Adam Lambert, Paula Abdul and Snoop Dogg to announce the AMA Nominations Next Week

This just in:

Adam Lambert, Paula Abdul and Snoop Dogg will announce the American Music Award nominations on October 13th at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

I’m hearing this is a press conference, and won’t air live on television. Although I would assume there will be video after the fact.

The American Music Awards will air on ABC on November 22.

ETA: The AMAs will air two days before Adam’s album drops on the 24th. ABC isn’t FOX, but they have a good relationship with the Idols, nonetheless. Adam appearing on the AMA telecast to promote his album is a pretty good bet at this point…

I’ll be editing more details into this post as they become available…watch this space for details.

    Oops, sorry, that was just me projectile-drooling.

    What an awesome kickoff for his CD an actual AMA awards show performance would be!!!!!!!

  4. Maybe Jared’s iphone corrected Anoop to snoop…hey…happened to MJ during her tweets :)

  5. Is that a light drizzle I feel??

    Getting my galoshes and rain slicker out. Oh yeah, I live in Southern California … I don’t even own an umbrella. That’s okay ‘“ soak me in it!

    Congrats BB for being chosen for this!

  6. LOL! Storm a coming? ;-)

    Ok, excitement starting…growing….growing…!

  7. Oh, no. Another week of hearing about Pauler. Can’t she just go away? Pretty please?

    On the other hand, she could show up bombed and give us another trainwreck moment.

  8. Maybe Jared’s iphone corrected Anoop to snoop’ ¦hey’ ¦happened to MJ during her tweets

    All will be confirmed if MJ gets the stinkeye again…..

  9. Please…let’s remember the roadblock and not get ahead of ourselves!!!!!!!!!!

    In the meantime, SQUEEEEEEEEEE.

    Ok. done.

  10. I bet Paula and Adam give each other a long, long hard hug upon their meeting, and lots of chit chat.

  11. The announcers don’t seem to represent what the current music industry is. Oh well. lol

    and for BNA… ADAM LAMBERT <3 <3 <3 *swoons* (Best new artist yet to release music category)

    I knew you’d be on the case, Q3!! An awards show performance would be a perfectly and flawlesly executed promotion for the CD release two days later!!!!

    halfie, can we get a man-SQUEEEE!!????

  13. doesn’t that announcement usually happen b4 6am PT so it can make the morning shows like GMA?

  14. Nice. It doesn’t really mean anything in terms of him performing or presenting at the actual awards, but this is still a good gig for Adam — although it means getting up real early, I think….(if these announcements are timed like those for the Oscars, meant to be seen on the early morning shows like GMA and Today)

  15. “The announcers don’t seem to represent what the current music industry is. Oh well. lol”

    *snickers*

  16. I never know where the hell to post when we get two news stories a day. I is confused…..

  17. Paula knows the talent Adam Lambert holds. It will more than EXPLODE when his songs are released! ….WORLDWIDE. Paula is very smart.

  18. Nice. It doesn’t really mean anything in terms of him performing or presenting at the actual awards,

    And you know this how? Maybe, maybe not. We’ll find out soon enough!

    It certainly would be, but I’m not getting my hopes up (She says while her fingers are firmly crossed in desperate pleading hope).

  21. I think there’s a pretty good chance Adam will perform on the AMAs’ ¦.

    That will be AWESOME!!!!!!!!

  22. I think there’s a pretty good chance Adam will perform on the AMAs’ ¦.

    yessssss!

  23. Yay for Adam! I hope he can perform on some shows soon! Saturday Night Live would be a good one…as would a New Year’s eve performance w/Ryan emceeing.

  24. I think there’s a pretty good chance Adam will perform on the AMAs’ ¦.

    Really? Who usually performs?

  25. Is that a light drizzle I feel??

    Putting Billie Holiday on for background music:
    “Dont know why theres no sun up in the sky
    Stormy weather”

    Is the forecast for an AdamStorm??
    Will there be a glittery alien up in the sky next week?
    Will Rod/Bob take his viagra, and point back upwards?

    “I feel stormy weather / Moving in about to begin”
    “It’s Raining Men! Hallelujah! – It’s Raining Men! Amen!
    I’m gonna go out to run and let myself get
    Absolutely soaking wet!
    It’s Raining Men! Hallelujah!
    It’s Raining Men! Every Specimen!
    Tall, blonde, dark and lean
    Rough and tough and strong and mean”

    AdamStorm!! (I hope)

  26. Oh, no. Another week of hearing about Pauler. Can’t she just go away? Pretty please?

    On the other hand, she could show up bombed and give us another trainwreck moment.

    You’re my new best friend! Anyhoo, Adam announcing the noms for the AMA awards… aaaaaaaaaaah!

    To kinda use Kara’s comment: I don’t do this very often, but

    SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

  29. Q3, want to set up a new spreadsheet for Adam’s storm?

    Nov 22: AMA’s (hopeful)
    Nov 23: airborne (to NYC)
    Nov 24: GMA (NYC)
    Nov 25: prob addl NY press. (can we hope for Letterman?)
    Nov 26: Thanksgiving w/ Neil in NY (just a guess)

  30. Squuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuueeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Ok now, breathe! SQUUUUUUUUUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

    done and done

  31. SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

    (Please have Adam perform, pretty please…something from the album, assuming there *is* something from the album to perform.)

    (I am exhausted from all of the news and predicted news and rain and thunder and lighting and hail. I need to take a break.)

    And during the questions portion of the announcements:

    Question: Adam, are you sorry that Paula is no longer a judge on Idol?
    Answer: Well, Paula was very supportive to all of us, but I am sure Ellen will be terrific as well.

  32. OMG MJ!!!

    you wouldnt tease unless you had ~knowledge….right? that’s what im going to tell myself.

    SINGING IN THE RAIN, JUST SINGING IN THE RAIN, WHAT A GLORIOUS FEEEEEEELING IM HAPHAPHAPPY AGAIN!

  33. I think there’s a pretty good chance Adam will perform on the AMAs’ ¦

    OH please, Oh please, let that be true!!! :) :)

  34. I think there’s a pretty good chance Adam will perform on the AMAs’ ¦.

    That will be AWESOME!!!!!!!!

    More than AWESOME!!!!!!
    Good times are coming :-)

    Actually I think Kara’s comment was more like,”Yes, Yes, Yes!!!”

    OMG!!!!!!!!!!!! How wonderful for Adam-and us- if he gets to perform!!

  36. There has not been a peep of new music from this man yet he may have a spot on the AMAs unbelievable. I love it, but it’s just crazy unbelievable.

    I can’t wait for his redcarpet outfit :-)

  37. Now that is an’ ¦interesting combination.

    Adam may wind up doing a lot of the talking.

  38. halfie, can we get a man-SQUEEEE!!????

    No. (But I may be persuaded to provide a celebratory fist-bump).

  39. Maybe Adam will make an appearance (and sing) at the Macy’s Thanksgsving Day Parade!

  40. There has not been a peep of new music from this man yet he may have a spot on the AMAs unbelievable. I love it, but it’s just crazy unbelievable.

    Considering that his album went to #1 on amazon, w/out a hint of leakage…not so crazy. Awesome, however. ;)

    Iconic!Adam

  41. Pray tell, what have some of you been smoking to go from presenting the nominees to performing on AMA? Don’t get it. Source?

    Winking hint from MJ works for me.

  43. suebrody

    I’m totally not getting any work done today, am I?

    I know and it is so so bad

    No. (But I may be persuaded to provide a celebratory fist-bump).

    That works!

  44. I think there’s a pretty good chance Adam will perform on the AMAs’ ¦.

    Since this comes from MJ, I’m marking it on my calendar.

    Wow, very exciting start for Adam’s career!

    I don’t have any confirmation that Adam will be performing on the AMAs…yet.

  47. DishofSalt Adam!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! will be announcing the AMA noms on Tuesday. Hoping they will send me to do intvs. fingers crossed everyone.
    13 minutes ago from TweetDeck

    AWW.Laura Saltzman is such a fangirl.

  48. I feel like singing “Happy days are here again, the skies above are stormy again, so let’s sing a song of cheer again, happy days are here again”, but I will restrain myself until after something actually happens.

  49. Haha, I definitely am reading with Idol goggles these days. I glanced at the headline and I was like, whoa, how’d Anoop get in there? LOL.

    Woot, AMA!

  50. makes sense that he would perform at AMAs (or at least present)…it is 2 days before album release, single will already be out, it occurs during the time period he will be doing lots of promo, idols have performed on the AMAs in the past, seems like a good event for him etc. So i think it is highly likely that it will happen

  51. The AMAs will air two days before Adam’s album drops on the 24th. ABC isn’t FOX, but they have a good relationship with the Idols, nonetheless. Adam appearing on the AMA telecast to promote his album is a pretty good bet at this point’ ¦

    That would be BEYOND awesome! Oh, getting excited as we FIANLLY get our Adamstorm rolling into town :-) Just as I was starting to go crazy with anticipation!

  52. halfie, can we get a man-SQUEEEE!!????

    No. (But I may be persuaded to provide a celebratory fist-bump).

    LOL! You guys are all too funny today! I’ve had too many lulz today at work :-)

  53. Kinda interesting, no?

    DO NOT tempt me ;-)

    Just thinking about how much I already paid for tour concerts this summer, this would not really be so crazy for me…hmmm….

  57. halfie, can we get a man-SQUEEEE!!????

    No. (But I may be persuaded to provide a celebratory fist-bump).

    halfie, how about a fist-pump and a little squee. (See, no caps or an exclamation point.)

  58. 19 got Cook a pre-AMA performance last year. I can’t remember if it was televised or not. But 19 and the AMAwards seems to have some deal going. They had bleachers set up for Cook’s fans and everything.

    Paula, Adam and Snoop Dog – that’s a pretty odd threesome. :)

  59. nothing official’ ¦ but a minor ‘i would say the chances are good’  from MJ who tends to be pretty reliable

    I don’t have any confirmation that Adam will be performing on the AMAs’ ¦yet.

    I will so totally take this and the timeframe that it is perfect press blitz time! DAMN I’m going to be on a freaking ship on the 22nd. TiVo, don’t fail me now. (Oh yeah, and MJ’s of course!)

    SQUEEEEE!! How will we ever get any work done in the next two months?

    @yinyang, it’s rainin’ Adam Hallelujia!!

  60. Wow, Cavallo produced 7 tracks? And are these tracks which have made the final album cut? Now I really have no idea what to expect.

    Good to finally have news. So exciting!

  61. What an endorsement from the music industry to think Adam is an upcoming artist! I’m loving this. Can’t wait to see his outfit! sing me a song Adam Myabe he’ll sing the title song from TFM? OR HIS NEW SINGLE…HECK…i’LL TAKE BOTH

    Maybe Adam will make an appearance (and sing) at the Macy’s Thanksgsving Day Parade!

    I bet you are right! Darn, I have plans to leave the city to celebrate Thanksgiving with family…grrr…

  63. I hope it is a collaborative effort on Adam’s team and Adam who gets to interview him. Some people who were in his corner from the beginning like Laura Saltzman, Lyndsey Parker, of course, RS.

  64. No not the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade!!!– I have already planned to take my little one this year-

    Could you imagine Adam and Santa Claus!!!

  65. i can’t imagine that Adam would do the Thanksgiving parade….just doesn’t seem like the right sort of vehicle for him

  66. 19 got Cook a pre-AMA performance last year. I can’t remember if it was televised or not. But 19 and the AMAwards seems to have some deal going. They had bleachers set up for Cook’s fans and everything.

    You’re right! I remember that now. Of course, David was the winner. Wouldn’t it be weird if Adam did something like that?

  67. I was just joking about the parade, it would remind me of a pageant…

    However, does anyone think that he may get another cover of RS coming up…..

  68. 19 got Cook a pre-AMA performance last year. I can’t remember if it was televised or not. But 19 and the AMAwards seems to have some deal going. They had bleachers set up for Cook’s fans and everything.

    It was televised during the pre-show. LO was televised, and part of Declaration was televised before a commercial break. Fans got a handful of songs in person, though.

  69. You’re right! I remember that now. Of course, David was the winner. Wouldn’t it be weird if Adam did something like that?

    If it’s a winner thing then Kris will be doing it – or maybe both.

  72. Just to get people excited for AMA’s, here’s a little clip from last year’s red carpet (plus there are some DC and DA sightings as well): HERE

    Adam needs to be on the lookout for Guillermo. He also needs to go shopping STAT.

  73. Perhaps having two people from AI doing the announcing is an indication that there will be a large number of nominations for Idol alums this year. I sure hope so.

    19 got Cook a pre-AMA performance last year. I can’t remember if it was televised or not. But 19 and the AMAwards seems to have some deal going. They had bleachers set up for Cook’s fans and everything.

    Yes, they did televise some of it.

  74. You’re right! I remember that now. Of course, David was the winner.

    Kris is getting a LOT of opportunities these days to perform (Napa, radio stations) and there has been nary a tweet from Adam’ ¦

    Oh darn. Yeah, it could be a winner’s thing for Kris to perform instead of Adam. Oh well, it was fun squeeing for a bit.

  75. OMG! OMG! Adam announcing the AMA nominations and possibly performing! Is there a smilie for jumping up and down and squeeing??

    I’m soooooooooooo excited!

    Why did they pick Snoop Dogg and Paula to announce when they are incoherent sometimes! Is Adam their interpreter?

    WOW! Seven tracks! Interesting how Carvallo’s people included it in his resume with all the great things he’s done lately for so many superstars in the music industry!

    PS: I really LOVE Paramore’s Decode from Twilight! It’s a kickass song!

  77. If I’m remembering correctly, last year Archie presented an award at the AMAs (as well as Cook performing at the pre-show). So if the rumor is correct, Adam performing at the actual show is a big step up! I hope it’s true!

  78. David Cook also introduced Taylor Swift on last year’s show as well. And throughout the show, the TV would pan across the audience, and I remember seeing him and his drummer, Kyle, in the audience shots.

    So I hope Kris Allen can also participate in the televised awards show — regardless of whether he performs or not.

    ETA: Yup, Archie presented as well –Best Male Country Artist, Brad Paisley. There was a great Jimmy Kimmel clip w/Archie on the red carpet with Guillermo, too. Heh. Good times.

  79. The night before the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade is just as much fun as the parade itself. The balloons are blown up on the streets of the Upper West Side and people comb the streets to watch.

    I can’t even imaging what it is to go to the parade these days. I’m guessing it’s one of those “wait by the barricades from the night before” kind of events.

  80. Paula, Adam and Snoop Dog ‘“ that’s a pretty odd threesome.

    I’ll take celebrity trivia for a $200. What three musical celebrities have never released any real music?

  81. If I’m remembering correctly, last year Archie presented an award at the AMAs (as well as Cook performing at the pre-show). So if the rumor is correct, Adam performing at the actual show is a big step up! I hope it’s true!

    You’re forgetting Adam wasn’t the winner. So highly likely Kris will perform, and Adam may be a presenter.

  82. I thought we were done with the “winner’s thing” and all that? The competition is over and Kris did all the winner’s publicity stuff then. They are on different labels – shouldn’t album promotion be totally separate from any former AI competition stuff?

  83. i can’t imagine that Adam would do the Thanksgiving parade’ ¦.just doesn’t seem like the right sort of vehicle for him

    All around me are inflated faces
    Bloated cases
    of gaseous races

    Bright and early now I sing for masses
    Of shivered lasses
    Who grab my ass, is

    Anyone thinking this is funny
    I think it’s kinda sad
    Kris is living like he’s dying
    And I’m freezing off my nads

    My fingers all have turned blue
    There’s no more that I can take
    The float is turning circles
    And you’re about to see this
    Lad hurled, Lad hurled

  84. So I hope [the kid who won] can also participate in the televised awards show ‘” regardless of whether he performs or not.

    Do they make plaid tuxedos, now?

