Adam Lambert had a busy week!

The artist performed in Central Park on Friday for Good Morning America's summer concert series — just a few days after he dished about the cancellation of American Idol!

The Ghost Town singer was the runner up in the show's eighth season back in 2009, but has arguably had the better career over season winner Kris Allen!

So what did the 33-year-old have to say about the long running music competition's upcoming final season? He thinks "it's about time" the show comes to an end, explaining:

"It's great that there's talent that can be discovered via TV, on shows like Idol, The Voice and X Factor. [But] I think things are changing a little bit. Things like YouTube have now become a great way for people to launch their talent, as well. I think things might be shifting a little bit, so we'll see what the next phase is."

The next phase for Lambert is the release of his brand new album The Original High, which hit stores on Tuesday!

Check out the videos (below) to watch the artist perform new song Ghost Town and title track The Original High, as well as his 2009 hit Whataya Want from Me!

Tell us how you really feel, Mariah Carey!

In a recent radio interview, the pop diva sat down with Australian KIIS FM hosts Kyle and Jackie O to promote her new album #1 to Infinity – and also threw some shade at her old gig as judge on American Idol!

Mimi gave a scathing review of her time spent on the recently canceled singing competition, dubbing it "so boring and so fake." Ouch!

kelly clarkson doesnt want daughter to see film

It seems Kelly Clarkson is still not over her flop, From Justin To Kelly.

In a recent interview, the Heartbeat Song singer was asked if she would want to burn all copies of the modern musical.

She quipped:

"No, I think I would have to own it first. But that is something I will look into."

LOLz! Apparently, she has no interest in ever seeing the movie again — and does NOT want her daughter, River Rose, to see it either.

She shared:

"I have a little joke with our nanny, because she told me she loves that movie. She was like, 'My roommate and I used to watch it all the time! I'm totally going to show your daughter From Justin to Kelly.' I'm like, 'I will fire you.'"

But Kelly, children learn from our mistakes? WE KID!!

However, by the time River is old enough to see the movie, American Idol will have been long off the air so we doubt she'd get the cultural significance! Tragic!

Jennifer Lopez brought her best to the American Idol Grand Finale Wednesday night in LA, although we wouldn't expect any less.

The new Las Vegas headliner kicked things off on the red carpet in a gorgeous black lace Zuhair Murad (duh!) gown with opaque paneling to preserve her modesty.

But that wasn't all! During the show she changed into a white beaded and mesh naked gown to perform a cover of Rihanna's Diamonds with Harry Connick Jr. and Keith Urban.

And at one point she put on a super cute fit-and-flare black mini dress!

So many looks, so little time.
