Might want to go to youtube and search his name, there are some, ahem,
other interesting videos of him.

He looks to be the most interesting, but if he goes too wild as he has
mention in interviews, might lose some popularity. He version of
Satisfaction was excellent.

Adam seems to already have "THE haircut" for him, "THE clothes", and so on, to make him come across well on the stage and project an image. American Idol seems to have teams that work with the top 12 to get their hair and clothes right, and I suspect they even work with them on song choice to some extent, but I don't think they'll need to do much with him at all. The others may start seeming better and better, and he might continue to look and sound pretty much the same.

I'll have to check out those youtube videos you mention, later on!

Adam reminds me of the show Adam's Family (not because of the name). I think it's his makeup and hair that makes him look a little bit like a possible relative of Adam's family.

I adore American Idol! My guilty secret is that if I could have been anything in a former or the next life it would be a singer. Unfortunately, in this life I cannot hold a tune. So watching these unknowns get up on the stage and knock it out is great vicarious fun for me. I really don't enjoy the awful singers, too excrutiating for me!

My favorite this year is Megan Corkrey of Sandy, Utah. A really interesting singer! She's so charming and I love her tatooed arm and that she's a young single mom. American Idol Top 13 Party | TV | Entertainment | Winnipeg Sun

E-gads. There are some "interesting" vids of Adam out there. I should have known when I saw his black nailpolish Well, I like the guy anyway. He has a real talent and should be entertaining to watch this season!

I think Simon has a thing for her! She is very good and I'm glad to see her in the top 13. I'd like to see what Megan can do. She has a very special quality about her and an awesome voice.

I think Simon is just happy to find someone original! So many of the others are just more of the same. The black singer with the big voice. The "Backstreet" guy. The blues guy. The "janis joplin imitator". Etc. Megan seems different and can sing too!

I like Megan a lot also but my reasons I think are similar to Simon's.

I ran into one of the contestants yesterday at a mall in Burlington VT. Was sitting at the food court when one of my kids spots the gay guy with the facial body piercings(Nathaniel Marshal),she yells out hey isnt that the guy from American Idol?We swapped thumbs up and he continued trying to eat his lunch but now that people recognized him he was barraged with people wanting pictures with him and autographs.

Posted odds at a gambling site:

Adam Lambert 2:1
Danny Gokey 2.5:1
Lil Rounds 5:1
Allison Iraheta 7.5:1
Scott MacIntyre 10:1
Matt Giraud 12:1
Alexis Grace 12:1
Anoop Desai 15:1
Megan Corkrey 15:1
Jorge Nunez 25:1
Kris Allen 30:1
Jasmine Murray 30:1
Michael Sarver 50:1

Looks pretty good to me, with the exception of Adam Lambert as the favorite.

I just don't get it. Dude looks like a lady (Joan Jett):

Maybe the people who run the show are looking at his marketability in todays youth market, Bands my two teenagers are into these days

Cinema Bizarre

I think the best two were Danny and Adam. Danny had better vocals so I put him in first. Anoop and Jorge should be the two going home.

Danny and Adam were amazing. Adam is so much better than the others. And Danny is incredibly talented.

Anoop and Jorge were not as amazing, but I enjoyed listening to them, too!! I thought Anoop did a lot better than he was given credit for doing. I could listen to Jorge all night.

If I had to pick someone to go home, it would be Michael.

I just love this show, though someone I know said it was like the "Gong Show" of times past, without the gong.

He's hard to miss. I think he's great but doubt I'm his type
