'American Idol': Nick Boddington's 'Iris' gets him back in his sweet spot

Nick Boddington - Top 10 Boys - American Idol 12 by IdolxMuzicFor his "American Idol" Top 10 men performance, Nick Boddington got back behind the piano for "Iris" by the Goo Goo Dolls -- and it totally worked for him. We loved the small changes he made to the melody line and his tone and tenderness. "Perfect. What a perfect song for you. I love you playing the piano and singing ... there's a vulnerability about your tone. I feel it every time you sing," says Keith Urban. Mariah Carey adds, "I was happy to see you at the piano ... you really kicked in at the end. You really got to that place where you were strong, you were confident."What do you think, "Idol" fans? Is it enough to make Nick one of the Top 10 finalists?... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/03/american-idol-nick-boddingtons-iris-gets-him-back-in-his-sweet-spot.html

'American Idol' Top 10 men: The Charlie Askew experiment needs to end

So, after a pretty strong night from the ladies on "American Idol" Tuesday (March 5), we hope you've got some stiff drinks at hand to help you get through this gauntlet of awful. Sorry, do we sound bitter? It's because we are. Most of these guys have been atrocious so far.1. Elijah Liu, "Stay," RihannaInteresting song choice, but he definitely has the sweet tenor to pull it off. This is actually pretty nice. There are a few bum notes here and there, but he has such a pretty tone. It's not blowing our wig off, but it wasn't bad. We just wish he had done a little more with it. The song didn't really go anywhere. More oomph, more personality would've been good.Urban is right that the song suited his voice -- it really did. Nicki manages not to be too gross towards this young man, then comments on his marketability, which is totally right.... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/03/american-idol-top-10-men-the-charlie-askew-experiment-needs-to-end.html
