"Well, don’t you look prettier than a glob of butter melting on a stack of wheat cakes!"

I found the above quote on "Southern Quotes" Being from NJ, I have no idea what expressions people in the south use, or if anybody actually uses this quote, or what "Wheat Cakes" even are.  Here we eat pancakes and say (contrary to popular belief) New Jersey, I've never personally met anybody at all that says "Joisey", but I do admit we pronounce Coffee "Cawfee".  <3  Anyways, these are lovely <3
 
 




 

Scotty McCreery, Michael Orland, Behind the Scene Idol Coaches Dish Top 11

    'American Idol' behind the scenes: 'Idol' coaches talk the Top 11 taking on Elton John -- EXCLUSIVE


SCOTTY McCREERY — “Country Comfort”
MICHAEL ORLAND: He was a little freaked out about Elton John week. He didn’t know what to do. But when he found that one, he was beside himself. He actually came up to me the day before, and said, “This is the first week I am so excited about my song choice, and I’m definite about what I want to do.” He’s not always. He has to find something that will fit his genre and we can tailor make to him. This song was just perfect, and I think it was a great pick for him. He went into the week feeling really confident. I thought he had that on stage tonight. In his makeover, when they did the fashion shoot, he had a new hair do, and all of a sudden he had some hair product in there. He said yes to hair product!

Country Comfort, American Idol, Scotty McCreery, I Am Proud To Be A Fan,

Tonight I just felt proud! As I watched Scotty on stage tonight sing with such heart and joy, I felt what we could all see in his momma's eyes. PRIDE... Tonight for me Scotty didn't just make me love country music, he made me proud to be his fan. Tonight for me Scotty grew up on that stage into a performer, a man, a Star.  I don't know what will happen with American Idol, but I know this. I will be there when the first single drops to buy it. I will buy the album, I will support him, and be here.  It's truly an honor to be his fan!

USA Today, OH I like this! Scotty McCreery, American Idols , great review!



This review is full of win !! "With a sly wit behind the aw-shucks charm."  McSly  <3



Scotty McCreery: The deep one
It's easy to underestimate Scotty. His rumble of a voice and strict country orientation seem more like the marks of a one-trick pony than a dark-horse winner. But his Nashville covers are accomplished and mature well beyond his years, and you could say the same thing about his general demeanor — he's the best in interviews, with a sly wit behind the aw-shucks charm. And the inspired way he countrified Stevie Wonder last week breeds confidence he can easily do the same with Elton John tonight.

Simon Fuller to personally manage American Idol Winners and The Runner Ups career

The last Idol Simon Fuller took a hands on approach with was Adam Lambert.  Having Simon manage the careers of Both the winner and runner up is a huge advantage in the music industry! He previously has guided the careers of such former Idols as Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Jordin Sparks, David Cook and Chris Daughtry, but stepped back ,and has only taken on Adam Lambert in the last few years.  As you can see, he has far more success with the artists he guides than other management has. 


Simon Fuller Partners with 19 Entertainment to Guide the Career of the Winner of This Year’s ‘American Idol’
Mar. 29, 2011 (Business Wire) — Simon Fuller in partnership with 19 Entertainment and CKX, Inc., will be managing this year’s winner of “American Idol”.

“American Idol” is currently the No.1 show in America. It was created and is executive produced by Simon Fuller.
This new arrangement will be the first time that Simon Fuller has personally managed an act from the show since he launched Adam Lambert’s career in 2009. Over the last eight years, Simon Fuller has guided the multi-platinum careers of a select handful of award-winning Idol singers, including Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Jordin Sparks, David Cook and Chris Daughtry.
Currently in its tenth season, “American Idol” remains a ratings smash and a critical hit. Working closely with 19 Entertainment and

    'American Idol': Who exactly IS the frontrunner?

