Chidi Uzomah, 25, was told by a Los Angeles judge to stay at least 500 yards from Seacrest and not to attempt to contact him by phone for three years.

Uzomah was arrested on Friday at the Los Angeles offices of entertainment news outlet E!, where Seacrest hosts a morning radio show and a television newscast.

Uzomah faces up to four years in prison if convicted for stalking and a second charge of disobeying a previous stay away order. He was jailed pending a court hearing in two weeks to determine whether he should stand trial.

Steve Martin, Alec Baldwin to co-host Oscars

LOS ANGELES (AP) ‘” Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin are taking on the Oscars.

The two Hollywood veterans will share hosting duties at the 82nd Academy Awards, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences said Tuesday.

Telecast producers Bill Mechanic and Adam Shankman said Martin and Baldwin are “the perfect pair of hosts for the Oscars.” The producers have said they hope to resurrect Oscar’s ratings and make the show more fun by building on the changes introduced at February’s ceremony, which tinkered with the way awards were presented and featured Broadway-style musical interludes.

Bringing in a pair of hosts, while not unprecedented, continues the theme of change.

Jennifer Hudson On Her Late Mother: ‘She Was The Strongest Person I’ve Ever Seen’

CHICAGO, Ill. —

Chicago is the place where Jennifer Hudson’s rise to stardom began, but it’s also the place where tragedy struck her family.

Now, in an exclusive interview with Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson, Jennifer opened up about motherhood, the importance of family and how her mother ‘” her angel ‘” gave her the strength to go home again.

‘Do you feel her wherever you are?’  Shaun asked.

‘Oh my God, yeah. Definitely, ‘  Jennifer said of her late mother, Darnell Donnerson, who was killed in October 2008. ‘Wherever. Every day I’m like, ‘Wow! I didn’t realize I was so like my mother until now, you know?’ 

When asked where the strength she has demonstrated throughout the last year has come from, Jennifer said it comes in part ‘ from above.

Carrie Underwood’s ‘Play On’: Track-by-track

Reviewing Carrie Underwood’s Play On in Tuesday’s USA TODAY, Jerry Shriver writes, “On her third outing, the still-blossoming Idol alum with the sterling pipes invites a diverse handful of outsiders to join her proven Nashville-based songwriting/production team. They expand her sound and worldview just enough to perhaps lure more folks to the party while satisfying country radio programmers and her loyalists.” Since I did the interview pieces that ran in Monday’s paper, I didn’t write the official Play On review — but that doesn’t mean I can’t run down the album track-by-track for you guys.

Carrie Underwood Plays Up The ‘Sass’ With Kara DioGuardi On ‘Undo It’

Carrie Underwood and Kara DioGuardi might not have crossed paths on “American Idol, ” but the ladies did manage to hook up for a couple of tracks on the country singer’s just-released album, Play On. Underwood said working with the outspoken “Idol” judge has helped her embrace her sassy side.

“I love sass, ” she told CMT. “And this is what I think is great about the whole album. People have so many layers and so many different emotions and feelings, and throughout the album, we tapped into a lot of that.”

CARRIE UNDERWOOD – HOLIDAY SPECIAL SPOILER ALERT

So You Think You Can Dance Executive Producer Nigel Lythgoe and Dance judge Adam Shankman are co-Producing the Carrie Underwood: An All-Star Holiday Special, with Lythgoe taking on the directing duties.

According to Lythgoe, Underwood will poke a bit of fun at her rise from American Idol season four winner to the top of Country Music. And while both men agree that Underwood is a genuine superstar now (hardly surprising), they were shocked by what terrific comedy timing the Country Music star has.

Carrie Underwood on Mike Fisher: It’s Love!

Carrie Underwood may sing about heartbreak, but in real life she’s found love with boyfriend Mike Fisher, giving the hockey player a shout-out on the liner notes of her new CD, Play On.

“Thank you #12, ” she writes in the notes, referring to the Ottawa Senator player’s jersey number. “You are the most amazing addition to my life! You are such a wonderful person and have had such an amazing hand in the building of this album and in the growth of me as a person. I love you so much! You make my life better in every way! I thank God for you every day… xoxo, Carrie.”

Carrie Underwood CD Review: Back to What She Does Best

You might remember that I was pretty hard on Carrie’s last effort, ‘Carnival Ride, ‘  because I felt like she was trying too hard to prove that she’s a country artist. And after two songs I started to think I might have the same problem this time. But ‘Play’  manages to totally outdo ‘Ride’  by combining just the right combination of uptempo tracks and power ballads that concentrate more on the songs than what genre they are.

George Jones: new country music needs a new name

NASHVILLE, Tenn. ‘” Country Music Hall of Famer George Jones isn’t a big fan of where the genre has moved in recent years.

When asked about what he thought about music by today’s top country stars, the 78-year-old said while they are good, “they’ve stolen our identity.”

Jones made the comment during a recent interview when asked about music by artists like Carrie Underwood and Taylor Swift.

“They had to use something that was established already, and that’s traditional country music. So what they need to do really, I think, is find their own title, because they’re definitely not traditional country music, ” he said.

Adam Lambert’s For Your Entertainment: The 30-Second Snippets

Stock up on water, hide your children and do not look directly at its bright shimmering light, because 30-second song previews of have hit the Web. Pop music will never be the same!

OK, so there’s some hyperbole there. (Blame my inner Glambert for taking over.) So before I start claiming his body parts, let’s put on sci-fi lab-coats and break down the song previews in a (somewhat) level-headed manner.

Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo Calls Adam Lambert’s Voice ‘Amazing’

Cuomo said “Pick U Up” draws from a fantastically eclectic combination of sounds. “It sounds like a combination of ABBA, with beautiful pop melodies, and a disco beat like you’d hear in a Donna Summer song, ” he said. “But then there is this heavy guitar feel to it, like from [German techno-metal band] Rammstein or something. It’s just a wonderful hybrid of all the music I love.”

