X Factor star Gamu to be kicked out of the country after failing appeal bid to stay

The singer will be told she has to return to her native Zimbabwe as soon as possible… or face being forcibly removed, the Sunday Mirror can reveal. The shock decision from the Home Office comes despite Gamu, 19, and her family ­appearing to receive a ­reprieve in November and being backed by Simon ­Cowell’s lawyers.

Gamu previously told how she would face a “firing squad” if she was sent back to Zimbabwe but Border Agency chiefs have ruled that it is safe for her to return. An ­immigration source said: “Gamu and her ­family will hear shortly that their appeal to stay has failed.

Snubbed Stateside: Cheryl Cole misses out on judging job on U.S. X Factor show

Speculation over whether she will be taking her seat next to Simon Cowell on the judging panel of the U.S. version of the X Factor has been running for weeks.

But Cheryl Cole’s American dream seems to have been dealt a fatal blow as it has emerged she has missed out on the top job, according to reports.

Instead of a judging role it appears she will be offered the role of Simon Cowell’s helper on the American version of the show, a huge blow to her hopes of launching her career stateside.

    Wonder in what capacity Adam means “dropping”? Are they releasing it to radio or something, or just for purchase? And just on AO or Itunes.

    Wonder in what capacity Adam means “dropping”? Are they releasing it to radio or something, or just for purchase? And just on AO or Itunes.

    His choice of words intriqued me too, Studio57. He’s said “Not being sent to radio” before, but maybe it’s so good they’ve changed their mind? There certainly is time for another single before the new one off album #2.

  • mmb

    I have no doubt that adam simply meant available to listen to on YouTube and his website and for purchase at digital outlets. No way is RCA spending radio promo money on a charity single. Can’t wait to hear it though!

  • dcglam

    I’m one who is definitely hoping for radio. *fingers crossed*

    ETA: I’m sure you’re right, mmb.

  • JohnP

    Quoted from the Daily Mail article on Cole’s reported rejection due to her accent.

    And it seems that the singer [Cheryl Cole] was a big hit with Derek’s [Hough] parents and a source from the restaurant told The Sunday Mirror: ‘Derek’s mum and dad looked very taken with Cheryl and his mum spent a fair amount of time locked in conversation with her.’

    Ha! How’s this conversation possible when US Media bosses confidently proclaim that Americans can’t understand her.;)

    US media execs really have a low opinion on US viewers.

    People are laughing that Adam said “nuts” and “drop” in the same tweet :)

    I initially asked Ely when he leaked news of this on twitter whether it would be released to radio-he responded “prayin!” He deleted all those tweets right after that. So it may have been discussed. He and Alisan are awfully excited about its release

  • shwriteme

    Is that not the song Adam is re-releasing for charity? Can’t remember exactly what the charity was for and am too lazy to go back and look it up, but it had something to do with Gay Rights. Maybe that’s what he’s talking about.

    Yes it’s the same song but a remix-people are just wondering where/what format it will be released.

    But, IMO, that’s the beauty of the whole scenario. I don’t think they need to do a big promo, just whaever he already has planned for Aftermath and the new DVD. It’s a charity single, so there’s no pressure for radio play. But why not send it to radio, anyway, and maybe they’ll play it? See what happens?
    shwriteme, it is for The Trevor Project.

    Yeah, based on the deleted tweets I was thinking they may be giving a performance to launch this – maybe on Idol, altho Adam has said he was not going to be on this season – so maybe somewhere else.

  • windmills

    I love that video of Bo up there with the Oak Ridge Boys! It was fun hearing Elvira too. Wish I could’ve heard Bo but it’s still cool to see his rapport with the Oak Ridge Boys.

