Simon Fuller’s interactive entertainment venture ‘If I Can Dream’ has behind the scenes footage of Alex Lambert on the set of his ‘I Didn’t Know’ music video, set in New York City. “The concept of the music video was, there’s like 60 pianos all around New York,” the ‘American Idol’ season nine semi-finalist explained. “I went around to all these pianos and played ‘I Didn’t Know’.” Watch the clip via Hulu below.
Hollywire’s Katie Krause talked to Alex Lambert and Giglianne Braga from the ‘If I Can Dream’ web series about pranks, Alex having the show’s new theme song, Justin Gaston and their ‘American Idol’ picks at the 2010 Young Hollywood Awards. As for who should replace Simon Cowell when he heads to the American version of ‘The X Factor’ next year, Alex suggested Gene Simmons of KISS. Also of not, Alex, who was bleeped on an ‘Idol’ episode, cursed during the interview. Watch it via YouTube below.
Ousted ‘American Idol’ season nine finalist Alex Lambert performed ‘Butterflies’ live for Popstar! when the magazine visited the ‘If I Can Dream’ house. Alex also thanked fans for their support. Watch both clips via YouTube below.
It hasn’t received much attention, but during Thursday night’s ‘American Idol’ semi-final elimination show, the audio cut out when Tyler Grady was eliminated from the hit FOX show and Alex Lambert was safe. Lambert, a 19-year-old high school student from North Richland Hills, Texas, had been told by Simon Cowell his performance was “the most uncomfortable performance of the night” the prior evening. A Fox spokeswoman did not immediately respond to the Associated Press to clarify why the audio was apparently censored.
Surprisingly little traffic about the incident was posted on Twitter when searching for “Idol censored” or other word combinations related to the muted audio.
Update: A posting at Vote For The Worst’s message board says Lambert’s words were, “You’ve gotta be fu**in’ shi**in’ me.”
Update 2: A Fox spokesperson confirmed to E! that “the audio was dropped by broadcast standards due to language.” No word yet on whether this will prompt ‘Idol’ from dumping Lambert.
