Adam Lambert to mentor Idol Contestants

Source: ABC News

**UPDATE 4/13/10: This week’s theme is Elvis Presley songs.**

Season 9 of “American Idol” has certainly been interesting. Unfortunately it isn’t for the contestants. Aside for a few stand out performers, this season has kind of been a bit dull. The product placements and show promotions have certainly out shined the contestants’ lime light which sadly strays away from the objective of the competition. Guest mentors were first introduced during Season 2 of American Idol, but as for this season – the mentors have been questionable. First it was Miley Cyrus but now Season 8 runner-up Adam Lambert? Adam Lambert will be featured as the guest mentor on April 13, 2010, and he is scheduled to perform on the results show on April 14, 2010.

Thoughts?

Former American Idol alum Allison Iraheta recently finished the American Idol Tour and sat down with Pop Eater to talk about her debut single and life after Idol. Iraheta placed 4th last season [on Idol] but during the summer it was announced that she signed with 19/Jive Records. Her debut single is called “Friday I’ll Be Over U” which is currently streaming on Pop Eater or can be heard via the YouTube video below. Her debut single is catchy and has a rock vibe and it sort of reminds me of Avril Lavigne’s “Girlfriend” in the sense that it is upbeat and fun. According to Entertainment Weekly, Iraheta’s debut album is slated to be released on Dec. 1st.; I am intrigued to hear what the rest of the album sounds like.

Idol Spotlight Performances – 5/12/09

So the Top 3 performed two songs on American Idol last night, one of which was Judge’s choice, and the other was contestant’s choice. In my opinion, the highlight performances were Adam Lambert’s take on “One” by U2, and Kris Allen performing “Heartless” by Kanye West. Check out their performances right here…all videos are courtesy of American Idol.com