    To add to the Brad/Carrie collaboration mystery an Atlanta DJ tweeted

    Brad told me Thur the Carrie duet is the reason they have pushed the album release date to late May.Gotta find time to record it

    That’s not in the on air interview Brad did with the station but it’s more or less what Brad told Big D & Bubba in the interview MJ linked. They’re definitely keep the collab under wraps and this is the 3rd or 4th time I’ve heard a reference to the collab being a special “idea” Brad had that he thought was needed to complete his album. I don’t think it’s a regular duet because Brad’s confirmed a bunch of those already including one he did recently with Blake Shelton. I’ll be surprised if it’s Brad’s next single but who knows since nobody seems to have made a lot of headway figuring out just what the collab is.

    I had never really heard Cheryl talk at any length, so I found this interview on youtube:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NVoyEKzHrJ4

    Although I can understand her without a lot of difficulty, I can see why FOX would have concerns about people being able to understand her. Heck, when Susan Boyle was on Oprah, Oprah had problems understanding her and they even subtitled the interview.

    In general, when someone refers to some music “dropping” that refers to when it is released and is available for sale — has nothing to do with radio play.

    That’s sure not what I was expecting. They cover every genre of music. I couldn’t find the ranking list which has Adam on it. If fans can’t talk about Adam, why do they have an Adam forum?

  • dcglam

    Adam has said he was not going to be on this season

    I didn’t realize this was definite since I haven’t heard anything about it. I’m just wondering when and where this came from. I’m usually on top of most things having to do with Adam, but I certainly must have missed the ball on this one. Thanks for any info you may have…….

  • Montavilla

    Re Digital Dream Door:

    I’ve been lurking there for a while, and it’s a great place to read if you are an Adam fan, because these people are fans of music, first and foremost. They hate any whiff of fangirling, but can discuss intelligently the technical aspects of rock singing. It’s very educational. If you do have any technical questions, they are happy to answer them.

    But let me emphasize it again. Do NOT fangirl. Do not post pretty pictures, or videos (unless you have a specific point to make). Do not discuss any singer’s personal charm, or rave about how great they are. I would suggest that you read through the entire Adam thread before you even think about posting there.

    Unfortunately, they moved sometime in the last year. There was an earlier site, with a long thread about miscellaneous rock vocalists that eventually became the Adam thread. It was a great read, because you could see the members gradually going from “meh” to “Hey!”

    They have been working for some time on a list of Adam’s best performances. Two lists, actually. One for studio performances and one for live performances. It’s kind of exciting for them because most of their heroes are either dead or past their prime as singers. Adam is still maturing and a lot of his best performances are yet to come.

    Incidentally, there have been a few posts recently about James Durbin. Nobody seems very impressed with him yet, but there’s some cautious interest.

  • Mel1

    Idols who will likely be on this season: Of course, Lee. Crystal, Casey J., David C., Kris, Danny, Kelly, Fantasia. That’s really a lot. I can’t see Adam on w/o a new single from album #2. The others already have, will have new singles.

  • Montavilla

    If fans can’t talk about Adam, why do they have an Adam forum?

    You can talk about him. Just don’t rave about him. Again, if you read through the thread you’ll understand where they’re coming from.

    Here are the Ranking lists that they have:
    Most Technically Skilled Male Rock Vocalists
    100 Greatest Live Rock Vocalists

  • mmb

    Re: Cheryl I think that whole accent thing is an excuse/ red herring. Fox ( or whoever) simply doesn’t want to hire her. It seems clear they do not simply want to transport the British show to the us. They want a us version with recognizable us celebrities. Especially now that idol has j lo and Tyler. Not a crazy position to take. I’m sure Sony, the network and the producers want to focus more on big ratings and finding and launching a new recording star- not breaking Cheryl in the US market

  • http://legan0.tripod.com mama2dasha

    I have heard him say he didn’t know if he would be on idol this season, but haven’t heard him say anything definite

    Mel-as I said it is hard to find but there are still 2 list that Adam is on

    http://digitaldreamdoor.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=551

    MJ if posting about this DDD blog here is not withing your rules, I am sorry-just wanted to answer a question :)

