‘American Idol’ remains the ‘original’ – With no major internal changes, “Idol” faces genuine competition. First, NBC unveiled a surprisingly vibrant “Idol” alternative last spring with “The Voice,” which returns Feb. 5 after the Super Bowl. Then former “Idol” judge Simon Cowell on Fox last fall launched “The X Factor,” a more aggressive singing competition with a slicker sheen. While neither matched “Idol” in ratings, they both drew a healthy audience, potentially siphoning fans away from “Idol.” – Atlanta Journal Constitution

Better Than I Know Myself video is coming soon…

Pinoy at heart – It was such a thrill to meet David Archuleta of “American Idol” fame. I visited the set of “Nandito Ako,” his dramaserye with TV5, on its first taping day. As soon as we were introduced, he hummed “Hello Dolly” and said it’s one of his favorite songs. I got to listen to his version of “Nandito Ako.” I was pleasantly surprised that he sang it in almost perfect Pinoy diction. He is also set to record its English version, “Forever With You” (as translated by the song’s composer, Aaron Paul). – Read more at Inquirer.Net

David aka Josh Archuleta TV5 Jan16

David Archuleta talks about Josh, the character he plays in the Filipino soap opera he’s starring in.

David Archuleta puts showbiz hiatus on hold to do TV5 miniseries – Arguably one of the most popular products of the premier singing competition on US TV, David Archuleta is well-loved by Pinoys with enough followers to form several fan clubs that are major players in the most popular social-networking sites—a fact that has not been lost on him. That is why he has the most number of trips here in the country as far as AI winners and runners-up are concerned, save for those with Filipino bloods like Jasmine Trias and Thia Megia. – Read more at Business Mirror.com

  1. Lauren’s new do is cute, she is one of those people who can look so different from picture to picture even without hair color changes.I guess she is ready to rock out on the tour later this week.

  2. Tonight is the night.

    Adam Lambert appears on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno 11:35/10:35 NBC

    It’s been a while to see Adam Live.
    New single BTIKM and new music director.
    I’m very excited!!!! Even though I have to wait to watch from YouTube.
    NBC will take it down very fast.
    Hope to see the videos here.

  3. YAY… Sauli is going to Leno and Ellen Shows with Adam.  HAPPY!!!

    To all the ladies and gentlemen who are going to Jay Leno tonight …

    Have an ADAMAZING time!!!!!

    Please scream, flail and squee for us too.

    Then report. please.

    And how is Sauli in fresh?

    Soooo…jealous of you guys.

  4. The Voice is a joke.  They did nothing for the singers and basically just promoted the judges careers.  Will not watch again.  Idol rules as far as I’m concerned.

  5. Love Lauren’ s hair- makes her look more her age.

    And ya gotta love Adam Lambert for making the most of his purchases- whether art or clothes. That horses skull hangs above his own fireplace, lol. And it kind of reminds me of an Eagles album- can’t remember which one.

  6. The Voice is a joke.  They did nothing for the singers and basically
    just promoted the judges careers.

    The powers that be absolutely promoted the judges. However, one judge did his very best to promote his picks and that is Blake Shelton. From the constant tweeting to the constant “buy their album” to taking his final one standing on his first major tour as an opener. I like to see a judge of one of these shows actually try to help their contestant after the finale. Good for him!

  7. Hoping that Adam gets a bit of a sit down interview with Jay, but even if he doesn’t, it will be great to see him performing again.  :)

  8. I’ll be watching for Adam. I’m not a fan of Sauli so I don’t care if he’s there or not. I’ve read transcripts of his blogs which are void of any real substance and therefore come across like someone trying to gain attention simply because of his relationship.

  9. I cannot wait to see Adam tonight! I am dead jealous of those of you that are going but SO HAPPY for you all! Give him a big scream for me.

