An evening with Yoko Ono
Examiner.com - USA - You either appreciate Yoko Ono or you don't.  Her unique view of the world, her art events and her political campaigns have been praised and criticized through the years. For most, though, those appraisals generally come at a distance from third-person accounts. It's rare that people get the chance to experience her first hand. For about roughly 500 people at Stanford's Dinkelspiel Auditorium on Jan. 14, they got to do just that.

The crowd waiting outside had been told that Yoko had been delayed slightly. But it wasn't too long before two cars, one containing Yoko Ono, rolled up to the

American Idol runner-up agrees record deal
RTE.ie - Ireland - Blake Lewis, the runner-up from the sixth series of 'American Idol', has signed a deal for his debut album.

Billboard reports that Lewis has agreed a contract with 19 Recordings/Arista.

The album, provisionally titled 'Audio Daydream (ADD)', is due for release late in 2007.

Speaking to Billboard earlier this month about the album, Lewis said: "It's your favourite 80s mix tape - very inspired by Michael Jackson, Prince, Erasure, Depeche Mode, Duran Duran, the Cure. It's all over the map, really - very influenced by 80s hip-hop, old school breaks, whatever."

American Idol Runner-Up Blake Lewis Signs Record Deal with Arista
BuddyTV - USA - Blake Lewis, runner-up on last season's American Idol, has signed his first record deal.  The beat-boxing specialist from Bothell, Washington has inked a deal with Clive Davis's Artista record label and will release an album later this year.  Lewis was a surprise finalist on this past season of American Idol and while he was destined to lose to the safer and less unusual Jordin Sparks, he gained a loyal base of fans during his time on Idol.

It's being mongered in a few places that the album is provisionally titled “Audio Daydream (ADD)”, but who knows whether that's the truth.  Earlier

Disney Original Movie Sets All-Time 'High'
Multichannel News (subscription) - New York, NY, USA - Disney Channel has set a new bar: 17.2 million viewers for a single airing of a basic cable show. And a second bar, as well: 33.1 million viewers, for three showings over a three-day weekend. In effect, one out of every 10 Americans watched High School Musical 2.

“It’s a marker for the TV industry and another defining moment for cable,” said TV historian Tim Brooks, likening it to CNN’s images of the first Gulf War in early 1990s, which put cable news programming on the television map.

In the last couple years, Disney Channel has made a habit of jumping over

Daughtry pays tribute to Layne Staley
Seattle Times - United States - It almost sounds like a crossword puzzle clue: What "American Idol" contestant is an unlikely fan of grunge, specifically Layne Staley of Alice In Chains? The answer in eight letters, with enough juicy consonants to make Will Shortz wiggle, is Daughtry.

In more than a few ways, Chris Daughtry's self-titled alternative rock band was an odd choice to headline the annual concert that serves to celebrate what would have been the birthday of Staley, particularly on the milestone of what would have been his fortieth.

Staley, a Kirkland native, died in 2002, and though his impact on music remains strong, there is

Kelly Clarkson prefers 'Canadian Idol'
Kelly Clarkson
Digital Spy - UK - American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson has revealed that she prefers the Canadian version of the show.

The 'Since U Been Gone' singer, who recently appeared as a guest on Canadian Idol, claimed that the programme is superior because contestants are allowed to play instruments.

"Your Idol is so much better! They don't let you near instruments on American Idol," Kelly told CTV’s eTalk. She added: "Yours is so cool."

Clarkson was voted as the winner of American Idol's first season in 2002. She recently released her third album, My December.

Charles Googe: Franchitti earns more miles as a frequent flier
Ashley Judd
Albuquerque Tribune - Albuquerque, NM, USA - Dario Franchitti likes to fly.

His helicopter, that is.

In the past two Indy Racing League events, Franchitti has gotten airborne in a way he doesn't prefer.

In Michigan, it wasn't his fault. Dan Wheldon hit his right rear tire and Franchitti went straight in the air.

But last Saturday in Kentucky, it was his fault. He apparently didn't know the race was over and plowed into the back of Kosuke Matsuura's car, sending Franchitti on another wild ride through the air.

Luckily for the Scotsman, he was uninjured in both accidents. He had a bruised nose after Michigan, but hey, that's nothing compared to

Indy 500 champ Franchitti could be RCR option for '08
Nascar - USA - The next prominent open-wheel driver to break into NASCAR could be Indianapolis 500 champion Dario Franchitti.

But don't expect to see Ashley Judd flitting along the frontstretch in sundresses just yet. Franchitti is friends with Nextel Cup team owner Richard Childress, who's had preliminary discussions with the 34-year-old Scotsman about possibly piloting a fourth car for Richard Childress Racing next season.

"If you watch him race, he races every lap just as hard as he can," Childress said Friday at Michigan International Speedway. "That's what impresses me about him. A lot of open-wheel guys have come here and tried it. I think
