  1. All the events have been streaming since yesterday. Another site they are streaming at is http://www.grammy.com/live They have been showing pre-Grammy events such as honorary shows and other galas, and they also held a media session yesterday, and American Idol was brought up in it – thanks partially to one of my questions that was answered and they spent over 20 minutes on it.

    My exact question was: The Grammys have evolved over the years; what implications could social media have on voting and submissions? (in other words, people like us – and other devoted and quasi-professional music fans, deciding)

  2. Yes Kris is definitely there. Kara’s being interviewed now. One question she was asked is what’s going to be a trend in music this year and Kara said something about really fashion forward women who have great songs and are bigger than music.

    Richie Sambora was interviewed and he mentioned he’s excited to see Santana/Rob Thomas, Carrie, and Jennifer Hudson performing. I think he mentioned being excited about Foo Fighters too.

    By the way Carrie blogged that she’d be singing a duet with a guy tonight so it looks likely that she’ll be singing with Harry Connick Jr.

    Ryan Tedder and Rob Thomas are on the red carpet.

  3. Huh, did I miss the interview with Kris, or is it coming up? I just logged on and they were interviewing Kara DioGuardi.

  4. Bah, I was outside and came back. I saw Kris being interviewed by someone but not by the chick who called Kara ‘Sheera’. lol

  5. According to the host Shira Lazar, there was a long waiting list just for celebrities, it is possible some Idols were on that list that couldn’t come? Who knows.

  6. it’s cool that Allison and Kris are there. Anyone know if Adam is likely to show up as well?

  7. If Adam shows up, he’ll be last, lol He’s always late to these red carpet things.

  8. I get the feeling this guy had NO CLUE who Ke$ha was…

    And it’s suddenly hit me that I’ve never seen Slash without sunglasses…I don’t have any idea what his eyes look like. Hell does he HAVE eyes? ;)

    GAH! Paul Stanley has NOT aged well…

    And again…someone needs to tell this guy who these “younger” artists are!

  9. I think the first interviewer was fired on air. lol

    LOL! That was strange, wasn’t it?

    Did you see that the interviewer didn’t even know who Ke$ha was? Just kind of pushed her out of the way to get to others??? Yet she was acting as though he should know her??? LOL!!!

  10. OK – Slash is cool, but I didn’t need to see that close up where they zoomed in on his nose ring! Yuck!

  11. OMG – he said someone of note is coming along and looked right over Carrie Underwood’s head!!!!

  12. Randy is now speaking, making clear mentions of Idol…even bringing up Pants on the Ground…

  13. OMG – he said someone of note is coming along and looked right over Carrie Underwood’s head!!!!

    I don’t think he saw her but the cameraman did. It was really funny though.

    It was also pretty clear he didn’t recognize Neyo. Carrie ended up passing him by while he was interviewing Neyo.

  14. OK – I haven’t seen Kris yet, but he’s short so it will be tough to find him!

    Nice pic of Allison, though.

  15. Harry Connick, Jr. must have gotten a WIG!

    LMAO. This broadcast is such a hot mess. Poor Roberta Flack.

  16. You just had A WORD with Roberta Flack? OMG – she wouldn’t shut up! I think we missed everyone else.

  17. The damn politician won’t shut up either. Boring! When will we see some performances???

  18. clive-shmive..is he even working in the industry nemore?

    Well…..I know someone who works at the SONY bldg on Madison Ave in NYC, and yes, he has an office there.

  19. OMG – He said George Lopez is way cooler than he is – LOL! That was a good interview with Kris!!!!

  20. Yay…glad Kris finally got some face time! BOY they are pushing the MySpace thing, yeesh!

  21. Yay…glad Kris finally got some face time! BOY they are pushing the MySpace thing, yeesh!

    Yes, and of course Kris said that is myspace account didn’t do much for him – LOL. So much for being politically correct!

  22. Wow – how many times is Usher going to mention he hopes there won’t be sore losers?? I wonder who he has in mind???

  23. She doesn’t know Kris’s name. Every time she refers to him as “American Idol action.”

  24. clive-shmive..is he even working in the industry nemore?

    He owns the J-Records label, which is part of the Sony family, and home to Fantasia, Jennifer Hudson, Alicia Keys, Whitney Houston, Daniel Merriweather, and countless others. His party is also the official party of the Grammy’s.

  25. This guy is a piece of work. I loved him in the fairytale movie (Bedtime Stories) with Adam Sandler!

  26. Wow – she thinks we haven’t heard of Jay Sean??? Hasn’t he has at least 2 Top 20 hits??

  27. im sick of this girl saying “how big is this party?” “why is this party so important”? ugh enough already! lol

  28. this guy is a tool. talking about keri hilson off camera- (“i think ive heard the name”………….omg

    he just called terry seymore PAULA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HAHHAHA

  29. These guys have no idea if they’re on camera or not!

    OK – we didn’t see Adam yet. Is he attending?

  30. Ok kids …know u like him Adam Lambert is looking fab!
    5 minutes ago from UberTwitter (@billiemeyers) looks like adam is there!

  31. Twenty minutes ago, Katy Allen tweeted that she’d just heard LLWD on the radio for the first time (???), and that was well after Kris was interviewed inside the party, so I guess he went stag tonight.

    Bring on the performances!

  32. this billiemeyers person is there and shes a singer-songwriter looks like! maybe he didnt just walk the carpet?