  10. Well, they’ve released David Cook’s “This Loud Morning” in Japan, and here it is right above David Archuleta’s CD:

    http://twitpic.com/84s4l8

    Then, a magazine article popped up. Here are the pics. And, interestingly enough, Daughtry is featured on the page opposite:

    And, just this morning, we heard from David’s Japanese fans that they did a short feature on David and his new album on the radio. They played his two singles, plus Rapid Eye Movement. They also played portions of Paper Heart and Right Here With You. Here’s a bit of it:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ODNS-EGoBoQ&list=UUKFDM9wJFax7ihNFwgZdeBQ&index=1&feature=plcp

    So, I guess — “soon” — we will hear about Japanese tour date(s). At least, we think that’s what this build up is all about.

    Thank you to the Japanese fans who posted their photos for us and recorded the radio program!

  11. That last article, “David puts hiatus on hold” — LOL. I think something got a little lost in translation there. What’s funny is they have in the body of the article where David said his mission wasn’t planned to start until later this year so the tv show fit into his schedule. I do like the idea of putting a hiatus on hiatus though ;) Funniest part:

    Last question: does David cook?
    Yeah.

    HA. /random

  12. Can’t wait until Leno tonight!!!

    Saulis blog is typical as far as personal blogs go, there’s no mandate to read it. He had a blogging job prior to his current blog too. He doesn’t mention Adam in his blogs all that much either, but since Sauli does share his life, love and a home with Adam, small little glimpses will sometimes be inevitable. :).

  13. Aww, the Davids together again! lol. I hope he does get to do a show(s) in Japan! That would be awesome.

  14. I’m so excited to see Adam on Leno.  I’m happy that Sauli will be there in the audience.  He seems like such a sweetheart and his blogs are adorable!  I look forward to reading them. I love how in his latest blog he refers to Adam as his “siippa”. Love them.

  15. Regarding Leno tonight- set your DVRs a few minutes after because I think it runs over about 5 minutes. Adam’s performance may be at the end and you could end up not recording it.
    Yikes, can’t believe it’s happening, first performance of BTIKM! Adam has got to be a bit nervous but I am sure he will nail it.

  16. Lauren looks great.  Can’t wait to hear BTIKM, the new keyboard guy seems interesting.  

    Ah, Sauli is a famewhore meme. Pullleeeze. If so, he would have sold naked pics to the tabloids a year ago. 

  17. I was not interested in Adam’s love life, his exes, or his personal life because it isn’t my beeswax. But the first time I saw  photos of Adam with his HEARTEYES to Sauli at Disney, I knew that Adam was in love and very happy.
    If Adam is happy, I’m very, very happy.

    Sauli has proved to me to be a good guy, a decent guy.  And he is getting more gorgeous everyday.

  18. Even though Blake tweets crazy stuff, I always thought he had a nurturing personality. He is willing to help other artists. He’s going to tour with 1 of his contestant picks & he’s tweeting about listening or buying their music. 

    The problem is this is still a tv show. The other 3 judges are helping mentor them during the show. Are they really helping them after the show? I know Adam had a duet with Javier on his album. But besides that are any of them giving them advice. It doesn’t help that The Voice judges haven’t even brought up Javier to try to get him more sales. I know he’s not selling well, but they could try to plug his album to help him. They shouldn’t just ignore him or not talk about him since he’s not doing well.

  19. Hoping that Adam gets a bit of a sit down interview with Jay, but even
    if he doesn’t, it will be great to see him performing again.

    He will.  Leno just loves him, right?  And since apparently the boyfriend will be there, he’ll get some face time, too.  Or at least his name mentioned.  I just know that I won’t be watching because Leno sucks.

  20. YEA Adam on Leno, finally get to hear the boy SING, (and see what he wears and how his hair looks) its been so long, love BTIKM can’t wait to hear it live! Also curious about the band and how they will look/sound with the changes. Glad Sauli will be there, he’s a cutie, can’t imagine how hard it must have been to move here from Finland AND deal with the media circus that surrounds Adam, I think he handles everything really well and I enjoy his sunny little blog. 

    OMG Kellie on Ellen, they are so funny together, if you haven’t seen them together youtube their other interviews, sooooo funny!

    Lauren is a pretty girl, love the new hair, liked the old hair.

    I’ve also seen the pic of that skull thing in Adam’s house, he has interesting taste o_0

  21. “So, I guess — “soon” — we will hear about Japanese tour date(s). At least, we think that’s what this build up is all about.”

