‘American Idol’ winner Phillip Phillips finds ‘Home’ with strong, self-written debut album – NEW YORK — With the success of his debut single, “Home,” Phillip Phillips isn’t just the dude who won “American Idol.” He’s the dude with that folk-rock hit, according to the fans he’s met. “People are like, ‘You’re the guy with the song “Home,’” and I’m like, ‘Yeah, yeah.’ They say … ‘So do you have any other music out?’ I’m like, ‘There are some covers.’ ‘What from?’ I say, “’American Idol.’” ‘You were on “American Idol”?’” he recalled. “There was a lot of people who didn’t even know I was on ‘Idol,’” he continued. “I think that’s cool.” – Read more at the Washington Post

The smile that says she’s back? Cheryl Cole sparks rumours she is returning to The X Factor after meeting up with Simon Cowell – There’s been no love lost between them since he sensationally axed her from The X Factor USA in 2011 after just four rounds of auditions. But Cheryl Cole has ignited rumours she could be returning the the UK version of the show after she was spotted arriving at Simon Cowell’s Los Angeles mansion on Wednesday night. The 29-year-old singer reportedly spent three-and-a-half hours at the music mogul’s Beverly Hills home, with the pair believed to be holding secret talks about the possibility of the Girls Aloud star returning to the panel of the British show.

    MAMA’s were great!  I was right when I said if Adam ever got a look at Big Bang, he’d become OBSESSED with their clothes.  He said he wanted to raid their closet.

  • mmb

    Wow.  That is BRAVE with a capital B of Carrie.  First major role with both acting and singing.  Live.  In a beloved musical the movie version of which still is broadcast on network TV at least once a year and which is firmly imprinted on pretty much everyone’s brain (including little kids — that video/dvd is owned by every family with little kids I know).  In a role made famous by Julie Andrews.  That is super ballsy.  I can’t quite see her in the part, but I assume she and her people know what she is doing.  I give her a ton of credit for going for it

  • lovetheusa1776

    Yes, the performances were taken down quickly.  Fortunately, dl’d before they were gone – including that striking walk down the red carpet.  Wow – is that an incredible visual – tall, graceful, beautiful – dressed in black – magnificent looking man.

    The performance was outstanding, including the band and dancers.  His vocals live are the best there are, along with a riveting stage presence.  Lambert on stage shows you how it’s done.

  • windmills

    It’s not a remake of the movie. It’s a revival of the stage musical, except it’ll be on TV. I have a post queued up with a little more detail.

    They are not remaking the movie. THey are reprising the original Broadway musical which starred Mary Martin, as a TV special.

    Carrie seems an odd choice for me, but she has sung ‘Sound of Music’ before. Julie Andrews will always be Marie Von Trapp for me.

  • girlygirltoo

    well Julie Andrews did the role with her normal British accent, so I don’t think it’ll matter if Carrie just does this with her normal accent.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/6KBNBAY3M4742SQMHUMAV6CVGQ Mike

    Thanks for posting…home sick…so gave me something to do.  Have to say ‘Fool’s Dance’ has been my least favorite of all the songs on the cd…but really liked it here.  It seemed odd to have Phillip on stage with no band & no audience…I think he really feeds off the band members & the audience…being alone on the stage is not his preferred mode of operation.

  • http://twitter.com/Sassycatz Sassycatz

    But the British accent has always been “a substitute” for any European accent for American productions. How often have you seen Brits playing Germans in all those WWII movies and miniseries?! But never have I heard a southern accent being used in a story set in Austria! (Interestingly enough, Brits are pretty good at Southern accents too, e.g., Vivian Leigh and Jessica Tandy, to name just two.) What’s going to interest me is if she tries to downplay her accent or (Horrors!) tries to sound Austrian. Mary Martin was American, so I guess it can work, but I already don’t buy CU in the role because, although she sings well enough, she’s not the best actress.

  • onslow2

    That was a good looking show. Adam was fantastic!

  • http://twitter.com/Sassycatz Sassycatz

    Actually, considering Mary Martin roles, I think Carrie would be a natural for the role of Nellie Forbush in South Pacific. 

  • tucker davis

    I really enjoyed these AOL sessions with Phillip. I thought ‘A Fool’s Dance’ & ‘Hold On’ sounded better than on the cd. And ‘Hold On’ should silence his critics that say he can’t play guitar! That is a seriously talented dude!   Thanks for posting.

