‘American Idol’: Alleged rivals Colton Dixon and Phillip Phillips weigh in on their so-called feud – Both guys tell Zap2it backstage after their performances that there’s no rivalry there, and Iovine was simply stirring up drama for drama’s sake. “I think that ‘American Idol’ is a TV show, and I think that Jimmy was trying to start something,” Dixon explains. “I hope that he didn’t. I hope that America sees past what Jimmy was trying to do.” But Dixon thinks its unfair to point out that the ladies love him. “Honestly, that really put me off. It really did. It got me wound up, and I’m sure I could go at it right now, but I had to bite my tongue in the studio and I think Phillip had to do the same thing. I even think Phillip handled it a little better than I did,” – Read more at Zap2it

American Idol Backstage Scoop: Contestants Dish on Jennifer Lopez’s Divorce and Boy-Toy Casper Smart – After last week’s sneak peek of Jennifer’s new video for “Dance Again,” Elise Testone revealed it made her feel like she got a little too close to Jen and Casper’s relationship, but admits anyone as hot as Jennifer has every right to flaunt it! “I felt a little like I was invading their personal space,” she told us. “But she’s so beautiful, and I really do look up to her.

During Tuesday’s “Big Brother” episode, it was revealed that the Yale-bound Quinn returned to McKinley with a positive attitude despite her prognosis, telling her fellow New Directions members that she’ll be on her feet again by Nationals. “She’s convinced that she’ll be fine,” she says. “She’s in the mindset that absolutely nothing will change: That she’s going to still going to be fine at prom or graduation.” – Read more at the Hollywood Reporter

    I haven’t seen the whole thing as it aired, but there are a bunch of clips of DeAndre’s interview with Anderson Cooper on the show’s YouTube channel.  Looked to be pretty funny, but I like Anderson.  Dre too.  Anderson gave him the first official show scrunchie.

    A Carrie fan “detective” @typo21 found the personal FB of a guy who art directed Carrie’s next video. Back in January Carrie’d blogged that they would shoot the video for the 2nd single shortly after they shot the video for the 1st one because she doesn’t like when videos come out after the single’s already shot up the charts. According to his posts, the video is for Blown Away (the title track of the album). Here’s the photo he posted from the shoot. According to a Pulse poster who’s heard the demo for the song, that picture matches the lyric “dry lightning cracks across the sky”.

    Based on the art director’s FB posts, the shoot was from March 16-21. 5 day shoot! And, that means this picture Carrie tweeted was from the set of the video. I kind of thought it was based on what she was wearing but wasn’t sure until all this stuff was found. 

    Too, it appears Blown Away the album is getting its own UK release. As mentioned in the Monday morning Mediabase thread, Good Girl has been A listed at BBC Radio 2, and both HMV and Amazon UK are listing a 6/18 release date for a deluxe version of the album (all 14 Blown Away tracks plus Before He Cheats, Cowboy Casanova, Last Name, and Jesus Take The Wheel). I’m beginning to think Carrie may make a promo trip over to the UK in June.

    So funny…Colton got offended that Jimmy made it sound like he’s only in the competition because of the girl vote because he thinks of himself as a true artist?  Oh Colton…if you make it to the end of this competition, it WILL be only because of the girl vote, and everyone knows it. And no Colton…not all Idol voters are little girls.

    James and his wife Heidi on the black carpet at the Revolver Magazine Golden Gods Awards last night:

    http://jamesdurbininfo.wordpress.com/ 

    James was nominated for best vocalist, the award was won by Amy Lee of Evanescence. James (together with label mate Seether) also presented the “most dedicated fans award” to Avenged Sevenfold. Recap by Hugh29:

    Watching the Golden God Awards was for me seeing James taking his baby steps in a pretty tight, hardcore, and surprisingly vibrant world of metal music.  Firstly, had he won the best vocalist award it would have been totally inappropriate and probably would have garnered a lasting hate that would have spelled doom for his career in that genre.  This was something he hasn’t earned. The nomination was a perfect introduction (and he only got a light response to his name being called).  When he was called to present an award (with labelmates Seether) he surprisingly did not get booed off the stage, but didn’t get a rousing cheer either.  He made a nice joke about getting further on Idol than Chris Jericho (the host) made it on Dancing With The Stars.  The crowd didn’t hate that either.  He made his first connection with the crowd when he announced the winner of what he was presenting, “Avenged *expletive* Sevenfold!”.  At that point it seemed as if he was with his people.  Now he just has to go on tour and kick some ass!    

    BTW, whatever people think about the metal crowd, they put on a great award show.  It was pretty raw, a lot of swearing, but the awards were hardly the focus, it was all about the music.  The acceptance speeches were for the most part funny and none were longer than a couple of minutes.

