Idol Headlines for 10/29/09 – The Evening Edition

I’ve been thinking about posting headlines twice a day. Today’s a perfect day to start, cause I’ve got a pile of new items here, just for you…

Owl City’s ‘Fireflies’ Lands At No. 1 On Hot 100

Other notable debuts include Adam Lambert’s first post-“Idol” chart entry at No. 50 with “A Time For Miracles, ” a song featured in the upcoming blockbuster film “2012;”

Rihanna starts off at the lowest end of the chart (No. 100) with “Russian Roulette, ” however the bet is that she will quickly rise into the upper reaches as the track will hit digital retail sites next week and will impact her Hot 100 ranking the subsequent week.

Susan Boyle’s CD premiering on QVC

On November 24, British music sensation Susan Boyle’s first CD will be released, and as I wrote before, it won’t be filled with just show tunes. It’s been getting a lot of buzz considering that Susan has not been going on television promoting the album… till now.

Susan will appear on QVC on November 4 to launch her debut album I Dreamed a Dream. If you tune in, you’ll see Susan talking about the CD — it doesn’t sound like she’ll be singing live — but they’ll spin some cuts and urge you to order.

The 18-year-old told MTV News that working on an original holiday tune came naturally. “It all happened so fast that I didn’t really think about it!” he said. “I mean, that was the last song we worked on and recorded. And it was all pretty much a rush.”

Adam Lambert to Album Cover Critics: It’s Supposed to Be “Ridiculous”

It’s OK, Idol fans, Adam Lambert’s in on the joke.

In a Twitter post Wednesday, the openly gay American Idol runner-up, 27, told fans and critics his new album’s outlandish cover art for his For Your Entertainment disc is supposed to be just that.

“Thank you to those who appreciate and understand that the album cover is deliberately campy, ” he wrote. “It’s an homage to the past. It IS ridiculous.”

Cowell named as patron of charity

X Factor judge Simon Cowell shed his Mr Nasty image as he was unveiled as the patron of a children’s hospice charity.

The music mogul spoke of his friendship with a teenage girl with a life-limiting illness and said his involvement with the cause helped show him what life was about.

Speaking at the CHASE hospice in Guildford, Surrey, Cowell said: “When you’re in a show like I am in, and I include myself here, you get caught up in petty little problems and then you come down here, and you have no problems. It’s a complete leveller.”

He has struck up a close friendship with Sian Tolfree, who suffers from Di-George Syndrome, a rare congenital heart and lung disease.

Sian, of Leatherhead, Surrey, said of Cowell: “He’s like an uncle. He’s got a heart of gold really.

The Ultimate Song and Dance Man

He’s played with greats like Carlos Santana, Jerry Garcia and Journey, and produced superstars like Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Elton John and Celine Dion, to name a few. Throw in nine seasons as a judge on American Idol, and it’s no wonder that Randy Jackson is one of the music industry’s top dogs.

Randy says nine seasons have flown by. “We started this and we never knew how long it would go or what would happen, ” he says. “We’re just so blessed and lucky that the show took off.”

The nonprofit organization raises funds for more than 170 children’s hospitals across the country. Donations help fund medical care, research and education.

tWitch as a villain: Hell to the no?

So You Think You Can Dance alum Stephen Boss, the dancer currently known as tWitch, will star in Stomp The Yard 2: Homecoming. That makes sense; if there’s going to be a Stomp the Yard 2, tWitch should definitely be in it. Get this though: he’ll be playing ‘Taz, the antagonist.’  What??? I feel like tWitch has never even been the antagonist in an argument against himself about which smirk goes best with which glasses. The most rage he’s ever shown, to our knowledge, was the first and third times he slammed the door on Katee during season 4’s ‘Mercy’  door dance, choreographed by Mmmmmmmmia Michaels (embedded below). Who knows, maybe a bit of sweet guy-playing-villain intrigue will get people to see the movie. Would you want to see this good guy go bad?

  1. I hope I can keep track of which headline thread I’m carrying on a conversation in!

  2. Hey everyone! Just got home, turned on the tube and they are showing Adam’s TfM on the Reelz chanel!! It’s the Movies and Music show which repeats throughout the nite.

    Whhoooo Hooooo!!!!!!!!!

  3. Been wanting to know how others view Rihanna’s “Russian Roulette”. It is a very haunting song, beautifully sung and played. She does it so well that you just really imagine being there. It’s TOO real and frightening for me. Just hope adrenalin junkies don’t take it to heart. It will rise quickly I’m sure.

    Opinions anyone?

  4. Oh my. A plethora of news.

    And QVC? Really? That’s like, whoa, brilliant! It’s actually a great venue for Susan Boyle’s likely audience. I’m assuming she appeals to the over 50 crowd more than any other demographic. And really, if done well, she could sell a lot this way.