Cuomo clearly enjoyed his time with Lambert and was phenomenally impressed with his instrument. “He has the most amazing voice. It’s exactly the kind of voice I convince myself I have on my best day, but of course I’m nowhere near that amazing, ” he said.

Adam Lambert Song Clips Hit The Web

After months of hype, Glamberts finally got a chance on Tuesday (November 3) to check out Adam Lambert’s debut album, For Your Entertainment. And while the “American Idol” runner-up’s coming-out disc is still a few weeks away from its official November 23 release date, Amazon’s U.K. site posted 30-second clips of all the songs on the CD, which promises to be every bit as over-the-top as the singer has promised.

And, in case there was any doubt, the clips confirm his promise that “glam is back.”

Tokio Hotel Talks New Album, L.A., Adam Lambert & More

Bill, I like the look you have going on. Do you think Adam Lambert is trying to copy you?

BK: I don’t know, I’m not sure. I haven’t seen older pictures of him. [Haha]

Do you know who he is?

BK: Yeah, I know who he is. People have told me about that. We have that same show [“American Idol”] in Germany. I don’t know how he looked before, so I don’t know if he stole my look. Maybe he’s just wearing makeup all the time like me. I started to wear makeup when I was – I think – 12 years old, so I don’t know what his background is.

Live Review: Kelly Clarkson at Cedar Park Center

I want to hear Kelly Clarkson cut some modern R&B with R. Kelly and Ne-Yo and Christopher ‘Tricky’  Stewart.

I want to hear her make some more giant-sized pop with Swedish superproducer Max Martin (‘Since U Been Gone’ ) and Katy Perry (‘I Do Not Hook Up’ ).

I want to hear her do some blues-punk with the Dirtbombs or Jon Spencer. I want to hear a diva-off with Beth Ditto of the Gossip.

I want to hear her sing over beats by Timbaland, Kanye West and Dr. Dre. I want to hear her make 22nd century electronic music with LCD Soundsystem’s producer James Murphy; maybe she can sing that fake Yaz record Murphy’s always wanted to make. I want to hear her cover country songs by Willie Nelson and Sally Timms and Patty Griffin (Her take on Griffin’s ‘Up to the Mountain’  is devastating). I want to hear her Sinatra album and her album with the Foo Fighters.

Kara DioGuardi redeems herself

After penning the ridiculousness that was “No Boundaries, ” I thought Kara DioGuardi had lost her touch and her mind. But I’m happy to report that the woman who scripted Pink’s ‘Sober, ‘  Kelly Clarkson’s ‘I Do Not Hook Up’  and Cobra Starship’s ‘Good Girls Go Bad” was just having an off day judging from the song she contributed to Adam Lambert’s debut disc.

“Strut” is one of 14 songs on “For Your Entertainment” but easily my second favorite (can’t stop listening to the titular single). Now, I’m only judging from the 30-second sneak peek being offered up on Amazon.com but I feel confident that when the disc drops my claim will be reconfirmed.

Rod Stewart realizes dream recording with Smokey

LOS ANGELES ‘” Rod Stewart grew up idolizing soul singers like Sam Cooke, Jackie Wilson and Otis Redding. On his new album, “Soulbook, ” he gets a chance to pay tribute to his childhood idols in song ‘” and even gets a chance to sing with one of them on the CD.

Smokey Robinson is one of the guest stars on “Soulbook, ” which features Stewart singing some of soul music’s most revered tunes. It follows in Stewart’s trend of recording classic covers (he had a resurgence with his “Great American Songbook” album series).

The CD also features appearances by Mary J. Blige and Jennifer Hudson. “Soulbook” was released in October.

Fidler takes 46th District

But the voters weren’t the only ones singing his praises Tuesday. Some ‘celebrity talent’  was as well.

Beloved American Idol contestant Sanjaya Malakar was seen handing out Fidler palm cards outside the American Legion Post on Avenue N and East 56th Street in Mill Basin.

‘When I was told yesterday that he was coming I told them I’d believe it when I see it, ‘  Fidler said. ‘But he turned out to be a lovely, humble guy. Lots of people were excited to see him although not everyone recognized him because he didn’t have his pony-hawk.’ 

“So You Think You Can Dance”: Tapping out

As much as tonight’s cut might have hurt Nigel Lythgoe personally, I think it made sense and frankly I’m not surprised that tonight’s eliminated dancers went home. I had a feeling that a certain group would be a quick casualty of the show, and I was right. That group of course is: the tappers.

Actually, I was surprised that Bianca Revels and Phillip Attmore were eliminated before Peter Sabasino, asI thought the first two were favored by the judges, but at the very least in Phillip’s case, it was apparent before his dance was even finished that he and possibly his partner Channing Cooke would be in the bottom three. Their struggles were embarrassingly evident during their Tony Meredith and Melanie LaPatin samba: the way Phillip lifted Channing made it look like she must have weighed 50 pounds more than she did and neither one got the knack of putting their hips into their dance. It was very sad though to hear Phillip reveal that his father recently passed away, but it was heartwarming to hear that so many of his fellow contestants joined him at the funeral.

‘Dancing With the Stars’ recap: The Same Old Song

Another week, another non-shocking double elimination on season 9 of Dancing With the Stars! NFL star Michael Irvin got the boot first, and everyone is a little sad because he was friendly and exceedingly into it. It’s unlikely we’ll miss much about his dancing, but we may very well miss his abs (see next page). Michael will miss the roaring studio audience most of all, because it’s nice to hear something like that ”when the economy is so bad.” Random! Later, after a dance-off between Mark Dacascos and Aaron Carter, the stupid judges sent Mark home, even though Aaron has been in the bottom 3 like forever. We’ll miss you, Mark. Your Dancing With the Stars tombstone in my mind shall read: ”He Liked To Move It.”