    I agree, as I said earlier, Kris has been getting a lot of pr from his label lately, Adam none so far, it would be nice IF Adam could perform at least his new single (if it’s even out by then)…The competition is over, right ? right ?

  86. Hmm, not so sure about the Macy’s parade. The do often have recording artists in the parade – but it seems to me they mostly just ride on a float. Most of the performances I remember from that parade are broadway stuff – may not be what RCA/19 is looking to associate Adam with at this time….

    LOL. WIN!!!!

  88. i don’t think performing at the AMAs is a “winners” thing…that stuff is mostly over

  89. SQUEEEEE!! How will we ever get any work done in the next two months?

    LOL! How have I gotten any work done since Spring! I place blame squarely on Adam :-)

    If I’m remembering correctly, last year Archie presented an award at the AMAs (as well as Cook performing at the pre-show). So if the rumor is correct, Adam performing at the actual show is a big step up! I hope it’s true!

    You’re forgetting Adam wasn’t the winner. So highly likely Kris will perform, and Adam may be a presenter.

    Nothing against Kris – but I’m more of the mindset that, post-finale, post-tour, post-AI, they’re their own people now, with their own media rounds to do. I don’t think the winner, runner-up mold should hold true anymore.

  90. Do they make plaid tuxedos, now?

    LMAO!

    ETA: halfie that was priceless!

  91. DARN IT! Just when I thought I had enough strength to walk away, I am obediently following the trial of glitter and eyeliner, back to my Adam shrine. I can’t believe I am a 47 year old woman, obsessing over a guy young enough to be my kid. I think I am going to have to go into rehab, maybe in a few years.

  92. And for both the AMA announcements and (possible) AMA appearance, Adam better step it up from YHA attire. Those red carpet pics will not die.

  93. bridgette12,

    Your rehab stint will have to wait until after the solo tour!!

    BTW my oldest son IS 27-how uncomfortable is that for me!!!

  94. Well….I remember Clay and Ruben performing TOGETHER on the AMA’s and Clay winning favourite new artist because of Claymate spamming. Is there still such a category?

  95. And for both the AMA announcements and (possible) AMA appearance, Adam better step it up from YHA attire. Those red carpet pics will not die.

    I think the AMA’s are big enough that designers will be contacting him wanting him to wear THEIR designs. They are probably drooling over the opportunity since he is so open to nearly any crazy idea!

  96. I am so excited about Cavallo. I thought he just did TFM, but my GOD- he has done Dookie and American Idiot for Green Day and Welcome To The Black Parade for MCR. Those are some great, great, rock albums. Not to mention dave matthews. Very exciting!

    squee.

  97. Ooops, sorry. Subject/verb disagreement moving from stanza two to three — now fixed.

    I may be a goofball, but I can writes good grammar.

  98. i can’t imagine that Adam would do the Thanksgiving parade’ ¦.just doesn’t seem like the right sort of vehicle for him

    I don’t know…a national TV audience…Archie performed last year.

  99. Dare I say it – Adam/Gaga collab at the AMAs ;-) J/K of course, but that would be pretty sweet!

  100. halfie – too funny! Tell me you’re writing for Adam’s album now too :-)

  101. lakato — thanksgiving parade was perfect for Archie…would be great for Kris…for Adam, not so much

  102. They are on different labels ‘“ shouldn’t album promotion be totally separate from any former AI competition stuff?

    YES!! Awards shows are all about the visuals, and who’s the most visually exciting, not to mention (considering CDs aren’t out yet for either one) the most promising new act for next year’s awards?? I rest my case.

  103. ETA: Yup, Archie presented as well ‘“Best Male Country Artist, Brad Paisley. There was a great Jimmy Kimmel clip w/Archie on the red carpet with Guillermo, too. Heh. Good times.

    Jimmy Kimmel hosted last year. He made several cute jokes involving Archie throughout the show. The camera would cut to his smiley face each time. LOL!

  104. halfie – too funny! Tell me you’re writing for Adam’s album now too

    Naturally. Isn’t everybody?

    And thanks for all the positive feedback, I appreciate it.

  105. Adam/Gaga collab at the AMAs

    Please no blood at the AMAs. What’s goes at the VMAs is usually a no no for the AMAs and Grammys

    I may be a goofball, but I can writes good grammar.

    halfie my friend, you’ve been holding out on us! You failed to inform us you’d not only been accepted into the Kara DioGuardi Conservatory of Schlockwriting, but that you had graduated summa cum laude!

  107. halfie, that was so wonderfully crafted! Best song we’ve heard all week!

  108. All around me are inflated faces
    Bloated cases
    of gaseous races

    Bright and early now I sing for masses
    Of shivered lasses
    Who grab my ass, is

    Anyone thinking this is funny
    I think it’s kinda sad
    Kris is living like he’s dying
    And I’m freezing off my nads

    My fingers all have turned blue
    There’s no more that I can take
    The float is turning circles
    And you’re about to see this
    Lad hurled, Lad hurled

    Bwahahaha

  113. I am so excited about Cavallo. I thought he just did TFM, but my GOD- he has done Dookie and American Idiot for Green Day and Welcome To The Black Parade for MCR. Those are some great, great, rock albums. Not to mention dave matthews. Very exciting!

    And he produced David Cook’s debut album… I remember the cookies name checking all those bands last year at this time.

  114. What’s Adam holding in that little brown bag? His urine sample? The urine sample of the mic stand?

    Thanks for the support and understanding. I keep telling myself that when I wear my eyeliner to bed, that I am being “hip”, not delusional.

  117. I’m looking at the pics again, and now I see how tattered his shirt is. So, no, I don’t think he was dressed to impress the pap.

    It was made that way. Like frayed jeans and the such.

  118. hwc:
    Paula, Adam and Snoop Dog ‘“ that’s a pretty odd threesome.

    I’ll take celebrity trivia for a $200. What three musical celebrities have never released any real music?

    A very long time ago, when rap was young, and West Coast Hip Hop was new, Snoop Dogg released “Doggystyle” — which is an important piece of music. Granted, IMO Dr. Dre deserves a lot of the credit for the production of that album, but Snoop Dogg was the key creative force behind it. Just for that one accomplishment, I say he’s actually produced some “real” music.

    But, I’m OK with including Paula and Adam on that list. At least until Adam lets us hear something!!

    oh,and my reaction to this news?;

    SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
    EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
    EEE

  121. Snoop Dogg released ‘Doggystyle’  ‘” which is an important piece of music. Granted, IMO Dr. Dre deserves a lot of the credit for the production of that album, but Snoop Dogg was the key creative force behind it. Just for that one accomplishment, I say he’s actually produced some ‘real’  music.

    Yes, yes he did. I actually find Snoop exponentially more talented than Paula.

  122. Adam/Gaga collab at the AMAs

    Please no blood at the AMAs. What’s goes at the VMAs is usually a no no for the AMAs and Grammys

    Ok, I actually loved the gratuitous blood use of the Gaga VMA performance. Siiiiccck indeed (both literally and figuratively). I love how that song is actually pretty dark and twisted, and she takes it there.

  123. I’m looking at the pics again, and now I see how tattered his shirt is. So, no, I don’t think he was dressed to impress the pap.

    C’mon now, let’s think this through… he goes in with cat o’nines and comes out tattered. Must’ve been quite a struggle, with Adam apparently emerging victorious, plain brown paper bag in hand. Just what kind of doctor WAS this, anyway…….?

  124. Q3: A very long time ago, when rap was young, and West Coast Hip Hop was new, Snoop Dogg released ‘Doggystyle’  ‘” which is an important piece of music.

    Hey….. does this have anything to do with my post above about a struggle……?

  125. I agree, as I said earlier, Kris has been getting a lot of pr from his label lately, Adam none so far, it would be nice IF Adam could perform at least his new single (if it’s even out by then)’ ¦The competition is over, right ? right ?

    I don’t think the winner/loser thing is relevent anymore to these types of situations. The labels and the promoters are going to do what they think will work for whoever they’re promoting.

  126. MJ And he produced David Cook’s debut album’ ¦ I remember the cookies name checking all those bands last year at this time.

    Yep! Cavallo has produced some really good music and some not so good music.

    Before this year, I judged Cook solely on his album and didn’t have much respect for him. But, thanks to many of the Cook fans providing info on his live performances and watching some on YouTube, I realize that David is so much better than his album. It has both lowered my expectations for Idol albums (including Adam’s) and lowered my opinion of Rob Cavallo.

    On the positive side:

    1. Adam is vocally a lot like Meatloaf and Rob Cavallo’s production of Meatloaf has been brilliant. So, just maybe, the outcome will be better.

    2. Adam is working with a lot of producers and they are competing to get on this album — there must be an expectation of earning a lot of money on a potential Adam hit. OTOH David just worked with Cavallo. I really believe that creative competition works.

    3. At least David Hodges doesn’t seem to be involved with Adam’s album. (I do not think that he is a good fit for Adam — and he made that public pitch to produce Adam’s entire album.)

  127. Why did they pick Snoop Dogg and Paula to announce when they are incoherent sometimes! Is Adam their interpreter?

    LMAO!!!!

  128. God, I can’t stop squeeing…seriously.

    Is it possible for both Kris and Adam to sing? (No, I get it, it’s not a competition anymore, I am JUST ASKING.) I would suspect that they both will get to present, at any rate. NO DUETS WITH GAGA unless he is opening for him. ;) (God, could there be any more Adam threads this month? Probably not…yet.)

    Adam never gets to wear anything from the YMAs EVER AGAIN. He can wear his attire from the Elle shoot IF there are no moon outfits involved.

    And so, to celebrate the news, a cover that is dedicated to Kara:

    There is Rejoicing (first verse and chorus)

    Seconds, hours, so many days
    So when will he Twitter; how long must we wait?
    There is no one that is iconic
    Unless they have a voice that’s pure
    I started believing that we’d never hear
    A peep from dear Adam; a gasp and a fear
    That this was all a deep illusion
    That all of us had lost our way
    But then we hear that Adam’s going
    To make announcements for the AMAs
    Perhaps he will perform there, too
    I had a heart attack
    There was no going back
    To silence that we’d known
    We learn an album’s finally coming
    We may even get some song leakage, too
    It’s all too much to take
    I need a pie to bake
    There is rejoicing
    There is rejoicing

  129. lol suebrody:)

    STILL SQUEEEEEEEEING:D

    soooooo I think it’s time 4.an…ADAM STORM!!!!!!!!

  130. i can’t imagine that Adam would do the Thanksgiving parade’ ¦.just doesn’t seem like the right sort of vehicle for him

    Oh, I think that Adam would be great at the Thanksgiving parade — he could do the color commentary. Now that would be a parade worth watching.

    But, no, I do not want to see Adam singing on a float — unless it is a be production number like the parade scene in “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off – Twist And Shout”.

  131. But’ ¦ but’ ¦ imagine the possibilities! Without some lame-ass job harshing your Adam mellow, it would be All Adam/All the Time. Where’s the harm in that?

    I can see it happening already. We’ll be a rag-tag group of disciples (Adamites?) wandering through the desert, living in tents … where was that satellite gizmo we had hooked up so we can power our WiFi connections, DVRs and HDTVs?

  132. anthrogeek
    C’mon now, let’s think this through’ ¦ he goes in with cat o’nines and comes out tattered. Must’ve been quite a struggle, with Adam apparently emerging victorious, plain brown paper bag in hand. Just what kind of doctor WAS this, anyway’ ¦’ ¦.?

    A female urologist, and the paper bag holds the remains of his underwear?

  133. If I’m remembering correctly, last year Archie presented an award at the AMAs (as well as Cook performing at the pre-show). So if the rumor is correct, Adam performing at the actual show is a big step up! I hope it’s true!

    You’re forgetting Adam wasn’t the winner. So highly likely Kris will perform, and Adam may be a presenter.

    When I asked the other day whether the protocol of “winner gets first dibs” on big opportunities still holds — since they’re still managed by the same company — a *lot* of people told me that, no, that was all over once the tour ended, and from here on in whoever is sponsoring the event or tv show or whatever will simply choose whoever they want to be their guest or headliner, that Adam no longer would have to wait in line for opportunities behind Kris, if sponsors wanted him instead.

    Now people are saying the opposite — that the protocol is still in place.

    Anybody have theories about which it really is? And how this really works? Like, does 19 as a management company take any steps to keep the AI brand pure by continuing to push the winner over others, since they’re connected to AI? Or is it really all up to the record companies now, with AI considerations not coming into play?

  134. Anybody have theories about which it really is?

    I don’t think the winner has first dibs anymore. Right after the finale? Yes. Now, they’re on different labels and will probably have different managers. It might seem like the winner gets first dibs, but usually the winner is the most popular, so they’re more likely to be booked for something.

  135. I said it in the other thread, I’m tired of the Kradam. Let them perform/present/promote separately. It will benefit them both I really think.

  136. A female urologist, and the paper bag holds the remains of his underwear?

    Gosh, BestAI, I was gonna keep it clean and say Dr. Dre, who seems to treat both cat o’nine and Doggystyle addictions, but ok… if you wanna go there….

  137. Oh, I think that Adam would be great at the Thanksgiving parade ‘” he could do the color commentary. Now that would be a parade worth watching.

    Ah, Q3 you made my hypothetical Thanksgiving. That would be the best parade evah.

  138. Anybody have theories about which it really is?

    I would think that whomever is doing the hiring/booking decides who they want.
    It really could be just that simple.

    Relationships between mega-entities help, sure, but no more “dibs”- it’s supply and demand now.

  139. Gee, BestAI & anthrogeek, all I can think of is maybe a Proctologist!!

  140. Anybody have theories about which it really is? And how this really works? Like, does 19 as a management company take any steps to keep the AI brand pure by continuing to push the winner over others, since they’re connected to AI? Or is it really all up to the record companies now, with AI considerations not coming into play?

    That is why Clay Aiken sued them to be released from his management contract and won.

    If the AMA’s called and said, we want Adam to perform, and 19M says “nope, you have to have Kris”. That’s a violation of their duties under their management contract with Adam. So, to me, while I assume each respective lable is attempting to get their guy the best promo they can, I don’t believe the management company can force either one on anyone.

    So, the bookers who call and want Kris will get him, and the bookers who want Adam will get him. Sometimes, those things may intersect. They might both appear on the AMA’s in some capacity. But how they do it will likely be up to the guy producing the AMA’s and not 19M.

  141. great news!!. hope he performs too. can’t wait. also this quote from that celebritybuzz link was funny

    No, he’s not at Paris Fashion week. He’s just strutting down the streets of Los Angeles, what’s it to you?

    what’s it to ya indeed.

  142. I am so over Cantiello. Just stirring the pot. Still a fan of Slezak and I lurrrve me some Lindsey.

    Ah, the good old days ….

  152. From what I can put together, there are three different types of Promotional opportunities:

    1. Promo events that are related to American Idol and the Idols Live! Tour – many of these are arranged before the winner is known and are pre-designated for the Winner, Top 2, etc. GMA Summer Tour, Kris doing the Talk Show rounds as winner, etc. I think that even Elle Magazine was in this category — Top finishing Male and Female + next runner up. I don’t think Elle wanted to end up with 3 men because the mag is mostly about Women’s Fashion.

    2. Promo events that are arranged by the artist’s labels and 19M – these appear to be unrelated to “winner” status but based on who the artist is, their style of music and the marketing/promo plan.

    3. Opportunities that are presented to a specific Idol finalist – this would be something like the RS Cover, 2012 Soundtrack, etc.

    Only Category #1 would have a winner’s preference.

    So the question is, was AMA a pre-arranged AI event or not? My guess is yes — I put it in category #1. Last year both Davids were presenters on the show (according to the IMDb cast list — I did not watch the show). This year Adam and Paula are announcing the nominations. And I wouldn’t be surprised if Kris and Adam were both presentors. But I would be surprised if either Kris or Adam performed on the show.