  • Anny_nanny

    “Have to say ‘Fool’s Dance’ has been my least favorite of all the songs on the cd…but really liked it here.”

    I do not understand how they were able to kill the “Thriller” on cd! They could spoil my most favorite song in the performance of Philip. It’s just phenomenal!

    “I think he really eats members of the band and the audience…”

    Agree. But when Phillip playing the guitar – I love it.

    I love that Scotty is considered latino lol. I know he’s a quarter puerto rican, but still.

  • lovetheusa1776

    Yes, his red carpet walk was a stunner – emerging from the limo – that long, long stretch of red with only Adam on it dressed in black – dramatic and thrilling – one of the few who could get away with it.  And he’s got the voice to match the looks – brilliant performer.

    As an American, so proud of his tremendous acceptance in other countries.  Says so much about the state of music here. 

    I’m sure Adam would not care about the “oversight.”  He’s way beyond that now.

    It’s possible MJ doesn’t care – that’s fine – it’s her blog.  I don’t care about 90% or more of what she puts up.  Most of it’s boring like the KC overkill.  I’m interested in voices, not gossip.  When I want depth or recognition of great performances I go elsewhere.

  • lovetheusa1776

    Not a great movie, but enjoyable – good musical numbers and JS did a fine job.  Looking forward to watching her on Divas.

  • Axxxel

    No mentionining of Adam Lambert…maybe because the video evidence got pulled down so quickly and maybe no typical American entertainment website is reporting it ? The thing is,  when I was reading the Idol headlines yesterday (GMT+7 hours) , the show MAMA in Hong Kong  was still going on…. I think I just missed Adam ‘s performance on the official live stream. So it might also be a “time thing”…

    Then again. still fun to read postings of   Adam Lambert fans who  are so fast and up to date.. Sometimes I wonder where you all live… One of you already said that he/she is stationed in Middle East. I myself am in South East Asia…Simon was right… when he said American Idol has found a world wide star.. 
    ETA: you all already gave alternative links for the videos.

  • MellyPer1692

    Lol, there are tons of posts here regarding Idols that entertainment websites don’t cover. I doubt it’s that. Also, alternative vids were posted.

    So why is Adam Lambert singing with 1.8 billion people watching not covered here? Yet the usual suspects singing at the corner coffee house get all the print? Thank you posters who did throw a few lines in and/or posted videos.

  • HermeticallySealed

    Twelve seasons of Idol contestants (with 10 different judges), multiple seasons and versions of Voice and X-Factor, and their judges, Glee, Survivor, and a real life to deal with.  I don’t begrudge MJ any choices she makes on her own blog.

    Love all Adam Lambert’s fans here!!!
    You guys are as great as the man you stan.
    Adam was amazeballs at the MAMA.

    That morning I woke up at 4 am waiting for the livestream and videos. I hadn’t been on my computer for a few weeks … busy with real life thingies .. lost a  family member, thanksgiving gathering, and a daughter flew in from overseas for the funeral and a visit for just a short time.

    I was disappointed that they took down the Forever Confident Adam Red Carpet Walk and the performance of WWFM and Trespassing that I posted earlier.

    But billions of people enjoyed and appreciated Adam ..especially PSY .. he psybert so hard Chunkey proclaimed GLAMNAM STYLE FOREVER!!!  LOL

    Here’s another video of Adam’s red carpet strut and interview:

    http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XNDgyMDk3MjQ4.html

    I really, really love the way the MAMA did the red carpet – so much less chaotic than the usual melee we see.  But wow, I’d be intimidated as all fuck by that long, totally barren expanse of red carpet, lined by the paps!  Adam, however, was completely in his element – he looked like a model on a catwalk.  Fierce as can be.  And that same fierceness was very much in evidence during his performance.  Loved his entrance; loved the bonus strut down the catwalk during the performance.  The vocals, it almost goes without saying, were as impeccable as ever.  A great, great appearance for him.

  • marmom07

    Adam sounded amazing (as usual), he really killed it live. He looked great too. His beard looks good (I don’t want to see it all the time but it makes a nice dramatic change). I much prefer this color which I’m assuming is his natural facial hair color as opposed to when he had it black (that just made him look too sinister). It fits with the brown highlights.
     I’m loving the super sized afros on his dancers and on part of the band. They work well in a large venue, easily visible and have a nice dynamic movement to go along with the music. The jacket made by the Blondes is perfect. Very Rawk star!!