    Aww. At Jason Castro. Season 8 was the first I watched Idol so I had no idea who any of these other peeps were. But the bits and pieces of Jason I’ve stumbled across on-line have gotten me liking both him and his music. I even bought his single. I can’t believe how much fun it is watching these kids go after their dreams.

  5. My aunt is addicted to QVC and I’m spending part of the holidays at her house. I have a bad feeling about this.

  6. Hey everyone! Just got home, turned on the tube and they are showing Adam’s TfM on the Reelz chanel!! It’s the Movies and Music show which repeats throughout the nite.

    Thanks for the heads up!

    LOL. I can empathize. :-)

  9. Hey everyone! Just got home, turned on the tube and they are showing Adam’s TfM on the Reelz chanel!! It’s the Movies and Music show which repeats throughout the nite.

    What dat? I hope I can get that on Comcast.

    Thanks, mj. Now I will never, ever get any sleep. EVER!!! ;)

    In the iTunes world, TfM has slipped to #97 (boo!). When can we pre-order his album? It’s at #40 on the pop chart. I hope Entertainment SMASHES iTunes. I suspect it will. ;)

  10. Adam got the jump from the 2 minute interview with Oprah today,he was #8 on Amazon just before it aired..

  11. I hope Entertainment SMASHES iTunes. I suspect it will.

    If it’s half as good as I am excited about it. It’ll rocket to #1 when it comes out….of course keeping it there might be a challenge. I’m really counting on Adam to do a fabulous show at the AMA’s and follow that up with corresponding performances on a bunch of talk shows.

  12. QVC is the perfect outlet for Susan Boyle. Selling CD’s on there with the artist playing the music whether it be live or just playing part of the CD has been done quite a bit. I think Barry Manilow holds the record for the most orders placed.

  13. In the iTunes world, TfM has slipped to #97 (boo!).

    I am coming to the conclusion that Adam is not concerned with TFM. If he was, he would have taken the opportunity to plug it on Oprah today. Don’t cha think?

  14. And QVC? Really? That’s like, whoa, brilliant! It’s actually a great venue for Susan Boyle’s likely audience. I’m assuming she appeals to the over 50 crowd more than any other demographic. And really, if done well, she could sell a lot this way.

    I agree, it’s brilliant. And yeah, she is sooo going to have the number one album that week. And I will week, not just for Adam, but that this mediocre singer doing cover tunes is so popular. Oy to the vey.

  15. Adam got the jump from the 2 minute interview with Oprah today,he was #8 on Amazon just before it aired..

    There is a huge lemming quotient in the Oprah audience. Just look at the books she features where she forces the authors to put her “O” on their covers. Their work. They’ve sweated over a novel for years and they have to put her “O” on their cover. Heh.

    Oh, I remember Kelly Ripa was pushing a book I had previously been interested in reading. I had to go through a stack of those books before I found one without her mug on the cover.

  16. Opinions anyone?

    Ceddies, I like the song. I know Perez hated it, but I had it constantly on repeat for a few days. A lot of Rihannas songs have a very strong baseline or drum beat, which I love. I also like the special tone her voice has. I think she is slowly moving towards a heavier sound.

  17. Also #2 in Rock and Pop!

    Amazon.com Sales Rank: #2 in Music (See Bestsellers in Music)
    Popular in these categories: (What’s this?)
    #2 in Music > Rock
    #2 in Music > Pop

  18. I knew what Adam was doing, even if I didn’t think it was well executed. The thing is, he shouldn’t have addressed it. It kinda of lessens the impact. Like the joke you have to explain.

  19. Been wanting to know how others view Rihanna’s ‘Russian Roulette’ . It is a very haunting song, beautifully sung and played. She does it so well that you just really imagine being there. It’s TOO real and frightening for me. Just hope adrenalin junkies don’t take it to heart. It will rise quickly I’m sure.

    Opinions anyone?

    I loved it when I first heard it. I don’t have the urge to play it constantly like I did with Disturbia, though. It’s not as upbeat of a song.

    I think that whoever is planning Rihanna’s artistic evolution is handling it really, really well. It’s not like somebody like Christina who jumped with innocent girl next door to Dirrty in a year. From Pon de Replay to SOS to Umbrella to Shut Up and Drive to Disturbia and to Russian Roulette, the transitions have been really smooth, as have the changes in her look. People probably didn’t even notice much. But if you just listen to at Pon de Replay and then Russian Roulette, it’s like whoa, this girl’s sound has REALLY gotten a lot darker. And I have to say I like the new Rihanna more :) And btw, I like her album cover too. The pose is rather reminiscent of Adam’s cover, no?

  21. Susan Boyle’s CD premiering on QVC

    Holy smokes. She’s going to move a lot of units that way. No offense to our QVC watchers here, but that is her demographic. Barry Manilow has done this for his past couple albums and this is where a LOT of his sales come from.

