Kris Allen and Adam Lambert to Appear at Annual Ford Day

Kris Allen and Adam Lambert perform in Providence RI with the American Idols Live tour 09/13

Like Idols before them (David Cook and David Archuleta appeared last year), Kris Allen and   Adam Lambert are set to appear at the annual Ford Motor Company Day on Friday September 18.

Adam and Kris will perform beginning at 12: 3o pm, and if we’re lucky, there will be video available post-event. Here’s hoping!

As soon as Kris finishes, he’s off to Boston, MA for the Mix 104.1 End of Summer Bash taking place at the Colonnade Hotel on Saturday September 19.   He’ll be appearing with David Gray.   It’s one of those call in to win it deals, so if you’re trying…good luck!

The Top 10 Idols wind up their American Idols Live tour in Manchester, New Hampshire, Tuesday September 14.

  1. Love that picture, MJ, you got a good one there! I love this idea of their last concert together being just the two of them. Their friendship has been such a great story this year and it almost seems like this will be their graduation ceremony before flying the nest and leaving the AI bubble.

    Wish both of them nothing but the best of luck and success.

    (I’m feeling surprisingly nostalgic and not a little sentimental about the AI tour ending, but happy to see them get going on their futures.)

  2. Mm, why was Adam looking so longingly at kris in that pic? Is kris’ “single” getting a new thread?

  3. http://www.cec.ford.com/

    Link to the location…

    Apparently the luncheon seats approximately 800…so it should be fairly intimate and I think that may preclude WLL. I am betting that Adam sings some of his more ballady type stuff….The accompaniment will be pretty limited too, I imagine.

    Where have you been? Don’t you know there’s a whole industry based on pictures of Adam looking at Kris longingly and Kris looking at Adam longingly?? There are whole corporations based on the hugs they gave each on the show, the dance they do at the end of DSB and a myriad of other interactions they have?

    It’s called KRADAM…maybe you’ve heard of it…LOL

  5. I believe last year that Archuleta had a pianist accompanying him. Cook accompanied himself on guitar. This isn’t anything close to a big production. They shouldn’t even need it.

  6. Ah MJ

    There’s that photograph again! For all I know, you’re a professional and you sell your work all the time. But, if you aren’t, you should be selling this one and the Ally/Adam shot as well. If the file is big enough (not hard these days) and a very little editing … music magazines, AI, start or add to a portfolio for Getty or …

    I mean, seriously, now …

    and the lighting is near on perfect and …

    captures something essence about each individually and something about the two of them together …

    geez I must leave this thread now. But I’m stealing the photo for my own personal file … no resale intended.

  7. CindyM, you crack me up. Anyway, if there’s no band playing for them, my hunch is they will both do slow to mid-tempo songs. They’ll be performing around lunch time so it’s more pleasant to hear soft/acoustic songs after lunch.

  8. Hahaha CindyM,
    Why do you make me LOL? Indeed there is a whole industry. There was a post at gossip candy about 3 days ago titled “WANT” as an example of what you’e talking about. I must confess it was too appropriate. Here you go!

    LMAO…I just got this picture in my head of a Ford executive sitting at his lunch table, taking a bite of his convention chicken and choking on it as Adam sings “I’m gonna give you every inch of my love” while banging his hand against his thigh…LOLOL That would be PRICELESS!!

    Thanks VanJess, those two are so photogenic aren’t they?? Nice to get some equal-opportunity longing there :)

  11. Oh dear, why must love and appreciation get turned into longing. I guess it’s funny as long as it doesn’t obscure the real point. (I am far too serious today. Time for a cup of tea.)

    OK, really going now.

    You may be on to something here, CindyM. Perhaps Kris & Adam should take out a copyright on the term Kradam and any joint images connected to them. Every little bit of cash helps. LOL

  13. I’m so ready for the umbilical cord between these two to be cut it’s not even funny. Medical science can separate Siamese twins so surely someone can disconnect these two. Time to move on to their independent projects.

    Have to be honest, I totally agree. I love their friendship, but I’m ready for them to get their careers flying!

  15. I dont like that pic

    I’m so ready for the umbilical cord between these two to be cut it’s not even funny. Medical science can separate Siamese twins so surely someone can disconnect these two. Time to move on to their independent projects.

