Pickler ‘100 Proof’ positive about new album – NASHVILLE – Kellie Pickler’s 100 Proof album, out Tuesday, begins with an opening line for the ages. “I stay torn between killin’ him and lovin’ him.” In Where’s Tammy Wynette, the former American Idol singer invokes the spirit of the late country queen, figuring that only a honky-tonk angel could help her figure out how to run a household while hanging onto a nightlife-loving man, or “how you fry a skillet of chicken in high heels and a skirt.” – Read more at USA Today

Cat Deeley teases ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ season 9, makes us feel warm and fuzzy inside – Rain has a way of making everything gloomy, but it didn’t dampen the spirits of the perennially sunny Cat Deeley or the hundreds of hopeful New Yorkers who auditioned this morning for Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance. Deeley and some 500-odd dancers braved the a.m. weather in Manhattan as day 1 of auditions for season 9 (!) of the hit dance competition rolled into New York (the third of five audition locations this year).

Darren Criss becomes Broadway’s $4 million man – In his third and final week starring in the musical How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, the Glee star again proved himself a remarkable box office draw. Aside from Daniel Radcliffe’s final week in the show, an anomalous nine-show week that grossed $1.9 million, the revival had the three most lucrative weeks of its 11-month run with Criss in the leading role. For the last three weeks, How to Succeed took in more than $1.3 million per week — just over $4 million total — a figure that was consistently at or near the production’s potential gross. And there was only a modest dip of nearly $12,000 in Criss’ final week, which suggests that the small-screen Warbler may be able to sustain a longer Broadway run should producers want him to return during his summer hiatus from Glee. – Read more at Entertainment Weekly

    Saw this interesting article where Michael Orland and Dorian Holley from AI were talking about David A. going on a mission. Here’s part of it.

    “David Archuleta has one of the most beautiful voices of any
    contestants on the show.” They remember watching Hollywood week on TV, a
    couple weeks before they were to go in to get to work on the Top 24
    David was onstage singing. One of the background singers was just behind
    him, weeping uncontrollably at the beauty of his voice. Dorian said, “I
    kept rewinding to watch my friend Lynn Fiddmont cry, and to enjoy the
    pure sound he made. The best part about David, though, is he has a smile
    and a spirit to match his great voice. Coaching him was a pleasure.”

    As to David’s decision to break away from music for a bit, both
    Michael and Dorian felt that it is a big one. They said, “There will
    always be the question as to whether or not he will be greeted with open
    arms; will his music be embraced again? “We say yes. People who love
    him will still love him when he returns; provided he is making music
    they want to hear. In some ways a break will help him. Absence makes the
    heart grow fonder. Most importantly, David must do what his heart tells
    him, and what is more important than traveling and helping others? We
    believe music fans will be eager to hear a David Archuleta CD in two or
    three years, when he is ready, and when he has something deeper and more
    interesting to say, more power to him.” If you are interested in the entire article it is http://voices.yahoo.com/article/9316235/can-david-archuleta-expect-success-2014-10856691.html?cat=33

    David’s vlog from Manila was amazing. David always communicates to his fans even when he’s thousands of miles away. We love him because he shows his love for us by letting us know and share in his fantastic journey. We are so lucky to be his fans. We have nothing but the highest regard for David. It’s a mutual admiration society and We’re loving it.

    Really enjoyed David Archuleta’s video showing events of the week with his acting and a Mall appearance where thousands of fans gathered.  David was pleasantly surprised as he looked out and up on two floors of fans gathered to see him.  He sang Crush and answered questions including whether he would come back after his mission and which he answered I’LL BE BACK  to large screams there and around the world. (US and other fans round the world were listening on UStream til the wee hours of the a.m.) From all reports it sounds like he is doing well and all the staff tweeters seem enthused.
    David is also recording the theme song:  NanditoAko   Rumor has it that it will be available on ITunes.

    it looks like it was mistakenly tweeted by the people that did the remix (or by those people’s label/mgmt). It seems to be a legit remix (not just something done by a fan) but it also appears they may have been asked by mgmt to take the link down

    Read an article in the “Huffington Post” that Scotty McCreery will be appearing in an episode of “Hart of Dixie” airing April 23, 2012. Not sure of the authenticity of this article but hope there is some truth to it.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_AGWO435FL6UN2ICRVTFLWRJZSA Lexie

    HuffPost TV has just learned exclusively that “American Idol” Season 10
    winner Scotty McCreery will be making an appearance on The CW’s “Hart of
    Dixie” this spring. In the episode, which is slated to air on April 23, McCreery will be
    playing himself, singing his hit country single “The Trouble With
    Girls,” which he will perform during a pivotal scene between Zoe (Rachel
    Bilson) and George (Scott Porter).

    Did anybody see that 14 minute Adam interview with ET Canada? It is so good but I can’t seem to bring it over. Adam talks about how stunned he was that Pharrell wanted to work with him and it seems like the interviewer heard some of the tracks too. It’s on youTube but I can’t seem to grab it on iPad.

    That must be a popular colour palette. It’s the same basic one they used for Durbin. Even the highlights look similar. Well, there is only so much one can do differently with an album cover these days.

    It’s an eye-catching cover and I like the “Trespassing” font.

    There is a lot of photo-chopping, but that’s what they do with these album covers.
