Did you catch Mariah Carey on American Idol last night? The diva performed a medley of some of her greatest hits during the show’s finale, causing what felt like everyone on social media questioning whether it was really a “live performance.”
The 43-year-old performed snippets of “Vision of Love,” “Make It Happen,” “My All,” and “Hero” – and the overall performance felt just… a bit choppy, uncoordinated.

Thought the drama between Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj was over? Think again. The American Idol judges started taking jabs at each other again this week. During Wednesday night's show, Mimi made a backhanded comment towards Nicki while critiquing one of the contestants and said, "Again, back to the Billboard Hot 100, No. 1 song, which you just performed -- which is difficult to get; not everybody has that."

It’s down to the Final Four on American Idol, with only girls left in the competition. In fact, last week’s results show saw the first female finalist go home after five-straight boys were sent packing, including our Latino hopefuls Devin Velez and Lazaro Arbos.

We were out of our seats cheering when Puerto Rican Devin Velez’s name was announced as one of the five males to make it into the top 10 of American Idol’s 12th season. It was clear he would be a front-runner from the moment he hit his first note, but it wasn’t until he belted out an immaculate bilingual version of “Somos Novios” that we knew we’d seen Idol gold.

It was a tense elimination episode on last night’s American Idol. The show started switching up their tactic for revelations and slowly revealed the top three contestants who included, Candice Glover, Angie Miller, and Kree Harrison. Each of the powerhouse singers had their moment and Harrison was even granted a key for her hometown in Texas (sweet, but pretty random if you ask us).

It was a rough night for the top ten as they covered hits from American Idol’s past winners on last night’s show. While Nicki Minaj decided to arrive fashionably late to the judges panel (a first in Idol history), the show went on without her. Of course, she didn’t disappoint once she hit the stage chewing gum and rocking a hoodie and sunglasses. Classy.

It certainly looks like our next American Idol winner may be a Latino! The top 10 were revealed during last night’s performance, and it was bitter sweet. While we had to say adios to Tenna Torres and Elijah Liu, Devin Velez and Lazaro Arbos claimed their victory spots with full force.
