Taylor Flirts With 'Idol' Alum Ace Young at Daughter's Party on 'Real Housewives' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 22nd 2011 2:30AM
Ace Young, 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'Taylor and Russell certainly spared no expense for Kennedy's fifth birthday on 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' (Mon., 9PM ET on Bravo). It's a good thing the cameras were rolling, too, because I certainly don't remember my fifth birthday party.

If you're going so far as to have a former 'American Idol' alum write a song for her, you want her to be able to remember it. Or at least stick in the DVD and rewatch it.

Taylor seemed to enjoy Ace Young's presence at the festivities even more than she loves his song -- and she cried the first time she heard that. "If you were any cuter," she started. "You're killing me right now!"

American Idols on Broadway - Who's Hit the Great White Way?

by AOL TV Staff, posted Feb 4th 2010 6:34PM
After nine inspiring, crazy, unpredictable seasons on the air, the only thing certain is that even an appearance on 'American Idol' can launch you toward off-the-charts success.

For a performer of any kind to make it to Broadway, though, you need more in your quiver than arrows pointing to image or personality. You need the solid, confident, cultivated talent that not only catapults a song across the footlights, but the chops to do it eight times a week. Acting ability, imagination, perseverance -- these are all key. The 'Idol' contestants and winners who have starred on the Great White Way know this. After all, if you've survived week after week, facing and conquering new musical challenges over and over, you're probably in good enough shape to make Broadway your home.

Quite a few 'Idol' favorites have come to the New York stage. Some stay for months, eating up the adoration of fans. Some are jazzed by the rigor of playing a role night after night. Some job in for a spell, then spearhead national tours, able to sing for the public wherever they live. However they do it, performing on Broadway is a mark of pride and distinction for nine 'Idol' favorites -- with the 10th set to arrive, we hope, later this year.<

Finally, months after the episode was completed, we will get to see the two Idol finalist perform both on and off the stage on Bones.

Melinda DoolittleHey all you Idol maniacs. Want to know where your favorite Idol contestants past and present will be making appearances? Of course you do. You've already got the RV packed, notes to the kids' schools written explaining their prolonged absences and a case of Funyuns jammed underneath the passenger seat. You're a member of the Soul Patrol, a Clayniac and are still suffering from McPheever. Oh you've got it bad.

But MJ's Big Blog has what you need. No more aimless driving around America shouting "Can anyone tell me where Gina Glocksen is performing tonight?" or "Has anyone seen Jessica Sierra, she still owes me bail money?" Now you can go to one place and plan your journey like the Deadheads before you. Now you can follow Ace Young as he travels around various Borders signing Chicken Soup for the American Idol Soul, and you can catch Diana DeGarmo at the Braves opener. Oh, and if you're in Atlanta at Kroger tonight, look up Melinda Doolittle, buy some ice cream and tell her I said "Hi."

AOL users recently nominated their picks for the sexiest 'Idol' ever, and we're counting down the top 10.

Two American Idol contestants to guest star on Bones

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Dec 13th 2007 9:51PM
BonesAs we reported in our November 11 edition of Spoilers Anonymous, an upcoming episode of FOX's Bones will have an American Idol-theme. Who better than some real Idol contestants to play the guest roles of, wait for it, contestants taking part in a singing competition? That's exactly what the casting crew behind the show thought!

At least two American Idol contestants, one from season 5 and the other from season 6, will guest star in an episode titled "The Wannabe in the Weeds" (as you can guess, the dead character will surely be a contestant and the body will be found in... weeds). The episode, slated to air in March according to some sources, is the last episode of the series completed before production was shut down due to the writers' strike.

'Idol' finalists get recording contracts

by Anna Johns, posted Jun 6th 2006 8:22AM
ace young; chris daughtryShocking news from the world of American Idol. While Taylor Hicks was the first to sign his recording contract because he actually won the contest, a handful of the other finalists are right behind him with recording contracts of their own. According to TMZ.com, RCA Music Group (which signs all the Idols) has already signed runner-up Katharine McPhee and is reportedly in negotiations with Chris Daughtry and Ace Young. Third placer Elliott Yamin is reportedly being wooed by Hollywood management company The Firm.

At this point, I'd say it's a crapshoot. Who can guess which contestant will be most successful? So far, the only really successful non-winner seems to be Clay Aiken, who sued to break away from the Idol contract. And the only really successful winner is Kelly Clarkson, and that's because she split from 19 Entertainment, the management company that mis-manages all the Idol winners.