    American-Idol
    Image Credit: Michael Becker/Fox(4); Frank Micelotta/Fox/Pictur
    The most exciting development to come out of this week’s American Idol? No, not Naima’s pants. Or Casey’s save. Or even Paul’s sensual back massage for Ryan. Nope — it’s that for the first time in Idol history, it’s clear there is no obvious frontrunner. Think about it: Back in season 1, before she was unceremoniously booted far too soon, Tamyra Gray appeared unstoppable. In season 2, Clay Aiken and Ruben Studdard jockeyed for frontrunner status throughout the entire season. In season 3, Fantasia rode her audition-day success all the way to the finish. Same with Carrie Underwood in season 4. In season 5, Daughtry rocked Idol voters’ hearts before having to settle for finishing fourth. In season 6, Melinda Doolittle appeared to have the win in the bag before Jordin Sparks found momentum with “I (Who Have Nothing)” on British Invasion night. Season 7 was all about the battle of the Davids.

    To all the Philippine and Malaysia fans that have visited the blog this week.  After USA you guys are the highest visitors. Last week it was Bulgaria.  Scotty has fans all over the world <3 I love how much  Malaysia and Philippines have supported American Idols.  A few years ago Cookchuleta headed there to put on a concert that OVER 50,000 fans went to see.  Upon arriving at the airports THEY WERE MOBBED, and I mean MOBBED by fans!! A look back at that experience! I had no idea they liked Country Music over there haha! <3

    This video is hilarious to me.  Fans are mobbing David Archuleta, security doesn't know which way to turn, it's chaos, and he turns to the camera with a big grin and waves and goes "HI" !! lol I love their enthusiasm!! Thanks for visiting here, We're glad you stopped by <3

    American Idol Official Tour Page 2011

    SEE LINK BELOW

    DID I MENTION IM SO EXCITED FOR TOUR?!?! I Have only gone to see ONE American Idol Tour, and that was season 7.  Cookchuleta <3. 

    I learned a lot from that experience.  When season seven tour PRE -SALE tickets went on sale I manically refreshed Ticket Master with my special early access POPTART code that was given at the American Idol official site. ( It allowed you access to the pre-sale)  I was so excited, and bought the tickets.   Here's what I learned from that.  Those tickets were lousy seats!!  Better seats were available during the regular sale, and then 2 days before the show I went to Ebay, and snagged 2 floor seats for 20.00 bucks!!  So, if you're heading to tour this year, don't let the pre-sale hype getcha!! Although, it's a great way to secure a ticket, there will be other ways.  Not saying DON'T buy presale, just letting you know if you can't, or find that the seats Ticket Master is assigning you don't float your boat, it's not the end of the world. 

    http://www.americanidol.com/tour <-- American Idol Tour Page, Nothing new there yet, but I can't wait!! I will add this to the right side bar,

    Did I mention IM EXCITED FOR TOUR.  Especially since there doesn't seem to be any rivalry's like Season 7, some David Cook fans literally got up and left when Archie sang, and "vice versa"  NOT ALL,there are a lot of wonderful Cookie and Archies out there,  but it was sad! Being a CookChuleta I was shocked at the immaturity of ADULTS at that show.

    The Recording Industy. How much does an artist actually get paid, Scotty McCreery, American Idol

    The Label, The Agent, The Artist, The A&R Rep, The mess of it.

    I will be doing a blog on Monday in attempt to explain the Music Industry in Layman's terms. What happens when an Artist is signed to a recording label? Essentially, they themselves become a Business. In order for a recording artist to be successful there are a lot of pieces to the puzzle. I've been following music careers of other idols for several years now, and it's very frustrating. Here is a breakdown of what the artist will pay and to who after they are signed. This is based on if they manage to sell 200,000-250,000 thousand albums.  Last years winner Lee Dewyze hasn't broken 200,000 and either has Crystal. Kris Allen isn't doing that well either. David Archuleta recently LEFT his label and management team.  The numbers aren't pretty.  Actually it's pretty sad.  The label advances to the artist MONEY, but then everybody takes a piece of the pie.  Get ready to be shocked.  Here ya go...