    Smart marketing there.

  22. OMG!!!!!!!

  23. I am both super stoked and nervous about Adam’s single. Especially after TfM and TsC, and WTAF is with these Friday releases?

    I am NOT pleased.

  24. ‘It’s an homage to the past. It IS ridiculous.

    So is Adam saying the past is ridiculous? j/k sorta…

    QVC for SuBo cracked me up…mainly because it’s her target audience and QVC always cracks me up.

  25. He must be really excited that he tweet that twice. i’m shaking while typing…omgomgomg

  26. Truthiness, 1) What’s TsC? 2) It’s not being released. Just played on the radio. I doubt it’ll be available to buy until Monday or Tuesday.

  27. adamlambert Gonna be on Seacrest tommorow morning to debut single “For Your Entertainment” on the radio!

    OHHHHH can’t wait tomorrow and on Ryans show to boot. I tweeted Ryan last night and ask if this was possible. Biggest radio station ever,
    I just knew Adam would debut on Ryans show. What a statement .

  28. And btw, I like her album cover too. The pose is rather reminiscent of Adam’s cover, no?

    Yeah, only not sucktastic.

  29. It’s so cool he’s going debut on Ryan’s show but I wanna know WHAT TIME???

  30. Adams single was played last night:

    Molinari to adam:

    @adamlambert Sooooo Goooood to see you last night! I missed you! I love that the dj played your single at @thehwood !!!

  31. Hey Sassycatz

    I get what you mean lemmings and Oprah overload. But those authors will sell a zillion copies because of her and having her “O” in the corner of their dust jacket just makes the sales go on and on and on … in case anyone forgets where the book received it’s first endorsement. I’m sure that there aren’t too many complaining.

    Apparently, there have been a few who forgot to say thank you though. Can’t imagine that that’s a very smart thing to do.

    Actually, I like Oprah. Me mum has learned a lot from her over the years when she might have been watching the Y&R instead.

    Truthiness, 1) What’s TsC?

    The*shudder*Cover.

    And yes, putting it on the radio before you can buy it is BRILLIANT in these days when things can be ripped and shared immediately. Maybe I’m just too dumb about the music industry (but not stupid about Arrrring music), but if it were me, what I’d do would be have both available as much at the same time as possible.

  33. Friday may not be a good day for debuts (according to those that are in the know here, not me) but I love that it’s the day before Halloween, Adam’s fav holiday!

  34. It’s so cool he’s going debut on Ryan’s show but I wanna know WHAT TIME???

    LOL. They are going to make you listen to the entire Ryan show. Get ready to Rap!

    DAMN DAMN DAMN I have to be out of the house by 7:15 tomorrow DAMN!! and I won’t be near a radio or computer until 3:00 – 3:30 I’m so upset right now. What are the chances this will debut before 7:15 Eastern time :(

  36. adamlambert Gonna be on Seacrest tommorow morning to debut single ‘For Your Entertainment’  on the radio!

    WUT. WUT. WUT. WUT. OHMYGOD

  37. What are the chances this will debut before 7:15 Eastern time

    Pretty close to zero. It will be 4:15 am at that time!

    IDK Ryan usually seems to debut these Idol things around 8 am or so. So, that’s 11 am your time.

    DISCLAIMER: The Poster cannot be held accountable to people who use her WAG and miss hearing the song for the first time. That goes double for holes punched in the wall.

  38. What are the chances this will debut before 7:15 Eastern time

    I think Ryan’s show is 10 EST and 7 PST. Sorry.

  39. OMG RT @elythecreep oh shit..its starting… @adamlambert: Gonna be on Seacrest tommorow morning to debut single “For Your Entertainment”!
    less than 20 seconds

    Oh, yes it is Mr. Creep, yes it is!

  40. oh ma gawd. FIANLLY!!! Of course, I wish it was on Saturday for my own selfish reasons. I guess I’m gonna fake sick for the first time haha… I would be pointless at school all day anyways…

  41. They are awake at Sony. The onslaught of press about the album cover had to followed by leaks. All that primed press. Articles abounding. Needed to have links to the music. Love it or loathe it, cover doesn’t matter, it’s what’s inside that counts. (Twitter was alive with Leak!Leak!Leak!, me included.)

    But debut! Wonderful!!!!

  42. I hope I can keep track of which headline thread I’m carrying on a conversation in!

    Hmm, this could be troublesome for me too. But I do enjoy the evening headlines. And ya’ know I’m going to have to see that Twitch movie!

    I think I’m going to start stockpiling all of those Simon, charity related articles. People always seem curious about why Simon never does anything good with all of that money. I figure they’ll be grateful we finally have an answer :)

  43. Maybe I’m just too dumb about the music industry (but not stupid about Arrrring music), but if it were me, what I’d do would be have both available as much at the same time as possible.