    This was so full of win. So excited for all of these opportunists he’s getting to perform all over the world.

  • marmom07

    The clips of MAMA showing PSY’s face while watching Adam perform are just priceless. He is clearly mesmerized by the performance.

    Adam Lambert in Jakarta ? OMG OMG OMG *faints* OMG OMG OMG…..
    One suggestion, he should just do like Katy Perry and Justin Bieber… perform in Sentul (which is a bit far from the city but closer to Bogor (where APEC held their meeting)….

    It is maybe not practical , there will be hopefullly shuttle buses from the city and the traffic on the highway Jakarta -Bogor will be stuck for a while but….it will be worth it… and Adam can spend the night in quiet Bogor instead of busy Jakarta

  • MellyPer1692

    They’re probably are aliens doing that, lol. MAMA was broadcast to over 13 couuntries and has a HUGE audience, but you know how satellites are, martians were probably getting the signal too! I know here on Earth, he’s certainly reaching far and wide to many different countries and getting great audiences and stellar reviews. :). Between these China gigs and the sold out South African shows, he’s certainly proving that he’s a concert draw, which is so important and not everyone from Idol achieves as we’ve seen.

  • MellyPer1692

    I don’t think that the Bali concert is going to be accessible to as many people, the ticket prices for the New Years Eve celebration are so expensive. Considering all the other dates that are being revealed, Jakarta is probably a safe bet.

    David Cook this year also did guest appearances here and thereon Indonesian TV  and gave a concert in Jakarta….but it was stil in the middle of town.And he did a duet  it was funny because he was the 7th american idol and he sang a duet with the 7th winner of Indonesian idol…

    Wow … Do you mean that 2 billion people in China and India or the 2.3 billion people across the world targeted by the network were watching the show just to see Adam do whatever he did best on stage? Wow … How many units has he sold then from the last album worldwide and galaxywide? Gazillions i bet!

    I can’t remember mentioning ALL 2.3 billion people who watched MAMA were there only to watch Adam. I replied to your snarky/shocking question to asifclueless about billions of people watching it. And I just pointed out China and India already have 2 billion population and K-POP, not Adam, is SUPER HUGE in Asia. Nobody here was suggesting Billions of people were there only to watch Adam. We are just happy that he has opportunity like this.

    I don’t know about you, but for me, I’m happy for Anyone, I mean ANYONE who would have an opportunity like this.

    HENNESSY LIVE EVENT IN SHANGHAI ADAM LAMBERT STREAM

    Worl Clock:  http://tinyurl.com/chcpy2o   REDCARPET @ 6:30PM

  • jan

    Targeting 2.3 billion and having 2.3 billion actually watching are 2 totally different things. I think this is hype by the people who produce the show.

    The total population of the world is about 7 billion. 2.3 billion means 1 out of every 3 people living on this planet right now. Do you really think that 1 out of 3 people living on this planet were tuned into a Korean language broadcast? I know Kpop is very popular – but that’s a lot of people. Think about it – if 1 out of 3 people in the world were watching the same thing there should have been some major things happening – huge new stories, sales, etc.

    Check the iTunes charts -do you see any huge jumps in sales (or even any jumps) for the artists who appeared on the show for any of the countries where the show was broadcasted.

    I have a young friend who lives in the Philippines. I asked if she watched. She didn’t even know that the program was on. That means no one in her social life of workplace talked about it.

    That said – it is an honor for any artist to appear on the show. Asia is an emerging market and it is a great opportunity to perform.

    Even in that rehearsal clip, Adam sounds great and looks terrific! I can only imagine how much better he will look and sound at the actual performance.

  • MellyPer1692

    Fuzzy, he already performed. I just put the link to the Just Jared article on today’s headline thread.

    lukien, I really envy you your fascination with Mr.Lambert. I can count on you making comment every time Adam name is mentioned. It warms my heart knowing that there is someone in the universe that follows his every move…
    Keep on doing good work,mate..

