‘American Idol’ notes: Adam Lambert, Phillip Phillips, Hollie Cavanagh

Adam LambertAs we get ever closer to the start of the Super Bowl on this very sports-centered Sunday, we have a few stories to share first and foremost from the world of “American Idol.” For those looking to see Jennifer Hudson’s performance of “America the Beautiful” prior to kickoff, be sure to check back at the home page just before 7:00 p.m. Eastern time.

Adam Lambert looks ahead to future touring – As you may have heard already, there is not going to be a world tour for “Trespassing” like there was with Adam with the Glam Nation Tour and “For Your Entertainment.” While this may be sad, be sure to remember this: there is still more reasons than we can count to be excited about what is coming next for him.

After a question came in yet again during a Twitter chat with fans recently, Adam ended up saying the following about the multitude of locations that he visited to promote “Trespassing,” and how excited he is already to get more music out there (which he will hopefully be able to tour with down the road):

“I’m grateful for all the promo travel around the US & UK this year as well as some other areas. We celebrated Trespassing so fantastically! I’m super motivated about future recordings!! Ready to create more for you guys!! So many ideas!!!! F**k yeah! :)”

The “Gone, Gone, Gone” music video is coming – While Phillip Phillips’ new single has yet to really build much traction on the radio (which is hardly a surprise given how slow a build “Home” was), Phillip went to his own Twitter account recently to hype up the music video for the song:

“Just got through watching the music video for ‘Gone’ & i hope yall like it. We achieved what we were aiming for!”

Whenever the video does come, be sure to come back here: we’ll have it up as soon as possible.

A Hollie update – Finally, check out a few seconds of a new original song from another season 11 contestant in Hollie Cavanagh, who has moved to Los Angeles and is working on original music now. Honestly, it’s a little hard to tell how good the song is based on just a few seconds of singing, but it sounds like it could be catchy.
