Seth Rollins Was Cut on “American Idol, ” But Keep Listening

Seth Rollins’ voice will not go unheard.

The 29-year-old Lakeland resident was eliminated from Season 9 of ”American Idol” last week after making it to the second round of competition dubbed Hollywood Week. The competition continues without him tonight and Wednesday on Fox.

While he has suffered what he admits was a “heartbreaking” disappointment, Rollins says he is only getting started.

“There’s a reason I’m not there. I don’t have any regrets, ” said Rollins, an insurance adjuster for Progressive.

Kris-crossing with Allen

What does it take to be an Idol? If reigning American Idol Kris Allen’s advice is anything to go by, the secret is pretty simple. “I think playing an instrument helps.”

Sound advice as he handled quite a few instruments during his performances on the show including the acoustic and electric guitar, keyboard and the piano.

“But if you can’t do that, obviously eyeliner helps — but not for me, ” he laughs, in an apparent reference to his Idol runner-up Adam Lambert.

His deadpan sense of humour is refreshing. In an interview some time before his showcase at the Gardens Hotel last week, Kris did seem rather aloof, but it’s forgivable seeing the strenuous schedule he has been put through since being crowned in the world’s most popular talent show.

Milwaukee Talks: “Idol” finalist Danny Gokey

Danny Gokey was in a car traveling from Austin to Dallas last Thursday afternoon when he took some time to talk about how his life has changed over the past year, since his run to a third-place finish on Fox’s “American Idol.”

He’s pushing his first album, “My Best Days, ” which comes out March 2, and he’s working just as hard on his Sophia’s Heart Foundation, which he set up in memory of his late wife to fund arts and music programs for kids.

Gokey, 29, is hoping to find a niche in the musical world as a country artist, a genre that wasn’t exactly what you might have expected when he competed on last year’s “Idol.”

Jason Wade of Lifehouse Talks About The Band’s New Album, Smoke & Mirrors, And His Songwriting

One of the melodies that Wade paid attention to became “Had Enough.” Co-written with Chris Daughtry and Richard Marx, the song examines a recurring theme in many of Wade’s hit songs–love. “This is probably one of the more memorable songs I’ve written. Chris and I just kind of hit it off. We played a show in Texas a couple of years ago and just became really good friends. Chris also suggested the Richard Marx connection so we made it a three piece. Richard flew in from Chicago and met Chris who was doing his record out in Hollywood. I met them out there and we wrote “Had Enough” in about an hour. Chris was still in town when we recorded this song, so he also lent his background vocals on that track.”

Review: Kelly Clarkson, BIC, Bournemouth

IT’S common knowledge that Kelly Clarkson has an impressive voice, but to fully appreciate her astonishing vocal ability you have to see her live.

The original pop idol opened her set with the title track of her tour and latest album, All I Ever Wanted, before steaming into the single that launched her post-American Idol career all those years ago, Miss Independent.

Dressed all in black, Clarkson was joined on stage by an impressive eight-piece band and no expense had been spared on the production side with an impressive lighting display adding to every song.

Caught! All Eyes on Lambert & Ke$ha—But Why?

Adam Lambert, Ke$ha and Milk screenwriter Dustin Lance Black were spotted hanging in NYC at Club 57 over the weekend.

While DLB kept pretty under the radar at the hip joint, we’re told one of his fellow companions caused a stir for all the wrong reasons…

Relax Glambert fans, it was KeSha, obviously.

The wannabe rebel singer performed two songs at the club, “Tik Tok” and “Blah Blah Blah, ” around 3 a.m. and a partier tells us it was “awful.”

The real stud you’re all wondering about, Mr. Lambert, held court with fellow power gay Dustin Lance Black in the VIP section upstairs.

Our source says AL looked his usual fabulous eyelinered self, but “didn’t mix with anyone in the regular crowd.”

  1. Wow, these are really early MJ, you work truly hard (I’m still working as well, the web can be demanding…).

    I wonder, will they ever stop asking Adam about his Madonna encounter? I love Madonna too, but the story is not really that interesting.

