‘Idol’ appearance boosts Ke$ha, Orianthi album sales

This week, the only American Idol-related albums in the Billboard Top 200 that actually saw sales gains were the two non-Idols that performed on the show.

And even Ke$sha’s week-over-week album-sales increase was minimal, according to Nielsen SoundScan: barely more than a thousand units over the previous week, giving her nearly 28, 000 for the week and pushing her close (but not quite) to the half-million mark for Animal.

Ranking the Best 5 Singles from Last Year’s American Idol Contestants

Almost a year after the Kris Allen coronation ceremony that shattered devoted Glamberts and Lamb Skanks across our sparkly nation, we’ve reached the point where seven American Idol contestants from season nine’s Top 10 have released singles. We’re still waiting for entries from Lil Rounds, Matt Giraud (of the popular Twitter hashtag #SignMattGiraud) and Megan Joy Corkrey (whose Myspace singles don’t seem finalized yet) to follow suit. In the meantime, let’s rank what we’ve heard and figure out the whole “Who was the real winner?” thing.

Producer: Miley Cyrus Not Too Young to Mentor on Idol

Is Miley Cyrus too young to be a celebrity mentor on American Idol? Show executive producer Ken Warwick says fans and skeptics alike should tune in to Tuesday’s Billboard No. 1 hits-themed show to see for themselves how the 17-year-old star proves age is just a number.

“Miley brought an amazing, youthful energy while working with the Idol contestants this past weekend, ” Warwick tells PEOPLE. “Her experience in the music industry and her advice in handling fame at a young age proved invaluable.”

On Wednesday’s results show, Miley will return to perform her hit song, “When I Look At You, ” and new couple Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato will sing their duet, “Make A Wave.”

After American Idol with Anoop Desai

WEST HOLLYWOOD, CA–Now in its ninth season, American Idol has broken some of the most recognizable names in pop music the world over: Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood and Jennifer Hudson to name a few.

But when each season ends, there are more losers than winners. Some decide they’ve had enough. Others, like Anoop Desai, decide to keep pursuing their dream and get to experience first-hand what it’s like to be a struggling–and, hopefully, working–artist in Los Angeles.

We hear: Carrie Underwood, Mike Fisher, Kristi Yamaguchi and more…

That country crooner Carrie Underwood, who is engaged to Ottawa Senators hockey hunk Mike Fisher, was asking Olympic ice princess Kristi Yamaguchi for some skating tips backstage at MGM Grand at Foxwoods the other night. Seems Mike gave Carrie a pair of skates and has been attempting to give her lessons. They are not going well . . . .

Boston Herald

Underwood is talented, so why the cheesey gimmicks?

The early rap on Carrie Underwood was that her amazing voice and undeniable beauty were sometimes undercut by a somewhat stilted stage presence.

That was understandable since Underwood had hit the music world in one big American Idol whoosh.

Tough crowd: Opening act Lifehouse redeems an otherwise mundane Daughtry concert

Chris Daughtry belted out some of his top hits, hoping to get fans riled up at last night’s show in Syracuse at the Oncenter War Memorial Arena. As soon as he emerged onstage, the lead singer of the band Daughtry pointed the microphone to the crowd, looking for an echo. It would have been the loudest sound heard that night, that is, if microphones could pick up the sound of apathy.

Kellie Pickler’s No ‘Idol’ Watcher

Just because ‘American Idol’ put Kellie Pickler on the musical map a few seasons ago doesn’t mean she’s keeping up with the show this season.

“I haven’t seen any of it, ” Kellie admits to The Boot. “I’m not a big TV watcher in general, though. I was so blessed to be a part of the show, but I’ve never been a reality show person as far as watching them goes. I just never have been … even though I was on one!”

