Milford frosh hopes to make ‘Idol’ history – “It’s truly insane, being an arm’s reach from what could happen,” said Franckewitz by phone Friday from Los Angeles, where he’s rehearsing for his live TV performance on Tuesday. “Getting this far is surreal.” Franckewitz – who met the minimum age by only 13 days – would be the youngest finalist ever, said Fox publicist Alexandra Gillespie. Last year, runner-up Lauren Alaina auditioned at 15, but celebrated a birthday before the “Idol” season premiered, she said. – Read more at Cincinnati.com

Kelly Clarkson sings with Jason Aldean in Nashville – Kelly Clarkson sang Don’t You Wanna Stay with country singer Jason Aldean Thursday night in Nashville, in the same venue where the two singers debuted the song in November 2010. The moment came during Aldean’s concert at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. Usually, Lauren Alaina, who opens the shows on Aldean’s tour, returns to the stage to perform the song with him. But Clarkson, a Nashville resident, let Aldean know a few days before that she’d be in town and would join him. – Read more at USA Today

    According to the Cincinnati article, Eben has family roots in country music and Archie is an inspiration for him.  Awww.

    Although judge Jennifer Lopez has compared his look to pop star Justin Bieber, Franckewitz said he draws inspiration from 2008 “Idol” contestant David Archuleta. He was 17 when he finished second to David Cook.

    “I thought David Archuleta would win. Seeing him go so far in the competition gives me some hope,” he said.  A professional singing career, he said, “it’s truly what I want to do the rest of my life.’’

  • Tess

    Wouldn’t it be better to be an original than a “knock off” of Adele.  I don’t think people thought Adele was another “somebody” when she got started….I thought that her path to success was because she was different from what was going down at the time.

  • GS61

    She needs to learn a thing or two first from Carrie Underwood about releasing dynamic singles before she wastes a golden opportunity.
    That song of hers is a snooze fest.
    She corrects this, and maybe she’ll hit it big.
    I hope all the AI10 kids do well. I pretty much liked them all.

  • Anonymous

    I think the song might be OK but Haley’s performance was so subdued.  Maybe she was overexcited and trying to keep herself in check. Hopefully she will open up a little more with future performances she has an interesting voice with the right material could have a nice career for herself but its all a crap shoot as we know.

  • Anonymous

    Could we wait until Haley actually has music out before comparing her to someone who is about to sell 10 million copies of her album?

  • http://twitter.com/HaleysShindig HaleysShindig

    That song of hers is amazing and she focused the performance of it to what was provided, a sole keyboard and small club environment, unlike Carrie’s, which was accompanied by a full band.

     One thing I’ve learned about Haley is she never sings a song the same way twice, and adapts her performances to where she is performing. (See HOTRS on Regis, vs Tour, vs AI, vs HRC, or her many renditions of both HOTRS and BATJ on Tour) According to her Dad, the actual single is WAY different than what we heard, which was the song stripped down to its bare core. Same could be said from the many different ways she has performed “Oh Darling” or “God Bless The Child”. Hard to judge Haley, almost impossible in fact, from one performance.

    Also, I think of Haley more as just Haley with strong influences and similarities to Janelle Monae, Corrine Bailey Rae and Amy Winehouse, more than Adele. So I disagree with the meme that she is the next Adele, her voice has more things going on with it.

  • OffLeash

    True. And I bet labels are grooming several Adele 2.0 as we speak, not really understanding that what made Adele Adele was her uniqueness.

    Heejun’s great, and I think he should have done it, everyone knows Colton’s power comes from his hair, ELIMINATE THE COMPETITION HEEJUN!

    The performance was done acoustically…What do people expect when she’s just singing alongside a keyboard? I’m sure the studio version will be livelier, and even if it’s not the song is still lovely.

    It’s certainly not the funeral march that some are making it out to be…

    Haley’s style may be similar to Adele, but calling her the next Adele is
    way premature. She definitely has the potential to go far though. The music world could use a unique voice like hers. Which is IMO tailor made for radio.

