Hot off the presses–Adam Lambert has another gig. He’ll be performing “Whataya Want From Me” on the So You Think You Can Dance finale on Wednesday, December 16. Check out the press release:

ADAM LAMBERT RETURNS TO FOX TO PERFORM ON THE ‘SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE’  SEASON FINALE WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 16. TOP 6 FINALISTS TO COMPETE DURING FINAL SHOWDOWN BEGINNING TUESDAY, DECEMBER 15

The night America has been waiting for is almost here! The SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE two-night season finale airs Tuesday, Dec. 15 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) and Wednesday, Dec. 16 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) on FOX, and some of the year’s hottest performers ‘“ including AMERICAN IDOL’s Adam Lambert ‘“ are set to take the stage. Lambert will sing his latest track, ‘Whataya Want From Me,’  in his first appearance on the network since the AMERICAN IDOL season finale in May.

Adam Lambert captured the attention of the nation this year during the eighth season of AMERICAN IDOL. Throughout his much-celebrated IDOL journey, Lambert surprised and impressed the judges every week with his takes on various musical genres. His out-of-this-world vocal range and unique musical style has helped Lambert conquer the Billboard charts with multiple debuts on the Hot 100 and the Hot Digital Songs charts. His first album, ‘For Your Entertainment’  (19 Recordings/RCA), recently debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard Charts with 198,469 albums sold in the first week.

Tuesday’s final performance show will feature the ultimate showdown between the Top 6 finalists as they compete to impress the judges and capture America’s vote. Immediately following the performance show, the phone lines will open and viewers will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite remaining finalists. Then, tune in the following night for one of the most-anticipated television events of the fall.

Wednesday’s two-hour grand finale will feature surprise guests and special performances by this season’s Top 20. At the end of the celebration, host Cat Deeley will reveal America’s vote and America’s Favorite Dancer will be crowned live before millions of television viewers. The winner will dance off with a cash prize of $250,000 and will be featured on the cover of the March 2010 issue of Dance Spirit magazine.

SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE was created by Simon Fuller and Nigel Lythgoe and comes from 19 Entertainment Ltd. and dick clark productions. The series is executive-produced by Simon Fuller, Nigel Lythgoe and Barry Adelman.

    Adam gets the pimp spot!!!

    YAY!!!!

  • sr4mjc

    Awesome, very cool!

  • BootStar

    The pimp spot again! Big surprise. I’m sure he’ll be great per usual.

  • aly

    Hell yes!

  • jpfan

    I admit I haven’t been following this cycle of SYTYCD much but how can the finale be next week?? Don’t they usually wait until they’re down to the Top 3 before they do the finale.

    Was SYTYCD scheduled this way or are they changing their format for some reason? Confused.

    Pretty funny to see that its produced by 19/Dick Clark Productions and Simon Fuller (Kris and Adam’s manager) is the exec producer. It’s a small world after all. :)

  • http://twitter.com/southpaw2009 Southpaw2009

    great news, thanks MJ!!

  • Adamdebomb

    Wish he was going to perform something else. Talk about beating a dead horse.

  • mitchellvii

    Wow, this is HUGE. This is a great show.

    Hope he sings, “If I Had You” which is the danciest song on the album.

    Please Adam, DO NOT SING FYE (which sucks, IMHO) or Strut (which is bar far worst song on the album).

    Doubt he’ll sing WWFM as that’s not a dance tune.

    Please Adam, IIHY!

    (Edit**) – Oops, didnt see he is singing WWFM. Ok, cool, good song but not very dancy.

    Yes, changing the format to cram it into the fall season. A top 6 for the finale rather than the typical top 4.

  • unique28v

    Yea!!!!! Nigel liked Adam during AI so in a way I’m not too surprised. And its a live performance. lol This is going to be great exposure!

  • mayang

    “Don’t ever apologize for being who you are.Stand tall and be counted”

    i remember adam when i saw this quote.

  • cakeygirl

    yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! how many viewers is this???

  • https://twitter.com/pmhowden undercooked

    Wow, just wow. Ok. Is this a gig Adam has to pay for or is this Fox asking him to come on. I think it would be the latter. What is the viewership for this program?

  • star

    Yay, I can’t wait! WWFM is soooo good live! :D

  • fluffybunny

    Wish he was going to perform something else. Talk about beating a dead horse.

    Isn’t “Whataya Want From Me’  his new single? Why should he perform something else?

  • cakeygirl

    thanks you! music again!! so he is the only performer?

    I think he could win over some fans with this performance who might have been turned off by the amas

  • BeckyMD

    Yay~~~~

    Is Kris going to perform in some So You Think You Can Dance episode too? Anyone remember when it is?

  • happycat14

    So great for both Adam and Kris! I always wondered why there wasn’t more synergy between AI and SYTYCD, though I realize the SYTYCD peeps performed w/ S7. Maybe Nigel doesn’t mind that Courtney Galliano was thrust towards Adam’s crotch LOL during FYE.

  • Miss Chaos

    Oh. so excited, my favorite person singing on my favorite show. OHHHh got goosebumps when the headline popped up. Nigel must love him some Adam too!!!! Thanks MJ for this news. My only complaint is that Adam wont be dancing too!!!!

  • googletot

    How many people actually watch this program? I don’t know anybody that does.

  • zuper

    YAYYYYY!!! A meshing of my two worlds!!!!!!

    Super Sqeeeeeeeeeallllllll.

  • http://www.noahsarkworkshop.com/tammyluebrecht_s9189 tammyinohio

    I’ve never watched this show but I will do it just this once to see Adam!!

  • http://twitter.com/melliesmom Diane

    Yeah, and somewhere in small print we’ve got this:

    December 9: Kris Allen will perform on the So You Think You Can Dance results show, FOX 8 pm.

  • bridget

    This seems like a perfect “gig” for him as well as an opportunity to perform for a very large, very young tv audience during prime time

    (Stand really, really still, Adam, and do not get too close to anyone . . . JK, I know WWFM isn’t THAT kind of a song, anyway . . . )

  • http://mjsbigblog.com/voronas-ontario-american-idol-tour-recap.htm vorona

    Yay! And wow that it’s already finale time.

  • tfmal

    Yey!!!! I love that show! I can’t wait to see Adam perform again, at least FOX trusts him. Way to go FOX!!!!!! Do you know mj if there are other performers? I would imagine there would be a few for it to be two hours long. Thanks for the great news!!

  • sr4mjc

    Nah, he’s promoting his single. It’s only a dead horse if you watch every show he performs it on. I am never sick of hearing him sing live. Or seeing Tommy :)

  • Bowie1

    I don’t watch that show but I’ll be watching the finale.

    WAY TO GO, ADAM!!!!!!!

  • Miss Chaos

    And HAHA to the Live, tape – delay mention.

  • PattyH

    Would 2 songs be too much to ask for? Yes, I’m selfish, like that! :)
    WWFM, of course, but I would love to see Sure Fire Winners, live!
    Yay, for Adam! Yay for FOX! Yay, for Nigel!
    Can someone please remind me why Jimmy Kimmel was cancelled? :(

  • Gigi3

    Congrats on the great gig, Adam!

