American Idol Season 12

On the second night of its three-night live round American Idol (3.7/10) saw a surprising flameout by contestant Charlie Askew over criticism from the judges. Besides the profound dismay from judge Nicki Minaj over Askew’s performance, the two-hour show also saw Idol continue its weekly Wednesday ratings slide. While a final numbers adjustment is likely, last night’s Idol slipped 3% in fast nationals from its February 28 show to hit a new in-season Wednesday result.
