Relive the performances by Nick Mitchell, Adam Lambert and the rest of Group 2 in photos
Adam Lambert of 'American Idol'
Singer: ADAM LAMBERT
Monkeys As Critics Take: This is the second straight week that the singer who received the most pre-Top 36 exposure (other than Nick/Normund, obviously) also got the closing pimp spot. The musical theater does exactly the version of "Satisfaction" that I'd expect to hear when the inevitable Rolling Stones compilation musical hits Broadway in the next few years. It's range-y, dynamic and well-enuncianced. At times Adam seems to even be doing an impression of Mick Jagger's stage style, but it's not Mick Jagger, it's a stage performer throwing in Mick Jagger grace notes. If I had to describe Adam in two words, those words would be "entertaining" and "manic."
John, Paul, George and Simon Say: Paula, though, has no words to express her love for what she calls an "Adam Lambert Concert." Simon thought parts were excruciatingly bad and parts were brilliant, predicting it will be a love-it/hate-it performance. Randy also loved it. Randy calls him current and compares him to Robert Pattinson. He drops "da bomb." Kara adores his range and technique. Ryan then references "Edward Cullen" and Adam says he loves the book and the movie.
