Idol Headlines for 10/11/09

‘Ralit’ (in two parts): ‘Top Model’ goes Ninja; ‘DWTS’ brings sexy back; ‘SYTYCD’ crushes dreams; ‘Runway’ gets stupid

I failed to properly celebrate National Poetry Day earlier this week, because I was too busy watching reality television. But hey, in a certain sense, this week’s Ralit is a love poem: To Maksim Chmerkovskiy’s meticulously groomed chest and Natalie Coughlin’s rippling back on Dancing With the Stars. To Tyra Banks, Mr. Jay, and a giant rainbow snail on America’s Next Top Model (please use bunky French accent when saying show title). To the Other Brother of So You Think You Can Dance. To Logan’s unfortunate pant cuffs on Project Runway. And to Samantha Harris, for making everything just a little more beautifully uncomfortable. This one goes out to you.

Press play below to enjoy, be sure to stick around for part 2 (which will play automatically after part 1), and hit me up on Twitter @EWMichaelSlezak to weigh in on what other reality series we should be covering. I think I smell some Top Chef action cooking up in the next week or two, and we won’t be working with any inscrutable prawns.

More Idol Headlines after the JUMP…

Kelly Clarkson fills Taj Arena with energy in 85-minute set

Once the people’s champion, always the people’s champion.

This much was clear 30 seconds into Kelly Clarkson’s Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort concert Saturday night, as the opening verse of “All I Ever Wanted” had a capacity crowd on its feet.

In the second week of her fall tour in support of her fourth album, “All I Ever Wanted, ” Clarkson wowed an all-ages crowd with a hard-charging set of favorites and covers that show the singer is at the peak of her pop powers, each song punctuated by an anything-but-low roar from her adoring fans.

Jordin Sparks’ Dilemma: Vacation, or Tour with Britney?

Which would you rather do: laze on a sun-soaked beach, or share a stage with the Princess of Pop?

For Jordin Sparks, it was a no-brainer.

When the American Idol star was coming to the end of an exhausting tour with the Jonas Brothers and putting in countless hours on her new video at the same time, she was beginning to fantasize about taking a break from the road.

But then came that once-in-a-lifetime call from Britney Spear’s camp.

American Idol Finalist Plays In South Portland

SOUTH PORTLAND (NEWS CENTER) — A former American Idol finalist put on a little show in South Portland Saturday.

Jason Castro, who finished 4th in Idol’s 7th season, came to Day’s Jewelers to promote the company’s exotic gem show. Castro’s self-titled album is scheduled to be released early next year, but the small crowd at Day’s got to hear his music for free, alongside the jewelry’s store’s gemstones.

Castro didn’t spend much time in Maine, but he tried to take in the sights. Castro said his life has completely changed since he left American Idol. And he still feels like he’s living a dream.

Kellie Pickler: ‘I don’t care if I’m on pop stations’

Kellie Pickler isn’t going to alter her country sound so that it’s more pop friendly and she isn’t going to release dance remixes to her songs to get more mainstream radio play.

She could — but she won’t.

‘I love country — that’s what I grew up listening to, ‘  said Pickler before opening for Taylor Swift at the Allstate Arena on Friday. ‘As long as I’m played on country radio, I don’t care if any other stations play my music or not. If they want to play my music, that’s fine. But I’m not changing it for them.

‘I don’t care if I’m on pop stations.’ 

X Factor finalists face public vote

The Take That star-turned-soloist, who has sold 55 million records, is acting as mentor to the wannabe pop stars as they face the public vote for the first time this week.

The 35-year-old singer will perform his comeback single Bodies on the ITV1 show tonight.

Last night, the high-profile judges were each championing the acts which they have spent the last two weeks mentoring, but Simon Cowell and Cheryl Cole clashed over the live performance by girl group Kandy Rain, whose past as pole dancers hangs over them.

‘Glee’ yellow dresses: Costume designer Lou Eyrich tells all

After EW’s Style Hunter received more emails than we could count about the yellow dresses from this week’s episode of Glee, we thought we’d go straight to the source, Glee’s costumer designer, Lou Eyrich, for the answer. Eyrich talked to us about the outfits for the ‘Halo’ /’ Walking on Sunshine’  mash up, her go-to shops for the show, and who her favorite character is to dress.

(By the way, to answer the many questions we got about Rachel and Quinn’s dresses: Rachel’s is by Shoshanna and Quinn’s is by Calvin Klein, but sadly, neither is available anymore.)

  1. @DavidArchie reached a quarter million followers last night at just passed midnight.
    Woohoooo!!! Congratulations, David! :)

  2. OMG. I had no idea that Slezak was doing a non-AI video series. Awesome, awesome, awesome.

  3. ‘I love country ‘” that’s what I grew up listening to,’  said Pickler before opening for Taylor Swift at the Allstate Arena on Friday. ‘As long as I’m played on country radio, I don’t care if any other stations play my music or not.

    Good for her, not everyone wants to be crossover artists.

  5. Per twitter, David Immerman will be Allison’s guitarist for her live shows. He has worked with Leslie Roy.

  6. I had the TV on last night when Access Hollywood came up. I normally don’t watch it, but hey the other choices were college football. I was happily surprised to see an interview with Kris Allen (previously linked online) but is much more in depth than what is online.

    The interview was done while doing the photo-shoot for his album and there were quite a few shots of him posing inside a Victorian type house. Now I’m going crazy trying to figure out the location. I know I’ve been there at some time.

  7. David Cook video from Friday singing Little Lies ‘“ he gives a shout out to Kris and Adam.

    David’s voice tone reminds me of a motivational speaker.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4LEg-Ju3TAs

    Wait a minute.

    What was Cook signing in that video? And I mean American Sign Language (ASL) signing, not signing an autograph. Right when he’s talking about Kris and Adam, it looks like he is signing a word. Does anyone know or am I completely off here?

    LOL Yeah, he does something with his hand, but I have no idea what it means (if it means anything).
    He has done the I Love You sign before, but this time it doesn’t look like it.

  10. Slezak gave Matt a few shout-outs during Realite. WOOT Michael WOOT!
    #signmattgiraud

    And he could not be more right about Project Runway, which sort of SUCKS this season. I love Christopher and Logan (hottie) but Epperson did NOT deserve to go home.

    David Cook…swoonage. And after seeing him last night in Providence, RI, double swoonage. I lurrrve this guy. Class all the way around.

  11. He has done the I Love You sign before, but this time it doesn’t look like it.

    Heh, I hadn’t noticed that before — almost looked like letters. Could just be Cookie hand flapping, however ;)

  12. From ontd_ai, A demo recorded by JC Chazes for Kris’ album, it’s called Build Some Love. They don’t know if it will make the cut.
    I’m not feeling it. But I can imagine Kris singing this.

  13. A demo recorded by JC Chazes for Kris’ album, it’s called Build Some Love. They don’t know if it will make the cut.
    Not feeling it.

    It has a pop/r&b feel – I like it but I can’t imagine Kris singing it. Sounds One Republic -ish with a touch of Timberland.

  14. Kevin Rudolf tweet about working with Kris:

    KEVINRUDOLFnewsKris Allen and i finished up their second studio session this past week and completed recording two new tracks. We’ll be mixing next week.

  15. It has a pop/r&b feel ‘“ I like it but I can’t imagine Kris singing it. Sounds One Republic -ish with a touch of Timberland.

