  1. I wasn’t paying attention in prior years. Have the top Idol finishers always done all these promotional events? The labels PR firms really seem to be doing an amazing job with promoting Adam, Kris and Allison at events (and TV) this year. I don’t remember, as a casual viewer, noticing all this in previous years.

  2. I wasn’t paying attention in prior years. Have the top Idol finishers always done all these promotional events?

    Yes.

    Adam had had OTT media attention, but other than that, the gigs and TV shows are fairly standard fare.

    cmjoyceLooking amazing!!! http://twitpic.com/t51eg

    3 minutes ago from Echofon @yendiders we are hearing yes!

    14 minutes ago from Echofon in reply to yendiders First Single: whataya want from me. Thoughts?

    24 minutes ago from Echofon RT @insomniac19: He must be playing solo. Will have more details once he comes in the press room.

    about 1 hour ago from Echofon in reply to insomniac19 Lambert is coming to the press room. Anyone have good questions?

    about 1 hour ago from Echofon The buzz is Adam Lambert will close!

  4. @HunterPR Backstage at Z100’s JIngle Ball, can’t wait to see Taylor Swift and Adam Lambert perform!

  5. cant believe Jordin has to perform No Air with beiber’ ¦ BLECH

    I’ll see your blech and raise you an ugh.

  6. maybe when they say he will “close”, it means he will come out and say good nite. i hope he performs..im trying not to get my hopes up!!!

  7. @jambajim The paparazzi just had a collective orgasm thanks to Adam Lambert entering the press room. Bam!! They are all now pregnant w/ Glambabies.

    LOL o adam they media loves u

  8. Maybe the special surprise is a special performance by usher? Why else would he be there? And yes, adam is probably the closing MC.

  9. Maybe Adam is there is to hold Usher’s coat while he performs. Just kidding!

    It seems to me that while Adam was holding court with the press, they might’ve asked what he was doing there. So everyone didn’t have to spend all night speculating instead of paying attention to the actual performers.

  10. here’s a really cool tweet from the twitter party:

    @Literarynut John mayer and kris need to duet like now

    coolness!

  11. Maybe the special surprise is a special performance by usher? Why else would he be there? And yes, adam is probably the closing MC.

    Usher is totally going to do a duet with Justin, you know that is going to happen.

    And guess Adam will introduce the last act. That’s not at all lame. But hey, if it gets him more Z100 love, than it’s worth it. I’ve decided WWFM spins are the only thing I care about coming out of these things.

  12. I don’t think I have ever seen a bad pic of Adam …. he’s a photographers dream.

  13. The buzz is Adam Lambert will close!

    Wishful thinking by the attendees, I’d say, considering his entire band is in LA right now!

    Girl, thank you.
    They pronounced her name right, finally.

  15. The buzz is Adam Lambert will close!

    This isn’t to the person who posted that Tweet about the Adam closing buzz thing. But I think someone’s “buzz,” is really from being buzzed and someone put drugs in their weed. Adam’s isn’t closing from Taylor Swift. That’s beyond crazy talk to ‘put the crack pipe down now,’ talk.

  16. …that’s beyond crazy talk to ‘put the crack pipe down now,’ talk.

    True, lay that wackytabacky down now. lol

  17. @cmjoyce: Adam Lambert's NYE Resolution: To live in the moment. More to come on Monday @popstardotcom.

    YES! Let’s just all live in the moment!

    Now that’s funny! :) I wonder what the tweets will be like NYE with free booze flowing!

    Maybe an a Capella winter song…(non-Christmas) like Winter Wonderland or something. I’m sure he would be beautiful singing Silent Night…

  20. I am loving all the pics of Kris from this show. They’re really good.

    Precisely!

  22. if adam does sing a song, it wont be christmas-hes said “im jewish” lol when asked about christmas songs

  23. @cmjoyce: Adam Lambert's NYE Resolution: To live in the moment. More to come on Monday @popstardotcom.

    Careful with that livin’ in the moment thing Adam – just remember FYE ;)

  24. Maybe an a Capella winter song’ ¦(non-Christmas) like Winter Wonderland or something. I’m sure he would be beautiful singing Silent Night’ ¦

    Well he would be beautiful singing Silent Night, but its certainly not a winter/non-Xmas song.

