American Idol 2020: It’s a Top 11!

Lee DeWyze, 12/28/19

With a shortened American Idol schedule comes a rather big cut from 20 to 10. Personally, I don’t mind this big cut for the semi-finals to the finals stage, though my personal opinion has always been that I think the Top 20 should each perform twice before the cut is made. Nonetheless, […]

Lee DeWyze, 12/28/19

It’s been a while since I’ve written an article about American Idol, and last night’s “live” show seemed like the perfect time to get back in the habit. With everyone stuck at home, American Idol staged its first “at home” episode. Pre-recording all of the performances and splicing them together, the show […]

Was there a bigger hour of Survivor: Winners at War than seeing Sandra Diaz-Twine and Parvati Shallow get voted out back-to-back? The two winners, who most notably faced off in Heroes v. Villains for the title of two-time winner, are perhaps two of the biggest names in Survivor history – two […]

American Idol 2020: Episode #4

Lee DeWyze, 12/28/19

I’ve got to be honest. Last night’s auditions episode of American Idol was my least favourite of all the episodes so far this season. While there was again a spread of talent, there were only two stand-outs to me. The first was Makalya Phillips, a seventeen-year-old who had previously attempted to audition […]

RuPaul’s Drag Race: You Don’t Know Me

Meeting Willam

It goes without saying that the current season of RuPaul’s Drag Race has marred in controversy since its premiere last week. It all culminated in the disqualification of Sherry Pie, the first time a contestant has been disqualified post-filming in Drag Race her story. It all made for an uncomfortable second premiere, […]

The first was 23-year-old Amelia, who impressed the judges with her audition to The Beatles’ Yesterday to earn 3 yeses to Hollywood. Weirdly enough, she actually reminds […]