    Sassycatz, thanks! Nice compilation of what’s happening with David Cook and TLM – Japan – so far. Yeah – I think the smart money is on Japan as the next leg of the Tour…”s**n”.

    Although, if David goes out “probably in February” as he said – and tours “til Spring”, as he also told that cute Pittsburgh radio person who proposed to him, then there’s time to visit another country or two in there as well. Maybe. He’s been focusing on writing all last week, and there’s speculation swirling around that as well.  – But it’s WTF!Cook – so who knows?

  22. I don’t think Adam will get a sitdown, there will be two other guests. Jay does seem to like him a lot since this will be his fourth performance on the show. Maybe at album release time, lol.

  23. Sauli is going because it’s fun and his boyfriend is singing. Plus I’m sure it makes Adam feel good.

    Anyways, I’m sure Adam will sing his single, and there won’t be an interview because I don’t think Leno does interviews with musical guests except the huge stars like Madonna on the Tonight Show.  He will mention his album and shake hands at most.  And Sauli won’t be mentioned.  LOL.

    I don’t know much about Lauren, but she looks so cute in that picture.  Love her blonde hair!

  24. I won’t see the Tonight Show on my TV but people who do … don’t miss the beginning of the show when Leno comes out to shake hands with the audience.
    You may get a glimpse of Sauli, the glamberts, and may be Leila (if she goes).
    Hope somebody film this too.
    I’m so excited!!!!!!!

  25. I don’t think there will be an interview either this time. I loved their first “plucking” interview, they had great chemistry. I think it will be nice to read Sauli’s take on it from the audience, he really has a charming way of expressing himself.
    That MV clue pic Adam tweeted is um..interesting. I can’t even guess what it is going to look like. Adam emoting and looking gorgeous will be enough for me. OMG, this could happen in 2 weeks!

  26. Reminder:

    No arguing about Sauli please. He’s barely on topic. Let’s keep the Headlines thread focused on the Idols and other stars/contestants we cover here.

  27. I too am really looking forward to seeing Adam perform BTIKM on Leno tonight.  It’s been so long since we’ve heard him sing his own music on TV. I think he’s really gonna slay that song live and I can’t wait to hear what he does with it! Looking forward to seeing and hearing the new band configuration too.

  28. This is going to be ONE GREAT WEEK for Adam fans. Leno, Ellen, Ryan…and hopefully Byron Cooke’s video interview! And then next week Radio impact AND the possibility of the video release. Since he said there will be a “twist” everyone is trying to figure it out. Well I am anyhow. LOL

  29. I could care less if Adam has an interview tonight (I’m guessing no).  I’m just really excited to hear him sing his first single off his forthcoming album!!!!!!!

    He’ll have interviews eventually, somewhere.  I’m guessing more at album release time.

  30. I’m in Adam heaven right now. There’s so much to look forward to in the coming weeks/months. I’m also excited to see how the band does tonight with the new additions…. especially the new music director.

  31. That horses skull hangs above his own fireplace, lol.

    ????? A horses skull? What is the story behind that? Did he shoot it himself (that’s usually why people choose to decorate their house with dead animals)? I have visions with him on a hunting trip with Kristy Lee Cook that went deadly wrong when that dude who bought her beloved barrel horse decided to return it announced. Perhaps, it is a continuation of the Kristy Lee Cook curse? Perhaps the cause?

    Although, Adam does live in LA. I suppose it could be part of an offer he couldn’t refuse and rather than just let the head go to waste, he had it mounted.

    Is it something he found while wondering the desert as part of the Burning Man Festival? Or perhaps Kris found it during one of his many video shoots in the desert and gifted it to Adam (“You like wearing leather which is kind of a cowboy thing to do. Here, have a horses skull to complete the look!”). Or maybe it, and not the inflatable kangaroo, is the reason Adam asked fans to stop giving him gifts and start donating to charity.

    How do we even know that he has a horse’s head hanging over his fireplace? I have visions of late night reconnaissance missions. Now I wonder what kind of animals other Idols have hanging over their mantels. Kristy probably has a deer. Blake will be ironic and have a singing reindeer.  Simon Cowell probably just has a picture of himself.