  2. I can’t get into Katie Stevens, she seems to have been programed to do this with all the pageants and talent shows she must have gone before, but all these people they interviewed seem very confident in her ability.

  3. LLWD and WWFM had good Pop updates today (from Kworb at Pulse):

  5. not sure where to post this , but Z100 has Adam’s performances last night posted on their website…they are also playing the acoustic version of WWFM on air right this minute! So pretty!

  6. ITunes update:

    #15 Pants on the Ground
    #18 LLWD
    #27 WWFM

    I can’t believe POTG is still doing this well.

  7. Allison lost spins but has still cracked the Top 60 on the daily mediabase update. I think this is the highest chart rank for FIBOU isn’t it?

    63 59 ALLISON IRAHETA Friday I’ll Be Over U 226 235 -9 0.528

    Meanwhile, the 2 songs just ahead of LLWD are losing spins quickly, although Kris may end up getting passed by Ke4ha’s Blah Blah Blah (now at #17 and with a bullet of more than +900) Two of the 3 songs just in front of WWFM are tumbling, as well, although Justin Bieber and Lady Antebellum are right on Adam’s heels.

  8. I appreciated Slezak’s article on “Your Next Favorite Song?”. I was thrilled to see Matt and Allison make that list, but I also really liked some of the other folks that he chose. I am particularly happy for Mishavonnah that she is getting recognition even though she didn’t get very far in the S8 competition because I always felt she should have been in the Wildcard Round. She has an incredible voice.

  9. Unfortunately probably none of the songs Slezak suggests will end up being big hits — at least not on the main charts — because none of those people are among the handful of Idols who have been embraced by Pop or Hot AC or Urban radio. If they are lucky, a few of them will be hits on the more specialized charts

  10. Interview in one of he Malaysian papers with Kris. He talks about what he hopes his next album is like:

    As for his album, Allen says that the inclusion of the cover of Heartless is the last time he includes reworked tunes.

    Despite his many enjoyable interpretations of big tunes in the show, there is almost no chance of any of them making it to future studio albums.

    “Can’t imagine that I would (include reworked tunes). All the songs I did on the show, I really loved, definitely suited a live show. But I really can’t imagine I would record them cause it’s already been done.”

    “For the second album, I want to write all the songs and I definitely want to spend more time in production. Ask anybody how you can make an album in four short months.

    “I want to spend months and months sitting down by myself and write songs and really perfect a lot of stuff.”

    Allen hints at a shift in his music, and it should come as no surprise if he pulls a Kelly (former Idol Kelly Clarkson), who changed her sound after her debut upon being given more creative freedom.

    So how different will Kris Allen be in the future?

    “I don’t know how different. For me maybe a little bit more raw, emotionally heavy.”

  11. ‘American Idol’ Grads: Your Next Favorite Song?

    I can’t get over how much I love that Matt and Anna version of You Don’t Know Me. I think it should be on another movie soundtrack.

  12. Ok, I’m getting a little nervous about WWFM’s POP movement. What’s going on there? I guess songs around it are moving up more than it is, but still.

  13. not sure where to post this , but Z100 has Adam’s performances last night posted on their website…they are also playing the acoustic version of WWFM on air right this minute! So pretty!

    Where are they on the site. I don’t see them. Just the phone thing.

  14. I just think it’s amusing how that guy from Nightline is so excited about his oh-so-exclusive Adam scoops. “He spills about the time he met Madonna! And he reveals how he feels about Lady Gaga!” Hell, even his own network, the one that banned Adam, has covered these subjects ad nauseum.

  15. For all the Cookie fans – WPLJ in NY is playing Magic Rainbow right now – the song that will never die :)

  16. I can’t believe POTG is still doing this well.

    LOL! Actually, I think if it were ready to go when they aired the audition episode where General Platt performed, it would have skyrocketed straight to the top! I know it’s extremely popular with all of the kids in school, and the message is definitely relevant. I just hope that General Platt is receiving compensation for this and not some fraud.