  • mmb

    Has it been confirmed that Casey, Kris and Danny are all releasing new singles this spring? Or is that wishful thinking? I know Danny and Casey have both said they will be back on idol this season, but I haven’t seen Kris say it. Adam has never said unequivocally that he won’t be on. Just that he didnt think so because he wouldn’t have a single to promote. Of course last year he was sketchy on an idol appearance until he was actually, firmly booked. I do expect to see Kelly c David c fantasia j HUD lee and crystal ( and I guess Danny and Casey since they have said they will be on). Anyone else? Who knows

  • steph6449

    Danny has been in the studio recording. Have not heard if they have chosen the single yet but he is expecting to have one out “soon”.

    In Danny-speak, maybe that means late March, April at this stage. He has plans to go to the Caribbean for a while in March for a family wedding/vacation. Don’t know when that is in March precisely but doubt he will be too active on promo/appearances to support his new music until at least after that.

  • CindyM

    Adam hasn’t said he definitely won’t be on Idol. The only new music he’ll probably have is the new Aftermath, but he also has the DVD coming out. He always seems to hedge unless something has been confirmed or announced. It happened last year with his Idol appearance, tour, etc.

    As far as being on Idol without new music, if Idol/19 want you there, you’re there. Witness both Cook and Archie on last year without new music.

    You’re right. It wasn’t a definite. In the EXTRA interview, the long fan You Tube version, he said, “I don’t think I’ll be on. I won’t have anything to promote.” Idol would be a great place to promote Aftermath if he wants the most exposure and the DVD too. I’ve heard a rumor that he is performing it live, someplace in March, but not where. Could be Leno, Ellen, Idol….

    ETA: Oops, Cindy, we had the same thoughts at the same time.

    I can’t see Adam not being on. They’ll make a reason to have him on! He’s a producer and fan fave. Heck even Constantine is supposedly getting a spot in April.

  • Mel1

    That’s an idol every week. Seems to be a good season to be on, tho.

  • Trina

    Yup just checked, Constantine will be on April 7th per his interview with Ryan. IMO I wouldn’t be shocked to see Kim Caldwell get a spot either. I don’t think Fantasia is a lock. Is she someone who’s on every year regardless?

  • Jewlmc

    The whole “Cheryl’s accent is a big problem” is a load of crap made up by the British Press. For whatever reason, they can’t comprehend that their “Nation’s Sweetheart”(gag) isn’t beloved by all. I think it’s also beyond comprehension for them that Cowell isn’t the Almighty and can’t always get his way. Ergo, “It has to be the accent.”

    Bull. We love accents. The problem is Cheryl simply isn’t special enough to warrant transport across the Atlantic. Sure she’s pretty, but not so “stunning” that a prettier judge can’t be found. Furthermore, a prettier judge who has actual talent( Her “singing” sucks and she benefits from being on the most popular show in the UK.) and/or has relevance in the American Music industry.

    I also hope Simon leaves Dermot O’Copycrest in the UK and finds a U.S. host. Or at least a brit who isn’t obviously working from the “Ryan Seacrest handbook”.

  • Mel1

    Thanks for the the DDD site and info. I’m not going to post there; I just want to lurk. Really interesting lists. Adam has three performances in the top 30, including one of his WLL performances from his tour. He is ranked #2 as a vocalist, which is impressive. Daughtry is also on the list, but way below 100. I’m going to listen to Jackie Wilson, who is #1.

    Actually they are in the process of re-vamping that list, and after much discussion (aka arguing) they recently (Feb 24) put Adam at numero uno and moved Jackie Wilson to the # 2 spot. They just haven’t bothered to update the list on the first page of that forum. I just lurk there from time to time, would never dream of posting. They aren’t much into stans… LOL

    did he said that in an interview? such a bummer

    He was a bit vague, but basically he seems to indicate that he will not be on this season. In this interview with Extra at the Grove at 4:44 when Adam’s asked about performing on Idol this season he says, “I don’t know. I don’t think I’m gonna have any music, so I might not be able to yet. I might have to wait for the next season.”

    http://bit.ly/fkxewa

    In this same interview he talks about the Aftermath remix for charity, so it seems he doesn’t regard it as new music that would rate an appearance on Idol.