  33. I missed the livestream, but both Allison and Kris look nice.
    Kris is still a bit scruffy though.

    So Kris likes Taylor Swift and has Bieber on his IPod ? Kris, noooo!. Why ?

  34. Does anybody know if Adam is there? I thought I heard the “jerk” interviewer say “I see that bad boy from the AMA – the one that was ban from TV – I don’t know his name” or did I just imagine that?

  35. Are they live streaming the actual performances tonight? or just the red carpet stuff?

  36. Allison and Carrie look GORGEOUS and Kris is smoking hot.

    MJ, you’re right. Kris is hilarious. He’s just so chill about all this stuff. These interviewers are pretty stupid though.

  37. This live feed is a HOT MESS!

    Yes it is!! Wow. Very hard to watch. But thank you for posting the Kris interview. He’s the greatest.

  38. The interviewers were clueless! Pretty funny to watch.

    “I see that bad boy from the AMA – the one that was ban from TV – I don’t know his name” or did I just imagine that?

    I think he was referring to Russell Brand.

    I can’t find any pictures of Adam online. If he’s there, he must have skipped the red carpet.

    Looks like the telecast is over. No performances will be broadcast, unfortunately.

  39. taryder Glambert has arrived! It’s Idol central

    (shes a blogger for E!)

  40. Boo that we don’t see the performances. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted. Is there any chance someone will leak video of the performances later?

  41. @TARYDER@AnnieWT yep he’s here, hair gelled up and fierce as ever. Said hi to Randy Jackson right when he walked in

  42. Allison looks so pretty. Finally she’s worn a really beautiful dress to one of these events.

    And Kris…. well, he cleans up nice…. very nice.

    ETA: Wow, Adam’s suit’s really …. shiney.

  43. Carrie is beautiful, as always. Do her legs look skinnier? She doesn’t need to lose anymore weight!

    Kara and Adam match! It looks like they are going to Prom! LOL!

  44. The new ones of Adam on wireimage are cracking me up…Kara is hanging all over him.

  45. I love the pics of Adam and Kara. They look great.

    Allison needs to get a stylist. That hair … yikes! And I agree, enough already with the goofy faces.

    Kris looks good when he makes the effort, but he should be wearing a tie. The open shirt is too casual for such an event. Not feeling Carrie’s dress at all.

    J Hud’s dress … oh my, all kinds of bad!

    Okay, maybe someone should give me a job on the red carpet! LOL

  46. Allison makes goofy faces because she is a teen! Check the cell phone pics of any teen you know! LOL

  47. I think they all look cute…except for maybe Jennifer. Not sure what to say about that.

  48. What does Jennifer Hudson have on? That dress is a horrible color and the puffy shoulder things are just plain bad.

  49. Kara looks very pretty but she also looks like she needs to be held up in all her pics .. like she’s drunk .. lol

    Adam looks very shiney and metalic .. fabulous

  50. I love how Adam is so fearless in his clothing choices. He really knows how to stand out in a crowd. I think he looks great tonight.

  51. And neither Adam nor Kris look too thrilled about posing with Kara

  52. In terms of looks, of those 5 Idol people, I’m only feeling Allison there.

    Allison kept it simple and nice. I think Kris and Adam just took themselves a bit farther than they should’ve on their outfits. I rather like Kris’s simplicity and I don’t mind his simple, unbuttoned outfit, but he could benefit from a bit more dress up (and I do think he needs a haircut, it’s getting strange). I’m not too much of a fan of Adam’s glam, but even now I think he could’ve toned it down a bit for his outfit. He didn’t have to have so much bad luster. Jennifer is vomit purple and Carrie wore glue and jumped into a huge box of shiny paper clips. Dunno about Kara.

    It’s what’s on the inside that counts :D.

  53. OMG Jammasta that made me laugh…loved your recap, but think I would add Allison’s hair into the dislike column as well. The dress is cute, but that hair is a mess. I dunno, they’re all cute though in their own way..again except Jennifer…I can’t see anything redeeming about her look.

  54. Jennifer looks great is all I can say for someone who just had a baby not long ago. Allison just looks a bit messy in the makeup department. Carrie looks great as well. Adam for just does too much imo no hate just saying

  55. Kris is funny! “you better go talk to George Lopez” when he sees she’s not listening…. haha
    I don’t like the different black of the pant and jacket.
    Allison looks fab (not the hair though). Is it me or she has lost weight?

    liked your recap jammasta :)

  56. Kris’s hair is totally Something About Mary. Or is that just me?

    Jennifer looks great is all I can say for someone who just had a baby not long ago.

    Her body looks fine, it’s her terrible taste in clothes that’s the problem. I hate this dress worse than the one she wore at the Oscars. She needs a stylist or she needs to fire her stylist if she got one, because this is a worst dress nominee.

  58. Well she actually hired a new stylist recently but I like it thats all I’m saying. And some will and some won’t but it’s all opinion not fact

  59. Adam’s suit is even more blindingly shiny than Kara’s face. Kris’s neck is really hairy and it’s freaking me out. Jennifer Hudson needs a better wig. Allison’s faces are cute but her makeup always makes her look like a bit of a hot mess. Carrie looks good.

  60. Kris’s hair is totally Something About Mary. Or is that just me?

    Hahaha. And whose “gel” did he use?

