Idol Headlines for 12/12/09

If Adam Lambert Were A Lesbian, Would He Already Have His Own TV Show?

Rosie O’Donnell, Suze Orman, Ellen DeGeneres, Wanda Sykes, Rachel Maddow, Portia De Rossi, now Meredith Baxter Birney? Is this reverse discrimination? What do you do if you’re a gay male, and want to work on the air…. on TV? There are gay men on TV, but in the talk show/broadcast journalism world, it seems the lesbians may outnumber the gay men?

Liberace, Rock Hudson …wait they are both dead! Well, there is always Perez Hilton and that guy who won “Star Search” years ago.

Isn’t is odd that TV programming executives, and human resources people from broadcast and cable networks are willing to accept these lesbian woman brave enough to “out” themselves, on the air… yet, if there was a man, who anchored a cable TV show, he may be afraid to say he was gay?

KRIS ALLEN LOVIN’ THE RIDE POST-‘ AMERICAN IDOL’ 

American Idol season eight winner, Kris Allen has big plans for the holiday season.

He took center stage at Wednesday’s results show of So You Think You Can Dance, but that’s only one stop he’s making.

Allen will headline Billboard’s New Year’s Eve Live! special’ ¦on New Year’s Eve. Joining him? AI fellow Top 10-er, Allison Iraheta along with reggae-fusion singer and Rapper, Sean Kingston.

Allen’s also involved in Ryan Seacrest’s Ryan, Rock My Town contest, where the city with the most votes gets a free concert featuring Allen, AI runner up, Adam Lambert and Iraheta. There is only a week and a few hours left to vote for your city and Allen tells HollywoodOutbreak.com that New York is in the lead right now.

Kris Allen, we figured out what your second single should be

What will the second single off “American Idol” Kris Allen’s debut CD be?

When Zap2it spoke with Allen earlier this week, he said he hasn’t yet decided, but he’s been thinking a lot about it. He also says that he’s accepting advice, so we asked readers to weigh in.

The verdict?

Though neck-and-neck with “Before We Come Undone, ” “Alright With Me” currently has a slight lead.

CONFESSIONS of a TV JUNKIE: Kris Allen Proves He Doesn’t Need Sideshow Antics

After Adam Lambert’s recent AMA performance, I wrote a piece running down my thoughts on his misguided antics, his blatant use of his platform to promote and ‘glamorize’ (pun intended) his lifestyle and the way he betrayed American Idol and his fans from the show.

Needless to say, a lot of users had opinions on the topic. Most, it seemed, disagreed with my perspective.

So be it.

I thought it appropriate, though, to point out the stark contrast between Lambert, accompanied by his 3-ring shock-circus and the understated music-is-the-thing performance by Kris Allen on So You Think You Can Dance on this week’s results show.

Tuned In: Allison Iraheta, Susan Boyle and Andy Caldwell

Season 8 of “American Idol” will be remembered for Adam Lambert and his shocking loss in the finals to Kris Allen.

Allison Iraheta? She was a superfluous contestant, the teen rocker destined to lose eventually (and lucky to have made the final four).

Funny thing, Iraheta’s new debut, “Just Like You, ” is more genuine than Lambert’s recent “For Your Entertainment” and more adventurous than Allen’s recent “Kris Allen.”

“Just Like You” isn’t superior overall to those other two releases, but it establishes the 17-year-old California native ahead of the general “Idol” pack of wannabes, a worthy successor to Pink and Joss Stone.

Michael Sarver uses Idol ‘window’ to launch single

Michael Sarver knew he had to hustle.

The former oil-rig roughneck from Jasper finished 10th earlier this year on American Idol, good enough for a spot on the summer tour but not exactly a breeding ground for long-term careers. (Curly-haired season-sixer Chris Sligh is the only name that still rings a bit of a bell.)

“My first thought was, ‘Man, I’m going to have to work really hard for this one, ‘” Sarver says. “The window between now and the beginning of the next American Idol season (is small), and if you don’t allow yourself to jump out there as an artist, then you become old contestants. Before that happens, you need to establish yourself as a solo artist. It makes it a lot easier.”

Sarver got a big leg up this week with the release of You Are. He wrote the feel-good country ballad, and it’s a preview of his forthcoming debut album, set for a spring 2010 release via Dream Records/Universal. The song was issued simultaneously Tuesday with uptempo B-side Cinderella Girl.

Carrie Underwood: I’m nobody’s fool

CARRIE Underwood is no dumb blonde. Shooting to fame after winning American Idol four years ago, she has cemented herself as one of the world’s top crossover country music stars.

But she’s had to overcome the negative stereotypes that come with not only her chosen musical genre, but also the colour of her hair.

“People automatically think I’m dumb, and when I do a photo shoot with some fashion-forward magazine or something, they want to stick me on hay bales, wearing plaid and with pig tails, or riding a horse, ” Underwood tells Insider from her Nashville home.

Review: Kelly Clarkson rocked the Civic Center

Kelly Clarkson’s All I Ever Wanted Tour made a stop in Columbus last night and she put on a pretty rockin’ show.

I was surprised how empty the Civic Center seemed when the first opening act Parachute started playing, and still when Eric Hutchinson took the stage. But honestly, I could have showed up after both acts played and not felt like I missed anything.

Not that either performance was bad, per se, just not my cup of tea. All the tweens and teen girls seemed to like them though.

Around 9 p.m. Kelly finally took the stage, and the venue had filled up a bit since then, but the upper level still seemed bizarrely empty.

‘American Idol’: When the Silversun Pickups met Clay Aiken

You don’t often hear Clay Aiken and Silversun Pickups mentioned in the same breath, unless you’re answering a question about musical artists who couldn’t possibly much more different.

But the former “American Idol” runner-up and the newly minted Grammy nominees share a connection. Sort of.

Before Silversun Pickups broke through with their 2006 album “Carnavas, ” lead singer and guitarist Brian Aubert and bassist Nikki Monninger worked on an Aiken music video, helping organize the extras on the shoot.

Theater Review: Ensemble cast makes “Grease” memorable at the Overture

While American Idol winner Taylor Hicks looms large in the advertising for Grease his appearances are limited to the dream sequence number ‘Beauty School Dropout’  and a post-curtain call performance of one the blues-rock songs for which he is famous. Hicks’ crooning seems out of place in this performance and was largely underwhelming, but he doesn’t harm the outstanding performances of the rest of the cast, and he would be an added treat for American Idol fans.

I recommend Grease to fans of the movie, fans of musicals in general, and anyone aching for a bit of 1950s nostalgia.

Country Crossing concert moved to Dothan Civic Center

All the last-minute preparations at Celebrity Station Amphitheater at Country Crossing Friday, for the inaugural concert at the development, ended up for naught. Due to the threat of inclement weather, the Kellie Pickler concert has been moved to the Dothan Civic Center. The show is sold out.

Preparation work in the theater was ongoing all week, as concrete sidewalks were poured and sod was being laid throughout the day Friday for Saturday night’s concert.

Show times have been moved up to 6 p.m., with Pickler expected to take the stage somewhere around 8:30 p.m.

Lythgoe Claims ‘SYTYCD’ Won’t Air Twice Yearly

Could Fox’s “So You Think You Can Dance” be returning to a once-a-year format?

