‘American Idol’ notes: Mariah Carey, Adam Lambert, Jessica Sanchez

Thanks to everything that is currently going on in the world of “American Idol,” we have a few more stories to share from around the internet. Where do we begin? With Mariah Carey graciously reminding everyone that she is not just on the show this season for the sole purpose of hating Nicki Minaj.

Speaking in a press conference on Monday talking about the first two days of auditions, the “We Belong Together” brushes off all of the rumors that she and Nicki hated each other with something that we are really not too used to hearing from the media these days: logic:

“How can we feud in two days? I think a feud takes a little longer.”

Minaj also added that she and Mariah are in fact getting along just fine, and that there is really no dissension in the ranks.

Adam Lambert’s concert winner – Adam Lambert shared the winner of his “Trespassing” fan video contest today, and as our way of also sending some congratulations out there, we’ve posted the victorious party below. It’s not only a tribute to Adam, but it’s also fun in its own right and certainly deserving of the honor.

 Jessica Sanchez arrives in Manila – The top 10 from this past season have arrived in the Philippines, and of course, Jessica Sanchez was met with thousands of screaming fans and cameras all over the place.

Just in case you are halfway around the world from us ad want to catch a glimpse of some of the idols, we’ve enclosed what is a tentative schedule for where they will be appearing over the next few days leading up to their September 21 concert.

Wednesday – As a part of a mall tour, Jessica, Elise Testone, DeAndre Brackensick, Heejun Han, and Erika Van Pelt will be at Eastwood City. Meanwhile, Phillip Phillips, Colton Dixon, Joshua Ledet, Skylar Laine, and Hollie Cavanagh will be at the Glorietta Activity Center. All events start at 5:00 p.m. local time. It’s a smart move to separate Jessica from Phillip on here, mostly so that not one venue is too overly crowded.

Thursday – Beginning at the same time as the day before, Jessica’s group will be at the Alabang Town Center; meanwhile, Phillip’s group will be at the Venice Piazza McKinley Hill.
