Kanye West, Alicia Keys, Rihanna each take home two trophies

LOS ANGELES – Kanye West had nothing to complain about Sunday, as he picked up his first-ever American Music Awards and delivered a flawless, if subdued, performance of his new single, à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã…“Heartless.à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬ 

West was a double winner, collecting trophies for favorite male rap/hip-hop artist and favorite rap/hip-hop album for his CD, à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã…“Graduation.à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬ 

Pop Tarts: Jordin Sparks is Proud to be a Virgin But Finds Always Being a Good Girl Difficult

LOS ANGELES à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬’  Jordin Sparks has made no secret of the fact that she’s a virgin and plans to stay that way until her wedding night, a personal pledge that was reinforced backstage at Sunday’s American Music Awards after the songstress was presented with an un-televised award as Favorite Adult Contemporary Artist. The 18-year-old was truly flattered when we gave her credit for her chastity pledge and for setting herself apart from so many other trouble-makers in Tinseltown, saying a humble thank you multiple times.

“The role model tag has definitely been thrust on me and that’s something I don’t take lightly,” Sparks said.

DAVID COOK

David Cook, the smug-grinned rocker who won the most recent season of à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã…“American Idol,à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬  has exactly two settings to his voice: Regular Howl and Anguished Howl. The beauty of his à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã…“Idolà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬  run was in the way he deployed them. When reworking modern pop classics à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬’  Michael Jacksonà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã…“Billie Jean,à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬  Lionel Richieà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã…“Helloà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬  à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬’  heà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢d begin with Regular, shift to Anguished for an unexpected line or three midsong, then retreat. In this way Mr. Cook managed to appear meaningful, restrained and at times even clever.

Pitting debut CDs of 2 ‘Idol’ Davids

In May, the big question wasn’t Obama or McCain; nope, the men whose merits we were mulling over were named Davids Archuleta and Cook.

Cook went on to win American Idol by a landslide, but the Archuleta contingent was strong enough to push the teen’s self-titled debut album to a No. 2 bow on the Billboard charts (darn you, Taylor Swift!).

Cook’s eponymous debut followed a week later, so it seems like a good time to see how the two stack up.

Eric West Teams With American Idol David Hernandez On Debut Album

New York, NY (PRWEB) November 24, 2008 — Actor and singer Eric West who earned honors as one of US Weekly’s “One’s To Watch” and IMDB.com’s “Top Fresh Faces” is also adding songwriter and producer to his list of jobs as he works with American Idol alumni David Hernandez on his upcoming debut album.

David Hernandez’s untitled album is scheduled to arrive next year. Eric West is also finishing work on his long-awaited debut album, which brings together an A-list of guest producers, which will also arrive in 2009. His previous credits including working with Mario, Cher, Jeannie Ortega and Daniel De Bourg.

”I’m excited about his project, the best part is always writing from a different point of view,” says Eric.

West will be on hand on December 8th, 2008 for The 2008 Ladies Lotto 3rd Annual Benefit: A Fundraiser for Charity Water in New York City.

Hernandez heads on out an 18 city US tour as part of the “Idols In Concert Tour” with past Idol stars Diana Degarmo, Kimberley Locke and Chikezie Eze.

‘Idol’-ize your holiday

Locke doesn’t care what carols her fellow “American Idol” alums croon on their holiday tour, which launches Saturday in Pittsburgh, as long as she gets to sing about that jolly, happy soul with a corncob pipe and a button nose and two eyes made out of coal.

“‘Frosty the Snowman’ is my favorite all-time Christmas song, ever since I was a little girl,” the 30-year-old Locke said. “I remember sitting there watching that cartoon, so fascinated by him and that song. It just stuck in my head.”

Ford Sticks With ‘American Idol’ Sponsorship

While the economic uncertainly surrounding American car makers has called into question some of the nation’s biggest marketing budgets, struggling Ford Motor Co. will be sticking with its American Idol sponsorship for the 2009 season.

“Yes, the partnership between Ford and Idol continues in 2009,” confirmed a Ford spokesperson.

Spokespersons for Fox as well as Idol producer Fremantle also confirmed that the relationship remains intact.

That is welcome news to everyone involved with the show, as Ford last year spent nearly $78 million on its American Idol sponsorship (including commercials), and has spent some $328.5 million over the seven seasons of Idol, according to data from TNS Media Intelligence.

    Thanks for information.about DC being a solo artist from a blogger..
    It is unfair to judge DC on 2 songs(lo.coranation) that are just ok to me..of course an artsit has many so what songs are mjs favorites on his cd?

