‘American Idol’ notes: Adam Lambert, Phillip Phillips, Kelly Clarkson

A new work week is upon us, and for thus that means plenty more in the way of “American Idol” notes! We’re starting off this time with some new video from an Adam Lambert performance, and ending with some airplay notes coupled with Kelly Clarkson’s latest cover.

Adam hits up Melbourne – As a part of his publicity tour in Australia, the season 8 star stopped by one of the nation’s largest cities in order to perform a¬†Guerrilla¬†Gig put on in part by Channel V.

The video we’ve included below is of “Naked Love,” and the spirit of freedom in this song works well give the circumstances of the concert. It was a free gig, and this led to all walks of life getting an opportunity to kick back, relax, and enjoy some of Adam’s music. This performance in Melbourne comes near the end of his tour, as he was in Sydney earlier in the week.

The latest “Home” update – For those of your curious as to how Phillip Phillips’ “Home” is performing on the charts, it is still going strong when it comes to the Hot AC format. After sitting last week at #14, the coronation single / theme song for the U.S. Women’s Gymnastics Team has reached a new peak in #12. He also has made some headway into the top 40 chart now for the first time, and is sitting at a respectable #36. We still don’t know if the song will be much of a hit on pop radio but his Hot AC performance does bode well for some music that he is working on for his debut album coming out this fall.

Kelly Clarkson covers Florence + the Machine – Finally, you can check out a performance of the original “American Idol” cover one of the biggest songs ever by Florence Welch’s band in “Shake It Off.” It’s hard to have anything negative to say about this performance at all, mostly because we admire so much what Kelly continues to bring to the table musically and show different sides to herself.
