Allison Iraheta Was Free To Do ‘My Own Thing’ On Just Like You

The road to post-“American Idol” glory is paved with cautionary tales, perhaps none more cautionary than that of Diana DeGarmo, the runner-up during the show’s third season.

One of the youngest ‘” and most talented ‘” “Idol” contestants, she was inked to RCA Records in 2004 and released Blue Skies, a glossy pop album she had little creative control over (in a recent interview, she complained that RCA ignored her suggestions about songwriting partners almost entirely) and one that effectively ended her career. It debuted at #52 on the Billboard 200, then, without the benefit of a hit single, quickly disappeared. Nearly five years later, it has sold fewer than 200, 000 copies, and DeGarmo is starring in an off-Broadway production of “The Toxic Avenger.”

ABC shuts Adam Lambert out of ‘Kimmel’: Is the FCC to blame?

That naughty American Music Awards performance isn’t going to be behind Adam Lambert anytime soon.

Even after his well-received performance on “The Early Show” last week, ABC continues to feel uncomfortable around Lambert. His Dec. 17 “Jimmy Kimmel Live” appearance was canceled today–news Lambert himself delivered on his Twitter page an hour ago.

The performance on Kimmel’s live stage was scheduled before Lambert made his now infamous debut on the AMAs on Nov. 22. In one of his tweets about the matter, Lambert told his fans not to blame ABC but rather “It’s the FCC heat.”

It’s not clear whether ABC told Lambert to put the blame there or if the “American Idol” runner-up is making his own assumptions. But we do know the following: The FCC doesn’t monitor programming after 10 p.m. Don’t believe us? The following is an excerpt from its website:

More Idol Headlines After the JUMP…

Walters spotlights year’s Most Fascinating People

Barbara Walters thinks this year’s roster of fascinating people is a little edgier, more current and less obvious than usual.

Of course, the fact that she’s compiling a new list is no surprise. Airing Dec. 9 at 10 p.m. EST on ABC, “Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2009” is her 17th edition.

But the choices this time, she says, “are hopefully more adventurous, ” in contrast to last year’s, which (boasting the likes of Michael Phelps, Tom Cruise, Tina Fey, Barack Obama) seemed to come together naturally.

Here’s glam rocker Adam Lambert, speaking with Walters on the heels of his racy performance at ABC’s American Music Awards _ and getting dropped from an appearance on the same network’s “Good Morning America.”

“We said, ‘Should we have done Adam Lambert or should we have done Taylor Swift?’ And then he did this huge thing (on the awards show) and we said, ‘Ah! We got the fascinating one!'”

Do Adam Lambert And Howie Mandel Share A Stylist?

Last week, Adam Lambert sat down with MTV News’ Jim Cantiello for an extended conversation about a variety of topics, including the development of his new album For Your Entertainment, his controversial performance at the American Music Awards, the aftermath of “American Idol, ” his new music video and a host of other topics. (If you want to catch up with any of the excellent Lambert footage that came out of that interview, be sure to check out “Extended Play: Adam Lambert.”)

Adam Lambert Finds His ‘Strut’ On Debut Album

Adam Lambert is certainly a confident performer, so when the time came to write songs for his debut LP, For Your Entertainment, he wanted to capture that confidence on record. The “Idol” runner-up sat down with judge Kara DioGuardi, and the pair decided that the best way to describe Lambert’s swagger was with a single word: strut.

But as the two were writing the song, they realized that it meant so much more than that. “Like with Kara, for example, we wrote ‘Strut’ together with Greg Wells, and the idea of strut was actually her concept, ” Lambert told MTV News. “I told him I wanted to do a song that was real glam-rock.”

Adam Lambert Recalls One-Night Stands With Help From Muse

Adam Lambert worked with everyone from Rivers Cuomo to Pink to the Darkness frontman Justin Hawkins to “Idol” judge Kara DioGuardi on his new album, For Your Entertainment. But one song, “Soaked, ” written by Muse singer Matthew Bellamy, felt especially personal for the “Idol” runner-up.

“Soaked to the bone/ And sink like a stone/ Walk home alone/ It’s not the first time/It’s not the worst crime/ Your soul will be OK, ” Lambert sings in the track.

Susan Boyle, Top Seller, Shakes Up CD Trends

For most of Susan Boyle’s fans, buying her new album last week meant getting a shrink-wrapped CD, not a download.

Only 6 percent of the sales for ‘I Dreamed a Dream’  were digital downloads, far below the industry’s overall ratio of physical to digital sales. As recently as three years ago CDs ‘” which are more profitable for record labels than downloads are ‘” accounted for 94 percent of the market. But by the middle of this year that share had slipped to about 77 percent. The previous week’s No. 1 release, John Mayer’s ‘Battle Studies’  (Columbia), sold a notable 45 percent of its opening-week 286, 000 copies digitally.

David Archuleta bringing in the Christmas spirit

He wasn’t the David who took home the “American Idol” crown in 2008, but that hasn’t hurt Season 7 second-place finisher David Archuleta. Archuleta, who turns 19 this month, laughs frequently and charmingly, and speaks passionately about his desire to communicate his personality through music. One of his passions is Christmas music, which led to him to release a holiday album, “Christmas from the Heart.”

“Christmas music is one of my favorite types of music, ” he said. “Having your own arrangement of those songs and having an orchestra play on the album was really neat to do. Hopefully this will mean something to people this time of year.”

NY1 Theater Review: “Dreamgirls”

The 1981 hit musical “Dreamgirls” is back on the theater scene and recently opened at the legendary Apollo Theater in Harlem. NY1’s Roma Torre filed the following review.

“Dreamgirls” will forever have to compete with its original legendary self. That landmark 1981 production directed and choreographed by Michael Bennett set the bar so high, nothing short of reincarnation would satisfy its most ardent fans. But I’m happy to report that the revival, staged at the Apollo Theatre where it all begins, is plenty dreamy in its own right.

She had me the moment her titanic chops wrapped themselves around that first lyric of her first song. “She” of course is the mega talent playing Effie at the center of this electric production. And while it’s playing way off Broadway in Harlem, the show hits enough high notes to make it Broadway caliber.

‘Grease’ is slick, shiny and shallow

Has there ever been a long-running musical more superficial than “Grease?”

It reduces one of the most complex decades of American history, the 1950s, to a jumble of faux-nostalgic memories of sock hops and souped-up cars.

You’d look in vain for anti-Communist scares, civil rights, rebellion against conformity or the rise of real rock ‘n’ roll – the hard-edged kind, born of rhythm ‘n’ blues and practiced by everyone from Chuck Berry to Elvis Presley. The plot has just one mini-crisis, a suspected pregnancy solved with an “It was a false alarm” reference.

X Factor: Olly Murs ‘gutted’ at missing twin brother’s wedding

Despite a last-ditch appeal, the 25-year-old singer has been told he can’t attend brother Ben’s wedding this weekend to fiance Amy.

But the 3pm wedding, in Chemlsford, Essex on Saturday, clashes with the semi-final’s ‘vital’  dress rehearsal.

He had already been told he could not miss the rehearsals, but Murs made a last ditch appeal to the show’s producers to allow him to take a couple of hours off to attend.

‘So You Think You Can Dance’ recap: Viewers’ Choice

Whew, that was close. For a second there, I was afraid that there was going to be a huge upset, and that America had gotten it very very wrong.

Of course, this was the week where the judges relinquished their control to the masses and the voters took the wheel and decided who stayed and who didn’t in this competition. It’s always a crapshoot. How’s it going to go? Does everyone else like the same people I do? What’s going to happen now that some of our beloved couples have been split up? And midway through the program it dawned on me that we were veering in a horribly wrong direction and I had half a mind to stop this car right now! if the voters didn’t behave and get back on course.

‘So You Think You Can Dance’: Only going to get harder from here

It’s not going to get any easier from here on out, folks. If you thought Wednesday night’s elimination was difficult, just know that sooner rather than later one of your favorites is most likely to be cut from “So You Think You Can Dance.” The good news, if there is any, is that this season must be strong if there are so many dancers whom I can’t imagine not being in the competition.

Perhaps to temper the bad news, the show offered some wonderful performances, starting with the Tyce Diorio Broadway routine that kicked off the episode. Sure, it was a little hard to believe the crew as a tough “West Side Story”-style gang when Billy Joel’s “It’s Still Rock and Roll to Me” was playing, but the top 10 really seemed to have a fun time with it (especially Ashleigh and Ryan Di Lello, who enjoyed a major kiss in the middle of the dance). All in all it was leathery, campy, Adam Lambert-style fun.

  1. THE X Factor winner’s first single will be Miley Cyrus’ The Climb, according to reports.
    X Factor judge Simon Cowell is believed to have chosen The Climb ‘“ a hit single by Miley Cyrus ‘“ for the show’s winner to release this Christmas.

