Kelly Clarkson’s ‘Stronger’ holds strong on top of Atlanta radio for fifth week

Kelly Clarkson’s “Stronger” remains unstoppable as the most popular song in Atlanta radio for five weeks.

The original “American Idol” winner has a top song on B98.5 (32 spins), Star 94 (66 spins), Wild 105.7 (87 spins) and Q100 (94 spins). Total the past week: 279 spins.

Katy Perry’s not far behind with 236 spins for “Part of Me,” but isn’t getting as much love at Star 94 (41) or Wild (51) as they are with Clarkson.

Otherwise, there doesn’t appear to be any other songs on the horizon ready to take the place of “Stronger.”

Great news for Kelly! After that long spell without a new release, so glad her songs have gotten big.

The girl’s career is back on an upswing. Hit record, TV appearances on “The Voice” and now “Duets.”

@ RodneyAnd speaking of “Duets” – I saw a new ad for the show that showed John Legend.

Wasn’t Lionel Ritchie supposed to be one of the four judges/mentors/whatever?

Just proves that some babies born without a brain, ala “Private Practice” actually do survive, and show up on this blog occasionally, witness this am! Certainly brainless posts.

Sam-A and Rickster, this sounds like a person who caused a bunch of trouble a few years ago. I have sent a note to the powers that be about him.

Good for Kelly

Otherwise, some of this reminds me of someone I used to know. If you know what I mean.

Does sound a bit familiar, Harriett.

I see that Clay is still around on Celebrity Apprentice. Good for him.

I’m really tired. Friend and I have been on the move pretty much non-stop since she got here. Now that she is on her way back home, I’m going to enjoy a few days sitting at the computer.

Deirdre: Sounds like you had late nights and good food! Fun to catch up with old friends you don’t see often.

What sort of immaturity creates a being that thinks this crap is funny? That concept is a out of reach for me as actually liking Joshua’s singing! And why the same stupid post over and over?

O/T – my team won on Amazing Race even having to go back and do the roadblocked. They kicked butt and came in first place 8x. So, so, so very happy that “Annoying Rachel” and “Girl hips Brandon” came in last! He’s a wuss and she’s a calculating idiot (a possible oxymoron).

Pitchy: I agree with the “green” team – so glad they didn’t win. But I hated that hateful pilot know it all who treated his poor wife pretty badly. I wanted the border guards to win, especially after they gave the poor old TN guy $5000 from their 1st place win of $10,000 – for his daughter’s medical needs. I feel like had they won, they’d have given the TN guys some of the winnings. They were pretty good guys. The TN guys are almost the only ones ever on this show who were never underhanded or mean to any of the other teams – I feel so sorry for them – both obviously in terrible financial states.

Pitchy

Originally, wanted the TN (wait, I thought they were from Kentucky) friends to win, but one they were out, it was a toss up between the pilot and the border guys. I would have been fine with either one. But, thanks for reminding me about their generosity and giving half their winnings. I wanted the border guys to win too. I was hoping there was a consolation prize for 2nd place. So many got turned around last night.

@Pitchy. The couple that won earned it. They simply outclassed the rest of the bunch across the board. I know everyone gets some money but it’s a major dropoff after the $1 million if this site is true: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20081207213756AAm0hbI

Rho – that’s what I said, they came in first 8x. Had to go back, and still eclipsed the other players by being in first again.

That’s like MegaMillions here. You get 3 numbers right and mega ball only to win $10.00. HUH?

Deirdre

May 7th, 2012

3 numbers plus the megaball is $150.

Don’t watch Amazing Race but according to the people at the Emmy Awards it’s always the best reality show.

Deirdre, in the last blog Rodney stated (hidden in a paragraph of bold type) that David Cook and Jennifer Lopez would be performing. Well David Cook will be performing, Jennifer Lopez will be acting.

Nope. JLo is performing(oh goody) and David Cook

Latest rumor: Miley Cyrus as new host of “X Factor.”? No doubt she’d be better than Steve Jones. But that’s not saying much. How about Rachel Crow? http://www.hollywoodlife.com/2012/05/07/miley-cyrus-x-factor-host/

JTesla

Miley as hostess? Nah, I can’t see it. Whats his face was bad, but how could Miley be any better? Either way, it’s just one more woman for Simon to try to sleep with.