    I appreciated Slezak’s article on “Your Next Favorite Song?”.

    Me too, although I’ve only been watching IDOL since S6 so I can’t really speak to those from prior seasons. It always amazes and scares me that Slezak seems to write exactly what I’m thinking (although he writes much more eloquently than I think – LOL). I’m still waiting for a time where I disagree with him – haven’t found it yet!

    Ok, I’m getting a little nervous about WWFM’s POP movement. What’s going on there? I guess songs around it are moving up more than it is, but still.

    I’m not an expert at this, but his overall spins increased quite a bit in one day and the rolling 7 day, as well as AI. While his spin ranking may have dropped a bit, his song is being played more often and heard by more people, so I think that’s good.

  18. Ok, I’m getting a little nervous about WWFM’s POP movement. What’s going on there? I guess songs around it are moving up more than it is, but still.

    No, its fine. As long as the song is still increasing in adds and spins everything is fine. Plus, you have to remember that the higher a song gets on the chart the harder it is to move up spots. That song should get to the top 10 in time, or at least really close to it.

    For all the Cookie fans – WPLJ in NY is playing Magic Rainbow right now – the song that will never die :)

    And somewhere, Cookie sheds a tear. Heh.

  19. @drhost: On set with Adam Lambert and Ke$ha

    Anyone know what Adam is doing with Kesha today? and what yesterdays photo shoot was for (there are pics up on twitter from the photog), and what sundays photo shoot was for? And how much longer Adam will be in NYC and what he is doing here? Not that I’m being nosy or anything, LOL.

  20. not sure where to post this , but Z100 has Adam’s performances last night posted on their website…they are also playing the acoustic version of WWFM on air right this minute! So pretty!

    I only see “Fever” and Adam’s new hit “Get Off Your Phone” posted so far.

  21. mmb-

    drhost Wow you guys are awesome, they’re doing a photoshoot for a cover of a mag, separtely though (about adam and kesha)

    i think that the glossy picture from yesterday is for snl in march sometime, the photographer has done alot of snl shoots plus the tweeter @sexynarwhal has connections and hinted at something supposedly she said “bigger than ellen” and she has contacts with nbc, but again RUMOR

    adam has the blonds fashion show today

  22. i think that the glossy picture from yesterday is for snl in march sometime, the photographer has done alot of snl shoots plus the tweeter @sexynarwhal has connections and hinted at something supposedly she said “bigger than ellen” and she has contacts with nbc, but again RUMOR

    He did a shoot on sunday that the glossy pics are from, and a shoot yesterday that pics just showed up on twitter from….yesterday’s shoot looks more casual…wonder what is up?

  23. mmb i just edited my post, looks like its another magazine cover! and kesha is a separate cover

  24. More on the Adam/Ke$ha thing:

    drhost Wow you guys are awesome, they’re doing a photoshoot for a cover of a mag, separtely though 3 minutes ago from Echofon

  25. i think that the glossy picture from yesterday is for snl in march sometime, the photographer has done alot of snl shoots plus the tweeter @sexynarwhal has connections and hinted at something supposedly she said “bigger than ellen” and she has contacts with nbc, but again RUMOR

    Pretty sure SNL shoots are done during the week the guests are on set rehearsing, not a month ahead of time.

  26. “For the second album, I want to write all the songs and I definitely want to spend more time in production. Ask anybody how you can make an album in four short months.

    “I want to spend months and months sitting down by myself and write songs and really perfect a lot of stuff.”

    thanks girlygirl for the article on Kris. i love the actual one and am so thrilled to hear anything new he’s going to create.

  27. yeah i agree with you mj, i dont think its for snl, thats just what people were saying it could be based on the connections, but very doubtful

  28. Mandisa mentioned in the article above made me think back to a couple weeks ago when I saw her pop up again on Idol Rewind – she is looking FABULOUS!

    So, what is the magazine that Adam and Kesha (separately) are doing? Or is that not known yet? I seriously feel right now that if I blink I miss some new Adam news. lol.

