With Halloween celebrations underway on Wednesday -- and trick-or-treating rescheduled to Nov. 5 in New Jersey by Governor Chris Christie's executive order -- one American Idol seasonseven favorite is already dreaming of a white Christmas.
Brooke White will digitally release her new CD, White Christmas, on Nov. 6 via iTunes. Other online retailers will release the record Nov. 27.
IT'S CHRISTMAS IN OCTOBER:Scotty McCreery and Adam Lambert appeared on American Idol two seasons apart and one was a winner and the other a runner-up, but they have something very specific in common this week: they both score debuts at No. 1 on the current crop of charts, bringing the total of No. 1 hits for the popular TV franchise to 365.
RCA Records and 19 Recordings today officially announced the release of Adam Lambert’s Trespassing EP. The eight-track collection includes remixes of four songs from his second album of the same name -- the title track, “Trespassing,” “Never Close Our Eyes,” “Better Than I Know Myself” and “Pop and Lock.”
Halloween is arriving a month early for fans of American Idol's Adam Lambert. Taking to Twitter on Wednesday night, the season eight runner-up announced a "dress up" contest to promote his next single, "Trespassing."
Graduating from a show like American Idol, it's a given that alumni will know how to deliver a stellar performance, whether of a song of their own a classic or a recent hit. But during summer 2012, the cover count has been especially high.
'MORNING' HAS BROKEN: It’s amazing that no one thought of this earlier. On Monday, Mandisa will finally perform her Christian hit “Good Morning” on the most obvious platform: ABC’s Good Morning America. The dawn appearance comes eight months after the song made its Billboard chart debut, and is likely to send the track to a new peak position on at least two surveys.
It looks like Adam Lambert isn't the only American Idol that can rock out to KISS. Season nine alum Siobhan Magnus completely nailed a blistering version of the band's 1970s classic "Love Gun" at the Cape Cod Melody Tent on Thursday night.
If running up the Billboard charts were an Olympic event, Phillip Phillips would be collecting three gold medals today. Thanks to some valuable musical exposure on NBC’s broadcast of the summer games for his American Idol coronation song “Home,” Phillips’ tune races 47-1 on the Hot Digital Songs chart, 44-1 on the Hot Digital Tracks chart and 10-1 on Rock Digital Songs.
The battle for the American Idol judging job continues as season two finalist Kimberley Locke is the latest name publicly lobbying for the position.
"I would love to sit in that chair and, you know, give some advice from the contestants' standpoint because I've been on that stage and I know what it's like," the former second runner-up told the Associated Press on Monday.
With Mariah Carey'simpending arrival at the American Idol judges' table and Randy Jackson's status still unconfirmed, rumors abound about who'll take the open seat. Will it be a country star or does it make more sense to replace exiting rocker Steven Tyler with another?
Think about it: rock singers (with guitars) generally do well with the Idol audience. You could even say one took the title this year. But Phillip Phillips aside, David Cook, Chris Daughtry, Bo Bice, Constantine Maroulis,James Durbin and now Colton Dixon have made the genre proud.
Few can match Steven Tyler's success fronting Aerosmith, of course, but there are plenty more options of the long-haired and tattooed kind worth considering.
The rumor mill is running on fumes at this point as practically every pop star imaginable has had his or her name floated as a possible replacement for American Idol judges Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson. Not that any of the three music-turned-TV stars has made an exit announcement -- official or otherwise -- but hey, it’s fun to play this game! Not.
