The remaining nine contestants for the ninth season of American Idol took songs from the Lennon/McCartney songbook with difficulty of trying to be original. Then the show announced that last year’s runner-up Adam Lambert would be next week’s mentor for a still unnamed theme.
Adam Lambert has sent the message “It’s the FCC heat” on his Twitter account. The FCC received a complaint from law firm Liberty Counsel demanding that it should fine the network “for airing such an outrageously lewd and filthy performance during a show and time period that is targeted for family audiences.”
American Idol season 8 finalists are releasing their albums one after the other.
A small indie recording label is planning to release an unofficial Adam Lambert album containing material that the American Idol runner-up co-wrote before his run on AI.