  25. I just got my tickets for Adam’s concert on New Years Eve. I have to travel from Sacramento area but it will be well worth it. It is my xmas present.

    Also, I just spoke to our radio station in Sacramento, Top 40, very popular radio station, and they are adding Adam as of tomorrow. I talked to the producer today and he said tomorrow was the day so I could start requesting. I have nicely been talking to him for about a month and he finally said, hey good news, I am adding Adam as of tomorrow. This radio station is huge. Gaga, Perry, unrtortunately Beiber, and I was really excited.

    Well he would be beautiful singing Silent Night, but its certainly not a winter/non-Xmas song.

    I didn’t mean to suggest Silent Night was non-Christian/winter song…just that I would love to hear him sing it….I know he won’t.

  28. Those 155 pics really are all gorgeous. Good photographer happening there.

  29. Jambajim: Justin Bieber just sang about his girl “doing” him. I hope she’s his age. Otherwise they be breaking some mad laws, yo. #BabiesMakingBabies

    oh uggg i know theres a reason i dont like that kid..

  30. 155 pics of Kris!!! Thank you Z100 and you guys for posting! Good thing I’ve a huge harddrive.

  33. Why, Kris? JK. At least he is hanging out with the Fray!! After that Kris, go find Allison and Adam for a Kradison reunion.

    Well earlier he was rocking out to John Mayer from backstage, so there is that. Plus hanging out with him.

    Usher and Bieber doing a number together. How shocking. I didn’t see that one coming.

    I don’t think its soldout.

    Nah ‘“ I sacrificed enough to listen to him for 20 minutes on the idol tour -lol! Not up to sitting through all those acts to hear him MC. I’ll wait for the solo tour. Are you going?

    I’ll answer your question here.
    Nah – ain’t going – unless I get luxury box tickets free from the Coca Cola guys(dreaming I know)
    Besides, Im not digging Shakira lately.

  36. Okay, the tweets about Kris chanting Beiber are killing me. Kris is all about the love man.

    that and the music.

  39. LOL – The fetus with hair has corrupted bb Kris. Not good.

    By the way, there’s like a million lutzy pics of Kris and Adam in that gift lounge. Especially the ones of Kris playing with the dolls

  40. Kris Allen – Too Much Hot!!! Fans Self !! Tries to maintain lusid… no no no..I mean.. lucid train of thought!!

  41. By the way, there’s like a million lutzy pics of Kris and Adam in that gift lounge. Especially the ones of Kris playing with the dolls

    I think those are my favourites. His expressions are priceless. I like that all three of them looked like they were having fun with the swag. So random to have them take pictures of you with weird stuff you can get for free or whatever. I mean what with with the Duracell bike thing?

  42. I liked the tweet from Family Games Night where they said that Kris could cross Monopoly City off his list. Guess he got that from Swag central.

  43. As expected Adam introduced Taylor, plugged his album…and that was it.

    Not useless at all. He did get to wear those purple 2010 sunglasses after all.

    Well at least Kris got to perform and Allison introduced him, though sucks she didn’t get to perform. But given the level of that line-up, yeah, that wasn’t going to happen. But maybe next year when she has a hit or two under her belt. It could happen.

  44. if adam does sing a song, it wont be christmas-hes said ‘im jewish’  lol when asked about christmas songs

    Adam could always sing about his dreidel LOL (if you didn’t see The View this doesn’t make sense.) :)

    My dreidel’s always playful
    It loves to dance and spin
    A happy game of dreidel
    Come play now, let’s begin!

    (Verse from The Dreidel Song which was always included in my kid’s public school Christmas programs.)

    Why all the Justiin Bieber hate? What has he ever done except make teenage girls happy? I think he’s cute.

    And up until now I thought we finally had a common cause that would unite all Adam, Kris and Allison (and Danny?) fans in harmony.

    Oh well.

  46. I don’t think I’ve ever right clicked saved on so many pictures in any day in my life as much as I have tonight with all this awesomeness

  47. Justin’s very… VERY talented, wait till that little shit grows up, mass talent there.. Sings, dances, Guitar, drums.. piano..etc.