    I don’t typically watch SYTYCD, but I sure will that night.

  • YankeeFan08

    This is great news! I haven’t watched SYTYCD this season, but I will be tuning in to see Adam.

  • Miss Chaos

    Yes, Sure Fire Winners would be awsome to sing to the winner!! Someone send Nigel a tweet about it!!

  • http://myspace.com/susanatfox sumidol

    OMG – what a wonderful month it is turning out to be for Adam and those that adore him!!!!!!!!!! YAY Adam – well my choice is for him to sing Pick You Up but I will take anything – all his songs are wonderful!!!!!!! I am wearing out my cd but the kids and I had a great weekend putting up our Christmas tree and decorations while dancing around to Adam – so much fun

  • susieq3

    This is wonderful. I think we’ve been burned more than once in the past, though, by things that have turned out to be true.

    Can you link to where the press release or news is posted on the internet? I cannot find this story anywhere.

  • http://twitter.com/southpaw2009 Southpaw2009

    Yes, me too, will never get tired of that song! WWFM is his new single, and it would be nice for the SYTYCD viewers to hear him sing it too, in case they haven’t.

    yeeeheey happy for Adam!! Oh and Kris too since he is also booked there on the 9th. happy holidays!

  • http://myspace.com/girlgeek mj

    Can you link to where the press release or news is posted on the internet? I cannot find this story anywhere.

    It’s true. Trust me.

  • mr

    In MJ we trust… :-)

  • 4evrmomof4

    Yeah, Happy Dance! I am not surprised he is performing at the finale, cause SYTCD took some viewership hits with 2 seasons so close together and moving to the fall.

    So happy for Adam, happy for us.

    Now, do we think he will be able sleep sometime this month??!!!

  • outer

    “bridget
    Stand really, really still, Adam, and do not get too close to anyone . . .”

    LOL – But he won’t be able to stop people from getting too close to him….

  • unique28v

    Is it just me or is it kind of ironic that Dick Clark productions is invovled in this? lol It is definitely ABC that canceled Adam from the NYE gig then.

  • Izzieq

    Good for Adam I guess, but I will say it…yet again I feel kris is overshadowed. Kris gets the SYTYCD gig and Adam gets on the same show, but bigger night…w/e. But, glad for Adam fans.

  • mayang

    so kris will be perfroming der on the 9th and adam on the finale? well, nice for adam!!!! yay!! good for him!! and this is live?!!!!its correct, stand still adam and nver move close to tommy!!!! LOL!!!

    Actually, the headline looks identical to me including the font size:

  • mayang

    poor bb adam, does he still have time to sleep….!!!

  • cakeygirl

    how many viewers typically watch sstycd every week? what about the finale last year?

  • sidewalkstory

    Ah what a great way to start the day. Adam and the band are coming to NYC today and then I find out they will be on SYTYCD.

  • Kanadie Bonttell

    Good for Adam I guess, but I will say it’ ¦yet again I feel kris is overshadowed. Kris gets the SYTYCD gig and Adam gets on the same show, but bigger night’ ¦w/e.

    It all comes down to making money, and what the show thinks will help them get the most ratings. I see it as simple as that.
    Adam = Larger Ratings

  • clearone

    Thank you Nigel!!

    It doesn’t get any bigger than this right now.

  • Lynneville

    I soooo wish he could have done FYE (with dancers! and him dancing!!!) on that show. But I’ll take what I can get.

  • unique28v

    how many viewers typically watch sstycd every week? what about the finale last year?

    I think sytycd has more viewers when its on during the summer than the fall. But the schedule was messed up this year. It still has a large audience though.

    Good for Adam I guess, but I will say it’ ¦yet again I feel kris is overshadowed. Kris gets the SYTYCD gig and Adam gets on the same show, but bigger night’ ¦w/e. But, glad for Adam fans.

    I see it differently. Kris hasn’t exactly conveyed he wants to be on the pimp spots. And his songs are not dancy. Adam has promoted his whole album as dancy. If Kris sold more than he did and was perhaps closer to the 200,000 that Adam sold it may be a different story.

    I personally cannot see Kris doing SYTYCD in his normal band format, mainstream middle of the road soft rock genre. You can’t picture the dancers there doing a choreo number to his single.

    He should be on a stool stripped down, which would meet the format of the SYTYCD more lyric type dances, IMO. But for a bombastic season finale? I don’t think it would be in his best interests as it would only show him as being in the wrong atmosphere and that he “belongs” in the smaller type intimate venue/show.

    If that Red Guitar song were the single it would make more sense as you can actually picture a couple dancing to it even though I’m thinking there won’t be any dancing on SYTYCD during either performance, unlike when Subo was on DWTS.

    edited to fix Red Shoes to Red Guitar LOL

  • mr

    Umm… stupid questin maybe, but I’ve never seen this show:
    Do the musical guests sing as the dancers are dancing? Or is it a seperate performance?

  • tripp_ncwy

    Well according to the schedule, Kris has a conflict for the 16th or at least he would be double booked.

    Separate performance

  • Organic

    Oh my gosh, this has just made my day. I’m so excited he’s doing the finale. My bet is that he’ll be singing one of his “dance” beat songs and not WWFM. Maybe If I Had You?

  • cakeygirl

    numbers neone? lol

    I soooo wish he could have done FYE (with dancers! and him dancing!!!) on that show. But I’ll take what I can get.

    Me TOO! I loved that choreo and ADORE the song. I saw some of the same dancers in The Zodiac Show footage of CTF and really hope they get to tour with him. The blond 180 spin girl, for one, is SIIICK!

  • clearone

    I soooo wish he could have done FYE (with dancers! and him dancing!!!) on that show. But I’ll take what I can get.

    Mmmm….not gonna happen again in this lifetime…not on primetime television anyhow.

    The press release says he’s singing WWFM.

    Wednesday December 16
    Kris Allen appears on Late Show with David Letterman

    Yep. And IMO, Letterman >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>SYTYCD when it comes to hot gigs.

    Nonetheless, being on SYTYCD will be a good showcase for both Kris and Adam.

  • cakeygirl

    it says wwfm in the press release and it’s his current single… he’s singing that

  • mr

    Thanks unique!

    Sure Fire Winners really would be cool, though, wouldn’t it?

    But yeah, it’ll probably WWFM…

  • bridget

    I didn’t think about the news of Adam’s appearance “overshadowing” Kris’.

    I thought about how being an American Idol alum – despite the show’s drop in ratings – is such an unbelievable boost and vehicle to these singers’ careers.

    All these shows, networks, companies, and coorporations are so intertwined and incestuous – it’s impossible for me to follow the links and connections or to attribute “motives,” logic, or consistency to monied entities that seem to have their own lives separate from their human managers’.

    Kris will be great, people will feel him (NOT literally), there’ll be viewers who like his vibe and get his album.