‘So You Think You Can Dance’ recap: Fearless

I don’t know about you, fellow So You Think You Can Dance fans, but last night’s performance/elimination extravaganza has left me more depressed than Jon Corzine’s memory-foam mattress. (Topical humor!) Not only did our foppish British judge unwisely choose to cut our sole female tapper, but a just-ousted Phillip also informed us that his father had passed away little more than a week ago. Add those two sad pieces of information to the fact that last night’s performances left much to be desired, and you’ve got an episode worthy of the frown-y face emoticons Mollee likely texts to pals when her Tamagotchi runs out of batteries. :-( :-( :-(

  1. Yeah Bill, Adam is totally stealing YOUR look. Knob.

    Hmmm, Alec and Steve could be interesting, but the changes they have been making to the Oscars, well some of them suck. I remember the on year, Chris Rock hosted (and I thought was funny), when they didn’t allow the “little,” people to go up on stage to accept their awards and just like had them stand up. I believe Chris called it the ghetto Oscars, like it was drive-thru and they could just toss the Oscars to people. Yeah, glad that “innovation,” didn’t last the next year. But not sure about these Broadway style musical numbers inbetween. Because yeah, the dance numbers at the Oscars have always gone over so well and are totally the best part of the show. Uh hunh.

    The Oscars should do what every show evidently needs to do and have Neil Patrick Harris host it. Problem solved!

  2. Wasn’t the dude arrested and ordered to stay away from Ryan before? Does it take him killing or seriously hurting somebody to keep him away? WTF is this?

  3. Today is David Archuleta Day on Heartbeat FM. They were playing his songs and ONLY his songs (from his 2 albums, EPs, and the AI show) for 3 solid hours straight, from 6am to 9am ET.

  4. Alec and Steve… a perfect example of why I skip watching the oscars every year.

  5. Live Nation has Daughtry listed as touring with Nickelback for their European tour early next year. These dates were listed at some music forum too:

    17 Jan 2010 : Echo Arena, Liverpool (UK)
    19 Jan 2010 : Wembley Arena, London (UK)
    21 Jan 2010 : Salle Saint Jakob, Basel (Switzerland)
    24 Jan 2010 : Intersport Arena, Linz (Austria)
    26 Jan 2010 : SAP Arena, Mannheim (Germany)
    27 Jan 2010 : RockHal, Esch/Alzette (Luxembourg)
    29 Jan 2010 : Arena, Oberhausen (Germany)
    30 Jan 2010 : Olympia Halle, Munich (Germany)
    01 Feb 2010 : ColorLine Arena, Hamburg (Germany)

  6. I’m loving Brian Mansfield’s track by track reviews. I wonder if he’ll do those for Kradison? But I think the Carrie and Archie reviews were especially good because country and Christmas songs are his thing. I wonder how he’d fare for dance/pop, pop/rock album reviews… I hope he takes a shot at them.

  7. Not sure where to put this sort of thing, but here seems safe.
    Kris has another appearance which I don’t see listed. It’s Friday the 6th at a charity function; it’s sold out, but perhaps someone who posts or lurks here is going and can let us know if he does anything new. Here’s the webpage http://www.firstladies.dreamfoundation.org/
    Would be interesting to see what he would choose to do at this type of event. It sounds like more of an acoustic thing, but one never knows.

    Oh, and I hope Cale makes it to Cali without getting pulled over again. What’s with these Arkansas men and buckling in “dolls”?

  8. Peeps here have been asking who from American Idol will be at this year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The answer: Katherine McPhee.

  9. WOw! I am loving all the great reviews on Adam’s CD snippets! Can’t wait untill 11/23. It would be great if they would release another single also but I don’t even know which one there are several that would just kill. YAY!

    I wish I had known about Kris performing at the Dream Foundation event. Santa Barbara is just up the road from here and I could have easily have gone — if someone from Kris’ management had actually publicized the fact! There is a YouTube video from last year’s event, so hopefully there will be one this year.

  12. Cuomo clearly enjoyed his time with Lambert and was phenomenally impressed with his instrument.

    Is there some kind of hidden message they are trying to pass along here, or are the copywriters at MTV just having some fun with us?

  13. Carrie’s CMT Invitation Only premiered on Dish Network last night. It’ll be on CMT on December 1st. But people got some caps of Temporary Home and Undo It from the new album!

    Temporary Home

    Undo It

    The Undo It video’s out of sync but she sounds great! Temporary Home sounds amazing. This was the 1st time Carrie was singing it for a live audience and the 1st time anybody other than the people making the album had heard it.

  14. Here’s another clue, taken from an article on Billboard.com, about how badly album sales have declined…

    “Overall album sales in this past chart week (ending Nov. 1) totaled 6.31 million units, up 10% compared to the sum last week (5.72 million) and down 9% compared to the same sales week of 2008 (6.96 million). Year to date album sales stand at 287.6 million, down 13% compared to the same total at this point last year (332.3 million).”

  15. Oh, and I hope Cale makes it to Cali without getting pulled over again. What’s with these Arkansas men and buckling in ‘dolls’ ?

    you noticed too!…that was pretty funny! buckling ET in the passenger seat for his road trip ..i guess Cale feels out of this world with this change in his life.. haha

  16. Since I totally missed the party yesterday :) … thanks for the acoustic David Cook performances of Lie & Mr. Sensitive. I LOVE AcousticDave… love, love, love. Ask vascot about my reaction to seeing him with the acoustic guitar in Richmond and knowing we were getting an acoustic performance of *something*. I think I swooned a little. Or maybe flailed?

  17. Allison is #78 on the iTunes chart as of 8 a.m. Pacific Coast time (#29 on pop chart)

    Would be interesting to see what he would choose to do at this type of event. It sounds like more of an acoustic thing, but one never knows.

    LLWD is not just a song for the organization. The people they’re serving are really dying. I’m glad he’s doing this.

