'American Idol' Top 4 Predictions: Is Kree Harrison in Danger of Being Eliminated?

Last night's American Idol proved two things to us. One, that FOX really needs to shell out more money so the contestants can have a better song selection to choose from instead of being stuck with slow, boring songs from a million years ago. And two, that Kree Harrison, one of the frontrunners, is more in danger of elimination than ever before. Will she hit the bottom of the leaderboard, or is Amber heading home as we all believed going into this week? And will we finally have a non-elimination round? Let's run through how each of the Top 4 finalists did with their performances and how the results might play out. //www.buddytv.com/articles/american-idol/american-idol-top-4-prediction-49938.aspx

'American Idol' interview: Kree Harrison talks about her tough Top 4 night

The "American Idol" Top 4 performances didn't go too well for Kree Harrison. Although the judges couldn't find any faults in her actual singing, they spent a great deal of time talking (and occasionally yelling) about her song choices and stage presence. After the show, we talked to Kree and were happy to find her taking the rough night in stride.What was it like to receive so much criticism from the judges?Kree Harrison: I mean, constructive criticism is not a bad thing for me, because I'm not going to stay here and just be safe. I like challenges and to put a fire under my butt.If the constructive criticism is helpful, what will you take from what the judges told you tonight?Kree Harrison: What Keith said really stuck with me, because he has been rooting for me since the beginning, fighting for me actually. I mean every word that I sing and you ought... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/04/american-idol-interview-kree-harrison-talks-about-her-tough-top-4-night.html

'American Idol' Top 4 singers respond to Lazaro Arbos' comments

Shortly after his elimination from "American Idol" Season 12, Lazaro Arbos gave an interview in which he mentioned that one of his female co-competitors wasn't a great person to spend time with. The singers still in the competition for the Top 4 don't have a lot of time to keep up with this kind of news. But it's kind of hard to miss something like that.After their Top 4 performances, we asked Candice Glover, Amber Holcomb and Angie Miller what they thought about Lazaro's comments.What did Lazaro say exactly? In an interview with ABC News Radio, the eliminated singer said, "I'm not gonna say names and I don't wanna sound rude, but I think that one woman in particular is crazy and she wants to win! She thinks that we're in 'The Hunger Games' and she's fighting for her life."None of the girls knew the exact words or the context of Lazaro's comments and... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/04/american-idol-top-4-singers-respond-to-lazaro-arbos-comments.html

American Idol: Who Got Into a Shouting Match?

American Idol owes Candice Glover an apology. The judges' critique of Candice's second performance Wednesday was hijacked when a shouting match erupted between the panelists and Jimmy Iovine over Amber Holcomb — whom some are calling this season's pre-ordained winner. As Candice stood by awkwardly, waiting to hear the judges' thoughts on her performance, host Ryan Seacrest brought Iovine out from backstage to explain his comments that the judges "missed the point" of Amber's take on "MacArthur Park." //www.tvguide.com/News/American-Idol-Top-4-Jimmy-Iovine-Shouting-Match-1064565.aspx?rss=breakingnews

'American Idol': Is Fox's Cash Cow Having Its Worst Week Ever?

Fox's "American Idol" is having a really bad week. The network's big revenue generator is showing signs of distress.  "The falloff has really been the last two years," Brad Adgate of media-buying firm Horizon Media tells TheWrap.

'American Idol' Top 4: Angie Miller wins the night - so who's going home?

The themes this week on "American Idol" are contestants' choice and one-hit wonders, plus a couple duets thrown in for good measure. That's a lot of singin' -- let's get to it.1. Amber Holcomb, "The Power of Love," Celine DionWow. It's like Whitney singing Celine. The a capella opening is exquisite. She is just ... wow. It's not exactly current, but when you can sing, you can sing. That high note was perfection. Also, she looks amazing. Those big curls really suit her. The judges are over the moon about it -- Keith calls it an "amazingly perfect" song choice and Randy says she's the contestant who has grown the most over the competition. For sure.2. Candice Glover, "Find Your Love," DrakeInteresting song choice, but if she wants to be current R&B, then this is a good pick. It's nice to hear her put her diva-ness on it, but she could've pulled back just a... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/04/american-idol-top-4-angie-miller-wins-the-night---so-whos-going-home.html

'American Idol' Top 4: The judges make it clear they want Amber over Kree

We mere mortals can't always tell a "good" performance from a "great" performance on "American Idol." That's one explanation for the disconnect between the beautiful singing of Candice Glover and Kree Harrison and the judges' mostly negative reactions.Considering that Amber Holcomb and Angie Miller received positive reviews for what seemed to be only marginally better performances, another explanation may be the judges making it clear who they want in the finale.Honestly, unless I'm unexpectedly tone deaf, the second theory is the one I'm going with.Amber, Amber, Amber ...Just in case you've been retreating to a cave during every bit of judge commentary throughout "Idol" Season 12, the judges like Amber. They like her a lot and have been justifiably irritated that America doesn't seem to share the sentiment. Despite a whole bunch of consistently good performances, Amber has rarely seen voting numbers to match.The judges have been compensating for this in recent weeks with... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/04/american-idol-top-4-the-judges-make-it-clear-they-want-amber-over-kree.html
