    The C&W stars are kept pretty darn busy.

    April 18, 2013 Chinese Music Chart Awards, Macau. Adam performs 2 songs and he is nominated for the ‘Most popular & influential international artist in China’ category.

  • stargazed

    China is way off my radar. I’m looking at AI Thursday night. Go Clay! Go Fanty!

  • tripp_ncwy

    Shonzi w/Kris Allen, who stopped by the 105.9 Kiss Fm Studio!

  • YankeeFan08

    I hope Adam wins the award. Looking forward to the videos.

  • Nadine_Bitch

    I really love how the Chinese embraces Adam. I lost count of the numbers he actually fly to China alone. Wish him the best and wishing he’ll win. I would want him to have that cute trophy:

    And going with this tweet, Adam won’t be coming back to US this soon.

    Adam accepted that invitation ,so he will stay in China for a few days :D

  • Ira

    Watching the greatest male vocalist to ever appear on a reality TV- Show, Josh Ledet tonight as the White House salutes Memphis soul.

    “China is way off my radar.”

    Here it is:

  • tripp_ncwy

    Kris did a brief interview and sang Better With You live on air.

  • Nadine_Bitch

    LOL But seriously though what I love about shows in China is that they are being watch by few hundreds of million people. Crazy if you think and AI audience looks pale in comparison. Just think about the exposure he would get. Adam first performed at The Voice of China watched by 400million and from then he already had a concert in mainland china and keeps being invited. Exposure, baby:)

  • ali_359921

    I don’t get why people think of America as the only place to be successful .. !!

  • bridgette12

    Interesting, I wonder what they are working on In China for Adam.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Yes, the exposure from telecasts in China has been tremendous. It’s so great to see Adam develop these international fan bases and connect with so many people of different cultures. I guess that music really is the “universal language’. Plus, Adam’s personal charm and nice guy demeanor seems to transcend language barriers.

  • MyDailyComment

    Even celebrities from other countries want fame and success in america…

  • bestmusic

    Looking forward to Clay`s return to AI. Sorry but I always have to mute Fanny.

  • lovetheusa1776

    A terrific opportunity for him – to break into that market. Congrats to his team for that possibility. His extraordinary voice and on-stage charisma, once seen, should provide all the entry needed.

  • tripp_ncwy

    Chad Taylor @ChadTaylorRadio
    @AmericanIdol season 8 champ @KrisAllen will be stopping by the @mix949 studio tomorrow morning between 9-10A. He’s in MN Wed nite 4 a show!

  • jeff2683

    Looking forward to seeing Clay Aiken on Idol. He is a great entertainer as well as a great singer. Love his foundation!

  • girlygirl

    Video from last night’s show in St. Louis of Kris performing Michael Jackson’s “Heal the World” — which he dedicated to the people of Boston

  • lovetheusa1776

    That was just beautiful – thanks.

  • girlygirl

    Request song from Kris at tonight’s show in Lawrence, KS — Somewhere Over the Rainbow

  • JosieX

    Just watched, he was amazing, as usual!

  • bridgette12

    Of course everyone wants fame and success in the US, the same way everyone wants to travel and tour overseas.

  • lovetheusa1776

    Such a huge market – anything commercial would be very lucrative.

  • bridgette12

    That would be great, maybe some more endorsements.

  • mmb

    Adam spent much of last year in the US doing TV appearances, a radio tour, radio shows, and print media. He hosted VH1 Divas just a few months ago. He has been touring overseas since. He has has hardly been MIA in the US nor is there a need to “bring him back” to the US (he just performed at Miami pride this week). He has a few US concerts booked over the next few months. When he is ready to release new music he will be more visible in the US again. I’m also llooking forwad to seeing Clay and Fantasia

  • mmb

    This is true. Its also true that most major US pop and r&b (and even country) stars these days want fame and success overseas — that is why they tour and do TV appearances, print media etc. overseas. In this day and age everyone wants to be Global.

  • Jennifer Woolley

    This is so cool!!

    “@glam_alidol: 2013 Chinese Music Awards ? Dancers doing rehearsal of @AdamLambert Trespassing

  • Jennifer Woolley

    China s actually part of our world, lol. It’s a country that the US should know much about, considering the financial ties the US has with China. As MMB said below, Adam has done a great deal in the US last year. I get it tho, if an artist isn’t someone you’re interested in, who keeps track? It’s just like I wouldn’t know anything about Clay or his appearances but can’t wait to see Fantasia, love her!!

  • bridgette12

    Excited to see the number of dancers they are going to have for this performance.

  • Nadine_Bitch

    I can say the same about people who I don’t follow too. It really surprised me a week ago to learned that Clay had a single out a year ago or has something lined up for him because I never heard anything about him after his tour.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    I think that Clay has a good voice, but because of his singing style, odd phrasing and poor interpretation of songs, I would not consider him as a great singer. The pilot for a late night radio talk/music show that he recently taped (with fans calling in to ask questions) is supposed to be targeted to people his own age (33 years old), so I expect him to sing something on Idol that will appeal to viewers in that age demographic.

  • Norma Wilcox

    OMG it doesn’t look good for Kris Allen! The places he is performing are mostly 600 or less capacity! Interesting!

  • irockhard

    He should do some opening gigs then.

  • blackberryharvest

    What do you mean? Elaborate?

  • standtotheright

    A whole lot of venues in this country are 600 or fewer capacity. It’s always better to sell well at a low-capacity room (improving buzz for the next go-around) than to have half-empty higher-capacity rooms.

  • Allison

    because we are here.
