I`m gonna use my bi-monthly blog post to bemoan the fact that Adam Lambert did not win American Idol. Why America why?
I started off as a Danny Gokey fan. Danny could do no wrong as far as I was concerned. I loved his voice and I loved his story. I suppose his story was what got me liking him in the first place.
But as the show progressed it became blatantly obvious that AI had uncovered probably the most talented male artist in the world. It started when he sang "Mad World". He came out in a suit, with his hair gelled back and I thought my wife was gonna have a seizure. The sensitivity in his voice made me sit up and take notice.
He followed that up with my favourite performance when he did "Tracks of my tears". I became a fan. Adam was consistently the best performer on the show. He took chances. I mean he did Michael Jackson, The Rolling Stones, U2, Tears for fears. There is nothing this man cannot do.
I am a huge AI fan. I watched the first season while holidaying in New Zealand and have watched every season since. I am a big fan of Carrie Underwood, Chris Daughtry and David Cook. All of them were amazing but none of them even comes close to Adam Lambert.
He is unique, brilliant and more talented than any Idol before and probably after.
If you get a chance go to MP3boo and download his AI album. Listen to "One", the studio version. I tell you, amazing doesn`t even begin to describe it.
This is a studio recording of "Tracks of my tears". Sit back and enjoy.
