Lieber and Stoller night (aka the night American Idol lost me as a fan)

Moving to Wordpress

Due to the recent (and very public) problems experienced by, we are moving our American Idol blog to WordPress. The new address is:

We hope you will continue to follow us there as we follow the American Idol season to its conclusion, as well as blogging about shows like The Voice and X-Factor. We are also working on adding a new feature: Netflix movie reviews. This feature would focus on reviews of titles available for instant viewing through Netflix.

Thank you for your loyalty to us at our Blogger site. We look forward to seeing you at the new and improved WordPress site!

(As always, our old posts will remain available on this site, but we are also importing them into the new site.)

This review is a little late, and it's going to be a bit abbreviated. But frankly, a lot of my interest in American Idol is waning, and I'm hearing that from a lot of my friends and family, too. After a promising start of the post-Simon Cowell era, Idol has managed to kill a lot of the good will that fans have had toward the show.

By next year, there will be other options and perhaps different loyalties for many fans. But for now, we have the Top 5 on Idol that will tonight be reduced to a Final Four. Last night's show had some high and low moments, but if you listened only to the judges, you'd get a different perspective than the one I'm about to present