That’s the word from the show’s ever-chatty executive producer, Nigel Lythgoe. According to TheWrap’s man about town on the party scene, Mikey Glazer, during the audience warmup for Wednesday night’s live results show, Lythgoe told audience members a twice-yearly, back-to-back format was simply too much for him.

Against much tougher competition, the dance competition show took an expected ratings hit. But it also helped stabilize Fox’s fall, boosting ratings in key timeslots. Bottom line: Fox is having its best fall in memory and heads into “American Idol” season a lock to finish the 2009-10 season in first place.

That might be one reason a Fox rep sought to downplay Lythgoe’s comments, noting it would premature to assume that any scheduling decisions have been locked in.

Why it’s no contest in the battle for the Saturday night sofa

t may surprise younger viewers to learn that Saturday nights were once a problem for ITV. In the mid-Seventies BBC One held them so surely that as the decade neared its end ITV’s Michael Grade poached Bruce Forsyth, host of the all-conquering The Generation Game. His new show was Bruce Forsyth’s Big Night. Unfortunately for them both, it was soon better known as Bruce’s Big Flop.

Thirty years on, Grade, once again at ITV, has no need of Forsyth. The old trouper’s Strictly Come Dancing, while still drawing a respectable 8 million viewers, has been crushed by The X Factor. Last weekend 12.3 million watched its semi-final and another 350, 000 its Sunday results edition. Tonight’s final is expected to attract many more. Simon Cowell may even dare to hope that 20 million will see the winner weep tears of joy/disbelief.

Times Online

Simon Cowell: a conqueror, but for how long?

“Cowell is untouchable right now, ” grumbled one frustrated executive from a rival broadcaster this autumn, as it started to dawn that ITV1’s The X Factor would hit record ratings week after week ‘ and bulldoze all opposition in the process. “He could be found doing anything scandalous, and the tabloids would just say: ‘Well, Simon needs a hobby.'”

Simon Cowell is, without doubt, the television phenomenon of his age. His talent shows have been called exploitative and trashy, and many viewers find him intolerably smug. But, as both producer and on-screen talent, he bestrides the Atlantic with the biggest TV shows in both Britain and the US. This series of The X Factor has seen the show consistently hit record viewing figures, averaging more than 11 million ‘ a 20 per cent increase on last year. The final (starting tonight with the result tomorrow) promises to deliver the show’s highest ratings ever ‘ and could even pip this year’s final of Britain’s Got Talent, whose Susan Boyle v Diversity showdown hit a peak of 19 million viewers. BGT is, of course, another Cowell show.

‘Glee’: Source says there are plans to release original content during hiatus

I know these last few days since the Glee fall finale have been tough, fellow Gleeks. Personally, I watched the ‘My Life Would Suck Without You’  performance about six times, not wanting to let the show end. Glee is not scheduled to return with new episodes until April 13 (the cast and crew will begin shooting the back nine episodes in early January) but EW does have some info that will hopefully help you handle your withdrawal: sources close to the show say that there are plans to release original content during the hiatus (similar to how clips and music were released this past summer between the May preview and the season premiere) and that an episode marathon is being discussed prior to the series returning. While nothing is official yet, Gleeks, your best bet is to check out the series twitter and Facebook pages for updates.

  1. Danny has some events that he will be at next week:

    On Monday, December 14 he will be participating in the Christmas 4 Kids Toy Bus Show in Hendersonville, TN. Danny will be performing at this event in addition to other country artists, including Gretchen Wilson, Darryl Worley, and Keith Anderson. Bo Bice will also be performing at this event.

    http://christmas4kids.org/tourbusshow.html

    Tuesday Danny will be performing at a place called 4620 Reinvented in Knoxville, TN, for a Charity event for SHF and United Way.

    http://blogs.knoxnews.com/brown/archives/2009/12/american_idol_a.shtml

    And on Wednesday he will be performing at a Jinge Bell Jam event Coyote Joe’s in Charlotte, NC, where other Country artists, (David Nail, Mallary Hope and Phil Vassar will also be performing:

    http://www.coyote-joes.stevewlee.com/events.html

    Also he got 2 more adds yesterday for his single “My Best Days” by radio stations in Portland and San Fransico.

  2. I posted this late on yesterday’s headline thread, but everyone seemed to have moved on to the Jingle Ball by then. Trying again.

    @ImMattGiraud:
    I can’t wait to tour again and travel. I’m working on putting together an EP to get the songs out to you guys. Exciting news coming up!!

    Can he put out an EP on his own? Or does this mean he’s close to a deal with someone? Either way, it will be nice to have an opportunity to buy his new music.

  3. Well, as was pointed out in the comments to the Huffington Post column…There is Anderson Cooper, but I don’t think he counts because he’s never said he is gay(or bi or whatever) even though he has been seen with his bf on vacations and around NY…but never in compromising photos etc…so he doesn’t count(because in mainstream media he is straight, even though all the gossip sites state he is gay)

  4. Well I don’t like Country music and especially don’t lke Danny’s positive songs (at least the ones I’ve heard). On the other hand, I’m a big fan of Danny’s voice and am really happy to see hei’s getting some adds this early in the game.

    The single won’t move on the country chart until all the country Xmas songs are finished. Good luck Danny. (if it was Top 40, I’d say Portland and San Francisco were great adds but I know zip about country)

  5. congratulations to david on one heck of a great year ‘“ and here’s to many more in his future :)

  9. If Adam Lambert Were a Lesbian, Would He Already Have His Own TV Show?

    Stay tuned for *more* hypothetical Adam Lambert achievements, such as:

    If Adam Lambert Could Breathe In Space, Would He Have Already Colonized Mars?

    If Adam Lambert Could Golf, Could He Take Over on the PGA Tour for Tiger?

    If Adam Lambert Was a Delta Force Commando, Would He Already Have Found Osama Bin Ladin?

    If Adam Lambert Were a Bichon Frise, Would He Win the Westminster Kennel Show?

  10. Stay tuned for *more* hypothetical Adam Lambert achievements, such as:

    If Adam Lambert Could Breathe In Space, Would He Have Already Colonized Mars?

    Dude, why would he bother? He’s already got his own planet.

    If Adam Lambert Could Golf, Could He Take Over on the PGA Tour for Tiger?

    Nah! Golf requires one to get up too early in the morning.

    If Adam Lambert Was a Delta Force Commando, Would He Already Have Found Osama Bin Ladin?

    Duh.

    If Adam Lambert Were a Bichon Frise, Would He Win the Westminster Kennel Show?

    Honey, he’d so be a standard poodle, not a Bichon. Many more haircut options. And, yes, he would win. :D

  11. I have said since day one that it wasn’t homophobia that was spewed against Adam it was Sexism.

  12. oh mrs. p….. i’m sure if there is an interview there will be more interesting things for he and lk to discuss than one’s religion – david never discusses his in this kind of setting, so it’s doubtful we’ll see this kind of discussion, hahah… for shame mrs. p – is there anything or one in this world that you do like? not that larry king cares, or anyone else for that matter, how you may feel, but ’tis the season, you know – to be jolly, christmas cheer, ho, ho, ho and all that rot :)

  13. Love that the article about Gridlock call Adam “The Mega-Draw”. And he plays right after the countdown-or during-so he doesn’t have to worry about providing his own pyro-technics. And..since I have plans for NewYears Eve-I can watch it at 3am-if someone streams it. Yay!