    ETA: BTW – I am really really really looking forward to idol this week! Top 24 revealed! FINALLY I can look at the spoilers (lol – now that they’ll be completely irrelevant ;-) )

  29. From the MSN Canada article tweeted by Sony:

    http://entertainment.ca.msn.com/music/fe….entid=23466361

    I think this is an important quote to bring over – Ely Rise is one of the co-writes for Aftermath:

    “Although Idol albums are typically made really fast — this one in two to three months — and one would assume the artist wouldn’t have much say in the songs or the direction, Rise freely offers his observation after working with Lambert.

    “He knew exactly what he wanted for this album,” says Rise. “I’ve never seen an artist who was so in charge of his first record, and how he wanted the album to sound like — the mix of styles, sounds, vibes — how he wanted to portray himself musically to the world. RCA must have had complete faith in Adam and his vision.”

  30. HDD is in at 54.02% and here are the idols (unless I missed some)

    16 19 CARRIE UNDERWOOD 19/ARISTA NASHVILLE 21,977
    — 43 DAUGHTRY 19/RCA/RMG 12,648

    No Adam or Kris in the top 50.

  31. So, what is the magazine that Adam and Kesha (separately) are doing? Or is that not known yet? I seriously feel right now that if I blink I miss some new Adam news. lol

    It is hard to keep up with. This is like the 3rd photo shoot in as many days.

  32. Wow those numbers look really high for 54% reporting. Last week #50 sold about 10K final numbers. THis week, #50 has more than that with only 54% reporting. Looks weird.

  33. I would think Adam will still make an appearance in the top 50 when the final numbers come in. Both Davids saw big increases for Valentines week last year.

  34. Wow those numbers look really high for 54% reporting. Last week #50 sold about 10K final numbers. THis week, #50 has more than that with only 54% reporting. Looks weird.

    These numbers include Valentine’s Day sales. CD’s are common gifts, so this week typically sees an increase in sales for many albums.

  35. Wow those numbers look really high for 54% reporting. Last week #50 sold about 10K final numbers. THis week, #50 has more than that with only 54% reporting. Looks weird.

    Some of the numbers might not go up too much for the final update (like the country numbers). But this week’s sales should be higher across the board because sales always go up for Valentine’s Day since music is a popular gift. The acts that already had big Grammy bounces last week might ease off or stand pat compared to last week.

  36. Yeah, think a lot of it is Valentines day related cd purchases, plus it looks like a lot of Grammy winners have still stayed pretty high.

  37. It looks like Carrie and Daughtry also got a boost from the Super Bowl.

  38. It looks like Carrie and Daughtry also got a boost from the Super Bowl.

    Maybe but Carrie’s coming off a 65% increase last week that was much aided by the Grammys, the release of the Temporary Home video to itunes, and the $7.99 itunes sale for each of her albums. 14k of the 30k copies of Play On that were sold were digital (a 385% increase in PO’s digital sales) so with the itunes deal gone she’d have to make up for that somehow this week to stay steady. I’d be surprised if she did tbh.

    Edit: Other than Sade a lot of acts are already at or above HDD’s predictions from Friday so either most numbers won’t change or everybody had big weekends.

  39. Just read about the Kesha/Adam spotting. I must say, Kesha is not coming off very well in any of these write-ups. I think Adam’s friendship with her is sweet and all, but everything I’ve read sounds like she is terrible as a live performer, not to mention the whole “constantly drunk” persona of hers seems to rub audiences the wrong way left and right. On any entertainment site write up on her, I never seem to read a positive comment.

  40. have to say just wow at mz. helen folasade adu’s numbers so far… have been one of those fans patiently waiting these last 10 years for her to bring her silky smooth pop/jazz stylings back onto the charts and airwaves. norah jones and the other pretenders can now go stand in the corner, because the master is back, lol… good music and class never go out of style, and i’m pleased, as are her millions of sometimes impatient fans, to see her back in a big way… kudos to those idol alums still hanging tough in the top 50 so far… may they all have the kind of careers that will have made such a mark that they can take years off, and come roaring back like my girl sade… i also find her recent thoughts on her career to be rather profound…

    “I only make records when I feel I have something to say. I’m not interested in releasing music just for the sake of selling something. Sade is not a brand.”

