Idol Meter update: Crystal’s on top, Casey bottoms out

Crystal Bowersox sets a new high score in today’s Idol Meter, earning a 75 for a performance of The Impressions’ People Get Ready that “featured no guitar or piano but one a cappella verse and even an emotional breakdown, ” writes Ken Barnes. Casey James, who previously had the season’s top score (71 for Jealous Guy), plummets to the bottom of the Meter, his -13 score the result of “an unlucky leadoff position, an unenthusiastic reaction from the judges, and an unexciting, though competent, Fleetwood Mac cover.”

‘Glee’ exclusive: Madonna sequel in the works!

Glee is heading back into the groove with Madonna.

The afterglow from last night’s smashing (and highly rated) Madge-themed episode has barely dimmed and already series creator Ryan Murphy is talking to the Material Girl about a sequel!

Murphy confirms that he’s in discussions with M’s camp and that “Madonna and her people are into it and want it to happen.” The follow-up would air early next season and feature six more songs from the pop icon’s immense catalog of hits. (There’s talk that fans might be able to vote on which tracks should be used via a poll on Fox.com.)

The End of the ‘Idol’ Era

This week Alicia Keys mentored the American Idol contestants for “Idol Gives Back, ” but America really wanted to see Kate Gosselin get egg on her face during her “Breakfast Club” foxtrot. In what’s starting to become a regular occurrence, Dancing With the Stars beat American Idol in the ratings—20 million people watched Monday’s episode of Dancing, compared with 19.1 million for Tuesday’s Idol. None of this should be surprising, given that Dancing has stolen everything but its sequins from the show it toppled. The three judges (male, female, crotchety British guy), the voting, and, this week, the movie “theme” night. Idol once had Quentin Tarantino as a guest judge; Dancing had two contestants dress up as John Travolta and Uma Thurman from Pulp Fiction. Paula Abdul—oops, I mean Carrie Ann Inaba—even told Pamela Anderson that she could be on Broadway. Excuse me? Can she sing? Idol has long been the country’s biggest launching pad for semitalented Broadway stars. Then again, the producers of Hair should be thrilled to have Pam on board, too.

Crystal Bowersox’s ‘People Get Ready’: Best ‘American Idol’ Performance Ever?

All season long, the judges on “American Idol” have been urging season nine’s lackluster finalists to search for a song that will give them their “moment.” Those breakout performances have been in short supply this year, but on Tuesday night one of the show’s only stand-out singers, Crystal Bowersox, provided one that could very well go down in the annals of the show’s all-time greats.

‘American Idol’ Reject Katie Stevens Finally Puts Connecticut On The Map

“American Idol” contestant Katie Stevens had a lofty goal on the show. In an early episode, the 17-year-old from Middlebury, Connecticut, told America she hoped to put her home state on the map.

The bubbly teen stopped by MTV News (along with fellow eliminated “Idol” Andrew Garcia) to chat about that now-famous Connecticut quote and much more.

Did you know that Katie taught herself to play the piano and the guitar? You’d never think it from her “Idol” run. “My whole thing is I had, they called it ‘David Archuleta Syndrome’ because David Archuleta would always go into rehearsals saying ‘I can’t play the piano.’ And he really could!” she said. “And that was me. I was like, ‘I can’t do this, I’m gonna go on stage and I’m gonna mess up immediately and I’m gonna flop and not focus on my voice.’ But I’m gonna play the piano with ‘Let It Be’ on tour.”

Kelly Clarkson Tries and Fails to Snuff Out Cigarette Controversy

But the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids isn’t buying Clarkson’s “for the fans” spin.

She “has let down her fans and chosen to be a spokesperson for the tobacco industry” by going on with the show, says CTFK spokeswoman Marina Carter. “In doing so, Ms. Clarkson is allowing her name, image and talent to be used to promote cigarettes to Indonesian youth.

We again call on Ms. Clarkson to withdraw tobacco industry sponsorship of her concert and to demand the removal of any tobacco-branded advertising and promotions associated with it.”

Your move, Kelly.

‘Idol’ Guest Blog: Kim Caldwell Seeks Inspiration From The Top 7

Despite the fact that pretty much all of the American Idol judges were calling Season 9 a “girls year, ” we’re down to the Top 7 and we’ve only got two girls left in the competition. And we’ve got a bad feeling that this is the week one of the ladies is voted off (and it probably won’t be the female who wanted off the show).

  1. Glee is heading back into the groove with Madonna.

    Hmmm. It seems to have been great for ratings, but from all my Gleek friends, they all thought it was the worst episode of the series thus far. And from everyone I know who hadn’t previously watched the show, and who turned in just to see what the big deal was? to a one, they didn’t like it, or the show. Of course this is just my personal experience, so I am attaching zero meaning for it beyond that. I just found it interesting.

    And hee to DWTS beating AI again. Though with Kate Gosslin gone, that might end and starting next week.

    This is the only way popularity bars work for me, I’m at work now though and can’t check itunes. I use a mac at home, but this should work if you have itunes 9

    I have to close itunes. Then open this link in your browser, it should launch itunes. The view should change any you should able to add popularity bars back. Right click on top bar I think or use one of the menus

    THANK YOU!!!

    WWFM is all by it’s lonesome- DeRulo and Borderline not too close!

    Sorry- don’t know how to copy and paste that chart, otherwise I would bring it here. Thanks for trying smegs :)

  3. Your welcome! I credit Pulse, a few weeks ago they posted it. Too bad it’s not a permanent setting.

  4. Studio57 so looking at the #9 song it looks like WWFM is slightly more popular…does that mean when they update the chart WWFM will move to #9??

