Even after ‘Idol,’ Pickler still singing her ‘little song’ – Dolly Parton. Loretta Lynn. Tammy Wynette. Patsy Cline. Kitty Wells. Kellie Picker grew up in North Carolina listening to those classic women of country music.

American Idol season ’10 winner croons to cupcakery customers, Bucknell students – DeWyze’s advice to aspiring musicians is to perform in public as much as possible. His philosophy was evident Friday afternoon when he played several songs at Stay Sweet Cupcakery on Market Street. The appearance came hours before he performed a private concert for Bucknell University students in Lewisburg. “Just play out as frequent as possible, be it a coffee shop or a large stage,” he said. “People seeing you is important. Get on as many stages as you can.” Fans at the shop were introduced to a live performance of “Who Would Have Known,” a track written for his wife that will appear in his upcoming second major-label album. The yet untitled album will be released in the next few months, he said. – Read more at

What Intimidates Ryan Seacrest on ‘American Idol’? – “I am giddy with excitement for us to do our live shows because it is what our program is about. It is those moments that are spontaneous, you don’t plan, and are unvarnished and raw,” he says. In other words, look for explosive debates from the diverse judging panel, which already has its fair share of rumored feuds. “I think you’ll see some serious, heated disagreements as the season goes on. I think that happens when you have strong personalities, whose job is to judge and give their perspective.” – Read more at

‘Idol’ Host Ryan Seacrest Defends Nicki Minaj & Controversial Contestant Zoanette – When the public does start deciding, there’s one contestant whose fate is going to be very precarious: Miss Controversy herself, Zoanette Johnson. From her eccentric audition performance of “The Star Spangled Banner” to her Las Vegas rendition of “The Circle of Life” from The Lion King, Zoanette has been turning heads all season and causing many fans to wonder what the judges see in her confounding stage presence. Seacrest, however, sees why Zoanette is still around. “My take is that [her performance] was full of volume from the hair to the voice, and I didn’t forget about it,” he says. “The more you see her, she’s actually like this den mother with the contestants. They all hang out with her.” – Read more at
