Can This Girl Group Win “The X Factor”? – Will Fifth Harmony win the The X Factor?

    Yeah for Chris Colfer… Really interested to see how will be the reaction of the general public when his movie will be in cinema’s early January 2013

    Kris is ending his StageIt show with a new song that he is dedicating to the people of Newtown, CT. He said that he wrote it awhile ago (so before the tragedy occurred).

    Rough recording on soundcloud of the new Kris song from Artistsupporter.

    Youtube:  New Kris Allen song dedicated to those affected by the tragedy in Connecticut from his stageit show.

    Kind of intrigued.  So I guess Naima and Kimberly Locke had some sort of holiday idol type show in Milwaukee tonight and I’m reading on twitter that DeAndre was there and he and Naima did some sort of duet.  DeAndre wasn’t a part of the scheduled show, but I think he happens to be in Milwaukee working on music.  I’d be curious to know what a Naima/DeAndre duet sounds like.

  • lovetheusa1776

    Beautiful.  We’re all so helpless in the face of such a loss.  Thanks, Kris, for doing your best to offer solace in the best way you can – through your music.

    Adam Lambert in Jakarta, ticketing website.. Wow, what a difference in price with the Bali tickets of which the cheapest is Rp 5 million something… (which also includes the galadinner in a luxurious hotel)…

  • curly_yenta

    Just to add to my own post, Ticketmaster now has Taylor Hick’s schedule at Bally’s running through Nov ’13 with some weeks in the summer and Oct clear for possible runs at other Caesar properties, i.e., Tahoe and Atlantic City. An exhausting schedule, to say the least.

    The sound quality on these videos is not good. Sounds like they pointed a video camera at their computer to record it.  

    Far superior quality can be found here:

    December 20th is/was (depending on your time zone) David Cook’s 30th Birthday, and for the last four years his fans have had a tradition of kicking off the fundraising for the annual Race for Hope in Washington, DC by making a donation that equals the birthday number, in his honor.

    Today, the National Brain Tumor Society and Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure (ABC²) received a substantial donation to David’s Team, mostly $30 at a time.

    So cool! Today is David Cook’s birthday. David’s fans are donating $30 to his Race for Hope team to celebrate…

    >> @curebraintumors: Happy B-Day @thedavidcook! You are a champion for much needed brain tumor research and so are your fans.

    At @ 6:00 pm, the total was $3500 raised – by midnight ET, it was up to $5210.
    Donations are still coming in, there will be a final tally in the morning.

    IMO, This is a seriously excellent Birthday gift – though not every thing connected to the birthday celebration was ‘serious’ – – 

    >>gengenPM ?@gengenPMReposting my birthday funneh for @thedavidcook too, excuse me heeee. 

    Also – smart@$$
    >>David Cook ?@thedavidcook
    Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes today! This one was high up on the list of best birthdays ever. I’d say easily Top 30 or so.

    I guess turning 30 isn’t the end of the world, after all. *snerk*


    At the risk of starting another “discussion” into the pros/cons of fan voted polls, I am posting this one just because I think it is pretty neat, and the Queen/Adam collaboration was awesome!