  5. ‘AMERICAN IDOL’ BUZZMETER

    Ack! Five other experts join you in predicting an Aaron boot tonight MJ. Now I am seriously reconsidering putting all my pool points on Big Mike. What to do, what to do? I’ve only got 45 minutes to decide!

  6. The “Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids” person isn’t factoring in cultural differences. Kelly isn’t being sponsored in the US by a cigarette company. It’s in Jakarta, where the beliefs and attitudes about cigarette smoking are different than in America. And, as was astutely pointed out in the other thread about this issue, it’s likely the Jakarta promoter put the sponsorship deal together. Kelly isn’t negatively influencing Jakarta kids because their attitudes are shaped by their culture. And she’s not influencing American kids because they won’t know about it anyway.

    Basically what I mean is: Shut up “Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids” lady.

  7. Spring Daze is going have a little American Idol glitter with a performance by Anoop Desai on the Sertoma stage.

    haha I find this kinda funny cuz didn’t Anoop not want to wear the glittery face makeup for the Britney Ford shoot?? hahahaha

  8. Ack! Five other experts join you in predicting an Aaron boot tonight MJ. Now I am seriously reconsidering putting all my pool points on Big Mike. What to do, what to do? I’ve only got 45 minutes to decide!

    I split mine, I’m chicken shit.

  9. sr4- I used to have it on my itunes but when I updated it the last time, I lost it.

    Smegs- Are you looking at the right song? WWFM looks to be all by itself and Rude Boy and Need You Now look like they are close to each other.

    And is MTV serious with asking if Crystal’s performance was the best EVER? Maybe this year, but EVER? Come on!

  10. so excited that wwfm is officially a top 10 hit on billboard hot 100. yay for adam!!

  11. From the tweets, it sounds like the raffle to win to meet Kris at this watch party is more than a little disorganized in the way it is being run

    Big Yay for Adam!!

    Make it a double!! :)

  13. High-School Student Aaron Kelly it is. I just switched all my points to him.

  14. Smegs- Are you looking at the right song? WWFM looks to be all by itself and Rude Boy and Need You Now look like they are close to each other.

    I got the same results as Studio57 Smeggs. WWFM is all by itself at #10 #9 is not close enough to catch and #11 is too far to catch WWFM at this point I would say it should be #10 at least until tomorrow and who know the Glee song may start to fade and it may go back up to #9 in a day or two. (Wishful thinking)

  15. From the tweets, it sounds like the raffle to win to meet Kris at this watch party is more than a little disorganized in the way it is being run

    Well that’s too bad for his fans. Boo. Well in the end it will no doubt work out and some of his fans will get a nice treat.

  16. yay for Adam’s single!! I reeeeeally hope his next single does as well as this one…guess we shall see…cant wait for the video :)
    he finally tweeted today that hes going to the UK to keep promoting his album…looking forward to some great performances.

  17. haha I see my bad I didn’t highlight the right one hahahaha I guess I was so excited I wasn’t paying enought attention…my eyes are alittle watery today I wonder why….

    What is Adam’s middle name? Is it Mitchel?

    No. It’s F’ing, lol.

    And thanks Kanadie!

  19. Too me its so funny to see Adam and Jason at the top, so totally opposites!!!

  20. Regards to Glee. Couple of People at work who are Geeksters or whatever they call them, didn’t like the show either. Especially the Vogue video. Nothing different about the video except new faces in it. They should have/could have changed it up a bit. It was like a karaoke video. Personally I don’t care for this school choir type show. But I think Lea Michelle is absolutely wonderful. I like Cris Coffer too.

  21. oh gosh, i hope russell brand doesn’t ruin the dignity of IDOL GIVES BACK. i personally think he’s trashy.

  22. It’s too bad Aaron is predicted to be booted. He’s not the greatest, but he deserves to stay over Tim. I don’t think Aaron is brilliant, but he seems serious about having a career.

    Congrats to Adam, but I don’t see how people can give him all the credit, when he got the huge Idol pimpage and the resultant media attention. TPTB can’t have him on two nights of Idol every time he has a single that isn’t selling all that great.

    Also, the posts from those of his fans who encourage multiple-buying strategies were all over the internet, and these strategies doubtless had something to do with these numbers.

    I would like to know what his numbers would have been without all of the above, because that would more or less represent his actual abilty to sell this song, as an artist who has to rise or fall on his own merits and his own popularity with the real buying public.

  23. TPTB can’t have him on two nights of Idol every time he has a single that isn’t selling all that great.

    Huh, because I thought the single was nearing platinum before he guested on Idol. 864,000 right? That’s hardly not selling well! LOL.

  24. Huh, because I thought the single was nearing platinum before he guested on Idol. 864,000 right? That’s hardly not selling well! LOL.

    And today there is nearly a million people that were forced to purchase that single. TPTB should be ashamed.

  25. Adam is #10 on Billboard for one reason only: He gave an epic performance on American Idol. This same opportuinty was afforded Danny,Diddy,Ruben,Allison,Jason Derulo,Carrie, BEP, Kesha, Orianthi ( tonight is HER 2nd appearance) and Usher this year. Kris is said to be unveiling his single on the finale. The mentoring was just the cherry on top for his fans- it didn’t sell his record.