  20. OT:

    it’s the 40th anniversary of Sesame Street. Wow, that brings back memories…and now I want a cookie (cookie monster was my favorite)

  21. LOL..My local Albuquerque radio station just did their gossip daily dish. Their lead? The Adam Lambert snippets. Explained they were on the web, that people were flocking to hear his music and that his album is highly anticipated. The guy DJ said he liked some of the snippets, but he’s more a Mad World Adam kind of guy. His wife, the Co-DJ, said “Yum, I like Adam any way I can get him, scream at me Adam!”. Then her husband told her, “you do know, well, you don’t have a chance, right?” She just laughed a dirty kind of laugh and said, “A girl can dream.” lol. I just thought it was funny to be the lead story on their gossip segment, they then went into the Chris Martin/Kate Bosworth rumors.

  22. Akatot

    Kris played LLWD at the Bosom Ball breast cancer event and I didn’t see any big protest about that, although some fans posted before the event that they thought it might be inappropriate. So he might perform it at this event on Friday as well.

  23. I Just Died In Your Arms Tonight video from last night’s David Cook show… sounds like from reading recaps that security was not video-friendly so guess we’re lucky to have anything!

    If you like Neal… or just amazing guitar work… nice shot of his guitar solo!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7l3gkCroLDE

  24. Thanks girlygirl for the link to Kris’s radio interview from this morning. I never knew the backstory to “kick awesome” so that was cool. Funny that Kris promised never to say it again. So Kris said a couple of shows in New York. Regis and Kelly is one… anyone know what the other is?

    ETA: answered my own question– GMA.

  25. The Oscars should do what every show evidently needs to do and have Neil Patrick Harris host it. Problem solved!

    I would prefer they get Ricky Gervais but apparently the Golden Globes already snatched him up. At least at the Globes, he can carry around a drink in his hand all night.

  26. big pic of Adam on front page of USA today website in connection with redcarpet premiere photos

  27. tierbee – thanks for that concert video. glad they got past the camera police. also glad we got those acoustic songs yesterday.

  28. CindyM, Which Albuquerque station? I listen to KOB-FM and KPEK-FM in hopes of Adam songs but haven’t heard anything yet (also listen to Hits-1 and the Pulse-12 on Sirius).
    And if they’re talking snippets, are they playing ANY Adam non-snippet songs?

  29. LOL..My local Albuquerque radio station just did their gossip daily dish.

    The DC radio morning shows talk about him pretty often too. Just today they mentioned Adam in connection to Chris Brown’s album cover being compared to his as “controversial”.

  30. It was KPEK. They didn’t play any snippets, but they have officially added FYE to their playlist. It was in the early daily dish this morning. I don’t think they’ve played FYE yet, but you can listen to it on the website through their “in demand” option. You could probably request it be played through email or call in at noon I think.

  31. Just to recap, for me:

    I can’t stand Alec Baldwin – he’s a little pig.

    Love the track by track review of Carrie – ITA.

    George Jones needs to get over it.

    Jordin’s halloween costume – oh my! She’s all dirty and bloody and holding hands with a boy!

  35. FOR YOUR ENTERTAINMENT NOW ON ITUNES!!!!!

    I don’t see it. I haven’t bought it yet because I was waiting to buy it there just because it’s easier. But I don’t see it???

  36. wow, what a grab bag today!

    I’ve been over Rod Stewart (we used to call him “Rod the Mod” back in the Iron Age) for decades, but I must confess that hearing him with Smokey and doing soul songs (which is what he was always best at, IMO) is rather enticing.

    Meanwhile, Constantine is his usual obnoxious self.

    And anybody have a good link to hear Adam’s new stuff in full?

  37. I had read in 2 different recaps of DC’s show last night he talked about Carrie but I haven’t seen a single thing indicating what he said..!? I don’t frequent every single board there is so I may have missed details, but um, does anyone know what he said exactly? I saw one mention referencing to her special but does anyone know the context?

  38. Hey girlygirl and mtlfan, I missed the story about Cale being pulled over with something buckled in the car, what did I miss? Where does one get Cale info?

  39. Does anyone here know the person who made the you-tube video of FYE with the colorized version of the photo used for the single?
    The NYP article has that video at the end of their article, with that gorgeous colorized photo showing pretty large!
    Sadly, when you click on the video, it says you-tube has removed it due to copyright restrictions.
    I just thought wherever she is she might want to know they used her video and her gorgeous photo!

    I know MagicalLadee made a colorized version of the picture and she makes Adam videos all the time. Maybe it was her? She has a youtube channel I believe.

    Wow, wow, and triple wow. Mix 96.9 has now posted Cook’s accoustic Heroes from yesterday’s visit at their station.

    I love Cook acoustic. He did an acoustic show at the radio station here in ABQ before his Santa Fe concert.

    ETA: We’re down to 15 comments per page now?? That’s a lot of having to click back for previous posts!

  43. yeah im not fond of the 15 comments per page thing….. yikes.. especially with no page numbers to click on

  44. What I do is go back one page and then change the page number on the address bar. Works for me without having to keep going back a bunch of pages.

  45. Trina, you asked if anyone knew what Cook said about Carrie during his concert last night. A recap was posted on the tour thread that mentioned it. Here is lovethemusic’s quote:

    He did take the time to tell us to buy Carrie’s album and joked that he wanted to stay friends with her. He did say that he was amazed that she listens to his music and that she liked the next song (Lie).

  46. Thanks for the deets about the Carrie mention, wordnerdarchie. Really wanna see a vid of that. Is it me, or was this show light on the post-show recaps for being an arena show and the guys’ first show back from a long-ish break? I don’t frequent every board but I was trolling DCO for recaps, and didn’t see very many recaps. Maybe it’s still early, and I’m just overeager do to the long break =P.

    Mix 96.9 has now posted Cook’s accoustic Heroes from yesterday’s visit at their station.

    Nice! They also posted some Q&As, yes! Love hearing him talk almost as much as I love me some acoustic Dave, heh. Though I’m a little bummed about the future prognosis for the Ficus show. For once, I think DC read into Jim’s MTV blog about it too much. Jim may have asked if he was jaded, but I wouldn’t go so far as to say it was “pseudo-backlash”. The response was mostly complimentary.

