Two of our favorite American Idol finalists give HollywoodLife.com an intimate look at the drama that goes on behind-the-scenes!
Are Lee Dewyze and Siobhan Magnus an item? Does Crystal Bowersox REALLY have a thing for Casey James? We’ve been dying to know how the Idols really feel — and we FINALLY got the inside scoop! Watch our exclusive video interview with the uniquely fabulous Siobhan Magnus and R&B powerhouse ‘Big Mike’ Lynche to hear all about the relationship drama you didn’t see on TV!

Crystal Bowersox and her ‘musical crush’ Lee DeWyze are in the finale on American Idol — but why would these two pals have a beef?
You called it, America! You’ve long predicted a Crystal Bowersox/Lee DeWyze showdown in the season finale, and last night you were proved right when sexy Casey James got the boot. But these two BFFs — who seemed genuinely stoked that they’d be facing off against one another — ever dislike the other?
The latest contestant to get the boot from American Idol confirms that she and Lee DeWyze DO have something special — they’re BFFs!
I witnessed some sweet emotion going on between Lee DeWyze and Siobhan Magnus after she was voted off American Idol April 28, and was right to assume the two have an uncommon bond. However, Siobhan says that the two are simply besties —but my guess is Lee wants way more!
“I am especially close with Lee,” the 20-year-old Marstons Mills, Mass. native said during an Idol conference call April 29. “We all formed such a strong friendship, but [I bonded with] Lee in particular. We clicked. I was so glad to have him there.”
Friends or BF and GF? Siobhan took some serious comfort in Lee’s arms after getting voted off Idol last night!
I was shocked that Siobhan Magnus was sent packing from American Idol April 28 for her rendition of Shania Twain’s “Any Man of Mine” — but I wasn’t half as dismayed as the judges’ golden boy Lee DeWyze. The dude was so unhappy that he looked like he was going to cry…but what else is new? Get the behind-the-scenes scoop on Lee & Siobhan HERE!
American Idol’s fan favorite Crystal Bowersox was boring with a capital B during Shania Twain week, and I’m afraid she might go home tonight!
Believe it or not, every single contestant brought their A-game to the American Idol stage last night — every single contestant but my favorite, Crystal Bowersox, that is. One word comes to mind when I think about the 24-year-old Elliston, Ohio native’s rendition of Shania Twain’s “No One Needs to Know” April 27 — TIRED. Read more, watch & VOTE!
Casey, your rendition of Shania Twain’s “Don’t” was so impressive that Blake says it sounded like it had been written specifically for you!
Hot damn! HollywoodLife.com’s very own American Idol judge, Blake Lewis, has some high praise for sexy rocker Casey James this week! “This song sounded like it was written just for him!” the 28-year-old season six runner-up says. “He should look into recording this for his album!”
This Idol hopeful is so famous in New England that one restaurant even named a sandwich in her honor!
You know you’ve hit the big time when you’ve got food named after you! It’s only natural that one Cape Cod restaurant would has dubbed a sandwich — the “Siobhan Madness Sandwich’, in fact — in Siobhan Magnus’ honor!
So what’s in this beast? Nothing TOO crazy…
It’s going to be a real challenge for American Idol’s sexy rocker to pull off Shania Twain’s brand of country pop — but I’m still pulling for him!
It is going to take a miracle for Casey James to pull off singing a Shania Twain song tonight on American Idol.
Shania’s music — while entertaining — is a hard sell for a real man. Her tunes are all about love, emotion and longing…and when I think of Casey all I think is: ‘sex’ (and you can’t confuse THAT with love)! Read more & VOTE!
When in doubt, Crystal Bowersox, go for The Pretenders. But dear god, whatever you do, avoid Celine Dion at all costs!
It’s ‘Inspirational Song’ week on American Idol – and you know what that means. Yup, a lot of heartfelt warbling and Celine Dion impersonations. That said, I hope that this week’s mentor, Alicia Keys, firmly tells the remaining Idols to stay far, far away from Celine and her diva counterparts Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston. Get my picks & weigh in with your own!
There are still seven contestants left on Idol, but experts say it’s going to come down to Lee & Crystal!
Unless you’ve been wearing earmuffs while watching American Idol this season, it should be pretty clear to you that Crystal Bowersox, 24, is the most fawned-over singer on the show, and the favorite to make it to the finale in May. Homesickness almost made her call it quits last week, but thankfully Ryan Seacrest convinced her to stay and fight for the #1 title. That coveted second spot is still up for grabs, though, and Entertainment Weekly TV blogger Shayne Zucker says it should go to Chicago soul man Lee DeWyze, 24. “Should he make it to the finals, which is a decent possibility, [Lee] is probably the one who can defeat Crystal.” …What? Were you expecting him to choose Tim Urban? Read more & vote!
You all saw last night’s double elimination and Adam Lambert’s laser show — but I was there for the Idol taping and can dish everything you missed!
April 14 was a HUGE night for American Idol – double elimination night – and I was there to catch all the action! So get ready, BFF’s — here’s what you definitely didn’t see on TV! Get more behind-the-scenes Idol scoop!
The Idol kids finally woke up and smelled the guyliner after getting some reasonable, rational advice from Glambert last night. Thank god!
Can Adam Lambert be a mentor on American Idol every week? Pretty please with a cherry on top? In my opinion, the controversial king of cool was the best mentor yet this season! Read more
Wondering how your fave Idol’s go from girl next door to totally gorgeous? With the help of a seasoned stylist, of course!
I always think it’s fun to watch American Idol contestants totally transform their looks — whether it’s watching the current contestants from week to week or looking back at the super famous Idol winners — star power isn’t just about singing, a killer look is crucial for these performers! I got to catch up with Soyon An, the stylist for American Idol and designer (she crafted Carrie Underwood’s tour wardrobe), where she told me all about how she helps the Idol girls get glam! “All three girls that are left are so different,” Soyon said about the remaining ladies, Crystal Bowersox, Katie Stevens, and Siobhan Magnus. Read the EXCLUSIVE interview here!
If you’d nearly given up on Andrew like I did, you’re probably also as happy as I am about his big Idol comeback last night!
HollyWho-Knew that Chris Brown could actually have a positive effect on someone? Andrew Garcia finally proved why he deserves a spot on American Idol March 30 with his rendition of Chris’ hit single “Forever.” Welcome back, my friend. I missed you! Read more
Do YOU think Miley has what it takes to be a great musical advisor?
It’s definitely going to be a ‘Party in the USA’ on American Idol this week now that Miley Cyrus has signed on to mentor the top 11 contestants!
Really, who better to give up-and-coming singers like Michael Lynche, Siobhan Magnus and Casey James her advice on how to perform Billboard #1 hits than a multi-platinum recording-artist who’s appeared on the chart herself numerous times? The 17-year-old Hannah Montana starlet will also perform her latest single, ‘When I Look At You’ (from her upcoming movie with BF Liam Hemsworth, The Last Song) during the Idol results show March 24.