    I thought Adam was “Theatre” trained? he seams to have vocal fatigue a lot.. during the press tour.. and Idol tour… before and during, and they’ve been saying he’s taking it easy.. I know a few theatre vocalist and they sing Eight times a week.. heck even Sebastian Bach (90’s rock singer without much training) did it with The “Jesus Christ Superstar” tour and was rocking every night, and four shows on the weekend… just sayin’ and he SCREAMED his face off.

  48. My friend and I are going tomorrow night to the Y100 Jingle Ball in Ft. Lauderdale. Another friend asked us to take her tween daughters because they were dying to go and she refused to take them. haha. Now my friend and I won’t look bad at all amongst the tweenies. yay!!

  49. I thought Adam was ‘Theatre’  trained? he seams to have vocal fatigue a lot.. during the press tour.. and Idol tour’ ¦

    I don’t know where this is coming from because Adam didn’t miss any performances on tour. Vocal fatigue, a lot? Huh?

  50. I’m not sure if these have been posted yet:

    I’ve got all the gift lounge photos in the other thread!

    I’ll probably do a separate thread for interviews.

  51. Awwww, Adam was so happy for Kris. And yet understandably all sads for not being able to perform. Which yeah, I guess Adam thinks of his “hosting,” these things and not performing to be as cool as I do. Which is to say, not at all. sigh.

    Well pretty pictures and spins. Have to concentrate on that.

  52. It looks like there should be some good Idol press for the weekend. Lots of interviews!!

  53. Almost everybody uses “autotune” in the STUDIO, it’s so easy to do to get the perfect note..s, Adam doesn’t really need it, but I’m sure some of his STUDIO stuff has been touched with it, it’s really kind of cool, but I HATE IT, too.

    He’s a KID for the love of God, I’ve played music my entire life and that little feller has talent, I’m not into kid music, but I know talent when I see it, that’s all I’m saying.

    Rub, Sebastian’s chords are shot from the Weed, drinking.. a LOT of drinking which I’ve done with him several times I’d drink two and he’d drink a TON of some odd beer and vino. he just hasn’t taken care of himself, at all. but during JCS he voice was so strong every night, he didn’t miss a show…until he left the show… er got fired due to RIP Carl Anderson.

    Anyway back to the thread topic.. Justin is very talented, and if he keeps his head on straight will have a huge career. I so respect a kid that learns his craft and doesn’t HAVE to depend on fake computer rubbish.

  54. That was so cute when Adam looked over his shoulder at the monitor when Kris was onstage.

    Hopefully Adam gets to play MSG someday soon, too.

  55. Justin’s very’ ¦ VERY talented, wait till that little shit grows up, mass talent there.. Sings, dances, Guitar, drums.. piano..etc.

    I thought Adam was ‘Theatre’  trained? he seams to have vocal fatigue a lot.. during the press tour.. and Idol tour’ ¦ before and during, and they’ve been saying he’s taking it easy..

    Am I missing something? First off the only time I’ve heard Bieber live was that duet with Jordin and he sounded like crap. From what I understand, that’s pretty much how he sounds live. He’s like Taylor Swift and many other artists, he needs a studio to sound good. Which is fine and he evidently really successful singing songs that I find not just insipid, but not even fun insipid for me. YMMV and that’s cool.

    And what about Adam’s vocal fatigue? he didn’t miss one show on the tour. He didn’t always do interviews/meet and greets, but he didn’t miss one show. And it’s not just the singing, but sometimes the speaking that gets singers, so it’s not uncommon for Broadway singers or people like Xtina not to talk the days of shows at all.

    But really, am I missing something? why is Adam being brought up just because some people weren’t liking Bieber? There are people who also hate Adam, who just don’t like Bieber’s singing and find his being as popular as he is for what he does, to be ‘I don’t get it.’

  56. I don’t know anything about Justin Bieber, but every tween generation has their idols… It’s all good.

  57. Truth..

    look aroung youtube before Justin made it.. which is how Usher found him on Youtube.

    He sand some Timberlake songs etc.. played Guitar, piano.. drums and I could show some songs were his voice is perfect… again, he’s not my cup of tea.. Adam’s more my vocal God, but I’m just sayin’ that I respect the little shits talent, that’s all..

