• Wow! Allison’s changed… I like the look!

  • pj

    Allison has blossomed into a lovely lady. Heart her.

    ETA: Did Cookie get hair implants? Not mad at him, except in the one pic he looks like a serial killer.

  • gigglesmo3

    Allison looks GORGEOUS!
    Kris looks really good, good thing he got a haircut.
    Cook looks fantastic, I see he is wearing his favorite (only?) pants again. I guess now that his hair has improved 100%, he has to give us something to snark about :)
    Didi looks lovely.
    Why doesn’t Blake ever dress up for Red Carpet events?

  • J9BT

    What the hell is Didi wearing???

  • Keel

    What the hell is Didi wearing???

    *takes out magnifying glass* In olden times (’70s), I believe those were referred to as caftans. Sightings have been so rare however that people are not sure. Anthropologists have been called to the scene to investigate.

    ETA: Though I have to admit that I recently saw a pic of Jared Leto wearing a man caftan AND saw an article about caftans being big for resort wear this spring, so the horrors that are caftans may indeed be back.

  • Fullmoon

    Allison looks hot. I love the dark hair on her.

  • unidentified

    Love all the pictures. Cookie & Allison all dressed up. Kris saying, a tie is dressed up enough. Blake wearing street clothes. Didi wearing the curtains, like in Gone With The Wind. All looked shiny and pretty.

    Allison looks incredible, she’s 19 now. I’m not a fan of tattoos either but she pulls it off. I’m loving the black, short hair. She looks like a completely different person.

  • spanishfan

    Considering Cook is headlining, I would hope he is dressed up.

    also, thanks for waking up my senses before my morning coffee. yum!

    I meant with the awesome pics of David Cook. See? that’s what happens when your “senses” are awake before your brain is. ;)

  • sr4mjc

    Allison looks amaaaaazing! Nice suit jacket and vest Cookie. Blake, you could have looked like you gave a shit. Didi, that dress does nothing for you. I hate that Blockbuster blue color of Kris’s shirt, but at least it fits well and nice jeans, hate the shoes. Kris should wear boots.

  • pattycake

    Wow, Didi’s dress just proves you don’t buy a dress just because it is clearance priced. Fit is everything.
    Cookie looks good, snappy pants work on every occasion.

  • tripp_ncwy

    Ah, Awards dinners, and long winded speechifying. That’s a good three songs to chose, if the 4th song was from DCTR, that’s the one to cut – if it was TMAIA, then TMO was already played – and that’s also a song with a very different approach starting from the acapella beginning.

    Nice showcase to play for the music distributors!

    Wonder who accepted the Big Award for Idol?

  • PRMari

    Yeah, i’ve always known that allison iraheta either did have or would have a tattoo. :D she looks great!

    She has two actually haha…the other one is a tiny one on her right forearm. She looks great.

    tripp_ncwy Thank you much for the ustream link – I see there are three videos – I’m off to fall down that Rabbit Hole!

    *snerk* @Myself.

  • ross

    I hate that Blockbuster blue color of Kris’s shi(r)t

    Don’t they wear dark blue polo shirts (and khakis) at Blockbuster? Guess I don’t see what that has to do with Kris’s shirt.

  • Incipit

    OK – Major Reverb on the vids – but the acapella parts of the incomplete TLG and all of TMO come through very well…so does the unmistakable PH guitar riff in the background, and the vocals at the end of PH.

    The stage set up and lighting look good, and the Boyz all seem to be dressed up spiffy and color kinda co-ordinated in grey/blues, if that’s a point of interest. *wink* Nice reaction to PH, too.

    Thanks again!

    A LOT of great Getty Images from last night – and – bonus – there are Black Carpet images there too!

    What what we get David Cook vids. I just expected to get the set list love my David Cook surprise filled morning. :) You know if you just find out your 4 set song set shrunk to 3 those are the best one’s to sing. Your new single The Last Goodbye, totally rocking songs w/ Paper Heart and Time March on couldn’t go wrong w/ them. I just know the 4th song woulda been Take Me As I Am woulda loved hearing that again but that’s just the greediness talking. :)

  • Listening

    Oh and I love altavozdistro the person who recorded the vids. I had no idea there was even a live stream. I woulda been all over that instead of stalking twitter, Oh well.

    With Paper Heart the big wigs clapping was so cute and adorable. I think they were a little rusty. I saw some guy taking I picture of David and I was like look at David bring big wig guys to his side. Yep his energy is truly magnetic.