  • dcglam

    OMG — Amazing rehearsal footage from China!!!   Thanks so much for posting that video, asifclueless.   Adam looked and sounded sensational. :-)

    This is all very true. The important thing is what is contained in your last paragraph. It was an honor for Adam to be asked to appear on the show.  :) Based on the video someone presented here, he did one hell of a great job.  Good for you, Adam Lambert.

    WOW!  Just WOW!  Adam is an International star!  Loved the performance!  Thanks.

  • lukien

    Thank you dear Oksana. It warms my heart too that you follow my every comment. Gosh i have a kinda follower / stalker. Lucky me!

  • Oksana4626

    Dear lukien. Don’t flatter yourself. I don’t follow you, I follow Adam. You just happen to be there.

  • lukien

    Dear Nadine, i always say good for him or good luck for him, that means something, right? Altho if you recalled, my initial comment was directed to the comment that stated BILLIONS of people liked and appreciated Adam because he performed in a network that is targeting 2.3 billion people. It’s streching it too much, isnt it? I think i live in the same country with Axeell, but i didnt watch or even knew the show existed until there is a mention in the thread, i suppose the show is on a cable network, which means people need to pay for it, or if it airs in local tv channels, i wont know anyway since i hardly watch local network, apart from the current x-factor and bpl.
    Anywho, have a good day in Dubai!

  • lukien

    But i am flattered already, you cant take that away from me … Still, thank you tho for acknowledging my mere presence and wish you a great Sunday wherever you are … or wherever Adam is since you are following him, right?

    Honestly? So WHAT? Hyperbole is the nectar of every Idol Fandom. It’s harmless, really. The Academy Awards and other US award shows always boast about the “potential” numbers of their world-wide audience.  No one gripes. But, the reality is, only certain shows merit that kind of global broadcast. The MAMAs are, apparently, one of those shows. And here we have one of our American Idols being asked to perform on this show. That’s kind of a big deal no matter how you spin it.  The idea that anyone would fuss over whether the audience was in the billions or millions seems kind of … oh, I don’t know. I can’t be bothered to figure that one out. I can do the math, and I do understand billions is way, way less than millions. But, since MILLIONS is pretty awesome, why fuss over it? 

  • lukien

    Help me to understand, billions is way way less than millions?
    So to sum up, hyperbole is accepted in adam fandom, but to comment about it is called making a fuss?
    Ok noted. Lesson learned! Thank you and good morning!

  • http://kristentheyellowlab.blogspot.com/ ZsusK

    Marry me, Lukien!  I’m going to blame my error on the glasses of rum and Coke I had earlier. It’s not morning here, and my football team lost,  so I get to indulge. Thus the statement about billions and millions that will forever haunt me. (Did I bring zillions into the equation? I don’t remember?  ;)  As for hyperbole, it’s the only thing that keeps this blog and others like it running, IMO. Otherwise, who in their right mind would care about video-taped concerts from the Idol’s living room? Or performances in bars? Or tree-lightings? Or mall concerts? Or self-produced CDs? Even the top of the heap Idols like Kelly and Carrie aren’t  massive headline makers in the real world. If it were just Adam fans, I’d bow to you. But, I’ve been watching the fandoms since Season 1. And man oh man. You’d think they all performed in front of zillions.

    Phillip is booked for at least 3 “Jingle Balls” :

    Mix 104.1 “Not So Silent Night” in Boston 12/7
    WSKE “Kissmas Bash” in Buffalo on 12/10
    Star 94 “Jingle Jam” in Duluth, GA on 12/13

  • lukien

    My football team lost too. I turned off my tv when they were behind in 85 mins and just now found out they conceived another goal to lose 1-3. So yeah i understand you bro. We might be on the same team after all … About the marriage proposal, i aint that easy, how about you buy me a dinner first or me buying you … but no more rum and coke for you, what are you, Irish? Hmmm …

  • Axxxel

    So you think maybe we live in the same country……the world is small…. Cute, your cyber bromance with ZsusK….

    True that not all those billions people are viewing the MAMA’s but at least there is some buzz created on some websites and social media… and a bit more goodwill-seeds are sown for hopefully other live performances that will bring up more money than CD’s (because of the rampant piracy  :-( …

    As for the rumormill… I heard somewhere that Adam Lambert will perform in Vietnam in the beginning of January 2013…. So I still do not put much hope on a Jakarta visit by Adam. If I were Adam, I would just stay in dreamy paradise Bali and have a skype interview with Jakarta people…

  • Axxxel

    Oksana, good to see you !!

