Farewell for Now, American Idol, and Thanks for All the Memories

Farewell for Now, American Idol, and Thanks for All the Memories
Season 10 of American Idol. Top 4 results night. May 12, 2011.

I remember it vividly, joyfully — but not just because the exceptional Haley Reinhart (who’d been enduring egregious sabotage from judges Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson) improbably survived over rocker dude James Durbin. Mostly, the date is blazed into my memory because of a surprise delivery I’d received a few hours earlier from the New Jersey State Division of Youth and Family Services: Three-month-old foster twins, ridiculously cute boys whom my husband and I had only learned about earlier that morning.

And just like that, the former Destiny’s Child phenom-turned-r&B solo star had my attention. But would the rest of the show live up to Kelly’s “talent-first, drama-last” mantra?

Based on its deeply engrossing, frequently sweet and exceedingly honest opening hour, I’d say the answer appears to be “Yes!”

Kelly Rowland Hopes to Find the Next Destiny's Child and Backs Up Beyoncé: 'She Was Speaking Her Mind'
Kelly Rowland is hoping to find the next superstar girl group with her new docuseries Chasing Destiny, but she wasn't always convinced a reality show would be in her future. "After Destiny's Child wrapped the last tour [in 2006], I remember saying, 'I want to do a girl group of my own' ... And I didn't want a reality show; I didn't want a 'making the band,'" she tells W magazine in a new interview. "I didn't want those things that other networks thought that it would be." But after getting "good feedback" from Michelle Williams and Beyoncé, the star is feeling positive about her new venture.

Beyoncé Wants Kelly Rowland's New Girl Group to
Kelly Rowland's new show Chasing Destiny follows her quest to find the next great girl group.

Kelly Rowland's show seeks next big pop stars – but it's not like American Idol

The Destiny’s Child star and choreographer Frank Gatson were already trying to form a new girl group when producers asked them to document their quest

Kelly Rowland knows what it takes to make a girl group successful: along with TLC and Spice Girls, her former band Destiny’s Child remains one of the best-selling female-fronted acts of all time. The founding member is therefore a good fit for Bet’s new reality show, Chasing Destiny, which features Rowland searching for “the next big female superstar group”.