    Oh… my… well, I suppose it can’t be made worse than the original, can it? Maybe that’s a plus for the British public…

  2. Adam is supposed to be interviewed on 94.1 in San Diego right now. If someone is listening would you plese update us afterwards. I can’t download flash player on my Iphone and mylaptopis sick with a virus. It’s streaming live on radiotime.com. Thanks!

  3. Seriously? “the climb”???? urgh….

    … actually, come to think of it, a reprise of the song would be great… when an actual singer delivers… jmo

  4. So Adam didn’t get to be on GMA, but his infamous blue-black-flannel shirt did LOL I wonder if Howie is a fan…

  5. Yay for Kris appearing on SYTYCD….that’s a big audience!! I also liked how they described him in the press release. This is good exposure for him. I wonder if he will be on DWTS at some point as well. That’s another huge audience too.

  6. THE X Factor winner’s first single will be Miley Cyrus’ The Climb, according to reports.
    X Factor judge Simon Cowell is believed to have chosen The Climb ‘“ a hit single by Miley Cyrus ‘“ for the show’s winner to release this Christmas.

    For someone who seems to have a problem with karaoke, Simon sure loves giving covers to his pet projects. Leona got Kelly’s ‘A Moment Like This’ , Westlife got Daughtry’s ‘What About Now’ , IIRC somebody got ‘Hallelujah’  there too and now this?

  7. Thanks dv.
    Glee’s songs are great and fun on TV, but in studio they’re so awful. That MLWSWY is 100% pure bad karaoke.

  8. Adam has arrived at the San Diego station, Star 94.1. They are playing WWFM. I hope this is on YT later, or MJ can post it.

    ETA: I agree, leome. Part of the fun of Glee is seeing how the kids interpret the songs. Out of context, I think a lot of them are pretty cheesy.

  9. ‘ ¦ actually, come to think of it, a reprise of the song would be great’ ¦ when an actual singer delivers’ ¦ jmo

    Did you see the video where Kelly covered The Climb with Jill and Kate her backup singers? It sounded awesome and they made me realize the song’s not so bad after all.

  10. For someone who seems to have a problem with karaoke, Simon sure loves giving covers to his pet projects. Leona got Kelly’s ‘A Moment Like This’ , Westlife got Daughtry’s ‘What About Now’ , IIRC somebody got ‘Hallelujah’  there too and now this?

    Last year’s X Factor winner, Alexandra Burke got Hallelujah.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JPSLmlLiMQU

    So The Climb will be #1 song in UK for Christmas? Wow.

  11. For someone who seems to have a problem with karaoke, Simon sure loves giving covers to his pet projects. Leona got Kelly’s ‘A Moment Like This’ , Westlife got Daughtry’s ‘What About Now’ , IIRC somebody got ‘Hallelujah’  there too and now this?

    Simon likes money. Selling cheesy covers is a much less risky way for making a quick buck than investing in building real careers with original songs. And cheesy covers, especially those from across the pond, have proven to make him lots of money (see also SuBo’s CD). The whole line about not liking karaoke is part of his AI persona. I sometimes don’t even know if he *really* believes it except when it serves. His AI go-to critiques about singers being Broadway, karaoke, cruise ship, etc. are all part of the character he’s scripted for himself. In real life, I don’t think Simon cares when his projects are cheesy/karaoke/cruise ship as long as it makes him lots of money.

    Also, I like The Climb even though I despise Miley’s voice, so this isn’t such a bad idea. And yes, that cover by Kelly and her backup singers was awesome.

  12. Barbara Walter can SUCK it. The djays loved Adam, and he sounded so grateful. Didn’t apologize about AMAs, but took responsibility and, to his credit (or his handlers), did NOT bring up Jimmy Kimmel, but talked about upcoming appearances. And remember, he is in San Diego for CHARITY (he’s auctioning off his Kiss costume, I think). Wow, Sweden is streaming it. The Glamberts are listening, apparently. Emails coming in from everywhere. Adam imitated SuBo (hysterical) and one caller said that if her son was gay, she’d want to set them up. lol

    This is one classy dude.

  13. Did you see the video where Kelly covered The Climb with Jill and Kate her backup singers? It sounded awesome and they made me realize the song’s not so bad after all.

    windmills, you pretty much nailed it for me as well. The song’s kinda inspirational…it just needs a good voice.

  14. The djays loved Adam, and he sounded so grateful. Didn’t apologize about AMAs, but took responsibility and, to his credit (or his handlers), did NOT bring up Jimmy Kimmel, but talked about upcoming appearances. And remember, he is in San Diego for CHARITY (he’s auctioning off his Kiss costume, I think).

    Thanks to everyone for posting the link. That was a very good interview. That Susan Boyle imitation was hilarious. And, it never hurts for an AI alumnus to mention that he’s excited about watching the next season. Most importantly, you can’t really beat having the station preview like 5 of your songs LOL.

    I didn’t really get the charity event though. I’m confused about whether he’s donating the costume to the Hard Rock for one of their usual displays AT a charity event. Or, they’re auctioning off the costume for charity?

  15. Oh, now the djays are mentioning Adam’s two canceled appearances, but noting that Leno picked him up and he is looking into New Year’s Eve possibilities (is there anything on NBC?). They lurrrve him. WWFM really does sound great on the radio. God, Adam’s impression of SuBo singing Wild Horses must be played everywhere; hysterical! This is going everywhere. Oh, and the interviews and the pictures of Adam will be posted on Star 94.1s’s website shortly. Adam fans are still emailing the station.

    I agree, SparksATL. The Idols don’t just disappear. Take that, cynics.

    Kudos, GaGaGlambert!!!

  16. Mr. Lambert will live… if he doesn’t make it through his music, he may have a career as an interviewee… I’m impressed with the spontaneity of all his interviews…

  17. Adam imitated SuBo (hysterical) …The SuBo imitation was hilarious!

    It’s gonna be my cell’s new ringtone.

  18. Well, that would work (I would love to see him and Green Day, one of my favorite bands).

    Green Day Rocks! They’ve had their share of censoring problems themselves. They didn’t give in to Walmart either.
    After the AMAs Billy Joe Armstrong tweeted-“I guess I should have kissed a dude”. lol

  19. Well, Billy Joe Armstrong has had some very cool things to say about Adam in the past, maybe this could work.

  20. You know, sure there’s the sentiment of “Death to Kradam” in various parts, but screw it…let’s have one more round before Season Nine starts. Get Adam booked on Fox’s NYE special and give us one more dose of Kradison, for old times’ sake!

  21. Get Adam booked on Fox’s NYE special and give us one more dose of Kradison, for old times’ sake!

    Nah….the Ryan Seacrest Kradison stuff is too much to stomach. I want my New Year to come in on a good note. Bury 2009 look forward to 2010.

  22. UhOH, Barbara is going to talk about the Adam thing, on the View.

    Of course. The View is on ABC. What did she say?

  23. More from the sophie interview itself and additional off-air discussion will be posted shortly:

    I would prefer to see Adam on NBC or another station. I also agree: one more Kradison performance is enough for me, and that’s how it would be billed on Fox, I bet. I hope he gets another network or cable TV gig (does MTV have one? I think they do).

  24. You know, sure there’s the sentiment of ‘Death to Kradam’  in various parts, but screw it’ ¦let’s have one more round before Season Nine starts. Get Adam booked on Fox’s NYE special and give us one more dose of Kradison, for old times’ sake!

    Well someone is getting Kradison in February

  25. Of course. The View is on ABC. What did she say?

    Barbara is saying FCC fines are what is causing the cancellations. Everyone who know how FCC works are saying its pretty clear there won’t be any fines and that she knows that.

  26. As far as Adam knows, the Barbara Walters special will still include him, but now I’m not sure I want to watch it…

  27. Ok. I found this summary of the view discussion:

    “Whoopi brought up others (women) doing the kissing and oral sex simulation and says there’s a double standard. Joy agreed. Even Sherry, who was appalled last week with Adam, thinks the cancellations are are getitng out of hand. Barbara (with an assist from Whoopi) pimped Adam’s appearance in her 10 Most Fascinating People show next week, so apparently that’s happening. Barbara defended ABC saying it’s all the FCC and that hundreds of thousands dollars of fines are possibly at stake; she claims the faux bjob is at the issue. Elizabeth was dumbfounded at that because to her that wasn’t the most risque thing. So, all in all, not too bad IMO — with 3/5 sticking up for Adam. Barbara plugging him on her show (she does seem to like Adam) and explaining ABC’s role and Elizabeth lost in the sauce as usual.”

  28. Funny how I spent most of today in the Kris/Allison related threads, I think in part because I was too exhausted from Adam news yesterday – being an Adam fan is the most tiring, crazy thing in the world, I swear.

    Oh, wells – onto happier Adam news, which is that I FINALLY heard at least a few notes of WWFM on my local radio last night! I was soo excited! I just heard the final notes (argh) – but it was oh so sweet to hear that voice on the radio :-) Yea!