  14. Danny has some events that he will be at next week:

    Danny’s Christmas event for kids with the tour buses for music artists looks like a lot of fun, I saw Gretchen Wilson is also participating. I also saw that Danny is among the featured country artists at next month’s “Sound and Speed” event in Nashville, they have some big NASCAR stars who will be there for that along with the country artists. The event supports a children’s charity and also the Country Music Hall of Fame.

    Danny is definitely keeping busy. Hoping I may be able to attend one of the live performances this month, will see how the schedule works out. He’s also being very true to his word about wanting to tie support for good causes with his music. He must have at least a half-dozen fundraisers on his Nov/Dec schedule, and at least two in January with the Sound and Speed event and a benefit for St. Jude’s hospital in Louisiana.

    This was fun to see, Danny’s visit at the Academy of Country Music last month where he stopped in to do a performance for their staff and sign up for his membership. They’ve put up a video with parts of his performance of My Best Days, and some short interview clips.

  15. Oh poor Archie, but maybe they can talk Mormonism since Larry King’s wife is a devout Mormon like Archie. I detest Larry King by the way.

    Is being on Larry King a really positive step for anybody? I get the feeling that most people who could be beneficial had rather have a root canal than watch him.

  16. Being on LKL is good promo unless the person is talking about their scandals. Then I would call it a negative.

  17. Love that MovieWeb article,

    I thought it appropriate, though, to point out the stark contrast between Lambert, accompanied by his 3-ring shock-circus and the understated music-is-the-thing performance by Kris Allen on So You Think You Can Dance on this week’s results show.

    Sooooo when Adam comes out and just sings in front of his band on SYTYCD and sings it very well, just like he’s done on numerous shows now, does that mean he’s all about the music too? I mean granted the AMAs sucked vocally they did, icky, unneceessary visuals but apples to oranges to compare Kris’s SYTYCD number to Adam’s AMA one. Saying that Adam is like the Spice Girls, Milli Vanilli and the Pussycats Dolls most of whom can’t sing or sing badly all the time and really are just glitzy hollow acts, denies the fact that since the AMAs, and before Kris’s SYTYCD performance (btw), Adam was just singing in front of a band as well. Nothing, but the music on Letterman, or his performance on Ellen, Early Show and no doubt that will be the same on SYTYCD when he performs there.

    The AMAs were mostly bad vocals and OTT sexualized images for lots of people that night, so nature of the AMA beast it seems. But one (bad) performance in the context of that doesn’t equal not being able to sing or not being about ‘just the music,’ in other places and at other times.

    Also

    It would also go without saying that I think his lyrics are infinitely more tenable, not only for radio play, but also as something I won’t hesitate to play through my car audio or home stereo off my iPod playlist when my kids are listening.

    Well this person needs to get a clue about radio play beyond Adam if they think that FYE isn’t tenable in terms of acceptable lyrics. I mean if they personally don’t want to have to worry about songs like FYE on their iPod or in general on radio, totally get their point. But this writer needs to get a serious clue about what kind of music there is on Top 40 these days if FYE offends their delicate sensibilities. Oh and in that same vein, WWFM is getting spins on radio as well, and is as innocuous as anything that Kris Allen would be singing. So once again, Adam isn’t just one, narrow and shocking/bad thing.

    But why let a few facts get in the way of really bad comparisons?

  18. ”Is being on Larry King a really positive step for anybody? I get the feeling that most people who could be beneficial had rather have a root canal than watch him.”

    when you’re promoting something, face time on tv is face time… david will be singing a christmas song from his cd, so in this instance, taking into account kings target audience, it’s very beneficial :D they should be very receptive to that… he’s there to get his music across, something he does very well anytime he’s on the telly, so the king appearance for him is all good…

  19. Stay tuned for *more* hypothetical Adam Lambert achievements, such as:

    If Adam Lambert Could Breathe In Space, Would He Have Already Colonized Mars?

    If Adam Lambert Could Golf, Could He Take Over on the PGA Tour for Tiger?

    If Adam Lambert Was a Delta Force Commando, Would He Already Have Found Osama Bin Ladin?

    If Adam Lambert Were a Bichon Frise, Would He Win the Westminster Kennel Show?

    I’m hoping that at least some of these events will be jam packed, like the Concert at Legends Danny did the other night. I wouldn’t be surprised if the concert at Coyote Joe’s was full of people not only because of Danny,but also because of David Nail, who is popular right now and has a song that is a big hit.

    And that Sound and Speed Event, with people like Country artist Chris Young and the Nascar Drivers sounds like it’s going to be a good event. I like that Danny is doing something that is benefitting the Country Music Hall of Fame.

    I definitely like that Danny is participating in different events and concerts, that other country artists will be apart of, because more country fans will end up being exposed to his music.

    He is working constantly between the radio tour and doing different gigs. I like that he is keeping his name out there and trying to gain more fans. The radio tour is definitely benefitting him, some of the stations that have added his song were stations he visited on the radio tour, and did different events with. I think that more stations he has visited and will visit will also add his song.

    His song officially goes for adds on Monday and then for sale, on the Tuesday after next week. So I think that we will definitely see an increase in his radio airplay and number of adds because of these things.

  22. Being on Larry King Live is great promotion. Good for Archie. Larry does have a good size audience and they may be interested in purchasing Archie’s Christmas album. How could this possibly be bad?

  23. Well I don’t like Country music and especially don’t lke Danny’s positive songs (at least the ones I’ve heard). On the other hand, I’m a big fan of Danny’s voice and am really happy to see hei’s getting some adds this early in the game.

    I am a fan of Danny’s voice as well, but I loathe Country in general and his songs are exactly the type of songs and reasons I dislike Country. But I still wish him nothing, but the best.

  24. we hope seriously – the holiday season will soon draw to a close, and one must strike while the iron’s hot…

  25. Being on Larry King Live is great promotion. Good for Archie. Larry does have a good size audience and they may be interested in purchasing Archie’s Christmas album. How could this possibly be bad?

    Makes sense to me. LKL’s audience is much more likely to buy Christmas music from Archie than many of Archie’s teen fans are. Although, I’m picturing a bunch of parent’s of tween’s opening their Christmas present to find an Archie Christmas CD.

  26. Is being on Larry King a really positive step for anybody? I get the feeling that most people who could be beneficial had rather have a root canal than watch him.

    The LKL show was taped several days ago. David twittered about it. He said he performed on the show. I think it’s an LKL special focusing on the Christmas theme. He may not even be interviewed, but who knows. I see it as a way of garnering exposure to a different sort of audience, the kind of audience who would watch the Larry King Live show. I would bet that the demographic for that show includes many of SuBo’s audience. Yep, I’m pert near sure that thar’s gold in them thar Lar’ King Hills.

  27. Well, I’m very selfish and am happy about the LKL appearance just because *I* want to see him sing and talk to Larry. Larry was good to him before, and I’m looking forward to the airing.

    Don’t see how it could possibly hurt, in David’s case.

  28. How great was it to see FYE music video on the small screen! Number 16 on VH1 countdown. Gotta keep voting so it reaches number one!

