Idology: Who Are the New Season 11 Front-Runners? And Who Should’ve Stayed in Vegas? – If American Idol‘s Season 11 Vegas Week was a slot machine, then the Idoloonie nation pulled the lever and came up with a trio of sevens during the show’s Las Vegas callbacks telecast last week. The jackpot? Producers treated us to more than 50 contestants singing — and a few of ‘em showed enough talent that it’s not inconceivable to think they might come close to “a moment like this” by the end of May. – Read more at TV Line

    Good for Scotty for attending with his school choir. He certainly doesn’t appear to have let the fame change him in anyway. (James’ wife Heidi actually wrote a beautiful piece about this very thing on her blog) I greatly admire how well-grounded he continues to be.

    North Carolina must take their music very seriously (or know someone influential?) to have many choirs invited to perform from that state. And not only choirs– my nephew’s high school band from Hendersonville was regularly invited to perform there.

    And a shout out to the Eastern Wind Symphony who is providing the music! My daughter’s clarinet teacher is a member. I’ll have to ask her if Scotty got a solo.

    Totally agree with you about Scotty.
    He is now a celebrity and in my eyes, a little rising star.
    YET, he has chosen to lead a normal life and remained so grounded……..which makes him all the more endearing.
    Kudos to his parents for raising him well.

    eta: I hope some vids surface later.

  • hoa_teca

    I don’t think there will be a solo for Scotty. He is in Washington as a choir member and attends rehearsal with everyone else, stays in the same room with 3 other boys. My guess is he will try to lay low and do his part well in the choir only.

    Here’s more news about this event.

    Seem like the choirs will perform for the president.

    For anyone who is interested and missed the live stream of David A’s show — you can still access at the link MJ posted above (http://www.hayag.com/TV5kapatid). Just mouse over where it says TV5kapatid at the top and you’ll see windows pop up at the bottom of the screen to watch previous content. I think they archive up to 10 hours. At this point I think you’d be looking at 2 hours ago but obviously as the day goes on, it will move further back.

    The show will be airing at the same time each weekday for the next 5 weeks. Here in the US, that’s around 8:15am est. Each episode runs for about 30 minutes. Time seems a little fluid there on schedule lol so don’t expect it to start right on time or to run an exact 30 minutes. I think today’s was about 40 or 45 min long.

    Lots of excitement for the premiere episode. Nandito Ako was trending worldwide on twitter this morning and in lots of individual countries, including the US. So ready to see the entire series!

    “Bench Idol: David Archuleta” http://www.malaya.com.ph/02212012/ent1.html

    Cool and casual in Bench pieces, David Archuleta proves that his
    boy-next-door looks are just as alluring as his singing voice. Bright
    plaid button downs, graphic tees, and track jackets give him a look
    reminiscent of a school boy with a face that’s hard to ignore.

    Love all the excitement around the world for David Archuleta’s debut in the Mini Series.  5th day Trending worldwide, Phillipines, USA  etc.
    Enjoyed watching it David’s message about Love in the opening act and seeing him at the end.  Story of his character childhood took up middle part .

    Loving all the Bench clothing adds and stories.  Rooting for one of those Billboards here. 

    the Original singer of NanditoAko who David sang with while there tweeted this morning about it trending 23 years after the debut of the song.  Congratulating David and his fans.

    5 days a week for 5 weeks.  ArchuletaPhillipines.com  is providing translation while it is airing.

    today’s episode was easy to follow and some characters spoke in English.

    Ready for more.

    The Queen+Adam Sonisphere rumors are picking up steam again…The festival has announced it is announcing the line-up at 8 pm UK time tonight; Queen has announced it has a big announcement at 8 pm tonight; Adam’s UK PR flack has announced she has a huge announcement at 8 pm tonight; and Fault Mag, which is doing an Adam photo spread next month has announced huge Adam news at 8pm tonight…Coupled with the persistent rumors that Queen (with Adam) are headlining the UK stop, the (possibly fake, possibly real) poster leaks, and Adams own statements that an announcement re Queen appearance could be coming this week, and it looks like it may actually be happening.  Or not, lol.  I guess we will see later this afternoon.

    I’m surprised “evil uncle cook” wasn’t trending along with Nandito Ako. Everyone on my twitter timeline was talking about it. David Cook, I love you for bringing the lulz when you’re not even there. Wish he could have taped a guest appearance before the end of the show — THAT would have been hilarious.

    I couldn’t agree more. It amazes is how genuinely grateful Scotty is each and every time he has an opportunity to sing, whether it’s on the pre-idol stage, on a sold-out tour with a country legend, or with his high school choir. He doesn’t forget his roots, holds uncompromisingly to his values, and does not have a single entitled bone in his body. What a fantastic role model … there are quite a few in the limelight that could learn a thing or two from this remarkable young man.

    I think its better that Scotty doesn’t do a solo so good call on the director (or Scotty, whomever made the decision.)  A choir is about the group and it can make the other kids feel “less than” as if they are there as back up singers.  I am sure their choir has lots of fabulous voices, so let them work together as one.  Or let someone else have a moment in the sun.

