The Lee DeWyze official website has Lee scheduled for the NFL Sunday Football game on Nov. 14, airing on FOX. There’s no further info on the site, but I’m guessing he’ll sing the National Anthem.  (ETA: Or, like David Cook a few years ago, making celebrity picks on the studio pre-game! Thanks tigervixxen…) Especially since the game is the Chicago Bears at home.

Gilles Marini: Jennifer Grey will win ‘Dancing’

Brothers & Sisters star Gilles Marini is so well-informed, he could teach a course on Dancing With the Stars. Admittedly, he does have a unique perspective, considering that he and pro partner Cheryl Burke came in second place during the hit competition’s eighth season. He stepped into the judge’s seat on Monday where he gave Brandy a 9 in a sea of 10s for her “little trip at the end, ” and he has no shortage of opinions when it comes to this season’s favorites and “under under underdogs.” He shared his thoughts with USA TODAY’s Arienne Thompson.

  1. What I don’t get is Simon hated NoBo…why would be have his group perform it??

  2. Does anyone understand what this Sony gig was that Adam was involved in?

  3. Wasn’t there a boys band that performed No Boundaries on England got talent? I remember Simon saying that a “friend” wrote that song. Maybee he liked the song for a boys band.
    FWIW, I’m even less looking forward to I Don’t Want To Miss a Thing, between AI and the X factor, it must be the tenth time a contestant sing that song.

  4. Sounds like an important appearance for Adam, hopefully lots of people heard him sing. On another topic: I’ve always liked Nobo, especially sung by Adam.

  5. And so it begins…….Adam representing Sony at Sound in Munich sounds great to me! And then the European GNT starts in Helsinki. I am so ready for this.

  6. Wasn’t there a boys band that performed No Boundaries on England got talent?

    You guys don’t read my items, do you ;)

  7. The national anthem at the Bears game would be great for Lee. But I’m thinking he would do something similar to what David Cook did which is appear on the in studio pre game program in a segment making celebrity picks for the week. Also, the pregame show is called “FOX NFL Sunday”

  8. I’m even less looking forward to I Don’t Want To Miss a Thing, between AI and the X factor, it must be the tenth time a contestant sing that song.

    Again with the recycled IDWTMAT? Geeze. Look on the bright side – they can’t do it on Idol anymore – Steven Tyler would have to recuse himself as a judge if someone does Aerosmith – Yeah, right.
    *exaggerated wink*

  9. For those starving for Allison news she is having a twitter party right now

    @AllisonIraheta: Alriighttt! Twit party! 5 min!! XD gigidy gooo

  10. lyndseyparker Getting ready to interview a certain Season 9 American Idol winner. I can hear him rehearsing “Sweet Serendipity” in the next room…

    Me too!!!!

    Can’t believe how hush-hush the Sony gig was today.

  12. Here’s the Sony gig – page translated to English…
    http://bit.ly/9tklWE

    Don’t recognize anyone else.

    I only recognize the name Joe Cocker, and I saw the Ting Tings on Graham Norton once, that’s it. The Article was very boring in German or in English ;)

  13. That’s a cute video of Danny with Stuart Brazell.

    This was funny on twitter, from the Adam fan who took her son to see Danny last night and was calling for the “glambulance” because she thought Danny was “hott” lol.

    lol I’m tellin ya I was so shocked at how good he was! Never was a fan, despise country! Wasn’t drunk either maybe fried butter?

    Fried butter sounds vile, though :)

  14. Danny is adorkable in that video. And Simon, he dances the best out of all of them in that little bit, IMO.

    lol I’m tellin ya I was so shocked at how good he was! Never was a fan, despise country! Wasn’t drunk either maybe fried butter?

    Sounds like she still has the Gokey Glow on the day after the concert :) although I see she had to change her Avi back off Danny to avoid public stoning by her fellow Glamberts, lol.

    Sounds like the PR is kicking in for Lee, its about time.