Expect 8 Little Faces if Gosselin Lands in the Bottom 2

A whopping 24 million viewers tuned in for Monday’s premiere of ‘Dancing With the Stars.’ Much of that attention was, let’s face it, due to the curiosity of watching Kate Gosselin do her thing. Among those watching was PopEater’s very own Rob Shuter, who visited HLN’s ‘The Joy Behar Show’ last night to give his take on Kate’s so-called “disaster” of a night. Not only does Rob not think Gosselin will go home any time soon, he thinks “She’s gonna win this show.”

The ‘American Idol’ Judge Power Rankings: A night of total horror, Billboard No. 1s

t finally happened: This year’s contestants have pushed our four judges over the edge.

They’re just not the smartest bunch of hopefuls, you know? Asked to pick from among all the songs that have topped the Billboard charts, the contestants dusted off such relics as “I Heard It Through The Grapevine, ” Huey Lewis & The News’ “The Power of Love” and Aerosmith’s “I Don’t Want to Miss A Thing.” And then there was Paige… hoooo boy.

Quite rightly, the judges got frustrated fast.

And that means Simon’s back on top of this week’s rankings. (Note that all the judges are in the positive numbers this time. Being angry makes them — mostly — more discriminating!):

Crystal Bowersox and her ‘Bobby McGee’: Here’s why it’s better than Joplin’s

Carrie Underwood and Rock Band? Play On

Country fans already know and love Carrie Underwood and her “All-American Girl.” But ever since Rock Band decided to include that track on their latest batch of downloadable content, I wondered what Rock Band fans thought of the tune. The forums on their gaming site are active, to say the very least. One thread devoted to the new content had 350 comments the last time I checked. Most players seemed psyched for the songs from punk band X, British garage rockers Little Fish, original Kiss guitarist Ace Frehley and rock band OneRepublic. But since this is Underwood’s debut, a couple of commenters were unfamiliar with her and/or the song. But from what I could see, the overall take on her song was good: “This is super sweet.

Rolling Stones sales are a gas, gas, gas after ‘Idol’ week

Two nights of exposure on American Idol did wonders for the Rolling Stones catalog.

In the aftermath of Rolling Stones Week, overall album sales for the band went up 34 percent over the previous week, according to Nielsen SoundScan, with top-seller Hot Rocks 1964-71 increasing 79 percent week-to-week. Hot Rocks, the Stones’ biggest seller so far this year, includes nine of the 13 songs (including Jumpin’ Jack Flash, which David Cook performed) covered last week on Idol. Digital sales of Hot Rocks increased 116 percent over last week.

Nielsen SoundScan also says that overall Stones digital-track sales for the Stones rose 73.3 percent over the previous week, and overall digital tracks sales of the 13 performed songs increased 149 percent.

Kimberley Locke came in third place on second season of American Idol (behind Clay Aiken and Ruben Studdard). Since then, she’s appeared on Celebrity Fit Club, and will release her newest single, Strobe Light, on which she collaborated with Randy Jackson, April 6.

Tuesday night was interesting because of the song choices — they were not the best and maybe that’s because they are just getting into themed nights. I remember in Season 2, we struggled with some of the categories too.

Evanescence Offshoot Debuts New Songs Live

We Are the Fallen chose to debut new songs Tuesday night in a tiny London, England, student union before barely 200 people, the vast majority of them male, comfortably over 30, and as fond of leather and tattoos as they are of extended axe solos.

You may remember that We Are the Fallen is made up of the original members of multi-platinum Arkansas goth rockers Evanescence, minus singer and co-songwriter Amy Lee, who split over creative differences, retaining rights to the name Evanescence. Lee has been replaced by big-voiced 2008 American Idol finalist Carly Smithson.

‘American Idol’ Eliminations: Is Paige Miles Headed For A Long Trip Home?

Yet while Miles tanked, so did a slew of others contestants still hanging around the “Idol” stage. If there were any justice in the world, Tim Urban would have packed up his dimples and left us long ago. But he, Aaron Kelly and Katie Stevens seem to have deep fan bases devoted to keeping them on the show. And has there ever been a faster fall from front-runner to has-been than the rollercoaster plummet by Andrew Garcia?

