As you probably know, the premiere of Season 10 of American Idol airs tonight.

As such, there’s really not a whole lot I can say about it right now. However, I thought today would be a good day to look back at some of the past Idol posts we’ve had here at Celebrity Psychings.

After the jump, take a look at some of the Idol goings-on that have given us hope, taught us a lesson of some sort, or just made us stop and think.

Some fans were concerned Crystal’s new-found interest in her appearance might have been the beginning of a new Hollywood-esque version of the down-to-earth singer.

Thoughts on Fantasia’s Good Morning America appearance, during which the former Idol talks frankly about her suicide attempt.

Both Sides Of The Sudden Fame And Celebrity Coin

Shows like Britain’s Got Talent and American Idol push everyday people into the spotlight – a place not all of them are accustomed to, or prepared to be.

Did American Idol Bait The Mentally Ill?

An idea that mental health advocates, consumers, and the public at large have discussed time and time again.
