The best thing to do with the part of Idol where nothing happens is … supersize it?
The Farewell Season Audition Experience rolls into Philadelphia.
Idol wants a final Kelly Clarkson so bad, you can taste it through the screen.

It’s “Love Night,” which is a theme that is utterly without meaning.
A voting quirk!
Jason Mraz was last night's guest mentor, and he embodied the showmanship that the top five mostly lacked.
Ryan Seacrest is really knocking it out of the park when it comes to weird show-opening lines this season.
Grumpy Cat appeared last night. People sang, too, but Grumpy Cat, everyone.
Kevin Bacon does his best Seacrest and then is never heard from again.
Somewhere, Pia Toscano is kicking herself for not waiting until this season to audition.
In a season of stinkers, a true one-star stinker.
Back to the 1980s, for better or for worse (leaning heavily on the latter).
In which the girls in the audience chanted, "Save him! Save him!" like they were at Sam's crucifixion.
Well played, Idol.
Are we so afraid of our need for acceptance that we can’t even beg for acceptance on a show that is a literal plea for acceptance?
We all hope these kids will develop some kind of personality.
Remind us when the results show is going down to 30 minutes again?
Top-ten song night, and someone definitely sings "Pumped Up Kicks," even though we all know what that song is about.
The top ten competitors are revealed.
It was movie night and not one person sang Aerosmith's "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing." Miracles happen.

This week, Idol admitted it had a problem.
We are so close to the finish line we can taste it, and it tastes like rainbows.
Down to three. Finally. Finally, finally, finally.
Harry Connick Jr. was last night's real winner.
If you watched last night's episode, you were a sucker.
The judges went all in for one particular contestant on last night's American Idol.
With appearances by Fantasia and Paula Abdul.
We are down to the first all-female top five in the show's history.
Jimmy Iovine really gave it to Lazaro last night, huh?
Ladies and gentlemen, the songs of Burt Bacharach.
Can we get some more Jimmy Iovine up in here please?
Last night was rock night! Or, as we call it, countdown to “Crazy Little Thing Called Love" night.
The results shows have basically turned into an hour-long variety show in which the action takes place in the last fifteen seconds.
Man, those group numbers are just the worst.
Is Lazaro our new Sanjaya?
Can we please retire Beatles Night before an entire generation grows up thinking this is how Beatles songs sound?
The thing with Idol is just when you write it off as a bloated waste of time and effort, it comes back with a nice, tight hour of television.
If the competition starts now, what the hell have we been doing for the last eight weeks?
The long, cold march to Idol's top ten men and top ten women ended last night.
Last night, we spent two hours on ten guys a whole network is actively rooting against.
You guys! After only seven weeks of this show, it’s time for us to start voting.
Where’s Zoanette? Where’s Zoanette? Where’s Zoanette?
In which Zoanette does "Circle of Life" from The Lion King and it's wonderfully bananas.
Have we mentioned that Idol producers would like you to choose a lady this year? Because they really would.
It’s a sudden death round, wherein ten women will sing and five will go home.
Boy oh boy is American Idol desperate for a girl to win this year.
Hollywood Week continues! Or, really: Hollywood Week stops, rewinds, and replays last week’s episodes.
Season twelve of American Idol would be lost without Nicki Minaj.
At this time every year, American Idol stops meandering and just takes off. It’s Hollywood Week!
This audition cycle is finally over. That’s it! Nine hours that felt like a lifetime.
This episode made us feel lots of things. Some good, most not.
One-hour episodes are immeasurably more palatable.
Idol never met a potentially interesting moment it couldn’t neuter with endless padding.
Boy, this "feud"! It is imitation beef. It is beef by-product.
It’s all frightfully tiresome.
It took them six tries, but they’ve finally cast the White Boy With Guitar role perfectly.
After the most predictable season ever, the show has one surprise in it after all.
The only questions left are who will lose to Phillip next week, and exactly how will the producers waste your time.
Idol, you can tell that your top three isn’t making much of an emotional impact when most of the signs are for Ryan Seacrest.
It is time for our results, delivered in a one-hour show built around four seconds of action.
We wish they’d give up the pretense and just say: Tonight’s theme is “Songs.”
Someone gets kicked off, but not before performances by Coldplay and Carrie Underwood.
We saw last night's episode live from the Idoldome and, let us tell you, it's like a completely different show in there.
We will spend the next few weeks in the stage I call The Purging of the People You Knew Couldn’t Win.
Our top six rock the songs of Queen.
Also, thoughts on the destructiveness of LMFAO.
We weren't really expecting last night's Idol to start with a T.S. Eliot quote.
Jennifer Hudson and James Durbin stop by. No one acknowledges that neither won their seasons.