  41. Don’t know if anyone’s mentioned it yet, but Mezhgan Hussainy is (I think) the make-up artist from American Idol, she’s been there since at least season 2, not sure about season 1. She’s the one who posted a picture of herself with Clay Aiken on her personal webpage and there was a huge brouhaha in clay land because he was standing behind her with her breasts in his hands. Pretty funny in retrospect. (Apparently she’s Simon’s girlfriend now.)

  42. Just read about the Kesha/Adam spotting. I must say, Kesha is not coming off very well in any of these write-ups. I think Adam’s friendship with her is sweet and all, but everything I’ve read sounds like she is terrible as a live performer, not to mention the whole “constantly drunk” persona of hers seems to rub audiences the wrong way left and right. On any entertainment site write up on her, I never seem to read a positive comment.

    I’m glad someone said that before me. That woman is completey trashy and I don’t understand what Adam sees in her. I don’t understand what America sees in her. Her song is not that good. Did I come off as judgemental? Tough shit.

  43. have to say just wow at mz. helen folasade adu’s numbers so far… have been one of those fans patiently waiting these last 10 years for her to bring her silky smooth pop/jazz stylings back onto the charts and airwaves.

    ggdoorsfan, thanks a lot for bringing that up!! I really do like Sade. What a silky voice! I’ll definitly buy this

  44. I’m glad someone said that before me. That woman is completey trashy and I don’t understand what Adam sees in her. I don’t understand what America sees in her. Her song is not that good. Did I come off as judgemental? Tough shit.

    LOL – I’m totally not afraid to say it :-) And judging from the online comments I read, I don’t think there’s much America sees in her. Gaga and Adam, from my POV, have been much more widely accepted, though admittedly neither is without their detractors either, or course. I think at this point she is coasting on the success of danceable, catchy tunes, rather than her “persona”. Tik Tok did get stuck in my head for awhile, but I’m more into the song than I’m into the singer.

    A huge pet peeve of mine is people who have a lot of success in music but can’t sing worth s**t. (cough*Taylor Swift*cough). That’s why Kesha will have a hard time making it to my good list, though I think on a “friend”-level she and Adam seem very cool together (kindred spirits and all).

  45. ggdoorsfan, thanks a lot for bringing that up!! I really do like Sade. What a silky voice! I’ll definitly buy this

    no prob mtlfan… as much as we kvetch and speculate over our idol centric faves, sade is one of those singers who just transcends all this rigamarole, shows what real artistry is, and how making consistently good music in spite of industry trends can lead to long term success, and have fans willing to wait 10 years for you to return, lol… i got my copy the other day, and she’s sounding fantastic… :)

  46. Hi I’m backfrom school :)

    I don’t see any Idol but Carrie in the top 50

  51. Edit is wonky but this has been a terrific January/February for album sales. The #50 album sold about 16K and that shows a nice overall % increase.

  52. OMAAAAAA
    I’M LIKE SRSLY DYING RN

    my friend (the one that alway hers Adam on the radio, not an Adam fan) just e-mailed me a YouTube link to cell-phone-gateeee and said ‘ LOL CHECK THIS OUTTT’

    I repeat,she’s NOT an Adam or AI fan at all

    It’s weird but this litle thing makes me soooi Fu$&king happpyyyyyyyyyyyy :)

  53. ainow: Despite the reports out there, AI Now confirms w/ @AdamLambert camp that “Fever” is not 3rd single. Still focusing on WWFM.

  54. A bit sad for Seth from my home town, who was cut. I hope he gets signed. I may attend that concert he will have to benefit autism, as my youngest was diagnosed with Asperger’s, which is considered “mild autism.”

