    Well, Claudia Conway's American Idol audition finally aired. The daughter of former Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway and lawyer George Conway faced the judges during the season premiere of the singing competition's 19th season. The whole thing was...interesting. Here's what happened: As soon as Claudia walked onstage, judge Katy Perry immediately asked her, "Are you OK?" "No, but yes," Claudia replied. There was a brief montage featuring Conway's parents — yes, both of them. Kellyanne appeared via video call, whereas George was shown fist-bumping Claudia and waiting outside the studio during the audition. Again, just weird stuff to watch. As for...

  • Here's Why People Now Think 'American Idol' Is Racist(WUT?!)

    "Good job at being racist and homophobic, American Idol." Those aren't my words, but they're the sentiments of plenty of fans after Sunday night's Disney-themed episode. After last night's votes were tallied, four of the show's minority contestants found themselves in elimination contention. Ada Vox, a drag queen, Jurnee, an openly gay and black contestant, Michelle Sussett, an immigrant from Venezuela, and Dennis Lorenzo, an African-American male, received the least votes after their performances. Jurnee was the only one to escape elimination. These four contestants were in the bottom because this is "Trump's America," according to some upset viewers.

    Core Media Group, the company behind "American Idol" and "So You Think You Can Dance," has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in New York. According to court papers, the company says it owes $398 million. That includes money owed for loans, back payments to former employees, and investors, according to The Hollywood Reporter. "American Idol" was the company's biggest breadwinner. And now that the show has ended at Fox, the company is unable to find a similar source of revenue. The company has been seeing losses from a decline in "American Idol" ratings for several years now, however. In 2014,...

    Seacrest out! Ryan Seacrest left fans confused and speculative after he gave his final sign-off on the series finale of American Idol on Thursday, April 7. With tears in his eyes, the host ended the show with a cryptic goodbye, which he later explained on Twitter. As season 15 winner Trent Harmon celebrated his victory with fellow contestants, an emotional Seacrest, 41, stood off to the side and told the audience, “One more time — this is so tough — we say to you, from Hollywood, goodnight America,” before slyly adding, “For now.” “I didn’t want to say goodbye last...

    Fox is lowering the curtain on “American Idol,” ending a series that dominated television throughout the 2000s and made stars of the likes of Simon Cowell, Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood. The network announced Monday that “American Idol” will go off the air after its 15th season next spring. The cast from the past seasons, with Ryan Seacrest as host and Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr. as judges, will return for a season-long celebration of the show’s history. “American Idol” faded over the past few years, eclipsed in the music competition genre it pioneered by “The Voice”...
  • Will FOX Pull the Plug on American Idol?

    04/18/2015 5:35:10 PM PDT · by SeekAndFind · 14 replies
    American Idol ratings hit a series low last week, dropping to a 1.4 in the desirable 18-49 demographic. Even when head to head competition with The Voice was no longer a threat (the rival show aired a special results show at 8 pm) the numbers stayed flat this week. Once the highly rated FOX show, Empire left the Wednesday night lineup, the show began to falter. The Wrap notes, however, that Idol is still ahead of the final season of the cancelled X Factor. Heading into this week the two regular editions of “Idol” were averaging a combined 2.9 rating...

    I haven’t done the math, but just spitballing it, I’ve spent somewhere in the vicinity of 800+ hours watching “American Idol” over the past 13 seasons. Do you know what you can accomplish in 800 hours?! Okay, i’m terrible at math, but that’s more than a month of my life on the couch watching everyone from Kelly Clarkson to that “Pants on the Ground” guy, Phillip Phillips and everyone in between.Bottom line is this: I know “Idol,” and so I feel perfectly comfortable saying that next season should be the show’s swan song. After 20 percent audience dips for the...

    A new analysis from Variety reminds us that Ryan Seacrest’s contract to host American Idol is up at the end of the year. The question is, will he re-up in light of the aging show’s diminishing ratings? His contract with NBC is also up at the end of 2014.During his last negotiations, Ryan signed a two year contract at 30 million dollars. One way for the producers to cut costs would be to hirer a younger host for less money. With the judges panel constantly in flux the past few years, would it be a good idea to cut Ryan...

    Former “American Idol” runner-up Clay Aiken officially filed Thursday to run for Congress in North Carolina, saying that he wants to help end the gridlock in Washington and that no single political party has all the answers.

    American Idol had made billions of dollars in profits over the years. Now comes word that the hugely successful show will be operating in the red this year for the first time in it's history, TMZ is reporting. It all has to do with 'the bottom line' which includes the fat salaries paid to keep it's bigger stars Jennifer Lopez and Ryan Seacrest happy. Jennifer inked an incredible $17.5 million deal to return to her post a third season, as MailOnline previously revealed, a substantial raise from the $15 million she was making when she left the show in 2012....

    American Idol has recaptured its magic, and Harry Connick Jr. is responsible for casting the spell. On the Season 13 premiere Wednesday, the new Idol judge not only obliterated the memory of last year's mockery of a panel, but also revitalized the spirit of the show. It's an impressive feat when you consider that Idol has been on a downward trajectory when it comes to ratings and its image. Although it's still too early to tell if Connick's charms will translate into an uptick in viewership, we're completely sold on him. What's so great about the new Idol judge? Here...