    Daivd vs Daivd was not enoughGreat now an article is comparing the Presidential race to an Idol contest like is a reach unless the Davids can do something about the economy..wait they probably could do better …since the stock market plunged deeper then Simons money bank which he swims like scrooge duck.

  • FolkFan

    The azcentral.com article comparing the liners from DA and DC’s CDs is pretty funny.

    Yeah, he wrote “Falling,” and co-wrote “Somebody Out There,” but I figured that AZCentral was only looking at the wal-mart version of the album, not the iTunes deluxe version.

  • waffle

    That New York Times review of DC is interesting. On the whole, I think it was quite complimentary of David.

    Oh, and while I like “Lie”, my personal favorite lyrics-wise is “Avalanche”. I swoon every time I listen to it. Even if it’s the longest track on the record, it ends way too soon for me. :)

  • FolkFan

    When the NYT review popped up last night, this running discussion started on DCO. It went something like this : Hey—the NYT liked it! Ack–the NYT thinks he’s smug. Wait—what the hell is the NYT saying? Oh, no—do you think that the NYT didn’t like it? It’s okay—I reread it, and the NYT liked it. Etc., etc.

    I do think that the NYT was ultimately quite positive about it (“unusually appealing,” etc.), and even with the songs that it singles out at all negatively, the reviewer decides that DC’s singing redeemed them. Plus, he liked Lie, and I just love that song.

  • Jabkmc

  • FolkFan

    That LA Times “The Envelope” guy does enjoy taking his cracks at DC. Well, I’d say that DC would take a nationally televised performance—he was the only person without a CD eligible for an award who did one.

    He did use nice pictures of both of the Davids.

  • hypertwink

    About the LA Times “surprising snub,” I don’t think the writer gets the reason behind playing the red carpet. Anway, Cookie got to present on the show while performed in the pre-show. All in all, his management, publicist and label are probably ecstatic that he (and Light On and half of Declaration) got exposure.

  • Michelle

    I will be very nice to the LATimes guy and assume by “snub” he means he thought DC deserved better. Personally I thought it was great he was the sole performer of the Red Carpet show. That stage with his name plastered all over it was visible the whole time the press was out with the celebs. So that was some good publicity right there.

    Not to mention the entire red carpet bleacher section going nuts whenever he showed up on the carpet (that’s what they get for inviting DC fans to fill the seats, heh.) At one point we had a “Da-vid” chant going. It was ftw.

  • Kirsten

    I do think that the NYT was ultimately quite positive about it

    Huh. I did not get that impression at all. I thought that it said that Cook was better than the material and that Cook shows potential for improving. “Finally Mr. Cook has forgone the Howls for a third way, giving hope there could someday be a fourth, a fifth or even more.”

    I just don’t think categorizing him “as the smug-grinned rocker who won the most recent season of à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã…“American Idol,à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬  has exactly two settings to his voice: Regular Howl and Anguished Howl.” is meant to be complimentary. Howling is generally not a positive way of describing singing. Neither is saying that he generally only has two styles of singing. “Like the genre he loves, Mr. Cook is hampered here by dim, amorphous songwriting” Ouch.

    Actually, I think that he was a bit harsh. I think that Cook showed on the show that is capable of more nuance.

    It is interesting how people see different things in the same article, though. Kind of like stats…

  • weareallinnocent

    While I agree with all the views expressed above re the NYT article, I came away happy with what impressed me as an overall upbeat tenor to the opinion. I guess by that I mean, to me, the author really seemed to approach the record wanting to like it, found some things about it that he really didn’t expect though liked it anyway (to his apparent surprise), but wants to acknowledge Cook has much more potential as he displayed, in part, on the album and ultimately he challenges Cook to step up to himself (and fans to hang on and wait if The Record doesn’t do it for them.) I believe even Cook admits this album is a collection of many parts of him, a step forward on his journey, and a glimpse of many sides of his prismatic musicality. This review reflects this too, in my view.

  • FolkFan

    Re: NYT: The reviewer says that DCTR is “unusually appealing” and that he can’t obscure his “essential geniality” which could have been a limitation but “turns out to be an asset.” He disses two of the songs, but says that DC’s broad, capable voice . . . redeems” them and “adds shade and texture to ‘Permanent.’” He then praises DC’s use of a “dulcet mode” on two songs, Avalanche and “Lie,” which he says is “the albumà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s highlight, and also its best-written track.” And suggests that DC has expanded his range and may expand it further in the future. All of that is pretty positive. Basically, DC forced him to get past his inherent distaste for the genre to (at least grudgingly) admit that DC has put forward an appealing record.

    Typical NYT review—couldn’t just be straightforward. But my guess is that metacritic.com will ultimately read the review to be on balance pretty positive.

