Week Three of American Idol‘s tenth season was about as appealing as a Heidi Montag opera album. The Los Angeles audition telecast, in particular, failed to yield a single Top 20-level contestant, and the Austin, TX tryouts were only marginally better. On our latest episode of Idoloonies, I gather a panel of hardcore Idol fans — including season 8 finalist Alexis Grace — to discuss some potential format changes that could help freshen the show’s early rounds. We also discuss the best (Casey Abrams) and worst (Hollie Cavanagh) Golden Ticket recipients, the pros and cons of executive producer Nigel Lythgoe’s Twitter feeds, and the show’s renewed effort to cram its early favorites just a little further down our throats. All that, plus individual references to both Miley and Noah Cyrus, and the latest on Alexis’ post-Idol fortunes. How can you not press play and watch our latest episode below!