    I heard they also did LO. Is that true? Wonder if they’d post that. If they didn’t do LO, then DC would’ve done NO released singles at a radio acoustic gig. Isn’t that weird. Also, was this posted?

    yeah im not fond of the 15 comments per page thing’ ¦.. yikes.. especially with no page numbers to click on

    Word… this sucks.

  47. Wow, wow, and triple wow. Mix 96.9 has now posted Cook’s accoustic Heroes from yesterday’s visit at their station.

    Niiiiice! I love, love, love him acoustic. I wish we could see more of Neal on some of those songs… I also love watching him play guitar, he’s fricking amazing.

  48. Crap, the edit thing isn’t working. Please mentally delete the “also was this posted” sentence from my previous post. While you’re at it, change “do to” to “due to” lol. Argh.

  49. Has DC ever done “Heroes” acoustic? I don’t think I’ve ever heard it that way. It was very nice, although I kept wanting to sing the backup. There were probably a lot of moving lips in that room with no sound coming out.

  50. I love watching Neal play guitar acoustic with David Cook, though I could have watched an entire video of just David Cook .answering questions.

    and it sure is good to have Cookie concerts again, after a whole 2 weeks without them.

  51. I heard they also did LO. Is that true?

    Yeah, they did. That was the one the station chose to play.

  52. wordnerdarchie thank you! I cant access at DCO on my work computer so I would have never seen that. I hope video turns up!

  53. Ah I found another description of the Carrie mention via Jane62 at the WNH

    talked about being on Carrie’s holiday special and that he sang Lie, and how she said it was her fave from his record, and how she sells a lot of records so he’s happy she even listens to his record let alone has a favorite! And how they’ve become friends and we should buy her record so they STAY friends, LOL.

    Can someone clue him in that Avalanche is apparently her new fave? lol Cause then maybe he’ll actually play it..heh.

  54. salt lake tribune just interviewed david, they should have a written article up around the 15th

    http://blogs.sltrib.com/burger/index.php?p=5188&more=1&c=1&tb=1&pb=1

    David, who is learning guitar to go along with piano, is spending all this week and next week writing songs with producers as he works on an album with an unknown release date. He spent some time in Nashville several weeks ago and also wrote while he was there. “I’m learning how to become a songwriter,” he said.

    He has goals for his next album, though. “I just want my personality to come out,” he said. “I want this music to have some character ‘” my character. I want my stories to be in here.”

    David burger’s(slt) twitter:
    Just found out that David Archuleta is writing a book, due out in 2010. “It’s about trusting in myself,” he said. Can’t wait to read it.

    Ha. I thought the latter was part of the quote.

  56. sassy, it is’ ¦ its part of his tweet. lol

    David Archuleta said he can’t wait to read his own book?

  57. sassy.. no… not davids quote.. lol his is in quotations.. i figured you meant I tacked it on to the end of the guys tweet.

    To the right of the Adam pic in the NY post there is a pic of Kris (under Pop Pics). When you move the cursor over it says Who is the Sexiest Man Alive? Click on it and go to #16 and you’ll see Kris! Love the shot of him sticking out his tongue! As cute as he is, he can’t hold a candle to Johnny Depp, though, for my vote.

    http://www.nypost.com/p/blogs/popwrap/who_is_the_sexiest_man_alive_JiMWdJgO12ZCsp9d4fHSLN?photo_num=16

    Haha, that’s cool that Kris gets a mention for being sexy, but couldn’t they use a much sexier picture to go along with it? lol! Maybe the man in the mirror pic or something?!

  59. wordnerdarchie – thank you for the link to Mix96.9. I didn’t get a chance to listen last night, and just had a wonderful lunch hour getting my fix. Lots of DC goodies on that site.

    He’s so charming and funny in the Q & A’s and I adore his acoustic versions of Mr. S and Heroes (loving Lie is kind of a given for me). His VOICE!

    But, boo to no more Ficus installments. Was there really backlash? I didn’t see any anywhere.

  60. gulfluv, yeah, the man in the mirror pic is sexier! I guess they went with more of a fun-loving, cute pose. Oh well, still great for Kris being suggested for People mag’s big honor!

    I actually love the fun, tongue-sticking-out picture. I personally think he deserves higher than #16 (though I can’t really fault them for ranking Jon Hamm and Michael C. Hall higher). Unless it’s no rank, just random, lol!

  62. Thanks for the link to that DC concert review. Nice. One of the recappers on DCO said that Arizona crowds don’t usually go nuts but last night’s show was the loudest AZ crowd she’d ever been in. So it seems the newspaper reviewer was impressed by the artist-audience interaction. DC is always so good with that — and the fans reciprocate in kind.

    I love his Carrie mention. Someone should tell him that Carrie changed her mind and decided that Avalanche was her favorite DC song (per her iTunes playlist) instead of Lie. Then maybe he’ll sing it . . .

    . . . Carrie me down
    rolling in your arms
    cause I can’t remember
    ever falling this hard

    (Okay, I know it was “carry” and not Carrie, but you gotta let me ship my Idol Ken and Barbie, even if it’s a fruitless endeavor that will never happen.)

  63. Thanks much for the link to the concert review for DC – nice one! His personality is such a huge part of why his shows are so much fun. He’s a charmer, that David Cook :)

  64. I agree with George Jones, today’s country music is not country music.
    Name it anything, but not country. I was raised on country. Call it pop-country. Carrie Underwood does not sing country. JMHO

  65. For some reason I can’t edit my post but Glee looks headed for a top 5 debut with their album with 100-125k. Good numbers for them too!

  66. Those are some awesome numbers for Carrie. It will make her one of the best first weeks this year, no?

  67. Holy cow, windmills! Those are some impressive numbers.

    I don’t remember back in July whether Daughtry had the same kind of everywhere-at-once rollout, with the big banner in iTunes (though that seems to be a feature of the new iTunes software), or whether it’s just Carrie getting this type of rollout because she’s on her third album and had no sophomore slump curse on her at all.