  • lukien

    What’s with you and bromance? And yes, Sam and Blaine are better as a couple, not bromance. But that’s another story.
    Meant to ask you before but the Billions got me distracted, when did Cookie come to Jakarta? I knew Lee came and saw Allison performed on the beach in Bali, but never knew Cookie was here.
    Has Adam or Kris ever come promoting to Jakarta before? I never watch local tv or pay attention to written media thats why i might miss if they came before.
    As for your wish to see Adam’s concert in Jakarta, it’s very unlikely tho. They managed to cancel Lady GaGa’s show so they probably would cancel Adam’s also. He might be better performing in Bali which is less judgemental but also less lucrative.

  • Incipit

    when did Cookie come to Jakarta? 

    He was there in July, lukien, one of three gigs in the area that month.

    Manilla, PH – 7/14 – Araneta Coliseum
    Cebu, PH – 7/15 – Waterfront Cebu City Hotel & Casino
    Jakarta, IN – 7/17 – Tennis Indoor Senayan

    This is MJsBigBlog thread about David’s visit to Jakarta which includes the link to the hilarious video of the Dasyat TV show he appeared in… He also duetted with the current 2012 winner of Indonesian Idol Regina Ivanova
    http://www.mjsbigblog.com/david-cook-shares-thoughts-on-pinoy-idols-and-arrives-in-indonesia-video.htm/comment-page-1/

    Agree with you on Adam and Jakarta. Sigh…I am not sure about Kris Allen .

    I am a total sucker for bromances… Maybe because I am not a man..To me there is just this something about male bonding with no romantic strings attached… You know, like the Kris Allen- Adam Lambert bromance in American Idol Season 8… when they were roommates for almost 3 months and ended in the top 2…. As for Sam and Blaine…yeah… let’s talk about it on the Glee thread. Always fun to discuss handsome men, whether they are alumni’s from American Idol or actors on Glee LOL.

  • Jazz_11

    LOL.. Did you know that Chinese itself has over 1 billion populations?, added to that another 12 countries that MAMA officially broadcast.

  • Jazz_11

    Aww.. lukien.. so sounds so hurts. The money for Adam doesn’t always come from selling $11 CD. Thanks God to that!  Concerts and special appearances like one he did for Mercedez Benz Shanghai and this morning at Hennessy gigs are putting money to his pocket.

  • Jazz_11

    “Check the iTunes charts -do you see any huge jumps in sales (or even any jumps) for the artists who appeared on the show for any of the countries where the show was broadcasted.”

    I don’t think the goal is to sell as many as CD this time. By performing on MAMA it opens to any possiblity and build awarness to other Asian countries that he’s not as well known as in Singapore, Malaysia, Phillipine, HK. After his performance at MAMA, he’s the highest on search engine in Korea. And looks like he’s going to Vietnam next year. That’s the goal.

  • Jazz_11

    Well guess what? Adam managed to have a concert in Malaysia, which in IMO is more strict country compare to Indonesia. And just like Malaysia, all the people who’s opposing Gaga, might not opposing for Adam.  I think Adam will have his concert in Jakarta. And just like Malaysia, there’re only small number of radical people who will stand outside his concert venue to protest.

  • lukien

    You edited your comment apparently, coz this is not what i read in my email hehehe
    Shocked that you are not a man, perhaps i took it for granted that axel is a man’s nickname. Anywho, you can be my sis instead of bro, right ha!

  • lukien

    You are tenious, arent you? Have to give you that! Well, Adam can have his concert in Jakarta, Jeddah, Jerusalem or even in Jupiter (the planet!), good for him. i dont really give a shhhh tho, i didnt even know he had a concert in Malaysia until you mentioned it. Anywho, if your mission is to thwart away all comments about Adam then congrats you have succeeded it. I declare: billions of people are adoring Adam, coz he is a GOD!!! Damn you people who dare to comment on him. He is the KING (sometimes the Queen also, you know, roleplay) coz he can perform anywhere he pleases and nobody, the mere mortals can stop him from doing what he does best on stage, which according to a blog i just read about his concert in Malaysia, including stripping, kissing and jumping on stage. I just got to laugh … Sorry!