    I’m a straight guy and a Glambert.. so that should show how much I love Adams music. :)

  58. I’ll take your word for it Lorenzo. I don’t really care enough to listen to Bieber beyond that performance with Jordin, because it looked lulzy. And I will say that everyone has bad vocal performances, even some of the best singers have had times their vocals weren’t that good. So if you say it’s a one-off, I’ll believe you.

  59. Wow lorenzo, you are a rare species! A straight guy not afraid to expose his inner glambert. I think I love you!

  60. Wait, so Kris and Adam greeted each other with a hug, but we don’t get that picture? FAIL media people

  61. Wait, so Kris and Adam greeted each other with a hug, but we don’t get that picture? FAIL media people

    Dude! I know. But get a picture of them looking at each other afterwards and with Kris’s back. pfft.

  62. That was so cute when Adam looked over his shoulder at the monitor when Kris was onstage.

    They brought Adam to NYC just to intro Taylor Swift??? Either he works cheap or Z100 had money to burn for setting this thing up. What a waste of his time and talent. :(

    Boy, I don’t know. I watched that massive train wreck of a duet with Jordin from last night in Boston, and Bieber’s “singing” was some of the worst I’ve ever heard. I’m not kidding. I would be astonished if he actually can sing without being Auto-Tuned up the wazoo.

    IMHO somebody not good enough to sing well without Auto-Tune isn’t good enough to sing professionally.

    ahhh…. Adam’s interview is already up on youtube!!?!?!? Stopppp… no more news for the day please….ADAMMMMM..LOL

    I am in the other side of the planet and was planning to get some spring cleaning done… nowwwww all my plans for the day down the drain. sob sob..

    shit why is he is mesmerising!? can never get enough.

  73. I bet it felt incredible for Kris to hear MSG singing along to LLWD. What a moment for him.

  74. I don’t think Justin Beiber fans post here too much. Good grief, he is a hottie with the young girls. The AI crowd is a little more “sophisticated”…. :))))

    I think JB has nothing to worry about!

    Sorry! I was responding to some post but forgot to link…

  75. YIKES!!! Kris and Adam hugging must have been the most awkward and uncomfortable moment ever. It’s obvious Kris has been trying to distance himself from Adam for some time now. “Kradam” only existed in blogosphere. People in the real world could care less.

    Kris has never tried to distance himself from Adam, and vice-verse. They’re friends.

    It is? I guess that’s why he totally avoided him on the red carpet a couple of weeks ago.

  83. Well I really think he is doing this type of stuff to promote his album with the particular audience that goes to these concerts…I do think its a little bizarre but as a performer he wouldnt fit in with the rest of the ppl, they are mostly teenagers…I think if he has at least one or two radio hits in the upcoming months hell be fine..I FINALLY heard him on the radio (they played WWFM) the other night on some countdown and he was at the top so I was really happy :)
    I just reeeeaaaally want to see him live..I just hope they have a big budget for his tour…I think a lot of ppl are willing to pay to see him…I for one am…his album just needs to keep selling…now is when he needs more radio play…but fear not cuz he will be on Leno and Conan, Chelsey Lately and SYTYCD….I cant believe they are not taping his New Year’s eve performance…EPIC fail…the peeps who are attending better take cameras…pretty please!!!

  84. What was Kris doing on TMZ? Or maybe I should ask what TMZ was doing on Kris?

    They were talking about the flight he was on. It consisted of Reggie Jackson, Michael Keaton, Pierce Brosnan, Maggie Gylenhall, Ben Savage, and Kris Allen. They were trying to figure out if it went down who the story would focus on. LOL they settled on Pierce Brosnan.

  85. Kris was just on TMZ. LOL

    West Coaster here, I can’t believe that I’m TIVOing TMZ just to see Kris.

    And Kris performance on The Bonnie Hunt on Monday: he is wearing the red plaid from Sacramento Jingleball. Acoustic style, Kris and the band were sitting on high stools.

    Great job tonight , Kris.

  86. wwfm is about to break top 40 so most likely after the freeze it can continue to climb:)

    Need video of that please..

  88. larc: IMHO somebody not good enough to sing well without Auto-Tune isn’t good enough to sing professionally.

