'Dancing With the Stars' Week 8 Elimination (VIDEO)

'Dancing With the Stars' Week 8 EliminationThis week was the Final Five's last chance to impress the judges before next week's semifinals round on 'Dancing With the Stars' (Tue., 9PM ET on ABC). But with America helping to steer the decisions, only J.R. Martinez and Karina Smirnoff likely had a restful night's sleep after the season's first double perfect scores.


Nancy Grace and Tristan MacManus again scored the lowest overall total from the judges, just as they had last week. But whereas last week the gap between Grace and David Arquette was only three points, this week there were seven points separating her from the next lowest scorers, Rob Kardashian and Cheryl Burke.

'The X Factor' Top 12 Recap: Who Was Eliminated? (VIDEO)

The X Factor Judges'The X Factor' just got real.

After weeks of pre-taped auditions and having to abide by the judges' (sometimes questionable) decisions in regards to which acts progressed to the next round, America finally had the chance to weigh in on the top 12 performers.

Since we all know that results shows are 95 percent filler and five percent useful information, let's skip the formalities (except to say that Astro forgot his lyrics and LeRoy Bell was blatantly lip syncing in the opening medley) and get straight to the good stuff.

The first act to be eliminated by America's vote was ...

Susan Boyle Performs, Top 10 Revealed on 'America's Got Talent' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 1st 2011 1:56AM
Susan Boyle, 'America's Got Talent'As one of the most unexpected superstars to come out of 'Britain's Got Talent,' Susan Boyle is an inspiration to anyone seeking success and stardom via a talent competition. So it was completely appropriate and properly uplifting for her to come and perform on 'America's Got Talent' (Wed., 9PM ET on NBC).


While Boyle wasn't as commanding vocally as she has been in the past, she still knows how to command a crowd, and she was able to give that emotional boost the contestants need at this late stage of the competition.

'So You Think You Can Dance' Results: Two More Dancers Eliminated (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 8th 2011 2:25AM
'So You Think You Can Dance'In seasons past, the judges have split up couples in their eliminations, but that hasn't been the case leading into tonight's cuts on 'So You Think You Can Dance' (Thu., 8PM ET on FOX). Each week, they've cut a paired couple, leaving all the other couples intact.

Even in the week when four people were eliminated out of a possible six, they cut two paired couples. That has to add to the pressure when competing as it must feel like your fate may be as tied to how well your partner does than how well you do.

But nothing in the rules says you have to do that, so would it continue as the Top 14 was whittled down to the Top 12? We have some strong couples, but there have been some instances where one partner has clearly shown more promise than the other.

'Dancing With the Stars' Week Six Results: The Eliminated Contestant Is... (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Apr 27th 2011 1:23AM
'Dancing with the Stars' week six resultsIt was a week of "Guilty Pleasures" on 'Dancing with the Stars' (Tue., 8PM ET on ABC). The lowest marks from last night's competition episode came from Chris Jericho and Cheryl Burke, with a combined total of 22 points.

This was two points higher than Ralph Macchio and Karina Smirnoff, who suffered a fall during their Paso Doble. With everyone else scoring combinations of 8s, 9s and 10s, it was a pretty close night from the judges, which put even more responsibility in the hands of America and the vote.


Tom Bergeron narrowed it down to the aforementioned Jericho and Macchio, indicating that the voters at home had sided with the judges. But had they agreed completely on who had the weakest performance and deserved to go home?

'American Idol' Top 7 Results: Who Was Eliminated? (VIDEO)

'American Idol' resultsLast week, Paul McDonald broke the streak of five consecutive girls sent home on 'American Idol' (Thu., 8PM ET on FOX). With only two remaining in the Top Seven, Jennifer Lopez made no bones about not wanting to see a girl go home this week.

When the show brought out the eliminated contestants last week for an opening performance, the gender bias of the season was painfully obvious, as poor McDonald tried to keep up with the five girls on a girl-power song.


When Ryan Seacrest started whittling down the contestants, the favorites stayed out of the line of fire. Of the seven remaining contestants, only three of them have been in the Bottom Three before. And they made up the Bottom Three this week.

'So You Think You Can Dance' Results November 18: Channing Cooke and Kevin Hunte Eliminated

by Sharon Knolle, posted Nov 19th 2009 1:00AM
Two teams were broken up tonight on 'So You Think You Can Dance' as modern dancer Channing Cooke and hip-hopper Kevin Hunte were sent home. Kevin's partner, Karen Hauer, was in tears at the judges' verdict, as was Channing's partner, Victor Smalley. Channing and Kevin looked shocked but forced smiles (what else can you do on national television?) as host Cat Deeley introduced their going-home clips.