  61. Krisfan84
    01/31/2010 at 2:16 am You guys are very judgemental tonight.

    They really are aren’t they. It’s like is it really that serious to bash like from the comments I’ve seen. Yeah everyone has an opinion and thats fine but it’s just no need to be bashing peoples favs and thats for any of them there. If anyone needs to be talked about at this party its what Rihanna and Ciara was wearing if anything. lol

  62. Hmmmm, I kind of thing everyone sucks in their looks, in one way or another.

    Allison’s little black dress is simple and as an LBD, doesn’t screw up. However, that coat was atrocious, cheap looking and didn’t fit the dress. Oh and the dress was a bit boring. No, you don’t screw up with a simple black tube dress, but you don’t go too right with a simple black tube dress. Still, no actual faux pas (that coat aside) so Allison is ahead.

    Kris’s hair is, as mentioned, Something About Mary…and not in a good way. I agree he went too simple. Yes we get it Kris, you don’t like to dress up, and the time you went for it, the AMAs, you did a horrible job. But surely there must be a happy medium between the AMA pimp suit of suck and ‘hey, I think I’ll throw on a sports jacket over my chinos and pants’ looks.

    Kara? I owned that outfit for my Barbie in the ’80s. Nuff said.

    Adam, well I like the hair and make-up. Unlike Kris, dressed up to the occasion to the right degree. But fashion doesn’t have to be by Garanimal, not everything has to match. Also you are not a crow, look away from the shiny.

    I hate Carrie’s dress. Like HATE. And I’m all for avant and whatever, but that’s just ugly and the colour, or lack thereof, does nothing for her colouring. Talk about washing one out. And what? are you wearing a chandelier? Carrie, you better watch out with all that shiny, Adam might come after you.

    Jennifer –well okay, good job for wearing a colour and not black or white, as too many seem to do on the runway these days. Also the sleeves are both very now, and fashion forward, so keeping on trend there. But the fabric is atrocious, it’s unflattering and that purple hue is not one that flatters her. Definite miss.

    I guess the person that looks the least bad, ‘wins,’ so Allison, guess you and your boring dress, are the winner by default.

  63. I think Allison and Kris were the best dressed. Adam would have been IT for me if the suit weren’t shiny.

  64. i think they all look bad together, Allison and Adam are a little better tho. K’s ‘neck hair’ – ew, Randy’s plaid shirt – fugly

  65. i am a bit confused. Isn’t the Grammys on Sunday night? was the pre-party was on Sat night?

  66. What the hell is going on at this party?

    @CorettaJackson She is really touched by the lyrcis and music.

    What the hell is going on at this party?

    IIRC years back Mary J had some rough times, struggles with substance abuse. She credits Clive Davis and Doug Morris (who’s being honored tonite) with sticking with her through those tough times and helping her help herself. I think the No More Drama success happened after she pulled her shit together with their help, and the performance of that song was a callback to that, and performing the song from Precious right after that was a one two punch of emotion. I bet it was an unbelievably powerful performance.

    This pic from Markus shows Mary sinking down to ground the belt the shit outta the song. Awesome.

    i am a bit confused. Isn’t the Grammys on Sunday night? was the pre-party was on Sat night?

    Yep, the Grammys are Sunday, but the Clive Davis party the night before the Grammys is an institution. Although unfortch for Clive, it’s lost a little bit of its luster since last year Sony decided for whatever reason it was too fucking expensive to foot the bill for it. Clive then partnered with NARAS (National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences), the peeps who put on the Grammys and they now sponsor (and pay for) it. And continued the partnership this year. That’s why it’s not a Sony-only dog and pony show anymore. But even if it’s a bit scaled down from it’s heyday, it’s still the most famous party of the Grammy weekend.

  69. “One question she was asked is what’s going to be a trend in music this year and Kara said something about really fashion forward women who have great songs and are bigger than music.”

    Ooh I hope her forecast is wrong- fashion should never override the music in my opinion!!

    I was a bit confused for a while here as well. So this is just a pre-party – not the actual Grammys- so then I would say that Kris is very aptly dressed as its not the actual awards!! Also the comments about Kris still looking scruffy regarding his “after 5 shadow” that’s what happens when males are seen without makeup! Kris probably shaved in the morning & didn’t have time to shave again- so this is a natural male look for me.
    I suppose in Hollywood though – many males would wear makeup – so people are not used to seeing this. I would say in country US Kris’s look would be the norm!!
    I think Allison looks great in the black dress but I would like to see her with less make-up- to me less is more.
    The video of the red carpet looked like mayhem – gotta love Kris about reading this interviewer’s nonverball clues- forever the humble guy!!

  70. Also the comments about Kris still looking scruffy regarding his “after 5 shadow” that’s what happens when males are seen without makeup! Kris probably shaved in the morning & didn’t have time to shave again- so this is a natural male look for me.

    No, it’s not the lack of make-up. It’s the lack of shaving. Kris has been on other red carpets and hasn’t had the kind of scruffiness he was sporting here, and was still not wearing make-up. The two are not mutual.

  71. I read the comments starting at the begining… TOO FUNNY!!! The livestream comments made me wish I watched it!

    Is Adam’s suit the white one just dyed can you dye silk?)? Maybe he just bought a matching one in black? I think it’s fab!

    Allison needs some accessories.

    I hate Kara – she should never get between Kradam!

  72. Well, I thought everyone looked good though I don’t really like Carrie’s dress and Adam is a little too shinny. Allison isn’t wearing that much makeup. She barely has any eye shadow, just a black line and her lipstick is not as intense as I’ve seen in other events. If she wears less makeup, she’d be wearing no makeup.

