Have you ever noticed how we can love a familiar and favorite song, only to hear it being (over-)used in a commercial? I usually find myself hating the song in the end.
A perfect example of this is the new hit song by American Idol winner, Phillip Phillips, “Home”. I… Continue reading
It was absolutely no surprise to me that Phillip Phillips won the season.
For the first time ever, I was actually able to sit through an entire finale. I still found it overdone and ‘hokey’, but not on the same scale as season finales of the past.
This finale was… Continue reading
How can he not?
The difference in the quality and production values of his and Jessica’s performances of their release singles were like night and day.
While the new song chosen for Jessica was a slow, somber ballad with only her tiny body in the center of that huge stage,… Continue reading
Since I have so much to write about lately, and because last night’s episode was so disappointing to me, I’m just going to touch on my thoughts.

Last night on American Idol, everyone seemed to find their own. Even Hollie Cavanagh, who has been struggling, put together great performances. She’s finally learned how to quit ‘thinking’ and start emoting – definitely connecting to the audience.

Perhaps they can split the prize? They all deserve it after the consistently great performances by all from week to week – and this week was no different.
