I’m going to make this short and sweet for now as I have to head out for a birthday dinner. Until I write my commentary, check out all the performances on the American Idol series finale. It was an epic trip down memory lane with all the original judges reuniting for one last time. Check out all the action below. I’ll upload missing vids later.

The end is almost here. American Idol bids adieu in just a couple of weeks. Hopefully, the network plans to send the show off in style. After all, the singing competition did chance the face of television.

FOX begins the three-night extravaganza with a 90-minute retrospective titled American Idol: American Dream on Tuesday, April 5. It’ll feature Ryan Seacrest, judges including Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and more, along with alums walking down memory lane to share their personal memories and tell never-before revealed stories.

The two-night finale then starts on April 6 with the show crowning its final Idol on April 7 live from the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. The big Thursday show will feature group and solo performances from a whackload of former contestants including Kelly Clarkson, Daughtry, Carrie Underwood and Fantasia.

I’m personally looking forward to seeing LaToya London, Kimberley Locke, Tamyra Gray and Jessica Sanchez the most. They even have Sanjaya on deck. Sadly, Jennifer Hudson isn’t included in the list. What’s up with that? Check out the lineup below.

Carrie Underwood Covers ‘I Will Always Love You’

Before I get to her killer cover, can we just talk about how Carrie Underwood hasn’t made an appearance on American Idol this season yet? Fantasia, Ruben Studdard, Chris Daughtry, Jordin Sparks and the OG Idol, Kelly Clarkson, have all stopped by for the singing competition’s farewell season. Fingers crossed the 33-year-old country superstar is scheduled to appear on the finale. It wouldn’t be a proper send-off if one of the show’s biggest discoveries didn’t appear.

During an appearance on the Bobby Bones Show, Carrie delivered a stellar cover of “I Will Always Love You.” It’s a hybrid of the sweet original composition sung by Dolly Parton and the rousing rendition by Whitney Houston. Her sweet and powerful version is truly fantastic. Check it out below.

PS. Happy Birthday Carrie. She turns 33 today on March 10.

Adam Samberg and his comedy group, The Lonely Island, are targeting a huge popstar for their first feature film. And brilliantly I might add. Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping looks hilarious and appears to be a must-see movie this summer.

In the mockumentary, Samberg plays a singer/rapper named Conner4Real, obviously based on Justin Bieber and his 2011 concert film, Never Say Never. He even names his fans, the Connfidants. Just like The Biebs, Connor faces a crisis of popularity after an album flops, leaving his fans, sycophants and rivals all wondering what to do when he’s no longer the dopest star of all.

The Judd Apatow-directed film boasts a bunch of cameos including Adam Levine, Carrie Underwood, Simon Cowell, Usher, Pink, Seal, Snoop Dogg and a whack of Saturday Night Live alums. Question is, will Justin be a good sport and make a surprise appearance in the film? Fingers crossed.

Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping arrives in theaters on June 3. Check out the hilarious trailer below.

top-earning-idol-in-2015

With American Idol beginning its farewell season, Forbes decided to crunch some numbers to determine the top earning alums to come from the FOX reality show. It’s a bit surprising who topped the list in 2015.

Adam Lambert didn’t even win Season 8 but tops the annual list for the first time. He surpasses Carrie Underwood who held the title the past two years. The Storyteller singer has to settle for second place with $8 million. Poor little rich country girl 😉

According to the publication, Glambert earned an estimated $10 million which mostly came from playing arena shows fronting the legendary rock band Queen. It’s not like The Original High flew off the shelves. None of the album’s tracks, including “Ghost Town,” became hits. It truly is a shame. Definitely underrated.

Surprisingly, Kelly Clarkson tied for fifth place with $4 million. Forbes reveals that only three of her concert shows were eligible during the scoring period of their rankings. Check out the Top 5 below.

Carrie Underwood is hardly the first to take a ride with James Corden. Stevie Wonder, Justin Bieber, Mariah Carey and Jason Derulo are just a few who have ridden shotgun on The Late Late Show. However, my favorite Carpool Karaoke segments always seem to involve an American Idol alum. Jennifer Hudson singing her order at a fast food drive thru still cracks me up til this day. Carrie’s turn is equally as fun.

The 32-year-old country superstar, as expected, duets with Corden on several of her biggest hits including “Jesus Take The Wheel,” “Smoke Break” and “Before He Cheats” to name a few. Underwood also takes the Brit to a western store to pick out a pair of boots and cowboy hat. However, it’s their fun cover of Wham’s “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go” that made me smile the most. Check it out below.

Is it me, or is this woman getting more stunning by the day? Carrie Underwood has it all. Looks, legs, killer voice, adorable baby and most of all, hot hockey hubby. I wanna hate her, but she’s so darn likeable. I digress.

The 32-year-old country singer just unveiled the music video for “Heartbeat,” the latest single off Storyteller.

Underwood saunters about in a mysterious forest during the wee hours of the night. It’s pretty much glamor shots of the American Idol winner rocking some disheveled hair for the entire thing. A bit random, but she looks fantastic. Give it a view below.

Heading into the 43rd annual American Music Awards, The Weeknd and Taylor Swift led the pack with six nominations apiece. The “Hills” singer walked away with two awards while the “Blank Space” chanteuse snagged three statues. Other multiple winners of the night were One Direction, Nicki Minaj and Florida Georgia Line.

As with most music awards show, the telecast was all about the performances. Jennifer Lopez kicked the night off by performing a slowed-down version of her hit “Waiting For Tonight” before pulling an insane dance routine to a mashup featuring the year’s biggest hits. Girl slayed it and then some.

Other memorable performances were Demi Lovato joining Alanis Morissette on “You Oughta Know,” Charlie Puth and Meghan Trainor making out to “Marvin Gaye,” Ariana Grande performing “Focus” without her signature high ponytail, Pentatonix with their Star Wars tribute and Nick Jonas and Justin Bieber each singing a medley of their hits. By far though, the emotional high point was Celine Dion’s tribute to Paris. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house.

Check out all the performances below and share your thoughts on your favorite AMA moment.
