American Idol's Nicki Minaj: Love Her or Hate Her?

Anyone who tunes into American Idol regularly knows that this season sometimes feels like The Nicki Minaj Show. Among the new blood that's been injected into the judges panel this season, Minaj is hands down the most polarizing. Keith Urban is the surprisingly astute critic, Mariah Carey is the softie who finds something positive to say about even the most dismal performances, and Nicki is ... well, Nicki. She's unprofessional ( showing up late to a job that requires about five hours of her time every week), overdramatic ( threatening to walk off the show after Curtis Finch, Jr. was eliminated last week), and often inappropriate in her comments to the singers (too many examples to pick just one). She also may be the best thing that's happened to the contestants in years. http://www.tvguide.com/News/American-Idol-Nicki-Minaj-Love-Her-Or-Hate-Her-1062955.aspx?rss=breakingnews

Instead, we had a chance to talk to Curtis following his elimination.As he was throughout his time on the show, Curtis was charming and fun even in defeat.What did Mariah say to you after the elimination?Curtis: She was really just telling me to stay encouraged and to remain consistent and to remain 100 percent authentic, which I think I've been presenting myself to be to America this whole time. And so I feel like the job is done.How did you feel when Nicki threatened to walk off the show when you were eliminated?Curtis: That's mind-blowing to me! When she said it, I was like, "Whoa! Make your coins! Get your check." See, that will make me tune in, because I have really transitioned now from a contestant... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/03/american-idol-interview-eliminated-contestant-curtis-finch-jr-talks-about-leaving-the-competition.html

'American Idol' interviews: Meet the Top 5 guys (video)

After all of the auditions, Hollywood week and Las Vegas, we have finally made it to the top 10 contestants on "American Idol" Season 12. But who are these contestants? Other than young men and women with incredible singing voices, we don't know much about them.In order to change that, we have video interviews with each of the top 5 guys -- Burnell Taylor, Curtis Finch, Jr., Devin Velez, Lazaro Arbos and Paul Jolley.This first interview is with Burnell Taylor. In addition to his singing, Burnell talked about his rather impressive weight loss (it's all about exercise) since his original audition.Curtis Finch, Jr. is the subject of the next interview.

'American Idol' Season 12 Top 10 results: Who went home?

It's our first finalists results show, "American Idol" fans. Where we all sit through an hour's worth of filler for a tiny bit of news. Headlining tonight's filler are Phillip Phillips and Bon Jovi. It's weird to have a group we worshiped as a kid performing on an "Idol" results show. Is this what it feels like for an older generation watching The Who perform the Super Bowl halftime?Oh, and there's the sing-off tonight for the last spot on the tour. While we don't care so much about that, we are curious who the sixth man in was last week for each gender. After a needless recap of last night with Iovine's opinions interjected, we get some results. Devin Velez, Janelle Arthur and Candice Glover are made to stand, with Candice going to the Top 3. Uh, no kidding.Now the Top 10 have to perform "The Shine" from "The Croods." And arms in the air!... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/03/american-idol-season-12-top-10-results-curtis-finch-jr-janelle-arthur-or-devin-velez-who-went-home.html

'American Idol' tour sing-off: Charlie Askew or Aubrey Cleland?

"American Idol" did a Top 10 this year, which means the tour, which usually has 11 Idols on it, has room for one more. So, the show took the girl and guy who finished just outside the Top 10 last week had a sing-off. The male singer in the sing-off is Charlie Askew, who chooses to sing an original song called "Sky Blue Diamond." It's admittedly way better than the last couple performances he did. However, Aubrey Cleland sings "Out Here On My Own" and she pretty much mops the floor with him. But will it be enough? She's a very talented singer -- more talented than most of the men who made the Top 10, frankly. But the voters like cute guys. Will they put Charlie on the tour?Did you vote? Who for?... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/03/american-idol-tour-sing-off-charlie-askew-or-aubrey-cleland.html