    I’ve been debating this with myself lately. This is what I came up with.

    While there will be people that will download a ripped version from the radio show and never buy the single. Most will either buy the single for the better quality. Or, download for free another better quality version later. I don’t see much $$ lost from the above type people. What they do lose out on are the people that might have bought it on impulse after first hearing it but when given time to think about it decide they don’t want to spend the money or completely forget about it. I doubt that is a large pile of money either. As long as the song gets more radio play, the people that forgot will hear it again….and if they cheap ones really can’t afford $1.29, then giving them time to think is a good thing.

    What they gain by having it debut on radio before it’s released is a build up of interest in the single thereby improving the first (and hopefully subsequent) weeks numbers and having it chart better which will make more people aware of it and hopefully continue to sell.

  44. Wait- I thought Kris debuted on Ryan’s show too?

    I thought he debuted on Z100 in NY?

  47. Uhh I am almost shaking and crying. Okay not really, but dude, I am super stoked and super nervous about this single. So much riding on this now for BB.

    Damn it! How did I get invested about something as failtastic as anything related to AI? So pathetic. I mean that last thing I really cared about and invested time and money in was the election, and that mattered. How did I go from devoting myself to politics this AI? Oh wells.

  48. Cover, TII red carpet, being on Oprah are all but prelude to this EPIC moment. One punch after another, pushing us higher and higher close to the climax…omg I’m so excited!!

    http://music-mix.ew.com/2009/10/28/adam-lambert-rihanna-album-cover/

    I like them both – Adam’s is dreamy and gives an Andy Warhol feel (I think it would look great in a four square poster) and Rihanna’s has a Grace Jones appeal (as I said in a different thread)

    I seriously want to cry right now – this is going to be one hell of a long as company meeting tomorrow :(

    This is me….why/how does this happen?

  54. Will Ryan have a livestream like he did when he interviewed BB on the day of the AMA announcements? That was kewl cause I was able to listen while at work (had to close the office door so people won’t see me hyperventilating and call 911).

    Is it tomorrow already (or tommorow per BB’s spelling)?

  55. still shaking and flailing

    i have an exam tomorrow but how can i calm down to prepare??? breathe in breath out breathe in breathe out

  56. If everyone here hates it I’m not coming back.

    DLee- If we lived through THE COVER, we can live through anything, lol!

  57. What are the chances this will debut before 7:15 Eastern time

    I know, I’m going to cry if it sucks. Well again, not really. But yeah, coming here will be haaarrdd.

    I mean I lived through the disappointment of TfM and the horror, the horror of TsC, but this might be too much for my oh so fragile, delicate flower self, to stand.

  59. So 6:55 a.m. Pacific time (9:55 a.m. Eastern time) for Adam debuting his single. Hope he is more awake than Kris sounded when he was on Ryan’s show at that ungodly hour a few weeks back!

    This is very exciting — I was beginning to think we’d never hear Adam’s single!!

    I’m assuming they aren’t actually releasing it tomorrow. They don’t want to screw it up with a Friday release like Jive did with LLWD. I’m thinking it will eb released to iTunes, etc. next Monday or Tuesday?

    TOO MUCH FOR MY HEART. So many tweets, and of course, I AM NOT ONLINE DURING THE TWEETING FRENZY.

    *thud*

  69. Wut? I thought the show started at 7am PST. Now I’m just confused.

    Tweeted Ryan for time for Adams fans and this is what Ryan or someone sent out.

  70. Adam continues to twat away:

    adamlambert
    OMG Space Cowboy’s “Egyptian Lover” is so siiiiiiick
    less than 10 seconds ago from Echofon

  71. I think I want to hear the song – many times – before I hear what other people think.

  72. lol..and now he’s pimping other people:

    adamlambert OMG Space Cowboy’s “Egyptian Lover” is so siiiiiiick 3 minutes ago from Echofon

  73. Truthinress- remember when the Bedazzled Vest Of Ugliness was your biggest worry? Ahhh, memories. Adam loves to scare the shit out of us, doesn’t he?

    laf. I loved that vest. It was delightfully cheesey and very appropriate to the song (DSB).

    And I don’t hate the cover. I don’t love it cause I think it needs more glitter and unicorns and things but I do like it. It’d be really cool if they actually glued colored glitter on his hair and around his eyes for the physical media (like they do for Christmas cards).

  74. There was only one time during the show that he sang a song I didn’t care for. What if this is one of those times?

  75. @elythecreep

    RT oh shit..its starting… @adamlambert: Gonna be on Seacrest tommorow morning to debut single “For Your Entertainment” on the radio!28 minutes ago from UberTwitter

    lol

  76. Adam just tweeted again:

    @EdenEspinosa 6:55AM. Sorta early’ ¦4 minutes ago from Echofon in reply to EdenEspinosa

    FYI…Eden played Elphaba in “Wicked”.

