A U.K. tour of the musical is reportedly in the works.

The Scottish singer told the British newspaper, “I’m definitely going to be on stage. I’d rather that than having to sit watching people up there looking like me.”

    Cheryl Cole’s £3m U.S. deal as singer signs up for American X Factor launch

    And that it looks like they won’t be singing Madonna songs this week on the X Factor. At least Mary won’t.

    I love Kristen :)

  • joelhss

    I didn’t realize how short Lee is. I was also surprised when Kris and David A. did something together awhile back that David was taller than Kris by just maybe his hairdo of the night, but everyone always talks about how small David A. is, but I guess he has a lot of company in that department.

  • TwigLA

    Wow, I really liked that song by Kristen McNamara.

    There were so many talented people who auditioned Season 8.

  • heidijoy

    Love the Extra featuring David and others @ the Grove. Had to laugh when Mario said “Archie” when he talked about him getting the crowd going. I know we all call him Archie but loved it coming from Mario too! ha!ha!

  • djafan

    I was at The Grove for this! It was so much fun and David was amazing as always, at one point his name was being chanted before the actual taping started. There were literally thousands of people there.

    I hope David and Charice have some more opportunities to sing HYALMC, they did a great job.

  • sagi

    Kristen McNamara, I don’t remember her, but that sounded very nice, indeed!!

    Appears Danny will have an interview coming up sometime soon on CMT. Evan Farmer hosts the CMT Top 20 show.

    Today, November 29, 2010, 23 minutes ago
    EvanFarmer (Evan Farmer)
    Interviewed @dannygokey, @rodneyadkins & Alan Jackson today. Seriously….I get paid for this???Tomorrow headed to CMT artists of the year.

    .

    The idea of Susan Boyle starring as herself on stage is mind-boggling. Has she ever kept it together enough to appear more than a couple of days in a row for short appearances?

  • fuzzywuzzy

    I’m pretty surprised by the news of Susan starring in a musical about her life too. I remember that she missed almost every other show on the BGT tour and her trips to do promo in the U.S. are always as short as possible. Maybe, Susan has found some help in coping with the stress of having to commit to a set schedule of performances, or the schedule that they will set will be as “relaxed” as possible.

    Gee. Charice is really tiny.

  • girlygirl

    Looks like Kris might make a surprise appearance at a event in his hometown

    “This is for all you fans in the Conway, Ark area, who like Music Empowers are also fans of Blackbird Academy. Mark on your calendars 6PM on 12/18 for the “Traditions to Recall” performance at Staples Auditorium. There will be music, theatre, dance and creative writing performances by Blackbird students. I’d make a point of being there if I were you..you never know who might show up.”

    I love The Band Perry but that cover is AWFUL. I liked Kristen Mcnamara too.

    If it’s true that she means to appear on a stage show, I have to think they will fully prepare with understudies… (If I were an investor in that show, I’d insist on at least 3 or 4, lol.)

    But yes, it would be nice for her if things have become more stable and less stressed.

  • girlygirl

    Did you guys see that Kara is writing a memoir?

    I’d be too scared to invest. While there may be great money-making potential, there is also a chance it could be one of the biggest meltdowns of all time.

  • Indigobunting

    Lol, you find Idol fans in unlikely places sometimes.

    This guy (appears to be French perhaps?) reviewed Danny’s single in amongst reviews of the Sick Puppies and hard rock groups. Kid Rock’s album is reviewed on the same page too. Very interesting; he seems to be a huge Danny Gokey fan, go figure.

    My favorite item adjoining Danny’s is the one with the skull. lol!

    Aww, the Evan Farmer bromance continues with Danny…

    EvanFarmer: RT {name deleted}: @EvanFarmer tell me, is @dannygokey as nice as he seems? Nicer, more genuine, and 1000% about the important things.

    This makes me smile! :)

  • Indigobunting

    Aww, Steph, that was a nice tweet.

    This tweet was on a little different track; someone admitting to stealing a candid photo of Danny on her flight today, lol.

    My creeper pic of Danny waiting for his luggage next to me in the tunnel. I had to do it…don’t judge. http://plixi.com/p/59967893

    That Evan Farmer seems pretty sweet. And he really did seem to love Danny last time Danny was on that show.

  • steph6449

    I’m not gonna judge on that creeper pic after I sneaked a couple of pics of Anoop once after finding him standing next to me in the airport security line, ha. I’m not especially a fan of his, but I took the photo for someone who was :) And just because I could, I guess ;)

    You may get a kick out of this;
    “Today, Kris Allen and the Southern Thunder had a call-in interview with MN.B.R.T Radio to talk about Big Foot. During the interview, a listener asked if he is the Kris Allen that won American Idol. Listen below to hear what Kris Allen and the Southern Thunder had to say.”

    I think you need to share those photos, Steph, lol!

    New Spoilers from VFTW:

    The online voting will take place at AT&T’s website. Auditions will take place for the first 6 episodes (California, Nashville, Milwaukee, New Jersey, Austin, New Orleans in that order). There will then be 5 Hollywood episodes, a live voting kick off episode that highlights the eligible contestants, a reveal episode to announce the top 12, and a wildcard episode to let 3 more people into the finals. The online voting may stay in place until the finals are down to 12.

    I guess we will get a new thread soon to discuss this?

  • smeggingnuts

    So it sounds like Adam’s Take Two has been permanently blocked. Amazon is sending out emails saying that they are unable to fill orders from the supplyers. I guess RCA was able to put a stop to it o/

    Also starting to get reviews of his Acoustic Live EP….its mostly about Beiber lol but there is a great paragraph about Adam at the end.
