I admit that I follow American Idol. But just to be clear, I really don’t start watching until the second Hollywood week. You see, I have perfect pitch and all the auditions drive me insane. The judges deserve to be paid combat pay for what they listen to every season prior to Hollywood.
All this being said, I’ve had my eye on Adam Lambert. This man is a superb vocalist with an amazing sense of theater that has yet to disappoint me. I loved his Johnny Cash rendition of ‘Ring of Fire’.
It was brave, unique and truly honored the song. I loved the middle eastern flavor of the arrangement. Not many people could have pulled it off. He performed it without apology, confident in his work.
But last night. Well last night, was beyond description.
If he doesn’t win American Idol, I’m done with the show.