    I really love the song and the video even more. One of my top 5 on the album.

  29. I am a fan of Danny’s voice as well, but I loathe Country in general and his songs are exactly the type of songs and reasons I dislike Country. But I still wish him nothing, but the best.

    I love Danny’s voice. And I have been a long-time fan of country music, though the male artists whose music I buy tend to be the less hard-core twang-y ones. For some reason, I have a higher twang threshold with the female artists, lol. So far, I’m really enjoying the combination of Danny’s vocal talent and delivery with the country songs they’ve selected. And some more ~soulful songs, as at least two have had a very bluesy sound of the first five that have been made public for his album.
    Danny’s performance this Weds in Charlotte is on a billing with David Nail, Mallory Hope and Phil Vassar. I’m hoping to attend, will be interested how that goes as Danny will have a less ‘typical’ country music style compared to the others. Although I suspect he’ll have at least as many of his fans there as people do seem to be coming out to see and support Danny in all these live performances lately.

  30. Referring to his brother’s graduation today:

    thedavidcook: @ACookOfficial looks like a goob. But congrats anyway…

    That’s some brotherly love right there. LOL

  31. Don’t see how it could possibly hurt, in David’s case.

    I hope that’s the case since I’m 100% in favor of anything that helps Archie. He was my fave in AI7 and is still my #1 pick of that crop.

    ‘Idol’s Archuleta hopes holiday CD helps expand his audience

    Dec. 12–It would seem you’re in a good career position when Disney, the juggernaut of the entertainment world, seeks you out to tour with its latest teen pop princess or to duet with its reigning starlet on her TV show’s new soundtrack.

    But if you’re David Archuleta, runner-up from 2008’s “American Idol” show, there are even bigger career issues — to take your music to a broader audience than the teen pop world and to achieve artistic integrity.

    That’s why Archuleta, having had two hit singles and with his poppy 2008 self-titled debut disc about to hit platinum, is recording a new disc he says will “show more of my personality.”

    And it’s one reason Archuleta, who turns 19 this month, says he recorded “Christmas From the Heart.” The holiday disc, released in October, this week was No. 34 on Billboard’s albums char

    -snip-
    And while Archuleta says he’s indebted to “Idol,” he also says he hopes to move beyond that image, as well.

    “That’s what people [focus on], ’cause they’re the ones who voted for me and allowed me to do this,” he says. “But the reason I wanted to do ‘American Idol’ was so I could be able to do my own career. So it’s not like I want to be, ‘Hi, I’m from American Idol.’ Ã’Å¡… I’m hoping that people will be able to say, ‘Hey, David Archuleta,’ just to be known for your hard work; to be respected as an artist.”

  33. Well I don’t like Country music and especially don’t lke Danny’s positive songs (at least the ones I’ve heard). On the other hand, I’m a big fan of Danny’s voice and am really happy to see hei’s getting some adds this early in the game.

    I don’t like Danny mainly because of his blatant use of the sympathy card, but I don’t see what’s so bad about positive songs! That little magic rainbow is still high in the sky.

    I’m not a country fan either, but I really like Danny’s songs so far; they definitely trend pop-country or blues-country, and he has no manufactured twang whatsoever. Brian Mansfield did say that Mark Bright and Danny did all the “message” songs first (probably because they’d be the easiest for Danny and I believe they had a lot of songs that type sent to them for him), but he said the pop sounding “Crazy Not to” was very “fun and sweet”. I think Danny will surprise us, just like he did on “Come Rain/Shine” on the AI show.

    I am also really glad Danny has gotten adds and is charting, even with all the Christmas songs out, and even though his official adds don’t start until Monday and the song isn’t for sale until Dec. 22.

    Oh yes GG, you know the drill. ;)

  40. Is being on Larry King a really positive step for anybody? I get the feeling that most people who could be beneficial had rather have a root canal than watch him

    I agree with those that say it can be beneficial and I hope it will for Archie. He’s going to be able to focus on his music and talk about that to a big audience who would be type to buy an Xmas album by the charming young man they see on the show.

    I mean I personally am not thrilled by LKL as interviewer, but it can be a good opportunity and I think it will be for Archie.

    I think being on LKL would be counterproductive for Adam, but that’s because of his situation. That won’t be the case for Archie because his situation is different. So I’m all for seeing Archie getting something good from going on LKL and think it’s good for Adam not to appear on LKL. Win-win, as far as I’m concerned. So I don’t see how it’s a situation of having it only bad if one based who get their fave is.

  41. This is a little video about that Sound and Speed event, wow ‘” how much fun will that be for Danny and his fans. Looks like they get just a huge turnout for it, and benefit some worthwhile causes.

    http://soundandspeed.org/other/promo-video

    That looks like fun and I think that Danny will get a good amount of exposure from that.

    but he said the pop sounding ‘Crazy Not to’  was very ‘fun and sweet’ .

    I am definitely interested in hearing the romantic pop country song “Crazy Not To” that Danny will have on his album. I am glad that Brian Mansfield liked that song. And I am glad that Danny will have romantic songs on his album, he needs a variety of songs up there.

  42. “‘Hi, I’m from American Idol.’ Ã’Å¡’ ¦ I’m hoping that people will be able to say, ‘Hey, David Archuleta,’ just to be known for your hard work; to be respected as an artist.’  ”

    OKI just busted a gut laughing. Even David Archuleta gets it. American Idol is an albatross around these kids neck and the sooner peeps realize it the more these kids will get the respect they deserve. It always makes me feel good when any of the alumni are just introduced with their name or given a title like Singing sensation or Gold Record Artist.

    So, other than Carrie, I have never heard any of the other idols say that they want to be forever known as an American Idol, and I think that is a very good thing.

    This is quite good news for this song. Still dislike the song, but still really happy by how they stuck with it, did all the traditional groundwork things, kept slogging and increases in spins, getting out there doing it, and some good TV appearances…all have helped and now it’s a pretty good hit song. Maybe top 20 soon *fingers crossed*

  49. I think that yes David Archuleta does get it. (and I would not say “even David Archuleta gets it” because he has been singing for years and working non-stop since Idol.) To have a career of some type in music is a life-long goal for the Idols and like any professional athlete or classical musician who started working at their craft in childhood, so the most successful of the Idols have actually been hard at work for many years pre-Idol(Cook, Adam, Carrie, Allison, etc. had been singing for many years too.)
    And, as an example of already working on singing (and let’s have Justin Bieber’s duet with Jordan in our minds as we listen to these great peeks into the past and remember that Archie was around Bieber’s age here): (Archie with a full orchestra around age 12 or 13: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=THgKxwTc7y0
    or his 8th grade talent show: (with girls already screaming): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AdjGDb1aWXY
    Hard work and dedication to music is the underpinning of a lifelong music industry career.

  50. Oh incase anyone missed it late in the yesterdays headlines last night.

    Archie will be on the CBS Early Show on Monady Dec 14th. At least according to tivo and dvrs. lol

  51. I am definitely interested in hearing the romantic pop country song ‘Crazy Not To’  that Danny will have on his album. I am glad that Brian Mansfield liked that song. And I am glad that Danny will have romantic songs on his album, he needs a variety of songs up there.

