'Idol' News Beat: Siobhan Magnus Records, Plus Alex Lambert Homelessness Update

by Hilary Rothing, posted Feb 15th 2011 5:00PM
Remember way back when Season 9's Alex Lambert claimed, via Twitter, to be living on the streets? Then a rep from 19 Entertainment, which has a development deal with Lambert, claimed the contrary, citing a retainer from which Lambert recieves monthly checks.

Well, Lambert, who's been tweeting away over the past month, had this to tweet about 19 Entertainment's reponse:

"19 entertainment put me on a retainer>>?"

Then, in a response to a tweet from fellow season 9–er Andrew Garcia asking what a retainer is (umm), Lambert followed up:

"$$$ dude! These guys have been telling the media they been payin me! Makin me look like im lyin! It's a shame dude!"

by Hilary Rothing, posted Jan 18th 2011 6:04PM

Alex Lambert'American Idol' season 9 semi-finalist Alex Lambert is now homeless and living on the street, according to his Twitter account.

If we're to believe the unverified "TrueAlexLambert" is indeed the mullet-sporting Texas crooner, he's fallen on some pretty hard times after appearing on the web series 'If I Can Dream,' which was created by 'Idol' executive producer Simon Fuller.

"Ever since IICD ended I've been kinda homless! Sleepin on the street and behind buildings. I have a choice to stay and persue my career or go," tweeted @TrueAlexLambert.

Alex Lambert's Guest Blog: 'Idol' Finale and Second Chances

by AOL TV Staff, posted May 27th 2010 4:20PM
Alex LambertAlex Lambert finished in the Top 24 on this season of 'Idol.' Many viewers were shocked by his elimination and felt he'd gone too early -- enough to gain the attention of Simon Fuller, who offered Lambert a spot in the 'If I Can Dream' house.

'IICD,'
which airs 24/7 or in segments on Hulu.com, centers around a group of actors, musicians and models living together while honing their crafts and searching for fame.

Lambert, who joined
Something Pitchy's podcast last week, guest-blogged about attending the 'Idol' finale and what life has been like for him post-'Idol.'

It's been a month and a half since my run on 'American Idol' ended. Just enough time for me to be able to be there at last night's 'Idol' finale and really enjoy it without feeling too much regret.

A lot of great stars performed last night. A couple of the highlights for me, personally: I really liked Bret Michaels. I thought he was amazing, and his performance with Casey [James] was great. Janet Jackson was super hot, and it was so great to see her perform live. Also, the red carpet was legit! I got to meet a lot of people I've been dying to meet!

American Idol, Top 12 Revealed
Ryan Seacrest said there would be a few surprises on last night's episode of 'American Idol,' and that certainly proved to be true. You have to wonder if Vote for the Worst came into play, although even the worst contestants are still really, really good to have made it that far. Let's take a look after the jump, and see which four got eliminated.

'American Idol' - 'Top 8 Boys Compete' Recap

Quick! Someone explain to Simon what a "binky" is. After a weird show opening on Tuesday involving Ellen sitting on his lap, Ryan starts the show on Wednesday asking why Kara and Simon are sitting so close together this season. He then calls Kara Simon's "binky," which confuses Simon greatly. All in all, the lady judges cannot get enough of Mr. Cowell this week.

Tonight's episode is really exciting, because for the first time so far, it's going to be kind of difficult to find two contestants to eliminate. Overall it's a strong night of performances, with a couple of pleasant surprises. I definitely have my favorite, how about you?

'American Idol' - 'Four Finalists Eliminated' Recap

We're getting rid of another four people this week, getting us ever closer to a Top 12. Are we going to lose who you think we are, or is Vote for the Worst going to come in again and skew the results? These are the questions we have to answer. Well, they're some of the questions we have to answer. We also need to find out if Danny Gokey still has a career, and if we can have more than 70% of the contestants not look completely dead inside during the group sing.

We're going to look at the poll results from the last two episodes and see if who you guys think are going home are actually the ones to leave, or if we're going to get some curveballs thrown at us. Personally, I have faith in your ability to predict the future, so let's see how you do!

'American Idol' - 'Top 10 Guys Perform' Recap

American Idol - Top 12 Guys Perform
Ok, a little change-up to start the show off. The ladies were scheduled to perform tonight, but Crystal Bowersox was taken to the hospital this morning (no word on what the deal is), so the top ten guys will be performing. I hope Crystal's doing alright, and that she'll be back on track to sing tomorrow night.

This spurs Ellen DeGeneres to reminisce about the time her back went out and she did her show from a bed. Ryan Seacrest remembers that, and says he actually was in the bed with her at one point. That's just interesting all the way around.

So far, both the guys and girls have been lackluster in my book, but Simon Cowell thinks the girls have the edge. Either way, the two guys and two girls with the lowest number of votes will be out on Thursday night. So vote for your favorites! Let's move on and see if the guys kick it up a notch tonight. Let's hope so.

'American Idol' - '4 Finalists Eliminated' Recap

It's the first elimination show of the year! Generally, it feels like a huge loss when four contestants are eliminated all at once, but based on the lackluster performances by both the girls and the guys, I have a feeling that unless there's some huge shakeup, few tears will be shed.

But before we get to all that, we have a (lip-synced?) Top 24 performance, and 'Idol' winner Kris Allen makes an appearance, along with runner-up Allison Iraheta. We also get to see Kara's husband and one of the contestants in a bathrobe, so let's get started!

I don't know about you all, but I was severely underwhelmed by the girls' first performance, so my main hope going into the Top 12 guys' performance is that it won't bore me to death. I also hope that I can get back in sync with the judges a little more tonight, because my opinions differed wildly from theirs.

Two hours later, one of these things happened. While the guys had more high points than the girls, they were generally underwhelming. However, the night was not without its funny moments and mini-heartbreaks, and at the end of it, Kara DioGuardi realized she needed to hire a lawyer.

'American Idol' - 'Hollywood Round #4' Recap

by Kona Gallagher, posted Feb 18th 2010 12:45AM
didi benamiLast night, we had roughly 30 minutes of content spread out over two hours, so for this hour-long episode of 'American Idol,' 15 minutes of actual stuff sounds about right. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the pace with which we sped through the remaining contestants. There wasn't a lot of hullabaloo, just people sitting in chairs and discovering their fates.

There were a few surprises, but for the most part, the people you thought were going to make it did. What really worked for me in this episode is that the focus was on the people who got in, with a relatively short amount of time devoted to watching the rejected contestants cry. 'Idol' has a tendency to linger on peoples' pain a little bit too much, so it was nice to see that they refrained here, for the most part.