    LMAO!!!!!!!!!!! :P

  16. OK, the important questions:

    1. What will Adam wear? Which hair? Eye makeup? And any interesting handgear this time?

    2. What will they perform? Last year the David’s did three songs each, so I guess it will be the same this year. But which 3 songs?

    3. Will Kris perform his new single? I doubt it but it would be nice to hear something new.

    My bet is there will be no new songs but I would love to be surprised.

    Adam – I expect – Mad World, Starlight and Bowie.
    What I would love to see him do: “Quiet Desperation”, “I Make You Crazy”, and Pet Shop Boys – Love Etc. (Adamized)

    Kris – I expect – Heartless, ATTTIHD, Bright Lights
    What I would love to see him do: ANS, Bright Lights, his new single

  17. I agree they will sing the more low-key ‘portable’ songs.

    I hope there is video from someone attending.

    The link says they had to make it exclusive for Adcraft members only due to the unusually high demand for event tickets. If I was in detroit I would pay the $60 membership fee even though I am not in advertising.

  18. LOL CindyM’s comment on Adam giving “every inch of his love” during lunch. It made me think of his pelvic move on Life on Mars “it’s the freakiest show.”

  19. LOL newfan.can’t keep away can u?me either :(

    hi ilovekrisallen39!:) school was gr8 like fun nothing WRONG with it but I’m kinds already ready 4 school to end…:D

  20. Hi Luv,

    we all needs a little time travel, sometimes … forward and backward

  21. And Luv,

    half of the posters + MJ will probably yell at me for giving you this, but, if you haven’t already seen it, this will improve your day.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gm6q0UkWuAQ

    Me thinks you can handle it but I hope that nobody plays it for the Ford people. They might ask to have this last year’s sponsorship money returned to them.

  22. I believe last year that Archuleta had a pianist accompanying him. Cook accompanied himself on guitar. This isn’t anything close to a big production. They shouldn’t even need it.

    Who cares! LOL. ADAM will be there. Too bad the event is not open to the general public. Appreciate KRADAM. ;-)

  23. Yeah, Kradam ends this week. I wonder how Kris will do without his more popular sidekick in tow?

  24. I believe last year that Archuleta had a pianist accompanying him. Cook accompanied himself on guitar. This isn’t anything close to a big production. They shouldn’t even need it.

    Kris can easily accompany himself. IMO he is at his best when it is just Kris and his guitar/piano. No band.

    And I except to see Adam with a pianist or TIm again for this one. But Adam with or without an accompanist would be just fine with me. Hope we get video!! And, maybe Adam will do the whole Life on Mars or something new. Really hope we get video!!

    ATTENTION KRIS FANS!

    Already covered in the headline thread.

  26. richie10

    I think, in reality, forget the hoopla, they really kind of need each other, to go forward, stay grounded and give/take some honest opinions.

    sunkissedtrampoline
    I didn’t read it in the headlines thread … so you broke the news to me … and it’s great news too. I envy the people who will get to be there.

  27. I’M sure Kris well do fine without Adam. Maybe Adam well be lost without Kris, look at how Adam is looking at Kris in the picture MJ took.

  28. Well I hope we get some video from this, and yeah, will be ballad-y and/or stipped down versions of songs, which I love hearing from Adam and Kris, so win! I enjoyed when Adam did a stripped down version of Starlight, he might do that again here. Kris will of course do a stripped down Heartless and I will love that! (because I am not fan of the bandzilla’d version). Kris will probably do ANS, Adam Mad World. But the third choice for each? hmmm. I would think that Adam would want to do a more uptempo song if he did SL and MW, and no, I don’t think it will be WLL, so hmmm.

    But poor Kris, he’s been so sick that he’s had to miss a concert. He still sounds pretty crappy when speaking. His voice sounds hoarse and like he’s stuffed up in mj’s video from last night. And to have the tour end the 15th and then do this Friday and then perform in Boston the very next day. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, OUCH! It’s not just the schedule itself, which is kind of tough, but doing so while still being/getting over being sick…not fun. Best to Kris and hope he gets better soon.

    Oh and yeah,

    Hhmm ‘ ¦ how about winding up the tour on Tuesday, September 15th?

    this confused me when I read it! I am getting a slow start to my day so my brain was like ‘hunh?’ for bit.