    I’d love to hear that one, too. We also haven’t heard the song that made Merideth Andrews cry, I think (when she heard Danny recording it in the studio where she’d stopped in to see Mark Bright from her label).
    I’ve always felt Danny would want and be sure to have a nice mix of songs for his album. He did well with a pretty balanced range of slower and very uptempo, serious and fun songs throughout the AI season and his AI tour set. Not to mention that bluesy side and the bit of Latin that he likes. One of the more versatile performers this year in that respect. Seems you can definitely see that coming through in these early choices for the album, along with the heartfelt ballads.

    What’s surprising me in the acoustic sets for the radio tour and live club performances are the R&B-ish songs they appear to be including along with the country / country-pop / country/gospel choices. Kara’s song I Still Believe feels like a bit of a hybrid to me, but the latest song Be Somebody strikes me as quite R&B, almost old-school Motown at least the way we’ve seen it performed live. And then Danny has been including a cover of Brian McKnight’s Back at One , whether as a change of pace on the radio tour, or because it also may have a home in the album and we just haven’t heard that yet. Danny always referred to thinking about an idea of “modern soul country” in his early interviews about the record labels he was talking to.

    I’ve really been wondering if we didn’t take the “soul” part of that literally enough, based on what we are seeing. Should be very interesting to hear how the more R&B-tinged songs sound with full instrumentals in the studio versions.

    And LLWD got a spin on AT 40 as a “Breakout”. According to its website, the AT40 is syndicated to over 500 stations worldwide (note: that’s worldwide so don’t expect a 500 spin increase this week). AT40 is going to Top songs of 2009 for the next two weeks and Top songs of the 2000s the following week. Next Top 40 countdown based on the current chart will be Jan 9/10th.

  55. Also, LLWD has set a NEW HIGH for iTunes ‘” it is at #27 ‘” the highest it had ever gotten before was #28, back on Sept. 30. So congrats to Kris on that!

    I had thought when Danny said he was interested in doing Modern Soul Country, that he meant that he would sing Country songs in a soulful way. I didn’t think that he actually meant putting soul songs on his country album. The acoustic versions of some of the songs he’s been singing sound like straight up R&B. But maybe the studio versions of the songs will have more of a country sound to it.

    I think Danny could do very well with a romantic song- he seems to excell in this area. Always glad to hear news on Danny. I know that he’s working hard on the road promoting his music.

    I think that Danny would do well with romantic songs too. I am glad that he will have some on his album. I am glad to see he is out working hard to get his name and music out there. I think that will pay off for him.

    That performance with a full orchestra is amazing !! He was already soulful at age 12 or 13? Was it before vocal paralysis or after? I really want to see the rest of the song but it’s lost?

  59. I think that Danny would do well with romantic songs too. I am glad that he will have some on his album. I am glad to see he is out working hard to get his name and music out there. I think that will pay off for him.

    Yes, he is definitely working just as hard as the top 2. He does have the midwestern work ethic, lol. I suppose this is no worse than driving a semi by day and traveling 2 hours nightly to direct at two different churches.

    The acoustic versions of some of the songs he’s been singing sound like straight up R&B. But maybe the studio versions of the songs will have more of a country sound to it.

    It is difficult to tell from acoustic versions. To me, Kara’s song sounds like it could definitely have country sound (didn’t Brian Mansfield say that it had a lot of fiddle work in it?); however “Be Somebody” sure sounded straight up R&B. Should provide good variety! I , personally, hope for more than one love song (uptempo or ballad), my favorite Danny type!

    LLWD moved up one spot to #31 Top 40, and one spot to #16 HAC, still with the 4th strongest spincrease on the published HAC chart. Pick up of two stations on both Top 40 & HAC yesterday.

    @adamlambert Keep it up Adam. You are a star, you are well known and your proudctions and singing are fabulous

    who knew he was an Adam fan?! pretty kool:)

  63. I have a hypothetical: If Adam Lambert were a slightly chubby 27 year old straight woman with bad skin who tries to cover it up with massive amounts of make-up, a habit to stick her tongue out while singing and all those images/videos with men all over the net; would he be able go go past the first round of auditions for AI?

  64. “Yeah for Kris! Is this giving the album a bump at all?”

    The album was #115 a couple of hours ago; #104 now.

  65. Congrats to David A for all the great exposure he is getting and deserves IMO.

    I think LKL is great exposure and doing this Christmas album was a great move, because he is getting recognized by so many people for the incredible voice he has and is getting tons of exposure to a vast audience.

    I just wish everyone could hear him live at one of his Christmas concerts. It was honestly the most incredible concert ever, and I have been to many great concerts.

  66. American Idol is an albatross around these kids neck and the sooner peeps realize it the more these kids will get the respect they deserve. It always makes me feel good when any of the alumni are just introduced with their name or given a title like Singing sensation or Gold Record Artist.

    AI is no more an “albatross” for Archie than Star Search was. What IS an albatross for any artist is to stagnate, i.e. rest solely on the laurels of past accomplishments for years and years and not move forward with new achievements.

  67. Huffington Post article = totally useless, vapid piece of
    crapola IMO. That site is becoming an online facsimile of
    The Star. Just mention Adam or any other flavor of the
    month and vomit out a bunch of gobbledygook; who
    cares as long as you get hits. Blech!

    These are small unit increases when things are this low on the iTunes chart but all three have been steadily heading up since Wednesday.

  69. Oh, maturin, you really topped your usual snark there. That was comedy gold!

    I’m too lazy to do this myself, but has anybody looked at the iTunes album rankings and eliminated the holiday albums to see where the Idols stand right now? Because Adam (#81 & #128) and Kris (#109) are looking a little anemic at this point. What typically happens after the holidays, I mean aside from *all* music sales dropping off?

    And the answer is YES!!!

    These are small unit increases when things are this low on the iTunes chart but all three have been steadily heading up since Wednesday.

    It was up into the 60s though, so after getting the bump from the view it has fallen back another 20 spots. It will be interesting when the charts for this week come out. Normally albums drop somewhere around 30% in their third week, but with Christmas so close one would hope sales would be higher than that. I think a positive sign would be less than a 20% drop, otherwise I am not sure how well it will sell through the holiday season.

  72. What typically happens after the holidays, I mean aside from *all* music sales dropping off?

    AI starts!! Lol. After Christmas having a hit song becomes even more popular. WWFM and LLWD are both positioned to chart well after the break, so hopefully then those two singles keep climbing.

  73. But is Adam gonna be a bitch Bichon Frise?

    Or is that a bitchin’ Bichon Frise?

    The word bitchin’ usually makes me think of the Dead Milkmen song Bitchin’ Camaro. Just me? Okay then.

  74. ok so i listened to the free single of archie’s joy to the world on itunes and LOVED it!! so happy this year for my two favorite idols-archie and adam! (polar opposites i know) lol

  75. If Adam was rincarated there is just no chance he would be a Bichon Frise! Just not possible!

  76. Hello (waves happily at everyone here)! If anyone in this thread lives in/near Atlanta and hears anything about why Kris is in Atlanta today (he was allegedly spotted in the ATL airport) can you please post it in the Kris thread? That’s an odd detour for someone who was in NYC late last night and has a gig in Philly tomorrow. Supposedly an Atlanta deejay mentioned on-air a few days ago something about Kris coming to town, but no one seems to know why. Thanks in advance!