    Adam will be great, people will feel him (again, NOT literally . . . although I guess that is what the time delay mention is about), there’ll be viewers who like his vibe and get his album.

    I think Letterman’s show is taped, No?

  • suebrody

    OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG

    This is SO exciting!!! SYTYCD is my second favorite show after Idol.

    I am sort of surprised he will sing WWFM, but since that his next single (read: HIS SINGLE), it makes sense.

    Team Jakob and Team Ellenore and Team Adam FTW!

    *happy dancing*

    Usually the band just sings, but last week with Snoop Dawg they brought in Dominic and Hok’s troupe, Qwest Crew.

    Time to tweet Nigel.

    *thud*

  • susieq3

    Yes, Letterman’s show is taped. If Kris has a schedule conflict, it’s not because of Letterman.

  • becausehelives

    Good for Adam I guess, but I will say it’ ¦yet again I feel kris is overshadowed. Kris gets the SYTYCD gig and Adam gets on the same show, but bigger night’ ¦w/e.

    I knew some wld feel this way but here’s how i see it. kris won so he gets to be on the show first just like he did all the media rounds first. last week when they announced kris was performing i was like thank God they didn’t book Adam first or some people wld have said the winner shld get the gig first. now whether nigel planned it this way for more ratings in the wake of AMA & cancellations i don’t know.

  • PattyH

    I think Letterman’s show is taped, No?

    Yes, but it’s taped the same day, around 5:00. I think that would be the exact time as the SYTYCD finale.

    Yep. And IMO, Letterman >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>SYTYCD when it comes to hot gigs.

    Probably not, especially if you are trying to “hit” a younger audience.

  • GaGaGlambert

    SYTYCD with Adam will be lots of fun. Wonder if some of his dancers from the show will be in the audience.

    Adam and the band are coming to NYC today and then I find out they will be on SYTYCD.

    Are they taping The View today or tomorrow?

    TYPO (ha ha)

  • Mary102

    Very very awesome news! Yea! I LOVE SYTYCD, and was hoping he’d pop for one of the shows! Ha! Am I the only one secretly hoping for some FYE repeat? (j/k – sorta) :-)

    Also, glad to hear how the SYTYCD finale will work – I was so confused about how they would have the finale next week with 6 dancers left, but figured they’d change the finale to top 6 rather than top 4. As long as Jakob is there it’s all good :-)

  • Lynneville

    I agree we’ll probably never see FYE again on television (hopeful for the tour, though). I would have loved to see the scaled down version that was planned for GMA. It would be great to see him really kill it and then I’d get to see the performance I got gyped out of. (#ShameOnYouABC)

  • fluffybunny

    Adam needs to promote his single. Why do his fans want him to sing something else? He has not had a hit single yet.

  • suebrody

    I wondered why the finale is in two weeks, MJ, since there are 8 dancers left. Now I get it. Too bad it has 6 dancers in the finale show, b/c each dancer will only get two dances, not four, as is usually the case (each dancer gets paired with another, and there is a group dance).

    But…I am not complaining.

    And…this is currently my favorite song on the album.

    And…I feel much better now after all the cancellations. God, it is so up and down following Adam’s career. Now it’s up again (and Logo’s video show is on tonight, 7PM, Adam hosting). Adam must be exhausted but very, very happy. And another gig for the band.

    *squeeing*

  • Planet Fierce

    Hey guys…I predict there is still a chance that Adam will be on NYE, so be a little more positive, it helps!!!!! They haven’t made the appearance list public yet, so they may be reconsidering…hope hope!

  • Mary102

    I knew some wld feel this way but here’s how i see it. kris won so he gets to be on the show first just like he did all the media rounds first. last week when they announced kris was performing i was like thank God they didn’t book Adam first or some people wld have said the winner shld get the gig first. now whether nigel planned it this way for more ratings in the wake of AMA & cancellations i don’t know.

    But the thing is, it no longer follows winner/AI rules! These guys can get booked on whatever gig they get booked on. It is not about who came in first and gets “first dibs” – hence the AMAs, etc.

    Kris has gotten a ton of performances that Adam never did (all the Jingle Balls for one). So, yeah – they get what they get at this point.

    I wonder whether they won’t try to up it a bit from two dances each, like maybe having all three guys dance together and all three girls dance together or something. I really expect something extra like that for the finale. Would surprise me if they didn’t find some way to have each of them dance more than twice.

  • Chicagolaw

    Great gig for Adam! I admit I have never watched this show before, but I will watch for this.

  • Kanadie Bonttell

    Adam needs to promote his single. Why do his fans want him to sing something else? He has not had a hit single yet.

    I totally agree, and find it interesting that some people are questioning him performing and saying there tired of WWFM… It was just released as a single, and he has performed it on I think 3 shows so far. I don’t understand this???? I mean are attention spans really that short. I see this song being the focus and at the center of Adams performances for at least the next 1 – 2 months, with hopefully a bunch of radio airplay to come.

  • Lynneville

    Adam needs to promote his single. Why do his fans want him to sing something else? He has not had a hit single yet.

    He definitely needs to pimp his single, and it seems to be working since it is getting more spins. But those of us who obsessively hunt down every performance, have seen him do WWFM 3 times now and want something new. It’s starting to feel like after Idol when he did Mad World everywhere and I, for one, got kinda sick of that song. But, like I said, I’m happy to see/hear him sing just about anything.

  • glamertitis

    I’m sure all these performances are booked weeks to months in advance, at least tentatively. Then closer to the date, the confirmations are released to the public.
    Then there are also the last minute bookings like The View if you have become very newsworthy.

  • GaGaGlambert

    I agree we’ll probably never see FYE again on television (hopeful for the tour, though)

    My thoughts exactly. But on tour FYE would be lots of fun. Seeing it performed live with Crawl Through Fire would be epic :)

    As far as I remember, this is kind of a typical feeling for big-time fans, once an Idol finalist starts mega-promoting their first single. The fans know and love a lot of the stuff on the album, and have heard the first single over and over, so they’re often crying out for new stuff…. Thinking of what they want to hear rather than thinking about what the performer needs to do to push his/her current product. …. Not a new phenomenon with Adam to hear this said. I’m sure we’ll hear it about others in 2010, too, lol.

    Heh. I guess these appearances are not such a big “win”, but good exposure for Adam and Kris nonetheless.

    Believe it or not, some of his fans love just about every song on his album, and just want to see different performances of them all! I’m hardly sick of WWFM – in fact I think it’s a great song! But then I want to see him perform every single song from that album, they’re just that good and unique.

  • Laury

    It is good for Adam to perform WWFM because it will be a great opportunity for people to hear that song and see another side of Adam :) Also maybe it will help to increase radio spins and gain some new fans :)

    BTW I love Adam’s wild and naughty side, but that side is not for everybody :)

  • Mary102

    Heh. I guess these appearances are not such a big ‘win’ , but good exposure for Adam and Kris nonetheless.

