When the American Idol judges rose to their feet at the end of Amber Holcomb’s questionable rendition of “MacArthur Park” last Wednesday, it was clear something was amiss. Either they’d collectively suffered a significant degree of hearing loss — or they’d been made aware of some fine print in their contracts noting they were obligated to cheerlead on behalf of Nigel Lythgoe’s Chosen Ones (TM).

If there’s any other explanation, my Idology cohost Melinda Doolittle and I are at a loss to come up with it. On this week’s show, we examine how Keith Urban, Nicki Minaj and Randy Jackson all gave critiques of Candice Glover and Kree Harrison that had no basis in reality, while Amber got a free pass for missing notes on the aforementioned Donna Summer disco track and for choosing a dated Celine Dion cover in the Contestant’s Choice round.

Plus, we dish Angie Miller’s top-notch rendition of a Jessie J ditty, have a laugh about Nicki’s inability to tell the difference between the contestants whose names start with ‘A,’ and wonder whether Randy Jackson’s “church girl” comments to Candice might’ve been racist — or at least offensive.