  73. No, it’s not the lack of make-up. It’s the lack of shaving. Kris has been on other red carpets and hasn’t had the kind of scruffiness he was sporting here, and was still not wearing make-up. The two are not mutual.

    I think Kris should shave his neck and just under the jawline when he’s sporting the scruff look. I do love the scruff, though! However, I’m impressed that he made it to the party at all. They’re rushing to get ready/pack for their trip overseas and rehearsing a lot of new songs for the concerts.

    As far as what he’s wearing, he’s not the only male artist that was there with the ‘dress casual’ or organic look.

    This video has the beginning of that interview and it’s even funnier. He says Clive texted him that the party wouldn’t be anything without him … because, you know, Clive is so into texting and facebook and myspace.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hyCJAn7V0Xk&feature=player_embedded

    There is a photo elsewhere (another blog) that shows the look on his face when that female interviewer interrupted him in the middle of another interview on the red carpet. It’s the perfect ‘Have you no manners?’ look.

    I think the women all looked lovely. I would have shortened both Alli and Jennifer’s dresses about 3 inches though. For Allison, I never like that ’60s ‘Bewitched’ eye makeup. Other than that, she looked great.

    Adam – I do not like shiny suits on men.

  74. Everyone’s taste is different. Adam took a chance and I think his suit is very Rock n Roll and Fashionable. I really like Jennifer Hudson’s dress too. IMHO I guess people like conservative. but that is why there is more then one Idol thank God, we will always or mostly find that one that will wear or dress the way we like. (usually our favorites….We tend to find only the good in our favorites and the bad in all the other idols.)

    My ranking of the five is

    1) Jennifer Hudson
    2) Adam Lambert
    3) Allison Iraheta
    4 Carrie Underwood
    5) Kris Allen

    There really wasn’t a bad dresser in the bunch. I felt Kris lacked any creativity or tradition. Allison looked HOT but too safe in style. JMHO Doesn’t make me right or that I am putting down any of them. Usually I like the way Kris dresses.

    FYI this was a Pre-Grammy party so I don’t know what people are expecting in the way of dress or Couture.

  75. Allison looks great. If anything, the look was just too simple. I feel like something is missing from the look. I have always preferred straight hair for her, and I think here it would have worked. Maybe her way to spice it up was to have her hair messy.
    I am not commenting on the jacket because it’s so out of place that I can only conclude she got cold and someone gave it to her.

  76. I’ll probably get slaughtered for saying this but Adam looks like he’s trying to do blue steel in every photo he posed for. Hilarious.

  77. Geez Kara……cannot stand the woman!

    Allison looked lovely. Jennifer needs another new stylist. Kris, was Kris. …..and Adam, well, not my favourite look for him. Hopefully less is more tonight.

  78. I think Allison, Kris, and Adam all had photos that they looked great in and they all had photos that they didn’t. If someone wants to feature Kris as the worst dressed, at least he would be getting some more media attention.. So no worries there. (response to a post on previous page)

    Erenguest.. I agree with you that most of them looks that way. There are a few that he looks more natural in. BTW: spell check wants me to change your name to erectness.. LOL..

    TwigLA.. Cale’s twitter party was a lot of fun. I think he will be the source of info while they are touring.

  79. clearone, I think that shiny suit was Adam’s ‘less is more’ look for the pre-party. I’m expecting something a little wild tonight. ;)

  80. clearone, I think that shiny suit was Adam’s ‘less is more’ look for the pre-party. I’m expecting something a little wild tonight.

    Lord I hope not!

  81. Boy went to bed earlier for a change and misses Cale tweeter party, and the red carpet stuff. I thought everyone looked fantastic, Adam’s suit wasn’t that bad even thou it was a little shinny.

  82. Also, maybe I’m being a bit nitpicky, but in Jennifer Hudson’s picture with Clive Davis (I think that’s who it is? That old guy?), she looks like she’s missing a boob. I feel that even if one of them is hiding behind Clive, the other one shouldn’t be popping out so prominently like it’s the better boob or something.

    And I rather like underdressed Kris still, but he could clean up a bit (he has a hairy Adam’s apple…… Lambert’s Apple? and he has shark-ish hair) and MAYBE dress up a bit more and still pull off an underdressed look (I think I’m making Kris sound naked).

    Glammy Adam isn’t my cuppa but usually looks great, but not tonight, he kinda looks like a brand new nickel. It’s a great color scheme for Adam, but it needed to be de-shined and he would’ve looked fine (although it does seem like he wears Raiders colors quite often, maybe he could be shiny poo brown next time. Or even pull off some wacky 49er’s color suit).

    I wouldn’t add the hair to what I don’t like about Allison (although it does look kinda like lava), but I would’ve added more creativity to the facial expressions. All three of her crazy pics look the exact same.

    Once again, they’re beautiful on the inside and above the necks. Eek, I’m judging outfits.

    Back to Kris’s interview, I thought it was quite humorous when George Lopez was brought up LOL.

  83. TwigLA, thanks for the info re: Cale twitter party. He is a witty guy and I can see why he and Kris are good buds. Thanks, MJ, for the Kris video, pretty funny!

    I have an irrational dislike for Kara that keeps growing. I didn’t like her last year and I just know that she is determined to be the judge most certain-to-take-Simon’s-crown when he is gone. Kara, honey, sweetie, please don’t ruin American Idol for me, and I say this while slapping my desk for emphasis.