    David Cook performed at the pre-show in 2008

    Daughtry performed on the show in 2007 (but that was a year after his his album)

    Katharine McPhee was announced as performer for the 2006 Awards, but it looks like she attended the event and may have been a presenter (?)

  155. Not that it matters, but if it’s pre-arranged (#1), why is Adam part of the announcement ceremony or whatever it’s called and not Kris?

    ETA: Hey, NEVER DISS Alvin and the Chimpunks. ;)

  156. Jim Cantiello put up #adamlambertiadoreyou in response to Adam’s tweek to Pink. pretty funny.

    He’s hard up for an interview.

    ^THIS^

  162. Adam won’t perform on the show unless his song is big on the radio. The AMA don’t introduce new music.He and Kris will probably present. Cook had the pre show concert gig which was great last year. But he already had a radio hit all through the summer. Neither Adam or Kris do.

  163. Remember Adam has 2 songs coming out- maybe he could perform TFM & not his single….This will be after the movie premieres

  164. Remember Adam has 2 songs coming out- maybe he could perform TFM & not his single’ ¦.This will be after the movie premieres

    That would be awesome!

  165. Remember Adam has 2 songs coming out- maybe he could perform TFM & not his single’ ¦.This will be after the movie premieres

    Maybe they will save TFM for the Oscars.

  166. Lose the jacket?!
    The jacket is awesome! I want that jacket! :)
    p.s. Chilly out here (LA) this week. Must wear a jacket!

  167. If you look at last years performers…they weren’t necessarily the award winners but they were acts that were highly visible at the time and were having stuff released to radio and or fairly new albums. AMAs are much more in the present than about established acts. And they tend to lean poppish or top 40 for their presenters and performers. Just sayin.

    And…no dissing Adam’s jacket….the whole look is SUPERB!!!

  168. Remember Adam has 2 songs coming out- maybe he could perform TFM & not his single’ ¦.This will be after the movie premieres

    I don’t see how 19 could allow Adam to perform on this show since Kris was the winner. Between Adam and Kris I think I know who the more exciting live performer is but that’s not how 19 does business. Ask Clay.

  169. Maria22: LOL! Brilliant! You and halfie and hmc should have a joke-off! Wait! You are having joke-off!

    Phew. Read that a different way at first glance. Anyway, that would hardly be fair considering hwc and halfie are the same person.

  171. Aww, SueBrody, I usually love what you say, but lose that jacket?!? That jacket is Fantabulous!

  172. Tess: AMAs are much more in the present than about established acts. And they tend to lean poppish or top 40 for their presenters and performers.

    Right, and they’ve been known to break new acts, not just feature the current crop of nominees. This ain’t yer grammy’s stodgy Grammies, folks!

  173. The hair, sunglasses, jacket, the ripped shirt, they are a complete, cutting edge runway look.

    If you watch some of the current looks for men on the runway, you can tell Adam closely watches fashion trends….

  174. Not to buck historical trends re: Idol winners/runners up promo opportunities (since I do not know what the trends are/were), but if Adam has 2 singles out, might he be asked to perform at the AMAs for ratings? Seems everyone wants to see him, and as Tess says, they seem to choose “highly visible” performers. It’s certainly an exciting proposition!

  175. Phew. Read that a different way at first glance. Anyway, that would hardly be fair considering hwc and halfie are the same person.

    Slow on the uptake and I miss my opportunity for “going blind” joke. In other words, Anthro beat me.

  176. AI season 8 is over…really the last official performance was the Ford thingy. Kris, as the winner, may have some pre-determined personal appearances but I don’t think that the runner-up is under the AI contract umbrella anymore.

    If the AMAs want Adam they will get Adam, if they want Kris they will get Kris. It may not seem fair to some but it is how “real life” works.

  177. Oh, and as I posted in a different thread, Adam looks amazing in that outfit and I will be very surprised if he doesn’t get some endorsements/modeling gigs along the way.

  178. On the Jacket I just hope someone takes a good pic and does a thorough internet search of the design so when it is seen again on e-bay months from now it won’t come out that the design is some Satanic Devil worshiping emblem. ;-)

  179. halfie: Slow on the uptake and I miss my opportunity for ‘going blind’  joke. In other words, Anthro beat me.

  181. I don’t see how 19 could allow Adam to perform on this show since Kris was the winner. Between Adam and Kris I think I know who the more exciting live performer is but that’s not how 19 does business. Ask Clay.

    I think the winner is (or will be determined by) whoever sells the most music, gets the most radio play, has the most media buzz, is more critically acclaimed, and has better management.

    The AI shackles apparently were cut after the tour. RL takes over after that.

  182. AI season 8 is over’ ¦really the last official performance was the Ford thingy. Kris, as the winner, may have some pre-determined personal appearances but I don’t think that the runner-up is under the AI contract umbrella anymore.

    If the AMAs want Adam they will get Adam, if they want Kris they will get Kris. It may not seem fair to some but it is how ‘real life’  works.

    Season 8 is over but both Adam and Kris are managed by 19 and they tend to preserve the status quo and ignore “real life”.

  183. I don’t see how 19 could allow Adam to perform on this show since Kris was the winner. Between Adam and Kris I think I know who the more exciting live performer is but that’s not how 19 does business.

    Sorry, I think this is totally irrelevant. 19 is in business to make money. If the AMAs want one of their artists to perform on a nationally aired show, 19 will give them whomever they want. The only time the runner-up MUST play second string to the winner is during the post-show victory lap. That’s over.

    The jacket effing rocks.

  184. halfie :Slow on the uptake and I miss my opportunity for ‘going blind’  joke. In other words, Anthro beat me.

    Takes a big man to admit this, halfie…

  185. Maria22: LOL! Brilliant! You (anthrogeek) and halfie and hmc should have a joke-off! Wait! You are having joke-off!

    anthrogeek: Phew. Read that a different way at first glance. Anyway, that would hardly be fair considering hwc and halfie are the same person.

    Squirrely: He’s hard up for an interview.

    anthrogeek: You guys make it so easy’ ¦..

    Maria22:Your mind must still have been at the urologist’s office then

    Mine too. I’m picturing the female doctor instructing Adam to go in the bathroom and pee in this cup. She proceeds to follow him, and saying, “Oh I know how difficult it is to do this with only two hands, I’ll help you.” She tells Adam, “You can hold the cup.”

  186. If I were BestAI, I’d preemptively ban myself. Just sayin’….

    Anyway, I think the specimen was in the bag.

  187. Season 8 is over but both Adam and Kris are managed by 19 and they tend to preserve the status quo and ignore ‘real life’ .

    Natasha, Clay was six years ago and maybe they hadn’t quite figured the dynamics out. I wasn’t a fan then, but I’m positive I saw Clay on a lot more things then Ruben.

    The status quo is that Adam is highly visible, in demand and the media sweetheart right now. (And in a month? Watch out!) So if that’s the status quo ‘“ we’re good.

  188. If I were BestAI, I’d preemptively ban myself. Just sayin” ¦.

    Just because I posted that Hello Kitty house? Geesh. Some people.

  189. What can I say? I’m old school. Remember, I love Emo!Adam.

    No worries! The good thing about Adam is if you don’t like a look, just wait a day and he’ll be completely different. Just look at the ‘controversial’ NOLA pics. He looks like a completely different guy here. Emo!Adam will make a return I’m sure!

    And by the by, about Aimee Mayo, I sure hope she gets a song on the album (if not the single). Poor gal sounds demented at times. Bad, bad case of Adamitis.

  190. I wouldn’t jump the gun and assume Kris will not be on the AMAs. Heck, he may even be performing. Seems like Simon Fuller is his manager and that’s always good for some choice gigs. All anyone knows now is that Adam got the gig announcing the nominations.

  191. Mine too. I’m picturing the female doctor instructing Adam to go in the bathroom and pee in this cup. She proceeds to follow him, and saying, ‘Oh I know how difficult it is to do this with only two hands, I’ll help you.’  She tells Adam, ‘You can hold the cup.’ 

    BestAI!!!!!

    Bwaaahahahahahahaha!

  192. hwc

    Paula, Adam and Snoop Dog ‘“ that’s a pretty odd threesome.

    I’ll take celebrity trivia for a $200. What three musical celebrities have never released any real music?

    hwc Very Funny :-)

    I think they picked someone from 2 decades ago, 1 decade ago and up and coming artist, but still a weird combo.

  193. I wouldn’t jump the gun and assume Kris will not be on the AMAs. Heck, he may even be performing. Seems like Simon Fuller is his manager and that’s always good for some choice gigs. All anyone knows now is that Adam got the gig announcing the awards.

    If 19 runs true to form this announcement gig will be Adam’s share of the AMAs and Kris will have some other share of it which could be performing.

    But Kris’s share will be bigger than Adam’s share unless 19 has scrapped their protocols, which I won’t believe until I see it.

  194. Kris said in a radio interview posted here that he shares a manager with Daughtry. And Fuller manages Daughtry. I’m sure some other dude is the real manager though.

    And Kris had dinner with Fuller in London so I’m guessing that’s another indicator.

  195. No worries! The good thing about Adam is if you don’t like a look, just wait a day and he’ll be completely different. Just look at the ‘controversial’ NOLA pics. He looks like a completely different guy here. Emo!Adam will make a return I’m sure!

    And by the by, about Aimee Mayo, I sure hope she gets a song on the album (if not the single). Poor gal sounds demented at times. Bad, bad case of Adamitis.

    YES! And I want to give Aimee a big hug if they turn her single down. She is going to need some serious talking down.

    Srsly, NOBODY DISS THE HELLO KITTY.

  196. Aww, SueBrody, I usually love what you say, but lose that jacket?!? That jacket is Fantabulous!

    What can I say? I’m old school. Remember, I love Emo!Adam.

    Sorry, but have to be part of the chorus disagreeing with you on this one, the jacket rocks. Very good choice, fashion wise. Plus it really works with those jeans, the glasses and hair. He has the emo with the shirt and hair and thank @god, the lack of facial hair!

    I look forward to seeing if mj confirms if Adam will be performing, won’t flail until then because well, I don’t roll that way. The 2012 roadblock thing is a classic example of why I don’t do that. But even just with the weird gig with Paula and Snoop, still it’s ACTUAL news about Adam, so I’m excited about it.

    Oh and I have no idea one way or the other if Kris would perform as well, but no reason he’s obligated to be a part of the AMAs just because Adam is, that’s silly.

  197. On the Jacket I just hope someone takes a good pic and does a thorough internet search of the design

    Yes, I’m on the case and I must confess I’m a bit worried.

    If you look closely you’ll note that the jacket bears the symbol of the diagonal cross which as an Egyptian hieroglyph meant to divide and break into parts.

    Furthermore, the diagonal cross “X” was sometimes used as a symbol for Christ and when it appears as a closed or filled in sign “X” it becomes the cross of St. Andrew.

    And–here’s the disturbing one–“In the French hobo or gypsy sign system X means this apartment/house is a good project for a burglary.”

    Ohhh, noes!!!! Is it possible Adam doesn’t realize any of this? Should we twitter him???

  198. this tweeter can give aimee a run for her money:

    never been religious but I worship, love and adore Adam – he is my religion..

    I don’t care how long Adam takes to release his new music, I would wait till the end of eternity for him…

  199. He has the emo with the shirt and hair and thank @god, the lack of facial hair!

    What really surprises me is that no one has commented on the missing yellow Blu-Blocker sunglasses from hell….

  200. How bout the jacket in the shoot with the red shoes? THAT ROCKED.

    *we are so shallow*

    So, about the AMAs…I have the feeling that Adam will announce but not perform. Dunno about Kris. NEXT YEAR, Adam gets to perform AND he wins. :)

  201. This is what Jim C. tweeted about Adam..I don’t understand what he meant by this

    My co-worker just returned from the deli with a 1.2 lb sandwich. That’s a lot of meat. Speaking of meat, #adamlambertiadoreyou

  202. This is what Jim C. tweeted about Adam..I don’t understand what he meant by this

    My co-worker just returned from the deli with a 1.2 lb sandwich. That’s a lot of meat. Speaking of meat, #adamlambertiadoreyou

    WTF???

    In other news, still no leakage of any of Adam’s songs.

    Jim also tweeted this:

    #MichaelSlezakIAdoreYou

    Something in Cantiello’s Kool-Aid today.

  203. My co-worker just returned from the deli with a 1.2 lb sandwich. That’s a lot of meat. Speaking of meat, #adamlambertiadoreyou

    Jim C and Danny’s cousin, Joel, had something going back and forth about that.

  204. Adam announcing the AMA nominations! ADAM STORM BEGINS….FINALLY!! Good Times! Good Times!

    Kris said in a radio interview posted here that he shares a manager with Daughtry. And Fuller manages Daughtry. I’m sure some other dude is the real manager though.

    And Kris had dinner with Fuller in London so I’m guessing that’s another indicator

    From Billboard.com June 12, 2009 3:42 EDT

    ‘That tour is 60 cities in 12 weeks,’  says Daughtry’s manager, Stirling McIlwaine of 19 Entertainment.

  207. I think there is a misconception about managers and management. 19M manages Carrie, Daughtry, Cook, Adam and Kris as well as the Spice Girls, Annie Lennox, The Beckhams, a tennis player, and a few others. Simon Fuller turns over the management of these people to someone else, he is only listed as the personal manager of the Beckhams and maybe Annie Lennox.

    I am pretty sure that Simon does not get involved with the day to day operations of these people, other than the Beckhams.

  208. What really surprises me is that no one has commented on the missing yellow Blu-Blocker sunglasses from hell’ ¦.

    I was obliquely by saying I liked his sunglasses, and yes, I am VERY happy they are not the Blu Blockers on Crack that he too often wears. Of course wearing them once would have been once too often, nevermind that he seems to favour them. ick.

  209. Season 8 is over but both Adam and Kris are managed by 19 and they tend to preserve the status quo and ignore ‘real life’ .

    They cant do it even if they wanted, it would be a clear case of conflict of interest and breach of contract. They are not on idol anymore. Wasn’t basically because something like this that Clay sued 19?

    (Hugs, squeeeeeee!!, swoons, man-squeeee!!, fist-pump, yeeeeeesss,
    yeah, and AWESOME!!!!!!)

    See halfie? bowie1 is secure enough in his masculinity to man squee!

  211. jpfan: Adam won’t perform on the show unless his song is big on the radio. The AMA don’t introduce new music.He and Kris will probably present. Cook had the pre show concert gig which was great last year. But he already had a radio hit all through the summer. Neither Adam or Kris do.

    ITA.

  212. sssh, don’t remind his of those fugly blu blocker glasses.. The clothes in the Sebree shot rocked—AND he REALLY wore all those pants in that shoot…..

  213. It means Cantiello is a suck up meathead.

    She shoots, she SCORES!!!

  214. I believe in treating the jacket/symbol issue with as much seriousness as it deserves. Which is none at all.

  215. What was wrong with the yellow glasses? Why are they called blue blockers? (yellow and blue =’s green?)

  216. i can’t imagine that Adam would do the Thanksgiving parade’ ¦.just doesn’t seem like the right sort of vehicle for him

    Oh, I think that Adam would be great at the Thanksgiving parade ‘” he could do the color commentary.

    A quick list of American Idols appearing in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, but I may have missed some. Didn’t see any mention of Season 5 (2006) Taylor Hicks or Katharine McPhee. In 2006, Diana DeGarmo was on the Tutenstein float and performed “The Pharaoh’s Strut.” She was introduced as “American Idol favorite and star of Broadway’s “Hairspray.”

    2002 Justin Guarini
    2003 Clay Aiken
    2004 Fantasia
    2005 Carrie Underwood
    2006 Diana DeGarmo
    2007 Jordin Sparks
    2008 David Archuleta

  217. Really, Archie was on the Thanksgiving Day float and not Cook? I wonder why that is. I still think it’s more a Kris gig than an Adam gig….

    Still no music…

    Yeah, after having thought about it, I do not think Adam or Kris will perform. I think they will both present, however.