    Band member net income each: $ 4,031.25

    The band is now 1/4 of the way through its contract, has made the music industry more than 3 million dollars richer, but is in the hole $14,000 on royalties. The band members have each earned about 1/3 as much as they would working at a 7-11, but they got to ride in a tour bus for a month. The next album will be about the same, except that the record company will insist they spend more time and money on it. Since the previous one never "recouped," the band will have no leverage, and will oblige. The next tour will be about the same, except the merchandising advance will have already been paid, and the band, strangely enough, won't have earned any royalties from their T-shirts yet. Maybe the T-shirt guys have figured out how to count money like record company guys.

    Simon Cowell Endorses Scotty McCreery, sort of - Do we even care?


    "The only person I can remember is the young kid with the deep voice, the country singer. But I'd be lying if I said that I knew enough about any of the contestants to have an opinion."
    So is this really an endorsement of the youngster? It depends on how you look at it -- in the case of Cowell, it may merely be good that Scotty is finding a place somewhere in his memory. Scotty has been the favorite of many thus far -- including the audience. He has yet to be in the bottom three, and has also not been met with too much in the way of harsh criticism. (Then again, the judges have been nice to pretty much everyone all year.)

    Master Class Lady reviews top 11 Vocal Skills


    While some might not appreciate this review. MasterClassLady is a very renowned VOCAL Teacher.  Her reviews are always interesting, as she does so from a vocal coaches stand point, and makes worthy comments that highlight the artists skills, while also emphasizing  what they need to improve on. She has made positive comments in the past regarding Scotty.  Her review on Scotty this week is.....

    "Scotty just sounded and looked very karaoke to me and he was straining for those upper notes. He is a genuine performer and communicates fairly well, but does so while tilting his body sideways. This needs to be addressed as it makes him look very awkward on stage."

    Yikes SHOCKING RESULTS TONIGHT ON AMERICAN IDOL

    Nigel tweeted this about 10 minutes ago:
    \Alert: Shocking #AmericanIdol news tonight!!!

    Soo who goes?? ...

    Dial idol has them listed in this order top to bottom

    1 Scotty     
    2 James
    3 Jacob
    4 Pia
    5 Setfano
    6 Hailey
    7 Naima
    8 Thia
    9 Paul
    10 Lauren
    11 Casey

    Dial idol only has the top 5 placed in the safe zone. Dial Idol has been known to be way off.  Idk if Idol can use their save tonight because it determines the tour. When they use the save, the following week 2 go home, so then the tour would be 9?? Idk how this will play out.  I think if it's Casey they'll use the save.  I'm just not sure how it will all pan out.. yikes!!!!!

    American Idol mansion haunted? Idols pack up and move out..... ummm okie dokie

    http://mjsbigblog.com/american-idols-flee-haunted-mansion.htm



    The supernatural drama began after contestants complained about bizarre flickering lights inside the house … followed by a spooky spider infestation.
    But the paranormal activity that sent the contestants over the edge happened last week — when several wannabes claim they watched a bed sheet suddenly take on a life of its own and FLOAT down an empty hallway!!!


    Idk what to say to this! ROFL!! I think stalkers were running around under those bed sheets, maybe it was Simon Cowell trying to figure out how to sabotage the Idols, maybe it was the dude who told Scotty he couldn't be in his group during Hollywood week trying to sneak back in to apologize for being such an A$$  ...either way, WHAT THE!!

    SCOOBY DOOO WHERE ARE YOU???!!!