  84. It’s like the 3 Bears:

    Kris is waaaaaaaaay too casual (make some effort, Dude)
    Adam is mmmmmuch too shiny (scary, though the suit is nicely cut )
    and Allison is juuuuuuuuuust right !! (you go, Girl )

    ——————————————————

    I was a bit confused for a while here as well. So this is just a pre-party – not the actual Grammys- so then I would say that Kris is very aptly dressed as its not the actual awards!!

    Eh, disagree.
    I do appreciate Adam at least made an effort to dress for the occasion. Just ’cause it isn’t the Grammy’s doesn’t mean you can dress like you’re going out for a casual dinner. I mean look around, if the women are dressed like they are, and most of the men are wearing ties or the equivalent, clearly it is more than just a “casual” affair.

  85. I must be the only one that likes Adam’s suit…I bet it didn’t look quite as shiny in person as it did in the photographs.

  86. I want wild, crazy Adam tonight!!! Never know what the boy will show up in!

    Jennifer’s boobs – it’s one thing to show cleavage and another thing to have a breast look like it is trying to escape from being buried alive and dying for a gulp of air.

  87. No mmb you aren’t the only one! I loved it too!

    Eta… It’s been a year and are still trying to guess what Adam will wear!

  88. There really wasn’t a bad dresser in the bunch. I felt Kris lacked any creativity or tradition.

    I think Kris’s interest in clothes is zip. There was a bit during the AI season last year when he was out looking for something to wear for a performance and complained that he didn’t know why he couldn’t just wear the T-shirt and jeans he had on then. Katy is probably largely responsible whenever he upgrades to more than T-shirt and jeans now.

    I must be the only one that likes Adam’s suit…I bet it didn’t look quite as shiny in person as it did in the photographs.

    Nah, you’re not alone. I loved it! It was so… Adam! A lot of what he wears would look silly on most people, but I think he has the panache to pull almost anything off!

  90. Gotta love the happy Idols- they are radiant (in Adam’s case, literally!)

  91. I loved the shiny suit, too! It is so Adam. He is such an expressive person…it comes out in hair, and clothes, and song, and acting, and in everything he does. He cannot be contained to the “normal”. Thank the universe for that! We are lucky that he will be around for decades to come.

  92. Have fun S8 idols. That invite to next year’s Clive party won’t be so easy to get.

  93. “I must be the only one that likes Adam’s suit…I bet it didn’t look quite as shiny in person as it did in the photographs.”

    I was thinking the same thing – that it was the flash that made it look sooo shiny and it probably looked different in person but the thing that struck me was that it looked like he had no neck in some of the pictures – like one of those pictures where they paste a head on a different body.

    Also, I wonder how big Ke$ha is – in the Wireimage pictures with Carrie she not only towers over her but her head looks twice as big – or is Carrie that tiny?

  94. That is if Clive is still alive of course

    I think Clive is going to live forever ………..

    Nope, don’t want wild and crazy Adam tonight. I bet he has some nice designer suit to wear though…….he can’t be asking about fashion if he’s not wearing some designers clothes himself!

    You are absolute right. Other than Carrie and JHud and the “top” 3 from season 8 (with due respect to Gokey) no other idols were in attendance. It’s a tough biz out there and after the initial hoopla you have to earn your stripes.

  96. I am not commenting on the jacket because it’s so out of place that I can only conclude she got cold and someone gave it to her.

    It’s only in one picture and in none of the red carpet ones, so I’m thinking that she just got cold and put something on while she was talking to Kris and someone snapped a picture, that’s all.

  97. Have fun S8 idols. That invite to next year’s Clive party won’t be so easy to get.

    Well at least for 2 of the 3….. the shiny idol won’t be going away anytime to soon…! :)

  98. I think Allison looks good, Carrie & her fiance are too cute, and while I don’t like Jennifer’s dress she’s looking good these days. The guys are meh to me.

  99. I live hearing that Jennifer brought the house down. She always brings he A game everywhere she goes

  100. Have fun S8 idols. That invite to next year’s Clive party won’t be so easy to get.

    Thats alright. None of my favorite bands are there kissing his ass anyway. And if they were, that would be the last time I follow their sellout asses.

  101. I think it is great that our AI8 Top 3 got to attend and network like this.
    So what if the third stitch down on the left lapel is crooked, 4 hairs out of 4 million were frayed, and the shine registered 0.02 higher magnitude scale than we liked- I hope everyone had a great time and made some great contacts.

    I look at them and see joyful kids living their dreams and hope all the mega scrutiny they experience doesn’t cause them to second guess themselves the next time around. They should always dress how they want and to feel comfortable in pleasing themselves because God knows there’s no pleasing the masses.

    I mean I’m sitting here wearing last nights sweatpants.
    They all look fine to my way of thinking.

  102. omg….I was going to ask you peeps for photos of jennifer h. to see that dress and here they are. ugh ugh ugh. kara….ugh ugh….carrie..ugh ugh. kris…ugh . adam…shiny but i think it’s just the lights. oh, forgot allison…ugh. Not that I should be judging the clothes but why not? It’s all part of the entertainment biz. At my job I am reminded all the time about how to dress.

    Don’t think too many OTT fashion tonight. That’s generally saved for the Music Video awards. Hope Adam wears something fierce but high end.

  103. I mean I’m sitting here wearing last nights sweatpants.
    They all look fine to my way of thinking.

    LOL, ibhde10!!!! When I was watching Kris, Allison, Carrie, and Jennifer get picked apart last night, I wanted for everyone to be on video chat. I want to see just how smartly dressed and perfectly put together all these experts are.