    Uh, well, I thought it was kinda common knowledge that SYTYCD and AI are very closely related – SYTYCD has featured AI alum in the past (like Jordin and Kelly), and Nigel was exec producer of AI before leaving there to only work on SYTYCD.

  • sumwhut

    why does he have to sing WWFM? It is a good, non offensive, easy for the masses to digest, but for a Dance show? It breaks my heart that he can’t perform FYE anymore. It suks. But there are other upbeat songs on the album. Or I guess he could sing Mad World!?! ha

  • bmms

    Personally, I prefer that Adam is appearing on the FINALE of SYTYCD.

  • suebrody

    Heh. I guess these appearances are not such a big ‘win’ , but good exposure for Adam and Kris nonetheless.

    Depends on how you define WIN. In my opinion, this IS a win for Adam. A high profile gig is a WIN. I refuse to get down about this. I am too happy.

    “I’m walking on sunshine…ah ha…and I feel good!”

  • ljsmack

    Love love love sytycd daughter and I text our way thru it each week

    no better mashup than Adam + sytycd

    tape delay mention in press release has nothing to do with Adam. It’s a results show so people need to know winner already announced so they can watch and be surprised

    Kris version of heartless was already danced to last season

    sure fire winners would be good but not in sync with marketing strategy I surmise. Music again would be nice tho

  • becausehelives

    But the thing is, it no longer follows winner/AI rules! These guys can get booked on whatever gig they get booked on. It is not about who came in first and gets ‘first dibs’  ‘“ hence the AMAs, etc.

    yes u are totally right but u know how it is in the idol bubble. it’s like every gig Adam get’s kris’s fans think that kris, as the winner, shld get it first . eg AMA gig etc so here’s one where kris gets first and now they want him to get it last. it’s a great gig for both and all fans shld be haappy. i am excited to watch adam perform anything. even if it’s ellen’s 1 min give away song. i don’t mind. so wywfm is perfect.

  • lucy

    why does he have to sing WWFM?

    When you’re trying to promote a single on radio — in hopes that the radio play will get you sales — you pretty much always sing that song in your tv and other appearances. ….

    At least part of the argument for that is that, if people hear the song on tv and like it, they may call up their radio stations and request it. … And if they called djs and requested a song that was *not* getting onto radio playlists (i.e., was not the “current single” from that artist), that wouldn’t help the artist at all. Radio largely ignores calls for songs that aren’t on the playlist or at least aren’t on the playlist of their competitors and other stations. But if people call and request a song that *is* on somebody’s playlist, it *will* help the artist.

  • PattyH

    Adam needs to promote his single. Why do his fans want him to sing something else? He has not had a hit single yet.

    I don’t want him to sing something else. I am selfish and want 2 songs! His album is so diverse, each song being so different, that I htink WWFM doesn’t do it justice. I love it, don’t get me wrong. I would just like the non-fanbase to realize how diverse it is.

  • GaGaGlambert

    WWFM’ ¦ It was just released as a single, and he has performed it on I think 3 shows so far.

    Why do his fans want him to sing something else?

    Just think of how many times he sang MW on tv when he was a guest on the talk show circuit last spring – and he wasn’t even promoting his own album. No doubt we are going to be hearing WWFM a lot.

  • bridget

    I love Adam’s wild and naughty side (and even his sexually aggressive side), too, and I expect he’ll unleash both for some song performances on his tour.

    Obviously he likes sometimes working on the edge – figuring out where it is and occassionally, for some, going over it (which doesn’t kill anyone when it happens).

  • PattyH

    Heh. I guess these appearances are not such a big ‘win’ , but good exposure for Adam and Kris nonetheless.

    Are you kidding! With the age group this show caters to, it is a huge win for both these guys!

  • suebrody

    When you’re trying to promote a single on radio ‘” in hopes that the radio play will get you sales ‘” you pretty much always sing that song in your tv and other appearances. ‘ ¦

    Yep. How many times have BEP sung I’ve Got a Feeling or whatever it’s called? Ad nauseum, but look how big the song has gotten (was it #1? Near enough, and it brought them back into the musical landscape). If Adam sang Music Again or Fever or STRUT, that would be amazing and apropos, but they aren’t the single RCA is promoting, they aren’t getting airplay/spins, and if you called a radio station and said, Hey, can I request MA, they would say, HUH? and not play it. Right now, WWFM, is increasing its spins by the day (10 yesterday by Z-100 in NYC, as reported in last night’s Logo thread), and the next two weeks are just more opportunities to give it exposure. Plus the more Adam and the band sing it, the better it gets, and Adam can play (ha) with different nuances. Wonder what he’ll wear? ;)

    I have to stop squeeing and doing some work before I get in trouble. 8)

  • lucy

    if you called a radio station and said, Hey, can I request MA, they would say, HUH? and not play it.

    Yes, and, in fact, they might even get *pissed* if too many people did this.

    Far more sensible to just stick with the song that they have and that they know to be getting onto stations’ playlists…..

    WWFM is doing well here in the early going, but you really really don’t want to do anything to mess with that progress at this point, especially since it isn’t going to have much time to do anything before Christmas week stalls things completely.

    And as for the Idol boys singing two songs on SYTYCD — Well, this show is about the dancers, so I don’t think any musical guest should be doing that. They can sing their one song each and let the spotlight be on the dancers, who have a darned hard time in this life ever getting the spotlight on them at all.

  • gangreen29

    I wonder whether they won’t try to up it a bit from two dances each, like maybe having all three guys dance together and all three girls dance together or something. I really expect something extra like that for the finale. Would surprise me if they didn’t find some way to have each of them dance more than twice.

    I am pretty sure the final performance show is only an hour, I just checked tv guide and they have some Gordon Ramsey thing on after. My guess is just 6 six dances, and each person will only be partnered with one other person. In my opinion it is just an extra way to cram some more manipulation into the finale.

    Yes, Letterman’s show is taped. If Kris has a schedule conflict, it’s not because of Letterman.

    Letterman’s show is taped, at about 5:30 pm on the same day as broadcast. The Adam taping was a few days early because of the Thanksgiving holiday.

    So, yes, there is a conflict, because the LS is taped in NYC and SYTYCD is in Los Angeles.

    It’s a very big win :) – it’s not something idol contestants are automatically “rewarded” with.
    I’m so excited – SYTYCD is my FAVORITE show!!! And just an FYI, performers on results show are there to promote their new music – it doesn’t have to be a “dancy” song at all. It makes perfect sense that Adam will be promoting his single. Can’t wait! The finale will have the biggest viewer audience and it will be a lovely night of (hopefully) Russell, Elenore, Jakob, Legacy, Kathryn and ADAM! :)

  • girlygirl

    Adam is promoting his single. Just like Kris is promoting his single. Kris has sung LLWD far more than Adam has sung WWFM + FYE combined! When Adam goes on tour or if he does some sort of gig prior to his own tour where he gets the time to sign more than 1 song, then he’ll perform stuff other than WWFM. But when these guys are only performing one song on t.v. or wherever, that song is going to be the current single — that’s just the way it works. That’s why Allison sang FIBOU for her “Ellen” performance that aired today…

    This post about the one-hour performance show was in answer to my hopeful post that the dancers wouldn’t be limited to two dances only in their *performance show*…. I’m interested in Adam but, frankly, since this is SYTYCD, I’m *more* interested in what the dancers get to do and how much of them that I get to see! So …. for those who are only interested in Adam, here — When you see something about the *performance* show, you can just ignore that message. It doesn’t pertain to Adam. Carry on.