    I was just thinking that! It has that same “Apologize” beat to it.

    Heh, I hadn’t noticed that before ‘” almost looked like letters. Could just be Cookie hand flapping, however ;)

    I’ll have to take it to the hyper-analyzers at DCO since they may have already discussed it.

  16. A demo recorded by JC Chazes for Kris’ album, it’s called Build Some Love. They don’t know if it will make the cut.
    Not feeling it.

    I really liked the verse and the accoustic feel of it, not 100 % sure on the chorus and that clapping sound, I’d rather see some guitars there. Sound like something Kris would like.

  17. I like Build Some Love… interested to hear Kris’ take on it if it makes the cut. Does sound One Republic-ish.

  18. JC is such a good singer. Way better than Justin Timberlake, imo. :P That demo is okay; it actually reminds me of The Fray. I remember a while back, someone found that he’d written a song for Adam too…I can’t find the website it was on now, though. ETA there wasn’t an mp3 of the Adam song, it was just a title included in a long list of songs JC had written.

  19. I really like that JC demo. Very pretty and I can picture Kris singing that.

    eta: those pics from the signing yesterday, ugh all these people giving him hugs when he’s just getting over being sick is annoying me A LOT. Keep spreading those germs people..

  20. JC is such a good singer. Way better than Justin Timberlake, imo.

    I agree. I’m waiting for his second solo album.

  21. Kevin Rudolf tweet about working with Kris:

    KEVINRUDOLFnewsKris Allen and i finished up their second studio session this past week and completed recording two new tracks. We’ll be mixing next week.
    about 2 hours ago from web

    And there was that Kevin Rudolf news I was asking for just the other day. I have ESPN or something. As I suspected, down to the wire there to record and then clean it up. So with Kevin talking about mixing the next week, does he just mean these next four days, because the 15th is not a week away. Or is it just that Kris has to finish recording by the 15th and then can take some time after that to finish mixing and cleaning things up after that? I’m curious.

    That JC song is very One Republic. I expected him to start singing “It’s too late to apologize,” in the beginning. I could see Kris singing this song if he stripped the arrangement down a lot and upped the soulfulness and took out some of the boyband sound. But I hope that Kris won’t pick that song. He shouldn’t have to work so hard to make a song by someone else, not suck enough to be on his album.

  22. Slezak gave Matt a few shout-outs during Realite. WOOT Michael WOOT!

    And he could not be more right about Project Runway, which sort of SUCKS this season. I love Christopher and Logan (hottie) but Epperson did NOT deserve to go home.

    Okay.. I’m confused here. I thought Matt is managed by 19M as I read in thread in mjs couple of days ago and I thought he said so. Now the confusion is, why can’t they find a label company to sign him a record?

    I’ve been watching glam rock bands from the 70s on youtube (some great music) – I would so love this to be Adam’s first single.

  25. Cook fans start praying

    thedavidcook If the chiefs win today, I’ll play avalanche tonight… Boom!

  26. LMAO there’s now an eruption on Twitter and a collective prayer chain happening.

    That brief This Is It clip is making me tear up already :(

    There is a world of difference between managing bookings for an artist (what 19M is doing for Matt) and investing a lot of money to record an artist with a record contract. I love Matt, but I’m not sure that I would invest $1 million (an average major label album budget) in a Matt album.

    girlygirl: LLWD has now gone past 1,000 spins on the radio

    Where is it on the iTunes chart? I can’t find it on anyone’s list. It can’t possibly be below 500? But this is all I can find on the Top 500:

    300 – No Boundaries – Kris Allen

  28. Where is it on the iTunes chart? I can’t find it on anyone’s list. It can’t possibly be below 500?

    I checked my ITunes store and LLWD is at 105. It’s still holding on in there.

  29. mama2dasha: Just got this via twitter:
    http://bit.ly/CvfXI

    makes me sad, too. I’m sure it will be a hit, but only because it’s MJ’s. I would rather remember his really great music and, if this is the best thing they had left over from all his old albums, I hope they don’t release all 1,000 songs.

  30. Cook fans start praying

    thedavidcook If the chiefs win today, I’ll play avalanche tonight’ ¦ Boom!

    As a fellow Kansas-Citian, I effing love Cookie’s unabashed love for the Chiefs and Royals, etal…even when they suck donkey balls. lol

  31. Sherena: I checked my ITunes store and LLWD is at 105.

    Thanks. I knew it was somewhere!

  32. Hi there. I would love to have a copy of the TfM snippet from the video but wthout the talking… then I could have it on my ipod on repeat and pretend it is a full song. Anyone know where I can find that? Or do I need to download it all with Adam speaking at the first? Any help MUCH appreciated!!!

    Just got this via twitter:

    http://bit.ly/CvfXI

    Typical MJ. It is a good but I think it will be huge because of his death and nostalgia then it being an OMG song. But like Time for Miracles it is only a snippet, so can’t really judge.

  34. makes me sad, too. I’m sure it will be a hit, but only because it’s MJ’s. I would rather remember his really great music and, if this is the best thing they had left over from all his old albums, I hope they don’t release all 1,000 songs.

    I agree, this will be a hit for nostalgic reasons only, and from that small snipped I don’t think it’ll be huge.

  35. I’m sad listening to Michael Jackson’s song, but that’s gonna be a huge hit. Maybe only because it’s Michael Jackson — but right after his death people were buying up all kinds of MJ stuff, both albuns and singles. Since this is a new song I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see it go straight to #1.

  36. I don’t know much about Boyzone, but this is sad news.

    http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/ireland/article6869799.ece

    I love Boyzone back then, but I like Ronan Keating better than the band. If you don’t know Ronan Keating, you’ve heard his voice on Julia Roberts movie Notting Hill in the song “When You Say Nothing At All” and “Words”

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w_Rut4qm33g
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cOVcBC92iyg
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PHs3fEnhLdM&feature=related

  37. I don’t know much about Boyzone, but this is sad news.

    Sad news indeed! This is a video of Stephen Gately singing “Bright Eyes” from Watership Down just last year.

  38. Oh, and over on ontd_ai, they are saying that LLWD is now available on iTunes U.K.

  39. I know nothing about Boyzone, — were they like a British version of NSync or BSB? I have heard a little about Ronan Keating, but not much. I’d never heard of Stephen Gately. It’s alsways sad when someone that young dies, especially since this seems to have happened out of the blue.

  40. If you don’t know Ronan Keating, you’ve heard his voice on Julia Roberts movie Notting Hill in the song ‘When You Say Nothing At All’  and ‘Words’ 

    I adore that song.

    ETA: I just watched Words – its a BeeGees remake, they did good job.

    ETAA: I like the Kenny Rogers remake a lot.

  41. I agree girlygirl, that song will be a hit. I’m not even sure I want to go and see This Is It at the cinema, I’d kinda like to remember Jacko as he used to be.

    In other news, Kris’ LLWD is now available on UK iTunes!

    eta: Boyzone were/are a huge Irish band, and have been around for about 15 years. They were just starting out as Take That – Robbie Williams’ band – were disbanding. I guess Boyzone could be comparable to the BSB’s in the 90’s.

    Stephen’s death has been a huge shock, and although I’m not a Boyzone fan as such, it’s such sad news.
    Louis Walsh, one of the XF judges, is Boyzone’s manager. He’s not appearing on tonight’s XF results show; he’s flown out to Majorca as have the other band members.

