Kelly Clarkson Responds To The Bill Clinton Photobomb – The Internet has had a lot of fun with the shot, but what does Kelly herself think about the moment of admiration? “I loved it,” Kelly said, laughing, during an interview with Paul Koffy of BUZ’N@102.9 in Minneapolis. She went on to explain how, later that day, she was already planning her revenge of sorts. “We saw him [Clinton] at the Washington White House reception thing afterwards,” she explained. “And Brandon and I were dying to get a picture of me standing two people behind him, checking him out from close up. We were going to put them both side by side and tweet them.” – Read more at CBSLocal

THE GOOD GUY: Seven years after ‘American Idol,’ Bucky Covington talks about finding his way in country music – “Everything was on the line for me. I left the family business,” he said. “By the time you make that show, and the fact that you have to go back into the body shop, where the whole entire town KNOWS you were on that show … to have to go back with your head held down was not an option.” He was a person watched by millions each week, not someone who should be painting cars. “Maybe not everyone was like I was. I wanted (to win) so bad. NO was not even an option,” he said. – Read more at Wiscnews

Everybody Say Love! RuPaul Seeks New Gal Pal Online – Covergirls, it is time for you to put the bass in your walk and put on your most sickening date-night outfit: Dance music diva/reality superstar RuPaul (yes, that RuPaul) is looking for a new girlfriend, and he’s taken his quest for lady love online. Apparently Ru finds it a drag to watch “RuPaul’s Drag Race” (Season 5 of which premieres on Logo this Monday) at home alone, while the Pit Crew is presumably off doing the bar scene. So he is desperately seeking a Susan, or a gal pal by any other name, to accompany him on actual Monday night dates. Ru has even joined personals sites like Plenty Of Fish, Zoosk, Alikewise, and BlackSingles.com to help him find that one special girl (or two, or three) that will make him want to say, “Shante, you stay!” forever–or at least for as long as Season 5 of “Drag Race” in still on the air. – Read more at Yahoo.com

    I notice that in the college gigs that Phillip is playing right now the songs are featuring much more music than on the cd. He’s got a really talented band behind him, and it seems to be well received. He also seems to think of himself as more a musician than singer so touring should be fun for him.

    Phillip’s been getting great responses on the college tours and he seems to be having a blast. It’s been crazy following the on-line reactions especially from guys who are stoked to meet him. Again, Phillip’s perception has always been very different outside the AI bubble. This is something he told his management he wanted to do – play to audiences his own age (and hopefully grow that fan base). It sounds like that’s what he will be mostly doing for the next few mos aside from the MB20 shows.

    I notice that in the college gigs that Phillip is playing right now the
    songs are featuring much more music than on the cd. He’s got a really
    talented band behind him, and it seems to be well received. He also
    seems to think of himself as more a musician than singer so touring
    should be fun for him.

    I am with you on the talented band/a lot of instrumentation/good reception observations.
    But I keep reading on idol-related blogs this singer vs. musician juxtaposition and I always feel surprised by it, because it is not a vise versa thing.
    Listen to pretty much every old school rock, soul, blues, jazz, folk et?. act live concert performances – left and right they are longer than recorded versions of the song because of instrumentation break-down in the middle or towards the end of the song usually with a lot of improvisation.
    So, it might be somewhat unusual approach for the idol alumni, but it is absolutely natural for a rock act. Well, everything that Phillip is doing in terms of arrangement is. Including classic rock approach of using the singer’s voice as one of the instruments, and dividing the main theme of the song between instruments and the voice, that got him so much “destroyed the melody again!” flack during idol run.

    Anyway, I have listened to a bunch of youtube videos and (on top of already liking the CD) that live instrumental breakdowns had me absolutely floored. Could not help myself, had to dance.
    I am not a big concert goer, but I would love-love-love to experience that kind of storm of energy first hand if only I did not have to cross an ocean to do so. LOL
    Still genially surprised to find someone whose musical instincts I dig so much through a reality competition, but there you go…
    And to think that dude has been plying guitar for what? About 3 years? And has came so far in his technic and delivery already,
    Gives me incentive to stick around as a fan, ’cause there might be a lot more of interesting things to come.