  • Incipit

    Listening, I Flove his sheer energy on the stage too – and it looks like he and all the Idols and the band enjoyed last night. Heh. The audience too.

    This picture of Mischief I found untagged cracked me up!

  • Listening

    Incipit, there are some great pics floating around I LOVE adorable David.

    Oh and about David performing I was like is the audience ready for this can they handle full package hard rocking David. Oh well ready or not here he comes. :)

    ETA Ummm looking over my post it’s kind of full of double entendres.

  • girlygirl

    I heard that all the Idols that were there were introduced before they handed out the award for the show.

    My twitter feed last night was hysterical — people were so happy that Kris got a haircut :) I don’t quite get the obsession with his hair, but there ya go…

    All the Idols looked good last night

    Also, does anyone know what’s going on today? Blake tweeted Alli, Didi and Kris saying he’d see them “tomorrow” — meaning Friday

  • Sassycatz
  • FaithfulFan

    Wow Allison looks great. The dark hair really brings out her pretty dark eyes. Kris and Cook, as always, are looking mighty fine.

  • TwigLA

    They all look great.

    Kris looks so young with the new haircut. I like it a little longer, but hair grows. This reminds me of last year when the whole KAB got cuts before tour.

    I love Allie with the short dark hair. Looks very sophisticated. Love her dress too. Even with those high high heels she’s still shorter than Kris and Blake. :)

    That’s an unfortunate choice of dress for Didi. But she is a free spirit, so it suits her personality.

  • Ratna12

    girlygirl:,My twitter feed last night was hysterical — people were so happy that Kris got a haircut I don’t quite get the obsession with his hair, but there ya go…

    I was reading it and they are funny. it is so easy to please Kris fans. All the idols looked great, especially Kris. :D

  • Curlin

    Everyone looks really good, especially Cook. Now off to watch his videos. :)

  • lifeisgood

    Kris, Allison, and Cook looked great! I would have loved for more idols to have been there too.

  • girlygirl

    There is evidently a big photoshoot for The Hollywood Reporter today — an American Idol 10th anniversary shoot. Will be interesting to see how many former Idols show up for this.

  • standtotheright

    Aww, I kinda liked Benami’s shiny caftan. Much better than Lewis’ 80s-roll jeans. But they still all looked cute. Iraheta looks amazing.

    I’m glad the attendees got into the set (or so it seems). Stock those records, people!

  • jing_ftw

    That is a nice shower curtain, Didi.

  • BM2587

    K I’m gonna be honest here and ask When the hell did Allison age 10 years? She looks horrible with that Blah haircut and color

  • PRMari

    Haha…yes, she looks older because she IS older now. Maybe she looks 10 years older because before she looked too young. I think she looks great with the short hair, it’s different and perhaps that’s what she wanted, to look older and different.

  • sr4mjc

    Don’t they wear dark blue polo shirts (and khakis) at Blockbuster? Guess I don’t see what that has to do with Kris’s shirt.

    Oops on the spelling (fixed it), LOL. I worked at Blockbuster in 1989,we had to wear that color long sleeve button down shirt and khakis. It reminds me of it.

  • Mtlfan

    good interview! a little sitar on your album David? cool :)

    lol at Kris little dance in the background before the photo with Allison, Didi and Blake

  • linsmile

    OK – watched that interview twice. First to hear David’s interview. (good interview) And then to watch Kris, Allison, Didi and Blake on the red carpet. (apparently I find that interesting as well…)

  • desiree_chick

    I’ll be honest, I payed more attention to Kris and Allison in the back taking pics than David in this interview. Sorry, I like Cookie, but I love my dear underdogs Kris and Allison more :)

  • cheese

    I think the guy who did this interview tweeted that he interviewed Kris, too.

    Where are these patient Cook fans he was talking about?

  • unidentified

    Ha ha boy do I have tunnel vision. I didn’t even notice anyone in the background when I first watched the Cook interview till it was mentioned here.

    Lots of good stuff in that 4 minutes.

  • TwigLA

    Good interview with Cook. He’s great doing these. I can’t believe he was asked if he got death threats from Archie fans.

    I cracked up that the camera operator zoomed out to get Kris, Didi, Alison, and Blake in the shot. THen he zoomed out again when they scooted down. He went back to close-up on David after they left.

  • ross

    Oops on the spelling (fixed it), LOL. I worked at Blockbuster in 1989,we had to wear that color long sleeve button down shirt and khakis. It reminds me of it.

    So for the past 22 years, has every guy in a light blue shirt reminded you of what you wore at Blockbuster? Or just Kris? lol

  • Listening

    I do believe David said the children’s chorus is in couple of songs so they’re not just going to be on Circadian.