    No news on Adam and GaGa, right? Just keeping all my ducks in a row.

  218. I think we will see Allison at the Thanksgiving Day parade this year. Just a hunch!!

  219. And’“here’s the disturbing one’“’ In the French hobo or gypsy sign system X means this apartment/house is a good project for a burglary.’ 

    LOL LaurelG!! Just proves that you can find scandal in anything so ya might as well laugh about it!

    This is about the only area I can come up with where IMO Adam is a complete fashion fail. He seriously needs help in choosing eyewear, because with a little advice he could rock a pair of shades as well as he rocks everything else.
    But left to his own choices he looks like Roy Orbison.

  222. This may be sort of OT but I just thought of a great name for Adam’s Album…..Welcome to Planet Fierce

  223. I saw the Hollywood Adam pictures from the Just Jared article on the Headlines thread this morning!

    I was so happy to see the clean shaven, emo hair. I bet he smelled good!

    I love the jacket, and Cantiello’s giddy tweets about Kris and Adam, especially because he is a big FAN! Positive words about them are good PR!

    In Los Angeles, there’s been infomercials running forever about sunglasses called BlueBlockers that supposedly block out the glare or something. They sorta look like Adam’s yellow shades. I think Adam’s look more like RayBans. He’s always stylin’ (except when he was in NOLA last weekend).

    AI season 8 is over’ ¦really the last official performance was the Ford thingy. Kris, as the winner, may have some pre-determined personal appearances but I don’t think that the runner-up is under the AI contract umbrella anymore.

    If the AMAs want Adam they will get Adam, if they want Kris they will get Kris. It may not seem fair to some but it is how ‘real life’  works.

    Season 8 is over but both Adam and Kris are managed by 19 and they tend to preserve the status quo and ignore ‘real life’ .

    Does it seem like they’ve ignored real life so far?? In almost all respects during the tour, they were treated as co-winners. They both got 5 songs, they came up in the lift TOGETHER at the end of the concert, hell, Adam even got the last note of the whole thing. Kris of course got to perform his individual set last as was his right as the winner. Other than that? I didn’t see much difference.

    RCA has obviously been very accomodating of Adam’s choices in collaborators, yes some are the usual 19 suspects, but some aren’t. I don’t remember them insisting that Kris get a RS cover like I guess happened with Reuben after Clay’s. The only “backseats” I’ve seen Adam have to take were the press events immediately following the competition. In fact, for the GMA concert, I was surprised that Adam was included with Kris and David Cook in that concert, because they’re both winners and he wasn’t. If they had included Archie, I might have understood it a bit better. I think if Clay hadn’t sued back in the day, maybe that stuff would be true, right now 19 is in the business to make money. If they think they can make more money with Kris or Adam for an event, they’re going to do it, no matter if Kris or Adam’s feelings may get hurt.

  225. I know I’m very late with this latest update — been working all day.
    But this:

    I think there’s a pretty good chance Adam will perform on the AMAs’ ¦.

    I am BEYOND excited!!!!! I actually have chills going through me right now. How incredible and totally amazing this would be!! In the words of Randy Travis……. I’m speechless! :)

  226. I just have one thing to say, Does it seem like they’ve ignored real life so far?? In almost all respects during the tour, they were treated as co-winners. They both got 5 songs, they came up in the lift TOGETHER at the end of the concert, hell, Adam even got the last night of the whole thing.

    Tour: Fourth place, 3 solos, 1 duet; third place, 4 solos, second place, 4 solos, 1 duet; first place, 5 solos, and closes the show. Every show has a group performance at the end.

    19 didn’t insist on Adam getting a cover. RS has liked Adam during the entire season. They are the ones who sought out Adam.

    Last year both Cook and Archie did GMA, so Adam wasn’t being treated particularly special. Next year, Kris will perform with Season 9 1st & 2nd place finishers.

  227. I am so over Cantiello.

    Wait…that little joke about “not adam lambert” is upsetting people? Really? SERIOUSLY?

  228. Okay, b/c I don’t get it (sorry):

    1) Who is Adam’s manager? (Is it Simon Fuller?)
    2) Who is his main producer? Is that Rob Cavallo (sp?)
    3) Who is writing songs for him (besides Aimee, LOL, and Ryan Tedder)? Is RedOne a producer?

    I am still really lost…

    ETA: mj, I know he was kidding, but a lot of ppl are like, STFU, Jim. It’s b/c in nearly every interview, Adam still gets brought up. Even in the one today, they noted that Adam was #1 in amazon best sellers and had he pre-ordered his album. I loved Kris’s answer–I am going to have him autograph it and put it above my bed–but I am sure some Kris fans bristled. JMHO.

  229. adamaloha–Uh…I’m not a man…I’m just a big David Bowie fan! But, I do believe ‘real men… like halfie!!’ can man-squeeee!!. Come on halfie…man-squeeee, fist-pump, fist-squeeee!!!

  230. MJ-Wait’ ¦that little joke about ‘not adam lambert’  is upsetting people? Really? SERIOUSLY?

    Not me!….Just more name recognition for Adam. It’s all good. :-)

  231. Wait’ ¦that little joke about ‘not adam lambert’  is upsetting people? Really? SERIOUSLY?

    not me.

  232. 19 didn’t insist on Adam getting a cover. RS has liked Adam during the entire season. They are the ones who sought out Adam.

    Yeah, this was part of my point. Rolling Stone chose who they wanted. They weren’t told that they couldn’t have Adam unless they gave a cover to Kris. Therefore, insisting that Adam won’t be able to do events that an outside promoter wants to book him for unless Kris the winner, gets to do them also or first doesn’t hold true. I guess our mileage just varies, I really don’t see where Adam has been treated like a second-class citizen by 19 in any fashion whatsoever since the intial AI promotion ended.

  233. Wait’ ¦that little joke about ‘not adam lambert’  is upsetting people? Really? SERIOUSLY?

    For me the “speaking of meat” tweet was a little too much gratuitous name dropping. It sounded desperate.

  234. I am so over Cantiello.

    Wait’ ¦that little joke about ‘not adam lambert’  is upsetting people? Really? SERIOUSLY?

    What was the joke? Guess I missed it.

  235. Come on halfie’ ¦man-squeeee, fist-pump, fist-squeeee!!!

    Have to leave a little something to your imagination.

  236. This is about the only area I can come up with where IMO Adam is a complete fashion fail. He seriously needs help in choosing eyewear, because with a little advice he could rock a pair of shades as well as he rocks everything else.
    But left to his own choices he looks like Roy Orbison.

    Well those BluBlockers!OnCrack sure do, but the ones in that picture, thankfully do not. He was wearing these glasses, or ones like it, during the Detroit Motown visit, so I don’t know why he switched to those ugly ass yellow ones later. Fashion fail. But I like the black ones, he should stick with those.

    jpfan: Adam won’t perform on the show unless his song is big on the radio. The AMA don’t introduce new music.He and Kris will probably present. Cook had the pre show concert gig which was great last year. But he already had a radio hit all through the summer. Neither Adam or Kris do.

    I wouldn’t have thought so either, but for mj’s talking about it as even being in the realms of possibility.

  237. hmmm well still no music.. but we have him presenting awards and wearing a jacket. Well I won’t get excited about the awards unless he sings and it ends up on UTube.. :-) The Jacket not much of a fashion person.. So I really don’t care what he wears, he could walk down the street naked.. oh wait.. I would like to see that!!! :-P

    I am so over Cantiello.

    Wait’ ¦that little joke about ‘not adam lambert’  is upsetting people? Really? SERIOUSLY?

    Uh, did I miss something? Did someone get upset?

  240. What was the joke? Guess I missed it.

    I think it was SueBrody and a couple of others that didn’t like one of Cantiello’s suggestions of a title for Kris’ album -“not Adam Lambert”

  241. I wouldn’t have thought so either, but for mj’s talking about it as even being in the realms of possibility.

    I have no inside information on a confirmation. Just to make that clear–just that an Adam appearance is not outside the realm of possibility, and that Adam appearing next week to announce the AMAs is a good sign.

    It’s very possible that Adam will perform, but it could also be he’ll just present.


  242. What was the joke? Guess I missed it.

    I think it was SueBrody and a couple of others that didn’t like one of Cantiello’s suggestions of a title for Kris’ album -‘ not Adam Lambert’ 

    Yeah. I thought it was insulting to Kris and his fans. No biggie. We know Cantiello is a total Kris fantard so I am sure he was just kidding.

  243. adamaloha–That’s ok. I thought it was funny!

    4evermomof4

    The hair, sunglasses, jacket, the ripped shirt, they are a complete, cutting edge runway look.

    I agree with you. I think Adam looks fantastic here! (whispering…and the ‘facial hair’ is gone. Yeah!!)

  244. I think it was SueBrody and a couple of others that didn’t like one of Cantiello’s suggestions of a title for Kris’ album -‘ not Adam Lambert’ 

    Yeah. I thought it was insulting to Kris and his fans. No biggie. We know Cantiello is a total Kris fantard so I am sure he was just kidding.

    I thought that was more insulting to Adam than Kris. He was saying Kris was always too gracious of a winner. That wasn’t insulting at all.

  245. hi guys.sneaking on while typing an essay for school:D

    catching up but…

    I am so over Cantiello.

    Wait’ ¦that little joke about ‘not adam lambert’  is upsetting people? Really? SERIOUSLY?

    eta-although I would add a few more REALLY?s…..

    mj,excactly what I was thinking…..

  246. I’m on phone so I can’t dig this up but I posted several days and threads ago the names those that Simon Fuller manages personally from my IMDBpro account. The pro account gives people access to talent agent names, managers etc. As Tess posts, IIRC only the Beckhams are listed as being personally managed by Fuller. I’ll double check later. But Kris having dinner with the man while he is working on a 19E project in London means he’s having dinner with the big boss while on the big boss’s stomping ground. Not sure more can be read into it.

  247. I thought that was more insulting to Adam than Kris. He was saying Kris was always too gracious of a winner. That wasn’t insulting at all.

    Hrrm. Okay. Well, back to waiting for some music leakage…

  248. I thought that was more insulting to Adam than Kris. He was saying Kris was always too gracious of a winner. That wasn’t insulting at all.

    This is my impression too. I went back and read the original comment. It looked like Sue was defending Adam.

  249. I can see Adam in a Christmas parade …. if he dresses as Santa, I’ll volunteer to sit on his lap and whisper in his ear what I want to find under my tree.

    ;)

  250. Just got back from seeing Muse and U2 last night in Atlanta to find some Adam news. Excited about the AMA’s and luv seeing a new pic of Adam. It was so hard to be off the net for 2 days but I rushed home and the first thing i did was check out MJ’s site for new Adam news! Lo and behold, we have some-still no music though! By the way, U2 was the most awesome concert I have ever witnessed. Muse was good too.

  251. I just have to come in to say I love Jim Cantiello. That’s all. Carry on!

  252. I thought that was more insulting to Adam than Kris. He was saying Kris was always too gracious of a winner. That wasn’t insulting at all.

    Oh. Here I thought he was saying he should put Adam’s name in the title so that it will sell.

  253. I have no inside information on a confirmation. Just to make that clear’“just that an Adam appearance is not outside the realm of possibility, and that Adam appearing next week to announce the AMAs is a good sign.

    It’s very possible that Adam will perform, but it could also be he’ll just present.

    Ahh, that makes sense. So I’ll go back to my only expecting Adam to present and looking forward to his outfit, I hope! And not being dis-APPOINTED as I was by his YHA outfit/hair.

  254. The jacket effing rocks.

    I concur.

    On the subject of what Adam and/or Kris may do on the show, I really really hope this announcing gig isn’t like Adam and Queen on the finale, where I almost felt like that was his consolation prize for not winning.

    So, I hope Adam doesn’t just get the announcing gig, and Kris gets to perform, or something. Yeah, I know – rivalries continue. But mainly I just really want to see Adam perform/present on the AMAs!

  255. Wait’ ¦that little joke about ‘not adam lambert’  is upsetting people? Really? SERIOUSLY?

    I took this as a HUGE compliment to Adam!

  256. MJ–we’re begging you–can’t you get SOMEONE to leak SOMETHING? Maybe even the name of his single? And like 5 seconds of it? We’re not greedy or anything.

    Isn’t U2 spectacular? Very sorry I missed Muse, but maybe next time (and Snow Patrol was very good and very complimentary toward U2).

  257. They will probably have Kris appear too, if Adam performs…just like they did with season 2’s winner and runner up. Clay was nominated in two categories, and won one of them. [Clay had two hit singles on the charts, one of which debuted at number 1 on the Hot 100, in addition to his best selling album.] He performed that evening…in a duet with Ruben (who wasn’t nominated at all).

  258. Great news, more publicity for Adam.
    Saw some new pictures in headlines thread . He looks great. Long lean mile- long legs . New pictures are great .
    But where is the music ?
    No new song yet ?

  259. I can see Adam in a Christmas parade ‘ ¦. if he dresses as Santa, I’ll volunteer to sit on his lap and whisper in his ear what I want to find under my tree.

    Best comment I read ALL day. LOL

  260. I know what Adam has in the bag!

    His Lunch! When his record comes out and he finally makes some money, then he can afford to not brown bag it!!!LOLOL

    I am so over Cantiello.

    Wait’ ¦that little joke about ‘not adam lambert’  is upsetting people? Really? SERIOUSLY?

    For me (for you) I just plain don’t like Cantiello, never really did like him. His “humor” is just plain silly/stupid, his interviews are boring as all hell and I don’t look at the vids with him in it and don’t read his interviews anymore, so I am so over him, too.

  262. I’m determined not to get my hopes up about a possible AMA performance or presenting gig for either Adam or Kris. I’ve been too badly burned getting excited about rumors that ended up being a big fat nothing.

    I AM excited for the Adam, Paula and Snoop thing though! Mostly to play that fun game What Will Adam Wear Next?

  263. I just have to come in to say I love Jim Cantiello. That’s all. Carry on!

    ita:)

    PLZ LEAKKKKKKKKKKK just like a second.one.nà ºmero uno.pleeease @god ??…..,…

    adam’s pic was adamazing and flive the jacket

    ehhh I like his sunglassesykbow the fugly yellow ones;)

    u so t think Adam is going to perform…

  264. They will probably have Kris appear too, if Adam performs’ ¦just like they did with season 2’s winner and runner up. Clay was nominated in two categories, and won one of them. [Clay had two hit singles on the charts, one of which debuted at number 1 on the Hot 100, in addition to his best selling album.] He performed that evening’ ¦in a duet with Ruben (who wasn’t nominated at all).

    Well I’m back to thinking they won’t have Adam perform at all, but if they did, no reason they would have to include Kris. Vis-a-vis recent posts about it (and learning experience for me) those days of 19M ‘making’ other places have both their runner up and winner, are over it seems. And that makes sense that it would be a breach of contract.

  265. What does Adam like to eat for lunch? (If that’s what is in his little brown bag…it looks like he’s brown bagging it.) Or it’s take-out. I bet he likes Chinese. Everyone likes Chinese (or pretty much everyone).

    It’s interesting that fangirl Lyndsey hasn’t weighed in on Adam’s honor (is that what we’re calling it?) yet.

    This what makes me happiest: NO FACIAL HAIR. The Pirate has abandoned ship.

  266. Isn’t U2 spectacular? Very sorry I missed Muse, but maybe next time (and Snow Patrol was very good and very complimentary toward U2).

    OMG! Words can’t describe it. Bono sang for over an hour and a half. Closer to two hours! He sang every song I could imagine except Pride and New Year’s Day. Muse sang Starlight, SBH, Uprising, Resistance, and UNDISCLOSED DESIRES! I was so excited for UD! My son thought Adam did a better job with Starlight! yeah! dont’ know Snow Patrol!

  267. Buderschnookie

    But left to his own choices he looks like Roy Orbison.