Someone said the contestants could sing songs they wish they would have wrote? Here’s a few suggestions:

Joshua – have him sing Rebecca Black’s “Friday” and put his scream, um, I mean “spin” on it.

Phil – Sinatra’s “My Way”

Jessica – Tiny Tim’s “Tiptoe Through The Tulips”. That’s really perfect for Deandre, but since he’s out and Jessica can warble her voice, let her take a go at it.

Hollie – Elton John’s “I’m Still Standing”

@Deirdre ~ are you serious. The machine told me I had won $10. Maybe it was 2 numbers and the megaball…thanks.

JTesla

Regarding X-Factor: I don’t understand Simon’s reasoning for grabbing three young female washed-up-has-beens. Demi and Miley won’t pull in the young demographic, their former fans are now of the age where they are probably embarrassed by the fact that they went so nuts over those two.

Idol contestants songs they wish they’d written: I will vote for anyone that chooses the Happy Birthday song. The contestants will probably go artsy or pick something that fits their voices, but the honest choice is a tune that brings in mucho dinero.

Never trust the machine Pitchy. One woman won a million bucks and the machine told her that her ticket wasn’t worth anything. Always look it up at galottery.com

Pitchy

I realize that Deirdre – that’s when I went to the cashier and she said $10 too. Guess I must have had 2 numbers and the ball.

Sam-A

There’ve been reports of shady cashiers telling someone they won nothing or a pittance, then pocketing a ticket that actually won big bucks. Saw it a couple of times on the ABC Friday night show. I always check on Galottery.com so I know for sure. Never win anything, but why take the chance.

Anyone see the TV Line video review and commentary on Idol last week – Melinda’s thoughts, etc.
Maybe already posted, but if not, interesting to watch……….

The lottery people tell you to sign the back of your ticket as soon as you buy it. That way someone can’t tell you your ticket is worthless then go cash it after you trash it.

I haven’t read many posts yet, but Mercedes, re the X Factor… well, I’m pretty unhappy that Simon’s hired some Disney child with no experience (and apparently no singing talent either) to judge. I think that’s an absolute joke.

Britney doesn’t bother me, because it’s good to see that she’s trying so hard to pull herself back after almost going over the edge. I wish her success.

But anyway… I said last season that if the best singer won, then I’d watch again. So I will. And I’ll just hope it doesn’t become unwatchable. :-)

Wait. Did Rodney just say they are looking at MILEY CYRUS to host?

Has Simon lost his mind?

I might have to renege. I really doubt much of anyone would watch the show if that does happen.

Pitchy, I usually love Amazing Race, but for the first time skipped most of this season. (I never set a series recording, kept missing it, and finally just fell too far behind.)

But, I did catch a little bit of the finale last night! My perspective from not knowing anything about them… I liked the couple that won. (Though I guess they didn’t act so great during the season?) I also liked the ones that came in 4th.

However… what the heck? Was that other “Rachel” person (the brown haired one, not the winner) a joke? She was INCREDIBLY NASTY. One of the nastiest I’ve ever seen on that show! (Of course, I’m sure during the “previously on…” clips they picked the most notorious… but ewwww! I was rooting for anyone but her to win!

RoHo…Did you ever do an article about Duets? I see that Kelly Clarkson is involved along with John Legend and other stars. The promotion takes a little aim at Idol (Randy’s pitchy “critique”). I don’t think it’s a huge snub at Idol, but it seems companies feel that though Kelly’s experience, she can finally lead a reality singing show that will surpass Idol.

….I guess.

Still catching up, and just chiming in very late to say I LOVED the TV Guide rant. Thanks, Seth!

@bknsty14 from over the weekend – quote – I so agree with the writer that throughout the competition, Hollie has been the best vocalist (VOCALIST) and will be in the business for many years. I can sleep soundly tonight knowing I wasn’t just imagining things and other people feel the same.

…You definitely weren’t imagining things. There are quite a few of us on here that feel the same. As does my husband, and pretty much all of the group we often watch with.

Sure, there is a minority out there that doesn’t like her voice, but that’s par for the course… it’s true for even the best singers. Heck, I even remember people who didn’t like Carrie during her season! I remember reading or sometimes hearing people say she screamed or was shrill… I always marvelled at how in the world they didn’t hear her talent.