  26. TPTB can’t have him on two nights of Idol every time he has a single that isn’t selling all that great.

    WWFM
    Week 20: 4/11/10 52,000 (-7 percent, 864,000 total)
    Week 21: 4/18/10 100,000 (+98 percent, 964,000 total)
    Week 22: Platinum

    LLWD
    Week 20: 57,000 (805,716)
    Week 21: 66,000 (871,000)
    Week 22: 63,989 (935,389 total)
    Week 23: 64,000, (999,000)
    Week 24: 57.000 (1,005,600)

    Looks like he was doing as well as the other guy. TpTB might have made Platinum go 2 weeks earlier but IMO they both look pretty equal to me.

  27. Adam’s single was probably going to go platinum in the next two weeks with or without AI. Obviously, his great performance just shot him ahead extra quick.

  28. Both Kris and Adam have done well for themselves.

    I don’t expect WWFM to continue with good sales & I hope RCA releases the next single pronto.

    oh gosh, i hope russell brand doesn’t ruin the dignity of IDOL GIVES BACK. i personally think he’s trashy.

    You are too kind in your description – he personally makes my skin crawl and not in a good way :(

  30. TPTB can’t have him on two nights of Idol every time he has a single that isn’t selling all that great.

    I wonder if statements like these are bait, or just uninformed? I mean before the AI appearance Adams WWFM was the top selling single from an idol for 3 weeks prior.

    don’t expect WWFM to continue with good sales & I hope RCA releases the next single pronto

    I disagree…considering WWFM is holding strong on iTunes I would expect 75K next week and probably another 200K total over the next 4-5 weeks.

  31. Also, the posts from those of his fans who encourage multiple-buying strategies were all over the internet, and these strategies doubtless had something to do with these numbers.

    IIRC, (and forgive me if I got it wrong) but it has been said by Kirsten (who is not an Adam fan, by ANY means) that such people are a small percentage of total sales. And yes, every fanbase has it’s share that does that, not just Adam fans. Not to mention the song has been doing well for weeks, so doubtful that is just Adam fans buying all those copies of the song. It has had some decent airplay, decent sales are a natural result of that, as they are for other artists. And that is especially true when a single is selling in the top 10 range on iTunes. That isn’t just some fanbase somehow manufacturing it with the few amounts of multiple buys that make something like that, happen.

    IIRC, when Brooke White appeared on the show last year and got into the top 10 of iTunes, she ended up selling a lot of singles as a result. So I doubt it was all those crazy Brooke White fans buying multiple copies then that made it so. Just like it’s doubtful that crazy Adam fans made it in the top ten of iTunes when he appeared on the show. Add in Adam’s decent airplay to that, and seems pretty straightforward to me. YMMV, of course.

  32. Congrats Adam!!! So happy for him & great performance on Idol!!!

  33. Kanadie – can’t quote right now. With regards to ongoing sales I mean to say thAt they won’t continue indefinitly at 50k. He’ll continue on for a few weeks but now that it had peaked on the radio and he has seen this huge bump it’s time to move on a d announce an add date.

  34. Forgive my ignorance, but what does YMMV mean? I’ve been trying to figure it out for weeks!

  35. Love Russell Brand, what will he be doing? It’s exciting because it’ll be a brand new audience for him for the most part.

  36. Forgive my ignorance, but what does YMMV mean? I’ve been trying to figure it out for weeks!

    Your Mileage May Vary

  37. Its also great that Adam’s remix CD debuted #1 on the dance chart! This is a great way for him to move into his summer concert series.

    IMHO= I Must Have Overthetop
    hehe

  39. Congratulations to Adam, finally getting some of the success he has deserved for a long time. I am really happy for him.

  40. Forgive my ignorance, but what does YMMV mean? I’ve been trying to figure it out for weeks!

    Your mileage may vary.

    Meaning “to each his own”- your opinion may be different from mine.

  41. Congrats to Adam, but I don’t see how people can give him all the credit, when he got the huge Idol pimpage and the resultant media attention. TPTB can’t have him on two nights of Idol every time he has a single that isn’t selling all that great.

    He got a huge AI pimpage because he was fantastic.

  42. Without the help of the media, the head honcho from Idol, and even this blog, where would Adam be. I mean the breaking news thing posted on MJ and is from Twitter is commical. It is too bad that others from the idol winners didn’t receive the same treatment.

  43. oh gosh, i hope russell brand doesn’t ruin the dignity of IDOL GIVES BACK. i personally think he’s trashy.

    Nope, that honor (ruining the dignity) went to Idol itself when it gave Octomom the stage. WTF?!

    Adam gets credit because Adam is amazing. NGL though, I did wonder how much $$ P!nk (love her, btw) is getting from WWFM sales. lol

    sorry thats my dog, I haven’t let him out to pee in months…been to busy here following Adam :)

  45. He got a huge AI pimpage because he was fantastic.

    There was no pimpage-he was just amazing as mentor and performer and earned these accomplishments.

  46. I just luv Kris’s dry humor and sarcasm. He is just so cute sometimes – especially with his “quality over quantity” comment in this article. He just keeps em coming. Just luv him.

    http://bit.ly/aasK2h

  47. Kris’ was for charity and David came on to save RS night as the S9 kids couldn’t rock for anything.

    Kris will be on the finale, hopefully rocking his next single and didn’t I read that David would be on again somewhere?

  48. Look at where WWFM is now and I am already worried about why they haven’t released the next single!

    where is WWFM now in itunes?

  49. They gave Adam an opportunity to mentor and sing. He could have sucked monkey balls at it and fallen on his face (again). This time he didn’t and he’s getting a boost. Glad for it.

    Adam was very fortunate to have another (big) national PR chance after the AMAs.
    I think he did a good job and deserved his Idol bump.

    I was disappointed they didn’t show footage of Kris’s IGB efforts- he deserved mention for all his efforts. They probably ran out of time. I hope his event went well tonight.