    Really sad day.

  42. Last studio day w Rob Cavallo! Can’t wait for everyone to hear our glam rock!!!
    about 13 hours ago from Echofon

    Are we getting a glam rock single??? Don’t want to flail to early.. but I’m so excited now..

    I wish it will be. I love Adam in this style!!

  43. Since this is a new song I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see it go straight to #1.

    I agree it can go to #1 but I don’t see it to have the staying pwer of a HUGE hit. It’s just not good enough from the snippet we’ve heard.

  44. Since this is a new song I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see it go straight to #1.

    It is just a new release not a new song — “This Is It” is from the “Off The Wall” sessions, it just didn’t make the album. It will sell a lot, then probably fall quickly because it really isn’t very good — at least judging from the clip they released.

    Wonder how much TMZ paid for the “leak”?

  45. thedavidcook If the chiefs win today, I’ll play avalanche tonight’ ¦ Boom!

    LMAO there’s now an eruption on Twitter and a collective prayer chain happening.

    And now Chiefs is trending on twitter. Did we do that? hee

  46. Listening to the JC Chasez demo. The melody is pretty, the lyrics are a little cheesy, and — if Kris does end up recording/has already recorded this — hopefully he would strip it down, get rid of the boy bandish background vocals and the clapping.

    It does sound a little One Republic-ish, and I could see Kris singing this, just him and a piano, infuse it with a little less boy band, a little more soulfulness.

    I’d rather have more stuff that Kris has written or co-written on his album. But it’s not awful, I could see Kris making it work.

    Hee, makes me laugh to watch that stuff.

    Oh my, glad I missed that first time around. Jason Castro has a nice voice I’m surprised he didn’t go farther

    I really like Jason’s lower register in that clip.

  48. Okay, those are 2 very bad fashion don’ts. Russel Brand is not funny. To each his won. Heh.

  49. It is just a new release not a new song ‘” ‘This Is It’  is from the ‘Off The Wall’  sessions, it just didn’t make the album. It will sell a lot, then probably fall quickly because it really isn’t very good ‘” at least judging from the clip they released.

    I think it sounds straight out of “Off the Wall.” Is it going to be a hit for sentimental reasons (largely), nostalgia or for it’s own merits? Probably a combination of all three. I thought OTW was an epic album (it was at the height of its popularity when I was starting high school and is attached to many memories). It had it’s time for sure, but not sure if I want to go back there.

  50. Wonder how much TMZ paid for the ‘leak’ ?

    TMZ didn’t have to pay anything. The MJ leak came from Sony Japan or something like that. It’s been on Youtube for around two days already. I’m actually surprised by how late the TMZ “leak” was.

    You can download your own copy of the snippet from here.

  51. If you don’t know Ronan Keating, you’ve heard his voice on Julia Roberts movie Notting Hill in the song ‘When You Say Nothing At All’  and ‘Words’ 

    I adore that song.

    ETA: I just watched Words ‘“ its a BeeGees remake, they did good job.

    ETAA: I like the Kenny Rogers remake a lot.

    I actualy prefer the Allison Krauss version. It is a nice song.

  52. The Chiefs are winning at halftime. Hope David is ready to back up his twitter promise!

  53. And now Chiefs is trending on twitter. Did we do that? hee

    The hilarious thing this exchange followed:

    @andyskib I guess we ain’t playin Avalanche tonight…

    @thedavidcook @andyskib must not enjoy his job too much…. Tsk tsk

    And now The Chiefs are winning bwhahaha. If the Chiefs end up winning methinks not only are we gonna hear Avalanche but Mr. Skib will never live this one down..

  54. On the release of mj’s single – there is no doubt about it, back it the day he was IT, Thriller was totally amazing.

    This new snippet is absolute crap (IMHO). Will it go to #1 – you can bet on it….this guys fans stick behind him no matter what he became.

    The guy turned into a freak, those close to him should have got the guy some help a long time ago. I would not buy the song and give that creepy family of his the 7 cents (or whatever they would get) from it. No way, no how. All of this just my opinion of course!

  55. @andyskib I guess we ain’t playin Avalanche tonight’ ¦

    @thedavidcook @andyskib must not enjoy his job too much’ ¦. Tsk tsk

    And now The Chiefs are winning bwhahaha. If the Chiefs end up winning methinks not only are we gonna hear Avalanche but Mr. Skib will never live this one down..

    If KC beats Dallas, I sure hate it for Romo after that game.

  56. thedavidcook If the chiefs win today, I’ll play avalanche tonight’ ¦ Boom!

    Sandigirl1103: @thedavidcook if the chiefs win by more than 10 will it be acoustic??
    :)

  57. Oh Boyzone! They were huge when I spent the summer in Ireland about 10 years ago. I bought one of their CD singles as a souvenir in the airport. Gately was also known for coming out – it was pretty scandalous to be gay in a boyband back in the day.

    I love Realite. That Lost shout-out was just perfect. I’m very impressed Slezak & co sought out tour footage of Matt’s ‘Hard to Handle’ to feature!

  58. 44 DAYS!!!!!!!

    You can tell that I am not a big MJ fan.

    And maybe there is less interest in this than I though there was.

    Seems like leaks from most current artist fly around the web very quickly. I think it took about 10 minutes for the Pearl Jam leak to go around the world.

  60. He such a kid – I love him! I would give anything to go to one of his Halloween parties.

    adamlambert My favorite holiday is coming! I think i shall rock Halloween as a GLAMPIRE. What are you going to dress up as?

  61. David’s voice tone reminds me of a motivational speaker.

    His voice reminds me of a radio announcer not so much a motivational speaker, his voice is perfect for radio. I remember when he hosted that radio show, and I was like damn if this music thing doesn’t work out he could totally go in that direction.

    A demo recorded by JC Chazes for Kris’ album, it’s called Build Some Love.

    I like this demo, I forgot how good Jc’s voice was. I think it could be a strong song for Kris if it is stripped down and even more piano driven

  62. adamlambert My favorite holiday is coming! I think i shall rock Halloween as a GLAMPIRE. What are you going to dress up as?

    I don’t have twitter or I would tweet him. We had better get f*cking pictures of that.

  63. Awww..he tweets again:

    half a minute ago from web

    He also changed his avatar and background on twitter.

    I guess he wasn’t included in the mini reunion –

    Allison4Realzzz Ahhh today today.. Gana meet up wiff Anoop , Megan and Jacky !!! Missin them !!! And can’t wait to see em’ .. Hope you dudes have an awesome

  64. adamlambert I cant get @KrisAllen4Real and @Allison4Realzzz singles out of my head! …such a good thing! I miss my Idol family!

    awww. Kris and Allison are in LA, they can pick up the phone and make plans.

  65. I thought I’d read somewhere that the MJ song wasn’t being released as a single, only released for airplay. Has that changed now?

    Not keen on it myself, not enough substance.

  66. Kris’s dad has responded to the “glampire” tweet:

  67. NBALLEN: Can’t wait to see what Adam Lambert has in store for Halloween’ ¦’ ¦’ ¦’ ¦.

    They totally adopted him, so cute.

