I'm with Simon and I don't see the point in having the contestant sing for 2 minutes to delay the inevitable - they're either gonna get the boot or they'll be saved. Period. »»

American Idol - Episode 09-22 Recap

Lots of fun during the results show as I heard Lilly Scott cut a promo on the Idol voters, essentially calling them idiots. And while I do think that they were silly getting rid of her, the truth is that since it is at it's core a popularity contest »»

American Idol - Episode 9-19 Review

Will this be the first diva-free American Idol? There doesn’t seem to be a single female contestant that has an explosive and emotional vocal ability. It’s a tepid bunch even amongst the few talented amongst the remaining eight. Nobody seems able »»

American Idol - Episode 9-15 Review

Last night’s Top 12 boys episode should be rated the worst two hours of network television ever watched by 23 million people. Fox executives should have spent the night on the phone screaming at the producers for allowing the most unprofessional pe »»

American Idol - Episode 9-2 Review

There’s a sense that tonight’s audition in Atlanta is bad. Fox had 30 minutes snipped from this 2 hour special. Sure they’re running a historic 450th episode of The Simpsons, but it’s a rerun of Sunday’s episode. If Fox really wanted to giv »»

American Idol Season 9 Preview

Previewing a reality show is sort of like trying to figure out your NFL teams potential from the offseason workouts - darn near impossible.

MGF Reviews Randy Jackson's Music Club, Volume One

Randy Jackson's Music Club, Volume One Concord Records/Dream Merchant 21 (03/11/08) Pop / R&B / Rock / Country If you can ignore the cheesy album cover, Randy Jackson's Music Club, Volume One is actually "pretty good, dawg." Most of America knows Randy Jackson now as a fun-loving American Idol judge, but he is also a Grammy-winning producer, virtuoso musician, hit songwriter and legendary A&R executive. His music industry experience is vast and Music Club Volume One is an accurate representation of what Jackson views as the formula to success in the overall current musical landscape. Paula Abdul's "Dance Like There's No Tomorrow" is catchy in that traditional Paula-Abdul-dance-track fashion and is her first new song in over a decade. Maybe I'm drinking the Coca-Cola, but I think Paula still has it. Joss Stone's "Just Walk On By" would be a solid dance/R&B hit for her and it's great to see her chosen by Jackson as one of the stars to represent what he considers an album that has something for everyone. I would absolutely love to see Joss perform this live with some Paula choreography. "What I Am So Afraid Of" by Trisha Covington, Keke Wyatt and Kiley Dean, is exactly what I'd expect to hear on pop radio and covered on American Idol as the go-to ballad. "Like A" represents the R&B/hip-hop party by Crunk Squad featuring Ghostface Killah. "Who's Gonna Love You Now" has a beautiful vocal by Kellie Love and could provide some good remixes if released as a single. One of the biggest surprises was "Wang Dang Doodle"—and before you get caught up in the title, the legendary Sam Moore, Keb' Mo and Angie Stone provide some Louisiana blues and soul that make this track a welcomed addition to a pop-heavy album. This track provides what I wish more collaborations would do—a true mentor in the music industry like Moore with the up-and-comers who honor the traditional sound with their contemporary touches. »»
