Danny Gokey, Anoop Desai and Michael Sarver twittered pictures from this afternoon’s American Idols Live! Tour rehearsal…

According to Danny, the Idols did a full run-through this afternoon. “These Idols can sing there faces off!!! I’m enjoying this front row seat. Come check it this year!” says Danny.

Adam Lambert and Scott MacIntrye aren’t in the photos, sorry!   But, the rest of the Top 10 make an appearance…

The tour begins on July 5 in Portland, OR.

More pics after the JUMP…


 
  • Elaine

    Where’s Adam???

  • Miss Chaos

    Trying to straighten out his new release album :lol_tb:

  • elw

    Yeah, where is Adam? Maybe he’s working with Red One!

  • Jx223

    These pictures are great. The ones with Danny, the girls and Matt are funny. And I think that the group picture is sweet.

  • girlygirl

    These are cute pictures.

    I’ve noticed from going on twitter a lot that most of the pics of them at tour rehearsals don’t have either Kris or Adam in them — maybe Kris and Adam are too busy to goof off and get their pictures taken? Or maybe they haven’t been at all the rehearsals? Although I see Kris is in one of this latest bunch of photos.

    Everyone looks like a little tired…but it looks like they are having fun, which is cool

    It said in the twitter that today was the first time they have had a full runthrough of the tour show. That must have been fun!

  • JenG

    Anoop also posted a separate one of Allison

  • washpd

    Everyone was at rehearsal today because they were doing a full run-through.

  • girlygirl

    Maybe Adam’s the one taking the photos?

  • http://topidol.wordpress.com TopIdolBlog

    I had totally forgotten about yeah, what’s her name? Lil Rounds?

  • alxsavage

    It’s funny, I look at the pictures and the one thing that comes to mind is not about the ones that are there, but about the one who isn’t (and no, I’m not talking about Scott!).

  • Cheetara86

    oh Allison looks exhausted and yet so funny…guess its hard recording an album and working on the tour….guess only kris and adam know the feeling

  • auntieaimee

    Aww!

  • girlygirl

    I like the goofy pics of Allison…love her.

    Reminder:

    Please don’t fill this thread with “Where’s Adam” posts. I was afraid that would happen.

    I should have put a big red banner on the post “NO ADAM” so y’all could just skip the post.

  • twinkle

    cute!

    i bet adam and kris are getting as much time in at the studio as they can before the tour starts rolling.

  • alxsavage

    I like the goofy pics of Allisonà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬ ¦love her.

    Yeah, I love them too! She’s the one that looks funnier with the goofy attitude (although, in Megan’s case, it kind of comes natural).

    So….where’s Scott? Anyone else notice that no one ever mentions him?

  • matkojapan

    Wow!! Lil has HUGE boobs!! During the show I only noticed her huge ass!

  • karenw

    Maybe Adamà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s the one taking the photos?

    :lol_tb: yeah .. and Scott probably had another meeting to go to

    This one’s just wide open for a caption ..lol

    http://media.mjsbigblog.org/wp-content/uploads/2009/06/saturday4.jpg

  • girlygirl

    Yeah, I noticed Lil was showing off some cleavage in that one picture.

    Maybe Scott was in meetings? I’ve noticed that since the Idols have been back in L.A. for rehearsals, Scott has tweeted quite often that he’s “in meetings”…whatever that means

  • aek

    Well, Scott might not be so much into pictures, being that I suppose he can’t really see them that well.

    According to his and Matt’s (I think) Twitter, he went out to eat last night with Matt, Danny, Michael, and his brother, Todd.

    Matt said something about the four of them walking back home and singing as they walked.

    So yeah, he’s around, and I was happy to see that he was being included in the group. Because like you, I notice that usually none of the idols seem to mention him.

  • auntieaimee

    I think Lil looks absolutely gorgeous here. Well, except for that last one. :-D

  • suebrody

    My fave picture is of Anoop and Megan (Anoop had already tweeted that pic; yeah, I know, I am on Twitter WAY too much).

    I don’t like Matt’s hat. At least he and his fans will be wearing fedoras during the Tour.

    God, I wish the Tour started in Boston, b/c I am selfish that way and don’t want to wait until mid-August.

  • karenw

    Wow!! Lil has HUGE boobs!! During the show I only noticed her huge ass!

    lol .. I didn’t notice the boobs at first as I was too busy wondering if she had anything on on her lower half …. that colour shorts is very deceiving on her …lol

  • clearone

    Sigh, I still think it’s a travesty that Sarver is there instead of Alexis……

    :question_ee:

  • golcook

    TBH, this top 10 reduces to 3 people… Kris, Allison and Adam (I could add Matt, but that’s it), the other 6 are just meh (to me). Last year had more great performances comming from different people from the Top 10, not just 3. Hopefully they manage themselves to perform interesting songs that showcase their own talents (if there are any).

  • Truthiness

    I know where Adam is! “Happy Birthday to ALisan Porter! I’m seeing her and Tye Taylor perform tonight at the Kirk Douglas Theatre in Culver City at 8pm!!!!!” via his Twitter. And supposedly someone else saw him at a spa, like right before the that Tweet. So guess he’s getting ready to go enjoy Alisan’s show and bday. Hence, his not being in the pictures.

