    Here’s an interview Kris did with 95.5 at The Grammy event.  Hope that wrist heels sooner than later.  I can’t wait to hear new music from Kris and can’t wait for him to get back into the studios.   But..first things first.  He needs to heal.  That is most important.

    Kris without the guitar is twice (thrice) the singer/performer/entertainer he was with it. 

    Certainly, I want his wrist to heal asap, but I don’t want him to go back to strummin’n’sangin’ as before.

    Jessica also tweeted pics of herself with Kris and Jordan yesterday.

    MissMyEm, thanks for posting the interview with Kris! Good to hear he’s hoping to get into studio in the Summer. I was bummed yesterday thinking he might not be able to for another year due to his wrist.

    Personally I don’t care if Kris never plays the guitar during a performance again, because it’s his voice and persona that appeals to me.  I agree that not being able to play the guitar has forced Kris
    to up his performance skills and he has come through amazingly.
    The thing is though, playing the guitar is obviously very very important to Kris, so I hope he is able to get back to a professional level.

    So happy to see so many Idols at these events, some were by invitation only.

    Adam looks simply divine. Love to see him with less leather and no gloves sometimes. This suit always looks great on him.

    I am glad that non-fans finally noticing what Kris fans have known all along – that Kris is amazing performer with or without guitar. Here he is 3 years ago at Z100 Jingle Ball (no guitar) http://youtu.be/gKiSD_diO54

    I partially agree with the above comment.
     
    I understand for writing and for on his recordings he prefers to play -  but I really feel he is even more engaging and electric while performing without playing an instrument (not for every song but for the majority).

    Unless they are nominated or presenting, I wouldn’t expect any of these guys to go to the actual Grammys. I was told today that there are no comped tickets, not even for the nominees — and it costs more than $3000 per ticket. That’s going to be way too expensive for most of these guys, especially when they aren’t going to get any real press. Better for them to skip the show and maybe just hit up some of the parties.

    JHud and Jordin Sparks at Clive’s party.

    I completely disagree that the $3000 ticket precludes most of them from attending the Grammys.  It is a high profile event and a prime opportunity to network and make connections, etc.  There may be reasons why many of them aren’t attending, but in most cases I don’t believe it has anything to do with the price of the ticket.  Heck, for most of them $3000 is a mere drop in the bucket.

    i don’t think the Grammy’s themselves are much of a networking opportunity at all.  Its a concert in the staples center.  Most artists do not attend unless they are nominated, performing/presenting, or have an album dropping soon and in promo mode so walk the red carpet etc.  If you are not doing that, its pretty much just an expensive concert ticket.  The parties, radio day, and other events etc are a different story and certainly losts of artists participate in those events.  But there is little benefit to just purchasing a ticket and attending the show

     As were music lovers around the world . . .

  • elliegrll

    I think that most networking would happen at the pre and post Grammy parties.  Most idol alums, especially the ones who aren’t on the Press’s radar, aren’t going to get a lot of attention from attending the show.