    Why is Puppet Master Nigel claiming ignorance on the judges’ comments? “Interesting voting tonight!!”, he muses. Maybe it wouldn’t be so “interesting” if the panel gave honest and balanced critiques.

    No thank you to Colton pigeonholing the majority of the voting bloc as “little girls”. As much as I disliked Jimmy’s antics, I agree with P2 that it’s for show. I don’t fully understand Colton’s righteous indignation over it. Quite a defensive chap, isn’t he? Getting all riled up over basically nothing.

    Pity that a season so filled with talented singers is being muddled by these lame shenanigans.

    Sue, where did you copy that paragraph from about James?  Is there a write up someplace?

    I thought the same thing about the award – as much as I know some of his fans wanted him to win that, I really think there may have been a backlash if he had because I don’t think he has paid his dues in the rock world yet.  That was a rough crowd there last night.  Wow.  What was up with the Black Veil Brides getting booed like that?  And the crowd even seemed to be really turning against Chris Jericho toward the end too and he was just trying to be funny.  The crowd reactions to things surprised me and they looked so unhappy, unless that’s just how the metal rock crowds are.  I was actually nervous that they might be rude to James when he came out to present or when they read his name as a nominee, but they weren’t at all.  He got applause – not quite as much as some others but he still got applause and no rude response at all.

    Adam sounds great on NCOE. It definitely has more potential for CHR play than BTIKM. It also sounds as if they are targeting the dance/club market with that arrangement.

  • Anonymous

    thirdtime, you basically had the same reaction I did about the crowd’s response to James.  It was almost like, “Ok kid, we’re going to overlook the American Idol stuff, now let’s see what you got.”  It’s as if metal is going to give James a chance, because it is really the fans that he has to win over, we know he’s got the inside track otherwise.  Honestly, I didn’t expect this, he still has his tour and all that, but I didn’t think the metal crowd would ever allow him to ever get off the ground and that he would end up going the Daughtry route.  To me this signals a breakaway and I have a feeling his next album will be pure metal.  You heard the vocalists last night too, James can sing circles around them, pitch and melody are not required.  I also understand the WWE connection now.  I’m proud of him, I think he has a shot of living his dream.

    Adam’s Trespassing releases around the world the same day, on May 15, well in that general week anyway. It only releases in July for the UK.

    I think it has something to do with some promo that they have lined up for them in there, possibly for the two Queen shows that happens to also be in July. But who knows..

  • Anonymous

    I’m thinking they chose a July UK release to take advantage of the buzz Adam will get from the Queen concerts.
    NCOE sounds like a CHR hit to me-it has a great melody and is catchy as hell. Adam sounds fantastic. This is the first time in a long time that I’m not questioning the label’s judgment in their choice of a single for one of my Idol favorites.
    I woke up this morning with NCOE running through my mind-and that was from a song snippet.

  • Anonymous

    BTIKM was never released in the UK. Shoshana, Adam’s UK publicist, referred to it as a “buzz single” from day one. Wise move.

    The full NCOE is seriously amazing. This is the most optimistic I have ever been for Adam to really break-through on CHR.

     This! I just listened to it (again) with my good earbuds and gotta say Adam’s vocals are not only up front they are in your face! A driving dance beat and this voice. Totally CHR friendly but also unique with those drawn out phrases and that bridge! Was not too sure about the wordless bridge but with Adam’s riffs it really works. This is Adam’s best shot for sure, they out did themselves with this production. Good Lord I love it!

    I apologize in advance if you meant nothing by it, but I have a problem with the phrase “Kris needs to get busy,” which to me implies something, imho. Like, he’s being lazy. He’s been as busy anyone can be. I’m sure his radio promo will line up fine when it’s appropriate.

    What great news, I hope it climbs up more after tonight… and what’s the best with the GG-awards and his Idol performace it will be fans of outside and inside the bubble who became aware (again) of him.

    The lyrics-video is so much fun to watch. O/ Thanks for posting the link, Sue.

    And of course, it is set in a plane, James is “using” the oxygene mask as a microphone in the verses. ;) (but don’t worry, I only noticed after the 2nd/3rd time watching, too. ROTFL)

    But I know where the van idea comes from which was my also my first notion, because I could actually see this scenario happening in a tour bus, that they suddenly just start belting out and headbanging. :D
    It reminded me at a scene from “Almost Famous” (highly recommend movie anyone who likes the seventies and music), where suddenly everybody sings along to Elton John’s “Tiny Dancer” (of course not the song genre/style, but the spirit of the scene, that something like it just could spontaneously happen).

    I am looking forward to James on Idol.  Haley and he were my favorites last year.  He is capable of being a real dynamo on stage and is very different from the usual Idol alum.  Powerful voice for sure.  I would not be at all surprised if he gets a really good bump.