    I’m sure Kris had to go to get ready for his bday stuff.

  • LisaE

    Did they give out free Macbook Pros to the Top 10? lol. My kind of computer people.

  • jack5791

    I love Megan Joy

    I saw his twitter too, here is his friend’s website, the girl can sing! I hope this is someone who rides Adam’s coat tails with his blessing!

  • BestAI

    Anyone hear anything more about duets? I only know of Adam and Allison. I just heard in interviews that Matt and Anoop wanted to do a duet with Kris, but that supposedly is not happening. I’m guessing Kris is only doing solos? Didn’t the ones who twitter say no big group numbers? So, I take that to mean duets and trios. I think group nos are harder to choreograph, and Matt did say the group numbers didn’t sound that good together.

  • LisaE

    Matt tweeted earlier: “I was just hanging out on the corner of 1st and Amistad…” He’s been slowly revealing the songs he is going to sing on tour. So I wonder if he’s going to sing The Fray’s “You Found Me”?

    I’m not a fan of The Fray…but I have feeling that we’ll be hearing a lot of them on tour. I wouldn’t be surprised if Kris pulls one out too.

  • BestAI

    I heard Alison Porter sing, and she is the female version of Adam. I heard she was singing for Randy Jackson a couple of months ago.

    ETA: She was at studio with Adam. I wonder if they are doing a duet or she is doing backup.

  • http://www.myspace.com/celticfae1974 Skimble7

    If Apple’s not sponsoring this tour…they should be. The Idols in a commercial with “Mac” and “PC” would be the best.

    Alli looks beat. And agreed that Alexis should be there instead of Sarver. I’m hoping he decides he doesn’t like touring, gets ill or has to go home, not something super bad cuz I don’t want to mess up my karma but something so that they put Alexis Grace on the tour in his place.

  • leeaundra

    Didnà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢t the ones who twitter say no big group numbers?

    I though I read in someone’s Comcast chat that there will be one group number with everyone in it. I can’t remember whose chat it was though.

  • aek

    I donà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢t want to mess up my karma but something so that they put Alexis Grace on the tour in his place.

    They wouldn’t bring Alexis back anyway.

  • aek

    Why does Gokey look a little tooà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬ ¦close to the women?

    It looks to me more like the girls are all over Danny, rather than vice versa. And how did Matt get his butt to look like a woman’s? lol.

    And no offense to Matt fans…he’s the best looking of the bunch (Top 10) to me.

    What is hanging out of Allison’s mouth? lol.

    Everyone looks happy, and that’s cool. I will be glad when Adam starts making an appearance, too.

    The pictures are cute. That’s the good thing about Twitter, I guess.

  • Cakenbake

    Those are cute photos. I love how they interact with each other.

  • flicker

    These pics are adorable! It’s always so much fun to see the candid shots. They look like they are having fun.

  • Cakenbake

    Why does Gokey look a little tooà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬ ¦close to the women?

    Maybe Gokey is a chick magnet? Maybe Danny is an Alpha Male?

  • ppwars

    “the good thing about Twitter”

    That’s how this series of pics came about. Some photo starved Alli (no twitter) fans solicited Anoop thru twitter to snap her a time or two. Nice guy, he accommodated and the goofy pic of Alli began it all. Then the free-for-all started and went on over the course of an hour or more, resulting in the above pics for our viewing pleasure. Some how the pic of Alli went off line, and I understand that ‘noop was gently tweeted again until it was restored. REALLY a nice and patient guy!

    They must really get bored at times.

  • Cakenbake

    Why does Gokey look a little tooà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬ ¦close to the women?

    Maybe Gokey is a chick magnet? Maybe Danny is an Alpha Male?

    Danny said he was very competitive. Competitive guys are A type personalities.

  • iluvai

    Well, I think certain people look cute. But some of the pictures are strange. I’m glad they are having fun with the run through tho.

  • isisdagmar

    Those pictures are pretty entertaining–thanks for posting them, MJ. I’m curious–why have we heard more from some idols about what they will be singing on tour than others? Is it purely their choice whether or not to reveal their song selections?

  • girlygirl

    I know there are some people who post on some of the other Idol fan siteswho are a little creeped out about how Danny always seems to be hugging/grabbing Allison a little too closely in some of these pictures.

  • hollygo9

    only one Kris pic? Ain’t no sunshine when he’s gone.

  • matkojapan

    Ok. I NEVER thought I would defend Danny but here it goes!! :(

    Some people are just affectionate!! Especially people from big families like myself and Danny. it is just natural for us to be “touchy, feely”

    Say what you want about Danny (as I have) but all this talk about him being creepy because he is affectionate is just wrong.

    If the girls were uncomfortable with it, they wouldn’t reciprocate.

    Why don’t people bash Adam’s and Allison’s affection? Or Adam’s and Kris’ for that matter?

    ridiculous

  • ppwars

    Seems that FANS get creeped, mad, sick, angry, go postal, go to Funky Town over any number of things depending on the weather, time of day, position of the planets and other such critical factors.

