The results are finally in and congrats to Alex who placed 2nd for favorite American Idol radio single!!!! Now you may be thinking, “What radio single?” Well, that’s the best part about it! Alex doesn’t even HAVE a radio single and he still beat out all the other idols to win 2nd place for his song “I Didn’t Know”!! Add to that the disadvantage of us finding out about the poll with only 1 day left to vote and I’d say that’s a pretty amazing feat for our favorite crooner!

In 3rd place was Kris Allen’s “Live Like We’re Dying” and the winner, of course, was David Archuleta’s “Crush”. Both great artists with two great songs and we’re so proud that Alex can join them at the top!

Check out Josh Skinner’s highly complimentary video below:

Alex Lambert himself.

    …and Josh said some really nice things about Alex…So proud of him (and us for our votes lol)…he beat out Kris Allen, which is AEWSOME!! Way to go Alex!! :heart:

  3. Phillip: Alex’s “I Didn’t Know” got 2nd in Josh Skinners poll!!! I think we should be proud of our work!!! Good job guys!!!  

    I agree. Nice work guys. “I Didn’t Know” is such a quality song. I am still amazed that it hasn’t been made available for purchase yet. Yes Linda, Josh did make some nice comments about Alex too.

  4. And to think,the acoustic promo video edit(which is what most people have heard)is not even the record that will be released to radio, itunes, etc… if IDK is chosen as a single…So-essentially- a DEMO promo acoustic record beat out ALL these well known radio singles :cool:

  5. Not bad at all folks! He doesn’t even have a single really nd he’s a contender already! Congers Alex and good job Alex fanberts!

    • OK I briefly put this in a post, then thought better of it given the squeaky-clean image 19 wants their ex-Idols to keep… but I think it’s OK to share it with the dedicated fans who read all the comments :) Just wouldn’t be fair otherwise!

      Here’s a short preview of an unfinished track by Jarvis Jfly Henderson, a friend of Alex’s from Texas, which includes just a bit of Alex singing on it.

      Thanks Lauren for the tip!

  6. Ha Interesting…that was kinda cool, not a HUGE fan of Rap, but have listened to my share via my son Jake, so I have pretty much heard everything. Alex sounds really good, of course. Too bad he’s not rapping a little himself, Alex not only has a beautiful singing voice, but he has a great speaking voice also, I wish I had a better way to describe it, but to me its very flowing, easy on the ears, some people when they have talking parts in songs, it sounds kinda choppy and uncomfortable to listen to, where Alex has that soothing, goosbumply sound, yeah, thats it..lol :tongue:

  7. LindaW: Alex sounds really good, of course.

    Haha, Linda, I know EXACTLY what you mean. I totally agree with you. :lol: :wub:

  8. Kassandra: Lol so do I Linda. I got a surprise coming in a few hours!! A GOOD one!! Gotta go now but I’ll post it as soon as I’m back! :D  (Reply)

    Kass, you should never say that to a person with a curiosity streak 10 miles long. lol Your killing me. :pinch: :lol:

  9. Kassandra: Lol so do I Linda.
    I got a surprise coming in a few hours!! A GOOD one!! Gotta go now but I’ll post it as soon as I’m back! :D  

    Reallly……well, tick-tock-tick-tock-lol.. :biggrin:

  10. A few hours Kass?? C’mon – you’re killing us!

    Alex sounds great on this track. Maybe I’ll let my Alex check it out (I know I’d be kidding myself if I thought he wasn’t listening to stuff at least this bad!). Maybe I can finally get him in Alex L’s corner?!

  11. What’s so important that you would abandon us, Kassandra? You are cruel! :cool: :tongue:

    You know, last night I re-watched the Josh Skinner interview with Alex from back in April (thanks for the convenient link, btw!), and a comment stood out to me. Alex was telling Josh that IICD had given him a bunch of contacts and opportunities, but it was up to him to pursue them and make the music happen. “They give me all these opportunities, but it’s up to me to follow through.” Also, he said his goal was to just make great music, regardless of the outcome.

