The judges react to this week's resultsAngie Miller had never been in the bottom two or three this season of "American Idol," and she had been hyped as the girl to beat ever since Hollywood Week, when she wowed the judges with her original song, "You Set Me Free." Although she never gave a performance quite as amazing as that again, Angie still seemed like a shoo-in for next week's finale, and she always seemed superhumanly confident...until this Thursday, when, much to the shock of the judges, she unexpectedly went home in third place. And she unexpectedly broke down.Read More »from ‘American Idol’ Top 3 Results: Here Comes Goodbye

Last night, "The Voice" aired its first live results show of Season 4, and while the overall outcome was basically what my "The Day After" co-host Matt Whitfield and I had predicted, it was still a little surprising to see which contestants made it to the top 12 via the public vote, and which ones made it through only because they were their respective coaches' picks.Read More »from The Voice, The Day After: Season 4, Live Playoffs Results Dish

Last night's "American Idol" top three show was one of the strongest "Idol" episodes in weeks, as all three finalists experienced magical moments onstage. But unfortunately, the offstage drama surrounding the judges (namely news that all four of them--including Randy Jackson, who actually quit "Idol" today--may be leaving the show) cast a pall over what should have been a triumphant homecoming week for Angie, Candice, and Kree.
Today, my "The Day After" co-host Matt Whitfield and I talk about last night's episode and make our predictions for which ladies will be the last two standing (or singing). Enjoy the "Idol" chatter!Read More »from American Idol, The Day After: Top 3 Performances Dish

photo: Michael Becker/FoxIt's the end of an era, dawg. After a dozen seasons of faithful (dawgged?) service, "American Idol's" only constant judge, Randy Jackson, is no longer in it to win it. Randy has confirmed to E! News that he will be leaving "Idol" after Season 12.
"Yo! Yo! Yo! To put all of the speculation to the rest, after 12 years of judging on 'American Idol' I have decided it is time to leave after this season," Randy announced in his characteristically colorful manner. "I am very proud of how we forever changed television and the music industry. It's been a life-changing opportunity, but I am looking forward to focusing on my company Dream Merchant 21 and other business ventures."Read More »from The Dawg Days Are Over: Randy Jackson Leaving ‘American Idol’

This week's "Idol" has a homecoming theme, so Texas-based Sarah is inspired by her favorite down-home comfort food. "This is definitely a homey recipe for me," she says. "Nothing says comfort like some cheesy quesadillas!"Read More »from Snackin’ With Sarah Sellers: ‘Idol’ Top 3 Results Viewing Nosh
photo: Michael Becker/FoxOn Wednesday, "American Idol's" final three--Angie Miller, Candice Glover, and Kree Harrison--sang for a chance to compete in next week's big season finale. But much of their fate was not in their own hands. Each girl had to sing three songs, and--breaking from the tradition of past seasons' top three shows--they didn't get to choose any of the songs themselves.
Round one consisted of songs selected by in-house advisor Jimmy Iovine; round two was judges' picks (oh, why didn't someone film those deliberations?); and round three was producers' picks. During the first two rounds, the song choices pretty much made sense, but towards the end of the episode, one contestant was assigned a truly sabotaging song that all but assured that the third round would result in her going home in third place.Read More »from ‘American Idol’ Top 3 Night: Picks & Pans

photo: Tyler Golden/NBCThis Wednesday, "The Voice" top 12 were announced on the first publicly voted live results show of Season 4. Well, at least I think it was publicly voted. While it wasn't a huge shock how the four teams ultimately turned out, there were still a couple of surprises. And the biggest surprise was that many of America's votes didn't count at all.Read More »from ‘The Voice’ Live Playoffs Results: Top 12 Revealed, Scandal Averted