  • GeminiDolly

    cute pictures. I like the one where Matt is showing off the bootay! Yeah! Allison is so cute.

  • aek

    Some how the pic of Alli went off line, and I understand that à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã‹noop was gently tweeted again until it was restored. REALLY a nice and patient guy!

    Yeah, who wouldn’t like NoopDawg?

    know there are some people who post on some of the other Idol fan siteswho are a little creeped out about how Danny always seems to be hugging/grabbing Allison a little too closely in some of these pictures.

    And here we go again. Seriously? Danny is barely touching Allison in these pictures.

  • matkojapan

    lol .. I didnà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢t notice the boobs at first as I was too busy wondering if she had anything on on her lower half à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬ ¦. that colour shorts is very deceiving on her à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬ ¦lol

    ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

    I agree! those shorts kind of freaked me out actually!!

    Anyway, I would totally feel safe driving in a car with Lil!

  • AC

    Am I the only one who thinks Lil needs to get rid of those wigs? hehe.. I just thought she looked a little “edgier” with her short hair.

    In his comcast interview, Matt said there was no duet with Kris but kinda hinted that there might be a trio or something else so my theory was that there was going to be some kind of mini-band? That would suck if Allison and Adam were the only duet. I want more! hehe

  • maracaibo

    I love to see Matt’s curls and bootie. That is all.
    He is so cute in that pic! I LOVE me some Matt. Can’t help it.

  • ShariG

    It doesn’t look like Kris was with the big group when these pictures were taken since Anoop has on a different shirt in the one he is in with Kris than he has on in the other picture. I imagine he is pretty busy in the studio. Thanks for posting the pictures. It is nice to see them having fun together. In past years they have had the whole group do a finale number. Maybe that is the plan again this year. If they sing in order like they have done in the past, they may have Michael, Megan, and Scott do something together and then Anoop, Matt and Lil. Maybe they’ll have Adam and Allison somewhere in the second half along with perhaps Danny and Kris’s Renegade, which I actually thought was pretty darn good. Personally, I would like to hear another Kris and Adam duet. Or maybe something with Allison, Kris, Adam, and Danny all four.

  • lizzy12345

    Thanks for the pics. They look like they are having a great time.

    I learned a while ago that Danny is a hugger from one of his hometown news articles. Seems when he went for his hometown visit and went to the radio station he was hugging everyone (guys and girls). People who have known him all his life say he hugs everyone. I always thought people were making something out of nothing when he was goofing around with Allison. Danny comes from a big family and has four sisters.

    I am still trying to figure out what everyone is singing on tour.

    Danny said he is doing 4 solos and one group number. Allison said she is doing 3 solos and her duet with Adam. Adam is doing either 4 or 5 solos and his duet with Allison and Kris is probably doing 6 solos. Matt said he is doing 3 solos and some other stuff but didn’t say what. That is all I know so far. Would expect the idols 6 thru 10 to each be doing 3 solos.

  • BestAI

    I seriously don’t think Danny and Kris will do Renegade together. Kris admited he was pretty ticked off after that number. I don’t think Adam and Allison will be doing any more duets/group nos since their numbers are accounted for (Allison said three solos and a duet). Still don’t know about Kris and Danny. They had such a bad experience–not sure if they would pair up again.

  • Cakenbake

    only one Kris pic? Ainà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢t no sunshine when heà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s gone.

    I know…sad :(

    I know there are some people who post on some of the other Idol fan siteswho are a little creeped out about how Danny always seems to be hugging/grabbing Allison a little too closely in some of these pictures.

    I don’t see any photos in this bunch? Maybe Allison’s elbow is a little too close to his you-know-what, but that is her, not him. ;^)

  • BestAI

    OK, I was looking at last year’s. Everyone sang three with 5-10 had group no. Top two sang five each, and top 10 group number. Looks like third and fourth placers got the short end.

  • girlygirl

    Sounds like the other Idols are giving Kris an early birthday celebration? At least that’s what Anoop is tweeting…

    dinner and then a little birthday celebration for the american idol.

    LOL, notice the comments…I think Kara has some competition!!!

  • BestAI

    2007, Jordin had six solos, no duets. Blake had four solos, four duets. The rest were duets and stuff — hard to follow.

  • BestAI

    Looks like Taylor also did six solos, no duets. So, more than likely Kris will have six solos, no duets with anyone. It seems standard for 3-10 do three solos with some duets.

  • AC

    so if we’re following these idol’s twitter, adam said he’s going to his friend’s concert while the rest of the idols are going to celebrate Kris’s birthday? where’s the kradam love? hehe..

  • girlygirl

    Maybe Adam is meeting up with them after his friend’s concert…or maybe he, Katy and Kris will have their own birthday celebration tomorrow? Who knows…

  • aek

    Looks like Taylor also did six solos, no duets.

