‘American Idol’ notes: Adam Lambert, Jennifer Hudson news

American Idol -Do we remember how to do this? It’s been a good while since we’ve done an “American Idol” notes piece, where we do some quick-hits concerning what is going on in the world of some of the most-famous contestants to come from the show. Given that this is “American Idol” season, though, now does feel like the right time to start to actually revive this for at least the next several months.

Adam’s Lambert’s new rehearsal video – We’ll begin here by talking about something that Adam, a frequent favorite here, is teasing out for what could be some upcoming performances. The song he is doing here is Jessie Ware’s “Wildest Moments,” and it is definitely a nice listen.

Of course, the downside to it when Adam first posted it on Instagram is that the social-media site has limits on how long your videos can be. Luckily, this is what YouTube is for! Enjoy the full teaser below, and start wondering just what sort of performances Adam could have coming up in 2014.

Jennifer Hudson’s new music video – For those of you who are big-time fans of the woman otherwise known as J-Hud, be sure to check out the music video below for “I Can’t Describe (The Way I Feel),” which also features T.I.. Clearly, this song is making Hudson pretty happy already. She already has more than 300,000 hits on this video within the span of 24 hours. Impressive, no? It definitely shows that even without “Smash” or many other headlines these days, Hudson clearly still has it.