    Makes me furious that the performance show is only an hour! … What is it with these shows — first they hvae the Idols singing way fewer songs in a season than usual, and now they have the dancers on SYTYCD doing fewer dances. I watch these shows for, you know, the contestants’ songs and dances. Crap.

    Nevertheless, next week will still be fun. The results finale is always a good show, to me, anyway. And I’m not even tired of WWFM yet.

  • girlygirl

    Kris couldn’t appear on the finale since it is on the same day as his Letterman gig. And while Letterman is taped, it is usually taped on the same day it airs. Kris also has several other East Coast gigs for the day before ad after the 16th. Here’s his schedule:

    Dec. 15 – AOL sessions, interview, performance & taping – NYC
    Dec. 16 – David Letterman, NYC
    Dec. 17 – KissMas Office Party – Charlotte, NC

    If he could somehow squeeze SYTYCD into that, he’d be flying all the way across the country twice in the space of about 24 hours — which would NOT be fun. As it is, he’s flying across the country twice in about 48 hours just to do SYTYCD on the 9th (he’s got 2 performances in Connecticut on the 8th and has to be back in NYC for the Z-100 JingleBall on 11th)

  • cher

    Funny. I had stopped watching SYTYCD a couple weeks ago and just at 2am this morning deleted all the shows remaining on my tivo that I hadn’t watched yet and now have to reset it. Oh well, the things we do for Adam. lol Good for him. Barbara Walters is just now telling the View panel that Adam’s coming on the show this Thursday and you ought to have heard Elizabeth and especially Sherrie’s comments. Sherrie made a mean crotch comment. Sherrie and Elizabeth said they’re being bombarded on Twitter by Adam’s fans who’re calling Sherry homophobic. It’s going to be interesting. Barbara said they will tape the interview because people seem to be a bit afraid of what he might perform. HUH? Then she says she doesn’ think he’s going to come there and do that kind of performance. Joy said she’d like to see that up close. lol I’m sorry Whoopi won’t be there.

  • ilovenpt123

    Those ladies of The View had BETTER be nice to Adam – he’s too sweet and charming to have these b8fhkches after him.

    I’m sure he will point out very successfully his side of the story. He will be polite but not back down. He has successfully “classed” himself out of this jam without blaming anyone. I wish more people were like Adam.

  • suebrody

    Now I’m confused. I thought both shows were two hours.

    The show on Tuesday is the one that features all six (this time) dancers competing.

    The show on Wednesday features a group dance for Top 20 and also has the top dances of the season, as picked by a number of the choreographers. At the same time, they eliminate the dancers until it’s down to the final two, and they they announce the winner and confetti falls and the like (as is the case on Idol). Of course the emphasis is on the dancers, but every week SYTYCD has a musical guest and often a dancer or troupe. So this isn’t unusual for the show, except that in the past the finale week did NOT have musical guests.

    This is a big deal for Adam, but does not take away from the dancers, IMO. It IS a way to get higher ratings, AND possibly to promote Idol, which starts a couple of weeks later.

    Boy, I hope Jakob or Ellenore wins this year, tho I like the others mentioned. These two are my favorites. I am putting my money on Jakob, who is the best dancer from a technical standpoint and is often very engaging. And ironically, I have been comparing him to Adam lately. He is someone who tried to do sports but realized he could not, and at the age of 12 he started to attend theater performances in NYC and decided to become an artist and is now proficient.

    Oh, and this thread IS about Adam, so it only makes sense to talk about HIS performance. The SYTYCD program gets its own threads each week. ;)

    Adam Lambert captured the attention of the nation this year during the eighth season of AMERICAN IDOL. Throughout his much-celebrated IDOL journey, Lambert surprised and impressed the judges every week with his takes on various musical genres. His out-of-this-world vocal range and unique musical style has helped Lambert conquer the Billboard charts with multiple debuts on the Hot 100 and the Hot Digital Songs charts. His first album, ‘For Your Entertainment’  (19 Recordings/RCA), recently debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard Charts with 198,469 albums sold in the first week.

    The comments comparing these gigs for Adam and Kris remind me of the stuff I read on here before the AMAs. “Poor Kris,” he didn’t get the “accolade” Adam did. “Do they usually give standing ovations at the AMAs? Because Adam is sure to get one when he blow the roof off the place.”

    Adam will get gigs, Kris will get gigs. They both got SYTYCD gigs and Letterman gigs. Kris will get stuff Adam doesn’t, and vice versa. But it’s risky to say one thing is better or to count your chickens, the AMA being a case in point. This even applies to first week album sales and a lot of other things. It ain’t over till it’s over.

    Sherrie Sheperd and Elizabeth Hasselbeck talked about getting tweets about being nice to Adam when he is a guest.

    Actually, in context, they said in response something like, ‘why wouldn’t we be nice to him?” My impression is that Adam and the women of The View will all be on their best behavior and careful about what they say.

    Barbara said they will tape the interview because people seem to be a bit afraid of what he might perform.

    I thought they were taping it due to a schedule conflict?

    Barbara ‘forgot’  that part….I’m pretty sure that was supposed to be the ‘company line’ .

    At this point, it doesn’t matter IMO. Adam gets to promote his album and be his charming self; Barbara gets to promote her special; and it takes some heat off ABC. But tiger92 you are probably right.

  • girlygirl

    sumidol

    I was referring to the fact that Kris has performed LLWD at all his tv and radio appearances as well as at all is concerts he’s doing — and he has had more of these than Adam has. Kris has probably lost count of how many times he’s performed LLWD live, but it’s probably somewhere around 2 or 3 dozen times. Meanwhile, Adam performed FYE live, what once? And WWFM live maybe 4 or 5 times so far? Hopefully Adam will start getting more gigs where he can perform his music. THEN he and his fans can get tired of hearing WWFM. But considering how few times he’s performed it live, I’m not sure why anyone would be sick of hearing it already.

    Oh and I expect Adam’s appearance on The View to be extremely polite with nothing controversial happening.

    Also, while this is a nice gig for both Adam and Kris, SYTYCD is about the dancers, not the musical guests. Adam and Kris will spend 4-5 minutes on the show performing their song and then leave. It shouldn’t be the focal point of the show.

    The best thing that Adam’s fans cand do right now is support WWFM in the radio. It is his current single, in the future he will have others singles.

    Yes, call for WWFM, b/c that is now the single, and FYE may be be promoted in conjunction with the video, but RCA is going to make a new video (whenever Adam has a few seconds available; not this week) and I expect it to take a 180 from FYE’s mv.