That being said, I can see no way around it this stance: Miles will be the one packing her bags after Wednesday night’s elimination show. Two of our “Idol” experts — MTV’s Jim Cantiello and MJ Santilli of MJ’s Big Blog — are in agreement.

  1. Looks like WWFM might pass LLWD on the mediabase Pop chart by the time the next official one is released on Sunday night/Monday morning…

    13 11 KRIS ALLEN Live Like We’re Dying 5594 -103 -167 -82 29.087 -0.753
    14 14 ADAM LAMBERT Whataya Want From Me 5195 -6 174 -19 29.485 +0.099

  2. Safe travels to Kris and Katy, who head to Rwanda this morning. They will be in Africa for a week.

  3. Looks like WWFM might pass LLWD on the mediabase Pop chart by the time the next official one is released on Sunday night/Monday morning…

    The number 15 song is less than 300 spins away from WWFM with a bullet over 800, so it will probably pass it before WWFM passes LLWD. And at its current rate, the postion change between WWFM and LLWD will have more to do with LLWD falling than WWFM rising.

  4. Last night’s show…in fact this whole season is soooo disappointing for me! Other than Crystal, they all have pitch problems and that should not happen this late in the contest. How will they ever showcase these finalists at the finale….last year we had KISS, Queen etc…..just don’t think they will be able to put on that kind of show again…
    In my opinion, Miley was noneffective last night…..such a bad season! ARG!

  5. I really enjoyed reading Anoop’s interview. He’s pretty blunt about his experience on and after idol. I know they sign up for it but it must be so hard to take the criticism and especially Simon’s extremely mean comments. I hope his EP does well.

    I can’t believe Ke$sha sold any cd’s after that horrendous appearance. Yikes.

    Carrie should get skating lessons on her own. My dh tried to teach me to ski when we were dating and I’d get so mad that I’d fall on purpose, lol. I did much better when his friend taught me instead.

  6. walla walla washington station just played If I had you this morning lol so thats a good sign, although wwfm is #11 on their playlist

  7. Anoop’s interview was one of the most insightful and revelatory of any I’ve read by former Idols. Usually they’re so “Up with AI – rah!” and while Anoop doesn’t trash the show and talks in personal terms, he gives a really REAL feel for what it must be like’; the stress and emotional battery of being judged and how much of a bubble things are.

    On the last point, I wondered about this in the context of Lee Dewyze’ not mentioning Alex Chilton’s death. Maybe he just didn’t know. I didn’t know either until I read about it in these articles and I’m not living in a bubble.

  8. So great that Kris and Katy are going to Rwanda for TOMS shoes. I heard Kris say on the IICD house thing last night that Katy wasn’t able to make it to the house because she was sick after having seven vaccinations that day in preparation for their trip. Poor thing.

  9. walla walla washington station just played If I had you this morning lol

    Yeah…although it makes me nervous. I don’t want any plays until all the radio stations add it at the same time….get my drift! ;-)

  10. Where on earth (or below it) did David Cook record that clip? LOL, at first I thought it was a men’s room or a subway station. Very strange. Great message, though!

    Don’t forget the sunscreen, DC!!!

    I thought Cookie was in our women’s locker room at the “Y” where I workout. It looks just like this. No such luck.

  12. Hey-
    did you guys liten to Adam’s interview with Kid Kraddick?

    He said he would be performing on American Idol next month!!!

    Which has me thinking- maybe this is why he’s already confirmed IIHY as the next single- because maybe he’s planning on performing it on the Idol stage???

    Just a guess…

  13. The number 15 song is less than 300 spins away from WWFM with a bullet over 800, so it will probably pass it before WWFM passes LLWD. And at its current rate, the postion change between WWFM and LLWD will have more to do with LLWD falling than WWFM rising.