    EXACTLY! I’ve said this very thing in the past.

    But it could have just been an off performance night. Every singer has them, yes even the trained and really good ones. It happens. So while I’m not going to go searching YouTubes to see if Bieber can sing live well on other occasions, if others say they’re heard him do it, I’m willing to concede that point to them.

    As for Kradam, I don’t think that Kris is trying to distance himself from Adam as friends so much that they can still hug each other and be genuinely happy to see each other. I’m sure Kris is more than done with being linked musically and the competition crap, and all of that. But not remain friendly to him, I don’t see why? Adam sure seemed like a fan of Kris’s in his interview and happy for his friend, I guess I would assume the same for Kris.

    this is supposed to be funny!? lol

    Even funnier is that, out of that group, Kris wanted his picture taken with Ben Savage. I mean, Remington Steele/James Bond? Mr. October? Mr. Mom/Beetlejuice/Batman??

    Oh, Kris. You are so totally true to yourself. I woulda been all over Pierce and my husband woulda wanted to meet Reggie Jackson but probably would’ve been too shy.

  91. now i want to see videos of Kris at MSG

    It is? I guess that’s why he totally avoided him on the red carpet a couple of weeks ago.

    clearone, your source?

  92. ha ha… Kris making the pursed lip face…. done by Adam and many of folks including my daughter….. so cute…..

  93. Hmm… is Jim a big fan of Cale too? Here are their tweet convo..

    jambajim @calevis24 Hey dude – sorry I didn’t walk over and introduce myself earlier. Didn’t wanna intrude. Congrats on your first MSG gig!

    jambajim @calevis24 Congrats again! Have fun in NYC. Catan night at Casa Cantiello next time y’all are free. (Haha like u have free time.)

  96. It is? I guess that’s why he totally avoided him on the red carpet a couple of weeks ago.

    yeah, seems i didn’t get the irony at first! ugh

  97. Why am I not surprised that Cantiello and Kris are both into Settlers of Catan? That game is addictive.

  98. It is? I guess that’s why he totally avoided him on the red carpet a couple of weeks ago.

    I believe she was kidding!

    Clearly it was sarcasm given that there are pictures of them posing together on the red carpet. Or like the week before at the US Weekly thing when they were hugging and doing an interview together and as part of it, clearly teasing each other.

    Yes, obviously Kris hates Adam now.

  99. Hmm.. Do everyone forget Jordin or she gets no love here??? No one has mentioned anything about her performance…

  100. @semicharmederic: Just ran into Adam lambert at a club. Hot! 2 minutes ago from TweetDeck

  101. Hmm.. Do everyone forget Jordin or she gets no love here??? No one has mentioned anything about her performance’ ¦

    Well mj mentioned her, does that count? Oh and her performance with Bieber was referenced. Well mostly just to say that Justin sucked in that, but hey, we talked about her.

    Which I gather she did the No Air thing again with Bieber. If there are YouTubes we can see if he managed to sing it any better this time. Last time was a trainwreck for him vocally.

  102. Re: Justin Bieber, is there any chance his voice is in flux, as still changing? He’s only 15. Just wonderin’…

  103. who’s the guy Kris is shaking hands with in the 9th picture from the top?

    Thats Pitbull :) He had a really huge hit with his remix of that song “I know you want me” hes awesome his music is fun its provocative dance music

    Yes it was definitely sarcasm.

  106. I hope the friends get to hang out together. Some lucky people are going to get to see them perform together.

    thanks adamisthemanfan,

    is the song, on the Seacrest top 40 that was animated by Kris and Adam, about which Kris said : “.. takes a new meaning now that Adam is sitting beside me..” (or something similar) ? :)

    Who?

    LOL. Anyway, I was asking as I’m totally neutral to her as I didn’t watch AI till S7 and didn’t know anything about this site till this year. So was just an observation.

  109. is the song, on the Seacrest top 40 that was animated by Kris and Adam, about which Kris said : ‘.. takes a new meaning now that Adam is sitting beside me..’  (or something similar) ?

    YEP! Thats the one LOL.

  110. Taylor Swift looks so giddy meeting Adam, or maybe thats just her personality, shes very bubbly and good lord shes tall. Shes gotta be like 6ft or something.