    I was happy that Danny got a funny shout out from George Lopez; that warmed my heart!

  50. All of Kris fans should celebrate his good heart and for being socially aware and relevant….Go Kris

  51. I was disappointed they didn’t show footage of Kris’s IGB efforts- he deserved mention for all his efforts. They probably ran out of time. I hope his event went well tonight.

    They didn’t? I think he deserves mention too. Kris has done a lot in the spirit of IGB.

  52. With all the criticism that Adam got from fans of every idol winner and runnerup, prior to mentoring and performing, this all could have have been a major disaster for Adam. He could have been mediocre to bad, and he would have ended up the joke of all seasons. Fortunately, he was much better than expected and got rave reviews from critics; thus, the bump. Only Adam could do this for himself. Not the fans nor TPTB.

  53. Kris was getting a lot of pimpage for his Ford commercial being shown about half dozen times (or more) per week. Not only that, but he was getting beaucoup bucks for that.

    So, Ford commercials every half hour, already an appearance, and guaranteeded the highest rated show of the season, the finale… What more can Kris fans ask for?

  55. sr4mjc I posted some stuff over in the Kris UN thread from today.I posted one were he just arrive at The UN watch party and it sounds like the people there were really excited to see him.Don’t worry alot of people really love him.Am really glad am not a big fan of anyone this season. I never knew how much the fans of other Idols didn’t get along with other fans,the arguments are something else sometimes. How do people not pull there hair out.

  56. So, Ford commercials every half hour, already an appearance, and guaranteeded the highest rated show of the season, the finale… What more can Kris fans ask for?

    Oh I didn’t mean he should have been live on the show or anything. I’m not a Kris fan; but thought it would have been nice to show a short clip of all he’s done; he really has done a lot of hands on charitable work.

    Heck, being a Danny fan, I would have liked to see a segment on Danny’s food pantry efforts in Vegas too! Knew that wasn’t going to happen, but at least George Lopez mentioned him, lol.

    But they can only squeeze so much into one show, I guess.

  57. Interesting I just went to go check if they posted any new tour dates for Adam and AO says

    I wonder what they are going to do? It can’t possibly get anymore sparkely can it?

  58. this all could have have been a major disaster for Adam. He could have been mediocre to bad, and he would have ended up the joke of all seasons. Fortunately, he was much better than expected and got rave reviews from critics; thus, the bump. Only Adam could do this for himself. Not the fans nor TPTB.

    ITA. Congrats to Adam on all of his achievements. He is so deserving.

  59. Is Adam superstar yet? Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    Yes…A Global Superstar in fact! :)

    I’m guessing it has to do with the new fan club he has been talking about which is on its way!

  61. Kanadie
    oh did you hear something about it being launched?? that would be awesome maybe we can diminish the scalpers

  62. What more promotion could be given to Kris, and what opportunities? He has been getting more promotion and as many opportunities as Adam, and probably matched what Cook got.

    Oh, perhaps a teeny weeny little thing like an opportunity to promote his OWN music on a show he WON last year? That’d be a good start!

    Would you have liked Kris to trade with Adam, and Kris have done the show last week and Adam do the finale on the big stage with the highest rating for the season?

  65. Would you have liked Kris to trade with Adam, and Kris have done the show last week and Adam do the finale on the big stage with the highest rating for the season?

    why Kris needs to trade? He was the winner. He should have the privilege to be the first to choose any opportunities available to all S8 alums.

  66. BeckyMD:

    why Kris needs to trade? He was the winner. He should have the privilege to be the first to choose any opportunities available to all S8 alums.

    So Kris should have had the option to have performed last week AND the finale. OK.

  67. I’ll be happy to call him a global superstar when he actually is one

    My comment on the previous page about Adam being a Global Superstar was a completely snarky comment directed at another snarky comment…can’t we just have some fun and not take things so seriously? :)

  68. Would you have liked Kris to trade with Adam, and Kris have done the show last week and Adam do the finale on the big stage with the highest rating for the season?

    It sounds pretty much like Adam is bucking for both, so what’s the trade? Do you know something that the rest of us don’t? Is Kris scheduled, with certainty, for the finale? Do you know whether, if he is, he will again be sharing the stage with Adam? I’ve heard nary a word about the finale.

  69. Is Adam superstar yet?

    Yes, he is. :) It has been so much fun to be an Adam fan today and last week! I’m looking forward to even better days and weeks!

  70. Is Kris scheduled, with certainty, for the finale?

    I think so. He is supposed to pass the crown.

  71. Do you know whether, if he is, he will again be sharing the stage with Adam?

    What’s so wrong about sharing the stage with Adam(if, big if, Adam’s indeed going to be on the finale)? I mean as a S8 winner, Kris can easily upstage the runner up and show the world once again who the true winner is? Right?

  72. Kris did have choices. He wanted to go to Haiti right after the earthquake but per the encouragement of Idol he waited to do it with their backing to make a bigger impact and sang Let it Be on Idol specifically for the purpose of fundraising for Haiti. That is who Kris is and 19 promotes him according to who he is and the type of performer he is. They will promote him as the winner on the finale because that is who he is.

    Adam is promoted by 19 for the performer he is. He deserved the privelige of being promoted on Idol this year. David Archuleta was on Idol last year. New rules were not made for Adam. His gig as a mentor was a promotion, yes, but also a direct result of his being articulate, his years of experience perfoming, and, bottom line, his ability to bring in the viewers.

    They are different so they will be promoted differently from now on because the type of performers they are makes a difference in what type of promotion will work.

