American Juniors, The Grand Finale: Meet the American Juniors, by Sting7: American Juniors is no longer a show, it's a band! Tonight, we watch them perform songs from their new album. We also get performances from Deborah Gibson, Gladys Knight, and Ruben Studdard dueting with Chauncey Matthews. Sort of. A sweet ending for a sweet show!
American Juniors, August 12: Band By America, by Sting7: One seat in the band left, six hearts on the line. Last week, A.J. Melendez performed in front of the group and showed he's just as good with his feet as he is with his pipes! Can the resident junior hearthrob capitalize on his last chance to make the band?
American Juniors, August 5: Never Had a Dream Come True, by Sting7: Meet Danielle White. Despite the fact that she has never had a bad performance, in fact she's usually excellent, she has never even been in the Top 3. Tonight, she raised her game one more time! The judges gushed, the audience ovated, will she finally get in the group?
American Juniors, July 30: I Gotta Have Some of Your Attention!, by Sting7: Morgan Burke can't buy a break. The judges always give him great critiques, which he deserves, but America just won't budge. Last night, he hit a personal best! Will it be enough to get him in the band?
American Juniors, July 29: I’m Special, So Special, by Sting7: Only two spots left, and seven remaining contestants. This is pressure the likes of which these young stars have never felt. Can Chantel break the bridesmaid streak? Can Jordan find some “Magic”?
American Juniors, July 23: Do You Love Me?, by Sting7: If you're Katelyn Tarver, you are just about sick to death of hearing how pretty you are. She wants to sing! Slowly but surely, the special qualities of her voice are beginning to surface. Has she improved enough to get the third spot in the band?
American Juniors, July 22: Notice Me, by Sting7: The Thompson sisters are in. Nepotism is alive in the hearts and minds of America. Poor Chauncey Matthews was robbed of the spot because of it. Does he have it in him to knock another one out of the park, or was his chance blown?
American Juniors, July 16: Two for the Road, by Sting7: The remaining nine finally get to hear who is the second member of the band. It sure looked like Tori Thompson was a lock for the second spot... before she even performed. But A.J. Melendez has quite a following of his own! Can he delay the inevitable?
American Juniors, July 8: Noise from the Back of the Class!, by Sting7: A curious night for the Juniors. While many of the usually reliable performers fell to mediocrity, some of the lower ranking Juniors stepped up big tonight! Is it a foregone conclusion that Tori Thompson makes the group or will Jordan McCoy pull an upset?
American Juniors, July 2: Making the Band, by Sting7: Here it comes! The band is getting its first member tonight. Last night, the performed earnestly, and tonight the judges spoke honestly (for the most part) about the very surprising results. Katelyn Tarver swore she'd never fall in love again. Will she have better luck getting in the band?
American Juniors, July 1: How You Gonna Pick Just One?, by Sting7: Tonight, the top ten went head to head for a shot at the first spot in the band. These kids tackled songs from 1969 like they were born singing them! Lucy Hale was welcomed to the finals with "open arms." Will America greet her with the highest number of votes?
American Juniors, June 25: …And Then There Were 10, by Sting7: The seats in the Top Ten are about to be filled. Five will be heading home and five will be staying. While Tori Thompson set the stage on fire, her sister Taylor did a pretty good job herself. Will America judge her individually or was she overshadowed by her younger sibling?
American Juniors, June 24: Ten More Tries, by Sting7: Ten more kids perform for America's review, the Top Five advance. Next week, we have a bonafide Top Ten, and seats in the new group will begin to be filled. Canyon Grove invokes images of a young Leif Garrett. Will his performance evoke enough votes for a shot at the group?
American Juniors, June 18: Five Alive, by Sting7: The first five finalists are crowned tonight. They sang their hearts out for Fox, but can Fox resist the image of crying, disappointed children? Danielle White dazzled the judges and the audience last night. Surely, she won't be going home, will she?
American Juniors, June 17: Honest and Pure, by Sting7: The first ten of the producer-selected top twenty take center stage in the freshly minted set, and in front of actual judges! America takes control from here; five of these ten go on! Chauncey Matthews wants to be a superstar or a lawyer! Does law school await him after tonight?
American Juniors: The Cuties Who Went Home, by Nicole Albertson: Nicole is just a big softie. She can't pick favorites out of those still in the competition, but she has a few favorites among those who went home.
American Juniors, Episode 2: Little Hearts, Big Heartbreaks, by Sting7: It's been cute and it's been fun, but it's time for serious business. Tonight, we go from thousands to twenty! Some fresh faces we've grown to love will say goodbye. Will the sudden chinks in Morgan Burke's armor cost him a spot in the Top 20?
Morgan Burke: From Talented Kid to American Junior, by David Bloomberg: When Morgan Burke set fire to the stage on American Juniors, it wasn’t his first time – he also appeared on America’s Most Talented Kid and received high scores for both his performance and the way he acted.
American Juniors: Perspective from a Sane Parent, by Nicole Albertson: While watching American Juniors, several things became clear. One is that a lot of these kids have talent! Another, though, is that many of the parents on the show are living vicariously through their children. A sane parent has her say.
Reality TV Hall of Shame: Ashley Olson: Shameful Stage Mom of 'American Juniors', by David Bloomberg: American Juniors holds promise for showing us talented kids and proud parents. But it also has a darker side, a side embodied by Ashley Olson, mother of Rylee, who didn't make the cut. Ms. Olson is the one you have seen yelling at the camera and making fun of the other kids during the American Juniors commercials. With the premiere, we got to see more of that tantrum, and with it she deserves a place in the Reality TV Hall of Shame.
American Juniors, Episode 1: Some Great Kids and a Nasty Mom, by David Bloomberg: American Juniors begins with auditions in three cities. We see some great kids, proud parents, and a few tears. Plus, of course, there has to be a nasty mom. But mostly the focus stays on the kids.