  68. Damn it! What happened to the edit function?

    ETA: I didn’t mean to imply that Daughtry was experiencing some kind of sophomore slump — only that Carrie was past that particular curse and passed with flying colors.

  69. I don’t remember back in July whether Daughtry had the same kind of everywhere-at-once rollout, with the big banner in iTunes (though that seems to be a feature of the new iTunes software), or whether it’s just Carrie getting this type of rollout because she’s on her third album and had no sophomore slump curse on her at all.

    iTunes didn’t have that feature back in July. I believe Daughtry got the top banner at the right side and the biggest surprise was Brooke White getting the middle top spot LOL.

  70. I can’t edit my post too… Great numbers for Carrie! I expect it to go even higher especially since she has a TV appearance almost every day until next week.

  71. I like the silly one :D you really can’t go wrong with a camera and Kris. … :)

  72. I expect it to go even higher especially since she has a TV appearance almost every day until next week.

    Actually all she has left for TV this week is Regis & Kelly on Thursday. But she’s got a ton of TV coming up after this week: Robin Roberts’s primetime pre-CMA special next Tuesday, CMAs next Wednesday, then lots of late night TV + Ellen + AMAs the week after that. Then the Christmas special Dec 7th.

    I think the year’s highest first week numbers have been by people like Eminem, U2, and Jay-Z, all 400k and better. What I’m hoping is that Carrie’s setting up to have a good holiday season with her album sales and then hold up like country albums usually do with good radio play for follow up singles after that.

    Cute Kris photoshoot!

    I see Allison is getting a Pink song too. I’m glad she’s getting a cowrite on there since she liked that song she wrote with David Hodges so much and the Dave Bassett song made it too!

  73. Thanks Cindy, love the caption

    Last night was the world premiere of disaster porn granddaddy Roland Emmerich’s new movie, “2012” and all the stars came out. John Cusack, Amanda Peet, Thandie Newton and a bunch of other arty actors that I’m still in shock agreed to green screen it. But my two favorite red carpet walkers were Camilla Belle and Adam Lambert.
    Since we’re gentlemen over here at PopWrap,

    I’ll address the lady first. Adam Camilla opted for a dress that looked to have been modeled after the wall-of-water filled trailer that have been scaring moviegoers for months. The cresting waves and crashing tides looked smashing as the whirlpool on her skirt smartly sucked in a few peacocks before dissolving into oblivion.

    As for Adam, this studded ja-a-a-a-a-a-acket was eye-catching, even by his platform bootie standards. But I loved it — as I do everything he wears, does, says, sings, applies.

  74. Go Carrie! Awesome projection. Carrie storm, indeed.

    Hm, country music has evolved. Looks the Grand Ole Opry, the CMA, and the ACMs all consider Carrie Underwood country. ACM Entertainer of the year, and 3 time best female performer. I’d say Carrie is solidly the face of country, and I think Nashville is more than okay with that.

  75. Kris will be presenting the nominations for the Peoples Choice Awards next Tuesday!

  76. “Leave This Town” opened at #1 and sold 269,000 copies its first week. So nope, Daughtry really didn’t have a sophomore slump either. The band got a magazine cover and also a lot of TV promo, but nothing like Carrie. Carrie will be on multiple magazine covers. Carrie Storm, y’all.

    Jordin, however, had a very bad debut sales week.

  77. There is something wrong with Adam’s twitter account…he is losing all of his followers and is following no one..he is losing 10,000 followers every few minutes…could he be hacked?

    http://twitter.com/adamlambert

  78. Kris will be presenting the nominations for the Peoples Choice Awards next Tuesday!

    Seriously? Wow. 19 is really working the nomination presentation circuit this year.

  79. Yes! I never watch these things, but I wonder if he will get to be a presenter or something during the actual show…

  80. Kris will be presenting the nominations for the Peoples Choice Awards next Tuesday!

    Good for him. Looking forward to seeing this.

  81. Basically they are saying it is so bad, it’s almost good.

    LOL. It’s fun to write and read a review for an absolutely terrible film.

    When I saw the trailer back in the summer (before I knew that Adam was involved with the soundtrack), I started laughing and I wasn’t alone. It was just so over the top ridiculous. It’s interesting to hear that the entire movie is like that. LOL. Can’t wait for the 2013 sequel.

  82. Basically they are saying it is so bad, it’s almost good.

    I got that with The Day After Tomorrow when in the theatre watching it with one of my best friendboy and we couldn’t help, but start laughing at it. Our favourite was The Cold that made noises and apparantly could freeze airline fuel but could be thwarted by doors and fires. Oh and knock knock. Landshark, er I mean deadly cold. Er Candygram. I bought the DVD (waaaay on sale) for another friend so we could lulz at it. It practically writes it’s on MST3K.

    So I expect nothing less from 2012 and I might go see it in the theatre for a mantinee show during Monday afternoon, for a few laughes.

  83. Oh, but I expect 2012 to bomb financially. We’ll see, but it’s not Transformers2, more like 10,000 BC.

  84. Hm I’m just getting around now to watching this Q&A video DC did yesterday. When he talks about writing and getting into the studio January/February he says “you know, with the new Idol season starting up, he kinds of smiles and says “with Idol Gives Back and all that, we may do something..”. Almost sounds like he might record something for that?

    I’m so happy with Carrie’s numbers! I had hoped around 300k but if she can manage 350k I’ll be ecstatic!

    Well, Kris is nominated right? So, maybe he’ll get to present or perform on the show too!

  86. Oh, but I expect 2012 to bomb financially. We’ll see, but it’s not Transformers2, more like 10,000 BC.

    Oh, I don’t know, what else are you going to do on Thanksgiving weekend? Nothing says happy holidays like leftovers and disaster porn.

  87. Well, Kris is nominated right? So, maybe he’ll get to present or perform on the show too!

    No one knows who is nominated yet. Hence, why Kris will be announcing the nominees next week.

