Annie Lennox wears HIV Positive t-shirt on 'American Idol'

21 April 2010 9:57 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Annie Lennox made a fashion and humanitarian statement on "Idol Gives Back."

The Brit pop star wore a black t-shirt emblazoned with the words "HIV Positive" as she performed remotely. She had planned on appearing live on the show, but the Icelandic volcano ash had interfered with her travel plans.

The "HIV Positive" shirt isn't a message that she's HIV positive herself, rather a supporter of HIV awareness, treatment and prevention. It's part of an ongoing campaign to remove the stigma from HIV positive people so they can get the treatment they need.

Lennox has worn the shirt before for numerous public appearances including "Idol Gives Back" in 2008 and when she performed "Chain of Fools" with Aretha Franklin at the 25th Anniversary Rock & Roll Hall of Fame concert.

She sells a version of the "HIV Positive" shirt on her official website.

'American Idol' Power List: Who's your favorite from the Top 9?

6 April 2010 9:23 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

The Lennon-McCartney songbook is back (to where it once belonged) tonight on American Idol. Hopefully it'll be a little more Carly Smithson "Blackbird" than Kristy Lee Cook "Eight Days a Week." But no matter what hijinks or horror await us tonight, I'm forging ahead and updating the current season 9 rankings. Won't you do the same by voting for your favorite contestant in our Power List poll?

American Idol Review: Lee and Big Mike Stand Out

31 March 2010 6:55 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Lee DeWyze really stepped up last week on American Idol, breaking the inconsistency that has long plagued him and establishing himself as a guy who may last a long while.

Tuesday night, he followed up that performance and then some.

DeWyze turned the Cornelius Brothers' "Treat Her Like a Lady" into a contemporary rock tune that people loved. As for the weekly favorite, Crystal Bowersox, she traded in her familiar guitar for a piano on "Midnight Train to Georgia," faring pretty well.

Andrew Garcia did an acoustic rendition of Chris Brown's "Forever," while Michael Lynche was typically solid performing India.Arie's "Ready for Love" and Siobhan Magnus was a bit of a disappointment channeling Chaka Khan after a pair of strong weeks.

Lee DeWyze brings it again on American Idol.

The rest of the Top 10 performances weren't exactly up to par, but we've come to expect that by this stage. »

'American Idol' Recap: Dewyze, Bowersox Have Got Soul

31 March 2010 5:10 AM, PDT | MTV Newsroom | See recent MTV Newsroom news »

Moments before the Top 10 took to the "Idol" stage to sing soul and R&B songs, an "Idol" blogger colleague messaged me on Twitter freaking out. "Gahhh! Jim, season nine needs to start getting serious. It's getting out of hand. Maybe tonight will be the night."

My reply?

"Well, it certainly can't get any worse."

On that note, let's get to the performances!

Siobhan Magnus

Song: "Through the Fire" by Chaka Khan

Verdict: Through the Ringer

Ever wondered what it would sound like if Marlee Matlin sang in a wind tunnel? You're in luck, because Siobhan Magnus' take on Chaka Khan's classic provided just that! Boys and girls, step right up and see the incredible shrieking shrinking woman! Marvel at how quickly the Queen of Quirk can become as boring and atonal as previous seasons' ear-terrorists Jasmine Trias, Ramiele Malubay and Carmen Rasmusen!

What went wrong here? Well, »

'American Idol' Top 10 tackle the R and the B with Usher: How did they fare?

30 March 2010 7:15 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

All together now: "Yeah, yeah yeah. Yeah yeah. Yeah." Or something like that. 'Twas the night Usher came to American Idol to school a bunch of Jason Mraz-lovin', Lilith Fair-attending singers how to get down with the get down. And whaddaya know? [Warning: Spoilers ahead, west coast viewers!] As a whole, the to-date-disappointing cats of season 9 proved cooler than expected -- and started competing as if to say "Hold up! Let's not give the season 9 crown to Crystal Bowersox just yet!" Lee Dewyze still looked a little bit like he was going to experience a case of the voms, but his vocal was authoritative, »

'American Idol': Usher to mentor, check out the song list and our picks

25 March 2010 11:13 AM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

What should the "American Idol" Top 10 sing for the R&B/Soul week? Make your picks here.

Even though Usher kinda spilled the "Idol" mentoring beans over the weekend, it was officially announced during the Wednesday, March 24 results show that he would be mentoring the Top 10 for R&B/Soul week.

We love that R&B/Soul reaches way back into Motown because some of the non-Michael Lynche singers need some oldies thrown in there.

The song list is available here, but here is the whole list:

  

    * A Song For Momma - Boyz II Men

    * Ain't No Mountain High Enough - Diana Ross

    * Ain't Nothing Like the Real Thing - Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell

    * Ain't Too Proud to Beg - The Temptations

    * Angel of Mine - Monica

    * At Your Best You Are Love - Aaliya

    * Baby I Need Your Loving - The Four Tops

    * Back At One - Brian McKnight »

'American Idol' Power List: Vote for your favorite heading into the season 9 semifinals!

23 February 2010 11:08 AM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

At last, we come to the part of American Idol's ninth season that we've all been waiting for! No, not Randy Jackson's early retirement from the judging panel. Not the unexpected return of Jermaine Purifory and Leneshe Young, either. Nope, not a live performance by Allison Iraheta (you'll have to wait for Thursday for that!) Tonight at 8 p.m. Edt, we kick off the season 9 semifinals with performances by the top 12 ladies! (I'll be live-blogging the event right here at PopWatch.) Until then, however, it's time for me to count down the top 20 contenders based on the prior »
