Who’s the real villain of American Idol‘s tenth season: Jimmy Iovine, Nigel Lythgoe, the American teenager? On this week’s installment of Idoloonies, my cohosts (including a real live high-school student!) and I ponder this important question, and assess the last five vocalists remaining in the competition.
We also take a deep dive into these other vital topics: Why is Jimmy so hellbent on destroying Haley Reinhart’s Idol dreams? Was Haley justified dropping an expletive during Carole King Week results show? (Spoiler alert: Yes!) What bit of advice should Scotty McCreery completely ignore? Which former Idol contestant should Lauren Alaina try to emulate? Did James Durbin have an Idol Moment with “Will You Love Me Tomorrow”? And Jacob Lusk: Why?
To get our answers, press play below on all three parts of our latest episode (costarring characters from Deadwood, Citizen Kane, and yes, Buffy the Vampire Slayer). And for all my Idol news and ridiculata, follow me on Twitter @MichaelSlezakTV!