  69. I bet there will be a lot of people going as Adam Lambert this Halloween.

  70. NBALLEN: Can’t wait to see what Adam Lambert has in store for Halloween’ ¦’ ¦’ ¦’ ¦.

    Huh, I am kind of scared he will pull out the matrix albino out of the closet…

  71. Maybe once they finish their albums in the next week or so, Adam, Kris and Allison will have a few hours to actually relax and they can get together for a mini-reunion. It doesn’t seem like they have gotten together since they’ve all been back in L.A.

    I’d love to see Adam dressed up as a glampire! I’m not much of a Halloween person myself, but I can totally see why Adam loves it with all the costumes/dress up stuff

    As yay for the shoutout for Kris’ and Allison’s singles.

  72. saga: Huh, I am kind of scared he will pull out the matrix albino out of the closet’ ¦

    I hoping for “hair on fire” Adam?

  73. lol

    I wanna change my costume frm (a pirate girl thing) to a glampire.heh

  74. Haha I HOPE Adam or someone posts pictures of him on Hallowe’en his costumes are awesome! And way more creative than mine haha

  75. why the hell isn’t iTunes opening??!!! I’ve tried to open it 4 the last 2 dys and it won’t work…

  76. His itunes picture from Is Anybody Listening is pretty vampiric – cross that and the 19 promo pictures and you got a glampire.

    btw I like the albino dredlock Adam – I don’t like the big blue devil Adam.

    Yes, he does. That’s the SECOND time he’s tweeted about their singles. :)

  82. What is a glampire?

    If whatever it is isn’t OTT, it’s guaranteed to be less than a hair-width away. ;)

  85. Someone put together a really good Adam video on youtube using David’s Life on the Moon.

  86. From Urban Dictionary:

    glampire :
    Hip, glamorous, well-dressed, fashion model vampires, as seen in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Blade. They will also be featured in the fashion section of the October issue of RLife, Reno’s premier lifestyle magazine.

    Also used to refer to glamorous vampires in the Twillight world. Edward is a glampire to many Twillight fans. And Bella’s look has also been dubbed glampire:

    http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=32413971&ref=cat1_list_14

    And there are at least two Twillight-Adam Lambert duo fangroups that celebrate Adam’s true glampireness.

    Hey now! That wasn’t a devil, that was a Hindu god type thing. And in Hinuism, yes Shiva is the god of destruction, but also of transformation and you can’t have the new without getting rid of the old. It’s also speaking to getting rid of old or destructive thoughts/habits or things. It’s like how people don’t get Kali Ma, the Dark Mother and destroyer and see her as evil, when in fact she is just a kick ass demon killer and warrior for the forces of good. But speaking of kick ass Halloween costumes and Kali, I loved Heidi Klum Seals one last year where she went as Kali…extra arms and all Now THAT is a costume With more money, but less time this year, I wonder if Adam’s Glampire be as eleborate as he has in the past? Not to mention he’s now in the public eye more, and not just part of the WeHo scene, but as evidenced by Heidi’s outfit, well that doesn’t necessarily mean much. Besides, Adam’s already a Glampire with that Consumptive offical picture of him for the AI record.

  89. Oh and go KC! I want people to get Avanchle in the next concert :)

  97. Poor KC – their locker room chant should be…

    Time for miracles – cause I ain’t giving up on us :mrgreen:

    ETA: Adam is about to fall out of the top 10 on Amazon.

  98. The Kris (winner)-Adam (singer)-Allison issue of Elle (December 2009) is on newstands 11/17/09 — the day Kris’ album goes on sale.

  99. Poor KC

    Aww, poor David. I always thought that nothing was suckier than being a Cubs fan, but since following DC, I believe being a KC fan must be worse. At least the Bears are decent this year.

  100. ETA: Adam is about to fall out of the top 10 on Amazon.

    Perhaps he can hang on to #10 for another hour. He’s still #1 on bestbuy.com’s pre-order list but down to #15 on Barnes and Noble best sellers.

    I can’t believe that SuBo is still at #5 — 41 days on Amazon’s top 10.

    ETA: Lady Gaga’s “Fame Monster” pre-order just hit Amazon. Already up to #270 and that is the also an 11/24/09 release. It’s going to be a very interesting day in the music biz.

  101. The Kris (winner)-Adam (singer)-Allison issue of Elle (December 2009) is on newstands 11/17/09 ‘” the day Kris’ album goes on sale.

    Aww, poor David. I always thought that nothing was suckier than being a Cubs fan, but since following DC, I believe being a KC fan must be worse. At least the Bears are decent this year.

    It’s early…give the Bears time. I’m a Chicago fan, but I’m truly a soccer fan…a fate I think may be worse than being a football or baseball fan in Chicago. The world cup qualifier wasn’t even on TV last night.

  103. ummmmmmmm,im Hindu and you know waaaaaay more about it than I do’ ¦’ ¦.

    Oh well I grew up Hindu, so I kind of have an advantage. Durga is my favourite Goddess, I still get some stuff with her image. But well Durga is not a costume for Adam as he’s going the vampire route and he’s not really into drag. Maybe Allison can go as her? I keed.

    Oh and sucks about KC and no Avalanche tonight. Well hell. But I have to disagree, nothing is more painful than being a Cubs fan. Even the Sox, Red and White, both finally got their WS wins, but we remain cursed. Damn billy goat!

  104. I’m surprised that Adam stayed in the top 10 for this long considering peeps are ordering an untitled album, w/o a cover, or a song list, or even an idea of a genre from a guy who hasn’t recorded an album before. Besides I think the demographics of the average Amazon.com customer seem to skew a bit older and a bit more conservative based on the other albums that are usually on the top ten list. But, I could be all wet and out of touch!

  105. I cant get @KrisAllen4Real and @Allison4Realzzz singles out of my head! ‘ ¦such a good thing! I miss my Idol family!

    awww.. good kid… I wish they are hanging out sometimes in L.A. They had been so closed in the last year.

    “Glampire”… that was genius, Adam :)

  106. Tess: Besides I think the demographics of the average Amazon.com customer seem to skew a bit older and a bit more conservative based on the other albums that are usually on the top ten list. But, I could be all wet and out of touch!

    You are exactly correct!

    awww. Kris and Allison are in LA, they can pick up the phone and make plans.

    After the albums are done! :)

  108. And there are at least two Twillight-Adam Lambert duo fangroups that celebrate Adam’s true glampireness.

    but…but…Adam is in team Jacob, isn’t he? I wish he could dress up in wolverine…

    Oh I am way to smart to get involved with the double-fan fangroups or to pick sides!!

    yeah, I was wondering too!

  112. Thanks Squirrely! Though I was hoping it had something to do with LLWD as the 1st line of LLWD lyrics is “Sometimes we fall down and can’t get back up…”

  113. My favorite tweet (I can’t remember who it was from, someone I follow, but I follow about 700 ppl, so…lol) said that Adam takes 30 seconds to tweet and then 2 days to go through all of the tweets he receives in response. HA HA And of course he got all of these “but what about YOUR single, Adam”? And the answer is HE CAN’T SAY ANYTHING ABOUT IT TILL IT’S RELEASED. Not that we don’t want him to ;)

    I am SO excited for Glam!Adam. I think TFM will be a good single and will do well, but the one *I* want is the first single off the album!!! I am also interested to see the cover art. Hope it’s fierce and not the Michelin man. ;)

    ETA: I am still grieving over my Red Sox loss to the Angels in the ALDS, but the Patriots are beating the Denver Broncos, so it’s not a total wash. ;) I wanted David to play Avalanche last night, and I guess he won’t tonight, either.