    I still don’t get the unhappiness re: Adam performing. There will be plenty of dancing before him and the results after him. I would have loved to have seen him perform MA or Strut b/c they seem to be better fits w/ the show, but again, that wouldn’t make sense, even tho Adam sang MA (and not FYE, ha) on the Early Show (no more FYE on the air; look for it in concert). I guarantee you there will be an Idol tie-in. This isn’t random. It just works out reaaaally well for Adam/Idol fans. BTW, band member Tommy isn’t too happy about flying to NYC today, per a tweet. He should get used to it. ;)

Oh and please wear those really tight leather pants you wore on The Early Show, OK? As far as what song he will sing? I look at waiting for each of his singles to drop as foreplay, so it’s all good.

    BTW, band member Tommy isn’t too happy about flying to NYC today, per a tweet. He should get used to it.

    Where is this coming from? He said:

    ‘ELLO I’m kinda on the same boat as @longineu haven’t really slept at all. Haha.’ 

    Longineu said ‘Gonna sleep on the plane!!! Up all night with my lady! ‘

    This is how rumors get started!
    Tommy is tired and hasn’t slept at all turns into:

    “Tommy isn’t happy about flying to New York.” “Tommy is tired of being in the band.” “Tommy wants to quit.” “Tommy doesn’t get along with Adam anymore.” “Tommy and Adam broke up.” “Tommy and Adam broke off their engagement.” “Tommy and Adam won’t be adopting a little glitterbaby.”

  • Truthiness

    Well cool for Adam, just like I was happy for Kris getting that gig. That synergy between SYTYCD/AI continues!

    And of course Adam was going to do WWFM, it’s his single and of course he isn’t going to do anything, but what he has done previous when singing it, just him in front of the band. Hopefully the sound at wherever they are doing the finale is good. That’s all I care about at this point.

    Oh and Babs, I appreciate your giant stick and all, but

    Barbara said they will tape the interview because people seem to be a bit afraid of what he might perform.

    er if Adam really does have scheduling conflicts, and given his gigs/appearances being on opposite coasts, that’s valid, than keep to that. I’m not hugely fond of her playing into this ‘ohhh he’s so dangerous, so we have to tape him!’ when dude, he was going to be taped because he was going to be in LA the next day, or whatever. Adam’s schedule confuses me and is very zig zag-y from what I can see. Oh and he wasn’t hugely dangerous on Ellen, The Early Show or Letterman. And won’t be on SYTYCD either.

  • Mrs.P

    Why would anyone want the dancers to be dancing while Adam is singing. Who in the world would even be interested in watching them. Once the show is over they will just fade into oblivion. I think the only dancer I have seen again is Courtney and that is because she danced on an Adam video. Nigel seems to realize that to get anyone to watch his little finale show he will have to have some kind of power in the pimp spot. AI had to do it all season so people would continue to watch that program.

    This is the fate of dancers. They’re almost always in the background.

    However, if you tune in to Dancing with the Stars, you can see three former SYTYCD folks prominently featured on that show. And if you get tickets to the current Lady Gaga extravaganza, you can see the fabulous Mark Kanemura, of SYTYCD, dance in his wonderful way.

    So, yeah, some of us would be interested in watching them.

    Adam himself seems to have quite a penchant for hiring dancers to dance while he’s singing, you know!

  • sidewalkstory

    Hey guys’ ¦I predict there is still a chance that Adam will be on NYE, so be a little more positive, it helps!!!!! They haven’t made the appearance list public yet, so they may be reconsidering’ ¦hope hope!

    I don’t even want Adam to be on ABC’s NYrsEve anymore. They don’t deserve Adam’s publicity.

    Sherrie Sheperd and Elizabeth Hasselbeck talked about getting tweets about being nice to Adam when he is a guest. Too bad Whoopi is in England and won’t be on the panel when he is there.

    Geez’ ¦’ ¦..he’s already got a mother and even she wouldn’t do that!! (clearone)

    C’mon clearone, you should know better by now, lol Some have no discretion when it comes to Twitter. I was not surprised in the least.

    Always loved Mark’s quirky style on SYTYCD. There are some Lady Gaga tour videos on YouTube now that show him never too far away from Gaga herself. He’s really fantastic and in great shape, too. He and Adam on the same stage…delicious, hot eye candy…

  • suebrody

    In some ways, I want Adam to be on Carson Daly’s program or whatever…b/c if he’s on ABC they may spin it. OTOH, the more exposure Adam gets, IMO, the better it is for him. And I think he’s going to KILL IT on The View. I could not be less concerned.

    As far as SYTYCD, I am thrilled about Mark (Mark/Chelsie/Courtney, my favorite dancers from S4, are all getting work, which is terrific). However, the show is what it is. Adam and Kris give them more publicity and tie into Idol, which is probably why the two of them are on there in the first place.

    Win/win.

  • justshootme

    Yay for Adam on the finale! Now if Ryan and Ashley get the boot this week, I may actually be able to get through the whole thing without fast forwarding!

    And personally I’m still holding out hope that Adam will get picked up for Carson Daly’s NYE gig. I don’t care if Ryan has higher ratings, I’d rather Adam not be on NYRE at this point. In my perfect world Adam and Elton John can duet. THAT would be worth staying up til midnight for.

  • Mary102

    I don’t even want Adam to be on ABC’s NYrsEve anymore. They don’t deserve Adam’s publicity.

    LOL – kinda with you on that one, sidewalkstory. I almost expect some kind of PR move from ABC, to invite Adam back to the NYE thing at the last minute. It already seems like they’re scripting every bizarre move of this thing with Adam (from the AMA hyping through the cancellations, to The View appearance).

    Okay, sorry thought it was current because its what they are showing online. When is it updated? BTW, it is getting airplay – was spun twice last night on WPLJ NY – which is the #1 station in NYC (they are also paying WWFM)

  • Overboard

    You never know. Things could change. The FYE video is now on the VH1 Top 20 countdown and is being shown on MTV as well.

    Well, this week is already over. My guess for FYE’s sales is 10-15k. That + no airplay means he wont be on the Hot100. MTV/VH1 do not play music videos enough to make the song sell the amounts that it needs to chart without any radio play. FYE as a single is dead barring any kind of miracle (something like being used for a commercial / TV show).

    EDIT: Okay, “Zero” radio play was an overstatement, but the fact remains that it is not growing at all, RCA is pushing a different single, and a lot of stations that were playing it are not anymore. Also, the Hot100 is updated on wednesdays I believe.

