With her husky voice, MK Nobilette was a contender on American Idol from the very beginning, so having her as one of the Top 13 is really no surprise. Of course, there are those that would argue she made it through because of votes from fans that support her for being the first openly gay contestant on the show.
Following continued criticism surrounding its treatment of gay contestants, American Idol appears to be in the midst of some significant changes. Yesterday, the talented MK Nobilette earned distinction as the very first openly gay competitor to make the reality competition’s top 30.
Yesterday’s episode of American Idol detailed all the drama of Group Night, a chaotic process through which judges Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr. were forced to select the cream of the crop. Did any potential front runners emerge?
It has been a few weeks since we’ve last seen good ole Ruben Studdard on The Biggest Loser, but tonight, he and all the other eliminated contestants are back for the finale. And guess what? Not only do we get to see how much weight Studdard has lost, but he will also be performing his new single on the show!
If there’s one thing we love about this season’s judges on American Idol, it’s that they’re always willing to engage in a little comic relief. Last night was no exception, with Harry Connick Jr. blowing his ‘audition’ for Keith Urban.
Kids say the cutest things, don’t they? That was certainly the case for Jennifer Lopez, who got a seriously adorbs note from her 5-year old son Max. The American Idol judge was on The Ellen DeGeneres Show yesterday, where she shared the cute note with Ellen and the audience and was nearly brought to tears just talking about it. Awwww!!
Everyone — and we mean everyone — is talking about Harry Connick Jr. and his amazing debut as a judge on American Idol. Nobody was quite sure what to expect, although we all knew the singer would have the resume necessary to back up any criticism he offered. But former judge Ellen DeGeneres also recognized that Harry had always possessed another key quality: a great sense of humor!
Last night we saw the season 13 premiere of American Idol, and with another judging panel change, it was a refreshing change from the bickering of last season. As the hopefuls poured in to show off their talent, it was actually new judge, Harry Connick Jr. that stole the show!
American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez is one of the biggest superstars in the music industry, but her music isn’t the only thing that’s made headlines over the years. J.Lo’s relationships have created just as much attention as her number ones, and in a recent panel for the hit reality singing competition, the mother of two opened up about her love life, including her failed marriage to Marc Anthony.
Back in September, we learned that Harry Connick Jr. would be joining Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban on the American Idol judging panel, in an attempt to save the once popular singing competition. But what can Connick Jr. bring to the table that hasn’t been seen in a long time? Well, he may just be the new Simon Cowell of the show!