  29. I’M sure Kris well do fine without Adam. Maybe Adam well be lost without Kris, look at how Adam is looking at Kris in the picture MJ took.

    ilovekrisallen, click on the candy link supplied above and you will find a photo of Kris looking equally longingly at Adam taken a few moments after the one above.

    I think these two do have a close friendship and I hope it doesn’t end with the end of the tour. I strongly doubt there is or ever has been anything deeper than a “bro-mance” on either’s part. So here’s to the continuation of a beautiful friendship, whether or not its called “Kradam” ever again!

  30. Yeah I know Kris looks at Adam like that to. But I really think they’ll do fine without each other. And they’ll at least see each other on Friday. And am sure there looking forward to seeing there family and friends again. And also getting to do more on there album’s.

  31. There are ohhhh, so many things that I will miss when the tour is over…

    It’s called KRADAM

    This is NOT one of them….

  32. I’m so ready for the umbilical cord between these two to be cut it’s not even funny. Medical science can separate Siamese twins so surely someone can disconnect these two. Time to move on to their independent projects.

    I’ll drink to that. Nothing would make me happier.

  33. I hope Adam sings a stripped down version of “Starlight,” but without the “Caribbean accompaniment” he had on GMA. My iPod would greatly appreciate it.

  34. Lord, I hope they both lose their tour “costumes.” So sick of all of them! :-)

    I’ll drink to that. Nothing would make me happier.

    Ditto! Couldn’t wait for them to go seperate way. No more Kradam, Adison nor Kradison. As much as I love seeing the three of them together, but it’s time to move on.

  36. So Kris might sing his new single here? or would he save that for the next day at the radio sponsored thing in Boston? Hmm. My brain is still so muzzy today, so wouldn’t Kris save his debut of his single for the radio sponsored event the next day, give them exclusive rights? Or would he figure this event wouldn’t really matter/count to that? And doing his single at this event gives him a chance to test it out before a small live audience before rolling it out the next day?

    Like I said, muzzy brain is being lazy and looking for others to be smarter for it.

    Well harumpf, I’ll miss the Kradam friendship. I think they were good friends to each other through the craziness of the AI experience, and that’s a good thing, imho. And I think that it’s going to get only crazier for each outside of the show and starting the pushes for their own careers and all the publicity of that. It’s nice to have people you connect to, can respect, who will be honest with you and know don’t want anything from you. That’s hard for anyone, but especially in show buisness. So I will enjoy this last show of AI Kradam and hope they remain friends after it. Real friendships are, I think, precious things and should be valued as such. So while of course they won’t be as close of friends any more, I hope they maintain a real friendship. I mean how cute was the recent David Cook LA show when all his former AI buddies went there? That was pretty darn cute! And I hope that Kris and Adam remains friends enough for that level of interaction.

  37. I guess I don’t get what bothers folks about their relationship, regardless of how close – or not close – it is. They are fine with it so what it the problem? Show business is a very, very, tough business full of twists and turns and rejections at every corner. It would be great to have someone who understands what the other is going through to talk with or just kid around with. I think that’s what made these guys so close in the first place.

    I don’t want them to sing together, tour together or even appear together – professionally they do need to go their seperate ways. But, no, I don’t want anyone to have to end a friendship, especially one that seems as genuine as theirs.

  38. I’M sure Kris well do fine without Adam. Maybe Adam well be lost without Kris, look at how Adam is looking at Kris in the picture MJ took.

    These looks are taken out of context and should never be taken seriously as lust or anything else. Please. Adam already has experience in the business but Kris doesn’t. Also Kris is very unassuming and shy and will have lots more trouble making himself known to the world. He’s gonna need a lot of work in that area.

  39. Yeah, Kradam ends this week. I wonder how Kris will do without his more popular sidekick in tow?

    he’s probably estatic to ditch sparkly behind…hard juggling a wife and adam at the same time.

  40. That’s the way I feel too. I think it’s great that there such great friend’s. And I hope they stay really close. But am also glad that they’ll be able to do things on there owe also. And am sure they’ll stay in touch. Aren’t there families really close also?

  41. And who says they Kris and Adam can’t move on, work on their own seperately and still be as close. Both of them are business conscious and serious about their music careers and would not let their friendship be a hindrance to the success of their careers.
    I strongly believe they will even be more close than now after the tour because they will be away from crazy kradam fans who read too much into their every move. That is if the crazy paparazzi don’t take it up. Some of them are kradam shippers too.

