  1. I’m loving the FOX interviews with Crystal. Very impressive.

    Happy Thanksgiving! :)

  2. Happy Thanksgiving! Most of all to you, mj! Thank you for all the hard work you put into this site. You enhance my enjoyment of a number of shows and stars I enjoy following. This site and you are definitely a couple of things on my list of things I’m thankful for! Hope you have a wonderful day.

  3. Apparently(i missed it) there was a good interview with Archie on Philippines’ Monster RX 93., not the usual questions. I’ll post up the audio from larissa when its available. She recorded it.

  4. Happy Thanksgiving MJ and everyone else who makes this site so much fun. Special thanks to Kristen all who post in the numbers threads! ( :) not that I like numbers or anything?!?!?) And thanks to everyone who runs the special concert threads.

    Adam made CNN HN Showbiz Tonight — on their Turkey Awards list for smoking pop on stage in Amsterdam — but in typical Adam style he comes out fine. (Of course, it helps that smoking pot is legal in Amsterdam.) And so a bit of Adam singing Purple Haze made CNN on one of their most watched shows — broadcast 4 times. Also the whole performance made Fox Nation (Fox News online).

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9QOBiXtUJZ4&feature=player_embedded

    He is #2 on this story — around 2:20.

    I am constantly amazed by Adam’s ability to get press — even when he has been out of the country for the past 2 months.

  5. Happy Thanksgiving to MJ, Kirsten and all the posters and lurkers here at MJ’s. May you all have a Happy Thanksgiving filled with Love, Happy Memories, and lots of stuffing. Happy Turkey Day to all the idols. I am grateful for all of you for entertaining me. Like MJ I love this cheesy show. Best to all :-)

    Great Story on Adam thanks Q3…and a special Happy Thanksgiving to you Q3. I am thankful for your informative posts.

  6. So even though Adam was awarded a “turkey” award, the commentators thought that there was nothing wrong with what he did and he didn’t deserve the award? LOL! The video has hardly “gone viral” though.

  7. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

    Archie’s appearance on “The Wendy Williams Show” will be rebroadcast today on FOX. His guest starring moment on Disney Channel’s “Hannah Montana” will also be aired again today. Check your local listings for show times.

  8. Adam’s timing sucks for this “controversy” with the Holiday and all. Good thing he has a few shows left to get the media’s attention by his behavior. He is going to be working on his next album soon and hopefully we get news about that instead of his antics.

    Happy Turkey Day everyone!!

  9. Happy Thanksgiving MJ, and to all fellow American Idol geeks here!

    Hope you enjoy with family and/or friends

  10. heres a send space file of davids interview in the philippines:

    http://www.sendspace.com/file/stx4li

    -talks about new idol judges
    -about coming back to manila and first impressions(mentions cook)
    -what was the hardest thing that happened to his life after he became famous. most difficult being away from family.
    -biggest mistake he made, doesnt really know. He’s always making mistakes. lol
    -what does he think about famous girlfriends, bieber wants one. Kinda rambles about fame/hype etc. sings a bit of somebody to love. Always good to be loved for yourself and the right way.
    -Who would he want to do a showdown with idol finalists. Doesnt like showdowns. Glad to be with cook.
    -Has he ever been a victim of bullying? yes at some point. a very loner kinda person.
    -had he won idol how different does he think things would be? he thinks even if things worked differently he still doesnt think he would have won. maybe gone off sooner.
    -would he do a song or something with his career outside of his comfort zone? He already is sort of already. this album was hard to do to stick to what he wanted to do instead of doing what everyone tells him. he’s usually a follower. he had to fight for more control on the album. learned a lot. Next album he wants to try some more serious stuff.

  11. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

    Adam makes me laugh. I didn’t see any foreign press stories on this so I don’t know how it is going viral. The Amsterdam press probably wouldn’t even blink an eye. I always wondered how these stories find there way back in the US.

  12. Does anyone know much about a new NBC show the “Sing-Off” starting on Dec. 6th? Looks like a cross between AI and Glee. Kinda smart if you ask me.

    It’s a good show. I watched it last year. It didn’t do great in the ratings which is a shame. A capella groups and Ben Folds judging.

  14. Siohban sounded great in the Philly parade and looked very cute. SHe sang Merry Christmas Baby.

  15. I watched “Sing-Off” last time – really liked it :)

    And Happy Thanksgiving!!

  16. Thanks for sharing the CNN story on Adam, Q3. What a crack up. Funny how they put Adam on their Turkey list, but then conclude that he doesn’t really deserve it. LOL I see no evidence that the video itself has gone viral, but I’m not surprised that the US media picked up the story. I’m kinda surprised it took them this long.

    Sing Off is a lot of fun to watch. Lot of very good acapella singing. I recommend it for those of you who like AI and Glee.

    Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Americans here at MJs! Thanks everyone for making it so much fun here, and MJ, special thanks to you for giving us this fun sandbox to play in. :-)

  17. Perez Hilton posted the Adam video on his site 3 or 4 days ago, then other outlets picked it up. Perez seems to look for Adam videos to post, he also posted his Metallica performance. I think he keeps up with AI because he posts about others too.

  18. ‘Glee’ cast confirmed for ‘X Factor’

    The cast of Glee will perform on the X Factor semi-final, it has been confirmed.

    The performance on the December 5 results show will be the cast’s first on a TV stage outside of the US.

    Confirmed to appear are: Lea Michele (Rachel), Cory Monteith (Finn), Amber Riley (Mercedes), Chris Colfer (Kurt), Kevin McHale (Artie), Mark Salling (Puck), Dianna Agron (Quinn), Heather Morris (Brittany), Naya Rivera (Santana), Jenna Ushkowitz (Tina), Harry Shum Jnr (Mike) and Chord Overstreet (Sam).

  19. Love Crystals interviews. Its amazing how she hasn’t changed the answers in the interviews and she still holds to that same core principles and values that she portrayed at the beginning of all this.

    Oh no Adam smoked a joint?? What next? Is he gonna swear on stage? No wait he already does that LOL dude that is sooooooo not wild. Comm’on now you have a kiss a guy routine, do all those sexual innuendos and antics and the next groundbreaking move is smoke a joint?! WTF I dont care if its Amsterdam or the states, prolly everyone in that crowd was high already lol. -1000 pts Adam. Think big man, think Marilyn Manson wild ;-)

  20. Anoop is giving away his album today for Thanksgiving.

    Are you kidding me? If he goes Marilyn Manson wild all hell will break loose, don’t forget the children. Besides Idol world would have a meltdown.

    Are there children at his concerts? And dont the children mature sooner now than before. I am sure if all the libido antics are appropriate for these children then it wouldn’t be a problem taking it to the next level ;-) Afterall hes known for his wild antics and getting away with it should be easy for him and his crew. Take a chance you know, no need to go to the extreme but spice it up little bit, thats what I am saying, play to the strength of your shows. WIth the meltdown well it would have already been done with it after the AMA performance but it didn’t so no worries there.

With regard to the idol meltdown isnt that the whole point really. To distance yourself from the poppy show and show you can be an individual in the industry.

    IA, I’m right there with you. He needs to go back to his pre-idol roots and go for it. :) I am glad to hear his label encourages him to take risks, so we will see. Maybe tour #2.

  24. In honor of Thanksgiving Lyndsey has posted some Turkeys of music video’s…haha one of them is SuBo’s Perfect Day…lol

    lyndseyparker Happy Tofurkey Day everyone! http://yhoo.it/ihJaDH

    Thx Cindy
    Well I listened to it and have to say the only song that stuck out for me was My Name. All the other ones didn’t catch my attention at all. I never would have bought his album. But I may check out his second album if he gets one.

  26. Happy Thanksgiving everybody!

    My family’s 3000 miles away, so I’m sitting here with my turkey & stuffing watching the video of Kris’ new song again :).

    Hope y’all are enjoying the day with your family and friends, wherever you are!

  27. No turkey day here where I live (don’t like turkey anyway)but have a happy one anyway! Oh, must go and listen to Kris’s new song again will get me in a happy mood before dragging myself off to work.

    Happy Turkey Day everyone!!

    Even in the US and on Cable News this is a minor story — just a bit of fun for Thanksgiving.

    The three biggest Adam stories for November were about music….

    1. Adam to release “Acoustic Live” EP.

    2. Pink covers Adam’s hit single WWFM — who do you prefer.

    3. Adam covers Metallica “Enter Sandman” — and that one is viral — video on many Metal sites that usually avoid Idol fare.

    But the Amsterdam concert video has not really gone viral or made much press. Right now it is November news story #8 (Based on online, print and TV entertainment news reports, excluding Examiner and Associate Content from count — even though Google calls the stuff news.)

    Also, Sleepwalker is #49 on Canadian HAC. :)

    ETA: Adam’s performance of Purple is actually spreading rapidly — after being ignored for a few days. 36 videos of the performance on YouTube — and at least 50 on other video sites — I stopped counting at 50. It is all over Asia-Pacific, Europe, Russia. So looks like it may pass the spread of “Enter Sandman”. But getting mostly positive comments — except on FoxNation.com but negative Adam comment there is just the normal course of that site.

  29. Carrie performed 2 songs as part of Macy’s T’day parade today — but recorded in front of an audience so really just for TV. Both songs were good.

    Also Michael Grimm was on a float and performed — he was great. Looking forward to his album.

  30. This tweet probably comes under the category of TMI :D

    One of the hazards of having to eat two Thanksgiving dinners (one w/ parents, one w/ in-laws), I guess?

