PopWatch Planner: 'Star Trek Into Darkness,' TV finales, and more

TV finale season is in full swing this week, with endings served up on ScandalGrey’s Anatomy, and The Vampire Diaries, among others. But the most important entertainment event is arguably the box office bow of a new Star Trek movie — especially when the newest one is called Star Trek Into Darkness and comes studio-sealed in secrecy and trench coats in the form of Benedict Cumberbatch’s deep-voiced baddie.

That and oh-so-much more for the week ahead, below.


Adam Lambert and Frank Ocean are honored at GLAAD Media Awards

Adam Lambert and Frank Ocean both won trophies at last night’s GLAAD Media Awards in San Francisco. Melanie Brown from the Spice Girls presented the onetime American Idol-er with the Davidson/Valenti Award which is given to a member of the LGBT community who has made a significant difference in promoting equal rights. Meanwhile, Lambert and Ocean tied in the category of Outstanding Musical Artist. Other awards went to the film Any Day Now and to writer Marc Lamont Hill for his article, “Why Aren’t We Fighting for CeCe McDonald?


Randy Jackson's top 10 'American Idol' legacies

Randy Jackson — who’s officially departing American Idol — gets a bad rep. Just look at him up there. Clearly he has the most productive things to say on the season 12 judging panel! Below, my half-assed tribute to an inflated animal balloon (the producers made me do it!):

Yo, You Feel Me? 10 Things Randy Jackson Always Did Beautifully #InItToWinIt

10. Created Catchphrases: It’s a Comeback Kid story for the ages: The Dawg somehow overcame a severely limited vocabulary to conjure up gorgeous nonsense words and phrases — “Pitchy!” “You can sing the phone book!” “Blow it out the box!” “For me, for you!” — that would flourish for years (due to Randy’s refusal to quit saying them).

'American Idol' Top 3: Candice, Angie, or Kree?

According to the all-powerful Jimmy Iovine, Angie Miller (center) won tonight’s first round (Jimmy’s Choice), Kree Harrison (right) won the second (Judges’ Choice), and Candice Glover won the third (Producers’ Choice). But Candice’s soulful rendition of “Somewhere” was so transcendent, he said, that she flat-out won the entire night. READ FULL STORY

'American Idol': Name your Top 3 Power List...

Tonight the Top 3 — Candice Glover (left), Angie Miller, and Kree Harrison — take on three songs: Jimmy Iovine’s Choice, Judges’ Choice, and Idol‘s Choice. THEY’RE ALL IN IT TO WIN IT, RYAN! My Power List is below — leave your own in the comments…. READ FULL STORY

'American Idol': Name your Top 4 Power List...

….AGAIN! Has your ranking changed since last week?

Despite the judges’ manipulative efforts to convince viewers Amber Holcomb is both a “current. hot. NOW.” superstar and their new best friend, she still landed in the bottom two along with Candice Glover. Will top-two vote-getters Kree Harrison and Angie Miller suffer from fans assuming they’re safe?

Who should judge 'American Idol'?

We all should, really, for being so LAME. As rumored this week, Idol may shake up its entire judging panel next season in an effort to boost ratings. It’s getting beaten in the adult demo by repeats of The Big Bang Theory and a fresh-from-the-swamp ep of Duck Dynasty. Oof. Does the show even matter anymore? It’s, like, way existential.

'American Idol': Did Angie Miller win Top 4 night?

The final four ladies — Angie Miller (pictured), Amber Holcomb, Candice Glover, and Kree Harrison — performed a song of their own choosing and then a “one hit wonder,” which apparently called for a time warp. Nothing from later than the ’70s! In it to win it tonight! “I think you’re so current and so now,” Randy Jackson lied through his teeth to Amber after she sang “MacArthur Park.” It was the judges’ most manipulative night yet, which is saying a LOT.

Full ‘American Idol’ recap: The Judges Lie 23 Times

The judges claimed Angie won the night, criticized Candice for being old-fashioned, and demanded more from Kree — beautiful vocals are not enough. Meanwhile, Amber is the girl Nicki Minaj would most like to be friends with. Just in case you were on the edge of your seat wondering whom to vote for in this singing competition.

Who sang best tonight? Check out the song list below…. READ FULL STORY

'American Idol' 2013: Name your Top 4 Power List!

It’s hard to rank the all-very-deserving final four, as each has her own unique singing style. At this point the competition boils down to personal taste. I keep wondering how much sway the judges and their rampant standing Os really have. Last week they seemed to be gunning the hardest for Kree Harrison and Amber Holcomb — but both have now landed in the bottom two, while Angie Miller and Candice Glover haven’t.

'American Idol': Thoughts on Top 5's Divas Night?

Tonight, Idol did its best to downplay the reign of Candice Glover — she sang powerfully, but the judges raved more about both of Kree Harrison’s songs as well as the second offerings of Angie Miller and Amber Holcomb. Janelle Arthur no longer exists.

During the first round, Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey engaged in a tedious tiff re: who was disagreeing with whom (no one, really, since the judges’ comments are blending together at this point), which was perhaps appropriate as tonight was DIVA NIGHT — full recap here. Nicki made sure to politely pay homage to Mariah’s royal status in round two. READ FULL STORY
