American Idol: 15 Best 80s songs: Entertainment Weekly

Heejun to Sing at New York Mets Opening Game! – It’s an exciting week for Top 9 contestant Heejun Han as the New York Mets announced today that he will sing God Bless America tomorrow during Opening Day at Citi Field. The 22-year-old from Flushing finished in the Top 9 in the 11th season of American Idol, and clearly hasn’t wasted any time since his elimination. It’s exciting to see what the future might hold for Heejun! – Read more at American Idol

RANDY JACKSON: ‘AMERICAN IDOL’ IS THE REAL THING – During its eleven seasons, American Idol has discovered such stars as Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Chris Daughtry, and Jennifer Hudson. It’s hard to find any other talent show that has turned out as many successful contestants. We spoke to Idol judge Randy Jackson who has been with the show since its inception and asked him how American Idol has managed to nurture such great talent.

For ‘Dancing’ contestant Gavin DeGraw, life is ‘Sweeter’ off the dance floor – BURBANK, Calif. — The voters showed they weren’t quite over pop star Gavin DeGraw and pro partner Karina Smirnoff on Tuesday night’s “Dancing With the Stars” elimination round. Soap star Jack Wagner and his partner were eliminated instead. But even though DeGraw doesn’t admit it, getting booted from “Dancing” probably wouldn’t be a total heartbreaker for the singer-songwriter, whose current album, “Sweeter,” has produced a platinum single, “Not Over You.” What’s more, the title track just dropped as the album’s third single. – Read more at Washington Post

Dancing With the Stars Scoop: Jack Wagner “Shocked” and Sherri Shepherd Getting…Naked? – “We were doing the best we can!” Jack Wagner tells us after getting the ol’ heave-ho off the ballroom floor last night. “We’re disappointed. It’s shocking! I think anybody who would have gotten eliminated tonight would have been pretty shocked because all of the scores were so good. So it’s us and we move on, life’s not going to end, hopefully. We just take some great memories.” Wagner says this turn of events won’t keep him from dancing, thankyouverymuch.”I’m not letting go of this outfit. I’m dancing in my car in a minute!… I thought Id be rehearsing tomorrow with this wonderful woman, so maybe I’ll take a day off.” – Read more at EOnline

The Voice Judges Battle Over the Show’s Breakout Star! Plus, Who Is Blaming Song Choice? – Reggae darling and street performer, Naia Kete, might have dazzled the judges in the blind auditions and battle rounds but her straightforward take on Adele’s “Turning Tables” may have been her downfall. Should she have stuck to her reggae roots? She might not have had a choice! Kete explains: “There are things that need to be cleared, songs that the band needs to learn and that kind of thing. Most of the time you only get a certain amount of songs to pick from.” But that doesn’t explain why Kete didn’t put her signature sound on it: “For this song in particular it was a new thing and we only had enough time to rehearse it once. So it had to be a song that the band already knew and I couldn’t do much to it. I brought what I could in the 15 minutes that I was given in rehearsal.” – Read more at EOnline

    I would guess Jennifer Hudson might be mentoring them one week, that would be a treat for all.

  • Valentin432

    The Jhud thing could be her performing or maybee Joshua has learned that he will get to duet with her at the finale.
    I think the decisions about the finale must be taken pretty early during the live shows and the producers must have a good idea who are the 5 or 6 contestants who will get to have their own duet.

    Except I feel like Joshua would get it trouble for being the one to break an upcoming mentor.  That’s a Nigel thing to do. 

  • Valentin432

    I don’t know about mentoring, Jimmy is the one making those decisions and he seems to prefer interscope/UMG artists (I think all but Stevie Nicks are with UMG and we know that Stevie and Jimmy are old friends).

    Why Joshua’s main photo on twitter is with P2? WTF?

    Naia could take her guitar and played a song…that’s not a good excuse.

    VH1 wants to do a Pop Up Video for Kris Allen’s Live Like We’re Dying.

    I didn’t realize VH1 had started pop-up videos again.  Well, I’m assuming they stopped altogether at some point.  Either way, I always liked them, learned some cool tidbits that way.

    Joshua better hope he is still on the show by then, Whatever the JHud thing is

    Hopefully Kris’ management will get him to do this, because it would be so cool. I think Pop Up Video recently did a WWFM video with Adam, didn’t they?

    #ThankYouCamellia justt trended #1 worldwide and in the U.S. during the 20 Questions twitter session Kris did with his fans (in which he told us (perhaps unwisely?) what the album title means.

    Joshua wouldn’t know if he’s even going to get to perform at the finale yet, would he? I’m trying to remember how many of the S10 finalists had solo/duet spots on the finale. I think Scotty, Lauren, Haley & James? Anyone else have a finale performance that wasn’t a group number? I forget

    Another radio station concert has been booked for Adam in May.

    I think this makes 4 he is doing that month. I guess I will have to wait for second single promo to see him in Florida? I was very surprised he didn’t come here first round since his concerts did very well here but maybe Florida is for the second round? Adam is going to have a very busy schedule for a long while.

    Okay guess I’m a tiny bit disappointed the cat is out of the bag….but it’s STILL a great album title, actually even a bit cooler & meaningful. Kris is so great to pay tribute this way!      :)

    Kris just tweeted that he will have a duet on his album!

    #Got a little treat for you guys on this record. My new friend@meikomusic and I are doing a duet on the record.

    #Sorry @meiko is her name

    I wonder if it will be on one of the songs we know already? Or a different one.

    Excited to hear Kris duet. OMG. Yes, I’m wondering too if it is new song or not. I think it will be a new song. I can’t wait.

    #ThankYouCamellia justt trended #1 worldwide and in the U.S. during the 20 Questions twitter session Kris did with his fans (in which he told us (perhaps unwisely?) what the album title means.

    He also answered the questions too fast, so if the idea was to promote the album title over twitter during the east coast broadcast of American Idol, that only lasted for a few minutes.I’m happy for a duet, but I wish it was with a well known artist, who can get some airplay.

    Meiko has a very pretty voice – looking forward to her duet with Kris.  Wonder if they’ll duet with the guitars as well.

    Mateja here. My computer is still not fixed. Actually, I still have it at home. We called the servis company on Monday and found out the guy that usually picks up my computer is sick and not working. He was suppossed to return to work in a couple of days, so we waited. It’s Thurss

    elliegrll, I really don’t think Kris’ intent was anything more than a fun way to answer his main fans #1 burning question of ‘who/what is Camellia’.

     The time was convenient to him and Lane and it is VERY doubtful they even thought about American Idol or that it was being broadcast on the East coast during that time. THey are on the West coast.

    Using the hashtag was how they could easily see the questions in order to answer. It is certainly how I kept track of them in a separate twitter window.

    I’m stoked about the duet on the album. I hope it is ‘Teach Me How Love Goes’. That song begs to be a duet. I went and listened to Meiko’s music and I like it a lot. I downloaded her free song. She has a new album coming out on May 15th.