    When you think of it, he capitalized on his “opportunities” like no one else from the DH. Everyone he worked with he befriended, people like Ray Ruffin and Cisco Adler. The writers didn’t just clock in and clock out–there was true collaboration. He became genuine friends with both Allan Hinds (guitar teacher) and Mark Renk (vocal coach), and he saw them numerous times off camera and beyond their “paid” teaching visits. You know that Olympia thoroughly enjoyed her piano lessons with Alex, and I’m sure she helped him with further contacts and such. I won’t even *touch* on his appeal to the opposite sex, which totally blindsided the producers. :ninja:

    It kind of blows my mind how many industry people have embraced Alex in such a short period of time. I am kind of an introverted personality, so I can’t even comprehend how he does it. He’s just so genuine and he makes friends so effortlessly. I am impressed beyond belief.

    ETA: Marianne, I wouldn’t listen to the track with your son. Might be a tad embarrassing! Didn’t he like the Maroon 5 vibe?

  12. @Kass- Oh you’re so cruel. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that Alex’s e-mail to Jess last night and your brief disappearance are related.. Good stuff coming! A GIRL CAN DREAM!! :biggrin:

  13. @Lauren, I just saw Jessica’s tweet in Alex’s twitter timeline and thought to myself “Oh goody!!–some news is on the way!”

    Can I play hooky from work this afternoon?? :lol:

    LOL at Alex’s new twitpic. What is that guitar-thingy he’s playing?

  14. Diane: @Lauren, I just saw Jessica’s tweet in Alex’s twitter timeline and thought to myself “Oh goody!!–some news is on the way!”Can I play hooky from work this afternoon??
    LOL at Alex’s new twitpic.What is that guitar-thingy he’s playing?  

    I know – strange guitar, strange photo!! But he sounds pretty geeked about something!!

  15. It’s been 2 hours already, hasn’t it. I’m dying to know what’s going on!

  16. I love surprises, but the suspense is killin me too!!!

    • I’m baaack!

      OK it’s not THAT big I surprise… has nothing to do with whatever is going down and/or communiques with Jessica. Hope I didn’t build it up too much :S Now you’ll all be disappointed! Oh well…. Post in a few.

      ETA: Alright it’s up!

  17. haha, sorry guys it wasn’t about any big news. he got the latest update i sent out and i assumed he saw the newest designs, but i guess not till last night. he was buggin about the latest ones… in a good way.

    “that is too sick!!!”

    lol, surprised he didn’t say legit :cool:
    but happy to see he’s diggin the shirts as much as all the fans!
    anyway, sorry for the “no news”… and i’m still pissed at him for my not being able to fall back asleep thanks to the 2am buzzing on my phone. :angry: hahaha

  18. Kassandra: I’m baaack! OK it’s not THAT big I surprise… has nothing to do with whatever is going down and/or communiques with Jessica. Hope I didn’t build it up too much :S Now you’ll all be disappointed! Oh well…. Post in a few.ETA: Alright it’s up!  (Reply)

    Kass….not disappointed at all! That was great!! I love Alex’s voice in “New World”, it DOES give you goosebumps. Thank you.

  19. That’s a great surprise Kass. I couldn’t be any happier with my new download! Love that song! Nice collaboration Jfly and Alex. :w00t:

    @Jessica – What a nice e-mail to have received so early in the morning! It had to make you feel good even though you didn’t get much sleep;)

  20. Honestly-its good enough to be on the album.I know 19 has an aversion to ever letting their artists put a solo-write out ,but its a very nice change-up piece,and hope they’ll consider it… :cool:

  21. alleycatfan: And to think,the acoustic promo video edit(which is what most people have heard)is not even the record that will be released to radio, itunes, etc… if IDK is chosen as a single…So-essentially- a DEMO promo acoustic record beat out ALL these well known radio singles   (Reply)

    Yep! And here’s a great big KISS to Josh Skinner. I love him! I love that he loves Alex and promotes him so fiercely. I was so tired last night that I didn’t even check in (shame on me). I have to laugh, though, at how you were all on pins and needles waiting for the big news. We do get a little antsy, don’t we?

    And, finally, great tees Jessica. WE love them and I’m thrilled that Alex loves them too. Sheesh, I’d love to see that face right now, bouncing around, doing whatever he’s doing. :ninja:

  22. So proud of Alex and so grateful to Josh for continuing to support Alex in his career! It’s so great to have him be a fan of Alex and help us keep his name out there! :biggrin: And I’m proud of us too, haha :wink:
