With the "American Idol" tour winding down, it's almost time to see how the Season 8 finalists fare in the world of -- gasp! -- original material.
Of course, most eyes are on winner Kris Allen and runner-up Adam Lambert. Allen's album drops Nov. 17, while Lambert's drops Nov. 24. (via MJ's Big Blog)
Will it be a battle of Ruben/Clay proportions? We'll have to wait and see.
In other news, we recently learned Danny Gokey signed a recording contract with 19 Recordings and RCA Nashville.
I'm not entirely surprised he's going country. I figured it was either that or adult contemporary. And we all know how well the AC market works for former finalists.
Gokey's first single is expected to premiere later this fall, sources say.