    That phrase has been stuck in my head through the years although the product they were selling slipped from my mind. I think it has something to do with those buzzers or call safety systems you give to your elderly relatives to wear so that if they fall or have some problem at home and no one lives with them, they can signal that they need help.

  115. I didn’t realize this was the underlying logic behind the set list or I would’ve paid more attention to sports.

    Actually, yes. Cook tweeted to that effect, but not regarding the Red Sox or Patriots (I can’t recall which team). He is, remember, a HUGE sports fan.

    Do you think that he hadn’t seen that commercial before he recorded LLWD and sang this line?

    Sometimes we fall down and can’t get back up

    I’m pretty sure that they never played that commercial in Ireland so I bet The Script weren’t aware of it.

    ETA: “I’ve fallen but I can’t get up” has it’s own Wiki page:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I've_fallen_and_I_can't_get_up!

  117. Actually, yes. Cook tweeted to that effect, but not regarding the Red Sox or Patriots (I can’t recall which team). He is, remember, a HUGE sports fan.

    I’m joking.

    I know that, today, Cook said that if the Chiefs won, he’d sing Avalanche, but I was projecting backward and joking that I probably didn’t get songs that I wanted at the concerts I attended because his favorite baseball, hockey, football, soccer, tetherball, curling, college chess team didn’t win!

  118. I like the examiner article- it sounded positive about the snippet. And a good snippet is better than a bad snippet, even if it’s just a snippet…

    but the Patriots are beating the Denver Broncos, so it’s not a total wash. ;)

    LOL, did you see what the Broncos were wearing? Those uniforms were way worse than the Michelin man photo shoot.

  119. I posted this in the TFM thread but I thought it would be appropriate here too:

    NYMichael has an interesting update (see link for full writeup):

    From what I’m hearing, RCA is planning a hot dance track that will chart on Top 40 radio as Adam’s first single which will make it complementary with the 2012 track which is more in the Adult Contemporary category. Covering as many areas as possible is vital during the holidays since there is so much competition. I’ve heard he’s booked for Saturday Night Live, and recommend watching some of the Lady Gaga press track for clues on strategy (will he fight Madonna too? ;).

  120. NYMichael speaks like an industry insider, and I remembered that he is one but I can’t remember why. Could anyone enlighten me?

  121. It looks like NYMichael posted again, he speaks like an industry insider, and I remember him to be one but I can’t remember why. Could anyone enlighten me?

    He describes himself as an industry insider.

    Most of what he wrote has been around for a while except this most interesting NYMichael comment:

    recommend watching some of the Lady Gaga press track for clues on strategy

    I am working in LA this week and the Lady Gaga-Lambert tour RUMOR is all over the place. Now NYMichael’s comment makes me think that there may be more than a rumor going on.

  122. recommend watching some of the Lady Gaga press track for clues on strategy

    I am working in LA this week and the Lady Gaga-Lambert tour RUMOR is all over the place. Now NYMichael’s comment makes me think that there may be more than a rumor going on.

    I thought that referred to her travelling everywhere and being on magazine covers, not that he would tour with her or have anything to do with her. But Im guessing you would know better than me XD

    I just was wondering if any of you knew if his connections/sources were reliable. Also that’s awesome that the rumor is everywhere, maybe if there wasn’t already a plan of touring together, they will if they see the interest.

    ETA: WAIIIIT is John Cusack hosting SNL anyday soon? (I heard that somewhere), wouldn’t that be the perfect place for Adam to perform TFM if that was true?

  123. Isn’t it the first time an SNL gig has been mentioned? I know many wished for one but I haven’t heard any real rumors about him being booked before.

    Haaa! One of the ESPN guys actually commented that they were the ugliest uniforms he’s ever seen.

  126. Cusack-Lambert? That sounds like an awesome combination!

    I know this is nothing more than rumor, but from what I’ve read of Michael, he doesn’t throw speculation around lightly. I flove the speculation and if the marketing peeps are trying to test a temperature, I’ll say, “Yeah, it’s smoking hot!!” Do. It.

  127. saga: Isn’t it the first time an SNL gig has been mentioned? I know many wished for one but I haven’t heard any real rumors about him being booked before.

    There are many rumors, some are online in other places. Most turn out to be false. A few are outlandish. Adam on SNL doesn’t seem outlandish but I don’t think there is any confirmed source for it.

    no one is taking it as fact, I don’t think. I for one I’m hoping. It’s nice to have something that reinforces the hope no matter how flimsy.

    The dance track heading to the TOP 40 is also excellent news. It’s the combination I hoped for with TFM – The best of both worlds.

    I hope NY Michael turn out to know what he’s talking about, cause his post cheered me up to no end.

    The Gaga rumor I suspected was something more when Adam threw out that random tweet of We Love Gaga a few days ago. I thought he may have been laughing at the rumor mill at first, but who knows maybe it was a clue.

    We’ll see soon enough, in the meanwhile I’ll just hope.

    You are exactly right. He appreciates Adam for the same reasons we do. Throughout the season, he has been very knowledgeable and informative about the industry, and very objective. He was always very professional and complimented the other idols as well. He was more interested in Adam than the others because he had contact with people in the industry who were pretty excited about him. Michael has seen singers, who had the “it” factor, go from obscurity to huge stardom, and he said Adam has that.

    That would be a GREAT combo – and great 2012 promo spot too (SNL hosts are usually pimping their latest movie, and John Cusack would make sense to host in Nov.)

    I’d also love an AI spoof skit on SNL – so much material to work with! (Paula, Ellen, Simon, Kara…practically writes itself).

    Haaa! One of the ESPN guys actually commented that they were the ugliest uniforms he’s ever seen.

    They were bad enough that I stopped watching the game (I’m not a fan of either team, though) but I think the old Houston Astros uniforms were worse.

  142. I am working in LA this week and the Lady Gaga-Lambert tour RUMOR is all over the place. Now NYMichael’s comment makes me think that there may be more than a rumor going on.

    I hope someone will put this rumor to rest soon for several reasons. I’d like to see him open for a bigger, more established act; I don’t want him to be permanently associated with her as some sort of male counterpart; and I can’t see how their plans could possibly coincide – she’s ready now and he won’t be ready till at least next spring.

  143. Would love to see Adam on SNL, but he has the chops to host as well as perform! It’s been done before, so why not???

    I dunno, Squirrely, I haven’t decided yet…. ;)

  148. I’d like to see him open for a bigger, more established act;

    Not to be facetious but if you are still in the headlines in the music industry after a year and a deluxe version of your album is being released and you have had a bunch of top ranking singles…then you are established (at least for the time being). I mean Jordin appeared with the Jonas Brothers and really they have only been on the music scene for a couple of years. And Archie went out with Demi and I think it was her first tour.

    I don’t see Adam opening for a “band”…the demographics don’t seem to mesh. He needs to open or share billing with someone who is reasonably close to him in style and who he won’t over power…no more abrupt change of genre’s and tempo like at the Idol tour.

    So Katy Perry seems reasonable, Lady GaGa, oh hell let him do a tour with Cher…isn’t she about ready for the next farewell tour.

