WELCOME 'HOME': Just last week we were writing about Phillip Phillips earning his eighth No. 1 on the Billboard charts. Well, what a difference seven days can make. The season 11 winner’s coronation song, “Home,” achieves pole position on two more charts this week, bringing his career total of No. 1s to 10. That moves him up into a tie for ninth place among all Idols for the largest grand total of chart-toppers, tied with Adam Lambert and Scotty McCreery.
Last January, ColtonDixon was cooling his heels in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, waiting for the 11th season of AmericanIdol to unveil his audition to the world -- and his eventual rise to the top 12.

Adam Lambert never has been shy about expressing himself, but he admitted Thursday that he was a little surprised his LesMiserables Twitter review had “gone viral.”
His initial comments, in which he opined that the film was “Visually impressive [with] great emotional performances. But the score suffered massively with great actors PRETENDING to be singers,” drew so much attention that even one of the film’s stars, RussellCrowe, addressed Lambert’s concerns.
