Updated 60 Second ‘American Idol’ Promo

A slightly updated version of the season 10 American Idol 60 second promo hit the airwaves last night. This promo contains clips from each of the nine previous Idol winners at their auditions.

You know me, I have no problem with more David Cook.

I think the director of these promos has done a great job. I can’t wait to see more of the Idols in their hometowns.

So Idol fans, how are you liking the promos for season 10?

Kris Allen Covers U2’s “Stuck In a Moment”

Last night Kris Allen and guitarist Cale Mills performed in Conway, AR on the UCA campus.

The two of them covered one of U2’s hits, “Stuck In a Moment.” Definitely worth hitting the play button.

This is definitely one of my favorite covers that Kris has performed this year while on tour.

What did y’all think of his cover & what song do you hope he takes on next? And how awesome is Cale’s falsetto?

Music Review >> Lee DeWyze – “Sweet Serendipity”

“Sweet Serendipity” is the first single off of Lee DeWyze’s upcoming debut album, Live It Up. DeWyze wrote the track, along with David Glass (who also produced the song) and Jordan Lawhead.

Upon first listen, “Sweet Serendipity” is a lot more pop sounding than I was expecting from DeWyze’s first single. The song does have a slight Jason Mraz-y vibe to the melody that I definitely appreciate.

Right around the chorus is where the wordiness of the song becomes reminiscent of Kris Allen’s platinum selling debut single, “Live Like We’re Dying” that was released last year. The choruses of both of these singer’s respective songs are just packed with lyrics. In DeWyze’s case, his chorus is filled to the brim. I have to wonder how he plans to pull this song off live while staying on key, since singing on pitch wasn’t exactly what he was known for during his run on American Idol.

I do think that “Sweet Serendipity” is a good song. I figured that his first single would be a little more rough around the edges and not quite as polished. However, in a time where a song needs to be successful on the radio, I can understand why an upbeat and fun song was picked to lead off DeWyze’s album.

If you were a fan of DeWyze while he was on Idol, I think the song may initially throw you for a loop. Due to the catchy melody and lyrics, it should grow on you in no time.

“Sweet Serendipity” is available on iTunes now. DeWyze’s debut album, Live It Up will be released November 16.