    I will not be able to get the Roy Orbison image out of my mind now when I see Adam in sunglasses!! LOL I have to admit….he does need some help in that area.

  268. Everyone likes Chinese

    Got food poisoning 20 yrs ago from Chinese food. Lost 9lbs overnight. Haven’t had a bite since.

  269. Here’s a thought: (Hopefully nobody has suggested this as of yet LOL)
    wouldn’t it be great if Adam PREMIERED his new single on the AMA’s?
    I think that would be a great strategy since the sonf would get a lot of exposure and the next morning it would get a lot of radio airplay and BOOM! A HIT! LOL
    and yeah I agree with what someone said about him singing the TFM song at the Ocars but, I really dont think this movie will get an Oscar nomination…but still…would be awesome!

  270. When his record comes out and he finally makes some money, then he can afford to not brown bag it!!!LOLOL

    I expect that Adam has made well over $200k this year from AI, iTunes, and the Idol Tour.

  271. I really dont think this movie will get an Oscar nomination’ ¦

    The movie doesn’t have to get an Oscar for the song to get one.

  272. luv, SYTYCD is on at 8PM EST, and Glee is on at 9PM.

    I got some Chinese food today. Kind of icky. Am now throwing it away.

    I cannot even remember what Adam pic we were talking about. Was it the one with the funky jacket? See, it’s been a looooong day.

    When I come back on later tonight, THERE BETTER BE SOME SONG LEAKAGE.

  273. I really dont think this movie will get an Oscar nomination’ ¦

    The movie doesn’t have to get an Oscar for the song to get one.

    orrrrr the song could SUCK and fail epicly….:/

  274. I just have to come in to say I love Jim Cantiello. That’s all. Carry on!

    Me too:-) Rock on Jambajim! :-)

  275. luv, SYTYCD is on at 8PM EST, and Glee is on at 9PM.

    thnx.:) better finish my homework…and I can multitask during sytycd…bye 4 now…

  276. I really dont think this movie will get an Oscar nomination’ ¦

    The movie doesn’t have to get an Oscar for the song to get one.

    orrrrr the song could SUCK and fail epicly’ ¦.:/

    I really believe it’s too early to tell, the movie will suck, so the song would have to be extra good to get a nomination.

  277. I, too, went to a concert this week. I saw Pink at Madison Sq Garden and it was one of the best concerts I have seen in my life. I thought of Adam a lot and imagined how his head must have been bursting with all the theatrics and good singing.

  278. I really believe it’s too early to tell, the movie will suck, so the song would have to be extra good to get a nomination.

    They are judged independently.

  279. I’m still amazed that Adam’s song for 2012 was playing on a cul-d-sac in East LA and that none of the crew members thought to record it on their cell phone and post it on YouTube. Man, peeps are just being too straight arrow these days and not painting outside of the lines.

    Again…I am just amazed that nothing has leaked about anything…no artwork, no pictures, no sound, no 30 second snippets, no lyrics, nada, nothing. I just can’t believe it.

  280. So, I hope Adam doesn’t just get the announcing gig, and Kris gets to perform, or something. Yeah, I know ‘“ rivalries continue. But mainly I just really want to see Adam perform/present on the AMAs!

    Am I missing something. I thought this was all about Adam presenting at the AMA award. I don’t see Kris’s name in the title at all. Usually if people perform at these things, their songs have been nominated. Kris hasn’t been nominated for anything. Why would he be performing?

  281. Again’ ¦I am just amazed that nothing has leaked about anything’ ¦no artwork, no pictures, no sound, no 30 second snippets, no lyrics, nada, nothing. I just can’t believe it.

    Do you think Adam’s total committment and enthusiasm rubs off and others remain silent out of respect?

    Or maybe they all get a bonus if nothing leaks?

    Again’ ¦I am just amazed that nothing has leaked about anything’ ¦no artwork, no pictures, no sound, no 30 second snippets, no lyrics, nada, nothing. I just can’t believe it.

    I KNOW!! It almost destroys restores my faith in humanity. The one time when I want the gossips to have their ears to the ground we get NOTHING. Although it’s still a GREAT DAY we got good Adam news we weren’t even expecting. Love. It.

  283. Well those BluBlockers!OnCrack sure do, but the ones in that picture, thankfully do not. He was wearing these glasses, or ones like it, during the Detroit Motown visit, so I don’t know why he switched to those ugly ass yellow ones later. Fashion fail. But I like the black ones, he should stick with those.

    Nah, I don’t even like these from today or the Motown ones- the lenses are way too big for his face.

  284. I expect that Adam has made well over $200k this year from AI, iTunes, and the Idol Tour.

    I would bet he made more than that on the tour alone, if past years’ that have leaked info are true. But don’t forget he lives in LA and housing is expensive. That’s not a lot out here.

  285. Do you think Adam’s total committment and enthusiasm rubs off and others remain silent out of respect?

    Or maybe they all get a bonus if nothing leaks?

    I’m guessing big time confidentiality clause or something in the contracts.

    I think it is entirely possible that both Adam and Kris will appear together as well. Like Clay and Ruben, Kris and Adam are both popular with the fans and will probably be treated equally.

    I hope to God you are wrong. Even if they are both there I do NOT want to see them performing together again, ugh.

  286. Yes, you are correct musical. Clay and Ruben appeared together at the AMA’s. I think Clay sang Invisible first, then Ruben sang his song. Then Clay joined Ruben again on stage to sing a beautiful, new song by Lionel Ritchie, Jesus is Love. Clay was nominated in two categories and won “fan favorite”. I think it is entirely possible that both Adam and Kris will appear together as well. Like Clay and Ruben, Kris and Adam are both popular with the fans and will probably be treated equally.

  287. Nah, I don’t even like these from today or the Motown ones- the lenses are way too big for his face.

    Eh, too big is in and I like them. They go with his hair and outfit in being Mod.

  288. Hello,

    I’ve been reading through all the threads. We have news, a new picture, AMA, speculation on performance, continued speculation on TFM, parades, flaming headdresses and other parades. The natives are gorged.

  289. Yes, you are correct musical. Clay and Ruben appeared together at the AMA’s. I think Clay sang Invisible first, then Ruben sang his song. Then Clay joined Ruben again on stage to sing a beautiful, new song by Lionel Ritchie, Jesus is Love. Clay was nominated in two categories and won ‘fan favorite’ .

    I don’t think this was the AMAs. They don’t have a “fan favorite” category and from what I can find neither Clay or Ruben has performed. Please correct me if I am wrong.

  290. Pink and U-2, I would love to see them in concert, two of my favorites, two of the best. Pink gets better and better. “Sober” should win a grammy. U-2, love their new cd too.

    It was the AMA’s. See clip here:

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

    And Clay WAS nominated for 2 awards. Fan favorite was voted on by the public.

  292. From Wikipedia:

    Clay Aiken:

    American Music Awards

    * 2003: Won – Fan’s Choice Award
    * 2003: Nominated – Favorite Male Artist – Pop or Rock

  293. I stand corrected….here was my source….

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Music_Awards_of_2003

    This is why you never trust wiki….It showed me this one (jan) not the later one in Nov. sorry

    ETA: So the show doubled up in 2003 having a show in Jan and one in Nov and then 2004 was the following November. Wonder what percipitated the change. Also the categories seem to change year to year.

  294. Am I missing something. I thought this was all about Adam presenting at the AMA award.

    And just to be even more clear, no one said anything about Adam presenting. He is announcing the nominees next week. No other announcement has been made about his involvement in the show, though we can speculate that since he got this gig on Oct. 13, he’ll also be doing something on the awards show, itself. But, that’s still just in the speculation stage.

  295. I, too, went to a concert this week. I saw Pink at Madison Sq Garden and it was one of the best concerts I have seen in my life. I thought of Adam a lot and imagined how his head must have been bursting with all the theatrics and good singing.

    I saw her at Staples, sidewalkstory, and I kept thinking, “I hope Adam is here.” Especially when she sang “Crazy” and he had sung it the same day with Kris, in Detroit. I hope he will eventually be able to do a show like hers. Theatrics, yes, but the songs and singing are front and center! Perfect for Adam!

  296. Yes, you are correct musical. Clay and Ruben appeared together at the AMA’s. I think Clay sang Invisible first, then Ruben sang his song. Then Clay joined Ruben again on stage to sing a beautiful, new song by Lionel Ritchie, Jesus is Love. Clay was nominated in two categories and won ‘fan favorite’ .

    I don’t think this was the AMAs. They don’t have a ‘fan favorite’  category and from what I can find neither Clay or Ruben has performed. Please correct me if I am wrong.

    nvm

  297. hi guys(if anyone ‘s still here…) I’m bcak and I got my bi monthly reprt card thing and …I got straight A’s!!!!!!!!:D

    ohhhh shit never mind syrycd started goodnigt!!!

  298. PattyH, Pink sang a few of Adam’s favorites: Bohemian Rhapsody, Crazy, and Led Zeppelin. I almost felt as if she “stole” them from Adam, but, of course, they are not his songs.

    The NY press gave her excellent reviews and she tweeted this morning that she could almost cry of happiness. That’s when Adam responded with his tweet that he adored her.

  299. Am I missing something. I thought this was all about Adam presenting at the AMA award. I don’t see Kris’s name in the title at all. Usually if people perform at these things, their songs have been nominated. Kris hasn’t been nominated for anything. Why would he be performing?

    The performers dont have to nominated to perform I think, since nomination requires a certain deadline to have had music (hit singles) out many months prior..usually the artists who perform are those that have current radio hits or are nominated and I have also seen performers debut songs on these type of award shows…or present an award at the very least…hopefully they will at least let him perform…
    to sidewalkstory: yes you are right…hopefully the song will be a hit :)

  300. am I mistaken or is there a movie soundtrack category on the AMA’s?

    On the Jacket I just hope someone takes a good pic and does a thorough internet search of the design so when it is seen again on e-bay months from now it won’t come out that the design is some Satanic Devil worshiping emblem.

    Yes, this time on the inside of the sleeve lining if you shine an infrared light on it during the full moon…

    AI season 8 is over’ ¦really the last official performance was the Ford thingy. Kris, as the winner, may have some pre-determined personal appearances but I don’t think that the runner-up is under the AI contract umbrella anymore.

    If the AMAs want Adam they will get Adam, if they want Kris they will get Kris. It may not seem fair to some but it is how ‘real life’  works.

    Season 8 is over but both Adam and Kris are managed by 19 and they tend to preserve the status quo and ignore ‘real life’ . ”

    OMG, I hope not! Is that what happened with the 2 Davids last year ?

    On the Jacket I just hope someone takes a good pic and does a thorough internet search of the design

    Yes, I’m on the case and I must confess I’m a bit worried.

    If you look closely you’ll note that the jacket bears the symbol of the diagonal cross which as an Egyptian hieroglyph meant to divide and break into parts.

    Furthermore, the diagonal cross ‘X’  was sometimes used as a symbol for Christ and when it appears as a closed or filled in sign ‘X’  it becomes the cross of St. Andrew.

    And’“here’s the disturbing one’“’ In the French hobo or gypsy sign system X means this apartment/house is a good project for a burglary.’ 

    Ohhh, noes!!!! Is it possible Adam doesn’t realize any of this? Should we twitter him???

    ROTFLMAO!!!

  306. Yay, luv! Are you watching SYTYCD? It’s Vegas week, baby!

    I think Adam will probably be one of the presenters at the AMAs (else, why have him announce the nominees)? That doesn’t mean he is going to sing (one hopes) but I can’t imagine he won’t be there.

    ETA: An Adam Hello Kitty House! Be still, my heart.

  307. Nice find on the pic, 4evermomof4!
    Loving the stripe-y shirt…

  308. Hi everyone,

    I must FAIL in Luv’s eyes once more … and give a lone, unpopular verdict on the jacket. It is horrendous!!! It gives him a barrel torso on stick legs appearance and the arrows create an optical illusion that brings his shoulders forward making him look all hunched over.

    Ducking and running awaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay now.

    But the AMA thing is very good news…

  309. Wikipedia says:

    American Music Award for Favorite Soundtracks

    Bodyguard with Whitney Houston won

    Me too, I guess people’s perception of humor varies …

    this interview is obviously recent cause the article is dated today:

    http://www.exploreli.com/kids/kidsday-talks-with-idol-s-adam-lambert-1.1507971?localLinksEnabled=false

    People take old stuff and put new dates on it, it happens. This is very old, like right after the show when they were visiting NY for the press rounds, old. That’s Adam’s outfit for when he visited VH1, the children’s hospital and Kelly and Regis.

  315. am I mistaken or is there a movie soundtrack category on the AMA’s?

    Yes, there is an AMA category for the favorite soundtrack album.

  316. GRRRRRR SOOOOOO MAD RIGHT NOW!!!!! those ppl got to talk to Adam.and there like my age.well one of them.I’m like seeing red right now .GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.why them????whhyyyyyyy???!!!!! and really Adam? “you are so smart”??!!!! really???!!!!! D;

    I coul rant on and on but just SO MAAAAD(even thought it doesn’t make sense)

    GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

    Everyone is aware that Adam or any of the Idols from season 8 will not be eligible for AMA until next year right!

    Oh dhunken you made me laugh…..considering that Adam doesn’t have a single piece of original music out there yet I don’t know how he could win anything….unless all the voters are clairvoyant!! You are too funny!

  319. another possible writer for Adam:

    Matt Mahaffey:
    MATT: I guess i could have friends play on the new album, it just hasn’t arisen yet….I’m more interested in working with certain studios/rooms than with people. I’m supposed to write with Adam Lambert from American Idol at some point, how strange will that sound?!

  320. We should watch ET tomorrow as they will be discussing 2012 movie to see if there is any news.

  321. Luv. The interviewers did great but I have no doubt that you would have done a better job. Yes, I am trying to get back into your good books again but it is true and I’m betting that every one here would agree.

  322. Been catching up for what feels like forever and have to chime in now.

    Whoooo Hooooooo!!! Something that smacks of real news, not music, but something to look forward to.

    This caught my eye:

    Natasha
    October 7, 2009 at 2:15 pm
    Now that is an’ ¦interesting combination.

    Adam may wind up doing a lot of the talking.”

    Indeed! I’m curious to see who maintains the most sobriety. Paula or Snoop Dogg.

    halfie, your song. Words escape me.

    Just no to the Macy’s parade thing, IMO.

  323. I’m supposed to write with Adam Lambert from American Idol at some point, how strange will that sound?!

    You gotta wonder about some of these writing sessions. They go into a room with a complete stranger who might not know, like or even appreciate them/their work. And they’re supposed to come out with something good. Doesn’t sound ideal to me. No wonder there are so many cookie cutter songs out there. With a few hours and a stranger how could you do any better?

  324. luvadamlambert, Congratulations! Woo! Straight “As”! Now, as a mom of three, I would have to say you have excellent leverage right now in winning the battle of why Adam is not interferring with your school work! And why you should be allowed to be on MJ’s as much as you want!

    Yes! THIS. All of it.

    Hello,

    I’ve been reading through all the threads. We have news, a new picture, AMA, speculation on performance, continued speculation on TFM, parades, flaming headdresses and other parades. The natives are gorged.”

    But dessert has not been served yet. All we need is music

  327. I believe the silence is due to extremely tight confidentiality contracts

  328. I believe the silence is due to extremely tight confidentiality contracts

    Either that, or it’s because a black hole has formed around him and nothing can escape his gravitational pull. When his single is finally released, it will simply be called “Naked Singularity”. We will see only a bright light and that will be all. No event horizon, nothing…just a sparkly light. The music is all imaginary.

  329. I believe the silence is due to extremely tight confidentiality contracts

    I think Adam is a dream.

  330. and give a lone, unpopular verdict on the jacket. It is horrendous!!! It gives him a barrel torso on stick legs appearance and the arrows create an optical illusion that brings his shoulders forward making him look all hunched over.