    Me personally … I was and still am in a mint green fuzzy robe that is 4 sizes too big for me with a mauve hoodie underneath. It’s freezing here in LA.

    BTW, half the pictures appear to be gone from here. Is it just me or did someone forget to pay their wire image bill?

  104. I mean I’m sitting here wearing last nights sweatpants.

    And I am sitting here wearing my PJs…
    What does what we wear in front of our computers have to do with what someone wore to a party last night?

  105. Ok – hold up – wait a minute! I don’t usually feel this way, cuz I’m more a fan of the voice than the whole fan-girly omg he’s so gorgeous, yada yada yada stuff – BUT Adam looks mf’in HAWT in these pics – WOW! Love the whole look, especially hair and eyes.

  106. Given Adam’s crazy schedule (& his birthday bash) the last few days I think he looked incredible. Loved the suit, although the tailoring of the jacket wasn’t quite right. Otherwise – beautiful.

    Allison looked lovely.

    Kris OTOH looked not only too casual, but actually unkempt.

  107. ok jhud-the purple dress is okay i guess, but the blue little number you wore on stage?? HIDEOUS!! she looks 50 years old!

  108. What’s with Joe Jonas? Always thought he was the hottest. What happened? The one that’s married now…he and his wife look great. And Chase Crawford….WOW…he and Adam….will never be…oh well.

    Worst dressed to me are Rihanna (what?????), Kesha, Randy Jackson and others lol.

    Were there any pictures of Clive and Adam?

  109. I think it is great that our AI8 Top 3 got to attend and network like this.

    Was Danny Gokey there? He was f3 and not Allison unless my memory is failing me.

  110. I always like the saying, “You should wear the clothes. The clothes shouldn’t wear you.”

  111. Was Danny Gokey there? He was f3 and not Allison unless my memory is failing me.

    I think Danny is in Nashville. Allison lives in LA.

  112. Considering the fact that I wear jeans and t-shirts 99% of the time and hate makeup with a passion, I’m thinking everyone at last night’s party are far more stylish than me…I might go WTF at some of the outfits, but it’s not that big a deal in the end. Hopefully the Idols had a good time and got to do a bit of networking.

    And I think all of the AI8 Idols have a good chance of getting future invites to this party…

    Was Danny Gokey there? He was f3 and not Allison unless my memory is failing me.

    I guess that’s true. AI8 Best 3 were there. :-)

  114. LOVE Carrie’s shoes!!! You go girl!

    Kevin Jonas is smiling so much because he is now getting laid on a regular basis and doesn’t have to hide it.

    If people think Kris is unkempt, they need to take a look at Russell Brand. Guy looks like he literally just rolled out of bed. For Katy’s sake, I hope he at least ran a toothbrush through his mouth.

    Joe is trying for a cheaper Adam Lambert Heaven Gala ensemble.

    Joe Jonas, Kris, Rickey Martin, Chase etc…What’s with all the scruffy look last night? Guys, it’s called a RAZER! You can buy a pack for a buck. Kris scruffy doesn’t look bad now in context – plus he’s just too adorable anyway.

    Slash – that’s the way you pull off casual! WTF with Rihanna!!! LMAO

    Damn – the Idols were some of the best dressed there last night!!!

    MJ needs to have a thread for the live red carpet. That will be too much FUN.

  115. Can’t edit but I really love the picture of Harry kissing Carrie. So cute!!

  116. Well I will say that all of the AIers, yes even JHud and Carrie in their respective dresses that I didn’t like, ALL looked better than Rhianna and Kelis. There is a picture of Kelis and one of those comic book pictures of “Sea Monkeys” and she really does look like one. http://twitpic.com/10o1do

  117. What’s with Joe Jonas? Always thought he was the hottest. What happened? The one that’s married now…he and his wife look great. And Chase Crawford….WOW…he and Adam….will never be…oh well.

    LMAO – I always thought Joe was the hottest too – now, not so much.

    J. Hud’s red carpet dress was truly horrendous – ITA that she looks way too old-fashioned in all of these get ups.

    OTOH – I think Taylor Swift and Carrie both seem to be tarted up way too much (esp. recently). TS used to be this cute, wholesome girl, and now they seem to get her in tighter, shorter skirts – just like Carrie, kinda too skeevy imo.

    Love Adam’s suit and look! Can’t wait to see what he wears tonight (though I won’t be watching much tonight-way too many acts I don’t care about). Allison looks beautiful! Kris does look a little too unkempt/drunk.

    Wish Adam had been asked to perform instead of Kesha – since Clive likes to give one spot to an up-and-comer, I think they were prob. both on the short list, but Adam can’t win ’em all (and he’s had many other high profile gigs lately, so kinda hard to complain). Still, give me Adam’s live performances and vocals anyday over Tik Tok grrrlll (who did look like a hot mess on the red carpet).

  118. I dont care how Russell Brand looks, i will still love him lol I think Adam looked amazing, loved the shiny suit.

  119. Well, I know we all have our own tastes. I’m glad Kris didn’t feel like he had to dress like anyone but himself last night. I still say the camera loves that guy! His adorbs face makes up for any flaws. He was funny in that interview too.

    I’m sorry, but not a fan of the shiny suit. I will go as far as to say that I don’t think it did Adam any favors, imo, with the camera.

    I think Carrie, Jennifer (in the purple dress) and Allison all looked lovely.

    Kara looked okay, but what was with her hanging all over Adam? Russell Brand and Randy not so much.

