Kelly Clarkson doing a free gig for Q100 tonight at the Loft

Kelly clarkson hotIdols such as Jason Castro, Kris Allen and Jordin Sparks are doing radio concerts this month.

Kelly Clarkson will be at the free Q100 Loft concert tonight. (I’ll be covering it.) Sparks will be the sold-out Star 94 Jingle Jam Thursday featuring Justin Bieber, the Fray and Leona Lewis, too. I expect to make that one, too. Based on what they did in New York at the Z100 Jingle Jam, Bieber will sub out for Chris Brown to sing “No Air” with Sparks. Kris Allen, Allison Iraheta and Adam Lambert were there, too.

Based on sales and airplay, Kelly Clarkson ranked No. 14 for the year as artist of the year, according to Billboard. (Atlanta’s T.I. landed at no. 8; Georgia’s own Zac Brown Band came in at No. 20.) Taylor Swift was No. 1.

-I’ll tape the Jennifer Hudson special on ABC for sure tonight and will recap for tomorrow. I have a sense there won’t be any wacky skits.

-Poor Ruben Studdard. He drew fewer than 150 people to a Monroe, Mich. cancer benefit concert.

“I’m disappointed,” said Gerald Richards, a promoter whose Soul Lyfe Entertainment brought Mr. Studdard to the River Raisin Centre for the Arts to cap an evening of entertainment meant to raise funds for the Monroe Center Cancer Connection. He said he wasn’t sure the event proceeds would cover the expenses.

Snowing and Kelly, very nice tie-in to the holidays, Rodney. Lots of little end-of-year “Idol-ness” going on. It’s a nice treat for the fans…Kelly had quite a decent year. Her album sales haven’t been astronomical, but she’s definitely gotten her fair share of airplay. I’m guessing that’s what’s helped her do so well.

Jennifer’s special seems to be more of a “Holiday” one than Carrie’s…and I did like Carrie’s.

I feel really bad for Ruben, that is awful! Wonder how well they promoted the event…

PS. Rodney, hope you got my email… :)

First of all,Welcome back Rickster,I tried to say that twice last week and tell you that I was glad your son and d-i-l were alright,but pacman wouldn’t let me!

Nana,not much change with Bruiser except that he won’t eat,not much that I can do about it.
For all of you that haven’t got a clue as to what I’m talking about,my high strung bi-polar Chihuahua has had a series of mini strokes dating back to September,the worst one was last week.

I think I’ll skip the Jennifer Hudson special because I’ll be watching the Singoff instead.

I liked Ruben, though he seemed to be a one-trick pony. And it seems his management have been way too narrowly focused on his promotion since he hasn’t had much, if any, Top 40 radio play.

Or maybe it just reinforces the idea that, at least to the music buying public, the wrong guy won.

At least Ruben is still doing music, I couldn’t even tell you what the other guy is doing. Granted, I don’t want to know what the other guy is doing.

This weather is driving me crazy. we’ve been sicked in with fog all day and now we have thunder and lightning along with heavy rain. When will it end!?

Anyway….as you know, I’m a Lambert fan but this video shows good reason why Kris Allen won this year.

That would be “socked” in with fog.

As for Kris…so cool, so jazzy, so good.

Thanks for the link, D.

Great rendition! But what the hell has he got on his head? Looks like a black Marge Simpson wig!
Guess he figured RH had already mastered the fedora look and didn’t want to suffer by comparison! :-)

Thanks for the video D. He made the song is own for sure.

One should have to drive in this weather. It’s awful and makes seeing very hard. I’m so ready for clear blue skies.

What is with that stupid hat? I tried to listen to the song, but I couldnt focus as I was distracted by that thing. Speaking of Ruben, how many years before Kris is just pulling in 150 to gigs?
