Carrie Underwood gets her ninth No. 1 song with ‘Temporary Home’

CarrieUnderwood-TemporaryHome

Carrie Underwood’s gentle ballad about a foster child “Temporary Home” hits the top of the country chart. This is her ninth No. 1 hit.

She has seriously yet to have a song not do well on the charts. Every major country single she has released has gone top 2. It’s an incredible four-plus year run that few artists have ever achieved.

- Ace Young and Diana DeGarmo hobnob with the New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg at a dinner where he joins them on stage in “Hair” garb. Oh, and there’s Snooki and the Situation from “Jersey Shore” too!

Congrats to Carrie! Again!

So, has everyone gone over the list of songs for R & B night? Have y’all made your choices?

Deirdre, I’m sure the best is yet to come. No choices or predictions, other than Tim annoying everyone except Negs and somehow still avoiding elimination.

Congrats to Carrie. My condolences to Diana, for many reasons.

I was going to ask if everyone had made their song choices except for Tim, who we all wish was gone anyway. Then I thought I’d get Neg mad at me…although, considering the abuse I get from him occasionally…making him mad should be the least of my worries!

The latest Idolatry videos are out and as usual, spot on! If you’ve got the time, watch all three. It’s worth it…especially the Japanese horror film references and scenes from The Big Labowski.featuring The Dude!

Now that he’s made the tour, it is time for Tim to bow out. Mission certainly accomplished for a guy initially cut before the semi-finals. If he lasts another week, vote for the worst is giving him the record for most weeks helped, surpassing the legendary Sanjaya!

oh please. the kid ain’t THAT bad. now if he sang, looked and danced as bad as taylor hicks then i could understand all the tim bashing. sheesh. the only three who are actually entertaining are big mike, siobhan AND tim. the rest? one big snoozefest.

OTTB, Gotta disagree. Tim is uninspired, flat and unappealing. Nice body, which has gotten him through with the squealing teen girl cliques, but not really a voice worth listening to for the length of a CD. Be honest and compare him to any successful male solo artist, and he’ll come up weak every time (with the possible exception of Justin Bieber, who I frankly question as a male at all), LOL

LOL, Rickster…. insert :swoon: :sigh: smiley here.

True, he ain’t THAT bad. Well, neither am I, but I’m not on Idol. This is the “majors” not the little league where you get the trophy just for showing up, imo.

I agree in part with what OTTB is saying, but that is only because the bar is so low this season. There are always the mediocre singers who get through, and Tim is better than Sanjaya. At least Tim seems to still be trying. I can see where Tim would have more appeal than Sarver or Scott from last season.

Heather, Justin is female.

Justin ought to change its name to ‘Pat’ – after the SNL character.

Androgynous?? How about Nondrogynous! :-)

I’m not bashing Tim. I wanted him to advance each time up until now. Paige and Lacey weren’t remotely interesting whereas I can see that Tim adds a little fun to the ten man tour. But, I don’t see anyone else that should be cut before him. We’ve got down to the group that actually has talent.

Before any Andrew bashers come on here, remember that a studio you get a decent amount of time to get it sounding right. He could put out a catchy song or two like Straight Up. Katie and Aaron are better singers than Tim, though admittedly dull personality wise.

Well, I do know a female named Justin, but that’s another story for another time. ;)

I don’t see the TUrban leaving this week, but I can see a guy leaving this week. Andrew, maybe? I’m surprised Tim and Aaron Kelly aren’t splitting the tween vote.

I agree, K&CF. If Andrew doesn’t come up with something better this week, he should be in big trouble. But he may have a large voting block behind him.

One question: With this line up, what does it say about any projected numbers for the tour? I’m inclined to believe ticket sales will be WAY down this summer! :twisted:

My prediction: Not Andrew or Tim. After giving her best performance of the year and still winding up in the Bottom 3, Katie seems to be the one with the most limited fan base, so I’ll predict she gets booted. Archuletta 2.0 has assumed the pole position for the tweenies, stealing away poor Katie’s middle school thunder.

All the rest are lead-pipe locks to go through for another week.

TMZ has learned Chikezie Eze did not pass the smell test with the L.A. County District Attorney, who has charged the “American Idol” castoff with the crime of attempted grand theft for allegedly trying to buy 2 bottles of cologne with fraudulent credit info.

Chikezie was arrested last February after trying to buy cologne at Neiman Marcus …. prosecutors say he fraudulently tried using credit information rom a man named Willem Grandia.

And only at Neiman’s would two bottles of cologne constitute grand theft — the tab was $1,289.57.

In addition to the misdemeanor grand theft charge, the D.A. is prosecuting Chikezie for misdemeanor identity theft.

Thanks, D. I just checked back. :lol: Now, Highlander, how do you do the red-faced anger?

That is terrible about Chikezie. He has ruined his life over trying to get something for nothing and taking someone else’s identity, to boot. And, for goodness’ sake–cologne?

Time for me to bid adieu. Highlander, I will check back to see if you tell me how to do that one. :)

They have a smell test? That’s the worst part of it all – he failed a smell test!

Just so you know, I smell like a real man. Yeah baby!

Two bottles of colgne for almost $1,300.00 – has to be Clive Christian. I sniffed it once at N-M and it WAS heavenly… but what idiot would spend that much money on a scent?? Not many, obviously, since the Clive Christian store in Buckhead went out of business. Poor Chikezie – they’ll probably call him “Stinky” in prison.

$1,300… sheesh. A quart of motor oil only sets me back a few bucks and lasts more than a month.

Carrie is indeed one of a kind and she is still very sweet,down to earth yet mature and more confident and keeps getting better and better.She will be heading down to US next. I’m sure that Carrie Underwood Tickets will be a sell-out too! coz she has been a good ambassador of country music and remains true to herself.
