsy reputation. Meanwhile, Naima Adedapo got her dance on, Scotty McCreery got his lean on, and somebody dropped to the ground and clutched Ryan Seacrest’s knees. My Idoloonies cohosts (one of ‘em all the way from Australia) and I discuss all of these dramatic moments, dish the season’s lack of a clear front-runner, give credit where credit is due (to Jennifer Lopez), and make a plan of action for Lauren Alaina. Plus, I’ve got an interview with Season 10′s No. 12 contestant, Karen Rodriguez. You will not believe the song she was hoping to cover if Nigel Lythgoe ever freed the contestants from the drudgery of Songs Written Before Your Parents Were Conceived Night themes.
