A good American Idol finale is kind of like the Fountain of Youth — and that’s not only a reference to 43-year-old Ricky Martin, 45-year-old J.Lo and 44-year-old Jordan Knight taking the stage and looking like they halted the aging process back in the late ’90s.
RelatedAmerican Idol: How Fox Failed Its Golden Goose — and Why Now Is the Perfect Time to Pull the Plug
After 13 grueling weeks of voting — encompassing some 250 competitive performances and a pupu platter of “Wait! Noooo!” eliminations — it’d be easy for even the most committed Idoloonie to feel drained, dazed and depleted. »
Nick or Clark? Clark or Nick? Who will be crowned our 14th and penultimate "American Idol" winner? And why must it take 126 minutes to find out? When "American Idol" was a colossus straddling the TV landscape, this sort of bloated spectacle wasn't just justified, it was practically necessary for Fox. Milk every blessed second out of "American Idol"! But Tuesday night's performance finale lost to "Undateable" in the 18-49 demo. That's a bit sad. But maybe ratings will still perk up for the actual finale. Follow along with me as we go on this lengthy journey to either Clark Beckham or Nick Fradiani's confetti-filled coronation... 8:00 p.m. Et. Nick and Clark are joining Fall Out Boy for a rousing show-opening rendition of "Centuries." Neither seems exactly sure whether or not they're the stars of this this particular performance. Clark in particular lingers in the background in discomfort waiting »

And throughout that time, the show’s judging panel has been my go-to source for mockery, outrage and befuddlement — as well as an assortment of all-important conspiracy theories.

Odd "American Idol" Season 14 fact: Unless I'm missing something, every single remaining "American Idol" Finalist this season is from the Eastern or Central Time Zone. Daniel Seavey and Adanna Duru were the only two contestants from the West Coast and they're gone. Last week, the otherwise dismal Daniel got hosed by the "Idol" Twitter Save, in which his geographic core was disenfranchised if they happened not to be watching an online live feed. The "Idol" Twitter Save returns on Wednesday (April 8), but with all of the singers' hometowns watching the same feed, nobody can claim that they're being Seaveyed. And, once again, viewers from outside of the Et/Ct time zones have been cut out of the elimination process. Tonight's theme is Billboard Hits, so follow along and chime in with your own thoughts... 7:59 p.m. Et. Has anybody else lost all sense of how many people are still left on "Idol" this season? »

The long-overdue elimination of Daniel Seavey finally occurred on American Idol. Now that the weakest singer of season 14 is no longer in the competition, where do we go from here? There are some contestants that obviously don't have much time left on the show -- the two that first come to mind are Rayvon Owen and Qaasim Middleton.
After seeing girl after girl after girl head home, a guy finally got the boot with Daniel's exit. When you look at the remaining girls, it's hard to imagine any of them being cut right now, but could that happen (with Tyanna)?

Once you’ve tasted Marcus Samuelsson’s cooking or watched Matt Damon pummel an enemy with his bare hands (on the big screen, of course), it’s hard to get excited about watching some up-and-comer try to pull off an imitation. And that was my worry going into Kelly Clarkson Night on American Idol.

The Kelly Clarkson Songbook. That's what we're getting on Wednesday (April 1) night's "American Idol." This is not to question Kelly Clarkson's awesomeness or even the very-goodness of Kelly Clarkson's discography, but there are some people in this "Idol" season who seem like they're going to be well-suited to tonight's theme and other people for home this may be excruciating, especially since the "Idol" voters are back in female-shunning mode this season. Let's see how things go... 8:00 p.m. Et. Greetings from Toronto, where I'm in town visiting the set of "The Strain." Because of timing, I may be pushing my "Survivor" recap to tomorrow morning.

We're only two weeks into this season's "American Idol" Finals and The Save is gone. The "Idol" judges opted to Save Qaasim Middleton last week. Were they protecting the entertainment factor that Qaasim brings to the show? Were they rewarding Qaasim for bringing energy to an episode that had lacked energy? Were they recognizing that America's voting has, thus far, been wonky as heck this season? Either way, Wednesday's (March 25) episode of "American Idol" is going to be a double-elimination episode, meaning that there are 11 remaining contestants, but presumably only nine are going to sing. This will change the entire architecture of the episode. Plus, Fox is boasting an appearance by Salt and/or Peppa, following last week's big Kenny Loggins appearance. Whee! 8:01 p.m. I think Nick Fradiani should have been the '80s Night mentor, since I'm pretty sure he's the only contestant this season who existed way back then. »
