  • 'The Voice' Season 6 Blind Auditions, Pt. 5: Waiting for Great

    "I want to hear someone who will blow me away. Let's do this," declared Adam Levine at the start of Monday's "Voice" episode, the penultimate Blind Auditions episode of Season 6. And his words certainly resonated with me. While the season had been filled with talent, of course, there still hadn't…

  • ‘American Idol’ Top 12 Results: Harry Gets Loud

    Later this season, "American Idol" will streamline its weekly results shows to only a half-hour.

  • 'The Voice' Season 6 Blind Auditions, Pt. 3: Brothers In (Usher's) Arms

    The third Blind Auditions episode of "The Voice's" sixth season aired Monday, and honestly, it was a little underwhelming.

  • 'American Idol' Top 13 Results: Let the Controversy Commence!

    Considering the glut of talent this year (with at least seven of the top 13 contestant being, in my opinion, potential winners), I'd hoped — even assumed — that a few weeks would pass by uncontroversially before there'd be any "shocker" results. But I was wrong.