    ETA: Just took a quick trip to I-tunes to see who is selling now. Are Amazon and I-tunes even in the same universe, can’t tell by album sales.

    The RUMOR is that Adam has been asked to play Kanye’s role opposite Lady Gaga — not open for her. And that is really very different. But it is a RUMOR that I do not believe is true.

    I actually do believe that one because of the source. She was right about Rolling Stone and although she may have got her wires crossed over the 2012 roadblock she sounded certain about Adam/Gaga. I thought she meant Adam was going to open for her though.

    Especially since the way that tour was going to work -with them starting at opposite ends and singing together and after one another- would show that Adam’s voice>>>>Lady Gaga’s voice. Also he’s not in her league yet, she’s much more well known and her album is multiplatinum as are her singles. But that would be pretty awesome :)

    Hey Q3 I’ve never been to a concert before and I don’t know which seats would be the best to get (Im going to one of Kelly’s concerts), could I tweet you and ask for suggestions?

    How exciting. And Kelly is wonderful in concert so almost any seat is worth having. Many people here are more expert at seat selection than me.

    Since it’s you’re first concert, I recommend trying to get a seat with a great view of the stage and the performer — in an arena that is sometimes on the Club level, not on the floor. If you can luck into seats close to the stage — anywhere — just grab them and smile.

    Have a great time!

    I’m hearing the rumor from people who don’t know what ONTD_AI or who “elephant1212” is. It’s actually a rumor outside of the “Idol zone”.

  155. and a deluxe version of your album is being released

    Everyone releases deluxe versions these days. I think DCook is probably the only artist from a major label not to release a deluxe version in the past 1/2 years. lol Which I still find strange, but that’s besides the point. Deluxe version are really common these days.

    Isn’t Gaga going on tour next month? I still don’t understand how can that be a possibility for Adam.

  156. Isn’t Gaga going on tour next month? I still don’t understand how can that be a possibility for Adam.

    I think she was talking about her next tour that starts in March. That’s what I thought.

    ETA: Well, crap! I hope the March rumor isn’t true because that tour starts in Australia!

  157. Everyone releases deluxe versions these days.

    Has any Idol alum ever released a deluxe version of their album?

    ETA: I guess Adam isn’t done with Amazon’s Top 10 yet. TBD is back up to #9. LOL!

    ETA #2: Regarding the Lady Gaga tour dates. The Gaga-Kanye tour was supposed to start on 11/10. The first couple of weeks of the tour have been cancelled. Lady Gaga has announced that she will tour solo starting at the end of November. But the tour was originally a Kanye tour that Lady Gaga was added to and only agreed to join if she was NOT the opening act for Kanye. The STORY is that Live Nation, the tour promoter, is trying to put someone with Lady Gaga who can sell tickets because this is her first arena tour. And there are not a lot of options that work well with Lady Gaga — and it is now “her” tour.

  158. Has any Idol alum ever released a deluxe version of their album?

    Not for their first album.

  159. Within the swirl of rumors about Adam, we know one thing for sure. RCA is working on a deluxe Adam album. I think that title will be “TBD Delux”

  160. OK Lady Gag found someone to open for her today!!

    Kanye Who? Lady Gaga Teams Up With President Obama

    and recommend watching some of the Lady Gaga press track for clues on strategy

    I never recall NYMichael ever being wrong about a fact he posted on his blog. So, regarding this comment, it can’t be that they are on the same press circuit because they are in different major label universes — Gaga is Univeral/Interscope and Adam is Sony/RCA.

    “clues on strategy” = promotion to me and all I can come up with is the tour or some other kind of joint event.

    The only two major events going on in Gaga-world are the release of her semi-new album and her tour — Note: all the dates before Adam’s album release have been cancelled.

    BTW Lady Gaga’s March tour dates are in Australia.

    ETA: He is what Lady Gaga said about her solo tour on 10/5/09:

    Gaga said the look of the tour will be very different than what had been planned for the Fame Kills outing. “In respects to the creative work that [Kayne and I] did together, I won’t be doing any of the things that we designed for the tour,” she told reporters on the red carpet outside Billboard’s recent Women in Music event. “It will be entirely new, and it will be just as amazing and memorable and epic.”

  161. Within the swirl of rumors about Adam, we know one thing for sure. RCA is working on a deluxe Adam album. I think that title will be ‘TBD Delux’ 

    Too funny.

  162. Q3- where do u find the info on the gaga concerts that have not been cancelled..

  163. Q3- where do u find the info on the gaga concerts that have not been cancelled..

    Her official site only has the March tour listed and Ticketmaster has every date cancelled, through January.

  164. Has any Idol alum ever released a deluxe version of their album?

    Not for their first album.

    Didn’t Archie have a deluxe version of his album last year?

  165. Seems like a bad time of year to launch a tour, with the holidays coming up. I go to about 6-9 concerts a year, but usually stop around Oct. to gear up for Christmas spending.

  166. How exciting. And Kelly is wonderful in concert so almost any seat is worth having. Many people here are more expert at seat selection than me.

    oooooh. Q3 do YOU believe that they will tour together? Or do you think that it’s all still just rumor and hope?

  167. dsp: Q3- where do u find the info on the gaga concerts that have not been cancelled..

    Lady Gaga first announced her solo tour before accepting the Rising Star honor at Billboard’s annual Women in Music event in New York 10/2/09 – “Lady Gaga to go it alone — solo tour launching this November”. Reported in 300+newspapers, MTV.com, and on many blogs. “Gaga said her tour will start in mid-November, but there were no immediate details on dates and locations.”

    On 10/3/09 Live Nation said that the first two weeks of the tour were cancelled but that Lady Gaga would tour solo starting in late November. Dates and venues to be announced.

    The is a Lady Gaga press event scheduled this week. My guess is that it is to announce the tour details — dates, venues.

    Q3 do YOU believe that they will tour together? Or do you think that it’s all still just rumor and hope?

    It is just a rumor. But I have to say it make sense to me for Lady Gaga, Adam and, most of all, for Live Nation, the promoter. So I don’t expect it to happen but it would totally surprise me. I do expect Adam to announce some live performance events soon — since he has only one announced event, GMA, and that was announced by ABC not Adam’s team.

  168. The is a Lady Gaga press event scheduled this week. My guess is that it is to announce the tour details ‘” dates, venues.

    So I guess we’ll know next week if she’s touring with Adam in her November tour. He still might tour with her in March though. Or join her for a few dates. Or something.

  169. Adam was in the studi again:

    greg_wells Mr. Lambert blew my mind today on the microphone.

  170. I think Adam has the energy and the drive to jump into whatever is set up for him

  171. So I guess we’ll know next week if she’s touring with Adam in her November tour. He still might tour with her in March though. Or join her for a few dates. Or something.

    Lady Gaga’s March tour dates are in Australia, so I hope that Adam isn’t doing those. (That would really surprise me and wouldn’t make sense at that point in his promo tour.)

    LOL -of course that’s what it will be titled, then it will be guaranteed to hit #1 on Amazon. :-)

  173. On the Lady Gaga reference by NYMichael in regards to Adam, I think he was implying a similar promotional roll out. Not that he will be on tour with her. JMHO

    Oh, I wish we didn’t just have rumors to go on, especially ones as juicy as some of these! Ahh, it just kills me not knowing! Patience, I know, and we DID get our yummy song leak, so all is well.

