‘American Idol’ Grammy notes: Kelly Clarkson, Adam Lambert, Jessica Sanchez

American IdolWith this edition of “American Idol” notes, we’re going to focus on one of the biggest events in music happening on Sunday nights: the Grammys. While you don’t see any other major American singing competition at the moment playing a role in the CBS awards show, you better believe that this show is going to have quite a presence there.

Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood are both nominees for the big night, and we’re hearing that as a part of her performance, she is going to be taking on the classic song “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman.” For those of you who are historians of “American Idol,” then you know already that this is something that Kelly slayed all the way back in the early days of the show. If you haven’t seen it, watch and enjoy.

Of course, Grammys are more than just the actual show, and there is an entire weekend of celebrations and pre-show parties. One event, the Friends ‘N’ Family Party at Paramount Studios, drew the likes of former Grammy-nominee Adam Lambert along with a successful former “Canadian Idol” contestant in Carly Rae Jepsen (who most people in America don’t even realize was on a reality show). Adam, by the way, was snubbed for one of the best pop albums of the year in “Trespassing.”

There was also another pre-Grammy event that took place at the ESPN Zone At L.A Live this week, and this included appearances by the likes of Kris Allen, Jordin Sparks, Jessica Sanchez, and Crystal Bowersox … who, in case you haven’t heard, will be on Broadway later this year playing the part of Patsy Cline.
