'Idolatry': A final-four discussion turns...violent?

Posted on

Oh yes, American Idol addicts! Today’s Idolatry episode earns the subtitle “The one where violence erupts on the set!” But that’s how intense things are getting now that season 8 is down to only four contestants: Danny Gokey, Allison Iraheta, Kris Allen, and Adam Lambert. So do press play below, where my cohost, Life.com‘s Dawnie Walton, and I discuss why Kris shouldn’t snap his fingers, what we enjoyed about Matt Giraud’s Idol run, and how a bottom-two appearance by Adam might be just what Idol (and the contestant himself) needed. Oh, and look for hidden gems from Melinda Doolittle, Fantasia and Run Lola Run. If that’s not enough reason to press play, then two words for you: “Bonus Anoop.” Woot!