  29. Barbara is saying FCC fines are what is causing the cancellations. Everyone who know how FCC works are saying its pretty clear there won’t be any fines and that she knows that.

    Then how come Adam is still part of Barbara’s most fascinating list?

  30. As far as Adam knows, the Barbara Walters special will still include him, but now I’m not sure I want to watch it’ ¦

    Why not? You think they will edit it to make it negative towards Adam?

  31. I have general chart/spins question. The goal for CHR is to get in the Top40, which gets artists into the weekly Top40 count down, thus giving them more air play in new regions. What about HAC? Is there any special benefit like this for getting into the top 40 of the HAC chart?

  32. Here is the one for MTV.

    Mariah Carey To Headline Madison Square Garden On New Year’s Eve

    There are always plenty of parties in New York on New Year’s Eve, but despite the chaos in Times Square, the best shindig is usually at Madison Square Garden. In the past few years, the venue has hosted a high-profile music act to ring in the new year. The spot is typically reserved for jam bands (Phish have hosted legendary marathon shows in the building, while last year’s headliner was My Morning Jacket, who jammed their way into 2009), but this year’s show will focus on a true superstar: Mariah Carey.

    Carey announced that she would be headlining MSG on New Year’s Eve via her Twitter and on her Web site on Thursday night.

    The announcement doesn’t include any information about opening acts or special guests, though it promises that Mariah will perform hits, including her latest singles, “Obsessed” and “H.A.T.E.U.,” and other songs from Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel.

  33. Adam imitated SuBo (hysterical) ‘ ¦The SuBo imitation was hilarious!

    For realz? Oh, this I have to hear! LOL!

    I say, Gaga/Adam are so five minutes ago, I want my Subo/Adam concert now – that would be just PRICELESS :-)

  34. This article says Adam’s outfit will be donated to, and displayed at, the Hard Rock. Nothing about charity mentioned.

    Maybe the poster was talking about the news item about Sayesha Mercado that was linked above and not Adam:

  35. This article says Adam’s outfit will be donated to, and displayed at, the Hard Rock. Nothing about charity mentioned. (I scanned, did not see this link posted.)

    Yeah – that’s what I figured. But, the radio station mentioned a charity event in San Diego at which Adam will appear. So, I think people just got confused and added those two things together.

    Sooooo….. what exactly does Hasselback think is more risque than simulated oral? That kind of makes me giggle.

  36. So because of the FCC, he can’t do any shows on ABC at all? While an investigation is pending?

  37. Sooooo’ ¦.. what exactly does Hasselback think is more risque than simulated oral? That kind of makes me giggle.

    Her focus is more on the actual man on man kiss.

  38. So because of the FCC, he can’t do any shows on ABC at all? While an investigation is pending?

    No I dont think that is right.

  39. Adam imitated SuBo (hysterical)

    I hope it’s not mean or cruel in any way. I don’t know why I feel a bit defensive for her, she’s kind of homely and ordinary looking, but she does have a wonderful voice, and I hope Adam wasn’t laughing “at” her in a derogatory way … does anyone think it was like that? I haven’t seen it.

  40. So because of the FCC, he can’t do any shows on ABC at all? While an investigation is pending?

    Nope, Babs said he is still doing her show. The others? Not so much. I doubt they will let him do anything that is a performance on the network.

  41. “Sooooo’ ¦.. what exactly does Hasselback think is more risque than simulated oral? That kind of makes me giggle.

    Her focus is more on the actual man on man kiss.”

    I have to say that was one smoking hot kiss. Kind of leading man, Clark Gable, passionate, swooping kiss. No wonder she is fixated on it, I am.

  42. oceana- He just did a little bit of “Wild Horses” and it was pretty accurate. It was funny but cute and the DJ’s asked him to do it.

  43. Okay – that Orlando Sentinal article kind of cracks me up too. The quotes from the view this morning….

    Joy Behar joked, “It’s very hard to have a seven-second delay when someone’s having oral sex.”

    The studio audience laughed.

    Whoopi Goldgerg added, “Not when you train yourself. But that’s a whole other conversation.”

    OK, that was kind of a racy chat for 11 a.m. But if you want to see Lambert on ABC, Walters is the source.

    OMG! What about the chilrun?! There were probably preschoolers watching! And the View ladies were joking about oral! LOL

    I hope it’s not mean or cruel in any way.

    No – they were joking – and not mean at all to her. The DJ said something about maybe Adam could create his next news item by having a beef with SuBo. Everyone cracked up. Adam said something about how he could start it by imitating her. Then, he sang a bar of Wild Horses in a high lady voice. It was just silly – but not ridiculing her at all.

  44. I have to say that was one smoking hot kiss. Kind of leading man, Clark Gable, passionate, swooping kiss. No wonder she is fixated on it, I am.

    That kiss was HOT! Is it bad that I have all the screen caps from it? Nah…

  45. I hope it’s not mean or cruel in any way. I don’t know why I feel a bit defensive for her, she’s kind of homely and ordinary looking, but she does have a wonderful voice, and I hope Adam wasn’t laughing ‘at’  her in a derogatory way ‘ ¦ does anyone think it was like that? I haven’t seen it.

    Well… you just have to listen. I guess it was a bit mean maybe… but totally hilarious. The dj’s were saying forget a Gaga/Lambert smackdown, we wanna see SuBo/Lambert go against each other. And then they said, no that won’t be fair, she’ll kick your butt. Adam laughed and said well, I can do a Boyle imitiation. And he did. And he sang wild horses with a VERY swayy voice.

  46. I hope it’s not mean or cruel in any way. I don’t know why I feel a bit defensive for her, she’s kind of homely and ordinary looking, but she does have a wonderful voice, and I hope Adam wasn’t laughing ‘at’  her in a derogatory way

    And given that SuBo has a learning disability (due to complications during birth) and has had some recent mental health concerns, I think one has to be careful not to mock her if you don’t want to come off seeming mean. Especially when you debuted the same week and she handily beat you. You could also end up looking like a bitter loser.

    As Gokey showed during the season, imitations aren’t always a good idea.

    ETA: Okay, I see people say it was a lighthearted imitation, so that’s probably okay.

  47. Her focus is more on the actual man on man kiss.

    Oh, I see. Men kissing is obscene, but simulated bj’s are not. Got it Elizabeth.

  48. No ‘“ they were joking ‘“ and not mean at all to her. The DJ said something about maybe Adam could create his next news item by having a beef with SuBo. Everyone cracked up. Adam said something about how he could start it by imitating her. Then, he sang a bar of Wild Horses in a high lady voice. It was just silly ‘“ but not ridiculing her at all.

    Something tells me NO ONE is making fun of SuBo ever again – uh, platinum in two weeks? Yeah, she’s doing alright for herself ;-)

  49. “That kiss was HOT! Is it bad that I have all the screen caps from it? Nah’ ¦”

    Mary102- No, I have the slo-mo on repeat, is that bad? Nope.

  50. Especially when you debuted the same week and she handily beat you. You could also end up looking like a bitter loser.

    That was part of the joke – that she handed Adam an ass-whoopin’.

  51. Jeez- theSuBo immitation was totally lighthearted, no “bitterness” whatsoever. They were pretty much kidding that SuBo beat out everybody and it was just cute.

  52. God that Elisabeth Hasselback is a self-righteous prude – and although I don’t love her, I will say that I believe Sherri Sheppard did mention that she thought ABC had gone a bit far. So, good on her. She seems at least fair and consistent and without a stick up her ass.

    edit: the other thread is not the topic

  53. Mary102- No, I have the slo-mo on repeat, is that bad? Nope.

    Damn – I need that :-)

  54. Anybody remember Dan Karaty? Choreographer on SYTYCD? He’s now one of the celebrities on Bravo’s new fashion show “Launch My Line”! LOL! How bizarre! He’s vying for the opportunty to launch a clothing line. He describes his line as “urban runway.”

  55. I hope it’s not mean or cruel in any way. I don’t know why I feel a bit defensive for her, she’s kind of homely and ordinary looking, but she does have a wonderful voice, and I hope Adam wasn’t laughing ‘at’  her in a derogatory way

    Some people will always find a way to turn something into cruel or mean, but it wasn’t like that AT ALL. The DJ’s brought it up and Adam played along. The woman in going platinum in 2 weeks. No one is laughing at her anymore.

  56. I have ‘the kiss’ as the background on my phone. Hot! Although I’m so tempted to change it to one of the People Magazine pictures.

  57. Oh, BTW since someone posted it – that was great of Syesha to donate it! She killed it in Dreamgirls that I saw. Yay Syesha! :)

  58. Oh my gosh golly…SuBo is now a public figure that just racked in over 20 million bucks this last week. She isn’t above being mocked and imitated….put yourself out there and you get what you get. Why should she be treated with kid gloves when everyone else is beaten to a pulp with studded chains.

  59. Oh, sorry, ddin’t see the frowning face. Not from me, I thought it was good!

  60. I doubt they will let him do anything that is a performance on the network.

    Yeah, I think so too.