  73. Kris will be at the finale. Who knows if Adam will show up? Kris and Adam are friends; it’s us their fans that are comparing their careers. They are such totally different artists and both are so extremely busy, it makes me dizzy to read about their day to day events. It’s hard to compare sales of today with sales of yesteryear with the terrible economy and rampant cd piracy worldwide. Kris has a platinum plus single, Adam is approaching platinum. Both are doing very well. Adam has said he got what he wanted and then some. He didn’t win, but he’s very happy. Kris won and he is happy. Both think their fans are the greatest in the world. I’d love it if all of us agreed to get along, BUT it would be sooooo boring here. So carry on. :) I LOOOOOOOVE THIS BLOG.

  74. yey for Adam :D happy, happy day
    good for Kris, his single is still selling well :)
    but I think it’s high time they give him a new one to play, pretty sure he’s is going to sing in on AI finale, but they should start putting it out there earlier, so that he can get a nice bump

  75. They are different so they will be promoted differently from now on because the type of performers they are makes a difference in what type of promotion will work.

    Ahhh, right, giving Kris an opportunity to present his own music to the buying public, the eager AI audience who voted him as the WINNER last year, couldn’t possibly work. LMAO!

  76. It sounds pretty much like Adam is bucking for both, so what’s the trade? Do you know something that the rest of us don’t? Is Kris scheduled, with certainty, for the finale? Do you know whether, if he is, he will again be sharing the stage with Adam? I’ve heard nary a word about the finale.

    Did Adam tell you he is bucking for both? It is traditional for the previous season’s winner to go on the finale. I haven’t seen the paperwork, but I would say with 80% certainty Kris will be on the finale, the big stage, all the hoopla, huge ratings. He should get twice the bump that Adam got from last week’s middle of the season show on the small stage.

  77. He should get twice the bump that Adam got from last week’s middle of the season show on the small stage.

    I wouldn’t think so, the focus is on the Idol winner. I don’t know historically how it goes with performer sales but there’s an awful lot going on at the finale… there are a lot of distractions. Again, I don’t know for sure, but I don’t think that I would expect someone to get a huge bump from the finale.

  78. I am a major fan of both Kris and Adam. Both of them are obviously very talented. Kris won, Adam lost and will always be the loser.

    I love Adam’s theatrics and showy performances but I also love Kris’ loving, generous spirit. Kris donated the money from the sales of Let it Be to Haiti. That is the reason he didn’t sing his own song on Idol. He was doing a good deed and, for me, Kris’ good heart is what makes him extra special. I am glad Idol helped him do what he wanted to do.

  79. I think if Taylor Hicks got to perform on the Finale, who from what I heard TPTB didn’t want at all, then they would absolutly have Kris perform. Since he is a very talented artist, all around nice guy…oh yeah and he won. Not seeing where any Adam fans have said he wouldn’t be performing or shouldn’t be performing. It will great timing for him to get his new single (tap tap tap Jive come on tap tap tap) and will help pimp it infront of tons of people.
    *by the way not compairing Kris to Talyor or anyone else

  80. “so the sane and reasonable people can be left in peace”

    lol I don’t think any of us here are still sane and reasonable since S8.
    I blame my insanity on sleep deprivation and a lackluster S9.

    ksgirlfordc:
    Somehow, my dear, I don’t think you are the one that’s going to be receiving that b word. :)

  81. “pretty sure he’s is going to sing in on AI finale, but they should start putting it out there earlier, so that he can get a nice bump”

    Yep- Kris has said he will be singing his new single on The AI Finale & hopes it will be out well before that . So here’s hoping for for the announcement in the next couple if weeks!!
    I haven’t read much of what has been said on this thread but from the little I have it seems that old arguments from all sides are rearing their head!! They make me LOL as we’ve been there done that!! Also obviously my definition of “Superstar” is very different to others
    [ like selling millions of albums & having been around for many years to gain worldwide appeal- eg Elton John, U2, Paul McCartney for starters!!] Its just very funny to me how one can be blinded to reality when you are so focussed on one artist!!
    Anyway some of the comments are so OTT that to me this is a great comedy thread!! [ void of all reality’] So go on keep entertaining us!!

  82. I have a question. Last year, didn’t Cook appear on Idol twice? Once he sang his own single and the second time he sang another of his own songs, with the sales going to charity.

    Is Kris doing the same thing this year? He chose to sing Let It Be as the song he wanted to use to donate to charity and on the finale he will sing his own song? Did he have to sing LIB? Could he have chosen a song off of his album for the charity single, or was it decided to sing a well known song for the show. I don’t know. But it appears he will get two appearances, just like Cook did.

    Anyway, I think Cook has been treated very well as Archie as they both came back this season with no new material to promote. It was nice that they got to go on there to remind people they were out there. Blake’s only been on once since his season. He really should be on this year. He does have an album to promote, and he was the runner up in Season 6.

  83. Am I the only one that cares that Blake isn’t getting another shot to appear on Idol to promote his number one dance hit? tap, tap, tap, is this thing on. :)

  84. lol Judes, it’s so entertaining, I practically live here. Work and real life take second and third place to MJs for me. I get so used to seeing the same people here all the time, it’s like a second family and like a real family, there must be disagreements and accord :)

  85. and anyone owning less than 50 copies of AL’s CD knows that.

    Really? Do we have to go down that road again. I own 51 copies… and I am quite aware.