    This is great! And Haley too, I like her a lot!

     Don’t Kris and Haley also have Pet-a-palooza at Vegas April 21 as well?

    A cover is a long shot but a feature works for me. RS pretty much ignored Adam for a while but they have been covering him regularly for several months now. It could even be a cover or feature with Queen which would be great too.

    This pic of Carrie’s shoot is very dark, isn’t it? Her cover art too was kind of  dark, i thought, spooky even. Hm.

    Don’t Haley and Kris have the same management and even the same assistant? They’re doing the smart thing in this situation, I think, maximizing the use of resources and the Idol-friendly fanbase.

    ETA: it was supposed to be the reply to tripp_ncwy, I fail at technology.

    Am I the only one who don’t understand these pet-a-palooza concerts. Why would someone want to bring a pet to a music concert. Concerts are crowded enough with human fans, but to throw in animals also, doesn’t sound like a fun time.

    I didn’t even think about a cover or feature with Queen, that would be great.

    This is not fair.  Last time around, the extra-song turned out to be one of my favorites… I still play CLYG at least once a week.  DAMNNNN!!!

    Kimmel was one of the ABC shows who banned Adam after the AMA.  Maybe he needs ratings, Adam is ready to deliver.

    Um. Okay. This is great. Color me entirely surprised. My take on Durbin was he was a poser. 

    Not a HUGE hard rock/metal fan, but I can dabble when the singer can actually sing and the lyrics don’t turn offensive. Durbin is at his best with this one. Hope it does well for him.

    Kimmel is doing great with his show. He doesn’t need Adam for ratings lol. Kimmel went on record as being really pissed when ABC forced him to cancel Adams appearance back in late 2009. Obviously ABC is over its issues with him ( as well they should be…..). I’m not surprised Adam is, finally, doing a Kimmel appearance. Happy to see it. Love Kimmel’s show

    I loved that one too, I wish he would have performed that one live while on tour.

    I am glad Casey will be at the Riverfront stage this time. His manager has also said that he is working on something else for the CMA Fest as well.

    Me too. And I really like the fact that in the list of “stars” he is no longer at the bottom, but now mid-pack. Different from last year.

    Colton might, actually, if they’re indeed going for a girl winner. On the other hand, I don’t think he’s in danger of being eliminated, he’s gonna stay at least until top 3.

    Not being a country fan except for Casey, I have no idea who Alan Jackson is.

    Jackson has had 31 #1 hits. He’s a legend in country music. 20 years ago, he was the tall, blond god of country music. Hm.

    Someone in some thread said that what

    CaseyJ needs to do is do a ton of radio “small  shows” along with some opening acts that expose him to new fans. I would say this is one of those. As well as his opening gigs for Rodney Atkins.

    CJ is smart. And I’d say I’m totally impressed with his management team.

    Kris needs to get busy doing radio promo visits first. I don’t know exactly how those come about but really that is what needs to be happening now so he can get invited to do the concerts IMO.  

    The radio concerts come about because of the label, and Kris is doing a big one tomorrow that is being sponsored by dozens of radio stations.  Some of these stations have already started to play Kris’ single.  I’m sure that other radio stops will be coming up.  

    Right now, it’s up to 19 and RCA to get Kris promotional opportunities.  Kris’ job is to take advantage of those opportunities when they happen, whether that means giving great interviews, good studio performances, or whatever.

     Glad to see they’re on it!

     It’s kind of full circle isn’t it? It started with ABC letting him present at the AMAs last year. I will not be surprised if Adam shows up on GMA eventually, lol. Damn, it seems like Adam’s sentence was longer than Chris Brown’s for beating up Rhianna.

    Kris is also going to be doing a concert for a radio station in Fort Myers, FL.
    I think it is April 19.  They event is happening over a whole weekend and there be other performers there.  I think Krinja’s need  to let Rolling Stone know that we would like a nice indepth interview with Kris too.

  • justmefornow

    You’re right. I just watched it again. It’s a plane. The way they are pretend fighting at the end makes me think of when my kids were younger-
    “Don’t make me come back there, I’ll turn this plane right around!” lol.

    Did Kris get the indepth interview in RS when he won Idol?

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/6BDCFZ26QLJA3QPLBJC535N7BQ Gerarda DeSanto

    Kris has never had an interview with Rolling Stone.  Adam got the cover and the interview when Kris won.

    Petapalooza isn’t a concert, per se. It is a family and pet friendly event sponsored by Mix 94.1 that benefits animal rescue organizations. They have silly pet contests, animal adoption services and food booths. It is inexpensive and a lot of fun.

    Jimmy was mad at ABC for canceling Adam, he wanted him on.  Glad to see he’s booked again.