Dave Holmes recaps this week's episode from a gay bar in New Orleans.
And this is why you shouldn’t choose “Master Blaster” as your “Save Me” song.
Did anyone else notice how crazy Ryan Seacrest was acting last night?
The producers, judges, and host of American Idol seem genuinely surprised at how good last night was.
Tonight’s mentor has become your high school drama teacher.
Tonight's elimination: Some serious bullshit.
Only the Good Die Young clearly details money fallin’ out the sky, big-ass mansions and 767s.
Why does this show pretend early elimination is the end of the line?
In which will.i.am says "swaggernaut." Ughhh.
Now let’s spend an hour finding out which child we’re going to humiliate.
The top six women have a bare-knuckle throwdown over who gets “I Will Always Love You.”
“He’s a handsome guy, but handsome is not enough for American Idol!”
Let's pick the ladies.
The GOP nominating process is like greased lightning in comparison.
“We watched you very vividly, and it was transcendental.”
We're almost to the voting. Almost.
Oh, here we go to Vegas.
At Group Night.
It's the beginning of Group Week/Day.
The Girl Who Fell Off The Stage.
Yes, there's an arch in St. Louis. No, you don't have to keep showing it.
Tonight Steven Tyler looks like all of the regular female cast members of Six Feet Under.
American Idol will suck the life right out of even a happy, music-loving guy.
Oh, these painful audition rounds.
And Jim Carrey's daughter.
Idol, you are mad hyperbolic tonight.
The spirits of the children in the woods snuck into you.
His long country-scored nightmare has come to an end.
"I am excited that it is the last two nights, but not about watching the last two nights. It’s like if you referred to the night before you had kidney stones removed as 'Kidney Stone Eve.'”
Who likes country music? Because you have no choice in the matter.
His head hurts from trying to parse Ryan's statement that Beyoncé is "a triple threat two times over."
Ryan says of the contestants, “All four will get to go home and see their families, but only three will do it in style.” I guess the fourth one has to go home hanging off the side of a train, like in India.
Scotty appears to be calmly but eagerly studying Lady Gaga to see if there is some gender trickery going on, as he’d heard tell of such shape-shifters and wants to be on guard against bewitchments.
Maybe I should have asked this before, but are we supposed to like Ryan Seacrest?
That was a bad performance. This is a singing contest, not a crying competition.
American Idol Recap: Paul F. Tompkins on the Carole King Aftermath and the World’s Oddest Viewer Questions
"One question caught my eye because it was astounding in its self-absorption, another because it involved a very specific type of dream."
American Idol Recap: Paul F. Tompkins on Carole King Night and the Mysterious Presence of Penny Marshall
Guest mentor Babyface looks good! He could be referred to at most as Adolescentface!
Plus, Casey shows off a fan-made painting.
These kids are all really good at imitating each other. Maybe that should be the show: one month of establishing who they are as individuals, then one month of them mocking each other in clip packages.
"Am I being hard on a bunch of kids who entered a contest? If so, I am the only one."
Perhaps advance knowledge of this theme led to Pia’s being voted off — it was all to avoid her inevitable cover of “My Heart Will Go On.”
He wonders what has gone wrong in his life that he will actually miss an 'Idol' contestant.
"So, Will.I.Am is on the show every week, now? It is seriously giving me anxiety that his presence on the show appears to be open-ended."
This is the “fall back” side of the daylight saving time seesaw that balances out the “spring forward” of the Judges’ Save.
"I wonder what the ratio of early/good to late/garbage will be in the songs we hear."
Oh, the mind boggles trying to imagine the turbulent seas churning in Casey’s perfidious stomach upon this hour!
Motown classics are undeniable works of art, the result of concentrated greatness, and they will live forever in the pantheon of songwriting. But many of these treasured songs I never, ever want to hear again, ever in my life, hear me God.
Scotty is becoming an exact doppelgänger of George W. Bush. By the end of this season he will at least own a baseball team.
“But think of it, gentlemen: what if they sang a song from the year they will die?”
But first, let's get ready for the placement of some products!
“The top thirteen will be working with producers from Interscope records. This is a big deal, because the music industry is doing so great!?
"I don’t know why they can’t just stick to ten people. People like the decimal system; it’s comforting."
"I find it hard to believe all of these kids would be choosing stuff ever-so-slightly out of their range. But maybe they like a challenge! All of them!"
They pick their own songs. Is that good news or bad news?
We have our finalists, but Steven Tyler never masters the art of "Bad news ... you made it!"
The judges start to narrow it down to 24, and the task may break Jennifer Lopez.
I was relieved to see that the contestants are going back to singing individually, even though I knew I would not like most of their singing.
