American Idol’s Top 12 … Do we have a season?

[singlepic id=188 w=320 h=240 float=left]

Thursday night we were revealed with this season’s Top 12 contestants to compete week after week for America to win the title of the next American Idol. With names like Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, David Cook, Kris Allen, and Chris Daughtry in the mix (Daughtry not actually winning the show), expectations should be set high – even if we have had a few flubs here and there. So … what does season 9 bring us? A flood of singer-songwriters. I personally think Idol flubbed big time by tipping the scale so heavily to that genre. Love the genre, but it’s tough to have a competition when only one or two might already have it in the bag. Who has a clear shot? Who could be the underdog? Who’s easy on the eyes? And what about the judges this season….click on below to see what some of us here at the Yak think and get my prediction on the Top 4.

The Lambert Saga Continues ….

[singlepic id=55 w=280 h=120 float=left]Well, Mr. Lambert, American Idol’s latest runner-up, is getting exactly what he wanted. People talking about him. ABC announced today that they canceled his appearances on both the Jimmy Kimmel Show, as well as his appearance on Dick Clark’s Rocking New Year’s Eve Special.  All this on the heels of his provocative performance at…

Saint Dagame’s Sermon

Greetings one and all please allow me to introduce myself.  I am Saint Dagame, patron saint of reality shows as well as high priest of the Church of Gina Gershon and today starts a new era for the Yak.  This is the first of many sermons that I will be giving to you, my adoring congregation, so remember this day because it will be one you will rejoice for decades to come.

I have decided to make this first sermon about tainting victories.  Did Apollo Creed ruin Rcoky’s title win?  Did the Patriots come up with conspiracy theories when they lost the Superbowl to the Giants?  Did Arnold Jackson make up excuses why he lost his fight with The Gooch?  The answer to all of the above is a resounding no, yet so many of you out there want to taint Kris Allen’s victory over Adam Lambert on American Idol by coming up with crazy conspiracy theories and downright nonsense so I’m here to set you straight.

When Is Enough Enough With American Idol?

[singlepic id=72 w=280 h=200 float=left] So we just had the showdown between Kris Allen and Adam Lambert on the finale of Season Eight of American Idol and I have to admit, despite media proclamations, this SHOULD  be a close race. But what I REALLY want to talk about here is the burning question of when is enough, enough with American Idol? The judges, the entire season, have been SO obvious in their idolistic adoration of Adam Lambert, it’s hard to imagine why the season was even allowed to continue. If the judges had their way they probably would’ve given the title to Adam weeks ago.

American Idol – Katy Perry… WTH?

Yes, I know I am late on this… but with all the hubbub of moving down to the final 2, Gokey leaving, and my other annoyances with the whole shebang, I completely let something slip from my mind, only to have it pop up again in my little brain today… and all I have to say is… WTF American Idol?
