Don’t get us wrong — we love Nelly Furtado. But her performance of her new single ‘Big Hoops’ during the Billboard Music Awards fell a bit short of our expectations. With such big hits as ‘I’m Like a Bird’ and ‘Maneater,’ we were excited to see what the songstress had in store for us tonight.
Disappointment isn’t a strong enough word to explain how we felt when they cut off Natasha Bedingfield’s performance of ‘Last Dance’ by the late Donna Summer.
Summer had been an influential part of the music industry for the last 40 years and to have them cut to a commercial before Bedingfield could even finish the first chorus of the song just seemed downright rude.
It’s been a decade since Kelly Clarkson became the first winner of the hit TV show ‘American Idol’ and tonight onstage at the Billboard Music Awards, Clarkson proved that she’s still got the same talent and charisma that made us fall in love with her 10 years ago. Singing her new single ‘Dark Side,’ the singer wore a sexy red dress and looked confident and radiant as she delivered the first performance of the night.
For the third round, mentor Jimmy Iovine got to pick a song for the ‘American Idol’ contestants to sing. Lucky for Joshua Ledet, it really doesn’t matter what he sings. Iovine could have told the singer he was doing ‘Old MacDonald Had a Farm’ and Ledet would have somehow blown it out of the water.
‘American Idol’ contestant Joshua Ledet did sunshine state native Josh Groban proud with his powerful performance of the song ‘You Raise Me Up’ on tonight’s (May 9) episode. Ledet showed a range of vocal variety, taking us from low to high and making it almost impossible to believe that last year he was sent home without even a ticket to Hollywood.
This week, ‘American Idol’ contestant Joshua Ledet sang ‘Ain’t Too Proud To Beg’ by Motown sensations the Temptations. After this performance, we don’t think Ledet will have to beg, or even politely ask for America’s vote because he’s already got it. In rehearsal, Jimmy Iovine told the singer he was “a gift” and joked about when, not if, he would be making a record with Ledet.
‘American Idol‘ contestant Elise Testone was left to close tonight’s show, and after several standout performances, the pressure was on. Maybe it’s simply because she’s got the chops, or maybe it was the video of celebrity Jason Segal wishing her luck before she sang – but in any event she blew it out of the water with her performance, of Lady Gaga‘s ‘You & I.’
This week’s ‘American Idol‘ contestant Joshua Ledet turned 20 years old today (April 11). But before performing Bruno Mars‘ ‘Runaway Baby,’ Ryan Seacrest had a special birthday greeting for Ledet from none other than third season ‘Idol’ winner Fantasia Barrino. We visited his hometown of West Lake, La. where apparently they are as excited about Ledet as we are. Humble and adorable Ledet said “I’m just a small town boy, and that’s what I want to be at the end of the day.”
Mississippian and ‘American Idol’ contestant and Skylar Laine may just be the best singer on whatever side of the Mississippi she resides on. This week the contestants had a plethora of options as they were able to choose any song that had been recorded from 2010 on. Not a surprise Laine picked a country song, ‘Didn’t You Know How Much I Loved You,’ by fellow country crooner and ‘Idol’ alum Kellie Pickler.
Sometimes things happen that bring out the 13-year-old boy in all of us. Certainly a book entitled ‘Cooking with Poo’ elicits a response that most likely involves snickering and/or the inevitable question, “Why on earth would anyone want to cook with poo?”
After being in the bottom ‘American Idol’ contestant, Heejan Han entered this week with his tail between his legs. While his charismatic personality and humor shone on stage, his vocals weren’t quite cutting it. Perhaps it was the harsh reality of barely surviving another week that got Han to take the competition seriously and hit us with a comeback.
