Idol Headlines for 02/27/12 – The Evening Edition

Crystal Bowersox now calls Pacific Northwest home – She’s in “album mode” musically, writing songs and flying back and forth to Santa Fe to record demos with producer/songwriter/musician Jono Manson who has worked with Blues Traveler, Joan Osborne, and Steve Earle, among numerous others. Noting that she generally has been writing songs pretty much on her own since she was 14, Bowersox said she has “super songwriting chemistry” with Manson and the plan is to finish 16 songs and then winnow that number down to about 12 for an album that will be released this summer. – Read more at the Toledo Blade

Jennifer Lopez’s Stylist Denies Dress Malfunction At Oscars – “The Oscar dress was custom-made for Jennifer by designer Zuhair Murad.

“American Idol’s” niceness problem – Two big things happened on “American Idol” last week. First, the top 24 contestants were chosen. They were a largely bland, unsurprising bunch, selected by one of the most toothless panels of judges on TV, but they’ll still be the ones viewers will vote on for the rest of the season.

Steven Tyler Says Aerosmith Is ‘Back’ on New Album – Steven Tyler can currently be seen each week on American Idol, but the very busy singer is still finding time for the day job that made him an icon. “We’ve been in the studio for the last month,” Tyler says of Aerosmith. Tyler was in great spirits when Rolling Stone ran into him last night at Elton John’s 20th annual Academy Award viewing party. He has good reason to be, with both Aerosmith and Idol going well. “Both things, we’re nailing them,” he said. Read more at
