American Idol winner Kris Allen led worship on Sunday in the Verizon Arena, Little Rock, AR during the New Life Church Decade Celebration. Allen was the worship leader there before he tried out for American Idol. Members of his church also assembled on a regular basis to vote for Kris Allen while he was on American Idol. Kris Allen also was seen at the New Life Church when Idol flew him home for his Homecoming right before the Season 8 American Idol finale. Kris Allen got very emotional this time around praising his band member Caleb as seen in one of the videos of Mjsbigblog. Caleb was also there supporting him. Kris Allen mentioned that it is different between performing for people who are worshipping God and those who came to the arena to see him on other occasions. Kris thanked his pastor and church for his prayes and text messages. This comment of a reader stood out to me.”It says something about how much he wanted to take part in this service that he flew from LA yesterday and back to LA again pretty much right after this event today. he must be pooped! He sounds fantastic in this video (his hair, on the other handThere will be more videos posted in the morning“
American Idol Runner up Adam Lambert is obviously not a big fan of Teen Sensation Justin Bieber. Lambert tweeted on Monday 14th February 2011, @adamlambert said: CeeLo was great too but Idk what the hell Gweneth was doing up there. Usher and bieber’s dancing was sick- but their vocals? Eh. Just being honest.” I am not sure if Bieber fans spammed his twitter page as they did once Esmeralda Spalding won the title instead of Justin Bieber.
Season 7 Runner up David Archuleta was dropped by his label Jive and his management. See here.
American Idol Winner Fantasia Barrino felt the sting of rejection by not being asked to be part the Aretha Franklin tribute so she decided not to go to the Grammies even so she won a Grammy on Sunday for best vocal performance. According to billboard.com she called in to a show on BET saying: “I’m going to be very honest with you. You know I wasn’t at the Grammys last night. I’m kind of going through my own little thing… Last night they were honoring someone who is my idol, Aretha Franklin, and there is no way I could have sat there and not got the happy feet and wanting to jump on the mic because she is my favorite so I felt like, you know, at the end of the day I should have been on that stage so, I kind of did my own little thing last night.I watched Cee-lo’s performance, I love Cee lo, love Gaga, watched Gaga, and I love Rihanna’s performance, but I kind of cooked and did my own think last night and was in my own world and was hoping that I won. I have this feeling, like every year I go, I feel like they always look over some of the good singers that are still around and I’m not trying to be funny but that’s just the way I felt.” Jennifer Hudson was asked to pay tribute to Aretha Franklin. She competed for the American Idol title during Fantasia’s season. Jennifer Hudson has surpassed Fantasias success with being an Oscar and Grammy Winner.
