Random news:

Casey Abrams confirmed, via twitter, that he suffers from a chronic condition:

Just to let every one know, I have ulcerative colitis. I’m always going to have it, but the symptoms are pretty much under control.

“I just thought people should know,” Casey explained to a fan, “I’ve been getting questions about it, so why not just get it out there, you know?”

Kelly Clarkson’s Album Delayed Until Fall (http://mjsbigblog.com/kelly-clarksons-album-delayed-until-fall.htm)...


I recently found out that my album won’t be coming out until September ….the album has been recorded but I can’t release it until then. I realize that is a long time but that’s the best time to release it apparently so I’m sorry for the wait but I promise you it sounds great!

Ratings are up (from mjsbigblog.com):

Nielsens: ‘American Idol’ surges 7% from 2010


Idol wild. The opening of American Idol’s top-13 round sang to 24.4 million viewers Wednesday, up by 1.5 million (a 7% gain) from last year’s comparable top-12 episode on Fox. Thursday’s results show was up 8%, to 22.1 million.

Lee DeWyze Next Single is “Beautiful Like You” (Nielsens: ‘American Idol’ surges 7% from 2010)

The label is releasing another single before they drop him? :confused: Lee is reported to be playing this song on Thursday night's result show.

Just to clear it up, because it isn't clear at all from your post, Stefano Langone's possible DUI happened a while back (before the show process began). I thought it happened this week or something!

This was probably discussed in last week's thread but I read that there will no longer be song spoilers because they are not allowing the audience into dress rehearsals anymore. Not sure why but it seems like they are going a long way to cover up a lot of things this year. Giving singers retakes, not going live, no audience in dress rehearsal. Seems a little fishy to me.

Tonight's theme is songs from the performer's birth year.

The Black Eyed Peas are also performing Thursday night.

We'll get song spoilers... leaks will happen. What we won't get is the preview of how the contestant did.

I know, that is how I knew it happened before but I figured not everyone would read the article. Just throwing it out there so those who dont read the article wont have the wrong idea. :)

Oh, and the Black Eyed Peas are performing? Then I will NOT be watching Thursdays show. Worst live musical act, EVER.

Casey Abrams tweeted Melinda Doolittle, saying "Listening to your audition for inspiration. Just thought I'd let you know. :)"

I thought that might be a hint about what song he's singing. She auditioned with a Stevie Wonder song, though - For Once in My Life --which was released long before Casey was born. It could be a good song for him, though, so maybe he's thinking ahead to next week? Or maybe there was a version released the year he was born?

I'm glad Casey has his ulcerative colitis under control now. It's probably hard to keep the right diet while he's on the show.

And speaking of health and diet issues on the show, Crystal has a new tv ad campaign out with her and B.B. King. She was so excited when she met him in Vegas and nobody knew what the meeting was for. Now we do. They're promoting a blood sugar monitor.

I'm bummed that they're taking until the fall to release Casey's album. It's good that they're not rushing it, but I wouldn't think they would have to take that long. I guess the labels really want to release in the fall. It must be especially frustrating for Kelly since her album already is done.

ETA: Oops! You're right taf! Some people really hate any kind of spoilers at all. Nigel spilled two song choices in an interview this morning: Hesaid in an interview that Casey is doing "Smells Like Teen Spirit," which is not something I would have expected. It could be good and he might have an interesting take on it, but I was hoping he would dial it back this week.

Thia is singing "Colors of the Wind." Not exactly a surprise.

EATA: I was looking to see if there had ever been a version of SLTS with the bass. Didn't find one, but did find this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VXVdNKciP94

It's done by the Ukelele Orchestra of Great Britain! So, who know what Casey will do with it.

Allskate - you should probably put song spoilers into [] spoilers. Not everyone likes to know ahead of time. No me, I already read the spoilers.

:mad:

Three ballads in a row? The girl needs to diversify! Luckily she is popular enough that she probably won't end up in the bottom three. But she is not going to make the top five if she keeps doing the same type of song over and over again...

Um, do you realize that you quoted my spoiler, so it's out there for everyone to see? :lol: I can't change your quote.

And Peter, I totally agree with you.

Thia is boring me to death and we're only in week 2 of the finals. I know she sings very pretty but unless your Susan Boyle, no one moves albums with a bunch of pretty songs these days, especially not young girls. It will only hurt her if she sings all ballads and then gets signed and suddenly comes out with a dance/pop single that radio loves these days. It will alienate her fanbase and no one else will know who she is so she will be destined to flop. Don't pigeonhole yourself, Thia!!

Has anybody read the new book out that's supposed to give all the backstage scoop on AI? I was flipping through it in Borders the other day, but didn't buy it. I did see the comments that apparently the vote between Kris and Adam wasn't even close. I figured one of you real AI junkies would have read it and given up the unknown scoop.

It doesn't surprise me that the vote wasn't close for Kris and Adam. I'm guessing Danny's fans swung about 99.9% for Kris. I'm guessing if the final two had been Danny and Adam, Kris' fans would've (mostly) gone for Adam, and if it had been Danny and Kris, I would've power voted for Kris like a mad tween. :D

I just watched most of it. :)

My teevee just said AI is live. Is it? Or just the little blurb about Japan was live?