  175. Lady Gaga’s March tour dates are in Australia, so I hope that Adam isn’t doing those. (That would really surprise me and wouldn’t make sense at that point in his promo tour.)

    Ya that would surprise me too. I doubt he’s even KNOWN there.

    I wonder if Adam will personally deliver those instruments tomorrow…that was probably the biggest donation and it’s been one of the more publicised donations too. But then again he has to do that AMA announcing thing tomorrow so it would be hard to get there and back in a day AND wake up really early to do it.

    On the Lady Gaga reference by NYMichael in regards to Adam, I think he was implying a similar promotional roll out. Not that he will be on tour with her. JMHO

    What WAS her promotional roll out? She was an unknown so how did they introduce her? Unless you mean her ongoing press tour which stopped a few weeks ago. But that tour was in Europe and Asia and it involved her being on a bunch of magazine covers (I think) and doing a lot of photoshoots. But that’s just what I got off looking through her fansite. Haha.

    greg_wells Mr. Lambert blew my mind today on the microphone.

    I love the enthusiasm and excitement displayed by Adam’s collaborators. It’s so promising.

  178. Well, if it’s in reference to promotional rollout, we can see Adam do some kind of concert at Six Flags, per Gaga?
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3nH0eQJ3HW8

    I know little about her, other than having her album and starting to watch a lot of youtube vids. Her official “Just Dance” vid has 79 million views. If Adam were to have a .001% of her success internationally, that’d be great. She worked her ass off, doing a lot of radio tours, etc., basically performing anywhere and everywhere. Her stage set-ups are always interesting and site-specific. She has back up dancers, the numbers change according to the venue. I’m the most curious about Adam’s backing band/dancers/singers because he can be very visually focused and still be portable, if Gaga is any indication.

    Nice to hear Greg Wells happy with Adam’s vocals. So glad that his vocals weren’t damaged by the wear and tear of the AI Tour.

    Is it customary for the exact same producers to do all the idol albums in one year? Greg Wells, Max Martin, Kevin Rudolf and I’m probably forgetting someone, all doing a combo of Adam, Allison and/or Kris. Should that be really worrisome?

    I didn’t follow S7 – did the Davids share some producers?

    jpfan, yes, I heard Kris on Z100 the other day, mixed in with Taylor Swift, Black Eyed Peas, Beyonce and Jordin Sparks. His song is going to have legs I think.

  179. Top 40 Chart numbers

    Even though Kris is only 4 slots away from Jason, the difference in the size of their audience is huge. The power of Z100.

  182. Lady Gaga guest hosted on Diddys Starmaker. I didnt think she added much, just made some comments on the singers, but interesting seeing her on there. Kimberly Caldwell looked pretty good this week.

  183. dhunken: On the Lady Gaga reference by NYMichael in regards to Adam, I think he was implying a similar promotional roll out. Not that he will be on tour with her. JMHO

    You’re probably right and he just meant that.

    Regarding Idol alums with deluxe editions of debut albumes:

    leome: Daughtry, Jordin, Archie, Jennifer Hudson’ ¦

    So perhaps by “deluxe edition” RCA has something in mind like the Jordin and Archie MP3 versions with extra tracks.

    Jordin: 16 track deluxe edition
    Archie: release with 1 extra tracks (15 tracks on digital version)

    I wonder if Jive will release a deluxe Kris album, too?

    I hope RCA does an Adam deluxe edition with video and extra tracks.

    Daughtry and Jennifer had more “deluxe” deluxe editions but Daughtry Deluxe was released 9/9/08, and Jennifer’s was released in 2008 — 4 years after she was on AI. So not the same as a post-Idol debut release.

  190. I love the enthusiasm and excitement displayed by Adam’s collaborators. It’s so promising.

    September 8, 2009

    Kris Allen
    “Live Like We’re Dying”
    September 25, 2009

    ETA: Neither single is very high on Amazon chart because their digital business is relatively small, but Jason has a higher sales rank than Kris.

  192. I have to smile at Kris’s tweet! Just another step in the whole slow and steady…:) You’re doing great Kris!!!

  193. KrisAllen4Real Another day another track.

    Aw, it’s just his dry sense of humor. He just needs to drink whatever that was that made him so bouncy on tour.

  194. Bo Bice’s debut CD also had a deluxe edition that came out the same time as the regular edition. You had the option to buy the regular CD or the one that included a bonus DVD/CD. The bonus disc version included I think 3 or 4 songs and some video footage.

  195. I also smiled at the tweet from Kris and didn’t read it as boredom or exhaustion. I think that’s just his way of saying the album is coming together. I also smiled at the tweet from Adam. It’s nice when people support each other. Good twitter day…since other news is slow!

  196. I also smiled at the tweet from Kris and didn’t read it as boredom or exhaustion. I think that’s just his way of saying the album is coming together.

    Sorry, I adore Kris and all, but this is NOT going to get it done. I am in media and get pitches from PR people all day. I don’t care if your product is the hokiest thing on the planet, you have GOT to convey enthusiasm or no one else is going to be inspired to give it a second look. Look at informercials, for god’s sakes, they act like the Snuggie is saving humanity and it has worked!

    Kris is in a deficit here (the laid back thing is NOT translating particularly well). He can do this so easily, but he’s not even trying.

    This is a pivotal time in his career ‘“ thanks to Twitter, he’s getting a preliminary PR push and he’s not capitalizing on it.

  197. KrisAllen4Real Another day another track.

    I don’t know if I read this as boredom either. If I remember correctly, he said in an interview that he had to have his record completed by Oct 15, Which is Wed. I think it is just an affirmation that he is right where he needs to be. On the outside chance my opinion is not correct and he is in being hoe hum well I am sure with a deadline of Wed 19 is working his butt off. He must be tired and a little stressed. The fact he even has time to tweet is a feat in itself. IMHO

  198. I guess I find Kris’ tweets a bit refreshing from the OMG!!!!!The MOST amazing song ever. Can’t only one song be that by definition?

  199. Finally got back from driving down dark roads dodging deer on the way back from David Cook’s show in Charlottesville… just.fricking.love.him.

I just don’t want to put myself out there to meet him and then be all guh….duh…ummm…You’re pretty! It’s just not befitting a 53 year old woman (and truth be told, I can’t imagine how it wouldn’t creep him out just a bit).

    I wonder he has time to work on his video shooting at all’ ¦

    My ESPN is working hardcore! or mores to like, my knowing that Kris has only 4 days to finish recording his album for what seems like a drop dead date, so of course he was going to have work recording between a video shoot. I say of course because of course the post-AI 19Evol recording schedule of course sucks ass. It just pisses me continually off that they bother to find some people who can actually sing in the current music market of mostly Auto Tuned hacks, find some decent human beings who we might get an idea of and possibly like, hopefully there is some charisma happening and then after all of that, they make them do some monster tour too and make an album inbetween with a few weeks to write and record everything. Whee! Only ya know, not.

    Again, what a friggin’ waste. And Kris’s Tweet about how it might not seem he’s ensthusiastic enough? made me all sads n’ crap. He is who is he, and it’s chill guy with no small talent with a great sense of humor, and if need be, borrow some exclamation points from Adam. He has enough to spare.

    ETA: Ha! Sherena and I agree about Adam’s have more than enough exclamation points for everyone!!!!