    Crap I feel like I let Adam down I have only owned 2 compies of FYE. I had to buy the second one cuz my mom “barrowed” my first one and never gave it back…..damn I wonder how many I can buy after I cash in my 401k…er wait I need that to follow Adam around all summer and make sure all his concerts sell out…..OH THE HUMANITY WHAT AM I TO DOOOOO

    Don’t cash in the 401K… I could probably part with one of my 51 copies if I really had to. :-)

  88. I am totally with you Undercooked….lol he is my other Favorite

    Ah, it’s good to know Blake still has some fans kicking! I know Blake isn’t successful in the way of Kelly or Carrie, but I do think he will have a long career, especially as a writer and producer. I hope they have him on before the season is over. He does write the blog on Idol Chatter and I think he does a good job. I would love to see him perform in the next few weeks on a results show.

  89. Bet you anything Adam’s green lasers were Muse-inspired. They looked exactly like the ones used at their Resistance concert I went to two weeks ago.

    (Oh, and they didn’t look like cheap theatrics then either. Just an atmospheric, theatrical touch.)

  90. I only have one copy. Am I a bad fan?

    Well technically I only have one to unless my mom actually returns the one she has…which I don’t think i gonna happen. I think as punishment for being such bad fans we should go and watch Adam’s Fever performance from GLAAD to show us the errors of our ways.

  91. Uh oh undercooked if Blake performs on idol I might actually have to watch another results show…..its a good thing I am willing to make sacrifices…come on TPTB bring on Blake I can take it

  92. thanks cmw, you’ve made my morning, may I include myself in the witty, intelligent and good humored group?

  93. So there can’t be hate crimes against white, young males? If, say, a guy beats the shit out of a white guy just because the white guy is a white guy… that’s ok? Not a hate crime? If an employer specifically does not hire a young, straight, white male because he doesn’t like young, straight, white males… that’s not discrimination?

    i heard years ago a white young guy sued Mich Univ. for administration discrimination and last year white young firemen claimed being discriminated in promotion. I know them because these cases were reported, and they got reported because they were rare.

  94. well, if it’s a box that I like, why not :D
    I sure prefer being called witty and good humored than stupid and miserable, lolz ;)

  95. I cannot put myself in this box, certainly not the intelligent one, cuz how do you set one’s avatar here? anyone? help?

  96. well, way to go, GreenHippo, you just burst my bubble, I don’t know how to set avatar either, sh***t, does that mean I am excluded from the witty box? :(

  97. Thanks cher! Wow, it sure is getting deep in here!

    First, I just want to say thanks to smeggs, Kanadie, agathe, and GreenHippo for injecting humor into the conversation, cuz you guys made me laugh. Thanks for that.

    The second thing I want to say is more serious. Through my work, I’m doing some serious study of racism and privilege in our society right now. It is an uncomfortable but unavoidable truth that white people are afforded privileges in American society that racial minorities are not automatically afforded. Similarly, straight people are afforded privileges in our society that gay people are not automatically afforded. Racial/cultural minorities and gay people have been actively discriminated against for a long time, and even now they have to work harder for acceptance and respect from the majority culture than does a white or a straight person. No amount of denial or wishing it were different will change that fact. Our society has not gotten to the point that it provides a level playing field for those who are different. Perhaps someday it will, but we’re not there yet. I pray that someday we will get there.

    For the record, I am a straight white female. But my eyes are being opened wide to the insidious injustices in our society.

    Phew, sorry if that got too heavy, but I needed to say it. Interesting that a day of great news for Adam has taken this turn. Hmmmm.

    On that note, I say Go Adam! Be your beautiful self!

  98. oh oh I know this I do let me get the link
    here you go you use this site to upload a picture and it will be used as your avatar for all worldpress blog sites

  99. agathe.hb, GreenHippo, smeggs, cher, and anyone else who considers themselves a reasonable, intelligent, witty, and good-humored Adam fan here at MJs — if the box fits, I say jump right in! There’s plenty of room, and with our intelligence and wits, we can have a rollicking good time!

  101. well it doesn recognize my signon and password I use here, do I need to create a new one?

    No but sorta…haha did the same to me..just go to create a new one but enter the same info It worked for me

  102. thanks smeggs I’ll try some other time – I am toooooo tired .. bed now zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  103. cwm ok I cry foul…I had to look up non sequitur but is means this:a conversational and literary device, often used for comedic purposes. It is a comment which, due to its apparent lack of meaning relative to what it follows, seems absurd to the point of being humorous or confusing…..er oh wait I get it you were refering to the pic vs. the confersation hahahahaha I think it might be nap time for me too soon…..wow i’m dense

  104. I had to look up non sequitur

    I can not lie…I looked it up also. LOL

  105. Yep, smeggs, by non-sequitur I meant that Kanadie’s posting of a picture of Adam’s nipple in the middle of (a) a heavy conversation about discrimination and (b) a technical conversation about how to establish an avatar was so completely unexpected and out of left field that it functioned as a “comedic literary device that seemed absurd to the point of being humorous.” God, I’m still laughing. (*wipes away tears*)

    Thanks Kanadie. That was epic! :-)

  106. “GreenHippo:

    Crap, I’m jumping out of the intelligent part of the box right now. Thanks a lot, Greenhippo. I can’t set an avatar either and have never downloaded a song nor dared to try. MP3? what’s that? Obviously I don’t have an EP remix. They say confession is good for the soul. I do buy actual cds though. I bought Adam’s, Kris’ and got Allison’s for Xmas, so there. :(

  107. haha you want funny my boyfriend found the package I got with my Rolling Stone Japan and started giving me crap about ordering it…err well I guess that not really funny per say but confession hehe I guess I better hide my Japanese cd when I get it…oh I guess I will own 2 cd’s……I guess I am one step away from BSC

  108. Sorry to hear about the boyfriend grief, smeggs. For what it’s worth, you’ll always have us! Cold comfort, I know. ;-)

  109. “I had to look up non sequitur”

    Hah, I’ll jump back into the intelligent box for a bit. I didn’t have to look up non sequitur. I did Latin in high school a long, long, long, long time ago……lol Kanadie, that was sooo funny. Luckily only the dogs heard me laughing. Did I not say earlier that none of us here could possibly be sane and reasonable anymore?