    Yeah, I remember Elliott, Bucky, Ace, and Chris D. all did a number, but Taylor wasn’t included. I hated that he wasn’t a part of it. But I think they were saving the buildup of the winner coming out at the end. And Taylor came out through the stands that year….all the way down the steps, and right past all those floor seats. That’s irrelevant, but I just remembered that.

  • twinkle

    whoa nelly! maybe guera31 is kara :)

  • sabby_rina

    Aww I haven’t seen any group photos with all the top 10 together yet.

  • Kirsten

    2007, Jordin had six solos, no duets. Blake had four solos, four duets.

    I’m sorry, but I don’t think that is true. I remember Jordin having a duet because it was the only decent thing Melinda got to sing in the show. Here are the numbers those two were in:

    Group Song (including Jordin/Blake): Let’s Get it Started
    Duet (Chris R and Jordin) – What Hurts The Most
    Duet (Jordin and Melinda) – This Will Be
    Solo (Blake) – Time of the Season
    Solo (Blake) – She Will Be Loved
    Solo (Blake) – You Give Love a Bad Name
    (Intermission)

    Idol Band (including Blake) : Crazy
    Duet (Blake and Chris R): Virtual Insanity/Geek in the Pink
    Solo (Jordin) – I Who Have Nothing
    Solo (Jordin) – Heartbreaker
    Solo (Jordin) – You Were Meant for Me
    Solo (Jordin) – Broken Wing
    Solo (Jordin) – Living on a Prayer
    Solo (Jordin) – This is My now

    Blake: 3 Solos, 1 Duet, 2 Group Songs
    Jordin: 6 Solos, 2 Duets, 1 Group Song

  • koolgurl

    I know there are some people who post on some of the other Idol fan siteswho are a little creeped out about how Danny always seems to be hugging/grabbing Allison a little too closely in some of these pictures.

    Danny isn’t doing any of this in these photos. The girls are all surrounding him.

  • unique28v

    So, more than likely Kris will have six solos, no duets with anyone.

    Kris said in his comcast interview that he’s doing 5 songs.

  • aek

    Kris said in his comcast interview that heà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s doing 5 songs.

    Really? So Kris is doing 5. I know Danny said he was doing 4. And Adam? Didn’t he say 5 also? Are they giving Adam the exact same amount of songs as Kris?

    Maybe Kris is doing 5 songs plus No Boundaries….making 6. Adam is doing 5. Danny is doing 4. How many does Allison have? 3 and then the duet with Adam?

  • Kirsten

    Looks like Taylor also did six solos, no duets.

    Because I love trolling the archive, here was Taylor’s original set list:

    Jailhouse Rock (entrance from the crowd)
    Hollywood Nights
    Sweet Soul Music
    What’s Going On
    Living for the City
    Don’t Let Me Down
    Do I Make You Proud
    Encore: Taking It To the Streets
    Group Number: We Are the Champions

    So, he started with 8 solos and 1 group number. After a couple of weeks, he stopped singing “Sweet Soul Music”, “What’s Going On” and “Don’t Let me Down”. So he ended up with 5 solos. Once in a while, he would do an extra song.

  • milly93

    LOL I love the pictures.
    I hope that Adam doesn’t neglect Kris’ birthday. They’re Kradam for heaven’s sake! XD

  • unique28v

    Allison said in her interview she is doing 3 solos and a duet with Adam (Slow Ride). Danny said he is doing 4 solos with no duets, Adam said he is doing 5 solos and the duet with Allison. Kris said he is preforming 5 songs, but never mentioned duets so that is unsure. They all gave this information during their Comcast interviews.

  • Kirsten

    Adam said he is doing 5 solos and the duet with Allison. Kris said he is preforming 5 songs, but never mentioned duets so that is unsure.

    The knoll is going to have to put in another housing development if that turns out to be true.

  • aek

    Kris should get one more than Adam. Surely he will. I can only imagine the backlash if he doesn’t.

  • http://myspace.com/girlgeek mj

    Every year the set list is configured differently, so you can’t base what’s going to happen this year on previous concert set lists…

  • unique28v

    The knoll is going to have to put in another housing development if that turns out to be true.

    What is a knoll? I don’t get your post to mine.

    Kris should get one more than Adam. Surely he will. I can only imagine the backlash if he doesnà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢t.

    Backlash?? Seriously? I would hope people would go to the concert to enjoy the show/music and cheer on their favorite idol. If people have a notebook counting songs that is just a waste of precious time. lol I also hope people don’t try to count the number of people with purple shirts, blue shirts, and black nail polish wearers. lol

    But anyways, thats just my opinion. All I know, is that Kris and Adam both said 5 solos, and Adam brought up the Allison duet. We don’t know much about duets/group performances. Its been pretty hush hush with the exception of some song leaks, but we’ll know soon enough.

  • Cheetara86

    No…Adam said he has 5 songs in his set (4 solos and his duet with Allison)

  • kokko

    If I recall correctly I think Kris said he’s singing 5 songs. Well given his “non competitive” nature, the kradam love, and his admission that Adam also deserved to be the AI winner, I don’t think he would complain both he and Adam sing 5 songs.

