Over the top?

or hits the mark? Being a huge American Idol fan I love seeing what these singers do with the careers they are handed. Just being in the top 10 virtually assures them a record deal but they still have to prove they can sell records. I was super excited when I heard Kris Allen's single "Live like we're dying" but radio has yet to really pick it up. I wonder why?! It's a good song!

I was watching the American Music Awards last night and saw Adam Lambert perform the first single from his upcoming album "For Your Entertainment". I wasn't too impressed and thought it was a little over the top. However, I kinda liked that he was pushing buttons and being provactive. It was even censored for west coast viewers. "You know honestly, if I offended some people... it's apples and oranges. I'm not an artist that does things for every single person," Adam told Access' Shaun backstage following his racy performance of "For Your Entertainment," where he kissed male keyboardist Tommy Ratliff, who is straight. "I'm not going to be surprised that they edit it," he continued. "People are scared and it's really sad, I just wish people could open their minds up and enjoy things, it's all for a laugh, it's really not that big of a deal."

Watch it and let me know what you guys think. It's also been out for a few weeks and I've yet to hear it on the radio.

Plus check out his album cover...

It's a little "Ziggy Stardust" meets "Xanadu" don't ya think? All skate, everyone skate. I wonder if glam rock will catch on in 2009!

I have both Adam's and Chris's albums (what we do we call them now, down loads?) and Chris's is okay his single is his best and then you have to wait until the end of the dl to hear Heartless which he did on Idol.

Adam's dl is very good and gets better and more interesting with each listening. (I have listened to Chris's 3or 4x) It's very diverse with excellent ballads and driving rockers. His recorded version of Let Me Entertain You is better than his AMA performance.

I just found your blog through a comment on Rad homo - I think I'm going to enjoy it!

Thank you for checking out my blog and for the comment. I haven't checked out either of their CD's yet but I just love Chris' single.
