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

Adam LambertNow that we are starting to get a little deeper into this “American Idol” season, the stories surrounding some of the show’s former contestants are also starting to pick up a little bit of steam. We’re kicking off things here with some big news for all Adam Lambert fans living across Asia, but even those in America are going to ultimately have something to appreciate here (at least in the form of some new concert videos to watch).

In a post on Twitter last night, Adam proclaimed that this new international tour will be called “We Are Glamily,” and for those of you who have not seen all of the dates compressed into a single article just yet, they go as follows:


17 (today) – Seoul, South Korea

19, 20, and 21 – Tokyo

23 – Kanazawa, Japan

25 – Nagoya, Japan

26 – Osaka, Japan


1 – Manila, Philippines

3 – Shanghai, China

8 – Singapore

10 – Jakarta, Indonesia

13 – Minsk, Belarus

16 – Moscow

18 – Kiev, Ukraine

20 – St. Petersburg, Russia

22 – Helsinki, Finland

Adam has already said that he will not be touring tragically in America with “Trespassing,” but hopefully that will change following the release of his upcoming third album, which we know that he is already working on in some shape or form.

Jessica Sanchez tributes Whitney Houston – Do you remember Jessica’s memorable performance of “I Will Always Love You” from this past season? In celebrating Whitney’s legacy one year following her death, the season 11 star reprised the song in a new video with Billboard. Be sure to check it out below.

A new Haley and Casey performance – We’re going to close things off here with something that we always personally love to see: Haley Reinhart and Casey Abrams performing together. While at the House of Blues in Los Angeles recently, the two rocked out to a set that included “Hit the Road, Jack” (which was on Casey’s debut album) along with the Beatles classic “All My Loving,” which you can see below.