  32. “Or perhaps Kris found it during one of his many video shoots in the
    desert and gifted it to Adam (“You like wearing leather which is kind of
    a cowboy thing to do. Here, have a horses skull to complete the look!”)”

    lmao!

  33. It’s probably made of wood LOL and we know about it because he tweeted a picture of his fireplace on Halloween.

    No mysteries here.

  34. Lauren looks cute,  Excited to hear Adam sing tonight, I just hate that song he sings, so boring- but it will great to watch him perform.

  35. “The powers that be absolutely promoted the judges. However, one judge did his very best to promote his picks and that is Blake Shelton. From the constant tweeting to the constant “buy their album” to taking his final one standing on his first major tour as an opener. I like to see a judge of one of these shows actually try to help their contestant after the finale. Good for him!”

    I completely agree!! You can keep the other three (and two with arena sized egos).

  36. we know about it because he tweeted a picture of his fireplace on Halloween.

    No mysteries here.

    No mystery? What are you talking about? I took a peak at that picture ThisIsVoodoo posted. What kind of mutant horse has horns? Now I’m thinking he found it it in Area 51. The alien skeleton he also found probably hangs behind the bathroom door to freak people out at parties.

  37. I’m so thrilled and excited for Adam’s first performance of Better Than I Know Myself on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno at 11:35 PM.   Can’t wait!  ILHSM!

  38. It’s from his home planet of course. Everything there comes with extra accessories. :-)

  39. I don’t think horses have antlers…so based on the skull I think it is a type of African Antelope…..And maybe it came with the house….or a voodoo shop in New Orleans.

  40. who knows where the head came from.  Maybe he took lessons from Kris and stole it from somewhere.

  41. i think when ppl first saw adams picture (he tweeted it long time ago) they were saying how its baphomet and the whole illuminati thingamajig

  42. When did Clay have time to teach? Wasn’t he about 22 when he was on American Idol? Did he not sing for a few years after idol to teach? How does one finish college while touring (according to his bio)?

  43. Taylor Hicks wrote a book after winning American Idol in 2006 called “A Heart Full of Soul .. An Inspirational Memoir about Finding Your Voice and Finding Your Way”.  According to Random House, the book is now trending.  

    PS it’s an entertaining read.

    @randomhouserandomhouse Now trending in Biography: Heart Full of Soul An Inspirational Memoir About Finding Your Voice and Finding Your Way http://bit.ly/AhEwMI

  44. If the original question was what does the picture have to do with the BTIKM video, I think it’s fairly obvious that he’s emphasizing that whole light side vs dark side thing again. Subtlety is not Adam’s strong suit :-)  (And spelling is apparently not mine! It took me three tries to spell subtlety.)
     
    I am so excited for the Leno performance tonight!  I can’t wait to see and hear BTIKM performed live, and with Adam, you never know what he’s going to do! Wouldn’t surprise me a bit if the band comes out wearing skulls on their heads…

  45. who knows where the head came from.  Maybe he took lessons from Kris and stole it from somewhere.

    Those are some big pockets Adam must have. Is that a mutant horse with horns in your pocket or are you just…

    And, that’s the end of that topic…

    or a voodoo shop in New Orleans.

    Better not have used Kris’s oops-forget-it-in-my-pocket trick there. That’s seriously bad juju.

  46. Tonight’s the night Glamberts!! I can’t wait to see Adam and to hear him sing BTIKM live. squeeee!!! hehe :)

  47. I liked The Voice, but the judges need to sing songs they can actually do justice to. Don’t ever sing Queen songs again. Their medley was a huge disaster.

    Didn’t Christina go back and record another album?

  48. I’m sure knowing Adam he must have killed it in the most inhumane way possible and 1500 complaints have been sent to PETA already. I’m sure Leno is cancelling as we speak.

  49. I knew that looked familiar but couldn’t recall where I had seen it.  Thanks, Studio57 for jogging the memory.

    Very intriguing …. the light and the dark side of the soul …. the video should be a stunner.

  50. How wonderful that after 4+ years, Taylor’s book is trending at Random House! It’s an amazing book, filled with humor and reflection.  I think it was co-written with David Wild, editor at Rolling Stone magazine. I also have the audiobook that accompanied the hardcover book.  They should re-release it in softcover.