    Also, I think of Haley more as just Haley with strong influences from

    who before RITD, she says she never listened to. So I disagree with the
    meme that she is the next Adele, her voice has more things going on with
    it. 

    Agreed. I never got the Adele comparison either. Haley is way more Corrine Bailey Rae-ish (or maybe Duffy & Amy Winehouse) than Adele IMO.

  • Anonymous

    Well i really love Adele, her lyrics are amazing, the DVD concert at the Royal Albert Hall is GREAT! , but i think too Haley has so much texture and versatility on her voice and style …. i showed the single to other people, not exactly AI fans  , in fact they don’t know she came from that TV reality show and people love the ”voices” coming from her mouth ….. the high notes , the melancholic , the falsetto, the runs well placed in the song, the intensity ….. actually remind me more Amy W, ( http://youtu.be/TJAfLE39ZZ8 ) ”Back to Black”  than Adele ;) … oh!! ‘ most of them we impressed that she was just accompanied by a piano so :).
    In any case, one voice is the evolution of the same style with some doses of originality ( Amy > Duffy > Adele > Haley = New Soul) … Haley has the voice, style and the originality and uniqueness to become a well respected  Star …. hopefully the support will be there for her . …. I mentioned that i love FREE? :)

    Heejun is hilarious!

    And, Kellie is too. I hope her cohosting of the Sony boat show will help

    market country radio stations.

    I know MJ doesn’t post reviews in Headlines
    but here’s a review roundup for Carrie’s Good Girl. I’m just focusing
    on major sites in country music and the mainstream.

    These country blogs are oriented towards critical reviews (as opposed to descriptive ones):

    Country
    Universe (gives GG an A)
    (this is the country blog probably
    most well known for thoughtful and well written reviews – I don’t always
    agree with them but they’ve got talented, straight shooting writers)

    1
    to 10 Country Music Reviews
    (rates GG an 8 out of 10)

    Here are reviews from some country news/promo blogs

    Taste Of Country (4.5 out of 5 stars)

    Keepin
    It Country
    (4.5 out of 5 stars)

    Roughstock (4 out of 5 stars)

    The country blogs are applauding Carrie’s adventurousness (despite GG being her least country single) and also
    focusing on her vocal performance. I think it’s really helping that this
    is the rawest and most immediate vocal performance Carrie’s had on a
    single. Though it’s in a similar boy bashing lane as some of her other
    singles, GG’s also getting credit for being her best written uptempo since
    BHC.

    Here are some reviews from mainstream sites that are more descriptive than attempting to be critical:

    Entertainment Weekly

    Idolator

    Billboard
    (not its official review)

    When I heard “Free” at the Hard Rock, I thought it sounded far more Amy Winehouse-ish than Adele-ish.

    This is who Haley has always reminded me of.  I think she would kill on some of Amy Winehouse’s songs.

    Yup. Haley fits in with the whole soul revival thing mostly based out of England 

    I agree with this too, which is why, even though Amy Winehouse, Duffy, etc. saw some success in the US, I don’t know if mainstream stations are embracing that sound.  I’m looking forward to seeing how Jimmy Iovine markets her, and if he’s willing to deal with the possibility that it will take a long time before her audience finds her music.  I’m using the word find, because I think that Jimmy is going to have a hard time getting her airplay in the US.

  • randomjoe

    Corinne is definitely a direct influence on Haley.   But for the others, I’m not so sure.

    I’d make the case instead that they share common influences such as Dusty Springfield and the 60s Brit soul wave and in some cases jazz roots, etc.   Not surprisingly they share elements of the same sound.

    I think you need to see videos of Lauren on tour singing her own songs to judge normal audience reactions for her. U2 is a rock band so obviously there are country fans that do not like that style of music. There’s obvioulsy going to be less of a reaction since it’s not a country song. The Band Perry sings “Freefallin” by Tom Petty on their current tour & there is less audience reaction on that song since it’s not country.