  110. cwm
    its ok I kinda tore him a new one cuz I was sick and tired of him giving me crap cuz I liked Adam. He has nothing agaisnt him its just the kinda of music he makes is my bf’s insta-snark haha used to be mine too a little bit. So we will see what he does from now on…will be interesting to see

  111. cwm, smegs, speaking of RSJapan, I’ll tell you a good one. One of our peeps here told her hubby (who’s totally not into AI)to get his friend that was going to Japan to buy a few RS mags for her and her friends. Poor hubby got them, reimbursed the friend and brought the mags home for his dear, loving wife, decided to flip through one of them (obviously to see what he had paid so much for) and was told by the ungrateful missus to be careful not to crumple the pages. lol…

  112. Well, folks, it’s been fun. I laughed, I cried, I cheered, I opined. But it’s time to go to bed. Holy cow, how is it that hanging out at MJs takes so much time and causes me to go to bed too late every night?

    MJ, I know we cause you grief sometimes, but let me say (again) how much I appreciate your site! Great fun.

  113. Good one cher– well at least that gal had her priorities straight, eh?

  114. For sure. You see her posting here all the time, but I won’t out her. haha.
    Cracked me up. Goodnight all. It’s been fun. MJ, love it here.

  115. Thanks smeggingnuts for the avatar link. If I had known it would be so easy, I would have done it sooner.

  116. well, it’s night for you, but for me it’s yet another work day :(
    Hope Adam gets safely to Europe, beware guys, the volcano cloud is coming towards ya :(

  117. Didn’t Adam’s appearance on Idol help them beat Dancing that week??? I thought Idol was first that week but the Newsweek headline has me confused.

    I still vote for Kris on AI finale and Adam on DWTS finale!!!!!

    Maybe IDK.. Kesha also used lasers during her SNL gig. Maybe they are the latest cool thing to use?

  119. Ok- really late to the party and didn’t read from the beginning- so maybe this has been discussed, but:
    Adam asked Allison to move in with him??? How cute! And I wouldn’t object to it if I were her mom- he obviously adores her and is exactly the big brother type (and also a big brother in real life) and would look out for her!
    I wonder if they’d get along on a day-to-day basis though… I know friends who fought horribly when trying to be flat-mates… especially if they have to fight for bath-room time, lol! Or maybe there are two- and then there’s no problem, hehe… :-)

  120. May I present the NEW Billboard TOP 10?

    http://www.billboard.com/charts/hot-100#/charts/hot-100

    Digital songs chart- #8

    http://www.billboard.com/#/charts/digital-songs?tag=chdrawer

    Eventful: Most demanded Artists #6:
    http://www.billboard.com/html/eventful/demanded.html

    There is a little trophy icon by his name saying digital gainer so I imagine the #1 hot singles position is for that. OMG by Usher has a trophy icon for airplay gainer.

    Also- Itunes is frozen according to Pulse- anyone have a live feed? You can tell by the update time if it still is frozen. Good news about that is Adam stays on that front page on Itunes even if he dropped.

    ETA: I don’t see the remixes on the Dance Songs chart

  121. Congrats to Adam, but I don’t see how people can give him all the credit, when he got the huge Idol pimpage and the resultant media attention

    Then by that token Usher shouldn’t get all the credit for the success of his single, neither should diddy, derulo etc. etc. There is ony one reason why artists go on idol to perform and mentor — to get media attention and hopefully get a sales bump. Sometimes the bumps are really big and/or get a brand new album/song off to a rousing start, sometimes there is not much impact (e.g. Kesha). When Kris performs on Idol and, hopefully, gets a big sales bump it will be no different. And it is no different when any other former Idol performs.

  122. It’s not enough to be given the opportunity.
    It’s what you do with it.
    Adam Lambert was given an opportunity- and maximised his profit from it- he put on a kick-ass performance, and was a great and likable mentor.
    Thus the huge bump. Simple.

  123. Just wanted to make sure everyone clicked through on Latina to see that beautiful picture of Allison.. just goes to prove that beauty doesn’t just lie with petite blonds with blue eyes. :)

  124. If I am not mistaken I thought that Kris confirmed that he would be performing a new single on the finale. So there is no doubt that he will be given a primo performance spot to perform his own music on Idol this season. Why anyone thinks that wasn’t going to happen is beyond me. And don’t forget, altho he sang Let It Be in his prior appearance this season, he still got a big huge bump on his album sales — he went up something like 80 spots on the BB200 after his appearance. so between the appearance on the first live show, his face front and center during the audition episodes, his face in the opening credits, the ford commercials, and the performance spot at the finale (which will likely be the highest rated episode of the year) it is not like the idol PTB have not done right by Kris. For whatever reason, his management/record company decided that they would use Idol to launch his new single rather than to promote LLWD, which makes sense to me. In fact, there was some consternation regarding the timing of Adam’s appearance because it was at a time when WWFM had already peaked on pop, but too soon to perform IIHY. If TPTB really wanted to goose Adam they could have scheduled him to appear a few weeks earlier when WWFM had a bit more radio airplay. They didn’t. But luckily it worked out and WWFM is going out with a bang with a peak hot 100 position.

