Kris Allen’s Disney Commercial (American Idol)

May 21, 2009 1 comment

LOL – it’s cute and cheesy!

Here’s the BTS for the commercial from MTV’s Jim Cantiello

Right after Kris won, he was whisked away to backstage, where a crew was waiting for him to say “I’m going to Disney World!” Kris, being a low key dude, wasn’t giving the producer what he wanted. “Be more excited!” Kris tried to up the energy. “I’m going to Disney World!” “You can do better than that! SCREAM IT!” Kris tried again. The producer pushed more. Kris tried again. And then an “Idol” stage manager rushed in and started yelling at the other producer. “That’s the best you’re gonna get! Let him be himself! He doesn’t do excitement!”

Adam Lambert and Kris Allen with Queen (We are the Champions)

May 21, 2009 1 comment

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Now, this is how you perform a duet, Danny Gokey! If you’re still watching videos to improve your performance skills, I suggest you spend a couple of minutes with this one. See how much they respect and love and enjoy performing this together?

I am an uber Queen fan so I practically died when I heard the opening strains of “We Are the Champions” and the curtain revealed Brian May and Roger Taylor. Adam sounded so much like Freddie … Good times!

ETA 2: Download the mp3 from this link

ETA : I really liked this article from VH1 that recaps the performance.

Let’s Enjoy Adam Lambert’s Studio Recording of “A Change is Gonna Come” + Collection of Print Media

May 21, 2009 4 comments

Absolutely sublime 🙂 So get yourself to iTunes to download your own copy – and incidentally – Adam’s got his own version of “No Boundaries” available for download too. Not sure if that’s a mistake on Apple’s part since that is Kris’ first single now. I’m saying this because I don’t want this to devolve into a fan war of “my idol sold more than your idol!” (especially since I still think the song is shiteous – although it sounded much better when Kris sang it again …)

Anyway, I’m grabbing all the iTunes studio recordings I failed to get before (Allison!!!) since I think Idol takes everything down this week (and then it’s gone forever – unless you go to limewire).

I love Kradam

I hope that Adam fans (ex. Rolling Stone’s Rob Sheffield – please Mr Sheffield, please push for an Adam Lambert RS Cover) have recovered by now. He’s dealing with his loss in a very upbeat and mature manner so I wish all those fans (in certain blogs/forums) who are sour graping right now would just quit. Besides, it sounds like Kris really smoked him in votes this finale (says Billy Bush – entertainment reporter) so it wasn’t even a dead-heat as we all thought (supposedly). I have no idea why not more Americans appreciated him – but I sure did! Anyway, the latest is that Adam is going to sign a contract (same as Kris, Danny Gokey and Allison Iraheta) so it’s all good.

So cheer up Adam fans! Check out a couple of his interviews just to see how fine he is! And Kris’ too! (I’ll be updating as more come up)

Season 8 American Idol Winner

Wow – the first cannon fodder to ever win American Idol. And come to think of it, the first married man to win American Idol too!

I’m weirdly happy. I’m an Adam fan, but there’s something so cool about America picking someone the show never really pimped.

Adam’s still MY American Idol though 🙂 How cool was that Kradam duet with Queen???

Don't worry Adam, you're still a star! Holy platform shoes tonight!