Nigel Lythgoe announced that both decisions were unanimous. Channing may have finally "stepped out of her cage" this week, but Lythgoe told her that she was still more of a brilliant technician than performer, while Karen, whom they voted to keep, is "without question a performer and a star this season." Kevin was chastised for appearing "uncomfortable" in his routines. "You're well deserved in our Top 20 but we're looking for growth. Although just by doing the routines, you are growing as a dancer, we still feel as though there is a long way to go."

While those two eliminations were startling, the biggest surprise of the evening had to be that "dream team" Mollee Gray and Nathan Trasoras also ended up in the bottom three. And that the judges, who've been highly critical of them as a couple and individually, voted to keep them.

Dancing with the Stars: Week 2 Results

Lacey and Steve-O(S08E03) With the results of week one, it could go either way. Either a non-contender bites the dust, or someone just doesn't have the fanbase. You can't say that Gilles has no fanbase after two really strong performances.

The recap show somehow managed to squeeze 26 performances in an hour. I now realize how much time I've wasted having to sit through Samantha Harris. Along with the results, and 30 minutes of other filler, Jewel performed. I'm sure someone out there was giving her the evil glare. The results after the jump.

What was the best and worst of television last season?

by Anna Johns, posted Jun 19th 2007 2:20PM
hugh laurie; houseAOL recently conducted a poll of readers to find out what they thought was the best and worst of television last season. More than 3 million votes were counted! They had to answer 20 questions about their favorite dramas, comedies, reality shows, and Sanjaya hairstyles. I don't necessarily agree with all the results, but that's okay. It's still interesting to see what got people excited last season.

Here are just a few of the results, to see the full list, click here:

Best Drama: House
Best Comedy: Ugly Betty
Best Reality: American Idol
Best Cliffhanger: Lost
Best Villain: Ben, from Lost

A cure for our 'Idol' boredom?

by Jon Peter Lewis, posted Apr 12th 2007 2:01PM

Jon Peter LewisOh man, not one, but two celebrity guests tonight. Uh, how were we so lucky? That means a full hour show...

You'd think a ten percent ratings drop from last year would motivate them to keep it simple, but Idol's sixth season is still picking up new fans and continuing to find new ways to keep us entertained -- even when that means morphing into something other than the beloved original format.

I wonder if turning American Idol into a variety show is a good thing? No longer is it only a singing show but also a telethon for the needy, an outlet for songwriters and a place where celebrities go to sell a few CDs and pretend they sing better than the contestants. All they need now is a stand-up comic and a cooking segment.

Chris and Lakisha? Can it be?!

Lakisha JonesIt's been accurate during every round of the Top 12 phase (even predicting Chris Sligh's surprise ouster), but if the AOL 'American Idol' poll is right, this week's results episode is gonna be one for the books.

Front-runner and judge favorite Lakisha Jones and Justin Timberlake knock-off Chris Richardson should dust off their Samsonite. They are the bottom-two finalists in the poll after last night's Gloria Estefan fest. The two have been swapping last-place rankings in the results line-up all day.

Chris Sligh: "I almost dropped out" of Idol

by Geoff Bennett, posted Mar 29th 2007 4:41PM

Chris SlighIn his day-after exit interview, former 'American Idol' contestant Chris Sligh revealed he almost dropped out of the competition two weeks ago because of artistic differences.

"I never came into this wanting to win it. I come from an indie / alternative rock kind of background," Sligh told TV reporters during a conference call. "For me, I think winning would hurt what I was really going for."

After the judges criticized his arrangement of the Diana Ross classic "Endless Love," said Sligh: "I went to the guy from 19 [Entertainment] and said, 'If I drop out, can I still go on tour?' And they were like, 'No, you have to get voted out.' So I was like, 'Well, we'll see what happens.'"

Dancing with the stars: Week 4 Results show

by Brett Love, posted Oct 5th 2006 7:09AM
Vivica & Nick(S03E08) OK, I officially have no idea what is going on with the voting anymore. It would be nice if we actually got to see how everyone ended up, top to bottom, week to week. Then we could get out the slide rules and extrapolate some factors, maybe figure out just how that fan vote is going. Clearly it is playing a huge role.

Anyway... another long and drawn out results show. Willa and Maksim get the encore. I suspected it would be Mario, but nothing wrong with giving Willa the nod. They were very good this week. That was followed up by a performance by Los Lonely Boys, or as I like to think of them, the good band that was on the show this week.

Why only a quick summary? Because haven't the creators of this show put you through enough hours of recapping this show already?

American Inventor: Sackmaster, In Brella, Catch Vest

american inventor(S01E06) Tonight was actually two episodes, but to be honest with you, I didn't even bother sitting through the first one. Why? Because I already saw many of them once, and they weren't all that worth sitting through yet again. And to see more, ones that weren't good enough to show us the first time? No thanks.

I do have one question, though -- whatever happened to those singer dudes who had that nut/shell ashtray thing? They seemed very sure they'd "be famous again," so what happened? I think that was the last we saw of it. Oh well guys, good luck with that fame thing.

Anyway, onto the first finalist round.
