Last night on "American Idol," Kree Harrison and Candice Glover competed for the Season 12 crown, and it was probably the least exciting top two performance show in "Idol" history. (Unsurprisingly, it was also the lowest-rated.) From uninspired song selections to coronation songs that made "No Boundaries" sound good, this final showdown was, for the most part, a letdown.Read More »from American Idol, The Day After: Season 12 Finale Pt. 1 Dish

After an underwhelming and ballad-heavy top two "American Idol" showdown Wednesday night, Fox aired a new episode of Nigel Lythgoe's other talent show, "So You Think You Can Dance" — and this is when the network thankfully picked up the pace.
The show, now in its 10th season, held auditions for the first time in Detroit, and Wednesday's Motor City movers really revved up the sex appeal. There was a troupe of actual exotic male dancers, an abs challenge, a "jittin" dancer who practically gave judge Mary Murphy a lap-dance, and a smooth tap-dancing showman who could be this year's breakout heartthrob.Read More »from ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ Premiere, Pt. 2: Detroit Rock Jitty

Keith says he'll miss Randy most of all [photo: Jeffrey Mayer/WireImage]Backstage at night one of this season's "American Idol" finale, judge Keith Urban spoke to the press, and he was asked to recall his most moving moment of Season 12. Was it Kree Harrison's homecoming? Lazaro Arbos's audition? Angie Miller's Boston tribute?
"Hearing that Randy [Jackson] was leaving," Keith answered. When reporters chuckled, Keith added, "It's true!"Read More »from Keith Urban Reveals His Surprising “Most Moving Moment” of ‘Idol’ Season 12
Who will prevail? [photo Michael Becker/Fox]On Wednesday night, Kree Harrison and Candice Glover competed on the final performance show of "American Idol" Season 12, in a battle of what Ryan Seacrest rather uncreatively called "Country vs. Soul." (Really, Ryan? That's all you could come up with? Season 8's "Guy-Next-Door vs. Guyliner" had a better ring to it.)
Historically, this was the first girl-vs.-girl "Idol" finale showdown since Fantasia Barrino and Diana DeGarmo in Season 3. Was it as exciting as that finale? Well, Season 3 was nine long years ago, so my memory is fuzzier than one of Nicki Minaj's wigs…but in a word, no. No, it was not.Read More »from ‘American Idol’ Top 2 Showdown: Girl Power?

On last night's top 12 "Voice" results show, Vedo went home — as I'd predicted — and so did Garrett Gardner, as many Reality Rocks readers predicted. (Congrats, readers.) Neither elimination was a huge surprise, although I was a little sad to see Garrett and his lip-ring go through the (w)ringer this soon.Read More »from The Voice, The Day After: Top 12 Results Dish
