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 →

The Chastity Suite

Zach and his trio of prospective wives head off to Thailand. Each of them is anticipating alone time with Zach without knowing what bombshell he plans to drop on them (cue Gap Band You Dropped a Bomb on Me). But first, Jesse grabs Zach to discuss his pre-game plan while reminding him that Fantasy Suites... Continue Reading →

Auditions 2023: Five from Round 4

Let’s muse about Round 4. I found some good ones this week, including a really good one. The Really Good One Warren Peay (To the Table Zach Williams).

Three auditions were worth my musings. What they share in common is unrefined natural vocal talent. What remains to be seen is if they can... Continue Reading →

Hometown Bound

This week Zach’s journey to find his best friend continued in Budapest. That being said[1], it was for me the fastest-moving, most straightforward, and most entertaining chapter of the season. Here’s my recap. Kaity gets the 1-on-1 that each of the other five girls desperately wants, especially Kat who really desperately NEEEEEEEEEEDS a 1-on-1. And... Continue Reading →

Auditions 2023: (A Good) Round 3

With ABC showing The Oscars next week, Idol’s producers loaded up on good auditions this week. I’ve got six Idolists that I’m keeping an eye on. Very Interested Marybeth Byrd (If It Hadn’t Been for Love The Steel Drivers). My favorite audition of the season so far LOL. Very smooth. Polished. Confident. It’s early but... Continue Reading →
