Now on to the real reason I'm posing this blog. Adam Lambert. I love him, I think he may be my favorite contestant from ANY of the seasons. (I know, I thought it would always be Carrie Underwood for me too, guess not) Before I rant about why I like him I'll take some time to talk about some of the other male contestants. Kris Allen is wonderfully cute and I like his voice. I hope he makes it at least to the top 10 so he'll get to go on the tour, but I don't see him winning it. One guy who I can see winning is Danny Gokey. The guy can sing (even though I don't think hes anywhere near as incredible as lot of people do) and he's got the whole dead wife sob story going for him. (I don't mean to sound insensitive about it, but you know it's true.) The other male contestant I feel deserves a mention is Scott Macintyre who has an OK voice and a vision problem (he's almost blind). He's another guy who the judges rave about but I just don't feel the same as they do.
Now, back to Adam. I just really like him. At first I wasn't sure that I would (and that made me sad because he's gay and I wanted to like him because of that). I hated his song choice of "I Can't Get No Satisfaction," actually, I hate that song no matter who is singing it. (Except for Britney of course, she can do no wrong.) Speaking of Britney, I'm bummed that Adam doesn't include her as one of his favorite female artists along with Xtina and Madonna. (See his Idol Contestant Page Here) Anyway, after tonights performance of "Black and White" by Michael Jackson I officially love Adam. He looked great, he sounded great, and the judges agreed. They gave him rave reviews.
Check out that performance and Paula's opinion:
I do worry that America will not vote for him because he's gay. Americans obviously still have a problem with gay people (you know, since we don't have all the same rights as straight people). Also, I worry that people WILL like him so much that they think he's going to be safe and fail to vote. (It's happened in the past, can you say Daughtry?)
Anyway, this season is going to be great. I have my fingers crossed for a Britney themed week like they did on the X-Factor in the UK.