  61. Oh my gosh golly’ ¦SuBo is now a public figure that just racked in over 20 million bucks this last week. She isn’t above being mocked and imitated’ ¦.put yourself out there and you get what you get. Why should she be treated with kid gloves when everyone else is beaten to a pulp with studded chains.

    SuBo’s gimmick is that she’s been laughed at her entire life for being a frumpy cat lady. That’s the entire set-up for her introduction to her audition (people in the audience giggling at her and then, once she starts singing, being in awe of her “talent”). The people who are buying into her CD have bought into this story. Mock her at your own risk. You might very well be labeled one of those meanies that have overlooked her her entire life.

    I’m not saying that she can’t be mocked (and I have no use for her or her CD or Simon and his manipulation). I’m just saying that I’d be careful with that if I was a public figure.

  62. It was a funny impression of SuBo It was cute. You don’t think people make fun of Adam’s “screech” all the time?! It wasn’t hurtful in the least, and I am sure SuBo isn’t going to worry about it right now, but watch it go all over the net, w/ people dissing or defending him. *shaking head*

    Adam has gone out of his way to say that he does not blame ABC in any way for the cancellations but that is b/c of the FCC. Whether or not that’s true, that is what he has said, so he is not putting any ill will out there. I said that about Barbara Walters b/c they have appeared to have “banned” him from ABC and this is a high profile appearance. That’s all. It may be too late to edit him out (it probably is), but it wouldn’t shock me if they tried. Interesting that they are talking him about on The View, tho.

  63. On the Ellen show that premiered this morning, she said that when Adam was there, they asked him to record the song to help kick off the 12 Days of Christmas. Then she played it – it’s about a 40 second clip – He sounds good. She called it amazing.

    In addition, Bonnie Hunt twittered to Adam: @adamlambert, it’s me Bonnie Hunt, (4reals) love to have you on my show, u r my Elvis+Prince, we have best stage, sound, crew, cmon! BH

    She may want to talk to the ABC executives first…. lol

  64. And given that SuBo has a learning disability (due to complications during birth) and has had some recent mental health concerns, I think one has to be careful not to mock her if you don’t want to come off seeming mean.

    People have been slamming SuBo right and left right here on this site, calling her ugly and what not which I thought was horrible and I don’t remember anyone calling them out. Adam did not say anything mean at all, he just sang a few notes, no biggie.

  65. Did I miss something? I didn’t really see anyone making a big deal of his imitation of her, just cautioning that folks might want to be careful with it (other celebrities) so they don’t come off as being mean. Maybe I’m tired. I’m just not seeing a whole lot of a big deal, lol.

    And LOL, I guess David & Andy aren’t germaphobes? :) Though granted, germaphobes would’ve had a tough time on that bus the past 10 mos.

  66. Is there a link to see how many spins WWFM is getting this week?

    Also, 93.3 in Tampa has FYE and WWFM on their online request form if anyone wants to help request.

    http://www.933flz.com/pages/requests.html

    I don’t see the submit button…

    Also, you can request Adam on KISS 108’s website (use the zip code 02115) in Boston:

    http://www.kiss108.com/pages/request/requestform.html

    Adam is on the home page, and I’d like him to get some spins from the station or any Massachusetts station.

  67. On the Ellen show that premiered this morning, she said that when Adam was there, they asked him to record the song to help kick off the 12 Days of Christmas. Then she played it ‘“ it’s about a 40 second clip ‘“ He sounds good. She called it amazing.

    What song?

  68. You wonder why David Cook didn’t get a Grammy nom? Well, here’s a tweet “SonyMusicGlobal” just sent out:

    Watch @TheDavidCook perform his hit ‘Declaration’ on Regis & Kelly @ http://bit.ly/4UHxGE – how’d he do?

    How many days ago was David’s appearance on R&K now? SonyMusicGlobal is really on the ball aren’t they?

  69. I love Slezak. Lyndsey and Cantiello have already weighed in supporting Adam, as have a lot of others, including Aimee Mayo and Alisan Porter.

    I am now streaming sophie radio in San Diego, b/c they support Adam, and they aren’t a bad station. ;)

    It’s too bad they didn’t run the entire interview w/ Adam, where he talked about Chris Brown and not condemning ABC for the upcoming interview. This was before the Kimmel/potential RNNE cancellation(s).

    Yeah, I want to hear Adam’s song.

  70. Thanks Pam for that vid of David Cook antics at last Declaration tour stop. I am truly loving what I’ve seen of that show. It sums up what was so good about the Tour – the rocking music, the strong voice, the humor, the honesty, the emotion, the connection to the audience & between musicians.

    I wish I could stop angsting over his grammy snub, and the other show cancellation. I read online it was his own management that did it. That can’t be true? Why would they screw him like that? I’m still thinking the problem was between the radio station promoter and the venue itself.
    Bah. I’ll go watch David on drums to cheer myself up.

  71. Adam is doing a TON of radio this week! He’s going to be on Channel 93.3 tonight. Here’s the tweet: @FrankieVizzle
    http://twitpic.com/rz9eu – Adam Lambert will be hangin’ out on the air with me at 9p only on @channel933

  72. Did I miss something? I didn’t really see anyone making a big deal of his imitation of her, just cautioning that folks might want to be careful with it (other celebrities) so they don’t come off as being mean. Maybe I’m tired. I’m just not seeing a whole lot of a big deal, lol.

    I’m not seeing a whole lot of big deal either. Just a note of caution and no judgment made on Adam at all. Maybe I’m tired too.

    I thought this was interesting though this’ll probably get lost in the thread: somebody snuck a capture of what I guess is an early Carrie CMA rehearsal of Cowboy Casanova where she’s basically singing a cappella, getting the choreography down, and isn’t powering through it at all. I have no idea how they got it but I love the little sneak peek. Carrie sounds more sultry and she isn’t even trying.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kJy5bsg2Sjc

  73. I’ll go watch David on drums to cheer myself up.

    Do you have the video link of that one? That’s one thing I didn’t see yet, lol.

  74. Oh, I see. Men kissing is obscene, but simulated bj’s are not. Got it Elizabeth.

    I have watched The View on a regular basis and as most everyone knows Elisabeth is a very conservative, right wing Christian. However, she never says anything homophobic. And she didn’t do this with Adam either, however on a previous show (not today’s) she blasted “the AMA kiss” because she found it violent. She’s a little weird IMHO.

  75. Editing function gone, I haven’t seen The View yet today so don’t know what Elisabeth said, not that I’m waiting with baited breath :)

  76. People have been slamming SuBo right and left right here on this site, calling her ugly and what not which I thought was horrible and I don’t remember anyone calling them out.

    According to the rules of this board, we can’t “call [other posters] out”.

    Besides, none of us are celebrities and some people probably think some of us are mean. Who knows, at the SuBo fansites (are there any?) they could be burning some of us in effigy.

    Did I miss something? I didn’t really see anyone making a big deal of his imitation of her, just cautioning that folks might want to be careful with it (other celebrities) so they don’t come off as being mean.

    Exactly.

    ETA: Just to be clear: It sounds like what Adam did is fine.

  77. The whole AMA thing was disgusting (As an aside, what exactly was he doing to the crotch of the gal on the stripper pole?) and I don’t blame ABC for not giving Adam access to the network again. Quite to the contrary, I applaud it and hope they stick to their guns when he becomes an international superstar.

  78. Adam on the Q CBC Radio today. The podcast will be available tomorrow and it will be rebroadcasted tonight. Here’s a quote from the show: “Adam Lambert: Hopefully the press doesn’t hurt me, but if it does hopefully it’ll start a discussion that’s worth having.
    about 2 hours ago from web”

  79. a great, balanced review of david’s stellar performance last night in anaheim on the christmas tour… 2 more weeks till i get to see and hear him live in baltimore… iz excited!

    David Archuleta delights fans with Yuletide cheer
    December 3rd, 2009, 9:22 am ·
    posted by ROBERT KINSLER, FOR THE ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER

    A packed room full of ‘Arch Angels’  got an early Christmas gift thanks to the arrival of David Archuleta Wednesday night. The almost 18-year-old singer brought his youthful approach and appealing tenor to the Grove of Anaheim as part of a 17-city tour of the U.S. in support of his second album, Christmas from the Heart, presenting a 90-minute show divided into two distinct parts.

    For the first 40 minutes, Archuleta performed an eight-song set of hits and cover material before taking a short break to change into a dress jacket ‘“- and then re-emerge to sing eight songs from his holiday disc from October. It took only minutes of watching the concert to cement the idea that the Miami native, runner-up on the seventh season of American Idol, continues to be the seemingly shy and unassuming personality he revealed on the popular reality show. However, Archuleta -‘“ who turns 19 on Dec. 28 ‘“- also possesses an impressive voice. Here, he used that instrument in support of a mostly effective mix of upbeat dance numbers, R&B-tinged pop tunes and traditional Yuletide songs.

