Can Kris Allen Come Through With A Commercial Success?

3/17/2016 7:00pm EDT
Commercial Success Hasn’t Come Easy For Kris Allen
Unfortunately for former American Idol victor Kris Allen, not all commercial success fueled by the once juggernaut of singing reality competitions is created equal. Allen pulled off the upset when he beat ‘assumed’ American Idol frontrunner, Adam Lambert. As many who disputed the results of the show thought, Lambert would outperform all of Allen’s albums, including scoring a no. 1 album with Trespassing. As for Kris Allen, he’d miss the top 10 of the Billboard 200 altogether: Kris Allen (no. 11), Thank You Camellia (no. 26) and Horizons (no. 80).

So why did Kris Allen fail to become a vi...

25 Most Underrated Songs Of 2015 (So Far)
Not every record ends up being a hit. In fact if you think about it, only a select few songs end up with the distinction of hit status. The songs featured on this list are terrific, but none of them have been profound in the commercial department. Arguably, the best way to describe these songs are ‘underrated’ – they are the ‘unsung heroes’ of the year as well as their artist’s respective album. All deserve the same respect if not more than the hits, but they can always bask in their critical acclaim. These are the most underrated songs of 2015…so far.

Review: Adam Lambert Delivers The Goods On 'The Original High'
Adam Lambert DIDN’T win American Idol season eight. WHAT! HOW DID THAT HAPPEN? What’s wrong with this picture? A lot was wrong with it, but despite the loss, Adam has scored a gold album, and a historical number one album among other accolades. The Original High is the prodigious pop musician’s third proper album, and there’s plenty to sink one’s teeth into – some dance, some balladry, a killer duet, and more!

“Ghost Town” commences The Original High in danceable fashion, giving Lambert a catchy, modern sounding record. Compared to previous album openers, “Ghost Town” is a bit of a ‘...

Lambert hasn’t achieved the level success of the franchise’s most decorated alumni, but he definitely has had his moments. A bit underrated, over the course of major label albums, Lambert has certainly delivered some awesome music. Here are 10 of the best Adam Lambert songs.

2 Reasons Adam Lambert Supports 'Fox' Ending 'American Idol'
It was the show that helped launch his professional music career, but Adam Lambert says he has no problems with American Idol ending its run – and he has two simple reasons.

Lambert recently sat down for an interview with host, Alyona Minkovski, at HuffPost Live. There, the 33-year-old singer chatted about his life after Idol and projects he’s working on.

And when the burning question was raised to Adam about whether or not he “felt sad about the television show’s demise,” Lambert simply shook his head, signifying a resounding “no.” Simply put, the Glam Nation Live artist is just peachy a...

Longtime Band Scores First No. 1 Album

Muse Rocks Its Way To First No. 1 Album With 'Drones'
Another week and another new number one album on the Billboard 200. This week, British alternative band Muse takes the top spot with Drones, their first number one album. Muse’s numbers weren’t the sexiest ever, but the 84,000 units are respectable, with nearly all of those units being pure sales. Interestingly, Muse’s last three albums have debuted in reverse order – The Resistance at #3, The 2nd Law at #2, and now Drones at #1. Wasn’t Muse totally destined to spend some time in the penthouse eventually?

The only other newbie to the Billboard 200 top ten this week came courtesy of ...

10 Of The Biggest Hits From 'American Idol' Contestants
Say it ain’t so! The popular singing competition, ‘American Idol,’ will be ending after its 15th season in 2016, and honestly, it’s a little hard to believe. Since its inception in 2002, American Idol has been a staple in not only reality shows, but pop music as a whole, and it’s just not going to be the same once it’s gone.

This is no time for sadness, though -- it isn’t gone just yet. So, in the meantime, we should celebrate some of the biggest hits that have spawned from the show’s contestants. There’s been a lot of them, and they’re all fantastic for a ton of different reasons.

36 Celebs That Are Out And Proud
For so many years, celebrities had to hide their sexuality. Afraid of not getting work or keeping the jobs they already had, so many men and women of music, television and movies lived closeted and non-authentic lives. Today, these talented individuals use their sexuality not only as a platform for truth, but also as a way to assist other young people to be true to themselves and not live a life in fear. Some may surprise you, others are well-known to the LGBT community. Their stories instill hope that sexuality will become less of an issue then living an inspired life.

It's Fashion Fail Time! That means we take a break from letting you know how good all of your favorite stars look to show the other side of fashion: the fails!

Adam Lambert's suit could be trying to show cherry blossoms on a cloudy day, but from here it just looks gross. Plus, he buttoned up and didn't wear a tie.

This looks like something Paula Abdul would wear early in her career, because it was the late 80s and this would be considered fashionable. Thankfully, we don't consider this a good look nowadays.

We still hate animal prints and Samantha Ronson has some yellow zebra str...

The former American Idol runner-up says that Miley, whose sexually-charged performance with pop star Robin Thicke has been heavily criticized, was just "having fun".

The teen singer took to the stage wagging her tongue and twerking to hit single "We Can't Stop" before stripping down to a fleshtone pair of rubber undergarments while Thicke took the stage to belt out his hit "Blurred Lines". The performance featured severa...

'American Idol' Recap: Angie Miller's Shocking Exit + Finale Preview

5/10/2013 8:31am EDT
Angie Miller is eliminated on AMERICAN IDOL
Since Kelly Clarkson, it's only happened once and this season it isn't going to happen again.

'American Idol' has developed a curious pattern over the years: That of never getting its winner right. Every year a clear winner emerges early, and every year that clear winner goes home before the finale. It doesn't pay to be the best in this competition.

After years of seeing this happen, it's become clear why the best contestant never wins: It becomes boring to vote for them. They peak too soon and after months of being on top and the clear favorite, it just seems unnecessary to keep voting f...

You Must See These Terrible Album Covers!

3/5/2013 6:59pm EST
Are These The Worst Album Covers Of All Time?
Some singers and musicians just don't have much talent when it comes to having an eye for artwork.

Most of the time an album cover has a lot to do with sales, so imagery that's interesting, sexy, mysterious, etc., is always a good thing.

Take Miley Cyrus's 2013 release, "Bangerz", for example. The peach-to-purple color mix with two photographs of houseplants with a superimposed miley staring blankly at the camera looks more like something out of "Miami Vice" circa 1984 than a modern pop record. Throw in the neon "Bangerz" sign and it now looks like a newspaper promo for a south Florida st...