  • tamalepie

    I got this off wikipedia. It looks like the musical guests for Dick Clark’s Rockin’ NYE have already been chosen and announced somewhere…

    New Year’s Rockin Eve 2010 will be broadcast by ABC on Thursday, December 31st from 10 to 11 P.M. EST, and continuing from 11:30 P.M. to 2:05 A.M. Musical guests will include The Black Eyed Peas, Colbie Caillat, Robin Thicke, Keri Hilson, Selena Gomez, and others. Once more, Fergie will serve as hostess for the pre-taped music segments, taped in Las Vegas, Nevada[11]

    On December 2, 2009, American Idol 8 runner-up Adam Lambert issued a statement claiming he had been booked to appear but that the booking was canceled under pressure from ABC after his controversial performance at the 2009 American Music Awards. Neither ABC nor Dick Clark Productions have confirmed whether or not Lambert had indeed been booked.

    I am with the team hoping Adam can be booked on another show. Not really feeling any love for ABC at the moment. Katy and Elton would be awesome but I guess things are not that easy.

  • suebrody

    Well, the guys in Adam’s band really like Twitter. They are the ones that actually tweet every day (except Lisa; she just learned how to do it from Adam and the other guys, and she hasn’t been on since then). I think it’s up to the individual. Twitter is a way of communication for a helluva lot of performers/entertainers/columnists. Adam has said on more than one interview that he enjoys using Twitter, tho I imagine he reads his tweets selectively, due to the number of them he receives every day (like, OMG, @adamlambert, you are like the best singer evah, love you lots, etc.). You don’t have to like it or use it, but it’s pretty popular. It started out as a marketing tool; not sure if it’s really used that way anymore, tho the college I work for DOES use it to get out information. However, we primarily use facebook (which is NOT free, whereas Twitter is).

    Kherington is the girl who was in the Fame remake; sadly, the movie tanked. Demitri is also on DWTS. Pasha and Anya and Travis frequently choreograph for SYTYCD. Demitri has as well.

    WWFM has received three or four adds today. Not watching FYE anymore. It is finally on KISS 108′s playlist in Boston, but not on MIX yet.

  • saga

    OK I had this great idea today while driving my car and listening to Soaked. If he has a set for NYE (several songs), he should open with that one.

    Think about a grand piano with Lisa playing. LG on the drums. It’s very piano and drum heavy in the beginning. Adam draped somehwere looking gorgous. Very dramatic no? Great way to start your NYE session!

    And this illustrates exactly why the cancellation was sooooo stupid. 1) he could have been on well after midnight, and 2) the music segments are all pre-taped! So there was no other reason than punishment. Altho honestly, he has gotten more publicity from the cancellation than he would have received by being on the show. I haven’t known anyone in years who watches that whole show. Most people I know (of all ages, young and old) turn it on at 11:45, watch the ball drop, and turn it off at 12:15 am….

    “It was called “raunchy,” said Walters.

    “Mm-hmm,” said Lambert.

    “Lewd. You … groped a female dancer, you kissed a male musician…. Why did you do this?”

    “To be honest with you, I just, adrenaline is a funny, funny thing,” Lambert told Walters. “And I got … I got really excited. You can’t plan everything — if I did a performance exactly how I rehearsed it, it would be so boring.”

    Walters asked Lambert if he regretted the performance.

    “No,” said Lambert. “No regrets.”

    Walters pointed out that “Good Morning America” canceled a scheduled appearance by Lambert after the AMAs.

    “You were too lewd to be in the show,” said Walters. “What effect is this going to have on your career?”

    “I’m not sure,” said Lambert. “Um, I — you know, the other thing is, I — I don’t think that, you can really … jump to conclusions about me as an artist based on one performance, that’s, that’s an ignorant thing to do.”

    Actually, that’s not a good number. He’s going to have a drop of about 80% over last week, and other artists didn’t have that big a drops from last week to this one, so it’s not just everyone. And not just that SuBo is inexplicable.

    ‘Lewd. You ‘ ¦ groped a female dancer, you kissed a male musician’ ¦. Why did you do this?’ 

    Okay, so heterosexual groping is “lewd.” I get that.

    But homosexual kissing is “lewd,” why?

    Notice how, in the heat of the moment when people don’t have time to edit their responses, the idea that, yeah, it was the male-on-male kissing that seemed lewd to them just kind of pops out, lol. Nobody wants to admit that they feel this way any more (and I said “feel,” not “think”). … But it seems to me that this spontaneous quote makes it pretty clear that many folks do.

    Of course, now I’ll find out that this isn’t really what any of the women said, lol!

    Some did drop 80 and some dropped 70. No big deal. He’s way over 200,000 albums sold in only 2 weeks and that is good. By the time the sale reports are in he may be halfway to gold already.

  • suebrody

    He’s only going to sell fewer than 50,000 copies of FYE? That sounds terrible, compared to the 189,000 last week. :( He better get a lot more adds for WWFM (which he seems to be getting). At least he has some good TV gigs coming up (along with Z-100 Jingle Ball emcee gig). And maybe SYTYCD *will* help move some more copies of the album. I think there’s a decent chance WWFM will go Top 40 this week…will that help?

    it’s a bad drop, but it still will get him close to halfway to gold in two weeks, which is a pretty good sign that you can get to gold eventually, all other things being equal.

    And Adam’s radio play really hasn’t been going on enough to stabilize his sales (if that’s going to happen.) When Kris’s song was this new on radio there were a lot of complaints that nothing good was happening with his single sales, for example, (his album wasn’t out yet. … But with his radio play spreading to more cities over the past few weeks and more people around the country probably hearing LLWD repeatedly now, both the single sales and the album sales are stabilizing…. That’s a possibility for Adam, too, even though we can’t say for sure that it’ll happen yet.

  • unique28v

    ETA: unique28v, that sounds a bit better.

    Its all in how you look at things. one more sale will get him closer to gold. No one will care if he got there in 3 weeks or 3 months, just as long as he gets there. Once we get to gold we reach for plantinum. Positive thinking equals positive results!! lol

    Of course it would be great if he keept selling 100,000 albums a week but its not realistic. I do think with all of this week’s appreances, his sales could go up next week so we can get to gold faster!! lol

    This is pretty much in line with what I thought he would do….i figured he would have a huge drop, sell around 30-50K this week, especially with WWFM just starting out….its not great, its not terrible….but its fine…he is well on his way

  • BeckyMD

    He’s only going to sell fewer than 50,000 copies of FYE? That sounds terrible, compared to the 189,000 last week.

    If the number keeps incoming at the same rate, it will end up at 53,000, a 73% drop, but will make FYE almost half gold. If the later number turns out to be better like what happened last week, it may have sold 55,000, a 72% drop and already half gold in two week.

    ETA, btw this’s just me trying to be optimistic :D We have all good news the whole day. I want to keep in a positive mood.

    John Mayer had a 72% drop from his first week to his second week.

  • suebrody

    They are playing WWFM on Z-100. They asked the caller if she was a Glambert . She said yes. Then he asked if she was a Claymate first, and she said, Nope, just a Glambert…lol

    I may never turn this station off. :) Keep the spins coming, Z-100! They must have added it last week, tho I don’t see it on the Song History list. Maybe I missed it?

    I will not worry. 250K is good in two weeks, if we can get it to 500K soon. Go, Gold!