    Also i’m trying to imagine how an orchestra is going to work in this album maybe something like his I don’t want to miss a thing performance. Hmm didn’t he have another idol performance where he used an orchestra or am I mistaken?

    Also if a Sitar and Theramin are going to be on the album doesn’t that mean we’ll see one of them play it on stage when they perform the song live that be interesting to see.

  • tierbee

    Where are these patient Cook fans he was talking about?

    Me! Me!

    OK, well kinda. But I haven’t gotten *too* crazy. Now, it helped that I had that big Sing-Off distraction and even a Street Corner Symphony live show to distract me… Haha.

    Does that get me a OneTrueFan Patience Patch? :)

  • tierbee

    So for the past 22 years, has every guy in a light blue shirt reminded you of what you wore at Blockbuster?

    Hey, well, this guy Kevin who used to pick on me in middle school in 1986 wore a pink Polo short sleeved shirt and every pink polo shirt since reminds me of HIM so… it can happen ;)

    I’ll be honest, I payed more attention to Kris and Allison in the back taking pics than David in this interview.

  • Laurie

    Great Cook interview. I can’t wait to hear that album. I love that he took his time and didn’t rush it. His life has been in overdrive since he was on the show, plus he still had personal things to deal with on top of everything else. I have a strong feeling the fans are going to be the beneficiary of the long wait with a great record!

    The other Idols looked great too. I have a feeling DB’s dress may have looked better in person. It’s sort of fun and funky.

  • hoosiermama

    Wait. David and Kris were that close on the red carpet and we don’t have any pics of them together? Boo.

    Nice interviews of both of them (well, except for the Adam question *sigh*). Yay for new music!

    Everyone looked mahvelous!

    Now I hope Kris gets to go home and see Katy–the two week rule requires it!

  • unidentified

    Fountain of beer. Yeah, that sounds about right. David. I have only seen the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie. That was enough for me.

  • Ratna12

    :D Your “concern” for Kris is very heartwarming.

  • ladymadonna

    Good interviews with both Dave and Kris.

    The rollout for This Loud Morning has been really solid. A nice gradual drumbeat, building to the album. We are getting to see so much more under the hood with this record than Cook has ever given before. It’s fairly titillating.

    Really thrilled to hear the direction of Kris’s writing too. I really dig “Shut the Door…” and think an album with that kind of soul would be killer for Kris. He’s so damn good.

  • Ratna12

    Great interview with Kris. Nice to see him out and about.
    If it were my choice, please NO to collaboration with the other guy.

  • karrahbrooke

    I love seeing Cook and Kris as always, but damn Allison looks gorgeous!

  • I love seeing idols from different seasons “hang out”-it really is one big family club !! Great to hear Davids & Kris’s interviews. I agree that Allison looks fabulous.

  • sr4mjc

    So for the past 22 years, has every guy in a light blue shirt reminded you of what you wore at Blockbuster? Or just Kris? lol

    Not just Kris, I hate the Blockbluster blue general. haha I worked there for years, got so sick of that blue shirt. I don’t even think my husband owns a light blue button down, since I do his shopping ;) I think I might have worn that shirt as a Halloween costume years later. So now I see shirts like that and cringe. I know, it’s MY thing, but I still hate the shirt. lol

    Haha! Thanks for being a good sport with my questions. I needed to know why you reacted that way! Please let me know how your therapy is progressing. lol Just kidding. :) Funny how we all react to certain things differently.

    I actually think that shirt looks really good on Kris – the color and the shirt itself – looks like a linen dress shirt (notice, no breast pocket. One reason it doesn’t look like a shirt you wear to work). Plus, brown eyed people usually look good in light blue, or so I think. The other night at the Derby he wore a white shirt but I think blue looks better.

  • TwigLA

    Enjoyed the Kris interview. He’s finally given us a direction for the album – Rock Soul. I like it. I want it this summer (actually, I want it next week) so I don’t like hearing ‘hopefully this year.’

    Like David, he says he wants to make it perfect. One thing I love about both of these guys is that they are true musicians and songwriters besides being great singers/performers.

    I can’t help be annoyed by the interviewer bringing in Archie fanwars (death threats) to David and Adam collaboration with Kris. They both handled it well, but wtf! Do people ask Kelly when she’s going to make another movie with Justin? Or Carrie when she’s going to duet with Bo? Or any other winner about the runner up from their year?

    I have loved all the Kris news lately- hope he’s shown on the Finale also?