  15. Gossip, the ting tings, Joe Cocker and Madcon (didn’t they do Beggin on the tour last year?) are known.
    That’s cool about Adam.

  16. Anyone else watch Bones tonight? I think Twitch was on playing a street dancer. Am I seeing things?

    Does anyone understand what this Sony gig was that Adam was involved in?

    This is the third annual Song BMG Germany event for the trade. It is a very important invitation-only showcase of Sony artists for the Germany trade (retailers) and media. There were about 800 guests and Adam was the only North American performer. They feature the biggest Sony artists in Germany and promote them. Adam’s intro included a promo for IIHY (just released in Germany) and his new album (if I am translating an email I got properly. I cannot read German and use Bablefish.)

    The first event, 2008, featured P!nk when “So What” was #1 in Germany.

    ITA — I thought the same thing.

    (This is the best show on Network TV. Mad Men is cable. JMHO YMMV.)

  19. I have to post this because it’s lulzy.

    Steve Smith is a Wide Receiver on the New York Giants (a US football team for people who don’t know). He posted a video on his FB of a bunch of his teammates lifting weights and stuff. Their choice of workout music is pretty funny (and Idol related of course or else I wouldn’t have posted it here).

    Actually not true Gossip is from Olympia Washington ;)

    you can always ask GreenHippo to translate it she speaks German

  22. This Germany event sounds like an awesome opportunity for Adam – I love the support SONY is giving him. Ready for the European leg of GNT to begin. And wow, wish I could go to the Q102 Jingle Ball – great line up. Isn’s Adam confirmed for another Jingle Ball?

  23. Picture of Archie with Elizabeth Gore on the red carpet of the GirlUp kickoff event tonight (in conjunction with the United Nations Foundation).

    Word is that he’s performing there tonight as well.

  24. I’m trying to find where to access the radio show with Lee on the Phoenix Radio Bali site. On the site, it says the interview is on the 5th, tomorrow night. Can anyone confirm which night and how to find the chat session?

  25. ok, who is singing in the background of the football workout? is it Carrie?

  26. sr4mjc: ok, who is singing in the background of the football workout? is it Carrie?

    Yeah and I wouldn’t have posted it except the song they’re playing is Mama’s Song. I thought that was a hilariously strange choice for a football team’s workout playlist.

  27. Yeah and I wouldn’t have posted it except the song they’re playing is Mama’s Song. I thought that was a hilariously strange choice for a football team’s workout playlist.

    ok, thanks! that is a strange pick for working out. LOL

  28. Anyone else watch Bones tonight? I think Twitch was on playing a street dancer. Am I seeing things?

    Hah! I just started watching about 5 minutes ago (on my DVR) and told my husband that the credit for one of the guest stars is for Stephen (Twitch) Boss — which has to be Twitch from SYTYCD. And now I know I was right. Now I have to watch carefully so I don’t miss him!

    Adam is also co-headlining Y100 Jingle Ball in Miami with Katy Perry — 12/11/10.

  30. In all honesty, Kid Rock is a talented singer and has a 50-50 chance of making into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. But his personal life is messed up. This so-called fued between him and Steven reminds me of two little boys in the school yard yelling, “I am better than you, so there!”

    Twitch is moving up in the world. Good for him!

  31. Jessy McCartney in the lineup too for Q102 Jingle Ball? My kids are gonna freak. I better get tickets, even though he is just co hosting. I remember an interview where he said he wanted to write for Adam. Love his new song “Shake” ( he also wrote “Bleeding Love”).

    Very cool about the Germany gig! We should have known something was up when Monte went to Munich a day before everyone else – next time that happens I’m gonna guess he’s going early because he’s there accompanying Adam doing something.

    I just love that Adam is doing so well and growing overseas. TBH, though I’d love him to be even bigger in the US, I think I’m way happier that he’s doing well both in the US and overseas, than if he was, say, even bigger but just in the US. JMO.

    And I also need to get Q102 tickets! I’ve never seen Adam performing at one of the big radio shows, and I’m dying to go!