  88. Basically they are saying it is so bad, it’s almost good.

    I got that with The Day After Tomorrow when in the theatre watching it with one of my best friendboy and we couldn’t help, but start laughing at it.

    I laughed a lot throughout The Day After Tomorrow as well, but that film actually did well financially! It grossed like $500 million worldwide or something. And Jake Gyllenhaal was really cute in it :). Heh. Yeah, if 2012 does as well as TDAT, that’d be great. 10,000 BC on the other hand…

    Very cool that Kris got a high profile gig! Well, not as high as AMAs, but still national TV, right?

  89. Oh, the PRELIMINARY nominees for the People’s Choice Awards were announced weeks ago. I thought they were the final nominations. Kris and Adam were both listed for Breakout Music Star, I just didn’t realize it was a preliminary list of 12 to be voted on to reduce the number to five. I bet anything that Kris is one of the nominees for the categories though. The People’s Choice Awards is one where for the actual show, the winner is already informed prior to the show.

    So, cool for Kris!

  90. Yeah it would be weird if he was announcing the nominees but get the shaft in his category. So I agree with you CindyM– he probably is nominated.

  91. “When I saw the trailer back in the summer (before I knew that Adam was involved with the soundtrack), I started laughing and I wasn’t alone. It was just so over the top ridiculous. It’s interesting to hear that the entire movie is like that. LOL. Can’t wait for the 2013 sequel.”

    Kirsten, that’s assuming we all survive the end of the world in 2012.

  92. With all those choices in http://www.kris-pics.net/v/photos/photoshoots/0911portrait/portrait-nov09-01.jpg.html, they pick the silly one for the ‘Sexiest Man alive’ .

    snlw, where is this silly one you’re referring? All is see is awesomeness :)

    awww… he is so handsome and has beautiful hazelnut eyes…. -hyperventilating here..:)

    Very cool that he got the gig of the People choice award!

    For the movie 2012, i think it s/b a popular one. I’ve looked at the trailers and the special effects seem spectacular. I might go see it or more likely to rent it when it hits the video stores

  93. Yeah it would be weird if he was announcing the nominees but get the shaft in his category. So I agree with you CindyM’“ he probably is nominated.

    On the other hand, isn’t it a little weird to announce yourself being nominated. What are you supposed to do? Stop and say “Yay, me!”? AFAIK, Paula, Snoop and Adam didn’t get AMA nominations. IDK. But then the People’s Choice Award is all about making sure the winners are there so maybe he is nominated. Could go either way.

  94. When he talks about writing and getting into the studio January/February he says ‘you know, with the new Idol season starting up, he kinds of smiles and says ‘with Idol Gives Back and all that, we may do something..’ . Almost sounds like he might record something for that?

    He is such a tease. vascot, are you on here? Do you remember in I think Richmond when he played one of those not-on-the-album songs and said something about maybe we’d hear it again sometime? Did I hear that because he said it or because I really wanted to?!

  95. lol Kirsten, i guess Kriss will do the announcement for another category? no?

  96. Who is he announcing with? I assume he’s not doing it on his own. They’ll probably have someone else read that category, just in case!

  97. So Adam announced the AMA nominees and Kris will announce the PCA nominees. Will Allison announce the Grammy nominees this December? :p

  98. Don’t know if this has been posted by Kris has changed his twitter form Krisallen4real to just @krisallen

  99. http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1625535/20091104/archuleta__david.jhtml

    “I’m hoping that at least some of the songs I’ve written this time around will be able to make it on to the record,” Archuleta recently told MTV News. “I don’t think songs have to be like these super-#1-smash-hit-sounding songs, because I think it’s more important that it’s like, ‘Hey! This is coming out of me. This is something I connect with. This is something that I like to sing.’ ”

    In addition to pushing himself as a songwriter, Archuleta hints that he might cover more genres on the next album. “Even if it’s, like, different styles of music … when you write, it’s like, ‘Yeah, even though these songs are different, they’re David songs.’ And you can’t say anything different. You can’t say, ‘Oh, that’s not a David song.’ It’s like, ‘Well, yeah it is because it’s my story and I wrote about it and it’s coming out of me!’ ”

    Fans worried the 19 year-old cherubic singer might pull a Kelly Clarkson and release a dark, moody collection of tunes a la My December needn’t fret. “[I’ll] still look for the radio-friendly music and stuff. I want the stories to be more relatable to what I wanna talk about,” Archuleta said, adding, “It’s, like, fun music! But you can tell that it’s my story. And I like that.”

  112. wordnerdarchie…wow…timely drop off of that video of the David’s. I do not get the constant comparison of idols as each one different and will have their own path in life.

  113. Thanks, wordnerdarchie. I heart the both of them. I didn’t watch S7 when it was on (caught some eps on that reality show channel) and became a fan of both after the fact. This was great to see.

    Oh, wow, truthiness ‘” I love that! I have one of those and can never figure out how to describe him!

    Well it started because if I said my boyfriend, the wrong things were assumed, and my best friend (who happened to be a boy) was too long. So I shortened it to friendboy. Feel free to use it at will.

    Meanwhile, awww Kris mentioned meeting with Adam and Allison. Yay! Kradison FTMFW!

    Wow..just wow. I’m not one for montages but this is beautiful. That moment where he says “I told him I love him” and you hear Archie say “I think he said I love you” where is that from? *tears* I so hope David goes to Archie’s show in KC next month.

  120. A street team has been set up for Kris on his official site: http://www.krisallenofficial.com, and also Kris will be announcing the nominees for the People’s Choice Awards.

    @peopleschoice Kris Allen to present nominees for PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARDS 2010! Come back here Tuesday for live pics of event!

  121. Thanks, ozarka,

    David Archuleta is featured in the November issue of Portrait magazine! They have reproduced the article in full on their website’ ¦

    http://www.portraitmagazine.net/archives/davidarchuleta.html

    The writer of the article summarized well in a concise manner. His short life has full of stories. The first song he sang from the Les Miserables at age 6 is Castle on a Cloud. heh.