    Just want to alert Motown fans to a terrific PBS concert at the White House in honor of Motown’s history. Here’s a taste I found on Youtube — a really rousing Temptations medley with Seal, Jamie Foxx, John Legend and Joe Jonas (who was, to my surprise, pretty good at this style).

  • girlygirl

    not really. it seems like his mgmt is trying to set up a college tour, but so far I’ve only seen 2 dates officially confirmed. If they are going to try and put together a long tour, something needs to happen quick, as you can’t really do a college tour in the summer — would have to be March-May (or wait until the fall).

    I haven’t heard any rumors about him opening for other acts, either. But then again, I don’t really follow Lee — maybe one of his fans can tell us more.

  • Mary102

    Adam has said he was not going to be on this season

    I would take that with a huge grain of salt. He also said very adamently that he wouldn’t be mentoring last year on AI ;-)

    Still, I wouldn’t be surprised either way, if he’s on AI this season or not. The biggest reason for him not to of course would be because he doesn’t really have anything big to promote (e.g. an album)

  • SybilTrelawney

    By this time in 2009, the first leg of David Cook’s college tour was already underway (started in mid-February), and was booked pretty solid through the end of May. Dates at various colleges were added here and there as the tour went on, and then an additional summer leg at fairs and other venues was booked. David played on average 4 gigs a week, sometimes more, during that phase of the tour.

    Based on that, I’d say that Lee’s managers need to get cracking.

    Yeah they need to step up. I wonder what the hold up is. They should be releasing tour plans by now I would think.

    If he doing the college route time is ticking. Spring break is close and most universities are out in early May.

  • Incipit

    I cover the whole gamut, songs from my first record and my upcoming one-current songs, jazz and Broadway.

    Hey, thanks for that story from Edge about Melinda Doolittle! I discovered her from retro-viewing Idol and really, really liked her flexible, expressive voice – the lady had pipes, technique and control, and a very pleasing sound. But when I went to check out the 2009 album, she was not showcased as I was hoping. IDK if it did well commercially – but I decided to wait for the next one. Good to know it’s on the way!

  • Joyed

    Sounds like Lee may be debuting his new single with a live performance on Idol this week. He tweeted:

    Hey! I’m going to be playing the new single Thursday on Idol! looking forward to it. Love you guys :)

    Interesting…:)

    This makes sense to me. I know he’ll sing at the finale like all other winners, and his single and his album could use the exposure of a performance on the show now. Good decision!

    ETA. MJ made a thread for it:)

    Sounds like Lee may be debuting his new single with a live performance on Idol this week.

    Excellent. That’s pretty nicely on schedule to send a single to radio in conjunction with his known tour dates, and with the way the Idol seasons work, it makes total sense to have the most recent winner trying a second single.

  • steph6449

    That is interesting from Lee, when they haven’t made any known preparation seemingly to get a new song out to radio yet.

    I wonder if that is really the best timing for him to take advantage of the AI exposure. Vs. say, around the time of an add date or just after when some stations might be trying out the new song.

    We have no idea what’s going on March 3 for Cook, only that we will get to hear the “extra treat” on TV that day. He never said Idol, we only speculated it. However, if he did record boot song, I didn’t expect him to perform it that day. That performance is not until the last week of the season.