  51. The picture may be based on the “thing” above the fireplace, but it’s not the same one. Light and dark are on opposite sides.

  52. Kirsten as usual you are killing me:-)

     Common tell us what’s on your wall? You wouldn’t want to know what’s on mine LoL:) Hmmm…. the secret!

  53. Ugh.

    Just deleted some really really childish trolling. FROM REGULARS. Are we grownups here people?

  54. That Business Mirror interview of David A is fantastic, and not only for the “Does David cook” question. It’s great to see that David A can joke during the interview about the Book of Mormon play. If I were him though, I would not support Mitt Romney or any political candidate. Look at what happened to Kelly Clarkson. Better to stay neutral.

    Watching the TV interview, I do wonder how hard it will be for David to adjust from living in a 5 star luxury hotel like the Shangri La in Manila to the modest accommodations he’ll be living in during his mission. He’s basically lived the life of a celebrity for the past 4 years with first class accommodations, travel, and meals and with managers and assistants there to help. How does one make the adjustment? Someone should call Ryan Seacrest. I have a feeling Ryan has already pitched the concept of a reality show about David giving up the luxe life for his mission and call it “The Simple Life, The Mormon Edition”. I’m only half kidding.

  55. I can’t wait so see Adam tonight on my TV. Does anyone think the band will be there also. I don’t think BTIKM has any guitar playing in the song. I wouldn’t mind if they were not. Also if you remember Byron Cooke’s preview of Adam’s album he mentioned the tracks he heard were still in their rough stages and not finishes. Do you think this new musical director Kevin Hastings would add his sound to the unfinished tracks. I don’t know how all this comes together but just thinking. From his tweet last night he says he will also be backup singing for Adam. I can’t wait. He has a great look and great voice and he wears eyeliner!!! Yay!!

  56. That was a good interview with Adam and ZM online. More information on songs, the interviewer got to hear several tracks. There is a part 2 coming up. They talked about “Underneath”, interviewer said it made her cry. “Cuckoo” sounds like something I’ve got to have in my life now.
    Also Adam says he hasn’t had a drink since Christmas, wonder why…..?

  57. It looks like some sort of ram to me, definitely not any horse I’ve ever seen.

    In any case, as I said in another post, the symbolism to me represents the light and dark side of each of us … very in sync with everything Adam’s told us about the song and the full Trespassing album.  Can’t wait.

  58. So excited for Adam on Leno!  It’s been too long – can’t wait to see and hear him tonight.

  59. Actually on closer inspection doesn’t seem to be the same head.  Maybe the one Kirsten wrote about is actually a horses head.

    By the way, light and dark is a visual symbol used in many religions and in things as simple as the ying and the yang.  Voodoo also incorporates light and dark as do medieval witches and soccerers.  Animal sacrifice and the bestowing of powers onto the surviving remains is also an age old practice.

    Why do I get the feeling that dark and light will be an ongoing theme with this album for Adam….and that his videos will delve into the practices of honoring the dark and the light.

    By the way…good catch Lee39…I missed the differences between the two heads completely.  Proves to me that what I see, hear, and read isn’t always true when one delves a bit deeper.

  60. It’s the same skull, just in negative.  It’s just an ox/cattle skull. See them all the time in flee markets and in “Southwestern” art installs.

  61. Lol, I didn’t study it enough to realize it had horns :) I just remember the pic he tweeted of it and thought it was a pretty cool piece to hang above the fireplace. I am pretty sure by the end of the day we will know exactly what type of animal it is, and maybe it’s approximate age and sex :P

  62. Ashley tweeted about being excited to play her new jazz Fender, so the band is there.

    I don’t know why today’s photo couldn’t be flipped in post production.  If not, there are two horse/unicorn/ram/antelope with horns in Hollywood. haha, why not. 

  63. I liked The Voice, but the judges need to sing songs they can actually do justice to.

    Or much better yet, don’t sing at all!  Every minute the judges are performing is stealing time from the contestants.

  64. Ah thanks. I don’t follow the band members so I didn’t see her tweet yet. I am also looking forward to Ashley, she seems to be a good fit for the direction Adam wants to go.

