I don't know about you all, but watching the contestants on American Idol this season has been kind of ho-hum. Oh, I like several of them,
like the bright red-headed Allison,
and the cute one with the unhinged jaw.
But there is only one contestant who's performances I will go back again and again and watch:Adam Lambert.
Even though he's a little more, shall we say, feminine, than I am comfortable with, his voice transcends all. The song choices, the arrangements he chose
(you will notice I said chose - they weren't necessarily his own, and I don't care- they still were new and fresh, and versions that we have not heard
-and the emotion that he puts into his performances
-especially the emotion - have you looked into his face when he sings?
And last night, when so much of his performance got cut
(by those who set their DVR's to only record an hour of Idol - don't you know by now what a BIG mistake THAT is. . . )
when the show ran way way over after the judges went yammering on and on at Lil Rounds (a great singer, but not at all original), will that hurt his chances?
Will he still get enough votes to keep him in the running?
I could be wrong, but. . .
I think that Adam is THE Contestant that the judges would use their Judges Save for.
But I think he'll be voted back, anyway.
We'll see. . . only 2 and a half hours until the Results Show. . .
(am I addicted to this show, or what?
and you're not?
Rrrrrriiiight. . . )