Why are they really doing this, I wonder? Is 'American Idol' broke, and they're subcontracting sleep-deprivation studies?
"327 contestants will parade across the stage, but only none of them can justify this arbitrary number of people."
"'Idol' wrote the book on milking it and must be rereading that book on a rainy day."
"I am starting to really kind of like J.Lo on this show. Wait, what did I just write?"
"Okay, Texas. This has gone on long enough. You can’t have both: Hats or belt buckles, time to choose."
He wonders whether the dueting exes are really suited for the reunion the judges hope and pray for.
Jerome Bell gets through with the loudest version of "Let's Get It On" you've ever imagined. That song is about sex, does he know that?
Randy has been joined by "former actress/eventual Zsa Zsa Gabor successor Jennifer Lopez, and a creature some say is a living candle, but whom I believe to be the Ghost of Steven Tyler."
The Crystal versus Lee showdown is decided, but it's an afterthought to homages to the departing Cowell.
In Simon's second-to-last episode, Mama Sox shows why she should have the win.
Our finalists are exactly who we thought they'd be months ago.
The final three play the judges' choices, and damned if the judges weren't right.
Another contestant goes home, reassured by Daughtry that there's still a career out there if you miss the top three.
The returning mentor handed out T-shirts labeling each contestant either "Artist" or "Contestant." None read "I'm With Stupid."
The top five become four after Harry Connick Jr.'s tutorials.
The final five take on the Sinatra songbook with the wiseassed help of Harry Connick Jr.
Everyone excelled on Shania Twain night, so for the first time in a while, there was suspense in the bottom three.
American Idol Recap: The Judges Try to Pretend Crystal Bowersox Isn’t a Sure Thing on Shania Twain Night
Is Crystal the inevitable victor? The judges feign doubt.
It was all for a good cause, even if the Black Eyed Peas seemed like they were wishing viewers ill.
Alicia Keys warily and politely mentors, while one contestant lives up to her hopes.
In the midst of a double elimination, Adam Lambert demonstrates what he meant by "performance."
Last year's runner-up comes back to mentor the contestants in singing the King's songs.
For once, the judges seem to really deliberate on whether or not to use their Judges' Save, as opposed to just be talking about where to have dinner after the show.
The top nine take on Lennon and/or McCartney songs, with special didgeridoo and bagpipe accompaniments.
In between variety-show-big performances by Diddy, Usher, and Ruben Studdard, someone else gets the boot.
The top ten take on soul and R&B with guest mentor Usher, who needn't worry about the competition.
The judges didn't even debate a save for what was widely considered the worst 'Idol' performance ever.
Hannah Montana stopped by to mentor the top eleven.
The first of the top twelve goes, while guest performer Ke$ha hobnobs with dancing TVs.
On Rolling Stones night, some of the final twelve are hot stuff, while some leave us so cold, cold, cold.
Two surprise eliminations puts the voting public's taste in question ... as usual.
Some early favorites tank, some early disasters redeem themselves, and one man drives Kara to tears.
Risk-taking was hard to find in the performances of the final eight women.
Though all four of the ousted contestants were minorities, you could only blame their talent for their elimination, not their race.
The top ten women perform, and we've finally got a competition.
Unexpectedly performing a day early, the men show a modicum of improvement. Is that a compliment?
Is it coincidence that the first singers booted are both Hispanic? And that one of them was actually good?
Though Simon et al scolded the girls for unoriginality last night, the men who attempted originality were slapped down.
On a largely unoriginal night, most of the dozen women came out desperately trying to sound like someone famous.
The judges break all the news, and we finally have our top 24.
The judges start narrowing down to 24, and take their sweet time to give semi-finalists ample time for coronary episodes.
Two Lady Gaga covers, one Fleetwood Mac, and a whole lot of late-night tears.
Degeneres proves able to criticize in her maiden voyage at the judges' table.
A compilation of unaired auditions from the last seven shows proved we saw all we needed to.
And guest-judge Victoria Beckham is back to make sure all is pretty, pretty, pretty.
NPH brought honesty and great judgment to the show. Joe brought his hair.
The two judges prove a study in contrasts. Guess who's the snotty one?
Kristin Chenoweth of 'Wicked' joins the judges for sob stories and beatboxing in Florida.
Your next 'American Idol' likely won't be coming from Chicago, based on these tryouts.
Lifetime-movie tales and a whole lot of shrieking drive Simon to his sickbed.
As season nine begins, is his farewell tour the beginning of the end for the show?
The FAREWELL SEASON is so screwy.
DioGuardi ripped open her dress to reveal a black bikini and a very toned 37-year-old-body. Oh, dear.
Only 23.7 million!
So sure were we yesterday that Kris Allen would be voted off this week that we Photoshopped him into a coffin. Oops!