    #Ate. Pooped. Round 2 here we come!
    21 minutes ago

  31. thanks for the link to the free download of anoop’s album. really enjoyed it!

  32. So… Adam shocks by smoking pot onstage and Kris tweets about bodily functions… Life as we know it continues… I’m just glad Kris gave us “Leave You Alone” as his end-of-tour gift. Gorgeous. #ImissSeason8

  33. Adam was caught shopping in Milan (Capital city of shopping)

    @adamlambert
    “whoever said money can’t buy happiness simply didn’t know where to go shopping” -Bo Derek

    Of course there’s pictures http://twitpic.com/3a1hxm

    Lol at one of his stalkers. http://twitpic.com/3a1o1u

    @adamlambert Here is our apologize for stalking you about one hour ago in Monte Napoleone…

  34. The Sing-Off: watched last year and it was really fun.
    Anoop: Downloaded the CD and it not bad. The song called Single was my fave.

  35. Ooooh that is one cute Italian guy stalking Adam, LOL. I think Adam should insist on an apology in person!

    Mercy, he’s a gorgeous stalker.

  37. Happy Thanksgiving to MJ, the blog hostess with the mostest, and to all the loyal Mj’ers old and new. It’s funny you guys were better than the show this year, that’s why I keep coming back, year, after year, after year.

    I adore Crystal Bowersox love her interviews, can’t wait for her debut.

    Adam in Milan, I bet he had a fine time shopping. Retail therapy in a fashion Mecca!

  38. Looks like they used a lot of Kris’ performance of AWM over Extra!’s end credits, which is cool

  39. As I said on the other thread, I thought Kris was referring to being pooped (tired), not having pooped. But that’s just me.

    I just caught the tail end of Extra but Kris sounded good on my TV.

  40. Does anyone know much about a new NBC show the “Sing-Off” starting on Dec. 6th? Looks like a cross between AI and Glee. Kinda smart if you ask me.

    I saw it last year and like it.

    Ross, I took ‘pooped’ as tired too. Probably because that’s what I say.

    I also only caught the end of Extra, but managed to see and hear Kris and Cale singing. Darn company!

    As I said on the other thread, I thought Kris was referring to being pooped (tired), not having pooped. But that’s just me.

    Well with how often he tweets about peeing…its hard to make a call on that one lol ;)

  43. Well with how often he tweets about peeing…its hard to make a call on that one lol

    I wouldn’t say he tweets about peeing often. I can’t even remember, but, what? Maybe two times.

  44. Well I do not know what Kris meant when he tweeted “pooped” and when I read it I just thought he meant he was tired and just unintentionally used a poor word choice for Twitter.

    But reading the comments in this thread, I recalled several tweets by Kris about bodily functions, and wanted to check to see if my memory was off. A fast Google search gave me 18 different references by Kris to peeing from interviews and Kris Tweets….most were not on Twitter…..here are a few examples:

    The urinal photo tweet: http://mjsbigblog.com/kris-allen-tmi-in-witchita.htm

    @krisallen: Rock-n-roll baby! (warning: this is a tad inappropriate) http://twitpic.com/19j1to

    There are a few interviews where he discussed the topic, here is one example: Kris Allen Interview: Peeing with Randy and Simon!
    http://mjsbigblog.com/kris-allen-interview-peeing-with-randy-and-simon.htm

    And of course, there is the WKRZ interview where Kris Allen mentions he could have pee-ed himself on stage and his mom would have still loved the performance. http://www2.wkrz.com/listen/kris-allen-stage

    ETA: But Kris tweets more about food and music, and also a lot of “funny” tweets that seem to be misunderstood — for example: “What if @justinbeiber punched you? What would you do? 8:37 AM Dec 2nd, 2009 via Echofon” which many Bieber fans thought was an insults because he misspelled his name and talked about punching. (Kris Twitted a correction 10 minutes later but the first one was already in circulation with RTs.)

  45. I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving Day celebration! Lots of Idols out there bringing enjoyment to all.

    Thank you, MJ for all you do!

  46. LOL! No I am pretty sure Kris was jokingly referring to a bodily function…Ate. Pooped. (made room/cycle complete) Ready for round 2. I’ve heard people IRL refer to it like this. I thought it was hilarious, he does have a great sense of humor :)

  47. Kris really has the patience of a saint. It’s bad enough that the first audience question at The Grove (as seen on a fan recording posted on YouTube a few days ago) was about Adam Lambert, but it actually made it into the TV story!

    That should be one of the things they warn AI contestants about: “If you win this show, you must be prepared for: a) getting no sleep as you record an album and tour at the same time, b) being sneered at by has-been musicians who think you are a no-talent mushroom, c) being asked the same hackneyed questions by reporters and the public until Doomsday….”
