‘American Idol’ notes: Adam Lambert at Pride, DeAndre Brackensick, Jennifer Lopez

Adam LambertFor those of you who want news about both “American Idol” and some of its stars, you are definitely at the right place. This edition of the notes has a little bit of everything, beginning with where you can see Adam Lambert tonight in Pittsburgh.

The former season 8 star is going to be literally rocking out in the streets of Pittsburgh tonight, for the city’s “Pride in the Streets” event. We’re hearing that his show begins around 9:00 p.m. Eastern, but there are going to be some acts both before and after him throughout the evening. Events actually start at around 6:00 p.m. tonight, so if you’re in the area and want to have a good time, you’re probably going to have one there.

You can see a video of a sound-check that happened at the event today below (source), and we’ll be back in the morning with more highlights from the event.

DeAndre Brackensick’s new video – While we don’t have a video to post at Cartermatt for this, we thought you’d be pleased to find out about DeAndre Brackensick’s visual re-creation of “Her Crazy.” You can view it over at the link here, and we want to know what you think about it!

Jennifer Lopez speaks out – With this, can we finally put the idea of J.Lo being back as a judge for another season to rest? The singer told E! News that thanks in part to her work schedule filling up, she will probably not be back for more on the show. Of course, the feeling may be mutual as the show recently hired a new executive producer in Per Blankens, and we believe that he is going to move in a different direction that re-hire anyone from the Nigel Lythgoe era.

If you want to hear what Steven Tyler had to say recently about being “gentle” during his time on the show, all you have to do is head over to the link here.
