Morning (latte) update.

Not taking into account any problems with Amazon’s website (which apparently there were last night), Taylor Hicks’ debut album has settled this morning at #22 on the Top Sellers list. It’s the highest pre-sale item by a mile (Gwen Stefani’s The Sweet Escape is second to Taylor at #65), and it even beats out such already-released items such as Corinne Bailey Rae’s debut, Justin Timberlake’s FutureSex/LoveSounds (ha!), and Fergie’s The Dutchess (yes, that’s the one with “Fergalicious”). Good for Taylor, although I have to confess that I have no idea where his pre-sale stance ranks in the pantheons of other Idols.

Katharine McPhee’s TBD (yes, I do get the slightest smug satisfication out of typing that, for some reason) isn’t in the Top 100, but in fairness, she’s yet to come up with either a name for the album or permanent cover art, and once those things are set (which should happen soon—her release date is three weeks away), the album will likely move up in pre-sale ranks. Until then, though, her fans have made sure that her Amazon tags are all glowingly positive: “best music,” “vocally amazing,” “beautiful” and “sexy” all made the list. The latter two, of course, I find hilarious, because I do find it rather incongruous that people would be searching for beautiful/sexy singers. Heh.

And lest we leave poor Daughtry off the list, he’s holding steady at #7 on the Top Sellers list.

What the kids are sayin’

"I hate them all. The judges, TPTB, the blatant manipulation, the songs, the contestants, everything. I'm a die-hard Cook fan, but for the love of god, at least try to look like you're enjoying yourself up there! Please? Syesha was awesome but she ruined it by being completely shameless and disgusting. Yes, being on American Idol is exactly like the civil rights movement, except for the part where you're fighting to make the world a better place."

"All I can say after the disgusting display tonight of favoritism towards the mediocrity that is David A. - good luck trying to market and make money off of that kid, American Idol. (Not to mention good luck dealing with his father.) All the teeny boppers may buy up his American Idol coronation single, but they will quickly forget about him before the album comes out. And I shudder to think of a David A. album - song after song of unrelenting sameness and heavy breathing. Why they are pimping him for the win is beyond me."

"This show was simply a hot buttered mess tonight. And Jason "needs to be arrested for what he did to I Shot the Sheriff. But I hope he stays. He amuses me. "