  • Michelle

    Good lord, those poor people at metacritic who will have to assign a number value to that review…

    I read it as positive, like the reviewer wasn’t that impressed with Idol David and had him all figured out, but found new sides to him on the album. By the end he seems pretty open to hearing more.

    But reading NYT reviews is a lot like reading tea leaves, so — ymmv.

  • tinawina

    Kirsten, I think that’s why the OP used the word “ultimately”. Eventually, it ends on a semi-good note, although he certainly gets his share of criticisms in. personally I don’t think it was a straight pan or a praise, it was somewhere in between. What I got from it was “This guy is limited in style but likeabale and talented enough to elevate his rather lackluster songs, and he shows promise that one day he can expand his versatility to include styles and songs that are more agreeable to this reviewer’. So yes to Cook’s personality and ability to sell a song, no to (most of) the songwriting and to the “rock howl” in general. That’s my take anyway.

    And with that, I’m already bored with this topic. LOL.

  • Kirsten

    What I got from it was à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã…“This guy is limited in style but likeabale and talented enough to elevate his rather lackluster songs, and he shows promise that one day he can expand his versatility to include styles and songs that are more agreeable to this reviewerà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢.

    Hey, that’s exactly what I got too.

    And with that, Ià ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢m already bored with this topic. LOL.

    LOL. At least he got us talking about the review. Maybe that’s why he wrote it in such way. If he’d wrote “This CD sucks more than my new hoover” or “This is the bestest CD EVER!!11!” we would know exactly what he meant. But, then he’d probably be writing in the comments section of EW rather than being the reviewer for NYT. LOL. I guess he has to earn his paycheque. Goodness knows that I am more likely to check out a review everybody is talking about (I don’t read them all. There are far too many of them and many of them aren’t that well-written. At least this guy can write).

    It is interesting how people see different things in the same article, though. Kind of like statsà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬ ¦

    Yeah, kind of like the “does Cook have the most successful Idol coronation song or not….” debate that went down when the Magic Rainbow went platinum. If even stats aren’t concrete proof of anything and so open to debate, you can fuggetabout definitively deciphering ambiguous reviews.

    My interpretation, for the record, of the NYC critic was a begrudging “hey, it’s actually pretty good…if you like that sort of thing. Which, you know, I don’t. But if I did, it’s not bad.”

    “David Cook speaks to Blender”

    I feel bad that Cookie knows that some of the Archie fans have said some really mean things about him. Cookie does read the boards. It’s not a competition anymore, lol, there is plenty of room in the music biz. I love them both. I am a die hard Archie fan but I respect Cook and he is just so gosh darn talented that it’s hard not to notice. Well Cookie, if you are reading this blog, this Archie fan loves ya too. :) I hope you both sell a million records by X-MAS.

  • Davidx2

    Well said, Sue! I’m a fan of both Davids too. Musically, Archie is more my style but how can you not love Cook. He’s intelligent, humble and has a great sense of humour….and he’s always treated DA with love and respect. It’s a shame how some fans act….I’ve seen it on both sides. Archie fans who hate Cook and Cook fans who love to pick on Archie. I can’t believe that either would condone this and knowing that Cook has heard some of it is sad indeed. :sad_wp: I hope that some of those fansites will do something to stop this from going any further (like deleting hateful comments). I’d hate to see this ruin the Davids’ friendship. :cry_wp:

  • FolkFan

    I pretty much just hang out on DCO, and as the official website, it’s probably no surprise that they delete anything hateful pretty quickly. As most Cook fans seem to view DA as DC’s “other” younger brother, people are pretty aggressive on DCO about flagging anything bad.

    I don’t hang out on any of the unofficial websites, but I have some trouble seeing the folks at david-cook.org (or “the dash” as they’re calling themselves these days) putting up with that sort of thing.

  • LK08

    Davidx2- You are right that the nasty stuff goes both ways. I wouldn’t worry about it affecting the Davids’ friendship. I know for sure that David Archuleta has been very mature about the “stuff” that happens. He has said many times that it is part of the business. They will be fine.

    Trina- I know David A is in the age range of Miley and the Jonas Brothers, but he doesn’t fit any more than Cook does in the Disney crowd. There is a reason he turned down an offer to be in High School Musical 3. Oh well, I expect the Disney thing is part of the AI winner gig. I guess the exposure is good anway. It is too bad it is on Christmas day.

  • wordnerdarchie

    Oh well, I expect the Disney thing is part of the AI winner gig. I guess the exposure is good anway. It is too bad it is on Christmas day.

    But it’s good that this gig is taped several weeks earilier, so Cook will be having time off during the holidays. He deserves it. LOL.
