How long ago was that video taken?  Let's not forget that both Jeremiah and his family have disputed the narrative of how he was rejected by them for being gay.

April 2019

I’m somewhat confused by tha date associated with that video as well. I’m not so surprised sure the video was filmed in April 2019 as rge article states as its total inconsistent with the WMAR interviews Jeremiah and his dad did in March and the Out.com article Ian that same time. It may have been a year or more ago, which would be consistent with would be consistent with what Jeremiah said when Hollywood week was filmed that he if I remember his words correctly, didn’t feel comfortable working at his dad’s church where he wasn’t being accepted so he had decided to quit as a janitor and move out.

And his sister’s statement clearly supports that there had been a growing process and that’s also consistent with the family having reached the point where they would love each other unconditionally no matter what. I hate to say it, but I think that video was taken out of some missing contex, such as when was it actually recorded and being used incorrectly.

This, I suspect is a first for American Idol.

Earlier today, the Towson University Chorale performed and released a video of their cover of Jeremiah’s original song “Almost Heaven.” Jeremiah is taking the year off as a voice performance major from there, but he apparently knew nothing about this.

This pisses me off. I mean, it would bother me regardless of who the winner in question was, but the fact that Maddie is my favorite winner of the show after Jordin Sparks and Kelly Clarkson only makes me angrier. 3 hours and they couldn't find a 3 minute slot for her?

Wow. So much randomness. I feel bad for Jeremiah, having to sing with Katy. Luke Bryan singing “Knockin’ Boots” and “Every Breath You Take” with Laci is cringe worthy. I have no idea who Jon Pardo is. Had to Google him and I'm disappointed they gave Laine a country singer to perform with. The only performance I'm looking forward to is the Weezer medley because of the songs.

Katy is having Jeremiah sing her song “Unconditionally.”

when you read the lyrics here then you’ll understand why she chose it; it’s unfortunate the producers made no attempt to find a known performer to pair Jeremiah with; or at least let him do another one of his original songs such as “Learn to Love,” which is available on Spotify..

The judges and Bobby Bones are all returning next year.

One name is conspicuously missing from that release, though, and it's not Kieran the lighting guy. Apparently they're still in discussion with Ryan.

OToday’s the day many AI Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon fans have been wanting. “Almost Heaven” his original song that he performed twice on this last season of American Idol, has been released as a download on various streaming services worldwide. His first post-Idol album “Namesake” is scheduled for release as a download and on vinyl very early next year.

Adam Lambert's EP dropped last week and had sales of 6K.  It charted 148 on the BB200 and dropped off after one week.  He's an indie artist now, no longer with a major label.

Alejandro's record Exit Form drops this week under the name Scarypoolparty.

 Aranda will be opening for Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds next year; and he says he’s been contacted by everyone from Quincy Jones’s camp to Critics’ Choice Brit Award winner Jack Garratt to alternative R&B star Gallant. That’s the sort of genre-blurring career Aranda hopes to have: “Someone like Gallant, an amazing singer that makes really an atonement of creativity… to me, that's someone that really knows exactly what he's trying to go for, and I respect that to the fullest.”

I read the article and I'm not sure if this was mentioned.  The March 29 episode (Hawaii/Judgment) had been scheduled as a three-hour episode, but now it is two hours, according to the listings at the Futon Critic site.  The March 30 episode is now "Part 2" of Hawaii, also two hours.

ABC is continuing to try to fill time with two specials called "American Idol: This Is Me" on Sunday, April 5 & April 12.  The time on Monday, April 6 will now be filled by reruns of Celebrity Family Feud.

http://www.thefutoncritic.com/showatch/american-idol/listings/

ETA: I assumed they were specials, but "This Is Me" could be a top 20 theme?  At any rate, I don't think it will happen unless some performance shows were already recorded, which doesn't seem likely given the article a few posts up.

Now the Hawaii Showcase is down to just two hours on Sunday; Monday episode is replaced by another Celebrity Family Feud repeat and a news special.

ETA: The second two hours of the Hawaii Showcase are now scheduled for Sunday, April 5.  "This Is Me" Parts 1 & 2 are April 12 & 19.  How far do they think they can stretch this out?

In what I am sure is not a coincidence, that Celebrity Family Feud features Kelly Clarkson.

Well, they don't have Barbara Walters churning out specials, and probably ran out of rerun options for According to Jim, so they have to do what they can....

Are the Top 20 eps usually live? I didn't fully watch last season so I don't remember. Like are these 2 Hawaii eps the last eps they have filmed?

I think they make the Top 20 look live, but there's no reason they have to be shown that way. But, I think they sent everyone home before they had a chance to tape them.

It doesn't matter if their live or not because this show has a huge support crew, plus contestants, there's no way they could continue, and anyway, California is trying hard to abide by the Stay at Home orders so there's no way they could have continued. But damn, as much as I loathe this show it really does make good Quarantine TV! I'm bummed they didn't finish filming more of the season before it went dark.