    In the end, no biggie.

  120. Man Kris just doesnt seem to care anymore. The boy should shave his hairy Adam’s apple, just sayin LOL he looks like he hasnt showered in about 5 days. He usually looks so beautiful!

    Allison looks pretty but i feel like the dress is much too casual and the makeup makes her look about 20 yrs older.

    I’m loling at the fact that some people think Adam is gonna be more dressed down today. I think this shiny Tin Man outfit is his casual look, i expect something crazy and over the top tonight. I love how he looks here tho, it’s very Adam LOL

    Jennifer’s purple dress is a tragic mess, the other one looks nice and she lost sooo much weight, its unbelievable especially given the fact she just had a baby! also i think kara and russel brand are in love with adam haha

  121. Count me in as one who thinks Adam looks great. Keep in mind that the camera flash makes the suit look extra shiny all over, but in the normal, darker lighting of the room it would not look that shiny at all. It would be a much more subtle glow on just the shoulder, or whatever happened to catch the subdued lighting overhead.

    Re: Kris, I think he looks much better clean shaven. He needs to pay more attention to his hair, and I do wish he had worn a tie. I agree that he looks rather unkempt here.

    Oh well, as others have said, no biggie.

  122. I always appreciate the effort and thought Adam puts into his outfits before an appearance. I’m personally sick and tired of men being lazy with their looks as of late and passing it off as a “scruffy” look. Scruffy belongs in the bleachers at a football game…not at a pre-Grammy party. Time and place for everything. Adam knows how to dress for whatever occasion he’s attending…..hit or miss with the actual color, fabric sheen, the fit, etc. I could care less about. I simply appreciate that he understands dressing for an occasion and hopefully it will rub off on others this year.

  123. Haha I think everyone looks good-more or less ;)
    okay
    Jennifer-um,no.HELL NO.in that purple mess her boobs are creeping me out and in that blue “thing” she looks like 50.um,ugh.
    haha Kris has “the fetus” on his iPod? That’d be funny is Justin wasn’t so cute
    Kris-he looks good-as usual.a little boring-but good
    Allison-yknow usually to me whatever she wears looks weird because of her awesome hair.it just didn’t work.today, it looked safe but it like worked or her.so I liked it.
    Carrie-pretty.and she looks so happy with her fiancé.aww.
    Kara-Idk, she looks *great* to me
    the fierce one- um,wow.sure it’s shiny, but I like shiny.he looks SO HOT.I know I say this a lot but this time I really mean it .THIS IS THE HOTTEST IVE EVER SEEN HIM LOOK-MY FAVORITE EVER.the suit, the shoes everything’s perfect.

    So that’s my opinion.
    But who am I to judge? My usual outfit is abercrombie, skinny jeans, and converse..so, yah:)

    .THIS IS THE HOTTEST IVE EVER SEEN HIM LOOK-MY FAVORITE EVER.the suit, the shoes everything’s perfect.

    I agree. He hit a home run with this look and I hope he doest something similar tonight.

    Not a Kris fan, but I think he looks good too! Very handsome. Allision looks adorbs, and a lot of time I don’t like how she looks. Carrie looks gorgeous as usual. Jennifer’s face and body look great but I don’t like the dress.

  125. Ok nobody has mentioned this but doesn’t it look like Adam hurt his thumb? Notice what looks like a cold pack in the picture with Kara and then a big old bandage looking thing when he is hanging on the railing??? Hope he doesn’t have to wear a bandage tonight when he is on the red carpet. Knowing his fashion taste it will be a very glittery affair. Could get him some extra sympathy when he is being critical of someone’s outfit. My guess is he doesn’t have to criticize them to their fact but after the fact, right???

  126. After looking at some of the other Wire images of the men that the party, I’m becoming more reconciled to Adam’s suit. Jamie Foxx’s, Will.i.am’s outfit, Russell Brand’s, Jonas brother’s (no idea which one), Randy Jackson’s, all were pretty bad…and that’s just the first page. So yeah, I’m putting Adam’s suit a bit more into perspective. Though still think something off about it, colour/fit combination of them? Whatevahs.

    Still not my favourite look of his, but I dislike it less now.

  127. Ok- changed my mind.
    I don’t like Adam’s suit and I think I know why- the opening is too wide, the lapels are too wide and the whole effect makes him look as if he has narrow shoulders. And the one thing he is not is narrow- he is extremely broad shouldered.
    Then the shirt buttons up too far and so eliminates his neck and so it looks like his face is just sitting up there plonked on a narrow body.

    Sorry Adam.
    It does you no favors, and that’s a hard thing to do.

  128. Ok nobody has mentioned this but doesn’t it look like Adam hurt his thumb

    Ohh, hadn’t even noticed this till now. Maybe that party on Friday was wilder than we thought ;-)

  129. Jammasta (I think it was) opened the discussion on Jennifer’s boobs. That is one thing (or two) that I have a problem with when trying to watch her perform. Mostly, I can’t watch her because she puts her boobs way up high under her neck and then they bounce around when she is singing. I know there are ways to contain them and still show cleavage. If she can’t control them, she should IMO lessen the amount of exposure. Both my mother and I are large busted, so I know about the problems that come with that territory. I know something can be done. Maybe it doesn’t bother anyone else, but it bothers the crap out of me. I’ve never seen this on other large-busted performers.

    ETA: I like the purple dress on her with the exception of the above problem.