  42. I definitely am suffering from tour overload, Kradam, Kradison, over viewed wardrobe, silly interviews, obnoxious fans, silly tweets and nasty twats, tin hats, fan fic, and the AI bubble.

    I’m also glad that Kris and Adam have two different recording companies and that their paths aren’t going to cross much in the future, at least professionally. No more shared TV spots, interviews, radio gigs, photo shoots….now we can enjoy our fav without having to be on our best behavior towards the other one…every man and women for themselves, no more Ms or Mr nice guy.

    We’ve been involved with the tour for 10 weeks, here at MJs, and in 10 weeks we should have new albums and new careers, and 10 weeks after than it is full steam ahead for season 9 of Idols. How time does fly.

    So for Kradam, Friday will be the day of professional parting. Adam will no longer be under the AI bubble….I am sure that all future gigs will be through RCA. Kris, though, will be the AI meat and potatoes guy until he looses his crown next May so I am sure he will pop up now and again on AI endorsed sideshows gigs.

  43. And am sure they’ll stay in touch. Aren’t there families really close also?

    Yes, several of the family members of both Kris and Adam have mentioned the families’ closeness and that they have gotten together socially on occasion.

  44. Lord, I hope they both lose their tour ‘costumes.’  So sick of all of them!

    What exactly is Kris’s tour costume?? Just asking….

  45. Boy I was jut joking about the way Adam was looking at Kris I wasn’t serious. I know that Adam is great. And god forbade people even try to make a joke about Adam without getting jumb on. Maybe such am more of an Kris fan then an Adam. I’ll just go back to just not saying anything at all and just go back to lurking.

  46. Yeah, Kradam ends this week. I wonder how Kris will do without his more popular sidekick in tow?

    he’s probably estatic to ditch sparkly behind’ ¦hard juggling a wife and adam at the same time.

    Please don’t do so because of my comments. I wasn’t directing anything at you really, just using your original comment as a jumping off (on in) point. Stay in the discussion please.

  49. I don’t want them to sing together, tour together or even appear together ‘“ professionally they do need to go their seperate ways. But, no, I don’t want anyone to have to end a friendship, especially one that seems as genuine as theirs.

    This is what I mean when I say I want KRADAM to end. I don’t want their friendship to end, not at all. I really don’t think it will. They both seem to have many long-time friends who’ve stuck with them through thick and thin and these two have shared an experience together that no one else can understand.

    I’m looking for the professional “attached-at-the-hips” reputation to end and for both these guys to shine on their own.

  50. Kradam isn’t going to go away, at least not on its most important basis, which is the friendship between Kris and Adam. The two seem to depend on each other to stay grounded and they obviously love each other in some shape or fashion. What’s wrong with that? Now, they will go their separate ways professionally, but they will likely remain very close friends, and to me, that’s a good thing. Likewise, both guys will probably remain close to their “little sister” Allison. Again, that friendship is a good thing, not something that should be tossed aside simply because they are starting their solo careers.

    The only thing that should change is that Kradam will fade from the public eye and fans will eventually stop writing so much slash fiction about the pairing. But hopefully the private Kradam and Kradison friendships remain strong for years and years to come.

    As for this actual Ford show, I’m hoping Kris will debut his single. There seems to be some (unsubstantiated, as far as I can see) thought going around the internet that it may drop tomorrow — and if it does, well then, no reason for him not to perform it at this event — and then at the End of Summer party he’s doing in Boston this weekend.

    I’m looking forward to hearing NEW music from these guys. I bet Adam and Kris are at least a little tired of singing the same five songs every night as well. I wouldn’t be surprised if, once they go out on their own tour, none of the songs from the AI tour make it into their sets!

  51. Lord, I hope they both lose their tour ‘costumes.’  So sick of all of them!

    I agree for Adam, but what does Kris wear that’s an outfit from the show? That black shirt, sure it could be argued that it is. But it’s just a black button down shirt with a black Union Jack pattern in back, not really that fancy. But all he’ll do is just wear a different coloured plaid shirt to this gig, because that’s who he is. But yeah, I would be okay with not seeing that yellow one for a while. At least get NEW plaid for him to be photographed in.

