I have seen the future of American Idol — and her name is Jax.
The 18-year old East Brunswick, New Jersey, singer is exactly the kind of artist the Fox competition needs. The second she sat at the piano and delivered a compelling, intricate version of "I Want to Hold Your Hand" by The Beatles, it almost felt like we were watching her winning journey begin.
Will 2015 be the year AdamLambert finds true love?
The American Idol season-eight runner-up playfully pondered that very question onstage in London on New Year's Eve, performing at Big Ben Live and closing out a triumphant year fronting Queen with a sold-out show. The concert at Central Hall in Westminster led up to the city’s traditional fireworks celebration along the river Thames. Big Ben, of course, chimed at midnight.
AmericanIdol ushered in its share of changes in 2014, including a new judge (HarryConnickJr.), a new set and a new production team. Season 13 also crowned a new Idol in CalebJohnson, but it was the show's alumni that grabbed the biggest headlines. From career victories to slip-ups, major life milestones and one tragic death, Idol Worship counts down the 14 most-talked-about Idol stories of the year.
AdamLambert always maintained that in his role as touring frontman for Queen, he wasn't emulating the late Freddie Mercury. But when it comes to vocal skills, the American Idol season-eight star can more than hold his own, said Queen guitarist BrianMay in a recent interview, noting that there are some things Lambert brings that even Mercury couldn’t do live.
KeithUrban often refers to his AmericanIdol co-stars as a family. And in a conference call with reporters on Wednesday, the country star said that his fellow judges came through for him in his time of need — the death of his father-in-law, Antony Kidman, dad to Urban's wife, NicoleKidman.
AmericanIdol fans probably never imagined a day when RandyJackson would no longer be "in it to win it," but so it seems for season-14 of the Fox show, the first that won't feature the former judge-turned-mentor.
It’s one week before the release of AngieMiller’s debut EP, Weathered, and the AmericanIdol season-12 alum is busy with a very important task: mailing out envelopes of goodies to her fans. “I have 1,400 packages that I am sending out today,” she says. “It’s crazy.”
For the first time ever, American Idol fans will have the chance to tell a hopeful "you’re going to Hollywood!"
Producers of the Fox singing series have added a new wrinkle, allowing viewers to have a say in which contestant will receive a coveted golden ticket to the show's Hollywood rounds, which begin the week of Oct. 25 (and air in the spring).
Lady Gaga joined Adam Lambert and Queen, the band that inspired her stage name, for a rocking rendition of the classic hit "Another One Bites The Dust" onstage in Sydney, Australia on Wednesday.
She joined the group decked out in a giant afro wig. Following her surprise appearance, the singer tweeted, "I just played with Queen I'm the happiest girl alive," then Instagrammed several pictures of herself along with guitarist Brian May and Lambert.
It’s less than a week before the release date of his new album, Horizons, and American Idol season eight winner Kris Allen is like a kid on Christmas Eve.
The 29-year old singer had just released a live stream of the collection on YouTube, and stayed up into the wee hours reading fan reaction on the Internet. While he excitedly waited to see which songs were emerging as fan favorites, he was most amused by one question about who the mysterious vocalist on one song was hitting an extraordinarily low note.