    Phillip is having a blast, you can just feel it watching him perform live
    that jazzy intro version of Home was cool, i love jazz anyway
    The crowd response to Phillip’s music is great too, they love him and that’s what matters to him

  • tripp_ncwy

    I think a lot of the fans both old & new are really liking the White-Guy-Without-Guitar Kris on this tour.  He could have easily just sat on a stool and sang but instead chose to put on a show with his hip swinging, little dances, his vocals & interaction with the crowd. Way to turn lemons into lemonade Kristopher.

  • girlygirltoo

    If you are a musician, is there anything more fun than doing a live concert — whether in front of 10 people or 10,000? If I were a performer, I think that would be my favorite thing.

  • girlygirltoo

    I don’t think doing longer versions of songs live is unusual when it comes to  artists in general or ex-Idols specifically. Pretty much every Idol I’ve seen in concert, from Kris to David C to Adam to Kelly, does extended versions of at least a few songs in their sets. And at least at the shows I’ve been to, it’s pretty rare to get an exact duplicate of the recorded version of any song when you go to see these artists live. Changing the songs up and doing extended versions allow the band members a chance to really shine, and if there’s one thing you want to do as a solo performer or frontman/woman, it’s trying to keep your fellow bandmates happy by giving them a chance to display their talents, right?  It also helps to keep the songs fresh. I’m sure Phillip would get bored pretty quick if he had to perform “Home” the exact same way every time he performed it, for example. :)

    Phillip and his band are already sounding very tight. Happy for him that his tour is off to a good start and that the crowds are liking his music! 

  • jpfan2

    Thanks for the links of the P2 college shows. Judging purely by the tweets from his gigs  I’d say a fairly significant % of his fans are 20 something guys.

    Ok, that extended intro to ‘Home’ is special…thanks for the link. Is it only in audio? I did see a TV report from that area that said he did two shows that both sold out in minutes!

  • Incipit

    Thanks for the ghetto capture, wordnerdarchie.  Looks like Starworld Asia put that together from the videos and Q&A’s DC did on the last trip that promoted Idol broadcasts on their station.

    I liked that they highlighted “Paper Heart” – would have made a good single, IMO.

  • Anny_nanny

    I give what I found. Of course I have no chance to get to his concert, I
    will hope that he will arrive in Europe at least – that’s all I can
    dream.

  • Incipit

    What you said, girlygirltoo. It’s not unusual at all. I Love to listen to/collect the extended versions, and the rearrangements, the different concert versions of the studio tracks, quite a few artists I enjoy do that regularly….you listed many of them. It’s the closest I’ll ever get to the sound I prefer from Casey James, too…when he starts jamming in concert.

     I like when the performers have a varied set list also, with new covers – keeps it fresh – - that also could get boring for the band, if they did the same songs in the same order and the same way, every night.

  • Anny_nanny

    I do not think that talking about slightly changed the song. Jam is distinguished group of the 70s-80s, when the songs is not just changes or sounds a bit longer. But they is performers of the “old school”.
    It is something that I loved and appreciated in Elise and P2 – they were born for music which came before they, they feel it. But this is a double-edged sword – it’s impossible to cut to two minutes song which was early cut from the full audio of up to four minutes. Someone here said “I remember the songs that have the lyrics, but not the text, and consisted of three verses and a beautiful chorus after each verse of”.

  • Lobilobi

    He said in his FOX29 interview that he’ll go oversea after his tour with Matchbox 20, so i suppose it’s Europe (France : Home has airplay there already, UK…)
    i hope he comes where you live though

  • Anny_nanny

    Casey James as a musician, a wonderful musician. To change the songs every time you need to be able to improvise – it is the experience of and respect for the musicians on stage, I agree.
    Phillip complained already during the tour that it’s difficult every evening repeat set from note to note and not even be able to change the order of songs. But he found a way out – he changed the ending of N&S. And he began to improvise with “Home” during sound checks back in the fall.

    to Lobilobi:
    It’s a question of time and money. I do not want to think.

  • asifclueless

    Love Megan Miller’s spirit who ” … went straight to the surgeon after her audition … and had to spend a week in the hospital to recover …”

    I fell in love with her when I first saw her on her clutches and she didn’t let that accident to dampen her singing; and she didn’t make it for an excuse or to get sympathy.  (Sorry! my English. Hope you all understand what I’m saying.)  I really admire her. 

    She did great.  Hope she will go so far.

