Last night, fans of American Idol had the opportunity to learn more about their favorite contestants based on their song choices for Home Week. Now, the question remains: who will have to actually return home — for good?
The Voice and American Idol are currently two of the most popular singing competition shows on network television. In addition to having millions of viewers tune in every week, each show has its own super-hot Latina judge. Shakira judges on The Voice, while American Idol has Jennifer Lopez. These two Latin ladies probably have something to do with audiences tuning in to each show week after week because of their hotness alone. Plus, one would think that they both know at least a tiny bit about what’s good when it comes to music.
America loves MK Nobilette. Not only is she the first openly gay contestant to make the top 13 on American Idol, she’s also boasts an impressive set of pipes and a charming personality. Last night, MK received a standing ovation for her cover of Allen Stone’s Satisfaction — and we think she deserved the enthusiastic response.
We’ve made it to the top 13 on American Idol and already, several front runners have emerged. While Majesty Rose and Alex Preston have certainly impressed with their vocal talent, Caleb Johnson was definitely the guy to beat during last night’s episode.
American Idol’s ratings may have fallen last year but we’re pretty sure that with a new judging panel consisting of Harry Connick Jr., Keith Urban and Jennifer Lopez, viewers across the nation will be tuning in for Season 13 on a much more regular basis—even if it’s just to ogle at the eye-candy of the two male crooners. But what we really want to know, is who’s hotter?
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.