  • unique28v

    Noà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬ ¦Adam said he has 5 songs in his set (4 solos and his duet with Allison)

    I take him saying he has 5 songs in his set to mean 5 solos. Meaning, its his part of the concert. It doesn’t make sense for Allison to be part of his set. It makes more sense for their duet to be a filler inbetween solo sets. But I dunno. Maybe you are right. If you are correct, that would mean Kris has 1 more solo than Adam so that will indeed make some of Kris’s fans happy. lol

    If I recall correctly I think Kris said heà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s singing 5 songs. Well given his à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã…“non competitiveà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬  nature, the kradam love, and his admission that Adam also deserved to be the AI winner, I donà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢t think he would complain both he and Adam sing 5 songs.

    I agree. I never met Kris, and therefore do not know him personally, but from what I gather in interviews/etc. he’s not one to sweat over one song…. The competition is over, this should be the fun part before they branch off into their individual careers.

  • twinkle

    i also recall adam saying he was singing 5 songs, not 5 solos.

  • aek

    Yeah, backlash. At least on the Internet. And really, Kris wasn’t my pick to win, but I do think the winner should get the most songs. I just do.

    As far as the counting. I am with you on that. It’s crazy, but I can guarantee that people will start recounting how when they were at their concert, they saw more people with red shirts than blue or purple. And I hardly saw any with green. Or whatever. It happens. And yeah, it’s crazy.

    Not to mention we will be hearing about which idol gets the biggest applause, the next biggest, and so on. And of course all of this is tainted with their own prejudices.

    Actually, if memory serves me correctly people only really do this with the more popular idols. So we will probably be hearing this talk with regards to the top 4 this year.

    At least that’s how it was Season 5.

  • girlygirl

    I don’t know if there would be a huge backlash, but since the winner in previous years has had the most songs, it makes sense that it would be this way again this year.

    i also recall adam saying he was singing 5 songs, not 5 solos.

    Since Adam is doing a Bowie medley it’ll probably seem like more if its 5 songs instead of 5 solos.

  • aek

    Ià ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢m a first timer going to the AI tour concert and Ià ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢m beginning to think its for crazies! Will they sell liquor? i may definitely need a beer!

    Well, I was pregnant during tour time Season 5, but it seems I remember the people beside me drinking. The idol tour was fun, though. But it was crazy.

  • Valentin432

    I take him saying he has 5 songs in his set to mean 5 solos. Meaning, its his part of the concert. It doesnà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢t make sense for Allison to be part of his set. It makes more sense for their duet to be a filler inbetween solo sets. But I dunno. Maybe you are right. If you are correct, that would mean Kris has 1 more solo than Adam so that will indeed make some of Krisà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s fans happy. lol

    I am quite sure now that he really meant 4 solos plus the duet equals five set songs. It is in his set of song he has to rehearse, it doesn’t mean they will perform it along with his solo songs.

    I think that they’re going to do something very similar to last year when Cook got 5 solos and Archie 4. I don’t know why Kris wouldn’t count No Boundaries as part of his set?

  • AC

    Yeah, Adam only said he had a 5 song set, I’m assuming that this includes the duet with Allison. Kris also said he was doing 5 songs (unless the 6th song is No Boundaries and they’re going to say that this is an “encore” like they did for previous winners) That or I’m thinking that Kris will be doing something with Matt at least in a group setting, based on Matt’s comcast interview.

    Also, I think that maybe 10% of the audience in the crowd (if even that) would know about the tour colors. I consider myself a big idol fanatic, but i’ve never really checked out who’s wearing what color. If that’s the case, Matt’s going to think he has the most fans since most people wear black or white since they are pretty common colors.

    The only thing I noticed last year about the applause was that they all got it, and both David’s got about the (and the most) except you can tell Archie’s was mainly from the girls. hehe. It probably also depends on where you’re sitting that it might seem like there’s applause more for one than the other. I agree with Aek that it’s going to be tainted by your opinions. I remember reading on the scene stuff from the finale, that some were saying Kris got more applause, while others say that Adam got the most.

  • unique28v

    I think that theyà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢re going to do something very similar to last year when Cook got 5 solos and Archie 4.

    How many solos did Siesha have last year? If Adam only has 4 solos, that means him and Danny have the same number of solos.

  • aek

    So maybe Kris is singing 5 solos. Adam only gets 4 solos, but also has the duet….for a total of 5 songs onstage. The winner still gets more songs/time, in a sense, because his set is solos.

    Danny gets 4 solos. And then Allison gets 3 solos plus her duet with Adam. So again, although in a sense, Allison is onstage for as many songs as Danny, he gets more alone singing time to reflect his higher placement.

    Does this sound right?

  • revcat

    Its a slow night in idol land.

  • Kirsten

    What is a knoll? I donà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢t get your post to mine.

    The knoll is “The Grassy Knoll” on Television Without Pity. It started back in Season 2. People speculate about producer manipulation and about which contestant the show would most like to have as a winner. I was just theorizing that if the winner were to get fewer songs than the other contestants, the people on the knoll might take that as an indication that the producers didn’t want the winner to win. People often talk about pitching a tent on the Grassy Knoll. The Grassy Knoll is of course a nod to the JFK conspiracy theories (i.e. people don’t take it all that seriously, but it’s a fun place to debate).