    Adam on the other hand will no doubt be wearing something different from the tour. I liked his outfit for GMA and though I am a well known hater of his Elvis look, that day was one of the rare exceptions where I liked it. Though not enough to not prefer his more Emo hair. But if he has to do an Elvis look that day, hope it works as well with his outfit as the GMA gig.

  52. So for Kradam, Friday will be the day of professional parting. Adam will no longer be under the AI bubble

    Yay! So excited and so very kerred.

  53. richie10,
    When was the last time you saw Kris and Adam do any interview together? Kris doesn’t need Adam near him to make himself known to the world. I prefer him far away from Adam when it comes to business and their music, though I love them being good friends.
    What is the importance of having managers PR persons and stuff?
    Kris has growm so much on his own on this tour without Adam beside him during interviews and they are on different labels now. I think Kris will have no trouble at all making himself known to the world at all, his music will do that for him. We have lots of artists like him who have done so without being too out there and just being who they are. Kris has so far succeeded being himself!

    Totally understand your sentiments iloveka39. So many times it is really hard to make tongue in cheek comments or be a bit snarky or give an ironic twist to the written word. Many, many sentiments are taken by some total literally with or without the use of smileys or “jk”, etc.

    I, for one, totally got your comment and knew exactly what you were saying and your intent. So, never fear, your comments make me smile….big time!

  55. Finally. I can’t wait for Kris to get one layer outside of the Idol bubble so I can start following him again. The tour did not interest me at all this year nor any interviews related to it.

  56. Yeah Am just in one of my moods today. And am afraid I just let it get the best of me. Just missing my huband and not feel so good. I know for the most part everyone is really fantasic here. I shouldn’t have let it get to me. Thanks for the kind words.

  57. ilovekrisallen39, don’t EVER stop posting. You are one of my favorite Kris fans here :)

  58. Since this will be Kradam’s last dance as it were – Kris should be Adam’s accompanist.

    {{{Hug}}}

    Hope you feel better soon, and that hubby comes home safely.

  60. For me, for you, for us (where is Randy and his vocabulary when you need him) I honestly feel that the Kradam thing took on a life that no one really envisioned. From a couple of innocent comments, and a nice Bromance the whole thing just blew itself out of wack. IMHO I don’t think anyone wants to see Adam and Kris (and Ali, too) loose their friendship and “love” for each other. I just think that people want them to succeed or fail on their own merits.

    If I’m uncomfortable hearing an interviewer mention the other half of the “team” during an interview how must the boys feel. Right now they are worried to death about what the next 10 weeks will hold and what will happen after their albums drop. As much as they like each other they can’t be worrying about each other or that stress on top of their own would kill them.

    For the next 6 months these guys have to be the most celf-centered, egotistical bitches who are all about themselves and their work and their future. That is how life is….if you want to succeed in the dog eat dog (I hate that phrase) world of entertainment than they have to put themselves and their careers front and center. That may sound harsh but if they don’t they will get trampled on and their pieces left for someone else to pick up.

    Once they have found a nice firm toe hold then they can take the time to breathe and to re-establish the friendships that they hold near and dear. Until then…its full steam ahead and to each his own.

  61. His just gone for three weeks. But when am not feeling good,I just want him here with me.But am still going to post so don’t worry. Am just feeling sorry for myself right now. But am really looking forward to these last two shows. And to see how Adam Allison’s and Kris albums well be like.

  62. I definitely am suffering from tour overload, Kradam, Kradison, over viewed wardrobe, silly interviews, obnoxious fans, silly tweets and nasty twats, tin hats, fan fic, and the AI bubble.

    I hear you Tess and strongly agree.

    I have been backing away this weekend and don’t quite know where to land in my Adam fantardness. I will lurk here to see what MJ posts about these Idols but not sure how much I will post. Just not interested or know anything about any other Season of Idol and will not be watching Season 9 except when one of Season 8s Idols is on to perform.

    10 weeks seems like a very long time until albums are dropped and things gear up again. I hope there will be a lot of news and I will be keeping up with Adam on Twitter as long as he keeps it up and going.

  63. There is no greater refuge than a friend.

    Hope they are as close as they seem. Because they are about to be in the few get out alive, black hole, shark pit crazyland. Full of people who want to use them. Or loved ones who don’t really understand why they’ve changed. Or can’t be there, ever, not ever. Never at all. And can’t keep a promise, even though they really want to, because it’s so essential that they show up somewhere else.

