Welcome to the New Blog!

Once upon a time, there was Idol Musings. Since February 2008, I have written faithfully on American Idol (and occasionally the other reality singing shows) with insight, snark humor and self-righteous candor. And Adam Lambert. I’ve written a lot about Adam Lambert. And within the blog’s 618 posts, I also wrote occasionally about music in... Continue Reading →

And Then There Were Five

Pain and outrage delayed for another week. As happy as I was to hear My Girl Casey’s name as being the first of the Final Five, I am just as shocked not to hear Hunter Mett’s who I was sure was going to win. Well, I became a lot less sure of that when Katy... Continue Reading →

She specifically mentioned Candice Glover who won Season 12 (2013) as someone who is no longer heard from. Actually, that can be said... Continue Reading →

Lackluster Comebacks

Voting Outrage and Boring Oscar Songs

Yes, this show infuriates me. The voters make me nuts. The judges’ comments are worthless. And what was with the sleepy, banal song choices from Oscar nominated movies? This was one of the worst theme nights I can remember. Yeah, I'm being especially crabby LOL. Went home Ava – Yes, I am shocked, irate and... Continue Reading →