    I am cautiously optimistic about how this collaboration will turn out…

    Excited for new aftermath

  • Indigobunting

    Danny was on TV in Nashville twice yesterday:

    Once with the local Fox for music related (old info on MBD):

    http://www.fox17.com/newsroom/top_stories/videos/wztv_vid_6440.shtml

    Also on the NBC midday show about Sophias Heart:

    http://www.wsmv.com/video/26984960/index.html

    This segment was primarily on Oasis church partnering with Joel Osteen’s church, but I think the pastor let Danny come along to give a brief pitch for Sophias Heart. At any rate, he looked good :)

  • BootStar

    Even if Adam doesn’t have a new single to promote, he could still get invited back. Cook got invited back to sing a Rolling Stones song when he had nothing to promote. Given how much they love Adam, I’d be shocked if he isn’t invited back in some capacity.

    So the Thursday show will include the potential wild card candidates “singing for their lives”? Will that be all of those who didn’t get voted in or just a handful of judges’ choices?

    I don’t know about anybody else, but I’m just happy next week will include a Tuesday night with American Idol on my telly. I hate that they switched the nights this season!

    The Season 10 idols singing for wildcard are going to sing circles around Lee on Thursday. Poor guy lol.

    It will be as embarrassing as when Kellie Pickler came on top 8 results night season 8, and everyone, including Scott Macintyre, could sing 5 octaves above her. How SHE got to number 7 spot is more mind numbing than Tim Urban reaching to the finals.

  • JazzRocks

    I don’t think TPTB at 19 would be foolish enough to not have Adam perform. That would be WIN/WIN – for him and for Idol.

  • steph6449

    I also think Adam will be on sometime this season, one way or another.

    Has Kelly come back to perform on AI much? I don’t remember seeing her on the more recent seasons, didn’t follow the show before that.

    Kelly performed My Life Would Suck Without You at the Top 12/13 Results show in S8 the week (day?) her album dropped. It was awesome (IMO).

    New theory is that Adam is at the airport from the pic he tweeted. Although who knows LOL.

  • girlygirl

    the little you can see through the window in that photo Adam tweeted doesn’t look like an airport to me. The food is Baja Fresh — there are several Baja Fresh restaurants in L.A.

  • jlurksacto

    Those Adam tweeters are pretty good. Baja Fresh is located in terminal 7 at LAX…home of United Airlines

  • Brook52

    Can’t wait to hear Lee on Thursday. Going to see him in Fairfield, CT on March 23rd at Sacred Heart University.

  • tigervixxxen

    Awesome Brook52, will you give us a recap? :)

    I don’t see it as that strange how the tour is unfolding for Lee. The same booking middleman (main stage productions) who worked on David Cook’s tour advertised Lee for Mar-May and Davids was originally Feb-Apr of course before the never-ending dates were released. Also a few early dates have trickled in just like it was on David’s case. Why is it assumed they are not currently working on bookings? Lee said they are working on routing. The first date we know about is March 23rd, so obviously the tour will be announced and start by then.

    gangreen: Do you know how many people will be chosen to sing for wildcards? And you’re sure they will sing again instead of the judges just selecting them based on prior performances?

    Aw, Matt and Danny usually manage to get together when Matt is in Nashville.

    It’s too bad they are both so busy, they’d probably see each other even more frequently.

    Central Arkansas just experienced a 4.7 earthquake. But according to this, it was a “Kralequake” — luckily sounds like everybody’s ok (well, everybody from Ark on my twitter feed anyway)

    Ratna12—couldn’t agree with you more!

    So Kris and Cale are “rockin” because they’re performing together this week in DC? That’s what I thought of when I looked at that pic. I gotta get my computer fixed so I can hear them in any videos that surface (right now I have no sound). I miss hearing those two!

    Ooh, pretty eyes! Hee. Otherwise? Kinda the most boring pap pictures ever, LOL. He’s just like us! He goes through airport security with a backpack and boarding pass in his mouth! Hah. I do that do. But yeah, CindyM’s right, those seem to be outgoing pictures from LAX, on the way to Austin. But we know he’s back cuz he was apparently at an Oscar viewing party with Ben Moody (from Twitter).