    Yay, I am not alone in this view! EMO!ADAM FTW!!! :)

  331. We should watch ET tomorrow as they will be discussing 2012 movie to see if there is any news.

    I’ll see if I can make time for it. *snerk*

    Confidentiality is no longer acceptable. The Adamaholics DEMAND INFORMATION!!!

    Or, ya know, whatsevah.

  332. Either that, or it’s because a black hole has formed around him and nothing can escape his gravitational pull. When his single is finally released, it will simply be called ‘Naked Singularity’ . We will see only a bright light and that will be all. No event horizon, nothing’ ¦just a sparkly light. The music is all imaginary.

    But will it be an up, down, charm, strange, top, and bottom? Seeing as it’s Adam, I’ll say all, but bottom.

  333. When his single is finally released, it will simply be called ‘Naked Singularity’ .

    Putting aside my first thought …. that title works for me.

  334. alaadam – glad you had a great time at the concert last night. Thought you will find this amusing that the guy who will be painting my house next week is a Bono look-alike. He was hired yesterday as a Bono impersonator, complete with a bodyguard and riding in a limousine. He is British so has the right accent too. A lot of people reported Bono sightings around Atlanta and did not know any better.

    Wait till I tell my neighbors Bono is painting my house!

    Oh, love the jacket. Adam looks great with whatever he is wearing. And like everyone else, keeping my fingers crossed he gets to present and/or perform at the AMA.

    Luv – congratulations! We are very proud of you!

  335. “But will it be an up, down, charm, strange, top, and bottom? Seeing as it’s Adam, I’ll say all, but bottom.”

    I would also exclude the “down” quarks…but then again maybe not. Yes, you’re right only the “bottom” quarks are excluded. All the other “flavors” definitely apply.

  336. Am I missing something. I thought this was all about Adam presenting at the AMA award. I don’t see Kris’s name in the title at all. Usually if people perform at these things, their songs have been nominated. Kris hasn’t been nominated for anything. Why would he be performing?

    Yeah – this was just about my paranoia and “don’t get overly excited” vibe coming in to the equation.

  337. Okay, people.

    No name of single.
    No leak of single.
    No name of album.
    No pics of album.
    No pics of him with ANYONE.
    No interviews.
    No tweets about himself, last Saturday notwithstanding.
    No nada.

    I
    CANNOT
    HANDLE
    THIS
    ANYMORE!!!

    *sob*
    *hold me*

  338. Season 8 is over but both Adam and Kris are managed by 19 and they tend to preserve the status quo and ignore ‘real life’ . ‘ 

    I tend to agree with whoever posted earlier about how any of these gigs will likely fall into several categories:

    1. If it’s an “AI-related” gig, then they’ll likely preserve the winner, runner-up status because that’s just the way “it works”.

    2. If it’s not, then all bets are off, and either one of them can be offered and accept a job.

    Based on the previous AI / AMA relationships, I would be inclined to believe this falls into group 1, but then I don’t really know the details about what is usually an “AI-related” gig – and it might change each year based on the circumstances. Also, I think gigs are far less likely to be “AI-related” the further we get from the actual season finale.

  339. I’m not sure what picture you guys are referring to. But I think I must be like a “mom” kind of Adam fan. Anything about him is pretty much acceptable (adorable) to me or I can explain anything a little iffy away. Yay for Adam and Paula. I love them both.

  340. Mary, if it was 1, then why would ADAM make the announcements and not Kris?

  341. Mary, if it was 1, then why would ADAM make the announcements and not Kris?

    Good point.

    So, I think my lack of more Adam news the last few days, plus increasing craziness over said lack of info has just made me over think this whole thing to a ridiculous degree. In the end, I’d just LOVE it if he actually got to perform on the AMA’s, and I’d be very excited even if it was just presenting. For now, we’ll just have to wait and see :-)

  344. suebrody: Mary, if it was 1, then why would ADAM make the announcements and not Kris?

    Announcing the AMA nominees is not exactly an A-List gig. I had to “wiki” one of last year’s nominees spokepeople because I did know who she was. So it probably is a job for the #2 guy vs. the winner.

    Two more rational, possible reasons it’s Adam not Kris:

    1. It is on 10/13/09 — 2 days before Kris needs to wrap his album and he is not available. Adam lives just down the street so no big deal to show up and do the event.

    2. It is in the middle of Adam’s first single promotion. MY guess is it is part of the 19R Adam PR plan. (YES, THEY WILL TELL US SOME DAY THEY REALLY WILL!!)

    THE FOLLOWING STATEMENTS ARE MADE ONLY AS A JOKE — DO NOT QUOTE SECTIONS WITHOUT THIS DISCLOSURE — IT IS A JOKE

    Or maybe, they needed someone who was a good spokesperson. Sorry, I love Kris but he is not exactly the best MC in the world.

    Adam, Paula and Snoop are going to be kind of interesting because 2 of them can’t utter a complete sentence.

    But can you picture Kris, Paula and Snoop announcing the awards? If they anounced that, I’d say just shoot me now. But it would be the most entertaining awards announcement in history.

    (Excuse the typos, I am on a plane and it is kind of bumpy tonight!)

    I believe the silence is due to extremely tight confidentiality contracts

    Either that, or it’s because a black hole has formed around him and nothing can escape his gravitational pull. When his single is finally released, it will simply be called ‘Naked Singularity’ . We will see only a bright light and that will be all. No event horizon, nothing’ ¦just a sparkly light. The music is all imaginary.

    Makes sense, seeing as he is the glittery alien…

  362. dhunken, thanks for the pep talk. I still listen to Adam’s music daily on my iPod but I was starting to feel a little burned out on the “debut single” excitement.

    Your entusiasm and variety of song choices (demonstrating his versatility) pulled me out of it though. You reminded me that I need to add “Is Anybody Listening” back into my current faves playlist. :)

    OK, so I changed a couple of words, but really now — is anybody listening?

    ETA: yes, I am on a long flight and bored, bored, bored.

  367. I don’t see how 19 could allow Adam to perform on this show since Kris was the winner. Between Adam and Kris I think I know who the more exciting live performer is but that’s not how 19 does business.

    Sorry, I think this is totally irrelevant. 19 is in business to make money. If the AMAs want one of their artists to perform on a nationally aired show, 19 will give them whomever they want. The only time the runner-up MUST play second string to the winner is during the post-show victory lap. That’s over.

    If the theory of Kris has to be the first pick just because he’s the winner is right, then why 19E/M/R let Adam recording TFM for 2012. Sony has so many artists on their hand and 19 artists are mostly Sony artists, so when 2012 producers wants Adam to sing TFM, why they let them have Adam.. Kris is the winner… Kris should’ve recorded that song.. but NOPE.. Emerich wanted Adam.. Emerich got Adam sing TFM. And that time they’re just starting the summer tour (I believed when they hit the 3rd venue which was LA and Adam went to the studio recording the song).

    As much as I like seeing them both together, as long as they’re not singing together.. nope their singing is not match made in heaven.. no more Kradam please.. they both need to grow and persue their career separately

    Yep. They’ll probably have Kris present on the show which is a much bigger deal.

    Not sure about this, wouldn’t we have heard already if it’s such a big deal ?

  374. I don’t think Simon Fuller actually manage anyone — he has a big team that actually manages the talent — but he is listed as artist manager for a number of Idol alum — Carrie, David Cook and Chris Daughtry.

    In today’s interview, Kris said he shared a manager with Chris Daughtry — based on the context of working with Chris, I believe that he means Daughtry’s real day-to-day manager, Stirling McIlwaine from 19M. Stirling McIlwaine also managed Jordin (and may still manage her — I think.)

    And besides we’re running low on crumbs.

    Jordin is currently managed by the Jonas Brother’s manager/father.

    Well that would be cool for Kris if it happened, so I’d be happy for him if it did.

  377. Before a fanwar breaks out over who’s going to perform on the AMA, don’t you think we need to see if their singles sell before you start picking out a plaid or leather tux. If one get’s to perform and the other don’t, let’s not lose our freaking minds. The main thing is that guys make music that sell, so next year they could possibly be up for some of these awards. You never know, both might be asked to perform. I just hope if they are asked, please don’t make them sing together. I don’t think I could digest another lovely duet between those two. Their voices simply don’t blend well together, nor trading verses back and forth.

  378. Thanks, Truthiness. I thought that Jordin might not be managed by Stirling — but I really don’t follow her at all.

    Yep. They’ll probably have Kris present on the show which is a much bigger deal.

    1. My “A List” comment was a crude attempt at a joke.

    2. I predicted that both Kris and Adam would be invited to be on the show — as presenters, not performers. AI folks are really popular on the AMA’s and ABC is interested in ratings/$. It was a big complement to David Cook to invite him to perform on last year’s AMA pre-show.

    I agree……the umbilical cord needs to be severed. I hope that 19 understands that. I know Kris fans want Adam to walk two steps behind Kris because he is the winner but it doesn’t work that way. Adam always outshines Kris. So let these two go and further their own careers. END TO KRADAM PLEASE

  388. Kris benefits being with Adam because Adam ´s fans will be there.

    I think he’s got some fans of his own, LOL.

  389. I felt if the friendship is real, then it’s OK to sing together.

  390. I don’t think of “Kradam” as meaning the two men are performing (on stage) together, or even as professionally inseparable so where one goes, the other must. Many of us….creative fans like seeing them together because it’s fun for us to see them interact, but we are aware that their styles and voices don’t mesh well. That duet they did at Ford – they never sang together, never harmonized.

    Kradam means their friendship – that they became so close despite their different backgrounds, and that they seem so supportive of each other. That’s the thing we don’t want to end, no matter what happens with their careers and personal lives.

    It also means, well, something ELSE to those creative fans who invented the term, but that’s a pure fantasy that has nothing to do with real life. And even *we* assume they will have very different career paths in those fantasies.

  391. Kradam means their friendship ‘“ that they became so close despite their different backgrounds, and that they seem so supportive of each other. That’s the thing we don’t want to end, no matter what happens with their careers and personal lives.

    I really hope it doesn’t, I love their friendship

  392. I don’t think it’s people hating Kris, because how could you hate such a sweet guy. It’s just Adam is such “rock star”, that he needs his own spotlight without Kradam or Kradison tagging alone. I just don’t need to see duets between these, to remind us that they are friends or were on idol. We all know that, so let these guys seperate and create their own mark in the music industry. I pray that no one gets the bright idea for them to tour together, that would be so wrong.

  393. LOL at all the KA & AL fans that want the comparisons to stop.

    (Sorry. I know many of you are Kradam’s.)
    Enough of riding on a coat tail.

    I hate to break it to all you newbies here, but the it never stops. Look at David Cook. Everytime there is an article (one just announcing a concert comes to mind) DA’s fans pounce. I also seen KA articles that don’t even mention AL and somehow it always becomes about AL.

    Kris benefits being with Adam because Adam ´s fans will be there.

    I think he’s got some fans of his own, LOL.

    True, maybe KA will benefit from being with AL but I agree KA has his own fans. Everyone is always talking about wanting them to go their own path, but as long as “fans” use both of their names, there will be comparisons. They will always be compared to ALL the other idol participants not just the ones from their year.

    Last year was the first year I became invested in Idol and soley because of David Cook. We heard all the same things that AL fans are now saying about KA. DC can’t make it without DA. DA was the “true winner”. blah blah blah. Wait until the sales numbers come out before you make judgements. Everyone might be suprised when all do well or fail. Not everyone charts the same path. I only hope for Kris’ sake that the “he will benefit from AL being with him” crowd gives it a rest. No one knows what to expect from any of them. Just my opinion from someone that has seen this before.

    ETA: As to the Kris fans jumping on that if AL is there Kris should be too, that goes both ways. Last year DC got the pre-show for the AMA’s and DA’s fans went balistic.

    ETA: ‘”Enough of riding on a coat tail.” I hate this. No one is riding anyone’s coat tail. They are both riding the Idol coat tail. Until their own music comes out and is great or is sorry, there is no coat tail to ride.

  394. Maybe I nodded off while I was reading all these posts, but I didn’t see any “Kris hate” here. Not sure where that came from. What I did see were a few posts from peeps who thought Kris should be presenting at the AMA’s (& not Adam) because he was the winner. Some posters disagreed with that. That doesn’t translate to hate IMO.

    I’m happy with any news of Adam. It’s been quiet for a few weeks but I feel in my bones that things are a’changin’. And I’m ready.

  395. Could someone smarter than me explain the Kris hatred? Is it because they blame him for taking the AI title that rightfully belongs to Adam? Is it because Adam’s association with Kris associates Adam with the stigma of an illegitimate/karaoke/reality show singing contest that he didn’t even win?
    Ok, I get that some people don’t hate Kris. Some just want Adam to be free to sing all by himself and let his vocals fly. I want a duet-free album myself.
    However, I know I’m not imagining the venom in some of the Kris comments.

    The duets (Allison or Kris) and joint interviews are just plain fun. They never fail to make me smile, if not laugh out loud.

    h

  396. I guess I am the only one who liked the Adam/Kris duet. I think their voices blend nicely, and I also think Adam has such versatility that he could duet with just about anyone and have it sound pretty good.

    Having said this, it is probably in both their best interests to nix any “duo” things while they are trying to establish themselves outside the Idol bubble. And I think they will both do just fine.

    edited to add: I don’t think there is wide-spread Kris “hatred.” At least I certainly hope not. He is such a nice guy, even if you don’t care for his music, how could you not like him???

    Make it three. I personally thought it was really cool.

  402. I hate to break it to all you newbies here, but the it never stops.

    Ugh, this makes me sad. I don’t want it to be true, but history doesn’t lie.

    Um, yes and no. The Davids were only on last season, and the whole David vs. David thing, as if they were the only two in the competition, was played up big time most of the season. But I think for other idols, further removed from their competition years, it is possible for these comparisons to ease up. I think people outside the AI bubble probably couldn’t even tell you who the competition was on the seasons that Daughtery, JHud, Jordin, were on. There is really not a large enough sample size to make all these absolute predictions based on 8 seasons. Time will tell.

    Also, I read this whole thread and have no idea what is being interpreted as “Kris hate”. I don’t get it.

  403. They really need to release SOMETHING. It’s like they want to put Adam in the Dick Cheney Hall of Fame For Amazing Lack Of Whereabouts or News of Any Kind.

    Sheesh.

  404. I don’t think of ‘Kradam’  as meaning the two men are performing (on stage) together, or even as professionally inseparable so where one goes, the other must. Many of us’ ¦.creative fans like seeing them together because it’s fun for us to see them interact, but we are aware that their styles and voices don’t mesh well. That duet they did at Ford ‘“ they never sang together, never harmonized.

    ITA – I love Kradam – but think of it purely as a friendship, rather than any sort of musical collaboration with the two of them. I would LOVE if they were both on the AMA’s and presented together – maybe some witty cute banter, etc. I would be in heaven!

    But singing together…not so much. Their styles are so unique and different, and imo do not meld well together. Adam and Allison, otoh = match made in heaven – as evidenced by the tour. Kris and Adam = not so much.

  405. Did anyone else notice the half cuff/glove on Adams right hand in the blazer photo of him leaving the doctor?
    I think I see new tattoos on his hand? Am I mistaken?
    The glove is not a leather one like he wore on tour or even on GMA, its like a black soft cast or something and I see ink on his fingers but the picture is not clear enough to enlarge.
    Am I crazy?
    http://justjared.buzznet.com/2009/10/07/adam-lambert-tokio-hotel/

  406. I’m probably not the best judge of this as an Adam fan, but not sure I see any Kris hate here either. I’ve noticed in Kris threads, if Adam gets mentioned it becomes “Why is everything about Adam?” Here, a completely Adam thread about a cool opportunity he has been offered becomes “If Adam gets to do it, so does Kris!” *shrugs*

    I like their personal relationship but frankly see them professionally on completely different media trajectories. They are two different artists going for completely different markets, and one of them is clearly considered a “celebrity” and will get different opportunities. Maybe presenting or performing at the AMAs isn’t it (who knows at this point), but certain magazine covers, musical performances and other public appearances will be strictly Adam’s – having very little to do with the “Idol Runner-Up” title and much more to do with “the media darling with crazy vocals that just happens to have been on Season 8 Idol.”