    'American Idol' behind the scenes: 'Idol' coaches talk the Top 11 -- EXCLUSIVE

    SCOTTY McCREERY — “For Once in My Life” (Stevie Wonder)
    MO: Listen, I sit in a room with all 11 of them when they go through all their songs, I’m sitting there playing piano. So I get to hear what they all go through with their song picking, which is awesome. Scotty, I thought, was going to have the hardest week of everybody. But he didn’t. I love how, now, they want the contestants to be who they are as artists every week, so just incorporate whatever style is into whatever theme we’re doing. For him to take that song and turn it into that Harry Nilsson feel, it made it so great for him.
    He totally took that second verse and changed the melody himself. It was his idea to do it, to hold that high note at the end. He showed some high notes last week, but he showed some even higher notes this week. He’s already developing his own style, the way he hold the microphone. He has learned how to work the crowd and the camera. That’s like way beyond his years. When he said he wanted to do this, I was like, “What are you going to do? That Stevie Wonder version?” He was like, “No, I want to slow it down.” It just worked for him. I love that he changed the melody up. I loved that little wink at the end.

    Because I love Jim over at MTV you shall have your own own post  This review is full of win, and had me at Goat... Yes Goat :D




    By: Jim Cantiello in Music

    Scotty McCreery
    Song: Stevie Wonder's "For Once In My Life"
    Verdict: Pimped Ain't Easy
    During the night's next Coke "Real" Moment, Ryan Seacrest shared incredible footage of Scotty hurling a basketball from an "Idol" mansion bedroom balcony into a hoop across the driveway. It's like "Idol" was saying, "Even if Scotty's new jack country swing isn't your cup of tea, and even if you don't enjoy his newly-adopted aggressive hand choreography, he's still the most perfect human specimen who has ever walked the Earth, so you better vote for him or else." McCreery pushed his vocals further than we've heard thus far, but was still smart enough to end on his deep-toned money maker (or "lady killer note," as Randy called it). Let's all close our eyes (except you, Stefano) and imagine Scotty singing a low F# causing hundreds of tween girls to fall to the ground like a herd of fainting goats.

    Possible Song spoilers For Scotty McCreery, American Idols

    THESE ARE NOT CONFIRMED.... I REPEAT NOT CONFIRMED!!  HIDDEN FOR THOSE WHO DONT WANT TO SEE

    This is all the info I have for tonight

    He's putting a "Scotty twist" on his song and he's "kinda pumped" about it.  That's all I know  :D 

    Hmmmmm.... this is basically NOTHING lololol.... But I'm glad he's pumped, and I can't wait to see the Scotty Twist.... hmmmmmm I wonder if it's anything like the Scotty Sprinkler, or as most saw on twitter the other night... #TeachmetoScotty   :)  If anything else comes up I'll post it here, but I'm not counting on it. 

    This came from AI forums <3

    Will we be able to meet Scotty on the American Idols tour this summer?

    THAT DEPENDS ON HOW HARD YOU VOTE!

    Tonight is Motown night, and also decides which 10 Idols make the American Idol 2011 Summer Tour.  A little information about the summer tour.  Every year the American Idols head off on a whirl wind tour. Performing somewhere between 30-50 times across America.  The fun of it for the fans, and the idols (aside from the obvious of hearing them perform live) is also THEY COME OUT BEFORE EACH SHOW AND MEET FANS.  Fans generally get to  the venues early in the afternoon and begin the frantic "Bus Search".  The Idol buses usually roll in around 3-4pm, at which time the Idols head inside for a few minutes, and then return outside to sign autographs, accept gifts, talk with fans etc. If your not familiar with this process here is a quick video from past idol tours, and a fan favorite moment from Season 7 Idol Tour


    And one more Cause season 7 kinda ruled :D


    Don't you want to meet Scotty?!!?!?! Get a hug from him???? Give him a gift???? Even if it's just a letter???? THEN TONIGHT VOTE!! Don't you want to see him appear on that huge stage in front of thousands of people??? Do you want endless tour videos, and interaction of him at the buses video???? Don't you want his autograph???  Let's make sure he makes it into the top 10!!  :D 

    Also, after each show the idols come out again to sign autographs, this is usually A LOT more crazy, and they usually just run down the line signing their initials. 

    I have a family function tonight, so please throw in some  extra votes because I don't know what time I will be back.

    **I kinda liked season 7 A LOT !**