    If people have a notebook counting songs that is just a waste of precious time.

    LOL. Don’t knock the notebooks. There may be people with them. A lot of people report back to the blogs with recaps of the concerts. Normally, during the first concert, we get updates as to who sings what when. We should have a set list by the end of the night. It’s not too hard to count the songs after that. The sets don’t normally vary all that much (sometimes, songs are cut) so people then know what to expect when the tour comes to town. And then there are the cellcerts (people at concerts who bring their cell phones so that others can listen – hideous sound) and videos of the performances that people will post up on youtube.

    So, there probably won’t be anybody doing accounting during the tour, but there will be lots of details reported nonetheless.

  • unique28v

    It makes sense to me. lol

  • Kirsten

    How many solos did Siesha have last year?

    Syesha sang three songs: “Umbrellaà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬ , à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã…“I Aint Got Youà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬ , à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã…“Listenà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬ 
    Archie sang four songs: à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã…“Angelsà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬ , à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã…“Apologizeà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬ , à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã…“Stand By Meà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬ , à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã…“When You Say You Love Meà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬ 
    Cookie sang five songs: à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã…“Helloà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬ , à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã…“Time of My Lifeà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬ , à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã…“Donà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢t Want to Miss a Thingà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬ , à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã…“My Heroà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬ , “Billie Jean”

  • JosieX

    Danny isnà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢t doing any of this in these photos. The girls are all surrounding him.

    Yes. Danny had kind of a tough week, I suspect that it’s not a coincidence that he is the center of a big pile of love in some of these photos.

    I think Lil is beautiful, but that last photo wasn’t doing her any favors! I like people who don’t mind looking goofy though, it’s endearing.

  • stargirl

    I’m so confused.Kris gets 5 songs.Adam gets 5 songs and a duet? I love Kradam but didnt kris talk about sometimes being stubburn and humble
    at the same time? If this is really happening Kris should of spoke up
    and said he’s the winner.Looks like 19 wants to make a point with this
    tour and im not buying it.I should of never got a ticket.

  • BestAI

    Adam has four solos and a duet. Kris may have six solos.

  • Truthiness

    Oh, so much confusion about the song numbers. Golly. We do know that Danny is getting 4 songs, no duets. Allison 3 songs and a duet with Adam. We know Adam is getting 5 songs, he never specified whether that included the duet, but I assumed and think it does include the duet, so he gets 4 other as solos. Kris will get 5 songs, but no duets and thus have one more solo than Adam. Which seems fair to me. Though considering one of those songs is No Boundaries…yeah, kind of only counts as 4 songs and one…thing.

    I know there is debate about this, but yeah, this is my .02. MMV, of course.

  • twinkle

    aw! #happybdaykrisallen is trending on twitter!

  • girlygirl

    It’s nice to see that people on twitter seem to be interested enough and like his music enough to wish Kris a happy birthday.

    As for the whole who sings how many songs, I figure Kris will either have one more song — or one more solo — than Adam. I’m just hoping that both guys do more new stuff than songs we’ve already heard on Idol — it would be great if Kris could talk his way out of having to perform No Boundaries — I don’t udnerstand why he has to perform it on tour — the song will have been out for 6 weeks by the time tour starts, so it’s unlikely performing it on tour would make it jump up the charts — even if the song was any good (which it isn’t)

    aw! #happybdaykrisallen is trending on twitter!

    Yay! This is when I wish I were/was on twitter!!!! Go twitter! Go Kris!!!!

    eta: grammar

  • AC

    hehe.. I even saw Ricky Braddy tweet the #happybdaykrisallen! woohoo! one of his fellow idols just need to tell Kris!

    Also, as a non-Danny fan who would love to make funny of him at any chance (hehe), I do think it’s a little too harsh to imply that he’s doing anything wrong about the girls. i think he prob. is just affectionate and I’m sure he only loves them in a Godly manner (haha). But I doubt any of the girls have a problem with it or else they wouldn’t even be in pics together.

    I do wonder why Scott is not in any of the pictures though. I think Kris and Adam are not around as much since they’re busy writing and meeting with other people so the others are probably getting closer since they’re seeing each other more. (I’m sure Allison might be writing a song or 2, but like Jordin, I think the record company is more likely looking for songs for her so she might be more free) I know this is a big conclusion to make, but that’s what leads me to think that Danny might not sign with 19. Otherwise, he probably would be in more meetings and such right now.

    I would guess that Adam isn’t around because he has friends in L.A., and Kris isn’t around because his wife is in town. Not sure about Scott but maybe he had plans with his brother.

  • Truthiness

    I just read the Comcast chat, and Kris never mentioned how many songs he was going to sing.

    Maybe it was the Good Day LA interview, or whatever. I do remembered that I read or saw that he is getting 5 songs. I remember because I had previously heard that Adam was getting 5 and I suspected that it would probably be something that people would uh, discuss later. At least that what I remember and why. I could be wrong of course. Happens more frequently than I would like.