  77. I had thought when Danny said he was interested in doing Modern Soul Country, that he meant that he would sing Country songs in a soulful way.

    That’s how I took it originally. Thinking of how Danny put his soulful vocal sound into songs like WHTM, JTTW, or I Hope You Dance from the show.

    I didn’t think that he actually meant putting soul songs on his country album. The acoustic versions of some of the songs he’s been singing sound like straight up R&B. But maybe the studio versions of the songs will have more of a country sound to it.

    Kara’s song is bluesy but to me does also have a country feel, she wrote it with one or more well-known country songwriters. And Brian Mansfield said that one had a very “tasty” country sound in the studio version, I think.
    The videos surfacing so far (none great quality) of Danny singing Be Somebody with acoustic backup sound pure R&B. They probably will give it country instrumentals for the album, but I have a hard time imagining that particular song will ever sound very “country” theinstrumentals notwithstanding. In combination with the inclusion of Back at One (very beautiful) on his radio tour, really does have me wondering if there will be a mix of R&B in Danny’s album aiming to fulfill that “modern soul country” description in a more literal fashion than I ever first guessed.
    It could explain some things. Kara’s song is one we know was written specifically for Danny and for this album, and it does have that clear bluesy side to it. Also when Danny came straight off the AI tour to perform at the MSMC college concert, he sang quite a few Motown covers along with the country tunes. I took that as a transitional stage then, but maybe it wasn’t. Maybe it was reflective of a mix of sounds that will be on the album also.

  78. Posted this earlier in the wrong thread.
    Q3, can you explain this to me. I really value your opinions. :)

    I have a question? Maybe I am dense but if an artist’s album is doing better than his singles, why are the single sales important? I mean, if more people already have the album, why buy a single? I understand the radio spins being important because that introduces more people to the music, which in turn makes them want to buy the album. As an artist, aren’t album sales way better than single sales? More money?

    ETA: Don’t go, Mrs. P. I like your posts.

  79. thecour928 So i was just handed 2 free tix to see the fray, kris allen, shakira.. Starts at 7… PROBLEM: whos gonna join?!? 7 minutes ago from txt

    Um, how come no one knew that Kris is performing with The Fray and Shakira tonight? (I’m assuming this tweet refers to tonight)

  80. ok, never mind – mystery solved. Kris is playing a private party for Cumulus Broadcasting in Atlanta tonight — that tweeter about getting free tix for concert with Kris, The Fray and Shakira was just confused.

    WATCH out for outrageous American Idol runner-up ADAM LAMBERT.

    He’s like the new GEORGE MICHAEL – but for all the right reasons.

    He caused a storm at the American Music Awards and he’ll be launched here next year.

    His album For Your Entertainment is going to be great

    Someone should tell him that just because he is Dave’s brother that it doesn’t mean he will look good in a beard. Because he doesn’t. But his nephew is cute.

    Good for Kris. Even though this *sounds* condescending, it isn’t: he’s the little engine that could. I think I can; I think I can. I know I could; I know I could.

    I wouldn’t put too much stock in this as it’s a tabloid newspaper. It could happen, but that’s not a reliable source.

    Too bad. I think he should be amongst the people who adore him. Maybe he can be the next Robbie Williams.

  88. awesome news about adam hitting the UK next year

    I dont know if it was mentioned here, but Sony also announced that Adam will be lauched in Brazil in Jan. Adam and Ke$ha were the only ones chosen to be promoted as new artists. Former idols were made available but not really promoted, so lets see what sony intends to do.

    I really though Brazil would end up scorned… Not big news like hitting UK, but still is a large country, and most major acts tour here.

    That is good news for Adam’s fans in Brazil!!! :)

  90. ‘Just Like You’  isn’t superior overall to those other two releases, but it establishes the 17-year-old California native ahead of the general ‘Idol’  pack of wannabes, a worthy successor to Pink and Joss Stone.

    How can the writer envision Alison to be a successor to Joss Stone?How are their music related?I’m confused????

    I’m beginning to think writers get paid by the word as opposed to getting paid to actually think or do research!

  92. Actually I am a pretty nice person who was told that this was a pretty good site to be able to talk about some of the people who have come off of American Idol.

    I feel bad that you were personally criticized. I hope that you post again.

    What David Archuleta thinks of Adam Lambert’s performance

    So what does Archuleta ‘“ who Dec. 18 brings his Christmas show tour to Stroudsburg’s Sherman Theater ‘“ think of the controversy over his successor as runner-up, Adam Lambert, rubbing a male dancer’s face in his crotch during his performance at the ‘American Music Awards’  broadcast on ABC-TV, which Disney owns?

    -snip-
    ‘I guess that’s just his, um, image, I guess. I don’t know,’  the unfailingly polite Archuleta says in a telephone interview to promote his Stroudsburg concert. ‘You know, I didn’t watch the awards. I’ve been hearing a little about it, but I didn’t watch it. So I don’t ‘ ¦’  he trails off with a laugh.

    Archuleta asks whether I have an opinion.

    Told that I think it has hurt his career, he responds:

    ‘Oh yeah?’  Archuleta says. ‘I guess that’s part of being an artist. You just get to choose what you show the people and what you show them in a performance and stuff like that. That’s part of being an artist ‘“ you show what ‘ ¦

    -snip-
    Lambert’s debut disc, ‘For Your Entertainment,’  debuted at No. 3 last week, but this week went into freefall to No. 22 ‘“ just a few slots above Archuleta’s holiday disc, ‘Christmas From the Heart,’  which has been out since October.

    Awww… that was sweet.

    It’s also how I imagine Adam answering the same kind of question when he was 18/19. Very talented and polite, a little wary of the ways of the big bad world. Very accepting and supportive of other people.

  96. this is a cute tweet from Archie’s concert going on right now in Cleveland , Ohio.

    AnneMarieFOD Omg! The man sitting next to me was crying after Prayer of the Children.

  97. It’s also how I imagine Adam answering the same kind of question when he was 18/19. Very talented and polite, a little wary of the ways of the big bad world. Very accepting and supportive of other people.

    I agree. Both are unfailingly polite and don’t easily say nasty things about others. Supportive of fellow artists. I think even though David might not have liked the performance, he believes in artistic expression. Crap…..he’s in Stroudsburg, PA this weekend, I was there last weekend, such is life……glad to see Archie selling cds and getting great reviews!

  98. wow I see David Archie is still the same old babbling, inarticulate kid even after a year in the business. how old is he? 19 going on 10? and jive has made no effort to coach him . even 17 yr old Allison handled that question better.

    i don’t speak archie so what he said made no sense to me.

  99. I didn’t read the whole article, but I’m thinking it might be the way the comments were quoted in the post. But I don’t know….(since most will read this out of context, I’m being supportive of David A.)

  100. wow I see David Archie is still the same old babbling, inarticulate kid even after a year in the business. how old is he? 19 going on 10?

    Oh, I find him sweet, honest and endearing! I admire that he may stumble for words rather than be so quick to criticize..(even after a year in the business) …He has a good heart. Archie, be yourself, don’t change!!