  55. Adds for this week:

    Adam 15 total-7 top40, 2 HAC, 6 Canadian
    Kris 5 total-1 HAC, 1 AC, 1 top40, and 2 Canadian
    Danny 2 total-both country

  56. I think Danny had four, counting two non-monitored stations. Stations in Cleveland, San Antonio, Wheeling WV and one other I forget.

  57. And,as usual the glamberts ( you know what I mean by that name) are piling onto Rickey.no surprise.
    Now,happy new:

    jambajim’s interviewing Adam 2morro!!!!!!!!! I have a feeling well get something interesting!

    Plus,the glittery god tweets

  58. I have to say after reading the TopIdols blog a few days ago and rickeys today I am not really finding all Kris fans “laid back” or very charming… I don’t get it, people keep saying that Adam fans should let things go but some stuff I am reading from these people are ridiculous.

  59. He’s at a fashion show…

  61. Oh god that Vlog lollol. And w00t for more than 40 seconds! Between that and his new Twitter profile pic, I think DC is a little punchy hehe.

  62. Carrie PSA again during Westminster, big cheers and the man behind me exclaiming “beautiful!”

  63. The glove is amazing-I’m so happy I’m
    on the same side of the country as him,LOL

    Mj,are you going to make a thread for Adam at the blinds show?

  64. if adam loses audience impression tomorrow its bc z100 spun wwfm 11 times normal and 4 times acoustic, the acoustic doesnt count for mediabase

  65. Apparently some wrestler was compared to Adam,and peeps are freaking out…and vid from the fashion show…a lot of things on Twitter about this…

     
    thekillerqueen Just Gabriel being compared to Adam Lambert? Oh Jesus. Poor guy.

  66. also there are only like 33 stations left to add wwfm on top 40…14 are cumulus, if they never add him, how can they get away with blacklisting adam?? today they added rude boy by rihanna who went to adds last week or the week before and lady antellbellum who just went for adds…

  67. Sorry blonds not blinds

    LOL That reminds me of when somebody asked David Cook if he like blinds or brunettes.

  68. Good to see Cook in a vlog again. Totally pointless but hilarious nonetheless. But a couple of questions:

    1. What kind of diet involves eating taquitos?

    2. Why do so many of his vlogs involve my looking up his nostrils?

    ETA: His neverending belief in the possibility that the Kansas City Chiefs would one day not suck is very endearing. Poor, poor deluded Cook. He knew Kevin was just humoring him about KC someday winning the Lombardi trophy, but he was so happy nonetheless.

  69. Adam looks fantastic

    hot 99.5 in DC is cumulus :/

    seriously:

  70. A few pics of Adam at fashion week. The first one I think he looks like Kurt Russel http://twitpic.com/13oqsr

    ADam in front row. Really like this pic http://twitpic.com/13ovcu

    Oh and it looks like he recycled the cowboy tie he wore at the Grammy’s. Much better look with this outfit but still not crazy about it.

    Wow – loving that look of his. Gorgeous! He looks so contemplative too. lol.

  71. hot 99.5 in DC is cumulus

    Is it really? Argh. That’s why they suck so much :-(

  72. That vlog of Cook’s was cute. Love the beanie on him. And ha, for his following the five second rule and yes, his continuing sports nuttery. Which yeah, no, the Chiefs probably aren’t going to have a much better year next year. But it’s possible. I mean, not like they’re the Cubs and cursed. Yes, I feel badly for Cleveland teams, and the Lions, but still.

  73. mary did u see my comment earlier? st louis top 40 and hac added adam a long time ago. #9 now on top 40 playlist! kslz just isnt monitored which is weird bc it is the only station there and huge (plus its clear channel)

  74. Ah Mr Cook – yes I did very much enjoy your ‘completely pointless blog’. In fact, it’s ‘completely pointless blogs’ like this that keep me watching!

    Well, that and the music of course (though, if one were to be pernickerty about language, of course, that would be keeping me listening)…

  75. I didn’t see the headline thread for today, so will post here and hopefully someone will carry over when it’s available:

    Today’s updates are good! From Kworb at Pulse.