      

  • girlygirltoo

    I think you might have misinterpreted my comment? As I said, pretty much every Idol I’ve seen in concert has the ability to totally change up a song, to improvise on the fly and to jam out with their band members. It isn’t just making songs longer, but totally changing them up from what you hear on the record or on the radio. 

    To be honest, I think it would be very difficult to make a decent living as a touring musician if you cannot do these things, because I doubt anyone wants to hear the same exact set night after night, with the songs done exactly the same way. Doesn’t really matter if you play an instrument or not. For example, I doubt someone like Rihanna performs her concert set exactly the same way night after night. She would get bored pretty quick if she did that — and so would her audience.

  • LongKissGoodnight

     You are correct.
    Apparently Phillip started playing at 14, and 3 years ago (2009) was when he formed the Phillip Phillips Band with his 2 brothers-in-law, and started performing at local venues.
    My bad.
    In this case my utter disinterest in favorite artists personal life worked against me. LOL

    Yes, I know that Errol Cooney is talented and thought out guitarist. That was kind of part of my thinking behind the “talented band” comment.

  • Anny_nanny

    I agree. First of all it is disrespectful to the audience to hear the album I buy a cd, not a ticket to a concert.

    to LongKissGoodnight:
    Phillip sings in the course of three years, as Hollie, if I am not mistaken – they have the Top-10 of the smallest vocal experience and practice of performance (I don’t know anything about Jeremy and Shannon). The Phillip has more practical experience, as though he would performance at the end of school. His second performance in life before the public was at the Graduation of the school – the video is on the Internet, as the first performance in the local church. It was amusing to watch as the man first time singing in front of an audience.

    By the way Hollie thanked AI for the experience received on the show and the tour in her interview. I hope the girl did not leave the dream of a professional career, she has a beautiful voice and the ability to learn. Must admit I was unfair to her during the show, I built my attitude as to Jessica, mistakenly believing that Hollie spent his childhood to prepare for singing career too. When schoolgirl sings similarly it is difficult to believe that she is a beginner. But I put the blame on stereotypes and what my friends assured me that that in the US are very good practical school of singing. And then I read that the lessons in the school was reduced because of insufficient funding.

    I agree. First of all it is disrespectful to the audience to hear the album I buy a cd, not a ticket to a concert.

    It’s not disrespectful at all. It all depends on what type of concert you go to. If it is someone like Madonna or Rihanna, it is a highly choreographed show. They are going to stick to the script. Every show is basically the same and most of the songs will sound close to what they sounded like on the CD.

    The
    majority of concert goers attend one show of a current tour. The show is brand
    new to them and they enjoy the overall show, including the singing, dancing,
    lights, staging and special effects. The creative interpretation comes from
    these aspects, not in jam sessions with the band. Those attending these types
    of concerts enjoy them just as much as someone who goes to a concert that
    centers around jam sessions with aband.

    One type
    of concert is not better, or more respectful to the audience, than the other.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/PVEFG2TOUIXSROKUSO2O2DOWWE Taylor

    For example, I doubt someone like Rihanna performs her concert set exactly the same way night after night. She would get bored pretty quick if she did that — and so would her audience.

    Rihanna basically does do her same set night after night. The audience doesn’t get bored, because for the majority of them, it is their only concert they will see on the current tour. The show is brand new to them.

    It doesn’t matter if Rihanna gets bored or not. She is making millions of dollars, she can suck it up and deal with the boredom! lol

    Think about how theatre actors feel, who are doing the EXACT same show eight times a week on Broadway. Their job is to put on a believable show and the audience enjoys that show, done in the exact same way, night after night.

  • girlygirltoo

    but the difference is that in the theatre, you are following a script. If you go off script, you can screw up the whole production (unless you are doing some sort of improv theatre, of course)

    Musicians don’t have to follow a script. They have way more freedom to improvise. Because her shows depend on choreography, someone like Rihanna may stick more closely to the same performance than someone who doesn’t have dancers and a bunch of choreography to worry about, but I would bet these performers still finds ways to change things up — even if it is something as simple as changing up the set list — to try and keep themselves from getting bored, and to keep the performance fresh. :)

    Lauren Alaina is on her way to South Korea right now in her role as UNIFY Ambassador for the World Special Olympics games.  

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/PVEFG2TOUIXSROKUSO2O2DOWWE Taylor

    That’s why I said think about how theatre actors feel, meaning they have to stick to the exact same words, actions and dance steps every night, so they have to find ways to fight boredom and continue to present the best show possible night after night.