  101. David’s just that kind of person, he’s not going to say anything that will offend anyone, so he fumbled his words, I would too if I had to talk about Adam’s ‘performance’

  102. Album review…
    David Archuleta’s “X-mas from the Heart

    David Archuleta’s ‘ X-mas from the Heart’ , the album for your holiday season. His beautiful, crafted voice has been commented on being ideal for these selected songs. The beautiful music accompanying David is what makes them stand out. A compilation of Classic styles is what’s being used. Such styles remind you of the 1960’s group Moody Blues or the great musical Evita. The song that shows how special this album really is comes w/hearing What Child Is This. Towards the end, it includes guitar playing w/an awesome Hispanic sound. Next, Riu Riu Chiu & Ave Maria, where David’s Latino background is most appreciated. Other songs you’ll truly enjoy are Joy to the World, O Come All Ye Faithful & Pat-a-pan (it begins in French, concludes in English). Overall, the perfect selection was made. Also, a lot of hard work went into this album. Just singing the songs are actually harder to do which caused concerns of straining his voice (the major setback of his past). Even in the written section where he thanked everyone, he did a very nice job clarifying that he wanted to reach people of all backgrounds: religious & spiritual beliefs, all ages, languages and so on, w/these x-mas songs. He definitely captured the ‘message and spirit’  that we all will love. ‘X-mas from the Heart’  will give David Archuleta the recognition he finally deserves!

  103. That interviewer put Archie in a very tough spot. Reminds me of the DJ who recently asked Cookie about Kris Allen’s record sales.

    I was thinking that maybe Archie’s publicist had kept that question off limits for interviews, but apparently not for this interview.

    He has a good heart.

    Yes, he does.

  104. wow I see David Archie is still the same old babbling, inarticulate kid even after a year in the business. how old is he? 19 going on 10?

    That is a pretty awkward question for anyone to answer and David is unfailingly polite and refuses to say anything negative about another artist. If I was asked the same question and trying to be polite, I would stumble all over myself as well.

    this is a cute tweet from Archie’s concert going on right now in Cleveland , Ohio.

    AnneMarieFOD Omg! The man sitting next to me was crying after Prayer of the Children.

    That is when I started crying at the concert and then couldn’t stop through the rest of it. I am not the crying type but I was just so touched.

  105. Fame Whore
    An individual who is willing to do anything, regardless of how humiliating or demeaning, to achieve notoriety.

    More often than not, this involves appearing on multiple reality television shows and/or having “private” sex videos “leaked” to the press.

    Richard Heene is the biggest fame whore on the planet

    I don’t know anyone from last season’s Idol that meets this description. The “ladies” who slept with Tiger Woods are cornering the market.

  106. I think I’m in the right thread…. Meredith Baxter Birney… You are my fave t.v. mom. You rock!

  107. The ‘ladies’  who slept with Tiger Woods are cornering the market.

    Well that’s for sure… ugh….

  108. I don’t know anyone from last season’s Idol that meets this description.

    Oh I’m sure I can scrounge up some pictures and video clips not to mention lots of interviews that can be defined as fame wh**ing : )

    From The View

    “I’m surprised,” Adam told the girls. “I’m like, ‘Really. Is it that big of a deal?'”

    Really? You honestly thought that what you did in the spur of the moment wasn’t gonna cause reaction? Puh-lease. Even pre-school kids know better than to not follow what was expected of them for fear of punishment.

  109. Like a performance? great!..enjoy! Don’t like a certain performance?..fine…don’t watch. But, famewhoring?….please. Seems an ridiculous extreme way to say ” I don’t care for that performer”

  110. just took a pic of @adamlambert holding up a pair of pink panties haha love it. Have to upload later…

    Twittered from Jared Eng (founder of JustJared) at the Miami Jingle Ball. I am sure we will be seeing that tomorrow on justjared.com :-)

  111. Not that I find Archie’s babbling that endearing…However, when he is comfortable about an issue he usually is eloquent enough. Ask him how he feels about Allison’s performances and he won’t be at a loss for words. However, when he has mixed or negative feelings about something, he usually babbles. It just means that he has a hard time lying…or bs’ing, but he also doesn’t like saying negative things about people. I don’t think that’s a bad thing. Archie will probably learn how to smoothly bs as he gets older without having to lie but I do think it’s a bit of an art….Most of us never had to worry about being that diplomatic at that age..or even now.

    ETA: Allison is a very good friend of Adam, so unlike Archie, she will want to support her friend. She won’t have any mixed feelings. So I don’t think her straight answer indicates that she is more mature than Archie (although she might be for other reasons).

    I find Larry King extremely painful. However, I’m betting that his audience is the perfect target for a Christmas album that doesn’t have a punch of pop remakes. The itunes promo is great for Archie but public appearances go a very long way for Christmas albums especially given the lack of good radio support. Not even Josh Grobin’s Noel did well with sales until he had some public appearances (from what I remember, it was the Oprah appearance that sealed the deal for him).

  112. But, famewhoring?’ ¦.please. Seems an ridiculous extreme way to say ‘  I don’t care for that performer’ 

    As a really smart friend of mine said:
    when it’s not about the MUSIC, it’s fame whoring lol
    when it’s ALL ABOUT shock and awe to be famous and make money…that’s fame whoring

    and ITA

  113. Archie is a good kid but it is going to be awhile before he is perceived as an adult. He is very youthful looking and acting, but he does have a beautiful voice and I hope his Christmas album sells well. Some people like Larry King and some people don’t, but it’s good P.R. for Archie. That’s what makes the entertainment business go round.

    really, really smart friend…

    Don’t we all have one of those?

    he? 19 going on 10?

    He isn’t anymore the same old babbling inarticulate kid. only when he is asked a very sticky question. He has come a long way in every aspect.
    Go Archie. Don’t change, you are doing fine.
    Still lots of people love you and respect you. I for one.

  119. Just finished recording this week’s FEEL THE SPIN (Sunday, 2pm ET/11am PT). Had SO MUCH FUN. The playlist: http://feelthespin.blogspot.com

    This is Larry Flicks show on Sirius XM radio – the playlist includes Loaded Smile!!

    That’s awesome!!!

  121. I missed two episodes of Glee and would love to have a rerun just before it returns! I already miss the show, like so many others.

  122. Is it hard to understand what he said?

    Not at all. Archie would be the last person on earth to speak negatively about someone publicly and I doubt very much if he is any different privately. Of course I don’t know, but that’s the vibe I get.

  123. iluvai…gotcha. I’m rather weak on some abbrev. (I wear out the urban dictionary!)

  124. AnneMarieFOD Omg! The man sitting next to me was crying after Prayer of the Children.

    That is when I started crying at the concert and then couldn’t stop through the rest of it. I am not the crying type but I was just so touched.

    During his concert, he talked about his charity work and how it is meaningful for him. He said there are so many innocent children who are victims of this world, for example, in Yugoslavia, something is going on and children are hurting. Then, he started singing only with piano. His voice and emotions filled the entire theater in complete silence and it just hit you so hard.

    I also became emotional when he sang “Fields of Gold”. Not just perfect pitch and gorgeous tone of voice, but the connection with lyrics and emotions take you to a beautiful field on a sunny bright day.

    Also, I was surprised by so many adults and families there in his concert. By the time when he sang encore, I saw couples holding each other and totally got into the song with reverence. It was touching.