    Plus they’ll have tens of thousands of technologically wired devotees begging for more and more and more.

    And how lucky they are to have someone who not only understands, but wants nothing from them. Has no agenda. Or resentment. Except to be there for the other. And on top of that can give good musical feedback. Just having someone like that to text in the wee hours would make life bearable. Or at least seem human and a little bit real. So hope their friendship is deep and real and for always.

  64. ilovekrisallen39

    Sorry for being so snarky. I just really hate Kradam with a passion. I’ve always felt that a lot of Kris’s popularity was due to the whole Kradam thing and maybe even got him the win with all the split votes but that’s history now. This week it will be all over and I can follow Adam’s career without having to read silly stuff about the looks they give each other and other stupid stuff. Sorry, I just really hate all that crap and am glad it’s ending. I like Kris a lot as a person and hope he has great success in the music business.

  65. So I just read through this whole thread and the funniest thing here is this from CindyM:

    “LMAO’ ¦I just got this picture in my head of a Ford executive sitting at his lunch table, taking a bite of his convention chicken and choking on it as Adam sings ‘I’m gonna give you every inch of my love’  while banging his hand against his thigh’ ¦LOLOL That would be PRICELESS!!”

    Oh yeah!! Because, yes, I could not help myself, I thought of that too, or something close to it. Heh!! But Adam is a smart man. He’ll go the GMA route and wow everyone with some control over that dangerous falsetto of his.

    This whole discussion over Kris and Adam and the Word I Refuse to Type, I just have to say I think these guys are great friends, Yay. the media had a field day and some of us online (not necessarily here) helped fuel that little fire. I hope they remain friends. While they do not need each other musically, friendship is nothing but a good thing if it’s real. As Tess says, it is a dog eat dog world in the entertainment industry and I think Adam is pretty much genetically designed to deal with it (see above posted video by New Fan). Kris? I just don’t know. I hope so.

    There is no greater refuge than a friend. etc etc…..

    Yes! You put it much better than I did, but that’s what I’m talking about!

    There is no greater refuge than a friend.

    Hope they are as close as they seem. Because they are about to be in the few get out alive, black hole, shark pit crazyland. Full of people who want to use them. Or loved ones who don’t really understand why they’ve changed. Or can’t be there, ever, not ever. Never at all. And can’t keep a promise, even though they really want to, because it’s so essential that they show up somewhere else.

    Plus they’ll have tens of thousands of technologically wired devotees begging for more and more and more.

    And how lucky they are to have someone who not only understands, but wants nothing from them. Has no agenda. Or resentment. Except to be there for the other. And on top of that can give good musical feedback. Just having someone like that to text in the wee hours would make life bearable. Or at least seem human and a little bit real. So hope their friendship is deep and real and for always.

    FHS – I agree and have posted several times about how the people that are in their lives have no freaking clue what is about to happen. If they haven’t seen them much this year – well look out they won’t be for quite a while and if the international stuff happens quickly it will be much worse for those people then.

    I have family and friends in the entertainment business and have seen what this can do. Few relationships remain the same.

    Adam, Kris and Allison hopefully will remain in close contact as no one else they know will be experiencing the same thing all at the same time. They will need that support to face what is ahead. Adam will have his Mom working for him which is good because they seem to be very close and they will experience this together.

    This can be the best thing to happen to them and the worse thing all at the same time – it all depends on how strong their friends and loved ones are -and they will need to be really strong.

  68. One year after “the Davids” left the AI stage, DC at least is routinely asked questions about Archie. Some “one” even cared enough about “the Davids” that they staged a huge overseas concert featuring the two of them. And these two never appeared any where as close as Adam and Kris in friendship.

    I doubt ‘Kradam” will disappear overnight. I am sure each will be asked about the other for some time to come. I would not be surprised if the questions were answered as I think they will stay in touch with each other. They never seemed to care before what the public thought of their relationship – why should they start now.

    I prefer him far away from Adam when it comes to business and their music,

    Vanjess, Kris is already gone on record as saying he and Adam discuss their various album work with each other, so they at least use each other for feedback.

    That is how life is’ ¦.if you want to succeed in the dog eat dog (I hate that phrase) world of entertainment than they have to put themselves and their careers front and center. That may sound harsh but if they don’t they will get trampled on and their pieces left for someone else to pick up.

