Blake Lewis: 'Lauren Has My Vote But Scotty Will Take It Home'

The Nokia Theater was crazy yesterday. As an 'Idol' returning to the finale show, it is always so much fun to see past contestants, friends, and producers we have all had the pleasure to know and work with. I love the AI family vibe when there's a finale. My day started at 9am doing the radio remotes with all the major pop radio stations in the nation. Good times!!! When I arrived at the Nokia...

Blake Lewis: 'Scotty Slayed It, Haley Sang From Her Soul'

Holy Top 3 'American Idol!!!' I remember when I went home for my "homecoming celebration" during the Top 3. It was nuts! It was super intense coming home - seeing all these fans you reached week in and week out and finally getting the chance to meet them. Very surreal and exciting. It looked pretty crazy for the contestants this year, too, but they really didn't show much of them going home....

Blake Lewis: 'J.Lo and Randy Were Unnecessarily Harsh With Haley Reinhart'

The night started out nice. People usually arrive at my place around 8:30–9PM and we get the party started. This time my DVR box really didn't want us to watch 'Idol.' I was pissed! It kept glitching out every two seconds during some of the performances. Oh well! We set the computer on a stool and plugged it into my stereo system as a quick fix. We only got to watch the performances and a...

Blake Lewis: 'I Don't Want to Talk About Anyone But Haley'

Last night was the first time I actually had to rewind a performance and watch it over and over again. Haley killed it on 'Idol!!!' I don't really even want to talk about anybody else. Her journey from the beginning of the show to now has been fantastic. I wasn't a huge fan when the season began, but within the last four weeks Haley's completely changed my mind, as she continues bringing her A...

Blake Lewis: 'Haley and Casey Have Great Chemistry, James Has My Vote'

Top 6 Whaaat?! (Said in a Randy Jackson tone). Last night's show was a Carole King sing along. Ms. King has an incredible songbook and the Idols tore down the house with some of them. I was really impressed with three people -- James, Haley and Casey. Each of their performances was unique. James got my vote, last night, singing "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow." It was beautiful and J.Lo...

Blake Lewis: 'Haley Reinhart Has My Vote' on 'American Idol'

Last night, I had a bunch of fellow Idols over for the show. My girl, Jordin Sparks made her way over, Kim Caldwell, Brandon Rogers, Didi Benami, Todrick Hall, Antonella Barba, Paul Kim, Alex Lambert and Michael Johns. We all had a blast watching the show. We were loud, fighting over which performances we liked (most of the time it wasn't a fight, as we all agreed). It was awesome! Some past...

Blake Lewis: 'Paul McDonald Was Spot-On, Lauren Alaina Reminds Me of Jordin Sparks'

"You must be...the most beautiful girl in the world," I'm singing to J.Lo from my couch. 'American Idol' started out praising J.Lo's new 'People' magazine cover for 'Most Beautiful Woman in the World.' I must say...yes, she is one of the best. Now to business. Last night, the contestants chose songs from our favorite movies. Paul McDonald was spot on with his version of "Old Time Rock and...

Blake Lewis: 'Lauren Alaina Is a Firecracker, Pia Toscano Brought the Goods!'

It was a night of rock and roll on 'Idol,' and I was pumped for it. I really enjoyed last week and now that it's down to nine contestants, the show is starting to have a better flow. will.i.am was mentoring all of the contestant's rehearsals and he was funny and had some great suggestions for most of them. Jacob Lusk started the night singing "Man in the Mirror" by Michael Jackson (rest in...

Blake Lewis: 'Casey Abrams Killed It, I'm Over Scotty McCreery'

Casey is back on top. Last night, the Idols performed the music of Elton John and I was really looking forward to it, as my friends and some former contestants came over to watch. The night started off with Scotty McCreery doing his country thing and it was all right. I'm personally over it and I want him to go now. He did a good job, I'm just not that into him compared to the other ten...

Blake Lewis: 'Pia Toscano, It's Time for a Shocker'

Motown, baby!!!!! Last night on 'Idol' it was all Motown, the legend of Berry Gordy. I was really excited because this season of 'American Idol' has some of the greatest vocalists with soul! I am really, really enjoying 'Idol' this year, and last night did not disappoint. Casey Abrams opened it up with "I Heard It Through the Grapevine." I thought it was a perfect choice, but like I say...
