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.

Let’s Get Serious

With Tuesday night’s finale still in front of us, this past Tuesday’s episode felt very much like the two warm-up bands before the headliner act we’re excitedly waiting for.

My Queen Makes a Decision

As always, Paradise Tuesday night provided plenty of things to poke fun at. With the arrival of foxy Jen, Blake has met enough girls at Stagecoach to form the world’s hottest basketball team. And Kristen transformed into the Spawn of Satan. But the night clearly belonged to My Queen Demi and Bachelor Nation’s collective night... Continue Reading →
