Siohbhan Magnus: Cape’s ‘Idol’ star far from idle

“People always ask me: when’s your record coming out? But there’s so much more to it than that. It’s like all of a sudden it’s over and you have to learn about the business side of things. You kind of have to go out on your own. I mean, you make connections and meet people, but you have to work it and bug people. … For us (contestants), we had totally normal lives before going to Hollywood, and then you put that on pause for six months. When you’re done, your paused life is still there.”

What’s next? On Columbus Day weekend she’ll start recording a “demo” with her band in her older brother’s Hyannis studio. Then, it’s the town’s harvest festival on Oct. 17, when she’ll lead the “March of the Horribles.” She’ll also play a role in the Barnstable High School Drama Club’s popular haunted house.

Review, photos: Natasha Bedingfield, David Archuleta pack powerful punch at free ArtPrize concert

“This art festival is just fantastic, ” she said in her crisp, British accent. The pop star headlined the ArtPrize concert Saturday night, singing familiar hits and freshly-minted tunes from her new November release. Some 15, 000 joined in the mania at Rosa Parks Circle for the free show, sponsored by Citadel Broadcasting and Dave and Carol Van Andel.

Archie was in the house; that much was obvious by the pandemonium brought on by the appearance of the 19-year-old “American Idol” alumni. The crowd went berserk for Archuleta, screaming and carrying on throughout his half-hour set.

“People always ask me what I’m looking for in the girl, ” he divulged as a prelude to the appealing song “My Kind of Perfect.” This statement ignited massive shrieking, as if the crowd thought he was looking for the lady with the loudest scream. “I’ve never been in a relationship before.”

Yesterday’s event drew 755 singers, about 250 people shy of the record. To help drum up interest in the event – held on the International Day of Non Violence – organizers invited Grammy Award Winning Gospel songstress Yolana Adams and American Idol season four contestant Anwar Robinson, a former Plainfield music instructor.

Simon Cowell fights for Cheryl Cole to be X Factor USA judge as TV bosses say ‘we want a bigger star’

Simon Cowell is winning his battle with America’s Fox TV network to get Cheryl Cole as a judge on X Factor USA.

He has been lobbying for the Girls Aloud singer to join the panel for his new £100million American show, which launches next September.

So far the plan to launch Cheryl in the US has been questioned by Fox executives who have told X Factor boss Cowell she is virtually unknown in America and may not be a big enough name to carry a show expected to be watched by 24 million a week.

They are demanding an A-list star so the show can compete with rival series American Idol – which last month unveiled Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez as new judges.