  212. The whole thing was capped off by Kyle’s now signature mistimed, totally late rim shot.

    Ha, no, I wish! I was sortof around the corner from them once I sat down to eat. I didn’t get to really watch him eat his grilled cheese and chili. Though I must say, I ordered grilled cheese (sans chili) and it was frickin’ good. If I ever go back to the Nook (and smile while I do it), I’m getting me some more grilled cheese.

    Oh, the guy who brought us our menus (owner? waiter? dunno!) told us not to drool… I guess we were obvious?!

    But that being Wheezer did do some Lady GaGa Wheezer live medley with Lady GaGa Poker Face, no, f’reals The confluence of fandoms at this point is fairly astounding. I don’t see how Wheezer and Adam Lambert could ever do anything musically together, but whatever. My hands are offically thrown up.

    Oh and I’m so excited for suebrody and tierbee seeing David Cook before their shows of seeing David Cook where he rocked in his show. So cool! I’m so happy for both of you. Excellent!

  217. Oh and sources, though I swear someone else had them up already, anyhew, Greg Wells Tweet “Mr. Lambert blew my mind today on the microphone.
    about 4 hours ago from Tweetie ” and Rivers from Wheezer said “Ditto. @greg_wells
    about 4 hours ago from web”

    Again, I don’t expect that Rivers is actually working with Adam, but Greg is and is impressed, always nice. And Rivers, in whatever capacity or fandom via studio, also was, so also cool.

    Sorry, still trying to wrap my brain around a Wheezer/Adam song and well synapes are blowing. Less after watching the clips of Wheezer doing that medley, but still.

  218. Oh and not to spam, sorry mj I can’t help it I’m in a timezone that is later than the rest of all y’all and an am insomniac and is it better to add to my already long posts while waiting for others to post on a Monday very a.m for the US?

    Anyhew, Kris Tweeted “We are almost done with the album, or at least my part. Got a couple more songs to finish and we will be good. Really exciting stuff!”

    Ahhh. Cool to see that as per my specculations regading a possible drop date for finishing recording by Oct. 15th and possibly some time after to finish up cleaing up the songs and mixing it. So that it’s good enough not to late after Oct. 15th to be able to start making the actual CDs, start working on the album art, promos, etc.

    But yeah, Kris is still recording a couple of songs? Meaning more than one? Dude, you have like 4 days left and you’re “almost done” with a few songs? ugh! Between Kris and Adam I’m going to like loose every bit of enamel on my teeth and semblence of sanity.

  219. LOL Truthiness Allison would be horrified at the extra “h” in her fave band’s name, Weezer. (And the only reason I know is I looked them up back when Allison first talked about them.)

  220. Anyhew, Kris Tweeted ‘We are almost done with the album, or at least my part. Got a couple more songs to finish and we will be good. Really exciting stuff!’ 

    Hehe, I am also awake Thruthiness, though it is late morning here. Nice to hear Kris is working hard in the studio. I get the impression that he’d much rather be out playing live though! Are we sure he only has this week for the final recording?

  221. Kris has said in past interviews that the album had to be done by Oct. 15th. It sounds like it will be, too.

    And I hope people aren’t seriously tweeting him about not showing enough enthusiasm. That’s just rude. Just because he isn’t tweeting in capslock and multiple exclamation points doesn’t mean he’s not excited about how things are going. He’s SAID multiple times how happy and excited he is — and just the other day he tweeted about how much he loves his job.

  222. Just got back from Cassidy Haley’s show at the Viper Room. Cheeks was there, but no sign of Adam. Went with a couple of people from this board (adamland, dietcoke) and another person who posts over on IDF board and had a fun time. Cassidy was in fine form (and looked totally hot). Cheeks looked like he was having a good time!

    Hellz yeah we had a fun time. Cassidy is a sweet guy and is totally hawt and gorgeous up close, and sounded good. Cheeks did seem like he had a good time, talked to him longer than I did Cassidy, he’s also sweet and friendly. And the boi can dance!

  224. And I hope people aren’t seriously tweeting him about not showing enough enthusiasm.

    Yeah, agree with this. I think Kris just has a very dry sense of humor and that’s just the way he is. It is good that we’re not all the same.

    Was Cassidy wearing a shirt this time?

  225. Was Cassidy wearing a shirt this time?

    When I talked to him he had a tee shirt on (and jeans of course).

    When he went on stage he had a hooded, belted jacked with a shirt underneath.

    After another song, nope no shirt.

  226. Look at informercials, for god’s sakes, they act like the Snuggie is saving humanity and it has worked!

    It looks as if he upped his game, but honestly some peeps in this world would rather have refreshing honesty than PR junk.

    Recording in the same studio that prince recorded purple rain! I’m trying to channel it.
    about 5 hours ago from Echofon

    Yay! Another exclamation point from Kris!
    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  228. Recording in the same studio that prince recorded purple rain! I’m trying to channel it.

    Assuming he is not in Minneapolis, he must be at Sunset Sound Recorders (the only California location used for recording “Purple Rain”). Lots of big names have recorded there including McCartney and Dylan (two of his faves). Interesting that he mentions Prince. Is the song got a Prince-vibe or perhaps it’s just the exact studio that he recorded in.

    It looks as if [Snuggie] upped his game

    LOL. That’s just such an amusing turn of phrase and I don’t even know who Snuggie is, but I’m invisioning a stuffed animal or a Rapper.

  229. Is the song got a Prince-vibe or perhaps it’s just the exact studio that he recorded in.

    Or maybe Kris is wearing a purple plaid shirt?! :grin:

  230. I just saw the “I’ve fallen and I can’t get up” commercial. It’s moments like these that I live for.

    Something tells me if it was Aimee’s song, she would have heard by now. But who knows? I still expect one of her songs to make the album at least, and maybe even become a single, just possibly not the LEAD single (esp if they’re going dance-pop route for the first single, I’m thinking she wrote something more ballady.)

    So when you become famous this is what happens:

    On the upside ‘“ wasn’t he hoping to be able to get into Teddys?

    Awww, oh, well – it’s not the first (or last) time Adam is making the tabloid news. Hope all is well with them…

    Didn’t she say it was a WLL inspired song? I am also on the train that she is not getting the lead single if they are going in the dance-pop direction. Should be either a song produced by redone, max martin or claude kelly.

    LOL! I told Kris the trick to sounding enthusiastic in tweets is LOTS of smileys and exclamation points :-) !!!!! He just needs to follow Adam’s lead. Example:

    Get ready to shake yo asses!!! There be some beats a comin!

    Use of slang also helps :-)

    Well, if this is true, Drake sounds needy and possessive to me. This wouldn’t be the first time that he’s been ‘upset’ when out with Adam. Adam doesn’t need this in his life right now. He had a night off to go out and have a bit of fun and Drake pulls another hissy fit? Ugh.

  236. Didn’t she say it was a WLL inspired song?

    Oh, really? I missed this. Oh, that sounds cool!

  237. If you believe Radar Online, I’ve got some real estate I’d like to sell you. They are really a worse gossip rag that TMZ. I’m sure this didn’t happen the way it is insinuated. This is the kind of stuff that celebrities have to get used too. They know this kind of headline attracts readers. Adam seems happy with his choice of Drake. Someone not in the public eye normally, is better for him than someone who loves the spotlight IMO.
