American Idol 16: Finale
Air Date: Monday, May 21, 2018 (9-11pm)

It's the season 16 finale of American Idol! Two years ago, we thought were saying goodbye to this show, and now it's time to crown another winner!

When the show was on before, I posted recaps online, initially on one of my blogs and then on other entertainment websites. But this season, I decided to try something different; I've been tweeting my thoughts on all the performances while watching. And, in fact, this new recapping method for me has ended up working really well, particularly because the show went live in every time zone for a few weeks, allowing me to truly live-tweet and experience this show in the moment with everyone else.

So for the last time this season, here's my Twitter recap for the season 16 finale...

American Idol 16: Top 10
Air Date: Sunday, April 29, 2018 (8-10pm)
Theme: Disney Night

It's time for the finals to begin! The Top 10 were revealed last week, and now these 10 remaining contestants only have America to save them now. And speaking of America, Idol made history tonight as the first reality competition show ever to air live in every time zone in the country. This really is unprecedented. Because I live on the West Coast, I've never truly been able to watch my favorite show live -- until now -- and I live-tweeted every step of the way.

Not only are these next three weeks live everywhere, but viewers are able to vote in real time, with the results being announced at the end of the episode. That's what happened tonight, as the Top 10 performed Disney songs, and three finalists were eliminated.

Here's my live Twitter recap for the Top 10...