    In addition to the hits from his self-titled debut, such as ‘Crush,’  Archuleta performed several effective covers to give added weight to the show. Highlights included a take on Five for Fighting’s ‘The Riddle,’  for which Archuleta also played piano, and an acoustic take on Sting’s ‘Fields of Gold,’  dedicated to the late singer Eva Cassidy.

    The last half of the night proved to be the most artistically satisfying, with the singer performing a song he co-wrote (‘Melodies of Christmas’ ) as well as challenging classical material (notably ‘Ave Maria‘ ) and numbers for which he sang in French (‘Pat-a-Pan‘ ) and Spanish (‘Riu Riu Chiu‘ ).

    My biggest complaint, however, has to do with the arrangements, as there were few instrumental sections in any of the songs when Archuleta wouldn’t sing; the backing music alone could have shined or offered artful segues into the next verse or chorus.

    A sad and lasting impact of the American Idol formula is that in order to elicit cheers, a vocalist like Archuleta must hit the top of his range with huge notes; the impact of a strong but nuanced song or musical arrangement is mostly lost on undiscerning listeners, as evidenced both in episodes of the vocal talent show and the reaction of many in the crowd at the Grove.

    Yet Archuleta closed his show with a powerful and extended version of ‘O Holy Night’  that served as another reminder of the power of his vocal ability.

  80. It’s a new dawn, a new day. . .

    and I’m feeling much better.

    Sleep has settled me down and I can think logically. Really and truly Adam just needs to go about his business and say very little about ABC. I mean really SO WHAT? They are one TV network, in one country, in the world. Adam has a world to conquer. Screw ABC. It’s not like there aren’t other networks, cable channels, radio stations, live events, etc.

  81. I did watch The View today. Just to keep the record straight, Elisabeth said she didn’t find the oral sex simulation to be offensive and she didn’t think it had anything to do with kids because it was so late at night. What she found “not okay” was when he reached up between the woman’s legs and “acted like he unlocked somethng in there.” Sherri then went on to say she was offended by the oral sex simulation. Then, they started talking about Madonna doing the same thing.

  82. sweet – billboard has an add up promoting the 12/17 live telecast across their new network for david a’s show at the foxwoods resort… this is part of a special series of live feed broadcasts of shows from various artists – alicia keys, r. kelly, daughtry, david, imogen heap and brian setzer will also be spotlighted… this is gonna be great…

    http://live.billboard.com/Concert/View/200219

  83. Several photos of Kris from his sound check at Disney World today.

    And, uh-oh…

    @TheOmarShow Haha Kris Allen forgot the words to rockin around the christmas tree

    LOL — well, that’s what sound checks are for…not to mention that’s why they pre-tape this stuff!

    http://community.livejournal.com/ontd_ai/3193450.html

    (thread is currently unlocked)

  84. People have been slamming SuBo right and left right here on this site, calling her ugly and what not which I thought was horrible and I don’t remember anyone calling them out. Adam did not say anything mean at all, he just sang a few notes, no biggie.

    Again, to be clear, no one is saying that Adam was making fun of SuBo in any mean or nasty way, but the thought was about celebrities treading very carefully when imitating someone because that could be construed as mocking.

    Also the above quote is actually not on point at all because we are, for the most part, anonymous on this website. Whereas Adam, as with other celebrities, are not and the mainstream media or just even bloggers can pick up a remark that isn’t 100% unequivocably puppies and rainbows about another celebrity, spin it in an unfavorable way, and bingo, you have a wild story running around that Adam is making fun of poor, homely SuBo. That’s why you always hear celebrities following up any funny remark about someone or some phenomenon with a “I think they’re great,” or “I’m a huge fan.”

  85. Unlocking something up there? Was the dancer wearing a chastity belt? LOL

    Elisabeth is hilarious. She must have rerun the clip a few times as it appears she changed her mind as to what offended her. Last week it was the “violent kiss” that offended her.

  86. Quite to the contrary, I applaud it and hope they stick to their guns when he becomes an international superstar.

    Well, *if* that should happen to Adam, I would not hold my breath for ABC sticking to any guns in that instance!

    Right now, he doesn’t mean all that much money. But if he does later on….Uh, well, they will be caving. You can take that one to the bank, I think.

  87. It’s too bad they didn’t run the entire interview w/ Adam, where he talked about Chris Brown and not condemning ABC for the upcoming interview. This was before the Kimmel/potential RNNE cancellation(s).

    Yeah, I want to hear Adam’s song.

    Me too! Suebrody, your mission now is to find and post!!

  88. Also the above quote is actually not on point at all because we are, for the most part, anonymous on this website. Whereas Adam, as with other celebrities, are not and the mainstream media or just even bloggers can pick up a remark that isn’t 100% unequivocably puppies and rainbows about another celebrity, spin it in an unfavorable way, and bingo, you have a wild story running around that Adam is making fun of poor, homely SuBo.

    Or you can have a blogger take Carrie’s much quoted remark about how seriously she takes the idea that some people think of her as a role model and try to make it sound like she’s trashing Adam for the AMAs, never mind that Carrie made the comment over two months ago. It’s amazing what some people will do to try to stir things up.

  89. Sleep has settled me down and I can think logically. Really and truly Adam just needs to go about his business and say very little about ABC.

    I’m glad you are feeling better.. I’m still pissed. Not so much about Adam, but about this just being typical of many factions within our society setting their standards for policing my morality. *steps off soap box*

    On another note. Thanks for the Archie review link. I liked it.. nice balanced and they made a point.

  90. I applaud it and hope they stick to their guns when he becomes an international superstar.

    Well, you are certainly entitled to your opinion. But I wouldn’t hold your breath b/c if he does become an international superstar (and I will concede we don’t know yet) they’ll have him on. Count on it. Money talks and well . . .we all know the rest. :)

  91. Adam is doing a TON of radio this week! He’s going to be on Channel 93.3 tonight.

    Ahh, so this is where all the radio promo for him has been hiding…Phew! I was getting worried before :-)

    And I just listened to the SD interview – that was great! He is amazing in those interviews – really such a natural.

  92. Oh, and thanks for saying WHEN he becomes an international superstar! ROTFL! :)

  93. Sorry, but Adam was insulting to Susan Boyle in that San Diego interview. If he can’t handle being insulted by other celebs, ie. see Aiken, Clay, & Simmons, Gene; he certainly shouldn’t be doing it himself.

  94. Me too! Suebrody, your mission now is to find and post!!

    lol I’m not *that* good!!! But I’ll try. ;)

  95. It is so sad to see Adam’s eyes. The spark is missing. Just like so many people thought Adam looked sad on the Ellen show, I see the same look in the photos from the radio interview. I am really sad for what Adam is going through right now.

    On a different note, it has been confirmed that the discounted mp3 downloads on Amazon weren’t figured into Adam’s 198K totals. They need to be over 50% msrp, which at 3.99, was less than that. So, a few thousand lucky people got some inexpensive downloads, but unfortunately they did not help Adam’s calculated totals.

  96. Quite to the contrary, I applaud it and hope they stick to their guns when he becomes an international superstar.

    Well, *if* that should happen to Adam, I would not hold my breath for ABC sticking to any guns in that instance!

    Right now, he doesn’t mean all that much money. But if he does later on’ ¦.Uh, well, they will be caving. You can take that one to the bank, I think.

    And if he should become an international superstar, then I hope he would tell ABC “no” when they aks him to ocme on the sow. But I doubt he would do that. It would serve the network right but it would be hurting the individual shows.

  97. Thanks Pam for the link to David C drumming.

    That vid reminded me that David apparently hounded his parents for years for a drum kit and when they finally gifted him with an instrument, he was ‘pissed’ that they gave him a guitar. I think it all worked out for him in the end (to say the least), but that vid tells me that he LOVES them drums and is really a frustrated drummer at heart.

  98. Unlocking something up there? Was the dancer wearing a chastity belt? LOL

    Was that the trolley pull? Lol to that moment in the Slezak interview.

  99. Star of David: A Jewish perspective on Christmas From the Heart

    Why is a nice Jewish woman listening ‘“ in quite an obsessive way, no less ‘“ to a Christmas album, you may ask? To David Archuleta’s Christmas album? Good question. To answer that, let me tell my own Christmas Story.
    – – snip – –

    Are there other singers who have perfect pitch, incredible phrasing and an innate knowledge of drawing out the special nuances in music? Perhaps. Are there other singers who can emote and connect to you with their heart? Maybe. But it is the combination of these two things that puts David’s voice and talent on a whole other level. Then to top things off, just when you thought it couldn’t get any better then this, you have ‘David.’ 

    That non-judgmental, optimistic, child-like and yet profound, funny person, who gets more joy out of giving than receiving. This mixture of talent, emotion and character seeps through every note he sings. And that’s what I find contagious, that’s the killer combo ‘“ that’s what keeps me coming back for more.