  125. mr.: “It’s not enough to be given the opportunity.
    It’s what you do with it. Adam Lambert was given an opportunity- and maximised his profit from it- he put on a kick-ass performance, and was a great and likable mentor. Thus the huge bump. Simple.”

    ITA. I don’t understand how anyone can argue with not only Adam’s amazing talent, both voice and performance style, but also his willingness to take risks. Adam decided in the beginning to make a statement – win or lose, he was gonna do this thing his way. Something about him is speaking to alot of people – me included. This courage amazes me – he never takes the easy way.

    It makes me sad to read some of the comments posted here about Adam. IMO, Adam hasn’t gotten one single media opportunity that he hasn’t deserved and, maybe even more importantly, the media vehicle offering it, be it print, radio or television, has benefitted from it as well. To put a different spin on one of my favorite Adam sayings, business “ain’t deep”. If it’s not profitable, it won’t be offered. Some people just have a hard time accepting the fact that right now, Adam is good business.

  126. I am so happy that WWFM got to go out with such a big bang!

    Crossing my fingers for IIHY to get off to a good start!!!!

    BTW- any word about shooting the MV for IIHY? I wasn’t here for a few days, so maybe I missed something?

    EDIT: Not saying WWFM has now died, lol, just that it probably peaked both on pop radio and sales… it probably still has a nice future in HAC and maybe even AC…
    But you know what I mean!

  127. BTW- any word about shooting the MV for IIHY? I wasn’t here for a few days, so maybe I missed something?

    No word as far as I know, so you haven’t missed anything. :)

  128. Thanks tls62!
    I’m happy i didn’t miss anything, but said that nothing has happened yet with the MV… or maybe he’s keeping it top secret this time, as apposed to the other vids that got a lot coverage/sightings/extras spilling info/stalking, etc…
    Maybe he’s done it somewhere in secret and will suddenly debut it next week!! I can wish…

  129. Adam asked Allison to move in with him??? How cute! And I wouldn’t object to it if I were her mom- he obviously adores her and is exactly the big brother type (and also a big brother in real life) and would look out for her!

    OMG really Mr?? where did u hear that??? That is soo cute!

  130. OMG really Mr?? where did u hear that??? That is soo cute!

    Hakuna- it’s in one of the headlines posted above- Allison featured in Latina Magazine:

    On Adam Lambert’s offer to have her move in with him: “My mom loves Adam, but I don’t know. That’s gonna be a tough one to sell.”

    I found it absolutely sweet! And I think that if she’s not planning on going to school, but wants to pursue her career- maybe it’d be better to be living with him, and mingling with all his many connections, plus we know his close friends are very supportive and loyal, and he himself is the nurturing type- plus they FLOVE eachother- I see it as win-win…

  131. Oh- and now that she’s opening for him for some of the shows on his tour, it may even be very conveniant for them to travel together for gigs, haha!

  132. I found it absolutely sweet!

    I thought the same thing when I read that…it would be really good for Alli to mingle with his connections. I’m not a BSC fan that thinks the world evolves around Adam, but it’s no secret the guy has a lot of friends in high places that are very supportive of him. Very sweet of him to offer that to her. I’ve seen a couple other idols thank him for letting them stay at his house…he really supports his friends and it’s nice to see.

  133. Ohhhh nooooooo! I think Allison’s too young to live without parental supervision just yet. It was nice of Adam to offer, but would he really want to have to be her parental figure if she comes home drunk or with some guy she just met in tow? I don’t know. I think the business is going to make her grow up faster than she needs to. Stay with your mama for another year or two, Allison!!

  134. Ohhhh nooooooo! I think Allison’s too young to live without parental supervision just yet.

    She’s 1 week away from 18. Old enough to serve in the military. Old enough to vote. I’m thinking she’s plenty old enough to live on her own.

  135. Zsus, I totally agree with what you said. Allison’s at a very challenging age (I know – I have three teenagers!) and when you mix that with the fact that she’s in the entertainment biz, just makes it that much more important that she stay with her momma. But you gotta love Adam for his offer – he really takes care of the people he loves!

  136. IDK, I just don’t see Adam and Allison rooming together. If Adam wanted a room mate he would have had one a LONG time ago. Plus, he has an alternative lifestyle to Allison’s and I also think he treasures his privacy alot….I think he is earnest in the invitation, but I really don’t see it happening.

  137. PLEASE DON’T RESPOND TO TROLLS

    And take your butt hurt else where. I’m sick of modding the bitching from fans. DO NOT COMMENT ON THE THREAD. DO not comment on your fellow posters.

    I’m going to be putting many of you in moderation today. WATCH FOR IT

  138. I love Indian food but if you don’t, I could care less. Someone really needs to do a book about the psychology of the super Idol fans before people stop caring about the show completely. Hurry.

    Foods are not people. People get envisioned as gods and/or family members and/or lovers. We’re most of us pretty committed to wanting to convince others that our gods/family members/lovers are very very good, by nature, it appears.

    Ever hung around with fans of a different baseball team than yours? Not a whole lot different, in my opinion — and people don’t get the kind of huge-face-on-the-tv, big-voice-singing-right-to-your-emotions contact with baseball players that Idol fans get from their Idols. Yet they still tend to worship them.

    We probably don’t need a book, in other words!

  139. Well said Lucy!

    I think 18 is old enough to live on your own, and it was very sweet of Adam to offer. But 28 and 18 are very different stages of life. I don’t know if that would work.
