Saturday’s Bowersox concert to raise money for TSA

Toledo, OH (WTVG) — This Saturday night Crystal Bowersox returns to Toledo for two special performances. But they’re not just any concerts; they’re fundraisers for the Toledo School for the Arts where she really began cultivating her signature style. There’s also a twist to these shows that have current TSA students smiling ear to ear.

Guitar instructor Randy Sobel still remembers the first time a girl named Crystal Bowersox walked into his class at the Toledo School for the Arts.

Crystal Bowersox serves, performs at St. Paul’s Community Center

After stopping off at the Toledo School for the Arts for about two hours Friday morning and then catching her breath at a near-downtown Greek restaurant, singer-songwriter Crystal Bowersox poured her heart out to 125 people at St. Paul’s Community Center on 13th Street with a mini concert that lasted more than an hour.

What was originally planned as a quick, four-song performance for people served by a center where she once got lunch herself turned into an emotional 10-song set culminated by a stirring rendition of the title track to her debut album, Farmer’s Daughter, in which Ms. Bowersox sings about the emotional trauma of child abuse she said she had received from her mother as she was growing up.

Did ‘American Idol’ Judges Spark A Rush For Celeb TV Panels?

Back when Paula Abdul signed on to be a judge on the first season of “American Idol,” some saw it as a last-ditch effort by a faded pop star to kick-start a stalled career. And though the long-promised comeback album from Abdul never materialized and her spin-off dancing show, this year’s “Live to Dance,” was canceled after one season, it’s beginning to look like Paula was on to something.

For a while, pop stars expanded their “brand” by launching clothing lines, vanity record labels and hawking shoes. Now that the stigma of reality TV has clearly lifted, though, is joining the panel of a singing competition the new celebrity perfume?

Abdul, Cowell Getting Along on ‘X Factor,’ for Now

“We’re still in the honeymoon phase, which will probably only last another minute,” the 48-year-old Abdul told reporters in Singapore. “Simon and I ended up having a wonderful, exquisite, challenging and frightening relationship.”

The two famously bickering former “American Idol” judges will be joining forces again to assess would-be singing stars on Fox’s “The X Factor,” which taped its first judging session earlier this month and will debut this fall in the U.S.

Simon Cowell ‘in talks’ to save Cheryl Cole for ‘X Factor’

It was claimed earlier this week that the British singer has been replaced on the judging panel by Nicole Scherzinger although no formal announcement has been made but the music mogul’s close friend Sinitta says the pair are in talks to try and resolve the situation after Fox executives reportedly insisted she was sacked.

She said: “There is something going on. All I can say is Simon and Cheryl are very close and I believe they are in talks to try and sort something out. As soon as they agree on something then we will hear about it.

“They are having private conversations. Simon really, really wanted Cheryl on the American show. He really fought to have her there.

“They are talking and they are working on something that they will agree on. Simon was 100 per cent behind Cheryl and I am sure that very, very soon, maybe today, we will find out what that decision will be.”

    This is what producer Rodney Jerkins told the Hollywood Reporter. Is this a hint that in addition to Scotty, Lauren and Pia will be signed by Interscope?

    Jerkins has been in the studio with Toscano as recently as last weekend working on a “big diva” record.

    But while he’s known for his pop and R&B sounds, Interscope chairman Jimmy Iovine has already commissioned him to write songs for the country-leaning finalists, winner Scotty McCreery and runner-up Lauren Alaina.

    While Toscano, McCreery and Alaina prepare to head out on the “American Idols Live” tour, Jerkins will be hard at work on tracks for their debut albums.

  • tomk

    If you read between the lines, it appears Pia & Haley at least have something in the works. Haley was quoted as saying “She hasn’t had time to sign her record deal”, and Nigel tweeted that “Jimmy played me a song for Haley’s album…”. I guess they aren’t allowed to yet make any kind of formal announcements about any of them. But I doubt Pia would be in the studio recording if she didn’t have some sort of deal in place.

    Clive Davis used to oversee all of the idols albums, so I think that Jimmy will have a similar role, even with the ones who country or HAC leaning albums. So, it makes sense that he would use the writers and producers that he’s used to working with.

