Phillip Phililps and Scotty McCreery – Christmas at the Grove in Los Angeles – We’ve just managed to get all that Halloween makeup off, and now we hear it’s Christmas. Well, it’s Christmas at the Grove anyway, where on Sunday (Nov. 11) Michael Bolton will be serenading the 100-foot tree that the shopping complex has erected. The event starts at 7:30 p.m. and includes Melanie Fiona, Colbie Caillat, DJ JibbJock, Scotty McCreery, Rickey Minor and His Band and Phillip Phillips. Oh, and there’s a rumor that Santa will be there. So odd that we slept right through Thanksgiving! – Via Wehoville

Khloe Kardashian — The Teleprompter Disaster!

‘The Voice’ Top 12 Party and Perform at the House of Blues – “We’re now 12 out of 45,000 people, so over this whole trip we’ve really become a family,” Nicholas David, from The Voice’s Team Cee Lo, told Rolling Stone as he stood by the bar at the House of Blues on Thursday night. Seeing the odds in those terms, the rigorous road that the 12 finalists for the title of “The Voice” in Season Three have traveled becomes clear. So they certainly deserved the night of celebration they got this week when, after making it to the next round of live shows, the dozen joined their coaches at House of Blues Los Angeles for a performance and party. – Read nire at Rolling Stone

‘SYTYCD’ Judge Mary Murphy Fights Back Against $200,000 Judgment – “So You Think You Can Dance” judge Mary Murphy is trying to get a judge to toss out the $200,000 default judgment her former manager won against her this week … claiming it was a mistake by her lawyer that caused her to lose the case. As TMZ first reported, Michael Sanchez sued Murphy back in May for lost commissions … and along the way made some salacious accusations involving sex and drugs. Earlier this week, Sanchez was awarded $205,160 — plus 10% of any future earnings Murphy rakes in from SYTYCD — because she failed to respond to the suit. But according to docs filed right after the decision, Murphy’s lawyer claims the fault lies entirely with her … claiming she got her dates screwed up and that’s why the answer wasn’t filed on time. – Read more at TMZ

    Scotty McCreery at The Grove – A clip from his new song “Christmas in Heaven”

  • Chrissie H

    “Home” at Christmas at the Grove? I find that strange. Anyroad- it´s nice exposure for Scotty and Philip and I´m looking forward to more and better videos from the event

  • asifclueless

    Adam and his crew are on their way to South Africa for their Concert in Cape Town.

  • bridgette12

    So cool, it’s great to see how some of our Idols have taken their music overseas to new fans. I am so jealous of Adam, I wish I was going to South Africa. It’s going to be a great experience for him and his band, hope they get a chance to do some sightseeing also.

    “Soul Power” Check out the picture of Taylor Hicks.  Awesome campaign.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    “Home” at Christmas at the Grove? I find that strange.”

    I think that the clip for Extra was done earlier and separately from the Xmas show.

  • tripp_ncwy

    It has already been announced that P2 will be singing Home and a Christmas song at the event.

  • asifclueless

    Posible livestream for Cape Town Concert, Tuesday 13 November, 2012.

    And another Adam Concert, Johannesburg, South Africa on November 16, 2012.

    They’ll have time to do some sightseeing between these two concerts.

  • bridgette12

    I hope it’s true about the livestream, it will be great to see Adam perform for the first time in that country. It has to be a surreal moment for him to be performing in South Africa and then on China. 

  • Lexie O’Neill

    Seems like there was a bit of a crowd for the sound check for The Grove last night…The event usually has a crowd of around 25K and they’re making an hour show to be televised on Thanksgiving in LA…  :)

  • Chrissie H

    Oh ok- Home not included in the x -mas show would make a bit more sence. 

  • asifclueless

    Worldclock to convert time.
    The concert in Cape Town will be at noon Central Time for me on Tuesday 13, November, 2012.

  • Chrissie H

    You get a like for your comment , Lexie, even though the link doesn´t work – at least not for me :)

  • TheOther

    Nice write-up from Matt Carter on The World From The Side Of The Moon

  • durbesque

    Phillip can carry ‘Home’ all by himself.  His singing was spot on, and he created plenty of accompaniment on the guitar.  He will do the same with the album songs. 

