'American Idol': Ben Briley on Covering Elton John, Being Thrown Under the Bus and More

After two girls left the competition in back to back weeks, Ben Briley became the first guy eliminated this season.

Also, was he surprised that the judges let America decide the final spot in the Top 30 between him and Neco Starr? Read on to find out.  Read More... //www.buddytv.com/articles/american-idol/american-idol-ben-briley-on-co-52972.aspx

Watch Harry Connick, Jr. Perform on American Idol 2014 — March 13, 2014

Dreams do come true, America! Tonight Harry Connick, Jr. took to the American Idol stage and gave us a real treat. It was a much-needed one too, this episode being an elimination show and all. Looking at that hunky mug three hours every week can blur our memories of what a talented act Harry actually is. But he sure gave us a good reminder tonight! Singing his brand new single, "One Fine Thing," Harry showed us exactly why he’s sitting on the judging panel this year and no, it’s not just... //feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/UGCz86bgcQY/2014-03-13-harry-connick-jr-performs-video

American Idol 2014: Who Went Home From the Top 11 — March 13, 2014

Tonight was tough and not just because American Idol upped and changed the time of the elimination show. Yeah, they gave us warning but that doesn’t mean we were mentally prepared for Idol to air at 9 p.m.  Read More... //feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/HDUL-kgSJU8/2014-03-13-who-went-home-top-11

'American Idol' XIII Top 11 results: Ben Briley, Majesty Rose or Sam Woolf, who went home?

Movie night was so good for "American Idol" XIII that it's a shame anybody has to go home -- and miss out on the tour -- but unfortunately, someone must be sent packing. At the top of the hour, host Ryan Seacrest teases that the elimination may surprise some. Ruh roh.He also reveals that as of last night, "Idol" has passed 6 billion votes since its inception, which is rather amazing. But let's get to some results. Who went home?The Bottom 3 is revealed to be Ben Briley, Majesty Rose and Sam Woolf, which is a bit of a surprise. We agree that Majesty and Sam were in the bottom but we're surprised America put them there. The eliminated contestant turns out to be Ben Briley, which also surprises us. We liked his vocal last night, but we can see why he didn't get the votes for it. The judges do not choose to use... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2014/03/american-idol-xiii-top-11-results-ben-briley-majesty-rose-or-sam-woolf-who-went-home.html

American Idol 2014: Who Are the Top 10 of Season 13?

It’s hard to believe that American Idol started almost two months ago, but somehow we’ve found ourselves watching the remaining contestants fight for a stop in the coveted Top 10! (Oh, how time flies!) While each week makes it harder and harder to stay goodbye, this is a particularly special round in the competition. The 10 competitors who make it through to the next week of the competition also happen to be the 10 performers that we’ll see on the American Idol tour this summer! So who went... //feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/UnIg164Mr7I/2014-03-13-top-10-season-13

'American Idol' Top 11 Predictions: Which Singer Won't Be Going on Tour?

The Top 11 contestants sang Songs from the Cinema on Wednesday night's American Idol . And after the mediocrity that poured out of last week's performance show, us fans were ready for these singers to step it up and prove that they deserve to be here. There's always going to be some that are average, but a few of them were stand-outs and delivered some performances that I'm still thinking about this morning.   Read More... //www.buddytv.com/articles/american-idol/american-idol-top-11-predictio-52911.aspx

American Idol 2014: Who Should Go Home From the Top 11 — March 13, 2014?

We’ve been making predictions about who goes home on American Idol for a few seasons now, and most weeks it’s fairly difficult to make a guess. This week, however, the Ben Briley writing seems to be on the wall. Sorry, Ben! The normally country-centric Ben slicked back his hair and possibly raided Hugh Hefner’s closet for his performance of Elton John’s “Bennie and the Jets.” The song made a cameo during the lesser known rom-com 27 Dresses. (For those you that, like Ben, haven’t seen the... //feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/UrboAwB4w3o/2014-03-13-who-should-go-home-top-11