  77. Welcome to my world. Which I still live in a year later. I am sure that makes you feel ever so much better! LOL!

    LOL. Well that helps :P

    Oh well, is it too early to drink if I don’t like it? Mimoas and Bloody Mary’s, those are acceptable breakfast drinks, right?

    edited post you were responding to

  78. DLee- If we lived through THE COVER, we can live through anything, lol!

    The cover was a picture….this is THE MUSIC!!!!!!!!!!

  79. Why is Jim C tweeting about Kradam fanfiction???

    Because he is Jim.

    Apparently he showed Kradam fic to a group of people including Claire Danes and then played them a Kradam vid he made.

    I know, I’m going to cry if it sucks. Well again, not really. But yeah, coming here will be haaarrdd.

    I mean I lived through the disappointment of TfM and the horror, the horror of TsC, but this might be too much for my oh so fragile, delicate flower self, to stand.

    Very ~nervous.

    If it actually genuinely sucks I’ll ACTUALLY cry. I’ve said from the beginning that everything hinges on the first single. It’s gotta be good. I’m so grateful it’s finally coming out now, hopefully in time to be a moderate hit before the album comes out. Ahhhhh. I don’t even know. My delicate flower self is very ~nervous too.

  80. I know, I’m going to cry if it sucks. Well again, not really. But yeah, coming here will be haaarrdd.

    SUCK?? It’s not going to suck.

    Why all the angst?

    It is Adam, his song will be AMAZING !!! Have faith. Has he ever let us down (well, okay the Cover, shhhhhh). But really, singing is what Adam does best, album covers, maybe not so much. heh

    Come on peeps, you should be rejoicing. YEA for the single. YEA for the debut. (what is with these Friday debuts anyway? So is Friday the new Tuesday ? ;-) )

  81. I got the music in me…I got the MUSIC IN ME…

    I am watching Project Runway. After that, back to Adam on Oprah. So adorable today (okay, pre-taped, but so what?), and tomorrow SO FIERCE.

    Yeah…what cover? That was like 100 years ago or something, right?

    *flailing*

    ETA: This song is SO not gonna suck. In no way is it gonna suck. NO SUCKAGE.

  82. Why is Jim C tweeting about Kradam fanfiction???

    Because he is Jim.

    Apparently he showed Kradam fic to a group of people including Claire Danes and then played them a Kradam vid he made.

    Jim didn’t read the fanfic, it was someone else, a Kenny Broadway person who read excerpts from a Kradam fanfic with bits of singing TfM.

  83. Again I think some people are overestimating Adam’s appeal. Look at the iTunes charts — it’s Taylor Swift with 6 songs in the Top 11, plus Miley Cyrus and Britney. Anyone who thinks FYE is going to automatically go right to #1 is a little delusional IMO. It MAY get there, but it’s by no means a certainty.

  84. Oh well, is it too early to drink if I don’t like it? Mimoas and Bloody Mary’s, those are acceptable breakfast drinks, right?

    Mimosas are fine in my book. Wooohooo for Mimosas! Nothing like brunch w/mimosas… just make yourself brunch and it’ll be all good.

    Ugh, you guys are giving me flashbacks from last year! I was so anxious, and felt so ridiculous for being anxious… ah, the joys of being invested in someone from AI. I honest to God could not do it again this year. I still worry enough about my guy from last year. Just think, when the new batch of invested fans are going through this next year… you’ll be the old pros :) . This too shall pass, lol.

  85. SUCK?? It’s not going to suck.

    Why all the angst?

    It is Adam, his song will be AMAZING !!! Have faith. Has he ever let us down (well, okay the Cover, shhhhhh). But really, singing is what Adam does best, album covers, maybe not so much. heh

    Come on peeps, you should be rejoicing. YEA for the single. YEA for the debut. (what is with these Friday debuts anyway? So is Friday the new Tuesday ? )

    Even fantastic singing can’t rescue a crappy song. It’s not about faith in Adam so much as… faith in Dr. Luke. Which I actually do have. But not enough that I’m not stomach clenchingly anxious over it all, WHILE rejoicing…

    About Friday…maybe. It’s not the best day to release things to get good rankings, but Friday is when everyone’s work/school week ends and they settle in and take some free time. That’s why movies get released on Fridays!

  86. Oh well, is it too early to drink if I don’t like it?

    No, Truthiness, it will not be too early at all. It will, in fact, be mandatory.

    But you will like it. The reason they’ve rushed to debut, bypassing leaks, is because they need it out there. Now. Forget the cover, follow the Oprah bounce, give ’em the real stuff.