  • Jazz_11

    Ohhh.. it’s like 1pm at eastern time :(:(

  • bridgette12

    Darn it, I’m going to be at work and won’t be able to see it live, but thank goodness for videos. 

  • Lexie O’Neill

    Sorry, can’t seem to fix.  But I carried over the important stuff.  Now, if only we could get vids later:))  

  • asifclueless

    It’s a good thing that I’m retired otherwise I would call in sick.
    Heh ..heh.  Just kidding.  ;)

    Jazz … There will be PLENTY of great quality videos coming out at nano times.

    Glamberts all around the world are good.  :)

  • loveroftalent

    1:00 for me…I will be at work, but just maybe I will be able to sneak a few peeks on the computer….Hoping for some amazing videos…This must be so surreal for Adam and his band to be wanted all over the world…South Africa has been wanting Adam for awhile now….

  • Jazz_11

    Yeah.. I will just to wait until I get home

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Oh, OK. lol When I saw Scotty’s set and that it was at night, I figured that P2 would be singing in a similar Xmas-y set, but maybe not.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Kelly is performing at the American Music Awards.  From Kelly’s “whosay” blog:

    Favorite Artist – Adult Contemporary for the American Music Awards!

  • DB987

    Lauren’ at a  Breast Cancer fundraiser tonight with Kristen Kelly Maggie Rose Heidi Newfield and LeeAnn Rhimes.  I gues Lee Ann had her join her on stage for “Blue”  Just saw this tweet.

    At the @WPOC Girls w/Guitars and @leannrimes brought @lauren_alaina to sing Blue. Lauren cried and so did the whole venue! #metoo #sosweet

  • asifclueless

    Beautiful Views from Cape Town!! And Gorgeous Adam!!!


  • asifclueless

    YAY … O/ …
    I’m Channel serfing and saw Kris Allen singing “God Bless America” on my PBS.

    Beautiful!!  And he is like shaking hands, and hugging those veterans.

     Great Job, Kris!!!  :)

  • Lucie Laniel

    I would be very surprised that PP2 would get to perform more than 2 songs since it seems that all Scotty is doing (except both of his are Christmas songs).

  • girlygirltoo

    There are a bunch of people other than Scotty and Phillip performing tonight, so I doubt either of them will sing more than 2-3 songs. It is always strange watching performances taped for Extra! at the Grove — the people standing behind the performer seem to stand there — most of them don’t really seemed into the song — but maybe that’s because they know they’re on camera and don’t want to look silly? It doesn’t really matter who the performer is, either — I can’t remember ever seeing the crowd for these tapings ever really get excited.

  • durbesque

    Apparently, they replayed Kris’ performance of Lee Greenwood’s “God Bless the USA” (see YouTube).  Kris’ beautiful voice and personal warmth make this a memorable moment in the tribute.

  • CanadianLady

    Scotty’s song was from the rehearsal last night.

  • Nadine_Bitch

    Woah! that’s a lotsa cover mags Adam has been on through the years. And he said it wasn’t even a complete collection:

  • Nadine_Bitch

    One last post, I promise:) lol

    This is another great mixmash up of AL&MJ’s Cuckoo/FYE/OffTheWall from DJDigiMark:

  • asifclueless

    Thanks … durbesque.  My mistake.
    I was channel serfing and saw the tribute to the veterans earlier and then I saw Kris singing … wooohooo.. so excited.
    And then later learnt that it was replayed from you and from mj’s post above.

    “PBS offering veterans tribute Featuring Pia Toscano and Kris Allen – These are encore performances from past episodes of PBS Memorial Day/July 4th concerts in DC. …”

    I agree Kris did a great job and his warm personality shines.  :)

  • Lexie O’Neill
  • BonnieDee

    Oh I hope there is video of that.

  • loveroftalent

    Wow…I never realized just how many magazine covers he had done…Very impressive….

  • asifclueless

    (P2 sang Home again later along with his Xmas-y song(s).)

    Phillip Phillips Christmas song at The Grove

  • Nikki

    My videos of Phillip from last night:


    This Christmas:

    Tolerate the blurriness at the beginning – the videos do clear up, but I was stuck behind a lot of tall people whose heads got in the way and I had to film with my arms above my head.

    Phillip sounded great last night – far better than I ever thought he sounded on the show.
