After tanking her first two big TV performances, the best thing Lana Del Rey can do right now is take some time to work on her album and become a better singer. So of course what she’s actually doing is performing on American Idol this week. This is getting embarrassing. More

Amy Brumfield, the girl with a great voice who lives in a tent, revealed back in December 2011 that she was eliminated from American Idol. More
Last night’s season premiere of American Idol brought legions of hopefuls out to Savannah, Georgia to try their skill in front of the judges. Because there were so many auditions, I’ve condensed my thoughts into the ancient, pithy, Japanese form known as haiku. How efficient is that? More
As different reports tell it, Adam Lambert was either in a fistfight with boyfriend Sauli Koskinen, or helping Sauli fight one of his Big Brother Finland castmates’ girlfriends. Either way, the former American Idol star got arrested in Helsinki. More

Look at this photo. Now cover up the “Madame Tussauds” on the step and repeat banner (so far this is the worst Magic Eye ever – sorry). Can you tell that the figure in front of you is a wax Rihanna and not the actual Rihanna? More

Although I thought that the way American Idol fired judge Kara DioGuardi was kind of cold, I agreed with their choice to let her go – Kara was long-winded, annoying, and kept turning every critique into a story about herself.

Although the tenth season of American Idol produced another lackluster winner, the ratings for the show have remained strong. A lot of that has to do with the stunt casting of new judges Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez. However, J.Lo is playing coy about whether she’ll be back for season 11. It’s likely that she only signed a one-season contract, and the show isn’t above canning female judges after just a season or two (see also: Kara DioGuardi and Ellen DeGeneres). But I think there’s another reason J.Lo is claiming to be “on the fence” about coming back – money. More
Lost in the sea of red carpet outfits and preshow interviews last night was one really important piece of gossip: Twilight star Nikki Reed and American Idol alum Paul McDonald are engaged!

While talent-based competition shows are certainly nothing new (remember Star Search?), the massive success of Idol bled over into other TV shows and even movies. Call it the Idol effect. More
It’s not enough that Scotty McCreery just became the youngest American Idol winner ever – he took a “super secret” one day trip back to his high school in Garner, NC to take his AP exam in English. His music teacher, Meredith Clayton (you’ll remember that Meredith’s mom was Clay Aiken‘s high school music teacher) told the Raleigh News & Observer that “He is keeping on top of his school work, and he will graduate, and his mom said he will go to college.” More