    These drop-offs are pretty large, tho, aren’t they? John Mayer’s surprises me; I have just started hearing his single. How long did it take Cook to go gold and then platinum? Just curious.

    I am looking forward to Adam on Logo tonight.

    ETA, btw this’s just me trying to be optimistic :D We have all good news the whole day. I want to keep in a positive mood.

    Even if he only sold 40,000 last week, that still takes him nearly halfway to gold. That’s perfectly fine for two weeks in, when your radio play hasn’t really kicked in at all yet.

    When LLWD was just beginning to climb the charts, there was lots of consternation about it not affecting sales of the single at all (album wasn’t out yet), but then when the song had been out there a while, and more people had had a chance to hear it, they did start buying the single, and now it looks as if his album sales are stabilizing too. … It just takes time, is all.

    Plus, Adam doesn’t just have WWFM out there. He also has the FYE video. If that can climb the chart and hang on for a while at VH1, then that will also help album sales eventually.

    None of this stuff is instantaneous. People have to have a little experience of your music before they feel like buying.

    Well at least Nigel isn’t pimping Kris’ or Adam’s performances like he did Katy Holmes’ WTF moment last season.

    People seem to get DWTS and SYTYCD confused. DWTS has live cover music/singers and for some guest singers the pro dancers will come out and dance. Not always – Shakira had her own drumming ladies for one of her songs this past season.

    For SYTYCD the music is the artist recording. The guest performer doesn’t have to have anyone dancing – One Republic come to mind for an act that didn’t have dancers when they performed on the Results Show (although Mia had done a beautiful piece to Apologize the previous season).

  • bridgeymah

    With the constant stream of new albums releasing at this time of year and people’s preoccupation with all things holiday sales drops for any artists don’t surprise me. If he falls into selling about 50k a week that’s pretty solid.

    Appearances like SYTYCD will help keep interest in album ticking along and he is such a great fit for a show like that. Hope he has some dancers performing along with him singing.

    Susan Boyle may still be #1 but if you look at it in context her sales drop off was pretty massive also (in 75% range I think) – but then that’s probably because everyone who still plays music on CD players has already bought her album! :-)

  • LaurelG

    I don’t remember the exact numbers, but when we extrapolated the first 36-37% from the first week, Adam was projected to come in around 150,000. He ended up coming in at 198,000. I’m not sure which stores traditionally report first (Walmart? But not the urban stores? Also, someone said the first day’s numbers tend to favor Country artists?) but I wouldn’t be surprised if Adam’s percentage of decline improves in the second and third wave of HDD projections.

  • suebrody

    I’m back. People are more friendly here.

    Yeah, that Katie Holmes debacle (lip syncing to Singing in the Rain). Then when people on Twitter criticized Nigel for her stupid performance after he pimped her so hard when the SYTYCD contestants could have done a far better job (granted, it was part of the foundation he, Adam Shankman, and I think Katie co-founded to help students with arts opportunities), he snapped back on twitter and threatened to block the people who criticized him. It was one hot mess. It’s better to just perform, and I will always remember One Republic’s performance b/c it was for Apologize , which is a beautiful song (and I *liked* Kris’s performance Top 2), but, unlike Kris, Ryan Tedder was pitchy most of the time. ;)

    So hopeful for good numbers for FYE; this is a great album (have I mentioned that in the past?) and I hope it gets the exposure it deserves.

    WWFM 7 Adds today so far. And 3 spins in tampa today already

  • suebrody

    Do we think it will get up to 1000 to get into the Top 40 this week? I can’t access the number of spins it gets per day, tho I know a couple of people can.

    Hope we get a new thread for Adam’s Logo special. ;)

  • student_Inlove

    I found this in Wikipedia…’ The Fame is the debut studio album by American pop recording artist Lady Gaga. It was released on August 19, 2008. In the United States, The Fame debuted at number seventeen on the Billboard 200. Also, this one ” Her debut single, “Just Dance,” was released to radio in April 2008, and her full-length album debut, The Fame, followed in August. Featuring fellow Akon affiliate Colby O’Donis, “Just Dance” took much of 2008 to catch on. The song debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in August, at which time it had already become a massive club hit, but it didn’t reach number one until January 2009.” http://www.mtv.tv/article/103994_Lady_GaGa.htm

    For me Adam is going very well :) :)

    Nope…i predicted somewher on this blog that it will get there, but not until after the New Year

    @lyndseyparker

    SYTYCD + Adam Lambert = Lyndsey Heaven. Can’t wait for the finale! (Plus Kris Allen performs on SYTYCD this week!) about 6 hours ago from Twitterrific

    Yes guys, Adam Lambert is performing on the SYTYCD finale 12/16. Very exciting! about 6 hours ago from Twitterrific

    Fangirl Lyndsey–I am thinking she might be able to interview the winner (Team Jakob!) *and* Adam.

    Thanks, mmb. I guess I can hold out till 2010 for Top 40. Something to look forward to!

    BTW, I tweeted Monte and Tommy to let them know I was kidding about Tommy not liking to fly’ ¦sometimes things get lost in translatio

    Wait, now he doesn’t like to fly? Where is that coming from?

  • sr4mjc

    oh cool, 9 is better!

    Do we think it will get up to 1000 to get into the Top 40 this week? I can’t access the number of spins it gets per day, tho I know a couple of people can.

    WWFM has 206 spins this week, by 6pm ET. It counts from Sun-Saturday.The two spins from OHP last night are in this number. More spins on OHP next Saturday will help. But these are split between Top40 and HAC
    152 Top 40 and 54 HAC.

    It has 67 spins today by 6pm

    So, it may come close. The Top40 stations really seem to like it and their adds day is Tues.

  • suebrody

    Third spin I’ve heard of WWFM on Z-100 today, w/ the djay also noting that Adam is the special guest (host, I think) at Friday night’s Jingle Ball. I hope it’s not as lame as last night’s. This jingle ball has a lot of big names, and Kris and Jordin are there, so this *should* be a good gig.

    Boy, is he going to be tired by the end of the week…

    Interesting stat on Lady GaGa. Never would have guessed that. Makes me feel better about FYE.

    No, Tommy DOES like to fly. I was kidding b/c…eh, NVM, I’m tired ;). The boyz promise to tweet as soon as they land.

    Ha – you are better at pulling yourself away than me lady!

    Oh luvadamlambert! I just clicked on your name and see that you are 12 just like my baby girl Baylee – she loves Adam too, she loves dancing to his songs and is the silliest thing, makes me laugh. His cd is a lot of fun isnt it?

  • lucy

    Well at least Nigel isn’t pimping Kris’ or Adam’s performances like he did Katy Holmes’ WTF moment last season.

    Something tells me he was well paid to pimp that one, lol….

    Plus, he kind of *had* to pimp it, since who was really going to tune in dying to see Katie Holmes sing and dance? That one was on there for reasons *other* than ratings, whereas Kris and Adam are booked because they themselves will bring in some more viewers for the show!

  • Grammie Kari

    Looking forward to seeing both guys perform!