    It’s gonna have a good beat. And you can dance to it.

    It’s gonna have a great, inventive, and loud bassline.

    There is actually only one question:

    Is it overproduced swill that buries his voice, edge and range, or is it not?

    Voting: not. Voting: It’s gonna be sick with nine iiiiiii’s and six exclamation points. (And knocking wood)

  87. Have faith. Has he ever let us down (well, okay the Cover, shhhhhh). But really, singing is what Adam does best, album covers, maybe not so much. heh

    The live version of One was not of goodness. The studio was good and if he had just done that…and choosing Cryin’? silly. I know, bygones, but point being, yes…let down before besides TsC. Oh and not thrilled with TfM either, btw. So like I said, ~nervous.

    Maybe I should start drinking now and just keep it up until tomorrow. I picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue.

  88. . Just think, when the new batch of invested fans are going through this next year’ ¦ you’ll be the old pros :) . This too shall pass, lol.

    Do you promise? How did you manage to watch this year w/o getting invested in someone?

    Girlygirl, what did I miss?? Who said it was going straight to #1??

  90. I still worry enough about my guy from last year. Just think, when the new batch of invested fans are going through this next year’ ¦ you’ll be the old pros . This too shall pass, lol.

    Yes, but I was a Cookie fan last year (still luv the guy) and I thought no way , could that ever happen again. Especially since I dont watch AI (writer’s strike is the only reason I started watching last year), but gosh darn if Adam Lambert that friggin Glittery ALien from P.F. didnt drag me right back in… Damn you Adam .

    Except not doing what I did for Cookie last year. Sorry Adam, but been there, done that. Will only buy the single and/or CD if I like it (I liked Cook’s stuff, but multiple single purchases?, never again!)

  91. Again I think some people are overestimating Adam’s appeal. Look at the iTunes charts ‘” it’s Taylor Swift with 6 songs in the Top 11, plus Miley Cyrus and Britney. Anyone who thinks FYE is going to automatically go right to #1 is a little delusional IMO. It MAY get there, but it’s by no means a certainty.

    Hell to the yeah! Shall we put a bit of real expectations in here? Thank you.

    Adam didn’t even WIN and his last song only got to 9 or 8 overall, and then went down. Yes yes, not his real single, I’ll agree, but dudes, not like the guy was even at Cook, much less Archie levels last year thus far.

    And if the song sucks? Well there you go then.

  92. Ackkk…David Cook fan here to reassure the Adam and Kris fans. It will be OK! They will do well and obviously have great fans or they would not be where they are today. Take a deep breath….

  93. girlygirl

    Anyone who thinks FYE is going to automatically go right to #1 is a little delusional IMO. It MAY get there, but it’s by no means a certainty.

    girlygirl, can I hug you? I’m so excited, I need to calm down.

    No one has threw out number yet. After recover from flailing, maybe we can retain our consciousness to predict where it’ll go. Right now, I’m just so excited the music fiannly come!!! omg

  94. Do you promise? How did you manage to watch this year w/o getting invested in someone?

    I was still too busy following David Cook ;) . Of course maybe next year I get really invested in someone else and it starts up again, I should not jinx myself! But while there was a new season of Idol I was busy looking for David’s mug on the wall during auditions, waiting to see if he was featured in the auditions, watching his cool commercial, waiting to see what he performed on the show, following the YouTubes and then going to see his tour… there’s plenty to keep you busy, lol.

    The upside of not getting totally invested in anyone was that I liked a lot of the kids this year and I think paid more attention to more people because I didn’t have tunnel vision. Though come to think of it… maybe that sucks because I’ll probably end up shelling out more album money? Oh noes!

  95. sherena, yes Rhianna’s cover does remind me of Adam’s cover. A lot. Regarding what I said about the adrenalin junkies, hopefully the sound of the gunshot and the heartbeat stopping will make them think. I personally have knowledge of two young men who made this mistake and lived to regret it (didn’t know them until they needed rehabilitation services). Enough of that!

    I see that we have much good news about Adam. I’m going to (try to) lurk for the rest of the evening and do a few RL things.

  96. CindyM

    I saw someone on this thread say that. And I’ve seen people on other boards say that. Not a lot of people, but a few.

  97. Again I think some people are overestimating Adam’s appeal. Look at the iTunes charts ‘” it’s Taylor Swift with 6 songs in the Top 11, plus Miley Cyrus and Britney. Anyone who thinks FYE is going to automatically go right to #1 is a little delusional IMO. It MAY get there, but it’s by no means a certainty.

    Can’t find one person who said that.

  98. CindyM

    I saw someone on this thread say that. And I’ve seen people on other boards say that. Not a lot of people, but a few.