    Snow Angelz

  100. Unlocking something up there? Was the dancer wearing a chastity belt? LOL

    She sort of was. There was a buckle in her crotch on a stretchy belt. Adam snapped it and did the trolley pull. He did not simulate finger penetration, as some think.

  101. sweet ‘“ billboard has an add up promoting the 12/17 live telecast across their new network for david a’s show at the foxwoods resort’ ¦ this is part of a special series of live feed broadcasts of shows from various artists ‘“ alicia keys, r. kelly, daughtry, david, imogen heap and brian setzer will also be spotlighted’ ¦ this is gonna be great’ ¦

    Really looking forward to this. Sounds awesome.

  102. Reading the all the threads made me think of a memorable gender-neutral song recorded by Divinyls in the early 1990s. It caused a minor controversy, but reached the top five of the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and peaked at number two on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zTneO6UgRuM

  103. Wait – what is Billboard’s new network? Is it a TV thing? An internet thing?

    (How am I so hopelessly out of the loop!)

  104. @FrankieVizzle: http://twitpic.com/rz9eu ‘“ Adam Lambert will be hangin’ out on the air with me at 9p only on @channel933

    Yeah, Adam on more radio, more spins!!!

    Well, for those of us concerned that Adam wasn’t doing enough press junkets, he sure is now!

    I do believe this Adam Tsunami will blow over soon.

    What a nice piece about David Archuleta! It’s funny that he’s at Foxwoods, tho, since he is too young to drink. ;)

  105. Slezak’s press releases are a hoot. That guy cracks me up.

    I loved his ‘Future press release headlines’ . Here’s a couple:

    * Adam Lambert to join ABC’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve telecast live from Times Square ‘” in stocks! Local school children will ‘teach that gay a lesson’  using eggs, jeers.
    * ABC scraps special SuperNanny episode featuring Adam Lambert. ‘There’s not a naughty step in the world big enough for that petulant young man!’  gasps exasperated Jo Frost.

  106. thanks ozarka for that piece… david’s artistry really crosses all boundaries of race, religion, age…. i call what he does artistry because he, to me, is an artist in the most basic sense of the word… he uses his voice to convey an impeccable range of textures and flavors and emotions that connect with such a diverse and varied range of listener.. he’s not a showman, not one to dazzle with killer dance moves or all that jazz, but he compels you to listen and pay attention to every note and nuance he brings to a song… he needs to do a live cd at some point in his career, for sure…

    and right-o keel... that billboard broadcast from foxwoods is going to be great… no need for a cellcast that night, as billboard will be shooting it with 5 cameras, and the viewer will have the option of picking or moving between the 5 cameras to view the show…

  107. You know David Cook picked an Excellent drummer for his band – his familiarity with the drums probably helped him in this regard. Kyle is the one member of the band I’ve been able to meet, albeit briefly. What a sweetie.

    Incarcerate – That photographer’s blog you posted about Cookie is wonderful! I hope lots of folks take a look at it.

  108. Adam Tsunami is good, just ABC is not in the Tsunami party anymore…..

    just can’t keep track of how many radio stations are in the Adam Tsunami

  109. Did anyone see that Bonnie Hunt tweeted Adam “it’s me Bonnie Hunt (4reals) love to have you on my show, ur my Elvisand Prince, we have best stage,sound,crew,c’mon”

  110. @LoveLifeDC GOOD NEWS: the FYE video is #10 on MTV countdown
    Found on Twitter.

    Is this correct?

  111. Family Guy: FCC The Musical-

    LOL I posted the youtube version a few days ago. Don’t get me wrong – I absolutely LOVE Family Guy but that is one seriously adult show that is for some reason still shown during primetime. But guess what people – I’m a responsible parent and my children are absolutely forbidden to watch it. As a matter of fact, I have a lock on their DVRs that won’t allow them to access shows that have a rating higher than PG.

  112. I checked youtube for SuBo’s Wild Horses, and Adam’s impersonation could use a little more practice, but still decent. During idol competition, other idols said he was good at impersonations. He does a spot on Gene Simmons.

  113. not mtv he is not yet on the top 100 I can see

    not in top 20 on vh1 either– peeps need to vote if they want him there

  114. MTV countdown or VH1 countdown, does anyone know?

    I don’t think he’s on either.

  115. Adam MV was just added to both stations, people would have to begin voting if they want him in either countdown

    It is WAY too soon for him to be there, given the MV was just added couple of days ago to both sites

  116. The song Adam recorded for Ellen is a song just for her. Its for her 12 days of christmas thing. It does like “It’s Ellen’s 12 days, it’s Ellen’s 12 day, it’s Ellen’s 12 days….Give-a-waaaaaaaayaaaaaa….. give it awayaaaaaa….give it away….. give it away yeah Ellen …. give it away… give it awaaaay.”

  117. The song Adam recorded for Ellen is a song just for her. Its for her 12 days of christmas thing. It does like ‘It’s Ellen’s 12 days, it’s Ellen’s 12 day, it’s Ellen’s 12 days’ ¦.Give-a-waaaaaaaayaaaaaa’ ¦.. give it awayaaaaaa’ ¦.give it away’ ¦.. give it away yeah Ellen ‘ ¦. give it away’ ¦ give it awaaaay.’ 

    OMG HA HA HA HA HA

    Okay, so now *I* am the loser. I was thinking Jimmy Fallon when it was Jimmy Kimmel! Jimmy Fallon is much funnier than Jimmy Kimmel (tho on an hour later). I hope Adam goes on Fallon (he did go on Letterman, after all, and is probably going on Leno). NBC is getting a lot of Adam time and vice versa.

  119. Did Adam dye his hair brown or is it just the light in that studio? Are the blue highlights never coming back? sigh…

  120. One of the many reasons I admire David Cook

    http://timboylesphotography.wordpress.com/2009/12/03/american-idol-david-cook-big-voice-huge-heart/

    Incarcerate ‘“ That photographer’s blog you posted about Cookie is wonderful! I hope lots of folks take a look at it.

    I sure have, :-D. What an absolute sweetheart, indeed, to keep up this friendship. I live in the Tampa Bay area, and I can’t help but think of Lindsey and David every time I see Charley on the news. Just wonderful.

  121. obviously someone is worried about going up against Adam’s song tonite-trying to mobilize forces on twitter:

    wowthegroup We need your help – Were going against ADAM LAMBERT TONIGHT @ 7:00pm on Z103! CALL IN – 416-798-1035 EMAIL – hammer@z1035.com 2 minutes ago from web

  122. I hope Adam goes on Fallon (he did go on Letterman, after all, and is probably going on Leno). NBC is getting a lot of Adam time and vice versa.

    Letterman and the Early Show are CBS.

  123. Did Adam dye his hair brown or is it just the light in that studio? Are the blue highlights never coming back? sigh’ ¦

    Yeah, I thought it looked much lighter too.

  124. I hope Adam goes on Fallon (he did go on Letterman, after all, and is probably going on Leno). NBC is getting a lot of Adam time and vice versa.

    Letterman and the Early Show are CBS.

    Well, he’s basically getting love from any station that is NOT ABC. None of the others have been scared off (thank god).

    ETA: Oh, and that Ellen song sounds beyond cool! Aww! Do we have vid of this yet?

  125. of course competitive networks will jump on chance to improve their ratings and jump on ABC like piranhas

  126. Rumor is he may be appearing with Elton John and Katy Perry on Carson Daly NYE show

  127. Rumor is he may be appearing with Elton John and Katy Perry on Carson Daly NYE show

    Really? That’s a prefect trio actually.

  128. Rumor is he may be appearing with Elton John and Katy Perry on Carson Daly NYE show

    I like that Rumor!

  129. Did Adam dye his hair brown or is it just the light in that studio? Are the blue highlights never coming back?

    sr4mjc & Mary102 – Also noticed that his hair looked lighter on the plaza of The Early Show, but thought it was seeing him in outdoor light. Think the blue and green highlights are for onstage – hard to maintain.

  130. IDF is mobilizing peeps to make sure it does happen and they are asking peeps to contact Carson Daly

  131. and David Cook tweets that he is working hard amidst the New York skyline, slow and steady.
    Looking forward to your new music, David!

  132. Rumor is he may be appearing with Elton John and Katy Perry on Carson Daly NYE show

    I really hope this is true…way better than what was originally planned. See good things can come out of bad situations.

  133. Whoever tweeted Adam’s name about needing help on the radio station tonight is going to find all the folks searching for all things Adam. Counter productive, lol

  134. wowthegroup We need your help ‘“ Were going against ADAM LAMBERT TONIGHT @ 7:00pm on Z103! CALL IN ‘“ 416-798-1035 EMAIL ‘“ hammer@z1035.com 2 minutes ago from web

    Anyone know what group this is??

  135. While that drum video is adorable. Of coarse not as adorable as David kissing Lindsay. I saw that and was like “Awwww”.