    Stefano at the Kent Shopping Mall is just….sad. I guess you have to live in Seattle to truly appreciate this saying: Nothing good happens in Kent. Hee! No, seriously, the word “armpit” was invented to describe Kent.

    Aren’t you being a bit snobby? The kid is from there – at least he’s not ashamed of where he’s from – why should he be? Everyone comes from somewhere. We’re not all millionaires.

    I’m not a millionaire either, and actually Kent is not all that poor. It’s just very…culturally barren. YMMV and all that!

    In every major metropole, the people in-city think the surrounding suburbs are backwater, esp the working class burbs. IMHO Seattle-ites and SF-ites are the snobbiest this way. Is Kent an “armpit”? Kinda-yeah, like many working-class burbs are. But it has gentrified over the last 10 yrs. Is Kent “culturally barren”? Absolutely not! Like many working-class burbs that are close to the big city, it is FULL of immigrants from all over the globe. It easily has the best and most authentic “ethnic” cuisines & shopping of the entire Seattle area (rivalling only Lynwood and Hwy 99). You can get stuff there that you otherwise would have to travel to Vancouver for. Stefano could do far worse than to come from such a culturally-rich town as Kent.

    It’s heartwarming and exciting to see the love that Adam’s getting in Russia. I wish the USA “got” Adam the way that Europe seems to.

  • Lexus

    Not sure where to post this question, but here seems most appropriate.

    Does anyone have a schedule of Scotty’s TV appearances? I’ve caught him on Access Hollywood, but not really much else. I suspect this week will be busier for him, but I seem to recall being inundated with a flood of TV appearances and interviews etc. during Season 7 & 8 immediately after the coronation. Kris, Adam and the two Davids were everywhere.

    Leno, Ellen, Regis & Kelly, Piers Mogan???

  • http://ucsub.colorado.edu/~hansenkd/BrahmsGuides MahlerFan

    Wow. Just branching out from that link for the Lenox Square event and finding out how many idol imposter FB accounts there are. It’s actually quite hilarious. People have nothing better to do with their lives than pretend to be an AI contestant. And then the number of fantards who actually believe these fake profiles is actually kind of humorous. “Scotty, I love you, plllllzzzz respond to meeeee!”

    Now, there are harmless fan pages that don’t pretend to have any connection to the idols, but I just can’t believe how many actual imposters there are and how many idiots believe they are real. Especially when all it takes is a simple comparison of the language on the official Twitter feeds to that on the imposter FB one. Some of them try to fake people out by having the “Add as Friend” instead of “Like” thing. It’s amazing that FB doesn’t try to purge this crap (not the harmless fan pages, just the imposters).

    Incidentally, I think I did find Haley’s personal pre-Idol FB page. It has a non-Idol-related photo, is VERY private, has no public wall or friendlist or anything.

    I’m glad that AI is giving them official twitter and FB pages so that we can be very aware, if we’re not a bunch of drooling fantards, how many of these moronic imposter pages actually exist.

    I was wondering that as well, and I thought Thursday, when Lauren was on the Tonight Show, that is was supposed to be Scotty. They used to have the whole top 12 on Larry King the week after the finale, so I’m not sure if they will. And I know the winners and runner-ups usually go to the NY morning shows and R&K but nothing’s been said about that this year that I know.

    I know Lauren was home this weekend, then they said Scotty has exams for school next week. Maybe they aren’t scheduling so much because they are younger.

  • Lexus

    Perhaps you’re right Karenc. I just thought – considering how popular this whole season was and how people have really liked the pairing of Scotty and Alaina in the final 2 – the Idol franchise would have jumped on the momentum.

    I stayed up late to watch Leno only to find it was Lauren. It was still a great episode with her, but Scotty’s nowhere to be found. Just odd since as young as Archie was, he was showing up everywhere…and he was the runner up!

    I believe Scotty’s slated to be on R&G on Tuesday, but I haven’t heard a thing more about other appearances. (I read he had an English test yesterday which they probably could have held off for a bit. lol)

  • TwigLA

    I’m sure Regis & Kelly said that Scotty, Lauren, and Haley would be on their show this coming Monday. Not sure how that works with the holiday. Good Morning America also said they would be on next week.
