American Idols Live! Tour – Wachovia Center (Philadelphia, PA)

It’s DAY THIRTY-THREE of the American Idols Season 8 Live! Tour at the Wachovia Center (Philadelphia, PA). I’m gathering all the articles/reviews/videos/interviews here. All tweets are left behind in this post. For a round-up of Tour/Album news for Adam and Kris, click here.

Fair warning : I only care about Adam/Kris/Allison…

Check back – once they are up, All PERFORMANCE VIDEOS (Adam/Kris/Allison) will be on PAGE 2. The Rest of the Top 10 will be on PAGE 3.


‘American Idol’ contestants, in Philly, start weighing career decisions today by John J. Moser

Iraheta … said she has already started working on her album, which 19 Recordings – the recording arm of 19 Entertainment, announced in June it has licensed to Jive Records. “Definitely, I already started working on it,” she said, and has even finisher the photo shoot for its cover. She said it’s about halfway done, and writing and recording continues on her days off from the tour: the producers simply find her studios along the tour path and she records – which she said she’ll do today.
“Each chance we get,” she says. “They find a place and then I go to and patch in some vocals and record it. mean, it’s kind of weird ‘cause it’s a totally different studio, but you definitely get used to it. And time goes by so fast that you don’t even have time to think about what’s wrong or what’s right, so you’re just pretty much going with the flow.” She said the plan is to “record several songs and just try knock them out. It’s better to have just a bunch, rather than to have less, so that we can have a bunch to pick out of. So I think that’s what we’re aiming to do right now, is just recording a bunch of stuff, and choose the best out of that bunch.”
Asked to describe the songs, she said, “They’re definitely rock, definitely rock. Songs are definitely aiming toward, lyrically, reality, as to what people are going through and what I went through in my life. So there are a couple of stuff I wrote myself. So I’m starting off with the rock vibe and the reality of life, pretty much.”

Backstage With American Idol Winner Kris Allen By Veronica Dudo

“We come out with an album in November. We’ve been working on it doing a lot of co-writing stuff so I think we have some good stuff so far. We’re trying to finish it out and we’re trying to get it out in November so I think it’s going really well.”
… Allen shares, “I can say that we’ve talked about having reunions and that kind of thing at everyone’s house like every year, having the 10 people come back and just have a good time. So, I would say we’re really close and we’ve had a great time spending it with each other and it will be a sad day for sure when the tour is over.”

Kris Allen: The ultimate interview, Part Four by Fred Bronson

And now you’re working on your first album for a major label. What is your vision for this debut release?
I think the vision that I have for the first album is so hard to put into words. I know that it’s going to be music that people like and something that is hopefully different than maybe people have heard in a while or maybe ever. I hope that it’s something that grabs people lyrically-wise, subject matter and even musically as well, but something that’s different from what people are doing right now.
Are you writing songs for the album?
I pushed for that. I wanted to be part of the writing process. I don’t know if I can. There’s so much going on right now with the tour and all that. But yeah, we’ve done a lot of co-writing sessions and it’s been an experience because you learn from people who have been writing songs for a long time.
Are you happy with how it’s going so far?
The first session I had went well, but the song didn’t end up as something I wanted to do on the album. I was intimidated, so I didn’t put my two cents in as much as I should have, and then the next one went really well and I got more comfortable. Same thing with the song though. Closer to what I wanted, but not completely there. And then I was with somebody yesterday and it was weird, but it went really well and I think it’s getting there. I really do. I’m excited.

‘American Idol’ champ Kris Allen on going country, reading tour reviews, and tackling Twitter! by Michael Slezak – see video on link

Kris Allen is a man of contradictions. The American Idol season 8 champ is scared of Twitter, and yet at the same time, loves the concise social-networking site. He’s reluctant to give scoop about his hotly anticipated debut disc, and yet he gives Idolatry exclusive info about his two newest songwriting collaborators. He reads tour reviews — even the too-cool-for-the-room negative ones — and yet ultimately, he doesn’t give a hoot about what he refers to as the “blahdee blah blah-blah.” (And this is why we love him.)
