‘American Idol’ notes: Jessica Sanchez, Adam Lambert, Haley Reinhart

Adam’s been all around the world lately.

We have quite a few new videos to share as a part of our Monday morning edition of “American Idol” notes, and without further ado we’re going to start things off courtesy of the perpetually-busy Adam Lambert.

A performance and an interview – First, we have a clip below from Adam’s recent T4 appearance in London, where he talks a bit about performing with Queen this summer as well as new single “Never Close Our Eyes.” The funniest part of it, though, is how he attributes a recent victory in a best-looking man in music poll to Justin Bieber fans being asleep.

After spending some in London, Adam returned to the United States this past weekend for a performance in San Francisco. During the free concert, he paid tribute to one of his favorite artists ever in the late Donna Summer as he mashed-up her hit “Last Chance” with his song “Cuckoo” from “Trespassing.” The performance quality … well, let’s just say it is what you would expect from Adam.

Jessica reflects on “American Idol” experience – We have another new look at Jessica Sanchez from the season 11 media day, and she had a chance to show off more of her personality than she really did on the show. In the chat below with “Access Hollywood,” Jessica opens up about being able to go home to her San Diego neighborhood for the first time since leaving the show in May — and also how some of her normal activities include eating at her favorite Mexican restaurant and playing video games.

Of course, Jessica also admits that her newfound fame makes it pretty much impossible for her to enjoy life in the same way that she once did — even though she certainly enjoys her life the way it is now.

A new Haley Reinhart performance – We’ll close things here with a new performance from Haley Reinhart for TouchTunes in Las Vegas. The song is one of her tracks from “Listen Up!” in “Wasted Tears,” and it’s enjoyable as always. We do wish that the lighting was a little bit more dynamic, though.

We’ll be back for more “American Idol” news all week — and we hope you’ll join us! Feel free to share your thoughts in the comment box below.
