Idol Alum Blake Lewis Splits With Record Label

We have a new record! After only seven months since his album hit stores, former Idol runner-up Blake Lewis has parted ways with his label, Arista Records, making it the shortest relationship and Idoler has ever had with any label. The Season 6 beatboxer did, however, make it clear to MTV News that he wasn't dropped. "My contract with Arista is up, and they didn't option me, so I'm with 19 Recordings and we're working on booking a tour," says Lewis. But don't think a little thing like parting ways with his label is going to keep this musician down. Lewis has already written four songs for his new sophomore LP that's in the works, and the artist says he may release the disc through his own label which he's working on launching. "I guess in the world of radio, selling 300,000 is not a success," explained Lewis. I beg to differ. I couldn't be happier, and my fans are amazing and super-supportive." — Gina DiNunnoRelated:• Idol's Season 8 Audition Sites Include Puerto Rico• more

Narrowing It Down to the Top 12

As bummed as I was after last weeks results show Im pretty OK with all of the eliminations made tonight I was puzzled by one choice among the four who went home but all in all I think this seasons top 12 is looking pretty solid No group performance tonight and instead we got Blake Lewis I was a big fan of his last season loved his You Give Love a Bad Name and it was good to see him again but his song How Many Words was totally ho-hum Speaking of ho-hum for those who didnt catch it Paulas single is not the No 1 downloaded song on iTunes as Ryan sort of implied but rather the top music video Which is only slightly less disturbing Anyway the first couple of guys to take their seats were no surprise namely David C who did some weird thing with his tongue as he was waiting to hear his fate and David A who seemed to think it was a foregone conclusion that he would be safe When it came to the girls turn it was no surprise that Brooke was tread more

Top 8 Girls

Youd think that tonights show was all about the girls but alas no the biggest divas of all were sitting behind the judges table Thats right Paula Simon and Randy were the stars of tonights episode and not in a good way I got utterly tired of Randy and Paulas self-congratulatory name-dropping Well when I worked with Oh yes I choreographed and Simons bitchy retorts not to mention the way the three of them held court just for themselves They seemingly spent forever on their own indulgent nonsense but when it came to actually critiquing the performances they gave several of the girls most notably Syesha barely a minute of attention Paula at least did seem somewhat more sober tonight though she spent a disturbing amount of time draped all over Simons lapBut unlike the judges I will not ignore the girls performances which were after all the whole point of tonight So without further ado On to the performancesAsiah Epperson read more

Tila Tequila's Hookup, and More New Year's News

The Shot at Love hoochie will count down to midnight for MTV as ringleader of Tila Tequila's New Year's Eve Masquerade 2008, featuring partygoers ranging from the sublime (Mary J. Blige, Wyclef, Paramore) to the ridiculous (Kid Rock, Perez Hilton). Of course, how literally the MySpace case will interpret the dropping of the ball remains to be seen and, odds are, will have to be seen to be believed.... Fox has added Jordin Sparks, Blake Lewis and Lifehouse to the list of performers for its New Year's Eve Live. The Cat Deeley-hosted special will also feature the premiere of Mariah Carey's "Shake It Off" video. — Ben Katner read more

Idol's Blake Makes a D-Pop-D-Deal, More Music Notes

American Idol's first runner-up is the second to ink a deal. Just days after Idol champ Jordin Sparks jumped in with Jive, Blake Lewis signed with Arista, says the Reporter. Blake's first disc is expected later this year.... A sneak listen of the first track off Madonna's new album netted mixed reactions when the deejay at Thursday's Pop Rocks bash sprung it on the crowd. "Everyone cheered and was excited, but when it started playing, few were dancing," a source tells the New York Post. "[It]sounds almost exactly like Britney's 'Slave 4 You.' The response was tepid at best." read more

On Tour with American Idol: The Jordin Sparks Q&A

Thirty-one million viewers watched live as she became the reigning American Idol. But, despite the Nielsen ratings, Jordin Sparks still insists her face isn't nearly as recognizable as her name. Hours before she took the stage in Sunrise, Florida, with the American Idols Live tour, the Season 6 winner spoke with TV Guide.
