'American Idol' Recap: Malaya Watson Goes Home + Power Rankings

April 11th, 2014 9:35am EDT
Eliminated contestant Malaya Watson
Even at 30 minutes, the results show feels like a waste of time.

Last night, the 'American Idol' results show tried to pack as little as possible into 30 minutes of live television. Spots normally reserved for musical guests and contestant backstories were eschewed in favor of...well...talking. And moving the camera around the stage. And...that's it.

It seems impossible to think that with the results show halved the producers would have trouble filling its running time, but then last night happened. A night where the Ford Commercial was the most entertaining part of the show. A night wher...

Jessica Meuse performs on AMERICAN IDOL
After the save, the top eight got a second crack at America's votes, this time with songs from the eighties.

So who was super-cool and tubular and all the other good eighties' slang? Read on to find out...

Jena Irene sang "I Love Rock 'N' Roll" by Joan Jett

Keith Said: I love the originality you bring to all your performances.

J-Lo Said: It languished a bit in the middle.

Harry Said: I wasn't a fan of the arrangement. It felt very choreographed.

The Verdict:

Jena picks the most excruciating of all worn-out karaoke songs and makes it about as boring and karaoke as she can.

She tries ...

'American Idol' Recap: The Judges Save Sam Woolf + Power Rankings

'American Idol' Recap: The Judges Save Sam Woolf + Power Ranking
Last night brought 'American Idol's' now-traditional once-a-season anti-climax when nobody was eliminated from the show.

Poor little Sam Woolf got the lowest vote total, but the judges foolishly exercised their save on him when they should have kept it in their collective pocket in the insane chance that Alex ever end up singing for his life. Sam simply isn't going to win as evidenced by his limited talent and frequent trips to the bottom three. He's not the guitar guy the girls are looking for and the time had come for the judges to just let him amble down his dough-eyed road.

It was alm...

Jennifer Lopez Drops The F-Bomb On 'American Idol'
Jennifer Lopez stunned viewers on "American Idol" on Wednesday night when she cursed at her fellow judges Harry Connick, Jr. and Keith Urban while critiquing a contestant.

Lopez was praising contestant Jena Irene for her performance and encouraging her to be more spontaneous on stage when Connick and Urban began jokingly attempting to persuade Lopez to demonstrate a "hair flip."

"Hair flip! Hair flip!" Connick chanted, the audience joined in the goading, and Lopez either said "f**k you" or "f**k off." Producers quickly moved the camera away from Lopez to censor the moment, and she was cle...

'American Idol' Recap: The Top 9 Rock Out As They Sing With The Band

March 27th, 2014 9:55am EDT
Jena Irene performs on AMERICAN IDOL
'American Idol' brought the musicians out from the shadows last night and put them right next to the contestants in a night called 'I'm with the Band'.

It's an interesting concept. At least it would be if it didn't make any difference whatsoever where the band was located. Moving them five feet forward doesn't exactly make for a whole new 'Idol'.

Though it did result in some pretty good performances...

Alex Preston sang "Don't Speak" by No Doubt

Keith Said: I wish you'd give it a little more edge.

J-Lo Said: That was the soft version of the song. It kind of sucked the energy out of i...

Watch Jennifer Lopez's Explosive 'I Luh Ya Papi' Performance On
"American Idol" judge Jennifer Lopez blew the roof off of the Idol stage on Thursday night. First, she impressed Ryan Seacrest with her really short, gold mini dress, and then she hit the stage in sparkly denim cut-offs.

She was super hot!

'Bones' Season 9 Episode 17: Spartacus In The Kitchen

March 18th, 2014 7:55am EDT
Bones TV series
A good mix of ingredients on Bones 9.17, including a new Cuban intern, a classic fight in the kitchen, and an even more classic - at least, for Bones - battle of religion versus science.

The new intern is brilliant, charming, and handsome Rodolfo, who headed his own forensic team in Cuba. Angela's drooling over him, Cam is smitten but is more circumspect, and even Bones finds him attractive, though of course she can't admit it. In fact, when he makes a pass at her - I haven't heard that phrase in a while, so I figured I'd use it - Bones threatens to send him packing back to Cuba. It's alw...

J-Lo Said: It's like baby rock star. We need big rock star.

Harry Said: It was an average performance, but you're on the way.