  65. OMAAAAAAAAAAAAA :D
    So excited for the music video!!!!!
    And the youtube tomorrow of adam on leno :D (wish i would be allowed to stay up and see it haha-dont let me down with the youtubes people :P)

  66. Thanks for the heads up! 
    I eat at Angelo’s a lot, food there is great. It was Sinatra’s favorite restaurant in AC back in the day. Guess I know where I’ll be going next week.
    Thanks!!!

  67. Cute interview from Adam. He’s always so engaging and at ease and adorable :)

  68. Can’t wait to hear Lambert sing tonight on Leno! He’s gonna kill it! o/

    Can’t wait for the awesome feedback from the audience! o/

    Can’t wait for the awesome reviews tomorrow! o/

    I’m excited! o/

  69. If I can win tickets, I’ll go.

    However, it will be an act of sheer will power to continue listening to that Top40 station long enough to hear how I can get tickets. Only 15 min. of  listening and I can’t take it any longer. LOL

  73. This article in InterAksyon.com reveals a little more of the storyline behind Archie’s mini-series:

    In the mini-serye, David plays the role of Josh, a Filipino-American born and raised in the Philippines and later sent to the US. At the tender age of five, he is separated from his mother during a big fire in their neighborhood. After many years, he returns to the Philippines as an accomplished international pop star in search of his long-lost mother.

    David says he can relate to his Fil-Am character in real life. “Whatever personality trait that might be, I feel like I have that too,” he said.

    In the series, David unwittingly comes between two best friends, played by Jasmin (as Hanya) and Eula (as Holly). He declines to explain what happens, but prods the public to just watch the TV5 series.

  74. I don’t know, but I heard that the mini series will be available on DVD a month after the last airing of the show.  Those who subscribe to Filipino channels on satellite TV are probably privy to viewing it here in the states.

  75. Heh. I tried to post about TLM in Japan this morning and only now found out it didn’t post. Oh, well, news got around.

  76. woah James is going to be 10 minutes from my house, if I can win tix I would love to go. LOL at his comments about XF. I get what hes saying, and I know he always supported Chris, but um him and his wife both tweeted their support to Stacey Francis during the show so I dunno.

    Excited to see Adam on Leno tonight!

  77. You can see the comfort David A has in all of the press and interviews he has taken part in.

    I have read nothing but accolades about David Archuleta from those that have been working with him in the Philippines.  They have been impressed with his professionalism, his singing in Tagalog with a near perfect accent (Nandito Ako to be released on itunes and talk about him recording the English version written by the original songwriter), his natural acting ability, work ethic on and on.  I can’t wait to see the miniseries.  There is also talk of a open call concert to tape the concert scenes for the series. 

  78. Adam will be performing in Austria on his birthday. The tweet is about being able to win tickets.

    Dutch fans, Adam will be performing at the Q-music Snowcase just saw Adam Official write down on January the 29 Gr Es pic.twitter.com/iILzIJCI

  79. I loved his “reply” to his manager about whether he’d be interested in performing with Queen at the EMAs!!!!

  80. I wouldn’t expect Adam to get a sit-down interview on Leno. On Ellen, maybe?

    Don’t care if Sauli is there or not. It’s nice that they are happy together and all that, but he has nothing to do with Adam’s career.

  81. Thanks for the links, durbfan. I’ve been waiting for these to appear. :D
    (I’ve seen part of his bing performances but not all so far).

    James looks really at ease and has a good interaction with the audience. :) From the songs, I haven’t heard yet, really love “May” and “Right behind you”. A pity, WYSLM isn’t up, I wonder if they don’t have the rights to show the video as it is cover, or if they just forgot it.

    As for James’ Atlantic City appearance, good luck luck to all the fans in the area for winning tickets.
    I guess this is about the nearest he’ll get to me in the near future, only 6 times zones away instead of 9. Oh well…

    I like Lauren’s new ‘do, she looks cute, makes her look younger, more like the teenager she ist. Does anyone else think she looks a bit like Drew from X-Factor in this pic?

  82. I liked The Voice, but the judges need to sing songs they can actually
    do justice to. Don’t ever sing Queen songs again. Their medley was a
    huge disaster.