    I agree with this. In addition, the spin chart results have been somewhat erratic lately. At this time last week, I was certain LLWD would end up at #4 on the HAC chart, only to be passed by a song that had been stalling and got massive spins on the last couple of days before the week end numbers. LLWD fell quite a bit today, but had been seeing smaller decreases in days prior. WWFM saw a spin decrease today, but tomorrow there could be an increase. I’m hesitant to predict anything right now, other than saying it’s pretty clear that LLWD has peaked, and likely WWFM has peaked too.

  14. Don’t forget the sunscreen, DC!!!

    LOL, I had the same thought looking at that skin of his. Hee.

    hehe try not to get your hopes up to much..with idol you never know what they are gonna do. But when they announced that IIHY was the next single they said no release date cuz WWFM hadn’t peaked yet….No jinxing WWFM…as @glambert696969 would say HISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!

    lol just kidding

  16. Where on earth (or below it) did David Cook record that clip? LOL, at first I thought it was a men’s room or a subway station. Very strange. Great message, though

    I thought Cookie was in our women’s locker room at the “Y” where I workout.

    Adding to the strangeness… he’s going “hang out with some adolescent girls”… sorry, I’m 5, and I went, [tee hee]. Seriously, though, I checked out the UNF vid about GirlUp, and it’s a very cool project, but that wording… heh. It just came out funny.

  17. That video of Danny returning home to Milwaukee for the eye glasses promo and driving by the line waiting to get into Turner Hall was fun.

    I love his glasses; but he looked quite nice in the few clips without them- wish he would take them off once in a while for pictures at least! He usually only wears his contacts when he is playing sports.

  18. My dh tried to teach me to ski when we were dating and I’d get so mad that I’d fall on purpose, lol

    I learned to ski when my high school boyfriend took me to the top of the mountain and left. I did get down. Dh needs a kiss.

  19. I’m hesitant to predict anything right now, other than saying it’s pretty clear that LLWD has peaked, and likely WWFM has peaked too.

    I don’t know that you can make that conclusion – it’s possible on POP, but on HAC WWFM just picked up a ton of new adds this week. And that is a slower growing chart anyways.

  20. Safe travels to Kris and Katy, who head to Rwanda this morning. They will be in Africa for a week.

    a week in rwanda? wonder what kind of activities they have lined up for him. i think maybe a performance or two for the beneficiaries, but mostly advocacy work i think. similar to Haiti but with less hype. Rwanda used to be a really sad country but its slowly picking up its pieces. hope kris gets to see the actual issues on ground and creates awareness on the critical issues. safe trip for both!

  21. Kris & Katy are having travel issues. Maybe things will be smoother tomorrow.

    @katyallen @jambajim ok so where can we go that my pink sweatpants would be OK? (I don’t know if we’ll have our luggage)

    Mary102 – my comment was for the Top 40 format, not HAC. Both songs are still in an upward mode on HAC.

  23. Great interview with Anoop about his post-idol experience. Realism with less ego (ala Chris Sligh).

  24. If you live in Chicago don’t be surprised if you see Kris and Katy wandering around or at some restaurant — their flight difficulties are going to cause them to have to stay there overnight, instead of headign to Brussels as scheduled.

    Well, at least there are far worse places to get stranded. I wonder if their luggage is goign to be stranded with them or ehad on to Europe? My luggage has occasionally gone missing when I have flight delays.

  25. tiger92 and cakeygirl..YES…this is the reason why IIHY should be the next single. So much fun and (brought from another thread) you can see yourself on a beautiful summer day in your car with the windows wide open or the top down wailing “If I had you………….!!”

    Yep. I doubt any finales in the future would beat season 8. KISS and Queen performances with Adam were epic.