Kris Allen sure picked a bad week to win us over.
Even after all the other awful things that happened on last night's 'American Idol,' Allison Iraheta's premature elimination was still a bummer.
Adam gets out-screeched!
He's the first contestant in the show's history to be voted off an incredible three times.
Apart from a couple of performances, last night's episode was easily the most boring, skippable one of the season so far.
Lil Rounds, we hardly knew ya.
Never again will we know the hilarious thrill of seeing a contestant humiliated twice.
"Let me just see you do it one more time with your hands in your pockets — no hand gestures."
Has America condoned a funk cover of a Don Henley song?
Now that Adam Lambert seems to have this thing locked up, who will he destroy on this season's finale?
Last night, contestants were allowed to sing anything they wanted. Results varied.
Last night, obnoxious roughneck Michael Sarver was sent home to work on an oil rig — twice!
All thanks to Sideshow Bob!
Not only was Alexis Grace voted off last night without being rescued, but 'Idol' offed her in what was surely one of the most brutal dismissals in the show's history.
Producers were allegedly hoping she'd be in the finale — but she stunk last night! So will they save her?
Vulture completely approves of the new "Judges' Save" rule.
Did 'Idol' producers just think this season's contestants looked too comfortable performing in front of 25 million people?
Jasmine: Not that great.
We like the guy, but when will the judges give him some honest feedback?
When yesterday we called for the immediate dismissal of the worst-ever 'Idol' contestant, we didn't want it to be like this.
Sadly, Tatiana Del Toro will probably live to see another week.
Who deserved Tatiana's spot?
Her continued willingness to show her face in public is truly an inspiration, and almost makes up for the Jason Mraz song she auditioned with.
We recap last night's eighth-season premiere in typical chart-based fashion.
When Ryan made the terrible announcement last night, we thought of nothing but the immortal lines from Housman.
Not that it makes any difference to the show's cheat-happy producers.
Why was Syesha Mercado eliminated?
Tragically, Syesha will not be in next week's all-David season finale.
Why was Jason Castro eliminated?
He sang "I Shot the Sheriff"! We can't believe it either!
Why was Brooke White eliminated?
The top five performed the songs of Neil Diamond — and the entire show was exposed as a fraud!
Why was Carly Smithson eliminated?
The contestants tear out their vocal cords on Andrew Lloyd Webber night, and Vulture charts the results.
Why was Kristy Lee Cook eliminated?
Last night, the remaining finalists sang selections from the Mariah Carey songbook. Sadly, there were very few high notes.
Last night, American Idol took a break from crushing dreams to raise money for the needy!
Last night, the Idol finalists sang "inspirational music." Also, Sindbad was there!
Why was Ramiele Malubay eliminated?
Last night, Dolly Parton visited the nine remaining American Idol finalists, none of whom had any idea who she was.
Why was he eliminated?
Last night, contestants picked songs released the year they were born. Also, Paula Abdul wore this on television.
Why was Amanda Overmeyer eliminated?
Last night on American Idol, the contestants took another swing at the Beatles songbook and front-runner David Archuleta got his groove back.
Why was he eliminated?
Even David Archuleta forgot the lyrics!
Why were they voted off?
Last night on American Idol, the female half of this year's top 16 performed songs of the 1980s. Sadly, all singers were struck by the very same problem that affected seven of Tuesday's male contestants: none of them are David Archuleta.
But what about the stripper?
Who got voted off?
Who went home?
Last night, with this season's freeloading rejects now thankfully returned to obscurity, American Idol weighed the talents of the top twelve male contestants.
Plus: Who cried the best?
Last night, American Idol flew successful contestants from eight previous episodes to Hollywood, California, ostensibly to pick the best singers, though really to weed out the ones who looked bad under real TV lighting.
Last night's episode of American Idol featured leftover contestants from the previous seven audition shows, presumably because Fox executives think they can air whatever they want these days and still top their strike-addled competition in the ratings.
Last night, American Idol traveled to Atlanta where the show had previously discovered the hidden talents of Clay Aiken, Fantasia Barrino, and Jennifer Hudson.
No Clay Aikens in Miami either.
Last night the Idol judges auditioned contestants in Omaha, Nebraska. It wasn't very good.
Last night, Ryan Seacrest & Co. rolled into Charleston, South Carolina, to audition 10,000 American Idol hopefuls, none of whom will likely end up in the finals, or even the Top Twelve.
American Idol is boring.
American Idol was back again last night, this time on a hunch that there might be talent somewhere in Dallas, Texas — the producers probably won't be making that mistake again!
American Idol came back last night to see if there's still a single decent singer left in the United States that's not already been signed and dropped by RCA Records — and we made pie charts!