    I know its fiction, but if anyone here watches Glee, that’s why Mercedes left the group.  Rachel, Rachel, Rachel.  There are other people that can sing too.

    we don’t know for sure what it is, but since it was filmed by one of Kris’ friends, the consensus seems to be that it will be more along the lines of an extra treat for the fans — like the AWM video was.

    When is that? We know Scotty wants to be part of the baseball season and this will end in may. If Marysville takes place a later date, it might be because Scotty is occupied and has other plans? Maybe they have sceduled some other event or another tour with somebody else, we don´t yet know about? Well, I´optimistic  by nature, but it would not make sense if Brad wouldn´t ask Scotty to continue their tour, because it has been a success so far. There would be no reason to beleive that Brad would not offer Scotty to be part of Marysville, if he could.

    jeffreyd95821: Brad Paisley just announced a tour date in northern California at the Sleep Train Amphitheatre in Marysville. With The Band Perry and……….Eastin Corbin. Not Scotty. This makes me sad. It’s in the summer so Scotty, what could he possibly be doing this summer that would keep him from continuing with the tour?

    My guess is Scotty will graduate to the primary opening slot of another country tour, giving him a 45-50 minute set (maybe even an hourlong set if there’s no secondary opener) instead of the 25 minute set he has now as Brad’s secondary opener.

    When Carrie was starting out, she mixed in about 60 headlining dates with opening dates. Her 1st big tour as an opener was as Kenny Chesney’s secondary opener in summer 2006, then she graduated to primary opener status when she joined Brad in fall 2006. In 2007 she did some headlining dates, fairs, and festivals while working on her sophomore album, then when she toured for her sophomore album she started “co-headlining” with Keith Urban for 28 dates before 100+ dates as a headliner with one opening act (Josh Turner for the winter/spring 2008 leg, Jason Michael Carroll for a short summer 2008 leg, then Little Big Town for the fall/winter 2008 leg).

    I can see Scotty following a similar path as far as touring – he’s started out as a secondary opener but is a little big for that as far as the number of people wanting to see him. So, I think he’ll take a primary opener slot this summer. I wouldn’t be surprised if it were with Carrie since I think a lot of the other big tours are already announced and I thought it was interesting when last month Scotty mentioned that he’d like to tour with King George or Carrie. King George is obviously an idol to him and is on the road now, but I don’t know how much touring he’s planning to do later this year. If he does a bunch of big shows in the summer then I can see Scotty joining him. Scotty mentioning Carrie made me think there’d possibly been talks there.

    OK- so Scotty´s concert is july, 18 and then the jukebox music festival 20/7. 
    To my knowledge there is no official plans until the NC state fare oct. 15. That´s quite some time and there would be no school. That´s why I still believe he (his magement) might have planned something in between july and october ….

  • mchcat

    I hope so – the website Fansofscotty feels there is no new tour for him  his management is very slowly building his summer.  There is a hint of a project not announced yet that he was recording.  He does have some more solo events this summer.  He is in Florida on March 4 , April 12(California) and June 3(VIrgina) but that still leaves a lot of open time.

    Oh, how I loved to read that! ( saw it after I had posted). That´s what I thought when I heard him mention Carrie.  Yeah, he might just be the type to mention it, when actually knowing some deal is going on ..) Whatever, what a thrill this would be!

    Well, scratch my primary opener on a summer country tour expectation for Scotty if he’s still doing at least some dates with Brad. I still think it’s possible he’ll be hopping on board for some spot dates with George Strait if King George should do some shows this summer. And, maybe Scotty will become a primary opener on a fall country tour.

    Thanks crossway and gg77 for the info on the summer Brad tour dates.

    Would it be bad for his career if he only has these few dates with Brad for the summer with some festival dates & basically goes to college with only a few dates in the fall? Basically what I’m wondering is if Scotty not touring with anyone regularly for the rest of this year would hurt his momentum right now if it happens?

    Scotty will be in North Carolina on April 12, 2012 Scotty at the North
    Carolina Azalea Festival (not california).. and on May 20 he’ll be at
    Riverbend Music Center in Cinncinatti, Oh with Brad Paisley and The Band
    Perry.

    Actually, Scotty’s show here is set for 4/13 (Friday).  According to the seating chart, it looks like there are still quite a few open sections.  The show sold out approximately 1000 seats in 24 hours but there were a lot of complaints around here about the ticket prices ($62.50/bleachers, $52.50/balcony).  4000 seats are reserved for the concert.  The rest of the bleachers (the coliseum seats just over 6000) will be blocked off.  I’m still trying to round up someone to go with me.  I paid $45 to see Dave here three years ago.   I paid $35 to see the Beach Boys in ’96.  Boy ticket prices have really gone up since then!  LOL

    with new music playing in the background? lol…at this point, can’t say I’d be surprised :D

    I think he will be touring, its just a matter of whether he will be touring with Brad or not. He will likely tour no matter what-I think its in his best interest. As far as college, he says it will be very part-time, so a few days a week of college hopefully shouldn’t interfere with touring.
