We’d like to take a moment to say Hi! to all of Alex Lambert’s international fans. You may not comment much, but we know you’re there, and we like having you around!
Here’s a map showing recent visitors to this site (each dot represents a visitor – click to enlarge):
The map is a bit unclear cause in some countries the dots are all located in the same small space on top of each other, so here are the countries with the largest Alex fanbases:
We of course get lots of visits from the English speaking countries: Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the UK…
And I think we all know that Alex has TONS of fans in Asia, where Idol aired pretty much at the same time as it did in the US. The vast majority of these fans are from Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand and Singapore, as well as China and Japan… boy do you guys love Alex! Hi!
The Alex love also extends across Europe… The Netherlands and Sweden REALLY dig him, as does Spain, Belgium and Denmark. Germans are HUGE fans, too… but the country in Europe with the biggest crush on Alex has to be… France! Bonjour French fans!
Now, what some Americans may not know is that in many countries around the world, American Idol often airs months – even a year – after its original air date in the US. And there’s nothing we like to see more than Alex fans suddenly popping up in a new country once the show starts airing there! Our guess is that the most recent country to start broadcasting Idol Season 9 is Estonia… has he been voted off yet guys? If not, get your tissues ready!
Last, but not least, is South America: Venezuela, Argentina and Chile all love them some Lambert, but his biggest following is in Brazil – Olá Brazil!!
So now that we’ve got the introductions out of the way, why don’t all you international Alex fans say Hi back? We’d love to hear from you – in any language you feel comfortable in! When did American Idol air in your country? Did everyone catch Alex fever like in the US? How much are you dying for Alex to come and do a show in your country one day?
Don’t be shy – just cause you’re far away doesn’t mean you can’t participate! And if we didn’t mention your country, but you think we should have, let us know that, too!
Update: OK is Idol showing in Malaysia now? Or are you all just trying to get a mention in this post? Well… whatever the reason, hello sudden influx of peeps from Malaysia!