    I attended a student workshop in NYC years ago, where several well known Broadway actors spoke and answered questions from the students. One of the students asked a well known actor in Wicked what kept him from getting bored night after night, seven to eight shows a week. The actor replied that he kept one thing in mind at all times: Every show has someone in the audience who is seeing their very first Broadway show and someone who is seeing their last show on Broadway.

  • Valarie

    Remember the tape of what the sound engineer on a Brittny tour hears through her mic? Pop stars are ‘singing’ to backing tracks, and their mics are turned down so low , that the audience only hears the perfect vocal from the track. Am I right, Beyonce, SSB?

    There are artists who never use a track, and Idols Kelly and Kris Allen come immediately to mind.

  • MellyPer1692

    I’ve heard Beyonce sing live and she is amazing, SSB from last weekend notwithstanding. I’m not sure Kelly has never used backing tracks. I remember earlier in her career, during the SUBG era, there were times she was singing to a track, her live vocals were upfront, but still a track.

    As an avid Adam Lambert fan, I see his numorous interviews in which he was upbeat in answering the questions…I wonder whether he thinks the same way every time he has to answer the same questions for the xth time ( borrowing from your post) :” every interview has someone in the audience who is listening/watching for the first time and someone who is listening/watching for the last time…

    Just back from Allison’s show at The Troubadour. She did a short set with her new band, Hal Circus. They weren’t letting us take video, so unless someone sneaked vid, probably won’t get to see this stuff. The place was packed (the headliner was a funk/r&b musician who used to play in the Idol band) and the crowd seemed to enjoy her set. She sounded and looked great — was dressed in a long green dress & her hair’s red again. 

    I don’t know what any of the songs were called (she didn’t say), but I liked them, especially the final one of her set, which was a piano driven ballad.

    Yay for video and mp3 of Kris doing JT’s ‘Cry Me A River’. Beautiful, sexy, awesome.

    There were quite a few video interviews with Kris posted yesterday. He also did an interview with the AR Fox affiliate before the Rev Room show.

     In one of them when talking about his wrist he said the Doctor said it will never come back 100%. He said he’s stubborn and he will make it be 100%. The more he talks, the more info he reveals: four bones broken, torn ligaments and muscles cut. Kris is a trooper and an inspiration.

  • durbesque

    Kris is blossoming without the guitar.  He’s beginning to look like a star.

  • justmefornow

    Good detective work! I think you’re right. He’s been re-tweeting James since NYC. 
    I’ve been checking out Beta Music and they have somewhat of a punk sound. Too light for my taste, but he sounds pretty good on bass. I wonder if we’ll hear any word on another guitarist soon as well?

  • nncw

    Kris singing Cry Me a River is excellent – loved it!!! What a great range – these covers that he gets the day before and arranges with his band really  show off his talent. I often wonder if American Idol’s rigorous schedule prepared the participants to think fast on their feet. 

  • vtu

    Yeah, who would have thought Kris had that much room at the bottom of his range?  That was awesome!  :)  I also thought this was the best, most controlled use of falsetto I’ve heard from Kris.

  • DragonFly

    His Twitter fans seem to enjoy the tease…. & he loves to oblige them.  Think you’re both probably correct (the possible identity of the bassist AND new v-i-d-e-o prospect).  Couldn’t be happier at the news of another person being added to the band–always a little easier to sell it, imo anyway.   Again, think it will leave much more freedom for him to improvise at concerts, “both singing & entertaining”.  Hope an official announcement is soon. 

    Not seeing a hint of a new guitarist also?  ~~But Ya nvr know~~

    I believe he will get it back to 100%, Miz, it’s that important to him. There’s no way he won’t work til he is happy with the results, and able to play the way he wants to. IMO.

    Lefty Neal Tiemann, DC’s friend and former lead guitarist, punched out a brick wall at 18, and almost put paid to his career. The story involves a romantic triangle and a burned up Firebird, but it resulted in three very shattered bones and a bad prognosis. Neal opted for a screw in his left hand instead of a procedure that might have fixed his hand better, but also had the risk of making him unable to play. And anyone who has ever heard him shred knows how that turned out.

    What they may not know is, Tiemann can play the guitar and burn down the stage, but arthritis-like pains plague him every morning and every night.

    I think Kris will also do whatever he needs to do, so he can play at the level he wants to – he’s a very determined guy. IMO.