  136. Oh, I’d love to see Adam with Katy Perry – aww, they are precious together! I’m really liking that possibility!

    Oh, and I so so need Adam to sing “I kissed a girl” – duet with Katy, maybe?

  137. saga-ITA

    That Carson Daly gig with Elton and Katy, Perfect! I hope that works out.

  138. That Carson Daly gig with Elton and Katy, Perfect! I hope that works out.

    I’m not sure. I want Adam on the highest rated NYE show he can still get and I’m not sure Carson Daly would be the one. Don’t know who is though.

  139. Whoa! Lynda, tl;dr.

    Seriously, Yes, David can be incredibly adorable. I’ve had such a good time these past few months watching the vids of all these guys. And I’m really sorry now that I didn’t go to see David in concert when he came by this way. Although, I must admit the pics of Adam and Tommy are now at the top of my visual enjoyment list. ;) Just waiting for one one of these guys (maybe David? please, David?) to do something to top that.

  140. wowthegroup We need your help ‘“ Were going against ADAM LAMBERT TONIGHT @ 7:00pm on Z103! CALL IN ‘“ 416-798-1035 EMAIL ‘“ hammer@z1035.com 2 minutes ago from web

    I have never heard of them, but good for them for promoting themselves.

    Whoever tweeted Adam’s name about needing help on the radio station tonight is going to find all the folks searching for all things Adam. Counter productive, lol

    Well, that does increase the odds that they’ll lose, but who knows maybe some of Adam’s many twitterer followers will hear their music and like it.

    That Carson Daly gig with Elton and Katy, Perfect! I hope that works out.

    Is this an industry rumor, or a fan-created one?

  141. They have one on Z103 nightly (artist A vs artist B) and also one currently with Adam v some other artist on Virgin Radio Montreal (Adam won 6x, even beating GaGa and Rhianna), but w/ last night’s brouhaha, and yes, I said brouhaha, I don’t know the results. I want to know who this is so I can vote against him/her (j/k, but I do pick Adam).

    I have a lot to say is anyone is interested in hearing it…if not, I’ll just publish it. More money that way.

    Elton, Adam, and Katy? Perfection. Why not on a high profile gig against ABC? BRING.IT.ON.

    Oh, I never mentioned how happy I was the Nathan was voted off SYTYCD but wanted Mollee gone as well. At least Kathryn was safe, but I liked Noelle. I think the final two will be Elenore and Jakob; not sure about the other two, but I think Russell will be the boy.

  142. I think the final two will be Elenore and Jakob; not sure about the other two, but I think Russell will be the boy.

    I think Russell will nab one of those top 2 spots instead of Jakob. Jakob is technically brilliant – but Russell has a lot of TV appeal, and I think he’s got some fans.

  143. and David Cook twits that he’s in the studio today! Already? Part of the writing process? Who knows. still exciting.

  144. Too bad, ABC didn’t announce all the cancellations at one time. Would have made things so much simpler.

    And, it would have made more sense.

  145. Reminder:

    Leave the modding to me, please. I’ll decide if a post is too long or not, and where it belongs.

    Having said that, Lynda, I think I’m going to move your comments and your replies over to the other thread.

  146. Well I wasn’t going to say Lynda’s post was too long, but then uh, I’ve been known to be long winded, so kettle, pot, black if I was to going to there. But that being said, tl;dr for me, so yeah scroll. But work gets in the way, so I have an excuse.

    Olly has a twin brother as well? Crazy. Too bad he couldn’t have a twin-off with Jedward, that would have been lulzy. Oh and too bad he is missing his brother’s wedding…now they’ll actually have to hire someone to give a wedding singer performance.

  147. LOL. If David will just keep on… tweeting… he’ll help keep me entertained over his break…

    thedavidcook

    sitting in the studio this morning, and the radio was playing a @TheRealJordin RAWK BLOCK! 4 songs in a row! thought I’d share…

    Sorry if someone already posted that, I tried to read through all the posts, I really really did :) !!

  148. I’ll go watch David on drums to cheer myself up.

    Well that certainly cheered *me* up! Thank you Pam.

    Me too, lol. He looks like a little boy when he plays drums. Cutest thing ever.

  149. They no longer have the place to type in the wildcard entry for the VH! videos. Anyone know what’s up with that?

  150. Oh my gosh those pictures with Lindsey Rose. My heart! That photographer captured so much beauty. I can’t even how imagine how much the Charlie and his wife love David for how much joy he brings their little girl.

    Wait his newest tweet says he’s recording..?! Like not just writing but *recording* !! ?

  151. Wait his newest tweet says he’s recording..?! Like not just writing but *recording* !! ?

    He definitely said recording. What’s he recording?! He’s gotten pretty savvy with Twitter – he’s going to torture us all.break.long.

  152. He definitely said recording. What’s he recording?! He’s gotten pretty savvy with Twitter ‘“ he’s going to torture us all.break.long.

    David never rests does he? I’m worn out and I’m just a spectator.

    As someone out of the loop, how is Adam’s single doing?

  153. David Archuleta & Jordin Sparks: Toys for Tots Twosome

    David Archuleta and Jordin Sparks are teaming up with Planet Cazmo to benefit Toys for Tots for the holiday season.

    The duo will be performing alongside Allison Iraheta, Emily Osment, and Sean Kingston among others to benefit the charity.

    David shared, ‘I’m so excited to perform music from my Christmas album for Planet Cazmo’s virtual concert. It’s such a cool way to help Toys for Tots. Their work with kids during this time of year is awesome, and I’m excited to be a part of it.’ 

    Planet Cazmo will donate a week’s worth of virtual goods’ revenue to support Toys for Tots in conjunction with this event. Toys for Tots provides joy and a message of hope to less fortunate children through the gift of a new toy or book during the Christmas holiday season. For more information, check out ToysforTots.org.

    The concert will premiere on Friday, December 18 and Saturday, December 19th on PlanetCazmo.com.

    JustJaredJr.

  154. I love how so many of these Idol kids give back. There seems to be a whole bunch of them who are just big-hearted as can be. Love it, love it, love it.

  155. Here is Kim Caldwell’s album cover, plus a contest to win tickets to see her performing her new songs. The album is coming out in April and it’s called “Without Regret”-
    I think she has fantastic hair, but I really don’t like it in that cover.

    Those pic of David and Linsey are sooo cute.

  156. David recording??? I flipped my screen over to DCO and saw those tweets. Exciting! :) Those pics of Dave and that precious Lindsey Rose are just priceless! <3

    ETA: Archie’s blog was awesome. He’s so random. You gotta love him for that. lol

  157. Great video of the Script performing with David throwing candy and playing drums. Wish I could have been at that concert!
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UEoumT4dX_g

    I love the fact that The Script tweeted this (It’s a picure of one of the guys preparing for their riverdance invasion during David’s set). :

    http://twitpic.com/rzg4z – Look what the US has done to us!!!

    http://twitpic.com/rzg1f
    I saw the Script open for a different artist about a year ago and they were definitely more tame! LOL:

  158. http://www.nbc.com/new-years-eve/

    In the upper right corner of that page it says countdown to 2009. I looked at that link earlier today and was going to post a portion of it till I saw that.

    Green Day is one of the featured performers this year. No one else has been announced yet. It’s in a link I found and posted earlier today.

  159. That Riverdance invasion by the Script and GRO onto Cook’s stage was really one of the best pranks I’ve ever seen. The funniest thing about it?

    (1) The awesome sight of the two bands entering from both sides of the stage in their manly (and obviously rehearsed) Lord of the Dance goodness.
    (2) The Script dudes were pretty good at the Irish dance. The GRO guys? Not so much.

  160. So cute. The Script, David and the Anthemic (snerk) should tour all the time. They can prank each other and some creative fans can slash David & Danny O’Donoghue. Yum.

  161. Continuing with my tracking of David Cook’s album sales –

    WEEK 48
    56 – 443,991 – DAVID COOK – David Cook
    Total 1,255,658

    Good to have a number this week that isn’t an estimate to the nearest hundreds. David Cook seems to have a little boost this week with sales of ~2700.

  162. From Adam: @allisoniraheta can outsing any of the other teenagers in the recording industry right now. Like, sing circles around them. 31 minutes ago from Echofon

    Um, no. If he wants to defend Miss Allison, fine, but no need to bash all other teenagers in the recording industry. For instance, has the outspoken 2009 runner-up ever heard last year’s Idol runner-up sing?

  163. HappyDaisy

    I know he didn’t phrase it as such, but I read Adam’s tweet as saying that Allison can sing rings around the FEMALE teenagers — the Mileys, Demis and Selenas of the world. Which I totally agree with…

  164. Um, no. If he wants to defend Miss Allison, fine, but no need to bash all other teenagers in the recording industry. For instance, has the outspoken 2009 runner-up ever heard last year’s Idol runner-up sing?

    I don’t know; maybe there’s no need to bash all of the other teenagers, but given Allison I don’t believe he’s really in the wrong for doing so, at least amongst the major players I can think of. She’s just on a whole other level.

