Idol goes country tonight

This is Grand Ole Opry week on “American Idol,” which means “Idol” can showcase its biggest success story: Carrie Underwood.

Jasmine Murray and Jorge Nunez were the first casualties from this year's American Idol finals.

The Top 13 of American Idol took to the stage and vied for America’s votes tonight singing songs made famous by Michael Jackson.

In 2001, Simon Cowell figured a singing contest snapped up by British TV would be an easy sell in America. Instead, network responses ranged from lukewarm to hostile.

Tonight’s show started with a glimpse of a producers desire to be current.

Song choice will make or break third round of 12

If this week runs true to the first two rounds of 12 on “American Idol,” the competition will conclude with two decent singers and one with some potential and some flaws.

Yes, I am a little surprised by the results tonight.

Coming into tonight, there were only a few contestants I really remembered from the audition and Hollywood Rounds.

No surprise Alexis Grace was the top female last week.

So the first finalists officially named are Alexis Grace, Michael Sarver, and Danny Gokey.

Overall, I am extremely impressed with this group of talent.

Plenty of obnoxious characters in ‘Idol’s’ final

I admit that I haven’t been keeping up with “American Idol” as much this year.

We are only one episode away from the live performances.

I can almost feel the fingers across America stretching for the voting marathon.