  111. There’s a new ADAM thread now!!!

    Whew!!!

    snlw, yeah, I was never a fan of Jordin’s. I don’t dislike her, I just never got into her.

    Has someone posted this video? They interviewed Adam and Kris both, and there’s a small portion of Heartless:

    And did you guys see this funny picture of Kris performing?

    http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=28aryp1&s=6

    It must have been exciting at MSG tonight. Here’s Taylor Twift’s(haha) and John Mayer’s tweets:

    johncmayer The excitement is so thick here at Jingle Ball, you could cut it with @justinbieber’s buoy knife.

    Tonight was one of those nights you don’t ever forget the details of. Every little thing was shiny. Jingle Ball. What a way to end the year.

  112. Edited to say again, loving all the pictures and quality of them. Lots of great stuff tonight!

    Now if I can just get Adam and Allison singing at these things as well. And during the show, not as pre-show or “host.”

  113. So I assume that Kris will get is own thread with this interviews, same for Allison. And Kris’s thread will add in YouTubes of his performances.

    Or am I making an ass out of you and umption?

    yeah, MJ told earlier that there will be separate threads

    It really doesn’t matter whether or not Adam sings. He still gets top billing.

  115. It really doesn’t matter whether or not Adam sings. He still gets top billing.

    First off, Adam didn’t get top billing, not even close. That would be Taylor Swift, with Bieber being very popular and people like John Mayer, and The Fray as being much more in the order of billing, imho. But beyond that for me personally I don’t care about billing, I care about hearing Adam’s music. And yeah, I’d like Adam to be able to be about his music as much as possible. Oh and beyond WWFM would be groovy at this point.

    Truthiness, sorry I misspoke. What I meant was…for example: the very first video I watched tonight was this one:

    http://www.myfoxny.com/dpp/entertainment/music/091211-z100-jingle-ball

    How does she start out? By talking about Adam and 2 other performers…and Adam didn’t even perform. So he doesn’t even need to sing. He gets great press anyway. That was my point.

    haha…Mtlfan, Kris can even rock finger puppets!! :lol:

  117. And up until now I thought we finally had a common cause that would unite all Adam, Kris and Allison (and Danny?) fans in harmony.

    No, that would be Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus. ;-)

  118. Loved Kris’s performance tonight. I thought he made some good choices with what songs to sing. You know, “Can’t Stay Away” is the only song besides LLWD that Kris sings everywhere (except maybe the Hartford gig), and if that was a conscious decision to see how it would be received by a live audience, then I think it’s got a great shot of being the next single.

    I legit teared up when I heard the audience singing along to LLWD. It’s so great to see this song so well-received after such a lousy start, with Scriptgate and all that nonsense. Z100 has really backed Kris 100% and I’m very grateful to them for that.

    Also, I laughed at the end of CSA when Kris takes off his jacket and the audience cheers :D He’s quite the hottie, and I love that jacket he was wearing. Very Coldplay-Viva-La-Vida inspired! He looked amazing. I also loved Allison’s introduction of him. She really got the crowd going. Overall, I’d say an amazing reception for Kris! But then again, when has he had a bad reception? So happy for him!

  119. Hmm.. Do everyone forget Jordin or she gets no love here??? No one has mentioned anything about her performance’ ¦

    She’s a female, women don’t get much talk.

  120. Wow! Bieber looks 12 in that picture.

    i thought he was 12!

    and wow! i totally missed this jingle ball, arriving too late but catching up on all the gossip and comments. for what its worth, let me add one more comment on how hot kris looks. love the jacket and love the tshirt even more. hehe. i always forget he has those nice arms beneath the plaid shirts! sigh

    and allison is looking lovely too. love her dress but sometimes i wish she wears other colours instead of only black

  121. I’m usually not too impressed with Kris’s look but I gotta say that I really like that jacket.
    Adam always looks hot to me. Even in plaid. lol

    It is a little disappointing that Adam didn’t perform. I’m still not clear on the reason for it. Added too late? Anyway, that DJ was really a fan so that’s a good thing.

  122. OMG who dressed Kris??????????????? It’s about time!

    He looks great!