    In any event, it shouldn’t necessarily be taken so literally, and clearly he’s invested (as am I). So, on a personal twitter thread, I don’t see a problem at all.

  165. Yah Jordin tweeted Adam back and said “she sureee can”. Keep in mind Jordin is a teen for a few more weeks.

  166. Jordin’s still a teenager?

    ETA: No, I guess I wouldn’t consider her one, since she turns 20 in a couple of weeks. I don’t consider anyone who’s reached 18 a teenager anymore. Adam might not either.

  167. Yah Jordin tweeted Adam back and said ‘she sureee can’ . Keep in mind Jordin is a teen for a few more weeks.

    Now THAT was classy. Jordin’s music is not my cuppa, but she gets my respect.

  168. Jordin turns 20 December 22. Really close to DC’s (Dec 20). And if anyone cares the same day as NFT.

  169. Jordin turns 20 December 22. Really close to DC’s (Dec 20). And if anyone cares the same day as NFT.

    LOL – I just looked up how old Archie is because apparently someone on another thread is offended on his behalf. His birthday is also in December (the 28th). That’s amusing. Also – Archie is about to turn 19, so he’s not a teenager either.

  170. Wow there is alot of winter babies from AI. Maybe winter babies are just born more talented. I think it would be a bummer because it’s so close to Christmas.

  171. Where is the Riverdance video from the “last” David Cook concert? Peeps keep referring to it, but I have yet to see a link.

  172. Also ‘“ Archie is about to turn 19, so he’s not a teenager either.

    He may not be a teenager according to your own personal definition, but, according to my dictionary, Wiki, and everyone else, you are a teenager as long as your age ends in “teen”, in other words, ages 13-19.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teenager

    Adam needs a muzzle at this point. I didn’t see any gender reference in that tweet either. After mocking the other, more sympathetic media darling this morning, he just insulted every other performer out there aged 13-19. How many toes can he step and on how many bridges can he burn in the first month that his album is out? I bet 19 is about ready to cut him off from any technology and only allow taped, edited performances and interviews.

  173. will

    Please excuse this totally off-topic post MJ, but this is hilarious:

    http://ow.ly/IjEo

    Will I’ll help make it back on topic. At least now someone else beside Adam is the main news topic in the media. That was very funny!

  174. Well Adam is getting a reputation. You should have heard my conservative family talk about his AMA performance this Thanksgiving.

  175. seriously
    12/03/2009 at 9:32 pm

    Well Adam is getting a reputation. You should have heard my conservative family talk about his AMA performance this Thanksgiving.

    Mine too You should have heard my liberal family talk about the AMA performance on Thanksgiving. I am sure the conversations were nothing alike. :-) Just like the opinions of everyone on the issue.

  176. He may not be a teenager according to your own personal definition, but, according to my dictionary, Wiki, and everyone else, you are a teenager as long as your age ends in ‘teen’ , in other words, ages 13-19.

    Well okay then, I guess I have to change my opinion in the face of Wiki and “everyone else”. I just always assumed that people here in the US became adults when they reached the age of majority. At least, that’s what they told me when I registered to vote.

  177. He may not be a teenager according to your own personal definition, but, according to my dictionary, Wiki, and everyone else, you are a teenager as long as your age ends in ‘teen’ , in other words, ages 13-19.

    Woah, woah, what?

    No idea as to your dictionary.

    As to wikipedia… that’s shouldn’t be a cited source. Plus, I looked at the article, which doesn’t give it a lot of strength.

    And everyone else? You’ve got to be kidding.

    Look, for “everyone else”, there’s a variety. If I were to take in a shot in the dark, I’d say that most people would consider the teenage years to be those between childhood and the age of majority. Not some overly literal definition (yes, I realize 19 is numerically in the “teens”. But I don’t find it relevant to the social concept at stake). Which would make said people an adult, and “adult teenager” is thus considered a contradiction in terms.

  178. Well Adam is getting a reputation. You should have heard my conservative family talk about his AMA performance this Thanksgiving.

    Adam is getting a reputation in my head. You should have heard it. It said, “too much work.”

  179. Not some overly literal definition (yes, I realize 19 is numerically in the ‘teens’ . But I don’t find it relevant to the social concept at stake). Which would make said people an adult, and ‘adult teenager’  is thus considered a contradiction in terms.

    Ah, so I’m not crazy. But Mark, you better sshhhh before Wiki and everyone else hear us!

  180. YouTube video of Kris rocking out “Rocking Around the Christmas Tree” at the taping of the DisneyWorld parade has been posted in that thread.

  181. Uhh, yeah, “teenager” means 13-19. End of story. Whether you’re a legal adult (18-19) or a legal minor (13-17). It’s just a fact.

  182. Archie may have reached the “age of majority”, but he’s still (technically) a teenager. At any rate, I don’t see what’s so wrong about Adam’s tweet of support for Allison. It’s his opinion and he’s entitled to it.

  183. I don’t feel offended by Adam’s support for Allison. Technically, Jordin and Archie are both teenagers. Adam just returns a favor to Allison when she supported him for the AMA mass. They are just friends. I always say Archie can take down any vocalists not only teens but also twice and three times older singers (Even some music professionals say that too). Is anybody offended by that statement?

    Poor Allison. She is going to sell only 25-30K? She is a teen competing against Miley, Taylor, Demi and Selena etc.

  184. Lu, thank you so much for the Elliott clip. I’m assuming he’s not in Japan now so do you know when he did that duet with Bobby Caldwell?

    Wow, it’s really great.

    P.S. No one at my Thanksgiving mentioned Adam Lambert.

  185. Archie may have reached the ‘age of majority’ , but he’s still (technically) a teenager. At any rate, I don’t see what’s so wrong about Adam’s tweet of support for Allison. It’s his opinion and he’s entitled to it.

    Agreed and agreed. Don’t see the big deal. It’s what friends do. It’s not like he pulled a Kanye and interrupted Archie mid-tweet to say this.

  186. Uhh, yeah, ‘teenager’  means 13-19. End of story. Whether you’re a legal adult (18-19) or a legal minor (13-17). It’s just a fact.

    Is it really that important what I think a teenager is? I came by the opinion honestly. I’ve just never in my life continued to think someone who’s 19 is a teenager. And I don’t suppose I’ve ever had much cause to look it up in the dictionary. Technically correct or not, I still feel that way. I guess I’ve always thought of it in a more cultural definition.

    So, you think Archie’s a teenager. I think he’s an adult. Even if it’s a fact or the end of the story (which, by the way, I think you missed my old favorite “enough said”).

  187. I don’t feel offended by Adam’s support for Allison.

    People are offended by Adam’s support for Allison??? LOL Are you serious?

  188. Mine too You should have heard my liberal family talk about the AMA performance on Thanksgiving. I am sure the conversations were nothing alike. :-) Just like the opinions of everyone on the issue.

    hahahahah. so true. Adam is sooo welcomed in my house/family! My mom luvs him! He’s just a talented singer to her.

  189. S9 begins January 10th. I can hardly wait. It’ll be fun to have new people and new topics to talk about. S8 is turning into an endless loop of the some conversations over and over again. (At least it is to me)

    It’ll be some of the same conversations, just different names and faces attached to them.

  190. I know he didn’t phrase it as such, but I read Adam’s tweet as saying that Allison can sing rings around the FEMALE teenagers ‘” the Mileys, Demis and Selenas of the world. Which I totally agree with’ ¦

    That’s exactly what I thought of too. He was comparing HER to HER teen peers, which unless Archie is going to reverse Crying Game on us, he’s not HER peer. I think it was teen/girl peers that Adam was saying, i.e. Miley, Selene, Tyalor and uh yeah, she kicks all their asses vocally.

  191. Speaking of those two.

  192. That review of 2 of David Cook’s shows that Seriously posted was really great reading
    (http://www.hotzoneonline.com/?p=240)
    Said some marvelous things about David! Like “As for Cook he was exceptional giving every bit of vocal power seen on Idol and combining that with his inner hard rocker.”
    Unfortunately some fans were apparently acting rude and that got noted as well.

    Other crumbs – Apparently David will be on NYC radio station 102.7 on Monday morn. / His Come Back to Me vid is #12 & Light On # 22 on VH1 top 100 vids of 09 countdown. / Andy Skib from DC’s band has a gig lined up in Tulsa on the 26th

  193. Oh man, there aren’t enough words to express my love for that Riverdance vid. From the choreographed big entrace to the part where the two bands start to dance battle (at which point GRO breaks out into a do-si-do) to the bow at the end…heeeeee! I think maybe Dave was having PTPDSTMSD* flashbacks there for a second.

    It’s not like he pulled a Kanye and interrupted Archie mid-tweet to say this.

    I like you, Archie, and Ima let you finish tweeting from the dentist, but Allison is the best singing teen of all time. Of ALL TIME.
