Colton Dixon felt his past few ‘American Idol‘ performances lacked his patented rock element. He brought it back on tonight’s episode (April 18) where he was able to perform one modern song and one throwback.
When Joshua Ledet revealed that he would (bravely attempt to) sing Mariah Carey‘s version of ‘Without You’ on tonight’s (March 28) episode of ‘American Idol,’ season advisor Jimmy Iovine immediately stated that it’s one of the five hardest songs to sing in popular music. Yikes. Whatever the case, it was Ledet’s selection since the Idols were allowed to perform songs by their personal idols. So, did Ledet make a mistake with his choice?
On tonight’s episode (March 28) of ‘American Idol,’ the hopefuls were allowed to perform songs by their personal idols. Deandre Brackensick chose R&B singer Eric Benet’s sensitive tune ‘Sometimes I Cry.’ Benet, astute pop culture watchers will recall, is the ex-husband of Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry, who famously admitted to cheating on her. It was a tabloid scandal, so we hope Brackensick admires Benet’s professional life only.
Country gal Skylar Laine reminds us of Reba, but she idolizes Miranda Lambert and that’s whose song she chose to perform on tonight’s (March 28) episode of ‘American Idol.’ The hopefuls were allowed to sing songs by their own personal idols and Laine did Lambert proud with her crackling performance.
Katy Perry enlists in the Marines in her new video for ‘Part of Me,’ a song from ‘Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection’ (fans can preorder it here), where she celebrates her independence after a relationship gone bad. Here, we get Perry in warpaint, camouflage fatigues, helmets and brandishing a gun.
Fans of ‘The Voice‘ will want to nab the new issue of PEOPLE on Friday, March 23, as the weekly mag will explore, or “go inside,” as the editors like to say, the bromance between coaches Adam Levine and Blake Shelton. The bromantics appear on the cover, which boasts the tag: “How polar opposites became close pals.”
Got plans on Saturday, March 24 at 5PM? Well now you do! Madonna will sit down for an exclusive interview with late night talk show host and comedian Jimmy Fallon, which will be livestreamed on the Material Girl’s Facebook page. We love how Madge is embracing the digital age. She’s so modern, ain’t she? She’s been sharing tour rehearsals via her page, not to mention images of her bruises from getting prepped and ready to take the show on the road.
On tonight’s (March 14) episode of ‘American Idol,’ the contestants were asked to perform songs from the year of their birth. That means the range of years was from 1983 through 1995. We know, we felt old, too. will.i.am returned as the mentor, dispensing quirky advice, telling one contestant to lay down when she sang to monitor her breath.
Jermaine Jones‘ dismissal from ‘American Idol‘ over outstanding arrest warrants was addressed on tonight’s episode (March 14.) It cleared up a lot of questions and hopefully squashes the rumors that the gentle giant is some sort of violent criminal, as press reports began to indicate when news of his ouster broke.
Deandre Brackensick sang ‘Endless Love’ on tonight’s episode of ‘American Idol‘ (March 14), which was a stylistic shift from his reggae turn last week. Looking spiffy in a white suit and his signature curls making a statement, Brackensick chose this song since a Mariah Carey-Luther Vandross version was released in 1994, the year he was born.
