Glee co-creator Ryan Murray's next show is a horror anthology.

With the grand finale of the series getting closer every week, the writing on Glee has gone from whimsical to downright wacky in tone. For those of you wondering what the show has been desperately in need of, it’s more Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch). And this week, the musical series definitely delivers. Sue’s crowning moment is a solo that has her head popping out of lockers and file drawers. And I say that after also having seen robot drones with high definition cameras float through the halls of McKinley High on this show. More »

‘Glee’ Recap: Santana’s Proposal, Coach Bieste’s Announcement & Becky’s Boyfriend

Becky's Back

In this extra special, emotionally charged episode of Glee, entitled “Jagged Little Tapestry,” the writers worked overtime to jam in as many socially conscious moments as possible. Without giving away too much at the top, let’s just say there were three pretty big bombs dropped during the episode, all done to the tunes of some particular ’70s and ’90s classics. More »

By now, you’ve surely read the news that Asheville, North Carolina, native Caleb Johnson was crowned winner of American Idol‘s 13th season. The top two finalists, Caleb and Jena Irene, had a good, old-fashioned sing-off Tuesday night with the results of America’s final vote announced last night (May 21).

Not to be left out, judges Jennifer Lopez, Harry Connick Jr. and Keith Urban also got on stage to perform together. Former host and mentor, Randy Jackson also joined in on the fun. Heck, host Ryan Seacrest even did his best to sing a tune. More »

‘American Idol’ Recap: Jena Irene & Caleb Johnson Rock Out

The buildup of an entire season has led us all to this week, with the remaining two contestants, Caleb Johnson and Jena Irene duking it out in a final round of songs live from Los Angeles. On Tuesday night (May 20), each kid is tasked with singing three songs. The first is a selection from American Idol creator Simon Fuller. The second is the contestant’s choice, with Jena and Caleb selecting their favorite song from a previous performance.

For the occasion, host Ryan Seacrest is decked out in a white tuxedo jacket, black bow tie and pants. The two finalists emerge onto the stage, each looking very much like rock stars. The judges, not to be outdone, are also looking fabulous with Jennifer Lopez in a leather and sparkle dress and her hair done up like Brigitte Bardot in her heyday. Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr. are looking fancy in jackets and big smiles.

We get a flashback clip of Jena asking Caleb to prom. This prompts Idol to film a throwback prom vignette. Despite myself, I find it quite cute. I hope they actually do go to prom together. More »

‘American Idol’ Recap: Jena Irene & Caleb Johnson Advance To Finals, Alex Preston Departs

This was the second to last week of American Idol, with next week’s finale scheduled to take place at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles. Wednesday night, the top three contestants, Jena Irene, Caleb Johnson and Alex Preston, sang three different songs in the hopes to earn a final shot at the grand title. Thursday evening (May 15), all of America learned the identity of the final two singers remaining, and we were treated to a performance from Season 10 winner, Scotty McCreery.

To open the show, host, Ryan Seacrest enters the stage with his new beautiful, black puppy named Georgia, whom he quickly passes off to a handler off stage. The top three contestants look pained as they sit in the lounge waiting for the results show to commence. Our beloved judges arrive, Keith Urban looking rock and roll in his signature leather jacket, t-shirt and jeans. Harry Connick Jr.‘s all dressed up in a suit and Jennifer Lopez is a bedazzled dream in a tight-fitting Pucci dress and a braided updo. More »

‘American Idol’ Recap: The Chainsmokers Take A “#Selfie” & The Top 3 Perform

Wednesday night (May 14) represented a milestone for American Idol, as it was the 500th episode of the long-running series. The top three finalists were tasked with singing three different songs for the occasion, each selected from a different source. The first round is a choice from former judge and mentor Randy Jackson, followed by a hometown selection, then the final song is the judges’ pick.

The episode starts with a montage of wacky moments from the history of the series. From there, the top three contestants emerge, looking more excited than nervous somehow. Caleb Johnson is suffering from a vocal chord hemorrhage but they weirdly bring a doctor to the stage to give him the public go-ahead.

The judges arrive and Jennifer Lopez looks like a beautiful mermaid. Fellow judge Harry Connick Jr. calls it out, dubbing her #MermaidPrincess. From there, we see footage of all the contestants returning home to parades, tons of fans and lots of family. More »

After achieving her dream of making it onto the Broadway stage, Rachel Berry quickly had a new dream to conquer the small screen and promptly took a meeting with a network in Los Angeles to lock down a development deal. That’s right, folks, after all that buildup about the New York City theater scene she’s been longing for all these years, Rachel has already decided to cash it all in for a shot at conquering Tinseltown.

‘American Idol’ Recap: Top 3 Revealed & Jessica Meuse Returns To Slapout

After a Wednesday evening in which the four finalists performed three songs each for the night, the Thursday night American Idol results show (May 8) reminds us just how close the season is to coming to an end. The theme of Wednesday night’s songs was love and each song was inspired by a makeup, a dedication and a breakup. Ultimately, it was one unfortunate contestant with whom America decided to break up. And it was definitely a tearful farewell for that sad soul, who just wasn’t able to make it far enough to enjoy a hero’s welcome at the hometown themed episode next week.

The show opened with what has now become a familiar scene this season, the remaining finalists gathered around a dinner table discussing the prior night’s performances. The kids chat with each other like old friends and profess their love before leaving the table to learn of their fate. It’s easy to completely breeze past the fact that there are two people sitting at the table who chose not to save Sam Woolf. #NeverForget #Betrayal. More »