    Yes, it is a very dog eat dog kind of business, but one in which friendships are good to have. I think folks who have a great group of friends who understand the trials and tribulations of the industry (the members of The Rat Pack, Ben Affleck & Matt Damon, Beyonce are some examples that come to mind) tend to stay more grounded than those who cut themselves off from real relationships with their friends and family (Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley, etc)

  69. “I have been backing away this weekend and don’t quite know where to land in my Adam fantardness. I will lurk here to see what MJ posts about these Idols but not sure how much I will post. ”

    Ah, adamland, it is something I too have been trying to figure out. I want information about Adam, and I like the people on this board. I think that MJ will post Adam news on this site and there will be those of us here who want to discuss it, just like today. I just don’t think it will take up quite as much time because the tour will be over. Thank God.

  70. The two Davids did just fine at staying friends, and with the turn-out for Cook’s LA concert, I think we can safely say that a whole bunch of the season 7 alums are still friends.

    The cool thing about most of the season 8 kids is that they, too, seem like regular folks who will be unlikely to let any of the craziness get to them. Maybe a year from now, somebody will be all over the tabloids for his love life and somebody else’s dad will get arrested for getting a “massage” at a sleazy parlor, somebody else will be joining an established band as their new front singer, somebody else will take a role in a touring Broadway musical, somebody else will be playing coffeehouses and frozen yogurt stores while their BFF is in arenas, somebody else (or two or three of them) will be pushing indie albums or headlining for David Foster, and a couple more will be guest-starring on American Nobody. If that could all happen to the S7 crowd and they remained friends, I don’t see why the S8 ones can’t, too.

  71. Had a cortisone shot today for my shoulder. In pain. Just wanted to say that, as with the David’s, Kris and Adam will do just fine APART. I enjoyed Kradam, b/c they are friends and are so different from each other, but both have so much to offer. The next few months will be very fun to watch. I am Tour’ed out. ;)

    I still can’t win passes to see Kris in Boston, sob, BUT I did win tickets to see U2 in Foxboro–VIP seats!–so I can’t complain.

    Ciao for tonight.

  72. One more concert to go! It’s been a great summer, but I can’t wait to see what is next for the idols!!!!

  73. That picture really favors Kris, the perspective makes him look taller.

    I hope we do get some videos from the event, probably we’ll get the standard songs, but as long as they have new wardrobe and a different setting, it is gonna be really refreshing.

    I did win tickets to see U2 in Foxboro’“VIP seats!

    OMG suebrody, you’re so, so lucky! You’re right, you can’t complain when you can see the best band in the world with VIP seats :)! BTW, I hope the pain goes away soon.

  74. That picture really favors Kris, the perspective makes him look taller.

    You are so right (after taking a second look at it). Although the first time I saw the pic I saw Adam’s expression and appreciation of Kris’ talent. They both look handsome!!

    And Luv,

    half of the posters + MJ will probably yell at me for giving you this, but, if you haven’t already seen it, this will improve your day.

    loved it!!!!

  77. I wish them both the best with their careers. I loved Adam’s Elvis look!

  78. Kris and Adam haven’t really done to many joint interviews since shortly after the show ended. They seem to switch them up in the tour press and the last appearance they had together was GMA. I think for the online fans kradam seems much more prevelant in their careers than it really is. I haven’t noticed the mainstream media pushing the “bromance”.

    I think when the tour ends they will keep in contact because I truly believe they’ve built a genuine friendship. Neither Adam nor Kris seem capable of such clear deception as to fake their bond all these months. I don’t think Kradam, within the context of that particular fanbase is going anywhere anytime soon. Their friendship is inspiring to many people. Proof that you can find common bonds even when seemingly so different.

    It will be interesting to see, once the tour is over and they are separate, how many kradam fans remain loyal to them as a pair. I started out a kradison fan while watching the show. Voted equally for all three thoughtout the process and then finale night didn’t vote at all because I couldn’t pick one over the other. Over the course of the tour I’ve clearly chosen a favorite and will buy his CD but probably not the other ones because his style of music really isn’t my thing. I’m still inspired by their friendship but no longer feel I have to support both in order to support my favorite.

  79. just wondering what they will sing now that the tour band has departed? Where is this Ford Company Day?