  36. Ugh larc,I hope not!!!!

    I want the focus to be on Adam.I know this will never happen,but this is my dream situation and I actually think it’d be a good idea
    Theme:songs from past idols :kelly,kris,melinda, whoever!!!! it’s be interesting and could be very creative
    Mentor-ADAM MITCHEL LAMBERT-i know this sounds tardy byt srsly i think he coild be a damn good mentor
    performer-adam f. lambert

    THAT WOULD BE THE BEST IDOL EVER

    and even being objective, not a fan , i think adam could EASILY be the BEST MENTOR EVER!!!!

  37. oh and i know people dont want adam to be assosciated with idol but i tjink if anything, its the other way around.This will make his sales rise so much!!! I bet he could make Even TIM soumd amazimg. no, thats not hyperbole

  38. Mentor-ADAM MITCHEL LAMBERT-i know this sounds tardy byt srsly i think he coild be a damn good mentor
    performer-adam f. lambert

    THAT WOULD BE THE BEST IDOL EVER

    Luv – you never cease to put a smile on my face!!!! I’m lori(smile) because of you tonight :-)

  39. oh and i know people dont want adam to be assosciated with idol

    Luv I don’t anyones said they don’t want Adam to be accosicated with Idol.

    And yes Adam could make a great mentor in the fact that he know how AI works, but also know how to use ones voice (all the vocal lessons he had when he was younger) as well as the stage experience. But there are quite alot of people that could do that if only when they got on the show they actually FRIKKEN MENTORED THE KIDS instead of just “smile and nod, smile and nod”…lol

    But yes Luv that would be fun to watch if only to get more Adam time.

  40. That video of Danny returning home to Milwaukee for the eye glasses promo and driving by the line waiting to get into Turner Hall was fun.

    That was fun to watch. I also liked the Fox43 piece.

    This is a little older but I hadn’t seen it before. Danny being interviewed the day after he was on AI9 and just before performing at the Mall of America. Fun to see toward the end the big crowd waiting and the enthusiastic reception he got.

    Danny has another new club date coming. Appears he is the lead act at a club called Wild Bill’s in the Atlanta GA area on April 23rd.

    Danny is performing tonight at a club in South Carolina, with Easton Corbin, Steel Magnolia and some others. It’s another fundraiser, I think. Forget which cause, maybe the St. Jude’s charity again. Quite a few people are tweeting from the scene. Most of them don’t seem to be AI Danny fans, more local country fans going to see the show. The one who’s most obviously an AI fan actually seems to be a big Adam fan who also likes Danny, aww.

    danny is really good live. Can’t get any good pics though.

    Ahh @dannygokey melts my heart when he belts out “What Hurts The Most”

    I’m sitting here looking at @dannygokey unreal he’s so close to me and he’s amazing!

    Omg danny gokey is awesome!

  41. Kris and Katy may not be stranded in Chicago overnight after all. Someone put on her MySpace page that Kris was on her flight that was heading to Germany. So either they didn’t miss their connection after all or they caught a later flight (or this person is mistakign some random dude for Kris)

  42. I think Adam would make a good guest mentor for Idol. But then again, I think deveral of theother former Idol contestants would make much better mentors than the people the producers are bringing in.

    But sorry, Luv, I don;t think even Adam could make Tim sound amazing. If you can’t sing, you can’t sing…

  43. Theme:songs from past idols :kelly,kris,melinda, whoever!!!! it’s be interesting and could be very creative
    Mentor-ADAM MITCHEL LAMBERT-i know this sounds tardy byt srsly i think he coild be a damn good mentor
    performer-adam f. lambert

    This is an idea I have had for a while now and it is a great idea on several levels. First, we all know that when a song is done on Idol it gets a sales bump. Well, who better to give a bump than former Idols? Second – it’s been established that this season Sucks (yes with a capital S). Love him or hate him, Adam generates a buzz and this season could use a buzz. Third – Who better to mentor these kids than someone that has been in their shoes? (truthfully, there are several previous Idols that could mentor) Finally, for selfish reasons I would just like to see him peform.