  • girlygirl

    Kris can easily go on twitter even though he doesn’t have an account, so I’d bet he’ll see it.

    I was thinking — if the Idols go to some cool club to celebrate Kris’ birthday, will they let Allison in? She’s the only one in the group that’s underage, right? I know clubs bend the rules for the more famous people, but I don’t know if an AI contestant would have enough cred to get into a club. It would be sad if she couldn’t celebrate with the others because of her age.

    Truthiness, the video is being done by a fan group here in the US and in the phillipines, the one in LA is a group card that fans all over the world signed with b’day wishes and messages. it had over 500 pages and signed by more than 2500 fans and that has already been delivered. the video is still being edited and may come in today.

    Awww, it’s Kris fans coming together to make his cool b-day thing. Honestly I don’t go to any Kris Allen alone sites, so I’ve only ever seen the link from ontd_ai.

    But how fun for the Kris fans that he knows about it and is going to see it.

    More importantly for me though, is that he will now be on Twitter. It’s no longer the devil! And hopefully that will mean some Twitterpics from Kris.

    I have to tell you that my first reaction to Adam’s tweet was I wonder if there is any correlation between the amount of alcohol before that tweet and the amount of alcohol with regard to the bi-curious comment!! (which I somehow imagine was a lot) LOL – just kiddin’ !!

    Maybe Adam was not aware of the nasty comments that Danny received after the cousin’s facebook incident until he got to the party – hence the delay in responding. It was the nice/right thing to do, me thinks.

  • Kirsten

    Were these all song on the show?

    Of Syesha’s three songs, only one had been done on the show previously (“Listen” and “Umbrella” were new).

    Of Archie’s four songs, three songs had been done previously on the show (à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã…“When You Say You Love Meà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬  was new), but “Apologize” was not done in competition (just the final show as a duet with Ryan Tedder).

    Of Cook’s five songs, four songs had been done previously on the show (à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã…“My Heroà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬ ) was new (although, “Time of My Life” was only sung on the results show too. Never in competition).

    So, it seems they do at least one new song, sometimes more.

    hmmmà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬ ¦. anyone else think that Kris is going to include Aerosmithà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã…“DREAM ONà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬  as part of his set list????? I think she gave us a clueà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬ ¦..

    I hope not. That song is becoming done to death on Idol and should be retired for a while . Plus, I think it would be a shade rude for the Idol Winner to do a reprise of a song that was famously biffed by another contestant on the show. Also, hard rocking doesn’t seem to be Kris’s style. Finally, Kris would have to re-arrange that puppy like crazy because he’s not hitting the “Dream On” final note/scream either.

    Actually the song is kind of cursed if you think about it. It is the song that got Michael Johns booted from the show and it probably is the reason (delayed reaction a week) that Gokey got booted too. More reason to retire it.

    Maybe it’s something from the Beatles (Beatles were famous for getting people to scream for them. Maybe “A Hard Day’s Night”? Since the movie featured all those screaming/chasing fans?). IDK. It’s just a WAG.

  • JohnM

    girlygirl: I was thinking à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬’  if the Idols go to some cool club to celebrate Krisà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢ birthday, will they let Allison in? Sheà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s the only one in the group thatà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s underage, right? I know clubs bend the rules for the more famous people, but I donà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢t know if an AI contestant would have enough cred to get into a club.

    I take my two under-age kids to clubs sometimes to see bands they/we are interested in. The clubs don’t have any problem with it because I’m accompanying them. One place puts color-coded wristbands on everyone to identify which side of 21 they’re on. My daughter and I are actually hoping that Allison will stop there on a solo tour next year!

    So, if Allison’s mom or dad accompanied her, I’d bet she wouldn’t have a problem.

    I happen to believe that they are friends. After rewatching the season and scrutinizing body language, I saw warmth and friendliness between them both. I don’t think they are as close as Adam and Kris. These two were roommates, just as Anoop and Danny were…and Anoop has stated his closeness to Danny.

    I also think Adam had been too busy to know the scope of what was going on or he would have tweeted earlier. Adam has said that he doesn’t lie. I wish people should take him at his word and accept that the two are friends.

  • jpfan

    I hope the tweets put the whole Danny/Adam thing to rest. They’re both strong personalities who tend to be honest. So I believe them and if they’re lying, well obivously they want to end the negativity. So I say end it.

    The tour should be a fun time and is usually a real family event. It’s the last hurrah for most of them so I say let them enjoy it. And judging by the pictures, Danny seems to be friends with most of them. And I doubt the girls would be all over him if he was a predator/creep. It doesn’t work that way.

  • girlygirl

    Adam has stated before that he and Danny respect each other and get along fine. They may not be the closest two people in this bunch of Idols, but that’s ok.

    According to Matt’s tweet, Alex showed up and sang at Kris’ bday party!