    Oh, Heejun Han, I like you a lot, but please don’t over twitter, keep it funy, interesting and us waiting for more, don’t exhaust the excitement from the beginning because you have felt people like you.

    “Wouldn’t it be better to be an original than a “knock off” of Adele.  I
    don’t think people thought Adele was another “somebody” when she got
    started.

    I  think squirrellygirl  has said that Haley reminds her of Adele, not be like Adele, having good voice, tone and controlled breath(and voice) doesn’t make you immediately the imitator of other singers; I think too Haley is a good singer and in her own merit. She didn’t even sing an Adele as a hint your mind should go there and associate with. She seems a classy, smooth girl and there might be the association with Adele, not really the next door girl singing with a powerful voice, she’s more like feel it(the voice) softly not be struck by it, I like “not in my face” singers that so many times have left me “dry” pretty soon. I think also that Hallie Day is pretty underrated, maybe because of her troubled past, but she seems so “on” to compete, confident but not on the verge of “must win” the show, so far I haven’t gotten a bad vibe from her to turn me off; same I felt from David Cook. Hallie reminds me of Kim Wilde, lol, not be KW http://goo.gl/wNM9D.
    Good girl-voices this year and maybe pretty hard to choose from, only their personalities might do the ranking.

    I agree with all of that. I’m not a huge country music fan by any means, but I listened to the song this morning and I love it. The vocal is gorgeous and the song has some terrific dynamics, which Carrie delivers beautifully. (Don’t hurt me, but sometimes I find her full-throated attack somewhat exhausting, so I love that there are parts in this one where the instrumental drops to a minimum and the vocal is modulated too.) 

    I’m not a bit surprised it’s looking like it will have broad appeal.

    I  think she got a nice reaction then left the stage and her band was still playing most likely got a little more then when they were done.  But lets face it people are there to see Luke and Jason.  My sense from watching a lot of her performances is that she works hard to get the crowd into it and does her job as a warm up act to get the crowd ready for the stars.  In an interview recently she said she watches the crowd during Luke and Jason’s sets and everyone is singing along and that’s what she wants one day. Hopefully once people start to know her songs that will happen for her.

    I ‘m sure in Lauren’s own element she gets all the accolades deserving of her performance. My comment was strictly an observation of the video posted of her Nashville show. It was in no way a criticism of Lauren but that of the audience. She deserved a more enthusiastic response IMO.

  • Chris

    I saw hands up waving in front of the camera, so she had some folks involved.  I agree that the piece that’s missing is many of the audience members probably don’t know her songs so they are just “jamming” with the beat.  Jason also said in an interview the Nashville crowd can be filled with industry people so they tend to “sit there.”

    http://blogs.tennessean.com/tunein/2012/02/24/jason-aldean-brings-genre-melding-record-busting-tour-to-nashville/ 

    Lauren didn’t have U2 in her set before the My Kinda Party tour, so I am tempted to believe his production may have even suggested it so her set had a similar element.  He and Luke tend to blur the lines a bit with country, rock, rap, etc…

    See, this is the thing about Kellie. She’s got this amazing talent to be truly funny and entertaining. While she is an adequate singer and I do like several of her tunes on this current CD, I honestly think her strength as a performer is as a wit. I wish she’d have a TV show ala Tina Fey or become a country Ellen with her own talk show. This is where I think she really belongs rather than trying to claw her way up the charts amongst the Carries, Rebas and endless male versions of “I like my dog” and “Shake your booty”.

     Looks like this will be the season of the pranks.  I’d probably be afraid to sleep.

    Scotty Paisley trended worldwide last night:))  Somehow, I’m betting the picture of Scotty and Brad together appears on some country blogs:)

    Haley has a good voice, but just the voice is never enough unless one goes Susan Boyle route and record the covers of classic songs.  Haley needs good material and I am not sure that songs that she has premiered are it.  Hope that she will get better material.  

    Pia has a great voice and is better looking than Haley (in my opinion), but she was not able to deliver with her first single.  Even Jimmy Iovine’s support didn’t help her.  Good songs are hard to come by for new artists, unless they also can write.
