American Idols LiveTickets to the 2012 version of American Idols Live! go on sale this Friday May 11th, 2012 at 10:00 AM.  For years, American Idol has been the #1 rated television show in the nation.  This year has been no exception as this season contestant are regularly referred to as the “best ever”.  While that high praise has mostly come from the surprisingly positive judges Randy Jackson, Jennifer Lopez, and Steven Tyler there is no doubt this years contestants are uber talented.  Legendary producer Jimmie Iovine has been a little more critical but largely agrees with the judges.  So, when is American Idol going to name Jimmie Iovine a judge?  He is the only one these days capable of honestly judging the contestants these days!

The American Idol Tour will feature the top 10 finalists featured on this years show.  The 2012 American Idols Live Tour will showcase the talents of Christian rocker Colton Dixon, the ever-flamboyant DeAndre Brackensick, throwback rocker chick Elise Testone, Erika Van Pelt, funnyman Heejun Han, pop princess Hollie Cavanagh, diva in training Jessica Sanchez, the soulful Joshua Ledet, the Dave Matthewsesque Phillip Phillips and county cutie Skylar Laine.  The show is down to the final four:  Hollie Cavanagh, Jessica Sanchez, Joshua Ledet, and Phil Philips.  It will be interesting to see who prevails as there is certainly not a clear front runner.  Who do you think will be…the “next American Idol”?

Top Weekend Events Septemeber 23 – 25

Hooray Wednesday!

I’m going to go ahead and call it that the summer concert season is officially dead.  In its place, officially, is College Football!

There are certainly some exciting games this weekend!  The top game everyone seems to want to attend is the West Virginia vs. Louisiana State game.  These two teams are competitively matched.  LSU has an absolute top notch defense, but the Mountaineer’s quarterback, Geno Smith, is a formidable opponent.

The Fight Irish vs. Panthers game is surely another tough call on who would win.  Pitt’s offense and defense have a good balance, but is it enough to show up Notre Dame?

Colorado is expected to sweep Ohio State, particularly with their star QB, Tyler Hansen, and RB Rodney Stewart.

Boise State is certainly another team to keep a keen eye on.  Since the Broncos near slaughter of the Georgia Bulldogs at the start of the season, they’re on a fast track in the national title race.   QB, Kellen Moore, is one of the best and most effectual quarterbacks currently playing in the NCAA and is expected to shatter multiple records, including most touchdowns and most wins.

For your non-football related activities this week, the hot one is definitely the 3-day i Heart Radio Festival in Las Vegas.  The festival will feature top acts like LADY GAGA ,  JAY-Z , COLDPLAY , STEVEN TYLER, THE BLACK EYED PEAS,  KENNY CHESNEY, ALICIA KEY,  JENNIFER LOPEZ, CARRIE UNDERWOOD, JANE’S ADDICTION, NICKI MINAJ , DAVID GUETTA, RASCAL FLATTS, BRUNO MARS, KELLY CLARKSON, SUBLIME WITH ROME With special guest performances by USHER, STING and JEFF BECK.  It is one FULL line-up!!

Jeff Dunham is in the same field as Terry Fator.  They are both master ventriloquistsTime Magazine wrote about his puppet characters, “All of them are politically incorrect, gratuitously insulting and ill tempered.”