  407. His “gloves” are the long sleeves of his sweater, with his thumbs stuck through holes in the cuff.

    I can’t see any ink on his fingers, but I do see several rings.

  408. You are right – rings – I just got a better look at the original pix – thanks

  409. Also, I read this whole thread and have no idea what is being interpreted as ‘Kris hate’ . I don’t get it.

    Srsly- you want to see hate go see how Rickey’s site is being taken over by trolls. Saying someone is riding someones coattails is an opinion. Saying someone is a self hating Jew is hating.

  410. Mandalay, thank you for that link. I’ve never seen it before and it was lovely. The sad thing is, all four of them sing better than the guy who won. I remember loving Bucky’s gravely country-rock voice and how smooth Elliot was.

  411. Srsly- you want to see hate go see how Rickey’s site is being taken over by trolls.

    No thanks- apparently I DO have boundaries.

  412. I still listen to Adam’s music daily on my iPod but I was starting to feel a little burned out on the ‘debut single’  excitement.

    I know what you mean. I think it’s the continuous expectations that we’ll be getting more info than we have been – it can really drive you a little crazy (and by you, I mean me). You just get burned out after a little while expecting something that isn’t coming (yet). And I am so bad at this whole patience thing, which isn’t helping :-)

    If one get’s to perform and the other don’t, let’s not lose our freaking minds. The main thing is that guys make music that sell, so next year they could possibly be up for some of these awards.

    Voice of reason. Thank you, bridgette12!

  413. I’m probably not the best judge of this as an Adam fan, but not sure I see any Kris hate here either. I’ve noticed in Kris threads, if Adam gets mentioned it becomes ‘Why is everything about Adam?’ 

    I see that a lot too, it’s silly. It’s like his name can’t be mentioned for fear the shear typing of it would overshadow everything else that was written about Kris, unless of course the name is being brought to scorn. Eh, by next season Adam and Kris can be mentioned in harmony like the winners and runners up of the past – kumbaya everybody kumbaya

  414. But singing together’ ¦not so much. Their styles are so unique

    Kris is unique?

  415. Re Rickey’s site- Once Kris openly dissed Rickey’s site in a recent interview, it is becoming clear that Rickey’s site is becoming increasing marginalized and less relative, so trolls will begin to congregate there, as they are on VFTW.

    Sadly, this is of his own doing.

  416. I agree. I am afraid to post in the Kris threads (tho I did this morning…eek), b/c I expect this “WHO MADE THIS ABOUT ADAM” avalanche. Peep, I can like BOTH OF THEM.

    I thought they sounded good together singing Crazy at the Ford event, NOT on the finale (I mean, you had QUEEN with ADAM, his Idols, ha ha). The song was not suited to Kris’s range, but it was still cute to see them both together. BTW, the fan video with Kradam to LLWD was really cute, and now makes me want to buy the single. (Actually, I tried to buy it last night, but I got the error message, Do you want to buy it again?) WTF?

    Oh, the peeps at VFTW gave me a shout out on their radio show, after I tweeted Felicia Barton that I hoped she did well on their program but that they were SOBs. They tweeted me back as the SOBS of VFTW. Am I famous yet? Am I Aimee Mayo? :)

    BTW, I woke up this morning w/ a slow tune in my head sung by Adam. Then others were saying, No, that doesn’t sound like Adam. This is getting ridiculous! ;)

  417. Once Kris openly dissed Rickey’s site in a recent interview,

    He did? Which interview? Good for Kris cause Rickey really threw him under the bus just for hits.

  418. Sadly, this is of his own doing.

    ITA – I can’t say it enough that what he did to Kris (and by that I mean PERSONALLY tweeting him about his “concerns” over the album) was just a really shitty thing to do.

    Sure, you have a website to get hits and increase traffic, so you want to stir the pot a little, get the buzz, get people talking – but don’t be so irresponsible and rude as to personally tweet Kris with that rubbish. JMO, of course. I never went to Rickey’s before, so I’m not heavily invested either way.

  419. He did? Which interview? Good for Kris cause Rickey really threw him under the bus just for hits.

    The Slezak one posted yesterday by MJ. Should be under the “Kris Allen Ready to Name his Album” thread.

  420. Good thing I said, “I’m ducking now.”
    I know that there will be a lot of things thrown my way.
    I’m sorry if people read me wrongly. First of all, English is my 2nd language; no I take it back. It ranks the lowest.

    I don’t hate Kris. I’ve never said that. I have a lot of his songs including “Live Like We’re Dying” on my ipod.

    During the show I felt sorry for Kris and I admired him for sticking in there and doing his best. For me I think Adam is a mile better than the rest. I didn’t vote for anyone because I couldn’t from overseas.

    I like all kinds of music, all kinds of genre- old ones who composed and decomposed, opera, cross over popera down to Miley and rap.

    How can I hate Kris for making music. Music is my first love, and my last.

    Whenever I voice my opinion that I prefer Adam to Kris I get these: hatred, sore loser and bitterbert.

    Again, I don’t hate anybody. I’m not a sore/sour loser because I didn’t vote. And Adam’s humanity, humility and dignity that he showed in the interview right after the finale erased all of bitterness people had. Adam makes me proud of what he’s accomplished so far, so what to be bitter about.

    Very sorry, people for this long rant. You don’t know how long I spent writing this. I’ll go back to lurk’s mode- ladylurkslot – again.
    LOVE AND PEACE
    CIAO :)

    Aww…this isn’t a rant, asifclueless! It’s a lovely post. Please delurk more often. :) AND your English is impeccable. *hugs*

  422. I can see if I can find the Kris interview-it was a radio interview and he really went into it about how Rickey tweeted that his album was a mess.

    IMO, Kris is not unique in the industry, but is unique from Adam.
    Ilike Kris as a person, but he and Adam need to go their separate ways for each of their career’s sakes. I personally believe it does not benefit either of them anyone to be singing and/or appearing together, ’cause peeps begin dredging up the ‘who should have won Idol discussion’ whenever they are together.

    And, I believe the Kradam fanfic stuff is just silly and inappropriate as well…

    YMMV

  423. “I like their personal relationship but frankly see them professionally on completely different media trajectories. They are two different artists going for completely different markets, and one of them is clearly considered a ‘celebrity’  and will get different opportunities.

    Rowe, I could not have put this any better. And I don’t ever need to see the two of them in a duet together again. Their voices do not mesh well together, IMO.

    mandalay, the Patience vid was was awesome. I’ve been listening to the original when the waiting becomes frustrating, but those guys did an excellent job with that song. I’ll go back to it, I’m sure.

  424. He did? Which interview? Good for Kris cause Rickey really threw him under the bus just for hits.

    The Slezak one posted yesterday by MJ. Should be under the ‘Kris Allen Ready to Name his Album’  thread

    Thanks Mary102 I did read that yesterday. Rickey is an idiot.

  425. I think one of the main issues that occurs after the results of a reality singing competition is that many people have this built in notion that, like an athletic event, there can be only one winner. And because of their personal definition of winner they cannot get beyond the “truism” that winner takes all.

    Therefore, they need continual reassurance that the “winner” is reaping all the spoils and that the “loosers” aren’t overshawdowing the winners victory. This is a programmed response and very hard to overcome, especially for those that are pretty vested in the winner.

    My Dad was like this; you either win or you loose. Totally black and white. But the thing is…that winning is a momentary thing. It only lasts for the time it takes for somebody somewhere to “better” the winner at anything. And people, like my Dad, are always pointing out “but he won” and the loosers shouldn’t be given any chances to be better than him. And it isn’t about the person….it is all about the title, the title is the paramount issue.

    Now throw into the mix those people who think the winner won unfairly or didn’t deserve to win and their winner/looser mentality is all about “proving” that the win was bogus. They will spend ALL OF THEIR ENERGY making sure that everyone knows the win was tainted.

    Luckily, for most of us, we understand that even in a competition there are always shades of gray…and that results are often just the stars aligning in a certain way for a fraction of a second that crowned the winner and that once the competition is over it’s over and real life begins again with all its uncertainties and unanswerables. We are the real winners because we can see, how in the grand scheme of things, winning isn’t the be-all or end-all.

  426. And, I believe the Kradam fanfic stuff is just silly and inappropriate as well’ ¦

    You just opened a can of worms for me. I HATE that shit. And I do mean shit. Yesterday people were talking about the Tokio Hotel twitter by Adam on another site and someone started posting these photoshopped pics of the Kaulitz BROTHERS in compromising positions with each other. SICK. This is the epitome of OTT fans, and the reason why I don’t join any fan sites.

  427. austinmidwife, I agree about the duets. I just didn’t enjoy either of them at all. Their vocal stylings and ranges are just too different to complement one another.

    As for Rickey, on rare occasions I pop over there but, unlike MJs, I feel nothing but hostility there in the comments. Backbiting, hating, spiteful postings that really contribute nothing. At MJs, there may be debate and the occasional flare-up, but mostly intelligent discourse about Idol news and speculation. As I’ve said before (but maybe a little more eloquently LOL), I can’t see spending my precious time on reading crap negativity. Glad Kris got in his own dig. That whole fiasco was unconscionable IMO.

  428. Tess, so very true! My own husband is a sports fanatic with a concept of only winner vs. loser. In his opinion “2nd place is 1st loser.” It’s ingrained in so many people that winner takes all and everything else is complete failure.

    We are the real winners because we can see, how in the grand scheme of things, winning isn’t the be-all or end-all.

    Agreed. But there are many who would say we are just rationalizing away our loss by thinking this way. LOL

  429. I can’t figure out how this AMA thread is now a discussion of KrAdam.
    I am a huge Adam fan. I am in awe of the huge and rare talent that Adam has as a singer and a performer. For me, Adam can stand on his own. No need to bring anyone else into the equation.

  430. On another topic, I can’t believe Adam is still #4 on Amazon after there is nada, nothing, squat, zero about his new music.

    Wow, what is going to happen when he actually DOES release some music….

    Amazing to me, too. It bodes well for the future!

  433. Jim C tweet:

    It’s cruel and unusual punishment to have a top secret song stuck in your head. I can’t sing it or hum it or anything. Bahhhh!

    Kris or Adam? Discuss

    Boo. It’s got to be kris because of his MTV article:
    “dropped a few hints about the top-secret song he co-wrote with the ‘Idol’  winner over the summer”

  434. Best tweet of the day for me so far:

    Fianlly I need an unscrupulous doctor to put me into a medically induced coma until @adamlambert ‘s single comes out. I can’t take waiting anymore. 1 minute ago from web

  435. Jim C tweet:

    It’s cruel and unusual punishment to have a top secret song stuck in your head. I can’t sing it or hum it or anything. Bahhhh!

    Kris or Adam? Discuss

    Kris.

  436. Slow news day again if we’re discussing Jim C’s daydream in two diff threads, lol.

  437. I don’t like the hateful comments and fanwarring that Rickey allows on his site. I don’t have a problem with him posting the good and bad on the idols, although I think Danny and Adam get unfairly treated. I am sure there is bad stuff and dumb comments made by all the idols, they are all human. I noticed the rumors about idols other than Danny or Adam don’t tend to get posted. It is the same on VFTW. VFTW and Rickey both have made statements indicating love for Kris. I think it is weird the VFTW loves posting pictures of the gay contestants like Dave Hernandez stripper pictures and Adam’s drag and kissing pictures when the guy who runs the site is gay. I think the Jim C’s tweet is probably about one of Kris’s songs, although I wish it was about Adam’s song.

  438. I can’t figure out how this AMA thread is now a discussion of KrAdam.
    I am a huge Adam fan. I am in awe of the huge and rare talent that Adam has as a singer and a performer. For me, Adam can stand on his own. No need to bring anyone else into the equation.

    Well, I think we had entered the speculation phase of: who will be doing what else wrt the AMA’s – as in, will either Adam or Kris (or both) perform, present, etc. Thus the Kradam. It’s all good.

  439. If you all recall, Jim C. has been tweeting & lamenting about the fact that Adam’s peeps are not giving him access, so IMO highly unlikely this is in any way related to Adam….

  440. I think someone asked this earlier, but no one was awake yet. Does anyone know around how long before the AMA’s they announce who is presenting or performing at the ceremony?

  441. I already edited my post above- it is definitely Kris because Jim C mentions the “top secret song” with Mat Kearny in the headlines thread.

  442. I am going to keep reiterating this, but we STILL have nothing from Adam/RCA/19, but we do for Kris and for Allison. This has nothing whatsoever to do with Kris and Allison. This means we keep waiting and there is nothing available. So if the album tracks are as good as his producers/writers say they will be, this album could be really big. If not, this album could tank in a heartbeat. Expectations grown higher and higher, and I do not understand why 19 is keeping this so close to their chest. I think enough excitement has been generated, no? I am extremely frustrated at this point. Are you?

    And Rickey is a tool. And Jim Cantiello is really beginning to bother me. Enough fantarding already. I misunderstood his “five titles for Kris” post: he was dissing Adam.

  443. suebrody,

    I really don’t think he was dissing anyone. I believe these titles were created as his lame attempt at humor to get attention and hits…

  444. Does anyone know around how long before the AMA’s they announce who is presenting or performing at the ceremony?

    Is there an announcement for the annoucers? What about an announcement for the announcers of the announcers?

  445. I don’t think he was dissing Adam at all. Like someone said above- no one is getting access to Adam right now for whatever reason.

    I do agree about the expectations though- they are making people get waaaaay too excited, and it could really backfire.

  446. I do agree about the expectations though- they are making people get waaaaay too excited, and it could really backfire.

    That’s my fear. Why all this build up????

  447. suebrody, not sure about the perceived dissing. I thought he did it for the lulz, though I don’t personally find him that entertaining. *shrugs* I like Slezak better.

    And as for the expectations, they are already very high, but I don’t think people outside of the proverbial Idol bubble are as frustrated or impatient as we are. We’re just waiting with bated breath for any morsel to drop. Folks in the real world are oblivious to our handwringing, LOL. I think the fact that the album is still in the top 5 after 2 weeks is proof that people are interested and not yet burnt out from the waiting. And, he is still on target for what he originally announced – single mid-October, album Nov 24th. We’re pushing for more than that, and perhaps we are the unrealistic ones. ;)

  448. Tess – ITA. And add to the mix the fact that you can’t really DEFINE winning and losing – especially when it comes to life – how do you win or lose at life? IMO it’s all about doing what you enjoy, being successful at it, making a living, and being happy above all else. If you have that, then you “win” :-)

    To that end, I really do wish the best for Adam, Kris, and Allison, because they are all very talented individuals who have worked hard and now have the good fortune to be able to showcase that talent to the world. That doesn’t mean winning EVERY award, or selling 5 million cds, or anything insane like that. It means that they can keep doing what they enjoy for awhile longer, and that we can have the opportunity to continue to enjoy that talent.

    On another topic, I can’t believe Adam is still #4 on Amazon after there is nada, nothing, squat, zero about his new music.

    Very very awesome! The longer Adam is near the top, especially with no news or PR to support things right now, the better I feel about him having a large network of interest out there already. Very encouraging.

  449. Because I have no choice but to go along for the ride, I have to believe that RCA/Sony believe they have something worth the build up, secrecy, and anticipation because they have enough experience to understand if product is weak and anticipation is super high, then they will have a massive flop…

  450. Um, I think we’re doing the build-up on our own quite nicely. Adam is busy making music, remember? That’s why there are no interviews. He wants to get it right. I think if he wanted his music to leak, it would leak.

    Back to being patient, as I know (I pray) it will pay off.