    Didn’t Christina go back and record another album? 

    Like I’ve said before, I just don’t understand why they just can’t do each other’s songs.  The opening performance of them doing “Crazy” was the best performance judges/coaches/whatever performance.  That Queen medley was messed up.  Now, they’re supposed to be doing a Prince medley?  Oh, hell no.

    The rumor is that Christina did go back and record another album and she’s supposed to be having a single coming out.  The same people who are loving all over Adam Lambert’s stuff is saying that the single is supposed to be hot and all that stuff.  Like I’m not believing them about Lambert’s stuff, I’m also not believing all the hyperbole about Christina’s new single.

  83. It’s called European promo, a showcase for a Dutch radio station.  The world does not end at the US borders.

  84. He most definitely will get a sit down on Ellen.  The boyfriend will get a shout out then.

  85. I’m expecting a sit down on Ellen too & hoping for an announcement about his birthday charity.

  86. We’ve been able to see their new stories on TV5 ustream which is the Channel for the Mini Series.  To keep tabs on info #followarchuleta.ph  has been pretty informative (also from TV 5)
    They did say there would be a DVD one month after the series.  The series starts Feb.20th  5 nights for 5 weeks.  25 episodes.
    They will be releasing the song NanditoAKO soon to Itunes.  Rumors also that it will be recorded in English.  Stay tuned.

  87. Agreed, at her age, why not play with color  a bit.  Easily changed the next trip to the salon (as long as you don’t fry it and it breaks off.)

    I see pink, blue, all kinds of streaked hair pour out of my daughter’s high school as I wait to pick up.

  88. Never meant to imply the world stopped outside the US, just surprised because it is not where I expected his European promo to start.
    Could this be a one off concert like Singapore Amway event? Even if it is it would probably make sense to go to the UK from there as has been hinted?

  89. It’s not a private event like Singapore. The show is Austria is a “showcase” for radio people and they often invite the European PDs from other countries. For instance, the showcase is run by a Dutch radio station but is being held in Austria. It might have been the best location for European visitors. It’s actually really hard for people to get tickets and I think the only way is to win them (at least currently). 

    Yes, he’ll likely hit the UK some time after that, since February was when his UK publicist said he’d be there.

  90. The whole “I was a teacher” thing was originally “I was going to be a teacher”, which was accurate since Clay was in college when he tried out for Idol (I think that he was 24).  He did some part-time teaching that was (I think) part of his course work (like the autistic boy who’s mom persuaded Clay to try out for Idol), but he wasn’t a full-time teacher.  At some point, Clay decided to drop the “going to be” part.  lol  He managed to arrange to finish his degree by doing a special project or something, related to starting a charitable foundation and that allowed him to graduate after the Idol tour.

  91. Imagine if Scotty M. and Allison Iraheta were to have a baby their girl or boy would have the deepest voice ever lol

  92. Lol, why not Austria, it’s as good any other European country (actually,  around February you’d think it becomes way better because everybody and their dog’s fleas head into the Alps) and it’s not the UK that Adam has already had success in. I wouldn’t be sure about the UK ppl there because from what I understand, UK radio kinda lives its own separate life from the rest of the EU?

  95. I’m totally agree , he better stay away from politics right now , and watch carefully what he’s a saying ….. sensibility is not exactly the word to describe the Republican Party ;)

  100. IMO, the Voice’s really count on their judges popularity to promote the show. They know they cannot compete with the established and popular AI, so they get the judges to work on it ;)

  101. So it’s not really a promo tour? It means he’s going to also sing some of the songs from FYE. Then maybe from Austria he’s going directly to UK to promote BTIKM.

  102. Gorgeous picture of Adam

    I’m so excited for this new chapter to begin! Thank you to all of you out there
    for your love and support. Enjoy Tresp… http://say.ly/ikB1hCT

  103. Durbfan, thank you for collecting all the James Durbin Bing Lounge performance vids in one place.  Awesome!  Having heard the acoustic vids, I now think that “Higher Than Heaven” or “Love in Ruins” would make the best choices for the next single.

    (Not sure if post went through.)