  125. I missed two episodes of Glee and would love to have a rerun just before it returns! I already miss the show, like so many others.

    Here’s Glee’s page at Hulu:

    http://www.hulu.com/search?query=glee&st=1

    The last 2 episodes, Mattress and Sectionals, are there to watch for free. Don’t wait too long to watch- it seems like they only keep episodes up for a few weeks. They were both great episodes!

    I wish Adam every success on other continents, but I’m sick of him right now. It’s completely hypocritical of him to go around acting like he’s a victim because people didn’t like his AMA performance. You’d think, with all of his stage experience, that he’d have already figured out how to work with and for other people. I guess he’s learning now.

  126. ive always been a fan of archie..hes my second fav, but he is in my opinion still very immature for his age b/c hes almost 19, but i blame that on his shelterd homelife…he is a wonderful human being and a total gentleman, in a few years he will grow into his skin a little more :)

  127. still waiting for vids of the Spielberg event National Anthem as well. the very short clip sounded amaaazing. Come on people..use your web sleuthing skills (I have none)

    ETA ..word is he ended w/ classic Adam vocal bang

  128. ive always been a fan of archie..hes my second fav, but he is in my opinion still very immature for his age b/c hes almost 19, but i blame that on his shelterd homelife’ ¦he is a wonderful human being and a total gentleman, in a few years he will grow into his skin a little more :)

    I think people confuse maturity and what I call worldliness. Many kids swear, have sex, scowl at everyone rather than smile (which makes him seem younger), etc. People might call those kids mature, but that does not IMO show any maturity. In fact, the self control David shows in his life is indeed a sign of maturity.

    I have heard many things about his older sister and younger brother that are way more worldly than David. They all came from the same house, but David just chooses to be the way he is.

    I have three kids who were brought up in the same house in a religious (what some might call sheltered) home. One made choices to be worldly while the other two did not. I would say the one who was worldly just to fit in was actually a lot less mature. He is now almost 24 and has turned out quite well, but he would say the same thing about himself as a teen.

    Those who have followed David closely know how mature he is. In fact, even Cook, who knows David quite well, has said several times in interviews that David is 18 going on 40.

    As for his youthfulness, I think he will be grateful in 20 years that he looks so young, just like his mother.

    FWIW

  129. Glad to see that the mood has lightened up a bit in this room. Here’s something that should help brighten it up even more. This is Frogcooke’s depiction of Archie’s tweet from earlier tonight…

    DavidArchie: Defyyying gravityyy! Haha. Got to catch some of the musical Wicked in the theater right next door!

    hilarious!

  131. Those who have followed David closely know how mature he is. In fact, even Cook, who knows David quite well, has said several times in interviews that David is 18 going on 40.

    I think you are right on there…. How could he not be with what he has lived through.

    As for his youthfulness, I think he will be grateful in 20 years that he looks so young, just like his mother.

    Well that was my curse… until I turned about 40….People don’t take you seriously….

  132. I am a mature person in age and I follow Archie not only for his talent but for the person he is. He is one of my role model even at his young age of 18 y/o soon to be 19. He has so many traits that I try or trying to emulate in my every day life. Happy, positive, respectful, down to earth, hard working, religious, loves family ( parents, brother and sisters, and relatives) smiles a lot, etc., etc., etc. but not singing – it’s impossible for me ha ha ha Archie love ya.

  133. If you look at some of the songs, such as “Fields of Gold” and “the Riddle” that David has inserted into his sets lately, I think you are seeing what we will likely see more of in coming albums– the real David Archuleta.

    Does anyone have a good link to “the Riddle”?

  134. Archie’s Zero Gravity in Cleveland, Ohio
    sounds like the crowd was enjoying it.

    I enjoyed it too. He is so damn exuberant when he sings this song.

  135. undercooked,

    Don’t worry about LKL appearance. It was already taped and we got an impression that he didn’t get interviewed but only sang. It is a wonderful promo for Archie especially a heavy program that millions of adults watch every night. Archie also tweeted about the taping and we all felt a positive vibe from the tweet.

  136. Thanks ghl. That’s good news. LKL does have a large audience, so I’m glad it’s a positive appearance for Archie.

  137. Or maybe you meant to say, except for ADAM

    LOL, so true Kamar, I think that was left out!

  138. Told that I think it has hurt his career, he responds:

    ‘Oh yeah?’  Archuleta says. ‘I guess that’s part of being an artist. You just get to choose what you show the people and what you show them in a performance and stuff like that. That’s part of being an artist ‘“ you show what’ ¦.

    I think David understands what being an musician/artist/entertainer means, that every musician/artist/entertainer makes choices about what to present and how and that those choices express them and that that’s what’s valuable about artists, and that it’s next to impossible to predict how the audience is going to respond to what you do because, for one thing, there are lots of audiences — all different.

    Seems to me he expressed those tough concepts pretty clearly, actually.

    I’m sure his own experience has acquainted him pretty well with the issue of making choices as a singer and performer!

  139. I get the feeling Archie may have been picked on when he was young and we all know Adam was.

    Actually, from what David has said, he was never picked on. He was a quiet kid, who pretty much went under the radar until he sang. When he sang, everyone would turn around and go “wow”! He also had lots of friends.

    If you see videos of him in Junior high (someone posted one of him at a talent show), girls were already screaming for him.

    FWIW, Utah is very different from other places. We lived in Ohio, Illinois, and Pennsylvania a good portion of my oldest son’s life. We moved here when he was in 9th grade. If you go over to my high school, you will see a great majority of the kids who are more like David. One day after someone was talking about David’s perceived “imaturity”, I was noticing that when I was over there. The kids respect and even elect kids for offices who are like David.

  140. ^^^ Yeah, I’ve heard that sort of thing before about David’s experiences in a school setting. Sorta makes me want to move to Utah, where a person’s character still seems to be something that is honored.

    And when I tell my girls how the school dances seem to work there (based on what I’ve gleaned from being David’s fan) they want to move there too.

    Now, we just need to work on my husband.

  141. “I get the feeling Archie may have been picked on when he was young and we all know Adam was.”

    I wanted to add that I feel for anyone who was picked on in school — I suspect that Adam is all the stronger for it, but that doesn’t excuse the bullying behavior. It’s really too bad that it happens at all and, according to my girls, it happens even when schools try to enforce strict policies.

    Sad world in ways, isn’t it?

  142. “and that guy who won ‘Star Search’  years ago”

    Who is this that the article is referring to?

  143. Whoever posted this link, Archie and this song The Riddle in KC . . . wow that’s lovely. There’s something richer in his voice now then when he was on the show. And he looks very happy.

  144. ‘and that guy who won ‘Star Search’  years ago’ 

    Would I be dating myself if I thought he was referring to Sam Harris? At least that’s what I thought when I read the article. I must say I never watched the newer version of Star Search, so it could be someone else.

  145. OMG. I’m just stepping into this post for the first time since yesterday. There ARE GOING TO BE BANNINGS Just watch for it.

    EDIT: Many of you are now in moderation. Some of you are long-time posters. I’m pretty sick of moderating these thread over and over again for the exact same sh*t. Sorry peeps, at this point, I felt I had no other choice.
