Exclusive: David Archuleta To Show Personality With New Album
David Archuleta is just seven days away from releasing his highly anticipated sophomore album, The Other Side of Down. Recently we talked with the recording superstar about his new songs, what makes the album different from his debut release, and what he hopes fans take away from the new CD.
Interview: Constantine Maroulis
There once was a time when the anthemic earnestness of ’80s hard rock was considered giggle-worthy, and keeping a straight face while listening to self-helpy bombast ballads like “Don’t Stop Believin’ ” and “Here I Go Again” was possible only with several veneers of snarky irony. Now — well, it’s still kind of true, but far more people are looking back nostalgically to the early-MTV era, and in particular the glam-rock revival of “hair metal.” Critical mass of hair-metal appreciation has built up to the extent that it now has its own jukebox Broadway musical, Rock of Ages, where the archetypal Midwestern boy gets off the bus in the big city hoping to make his dreams come true amid the sleaze and decadence — and the songs of Bon Jovi, Journey, Foreigner, Styx, Poison, Twisted Sister, Whitesnake, et al. Constantine Maroulis, a hard-rock kid who placed sixth in American Idol’s fourth season (booted off for belting Nickelback!), plays that top-billed boy in Rock of Ages (which will rock the Colonial Theatre like a hurricane when it opens this Wednesday) in a Tony-nominated performance. I talked to the Boston Conservatory grad about what makes hair metal sexy to today’s theatergoers:

Diana DeGarmo plays Dolly Parton’s character in ‘9 to 5? at Fox Theatre
Diana DeGarmo convincingly channeled Dolly Parton’s delightful Doralee Rhodes during the musical version of “9 to 5? during opening night Tuesday of a six-day run at Fox Theatre.
DeGarmo, a former Snellville gal, got plenty of applause lines, especially when she threatens lecherous boss Franklin Hart (Joseph Mahowald) with a classic line from the film: “I’m gonna get that gun of mine, and I’m gonna change you from a rooster to a hen with one shot!”

The Biz: Can the New Judges Save American Idol?
Lythgoe also believes that the antidote to the show’s sliding ratings is to find an Idol who can succeed on the scale of a Carrie Underwood or Kelly Clarkson. Craig Marks, editor of the music industry bible Billboard, says that’s been the show’s real problem of late. “Idol was built to create pop stars and divas,” he says. “Those are the biggest stars in music, and they require the least authenticity. As the show became more about rock singer-songwriters than pop, it lost its way because the audience for those kind of singers is much smaller in the music world than it is for the big, glossy, Mariah Carey—type singers. They’ve got to get that schmaltzy pop thing back.”

The show’s chief judge, creator and producer Nigel Lythgoe says the winner is not necessarily the best dancer but the contestant who tries hardest and has the most emotional appeal.

Backstage at DWTS: Tonight’s Controversial Elimination Has Everyone Up In Arms
“It was just unfortunate because it left a dark mark on a beautiful experience and it didn’t need to happen,” front-runner Jennifer Grey tells us of Michael’s elimination. “Everyone here is trying so hard, no one here is a dancer, we’re all coming in as nondancers being taught how to dance, so all people who are willing to put themselves in that vulnerable expression should be treated with respect.”

DWTS’ Chelsie Hightower: Bruno Was Too “Harsh” on Michael Bolton

“It was very harsh,” she told UsMagazine.com Tuesday, referring to Bruno’s remark that Bolton’s jive was “the worst” in 11 seasons. “It was very, very harsh, and I don’t know where it came from. I really don’t. It was hard to hear.”
Bristol Palin Weighs In On ‘Dancing’s’ ‘Boo-Gate’
“Dancing with the Stars” contestant Bristol Palin told Access Hollywood that reports of mom Sarah Palin being booed on Monday’s show were not true.
“I think it was just a few haters out there that want to make a big deal out of it, but it’s not a big deal at all,” Bristol told Access’ Shaun Robinson following Tuesday’s show, where Michael Bolton was sent packing. “All of us knew that they were booing at [Jennifer Grey & Derek Hough’s] scores, not at my mom and I’m not worried about it at all.”