    I probably could have lived without seeing the Adam Lambert birthday pic, though where can I get a pair of those union jack crotch pants? lol

    GREAT CAUSE!!!!

    I don’t think you will find those at Walmart.

  • bridgette12

    Totally agree, it’s a great cause and so happy to see Adam is lending his support.

    Surgeons who perform miracles don’t believe that the body can recover better and faster if given the necessary tools. 

    In Kris’ case, the 60 Essential Minerals, plus specific nutrients for bones, cartiledge, ligaments, tendons, etc., would give his body the raw materials it needs to perform miracles of it’s own.

    Does David Arquette run a gay bar? OR is a regular club where he does a lap dance for special pals?

  • girlygirltoo

    It was rock. Not poppy at all.

    Was it announced that Blake would be the lead guitarist or is he still considered rhythm? I would like to see a good replacement for Dylan and the presence of a strong lead guitarist is a strong indicator to me of the direction of his new music. 

    Without one, I’m going to take a wild guess and say that the sound will be more punk rock than a classic hard rock sound with strong guitar solos.

    Damn A., you are good!! lol

    Two days after his 31st birthday, Adam will perform at We Are Family Foundation with Nile Rogers, Sam Sparrow and others. I guess Anderson Cooper will be there as well.

    I love Anderson and I love Adam. Before Sauli, I wished they would be a couple. I know!! It’s not gonna happen. Back then when Adam was lonely, I wished somebody matured to take care of him and make him happy.

    But now Sauli is the best person who makes Adam happy. And I’m very happy to see them together. Can’t help to giggle when I see Adam and Sauli together.
    Both of them are gorgeous.

    January 31, 2013: Adam receives Unity Award and performs at We Are Family Foundation 2012 Celebration Gala 2.0 New York City. More info:

    As expected, Adam’s fans have heeded the call…with the usual result.

    Our site was down momentarily…due to crazy traffic…but we are up an running now! http://bit.ly/Xdwz5

    So glad a tweet from Sam Sparro inviting Nile Rodgers to play on “Shady” has ultimately resulted in such a lovely professional and personal relationship between Nile and Adam.

    Durbesque, I wasn’t speaking of miracles, I have no idea where that came from.

    I’m talking about normal human beings who are willing to work very hard at rehabilitation to get results, which doesn’t happen overnight…and sometimes have a price to pay in constant low level pain…and the determination that leads them to do it. 

    Doctor’s diagnoses are not carved in stone, as their profession is also an art as well as a science  - “The ‘Practice’ of Medicine – if a patient exceeds their expectations, it is hardly a miracle, IMO.

    I wish Kris good fortune with his rehabilitation and healing, when the brace is finally removed…and I acknowledge his determination to regain as much flexibility as possible.

    This seems silly but I actually got goosebumps reading that actor’s reply. He’s so right and what a great attitude!

    With all the flailings, praises and respect Adam has gotten from these music ‘legends’ (Queen, Meatloaf, Cindy, Nile, Elton John) It sometimes makes me think that he was born in different generation because talent and vocal ability were much appreciated in those time than today. And with his talent Adam could be one of these legends by now…

    LOL *Don’t mind me, I’ve been overly caffeinated today*

    Happy 31st Birthday Adam Lambert from Persian(Iranian) glamberts :)

  • irockhard

    I dunno he hasn’t said anything about guitarists yet. Actually I wouldn’t mind a punk direction if it’s more hardcore punk, that sh!t is awesome!

  • durbesque

    I used the wrong word.  I’m sorry.  It may have prevented you from understanding my meaning. 

    Determination is a wonderful trait and Kris has it, but damaged tissue needs extra nutrients to repair completely.  Otherwise, he might have pain and even need pain killers for the rest of his life.  He probably has no idea that it can be avoided.  There’s nothing I can do about it.

    Not a gay club, it’s billed as a hotspot for Entertainment/Celebrity types. Rat Pack inspired club:

    “Re James band: Was it announced that Blake would be the lead guitarist or is he still considered rhythm?”
     
    I think we really don’t know anything official except that Blake is in the band.  We are going to be told ”soon” who the bassist is.  Fans are just doing some speculating here re. someone James has had Twitr exchanges with recently.

    Not special pals either.

    There are people out there who know how to party and aren’t inhibited by old-fashioned stereotypes and social expectations.