  451. Expectations grown higher and higher, and I do not understand why 19 is keeping this so close to their chest. I think enough excitement has been generated, no? I am extremely frustrated at this point. Are you?

    Well, I think it’s more frustrating for us, watching it all so closely day after day, but in the bigger scheme of things, it sounds like this is exactly what RCA tends to always do (wait a bit closer to the album drop date to release the first single, etc.)

    I still have a lot of confidence that they have things planned this way – with a specific intention of not leaking ANYTHING until they’re ready and have everything in order. And that, very likely means, waiting longer to release the single, so that Adam is finally free from the laborious studio work, and can focus more energy on PR appearances once the single actually drops. That way he can (hopefully) avoid a bit of the pitfall with Kris’s release, when he had little chance to promote the single in the weeks after its release.

  452. You know…people really do have lives. And only about a half of 1% of that life maybe connected to thinking about Adam Lambert and his music career. Before I got “hooked” on the internet, and I had a job and family responsibilities I wouldn’t have given a knat’s ass to when a new song or album was coming out for an Idol.

    Besides, sometimes information about an upcoming Artist going into the studio to record comes out and its years not months before the album is ready. Perspective!

  453. as far as AMA’s are concerned, unless MJ gets us the inside scoop earlier, you can get presenter & performer info at the ABC AMA site and the AMA facebook page ( and yes, I am pathetic and have both of those bookmarked on my Mozilla browser-sulks and tries to go back to work)

  454. I absolutely share your shame, roweaaine

    Gotta make a big sale soon or they will begin to get suspicious!

  455. I still have a lot of confidence that they have things planned this way ‘“ with a specific intention of not leaking ANYTHING until they’re ready and have everything in order.

    I think this too. I like the idea that they are focusing on what should come first.

    I attribute some of the reasoning that there are no leaks is that there are more songwriters/producers that want to work with Adam than there room for songs on the album. Each may be afraid to lose their chance to be included and are being very careful about what they disclose.

  456. I think the fact that the album is still in the top 5 after 2 weeks is proof that people are interested and not yet burnt out from the waiting. And, he is still on target for what he originally announced ‘“ single mid-October, album Nov 24th. We’re pushing for more than that, and perhaps we are the unrealistic ones.

    THIS^^^^^^^

    My goodness, Jive isn’t RCA and they just released Allison’s single to Itunes on a Friday, the same strategy that didn’t benefit Kris at all. They’ve said all along mid-october. Most of the speculation about sooner has been fanboard or twitter generated and not by official peeps at all. Does anyone really think the way they rolled out Kris’s single was a great strategy?? All I keep reading on the sales threads is that Kris’s fans aren’t aware that he released a single. There was no buildup whatsoever, just some leak from a radio station. Personally, I’d prefer the anticipation and a bona-fide release that’s RCA generated and planned to the nth degree.

  457. I am extremely frustrated at this point. Are you?

    No, anything worthwhile is worth waiting on. I want RCA to make the best decisions in what to release and when. Do we really wish RCA to take the same marketing strategy that Jive has thusfar?

    I do agree about the expectations though- they are making people get waaaaay too excited, and it could really backfire.

    Only in the AI internet bubble. I think some time has given me more realistic expectations. The two idol singles that are out have disappointed some fans. I’m better prepared for a song that I may not be crazy about. (I’ll still buy it-ready to hear that voice on something new!) Adam fans do get the bonus of having two songs.

    And Rickey is a tool. And Jim Cantiello is really beginning to bother me. Enough fantarding already. I misunderstood his ‘five titles for Kris’  post: he was dissing Adam.

    Rickey called Slezak out on his blog. Jim’s article is strange, to say the least. It contains too many “inside jokes” and information only those inside the bubble would know. Is Jim trying to reach an audience outside of the AI internet bubble? If so, he might want to to change his tactic.
    Also, what was the tweet about Adam and meat? I didn’t get it. Does he think Adam is a piece of meat? Does someone have a better interpretation?

  458. Adam said single mid-October, album Nov 24th. He hasn’t made any statements to date that he didn’t keep. It’s hard to wait, but I truly feel it will be worth it. Adam hasn’t disappointed me so far.

  459. Here’s the link to the 2009 AMA site: 2009 AMA

    There’s not much information there now, although someone on the message board said Jimmy Kimmel will be hosting again.

    I don’t have the facebook page link. Maybe 4ervmomof4 can help with that.

  460. Personally, I’d prefer the anticipation and a bona-fide release that’s RCA generated and planned to the nth degree.

    Exactly! While the anticipation is killing me, and I’m seriously on a rollercoaster ride every day it seems – first being elated with the snippets of “news”, then depressed over the lack of it, etc. – the thing that gets me through it all is the thought that I’d be MUCH happier waiting longer while RCA is getting their stuff together and rolling things out in a smart, orderly fashion, rather than rushing through the process and having bad results because of it.

    And for the record, I definitely believe the marketing for both Allison and Kris has been wack – bizarre singles release dates to itunes, little to no advertising (esp. for Allison) – I definitely keep coming back to the argument that if your own HARDCORE FANS don’t know what’s going on, you are just putting yourself out there for failure.

  461. I attribute some of the reasoning that there are no leaks is that there are more songwriters/producers that want to work with Adam than there room for songs on the album. Each may be afraid to lose their chance to be included and are being very careful about what they disclose.

    Interesting theory – that’s very possible too. Another thing I’ve loved about the news coming out about the album is that so many talented writers/producers seem to be clambering at a chance to work with Adam (as opposed to the other way around).

    Putting aside the OTT hyperbole of Aimee Mayo, there is a great deal of enthusiasm from the people he’s working with. That helps make me more confident too.

    Not to mention, I’d love the scenario that he’s getting bombarded with a lot of pretty solid material that he is having to choose between. Not a bad situation to be in.

  462. Jim C is a strange man. That meat reference was very odd to say the least.

  463. Slow news day again if we’re discussing Jim C’s daydream in two diff threads, lol.

    I don’t put a lot of store in Jim C’s tweets about Kris. If Kris had recited the phone book to Jim, he would have that stuck in his head and be raving about it. He is too much of a fantard to take seriously.

  464. Thank you, 4evrmomof4. I will check this out now and wait for further details.

  465. Just a reality check here — wrt Adam’s album and single, there is no “build up”, there is no “secrecy”….he is making his album as recording artists do; his pr and label people have a plan for its roll-out; everything is as it usually is with most recording artists — rca and 19 and adam are not toying with his fan base, or trying to whip people into a frenzy. They are doing what is always done. I don’t recall too many leaks etc. with other albums of artists I like — why should there be any with Adam. He will drop a single in a week or two or three…his album will come out on Nov. 24 . End of story.

  466. mmb- normally I would agree but didn’t Jim C say that Adam’s “people” were keeping the press away? I can’t remember his exact words so maybe someone can help me out on this.

  467. I don’t put a lot of store in Jim C’s tweets about Kris. If Kris had recited the phone book to Jim, he would have that stuck in his head and be raving about it. He is too much of a fantard to take seriously.

    He’s the Kris fan’s Aimee Mayo.

    Nothing wrong with the tarding. I think we are all used to him and Slezak by now. I still think they have always given Adam a fair shake. i hope they continue to do so.

  468. Studio57 i think he said that adam’s people won’t let jim get near adam right now — or something to that effect. Which is not surprising since Adam is not yet doing press for his single/album. I suspect that when he starts doing press (in a week or two or three) then jim will get a few minutes with him.

  469. I just don’t see why he would not be doing any press unless it was deliberate, but i see your point :)

    I just don’t see why he would not be doing any press unless it was deliberate, but i see your point

    I think it’s deliberate, but not to frustrate people. In those last interviews he said he would be doing nothing but working on recording and studio work on the cd for 4 weeks. I would imagine they have his session time and collaborators pretty heavily scheduled and plan to make the big pr push after the work is done. Kris has a deadline of October 15th for a November 17th release, so I would imagine Adam’s deadline is about a week later or so. Right now, the occasional tweet, the occasional sighting..I’m happy. I want the album work to come first.

  471. Because I have no choice but to go along for the ride, I have to believe that RCA/Sony believe they have something worth the build up, secrecy, and anticipation because they have enough experience to understand if product is weak and anticipation is super high, then they will have a massive flop’ ¦

    Very good point 4evermom and though this is my first time following this kind of thing, I’m inclined to agree there is more secrecy than is the norm. (Especially in the age of Twitter.) People were tweeting right and left during the summer when they worked with Adam and now suddenly, it has completely stopped, although we still know everyone is working fast and furious.

    With films, if a studio is worried about a film, they will hype the hell out of it early in hopes to recoup some of the investment with a big opening weekend before the word-of-mouth gets out. I think it’s exciting that they are keeping this launch (from our outside perspective) targeted and organized, with not a lot of haphazard leaks.

    With the TFM video shoot, if it wasn’t for the girl whose grandparents lived on the street, we would have nothing but that singular Adam tweet of confirmation. No grips, no catering people, no extras tweeted a word. It’s interesting.

  472. Cindy M: I want the album work to come first.

    Oh, I do too, but like Kris and Allison’s singles are tying people over until the album is out, I just want something else to overanalyze until Adam’s album comes out, lol. I can wait for the album. I just want to know what the hell I can expect from this guy. So yeah, I am impatient. it was never a strong suit of mine.

  473. From the AMA website:

    WHAT: Recording artists Paula Abdul, Adam Lambert and Snoop Dogg will announce the Nominations for the “2009 American Music Awards” in the Sunset Ballroom of the Beverly Hills Hotel on Tuesday, October 13.

    Recording artists usually have some music out there! Day-um! Maybe they will leak the single tomorrow and release the single on Monday? Download on Itunes on Tuesday? Please!

  474. Adam is a recording artist — he recorded No Boundaries (hehehehe — which I actually like)

  475. He also recorded every song he sang during the competition, and these were sold. He’s a recording artist.

  476. aa618892,

    this was posted on twitter a few days ago & peeps were going wild there as well. Did DDD discuss this after it was posted? I just loved it myself….

  477. 4evrmomof4- Wow, these peeps are proactive!
    Any news on how the preorders are doing in other countries? I haven’t seen international rankings lately.

  478. I don’t know how to check international rankings

    However, international fans have been posting there private and Facebook fan sites on twitter at a fast clip in several different languages.

    DDD has wonderfully intelligent conversations, huh? They break down the performances into best seconds of a song. That is really awesome.

    Plus Adam is truly gifted vocally…

    This! I was just going to say that while I, too, like most fans here, tend to check in every day, and much much more than once a day for any news- we must come to terms with the fact that we are all a little screwd up in the head… I mean, this isn’t exactly normal behaviour, is it? You know how I know it isn’t? Because I don’t tell anyone in my real life how often I really come in here, I would die of shame to admit it…

    So please, before we get angry at Adam or his producers, let’s all remind ourselves that he’s the normal, healthy one here, who’s actually focused on his craft, and hopefully will produce something listening-worthy at least- and crazily awsome at best, whearas us? We’ve just lost it…

  480. LOL! Well said, mr.

    And we are all definitely a little screwed up in the head :-)

  481. My latest theory….since Adam is the newest pride of Rolling Stone I’m thinking that there might be a collaboration between the magazine and Adam’s album release. So, since issue 1089 is releasing on Oct 15th (+-) with U2 on the cover…maybe 1090 releasing Nov. 15th (approx) will be devoted to Adam and his new album.

    Just a theory….

  482. hope springs eternal for Nov 15th RS Adam feature- how embarrassed i am to say that I subscribed a bit ago, because it was cheaper for a year than for 3 issues off the stand..

  483. Did RS become monthly? I know for the longest time it was every two weeks and the subscription on the website still says 26 issues. Can anyone confirm? The only reason I ask is that it would then be issue 1091 coming out on Nov 12-13, with 1090 coming out Oct 29-30…

  484. maybe 1090 releasing Nov. 15th (approx) will be devoted to Adam and his new album.

    oohh – that would be awesome! Where’s elephant1212 when we need her ;-)

  485. I have thus far resisted subscribing to Elle- oh, please don’t tempt me for just one issue

    Squirrely, btw, when does that one issue come out? (gotta be the first one at the bookstands to look drool over my issue

    boy, I have to have a class in strikethru usage!

    It is every 2 weeks, I believe, my error

    No worries! I stopped my subscription in the 90s, so I didn’t have first hand experience anymore – and in this economy, it wouldn’t have surprised me if they had changed to monthly.

    I think another Adam cover is definitely in the cards, based on the fact that the last one sold out. :) But maybe not until after the album is released so they have some sales numbers to talk about?

    ETA: or so there are pictures from the (potential) AMA appearance…to slowly bring this back on topic ;)

  487. I think another Adam cover is definitely in the cards, based on the fact that the last one sold out. But maybe not until after the album is released so they have some sales numbers to talk about?

    LOL! Since when have sales numbers been a prerequisite for any sort of Adam PR ;-)

  488. LOL! Since when have sales numbers been a prerequisite for any sort of Adam PR

    So true! I was just thinking about making it a meatier article than just looking at the pretty and chatting up the hype. ;)

  489. So true! I was just thinking about making it a meatier article than just looking at the pretty and chatting up the hype.

    You’re just trying to make trouble by using the word “meatier” in that sentence, aren’t you ;-)

  490. So please, before we get angry at Adam or his producers, let’s all remind ourselves that he’s the normal, healthy one here, who’s actually focused on his craft, and hopefully will produce something listening-worthy at least- and crazily awsome at best, whearas us? We’ve just lost it.

    What better way to lose it….. keeps the hormones going.

    You caught me! ;)

  492. I know this is OT but ….I wonder if there will be another mention of “suspect zero” on Flash Foward tonight? They showed the stadium scene again last week so……just wondering! I still think they had Adam do that cameo appearance. Sorry..OT!!

  493. Tweet from Adam:

    At Capitol studios observing full string orchestra recording for one of my songs!! It’s amazing!!!!!

  494. Okay . . . studio orchestras cost an f@#$ing fortune. RCA is spending some serious dough. I’m starting to feel just a wee bit better . . . .

  495. I am afraid to post in the Kris threads (tho I did this morning’ ¦eek), b/c I expect this ‘WHO MADE THIS ABOUT ADAM’  avalanche. Peep, I can like BOTH OF THEM.

    But that’s the thing. Some fans can like both but a lot of the time AL “fans” take an article (the one about Slash that had nothing to do with AL) and the entire comment section becomes about AL. This also happens with KA fans so it is a two way street. Go to some of the AL fansites (not necessarity AO). You see the same thing.

  496. Oh my goodness, Adam singing with a orchestra is mind blowing. I just wonder what Clive Davis thinks of Adam and his singing abilities. He has to be loving having another singer with an powerful voice and out of this world vocal range. I can not wait for this album to come out.

  497. Tweet from Adam:

    At Capitol studios observing full string orchestra recording for one of my songs!! It’s amazing!!!!!

    YES!!! FULL STRING ORCHESTRA !!!

    Help me here if you can spot an orchestra in the background of this live performance of No Boundaries.
    At 1:25, I think there are 2 ladies with string instruments.
    No wonder I like No Boundaries.

    Adam’s new album will be fabulous, everything for everybody, but the core for everyone is his amazing voice !!!!!!

  498. Off topic but I don’t know where to post.

    CONGRATULATIONS !!!

    Your President, Barack Obama, won the Nobel Peace Prize.

  499. Thanks asifclueless You gave me the news first, I then went to CNN after reading your comment. String orchestras and the nobel peace prize–what a great day! New Adam and MJ positive–he brings us the news!
    ETA: If you look at the Born to be Wild video you can see the violinists waving their bows to the beat of the music.

  500. asifclueless–tried to add to the above post but not successful. If you look at the Born to be Wild video on far left you can see the violinists waving their bows in time to the music–so there is violin history–and yes, also on NoBo.

  501. Still waiting for more news on Adam. ljsmack I love to see “Far Left ” and NOBO” in same comment. Has a nice ring to it.