Randy's return and Taylor's tics

by Anna Johns, posted Apr 28th 2006 9:01PM
american idol logoTwo bits of news in the world of American Idol tonight. First, Randy Jackson has signed on to three move years on Idol. He signed the same kind of deal that Paula recently agreed to. Simon, on the other hand, is in it for the long haul: his new contract extends for five more years.

In other Idol news, don't download any Taylor Hicks-themed screensavers off the internet. Unless you like computer viruses. A web-trolling company, SiteAdvisor.com, recently discovered that 46% of Taylor's downloadable screensavers contain spyware and led to outbreaks of pop-up ads and spam. Ace Young screensavers are also full of bugs- the company estimates 36% of them also have spyware.

American Idol: The night of the bad arrangements

by Anna Johns, posted Apr 26th 2006 2:20AM
american idol logoDid anybody else think Ryan Seacrest's high-collared shirt looked like he just returned from a shift as a Candy Striper at the hospital? He just threw on a jacket and tie and showed up to host American Idol. By the way, did you think there was tension between Seacrest and Paula? Yeah, I didn't see it either.

When I saw that Andrea Bocelli and his producer, David Foster, were going to be on the show, I thought that seemed like an odd match. It turns out, it was. Very odd. Bocelli didn't really seem to help the contestants much and his producer only butchered their songs. The complicated arrangements did weed out the professional singers from the weak ones (ahem, Kellie Pickler).

Ace says: don't blame the ponytail!

Ace YoungInstead, he says, blame "fate."

Yeah, OK, not his song selection or his performance or the fans, but that ever vague, mysterious thing known as "fate."

Actually, as I've said before, I don't think Ace should have been voted out last week. It was clearly Kellie's night to go. But Americans who voted all had anuerysms disagreed, and now she's around for another week. But she won't win. "Fate" will catch up to her (plus, she looks too much like Carrie Underwood, who won last year).

American Idol: Ace Folds, Chris Hits Bottom

by Lacy Hall, posted Apr 20th 2006 9:09AM

ai logoI'm not shocked at Ace getting the boot. His number has been up since he couldn't top "Father Figure." (Ugh, that was like the first week, right? And did you notice that Queen was not in his "Bad Day" montage? Ha ha ha!) But Chris in the bottom 3?!?!?! I suppose that America is to blame. We let him down. That's what Paula is going to tell us next Tuesday, I'm sure. But, I guess we are to blame. I didn't vote for Chris last night. I felt sorry for Ace, so I voted for him. It was a sympathy vote that I wish I could take back. I figured that Chris would slip into the bottom 3 at least once (before triumphantly winning this whole thing), but not until a later date. I know this sounds silly, and only confirms my complete absorption into AI addiction, but I felt a little bit nauseas when I saw Chris standing there next to Ace. The mere thought of Chris going home prematurely made me want to throw up. So, that confirms it -- I'm officially a member of Team Chris. I'm pledging my allegiance right now.

American Idol: Good Songs, Bad Outfits

But never before did I realize how many times the chorus is repeated in older songs. It had to be you. It had to be you. It had to be you. But they are beautiful songs. But the outfits were ugly.

Not Rod, of course. He always looks sexy in his skinny, high-water suits. But Chris...

American Idol: The Bucky Stops Here

by Lacy Hall, posted Apr 13th 2006 1:06AM

ai logoThis week's Results Show should have been renamed Make Everybody's Parents Cry Show because that's what it was. I was actually confused at first -- why were the contestants crying at their parents videos? It's not like they are on Survivor and don't get to see them every week. Heck, half of their parents are in the audience every night. They probably see their family more than I get to see mine. Then, I thought maybe they were crying at hearing their parents say such nice things about them. But that doesn't make sense because parents always gush over their kids. Even when their kids sorta suck. Then, I realized that they were crying because they are all physically and mentally exhausted. They are crying 'cause they just want to go home...but not really.

But Bucky is going home. I think that he's a great guy, but no way was he ever going to become the next American Idol. So, I don't really shed too many tears for Bucky. Ace and Elliott were the other two at the bottom. But what was weird about tonight was that I honestly think Ace was convinced that he was going home. Absolutely convinced of it. And, I was a little bit worried when Elliott was brought into the bottom three and asked to sing on the spot. For a moment, I thought that it was going to be some sort of wacky Idol trick where they just eliminated him on the spot. Luckily, they just had an hour of television to kill.

Next week, Rod Stewart takes over. Notify your moms and aunts, 'cause you know they love him. Love him.