    Some people started using the Xanax and Mimosas early and started mixing them. Never a good idea. Don’t drink until you hear the suck of the song, is what I always say. Okay I’ve never said that before now, but I’m going with it. I blame watching the Schoolhouse Rock with Bunker Hill in it the other day. What? Those rocked.

  99. David C is awesome I was and am a fan but not like this. I love/hate this :)

  100. David C is awesome I was and am a fan but not like this. I love/hate this

    Ha, yeah, I liked Idols every year (loved Bo Bice!) but never got invested like I did last year. And I definitely have had a love/hate relationship with it! So I really do feel your pain. It’s kinda fun to be one of the oldtimers, heh. Except for, again, I’m having like ugly angst flashbacks and I need to horn in on some of the mimosas. :)

  101. Again I think some people are overestimating Adam’s appeal. Look at the iTunes charts ‘” it’s Taylor Swift with 6 songs in the Top 11, plus Miley Cyrus and Britney.

    Thanks for warning us. Also, thanks for warning us that TFM wasn’t going to shoot to the top 10! I’m glad I did’t get my hopes up that a silly movie soundtrack might get into the top 10!
    BTW,I’ve read every post on this thread and can’t find a single fan who has mentioned any kind of expectations such as the ones you just posted. What thread did you see fans saying this? I want to go warn them!

  102. I found the person on here who says it’s going to go right to #1 (I was starting to think I was seeing things)

    I hope Entertainment SMASHES iTunes. I suspect it will.

    If it’s half as good as I am excited about it. It’ll rocket to #1 when it comes out’ ¦.of course keeping it there might be a challenge. I’m really counting on Adam to do a fabulous show at the AMA’s and follow that up with corresponding performances on a bunch of talk shows.

  103. girlygirl: I’m going to use your post to warn this ONE terribly excited fan.

    Again I think ONE PERSON IS overestimating Adam’s appeal. Look at the iTunes charts ‘” it’s Taylor Swift with 6 songs in the Top 11, plus Miley Cyrus and Britney. This fan who thinks FYE is going to automatically go right to #1 is a little delusional IMO. It MAY get there, but it’s by no means a certainty.

    Good job! I’m glad that you were able to track that down for us.

    hwc (aka “blowhard t*rd-in-disquise”)

    PS: I’m gonna sleep late in the morning. That way, when I wake up, I can go staight to MJ’s review and find out if the song is any good or not.

  105. Tiger92

    I’m sorry you took offense at my post. I’m just trying to stay realistic, and I’m sure if you went on the other AI related boards (especially on Adam’s official site) you would find a few other posters who are sure this single will shoot right to the top of the charts.

    I SAID it was only a few people, but they are out there.

  106. I found the person on here who says it’s going to go right to #1 (I was starting to think I was seeing things)

    There are so many posters so I understand that the conditions in that person’s poster were easy to be overlooked by you. No biggie. Your eyes are still good.

  107. Oooh, of course Ryan gets the scoop. Looking forward to it. I have a feeling it will be a bit more up my alley than TFM. :-)

  108. I was so happy to see “Fireflies” at #1. Such a cool little song. I heard it about a month ago and jumped on the bandwagon.

    While I really like PITUSA, Down, 3 and all that other crap in the top 10, it was nice to see something different at the top.

    I SAID it was only a few people, but they are out there.

    Maybe you should post your warnings over at the other AI boards, or direct your warning to the ONE PERSON who was clearly saying that “if FYE is half as good as I am excited, it will be #1”.
    The expectations around here are not what you described.

  111. Benton Paul tweeted that a new date has been added to the David Archuleta tour…

    BentonPaul: we did add a new tour date! DEC. 5 // Grand Junction, CO // all dates posted here: http://www.myspace.com/bentonpaul

    DavidArchie: @BentonPaul Sheesh you’re more on top of that than I am! I’m reading your tweets just so I know what’s going on lol

  112. I was so happy to see ‘Fireflies’  at #1. Such a cool little song. I heard it about a month ago and jumped on the bandwagon.

    While I really like PITUSA, Down, 3 and all that other crap in the top 10, it was nice to see something different at the top.

    Wait, you really like those songs, but you think they’re crap? Oh, ok! lol.

    I like Fireflies too. It’s cute and light and airy.

  113. I think Ramiele feels harassed by this person @ginncruz on twitter…

    ginncruz: @ramielemalubay wait. are u up here in ny/philly right now? if ur here, let me know. I WANT TO SEE YOU, Rami. why didn’t u call me?

    ramielemalubay: please leave me alone. I dont want to sound mean or rude but you are seriously making me uncomfortable. Please do not contact me anymore

    ramielemalubay: not through facebook, myspace, or by tweeting me. please stop Im going to have a restraining order put against you. YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE

    ramielemalubay: please do not show up to any of my shows, may they be near you or what. I appreciate your support but you have taken it too far.