  44. After American Idol with Anoop Desai

    That is a really great interview, but of course we know that Anoop is very articulate. Good for him for keep on trying to make it. He is still very young, so why not ?
    Anybody getting to AI should be a strong person because they can easily break you.
    I’m a Kris fan and to think that with all the non exposure, placing him as a second performer (death spot), etc,etc, Kris just smiled and basically ignored all the judges and did whatever he wanted. And Simon thought that he had no confidence.

  45. Can anyone tell me the name of the song that plays when they do the review of the contestant voted off this season?

  46. Thanks Steph for ferreting out all the Danny info! You do a better job than his official site ;)

    Danny is performing tonight at a club in South Carolina, with Easton Corbin, Steel Magnolia and some others. It’s another fundraiser, I think

    Gee, what a surprise, yet another charity fundraiser!

    I wonder if this is the first time Easton and Danny will meet? I can’t help but wonder if Easton resents Danny stealing his thunder; Easton has the #1 country single right now and did great with album sales (although he didn’t break the record like Danny did), and is still selling really well. Not my kind of country (I only like VERY pop/rock country) but he has a nice voice.

  47. smeggs-

    I don’t wanna jinx anything- I’m just trying to put the pieces of the puzzle together… It’s his and his team’s decision if they want to release IIHY so quickly, and if they’ve already confirmed it, then there’s a good chance that by next month they’ll think it’s a good idea for him to sing it on Idol (I mean- I can’t imagine him singing WWFM on Idol after all this time it’s been out, can you?)

    But hey- I’ll be the happiest in the world if he just comes on and blows the roof off with Sure Fire Winners… sigh… I think it’s only dhunken and I that are still fantasizing about SFW ever getting a chance of exposure…

  48. mr
    I think alot of people are hoping that IIHY does good for summer so that they will release a fourth single, that being SFW. And I was just joking with you. I had that glambert696969 thing in my head and had to use it..lol you were just ther first person I came across.

    The thing with him performing on Idol is the timing. To get it in for April is sounds like he would be on Idol gives back which I don’t like cuz then most likely he will not be pimping any song of his :(…let alone his new single. But he keeps saying April so that leaves only 3 options, since he will be in UK on the last week of April. It will be Top 9, 8, or 7. Top 9 will be the night before his concerts in Canada I hope they don’t make him do that then head up there. Top 8 seems the most likely since Top 7 week is the week he leaves for UK again not quite sure on which day though (its also Idol gives back). He could still do it and leave at the end of the week, but not sure. He also keeps giving me the impression of late april which points to Idol gives back :( I mean Its a great thing I just want him to be able to pimp his new single. Thats hard to do when your trying to help charity.

    I was really hoping for a Top 3 results show gig but I guess not. And since they don’t have the runner up reform twice or on the finale I am kinda bummed about the timing. I just think pimping a new single in only a week or two seems early since I think WWFM still has some leggs.
    Anywho thats all IMHO and YMMV and all that jazz

  49. Smeggs-
    For the chance that you’re still here and not on some other newer threads by now-

    Firstly- I LOVED your HSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS
    And even though I’m not a “Glambert” myself (never liked getting myself numbered, lol) I love Glambert69696969- he rocks!!

    Secondly, I’ve never seen Idol gives back… is that a special show with footage from charity work, or is it performances by past idols which the profits for go to charity?

    Anyway- I just had an epiphany- I want Adams week on Idol to be show-tunes week, and I want him to perform “Aquarius” from Hair on the results show (yes- and as luv requested- I wouldn’t object if they let him mentor the contestants)- now that would be EPIC!! That’s a song only a big voiced diva like bb can pull off, and it’s from a fab. musical that bb’s actually performed in, and- he himself is Aquarius!!
    I agree that pimping a new single now might not be a good idea…

    Are people really talking about SFW (Sure Fire Winners)?? Because I only hear talk of SW (Sleepwalker) as the next one after IIHY…