  122. I don’t usually get much into the fan montages, but that vid of the Davids actually made me a little misty. So much laughter in those clips. It also cracks me up how Cook is constantly manhandling Archie, when it seems pretty clear that Arch is not a real touchy-feely kind of guy.

    I know Dave has said he plans to go to one of Archie’s holiday shows. The KC date seems like a good bet since Cook is taking the rest of December off after the tour wraps on 12/2. I sure hope we at least get some Twitterage.

  123. Can’t wait for the 2013 sequel.

    OMG. It’s in the works.

    EW

    ‘The plan is that it is 2013 and it’s about what happens after the disaster,’  Emmerich told EW while walking the red carpet for the 2012 premiere Tuesday. ‘It is about the resettling of Earth. That is very, very fascinating. (2012 writer/producer) Harald Kloser and I came up with the idea and we have the luxury of having a producer on the film who is a big TV producer, Mark Gordon. We said to Mark, ‘Why don’t you do a TV show that picks up where the movie leaves off and call it 2013?’ I think it will focus on a group of people who survived but not on the boats ‘ ¦ maybe they were on a piece of land that was spared or one that became an island in the process of the crust moving. There are so many possibilities of what they could do and I’d be excited to watch it.’ 

  124. Wow..just wow. I’m not one for montages but this is beautiful. That moment where he says ‘I told him I love him’  and you hear Archie say ‘I think he said I love you’  where is that from? *tears* I so hope David goes to Archie’s show in KC next month.

    Trina, that was from Access Hollywood’s interview with Archie after the finale. Here’s the link…

  125. Trina – Wow..just wow. I’m not one for montages but this is beautiful. That moment where he says ‘I told him I love him’  and you hear Archie say ‘I think he said I love you’  where is that from? *tears* I so hope David goes to Archie’s show in KC next month.

    When Cook was announced the winner and he and Archie hugged, you could tell that they said something to each other. Though you couldn’t see Archie’s face you could see Cook nod slightly in acknowledgment.

    Afterwards, during the press stuff, a girl from Access Hollywood asked Cook what they said to each other. Cook said that he had told Archie that he loved him and that Archie had told him that he was proud of him. Later she asked Archie the same question, and that’s when Archie said “I think he said I love you.”

  126. Well, I should have just waited for Ozarka to whip that interview up. ROFL! Could have saved my typing fingers. haha!

  127. Oh god thats seriously like the sweetest thing. Where the heck was I?? I dont know how I missed that. Like I didn’t find the last moments with those two on the finale touching enough.

  128. The most ‘lol’  moment for me between the Davids

    I think this is the most “lol” moment. It’s so absurd but so funny. LOL
    That fanvid is fantastic. I guess with time Archie got used to those Cook hugs.

  129. I think this is the most ‘lol’  moment. It’s so absurd but so funny.

    How did I miss that one?! LOL!

  130. I think this is the most ‘lol’  moment. It’s so absurd but so funny. LOL That fanvid is fantastic. I guess with time Archie got used to those Cook hugs.

    I remember that! That was definitely absurd. What in the world were they doing there? I felt like I was in the middle of a performance of “South Pacific.”

  131. I know Dave has said he plans to go to one of Archie’s holiday shows. The KC date seems like a good bet since Cook is taking the rest of December off after the tour wraps on 12/2. I sure hope we at least get some Twitterage.

    I’ll be at that one, I really hope he goes :D. Also, this morning the djs here were talking about DC’s next tour and I hope to go to that one too.

  132. I Just Died In Your Arms Tonight video from last night’s David Cook show’ ¦ sounds like from reading recaps that security was not video-friendly so guess we’re lucky to have anything!

    If you like Neal’ ¦ or just amazing guitar work’ ¦ nice shot of his guitar solo!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7l3gkCroLDE

    Thanks for posting this tierbee! DC just gets better and better! Also, Neal’s guitar work just takes my breath away sometimes! He was amazing in the acoustic vids as well and like someone said I wish they would have shown him and his playing more.

    Don’t get me wrong I can always watch DC sing and play and never grow tired of it! Loved the Q&A’s as well!

    Here’s YouTube link from Kris’ radio interview this morning.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EgLxPfO5qSs&feature=player_embedded

    This was funny. Thanks for posting girlygirl!

  133. LOL, I was back on the first page and then came here to see that beautiful montage. I remember a lot of those moments from S7!

    The David’s friendship video was put together so beautifully and the song was beautiful too! It was perfect for the background. The title meant Light in reference to the friendship. How fitting.

  134. According to Rince25 on IDF…

    Radio Sampler:
    1. Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
    2. Joy To The World
    3. Melodies of Christmas

    The tracklisting of the CD sampler sent to radio. These are the tracks Jive is encouraging radio to play.

  135. “Joy to the World” and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” are the top two songs on his album with the greatest number of downloads according to iTunes’ popularity graph. “Melodies of Christmas” is the only original song created for the album. So I think it is a good selection of samplers. I’m hoping for the best. Good luck, David!

    Jim had posted this on twitter earlier –

    Jambajim 3-part @DavidArchie interview headed your way!! We talk a LOT about his next pop album! You’ve never seen him this eloquent or excited. :)

    He wasn’t kidding! Great interview. Can we get Jim to interview David from now on? j/k It’s amazing the difference in David when 1) he’s comfortable with the interviewer, and 2) they ask him serious questions about music.

  137. ‘Why don’t you do a TV show that picks up where the movie leaves off and call it 2013?’ I think it will focus on a group of people who survived but not on the boats ‘ ¦ maybe they were on a piece of land that was spared or one that became an island

    So… Gilligan’s Island 2013, with Zac Efron as Gilligan?

  138. That clip of the Davids : Just. Wow. Beautiful. Thanks for reminding me not to forget to remember just why I got so hooked on this show for the first time evah that year. Love those guys! Props to the clipmaker for her awesome skills in combining all those moments and music into a really moving montage. I like the way the camera lingered on their faces.