    Chikezie_Eze: @ramielemalubay DM me the name of the person giving you problems.

    ramielemalubay: @Chikezie_Eze thats the thing no picture

  114. Ozarka,

    Haha. I remember reading in the past that DA read a fan site to see what he was going to be doing at times. I think he gets so busy, he can’t keep track.

  115. So from Allison’s Tweets, from ontd_ai; charmqn86 (and thanks for doing the Allison to English translations) promo starts in 2 weeks; She’ll have 13 tracks; New song titles include “Holiday” and “No one else.” She is doing a bubbletweet tomorrow with her band. Song “Beat Me Up,” will be on the album

  116. i guess there was a livestream of Sarver debuting his new single tonight at some event here in L.A. Did anyone happen to hear it?

  117. Results of the Rooling Stone Magazine poll on Adam’s CD cover

    http://www.rollingstone.com/community/polls/30692943/results

    52 percent didn’t care! Not sure if that is good or bad.

    Weird, it was 49% didn’t care when I clicked on that link. Anyhew, considering that cover, that’s probably a good thing if they’re willing to look beyond it. Or it could be yeah, the cover sucks, but it wouldn’t have mattered because they weren’t going to like Adam/his music regardless if the cover kicked total ass, and wasn’t utter failbot.

  118. Cover sucks … does not = fact
    Cover is great … does not = fact

    I liked it before and after reading that you all didn’t.
    Not everyone hates the cover.

    rolling my eyes here. This was meant to be an indication of my level of excitement, not a serious “It’s going to a #1”. It may hit it. It may not. That wasn’t what my post was about.

  120. Cover sucks ‘ ¦ does not = fact
    Cover is great ‘ ¦ does not = fact

    I liked it before and after reading that you all didn’t.
    Not everyone hates the cover.

    Because yes, I thought the entire internets had, for first time ever, come together in agreement on hating it. And thus, all minds were changed into not liking it who might have otherwise.

    Or maybe instead it was always acknowledged that people have differences of opinions and expressing them, even more than once, doesn’t mean that they are trying to change someone else’s mind or invalidate it, and yes, that goes for everyone. Huzzah!

    Which is to say, coolio (look at me breaking out my ’90s lingo) for you liking it, continue to do so as much as you want. And if people do want to change their minds in liking it, or disliking it, also groovy (ohh, going back to ’60s now). Just like it’s fine if people continue to mock and hate it *hand raised here*. It’s all good either way.

  121. Just like it’s fine if people continue to mock and hate it *hand raised here*.

    Mock is good. Everything and everyone should be mocked. Except here. Cause MJ won’t let me make mock of you guys. Which sucks because mock is my best language. Without mock, I’m left with snark in which I’m not nearly so versatile. So, Uh, Yeah, my point….

    You really hate the cover? As in you look at it and it makes you cringe the way Kris’s bf/cow/foot song makes me cringe and wish I were temporarily deaf?

    If so, all I have to say is: Good thing you can’t see my clothes.

    Night! I’m signing off until after The Debut tomorrow.

  122. Oh excellent! I can post about the fireflies and be totally on topic.

    girlygirl: I hate that ‘Fireflies’  song

    Me too! When I hear that song all I want to do is reach for the nearest can of Raid.

    Better now. :)

    Thank you, I don’t get why that’s so hard to comprehend. I love the cover too.

  128. Man, I REALLY love this song! Adam you outdid yourself baby. Keep up the good work, I cannot wait for the album. Can you imagine how sexy this song will sound on the AMA’s?! Hell yea!

  129. Danny reportedly has announced in a Milwaukee radio interview that his single will be out December 14th. Maybe he’s in town already for his appearance at the Milwaukee Bucks home opening game tomorrow night.

  130. I like this demo. I could see Adam really killing it. I have to admit I like this better than FYE {{ducks}} It’s more interesting musically.

  131. Well just catching up on a little reading from yesterday. Scary info on Ramielle. I hope this person listens and goes away.

    The E-card is cute, but yeah I couldn’t tell if that was DC or not. LOL.

    girlygirl, I admire your tenacity. :D I think when someone says something is going to #1 (if good), that’s what they mean. At least, I would be hesitant to say something like that unless I meant it. If not why the disclaimer?

  132. I also hope Ramiele will not go through what Diana DeGarmo did. Some fans become obsessed. Ramiele’s message makes it perfectly clear.

    Randy Jackson is getting a lot of publicity lately. Wouldn’t it be great if we could compliment him on some good judging? Hey, I can dream…

    For some reason, I thought Bo Bice was the first to play an instrument on AI. I am very happy that Jason is getting good press. Wishing him the very best!

    The only thing I would change about the album cover is to put a shirt on Adam. Otherwise, it is fine.