    Sorry, but that is something I’ve wanted to say aloud to someone for a long time. Now that I’ve done my bad deed for the day, guess I’ll go back and read some more comments.

  130. I do think Kris needs a haircut and needs to fit it in before he goes on “tour”. Takes less time in upkeep in the long run. If it’s not a priority in everyday normal life, it certainly would be put on the backburner when your time is at a minimum with rehearsals, interviews, et al. That said, I think Kris looks neat, understated and very handsome in all his pictures.

    Adam is a good-looking man, nice eyes. Some of the close-up pictures can’t hide certain flaws, but ultimately, he is a handsome man. I’m not sure if the face makeup hurts or helps. His eyes are always stunning. Oddly enough, I always find Adam’s suits are ill-fitting. Either sleeves are too long, suit jackets too snug. I’m always a bit surprised by that being so into fashion.

    Looks like a great time was had by all.

  131. Ooo- I just got to see this now-
    And I have to say that you guys are MEAN!!!

    I liked what almost everyone was wearing!
    Allsion looked nice (well- I agree the goofy faces must stop), Kris looked cute, Carrie and her fiance look like Barbie&Ken (I don’t know if that’s good or bad, lol), Jhud is looking really good- I think she’s lost a lot of weight! And I kinda liked her crazy purple dress, and really liked her performance dress! She was like a flower child!

    And- ofcourse- Adam!!! Damn that boy is shiny! I think he looked beautiful and radiant…

    Hoping for something really crazy tonight!!

  132. Examined the thumb photo again….Could be a bandage…splint and gauze, but he would have had to hurt it, gone to the medic, had it treated, made his way back to the red carpet to be in line at the exact same place. If not a bandage, kinda looks like packaging of some sort or a mini-pad (doubtful).

  133. Oh- and forgot to say: Have you noticed Adam’s rocking the turquoise highlights again??? Yay!!!

  134. I thought it was his napkin from the table….but what do I know! ;)

  135. I first thought it might be some kind of thumb corsage or something new that Adam might be rockin’. But it was not in other photos, so I’m with the napkin school of thought.

    MJ, if your comment was directed at my post, I’m sorry. I was just kidding about doing my bad deed for the day. When I went back and reread my post after your comment, it did come across as a bit much. I’m not usually that much of a critical person. Sorry, MJ.

  136. Whether you like Adam’s outfits or not..one of the things I like most about him, is that he seems to be never afraid to go there, and bring something new, exciting, and news-talk worthy to the table in fashion or music. He usually hits and occasionally he misses to varying degrees, but it is that willingness to do that, which helps him stand out and be memorable. :)

  137. I am confused about Adam suit jacket, like the black one, it seems too short and the button seems to high, but what the hell do I know about mens fashion suits.. I think tho the 2 suits maybe even the white one were cut from the same pattern. Anyone have any ideas about this? And all I can wait for tonite is to see Adam and what he is wearing. I hope it is on one of the TV channels.

    So true!!…and I love that about him!! He has a very confident esthetic sense…he’s fearless (and fierce!!)

  139. I think my computer gave up trying to load the graphics because all I get is a bunch of bar lines. I had to find the photos somewhere else *cry*. Anyway, I hope Adam retires this suit because it wasn’t a flattering look for him. The jacket is too short and the pants looked all bunchy.
    There was WAY too much going on with Rihanna’s dress. Either you have all that fabric sticking out on the top OR the bottom but not both.
    Katy Perry really has an amazingly beautiful face – I never realized that until AI. Her skin is flawless, her eyes are so blue. She could be a china doll.
    I’ve never seen Kris look this tired around the eyes. I don’t think he’s looking good; I think he’s looking exhausted.

  140. If Adam wants my opinion which I’m sure he does (hah!) I think his best look is a vest and an open jacket. It seems that his fittings always look snug when he buttons the jacket and I agree that it looks too high. I thought he looked beautiful at the CCA. Tight jeans with a fancy vest and jacket, YUM!

  141. It seems that his fittings always look snug when he buttons the jacket and I agree that it looks too high.

    It’s not too high, that’s the way it’s no doubt supposed to look. It’s a suit look that is coming back. Men’s fashion is pretty boring when it comes to suits, so things that get messed with periodically are exciting things like how many buttons, how high the buttons, the label widths, double or single breasted, how tight. The basic form of the suit for Adam is fine and in fashion. I’m not sure about the tailoring of it, though.

    Oh to see some images of the kinds of high button suits, and different fits of suits, you can check out Project Rungay’s pictoral with Givenchey’s 2010 fall menswear here (there are some great examples of this with this collection that are pretty typical) http://projectrungay.blogspot.com/2010/01/givenchy-menswear-fall-2010.html

    Or Robert Cavalli’s 2010 fall menswear collection here: http://projectrungay.blogspot.com/2010/01/roberto-cavalli-menswear-fall-2010.html

    Or one of Adam favourite designes, Alexander McQueen’s 2010 fall menswear here:http://projectrungay.blogspot.com/2010/01/alexander-mcqueen-menswear-fall-2010.html

    Oh and the best suit look, and I thought it was great, and actaully very simple, was his look for the AMAs, before he performed. I thought that suit fit him well, and the whole look was good that evening. Too bad that was the best part of the night for him, but bygones.

  142. I think Kris looks hot. I like everything about Kris for this event. This all looks too planned to truly be unkempt. I think Kris experiments between the clean shaven look and this so called scuffy look. Either look can work for Kris. If a guy looks hot, the means to how the guy looks hot are secondary for me.