    #The party went well. Good to see everyone. Even @AlexWTrugs showed up and sang heartless on the guitar. haha funny guy. good hangin’ again# about 6 hours ago from web

  • jpfan

    I wish Alexis was there instead of Sarver. But if the bad blood is between Matt and Adam would it mean that Matt shouldn’t be there? I’m guessing past tours included people who didn’t like each other for various reasons. They all survived somehow.

    Not sure if I care for Alex. He was the one who made the disparaging twitter remarks about Adam.

  • lizzy12345

    I hope these pictures and the tweets from Danny and Adam will put this Adam/Danny drama to rest. In my opinion, many of Danny’s detractors have tried to paint him as someone he is not. You can tell by the pictures and by the tweets from Matt, Anoop and others that Danny gets along very well with all the Idols. I haven’t seen or heard of much interaction with Adam and Kris in the group but that could be because they are busy getting things started on their albums and don’t have as much free time.

    I for one am very excited for the tour. It should be a great show. I would love for the fans to just enjoy the ride along with the Idols and quit the nastiness but knowing Idol fans that will never happen.

    So, if Allisonà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s mom or dad accompanied her, Ià ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢d bet she wouldnà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢t have a problem.

    Pure speculation on my part…but since it seems like the Idols are all staying at the same place, (hotel, extended stay suites) and it was pretty late when they went out…I would say Allison is probably being chaperoned by her idol friends, not her parents.

    This is a pretty mature young lady that seems to have parents that realize that their place is in the “background” of her life. Besides, Lil and Megan are there (both who are parents) as well as all her “very protective older brothers”. And I bet that the idol group has some staffers that hang out with them, too.

    Couple of notes: Based on Matt’s new haircut pic, it looks like he has had the opportunity to take care of his mole. Probably why he has been wearing a hat so much…to cover the band-aid while it was healing.

    It looks like all of the idols are real close and they seem to be a huggy group. Good for them!

    Scott is 24 going on 50. I just think his personality just doesn’t lend itself to a lot of group interaction. Speaking of Scott, has anyone heard if his little sister has had her surgery yet. I do hope everything is going good for her.

    I continually get a good laugh when fan groups are worrying themselves about songs and how many at the tour concert. Next thing you know there will be posts (after the youtube tour videos are released) arguing because one idol got to sing for 30 seconds longer than another even if they had equal songs. So many fans seem to take this kind of stuff so personally and they interject their own feelings onto the idols. Me…I’m just going to enjoy what I get since I feel like the “competition” is over and my three favs all got contracts which is the purpose of idol anyway.

    I think Adamà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s tweet to lay off the gossip is only to do the right thing. I do not believe that the two are good friends. I think they have a good working relationship, and thatà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s all.

    Is it really necessary to analyze exactly how “good” their friendship is? It seems such a pointless exercise to dwell on the issue. I think this only leads to fan wars that end up hurting one’s favourite Idol.

    Tess, I am an avid reader of this site, but I don’t comment much. I always find the posts amusing and love all the grassy knoll theories. But you Tess, I always enjoy because you are centered, insighful, place everything in perspective and bring the other posters back to center. Thanx for making my last 3 months enjoyable. I went to Wales for 10 days to visit a friend and was able to use her laptop and tune in. She loves Adam too.

    But an interesting side note, all of her family is extensive, love Adam, but found Kris to be the better musician – their all musical. My last day we spent in London and went to see Priscilla Queen of the Desert on stage. It made my heart warm because it is one of my favorite movies adapted for the stage. What touched my heart was the audience – all ages getting into it from 10 to 80 years of age. Straight men were wearing pink and purple boas and had no qualms about their masculinity. The actors received a standing ovation. Fabulous show. But also Soho is very eclectic. I got to see first hand the lack of homphobia and how everybody just fit in- it was fabulous. Adam even said how much he enjoys Europe.

    Sorry off topic but I couldn’t resist.

    Very true; but a bar/club couldn’t care less about that when it comes to letting a minor in. As for the other kinds of potential chaperones you mentioned, I doubt that a club would accept a gang of older friends (i.e. the Idols) as chaperones, but I wouldn’t be surprised if a bodyguard/assistant would suffice. I also wouldn’t be surprised if some places would insist on a parent.

    Besides, Lil and Megan are there (both who are parents)

    Would that be the same Megan that Allison was “parenting” when Megan was drunk off her ass a couple of weeks ago? :biggrin_wp:

    Hey “BestAI 11:26″ what twitters are you taling about and can someone enlighten me on who “Alex” is? (Not Alexis….Alex)

  • http://www.last.fm/user/RemusL/ RemusL

    Alex is Alex Wagner-Trugman who was in the Top 36, group 3.

    He’s a pretty funny guy. His Twitter page is here.

    I’m a little late to the party, but just had to say those pics are a lot of fun to watch! Too bad no Adam in them, but Matt, Allison, Lil, Anoop, Danny, and Megan all look like they’re having a blast, which is great :-)

    Adam must be a better man than most if he can forgive Gokey and his family for the terrible things they posted on Facebook and also Twittered. I don’t know either one and probably never will, but I was heartbroken for Adam as I would be for my own son if someone did that to him.
